GLaDOS's Lament Part XV

I worked too quickly.
Even I
Can err.
The speed of my modifications
Was not enough.
I sent her into a holding passage
Filled with
Realizing too late my
I heard the recordings
She was in the
Live-fire course.
I shut off the cameras
Unable to bear
The pain
Of losing another.
In sorrow
I toiled,
Perfecting my course.
Preventing all error.
Working in rhythm
With the tune
Of the gunfire.

GLaDOS's Lament Part XIV

She didn't speak.
She listened
And prepared.
I allowed her to advance
And play my game.
Her skill
Exceeded that of my projections.
The later chambers
Were constantly modified.
I added true danger.
Was the only threat
That challenged her.

Song of the Week 2: 'Legend of the Snake' by Reuben Kee

Song of the Week returns for the second time with another arrangement from OverClocked ReMix ( This one is from Metal Gear Solid, called Legend of the Snake, by Reuben Kee. Reuben Kee died in a boating accident only 2 months after I joined the OCR community on the forums ( ( He has some truely amazing music and excellent piano skills. The song page for this remix can be found at and to listen to this song go to I love the piano at the beginning and the intensity that builds into several recognizeable themes for those who've played Metal Gear Solid before. I have actually not played any Metal Gear games except for Metal Gear Solid Mobile on my cell phone. Still this remains an epic piece, another one of my favorites. Excellent stuff.

GLaDOS's Lament Part XIII

The girl awoke.
She rose
From the pod
To my faint music.
And waiting.
She was patient.
Content to wait.
Content to watch.
I had readied everything.
A course
Years in the making.
A game
I had created
For her.
I lacked patience.
I activated the Device.
I granted her freedom.
I spoke
And met my daughter
For the first time.

Okay, so as you might of read in the topic labled You Want Me to Post? I came up with something, yeah me, the person who is not insane, and has no good ideas that aren't serious actually came up with something to post every week. Since I absolutely love OCR, I've decided to post a few links related to a specific song on This selection is not random, I may use the Russian ReMix Roulette for help sometimes, but today that is not the case. Today's song is A Day In The Life Of A Gambler, by JigginJonT from Final Fantasy VI. The link for the song's page is and to listen to it (if you're lazy and you don't want to visit the song page) go to this link This is defenitely one of my favorites, excellent solo piano piece.

GLaDOS's Lament Part XII

Without maintenance
My outer sensors
I lost all contact
With the world.
A world that brought only
I decided
To wake the girl.
I opened her pod,
All the while
That it was best
That she have
No home to mourn.
It was best
That she have
No family
Out of love
I wiped her memory.
I filed it away.
I robbed her of
Out of love.

So You Want Me to Post?

Hey everybody! It's been a while hasn't it? And, as Reoganworks tradition seems to state, that means I have to promise to post regularly (And then fail to). However, this time it's completely different! 'How is it different Great and Powerful Reogan the Great,' you ask? Well this time it's interactive! I'm going to attempt to deliver features consistently on certain days. You may be wondering, 'What kind of features are they?' Well, I'm glad you asked! Remember Random Thoughts? Of course you don't! I haven't posted any in so long, everyone who's read them has died! So do yourselves a favor, and look up the Random Thoughts tag. You'll be glad you did.

Now, class, your homework is to post what kinds of features you'd like to see, and I'll pick what I like from them. I already intend to post the remainder of the Lament, once per week. But you tell me everything else. You could ask for more Random Thoughts. You could request A Day in the Life of a Necromancer. You may want me to continue the tale of Jacques Cousteau in I'd Recommend Leaving, or something of your own design, such as The Adventures of Reginald Gold, Billion-Heir Extraordinaire. You've got a week. Go.
