    Summary

    Spiritual Successor to "It Came From the Vents." Gordon Freeman has spent three years trying to stabilize the AIs he befriended after a disastrous end to a military project. He's stolen company property, ignored his family, and neglected himself in hopes of success. Now that he's made progress, it's becoming increasingly apparent that one of the AIs in question may not be a program at all. No one can say for certain what this revelation will lead to, but one thing's for sure: HR is going to have a field day with this one.

    Summary

    -0 imposters remain-
    All four of the remaining crew let loose all of the pent up stress and terror at that. They had barely been able to force the two murderous beings in the airlock, and all of them had sustained some serious injuries, but now, it was over.

    Yellow started laughing hysterically, and ended up nearly falling over. White ended up catching them, and let the other lean on them. Black was leaning against the wall, wheezing, and crying. Red just watched, barely holding on to their (shredded) composure as the ejected imposters floated into oblivion. All of them were shaken and distressed. But at least it was over.

    Well, they’re all in for quite a ride. Because this isn't over. Not by a long shot. :))

    Summary

    Wow, this guy asked a lot of questions. He looked adorably lost. Tommy could point him in the right direction, but his mention of the break room reminded him of the nonsense on the wall in there, and he fought down a snort of laughter. Maybe the new guy would appreciate the signs.

    This started as a scene progression of the times Tommy goes out of his way to make Gordon laugh and the associated implications. It has quickly snowballed into narrating the whole saga from Tommy's point of view because I'm fucking insane, apparently.

    Summary

    It’s been fifteen years since Gordon put away the game for good. He packed up his life in New Mexico, moved up the country and got a real, fresh start in life, new job, new friends, the works- all was well. He doesn’t think about the people he left inside a video game after promising he’d get them out. It was just too painful, and at one point, it felt like it became too late to go back. He eventually forgot about the box that he stored the VR headset away in all those years ago, collecting dust and waiting for him to return.

    Well, maybe he can’t entirely forget it, but he’s done a damn good job of ignoring it.

    At least, until Joshua finds it.

    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?
