    Summary

    “I think our rendezvous point is a gay bar,” Hal observed, voice low.

    There was considered silence, then rustling as Dave — no, Pliskin, he remembered they weren’t supposed to know each other — produced a matchbook and a cigarette, taking his time in lighting it. “That a problem?”

    Post-Tanker Incident. Snake and Otacon deal with repression, impulsiveness, and the consequences of trying to have your cake and eat it too.

    Summary

    This is a present for a gift exchange. There isn't much plot here, but if you want to read 4000 words of Barney Calhoun and Gordon Freeman loving each other a lot? I have got the story for you.

    Technically this is in the same universe as Gordon in Breen's Office, What Propaganda Will He Make but you don't need to read that to understand this, or vice versa.

    Summary

    Gordon shakes his head. “No. I’m fine, it’s just--” he pauses for a moment. When he starts speaking again, he moves slowly, picks his words carefully. “It’s been a long time since I've been touched by someone who wasn’t... trying to kill me.”

    He almost regrets speaking at the expression that fills Barney’s face. Gordon can only just barely hold eye contact on the best of days, and as much as he’s wanted to drink in the sight of Barney as often as he can, the sheer piercing sadness forces him to avert his eyes entirely.

    “Do--” Barney swallows, his voice uncharacteristically quiet. “Do you... want to be?”

    Summary

    When the rift in space was sealed and the Resonance Cascade had ended, one glaring problem remained: they were homeless. Not in the “dire financial straits” way so much as the “our living quarters were destroyed by an interdimensional anomaly” way. It was midnight when they left the Chuck E. Cheese, and they had nowhere to go.

    Hi I wrote this to cope. Sometimes you just gotta have a nervous breakdown in a hotel room with the love of your life.
