Cats go on adventures, presidents threaten nuclear war and, well, ex-Valve writers post thinly-disguised plot summaries of the unreleased and, so far as best guesses golong-cancelled Half-Life 2: Long time Half-Life scribe, the excellent Marc Laidlaw who left Valve last yearcasually tossed out a link to his website last night, which led to a short story about Gertie Fremont, Alex Vaunt and their climactic battle against evil alien invaders the Disparate. While that might sound like satirical tomfoolery, the actual story very much sounds like how the final chapter of Half-Life 3 could have played out.
It involves time-travelling cruise liners, resurrected overlords, the heart of the Combine and the fate of one Doctor Gordon Freeman. This is really happening. I strongly encourage you to read the story itself rather than rely on my summary below: As noted above, most of the characters have been genderswapped — Gordon is Gertrude, Alex is… well, Alex, but a male Alex, we get Wanda Breen and sinister grey figure Mrs. As long-suspected to be the case, the tale centres about a great lost ship, the Borealis here named the Hyperboreastranded in the Arctic or Antarctic, depending on which version you go with and which contains something of potentially critical importance to the human-Combine war.
Spoilers for the theoretical and unconfirmed plot of the theoretical and unconfirmed Half-Life 2: Episode 3 now follow. In short, the ship contains a device, created by scientists before the Combine invasion, that enables it to traverse space in an instant. However, it also possesses some manner of time-jumping prowess, which a means the ship flickers in and out of existence, thus making the act of boarding it complicated for Gertude and chums and b once they do board it, they are treated to visions of other times and places — including the Seven Hour War Nine Hour Armageddon and an immense Combine Disparate staging ground, somewhere off in deep space.
Half-Life 2 Episode 3 plot | Rock Paper Shotgun
X — gee, not a man? But, rather than absconding with Gertrude, as per previous form, she whisks Alex off to either safety or servitude and leaves Fremont to her fate.
Is this the end for Gertrude Fremont?
But what of Alex, spirited away by Mrs. As one of the core members of the City 17 branch, her contributions mostly included assisting Kleiner and Barney Calhoun in helping Citizens escape the city to Black Mesa East through the old Canalsas well as helping Kleiner, her father and Judith Mossman establish a teleport connection between Black Mesa East and Kleiner's Lab. She is working with this at the time of Half-Life 2. Half-Life 2[ edit ] Alyx meets Gordon for the first time.
Alyx is arguably the most important character in Half-Life 2, as she helps Gordon Freeman more frequently and directly than any other character. Her first appearance is in the first chapter of the game, Point Insertionin a scene where Gordon has been intercepted by Civil Protection units while he is still an unarmed civilian, due to a miscount detection. Alyx rushes in the room and takes down the CPs by herself although this is not explicitly shown on-screen.
However, the two unintentionally part ways after Kleiner's teleportation device malfunctions, forcing Gordon to continue through City 17 on his own.
Alyx shortly before being separated from Gordon during the street war.
Later, she gives Gordon the Gravity Gun and demonstrates its use. Alyx is also shown having a heated argument with Dr. Judith Mossmana hostility that appears justified as Mossman is revealed a traitor in the chapter Entanglementwhere Gordon helps Alyx search Nova Prospekt for her captured father.
In the chapter Anticitizen Oneshe fights alongside Gordon through a section of City 17 during the armed uprising but they are again separated when Alyx is kidnapped by Overwatch Soldiers while scouting an escape route from a rooftop vantage point.
They are reunited later in the chapter Dark Energywhen Gordon reaches Breen's office in the Citadel. There she provides indirect assistance to Gordon during the final confrontation with Dr.
Breen in the Citadel's dark fusion reactor. Alyx also seems to have made peace with Dr. Mossman after seeing her turn on Dr.
Breen and release Gordon Freeman, Eli and Alyx herself from their imprisonment. While the G-Man saves Gordon from the enormous blast, Alyx is apparently left behind, frozen in time with one arm shielding her eyes.
Episode One[ edit ] Alyx debating with Dog.
