Oh, my dear, you certainly know how to carefully plot and plant a tragedy, don't you? Very well done!
Author's Response: *blushes* I have always felt the Master could have been so much more. I swear that book haunted me (and still does to this day). The fact that it might not even EXIST is...horrible. So I took what I could remember, a dash of canon (that needed fixing imho), jammed it all together and hoped it worked. I am thrilled to bits that it did - and rather excited that I finally wrote Academy fic. May not be the BEST, but it is (at least) adequate, which makes me happy. Makes me even happier that you seem to like it so! Bless you, lovie. (as for tragedy...it seems my characters are more than happy to create it - and do it so well, they hardly need my help to do it!) *HUGS* Mandy
