10 Ways To Become Immortal

Allow Us To Explain
What’s to explain? Immortality. You want it.
No, don’t give me any of that crap about living longer than your loved ones or statistically if you can’t die than eventually you’re certain to get trapped in a situation where you wish you could. The human race wants to live forever. Some how. This is why we have anti aging cream, children, art, and religion.
So far as we know, there’s no way to attain immortality of ones consciousness in reality. But in fiction? Why, fiction is full of characters who thumb their noses at gods, laugh in the face of eternity, and play Snakes and Ladders with the Grim Reaper himself.
And there are almost as many ways to gain immortality as there are characters who get it, whether it comes after a lifetime of hard study, simply making a wish, gaining a terrible curse, a bloody sacrifice, or sheer bloody luck.
There are no runners up for this grid, as we’re talking about broad themes rather than individual characters or things, so if you don’t see your favorite former-mortal anywhere, just consider them to be lumped in wherever appropriate. If you do have an original method that we haven’t covered, please let us know in the comments, for the good of posterity.
What you do with eternity is, naturally, up to you.
