    Summary

    Gordon's got a few things to get used to. He wasn't living the most mentally healthy lifestyle before, but still... he doubts even the most well-adjusted people can unpack dying and ascending to godhood.

    Fuck, this is gonna be difficult.

    Summary

    Dating when you're a centuries-old god is nearly impossible. At least, Tommy thought it was, and then he met Darnold.

    ---

    Quand il me prend dans ses bras
    Qu'il me parle tout bas
    Je vois la vie en rose
    Il me dit des mots d'amour
    Des mots de tous les jours
    Et ça m'fait quelque chose

    Summary

    Despite the three dead goldfish and the rancid odor from the fridge, Gordon's apartment was pretty much the same as he had left it. Being gone fighting aliens, for a few days? Weeks? Who knew, had taken its toll on him. Gordon stood in the doorway, lingering for a few breaths to watch how the dust bunnies shifted from the light disturbance. He was home. All his friends had made it, well except for Benrey. He didn’t know what to consider the guard. The word friend filled him with bitter feelings, yet enemy left a sour twinge in his gut. Though that could just be the Chuck E. Cheese pizza.

    Summary

    Something in Tommy’s head just itches at him constantly, chips away at his rationality and assurance, drains him lifeless. It’s not a question of whether or not they’re strong enough to fight; it’s a question of what’s waiting to strike.

    Summary

    Gordon understood why he had to wear the HEV suit, but he still felt like he had the right to hate it. It was so hard to put on, it was bulky and hard to move in, it was even more of a hassle to take it off. He hated wearing it.
    He hated wearing it until now, of course, when he felt the dull spark of the shock go through him as the anti-mass-spectrometer or whatever exploded.

    -----

    Gordon's the only one left alive in Black Mesa after the anti-mass-spectrometer exploded. He's not, however, the only one left in Black Mesa.

    Summary

    Gordon is also an AI, but unlike the rest of them, he's not self-aware. Still, the Science Team cares too much about him to let him stay trapped by the code, and does their best to help him remember.

    Summary

    “You’re helping him.” Joshua tells Tommy. He adds leaves on a tree, black crayon blended with an ugly green marker.

    Tommy nods. Agrees. “I’m helping him.”

    There’s a lull in the conversation. Tommy’s doodles are in pen, now. Crushed soda cans and an old, old cat. A wilting flower. “You like my dad, don’t you?”

    Summary

    What if the overwhelming VR experience Gordon went through, had a deeper purpose than just being a simple simulation & a freelance debug job for him?
    But most importantly- what if Gordon Freeman listens to Metal & used to be in a band?

    Summary

    If Gordon's life was a movie, it'd be a goddamn comedy.

    He comes to this realization on a Saturday morning, standing in the 7/11 in his sweatpants as he stares down the hot stranger, holding a red bull in one hand and the other still holding open the cooler.

    Why?

    Because this shit is nothing short of fucking ridiculous, and somebody had better be laughing.

    Gordon woke up in an office building without any memories. That already sucked, but these four assholes narrating his every action weren't helping either. (stanley parable au!!)

    What if the Science Team spent longer in Black Mesa? Long enough that Gordon started to fall for Benrey? Long enough that Benrey fell for Gordon, too?
    What if Benrey betrayed Gordon anyway?

    Summary

    Gordon felt isolated, which was impossible because there were always other people around him. He was flooded with a constant influx of information at every turn while he was stuck in the depths of Black Mesa, but some of it seemed off. Maybe it was how extraordinary the situation was. Not everybody had aliens attacking them at every corner.

    Or maybe none of it was real.

    Loosely based off the multiplayer au by thecryptidcorvid on tumblr.
