Now We Have a Map of the Stars by Zauberer_sirin (PG-13)

Very excited to be this month's special reccer! Here is my first rec I hope you enjoy it!:

Fandom Category: Doctor Who/Torchwood/Sarah Jane Adventures
Pairing: Martha Jones/Master + various canon pairings
Fic Title: Now We Have a Map of the Stars
Author: zauberer_sirin
Link: http://42number.livejournal.com/tag/nwhamots (scroll to the bottom of the page for Prologue)
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/Violence,War,Temporary character death
Genre: Romance, Drama, Angst, War, Humor.
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 1 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: total AU: Martha never left and the Master was never killed. The Doctor keeps his promise of taking care of him. Sort of. Martha helps. Kind of. This story is so well written and the author does such a great job of doing the almost impossible she keeps the Master in character. So don't expect to be overly fond of him for most of the fic, but like Martha you will find yourself sympathizing and understanding him more until he ruins it by being well...the Master. But this story isn't only about Master/Martha's burgeoning relationship, it is about all the relationships in the very dysfunctional Doctor Who family. Both Jack and Sarah Jane and their issues with the Doctor make an appearance. Also there are Martha's host of issues with the Doctor and her very conflicting emotions for and against the Master. Plus the Doctor's issues with companions in general and with the Master specifically, come to play. All of that and they are supposed to be stopping an invasion, that may or may not be happening in their timeline. It is 100,000+ words of delicious drama, adventure, and familial dysfunction.