Alyx manages to survive, being rescued by Vortigauntswho also free Gordon from the influence of his "employer", the G-Man; after being teleported away at the foot of the Citadel and briefly revisiting it to postpone the destruction of the Citadel CoreAlyx and Gordon stick together for most of Episode One, finally getting to the exit from City 17 and jumping on the last Resistance train wagon heading out of the City just as the Citadel explodes.
Episode Two[ edit ] Alyx being held by the Vortigaunt.
Alyx appears in Episode Two throughout the game, and is almost always with Gordon. She once again rescues Gordon at the beginning of the game by using the Gravity Gun to free him from the remains of their crashed train, which fell off a bridge that was destroyed because of the Citadel explosion at the end of Episode One.
After making a first communication with White Foresta large Resistance base, she is severely injured by a Hunterbut Gordon and a Vortigaunt manage to steal Antlion extract and use it to save her.

During the process of reviving her, the G-Man reappears and informs Gordon that the reason Alyx remained alive during the events of Half-Life 2 and its expansions is because he "plucked" her from Black Mesa before the Resonance Cascade destroyed the facility, ignoring the orders from his superiors - that she was a mere child and of no practical use. He tells Gordon to escort her to White Forest safely, telling Alyx to relay the words "prepare for unforeseen consequences" to her father.
She then accompanies Gordon on their journey to get to White Forest. Throughout the journey, she helps Gordon at many points, by providing sniping support for him using a mounted Combine sniper rifle as he makes his way through a Zombie -infested industrial complex to get to the Muscle Car or by using her gun on enemies while he is driving.
Alyx kneels over her father's dead body.

At the end of the game, her father Eli is killed by an Advisor before she and Gordon get into a chopper to go looking for Dr. While she and Gordon watch, helpless, pinned down onto the walls by the Advisors' psionic powers, Dog jumps through the roof and attacks the Advisor before it can do the same thing to Alyx and Gordon, severely injuring it causing both Advisors to flee.
Alyx cries over Eli's body as Gordon passes out and the credits roll. Her full reaction to that loss and its influence on the subsequent events is yet to be revealed. Future[ edit ] Ina video involving Gabe Newell and two interpreters discussing deafness and video games with a small audience of hearing-impaired people was posted on YouTube. In it Newell suggests that Alyx had a crush on a hearing-impaired Resistance member and that she taught Dog how to sign so she could practice and easily communicate with him.
Then this person went away from Alyx to fight the Combine someplace else, and Alyx and Dog started signing with each other when they wanted to communicate without making noise or without other people knowing.
This person would eventually come back in the next Half-Life gameas a new gameplay and Source engine feature aimed at providing better support for hearing-impaired players. Alyx has brown, short hair with streaks of red a reminiscence of her original fully red hair,  a headband and green eyes. She wears worn-out clothes, as most of the Half-Life 2 characters: She has black fingerless rappelling gloves and a tensor bandage around her right hand it is unknown if it is for the looks or if she was previously hurt.
She also wears a green belt where her gun and EMP Tool are attached; purple underwear can also be seen from behind. Around her neck is a little box-like jewel, made out of wood or metal, which apparently belonged to her motheraccording to the Vance family picture. A nevus can also be seen at the stem of her neck. At the beginning of Episode One, she gains a small scar above her right eyebrow, presumably inflicted at the end of Half-Life 2 and having been dug "out of the rubble".
During Episode Two, her jacket is damaged when the Hunter wounds her, also staining her undershirt with blood. She also "put together" the Shorepoint Scout Car with her father Eli, and helped Kleiner "resurrect" his teleport.
She is also very proficient with a pistol and in unarmed combat, single-handedly defeating the five Metrocops who almost catch Gordon during his escape at the start of Half-Life 2, and helps fight alongside Gordon briefly during the chapters Entanglement and Anticitizen One in Half-Life 2. In Episode One, Alyx accompanies Gordon for most of the game and demonstrates fighting skills previously unseen, using a shotgun and kicking and kneeing off Zombies when they get too close.
Eli kisses his daughter.
