star trek au: a time lord, who travels the universe with his vulcan companion, drops by the earth in the 23rd century. when he finds they’re being pursued by a terrible foe, he is forced to hide by using a chameleon arch to transform himself into a human. taking on the name jim kirk and a life in starfleet, he loses all knowledge of who he once was as they’re forced to live there until the danger passes. but every night he dreams of adventure, of aliens and all of space and time; it’s really no wonder that he makes the ascension to captain in no time at all. and his companion comes to realise that no matter what he goes through, you’ll never be able to take the stars from him, because the human jim kirk continues to do what he’s always done best - travelling the galaxies and saving the universe.
(when the watch finally opens, leaving is far more heartbreaking than he’d ever have thought. but from then on, earth becomes one of his favourite places, and the starship enterprise finds itself with a new pair of regular visitors.)
