Struggling To Adjust (Book Three of The Bad...
Planet Earth. That's where she was born.
It's also where she died. The first time.
For the first fifteen years of Jessie Nightshade's life, nothing happened. Nothing at all. Not ever. She joined SHIELD her freshman year of high school, but still, it seemed like nothing happened.
And then she met a man called the Doctor, a man who could change his face. He took her away from her home in a machine and showed her the whole of time and space. She thought it would never end.
It did. For that version of her, anyway.
Then came Torchwood, and the War. And that was when it all ended. Jessie thought she knew who she was.
She was wrong.
After the Battle of Canary Wharf, three days after she died, she became a whole new person, with a whole new life to live. She had her forever. But she had it at a great cost.
Still, she and the Doctor keep moving on. But the Bad Wolf is still there, and she just can't ignore it. And when Martha Jones joins the TARDIS crew, she can't help but wonder how just one small thing can affect everything.
Because even though it's still her, she's not the only one struggling to adjust that this is what she's going to be now.
