From Fanlore

Since the focus on Fanlore should be fandom and not canon facts, I'd say link to the b_e challenge guides rather than reproduce them here.--æthel 02:12, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Revision 235298

I noticed that the following sentences were deleted by User:Starchilde (revision 235298) and was a little suspicious because it was done without explanation and was his/her only contribution to the wiki. They were at the very end of the section "Six Era."

These two lend themselves more to bickering, domestic bliss and Actually Having Sex than the painfully USTy relationship between the Doctor’s emotionally repressed predecessor and the same Master. If Five and the Master work as very different but complimentary individuals, Six and the Master work more as mirrors, enjoying a more Three/Delgado!Master or Ten/Simm!Master-esque relationship of similarity and reflection. It’s interesting that Ainley!Master has, throughout his career, both of these marked types of Doctor/Master relationship.

I was hoping that someone more familiar with the topic could ensure that the deletion was appropriate for the scope/clarity of the article and wasn't a mistake or malicious edit. Thanks, --sparc 05:55, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

I am suspicious about that edit as well. However, the "era" subheadings under "Relationship in Canon" section are all problematic--there's a lot of canon plot synopsis and not too much emphasis on fanac. If the sections could be reframed as "4th Doctor/Master fans interpret their dynamic thusly, and here's some fic/discussion/hats they produced", it would be more in keeping with Fanlore's scope.--æþel 23:53, 1 June 2011 (UTC) (P.S. I am not familiar with the Doctor/Master pairing.)

New pages with pairing specific information

The information on this page is mostly canon, and the tropes and fanon section is mostly general tropes applied across most Doctor/Master pairings. Rather than deleting anything or reorganizing this page, I'm considering creating more specific pairing pages for the bigger Doctor/Master ships, that link from here. So a Doctor/Simm!Master page that mostly deals with the tropes and fanworks in the TenSimm pairing. Same for Twissy and 13/Dhawan!Master. I'm afraid I don't know enough about Classic Who to create stubs for the others.

I know it's not how we usually organise pairing pages so I wanted to post here before starting. Any suggestions or objections? --Auntags (talk) 11:28, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
