my friend keeps saying glados is evil cause she wanted to kill us what do I do explain it to him? kill him? help

hoo boy this is my favorite topic actually

i dont think shes evil at all for what she did. GLaDOS has been abused a lot, from what happened with caroline, to being abused by the scientists, etc. shes developed a pretty unhealthy and detrimental fear of humans and being hurt again, which influences, well, all of her actions. especially the unpleasant ones. she kills off the scientists bc theres no other way out of the abuse. its evident in the first game that shes actually more scared of chell than anything. later on she keeps saying things like “this isnt brave, its murder. what did i ever do to you?” indicating that at first she genuinely doesnt even realize what shes done is wrong. her brain is that warped from trauma. she thinks shes protecting herself, and that chell just viciously murdered her for no reason. thats obviously not true, but in her mind, humans are cruel beings that just want to hurt her. that was her first impression of the world. its only in the 2nd game later on that she realizes chell was initially no threat. thats why she tries to help chell, to let her go, and says she hears the voice of her conscience. she realizes that had she never tried to hurt chell, chell wouldnt have hurt her.

now, none of it is ok. thats definitely for sure. but is it evil? no. if anything, its just really really sad. its sad that she hurt people and drove them away until she was all alone just because she was that afraid

katya talking about what it was like after trixie’s elimination [x]

Okay but here’s the thing about bodyswaps

It’s usually explicitly one’s consciousness or literal soul being switched around, right? It’s not your actual, physical brain and brain chemistry

So what if one person has clinical depression and the other doesn’t? Someone’s probably got ADHD, is on the autism spectrum, has OCD or anxiety or PTSD. And maybe some of that follows the original owner, because they’re used to dealing with in unconsciously, but whoever replaced them is getting the brunt of it

Focusing on the physical aspect of bodyswaps is cool and all but let’s see some more on the psychological too?

Me: Pedophilia is bad.

Tumblr: Yeah!! It shouldn’t exist. It hurts so many people.

Me: Pedophilic ships are bad.

Tumblr: Wait……….. no.. stop. Too far… What are you doing? No…… That’s… no… Just no. Stop… It isn’t real. It’s just fiction. Drawings can’t hurt anyone……. You’re overreacting… Stop…

so raishan mentioned in the pre-fight banter last episode that she wanted some powerful spellcasters. that (understandably given how shit went down) got pretty heavily glossed over, but guys. guys.

raishan wanted spellcasters to assist her in the ritual to become a dracolich
