Chapter Title: Prologue
Series/Disclaimer: I don't own Resident Evil. I just like to pretend I can write fanfiction about it.
Pairing(s): Albert Wesker/Chris Redfield
Story Theme: Without You - Breaking Benjamin
Summary: Hunting Albert Wesker was as natural as breathing for Chris - but maybe his reasons for such a relentless pursuit aren't as simple as he likes to think.
Author's Notes: So, a while back I played Resident Evil 5. I got pretty obsessed, loved Chris and Wesker as characters but thought I'd finally met two characters who I didn't think would slash. I even told a friend of mine, "They're great rivals, but I don't think they'd work too well together."
I struggled for a plot line after a while. Grasped at straws, fought with logical and illogical ideas, read other fanfiction - some inspiring, some instilling doubt, and some just plain weird. I wrote some crack for them because it was all my brain could come up with, thought it was fine, walked away and left it at that.
And now, here I am, working on something serious and something I hope is seriously great. It's complicated and messy, it's psychological and physical. But I've analyzed, considered, examined, written, erased, walked away, and come back several times before settling on this idea. This idea that I really want to know makes sense outside of my own head and this idea that I'm proud of. It isn't completely original, I've gotten some inspiration from wonderful authors all over the spectrum, but then again, what is entirely original these days?
Either way, I hope you enjoy.( How dangerous could ashes be?Collapse )
