Title: So Far Away
Fandom: Numb3rs
Pairing: Megan/Larry
Rating: PG13
Notes: Written for MMOM 2012, Day 9. Prompt from numb3rs100. May Monthly Theme: Forensics.
May Challenge Genre: Romance. Current Prompt: Trace. Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Separation is a challenge, but it's worse for Larry.



Larry had been uncharacteristically blunt in his assessment of the frustrations he’d be accepting as part of the price for his dream coming true. Masturbation on the space station was not an option.

“No spunk in Zero-G.”

Megan had nodded her head in slightly grossed-out sympathy.

“That’s not the kind of trace evidence you want floating around.”

At least she was experiencing her solitary nights on earth. She missed Larry, but she could relive their more intimate moments as freely as she wanted without fear of floating DNA or nosy crewmates.

In her apartment, no one could hear her scream.

Thank you! I was a bit iffy on the last line, and thought it could
go a few other ways, so I'm glad that one works for you.

It's a canon ship that feels more like a rare-pair. Because no one "in universe" seems to understand or support it.

Exactly.

I love anything with these two. Though you can't tell me that after months on the ISS no astronaut has even gone for a little personal relief. Especially once the private bunks went in.

They're the best. As I said in an above comment, it's a canon ship that actually feels like a rare-pair. I'm not actually that familiar with the ISS and I'd actually been thinking that Larry was going up on the Shuttle, until I saved myself that embarrassment with a bit of Googling. Thanks for reading and commenting.

All sorts of possibilities, and MAYBE Larry was stretching the truth just a bit for Megan's benefit? Glad you saw the humor in it.

ROFL love that tagline! "... no one could hear her scream."

All I could think of, as I read it, was a blip I saw with an older Sigorney Weaver and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Weaver: (something like) I think you had the scarier movie, guy running around with an ax.

Curtis: Oh please, in space, no one can hear you scream?!

I'm glad the tag-line worked because I was futzing around with it up until the last minute and still wasn't sure it was quite right.
Really appreciate the comment.
