Disclaimer: Life on Mars belongs to Kudos and the BBC. Title and epigraph come of course from John Donne's Holy Sonnets VII and X, respectively.
A/N: For the 07' Life on Mars ficathon, written for [ profile] m31andy who wanted the Test Card Girl, motivations and 'I never said it would be easy.' This is a sort of a splicing of two requests, sorry, I'm horrid at following instructions. God knows I’m usually nervous enough about the writing itself but then there was that whole added factor of writing for Andy… and, well, she and Fi renewed my interest in this fandom so... well, I hope you like it.

You know, I always forget how much I hate posting fic. I'm actually physically nauseous the entire day, develop a frighteningly dependent relationship with my inbox and proceed to kindle a deep burning hatred for almost every word posted.

Why do we put ourselves through this crap? And the thing is that I truly do enjoy the actual writing process – no matter how much it makes me want to jab something long and pointy into my brain and keeps me up at night and induces a legitimately worrisome caffeine problem. I mean, why else would anyone do this? But the posting… and I don't have psychosomatic reactions to bloody anything so why this? Bleh.

And yet, and yet - "Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else." – Gloria Steinem
