Author's Notes: Many huge thanks to the mods for their infinite, infinite patience with me, and great love to my betas J, W, N and C for their gracious help and brilliant suggestions. Also, I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to N, in particular, without whom this story could neither have been dragged across the finish line nor written at all, and to W who gave me the title. (And a tip of the hat to John Donne, from whence said title comes.) Happy holidays, musamihi!
