Haha, my catSo generally when I'm in my room, so is my kitten, because my mom is scared of her and my dogs want to eat her. But the dogs were put away and my mom wasn't home, so I opened my door and let Chell go do what she wanted.
Apparently "what she wanted" involved sitting at the top of the stairs, swishing her tail and staring down.
My mom came home, and she walked past the staircase, glanced up, then jumped and went, "--OH my goodness. It's a creature!"
And the kitten went, "--OMG. itz a hoomon! she yel. dnt no y she do tht. i run."
Honestly. xD Five terrifying pounds of fluff. And claws, and teeth, but those are irrelevant next to the fluff!!
Loathing You - Part 2The instruments paused, hovering over the Intelligence Dampening Sphere as he continued to scream. A low laugh echoed throughout the facility. "Poor little idiot. You don't have the slightest idea what's about to happen to you, do you? Can you even hazard a guess?"Loathing You - Part 24 years ago in Drama More Like This
His lack of response annoyed but didn't deter her. The instruments continued to hover. After a moment, when the core noticed they weren't moving closer and started to ask what was going on, they dove in and the screaming started all over again. If GLaDOS had had lips, she would have been smiling.
She should have done this a long time ago.
Unfortunately, it didn't take long for the procedure to begin, and the procedure required the core in question to be deactivated. GLaDOS waited until the pain of not abiding by protocol became almost unbearable, then switched him off via his remote signal. The stop of the shrill screaming, no matter how entertaining it had been, was almost as much as a relief as the stop of the pain.

"You are a horrible person. I'm serious, that's what it says. A horrible person."
The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device slammed against the wall all the way at the opposite side of the chamber, soliciting a loud, impromptu gasp from the speakers. Several panels quickly moved to catch it before it could fall into the acid pit below.
"So," the AI said, voice easily smoothing over as though she'd never been thrown off her guard, "I see all those years in stasis have not improved your intelligence levelwhich is far lower than average, in case you needed the reminder. Look. You may have finished this chamber, but you still have more to complete. A lot more to complete, in fact. So why don't you attempt to figure out a way to retrieve the portal device? Because I'm certainly not going to do it for you."
The only movement from the test subject was a slight shakin
Short, Sad Life Left - Part 5The elevator landed as Chell finished her cake. She heard it coming and looked up at it, hardly daring to believe that GLaDOS was actually going to let her go again.Short, Sad Life Left - Part 54 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"There," GLaDOS said, and was it Chell, or did she sound bitter? "I suppose you're going to leave now. And that's just fine with me. I hope never to see you again."
Chell stood up. "Thanks for everything, GLaDOS."
"Just go," the computer said. "Live out your short, sad life somewhere far away from here. Don't ever think about me or this facility again."
"Now who's being melodramatic?" Chell asked with a chuckle. GLaDOS's optic narrowed into a glare.
Turning around, Chell began heading for the elevator. When she was about halfway there, she paused and turned back to look at the AI.
"What are you doing?" GLaDOS asked. "I told you to leave. Now."
"I still have the Companion Cube," Chell said.
"Yes, you do. But I fail to see how that is relevant in any way, shape, or form."
Chell shrugged. "I don't know how do those

GLaDOS wasn't sure what she'd been expecting when she allowed the lunatic back inside her Enrichment Center after twenty years, but it certainly hadn't been this. The woman sat on her knees like an execution victim in front of the giant AI, her hands dangling in her lap and her eyes locked on the ground. Her clothes were not only filthy, like she hadn't changed them in days, but mismatched. She had paired a heavy winter coat with shorts and a tank top.
"I beg your pardon?" the AI asked with a snort, although that request coupled with her physical observations was causing her to worry. Hadn't Chell developed a pleasant life since her release from the Enrichment Center? The last time GLaDOS had performed a mandatory checkup, the human had been just fine. Happy, even. She had a droll but apparently fulfilling job as an insurance agent, and it was there that she had met her wife, who was equally droll but seemed to be just as fulfilling. They had adopted twin toddlers close to t
Drawing on the WallGLaDOS' deep frown grew deeper as she walked through the test chambers, as much as she didn't want to walk through the destruction that little moron had caused to her facility, protocols required her to (there weren't exactly humans left alive to maintain and repair the facility), and after all the work she had done to get rid of the flora and fauna now she had to deal with test chambers crushed together haphazardly. That girl had said something about what a horrendous job the moron had done in "building" test chambers; that was one of the few times GLaDOS smiled at something she said. Or she would have, if she wasn't a potato at the time.Drawing on the Wall4 years ago in Drama More Like This
She had reactivated several "failed" cores to help rebuild the facility (as much as she hated to admit it, she couldn't get the place up and running by herself), she could feel them running around in their respective chambers. Carrying out rubble, trying to re-attach wires while simultaneously avoiding falling into the "bottomless" pits that w

The doctors didn't know why Chell was sick, why her skeleton was deteriorating at an accelerated rate, but she herself knew perfectly well: it was the repulsion gel, the goddamned repulsion gel. The prerecorded voice had warned her not to get covered in itof course, that was about five minutes too late. She'd managed to wash it off in a stream of water several chambers later, but by then it had already done its damage.
Now, six months later, she was dying. She knew that, and she knew that she didn't have very much time left. What a strange twist of fate it was that she'd survived GLaDOS's testing been released, evenonly to have it kill her when she was safely away from all things Aperture.
Well, that wasn't entirely true. While she had burned the official Aperture clothing she was wearing when GLaDOS let her go, Chell had kept the Companion Cube. She didn't know why, but for some reason, it still comforted her. So even in this hospital room at what she knew

She didn't have time to deal with the little idiot right now, even if his help might be required later. His bare feet slapped against the ground as he tried to catch up with her.

"The core transfer receptacle," she explained, not bothering to hide her impatience. "We need to find a temporary replacement for me. One who isn't corrupt, and one who will be able to handle the critical functions of my facility. There's only one core we can use."
"Therethere are cores like that?" The puzzlement in his voice was evident. "Or one core, rather? But, but I thought, I thought that after none of us helped, that they gave up because nothing was working"
"You thought wrong," GLaDOS snapped. "As usual. There is one, and it isn't corrupt, just annoying. It n
