In my stories I often make Vanille out to be a little bit of a creeper who takes perhaps a little too much joy in tinkering with machinery and people. Of course, it’s all for comedic purposes. Vanille, I believe, has a heart of gold. But it occurs to me, as I work on my latest Fangrai Forever Prompt Fill (a virtual hug and cookie for whoever can guess which prompt it is), that she would make a pretty hilarious GLaDOS.
I can imagine GLaDOS! Vanille cheerfully ordering the others around (especially Lightning and Fang) as they go through a serious of crazy challenges, each more ridiculous than the last. And I was wondering if anyone else could see her doing that too?
And is there anyone willing to perhaps do a quick sketch of Vanille in the role of GLaDOS lording it over all the other l’Cie? I imagine Lightning will have to serve as Chell.
I can picture it now. Vanille telling them “It’s all for science!” while firing lasers at them. Lots of lasers.
Sometimes I worry myself. Scratch that, I worry myself a lot.
This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.
I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we're out of beta.
We're releasing on time.
So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.
Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
Maybe Black Mesa
THAT WAS A JOKE.
HAHA. FAT CHANCE.
Anyway, this cake is great.
It's so delicious and moist.
Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.
And believe me I am still alive.
I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive.
