I have made some changes since the fic has been looked over for me, so any remaining mistakes are my own.
Disclaimer: This story is a work of fiction, it only ever happened in my head. I do not know or own anyone mentioned. The base idea belongs to those that created 'Life On Mars' (BBC) - no copyright infringement is intended.
Warnings: Sexual situations, implied non-con touching, and temporary character death.
Summary: After an accident in San Antonio during July, 2005, Jared Padalecki finds himself waking up as a new Army recruit in a desert coastal town called Pine Gap in August, 1973. At first he thinks it’s all in his head and that he’s going completely crazy. But he soon figures out that he’s in a coma back in 2005; and he is determined to get home to where he feels that he belongs. But 1973 leaves a strong impression on him, and when it comes down to it; mainly through the people he’s met, the betrayal and love he’s witnessed, he's not sure where he belongs after all.
Note: This is based on the BBC series 'Life On Mars' (imdb).
