--> '''Wheatley''': You've got the hole, and...obviously, can't actually ''eat'' it or anything, just want to point out that it's not that I don't like the look of it, it's just that, like I said before, I don't have the equipment to...

* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Wheatley's redemption comes at a hefty cost, but his courage to face death and separation from Chell wins the safety of Eaden. And thanks to Caroline, Wheatley is granted his original human body and a life with Chell, while GLaDOS gets to go on testing, far, far away from them.]]

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: This is not the fanfic for an interpretation of GLaDOS as in any way well-meaning or kindly disposed towards Chell. This GLaDOS is a pitiless monster, and the story makes clear that the redeeming qualities she showed in ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' were entirely thanks to Caroline, now deleted. Wheatley is shown in a sympathetic light, but with his many flaws thrown into stark relief.

** Caroline as well. It's pointed out that GLaDOS resulted in a psychopathic, homicidal, insane A.I. But they ''started'' with Caroline.

* TheWoobie: ''Wheatley,'' oh heavens ''Wheatley.'' Fresh from 300 years of entropy in Aperture Labs and four years in cripplingly boring orbit, he arrives in Eaden, set to fail at everything he sets his hand to, from making bread to just being a decent person. He's crippled with constant self-doubt and self-loathing, feels terribly out of place among humans, and his backstory reveals that [[spoiler: he was just an ordinary, perfectly innocent Aperture Science employee who was abducted, tortured, and then rendered immortal so the scientists could try and save their own skins -- ''and'' he was programmed to have terrible ideas and never recognize them as such.]] Profound Woobiedom.

** Chell, too, given how massively traumatized she is from the testing facility. Even four years later, she still has violent nightmares, plus it took her months to adapt to something resembling normalcy. [[spoiler: Then she gets dragged back There. Twice.]]

* RonTheDeathEater: GLaDOS is treated a lot less sympathetically than other fics here - it is mentioned that she spends a lot of time trying to eliminate Caroline from her systems, rejecting any humanity within her.

* AccidentalNightmareFuel: Take all the NightmareFuel of the previous VideoGame/{{Portal}} games and let it simmer gently in memory. Chell is in many ways a ShellShockedVeteran of the Testing Facility, still suffering severe PTSD.
