What
*The Master is hanging around the Nexis looking rather bored. He's never been here before but he can't say he's incredibly impressed. After the sign at the entrance though he *really* shouldn't have been expecting anything worth grabbing his attention. He does, however, have a question*

'So, why don't you all tell me about this Easter thing. A holiday for celebrating some dead guys resurrection? I've done that more than once. Do I get a holiday to?'

Okay, so technically it's more than one question.

"You'll get the best, clearest, most intelligent answer from a dictionary." In other words, google is your friend and this sort of question isn't incredibly impressing.
12th-Apr-2009 08:23 pm (UTC)
*The Master shrugs and gives her an easy smile that's got slightly too many teeth to be considered entirely sane.*

"I wasn't trying to be impressive. If I wanted to be impressive you'd know. It's kinda my thing." With that he gives her another smile "I was just curious what the denizens of this place thought."

OOC: I was just being a little silly, and it's actually the kind of question he'd ask. I really didn't mean to offended you if I did. You think I should delete?

"Fair enough. What would be impressive then?" Njoki grins and offers her own rather impressive set of dentition.

((Oh gosh, no! I'm terribly sorry. Please, stay. Njoki's just a very scowly sort of hyena.))

"How about the fact I ruled the entire Earth for a year? I'd say that was fairly impressive. Of course no one remembers it, but hey, that's not my problem."

This is all said in a very light tone, but being entirely honest it's a rather bitter subject for him. Lord and Master of the entire Earth only to be defeated by the Doctor. The Master does. however, still consider his entire year a rather substantial victory.
12th-Apr-2009 08:40 pm (UTC)
That stops Njoki. She's met a few Masters and a few more Doctors during her time in the Nexus and, to date, not one of them has ever mentioned the Year that Wasn't.

"How'd you pull that one off?"
12th-Apr-2009 08:46 pm (UTC)
*He raises an eyebrow at that*

"Well, it was rather simple really. After all, I am incredibly charming."

In other words? He's not telling.

"The resurrection thing's all well and good, but you need to be an influential cult leader before you get your own holiday for it." Gauron doesn't really have a lot of respect for Christianity.
12th-Apr-2009 09:05 pm (UTC)
*The Master's latched onto a particular train of thought. This translates into a rather wide grin.*

"Cult leader? Now there's a good time." He pauses for a second and tilts his head slightly to the side. "Not something I'd considered, but I think I'd be rather good at it."
12th-Apr-2009 09:18 pm (UTC)
"Not like it's a really difficult job. People are idiots who love to believe even ridiculous shit as long as it makes them feel all special and righteous." As a career, though, it's not for Gauron; political - or religious - ambition isn't really his thing. It'd get in the way of a lot of life's fun, for him.
12th-Apr-2009 09:32 pm (UTC)
"Ah! Now that I know all about. Reminds me of a particular acquaintance of mine. He's rather fond of the self-righteous routine."
12th-Apr-2009 10:21 pm (UTC)
"He sounds obnoxious as hell." People who genuinely buy into morals always rub him the wrong way.
12th-Apr-2009 09:22 pm (UTC)
"Christians are pretty into celebrating stuff about Jesus." Metody shrugs cheerfully. In honor of the holiday, his shirt is of the pastel variety of Hawaiian horrible. He's surrounded by a dozen toy frogs, each one made of bright Hawaiian print, each one about three feet tall and cheerfully smiling in that way stuffed animals have. They have ribbons around their necks with glittery easter eggs wired onto them.

"For the rest of us, it's a nice springtime holiday on which to dye eggs and give each other flowers and candy. Speaking of which, chocolate egg?" He holds out a whole bag of little foil-wrapped eggs towards the Master.
12th-Apr-2009 09:30 pm (UTC)
*The Master eyes the toy frogs with a slight amount of distaste, but brightens up at the mention of chocolate.*

"Now that's more like it"

* The Master takes one of the chocolate eggs from the bag and delicately extracts the silver foil from the outside leaving it completely intact. He smiles for a second, this particular gesture has reminded him of someone. After eating the Chocolate Egg the Master tilts his head to the side.*

"So this is all just about chocolate? Huh. Cults and chocolate. Perhaps you humans are fun after all."
12th-Apr-2009 09:33 pm (UTC)
"Not quite a cult - at least, not in my world. There's enough of them and they've had enough influence on culture that Christianity is considered a major world religion."

He happily unwraps an egg for himself and pops it into his mouth. The wrapper, he smooths down into a perfect square of pale blue foil, then folds and tucks into his pocket.

"But if you're not Christian and you're still going to celebrate the holiday, yeah, it's all about eggs and bunnies and baby chicks. And candy."
12th-Apr-2009 10:34 pm (UTC)
What possible use could a holiday like that be to you?
12th-Apr-2009 10:39 pm (UTC)

"My dear Rani, what a pleasant surprise. It doesn't have to be useful you know, because it's fun . Don't you think it'd be fun?"
12th-Apr-2009 10:41 pm (UTC)
Why would it be fun? It's a holiday. A human holiday, at that.

