Summary: Jack's going to live forever. He's going to meet a lot of hurdles in that time.
Beta: Unbeta'd
Author’s Note: [livejournal.com profile] taffimai prompted me with this: Jack/Ten. Eternity is a long time. Long enough to discover that the limits you thought you had are just hurdles to be overcome. I don't think this is quite what she had in mind, but it's what came out of mine. :-)



Jack's going to live forever. And he's come to terms with that, really he has.

It's just… every time he thinks he knows what 'forever' means, every time he thinks he has it figured out, something new comes along to challenge that perception.

He thought the 140 year wait for the Doctor was an eternity, but it ended.

He thought the year of torture and death was unendurable, but he endured.

He thought 1,874 years buried beneath Cardiff was hell itself, but he survived.

He can't help wondering what the next hurdle will be. And if this time he'll fall.
