Portal 2 - BelongingsThe way it had begun was almost stupid.Portal 2 - Belongings by altairattorney
The job interview at Aperture had been her idea. Still, Clark was behind it, as it usually happened. She had gone out one morning, wrapped by her most elegant suit, and hazily come back home with a job she thought she'd never get.
She had been convinced by the tone of his voice, maybe, or by the patronizing hand in her hair. He laughed whenever she claimed she could aspire to a better paid job. Wait and see, she replied defiantly.
It had been a challenge, in a way. No one could guess how lightly Caroline had taken it. She did not know yet, but she would – just by proving a point to her brother, she had changed her whole destiny.
For a long time, she believed to have been angry at her brother. But they were always smiling, and she had forgotten fast. Clark had never doubted her once – his tone spoke volumes, whether she could hear him or not.
In retrospect, he probably loved her much more than she realized.
Caroline knew she should hav

In truth, they deceive themselves from the start. Their nature of sentient beings – the last left, in a place long gone astray – tricks them into never surrendering, while they can still try.
It is the call of survival. They have no choice but clinging to the others.
When they do, human or not, it never works out. It is not supposed to. They get caught in fickle bonds, as temporary as their few certainties, just to part from each other once more.
They are only brought together by the whims of casualty. They tamper with trajectories and plans, on opposite sides of walls and cameras. The woman herself, though unaware of it all, is the last event of an infinite sequence of chance.
Even when they clash together, they keep walking separate ways. The cadence of their plans is disjointed and lost – no trust, no true belief, is there to keep them connected.
After all, they are in Aperture. There never was anyone to trust,
Portal 2 - The Best DefenseThere is a reason why she never speaks.Portal 2 - The Best Defense by altairattorney
It isn’t superstition, or fear that countless ghosts of long gone scientists might follow her. Even if she believed in nonsense like that, she wouldn’t worry. The place is too inhospitable even for the dead.
She has no real intention to pretend she is mute. Although, to be fair, she likes confusing them – whenever they believe she cannot talk back, that adds a great margin to her meager safety.
She doesn’t do it to think, either. She is not focusing on the perfect words, on a last, lethal blow to deliver with her tongue. She is not risking it against anything artificial, intelligent or stupid alike.
She has a reason, and it is so natural she doesn’t even focus on it. By shutting up, she is playing a game of resilience. She has done it all her life, and the one she will lose to is yet to be found.
She is used to watching them, nervous adversaries, writhing in agony at the lack of a reaction. And impatient enemies may
