Notes Written for consci_fan_mo from the lyric prompt: I don't want to start any blasphemous rumours, but I think that God's got a sick sense of humour, and when I die I expect to find him laughing.
Of all the cosmic jokes...
Death was the lover he’d cheated over and over, but once he’d fallen in love, she couldn’t stay faithful for more than five minutes.
It took decades for Jack to appreciate the humour, and even now the laughter caught in his throat like the ragged breaths that kept dragging him back to life.
He hadn’t been on speaking terms with God since before he signed up with the Agency, but if he ever ran into him, her or it, they were definitely going to have a very long talk.
“You really think this is funny?”
