A Place Called Home, by sheldrake

Story: A Place Called Home
Author: sheldrake
Rating: All Ages
Word count: 2,413
Author's summary: What's so bloody special about being human, anyway?
Characters/pairings: Martha, Jenny (from "Human Nature")
Warnings: none

Recced because: It makes Martha's experience in 1913 real. Though we only got brief glimpses in the episode itself, Martha's interactions with Jenny suggest that she entered into that world to a great extent, even though her time there was mostly bitter and she knew she wasn't staying. A Place Called Home explains why.

I'm at a loss to explain just what makes this story so effective; the best I can do is to say that it doesn't make the view through Martha's eyes pretty, but it does make it beautiful. It's just very alive. It's also one of my favorite looks inside Martha's head.
