Gaara // Naruto

Fic - Gaara, Kankurou

I decided to go ahead and write about these two since my Sasori fic is going nowhere. Seriously, nowhere. I'm 12 pages in and I haven't even gotten him turned into a puppet yet.

Title: Spark
Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Kankurou and Gaara (and Temari too, although not as much)
Genre: Gen/yey! Siblings!
Rating: Probably PG-13ish?
Wordcount: 4514
Warnings: All the blood and gore involved with Gaara killing things, language.
Summary: When a rare thunderstorm in Suna brings back memories of the old Gaara, a few small acts of kindness go a long way.
Disclaimer: Given that I'm not Kishi, I don't own Naruto.
A/N: I've been wanting to write for a while about the... weird family dynamics the Sandsibs have. They seem to change a lot during the timeskip especially, so this is set during that period.

- I decided to refer to Gaara in his Shuukaku form as it because... well, he's male, but Shuukaku appears to be a female demon and I don't really know what to make of that. (So, when he assumes that form, does he grow a giant, gaping centipede-filled tanuki demon vagina seven feet wide and fifteen feet long, or something? Because that's a rather distressing image, imho.)
- It used to be that when I wrote fics, they were usually 600-900 words long. And then I couldn't write anything under 1,000 words. And then, nothing under 2,000. Now, I'm apparently incapable of writing things less than 3,000 words (and, in this case, often quite a bit more). I must have severe logorrhea or something. Somebody send halp. ):
