From the bottom of my heart... by Steampunk-Girl From the bottom of my heart... by Steampunk-Girl
Happy Birthday, Eberhardt!

(Actually, his birthday was the 13th of August. I didn't have time to finish this until Christmas, though.)

(DOWNLOAD FOR FULL VIEW)

Eberhardt went through a heart attack last year's Christmas, and has been under the weather since then, to match my last semester at college. Still, I thought I could manage to go back to the TF2 rp at Tegakie, so I started looking for an excuse to put back Ebers into working order. "Meet the Medic" came out and it gave me the perfect idea.

In my headcanon (and kind of supported by the "Meet the" video) Übercharges are basically a huge rush of adrenaline. They still have the protective layer around the users who deploy and receive it, but it's impossible to deny how /excited/ everybody is when you receive an Über. You just want to jump head first in battle and devour the world. I imagined this meant the heart suffers a great exertion, and for a healthy heart that's just fine, however it gets more complicated for somebody with damaged tissue around the myocardium.

So I imagined Eberhardt's bosses (the true ones up at the CIA) needed him back into battle, and modified the device used by canon Medic to help teammates receive the first Übers. It's just for people with cardiac problems, so no need to operate all the members of both teams.

Eberhardt is quite resistent to anesthesia, due to him being used to great quantity of opiates and his body being kind of huge :T He wakes up... and who knows if he remembers what he saw or felt...

Done in tegaki. Modified a couple of things because I forgot the red smoke in some images.

Enjoy!

(god that was a longass comment)

Valve owns TF2 the game.
Jing and Zo own the TF2rp at tegakie
All the characters who appear here are from their respective owners.
Eberhardt, Beatrix and the doctor voices are mine.

It's more clear if you are part of the roleplay group. But long story short this character is getting a heart operation and this is some sort of "nightmare" he has while being operated. The last panels of dialogue suggest that the character woke up right before he was sewn up, but he still cannot distinguish between dream and reality.

To be honest, I don't think there is a real, unique reason as to why the characters are naked. A couple of them he knows how they look without their clothes. It was a mixture between me wanting to draw nude bodies and not wanting to associate the characters to their respective uniforms (spies, medics, etc). Eberhardt (the character) is mostly just seeing the faces he knows attached to nameless bodies.

Actually... it doesn't really make sense. I just thought estetically it would fit the sequence better :T.

Vas muy bien encaminada, uno de mis artistas favoritos es Jim Woodring, que tiene volúmenes enteros de historias sin palabra alguna y es fascinante, también se me viene a la cabeza Arzach de Moebius que es simplemente genial, y hace poco descubrí un carunista catalán, Joan Cornellá, que tiene una serie de strips mudos que son alucinantes. No es nada fácil contar una historia prescindiendo totalmente de diálogos.

That's...wow. That's a...I absolutely love it. TF2 as a subject matter...well handled, clever as hell. I'm trying to form a cohesive thought, but can't. That's how cool this is.

Kisses and head explosions FTW. That'll have to do.
