Portal: Sad MachinePortal: Sad MachineIndianaInspired by Sad Machine by Porter RobinsonCharacters: GLaDOS, Doug RattmannSetting: Post Portal 2Synopsis: When Doug learns of GLaDOS’s final gesture to Chell, he decides he just might have been wrong after all. She looked even bigger, somehow.“You’re still alive.” Oddly, she didn’t sound all that disappointed. She sounded more like she’d been expecting him to be alive. He shrugged.“Sometimes you get lucky.”“I was hoping it would be someone else this time,” she remarked, tilting her core in such a human way that he couldn’t help but shudder. For all her insistence on being the indomitable AI, her mimicry of human behaviours was disturbing. It was if she were mocking him in his powerlessness, as if he was so much smaller than her for being human rather than acting like one.
