You’re taking a scenic hike through a forest you know and love. It’s beautiful and expansive - there are trees as far as the eye can see. Thankfully there are markers on the trail so you know exactly where you’re going.
But there’s something odd outside of the trail that catches your eye - it’s a huge tree that has some kind of purple glow to part of the trunk. Cautiously, you move away from the trail to check it out. It appears that this is no dye… some of the bark is glowing? You’ve never seen something like this in your life! As you touch it, a bright light blinds you.
Two beings approach… one is Mr Mxyzptlk and the other is Vandal Savage. They each offer you a special gift, but you can only accept one.
Mr Mxyzptlk offers you 10 different lives that will each span 100 years. You will be able to remember every life, however you cannot choose where you end up next. It could be 1,000 years in the past or 5,000 years in the future. You are immortal and can’t be injured through the 100 years and then pass promptly at the age of 100. If you choose this option, keep in mind you have to be a child/adolescent throughout the first portion of it and no one will take you seriously (AKA you age normally).
Vandal Savage offers you 1 life that spans 1,000 years. You are immortal throughout this life as well and can’t be injured. If you choose this option, your appearance in age will be around mid to late 20s to early 30s for the duration of the 1,000 years. If you accept this gift and are old in age, you will revert to a younger age and be granted 1,000 years - if you are young in age, you will age normally until late 20s to early 30s and also be granted 1,000 years from that moment.
You cannot refuse both of them… you must choose one of these options. Which do you choose, why, and what will you do with the gift you have been given?
