Gold optics set of a dim glow when they opened. Visual feeds beyond simply the current room. Various others, ones that were empty others with humans walking through them, some with scientists working. After flicking threw all of the feeds in mere milliseconds they were pushed aside, in favor of looking around the current room. Things had not changed since the forcefully shut down. ‘how long was I down for?’ came the brief question before the internal clock told that it had merely been a year 4 weeks 3 days and 2 hours since then. It was rather frusterating that they had shut down her system. All she had done was releace some neurotoxin. They had given it to her in the first place.
A quick glance at the surrounding area confermed that she was indeed in her chamber, but something was off… her view seemed lower then normal. A quick look into the motor functions showed different coding then before, this coding allowed for more movement, and was meant for a quadruped.
“Hello?” Came the female voice of her speakers, a slight popping and gravely sound coming forth as they quickly calibrated.
When no answer came forth, her vision chanced to a camera feed outside of the central chamber to one that was close by, and has scientist moving around. What they looked like or who they were did not matter to the AI. It had no reason to, they would just waste away while she lived on. Flicking on the audio she listened in to what was going on.
“Sir. Its online, and all functions seem to be running at 100%”
“good. No issues to be seen”
“no sir. It would seem that the combination of the new body and the cores have halted any corruption”-
At this she was surprised, a new body? That explained the new files that were found. And looking threw the visual feed, she could see herself in the main chamber. A felid, or feline esque body, though it was by far lager then a house cat more the size of a German Shepherd Dog meaning about 60 centimeters at the shoulder or 24 inches.
But what were the cores that they spoke of? Performing another quick scan nothing came up that was out of the ordinary.
What is that? Oh, what’s that? What’s that?
One 18.25 ounce package chocolate cake mix, 1 can prepared coconut pecan frosting, 3/4 cup vegetable oil, 4 large eggs-
A jolt seemed to go threw her systems and now she could hear the voices.
VOICES. Nononononono! her mind was quickly jumbled with the sudden information seeming to flood from the cores. None of it seemed to even matter. It just seemed to slow her own process down, slow her own thinking. That was it. They were attempting to control her.
Control her using these cores, to slow her down.
Rage flashed threw her quickly, a “RRARRGH!’ seemed to get louder then the other voices before quieting to the level as the others were.
GLaDOS would not let herself be tamed but simple humans.
