When they first met, James Potter and Sirius Black didn't expect to be lifelong friends. They were just two boys sitting on the Hogwarts Express, shoved into the same compartment by some rowdy fifth years. Each of them kept to himself, and it wasn’t until James spotted Sirius’s broomstick advertisement booklet, tossed carelessly onto the seat, that the two of them began talking.
"What team?" James asked enthusiastically, pointing at the Quidditch players clutching world-class brooms on the cover.
Sirius snorted, glancing at the booklet and then to James. "Chudley Cannons, of course. I just went to see them, they were bloody amazing! You?"
James stared at Sirius, his eyes wide in amazement. "Same, my dad loves to take me to their matches! Gonna try out for the house team?"
Just like that, the two were friends.
When James joined Sirius at the Gryffindor table, they grinned

We haven't seen him in months.
It's kind of weird. First he comes at us, again and again and again for years on end, and now… nothing.
I don't like it.
It bothers me so much nowadays that I can't sleep. I have this strange feeling that if go to sleep, he's gonna reappear right over my head with an axe or something with a mad gleam in his eye. The day that happens, well, let's just say I'm gonna be in trouble. I might be fast, but I like to take my time getting out of bed.
I think I'm gonna ask Tails about it. He can usually track the guy down without too much trouble.
I sit up in bed and yell, "TAILS!"
"WHAT?" Tails yells back from the other room.
"COME HERE, I WANNA ASK YOU SOMETHING!"
Tails walks reluctantly into the room. We've had this sort of discussion before, where we literally spent hours arguing over who was gonna go to who, and he lost anyway. So now he just comes to me.

I just stand there, dumbfounded. Of all the things that are supposed to happen when you press the red button, like robot armies and deathtraps and the apocalypse, none of it happened. Hey, if a snowflake fell out of the sky and landed on my nose that would've been something. But no. The one time I get to press the red button, nothing happens.
So I stand there for a minute, tapping my foot and trying to decide which of the thingies on the panel to use next. I decide on a slider on the far left side and go to move it. All of a sudden there's a really loud cracking noise, like someone's just used a giant whip. The ground splits in half.
Between my feet, of course.
I jump back as the ground splits some more, and with a lot of loud crashing noises a massive, sun-blocking tower rises out of the ground in front of me. A dome closes over the control panel, as beyond that a giant for

He doesn't look too good. I wonder how long he's been lying there. A sort of sorrow grips me.
He could have been here, like this, the whole time I thought he was just laying low.
Suddenly I see myself like he is now, and I'm afraid. I don't want to think about what could happen to me if I need help but there's no one who wants to. In my world, everyone helps everyone else. That's how it works. But Eggman…he's the enemy. Nobody helps him and he doesn't help us…well, unless he absolutely has to.
My voice is small and tentative, and it surprises me.
He doesn't answer.
I don't know what to think right now. I move around the chair and bend down on one knee over him.
He doesn't look like he's been attacked or anything. I wonder what's going on.
I put a hand on his shoulder and shake him a little.

After about ten minutes or so Tails brings the plane down near the mega-fortress that has risen out of the earth. He just sits there and stares at it for a good minute. I try not to be annoyed by how slow we have to go in order for the plane to keep up.
"Wow," he gasps. "How did we not see this? This is the biggest fortress yet!"
"It was underground," I tell him. "I pressed…this button, and it just sort of appeared."
"Oh Sonic," says Tails, shaking his head, "how many times have I told you, don't press the big red button?"
"A lot," I mutter sheepishly. "But if I hadn't, I wouldn't have found Eggman!"
Tails looks at me in a way that suggests finding Eggman was the worst thing the button could have let me do.
"Anyway, let's get going," I say. "He could be in trouble, you know."
Tails doesn't really seem to care, but he follows me anyway.

GLaDOS is annoyed and bored. She needs a distraction.
It began as a casual means of distraction.
She was annoyed and she was bored, and really, who could blame her. Her mind was idle, and though she was not exactly human, she had been built and trained and put to work by them. So even though it was worse than pulling teeth to get her to admit it, which she never really did, she often ended up engaging in some human behaviour.
She was reluctant to do it. It was a waste of time, after all, a wasteful use of valuable processing power. On the other hand, though, that valuable processing power never got fully put to use. So if someone was going to waste it, it might as well be her.

My life was abso-bloody-lutely normal until it came along. Well, maybe for you, you’d see it differently. My life is far more disastrous and far more logical than yours. It is a complete and total mess, but it is normal for me. Normal for us. Normal for everyone except for you and it.
I led a quite normal life, thank you very much. I had a job, I had a family. I have everything I wanted. Then both of you came and took my life away from me.
You, a cruel scrap of metal. A piece of work. A proper maniac. You who have taken everything from me. You who inspired it to rip my soul from my body and shove it into a metal can leaving nothing but my dead body which I found terrifying. I hated both of you since. No. Hate is not enough to say what I really feel about you and it. Despise? Loathe? No. Those words aren't enough
