    Summary

    It is Dr. Gordon Freeman’s first week of employment at Black Mesa. Between the pompous scientists and daunting multi-million dollar projects, a pang of loneliness rattles in his chest. But it’s nothing that a healthy dose of nostalgia can’t fix, involving a certain old college professor…

    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

    Green likes to think he's not the same person he was ten years ago. At twenty-four, Green now runs a Gym, sets an example for his community, and occasionally thinks before he speaks. Family and obligations complicate his new self-view, however. It's one thing to do his sister a favor and smile for the cameras for one festive weekend, and quite another to face all his mistakes head on in the form of the only friend who loved him enough to be hurt by him. But, hey, there's supposed to be fireworks.

    Summary

    Blue is Kanto Champion for thirty-nine minutes.

    That’s it. Technically, he’s part of the Hall of Fame, technically he’s an accepted Champion. Technically, the title was his once, so it will always be his. Technically, he can’t lose it. He just loses being the present Champion.

    He also, briefly, held the Kanto record for youngest ever Pokemon League champion. That was until Red, three months younger, caught up to him.

    Really, Blue hadn’t even been surprised.

    --
    Blue loses the Championship, Red disappears up a mountain, and everything that happens afterwards.
