Running Out Of Time - Lams Future AU
"How do you fight every second you're alive?"
"Because time is power and I don't got a lot of it left. I have to make every second and every moment count."
"And that's what I love about you."
It's the year 2169. Welcome to a world where time is the ultimate currency.
In a future where time is money and the wealthy can live forever, Alexander Hamilton is a poor man who rarely has more than a day's worth of life on his time clock. John Laurens, on the other hand, has centuries worth of life on his time clock.
In this world, everyone stops aging at 25, but there's a catch; you are genetically engineered to live only one more year, unless you can buy your way out of it. The wealthy "earns" decades at a time, becoming essentially immortal while the rest beg, barrow or steal enough hours to make it through the day.
When Alexander saves George Washington, a certain father figure, from time thieves, he receives the gift of a century. However, such a large transaction attracts the attention of the authorities, and when Alexander is falsely accused of murder, he must go on the run and take the son of the incredibly wealthy Henry Laurens with him.
Will they run out of time?
AN AU BASED ON THE MOVIE, "IN TIME"
