GLaDOS

The mantis yawned and streached before settleing down again. He did not understand the full depth of this situation but this was his way of trying to comfort the girl by saying "I'm not worryed".

Menwhile GLaDOS had to manually reattach the head to her AI body with the help of Atlas and P-body then she also had manually brought that weird table Caroline's body had been laying on up to her room. Again Atlas and P-body made it a lot easyer. They helped her put all the life support stuff back on so her human body would just d.ie when she wasn't using it (she figured it was still usefull and didn't want to throw it away). She then gave them a nodd and they set set it all in motion. The familair pain of having your consiousness ripped out of your head to be moved somewhere else wraked her nerves so baddly that even without her fighting it the bots had to hold GLaDOS's human self down so she wouldn't rip loose and end up with the same problum that happened last time happein again. Luckly it only took a few seconds untill Caroline went still and the light in GLaDOS's eye came flickering to life. Remembering what happened during that time with Chell GLaDOS told the group "It's not safe yet. I have a little while before the storm hits." During this temporary calm GLaDOS put her human body somewhere safe and sent the people from the human vault to go wait with Rizzo. It was just easyer to do this when she could both tell everyone they needed to move at once and then move them all at once. The last thing she did was set up a firewall right around herself that she would have to break before using any of her claws or traps (for example the nurotoxin which GLaDOS didn't have time to flat out get rid of and so firewalled it on top of firewalling herself). This would give her friends time to run if something went wrong. "Remember. If I tell you to run. You run." GLaDOS told them. Then instead of letting the emotions come to her. She went to them. To those around her the AI seemed to go comatos. Atlas and P-body waved their hands in front of her eye to no responce and looked at the rest of the group with worry. Inside GLaDOS's head however was an entirly different story. For you see the general programming of the mainframe could not make sense if the fact that two things were meeting without actully meeting and with the whole thing set up to run somewhat like a human mind GLaDOS essentully started to halucenate. Or perhapes meet up her troubles as a dream is more accurate. In this dream GLaDOS her brain had created a copy of Aperture. Somehow she just knew she had to head to the dream version of her room. As she entered though she did not find her room inside her room. She found Cave Johnson's offace and in it Cave Johnson. Or at least...a recreation of Cave Johnson. GLaDOS stared. Speechless. The Cave Johnson copy turned to face her and said "Hello Caroline. You look like you've seen a ghost." GLaDOS continued to stare so false Johnson continued to speak "Well. Since you're here I would like to have a little talk with you." Suddenly annoyed for no reason GLaDOS snapped "NO! I want to have a little talk with YOU! How-how COULD you! I told you I didn't want to be in your experiment and you put me in it anyway! How DARE you! How dare you talk about how much you love me and then turn around to stab me in the back!" GLaDOS progressivly became more and more inraged "I don't care that you were sick and not going to make it into the experiment yourself that does NOT give you the right to rip your best friend's mind in two when she spesificly told you not too! YOU'RE the reason those people are dead! YOU'RE the reason EVERYONE is dead! YOU'RE MORE A MONSTER THAN I EVER WAS!!!" Cave Johnson's room cracked and fell apart to reveal GLaDOS's room behind it. A claw came down from the ceeling and seezed copy Cave Johnson. GLaDOS realized with glee that it was under her controll and was just about to crush copy Cave Johnson.

Harper used her telepathy on

Harper used her telepathy on GLaDOS, "GLaDOS, it's Harper, I'm still here, forget HIM, stay with the ones that love you, we're still here for you, you can fight this  my sister, I know you can, please don't leave us because of what happened, HE'S gone, and your friends are still here, we love you" Harper says using Sleuther to hover at her eye level "Please, stay....."

