The Sandman: Brief Lives by Neil Gaiman
my brain is cross-referencing this with quote from today’s Mark Watches: Angel 2.07 “Darla”
Life’s too short. Four hundred years, and still too short.
What I like about the long-lived beings in Sandman is that they aren’t pigeonholed into the “cursed with immortality” story (or at least the ones whose stories we are told).
