Title: Moment of Inertia
Fandom: Air Gear
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Suggested Sano/Kazu, mentions of Kogarasumaru and Gabishi
Dedication: peroxidepest17, since you were the one who got me into this pairing! And golfballs, for prodding me to finally get caught up.
Prompt: Me thinking, “Sano! Go comfort your uke, you dumbass!” after the events of Ch. 117.
Description: A blow to one’s ego can often be more painful than any physical wound. Sano decides to pay Kazu a late-night visit, but not for the usual reasons.
Rating: PG-13 for very mild profanity, hinted shounen-ai and a bit of angst
Word Count: 2,046.
Status: Complete, minor edits while in progress.
Other Notes: This is my first fic in literally almost six months. I didn’t intend to go so long without writing—I really wanted to—but I really just absolutely have not had any inspiration. So the minute this plotbunny bit me, I rushed to write it down, without really thinking it out too much before I began. So this is a lot more impulsive than my usual writing is, and I apologize if it’s not quite up to my usual standards. I was just overjoyed that I finally managed to win my own battle against inertia. :P Anyhoo, this fic wasn’t really intended to be a true part of my “Fire-verse”, though it can fit into that head canon if you want it to. I purposely made all references to the state of Sano and Kazu’s relationship fairly ambiguous, to leave that part up to the reader to decide. Spoilers up to the end of Ch. 117, and very vague hints toward the events of Ch. 126. This fic was specifically intended to fit into the canon during/around Ch. 119.
