    Summary

    What happens when Joshua finds out what his dad went through in Black Mesa?

    The science team's trip to Xen causes them to mutate so much they have to skip town and live in the wilderness, leaving everyone and everything behind. Years later, Gordon gets to see his son again. After all this time alone, how will he feel seeing how his dad's changed? After finding out what he's capable of now? Can they ever be the same?

    I recommend reading the oneshot before this in the series (Mutant AU) since it takes place in the same universe and you ought to meet Joshua's mother. This fic can still be understood without it though!

    Summary

    Dr. Bubby and Dr. Harold Coomer had always been work friends to a degree in Black Mesa. It was the typical sort of affair, they didn’t really converse or meet up away from the experiments and research. But they’d still spent many a night talking past hours, and weren’t strangers at all.
    It all stayed formal, until the Resonance Cascade.

    Summary

    "You" he said, "are a terribly real thing in a terribly false world, and that, I believe, is why you are in so much pain"

    Summary

    Gordon Freeman largely kept to himself. He found the natural laws of the universe more fascinating than people, and actively ensured that he never let anyone get too close. It always led to misery.

    Fresh out of grad school and with a PhD added to his name, he noticed an advertisement while job searching on LinkedIn. A company he’d never heard of was seeking play-testers for their experimental virtual reality game, and the compensation was too good to be real. But there was a catch: Gordon didn’t know he’d be thrust into an all-too-lifelike apocalypse.

    After finally escaping that hell, with his companions somehow joining him in the real world, Black Mesa had one last job for him: teach these AI to become more than just machines. A loner with no friends, asked to become a teacher on what it meant to be human, all because these chaotic not-people tolerated him more than those previously? Gordon felt he would regret accepting their ludicrous proposition.

    Summary

    “You know the fucking plan?” Forzen asked.

    “We know the fucking plan.” Benrey said. Gordon nodded next to him. Benrey adjusted a strap across his chest.

    “Good. We can’t afford to fuck this one up.” Forzen gestured. “If we get what we need out of this one, we’ll be riding pretty - almost good enough to retire.”

    Gordon is given a second lease on life and a chance to right the errors of his past. He doesn't really have a choice, actually. It's better than bleeding out on a bank floor.

    Summary

    Half Life: the game everyone exists because of. "Reality" is a complicated mess, and the Science Team can only really start to untangle it all after they finally leave the game. Where are they now, though, if not a video game world that constricts them to very particular roles they were meant for? Who are they now after the game, if not NPCs, or the player? What exactly does it mean, to not be real? They may be living post-game domestic bliss, but that doesn't take away from the things they went through. They've got a lot to unpack.

    this fic is part of a series with my other pre-canon boomer backstory fic "could i try again, try again, try again?", but reading that isn't necessary to understand it, just additional fun if you're interested. updates sundays and thursdays!

    Summary

    Benrey never expected to wake up. Nobody expected them to wake up, really. But they were awake, and that was kind of a Weird Problem. Namely for Gordon, who can't decide how he feels about Benrey being back. Lots of conflicted feelings all around. When it comes to the Benrey situation, there's only one thing that anyone knows for sure...

    it's complicated.

    Summary

    After Benrey was defeated Gordon reached to see the body of his enemy, maybe making sure he was dead even if in the inside he never wanted this, the voices of a fallen resonated through his mind, memories, a lot of them, that couldn't be over there, why did it had to happen, why did he had to lose him, maybe they won but he knew Benrey wasn't like that on purpose, he wanted the truth he needed the truth, everyone knew something he didn't, and he made a promise, they were all going to get out of there, dead, or alive, he knew there was still hope, he wasn't going to lose it.

    Summary

    The portal back to Earth closes and Gordon’s on the wrong side.

    Everyone else made it out but him. Gordon stands alone on the planet of Xen and realizes just how far away he is from everything and everyone he knows. Xen has thousands of beings who will try and kill him the second they see him and Gordon can try to survive all he likes but with so little knowledge of Xen, they’re going to catch up to him eventually.

    In order to survive, Gordon will need a guide or at the very least, an ally of some sort. Fortunately, there is one being on Xen he knows who might be able to help.

    Unfortunately, it’s the same guy Gordon just tried to kill.

    Summary

    The blare of the emergency meeting alarm made Gordon jump and drop the wires he was teasing back together with a startled curse. At his feet, Joshua looked up, and Gordon could see his stern little face through the child-sized visor as he pursed his lips.

    “Dad, why are there so many meetings on this ship?”

    Gordon sighed and swung Joshua up onto his shoulders before moving out of the electrical room and heading up through storage toward the cafeteria at a brisk trot. “This is a different kind of ship than we’re used to, buddy. It’s not a transport, remember? It’s a mission ship. And there were some, uh, issues with the last ones, remember how we talked about that? So if anyone sees anything weird, they have to call a meeting about it, and we all have to make sure to show up as soon as possible.”

    He felt the thud of Joshua flopping dramatically over the top of his helmet. “But this is the third one today, and they’re so boring,” Joshua whined. “Everyone just stands around and talks.”

    Gordon chuckled as he stepped into the main conference room. “Yeah, bud, that’s what a meeting is. You’ve broken it down to the bare essentials.”

    Summary

    "What do you mean you're bugging out?”

    “Like I’m not even supposed to get hurt, have godmode on, indestructible you know.”

    Gordon does in fact not know but nods anyway.

    “And now suddenly everything hurts and it sucks.”

     

    Benrey is back and doesn't have his powers anymore, angst and shenanigans ensues.

    Summary

    Gordon Freeman is an engineer aboard the Resonance 1, a Moon-orbiting space station operated by the company, BlackMesa, in 2035. Ever since arriving over a year ago, he’s been having strange dreams since providing a map of his brain for the Neuromod Division as customary for all employees.

    He doesn’t know the true nature of the facility, that it’s actually a cage for an alien species known as Typhon which are experimented on for research, their neural patterns acting as the blueprint for the company’s Neural Modifiers, a tool that allows humans to change the structure of their brain to acquire new skills.

    When the ghosts in hiding finally break free from their shackles, with his unknowing help, he’s gonna need a lot more than his wrench to try and fix this mess.
