Day Twenty-Eight
twenty-eighth january

1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 . 7 . 8 . 9 . 10 . 11 . 12 . 13 . 14 . 15 . 16 . 17 . 18 . 19 . 20 . 21 . 22 . 23 . 24 . 25 . 26 . 27

I used to think I was scared of death. Or by facing death – by combat and action and the uncertainty of the battlefield. Not any more. No, now what scares me is the possibility that I live to grow old. I might wake up one day tired and wasted and unable to even open a beer. I might need crutches and a hearing aid and help getting dressed. When and if I get to that point, it'll be my memories that'll keep me going. The fact that I've lived through so much, survived so much, to get there. Do you want to get old? Do you want to end up with only your memories to make up for the loss of your faculties?

Title: Fears
Series: Thrice Blessed
Word Count: 864
Rating: G
Characters/Pairing: Jack, mentioned: Ianto, the Doctor, Rose, Captain John Hart, various OCs mentioned.
Spoilers: Up to TW02 and DW04 - mentions of several events from throughout both show.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Jack and Ianto (heavy sigh), I’m pretty sure they own each other. I do know the BBC and RTD owns all things Torchwood.
Warning: past MPREG, M/M
Summary: Jack reflects on his life and addresses his fears of his future.
Notes: Written for Day Twenty-Eight at redismycolour. This was almost impossible to do. The prompt itself was tough, and being I don't read the Doctor Who novels, I'm not familiar with "The Deviant Strain" other than what I heard from gracie_musica. I'm not happy with the results, because basically I just wrote anything just to get this day covered and over with. You have been warned.
