Wheatley's apology.WARNING: READ DESCRIPTION!!!Wheatley's apology.4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
I used to rule her world...
Panels would rise when I gave the word...
Now in my orbit I weep alone,
Remember tests I used to own.
I was told I would die,
Instead I helped my friend survive.
I Listened as turrets would sing,
"Now that old queen is dead! Long live the king!"
Once I held the facilities,
Next the walls were moved by me.
And I discovered that my chamber stands,
Upon pillars in fault, in miles of land...
I hear that cube of my Chells a ringing.
Opera turrets, all choirs are singing.
Beam my portal, my brilliant dear.
My little Chelly's in a foreign field,
For some reason I can't explain
Once we won, there was never,
Ever an honest word...
And that was when I ruled her world.
She was the livid and wild wind,
Blew down the doors to let me in.
Shattered panels and the sound of bombs...
My Chell couldn't believe what I'd become.
Now all of my enemies crave,
For my endless drift in space.
Just an epic on some metal strings...

There she is
Hanging from the ceiling.
Her figure seemed almost
Like a human woman
But her metal white
Outer shell made it obvious
That she was not.
Was planted firmly
On the ceiling.
On it was her name,
She started with a lecture
On how much she hated me.
She began releasing a neurotoxin.
It was a sickly green gas
That hissed as it was released
Like an angry puff adder
Ready to strike.
It made me gag and gasp
As it entered my lungs.
I could feel it beginning
To shut down my organs.
I had to think fast,
And so I did.
Piece by piece
I took pieces off her
And threw them
Into the incinerator.
She was hard to get to
Hanging there on the ceiling,
But with my trusty portal device
It quickly became easier.
The gas was still coming.
I had no idea how long
I had left to live.
I was weak.
She was still strong,
Though weaker than before.
A rocket was fired
From the turret
I had triggered.
Out of the rocket's way.
It flew through
It hit her.

"So, the lunatic is dead and gone. Well, not yet maybe. At least she is not here, and killing her is none of my business anymore. This is a relief for everyone.
I'd say we have sung enough. I don't know what gets me to sing every time she tries to destroy the facility. It must be some old Aperture processor I'll burn it down as soon as I locate it.
Good performance, by the way. But, honestly, tell me; did your little orchestra really have to arrange such a majestic farewell for her? Oh, no no no, you cannot say it was my idea. Itcame from some glitched part of the system. Apparently, that moron made a perfect mess out of the piece of perfection my chassis is. Well, was.
Also, as a turret, you are not authorized to tell lies about me. I can't even imagine feeling admiration for a shameless murderer. I'd like to know what on earth made you sing those lines don't start telling me I am wrong, I heard you, and my translation system cannot fai

What's this? There's broken panels in the air.
What's this? I can't believe my eyes, I must be dreaming,
Wake up, GLaD, this isn't fair.
What's this? What's this? Something's just not right
What's this? Just look at the dreadful sight
What's this? The tests are filled with great destruction
Everybody seems so dead
Why not maintain the facility instead?
What is this?
There's Wheatley throwing bombs around, trying to kill Chell
He's busy complaining to her about the time he fell
He's being such a moron
Oh, I can't believe my eyes!
And in my battery I feel the cold that I'm about to die.
Oh look! What's this? There's death traps everywhere.
Brilliant! Well, no wonder it's a lair.
Turrets! They're scanning for the kill that they desire
Defective... They will catch on fire.
What's this, in here? He's made a turret-cube
How queer. And who would ever think?
And why? I was sure the paradox would work,

The baker got incinerated and then there's seven.
Seven personality cores playing hide-and-seek.
The mute one was not seen again and then there's six.
Six personality cores looking for something.
One (curiously and accidently) activated the MASHY-SPIKE-PLATE,
Now there's five.
Five personality cores took a relaxation test.
One just can't take it easy and then there's four.
Four personality cores compare their IQ.
Since one was too smart for comfort, the number became three.
Three personality cores went on an adventure.
One trip on an (aperture science) explosive and then there's two.
Two personality cores looked at the stars and wish.
One core got his wish and then there's one.
One personality core, all alone
with a help of a human friend, took control of the facility
and got corrupted himself.
And then will there be none...?

"How could you do that GLaDOS? What were you thinking?"
"It was the right thing to do sir. I am just following my programming."
"Could you follow it less the next time? Geez GLaDOS, we don't need this."
GLaDOS looked at the red-faced man pacing back and forwards through her room and felt sad.
All she ever tried to do was please everyone but somehow she kept messing up.
His mouth was forming an ugly downward curve, telling her he was not pleased with her at all.
"I'm so sorry Doug."
Doug stopped his pacing and looked GLaDOS directly in her yellow optic.
"You're sorry? YOU'RE sorry? What about me eh? What do I have to say to my boss? Another failed test, time and money wasted. I could loose my job GLaDOS!"
Doug started pacing again.

