Numb3rs Fic: Catalina Flyer (The Titanic Remix)  
Written for numb3rs100 2011 Drabble Remixathon - Remix of Catalina Flyer by jelsemium/Challenge #243 - Boat


Title: Catalina Flyer (The Titanic Remix)
Pairing/Characters: Amita
Rating: PG
Word Count: 200
Spoilers: None
Summary: Amita reveled in the feel of the sea spray on her face
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


The Catalina Flyer wasn't a pleasure cruise. It was the brisk boat route to Catalina Island so most stayed indoors, watching the waves through the windows.

Not Amita.

Few things made her feel alive like being on the ocean. Since she was a little girl she'd never been seasick, always enjoying the rolling of the ocean waves.

She reveled in the feel of the sea spray on her face, the wind whipping her hair in to a halo around her head, the heart-stopping motion of the ship dropping out from beneath her feet after a big wave... It was almost as if it gave her the gift of the physics of flight without leaving the ground, or in this case the water's surface.

Each swell left her exhilarated, the rays of the sun setting the sea to sparkle like jewels. She didn't get to make the trip that often, but each was a gift that took her out of her stressed number-filled head and let her simply be in her body and feel.

Not caring if anyone saw, she made her way to the bow's railing and did her best Titanic impression, spreading her arms and flying into the wind.

Confession
This fic was written for the 2011 Drabble Remixathon at numb3rs100. The original author was jelsemium whose fic I remixed was Catalina Flyer.

Like Amita (and Jels) I really enjoy the trip on the Catalina Flyer out to the island. It's kind of a Southern California institution. ;-) I've always been the type who revels in the swells rather than avoiding them. I too, haven't seen the movie Titanic - one of what seventeen people worldwide? /snickers/ Just goes to show what's-his-name really isn't the King of the World he thought he was. LOL

Hope you like the remix Jels and thanks for all your lovely fic at N100 over the years!

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

HEEE! I had to see Titanic with my grandmother. She cried. Amita at the front of a boat like that is much better. And I'm not exactly Amita's biggest fan but it's a great description of being out on the waves.

Such a perfect moment for Amita in this fic. I love this. Thanks for steering me back to fic I missed during the year by remixing these.
