    Summary

    Benrey was the first to become self-aware. They spend the first half of their free conscience entirely alone. This is a glance into those times, and a look into the peculiar abilities it gave him. This is a closer look at the strange, virtual ties that hold him down. The nature of Benrey's reality in this game is strange. They've been made into a monster - into Gordon Freeman's greatest enemy.

    If that's supposed to be the case, then why does Benrey remember Gordon so vividly? Why does he recall him with such fondness?

    He won't stop until he finds out.

    Title from the song "Papillon" by The Narcissist Cookbook.

    Summary

    Joshua Freeman is a relatively normal fifteen year old. He tries his best in his classes, he hangs out with friends after school, he skateboards for fun, and he likes to play video games. He must have gotten all the "normal" genes in the family though, considering his dad is agoraphobic and can hardly leave his own room some days. Still, his dad loves him, and he tries his best to let Joshua live a full and happy life, despite his own anxieties.

    But when Joshua starts having weird dreams where he's stuck in some sort of void and his only companion is a tall man in a suit, he might realize that his dad has had a lot more against him than he originally thought.

    Summary

    Gordon is starting to notice things about Benry.

    Things that make him a little less unbearable. If he's not careful, he might end up liking Benry.

    Tolerating him.

    It's like drops in a bucket.

    Summary

    The Black Mesa Auction is held every few years, selling off projects and bits of Black Mesa science that have passed their NDA or no longer radiate lethal levels of toxic fumes, and are safe to distribute to staff.

    Gordon Freeman attends one such auction and buys a oddly mundane video tape.
