    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

    "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

    Something in life guides everyone to what they are supposed to do. Sometimes it's people and sometimes it's the choices that are made.

    Chell is on the surface and finds the world is a much different place than the depths of Aperture. She has to battle this strange new world and come to terms with her own mind.

    Gordon and Alyx are trying to fulfill Eli’s dying last wish but that’s easier said than done. Between blizzards and Combine forces, what the Borealis contains could spell disaster for everyone on board.

    Meanwhile, White Forest is still recovering after the death of Eli Vance. Everyone mourns but Barney Calhoun just tries to keep everything from falling apart any further than they already have.

    Summary

    The generation that came of age during the occupation of Earth by the Combine, colloquially known as ‘The Last Generation’, was a unique assembly of soldiers, survivors, and fighters. Their childhood nursery rhymes sang the legend of their liberator Gordon Freeman; their early education was in survival instead of literacy. To a human who had not spent their childhood in warfare, they were borderline incomprehensible.

    To Gordon Freeman, their college professor, they were a headache.

    In which Gordon Freeman teaches community college, Alyx Vance has her great coming of age story, and Barney Calhoun pines like extinct vegetation. And in which everybody grows older, but nobody grows up.

    Summary

    Vortigaunts do not experience time the way humans do. Time is not a flat line where the past is behind them. It is with them always. More then memory. Regrettably less then time travel. Because if Uriah could change these moments of the past, then he would have known what to say when the human he did not yet know as Dr. Arne Magnusson finds him.

    But he revisits it often all the same, with the appreciation of the many years between them.

    It is the day of Black Mesa; when the end of the hopeless future will come. It hasn't happened yet; and the Vortigaunt who is not yet named Uriah remembers how it felt to first look at the sky.

    (Or: In which the author gets kind of Really Into trying to write an alien perspective with a wholly different outlook on time, and also what that would mean when you are in love with someone, and also no force on earth can tell me these two aren't A Thing.)

    Summary

    "Don't worry, Gordon! He'll have us back inside quick as a whip. I think the science team in AnMats is very lucky to have Officer Calhoun, don't you think?"

    no, you want to say, but your hands do not move and you're struggling against-- against something, an impulse so inane and foolish that you feel like setting fire to your goddamn PhD. you stare at Dr. Kleiner for an impossibly long second, then grab at the bobby pins keeping your hair out of your face.

    most clatter on the floor, but one is gripped firmly, and you bend it out of shape. your knees hit the cold tiles with painful zings-- you're skin and bones on a good day; there's not much to cushion you from the unforgiving metal. the lock makes a few promising sounds as you jam the bobby pin through, relying in no small part on muscle memory. there's stunned silence around you-- good.

    the door clicks. you push it open with the flat of your palm, and are greeted by cocksure Officer Calhoun's face slipping into surprise.

    "I think we have it from here, Officer," you say, your signs deliberate and your grin savage.

    Summary

    "Gordon isn't here because he's three halls down, hooked up to every machine we can think of just to keep him breathing. They're too scared to even touch him right now. You know why? Because he has so many concussions that his skull started leaking into his brain. Because we pushed him until he broke. That's why you didn't see him out there." Two-shot.
