    David is in high school as a Sophmore. Sadly, even though he thought high school would be an absolute dream, it felt slow to him, and he hated it. He had a few bullies on his tale throughout his career in school and was constantly seen as a coward by them. That was until he ended up becoming friends with the leader of a pack of newsboys.

    Now stuff is changing for him, becoming a little better but the bullies became more persistent. He refuses to tell anyone.

    Now, lets "Watch what happens".

    Summary

    This turned into a very bad day for Race, David and Crutchie. First, that simulation went sideways thanks to Race's piloting. Then after trying to sneak out for 'team bonding', a ship crash landed. With one of their friends who had been missing for a year. Then they all got dragged across the desert and found a huge blue lion. Now, they are in space fighting a giant purple alien.

    Add in romance, and things get real.

    Note: With me, always assume Musical Jack, David and Crutchie, with everyone else being Movie-verse.

    Also, look out for one-shots based on songs for this AU. I have a arsenal and I'm not afraid to use it to make you guys cry (Maybe, this is me we are talking about here guys).

Someplace where he can be more than just another nameless orphan lost in the chaos of New York City. So when someone offers to pay his way to Santa Fe in exchange for crossing the Wall and retrieving a fallen star, he jumps at the chance.

    He just wasn't expecting the star to be so, well, human.
