Author's Summary: It's a book. A stupid book. Cheap paper and blank pages. How's it supposed to fix anything?
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, The Doctor (10th), The Doctor (8th)
Warnings: None

Recced because: This story has two of my favourite things in it: an alien point of view, and the healing of things broken.

The form of the story is a first-person journal, yes, but written by an alien in a psych ward in the year 4992 who is afraid that everyone thinks she's crazy. Except that we know she isn't. In walks Martha Jones, and you realise that she and the Doctor are undercover... and the plot thickens.

The whole thing works magnificently.
