Equality is hard!

In one of the personal stories I wrote, I gave the Doctor a Time Lord companion for a little while. The thing I noticed when I did this was that it was really hard to write! I'm so used to the dynamic of the Doctor as the leader with the companions as the follower that it was difficult to write a companion that is his equal, at least in force of personality if not in experience. Even River is always secondary to the Doctor, since she's basically a slave to her obsession with him. It was difficult to mesh two characters of equal importance and strength with different outlooks and goals, without it devolving into a battle for dominance.
