Hi! Dave-El here and welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses, the blog that reverses the polarity of your neutron flow.
Not a lot of pre-story rambling today but I do want to take a quick moment regarding the pictures used in these stories. They're mainly there to break up the text, to add a visual element to what would otherwise be just lines and lines of words. As such, there are no clues to be found in the pictures. For example, if the 7th Doctor is wearing his tan coat in one picture but his dark brown one in another, that's not a clue to anything. That just me being lazy. :-)
Now on to the recap.....
The 11th Doctor and Clara are on a mission to stop an unstoppable force of ultimate destruction, the Great Negation. With the help of the White Guardian, a plan is in place to gather the myriad pieces of the destroyed Key to Time which, at best, represents a slim chance to stop the destruction of all things.
The Master: I am here for two things. One is to ask you a question.
Cyber Leader: A question?
The Master: Yes. That dark force that's eating away at your dominion. I'm sure you've noticed it by now. Do you know who it belongs to?
The Cyber Leader stares at the Master but does not reply.
The Master grins and points his thumb at himself.
The Master: Me!
Cyber Leader: You are the one responsible for the destruction of worlds belonging to the Cyber race.
The Master: Me? Destroy you? Perish the thought! It's more like I am here to offer salvation for the Cyber race if...well, that brings me to my second reason for coming here.
Cyber Leader: You are becoming most tiresome.
The Master: Then I best get to the point then.
The Master raises his arms.
The Master (shouting): Cybermen! Acknowledge me as your Master!
You are the Master!
You are the Master!
Clara: A what?
Jack: The result is a near 100% probability that where the TARDIS wants to go....
Clara: ...is exactly where it needs to go.
Martha: Like a coincidence but planned. Sort of.
7th Doctor: So you understand?
Clara and Martha both shake their heads "no"
Clara: No, not really.
Martha: Clear as anything ever is around here.
Clara: I've learned it's best just to roll with it.
Martha: Too true, Clara. Too true.
Clara (to the Doctor): But exactly how is that dangerous?
7th Doctor: In order to establish a high rate of probability of the TARDIS being in the right place at the right time, events have to be...manipulated.
River: The peril of a Coincidence Engine is that it's not just moving itself through time and space but a wide variety of factors across all of the space-time continuum.
Clara: Which is bad?
The Doctor pulls a console lever and doors open.
River (muttering): Oh, this is so not good.
Clara (in shock): This is the absolute opposite of good.
Behind the Doctor, Martha and Jack whisper to each other.
Martha: The Master? He's changed his face again.
Jack: No doubt still the same evil bastard on the inside.
The Master (laughing): Oh my dear Doctor! How you wound me! I am here to SAVE the universe!
7th Doctor: For your own evil purposes!
The Master: Well, if I see fit to allow the Great Negation to NOT destroy a world, it seems only fair that I should rule it as a...gift...in exchange for my benevolence. But as much as I enjoy our delightful banter, Doctor, I have other things to do. So it is time...for goodbye! My army...ATTEND!!
As the Master's assembled army (except for the Angels) raise their various weapons, Jack pushes past the Doctor and shoves him along with the others into the TARDIS.
Jack (yelling): Doctor, everybody! Go! NOW!
The Master and his appointed Cyber Leader approach the still form of Jack Harkness lying on the ground.
Cyber Leader: Scan completed. Termination of life confirmed.
The Master: Dead, yes. (Sighs.) He tends to do that. Jundoon?
Two Jundoon step forward.
The Master: Take this one to containment.
Jundoon: Action unnecessary. Life form is deceased.
The Master (angry): ANY action I tell you to take is never to be deemed "unnecessary".
Jundoon: Yes, Master.
Suddenly, a flare of golden light can be seen through the door windows of the TARDIS.
The Master (smiling): Ah, Doctor! You continue to dance to my tune! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
Scene shift: somewhere very foggy.
We hear the familiar trilling of a sonic screwdriver.
The TARDIS becomes a trap!
The Master's shocking discovery!
FIVE Doctors united to save the universe....but will it be enough?
