About

Halflife: Full Life Consequences is a short fan fiction written by Fanfiction.net author squirrelking, featuring the protagonist character of Half-Life videogame franchise. The poorly written prose was subsequently introduced to a broader audience through YouTuber Djy1991’s Garry’s Mod adaptation.

Origin

Halflife: Full Life Consequences was originally submitted to the fanfic community Fanfiction.net by user squirrelking on May 18th, 2006. Apart from Full-Life Consequences, Squirrelking[2] has written numerous other fanfictions like Metal Gear Solid: Fight of Metal Gears, Halo: Halos in Space, and Final Fantasy VII: Story of Rain Strife. A self-claimed ESL (English-as-second-language) speaker, Squirrelking’s works have been characterized by their abundance of grammatical and spelling errors.


John Freeman who was Gordon Freemans brother was one day in an office typing on a computer. He got an email from his brother that said that aliens and monsters were attacking his place and aksed him for help so he went.



John Freeman ramped off the building and did a backflip and landed. He kept driving down the road and made sure there was no zombies around because he ddint have weapon.

The contrysides were nice and the plants were singing and the birds and the sun was almost down from the top of the sky. the mood was set for John Freemans quest to help his brother where he was. John Freeman looked around the countrysides and said “its a good day to do what has to be done by me and help my brother to defeat the enemys”.

John Freeman was late so he had to drive really fast. A cop car was hiden near by so when John Freeman went by the cops came and wanted to give him a ticket. Here John Freeman saw the first monster because the cop was posessed and had headcrabs.

“I cant give you my lisense officer” John Freeman said

“Why not?” said the headcrab oficer back to John Freeman.

“Because you are headcrab zombie” so John Freeman shot the oficer in the head and drove off thinking “my brother is in trouble there” and went faster.

John Freeman had to go faster like the speed of sound and got there fast because Gordon needed him where he was. John Freeman looked at road signs and saw “Ravenholm” with someons writing under it saying “u shudnt come here” so John Freeman almost turned around but heard screaming like Gordon so he went faster again.

John Freeman drove in and did another flip n jumped off his motorbike and the motor bike took out some headcrab zombies infront of John Freeman. John Freeman smiled and walked fast. John Freeman then looked on the ground and found wepon so he pickd it up and fired fast at zombie goasts in front of a house.

John Freeman said “Zombie goasts leave this place” and the zombie goasts said “but this is our house” and John Freeman felt sorry for them becaus they couldnt live there anymore because they were zombie goasts so he blew up the house and killed the zombie goasts so they were at piece.

Then John Freeman herd another scream from his brother so he kept walking really faster to get where he was. Ravenholdm was nothing like the countrysides there was no birds singing and the pants were dead and teh dirt was messy and bloody from headcrabs.

When John Freeman got to where the screaming was started from he found his brother Gorden Freeman fightin the final bosss and Gordon said “John Freeman! Over here!” so John Freeman went there to where Gordon Freeman was fighting. John Freeman fired his bullet from teh gun really fast and the bullets went and shot the final boss in the eyes and the final boss couldnt see.

Gordon Freeman said “its time to end this ones and for all!” and punched the final boss in the face and the final boss fell. John Freeman said “thanks i could help, bro” and Gordon Freeman said “you should come here earlier next time” and they laughed.

The laughed overed quickly though because John Freeman yelled “LOOK OUT BRO!” and pointed up to the top of the sky. Gordon Freeman looked up and said “NOO! John Freeman run out of here fast as you can!” and John Freeman walked real fast out.

John Freeman loked back and saw Gordon get steppd on by the next boss and he was mad and angry.

“I’ll get you back evil boss!” John Freeman yelled at the top of lungs.

to be continued..?


On the same day Half-Life: Full Life Consequences[1] was submitted to Fanfiction.net, YTMND user blind51de posted a dramatic reading of the original text.[3] The site featuring a screenshot of the manuscript and a narration was well-received by the community, generating more than 130,000 views as of May 2012.

Spread

Throughout early 2007, a handful of flash-based adaptations of the story were submitted to Halflife2.net forum[5] and Newgrounds[6][7][8] by user Vegeta897. On February 24th, 2007, another flash rendition was posted on Newgrounds by user Snesman64[9].



Garry’s Mod Adaptation

Eventually on January 23rd, 2008, YouTuber Djy1991[4] would bring the fan fiction and blind51de’s dramatic narration to another stage of life through his Garry’s Mod machinima adaptation (shown left). In the following month of February 2008, the second story of the series titled Full Life Consequences 2: WhatHasTobeDone (shown right) was also adapted by Djy1991 as a Garry’s Mod short film featuring the voice of another narrator, Cannon590A.



After the viral rise of YouTuber Djy1991’s Garry’s Mod edition, the notorious fan fiction continued to spread across other familiar territories such as 4chan, as well as gaming news sites like Joystiq[10], Gamefront[11] and WeGame[12] among others.

Sequels

In February 2009, Squirrelking wrote the third chapter in his Full-Life Consequences series titled “Halflife: Hero Beggining” in fulfilling the fans’ requests. In March, YouTuber Djy1991 followed up with a Garry’s Mod adaptation of the sequel, featuring a dramatic reading narrated by Dwarfio. Despite the popularity of the original copy, some speculated that the sequel went largely underexposed due to the absence of “Full Life Consequences” in the title.



The conclusion of Squirrelking’s saga titled Halflife: Fulllife Consequences: Free Man was posted two months later in April 2008, generating nearly as much buzz and feedback as his original work did. Once again, YouTuber Djy1991 completed and uploaded a 20-minute long Garry’s Mod adaptation of the third installment featuring the voice of LordTeisel, as well as a music video of Renard’s John Freeman remix (shown below).



Notable Examples

There are numerous other interpretations of the notorious story, including live-action re-enactments and machinima-based short films.



YouTube Poop Remixes

Some of the most memorable lines from the series were parodied in forms of images, YouTube Poop remixes and other music video adaptations, the most notable instance of remix being “Furries in a Blender” uploaded by FurAffinity user Renard_V on October 8th, 2008.



“Wepon”

After the third installment Free Man was released, additional parody videos and images quickly surfaced on YouTube, many of which referencing the misspelled pronunciation of “wepon” from Renard’s remix.
