    Summary

    Gordon spent 20 years helplessly flitting through memories and dreams. Now he's finally awake and everything smells like ashes. And yet, he's not passing up his chances to rough up the local dictatorship first, and get to spend time with those he missed second.

    (And maybe reexamine his totally platonic yearning towards a certain ex-spy-for-the-resistance.)

    Summary

    The toad, the thing, leaps straight up into the air — and in a burst of violet light, it explodes. Barney flinches back — but in between blinks the thing’s gone, sparks and all, leaving behind only a patch of disturbed sand.
    For a moment, Barney’s little oasis is nearly silent. Black Mesa hums beside him and the wind tears through the desert. He stares at the spot the toad had just been, blinking away the pink and violet aftermath.
    “What,” Barney whispers, “in the goddamned fuck.

    Summary

    Gordon needs to get out of here. Knock out this guard once they’re alone, get their weapons, run. Find out where he is, find out where to go, look for his friends, save them. Straightforward to-do lists lining up orderly in his head the moment it becomes clear that he’s lost and trapped and that right there is the enemy.

    And then the door is shut (there’s blood on the floor, there’s blood) and then the guard is turning to him, reaching up to their mask, and Gordon watches like a cornered animal, ready to lash out if prodded and-
     
    Barney.
     
    ---

    Gordon wakes up in an unfamiliar city, hell still on his mind, and reunites with some people.
