Last month, we - and our boys - have learned a lot of new things. But now it's time to abandon theory and deal with the realities: Welcome to the Life and Death Challenge!

And who's more fitting for that theme than Jack and the Doctor? They're making life or death decisions every day. They live and die, and then they come back: they regenerate, or just revive. (And oh, look, Easter's this month, too - how fitting! Almost as if we planned it. :D)

What's life to an immortal? What's death, when you can die but will always come back? What choices do you make when your own view of life and death is completely skewed due to what you are? How does Jack deal with living forever? What about the Doctor's final death? So many places you can go. Surprise us!

As a gentle reminder, please don't crosspost stories for this challenge elsewhere until the challenge closes about one month from now. And don't forget - leave a comment in THIS post and tell us what you think the next challenge should be!
