Kanzaki Miki/Tachibana Aya with background Imaizumi/Shinkai, Yowamushi Pedal
Tags: Violence, attempted murder
Word count: 1000
Remix of [personal profile] princesssid's fill here, with references to another here.

Kanzaki is still staring at the note when Imaizumi comes through the front.

Before he can leave, she says, "How did your date go?"

Scarlet blossoms across the terse glare on his face. He looks away. "It was not a date. I've told you that enough, Kanzaki."

She laughs. "Really?"

"Really," he answers, withering repetition.

"That's good!" Kanzaki slaps the paper on her desk - the smiling rabbit, the short message - and carelessly spins her gun on top. "I was worried I'd be killing your boyfriend, or something."


When it all comes down to it, Kanzaki considers herself a rather patient person. She runs the Chiba branch without much complaint. She deals with the fact that Imaizumi is incapable of completing particular missions. She keeps close track of the timelines. And she normally managed to keep competitors' noses out of their business. By any right, she deserved a bit of a personal break from time to time.

Tachibana wasn't gang material, no matter how tough she may have been in the face of blood and bullet. But that was something Kanzaki enjoyed. Imaizumi wasn't either, and he stuck around, for lack of any place more welcoming.

Better yet, she didn't ask questions.

Sometimes Kanzaki could read them on her face. Where the burns had come from. If she remembered their last date, if they'd even had a previous date, or final date, at that point in time. The terrible dye job Naruko had pushed the three into. Whether it was blood or bike oil staining her skin. Why she buried her face against her sometimes without a word. Inexplicable glances at her hands that left her wondering if anything would happen there, either. But she didn't like hints, and wouldn't let Tachibana throw any around.

They had a contract.

"And it's sealed with a kiss!" Kanzaki had lied, through piles of paperwork and signatures built up over a dozen meetings.

"Haven't I given you enough already," Tachibana had grumbled.

She hadn't. A rule was already broken, but Kanzaki let it slip. Just once. Grinning over what was to come, she had only said, "Sorry Aya, the interest is where it really catches you."

Tachibana was all teeth and hair and awkwardness that never got much better. In a kiss, she could never tell when the two of them were. Only that it was - together.

Kanzaki liked that.


"What did he do this time," Imaizumi says.

"You know," Kanzaki drawls. "He broke the rules!"

Deadpan shifting into nervous energy, he repeats the question.

She smiles. "Imaizumi. You're smart, aren't you? Haven't we known each other long enough?"

Fingers splayed along the desk, twitching at her gun - not too close, for how she stares. He knows what she's capable of doing. Teeth grit louder in his mouth, almost as loud as his labored breathing.

"It's a joke," he says.

She hums. "It's not a very funny one then, is it?"

"He just. He always!" Imaizumi throws himself back, hand shoved over his mouth. Dozens of clocks run over themselves in his silence. It was already decided. "No. It's fine. It's none of my business." He talks as though he could have ever changed her mind. "Do what you want."



There are rules to this business.

Other organizations do their best to match it. Undue conflict never helped anyone. The time streams were difficult enough to catalogue as it was.

Don't interact too much with yourself.

Don't spread around information.

Let things fall where they will.

But really, all that Kanzaki had to worry about was -

Don't get outsiders involved.

The worst part was that it wasn't Shinkai's fault. The worst part was that it was her crime, to begin with.


"Kanzaki," he says. "Pleasure to see you."

Shikai is all red and blue, heat and chill, sweat and ease. It isn't a wonder that he can handle Imaizumi. It isn't a wonder, either, that he manages to get along with Tachibana. She was too trusting, despite a harsh mouth. Most people had learned not to approach her. Only people more dangerous would know what a facade it was.

"Of course," she says. "It's been a while. I got your note!"

He doesn't stop smiling. Neither does she.

"Good," he says.

"Where is she? I hope you haven't been boring her. Aya's never satisfied with sitting around with paperwork, you know?"

