Due Date Ch.4 EdWinEd had a face splitting smile on his face when going into work the next morning, earning shocked stares from almost everyone there. The usual face he had on was one of reluctance, and it was an honest expression, he’d much rather be surrounded by the hills of Resembool, than the tall buildings and ongoing traffic of Central. But today was different, he had just found out that he was soon going to be a father, and it felt like there was nothing that could get in the way of him right now. It was like his usual feeling, but much, much stronger.Due Date Ch.4 EdWin3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Running throughout his childhood forest, he noticed the sun had sunk over the horizon completely, leaving him running through the dark aimlessly. There was nothing that was going to stop him, not even the fact that he was practically blind at the moment, the only thing he could think about was Winry and the baby.

Too tired to sit up and comfort the sphere at the foot of my bed, I reached my arm towards him and rested it on his casing. The AI was shivering violently.
"Calm down, Wheatley. It's just-" I paused to consider the loud cracking noises, "It's just thunder."
Wheatley's shivering ceased. His optic widened, brightening the room slightly. I loved it when it did that.
"Thunder...?" He sighed. I smiled in the darkness, getting drowsier.
"Yeah. I'm right here. I'm not leaving..." I muttered, beginning to trail off. My hand was slipping down Wheatley's side, but he rolled gently towards me to support it.
His efforts were in vain, because as soon as I fell back asleep, my arm instinctively withdrew itself from the sphere's cold metal casing.
I was awake enough, though, to hear Wheatley whisper a few last words

Hubb set Quent back down on the blankets. He hadn't stirred once, throughout all the drama.

Tsume rolled his eyes as they walked up to the others. He looked back at Asante, who was rubbing the bite mark on her neck and wincing.
Asante was still limping pretty badly, but she winked at him all the same.
Tsume smirked back at her and then rolled his eyes as he overheard Toboe telling some story to the cubs.

It was a busy day in Fortuna Academy as the whole island had students and teachers going back and forth around the facilities, and the first day of class started. The academy had plenty of new students this year, and one of them had an unusual early start to check the academy.
All the girls in the 1st floor of the Academy building had their eyes drawn to said new academy student with long flowing silver hair, blue eyes and black wings sprouting from his back. Most of them were fawning and swooning over the new student, who seemed slightly annoyed at that. "By whatever god there is...shut the hell up!" Ryuuga screamed inside of his head.

Cave pulled his finger from the button of his intercom and smiled.
He loved being in control, to be able to make people come and go at his every whim.
He especially liked to do this to Caroline.
Not to humiliate her, he had others for that, just because it was one of the few times he could control her.
Most of the time she controlled him, his mind mostly.
But he was getting control over her more and more.
As Caroline walked in the office she looked at him with adoration, he loved that too.
Oh yes, he was the man!
Caroline looked at the self-satisfied, stuck-up, smug face of her boss and made an involuntary smirk, totally misinterpreted by Cave.
He was so stupid, she could hardly take it.
There used to be a time she really liked him.
She was in love with science, a thing that had drawn him to her in the first place.
And she was in love with this man as well.
He stood for everything she loved: science, progress, excitement.

Chell lifted the cube with her portal-device and placed it on the big red button.
With a hiss the door opened and the way to the elevator was free.
Another day, another endless series of test chambers.
She was sick of them.
It bothered her that she had no choice but solving them.
Or did she?
In her first days of testing Chell already tried to put a camera or two on the button but that didn't trigger anything.
Apparently it was too light.
She tried putting more on the button but with the same results.
So she figured the cubes had a specific weight.
One of the things she also found out was that some objects were not fizzled in the emancipation grid.
Like common stones.
And even though they were not easy to find, the state of the facility allowed her to find some nevertheless and she always took them with her.
She had a plan.

Yes, you know it was bound to come eventually. After all, he is a fan girl favorite. Anyway, I have a LOT to say about him, simply because he is the most textured and human (yes, even more then Chell) character in the game. Where to start? Well, as I played throughout the game I grew quite attached to him (putting myself into the position that during the testing I hadn't had any kind interaction, at all) and came to consider him as a comrade and companion during the grueling trial of escaping. Even so, some of the things he says throughout this first part do reveal that he has a sort of mild contempt and resentment for humans and is a bit selfish. Despite this, his transformation after the core transfer was so sudden and complete that even his mirth starts morphing into sadistic fit of laughter, followed soon after by vengeful transference of Glados into a potato. The fact that he reaches this boiling point after called a moron seems to indicate that he has some sort of infe

Kiba was still following the scent of the tainted Lunar Flowers.
She would've complained long ago, but now even she could smell them.
They weren't far; they also weren't far from where Lowell's scent had gone

This was his big moment, his big day.

That beard, that awful beard.
You'd think in a facility as big as Aperture, a facility that made weapons no less, there would be one lousy razor to be found.

The cleaning robot calmly strolled through the test chambers.
Picking up pieces of debris, shattered turrets and bullet shells he made his monthly round to make sure the chambers would be in tip top shape to continue the testing and not tipping the testers off.
This required extra care to make sure all the corpses were removed.
There were hardly ever dead testers lying around on the floors, and if they were, for example, shot by a turret, the bullet-riddled bodies were removed right away.
It had to be done fast because the testers were following each other up in rapid pace these days.
Sometimes there were hardly five chambers between them.

The tester looked at the scientist, shrugged and downed the content of the vial in one sip.

It took exactly ten minutes before the tester started to feel nausea.
His feet started to tingle and his insides to itch, which meant that the stuff was working, it was rewriting his DNA.
