And what if your mind played a trick on you again during replaying the things on the video camera?

I can just pause it and re-watch it anytime.

"Psst. Pssssst. Snippy."

Snippy aimplessly wanders through the old abandoned hotel and reaches the end of a dark hallway, finding nothing but empty closets and more trappy holes in the floor.

"Damn, if only they would have stored some fresh bottled water here…"

"Psst. Pssssst. Snippy," sounds a clear familiar voice.

"What-what? Did you just…?" he splutters in confusion and fishes the pen out of his pocket. “Did you just talk again…? Or was that my imaginative mind thinking out loud, like so many times before? You know, long solitary moments of silence tend to become rather delusive sometimes. If I had a functional video camera I’d actually record myself every wake moment, maybe even when I sleep, just to make sure that all those things I’m seeing and hearing are actually real. But before I would be lucky enough to make such a find I’d probably encounter an unicorn.”

You might be a walking shell of alien slime freakishly disguised in the shell of your former self, but you're still adorable, and I love you.

Snippy squats hidden in a dark corner of the abandoned building, trembling, sniffing. Startled by a sudden voice, he looks up and glances around, spotting its source in a gap on the ground close by: A frosted quill, laying not far from a broken table.

"Thanks, elegant writing utensil endowed with artificial intelligence and a speaker", Snippy tells it quickly. “I appreciate your kind words.”

The quill doesn’t say anything back, and Snippy starts to feel awkward ever having started a conversation with a pen. He picks it up, inspecting it from every side, shakes it, and even tries to write on the broken table with it. Sadly it’s out if ink, and he doubts there is any left in this room.

"Hey, uhm… quill?"

For a moment he wonders if the quill can even hear him, but eventually he can’t bother to care anymore and just decides to leave the question unanswered.

"By the way… I wasn’t sobbing there earlier, or anything."

Well, considering the fact that your gub only fires the orange portal, the one with YOUR colour and the other portal should blue which is, as you might remember SNIPPY's colour. One could come to some conclusion....

Yeah… I wonder if we could trick it by switching goggles.

ask-irl-snippy:

Yeah, go on and take off your goggles. See how long you can last without them before your skin starts to melt from your face.

Also, you’re not getting mine, as they seem permanently attached to my face now, so forget about it.

Oh, right. I almost forgot that now you’re a walking sack of alien slime freakishly disguised in the shell of your former self. Apologies.

T-t-that was…

I… Ugh…

*turns around and runs away*

I hate to tell you engie but your port-gun only fire the orange portal....
A reply from ask-irl-engie

I noticed. I want to try it out anyway to see if the linking gate is out there somewhere, but… What if it is? Just think about where it could lead… and what could come through it.

Ehhh…

I’m still tempted.

ask-irl-snippy:

Hey, I’m sure you just don’t know how to handle it. After all, I’m the expert in guns here. Here, let me take a look at it.

*snags the portal gun away from Engie*

Hmm… Now where’s the trigger to- WHOA!

Well this is odd. It can shoot blue holes into the wall, but only one can be present at a time.

Uhm, I have to admit I’m a bit lost right now, and this is not what I expected it to do.

Care to explain, Gromov?

You probably broke it! It’s not that kind of gun, you dolt! *Engie snatches the device back and notices its lights flicker from blue to orange*

Hey, wait a minute…

You’re right! I- I seriously don’t know why it’s… it’s… How?! Now I’m freaked out. And intrigued.

*he inspects the device and notices text engraved on the inside*

"COOPERATIVE TESTING INITIATIVE, MODEL 2." That explains it. Sort of. Now we know its gates don’t link because it’s part of a set, but as for the colors fluctuating? Your guess is as good as mine.

Well, where did you find it? I’m sure MODEL 1 can’t be far from that place. Now you got me interested, so I suggest we go check it out together. Shall we?

ask-irl-engie:

Yesterday I reminded Snippy that he still owes me a shirt.

Today he gave me this.

It suits you. *tries to suppress his laughing and snorts*

sol4rplexus:

New journal is up!

Ps: Butts.

ask-irl-engie:

"Very good! You are now in possession of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. With it, you can create your own portals."

And prank Snippy.

… I don’t know what you’re planning to do with this thing but I don’t like the way you stare at me from that couch you’re sitting on, like a lurking cat waiting for its prey to be distracted just for a moment.

ask-irl-engie:

Sharply dressed, by request. Office clothes are surprisingly scarce around here, so a shirt from the bus stop mannequin’s wardrobe and my old work tie will have to suffice.

Ooohh I didn’t know we’re going on a date tonight?

ask-irl-engie replied to your post “Can we now call you “Juicy Pants” instead of snippy or Charles?”

Let’s not forget “Mr. Sausage.” Ahahaha!!

Yeah… it’s pretty ironic that my pants are merged with my skin now.

The Princess and the Dork by Sol4rpleXus

…in which Engie is the princess and Snippy is her lovely dork.

How many times do I have to say it? NO.

dillyfirestarter:

I want everyone to take a brief moment while reading the latest strip to properly appreciate Engie’s package.
