ofdrumsthesound: (Homeless Hungry And Mentally Ill)

Based on what little we know of the Time War, and various interesting fanfics, I have made a few decisions:

  • The Neverweres and Meanwhiles were all the people who the Time War erased from history. The Could-HaveBeen King was the first one--the son that Koschei might've had if not for the drumming.
  • The Nightmare Child was the Master himself. To the Daleks he probably was a nightmare, and he was driven mad as a child. When he returned on the Last Day the energies forming around him were vast enough that they made him look like a giant eating spaceships.
  • The Horde of Travesties were people whose very biology had been twisted by the changes in time, devolved and re-evolved in strange ways. They were, however, time-aware enough to know what had been done to them, that they were in the wrong bodies, and they couldn't cope.
  • The Skaro Degradations were obsolete--and often alternate--Daleks used as cannon fodder.
  • Temporal weapons tend to be based on the problems involved in having half your body moving at a different rate than the other half. The results are . . . unpleasant.
  • The Master died four times, was the last survivor of three different squads, and was feared by both sides by the time he ran away.
  • There was a woman that the Master remembers getting her arm caught in a time loop, one that he was desperate to rescue. But other than that one memory of rescuing her, he has no clue who she was--she was grazed by timefire, apparently. Sometimes he has nightmares about her, the friend that he's forgotten. Sometimes he thinks she's right next to him, trying to get his attention. Maybe she is.
  • When the War got bad enough, the Master was one of the first people to think of hiding out in the Death Zone. He spent about a subjective year there, mostly killing anyone else who entered so the War wouldn't reach his safe haven. (Eventually the war came anyway; a Dalek time bomb landed right in the middle of the Zone and failed to detonate, leading to squads from both sides trying to retrieve and study it. The Master was so angry about this that he spontaneously invented a remote detonator for the damned bomb and set it off just as the squads arrived. Don't make geniuses angry, kids!)

His true name is Mosdrakoscheitoritamorenoldacheen
He did not create the Toclafane, they did it to themselves. And the Utopia signal was there already, perhaps a distress signal from long ago.

He's a ghost. He absorbed the energy of Gallifrey dying and became a sort of mark on the fabric of the universe.

He ate Rassilon, and what was left of Lucy.

He has in his pockets at any time an apple, some slices of ham, three fingers, a few cookies, a slice of cake, a dead rat and some tea bags.
Oh, and a laser screwdriver!

He and his Doctor will live long, die in each others' arms, and go to a Heaven with red grass together. In place of drums there will be the sound of wings, and every days will feel like an adventure.

  • I like the Queen of Hearts; she's found her method of coping with life -- beheadings -- and she's okay with that. It's kind of like creative visualization, really; if there's something happening that she doesn't dig on, she creates a world where the person responsible has died horribly. And if nobody ever actually ends up headless, well, you create your own reality. I really think there's some room here for a new and potent form of therapy-- Lore Sjöberg,. The Book of Ratings
  • Madness is rare in individuals, but in groups, parties, nations and ages is it the rule--Nietzsche
  • The best plan is, as the common proverb has it, to profit by the folly of others--Anon
  • A child born today in the United Kingdom stands a ten times greater chance of being admitted to a mental hospital than to a university ... This can be taken as an indication that we are driving our children mad more effectively than we are genuinely educating them. Perhaps it is our way of educating them that is driving them mad--R. D. Laing
  • Success is counted sweetest- /By those who ne'er succeed--Emily Dickenson
  • To Whom the Mornings stand for Nights/What must the Midnights — be!--Emily Dickenson
  • Much Madness is divinest Sense - To a discerning Eye/Much Sense - the starkest Madness--Emily Dickenson
