" I know you were eager to fix up Fox’s broken antenna, but I don’t think she’d be thrilled to find you needed fixing up afterward." said Chell, as she playfully stuck a bandage on the injured inventor’s cheek.
She did have to admire his dedication to Foxglove though, his care and maintenance at times seemed to border on love. Something she could relate to with her own special A.I.
*Pokes head in* Erm, hey all. ^.^ ‘Kay, so, after having read Blue Sky for like maybe the eleventh time now (shoot, I should go for twelve just to be even, right? Yeah, that’s a good excuse :3), I’ve been lurking around this awesome little blog for a while, just looking at all the brazilliant Portal/Blue Sky things in this fandom.
This blog is where I get my daily dose of totally sweet and cute and feels and gah, and I wanted to say how beautiful it is that Blue Sky exists, being perhaps the BEST fanfic I’ve read ever as of yet, and how cool it is that this group exists too. ^.^ Words can’t express better what others have said.
So I’m gonna leave this little Blue-Sky inspired drabble I wrote here as a token of my hello, and hope it’s okay that I built a little teeny bucket-castle in the great Waffles’ Portal 2 sandbox. ^.^; Had fun writing it; I thought Wheatley’s dialogue was gonna be tough, but my own head has kinda the same stream-of-consciousness process sometimes, without the mouth. XD
So yeah, greetings, enjoy, I’ll be around. ^.^
Hello and welcome to the support group! Thank you so much for your kind words about the blog, it makes me wonderfully happy to share all the incredible fanworks this marvellous fandom creates :)
The enduring (and endearing!) power of Blue Sky is an incredible thing, isn’t it :D
Not quite happy with the colors and values just yet, but I’m proud of the progress I’ve made in one day. Thoughts for improvement and critique are appreciated, because I’ve been having a helluva time with this side project. Had to completely revise it from the original version because I couldn’t make it work!
UPPERS YOU SUPER STAR Thank you for doing this!
I like having the chapter title on the jar labels a lot, but otherwise I’m afraid I don’t have anything else productive to say - artists of our wonderful fandom, what do you think? :)
Remember when I was talking about doing some Blue Sky typography quotes? Well, I made a few using Notegraphy. Sadly, the app will crop them if I save them to my camera roll, but if I export them directly from it then it will post them straight to Tumblr without letting me add any commentary nor tags, so, in the end I decided to use the cropped versions. *sigh*
The first one is one of my favorites lines of the whole story; the Oracle Turret told the heroes everything they needed to know, everything that was going to happen, just as it did in the game, but its advice was dismissed as nonsense babble from a barely sentient machine. You can’t help but wonder, how did it know, where did it learn all that information? Kinda wished we saw a bit more of the Oracle Turret, but on the other hand, maybe it was better it remained a character shrouded in mystery.
I won’t go into detail about the other two (I could go for another two or three paragraphs on what is an already long post), but I think their meaning are pretty much clear on their own.
This story has so many memorable quotes and passages, it’s wonderful :)
You guys did think I would actually stop drawing these two did ya? :3
These are fantastic! I especially like Wheatley’s little heart face and WELP shrug, and Chell’s gentle smile and concentrated determination. Don’t ever stop, okay? ;-)
Reading Blue Sky like,
Don’t we know it ;-)
I just finished Blue Sky (the Portal fanfic)
I’ll just go cry in a corner now
Never fear friend, the Blue Sky Support Group is here to help! Come join us, your feels are welcome here :)
Sorry for the repost on some of these :P I’ve worked up a nice template for these and am planning to do at least 5 from every chapter. All backgrounds are either public domain images or taken from the game. Also don’t hesitate to send me quote suggestions if you guys still have any :)
Wow, hard to pick just one! All of them have a special significance and the design is so pleasing to the eyes. :)
Fantastic use of proportion and design, and of course the quotes are just brazilliant! WOOOOO :D
Chapter 15: The End
There were a lot of things I could have done for this chapter, but since day one, when I first read Chapter 15, this image has always been in the back of my mind.
Wheatley was willing to die to save the one he loved and now that she was safe, he could fade away in peace. It amazed me that this character who previously would do anything to save his own hardlight skin would be willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice. I supposed that’s what true love is really: selflessness.
"The memories were warm. They almost burned- nearly too much, comforting heat against frostbite- but it was worth it. It had all been worth it. Upturned faces and bright patchwork signals, the smell of new bread, stars and long grass and her, just her, a scary-brilliant universal constant, a sun-through-panels smile, laughter he’d give anything for…”
Hello my fellow Blue Sky fans :D
So I’ve been doing a typography series of my favorite quotes from the Twelfth Doctor from the current season of Doctor Who. firiami suggested the brilliant idea of doing a Blue Sky typography series. Just wanted to see if anybody wanted to suggest any of their favorites. I can’t guarantee that I’ll do them all, but I just thought I’d ask. Any takers?
THIS IS ADORABLE :D