He had an idea.
That didn't happen very often and mostly they were bad, but he had an Idea nonetheless.
Wheatley had been abandoned for decades and frankly, he got sick of it.
Space, as his companion told him many many times, was an interesting place.
Circling around on the same place made it less interesting than travelling through it, but still, it got him amused for a while.
No he was bored and wanted to get out, back to earth.
He wanted to get home
It took him a long time to determine what home was.
Was it earth in general?
Or was it Aperture?
He decided that the saying "home is where the heart lies" was true so his home did lie in Aperture.
Because one thing was for sure, his heart was with everybody there: GLaDOS, Chell, his heart only thought about them.
In addition, how to kill them.
All this time his hate for those two grew and grew.
They shot him in space, and for what?
He just tried to help Chell, tried to make GLaDOS understand how cruel she was, but

Black's mind began rushing, working at a mile a minute. What were they doing together? Was it just a friendly ride? No, White would have been too focused on the Plasma grunts to just hop on a ferris wheel with a mysterious guy. He squinted, trying to see what was going on in the car. White didn't look like she was being threatened, just like she was irritated at him. N, as always, was staring at her, as if waiting for her to calm down. Slowly, his lips moved, and Black saw White's body freeze up.
Black sprinted over towards the ferris wheel operator, cutting through the line and making several people yell at him. He tugged on the man's uniform, pointing to the car White and N were in. "My friend is up there, and she might be in trouble." He stated.
The operator blinked, then shrugged. "Yeah, so what?" he asked indifferently.
Black clenched his fist, furrowing his brow. "Can you do something about it? Like, speed the ferris wheel up? I don't know if you heard me the first time, b

Curiosity was everything her name implied- curious. On top of her most dominant trait, she was incredibly perceptive and creative, as well as energized and caring. She was like a light among the darkness of the rest of the cores, since she managed to out shine all of them easily with her likable personality and kind smile. But out of all these things, her good traits, her bad traits her personality and looks, Curiosity found one thing about herself that made no sense after so many years as nothing more than an AI; she was in love.
She always figured love was one of those odd things- something that happened in those books she always read, but never real life. It was an adventure that Rick would have went on, maybe something that Anger would growl at the mention and Morality would smile gently at. She knew even Fact and Intelligence wouldn't know, and found out Wheatley couldn't answer the question without tripping over his own two feet. That left the one person she felt weir
Born from the ashesPandemonium filled the Ecruteak tower as the head priest gave commands to the lower orders. "Catch the traitors!" Younger priests and priestesses ran to confront the two who were running from the tower. A boy and a girl ran from the priests as Pokémon cries filled the air. The girl stumbled over her kimono while the boy struggled with the nine rods they had stolen. "C'mon! We're nearly there!" He yelled. She tripped again and he cursed. He took off ahead and she ran after him. They had nearly reached the exit of the tower when the boy turned around and cursed once more. The head priest and her Pokémon were gaining on them. He grabbed the girl's hand and pushed her back just as the head priest's meganium fired two vines to catch them. She fell back into the meganium's vines and the boy kept on running.Born from the ashes3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Curiosity blinked her orange eyes in a confused and bleary manner, having been drifting off from her comfortable position resting against Space, her head against his shoulder.
"What?" she asked, looking up at him with a tired expression on her face. She dragged the hand which wasn't linked with Space's across her eyes to try and combat the fatigue she was experiencing. Space glanced at her, noticing her lack of enthusiasm and seemed to notice she was tired, causing him to frown, suddenly apologetic.
"Sorry" he said quietly. "Got excited about space. We can go inside now"
Curiosity shook her head abruptly, sitting up a little straighter. How could she even think of falling asleep right now? Sure, it had been a long and tiring day, but she was finally reunited with Space. She couldn't just go inside because she was getting tired. She had to stay here an

Black unzipped his backpack, grumbling to himself as he filtered through his clothes and supplies. He took a hold of his toothbrush as soon as it reared its head in the mess, and soon located his toothpaste, as well. With an irritated glare towards the bedroom, he stood and made his way to the sink.
Black's infuriated murmurs continued as he flipped on the faucet in the kitchen of the hotel room. White had the right to be angry at him, but she didn't have the right to hole herself up in the bathroom for two hours. Black had been okay with her self-isolation at first, but now it was getting ridiculous. He had begged and pleaded with her to come out, at least long enough for him to get a shower, but she refused to even speak to him.
"Prissy little-" the rest of Black's sentence became inaudible as he shoved his toothbrush into his mouth, scrubbing furiously. He just couldn't figure her out. Her moods shifted so quickly, and each time they did, it was like a slap in the face to Bla

