Honestly, I think she really does drive herself. *The Doctor was working on some project or other, so the Master had been left with Donna to keep an eye on him. Naturally, they'd wound up going on an adventure instead.* Although Other knows why we're here. Unless she wants us to save the day while the Doctor's busy, but I'm really not the saving people type. Quite the opposite, in fact.

*He shrugs and opens the TARDIS doors, then winces.* Ah yes, charming as ever. Don't look, Donna, its called the Torture Pits for a reason. I used to come here on vacation. It's managed to go even more downhill somehow.

I really don't think we should wander off too far without the Doctor... [ She peeks out of the door, instantly wishing she hadn't. It makes her feel sick to her stomach. ]

Yeah, we should probably just sit and wait. Probably took a wrong turn. Pretty sure this isn't where we're supposed to be. I mean why would the Old Girl bring us here of all places?

Same reason she brings us anywhere but wherewhen the Doctor wants; to save it. And she must have waited to come here for a reason. I'm guessing it's because I've been here before.

*He grins at her.* The exit is this way. Take my hand and close your eyes, alright?

Ugh. I have a bad feeling about this. The torture pits? Seriously? This cannot end well.

*He leads her out of the room, away from the more . . . unpleasant areas.* Okay, what do you want to do about this? I can probably get us to the Emperor, if you want to stop all of it. That's what you would be doing with the Doctor, right?

[ She's trying really, really hard not to throw up. Her stomach is churning from the sights and sounds and the stench. Oh God, the stench is vile. ]

Yeah... we really need to stop this...

Okay. This way, then.

*He leads her through the corridors to the Emperor's suite, then barges in without a care in the world.*

Cranwell! You're still Emperor? . . . You owe me 50 nupins from our last bet.

*The Emperor opens his mouth to say something, but doesn't get a chance.* I know I won that bet. I gave the head torturer nightmares winning that bet.

*He grins nastily.* And since you never paid me, I'll just be taking my pound of flesh instead.

*His expression is probably best described as 'aww, how cute,' but he nods.* For now.

*And he turns back to the Emperor.* But you know what I am. And I know we made that bet already, so don't you try that trick. I can smell and taste and feel what day it is, and today--why, today is the last day of the Prazk Empire, isn't it? I always wondered what happened, and now I know; it was me!

*He grins and licks his lips.* Now then, where shall I start? The death of the last Emperor of Prazk ought to be showy. Although I'd rather keep you relatively intact . . . parts of you, at least.

I think I best leave the Emperor to you.

[ Donna glares hard at the Master and if looks could kill he would be a smouldering pile of dead Time Lord right about now. ]

Oi, give over! This is not the way we deal with things! Where's all the diplomacy and discussion and choices?! You don't just destroy people!

KK, just checking

It's not how the Doctor does it. It may not be how you do it. But this is my reward for being good, okay? I do good so I have a reason to do so very bad. And oh Donna, there were children back there. I'm many things, but not a torturer of children.

But I suppose I can give one chance, for your sake.

*He glares at the Emperor in turn, the special sort of glare that only an angry Time Lord can manage. The look of an angry god.* Stupid little Emperor. You know that even I won't accept some things, and I know we've talked about your tendency to punish the innocent before.

Being hard on everyone is one thing. Torturing criminals is one thing. And I've done my share of random killing, Other knows. But taking people off the streets and holding them for years when they've committed no crime is downright stupid. Closure is important to people. They'd rather have a body to bury than no news at all. And parent to child is the closest connection.

So for the sake of those children and their connections, I order you to desolve the Empire. Any argument and your death will be the worst torture I can devise. And I'm far more imaginative than you are.

Master! That's not how it works! There is no being bad! You don't get a free pass to be bad because you've been good. That's not the way it works.

As for you! [ Donna huffs and turns her attention to the Emperor. ] You shut this place down or we will shut it down for you. Got it?

Maybe not, but I'm still learning goodness. So I need a reward now and then, to soothe the drums.

*The Emperor glares at them.* I will do no such thing. You didn't even win that bet, because I say you didn't and my word is law!

*The Master sighs.* But not truth. There is a difference, despite what you might think.

I always thought you were stupid, you know. I only ever came here because I needed a bit of mindless amusement, and I could kill things here without an excuse. And really, it's gone so downill now that even I think it's immoral. Do you have any idea how much that takes?

I sentence you to death, o Emperor. Long and slow, in the lowest pit. And it will happen, because my word truly is law--all I have to do is show the guards how, say, Donna here sees what you've been doing. And with telepathy that is so, so easy.

Bind him. I'm going to have my own little project--Other knows the Doctor has enough of them, I ought to be allowed one.

There will be no killing! Either of you! Don't make me go fetch the Doctor! [ Donna huffs, she'll soon be forced to start slapping people if they don't start listening to her. ]

Both of you! Sit down and shut up and settle this like gentlemen!!

You've seen what he does to people, is this not for the best? Perhaps I should simply free the prisoners and give him to them, would that be more just?

Most of those people in the pits are only guilty of jaywalking or being out three minutes after a curfew they only have so they can punish anyone outside after it. Does that make you more willing to let me hurt him?

Really, Donna, I want to know. I still don't really understand morals, I sometimes need you to explain.

Two wrongs don't make a right! If you torture him than you are no better than he is! Yes, the things he's done are terrible and he needs to be punished! But torture isn't the way to deal with it!

Date: 2012-11-13 12:48 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ofdrumsthesound.livejournal.com
But what punishment could be enough, without being too much? *He frowns, then takes a knife from his infinite pocket and starts poking the Emperor with it absently.* I'm always well-behaved when I'm with you. One chance to have a little fun is all I ask.

Can I at least eat him? He's so nice and plump, I could have a fine meal. Pop him in the oven or spit-roast him, mmm . . . what do you say, Emperor? Which would you prefer? Being spitted is more painful, but at least you're dying in the open air.

From: [personal profile] noblexcompanion
Nobody is eating anyone!! Stop it! I've had enough. You are both behaving like insolent children - albeit insolent children with psychotic tendencies...

We have him arrested and charged and locked in a jail for the rest of his life. Or hand him over to the Shadow Proclamation.

That's pretty much what I am these days, Donna. And I'm very hungry.

*He frowns.* But that doesn't make the drumming go away at all! And I need less drumming, Donna.

Plus, if we do that the end of the Empire won't be a mystery. And since it is a mystery, we don't do that. We need to make him simply disappear.

No! There will be no eating of anyone! Is that understood? [ Donna huffs. She's not prepared to let the situation drop, nor is she prepared to simply let the Master eat another living being. ]

Date: 2012-11-14 03:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ofdrumsthesound.livejournal.com
Not even if I kill him first?

I'm sorry, Donna, but I need to do something or I'll go mad. Well, more mad.

*He'll just be biting the Emperor now, okay?* Mmm . . .

Look, we can argue more later. Lets get him back to the TARDIS for now, at least. Alright?

*He laughs.* Oh Donna. Only you could treat evil emperors and dangerous lunatics like misbehaving five-year-olds.

But alright, I'll behave. Especially if we can go get lunch soon.

We cuff him and take him to the Shadow Proclamation. And then we go to get food.
