rec: on ill spaceships and chanukkah miracles, by pitry

It's the first night of Hanukkah here tonight, which means it might already be Hanukkah for you, dear Calufrax reader, or else it's going to be Hanukkah, or the first night is already over depending on where you are in the world and, um, when you read this. Anyway, if you celebrate it, Happy Hanukkah! (Or Chanukkah, Chanukah, etc. -- they're all correct, as they're just various ways of putting Hebrew into our alphabet.) Today I bring you the gift of an appropriately holiday-themed fic:

Story: On Ill Spaceships and Chanukkah Miracles
Author: pitry
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 808
Author's Summary: "And this, Donna, is why I never park the Tardis on Earth when it's in need of repairs, ever again."
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, the TARDIS
Warnings: If you're very religious, you might find this irreverent.

Recced because: There isn't much Hanukkah-themed Doctor Who fic out there, but fortunately we have this, which is absolutely wonderful; light and fun and perfect for getting into a holiday mood. But first, for those who don't know the story of Hanukkah, a little background: it's the commemoration of a time when, after a military victory and rededication of a temple, oil that should have lasted for only one day miraculously lasted for eight days instead. According to this fic, the Doctor just may have had a little something to do with that miracle, albeit unintentionally. Which would be just like him, too.

"Now we can't have that, can we?" He directed this question more to himself than to the sick Tardis — who coughed at him again — and grabbed a tin container to empty the fluids into.
