It first appeared on the Portal ''Portal'' kink meme as the first fill listed and has since continued for eighteen chapters running.

Over the course of their journey, Wheatley struggles to understand the propriety of personal boundaries and physical attraction, and Chell struggles with conflicted feelings of trust, wanting independence and craving intimacy with another human. GLaDOS does Her best to complicate things further in many manipulative and increasingly threatening ways.

In the short story prequel [[http://thepunishment.tumblr.com/post/7430283171/the-punishment-prequel-daisy Daisy]], Doug Rattmann meets Wheatley shortly after his mind had been transferred to the ID core. Wheatley still vaguely identifies as a living person and is frightened and confused by the change. To ease his pain, Rattmann erases all of Wheatley's remaining memories of being human.

Wheatley has been brought back from space by GLaDOS for an unspecified punishment. She informs him he used to be human though he has no memories of his existence before he was first activated as a core. After GLaDOS destroys his metal form, he awakes alone in a relaxation chamber in his old human body, confused and disoriented. After spending some time getting acquainted with the nuisances and more... ''enjoyable'' functions of his new organic form, he sets out to make his escape. He runs into Chell who has also been imprisoned once more by GLaDOS, and together they delve into Aperture to try to make their escape. Wheatley has no knowledge of proper human discourse, leading to many awkward situations.

Over the course of their journey, Wheatley struggles to understand the propriety of personal boundaries and physical attraction, and Chell struggles with conflicted feelings of trust, wanting independence and craving physical intimacy with another human. GLaDOS does Her best to complicate things further in many manipulative and increasingly threatening ways.

In the short story prequel [[http://thepunishment.tumblr.com/post/7430283171/the-punishment-prequel-daisy Daisy]], Doug Rattmann met Wheatley shortly after his mind had been transferred to the ID core. At that point Wheatley still vaguely identified as a living person and was frightened and confused by the change. To ease his pain, Rattmann erased all of Wheatley's remaining memories of being human.
