Author's Summary: The Doctor isn't the only one in exile.
Characters/Pairings: the TARDIS
Recced because: If the Third Doctor's exile was hard on him, how hard must it have been for the TARDIS, literally born to travel in time and space? AstroGirl weaves elements of "The Doctor's Wife" into this poignant TARDIS character study, examining how the relationship between ship and thief is strained by their mutual grounding. The TARDIS' perspective feels believably alien, but her feelings of longing and loss are universal.
