Why does Doctor/Master have no tumblr fanbase? Please don’t tell me it’s because there isn’t any master to the eleventh doctor. Please don’t embarrass yourself by saying that. But still, I’d like to know!
Official : Story About the Doctors Child hood bully Torvic.
Seventh Doctor: “And so the stranger spoke. He told him of two young boys growing up together in a land far, far away from Perfushion Their world was one of rules. A stuffy class ridden society and as Jackie and Shafer striven to escape their social chains so they strove to shatter their own.”
“They would run away from their classes, run free through fields and forest. Often as they tired of running they’d sit by the river and stare up at the stars. They would talk about how one day they would be truly free and how they would wander the stars and see the universe. (Sounds of two muttering children and laughter) They were united in their yearnings to escape and be free. They were however also united in their suffering at the hands of another. Another boy would torment and bully them. For he saw them as simply ants.”
“ One day the ants revolted. They have been playing on the banks of the River Lethe when Torvic, for that was the bully’s name appeared (Mean childish laughter) He wasn’t evil. He was just another naughty young child trying the break the rules. He found the two boys sat by the river. Then one he jumped and pulled one of them down to the water and grabbed his head and pushed it into the flowing stream. (Mean laughter continues now with sound of struggling and splashing) The child struggled vainly as the water went up his nose and down his throat. Torvic wasn’t going to drown him, he was merely doing what bullies do. Seeking control.”
Man: “But … but what about the other boy? what did he do?”
Seventh Doctor: “ This is where it all began. Usually when Torvic tormented one of them, the other would sit and wait.. Helpless, (Sound of crying) but this time something awoke in the other child. (angry screaming) Blind fury and anger, sick with anger. He charged at Torvic. Stopping only to pick up a large stone. ( A cracking sound and splash) Torvic never stood a chance. The murder pulled his friend from the water and they stood there is silence Watched as the blood flowed from Torvic’s shattered skull, Watched as the blood flowed into the stream. Watched unable to comprehend what one of them had done. The other boy , being of a sounder mind realized immediately what punishment they would face.”
Man: “But…but they had only been trying to protect themselves.”
Seventh Doctor “One of them had taken a life. They knew that if they were caught, they would never realize their hopes for freedom. They would never see the universe.”
Man: “What did they do?”
Seventh Doctor: “ They pulled Torvic’s body from the river. (splashing sound) They pulled him onto the dry land. They covered his body with branches from the trees and then together as one they set the funeral pyre a light ,and together holding hands they watched as his body burned. (sound of fire) They watched as Torvic’s skin bubbled and burned and became smoke. They watched as they send him back to nature.”
currently thinking about Theta in Academy-age not being able to sleep (because scary monsters - and what was that fucking thing in my barn?!) But Koschei can’t stand seeing his best friend scared and tries to help. He tries everything to help his friend sleep.But tea, mathematical equations, reciting all the artifacts of Rassilion, experimental medication from Ushas’ lab … nothing works. (Although the last one turned Theta blue for a few days so that might count as some sort of success. Ushas was disappointed though - she aimed for something slightly more purple.) After several more utter failures Koschei tries reading stories to his friend. So one night he slips into Theta’s bed and starts reading some of the old Gallifreyan fairytales from their childhood to his friend- and it more or less works… cus at least Koschei falls asleep after a only a few chapters. So now he sleeps there with the book on his chest and slightly snuggled up against Theta. Theta never had real hope that any of all these ideas would actually work, but now with Koschei by his side he does fall asleep. And when he wakes up the next morning he has a mob of dark hair tugged under his chin and can’t recall having a single nightmare.
Agreed, they won't be getting any grandparent of the year awards any time soon! I'm also very happy to find someone else who believes that Master is a grandparent of Susan too! Is it ok if I ask what convinced you? For me it was a combination of what was said in the Magicians Apprentice, them knowing each other when Susan was little and how I'm positively convinced that their side of the family tree is where Susan's high-level psychic skills, meme love and occasional dark-humour came from.
for me it’s the fact that looming a kid is 100% a thing theta and koschei would have done while drunk
