Ba-bum-ba-bum. Ba-bum-ba-bum. Ba-bum-ba-bum. Ba-bum-ba-bum.

This was the cadence of his life—moments lived in fast staccato, building a crescendo right behind his temples. If he concentrated very hard, he could ignore it, push away the throbbing noise for a few precious minutes and see everything the way it was meant to be. The universe—suddenly new and clean and beautiful, a thing outside his own twisted mind. But then the beating would start again, softly, softly, and it would grow louder and faster (andlouderandfaster) until it was all he knew, all he understood. First, it matched the beating of his hearts, and then it quickened them, and then there was nothing apart from the drum-drum-drumming in his head.

There was no relief. All the running and screaming and kissing and killing in creation couldn't rid him of this sickening pulse. It turned his stomach, sucked his mouth dry. He would do anything, anything at all, to escape it, but there was nothing that could be done. If anything, struggling only made it worse.

Ba-bum-ba-bum. Ba-bum-ba-bum.

It was buried in his head, a thing so tangled inside nerves and bone that it could never get out.

Ba-bum-ba-bum. Ba-bum-ba-bum.

He couldn't run from it.

Ba-bum-ba-bum. Ba-bum-ba-bum.

So the only thing left.

Ba-bum-ba-bum.

Was. To. Fol. Low.
*Gonewiththevampire challenged me to write a fic for this villain contest. I picked the Master from Doctor Who. I must say he's fascinating. And so frightening I tense up whenever people start drumming on tables. Just... no. XD

Aaaaand... I was really only able to finish this because I have to wait on MegaVideo to load. NNNNRRRGGGG. But I finally finished all of David's episodes. :(

This is wicked awesome! The Master is one of my favorite villains. He's just so much like the Doctor, only twisted...

I'm literally on the verge of watching David Tennant's finale, but I have to wait til after finals are over. God knows I don't need something ELSE to stress out about, haha! But the Master is SO awesome and so psychotic and so deliciously villain-y... one of the real true villains of DW and not just a monster. Is it wrong that I think he's kind of sexy? I mean, I know I'm just one of many he's manipulated into thinking so but... seriously. ;)

Great piece by the way. You can really get a grasp on his insanity. :D

dadadada. Dadadada. Love the Master! God he's scarrrryy!! Did you notice that the drumming in the Master's head is actually from the theme music? So very very clever. :D

It's sooo good! But yeah, if you listen to the drumbeat in the beginning of the theme song, it's the same beat. Clever clever writers!
