Characters: Tenth Doctor, Jack Harkness
A/N: Written for Wendymr who bid on me in the Help_Haiti auction. Her prompt was "Ten and Jack have a conversation about death." Thank you for the donation! Beta-readers: The helpful and patient Yamx and Canaana.
Jack hurls a book to the floor. "Bullshit!"
"Bit harsh, Captain." The Doctor stoops, retrieving the book. "Peter Pan?"
"'To die will be an awfully big adventure.'" Jack spits the words out.
The Doctor shrugs. "Perhaps it is. Not as if we've ever done it."
The immortal stares.
"It's like going to the cinema, walking into the lobby, then out again. Even after a hundred times, you can't claim you've seen the film."
"That is so incredibly stupid.”
"Not my best metaphor," The Doctor concedes.
Jack lets out a rueful laugh. "I bet it's a really boring film. With subtitles."
