* [[ActorAllusion Actress Allusion]]: Caroline's last name was never given in the game, but this story mentions it as [=McLain=], the same as her voice actress.



* {{Jossed}}: The first chapter now has a note explaining how it was written before Derpy became canon.



* PromotedFanboy: One of the team members of the Portal Mod team came on board this way. [[NeverLiveItDown You can tell from the comments he left before he joined...]]

The story picks up where the single-player campaign of ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' ends, with Chell on the surface wondering what comes next and GLaDOS prepping Atlas and P-Body for co-op testing. Unfortunately, a malfunctioning portal gun (which Wheatley had [[DuctTapeForEverything previously "repaired" with duct tape]]) creates an "uber-portal" that pulls the entire Enrichment Center, Chell included, into another dimension... namely, Equestria.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [=GLaDOS=] continues to demonstrate she learns from her mistakes. [[spoiler:By the time Chell finds her, she's transplanted her main consciousness into a wireless remote body based on Celestia, so Caroline replacing her main body does nothing until the wireless body is shut down and control is diverted. Furthermore, the alicorn body [=GLaDOS=] builds is armored, has on-board weapons, and being a robot is more than capable of killing Chell or any other pony by brute force. Relying on weapons directly connected to her body also makes it more difficult for Chell to turn her weapons against her.]]
