Thanks for doing all that, by the way.

So you haven't actually started writing the articles yet?

And yay to friends! ^^

No problem. Heh, I feel a bit bad for not having more.

Nope. I could get to doing that later. Perhaps on the weekend. I have a lot of homework to get done now, and I'll be busy at some school event for all of tomorrow.

Basically, try organizing the info into rough sections and - in those sections - try ordering them in a way that they sort of follow onto one another. Then put them into coherent sentences and paragraphs. ^^

Oh, and please don't forget about references. At the end of each point, put a number in square brackets (eg. "The aardvark likes pie. [12]"), and list them all at the end of the article, with each number being a reference (either a chapter in the book or a forum topic). For example:

[12] Book XI, Chapter 362
[13] "The Mushroom People's Role in the Colonization of Melontopia" - Topic on LiA Forums; [insert link to topic here]

Did that make sense? Of course, more than one point at very different places in the article can have the same reference, in which case they should get the same reference number.

Aha, okay. And yes, references. We've been doing a lot of that in school as of late. Makes perfect sense.

Well, you'll have to wait a bit longer 'cause of my school's bloody science fair. I'm surprised I'm not kicked out yet, but I'm sure I will be eventually. For now though I've got to complete my working model of George Bush's stomach. It even includes pictures of him everywhere. I'm totally taking the whole thing seriously.

Mhm. Basically, our experiment went something along the lines of this:

Purpose: To see if we can make a digestive system.
Hypothesis: We think we can.
Conclusion: We were wrong.

I expect an excellent mark. The bloody thing didn't even work.

I ended up getting kicked out the fair. Now I'm going to fail science with less than 40%, and the principle was making it seem as if I was going to get expelled, but that's for an entirely different reason altogether.

Oh, my partner for the project went and dumped hydrochloric acid into the sewer. Wasn't his fault. I mean, nobody told him it was a bad idea. The teacher just kind of gave us a cup of the stuff without telling us anything about how it could be dangerous, and didn't even offer us safety equipment.

Oh well. Then yesterday I decided to try to bike to a friends house. Took 6 hours. I accidentally ended up in America. 'Twas neat.

Oh gosh...


On yet another completely unrelated note that should probably be PM'ed or put in the off-topic section but we're too lazy to do either because of the tiny size of the list of this site's active members, do you have Portal 2? I finished the single player story (it was incredibly epic and took me two weeks (must find all Easter eggs)) and would now really like a partner for the multiplayer story...

Indeed I do. What's your Steam account? Multiplayer is fun.

TemporalV01D

AND YAY!!! Very Happy

Portal 2's storyline is epic. (As is its gameplay and its million Easter eggs.)

Portal 2 also implies that Half Life 3 (not Half Life 2: Episode 3, as they still have to explore the Borealis), will be set at least 20 years (the minimum estimated time Chell could have been in stasis between the first Portal ((which took place around the time of Half Life 2. Also, the first Half Life took place around the time GLaDOS locked off the Enrichment Centre from the outside world and killed (almost) everyone inside (AKA Bring Your Daughter to Work Day), implying that she may have done so to help Aperture (or at least the facility) survive the results of the Black Mesa incident)) and Portal 2 (which is anywhere between 20 and 200 years). Therefor, if could be assumed that whatever Gordon and the resistance team finds in the Borealis will somehow transport him/them to the time Chell left the Enrichment Centre for real (thus setting the start of Half Life 3), or that Gordon will return to stasis and reemerge in said time. Valve has also hinted at Portal 3 and Half Life 3 being the same game, which is why I have no choice but to speculate. However, my speculations will not be complete until I've finished the multiplayer story of Portal 2. ^^

Also, I have come up with my own theory for Chell's identity: She is the daughter of Caroline and Eli (Eli Vance from Half Life, who - it is speculated - may have worked for Aperture before becoming a Black Mesa employee). This was a very secret relationship and Caroline may have convinced Cave Johnson that it was his child. Thus resulting in Chell's legal surname being "Johnson" (hence why it was redacted from the records). Cave, however, would have died before Chell's birth (according to the timeline he must've been dead around that time as GLaDOS came online soon after to succeed him) and would thus never have noticed the race of the child (Chell is mixed, whereas Cave and Caroline were both (or at least appeared to be) Caucasian). However, considering Caroline was then forced to succeed Cave (and later have her consciousness transferred into GLaDOS), she could not keep the child and Chell was fostered by an Aperture employee (or employees, if Chell also had a (foster) mother. The potato battery exhibit in the daycare centre already confirmed that she at least had a father (whether biologically or not)). Then, the neurotoxin incident happened on Bring Your Daughter to Work Day (possibly as GLaDOS' reaction to the Black Mesa incident) and Chell (and possibly other Aperture children) was put in stasis*.

*She might not actually have been put in stasis between the neurotoxin incident and the first Portal game. She may have underwent other forms of Aperture testing throughout her captive life. Her seeming inability to speak may be attributed to this testing. Alternately, she may have woken with severe amnesia with no recollection of who she was or how she got there and may really have had an inability to speak...


Dammit, now I've lost my writer's block on things of no consequence. -_-
