A very late Portal Secret Santa for unbadger! I went with the Burdal prompt since I love that AU. It’s just too wonderful!
And I don’t think I’ve seen a bird interpretation of WheatDOS yet, so I wanted to give it a shot. I chose a Brown Pelican because I believe Wheatley enjoys puffing out his pouch just like how the original in-game design had him puffing out like a pufferfish to express how massive he feels. Plus, a pelican would most likely fumble about with their webbed feet unlike the graceful secretary bird GLaDOS built for the job.
