Drabble: Eternity

Title: Eternity
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Jack.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 469: Long / Longing at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Jack considers what his immortality means.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Jack has already been alive for such a long time, yet it’s nothing compared to what still lies ahead for him. Eternity is beyond the ability of a human brain to comprehend. The concept is simply too huge.

He tries his best not to think about it, because that way lays madness, but it’s impossible not to consider some of what it means. He’ll outlive every person he ever meets, even those who won’t be born for millennia. He’ll outlast civilisations, see planets form and new species evolve, watch suns born and eventually burn out.

And still he’ll go on.

The End