"You got here at just the right time." Of course she had. She wasn't one to waste it. Eyes on his hands, holster, shoulder, it was coming. "Sorry to call you out like this. It isn't often that I get the chance to see Souhoku's backbone."

Kanzaki's smile thins. A backbone with such a weakness as this.

"You know how it is. If I wasn't always on watch, Imaizumi wouldn't have a clue what to do with himself!"

He chuckles. "I'm glad he has you."

Imaizumi never let much out of his mouth. But it all showed in his nervous gait. Coming in late, or too early, frowning far more than usual. The days he'd come in wearing t-shirts instead of easily crumpled dress shirts. And every moment he was a little better than the day before - when it wasn't about revenge, but quiet irritation and fondness, making him go outside.

"Yeah," she said. "Both of us."

She doesn't give it much pause. He blinks, despite all that ease and calm, tiredly staring at the gun in her hand.

"Couldn't pull it over," he says. "Just like I'd have thought."

She figures Imaizumi could get another boyfriend.


Kanzaki daintily steps past him, as he stumbles to almost sitting. As it turns out, Tachibana is fine. Tachibana isn't there. Tachibana is at home, burning noodles despite perfectly seared vegetables.

Standing in the office, Kanzaki thinks about the fact that she didn't make sure he was dead.

By the time she gets back outside, he's gone.


People tried to teach lessons sometimes. In a business like this, it was more fool-hardy than not. In a business like this, it meant someone dying - usually.

The next time she sees Shinkai, she gives a thin smile, and a warning shot. He's polite, as ever, and gets out of the way.

Imaizumi doesn't ask questions. The best she sees out of him is a scoff over his phone, and an uncontrollable curve to his lips.

For the moment, it's worth the annoyance.

For respective weakness, she'd trade the difference and let Shinkai live.

this was so, so, so, SO SATISFYING. i feel incredibly lucky and awed that this is a remix of some of my stuff, seriously. it had action and intrigue and intense feelings and clever dialogue and ambiguous morality, basically everything that makes a great spy story.

i've said before your comments are like poetry and IT APPLIES HERE TOO, i loved pretty much every description of aya so much, how she burns her noodles but perfectly sears her vegetables, how she's maybe scary and tough to people who wouldn't know better, but those who do see how she isn't ;; i am in love with the ways everyone is in love with their respective (almost) partners here <3333

i almost screamed (in delight) at the tag "attempted murder" and then WHEN MIKI SAYS "I was worried I'd be killing your boyfriend, or something." I WAS. REALLY HAPPY? ??? the scenes with miki and shinkai were so good!! everything!!! is so good!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

also, i would like to ask for you permission to link to this fill on ao3! :>

:'c im glad ...

it isnt as detailed or careful as i would have liked to deliver but i always end up editing things a little bit much in crossposting. i really really adored your imashin & ayamiki fills in particular, among many things, so i was hoping i could explore that at least a little more - and bring them together, to a degree. the ayamiki aspect was the biggest mystery, though the imashin scene left open so many fascinating questions about how the time travel works and how people function within that in this business that i really keep thinking about! i'm someone who is terrible with time travel, but one of my favorite things is when all the major characters involved are hopping around each other, and there's a question on every end as to who the person they're talking to is, and how much they love them regardless of moment and space.

but im glad you enjoyed also the attempted murder aspect TT-TT i love miki interacting with people and being so morally gray and being unwilling to let go of what very little she allows herself in the first place. and shinkai understanding that, and being in similar places at certain points in The Ever Stretching Timelines, and being kind of a big ol' fool because he doesn't realize how difficult the receiving end of that treatment can be! fun times. Fun Times. no one is right but no one is wrong and that's nice to write.

and if you would like to link this, its ok ... i plan to crosspost after i edit it in a way i'm pleased with to mark it as a remix of your works but that might be months off because yknow how life can get in the way of plans.

im glad you liked it ... i appreciate the fact that you enjoyed it at all ... i wish i could better express how much i loved your fills but doing this is probably the best i've got in really hitting that home.
