    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

    No one expected Benrey to live. No one expected him to suddenly show up in Gordon's living room. Benrey was supposed to die on Xen. He did die.

     

    And then he woke up.

    Summary

    All the collected scattered thoughts, worldbuilding, characterization ideas and headcannons that go into Crowbar & Stray Physicists continuities. I have been posting these on Tumblr but am collecting them here because it was getting old to scroll through everything to find it again :P

    I read a lot of other worldbuilding / headcannon posts. If I have amalgamated and swallowed someone else's thought and regurgitated it here without credit, I apologize. If you see something here and say Hey I want to Use That, 100% go for it!

    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

    “If your not careful and noclip out if reality in wrong areas, you'll end up in the backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of moist carpet, the madness of mono-yellow, and endless backround noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz, and approximately six hindered million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms to be trapped in.”

    “God save you if you hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell heard you.”

    I guess Gordon didn’t know that

    Summary

    Freeman's a brittle repressed loner with too much white around the eyes. New security guard Beth Calhoun picks him as the one most likely to snap and decides to avert that catastrophe before it starts. If there's one thing she's good at, it's holding the door open for people. For years, if necessary. For as long as it takes.

    Mucking around with a genderflipped Calhoun because media doesn't often let middle-aged women with guns be the proactive instigators of their own relationships.
    Chapters 1-6: Establishing characters & background
    Chapters 7- : Blue Shift write-through

    Rating bumped up for chapter 10 and beyond

    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

    Chapter 1: Gordon Freeman is an excellent physicist but human interaction, and the mutual respect it demands, is really not his gift.
    Chapter 2: Alyx has learned to build her own future and thrive despite the rubble of civilization, but she's got no time for her father's favorite ghost.
    Chapter 3: Alyx and Barney have a chat about their newest asset, and Alyx considers risk and maintenance. Set in HL2 chapter 5.
    Chapter 4: The battle for City 17 isn't easy on anyone. Rating bumped up for this chapter.
    Chapter 5: City 17 isn't won yet and progress is hard to measure. Luckily, there's a D0G.
    Chapter 6: Barney goes to find Freeman on the eve of the final push, and realizes he's been overlooking things.
    Chapter 7: A Terrible Idea for curing Freeman's reflex problem.
    Chapter 8: Homesick in White Forest
    Apparently there will be more of these. This is set in the same continuity as Physics of the Crowbar.
    No reference to ships, but not hostile to them either. Just... good luck figuring that out with this version of Freeman. Updating tags as content is added.

    Summary

    Agent Michael [REDACTED], a government agent who's main job is to cover up the numerous lawsuits and OSHA violations charged against Black Mesa. After a severe brush with cancer as a result of his former employment with Aperture Science, he's hoping Black Mesa will be a walk in the park. He'll soon learn, however, that nothing is a walk in the park when it comes to Black Mesa versus the law.

    Security Chief Calhoun, head of security at Black Mesa. He's rarely seen by anyone, much less the security team. He's considered by many to be the Administrator's right hand man--or his lapdog, to those who hate him. No one is sure of when he turned up; they've just assumed that he's always been at the job and they haven't noticed. He mans the surveillance room. If any kind of danger presented itself, Calhoun would be on the job in a heartbeat. Don't be fooled by those sleepy eyes--he's always watching.

    And Gordon Freeman, an MIT graduate who often finds himself working as a heavy lifter for the science team.

    Three individuals--caught in one resonance cascade that will change them forever.

    Summary

    Nothing could possibly make him feel any worse and more awkward than he already did.

    And wouldn't you believe it? Just as Stanley thought this, another young man frantically entered the broom closet and slammed its door shut, pressing his own back firmly against the metal shelving behind him.
