assets, kidnapping scientists, seizing facilities, and threatening to bombing Black Mesa assets among other things. Counter-Terrorists are set to thwart terrorist's plan, business as usual. The Counter-Terrorists eventually won, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero allowing the research that leads to Black Mesa Incident to happen]].



World War Two starts, and this is where things get freaky. The Wehrmacht and Allies of Day of Defeat discover top-secret information, leading to the creation of RED and BLU of Team Fortress 1 & 2. RED and BLU form Black Mesa and Aperture Science, respectively. Meanwhile, Terrorists and their Counter-Terrorist rivals are competing around the globe in Counter-Strike. Gordon initiates the resonance cascade and the 7-hour War. Aperture Science captures headcrabs and studies their zombifying qualities and accidentally releases it into the water supply of City 12. The Combine avoid City 12 and observe from afar for scientific purposes.

* That would mean TVTropes is an adjunct of the Combine, even if an unknowing one.

[[WMG:The advisors we see aren't acctually the real advisors]]
That or they aren't the acctual original combine. So either they're greyish skin is a sort of protective suit and the acctual organism is inside, tender and easialy damaged despite protective fluid. This is probably due to the fact that as they conquered the galaxies they became more and more reliant on technology and thus lazyier and less able to cope, before they retreated to their suits using their phsyic powers to keep themselves floating off the ground and safe.
* Or the second one, the advisor suits look alot like synth materials. Plus their names "advisors" ,they're probably a race that the origional combine enslaved or alied themselves with them volentarily. Then they got dumped with running newly conqured worlds that aren't considered important and the administration of the combine empire.

[[WMG:Alyx Vance died during the Black Mesa incident, the “Alyxâ€� we know and love is Eli’s replacement]]
Eli Vance’s daughter Alyx died with her mother in Black Mesa, killed by a Bullsquid. Eli eventually took in one of the many orphans left by the Seven Hour War (one who remained Eli of his deceased daughter) and raised her as his late daughter Alyx.
While Eli came to genuinely to care for his adopted daughter he could never bring himself to tell “Alyxâ€� the truth.
* Eli eventually did love “Alyxâ€� as a daughter, for who she was and not who she was supposed to replace [[spoiler: enough to die for her]].
Eli Vance’s daughter Alyx died with her mother in Black Mesa, but Eli Vance built an advanced android to replace his daughter.
* Which explains a previous theory regarding Alyx’s MadeOfIron tendencies. Alyx isn’t wearing Unobtainium, she is made of Unobtainium.

[[WMG:The Vortigaunts are are really annoyed by Gordon]]



* I'm not sure how much of the change in the appearance of the Vortiguants is due to changes in graphics as opposed to in-universe events, but their seemingly more impressive combat abilities are probably a combination of fighting someone other than a one man army, and no longer being under the control of an oppressive overlord. The Nihalanth didn't seem like the type to let a slave race develope its abilities to the fullest.

** That’s what the Combine wants you to think!
** Seeing as Breen's whole suppression field speech revolves around "instict" I imagine the device also somehow chemicaly castrates the populace. Stopping certain proteins from forming in the brain perhaps?

Breen set up the entire incident, either because the Combine had already contacted him and promised to appoint him the head administrator of humanity, or because EvilutionaryBiologist he believed the resulting struggle would strengthen mankind]].

* The ability to [[GroundhogDayLoop groundhog]] your way to inevitable success would be ''the most awesomest superpower'', if it didn't come at [[BlessedWithSuck a terrible cost]]. You see, because [[YouCantFightFate Gordon is an instrument of Fate]], he can only ever do what Fate requires him to do. Any attempt to escape the road set ahead him and live happily ever after in some distant place not full of Combine, full of zombies, on fire, or ''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs full of Combine zombies on fire'' is brutally stymied by the dreaded InsurmountableWaistHeightFence, BottomlessPits, [[SuperDrowningSkills Deadly Water]] (or deadly water''fauna'') or [[NonStandardGameOver a cold, black screen informing Gordon that he has failed]].
