speedgeek: (Captain Jack)
I'm trying to get through my pile of unread Doctor Who novels on my lunch break (don't really have time to do much else). Still on S1 stories (I really miss Nine); started The Deviant Strain this week. I had to stop at this paragraph full of foreshadowing:

"I used to think I was scared by 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 I might live to grow old. I might wake one day tired and wasted and unable even to 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 my memories that'll keep me going. The fact I've lived through so much. survived so much, to get there."

Poor Jack, who'll end up a big head in a jar with nothing but his memories and a warning for the Doctor. :(

*snuggles young, innocent, naive, mortal Jack*