Human holidays are incredibly dull.
12th-Apr-2009 10:46 pm (UTC)
"Well, naturally I'd have to teach them how to celebrate in style. Easy done though. Lots of blood. And chocolate. I don't think even humans could mess that up."
12th-Apr-2009 10:48 pm (UTC)
I think you're overestimating them. The Doctor must be rubbing off on you.

[Have a sneer.]
12th-Apr-2009 10:58 pm (UTC)
"Oh trust me my dear Rani, no overestimation. It is in their very nature after all, despite what the Doctor tells me. I know, I've seen it."

*Have a smirk back*
12th-Apr-2009 11:04 pm (UTC)
They're animals. They eat, they sleep, and sometimes they kill each other over imaginary lines they drew on a map. They call it evolution. I call it pathetic.

If you want to watch a good fight to the death, Tellurian mountain geese perform much more elegantly than humans.

Cue slightly impatient sigh from the individual of a very Rassilon-like nature over there.

"Because you don't resurrect, you regenerate, there's a difference. A rather large one, at that. Second, the resurrection in question took place among a species just out of its infancy at a period in which it was steeped in religion to the point where an event such as that would shock everyone to the very core of his or her being. Third, as stated before, it happened to a religious leader, who were terribly influential people at the time. Fourth, there's nothing like coincidential repetition to really drive a point home. Fifth, religion and government were so intertwined for centuries that one literally could not tell one from the other at times, such that the observances of one became the royal or state holidays of the other. Sixth, among humans, religion, government, and economics form a trifecta of social influence of such magnitude that a two-thousand year old supernatural phenomenon has now so permeated their consciousnesses that if you ask anyone what it means, you will get a different answer every single time, yet you'll notice that they are eerily united in their opinion that it is terribly important. I've made six points so far and that's really rather a lot for one answer, so really, have some chocolate and a Happy Zombie Jesus-Osiris-some Hindu figure who I can't remember Day."

*The Master waves a dismissive hand at Rassilon*

"No wonder the Time Lord's got bogged down in details when they had you as an example, *Lord* Rassilon"

Rassilons title is said with a certain amount of amusement. The Master had been told that anyone could come through the Nexus but he hadn't been expecting this.

"..though I must say I do approve of your final comment. For once you talk a certain amount of sense. I would be surprised if this wasn't a rare occurrence."

Susan just nods and smiles a bit.

"For once, we see eye to eye. I don't understand of lot of their religious beliefs, either. David tried to explain it to me back when I was younger, and I think the Terrans are mainly celebrating the idea of rebirth and new beginnings. The resurrection of Jesus is just how one particular sect symbolizes it."

Susan's smile then changes to a bit of a smug smirk.

"Sometimes I make a holiday of the time I stole your TARDIS...." ;)
13th-Apr-2009 09:12 am (UTC)
*The Multiverse really does keep chucking surprise after surprise at the Master. He responds with a smirk.*

"New Beginnings huh? Well, we Time Lords know all about that." He smiles slightly, but it's certainly not friendly. "I don't remember anyone having stole my TARDIS. It's not the sort of thing I'd forget."
13th-Apr-2009 11:42 pm (UTC)
Susan half-expected that answer. Multiverse and all that.

"Well, not specifically *your* TARDIS, per se, but the one belonging to your counterpart in my universe. And you're correct. He didn't forget. After the High Council resurrected him, he tracked me down to get revenge, but by then we had to put our differences aside to fight Daleks."
13th-Apr-2009 04:34 am (UTC)
For some it's about celebrating a cult leader's resurrection. For me it's an opportunity to get hopped up on candy and a bit of violence.

You'd need some preachers and some kind of scripture to spread word of your greatness.
13th-Apr-2009 09:14 am (UTC)
*He nods, Wise words indeed.*

"That could be easily arranged I'm sure. People tend to find me a little...hypnotic."

*The last word is spoken with a soft smile.*

::You're not the first Harold Saxon edition of the Master Schuldig has run into, so....::

That certainly helps. You'd also have to decide how much of the work you want to do yourself. Personally, I'd far rather do a few "miracles" and let my followers handle most of the writing and rabble rousing.

"Sam?" Usagi says, walking over. You must forgive her, dear Master, for she has difficulty telling people apart on occasion. "I guess you could get a holiday. Do I get to have one too then?" She's smiling, because getting a holiday seems so very much fun. There might be parties involved!
13th-Apr-2009 09:19 am (UTC)
*He is most definitely not Sam Tyler but the name makes him smile anyway. He's been confused for Sam more than once and being honest he always finds it a little funny.*

"Of course! I don't see why not. Holidays are fun after all."
13th-Apr-2009 01:58 pm (UTC)
"Uh huh!" she says with a nod. "Ooh ooh, do we get to pick what our holidays are like? I want mine to be like Valentine's day. Lots of pink and chocolate everywhere! Ne, what about you, Sam?"

Usagi pauses, then asks, "But, when did you die and come back? I've never heard that story before."
13th-Apr-2009 01:25 pm (UTC)
"It was special back then. So was walking on water. Now, it's just all over the joint."
