This pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

"The world doesnt revolve around you, Reid Akins."

"My world revolves around you," he said simply.

It was a brilliant flourish to interweve Professor Ampara's death into Cecilia's thought process about regret. Better still that she couldn't yet decide which course of action she'd regret more.

"Cecilia" by Simon and Garfunkel: I'm curious how a few lines from that tune haven't made it into the story yet. Of course, that would be from Reid's perspective...Just checked Wikipedia; unfortunately, it wasn't written till 1970. How unfortunate!

Author's Response: I did try to incorporate era-appropriate music to Unsinkable, and it actually bothered me less to use a modern piece (especially one that so seemed to characterize their relationship) rather than one written only a few years after the story takes place. Apparently I'm weird haha.

Ampara's death was really Cecilia's first direct experience with mortality. Her parents are wealthy and she's an only child, and she's led a pretty sheltered life. So it affected her more deeply than she would have thought.

Thank you so much for reviewing!
