Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, Tom Milligan, Clive Jones, Francine Jones, Tish Jones, Jack Harkness
Warnings: None

Recced because: This is one of the most beautiful Martha stories I've ever read. It's a look at who she became after The Year That Never Was, and the effect that year had on her family and their relationships with one another. The author also does a magnificent job of showing us how Martha ended up engaged to Tom and working for UNIT. This is the Martha Jones I know and love and this story is an absolutely gorgeous love-letter to the character. It's all the little details that make it so fantastic.
