scream of the shalka

Ok, so this is my second art swap. This one is for one of my favourite fandom ficwriters - @zabbers. We agreed on a prompt “Twissy in the Shalka!verse with cyber!Missy” (or something like that). For those of you who have no idea what Shalka!verse is - please, google Scream of the Shalka immidiately! I hope you won’t regret it :) But basically, the Doctor builds an android that contains the mind of the Master. And for some reason, this is one of my favourite ideas ever! I’m a huge fan, and I was super excited to find a fellow fan in @zabbers. Hope you’ll like it at least half as much as i like your writing, darling!

What if the Doctor had built himself a robot Master like he did in "Scream of the Shalka"

Imagine if “Scream of the Shalka” actually happened into the Doctor Who universe. For those who don’t know what that is: look it up! The Doctor somehow managed to build a robot Master, and they were space boyfriends and travelled together for a while.

If this happened in the main Doctor Who universe, it would be impossible for the robot to hold the actual consciense of the Master. I’d headcanon that shalka!Master has a perfect copy of the real Master’s memories and personality. The doctor probably built him because he felt too lonely. Then eventually deactivated him, for some reason.

Can we talk about Missy’s reaction if she found out the Doctor built himself a copy of her. I don’t think she would be angry about it. Quite the contrary, actually. I think she would tease the Doctor with every opportunity. (And possibly a bit touched)

“Why, Doctor, I knew my loss broke your hearts, but I never thought you were quite so desperate to have me back.”

“Should I be flattered, or should I be jealous?”

“Tell me, my dear, do you make robots after all of your friends, or am I just that special?”

This probably ends in self flirting, if “The Doctor Falls” taught us anything.

..........but WAITAMINUTE

So Missy lives in the TARDIS now. Trying to be good, fixing things, watching the Doctor doing his adventuring and stuff, worrying about him, tolerating his companions even…

My question is:

Did the Doctor make an android body for her too, or it would be too much of a coincidence?

Because we’ve seen it before, you know. With another (alternative) Doctor. It was all rather sweet.
