The Core and the fury RP
Chell looked at GLaDOS with a "He's freaking laughing about it!" kind of look. GLaDOS quietly told her "Yes. I'm disgusted too." then grabbed the man in one of her claws. She told him "You think that's funny do you? I really ought to make YOU extinct and see how you like it. However I still have another question for you. Is that group of yours here? Did you bring them with you into Aperture?"
GLaDOS told him "You know for someone who could be dead soon you have a lot of misplaced pride. I suppose telling you that I could easily k.ill you in a multitude of ways wouldn't be enough to make you leave Harper alone?"
Rizzo put a hand over Tripod's eye knowing how squeamish she was and also knowing something nasty was probably coming.
"Nice." GLaDOS said unamused. She continued "Guess who just lost their right to live." before crushing the man in her claw. Rizzo gagged a bit at the sight then told GLaDOS "And THAT is why people do not like your claws."
GLaDOS replied "What? I DO wash them."
"Whether you wash them or not isn't the problem." Said Rizzo. GLaDOS replied "I guess it does make quite a mess." to which Rizzo repeated "THE MESS ISN'T THE PROBLEM!"
GLaDOS told her "I will be sure to let them know their captor is gone." as she started to clean up the mess.
Chell thought to Harper "Yuck. I know Rizzo said the mess isn't the problum when it comes to people not liking her claws and he is right but that did make a mess."
Chell laughed then turned around and tickled Harper as revenge.
"You started it." Thought Chell through her laughter.
GLaDOS exchanged a look with Chell and said "That's....not a usual reaction to being tickled. Is this something star children do or is she just really tired?" Chell shrugged both not bothered by the situation and not knowing the answer to GLaDOS's question. GLaDOS thought for a moment then said "We should test that later. I assume tickling someone is a test that people won't hate me for." Chell snort-giggled at the idea but was pretty sure Harper would see it coming. Then again maybe it didn't matter.
"Is this someone I'm going to end up meeting at some point?" GLaDOS asked through a speaker near the exit of Aperture. ((If she has cameras that can look out and see deers and people then I'm guessing she can speak to people just outside too)) Meanwhile she also told Chell "They just teleported outside if you are wondering. I noticed you looking around."
GLaDOS commented "AAAaaaannd she's gone. I hope she'll be careful given the whole people are after her thing."
She turned herself around to find HeartShine right in her face and let out a surprised "AH!" before recognizing the dragon. With no idea how the dragon had gotten right behind her without her cameras noticing GLaDOS told the dragon "How did- why did- Nevermind just don't sneak up on me again. Especially when I'm in this form. I could hurt you without even meaning to you know."
HeartShine told her "I have a question."
GLaDOS told her "Well. Go ahead and ask."
HeartShine asked "Why does the night terror smell like a shooty person?"
GLaDOS asked back "Shooty person? You mean a turret?"
"Yes." Replied HeartShine.
GLaDOS explained "That's because she IS a turret. Or....was. It's not exactly easy to get dragons in Aperture. Before I could get a hold of one I decided to try and make one. After a few trys I did. Depending on your point of view you could say the experiment was a successes given that it didn't k.ill her but she also got away from me before I could test her much so....I wasn't very happy about that at the time."
Chell raised an eyebrow. GLaDOS snapped "Like you wouldn't have been curious too after just having found out dragons exist. I just had a different kind of curious."
HeartShine asked "Does she shoot fire like a dragon or bullets like a shooty person?"
GLaDOS replied "I don't know. I never got the chance to test her. By the way they are called turrets. Turr-ets."
"Shooty people is funnyier." Said HeartShine. GLaDOS decided that wasn't worth a responce.
While Chell gave SharpShot a friendly pat GLaDOS asked Harper "I have a question we were talking about while you were gone. What does SharpShot shoot? I know it's not the most polite thing to just open up a reunion with a question but ever since shortly after you left the question has been bothering me. Not in a bad way or anything it's just.... HeartShine brought it up and I can't not think about it."
"Does she shoot both out of her mouth or do the bullets come from somewhere else?" GLaDOS asked her curiosity increasing.
Rizzo and Chell both laughed. GLaDOS told them "What? Considering the fact that turrets shoot from their sides the guns could have moved anywhere. It was an honest question."
GLaDOS quietly asked "Is that a please become Caroline so I have an actual ear to whisper into or just a I need to tell you something?"
"Something Chell can't hear huh?" GLaDOS asked. She then used a claw to move the immediately annoyed at this Chell into another room before switching to Caroline just for extra quietness. She chuckled and told Harper "She's probably going to get me back for that somehow but oh well. Whisper away."
GLaDOS could not see the resemblance right away. After all Wheatley was a ball with an eye and this was a cat. As such when she turned to look where Harper was pointing and the cat puffed up his fur looking frightened to be spotted GLaDOS/Caroline said "It sure is a skittish thing. I can understand being scared of my AI form but come on. Caroline isn't very frightening at all. ....Anyway.....What does this have to do with Chell?"
"His name is Wheatley?!" Asked GLaDOS/Caroline. She eyed the furry creature with extreme suspicion. Now that she looked at it with it's grey fur, roundish head and weirdly bright blue eyes he did kind of look like the m.oron. No. It couldn't be. That was impossible. .....Right?
