    Summary

    The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference. And, truly, what is a place more wrong for Gordon Freeman than Dr Breen's office?

    Well, what's a little misinformation between friends?

    [How will Gordon's life change, living in the Citadel?
    When will he put 2 and 2 together and realize something Isn't Right?
    How long can I make Barney Calhoun yearn for?
    Will my burning hatred for Ravenholme be made clear?
    These are the questions you should tune in to have answered!]

    Summary

    "The lambda gave them something more substantial to fight for than the truth. If she couldn't ignore her father's secrets, she'd shut them out long enough to get the job done."

    Eli is dead. Gordon's awake, slave to a man who seeks to capitalize on old debts from Black Mesa. And caught in the crosshairs, Alyx struggles to keep the Resistance alive long enough to recover Dr. Mossman and locate the Borealis.

    Sequel to "Something Secret Steers Us." WIP.

    Summary

    “For good or ill, I serve you for as long as you hold my contract. You do not own me - my service only applies to your protection. If you hurt me, you invalidate the contract. If you lose the contract, destroy the contract, give me the contract, or otherwise compromise the contract, you invalidate the contract. I am the only one who determines what qualifies as invalidation and only I determine the repercussions,” Charon said robotically. “I am not at odds with killing you if you break your terms.”

    Summary

    Y'all saw it coming. Every fandom has to have a high school au, or maybe I'm just stuck in 2014.

    After moving from Boston to 'the middle of nowhere' Alabama, Gordon Freeman finds himself lost- metaphorically and physically. Who better to help him then the dashing boy sitting right next to him, that is, if he's really what he says he is.

    (updates might not be frequent, but expect them)

    Summary

    There's a lot to be said for living and working in the same giant underground research facility as the love of your life, but sometimes, the strict dress code can be a real bummer.

    (Alternate title: Five times Barney saw Gordon out of uniform and didn't know how to handle it, and one time Gordon's outfit didn't matter at all.)

    ON INDEFINITE HIATUS AS OF JULY 4, 2020.
