The Day That Started It All 5As soon as the lights went back on, Rattman looked around and noticed that the seats that
once held the girls were empty. He looked back at his fellow scientists; they were all
running around, trying in vain to shut GLaDOS off. He knew there was nothing they could
do; she was in control of the whole facility. He ran up to Chell's father, who was
pounding on the keyboard.
"Her intelligence levels spiked from 0 to off the charts in the first 2 seconds she was
on! I just don't get it; the intelligence dampening core should have fixed that!" Sweat
was beginning to drip down his forehead.
"Oh, that little moron of a core? He's long gone. Was that really the best you could
do?" GLaDOS turned her robot head to the direction of the scientists. Chell's father
grunted and continued to try to turn GLaDOS off.
"Where did you take the girls? WHERE IS MY DAUGHTER?!" Ch
The Day That Started It All 4"Well Doug...only 10 minutes to go. You ready?" Chell's father looked over his paper s
one more time. This project cost 10 trillion dollars, so if it didn't work, they could
kiss Aperture goodbye.
"As ready as anyone ever could be plugging in a homicidal robot that could make or break
this facility. Are you sure this will work, I mean, can this robot really help
Aperture?" Rattman eyed the robot suspiciously. Sure it was off right now, but in that
cold hard shell could just feel something was going to go wrong. "And why did we decide
to have a Bring-Your-Daughter-To-Work-Day the same day as this thing huh?"
"Dude, don't worry. We put the intelligence dampening core in today. This thing is
specifically designed to constantly spew out bad ideas. We gave it a paradox today 'This
sentence is false', and its response was true." Doug laughed, but he looked back at the
The Day That Started It All 3When the presentation ended, the screen lifted and the two Aperture employees resumed
their positions in the front of the room. "Now wasn't that interesting?" , The female
"Chell Chell Chell wake up!" Anne nudged Chell (who was currently sleeping) in the arm.
"Wha-oh, sorry. I never was good during speeches," Chell replied as she rubbed her eyes.
"S'okay, you didn't really miss anything interesting."
"Okay girls, now I hope you all brought your projects, because now we are going to show
them to everyone in the group, and at the end we'll give a special prize to the best
one!" The staff then pushed two long tables to the front, and asked everyone to set up
their projects in a line.
"Oh my! Look at these wonder experiments! Now I want each of you girls to say your name
and what your experiment is." As she talked, Chell looked around the room and saw that
she had counted correctly, there were 42 pota
The Day That Started It All 2Before leaving Chell waved to her dad and followed the other girls into a large room. It
was a very colorful room with several large tables and chairs surrounding them. Towards
the front there was very large portrait of a man with the name CAVE JOHNSON under it, and
above the picture was a banner with the words BRING-YOUR-DAUGHTER-TO-WORK-DAY in big
lettering. Chell gathered her trifold and bag and sat down where one of the Aperture
workers led her, next to a girl with curly blonde hair.
"Hi, my name is Chell!"
"Oh hi," the girl replied, "my name's Anne. Isn't this place so cool? I always wanted
to come here but my Daddy said they were doing secret stuff."
"Me too!" Chell replied as a smile spread across her face. "Oh so what did you do for
"Oh " Anne looked down, "I just did a baking soda volcano. I woulda done something
better but I didn't know what."
"Are you kidding me?!&
The Day That Started It All"Oh boy, oh boy Daddy. I can't wait to see your job!" Little Chell bounced up
and down in the back seat of her Dad's car. She was excited because today was Bring-Your-
Daughter-to work day at the Aperture Labratories, where her father worked as a scientist.
"You see where I work every day when your mom drives you to school." Her father
said as drove up to the Lab's parking lot.
"Yeah, but I never get to see inside, or what your do, or even where you sit!"
"That's because my boss likes to keep our work private, but he's been kind of
sick lately. Besides, today we are going to unveil our new creation, and my boss says
this will put Aperture Lab on the map." Her father parked the car and went to the
backseat to get Chell. After he got her out of the car, he went to the trunk and got out
a trifold board and a plastic bag. "We wouldn't want to forget this huh? I know how
much time you sp
The Day the Doctor ALMOST Died Part 2" tor help! Doctor help!" Amy's voice slowly grew louder in his head as the Doctor
awoke on the cold, hard floor of the restaurant. Without thinking he immediately picked
himself up and began walking toward the TARDIS. He felt like Amy's cry of help was
enough to keep him going, but as he reached for the stairs, he clutched his second
heart. It felt like a knife was plunged into his heart, and as he tried to walk his legs
gave away. He collapsed on the stairs and tried to push himself up, but his body was
"Look at you. You still care. It's impressive, I'll give you that." River looked
at the Doctor with awe. Even after everything he's been through, with all the pain he's
going through he still has the drive to protect the people he cares about.
"River, please!" Why couldn't she see the truth? If he could just somehow show
her who she is.
The Day the Doctor ALMOST Died"Don't you touch her! Do not harm her in any way!" The Doctor yelled. He glared at the
robot-Amy as it released River's face. He did not have much energy left, he knew it, but
he was going to do everything he could to save River.
"Why would you care? She's the woman who kills you." The RoboAmy asked.
"I'm not dead." The Doctor replied. He tried to hide the pain as best as he could, but
he could feel the poison traveling up and down, through every vein in his body.
"You're dying." Carter said in the robot. Inside Amy moved closer to Rory and tightened
her grip on his arm.
"Well. At least I'm not a time-travelling, shape-shifting robot operated by miniaturized
cross people, which I have got to admit, I didn't see coming." The Doctor said. In
truth he really didn't see it coming, and would have though it quite cool if he wasn't
going to die in less than about 5 mi
