Caution: This is a short post because I was too sick to write a bigger one.
I had a Portal Fanfiction in mind a while ago, and there was a lot of fangirlish screams in my mind at the time, and I was really thinking that it would be an awesome story. Didn't even get past, like, 150 words. Most of it is just notes.
I'm out of the loop. Out of my mind. I'm hidden for the moment, where she can't find me.
..For the moment.
This is for anyone who finds these recordings. This is for all to know what true evil lies here. This is for my daughter, Amy.
This is for the record.
My first day working at Aperture Science Laboratories was not as I expected, to say the least.
I didn't know what I was in for. I had been sent a letter, clean and crisp, three days earlier. It contained the whereabouts of a place that when searched into Google Maps or looked up in any directory, did not exist. Under the address, there were a few lines of text, stating that I had been given a chance to work at a science laboratory that specialized in a 'very interesting area of science'.
I was instantly interested.
(a quote for later)
"This is for the record. History is written by the victor.
History is filled with liars. (bold)
If he lives, and we die, his truth becomes written - and ours is lost. He will be a hero. 'Cause all you need to change the world is one good lie and a river of blood. He's about to complete the greatest trick a liar ever played on history. His truth will be the truth. But only if he lives, and we die."

Alright, that's all I had. Things to note? Amy is a reoccurring name. I had an Amy in my class when I was in year 1, 2 and 3. I don't remember anything else about her except her blond hair. I left that school and never heard from her again, until recently, when I found all of that class was going to a church nearby. Yeah. We're just not in the same group. In fact, that entire class is kinda like...the 'popular' group now, so I just tend to stay away. I didn't know you could have popular groups in church. At least, because they're Christians in a church, they don't insult/slander you in your face. They're awesome people. Just none of us are friends XD
I have used and will continue to use a lot of the names from that class. There were some really cool names. One of the guys is called Isaac, which I've always liked. I felt that name was a precursor to Israel, because...the 'I'...and they look similar...if you squint your eyes...kinda.
Captain John Price, for those who are wondering, is a computer game character. I know, I know. Not the most inspiring of people. But I love that quote. Especially the line "'Cause all you need to change the world is one good lie and a river of blood." Makes you think. Well, it made me think.
The idea that I had for that story is that the main character would be invited to work at Aperture Labs on GLaDOS, the incredibly smart AI from the game series. In Portal, the AI has already turned evil and gassed everyone in the building, with only one survivor (save those in the stasis chambers). I thought it would be fun to do a story before she turns crazy on the Bring your daughter to work day. Valve, the company that produced Portal, released a beautifully illustrated comic called Lab Rat which was like my idea, but much more refined and awesome and really quite beautiful and sketchy. I gave up on my FF shortly after :P
There's another story I want to put here, my Fallout 3 Fanfiction. I love the Fallout world because it's just so...cool! An apocalyptic USA with 40's style music, advertisements and places? A storyline so vast that it had an infinity of backstory to be filled in by others? Hell yeah!
The problem? It's not my franchise.
Ok, it's not a massive problem. But I love the idea of an apocalyptic world riddled with Nuclear Fallout and ticking Geiger counters. Does that make sense? Too bad! I have an idea for a comic/story/THING that I want to do in the near future and it uses some things from Fallout that I should probably edit so that it's not so much Fallout and a bit more original. The storyline that I've concocted is 100% me, but the setting is not quite. A world after a Nuclear War, underground Vaults to keep the human race surviving, hell, I might as well make it a fanfiction and be done with it. I know I'm rambling and not a lot of this paragraph makes sense, but it's better I told you all sooner rather than later.
This post has not been the best of posts. This has been because I was extremely sick over the last day or so. I'm feeling much better, but I'm just so hungry that it's not even funny XD And we have nothing to eat except yogurt and lollies, which I don't think my stomach can hold right now.
But hey! In, like, 8 hours I'll post again, with the third "Day of Christmas". So, like, look forward to that.
