Author's Summary: Sometimes the hope we need in dark places comes from something as simple as simple as a hand to hold... and forty flavours of Christmas marmalade.

Recced because: This story’s told from the POV of Keegan, a woman trapped in a dilapidated building and saved by the Ninth Doctor. Nine promises Keegan she can travel with her, but Keegan’s not sure if she’s hallucinating or not. Also, as the summary promises, marmalade.
I really like thebunnyinthetardis’ Nine—he reminds me of how I personally saw Nine, not continuously angsting against the Time War, but as a charming and personable Doctor, even if he was hiding his angst from Rose at first. The way Nine’s able to give hope to Keegan is inspiring as well.
