10/M Website announcement

Mods, I hope this is OK, but I've been asked by Caina Fuller (who is currently unwell) to pass on the information that she no longer has the domain name and her 10/M fiction website is now hosted at - please could everyone update their bookmarks accordingly. And I'm sure everyone will join me in wishing Caina a speedy recovery.

She Walks In Beauty

Title: She Walks In Beauty
Author: Persiflage_1
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor/Martha, Martha/Tom Milligan, Tenth Doctor/Lucy Saxon (sort of), Master/Lucy Saxon, Master/Doctor (implied)
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: The Last of the Time Lords.
Summary: This is a re-visioning of the finale to Season 3.
Disclaimer: The BBC owns "Doctor Who" - if they didn't, Martha wouldn't have been banished to Cardiff !
Author Notes: This story was partly inspired by this NSFW picture: I looked at it and decided it was very like the Master to do that to the Doctor (although being a family show, that couldn't have been shown on air). The picture also seemed to tie in with the Master's treatment of Lucy Saxon – in "The Last of the Time Lords" she looks like someone who has been abused physically and mentally, and given his preference for being the Master, probably sexually as well. So this is a fairly dark, angsty story, although it has a somewhat happier ending than the original finale did.

The title of this story comes from the title of George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron's poem of the same name, which you'll find in full here.

Oh and a warning that this fic is approximately 9400 words long - sorry !

Martha wasn't sure how long she'd been travelling when she first became aware of the Doctor's mental presence in the back of her head; she'd come to an awareness of him being there only gradually. She thought it was about four months after she had started travelling. She couldn't talk to him but she knew he was aware of where she was and what she was doing because occasionally she'd get a mental nudge not to talk to someone or not to use a particular road, and later she'd find he'd kept her safe from harm. She hadn't known, the first time it happened, what he was doing, and she'd nearly been killed by a couple of the spheres, so after that she'd paid attention. And now she was almost at the end of her journey, about to head back to England for the completion of her world-wide trek, and she couldn't sense the Doctor any longer. He'd disappeared at some point in the last hour and she was trying not to panic, but she was worried that his disappearance meant that the Master had finally uncovered their plan and had reconfigured the Archangel Network. Which would mean that all she had endured during the past year had been for nothing and there was now no way to save the Earth. Since she had no means of finding out whether their plan was uncovered until someone arrived to kill or capture her, she had no choice but to continue, to get back to England and complete her last act.
