Star Trek TOS: Fanfiction: Clipped

  • Mar. 19th, 2019 at 5:27 PM
Title: Clipped
Fandom: Star Trek TOS
Rating: G
Length: 100
Author notes: For challenge 257: wings
Summary: Kirk muses on promotion.

He does everything he can to keep his ship. He’s a Captain far longer than is typical, clinging not to the position so much as to the Enterprise herself. His home, his family, his life. But they urge him towards promotion, both subtly and not, and he can’t put it off forever. Eventually he must accept. He watches as they add insignia to his uniform, moving from captaincy to admiralty. Never once growing up did he think he would come this far. Never once at the academy did he think it would feel like this.

Like having his wings clipped.
