A different take on the daughter theory

This anon found the following on TV Tropes' Wild Mass Guessing page:
"GLaDOS considers herself to be Chell's mother. GLaDOS is prone to alternating between maternal praise and less-than-maternal punishment. GLaDOS may have decided a long time ago that the problem with the Portals technology was not the tech itself, but rather, its users. The solution? Bring in a crop of kids ("Bring your daughter to work day...) put them in cold sleep, then gas all the people working in the facility. A trial run of this last step didn't work out, but it turned out that GLaDOS didn't need to do that after all, since eventually, something happened outside, leaving GLaDOS to begin her biological experiment: Raise a human being who could "Think with Portals" perfectly. Chell is the end result of this experiment and, as a result, GLaDOS is rather fond of a passive aggressive sort of way."

Given that this anon is rather fond of the above theory (it explains the lyrics of the Turret Opera while avoiding the timeline issues associated with the more literal theory) they would like to see a fic based on it.
