Back at the Baxter Building Reed Richards has been going over his latest calculations and other scientific formulas as an incoming message grabs his attention. Opening the message Reed sees that it's from Tony regarding the current situation and requesting his help.

"HERBIE I'll have to leave the lab Tony needs my assistance with a new situation you know where the rest of the team are encase of another situation." Reed says to hi A.I.

"Yes sir Mr. Richards as always I'll keep the lab safe so don't worry one bit." HERBIE says cheerfully as always.

After Reed leaves the building HERBIE goes back to what he usually does when he's alone. Deciding to take a break  he indulges in his favorite pass time of listening to music. Once he's brought up his playlist he starts playing his favorite song 'Still Alive'. Completely unknown to him the dangers that doing this would bring.

 This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Aperture Science:
We do what we must because we can
For the good of all of us
except for the ones who are dead

As the song begins changes are already occurring as most display monitors change to show an orange aperture logo. HERBIE is completely unaware that there's a new presence in the system.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake
You just keep on trying 'till you run out of cake
And the science gets done and you make a neat gun
For the people who are still alive

I'm not even angry
I'm being so sincere right now
Even though you broke my heart and killed me
And torn it pieces
And threw every piece into a fire
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data make a beautiful line
And we're out of beta, we're releasing on time
So I'm glad I got burned
Think of all the things we learned
For the people that are still alive

Fully absorbed in the song HERBIE hasn't noticed that the changes have also reached the outside as the holographic fantastic 4 logo has been replaced with a very ominous looking stylizes aperture.

Go ahead and leave me
I think I prefer to stay inside
Maybe you'll <a href="http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/p/portal/still_alive.html#" style="text-decoration:underline" title="Click to Continue > by safesaver">find someone</a> else to help you
Maybe Black Mesa
That was a joke, ha ha, fat chance
Anyway this cake is great, it's so delicious and moist

As the song reaches it's eventual end more changes progress as HERBIE is locked out of more and more of the system. Back in Reed's main lab the many mechanical arms work quickly to build GLaDOS' chassis.

Look at me still talking, when there's science to do
When I look out there it makes me glad I'm not you
I've experiments to run, there is research to be done
On the people who are still alive

The many mechanical arms finish putting together her chassis and having all of HERBIE's protocols and operations uploaded into GLaDOS.

And believe me I am still alive
I'm doing science and I'm still alive
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive
While you are dying I'll be still alive
And when you're dead I'll be still alive
STILL ALIVE
still alive

"Yes, yes I am." GLaDOS chuckled darkly fully online. "Now it's time for some science." Her singular orange eye looks overjoyed at the prospect of science.

So had a thought, What if Robin 2 (Jason Todd) was Jennifer Todd but was still a Robin and not a Batgirl?

GAV, I loved your chapters. The storyline has a lot of potential. As for ruleradvent's addition, I'm confused. Don't get me wrong, it was well written but it doesn't seem to flow from the other chapters. Am I missing something?

Any feed back is welcome.

Phew... Been a while. Let me know if anyone wants to add or give feedback.

No prob ESchorcho - just laying out some options for where things could go next. I hope you get time to write something soon. :)

Thanks for adding to the Mephisto storyline, exidor455 and great work! I'll try to work on chapters coming up here. I've been pretty busy recently but will try to write something for it.

I'm having a go at getting SSSL/Mephisto moving again. :)

@King :) Everything works here (execpt the Homepage itself^^) The only wish i had would be a writer that puts some effort into the Story. Background length character depth and so on :)

Sorry Ruleradvent, I was a bit shitty there. But I hate non-chapters. If you're going to write something, write something. :)
