"Release The Stars", Star Trek XI, McCoy/Uhura

Title: Release The Stars
Fandom: Star Trek (2009 reboot)
Pairing: McCoy/Uhura (and McCoy-Kirk friendship)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 17,000 (yesyes I know I need to be institutionalised)
Genre: Het
Copyright: Title is a Rufus Wainwright song. And album too, actually.
Summary: “Don’t worry,” he tells her. “Jim sometimes makes me want to go out and attack innocent bystanders too.”
Author’s Notes: I must’ve been the one person alive who left the movie and felt the need to write het! Ah well. Begun on the train from Amsterdam to Brussels, and then written in various places in Belgium and Luxembourg, and finished when I got home. I do love Star Trek but there will probably be canonical mistakes anyway, please feel free to point them out so I can fix them. And how half of this ended being about McCoy’s perceptions of Jim, I’ll never know. Also, I was slightly drunk while writing the last 5000 words; please feel free to point out typos/grammatical errors/nonsensical bits. So possibly if it’s terrible there may need to be a sober!rewrite.

I’m still fucking around with character voices, so please be gentle and patient with me!
