    Summary

    Chapter 1: Gordon Freeman is an excellent physicist but human interaction, and the mutual respect it demands, is really not his gift.
    Chapter 2: Alyx has learned to build her own future and thrive despite the rubble of civilization, but she's got no time for her father's favorite ghost.
    Chapter 3: Alyx and Barney have a chat about their newest asset, and Alyx considers risk and maintenance. Set in HL2 chapter 5.
    Chapter 4: The battle for City 17 isn't easy on anyone. Rating bumped up for this chapter.
    Chapter 5: City 17 isn't won yet and progress is hard to measure. Luckily, there's a D0G.
    Chapter 6: Barney goes to find Freeman on the eve of the final push, and realizes he's been overlooking things.
    Chapter 7: A Terrible Idea for curing Freeman's reflex problem.
    Chapter 8: Homesick in White Forest
    Apparently there will be more of these. This is set in the same continuity as Physics of the Crowbar.
    No reference to ships, but not hostile to them either. Just... good luck figuring that out with this version of Freeman. Updating tags as content is added.

    Summary

    Barneys given up a lot for the Rebellion. He doesn't mind that so much; if he's got anything left that's his to give, he'll lay it all on the line just for the chance to protect what's left of the people closest to him.

    He just wishes he could remember exactly what it was he gave up this time. He can't remember, just yet.

    But all the important things are starting to come back to him. Bit by bit.

    -----
    A fic about Barney Calhoun recovering from the risks he takes in the name of becoming a spy for the Resistance, piecing his memory back together. Contains some descriptions of pain/injury, temporary memory loss, me getting in my feelings about Barney Calhoun again, and generally a fun time had with trying to piece together world building.

    Draws on information and characters from Half Life Alyx, but does not contain spoilers.

    Summary

    Alyx sat up in bed. Her limbs were heavy, and her back screamed in protest to every movement she made, no matter how minute. Every part of her was tired from the past, well.. As long as she could remember. Having the opportunity to finally relax and lie down, not having to make sure she could wake up and start shooting at a moment’s notice was almost unnatural to her.

    She knew she was just being dumb about this. Really, she had everything she needed to have a long sleep; physical exhaustion, a comfortable bed, clean clothes, relative safety...

    There was just one problem.

    She can’t sleep, no matter how hard she tries.

    ~~~

    Alyx can't sleep, and finds comfort in being around other people.

    Summary

    Barney has some trouble getting home after taking Alyx home from a field trip, and gets stuck thinking about how much he's still holding onto the past even while trying to make sure there'll be a future.
    ----
    In which I have been thinking just a lot about Barney Calhoun, and the concept of him as a central figure in the resistance as an almost folkloric figure to Gordon's saint, and also very sad gay thoughts.