GLaDOS

The claw dropped fake Cave Johnson. "H-Harper?" GLaDOS asked into the space of her subconscious as she snapped back to reality. Well....sort of. She was still in the dream but she remembered what she was suppose to be doing."The corruption." She gasped. Fake Cave Johnson coughed then told GLaDOS "So you found me. Was it worth it?" GLaDOS felt her imaginary self go cold. That's what she had told to.... Cave Johnson was suddenly gone and Chell stood in his place. GLaDOS didn't even have time to speak before Chell turned into a horrifying beast somewhere in between a big cat and a rat. It's body shape was feline but it's tail and paws were those of a rat. It's eyes were red and it's fur was white like its rat half was specifically lab rat. Its head looked both kind of ratish and kind of catish with more of a snout than a cat but fangs and pupils much more like a cat than a rat. Monster Chell opened its mouth as if to roar but no sound came out then it leaped at GLaDOS, threw her to the floor and ripped something off of her. She let out a scream as it hurt horrbley but when she looked up at monster it was holding a personality core. A fire opened up in the floor and monster Chell threw it in then it turned back towards GLaDOS like it was ready for more. GLaDOS tried to stop it but it jumped around claws with ease to rip into her again. It was strange. She was in Caroline's form and no physical damage was actually being done but boy did it hurt. She tried to run and the beast chased her. She blocked off entire hallways and the beast found a way around. She put test chambers in the way and it solved them with ease. It could solve any puzzle and get through any barrier. It spat portals and jumped through them. It knocked down turrets and dodged lasers. In the end it always caught her. Suddenly things paused or,....perhaps she paused them she wasn't sure, and GLaDOS suddenly had time to realize what this creature was. This wasn't actually Chell. This was her fear of Chell put into the physical form of the noiseless monster she had thought of Chell as for years. An embodiment of all that was scary about Chell. But this wasn't all Chell was just like scary GLaDOS wasn't the only GLaDOS there was. There was the sound of claws on floor pannles and although her imaginary heart raced GLaDOS shut her imaginary eyes and tried to imagine something else. Anything else that would make her stop thinking about the scary part of Chell. 

"CAWWWW!" GLaDOS's imaginary eyes snapped open. Before her was a giant crow. 

"Oh god no." GLaDOS said under her breath right before the crow brought down its beak. She dodged and got out of the way by inches. The crow pecked again with enough force that even though she managed to get out of the way a second time she could feel the impact through the floor pannles beneath her. On the third time it got her. It pinched her sides with its beak and tilted its head upward as if getting ready to swallow her whole. GLaDOS screamed "HELP! SOMEONE ANYONE PLEASE!!! HELP ME!!!" Almost immediately she was thrown to the ground amongst a background of angry squawking. When she turned to see what had happened she saw monster Chell challenging the bird. She bared her teeth and let out another noiseless roar before charging and leaping on the bird to bite at it while it wildly beat its wings and snapped back. When the bird was finally able to fling the rat lion off it flew away scared. Monster Chell turned back towards GLaDOS who's imaginary heart raced causing the beast to become a monster again. It jumped forward and landed with front paws pinning GLaDOS to the ground. Luckily for GLaDOS she realized this creature's behavior was very much based on how she felt about it. She shut her eyes for a second to regain her composure then looked the monster right in the face and said "I UNDERSTAND why you acted that way." Monster Chell paused and its eyes softened. GLaDOS reached up and stroked the fur on monster Chell's cheek as she continued "I'm the one who made you this way. Just like Cave Johnson made me the way I was then. You're no monster. You were only ever defending yourself." She placed her other hand on monster Chell's other cheek. "In fact. Even after all I did to you you still saved me when I was a potato and I SAW you make a lunge for Wheatley before he flew out into space. You tried to save him too. Now don't get me wrong that was dumb and you're dumb for doing it but it was also brave and really forgiving. I don't know if you ever actually forgave me all that time ago or if you just didn't want Aperture to blow up with you in it but there definitely wasn't anything self serving about you nearly getting yourself blown out into space so I know. I know you're NOT a monster. You were just a human who was really good at getting yourself out of bad situations. You WERE a little bit of a lunatic though but that's ok. Everyone in Aperture is. Go home and enjoy your life you little maniacal nutball. Maybe I'll even send you a cake. I do owe you one don't I?" Chell smiled at her. And it was Chell. Not monster Chell. Just Chell. Imaginary Chell let go of GLaDOS and disappeared. 

GLaDOS got up and brushed off her dress. "Alright. What's next." She said. GLaDOS Wheatley appeared (Wheatley in GLaDOS's body). She told him "Don't bother me m.oron. You're the least of my problems. All you are is corrupted by me. None of that was even you so go away." GLaDOS Wheatley disappeared. 

