Hold Onto Me - SPOILERS by Caretaker-of-Myth Hold Onto Me - SPOILERS by Caretaker-of-Myth
Yeah, it's a spoiler, but at this point...It's been over a week, guys. You pretty much have no excuse.

This picture...represents probably the most powerful moment in a Let's Play that I've ever seen. I had to draw it. I had to see if I could get the emotions in it down. ~forte-girl7 (or on Youtube, theforte7, whose design I've used instead of Chell's there, and whose humanized version of Wheatley I have drawn), whose Let's Play that was, really made me (and from its comments, several others too) choke up at this bit, and I hope she doesn't mind me cathartically drawing it out.

Human Wheatley, whom I drew as a human partly for the emotional resonance of it and partly to spread the gospel of ~forte-girl7's human version of Wheatley through dA, is in his original garb, of course, because now he's not attached to the main body. Don't ask me how he changed in the interim.... SpaceCore is not human because forte-girl7 hasn't shown us a SpaceCore design yet.

Took a little artistic license with objects and viewpoint to make it more dramatic, including giving GLaDOS that extra hand; in the game she uses the same one to knock both the player and Wheatley away and then to catch you, which I think is too risky for GLaDOS to have actually done. Plus having her hover there makes her seem all the more evil and menacing argh

Character designs belong to ~forte-girl7.
Concept belongs to Valve, makers of Portal 2.
Drew everything but the starfield; that's credit to `budgie.

...I hope nobody thinks I'm a sadist for this >m>;;

Oh, because Wheatley's so mean! WHITELY IS ONLY THAT MEAN BECAUSE OF THE MACHINE!!! GladOS became nicer when she got out of it, and Wheatley hadn't completely adjusted so he was nice as soon as he unattached!!!

I genuinely think Wheatley isn't evil because if you notice, when GlaDOS or PotaDOS isn't hooked up to the main body, both seem to calm down and GlaDOS becomes quite decent, even if she still is a bit snarky :I

Maybe it's just the power and control that makes them act evil? I mean, that even happens to humans, so it's plausible.
