Hey Arnold - Umbrella by Irrel Hey Arnold - Umbrella by Irrel
The other day I thought to myself "Huh, I haven't read Hey Arnold fic in about 7 years, I should go read one" and now I'm obsessed. Arnold/Helga is one of my favorite ships ever!

This fanart was inspired by the episode Helga on the Couch. If you've seen it, you'll get the umbrella reference :)

I'm mostly reading Helga/Arnold fics that are about them in High School so I had to draw them as teenagers. Arnold was very hard to draw (must be the football head!) but I wanted to draw them as much in my style as I could.

I've noticed that the AU is totally indirectly inspired by Hey Arnold...

And everybody should go read this fic RIGHT NOW. (And if you have any recs, I'd love to read them!)

Awww, Arnold still holds his umbrella over her at this age. I love Arnold/Helga, and the creator has said that they will, ultimately, become a couple, get married and have kids.

THAT HAPPENED TO ME. Except...I had never read it. And now it's like 10 years later and I'm in med school, and I became obsessed out of the blue. WHAT IS MY LIFE?

...also, I just...love this. It's so cute, and it captures an unexpected, characteristic kind of moment so very well. <3 It's adorable!

This is so weird, but I totally read HA fanfics because I miss the show sooo much (hells yeah it's on Netflix Instant Watch!), and Helga on the Couch is easily my all time favorite episode.

If you haven't already, you should definitely read [link] "Arnold's Couch Confessions," which is such a great fanfic taken from Arnold's perspective.

Anyway, this is a great deviation! :D

Helga looks great! Well I mean the whole picture is very well drawn, but especially Helga lol
Also, Helga on the couch is a freakin' awesome episode... but you should re-watch it (as I recently did on Netflix) and then immediately read this fanfic: [link] . Great stuff!

Oh and once again, awesome work!

That was one of the sweetest moments I have ever seen in childhood history. It doesn't matter if it's a cartoon. It is a very rare that a boy is that sweet let alone at that age. I love it! Awesome job! It's almost like he is reminding her of what an awesome boy he was when they were younger and they are in high school now.
