    Summary

    "Creator gives you all you need, but only if you help yourself. If you need a camp of rebels to cook greasy headcrab over a battered oil drum so your sorry, limping ass can live, He'll give it to you. But show Him who you really are. Take off that mask. Be nice. Sit down. Reintroduce yourself."

    A Civil Protection defector recounts her story to a group of rebels.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Written really well. POVs blend together very well. First, second, and third person aren’t clearly defined, and defining the types here May do this writing a disservice. The parallels between the Cobine and the U.S. government are crystal clear.

    (Time Loop AU, HL1/Black Mesa remake to HL2) In which the G-Man is needlessly cruel on purpose, and Gordon’s sudden inability to speak is the least of his problems. Or, “New Game Plus” AU if you prefer.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is what I think Gordon Freeman was doing those 20 years. I read this and thought, “oh this makes so much sense! This is what happened between Black Mesa and City 17. I think this happened. Well written.

    Dreamless sleep is the closest humans come to understanding death. By that logic, stasis isn't death at all.

    Because Gordon Freeman dreams.

    Summary

    Barney finds a way to make Dr. Breen's horrible speeches a little more interesting, and nearly kills Gordon with laughter in the process. All's well that ends well.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The writing here is great! I love laundry day and this fic wasn’t a really nice peak into a small part of a greater story. I really love the use of second person, it was used really well here.
