Is there even a tiny chance that this will end up being a multi chapter story? You could go to some great places with this start!(althought having it on it's own it's still amazing!)
Author's Response: I hadn\'t thought about it quite that way. I had this bit of interaction between the Master and the Doctor kicking around in my head for quite awhile before it lent itself to drabble-tag. Sometimes it\'s the Master in control and the Doctor on the defensive. But it doesn\'t really seem to . . . *go* anywhere, yet. It\'s static. I\'m open to ideas, actually. The same incident shows up from Jack\'s point of view in \"And the Greatest of These . . . \" (though of course, he doesn\'t see this part). But it\'s a different kind of story.
"Safe behind the battlements of a dead language"--I love that line, that image, so much. :D
Author's Response: Thank you! Every so often, I feel like I really get one line perfect, somehow. This one makes the list. :)