Next GLaDOS approached a group of scientists. She told them "I suppose you all are representations of the people who pinned me to that table?" The scientists nodded. She told them "Well considering the fact that you're all dead I got back at you already didn't I? You all murdered yourselves like proper idiots. I hope you're happy. Now where is Cave Johnson. I wasn't done with him." The scientists pointed the way. GLaDOS re-entered her room and there he was. She walked up to him and slapped him in the face. "I know I probably wasn't suppose to do that but it made me feel better and that's what's important. If somehow you came back from the dead and met me in real life I wouldn't k.ill you but do consider us broken up. You'll need a big apology to make me like you again. Though maybe seeing what you did would be enough to make you realize it was wrong. You didn't WANT to make a monster. You just wanted to upgrade Caroline. Still. I did tell you no and you did it anyway so I feel like I can't leave this completely peacefully. Here. Have some cake." GLaDOS imagined a cake in her hands and threw it in Cave Johnson's face. As she watched imaginary Johnson wipe himself off she told him "I'll choose doing that instead of k.illing you in real life too if given the chance. You're welcome." then started to leave the room. However a very familiar voice behind her stopped her "Oh no. You're not done just yet." GLaDOS turned to see GLaDOS. Imaginary GLaDOS told her "You look surprised to see me. That's strange. You're buddys out there did mention that you might have to fight yourself. Don't worry. It won't hurt." A claw came down and grabbed actual GLaDOS so roughly she cried out. She could have sworn she even felt a rib crack though that didn't seem possible. She gasped "You said this wouldn't hurt!" To which imaginary GLaDOS replied "Did I? Oh I'm sorry. I meant it wouldn't hurt physically. It will definitely definitely hurt mentally which is an entirely different kind of pain." Real GLaDOS struggled to remove the claw. Imaginary GLaDOS told her "Don't bother. You know this is what you want. Someone to punish you for your crimes." The claw spun real GLaDOS around the walls shoving her face first against them at high speed. The pressure gave her a nasty rub burn before the claw threw her across the room. Real GLaDOS grimaced for a second dealing with the pain before she imagined the damage gone to get rid of it. While she did this imaginary GLaDOS kept talking "Did you really want to become this pathetic little thing any more than you wanted to become me? We both know you're a very vengeful person deep down. If you forgive everything else where's all that vengence going to fall?" Real GLaDOS looked up just in time to dodge a spike plate coming down on her. Fake GLaDOS told her "Congrats at realizing Cave Johnson didn't mean any harm but you do realize what this means don't you? YOU k.illed all those people Caroline. You can redirect blame all you want but in the end that was still YOUR nerotoxin flooding their lungs." A green gas filled the room. Real GLaDOS couldn't help but cough. Her lungs burned. She even started to become dizzy and forgetting this was a dream for a second she tried to run. Fake GLaDOS told her "Yes. This is how it feels to d.ie via nurotoxin. You wanted to know didn't you? There's nowhere to go. The whole place is flooded just like YOU did a long time ago. I'm giving you the full test subject experience. Maybe I'll even put you through some tests if you'd like. You monster." Real GLaDOS fell to her knees. She had lost her ability to balance. She had to stop this. She had to clear her head somehow. Acting on impulse she yelled "If you're going to do it do it right!"

"What's that suppose to mean?" Asked fake GLaDOS sounding insulted.

Real GLaDOS had gained enough composure to get rid of the imaginary nerotoxin. She stood up and said "I've found that if you really want someone to suffer nerotoxin isn't the best approach. Come on. You can do worse. I won't even run this time if that made it too difficult for you." Fake GLaDOS made a noise of anger then smashed real GLaDOS's imaginary form. Real GLaDOS repaired it and took a step forward to not be standing half in the mashy spike plate. "Too quick. Try again." She told this other her. Fake GLaDOS set down a turret and told it to hit mostly non vitals so it would be a bleed out d.eath. The turret obeyed and real GLaDOS repaired herself again. She also took another step forward and with a shrug said "What was that? Rain?" Fake GLaDOS tried lasers. Real GLaDOS repaired herself and looked at her nails. "What was that? A sunbeam? Were you trying to give me cancer later in life? That's TOO slow. It'll be boring. Try again." This went on for a while.

Fake GLaDOS tried to k.ill.

Real GLaDOS would mock it and step forward.

Fake GLaDOS tried to k.ill.

Real GLaDOS would mock it and step forward.

Fake GLaDOS tried to k.ill.

Real GLaDOS would mock it and step forward.

On and on until Real GLaDOS was right next to fake GLaDOS. Fake GLaDOS shrieked "WHY WON'T YOU D.IE?!?!"

Real GLaDOS replied "You can't k.ill YOURSELF silly. Well...I mean you can but not like this."

