for BADMACHINE

Hmn :/

BADMACHINE might try and claim it's godly and amazing and better than humanity all it wishes, but that doesn't change the fact it seems to be deriving some creepy kind of sadistic pleasure in killing humans and- quite frankly- it's being far, far more monstrous than any human being ever could.

that's the bad thing with having no emotions. you don't know when to quit XD

I hope this computer program learns a few lessons about how resiliant humans are and how much better it is when you do have feelings to base decisions on.

Plus, who's going to listen to the music when they're all /dead/? XD

I hope the other vocaloids come along and fight XP I can imagine Rin being all 'what, you didn't want to kill me? You think I'm not as popular as /Miku?/' and Len being all '...Rin, don't antagonize the evil killer robot, you idiot.' XD

Oh, one thing.

This computer really sounds a lot like Glados from Portal. It's... kind of... a little jarring, actually. I'm not sure why...

._.

It sounds way too emotional for somebody who claims to have no feelings, as well XD

what makes good people do bad things?

Hmnn.

I think my answer to this question would be ‘you take an innocent person, you abuse them, and then you give them power.’ That makes previously /good/ people do bad things- the world does. Other people do.

Hitler had all kinds of issues that stemmed from his father being rather abusive and terrifying, and then he went to war and must’ve seen a load of people get killed (and, apparently, although I’m not sure if this was true or not, he was bullied for being of a short stature and unattractive by the people in his /own/ squad when he was in the army. Idk if this is true or not but I’m getting my facts from Making History by Stephen Fry, which is /mostly/ historically accurate even if it a sci fi-ish novel XP)

So, basically

People feel bad about themselves - they pick on somebody weaker than them to make them feel better - the person weaker than them begins to get angry/violent - the weak person is given a position of power - they use this power to make others suffer as they themselves were made to suffer.

And so on and so forth.

Then again, nobody is truly ‘evil’. People can do terrible things, and even the nicest of people have bad qualities, but they generally have some goodness in them too otherwise nobody would have friends XD So it’s not all bad :D

Although, I’m sure some people are just inherently rather cruel and twisted- but this doesn’t make them any less human, and they would have some goodness in there somewhere. Maybe I’m being overly-optimistic XD

This is getting a little too Clockwork Orange for me now XDD I mean, I /loved/ Alex, and yet he was rapist and a murderer. The main theme of that book (my favourite book ^_^) was that you shouldn’t try and control people or force them to do good things for the sake of being good- because by forcing people to do good things you’re taking away their freedom of choice and their humanity.

Idk if you’ve read Clockwork Orange, but I /love/ that book :D

Despite their inherent ‘evil’ nature humans do create some very beautiful things though, and they can be kind and caring to eachtother ^_^ So it’s probably best to take the bad with the good and accept it, because it’s better having emotions than having none at all.

Hmn…

The portal reference really threw me there XD I was like ‘wait what you’re lifting your death threats from a video game? That’s kind of cheap’ and then I was like ‘ohhh… It’s a reference’ XDD

I like to think because Miku is also a robot she can ‘die’ by neurotoxin but she can just be restarted with an electrical impulse and she’ll be all ‘oh I had the strangest dream…’ when she comes to XD Or, being a robot, she might not necessarily have to breathe so she could just there and stubbornly outlast the robot.

…Actually I really want to write fic about that now, where Miku survives a sadistic robot trying to murder her by being really stubborn and /refusing/ to die…

That sounds like so much fun XDD

Robot: miku, the world is cruel and corrupt

Miku: Awww, you’re just jealous because I’m more famous than you!~

Robot: Miku, this is not a laughing matter.

Miku: I know. My popularity is always srs business.

Robot: I’m going to kill you.

