That's What I'm Counting On by Starlit-Sorceress That's What I'm Counting On by Starlit-Sorceress
A Portal 2 inspired necklace for the days you feel vindictive enough to lie about cake.

$24

Starlit Sorceress Jewelry

Check out my website for details: [link]
+Watch me to see my new designs as they come out [link]

Silvered copper wire, enameled aluminum wire, and glass gems. A little over two inches long.

Inspired by GLaDOS
[link] and the lovely Portal 2 credits song, "Want You Gone" by Jonathan Coulton.

I used to want you dead but
Now I only want you gone


I wanted to post more quotes, but mere words on a screen won't do them justice!
Check the whole song out on YouTube in HD!
[link]

I haven't played either Portal game, but I love both credits songs!

I like this song because the way I interpret it, it tells the tale of a shaky, bitter truce offered by an intelligent villain who knows when she's beaten, and isn't stupid enough to fight to the death.

********
Yes. That is real cake. It's so delicious and moist!

Copy/pasted from my artist's comments: "Inspired by GLaDOS [link] and the lovely Portal 2 credits song! [link] ("Want You Gone" by Jonathan Coulton)

I essentially took the concept of GLaDOS and turned it into a pendant. It has the shining red and blue "lights", the silvery casing, the black cables everywhere, and is a bit asymmetrical in just the right way.

That's so delicious adorable. <3 It really has a GLaDOS-y quality about it; I'd say it's the wires. I'd wear it forever. :meow:

On the wires...I'm always either loving how cable-like they look, or sighing over how overkill they look. Thanks for your comment!

(I've been wearing it pretty much constantly since I made it over 24 hours ago, so yes, I'd agree with you!)

Really nice jewellery. Just have to point out though...

"it tells the tale of a shaky, bitter truce offered by an intelligent villain"

not so. At all. I'm not going into the actual meaning, because I'm not a fan of spoilers, but I can't see how it even looks like a truce at all. I understand that it might be harder to get if you don't know the plot of the game... but "villain", "truce" and "bitter" are all completely wrong.

I don't know what happened in the game. I'm just going off of the lyrics, the tone, and what little I know of GLaDOS's personality. I wrote the piece on what the song means to me, not what the song was intended to mean.

It reminds me of a story I read where a girl was walking through a swamp and got attacked by a huge snake. After almost getting strangled and drowned, she finally reached her knife, and gently poked it at the snake's neck while staring it intently in the eyes. The snake froze, slowly uncoiled itself, and swam away. It no longer wanted her dead--now it just wanted her gone...but it was a little regretful and bitter about it.

I understand how you could have mistaken it, I really do. Thing is, the song is actually even deeper than you took it, as her personality is. If you don't intend to play the game, you should read up on the plot, to see what actually happened as i think it would make you like the song even more (it's slightly heartbreaking).

Beautiful~ You should really play the game! Sad if I had known you earlier I could've told you about the deal steam had for Portal. They were giving it out for free ;-; But it is a game worth owning, and honestly they outdid themselves on the sequel.