Fake GLaDOS told her "NOT D.IE PERMANENTLY! D.IE OVER AND OVER! BUT YOU DON'T FALL! YOU DON'T EVEN GIVE ME THE SATISFACTION OF A SIMPLE OW! I CAN'T PUNISH YOU IF I CAN'T HURT YOU!!! I'M YOUR ANGER AT YOURSELF! I'M SUPPOSE TO-" Real GLaDOS stopped fake GLaDOS there by throwing her arms around her to the best of her ability. Fake GLaDOS froze mid rant. "Um.....What are you doing?" She asked.

"Hugging." Replied the real GLaDOS. Fake GLaDOS told her "What? We don't do hugs!" to which real GLaDOS replied "I know. But sometimes even monsters need them. Look, Vengeance if I may call you that. We don't NEED to be angry any more. The people who hurt us are DEAD. Do you understand that? And yes. We hurt a lot of innocent people and we may never be able to make up for that but please. We have a chance to not be the monster we were made into. We have friends now. People to protect. People who FORGAVE what we did. If they can do that. Maybe we're not too far gone after all. We can do science. REAL science. With people who are with us by choice and who won't constantly try to k.ill us. Doesn't that sound worth trying?"

Fake GLaDOS seemed to think about it for a while then said "Maybe it does." But it wasn't Fake GLaDOS who was speaking anymore. There was only real GLaDOS in GLaDOS's form. As she opened her real eye and cameras to the world she found herself wondering if fake GLaDOS was really fake or if she had just witnessed a proper battle between GLaDOS and Caroline. She looked around at her friends. Then....after a long while of silence she said "I think...I did it."

GLaDOS looked at P-body and Atlas worried. "Uh oh. Is she allergic to confetti or something? Can you two make sure that she's still breathing? I kind of heavily firewalled myself and its going to be a while until I can do anything big. And no the confetti doesn't count because that's harmless." Atlas and P-body decided to wisely not ask why scanning was potentially worse so they wouldn't waist time. They went to Harper's side to check on her.

P-body and Atlas fall over they are so suprized. On GLaDOS's side the wall pannles do that cat hairlike flick thing for even though GLaDOS could make those things move at the moment thanks to the firewall they still responded to her emotions. "Not funny." Snapped GLaDOS though not overly angrily. Then she looked at Atlas struggling to get up because he is round and rolled he had back clear onto his head. GLaDOS admitted "Well. THAT'S funny I suppose. P-body help your brother. Laughing is fine but help him." P-body stopped laughing long enough to help Atlas up.

GLaDOS replied "Why does everyone who trusts me always suddenly decide I want them to leave when I haven't said it?" P-body started to point out that there was only one other person who said that but GLaDOS told him a simple and monotone "Shut up." then continued to talk to Harper. "Any time I've wanted someone to leave I've always been very blunt about it. Don't just assume that if I haven't said it." She paused then added "You know. I would have fallen back into being monster GLaDOS if it weren't for you. I know you probably think you didn't do much but that little reminder made all the difference in the world."

The mantis man took the muffin and happily ate it as the elevator took him up. GLaDOS told Harper "That may take a few minutes. It's got a long way to go. I'm sure he'll stay on task though since it won't open until he's out and Rizzo will probably be right there to remind him of what he's doing. At least....I hope that's the case. The only way to find out is to wait I guess."

"I believe if I did that I'd be a massive hypocrite." GLaDOS replied. "Literally. A massive hypocrite. Not that I haven't been a hypocrite in the past but we agreed I would drop that." The AI turned her head to one side and added "Magic and science together. How ironic. Most people including myself never thought such forces would meet much less get along."

"Well someone's been just as scary to humans as I have haven't they?" GLaDOS asked but it was a rhetorical question. She didn't wait for an answer before properly answering the question "The fact that you could wipe me out but don't and ask for nothing but shelter tells me you're not a threat. Especially since you act like I could hurt you. When biological creatures act that way to a less powerful creature that usually means they are saying they are not a threat with their body language. Even your subconscious is trying to get that message across."

GLaDOS

"Thank goodness." GLaDOS mumbled then she said out loud "As for where you can sleep I don't really care. Pick anywhere as long as it's not somewhere dumb or inconvenient like right on my head or on pistons that need to move or something. I don't even care if it's in here seeing as StarShadow has kind of made me able to deal with roommates via exposure to having said roommate. There are beds in the relaxation chambers but if those creep you out given their history I can always move a bed from there to somewhere else. It would be easy for me too seeing as I have my claws back so don't worry about being a nuisance."

