I've just been reading Elisi's novel 'Dating the Cleverest Boy in the World'
An excellent read, a Dr Who novel, but relying almost entirely on well written original characters, who interact occasionally with the Master, Lucy Saxon, tenth Doctor and Jack Harkness.
It's a novel that looks at relationships between mortals and immortals, between human and non-human and asks what it's ethical to reveal/conceal.
The basic premise is an AU where the Master and Lucy Saxon had a son. The boy grows up with both the Doctor and the Master as major influences in his life, trying to balance their conflicting ethics and their expectations of him.
When he finally enters a romantic relationship with a human woman, he gets caught in the trap of how much to tell her about himself.
It's a novel that avoids quick, easy answers, and one that allows the characters to grow and develop in a believable manner.
This is a gen novel. Characters have sex (both gay and straight), but there are no explicit scenes.
When it comes to sex, this is the way I prefer it.
(In days gone by, I sometimes skipped plot to get to the sex. Now, I skip sex to get to the plot. There are more original plots than there are original sex scenes. )
The breakdown between chapters is well-balanced. Each is a distinct scene, but contributes to the overall storyline. Made it very easy to read one or two chapters a day.
