It's not my fault. It's not. It's not their fault either. They thought I was dead. I'm a Time Lady, though. Of course, me being a Time Lady gives me lots of responsibility. I'm the president of the new colonization. Once I came into power, I put that man on prison for attempting to murder me. Ever since we've lived in peace, the humans and the Hath. My dad is gone,so is Donna. Donna reminds me of an aunt. I wish we could have travelled together. Even Martha, who I don't particularly like. The way she begs for my father's attention id annoying. I've been researching my dad. The last of the Time Lords. He's had many faces. Ten up to when he had me. The Doctor is what eveyone else calls him. He's had other kids. I was the only one born from a machine like this. As far as I know, he still has the scar from the tissue sample that made me. 53 times. That's how many times I failed to contact him. I did manage to contact an old companion. The one I was to look like. Rose Tyler, the Doctor's true love. Time Lord tissue holds memory and the machine found characteristics of Rose in the sample. I guess that make her my mum, sort of. Rose and I have talked three times in the past two months. We get along well and seem to be interested in the same things. The next time we talk she will be the one to contact me. I told her about Donna and Martha. I told her about being the Doctor's daughter and her, somewhat, being my mother. She is always curious about Dad. I never have any new information. I saw him two years ago for the first and last time. I should expect nothing less. They were very close. Inseperable by anything in the universe. Exept universes themselves. I've only been able to contact Rose because of a 'Bad Wolf' signal she gives off. The signal is stronger than the Void but it only bends it, flexes it, instead of breaking it. Oh, my Lord! I hear her. The TARDIS noise is filling my bedroom. I turn over to see, not a police box, but a grand piano. He must have fixed his chameleon circut. A man steps out of the top. He's a handsome man. Talli-ish with dirty blonde hair. Well dressed. "Uh, sorry for inturupting. I found a trace of someone like me here. It's probably not you. I'll go." "Wait," I say quickly,"You're Time Lord,too? Is it you, Doctor? Did you come back, Dad?" ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please tell me how it is so far. Sorry for spelling errors. Im an American so Im sorry if I made the characters sound unauthentic. I have a lot more written. Warning it gets romantic fast. No explicit romance though.

I really enjoyed the detail of this book. It gave another dimention to the doctor and rose's relationship and showed how people cope with bad things happening.
