The paper’s slightly psychic. It shows them whatever I want them to see. Saves a lot of time.
Decided to join in on this Valentines Day card thing.
BEST ONE. BEST.
So this was supposed to go up yesterday but we queued it to the wrong year.
We know it’s a day late but we have to reblog it anyway for our Doctor Who Valentines celebration.
Psychic paper was a blank, white card that had special properties. When shown to a person, it could usually induce them to see whatever the user wished them to see printed on it. However, it proved useless on geniuses such as William Shakespeare. It was most commonly seen being used by the Doctor in his later incarnations.
Psychic paper could receive messages from beings of sufficient psychic ability, but in the hands of untrained users, the paper was prone to displaying facts they subconsciously wanted the reader to be aware of. This could be embarrassing.
When the intended thought was too unbelievable, the psychic paper would only display squiggly lines.
