What DO you know about adults, anyway? When's the last time you saw an adult. Just so you know, we should not be counting ISLEI as an adult. Not that she's young or anything......is she?

Finally have a game completely ready. Wait a week before posting it out of laziness.

...->What if ISLEI WAS all the parents? They joined into her mainframe to make her more powerful/replace old bodies, and the only reason Laria was raised by ISLEI was to keep her sane, as insanity/unsocialness could cause bugs or poor performance? What if WE are the minds of the adults, and Laria's brainwaves, now ready to enter the mainframe, now synchronize with our own, allowing communication with her? We have no memory, as it's now ISLEI's memory/hard-drives/processors/etc.? Or...I could just be paranoid<-...

A new voice, this one far more monotone than the others, begins to drone.

"Generally, cake and insane AI tend to go hand in hand. Before you know it, you'll be flinging portals across your ship.

This hypothesis was brought to you by; an idiot.

Birthdays, and other supposedly happy celebrations, are the ideal time for an assault or some kind of disaster to happen that forever changes ones life.

This trope was brought to you by; the same idiot.

I suggest that you ask her if all is well, and then do not eat the cake.

Do not eat the cake.

"Do not eat the cake."

Eat the cake.

Remove the common sense particle from your brain, a la Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, then simultaneously do not eat the cake and eat the cake.

We're all terrible.

If you eat the cake, take very small bites slowly. Savor it while it lasts.

Don't eat the cake. If the insane person wants you to eat cake, DON'T do it.

While the cake is quite likely to put you to sleep and make you wake up somewhere to do grown-up things, like taking care of gardens or buying a sensible car, you should still eat it. If it does end up dangerous, We'll do our best to keep you safe.
Besides, we wouldn't want to insult ILSEI, she seems nice. In that, "I have taken care of you all your life, now I will be forced to put you in a wasteland or something silly" kind of way.

Huh??? Stalker-sense tingling! Since when did Spleens do anything but enable my drider addiction?

But I agree with everyone. We have a story about a cake and a friend with many similarities to ILSEI. It ended badly. But there is no reason to believe that this is going to end the same way. That is your special cake for your special day. You should enjoy it. Besides, if ILSEI wanted to drug you they could probably just seal you in there and suck the air out of the room. So there is no reason to doubt the cake. But still, no harm in being prepared, can your provide some mental markers? Things like how you would respond in a situation?

Umm, lets try these(note, completely random...)
What do your think about blue?
Would you rather lose an arm or have ILSEI vanish for a decade?
Do scarves suit you?
Which is more unnerving, tentacles that end in eyes or mouths? Why?
Immediately continue this sequence: one 2 brown, hyphen, blunt, cowl, ?
Mushrooms, yes or no? Why?

The monotone voice interrupts any response almost immediately.

"Agreed. The cake is a lie.

I like scarves.
"

It then promptly stops speaking.

You are allowed to have cake. I don't think that Robo-Nanny would wake you up just to kill you.
