Rating: Teen

Author's Summary: Martha explains a few things to Maria, and learns the temptations of open doors.
Characters/Pairings: Martha Jones, Maria Jackson; hints of Martha/Maria, Sarah Jane/Maria (one-sided)
Warnings: Swearing

Recced because: I'm a sucker for any fic that crosses over the SJA crew with the Doctor's companions. This fic not only does that, but it presents a totally different take on the mentor/student relationship that is too easy to fall into when writing about the SJA gang. This particular story explores Maria's quasi-canon crush on Sarah Jane (no easy feat, even when Maria is older, as she is in this fic); Martha finds herself in a curious role somewhere between friend, big sister figure, and suddenly, possibly, something more. The two characters may not be on equal ground, but they're both in unexplored territory, and the tension is built deliciously and believably. I also love the way the author incorporates Torchwood and specifically Jack, who never appears but inevitably comes up in conversation.
