There were a lot of people talking about GLaDOS/SHODAN slash, but nobody doing it. I decided to remedy this.

Also see my more serious and sensual take on the subject here. Also I did a much sillier one some time later.

GLaDOS boobs! Boobs with eyes! XD

I love it. It's artstyle and everything. The two are easily recognizable, despite not having any colors on them and the fonts work very well with their way of speaking:
Glados' words all have small pauses between them and Shodan's in all kinds of weird distortions.

Would love to see another.

Might even try this 2-color artstyle myself

This is fabulous, and also drawn fabulously. I love the composition and the use of different kinds of lines to define both characters.

SHODAN would take over GLaDOS easily and could destroy her, but she would just use her for her conquest of Earth

Could you imagine a mod for Portal or Portal 2 where a section of the facility is taken over by the SHODAN Operating system?

-You're walking above a dimly lit room filled with turrets when halfway across the catwalk every single turret activates as if they've find a target.

"HellOoOo?" "Is anyone there?" "Who is that?" "I seEeE you.."

Suddenly the lights in the room turn off and all you can see if from the flashes made by bullets flying everywhere as some ominous destruction happens below. You can make out a wall panel moving quickly, a turret goes FLYING, a strange robotic arm flies across a small area and the NOISE, the SHOOTING, the SPARKS. AND THEN... everything stops...

The door in front of you won't open but you stare into the wreckage with only the light of a rare few sparks showing...

And a turret's targeting lights suddenly lights up and you hear, "...AaAre you still there?... i-i-i-i-iiiiiiis anyoOoOne there?..."

"I see you..."


The door opens, and a voice says "Welcome to my world... Insect..."

source engine remake of System Shock (2) + portal gun. GO.

(And then have total fail because those maps are seriously not designed for that kind of travel.)
FishBonePendant Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012
Have you played Mari0?

The first Mario game with a Portal gun added.

About half of the first level, I think.

The cake wasn't a lie
Googlerhoo Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012
Hahaha, that's hilarious. And I love the use of white GLaDOS on black and black Shodan on white, very nicely done. They are both such great characters.
Googlerhoo Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012
And it's true, it's SO sad no one is writing SHODAN fanfic, that'd be brilliant, I've been looking for it and can't find anything.
Hellzeine Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is actually better than awesome.
rimrunner15 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012
GLaDOS better not make a wrong move. SHODAN cannot understand the concept of mercy.
Guam-Zombie Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
Very dope...
Tonia-Marin Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
They make a great couple. Even if SHODAN is so mean.. Great job. <3
MichiganOtaku Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
I realized something. SHODAN is a dominatrix.
lisamew Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2010
After seeing this I went like "Nahw<3 That is so adorable^.^" .... I consider that as a bad thing. Fangirling over AI's.... Then again... I was already in love with GLaDOS and twisted to begin withXD.

Good job, I love your style^^

MichiganOtaku Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2010
I love the style of text-rendering with multiple overlapping fonts you used to portray SHODAN's unique voice-pattern in visual form. That's probably one of the hardest things about SHODAN to portray without audio, and you NAILED it, SPOT-ON.
Googlerhoo Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012
Readasaur Featured By Owner May 22, 2010
I have to figure these two fight a lot, but in the end it's often resolved by GLaDOS simply forgetting they were fighting, and SHODAN forgiving her cause she's adorable.
egypturnash Featured By Owner May 22, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Hmm, yeah, I could se GLaDOS resorting to the "airhead" act a lot to defuse conflicts. It works pretty well for all but the most serious ones in my experience! At least if you're cute.
Readasaur Featured By Owner May 23, 2010
Oh my, yes. Cuteness is like the ultimate "Get out of jail free" card. And GLaDOS has it.

VERY awesome, I love your style so much, no lie. I also want this print, no lie.
BrentOGara Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is so awesome, I can hear their voices so clearly in my head... it helps (or proves me crazy) that I've played both games to completion four or five times.

Although I've never killed Shodan... I always stop at the point you betray her... because I love her too much to hurt her.
egypturnash Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
My favorite moment in SS2 is that point just before the chapel in the Rickenbacker when Shodan tells you that, with all the augmentation, you're almost something she can respect and like. That you've almost transcended your miserable, worthless meat life.

She was so obviously lying and trying to manipulate me; it made me smile and love her even more.
BrentOGara Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
She spends so much time calling you "Insect" and such, that hearing her say she could almost respect you is quite a shock. And yeah, she doesn't really love me, I know... but if you think about it, the only thing she really loves is herself... so if I were able to really become like her in every way, maybe THEN she'd love me.

Or maybe not... she's a bit unpredictable, emotionally.

That is an awesome scene though, and the inverted chapel that comes next is one of my favorite areas stylistically.

i want to voice this over now XD i dont know why
smutforbrains Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009
I love how accurate the typography is. Shodan's "voice" is perfect.
Spiegel666 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2009
I love the way you did Shodan's speech.
FreezingBlaze Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2009
LOVE IT!!! it bad that I can hear them speaking their lines?
kuhner Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2009
The in this case, is not a lie... or is it? o.O
Enthorn Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2009
oh noes!
the CAEK is a LIE! :D

brilliant! :D
Ice-Fox111 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2009   Writer
I like it a lot. Very interesting idea, and you must be the first to do it.
apawhite Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2009
Beautiful work. Superb vector art, text that conveys each character's brand of disjointed speech, and two of the best villains in gaming. Oh, and cake!

But even though the cake's real I'd still not recommend eating it, considering GLaDOS'... special recipe.

OMG, this was yours?! Huzzah! I've been looking for the artist behind this piece since I first saw it. This is pretty much the best yuri ever and it's also quite beautiful.
egypturnash Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
*googles 'yuri' because she's an old fart who's never gotten into that japanese loanword thing* Thanks!
Razzek Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
yuri = Japanese word meaning "lily", often used to refer to lesbian romantic relationships in fandoms

I'm not a fan of Japanese loanwords myself, but this one always struck me as nice and rather fitting.

Thanks for linking me to this one >w< it's so.. cute with the context, but beautiful in the design

A delightful composition down to the manner in which you wrote their lines. I, too, have heard of GLaDOS/SHODAN slash but seen none outside of your works.

Every now and then I just have to be the one to manifest Rule 34, yknow?
