Title: Tea At Alice's
Summary: Alice has a cunning plan to get the Doctor and Master back together. 50's AU.
Rating: PG or something
Characters/pairings: Master/Doctor, Alice Cartwright
Author's notes: This is basically just an explanation of what the crap happened on October 8th at two in the afternoon at Alice's house when she invited the Doctor and Master over for tea in the canon of our LiveJournal roleplay. She messaged them both, telling them to come over without saying that the other would be there in an attempt to get them back together after the huge fight they had three weeks ago.

Alice to Doctor:
"I thought maybe we could talk in person about all this. I may have lost my temper a bit on your journal before, and I want to make up for it. How about afternoon tea and coffee at my house at 2pm tomorrow? I made cinnamon cookies!"
Doctor: I don't actually know...I can't find it in my message history. Leah halp?

Alice to Master: "I was wondering if you might like to stop by tomorrow afternoon for a bit of a chat. I've talked to the Doctor about your current predicament, and I wanted to let you know in person what I found out. Say 2pm, my house? I'll have cinnamon cookies!"
Master: "My peace of mind is already shattered, so all right. Why not. I appreciate your assistance in this matter. I'm pretty much always free, especially since the...headaches started. Difficult to get work done. As I'm fairly certain they're stress-related, I imagine that a tea party will prove to be just the thing.
Oh sorry, of COURSE I mean simply 'tea'. It's hardly a 'party' when there's only two people attending. Phrasing is so important, don't you think?"

Anyway, that should be all the back ground needed, really. Here's the story.

I am not a fan of dystopian futures, have I ever mentioned that? Maybe not here. But originally, I avoided sci-fi like the plague because I was completely convinced that it was all horrid dystopian futures. Which is true to a certain extent. Quite a lot of it is.
So now I'm being forced to read The Handmaid's Tale by Atwood and I...well, I would never read this on my own, let's say that. It just makes me angry and depressed and as I was already angry from last night (due to [ profile] moralsremitted) and also depressed (due to let's not get into that) it is NOT HELPING.
Especially because all of this stuff it has with the women getting banned from work and being forced to be housewives (initially, at least) made me realise that I'm fucking WRITING a dystopian future with this 50's AU and I never noticed before, due to how cracky it generally is. But now that it's got a depressing plotline itself I've realised what I've done. I hope this doesn't depress me from doing it! There are wonderful strong women in the series: Donna keeping her job and fighting against piggish men and stereotypes of the society for the sheer stubbornness of HAVING to because she couldn't look at herself otherwise, staying in a job when she would actually gladly get married but for the loss of her rights; Rose, who as far as Leah and I can tell is off by herself fighting aliens, to hell with the Doctor; River, who wields her sexuality like a weapon, breaking through the shocked morals of the society like a battering ram; even, or, especially Alice who has begun to feel as if perhaps not everything is right, her problems aren't necessarily HER fault, that there is another, better way. I mean, hell, even the Doctor is trying to break down this stupid society somewhat although the Master REALLY ISN'T HELPING.
Shit, I'm tired, guys. I've been reading too much Margaret Atwood.
Anyway, I wonder if I should be going more into depth with this society. What happened to MAKE it this way?
I wish it was crack again.

If anyone cares (Read: Marion), the plotline in the 50's AU journals right now?
Completely encapsulated by this song.

It goes from just before the Master pushed too far to the present point.
I love Tears For Fears.

The character journals went all serious on me and Leah, guys.
First, the Doctor pissed off the Master by insinuating that the Master missed him and was affectionate.
And then the Master was EXTREMELY petty and FFFFFFFFFF

[ profile] theatricmood:
Did he (Jacob) NEED to stay in the house though? He kept using the good glasses...

[ profile] moralsremitted: His home was in ARIZONA. I'm not a COMPLETE bastard to my minions.
Unlike you and some of your COMPANIONS, I might add.
Tell me, did you ever ACTUALLY go back and get that Companion of yours, Miss Smith?
Or that one, the name you keep mentioning and assuming I won't notice...Jamie, was it?

[ profile] theatricmood:Your door better be dead locked.

And then we were both like "WUT NAO, DOCTAH?!?!" so I wrote out what happened in Skype with tips from Leah. I edited this a LOT. Because most of it was just me waffling about what happened next and Leah going "OH SHIT". I left a small bit of it in so you get the idea. XD




So, uh, now there's a BLOODY MASSIVE PLOT and the Doctor has left home and the Master is going to go fucking APESHIT and and....well, fuck guys, we thought this was a CRACK AU. Remember how I said Leah and I should stop our latenight talking? That still stands.
brb_evil: (Whee)
Okay, I have FAR too much fun with [ profile] moralsremitted. I totally sympathise with [ profile] shinyopals and her character journal now. Even with no-one else having joined yet, it is remarkably addictive.
Not that I'm going to STOP.
I'm just worried this may get out of hand.
At least I'll enjoy going mad.

Off to start doing Masterly things.
Layouts are hard to find.
I have no skill with graphics whatsoever.

This is a post from my new computer!
Weeeeeeell...for a given definition of "new", I suppose. It's from around...2003, maybe, or a bit later and it's my dad's old computer BUT that does mean I got it for free. So I feel pretty cool, with my constant unfettered computer access and my ACTUALLY schmancy new computer bag and THE INTERNETS.
So even if I couldn't buy that lovely purple laptop that I was vaguely hoping for, this is nearly as good. Plus, my dad gave me his old external harddrive and he's going to give me his old webcam. So I'm totes set.
Life is good.
Plus, this means that I'm going to get together with Lolcorn soon and we can start that 50's AU LJ thing we've been meaning to do for a while/any time one of us (meaning always me) remembers.
I just have to get through this week.
Side note: I was initially going to call it Jamie, to fit my 'male companions theme' as my other computer is called Turlough but as I was trying to install and fix as much as I could on this comp, I ended up sort of stroking the side of the screen affectionately and calling it Lucy.
So there you go, apparently this computer is called Lucy Saxon. Awright.
