    Summary

    Half Life: the game everyone exists because of. "Reality" is a complicated mess, and the Science Team can only really start to untangle it all after they finally leave the game. Where are they now, though, if not a video game world that constricts them to very particular roles they were meant for? Who are they now after the game, if not NPCs, or the player? What exactly does it mean, to not be real? They may be living post-game domestic bliss, but that doesn't take away from the things they went through. They've got a lot to unpack.

    this fic is part of a series with my other pre-canon boomer backstory fic "could i try again, try again, try again?", but reading that isn't necessary to understand it, just additional fun if you're interested. updates sundays and thursdays!

    Summary

    Another thump, then another, then another. Enormous, ground-shaking footsteps, coming closer. His body froze up, locked in place in the middle of the countertop, muscles refusing to respond, every ingrained borrower instinct screaming at him to run, to hide, to get the hell out of the open. Yet he couldn’t move as the bone-rattling steps grew louder, and louder, until finally, a colossal figure appeared in the far doorway, casting a vast shadow in the light from the other room.

    Summary

    When Gordon wakes up on Monday, after a long weekend of preparing for the Fourth of July, he is satisfied with the work he’s got cut out for him. You can only set up and mess with your new barbeque so many times without thinking of work, and in Gordon’s line of work, it’s almost necessary for him to constantly be thinking of it. Especially with the addition of the new Secure Research Facility Complex to the Black Mesa facilities, there are gonna be a lot more people wanting to talk to him.

    But after visiting SRFC for an introduction, both Black Mesa and SRFC go down; a containment breach of catastrophic proportions. After nearly all faculty have been wiped out, Gordon, armed with a crowbar and his own brain, must find a way out of SRFC and back to the Black Mesa complex in one piece without either being killed by incoming MTF, Black Mesa guards, or worse, the unknown beings that live within SRFC.

    Or, Gordon and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

    [AU where Black Mesa and SCP work together, and the Resonance Cascade never happens.]

    Summary

    Agent Michael [REDACTED], a government agent who's main job is to cover up the numerous lawsuits and OSHA violations charged against Black Mesa. After a severe brush with cancer as a result of his former employment with Aperture Science, he's hoping Black Mesa will be a walk in the park. He'll soon learn, however, that nothing is a walk in the park when it comes to Black Mesa versus the law.

    Security Chief Calhoun, head of security at Black Mesa. He's rarely seen by anyone, much less the security team. He's considered by many to be the Administrator's right hand man--or his lapdog, to those who hate him. No one is sure of when he turned up; they've just assumed that he's always been at the job and they haven't noticed. He mans the surveillance room. If any kind of danger presented itself, Calhoun would be on the job in a heartbeat. Don't be fooled by those sleepy eyes--he's always watching.

    And Gordon Freeman, an MIT graduate who often finds himself working as a heavy lifter for the science team.

    Three individuals--caught in one resonance cascade that will change them forever.

    Summary

    Dr Gordon Freeman, one of Black Mesa’s weapon scientists and a sub-mercenary, got an unusual mission from The Administrator. Despite being a mission, the only info he’d got from them was more than just an ordinary attack.

    “Something has landed in New Mexico’s nearest US Military Base and whatever that is, it’s alive and it’s coming to us.”

    Nobody told him that they’re already invading the facility as soon as he walked out of the office.

    With him, his personally-assigned HEV suit, and a crowbar, his current mission is no longer to handle the threat.

    Now it’s time to survive this foreign attack in one piece and extract any survivors.
