…has caused a lot of feelings and emotional devastation, based on what I’ve read on Tumblr in the last couple weeks. I remember thinking it was a neat idea when I was first told about the reprise, but I had no idea the effect it would have.
I’d like to make it up to you, fans of Portal 2: The (Unauthorized) Musical, so that the healing may begin…
"HO HO FREAKING HO! MERRY CHRISTMAS, YOU HORRIBLE PERSON! NOW, BE A NAUGH-/GOOD/ LITTLE BOY AND TELL SANTA CORE WHAT USELESS JUNK YOU WANT!" (Sorry Santa Core is probably gonna give you coal regardless...just a heads up...)
I was listening to Suddenly Wheatley again the other day for actually the
first time in a while, and I have to say, one of the things I love most
about it is how Wheatley’s part all but revolves around how genuinely devoted to
Chell he feels right now.
-“You’ve given me purpose, I know what I’m for”
-“I used to guard humans, but now I will guide you”
-“Wheatley’s your core” (x2)
-“It’s what I’m for!” <— (After Chell’s line about him guiding her through this floor)
-“Right by your side, dear”
Like? Idk, I just can’t get over how he’s basically saying that he considers helping Chell to be what he was made for.
core, who it’s implied has literally forgotten (or was just plain never
told) what his actual purpose was supposed to be, believes he has
finally found it in simply helping this one amazing individual win the freedom she deserves. Hoping also that perhaps he can share in that freedom as well.
It’s so pure, I tell ya! ;w; Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside every time~.