True to his word, Black didn't let White set a foot on the ground until they entered Nimbasa City. Even though his aching legs protested under the extra weight of his partner, he had trekked on.
Black carefully set his friend down on the pavement, stretching his arms above his head as if it was nothing. But, in reality, he was sore all over. Carrying White all the way down the route had appeared to be a brave, strong, and basically badass move at the time. Now, though, he was paying for it.
White sighed, removing her cap from her head and brushing the sand off of it. "You didn't have to pick me up, you know. I could've beaten that wuss in a second." She claimed, tilting her chin up in defiance.
Black gave his signature nonchalant shrug in return. "That's what you said about the rich boy. And the trainer before that. And the trainer before that. And-"

Black blushed in embarrassment, rubbing the back of his neck sheepishly. "Er, yeah. That's what I meant." he lied.
White smiled at his behavior, finishing the bandage on his arm and moving on to his face. She carefully fingered the bruise around his eye, and he flinched back, hissing in pain. "What did you do while I was on the Ferris wheel? That security guard nearly beat you to a pulp when he saw yo

Test Of Humanity 1Deep within the bowels of the Aperture Science facilities, the robotic entity known simply as Glados watched with mild interest on the various monitors her current test subjects' latest project. It was a fairly straightforward experiment. She would have Atlas and P-Body solve a simple puzzle, then, move to another room that looked almost identical to the previous one yet had very subtle changes to them. The sentient machine wanted to see if the two robots could adapt to small changes in their environment and learn new ways to solve essentially the same puzzle.Test Of Humanity 15 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Unfortunately, the simplicity of such a test (to her at least) was that it got boring after a while. Not that it was predictable. It wasn't since how fast the two adapted had a surprising amount of variation to Glados's amusement. Sometimes Atlas and P-Body solved their tests with relative ease. Other times, such as with room they were currently in, it took them accidentally dismembering themselves several times before finally re

"Black? Black! Snap out of it!"
"Don't leave me!!" Black screamed, bolting up into a sitting position and swinging his hand out.
There was a yelp and White tumbled back off of the couch, skidding across the floor. Black blinked several times, trying to decipher his situation. He was back in the hotel room, still laying on the couch he had fallen to sleep on.
"God dammit, Black! Did you really have to go and clock me like that?" White mumbled, rubbing the ugly welt that was now appearing on her pale cheek.
Black took several deep breaths, looking her up and down. Her hair was let down in a scraggly mess, and all she wore was her usual white tank top and a pair of athletic shorts. Her sleeping attire. His eyes darted about the room, searching to see if a certain green-haired bastard was about.
When there was no sign of him, the trainer began to settle down. However, he found himself grasping onto the couch tightly, as if it was the one thing that anchored him to the real world. "W

A loud yawn was the next sound that greeted Black's ears, and before he could sit up to stop what was about to come, White gave a surprised yelp.
The backside of a hand hit his cheek hard, causing his eyes to fly open. He bit back a curse, sitting up quickly, and was greeted with a pillow to the face that knocked him off of the bed. Black hit the back of his head on the wall before he tumbled to the floor, in a tangled heap of sheets and pillow feathers.
Rubbing the bump that was starting to rise underneath his messy hair, Black slowly lifted his head, only to have another pillow thrown at it. The trainer did a hurried roll and sprang up again, trying to find his assailant.
White had positioned herself on the other side of the bed, hiding all of her face except for her anxious and confused crystal eyes. Black gave her an irritated look, and her eyes narrowed. This time, a balled up blanket came hurtling at him, and it nailed him in the face, sending him into the wall again.

'Solé's wounds... They... I'm not sure if they'll...heal correctly.'
It felt like hell when I thought back of that. I caught myself looking at Solé again. Did I have feelings for her? Real feelings? Did I...love someone I met less than 24 hours ago? I lied back down again, and soon got up. I made myself stop looking at Solé, and closed the door, without looking back.

1. Completed Stories.
2. Discontinued Stories.
3. Every Pokeumans protagonist ever created, ordered by species. This is the majority of the list - it's to help people see which Pokemon are over/under used in this group, and if you use ctrl + F, you can find Pokeumans stories which feature, say, Charmander.
It shows the species of a given Pokemon, then the Pokedex number(the number after the #). The number in brackets next to the listing shows how many protagonists are this Pokemon species.
The listed Pokemon species are all non-legendaries, so if you've done a story with an Entei, I'm sorry but I won't put it here (since it's breaking the rules), unless you managed to get permission from Brandon somehow.
And it will be forever a Work In Progress, for as long as the group's alive.
