A/N: Thanks to thisisgallifrey and 45eugenia for betaing and feedback, and for putting up with my dithering and endless Baroque nerdery and the insertion of tragic bromance into the Putney Debates of all places. May contain traces of the historical Sexby and Rainsborough.

"For I am every dead thing,
In whom love wrought new alchemy.
For his art did express
A quintessence even from nothingness,
From dull privations, and lean emptiness
He ruined me, and I am re-begot
Of absence, darkness, death; things which are not."

--John Donne

"Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
--Proverbs 27:17