The next morning, Harper has a bright blue blanket on GLaDOS, it's a wool blanket. Harper is still asleep.

GLaDOS

GLaDOS removes the blanket the next morning with slight confusion as to why it was there. She knew Harper must have put it there and it was a nice gesture really but it was unneeded. Besides she had something else to worry about. GLaDOS tells Atlas and P-body "Have ether of you seen Rizzo, Tripod or the mantis man recently? The fact that none of them have shown up worries me. Especially the mantis man. If he's out running around some town that could be a problem." Atlas and P-body both shrugged. 

"Of course you haven't." Grumbled GLaDOS she continued "Why wouldn't you have seen them if I haven't? Oh well. It was worth a try. Let's hope we don't end up with investigators at our doorstep. That would NOT go well. I mean this place still violates multiple safety precautions and- Oh wait. Is that them now? Not the investigators I mean Rizzo and the others. I hope so because someone is using the elevator and if it's not them then-"

At that moment the elevator came back. When it opened there was Rizzo, Tripod and bugs who had a "Did I do good?" kind of look on his insectoid face. Rizzo meanwhile started "Hey GLaDOS. Did you know your voice reaches at least half way up the- AAAH!" 

"What's a matter?" GLaDOS asked. Rizzo replied "N-Nothing. I just forgot how close the elevator was to you and was totally not expecting giant AI right in my face even though I definitely by all means should have expected it. By the way. Of all the people you sent Bugs? The guy you can easily get to do anything with food and who doesn't talk? Greeaat idea to send for proof of your not insainness."

GLaDOS told him "Tough talk for someone who is still half worried I might be crazy." Rizzo shrugged and replied "Well. You could say my curiosity was stronger than my survival instinct. Soo....I do hope you actually are sain. Are you sain?"

GLaDOS pointed something at Rizzo that looked to him like a gun. This caused him to panic and yell "EEK! Whatever that is at least tell me before you-" confetti was flung all over Rizzo and Tripod with a anticlimactic pop. Rizzo's face went from terrified to VERY unamused while GLaDOS laughed in the background. GLaDOS told him "It was just a party cannon. You should have seen your face!" Rizzo couldn't keep his face straight. He laughed as well and put a hand to his forehead as he said "Oh no. You're still a troll?! I thought this would get rid of that!" He shook his head and said half jokingly "We shouldn't have come back down here."

"But you did." GLaDOS pointed out with a taunting tone. Rizzo agreed "Ya I did. I walked right into that little prank of yours too. Dear lord. You nearly gave me a heart attack."

GLaDOS told him "I have something that can fix that." to which Rizzo said "I'm sure you do. But considering how freaky technology can be around here I'd rather not see it."

"I take that as slightly offensive." GLaDOS told him. "I bet your friend does too."

Rizzo replied "Oh. Right. You're both made of technology. I forgot. Sorry GLaDOS. Sorry Tripod."

GLaDOS told him "Back to the nearly giving people a heart attack topic. Where were you? We sent the bug ages ago."

Rizzo pointed at said bug and said "Don't look at me! HE'S the one who held us up!"

"What happened?" asked GLaDOS.

Rizzo replied "It's a long story."

"I have time." GLaDOS told him. Rizzo rolled his eyes then started "Alright. Fine. Well you know how that exit opens out into a cornfield? Bugs there decided he wanted to see if he could find the farm. He scared the horses, ate a chicken and then chased a car down a nearby gravel road. Also, he scared some kid on the way. Luckily he's not a good flyer and we eventually caught up to him. Then we got kind of lost on the way back and the police showed up and we had to hide to avoid explaining why we were trespassing, why we had a giant BUG with us, why I had a sentient GUN on my shoulders and to make it worse we also had to help the people from the vault not be spotted and- Honestly I'm not sure none of them did. The fact that there's just a bunch of people in the field might have been what made the farmer take notice."

GLaDOS replied "Well. That definitely explains a lot. Let's hope nothing bad comes of this."

Rizzo replied "GLaDOS was being a troll."

GLaDOS added "To be more specific I just scared the hair off Rizzo with a party gun. Like this." GLaDOS shot more confetti on Rizzo who brushed it off with an annoyed "Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me."