Distracted by the other lady who was stareing at him Wheatley wondered "Is that GLaDOS? Oh no. That's GLaDOS isn't it. She's got that look. Is she still mad at me?" He turned to Harper and thought."You know what? I just remembered. I need to be....er....somewhere else. Yes. I have an appointment somewhere else and it's really important. So if you'll just." He squirmed in an attempt to get out of Harper's arms.
((He's lieing about the appointment of course))
Wheatley quit fighting but thought "No it's not ok! It's not ok! Why are we even in this room? It can't be safe!" for he did not know about GLaDOS's rehabilitation and he was very scared that just being in GLaDOS's room was a danger to their lives.
Hearing Harper's side of the conversation GLaDOS/Caroline was quickly peacing things together. At that last part she asked "Harper. When you say this cat is named Wheatley do you mean the Wheatley who almost destroyed the facility?" Despite Harper's attempts to reassure him Wheatley still couldn't help but think "Oh god she recognizes me! How do I let her know I'm sorry. HOW DO I LET HER KNOW I'M SORRY!" His ears flattened against his head and his cat instincts made him let out an awful sounding half growling howl. Immediately he mentally yelled at himself "AHG! Stuped STUPED STUPED! Why would I do that? Why did I do that?! She's going to think you're insulting her you-"
Quite to Wheatley's shock GLaDOS/Caroline laughed. It wasn't an evil laugh or even a rude laugh. It was a laugh like GLaDOS found this generally amusing.
Wheatley had just enough time to think "W-What?" before GLaDOS said "I bet he is. The poor idiot fell to my old corruption, betrayed his friend then proceeded to try to k.ill said friend when she survived his betrayal. I know you Wheatley. You are a fickle person with a soft mind. There is no punishment I could inflict apon you that would be worse than your guilt over what you did to Chell. As such I won't try to punish you. Instead I'll just tell you that Chell is in the building and let your own mind do the rest. I will admit I am still quite annoyed about the whole potato thing but if Harper thinks it's worth showing you mercy then show you mercy I shall."
"Chell is still alive?" Wheatley thought. At first a wave of relief and joy washed over him for he had been sure she had d.ied in the vacuum of space. But soon that turned into "Oh god. Chell is still alive. She's going to be mad at me and rightly so. I should get out of here." Only one problum though. He had no idea where he would go if he did try to leave.
Weatley ran to Harper's side and grabbed a hold of one of her legs "Nononono! I trust you! I trust you very much! Don't leave me to deal with these people alone. .....Please?"
Chell ran into Harper in a hall. She was looking quite annoyed after GLaDOS's little claw grab without permission and/or a warning. She was on her way back after GLaDOS had switched to AI form to unlock the door Chell was stuck behind. Under Chell's arm was one of GLaDOS's cameras that Chell had ripped off the wall as revenge. When GLaDOS saw it with a different camera she commented "You just had to do that didn't you." Chell gave the active camera on the wall a naughty grin before turning her attention to Harper knowing something was up.
Chell gave Harper a confused look. GLaDOS told her "The cat Chell." Chell looked down. Almost immediately Wheatley squished his belly against the floor nervously. Chell looked GLaDOS in the camera with a raised eyebrow. GLaDOS told her "I know he's a little difficult to recognize like that but look closely. I think you'll find he's someone we both know." Chell took another look at the cat. Suddenly her eyes widened. And so did Wheatley's but for a different reason. Cat Wheatley swallowed h.ard to gather his nerves then creeped over to Chell's feet with ears back and body low. There was so much he wanted to tell her. To apologize for. But all he could do was meow a pitiful meow and hope that even if he could not be forgiven he would not be hated. Chell stared at him for almost a full minute in which Wheatley couldn't help but become more and more nervous from the suspense. In the end he couldn't take it any more and turned to flee. It was at this moment Chell chose to act. With an impressive speed even for Chell she grabbed him and held him to his chest. Wheatley let out a terrified noise thinking Chell was being aggressive until he realized he was not being squeezed to death. No. He was just being held gently. Chell buried her face in his fur and tears came to her eyes. "I forgive you." She thought.
GLaDOS commented "Hmf. He gets full forgiveness and I continue to get suspicious looks? That's hardly fair."
Rizzo told her "Don't YOU give HER suspicious looks?"
"I still think it's unfair." GLaDOS told him sounding insulted.
"By doing things like you just did." Replied Chell who was still holding a now very relieved cat Wheatley
"Do you want to?" Asked Chell.
GLaDOS offered "I could build him a new core body and use a similar technology to the one originally used to turn Caroline into GLaDOS if you want. I think that machine might still be laying around somewhere. If not I'm sure there are at least blueprints."
Wheatley asked "Would it hurt? Based on what happened to you after that it sounds like it would hurt."
GLaDOS replied "Oh it would hurt all right. It would be a core transfer after all."
Wheatley's fur stood up on end and he said "No thank you! Nonononono!" Then he noticed he was talking and his attention was immediately pulled to his collar instead. "Oh hey. It works. Thanks Harper."
GLaDOS added "Speaking of that collar. Maybe you should put one of those on Chell too. Then she can just be the lunatic and not the mute lunatic."
