    Summary

    They say that traumatic events can change the course of your life, for better or worse. Barney never much liked dichotomies like that; nothing in life was so simply one or the other.

    Black Mesa claimed to be an equal-opportunity employer, but what if your divergence from the norm went a little too far? Dr. Breen would happily accommodate anything, provided it was acceptable, something he didn't think one could choose.

    They also say that love prevails in the face of tragedy, but how many war stories had Gordon read to the contrary? How was he supposed to go about his work when his best friend lay motionless in a hospital bed? How was he supposed to pretend that everything was okay when he couldn't be there to protect him?

    Honestly, it was never just a workplace injury. Their occupational hazards ran much deeper and through messier labyrinths than either could have predicted.

    Summary

    In an au where after the events of HLVRAI, Gordon was put into stasis by G-Man and 20 years later the plot of Half-Life 2 takes place. Gordon reunites with the Science Team and even encounters a new friend: a sentient skeleton named Gregory.

    Before you read: This is written as the events being real in-universe and not a game but can be interpreted otherwise. Chances are I'm not going to write the Science Team reacting to every single moment in Half-Life 2, it will mainly be the important/interesting parts. I am not confident in my ability to describe the HL2 setting so I highly recommend that you play/watch a playthrough of HL2. This is also a very self indulgent fic and I'm writing it how I want too.

    Summary

    Sequel to Of Ratts and Men. City 17 may have been destroyed, but the Combine still reign supreme over Earth. Not only that, but Eli is miraculously alive and Alyx has gone missing. Now, the Half-Life gang must search for the fabled Borealis, an Aperture ship long gone missing, in order to find Dr. Mossman and retrieve the portal technology they need to find Alyx and finally beat the Combine. Lucky for them, three of the best candidates for the task have just emerged from a crumbling underground facility. Not so lucky for the Half-Life crew, the Combine has found them first.

    Follows the events of HL: Alyx, mostly canon-compliant but the timeline may be less so in order to bring all these characters together at once. Spoilers for all associated Half-Life and Portal games, including the ending of HL: Alyx. No warnings apply, but rated teen for non-graphic descriptions of violence and war-related themes as well as mention of PTSD and Schizophrenia. Currently Beta'd by the wonderful PastSelf on ff.net!

    Update Corner (10/24/2021): Ch8 approximately 50% complete.

    Edit: thanks to all the lovely readers for 1k+ views! Y'all are amazing!

    Summary

    Among other reasons, the lowly planet Earth caught the eye of the Combine Overlords due to the high concentration of a certain rare particle (known as "dark matter" to some, "Dust" to others) that manifested as dæmons: a part of a human's soul given physical form. Or, the life and times of one Alyx Vance and her dæmon Evander, from the Black Mesa Incident to the fall of City Seventeen.

    Spoilers for the whole series.

    Summary

    I sat down to write chapter 12 for my other fic, Anti-Citizen One, and three hours later this was on my google doc instead. Not sure where the inspiration came from or why I wrote it to begin with but oh well! It's here now and you have to deal with it.

    It's basically just a short one-off story. It's full of angst and feelings so tread carefully.

    Summary

    What if Alyx were to touch him there, he wonders, a hand over his chest. Not many people have. It’s a vulnerable area. Easy to stab or shoot if left unprotected.

    He would let Alyx touch him there, if she asked.

    Summary

    The barkeep says, "can you assholes not destroy this place for the third time this month?"

    The party doesn't respond because someone is already trying to slit the bard's throat.


    Magical Institute of Taronkeep dropout Gordon Freeman decides to turn his life around in the pursuit of adventure and quickly finds himself with a... very strange adventuring party. An intellectual barbarian, an atheist cleric, a chipper warlock with a patron of darkness, and a bard who seems to be incapable of not flirting with him are who he's going to be stuck with for at least a while.

    Maybe even longer, if the strange paper weight he accidentally stole is any indicator...

    Summary

    Cooperative games are often analyzed through the framework of cooperative game theory, which focuses on predicting which coalitions will form, the joint actions that groups take, and the resulting collective payoffs.

    Gordon Freeman's got a sequel to get to, whether he likes it or not.

    Summary

    It’s more than just being nervous. There’s this unmistakable sense that something’s wrong, like that instinctual creeping feeling that prickles beneath your skin when you’re being watched, or when a room up ahead looks too arranged to where it must be an ambush. There’s this odd, numb feeling on Alyx’s left side that makes this feeling swell.