Harper shook her head "you

Harper shook her head "you know Sis, you're gonna REALLY scare someone badly if that keeps up" she says laughing

 

"OH! and Bugs..." Harper said holding out a muffin "I made these last night, i filled them with nectar" 

 

Harper rubs her leg with her hand, "I hurt my leg last night also" she states

To the comment about scaring people GLaDOS replied "Humans in several places have holidays all about scaring other humans. Amusement parks with rides specifically designed to scare them are also a thing. I don't think scaring humans specifically is a bad thing. Unless of course that particular human has heart problems. Rizzo here however doesn't."

Tripod commented "She has a point." which made Rizzo turn his head as far as it would go to give the turret a false annoyed look. (A.K.A. a "I'm pretending to be annoyed but I'm really not" look) 

 

Bugs meanwhile took the nectar muffin and ate it in his usual messy way. Rizzo commented "Man. I wonder if being messy is just part of the experience for him. It's like the more he likes something the more of a mess he makes." Tripod added "Ya. Like a baby. He seems to like to literally get into his food. But to his credit when he completely finishes there is rarely a crumb left."

 

 

When Harper mentioned getting hurt GLaDOS turned to her and said "Oh? When did that happen? How bad is it?"

"I just sprained my leg, no

"I just sprained my leg, no big deal" she says, "it's not like breaking a bone, it's like...well..if a leg gets sort of tired " she states "I'm really ok GLaDOS" she says

 

"I see you got the blanket I made you" she says limping over to GLaDOS "I thought it was creative and thoughtful, what do you think?" she asks smiling

"You made it?" GLaDOS asked. She looked it over then replied "It's very good quality. It might be more useful to me when I'm Caroline though."

"When you're Caroline?" Rizzo asked to which GLaDOS replied "You didn't think I would just throw away a perfectly good body did you? Yes I'm still planning to use it sometimes. It may hurt a whole lot to switch from one to the other but that doesn't mean I won't do it. In fact maybe I should look into ways to improve that process. Yes. I definitely should do that."

"Well, i DID help you become nice again, so helping you improve transfers shouldn't be an issue " Harper said going over to Bugs and petting his back "You're never going to care about anything other than food are you?" she said jokingly

Bugs made a happy noise in response as he licked nectar from his claws. Meanwhile GLaDOS watched with interest. Not the bug but Harper. She thought of the long list of powers she had been told and she became curious about something. How good was Harper's ability to see things coming really? If her focus was on Bugs could she watch GLaDOS at the same time? Or...Perhaps she would not notis something if it wasn't a threat? Half a test (but of course not that kind of test) and half a harmless bit of rough housing GLaDOS made a playful grab for Harper with the intention of just seeing if she could pick her up.

Rizzo immediately darted out of the room yelling "AH! SHE'S EVIL AGAIN! SHE'S GONE EVIL!"

"NO I HAVEN'T" GLaDOS called after him then she turned her attention back to Harper and told her "So it IS possible to pick you up. I was wondering given the whole you can see things coming before they happen thing."

Harper laughs "i actually knew, I just wanted to see if you still had the guds to do it" she says in a teasing manner and reaches her arms out as if she wanted to hug GLaDOS

GLaDOS asked "What are you doing? Oh....That's the "Hug Please" signal isn't it?" GLaDOS sighed and said "Alright but only because I invaded your space first." then she brought Harper closer to allow the hug to happen. 

Meanwhile Rizzo peaked his head into the room "So...You're not evil again?"

GLaDOS replied "No. Of course not. I just wanted to test something." Then taking notice at the look Rizzo gave her she told him "Not THAT kind of test. Just....you know a regular find things out sort of test."

"Well. I'm working on it." GLaDOS replied. Rizzo added "Your social skills could use some work too. Main case in point don't just grab people. I know you're use to doing that but not everyone will be as ok with that as Harper." GLaDOS asked him "Oh. Do these still make you nervous?" And waved a claw in his direction. Rizzo stepped back a bit then snapped "YES! I don't think they'll ever stop making me nervous ether!"

Setting down Harper GLaDOS asked Rizzo "Why? Is there still a part of you that thinks I'll hurt you?" 

Rizzo replied "More like I don't like your claws because of a bad experience with them. You know, kind of like how you're still terrified of birds even though there's no way they can hurt you as a facility sized AI." 

GLaDOS told him "What?! How did you find out about that?!"

Rizzo replied "Everyone in the entirety of Aperture can hear you scream when a bird gets in your room." GLaDOS said "Oh....wow....I guess I should have thought about that." Then mumbled "Well that's embarrassing."
