Summary: It's not always easy being a hero.
The Doctor was no stranger to evil. He’d seen the worst the universe had to offer. Usually he turned away in disgust, fighting the danger with no regrets whatsoever.
This was different. Tegan’s voice, her face, her body. Why had he never noticed how well formed his companion was until she was possessed by a being of pure evil?
It wasn’t Tegan, he told himself. It was the Mara and he needed to destroy it.
Would the world end if he followed his baser instincts, even briefly, before doing the right thing?
With his luck it probably would.
