    Bookmarker's Notes

    Portal (and to a lesser extent its sequel) mean a great deal to me, and especially after coming to understand GLaDOS, the experience of playing these games and understanding that character has come to haunt me like a beautiful wound, something profound and aching and unresolved. For several years I would look through the fic around it every once in a long while, hoping to see something that filled that hole, that felt as real as those games and saw that world as I did, as had spoken so deeply to me.

    This story is, in many ways, what I have been looking for. I don’t think anything produced by another person will fully realize what I’ve been carrying with me—I’ll likely have to write something myself, at some point—but this fic showed me that a similar vision to the one that’s stuck with me so long was shared with another person. It is slow, and kind, and precisely in-key, and honest. It is a realization of the healing I needed to see cast in the honesty and reality within which I needed to see it.

    Summary

    “You probably do not think this is cruel,” GLaDOS says suddenly, not taking her gaze from the mouse for a second, “After all, you have such enormous capacity for cruelty, I doubt you can recognise mistreatment even when it is right before your eyes. However, a normal human with basic abilities of empathy, love, and compassion, would correctly identify my treatment of this animal as cruel.”

    Chell says nothing.

    “However, if this experiment were to be submitted to an ethics committee, it would receive full approval. Cruelty, in and of itself, is not wholly banned in science, after all. It is simply needless cruelty, the kind you excel in, that is not permitted. What I am doing is necessary for testing conditions. What I do is the only way for knowledge to progress.”
    --
    Chell, GLaDOS, and the end of the world.