Miku: GOOD LUCK!~ My songs will live forever in the hearts of my fans (and I have many, many fans!~) :D

Robot: …;A;

Miku: :D

I should write that now, just to make some nightmare retardant for this rather depressing fic XDD

Joking aside, this fic is rather epic-sounding XP

Jeez this is a HUGE review ;A;

Great work! Is this the last chapter? It feels kind of like a conclusion. Anyways, I like the ending of this chapter. It was sad and beautiful (two things that baddie cannot quite comprehend). When baddie said he wanted to "make a garden for her", it reminded me of the song "miniature garden girl". Also, was the first vocaloid Lola? Or was she someone else?

That sounded cute, but confusing at the same time. I mean, if that program was so... destructive, how did Tianhe live through it? Did BADMACHINE even scan those files to see if they were messed up? I mean, he's a supercomputer that took over the world. I bet he could do that. Still. It's hard not to pity him. Or her. Or it. Hm...

Hullo! Yay! A new chapter!

O_O

...Woah...

...Just, woah...

... That's it, isn't it? That's the end of the fic. Since it appears to be that way, I'm just going to say now that that was one of the most emotional and amazing and one of the BEST fanfics I've ever read. It's just... Woah. I can't even describe it, it's so good.

To put it simply, I loved it. Heck, I'm lovin' it right now. You DEFINATELY have a winner here. If there's anymore, please UPDATE SOON. PLEASE. It's just so freakin' GOOD.

Wow, after everything BADMACHINE's been through ... this has been so interesting.

Anticipating the next chapter and the epilogue ...

Just stunning. BADMACHINE has to be one of the best fanfictions I have ever read. The character development is fantastic, the logic is hard to beat, and just...wow. I'm speechless. It's just...amazing.
5/3/2011 c8 2CloudNineCuckoolander
... Wow. This is huge.

I read this in two sittings, and man, I couldn't wait to get home so I could get up to this point. BADMACHINE is such and interesting and definite character, and to see his development up to this point was surely a roller coaster ride! Just... wow. This is better than published stuff.

The only problem I have with this is the long paragraphs, which make it difficult to read at points, but that's probably just me reading epic sci-fi when I should have already gone to sleep.

Anyways, I can't wait until the next chapter... and to see where you'll end up here!

This...this...this...*faints*

*recovers*

I read all of this in one sitting, and I am just blown away. I am sure that this is of THE BEST fics on this site. A bit confusing, really, but one of THE BEST. This needs more reviews. Hell, it SHOULD get published.

I am now another faithful reader who is waiting for the inevitable conclusion.

Kudos.

For lack of a better phrase, Fucking A.

I am... almost squealing with delight. I can't believe I didn't look at the new chapter sooner.

BADMACHINE is so cute... I mean, he (I think)... might love Miku and he's going insane. He's even feeling guilty! Aw... He's such an adorable character...

Hullo! FINALLY a new chapter!

Yay, kitties! X3

O_o Yep, BADAMACHINE's gone off the deep end.

And now for more important things...

IIIIII KKNNEEEEWWW IIITTT!

I knew it I knew it I knew it I knew it I KNEW IT!

This story apparently IS based off of "Antichlorobenzen"!

BADMACHINE's logic is EXACTLY like the kind of logic Rin had in "Antichlorobenzene"; and as I said a long while back the story will probably end with BADMACHINE learning the same thing Rin learned in that song.

I don't really know how to word the rest of it... You basically get the idea.

U-Uwaah...

BADMACHINE is becoming more and more human with each day.

All the same, I would have enjoyed having a debate with it a few chapters back... The ultimate opponent in a debate, of course it would be a computer. Oh, well. I suppose it may have to suffice as a prompt for daydreams to dwell on.

I wonder, if he/it could, what would he/it daydream about? I seperate the terms 'daydream' and 'hallucinate,' mind you.

The kitten rant was a nice touch, might I add.

Wonderful chapter. I await the next.

D'awwww! The part with the kitties warmed my heart and made me laught a bit at the same time. It was so sad when Iroha and the cats died, though. Also, I noticed that one of BADMACHINE's records was called "Anomalies". Is that a shout-out to my fic?
