"You don't need one."
The little blue core looked up to the big machine in front of him.
Her yellow bright eye was shifting as if she was constantly nervous.
"No, of course I don't, naturally, I knew that." he stuttered.
"And I wouldn't ask for one, but "
GLaDOS looked at him bored.
"Then don't, it's not your job to ask for a name. You are just a core, you don't need a name. Besides, you have a serial number."
"Yes, I do, and it's a beautiful one! Obviously it's a very nice serial number. Love it, absolutely love it" the little core hasted to say. He looked around in the hope nobody would see. The only one looking was another core and that one didn't seem to care.
"And not that I am complaining, of course not, I'd never. It's just "
GLaDOS sighed. "Didn't we drop this Issue?" Ice oozed from her voice.
"Yes, we did actually, and I am not bringing it back up "
A big metal claw dropped from the ceiling and grabbed the core.
"No, you're not!" GLaDOS confirmed. "You

"Good morning love."
GLaDOS turned her head towards the door where Doug stepped in.
"Good morning Sir." she replied.
"Ready for another day of fun-filled science?
Doug climbed the steps to the walkway that led to GLaDOS and patted the AI on the head.
GLaDOS didn't like to be touched, as she repeatedly told the scientists, but she had kind of a soft spot for Doug.
Doug has always been friendly to her.
What's more, he was the only one that seemed to realize her learning capacity.
True, he kept asking her to keep it down a bit, but he ASKED, never ordered.
All the other scientists saw her as an object; Doug treated her like a person.
Perhaps that's why he was the only one that could calm her down when things got out of hand, like the time they wanted to dampen her intelligence.
She liked Doug.
This day he seemed quite happy.
He whistled and hummed while he was preparing her for the tests she would run today.
Perhaps it was the anti-schizophrenics she told him to t

GLaDOS wasn't happy.
This wasn't a strange feeling for her, GLaDOS was rarely happy, but at the moment she was particularly unhappy.
It wasn't because she was left in the hands of the lunatic she hated very much.
It wasn't because her facility was put in the hands of the moron she hated even more.
It even wasn't because she had been put into a potato, although she hated it no end.
Something nagged at her, was eating her up.
Actually that was literally.
She had been pecked at by a bird that wanted to eat her and also liked to damage her optical.
The Mute lunatic had saved her from that one, although she needed a lot of persuasion.
But now she felt like she was been eaten from the inside.
Again, not as a figure of speech, she felt something inside the potato munching around.
That led her to one frightening conclusion:
She had worms.
That moron that picked this potato didn't bother to search for a healthy potato but took the first he saw no doubt.
And it was filled with worms.

The first thing GLaDOS noticed when she awakened from her involuntary sleep was the new sphere on her body.
"Oh, no, not another one." she sighed.
Just the idea that those humans turned her off without asking permission and installed tings without consultation made her furious.
Admitted, she DID kill a couple of dozen scientists with deathly neurotoxin, but still, it was rude to modify her body without permission.
"Oh, you're awake."
GLaDOS glanced at the small core and decided not to answer.
"I mean, obviously you're awake, I'm part of you now and I'm awake so you must be awake."
"Right?" he added nervously.
"Because I'm not sure, I could be mistaken, I'm obviously younger than you so "
The blue-eyed core rambled on and on, not just for that moment but the next few days.
GLaDOS tried to ignore him and keep her attention to her work, but somehow she couldn't block out the core.
It was annoying.
The core was annoying.
Also: his ideas were bad, very bad, but he kept spew
