    Summary

    Gordon attempts to return to a normal life post-incident. Which should be easy - except for one glaring problem: Benry won’t leave him alone.

    Or, another post-canon, not actually a game AU. *shrug*

    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

    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

    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.
