Birkin&Wesker - in secret

Fic: On a Limited Time

So, it looks like we have members and watchers! That's awesome. :D Just as a brief community update, I'm trying to come up with a header, but it's going to take a while, considering what little experience I have with Photoshop and the like. (Of course, the alternative of someone volunteering for the job is open - I'm certainly not set on making this comm in my own image.)

Anyway, the point of this post is this short fic here. To give fair notice, I'm really interested in the intimate take on their relationship right now and wrote this to explore that aspect, together with the character dynamic.

Title: On a Limited Time
Pairing: Wesker and Birkin, of course!
Rating: PG-13/soft R
Word Count: ~600
Summary: The early stage of Birkin and Wesker's relationship, namely their first attempt at intimacy. It happens faster than either of them would have expected. (Drabble-ish style, Wesker's perspective.)
Notes: This would take place a year or two after they started working together at Umbrella. Since there's not a lot of material covering that, it's heavily influenced by my take on the characters and how they got along. Most importantly, I found their using each other's given names fitting in the context of their ages and the contrast with their later relations (or my perception of them, anyway). Also, I think it's safe to assume Wesker would have worn jeans at least once in his life. (It's not like they don't make them, you know, black. XD) And that he wouldn't have been immune to any and all awkward situations, but that's starting to give away too much. On to the business!
