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? ;-)

Just wanted to say that my friend who is new to the fandom (and sTILL HASN'T READ BLUE SKY NO MATTER HOW MUCH I TELL HER TO) thought Kevin was the canon name for the space core! Just shows what a simple (and amazing) fanfic can do to a fandom :)

AWESOME :D

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?

Signal boost!

So I just finished reading Blue Sky by Waffles and, uh

Wow.

Boy oh boy do I regret not having read this when I saw the Portal 2 fandom drawing stuff for it. You guys were right on the money. It has been a very long time since I have been completely and utterly engaged in a multi-chapter fan fiction to the point where I’m thinking about it before going to sleep or going to run errands. I love it. I would not have expected to fall in love with a Portal 2 fanfic where Chell could talk, but I did. Your fandom is very lucky to have a work as enjoyable and well-crafted as this story.

I am very picky when it comes to fic, and I cannot stop saying good things about it. Easily well on my top five favorite fics ever, if not very close to bumping off the current fic in the number one spot.

If you have not read it already, and you’re not averse to a dash of Chell/Wheatley with some android Wheatley, I would highly recommend it. Hell, if you’ve played Portal 2, but don’t really read much fic, you owe it to yourself to check it out. You might just enjoy it.

I’m almost a bit sad to have finished it, as it’s been occupying quite a bit of these last two or three days going through it. 

Check it out. You’ll be glad you did.

Absolutely 100% agree :)

OPEN CASTING FOR ROLE OF AARON HALIFAX

podsky:

Hello everyone!

It seems that due to circumstances beyond his control, our current Aaron Halifax has had to bow out of the project.  As we have reached chapter 2 however, we are in DESPERATE NEED of an Aaron in order to move forward!

So we’re reopening casting for this character.  If you feel that you can pull off the role of a tall, powerful, grizzle-haired man of about fifty with a lined, no-nonsense face and craggy brows that suggest that here is a man it would be better to have as a friend than an enemy, please send us an audition tape!  Here’s a batch of lines for you to read in any such audition (I left a bit of narration for the sake of direction, but please just read the dialogue):

"Well, I better get hoofin’.  Store won’t open itself.  See you later, Mystery Girl.  Hey," he added, pausing, "you see that shooting star this morning?  Came right down over the northeast fields just before dawn.  Coulda knocked a vort’s eye out- brightest thing you ever saw.  Good omen, huh?"

"Well, if Mystery Girl says it can keep till tomorrow, it can keep till tomorrow," said Aaron easily. "I got to get back, anyhow, before Garret brings the place down round his ears.  Thinks he can rig up some new kind of relay to fix all the signal problems he’s been having, which is great, ‘cept he’s turning the whole damn stockroom on its head to do it.  I don’t understand half of what’s coming out of that kid’s mouth these days."

"You know, moment I set eyes on him, I thought he reminded me of someone. Took me till just now to place it." His eyes stayed on her, kindly, concerned.  "Someone I met ‘bout four years ago now.  Just walked into town one day out of nowhere, just like that.  Jumping at shadows, looking at every little thing like they’d never seen the like of it before, like any second they were going to wake up and find themselves somewhere else.  Somewhere they weren’t too partial to, either.  Now, that someone… she was strong, and she got better.  Him, though… Kind of squirrelly, isn’t he?"

Signal boost!

Chapter 14 - The Terrible Idea

Look at the beautiful combination of apprehension and determination on her face. Fantastic. 

pizza-soup:

Very quick thing for Foxglove. <3 


#she always looks like she’s bathing in sunlight#and then i realise it’s because the device she’s in sort of depends on that#another interesting note is her eye colors are exactly that of wheatfields and blue skies#the copper rust of her hair is her physical frame work#the freckles are the exact type you find on her namesake’s flower

Definitely keeping those informative tags, Chelley ;-)
