This past weekend at the GaymerX voice over panel, Bosses of Honor Ellen McClain (GLaDOS from Portal) and her husband Johny Patrick Lowry (Sniper from Team Fortress) surprised everyone with a special ‘Still Alive’ singalong. But after wrapping up the song McClain brought up a special guest from the audience to help her share some brand new lyrics.

The surprise comes at the 5:00 mark. Get your tissues ready, because the entire ballroom was in tears.

That’s right, GLaDOS herself helped one gaymer propose to his longtime boyfriend. Chris was the winner of a GaymerX Kickstarter prize to have Ellen McClain do a special voice recording of his choice. Long thinking about proposing to his Belgian boyfriend Koen, Chris brought up the possibility of doing a live proposal at GaymerX itself, and both the staff and McClain were eager to help him pop the question Portal style. He even brought a Portal gun, a Chell uniform, and a Companion Cube engagement ring box.
And he said yes.

    I love that they happen to be wearing Blue and Orange too. I know that Chris was dressed like Chell, but Koen might have been just wearing blue as a coincidence.

    I didn’t think I would be in tears, but when Ellen started singing those new lyrics, suddenly tears sprang forth from my eyes unbidden!

    What a beautiful surprise! I’m sure it’s the start of a beautiful life together.
