So look!  I finally managed an actual drabble-length drabble!  And it's not the greatest, because Five and Ainley Master were all like... No!  We're not going to work with Memory!   Well, fine then.  See if I care.  I'll just stick with Three and Delgado Master since they like me more...  T_T  

Anyway, it's short.  Enjoy it for what it's worth.

EDIT: Now with a second drabble-length drabble!  I think I'm getting the hang of these...

America's Favorite Pastime and Practice Makes Perfect
By: Memory Dragon
Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who, nor do I make any claim to. 
Characters: Fifth Doctor/Ainley Master for the first one, Jo and the Third Doctor for the second.
Warnings: The first one's not that great?  I tried.  -_-;;;
Notes: America's Favorite Pastime was written for the best_enemies drabble prompt, "Russia and/or America" using the latter prompt.  Why?  Cause I like baseball.  <3  At least it wasn't American football, Doctor?  Practice Makes Perfect was written for the drabble prompt "Spain and/or China" for the same com.  Because I could.

America's Favorite Pastime

The Master was trying, really he was.  In a way, it was sweet of him to try taking the date seriously, looking so very out of place in velvet and just a little too hot for the warm weather.  The Master even looked rather proud of himself for thinking of the outing and the fact he wasn't complaining overly much about the situation, which only made the Doctor even more furious.  While he was aware the Master delighted in tormenting him, this had taken things too far.

"My dear Doctor," the Master started, looking at his fair companion in confusion as he realized that this was not going as planned.  "Is something the matter?  I thought you were always rather endeared to primitive sports events in this regeneration."

"Master, this is absolutely absurd and completely-"  The Doctor cut himself off, forcing his shoulders to relax as he took a deep breath and counted to ten.  Putting on a more pleasant smile on his face, he stuffed his hands in his pockets and tried not to take out his frustration on someone who simply hadn't known any better.  "Master," he tried again, not quite able to keep the steel out of his voice, "let me explain the difference between real cricket and this...  this American 'baseball' abomination you've brought me to."

Practice Makes Perfect

"Doctor, it's not that hard! Just repeat after me: The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain."

The Doctor glared at her, crossing his arms over his chest with a petulant expression. "Jo, this is absolutely absurd. That phrase doesn't even work in this case!"

"Now look, if you don't want the Master doing impressions of you to make fun of your lisp, you need to practice speaking without it!" Jo beamed up at him while placing her hands on her hips stubbornly. "Come on, Doctor! You can do it! Say it with me this time. The rain in Spain..."
