A completely portal-obsessed blogger called Silver.

This is primarily a portal blog, and you'll find lots of fanart and fic and cosplaying here.

Sometimes I cosplay Chell or Caroline, but most of the time I'm writing fanfiction, the most popular of which is full-out Portal prequel called Redemption.

I track #silverstreams, and I tag my text posts #silver stuff.

Confession n°4

“I honestly hate the theory that there are dead test subjects inside companion cubes. It doesn’t make any sense. For one, while Aperture is indeed rather insane and deadly, they wouldn’t do such a gruesome thing for no reason. Second of all, if there were dead people inside it, GLaDOS would have eventually used that as another tool to further mentally torment you. Also, they would no longer be able to be made because there are no more test subjects left. There is no evidence to it, really.”

Excellent.

AS ARE YOU! :)

It’s funny reading the comments and watching everyone get all bent out of shape on how to say her name, when nothing is canon confirmed and it makes zero difference at all anyway. RELAX, HEPCATS, WE’RE ALL COOL HERE.

Part of why I love Portal canon so much is that there’s so many things left up to interpretation, including the pronunciation of GLaDOS’s name. And, like, even though Chell’s name is technically pronounced with the hard ch like cello, I know I tend to say the softer ‘shell’ in my head when reading her name.  

But yeah I love how we’re just like ‘okay there’s a bunch of ways to say it and they’re all cool’.

When people who pronounce GLaDOS “Glad-Dose”

image

Ellen Mclain pronounces it that way.

I pronounce it gla-dose

I think the point is that the DOS part is normally pronounced daws in the computer world.

However, I just personally prefer Glad-dose over glad-daws.

Same. I’m aware of the reference to the computer term but I still pronounce it like “dose.” Weirder to me is when people pronounce it like “Gladys” but I guess I can see it being like the scientists intentionally picked an acronym that could be read like a woman’s name, for the sake of ease.

Yeah exactly! It doesn’t really matter how you say it. We all know who you’re talking about.

Redemption AU where Doug, Chell, and Caroline get the hell out of Aperture and instead go on a cross-country road trip to take Chell home.

iM GONNA DO IT

DO IT DO IT

I need to see Caroline be a grumpy old lady and fight Chell for shotgun while Doug continues to quietly drive and do his very best to referee things between the two of them. 

Plot twist: by the end of the trip they all get along well and take some cheesy tourist-y picture together when they’re all smiling and getting along like some horribly dysfunctional family.
