long aperture

Because there seems to be a lot of disappointment lately in the Portal fandom for smaller works, let’s make a list of all the amazing works that need more recognition around here

For starters, we have one of the longest and oldest fics around that even though won’t ever be finished still holds a wonderful place in many of our hearts, Sing Nightingale by @vargrimar

We have the amazing continuous project for TWO YEARS NOW, Pieces by @portalpanda

We have all of the incredibly well thought out and interesting aus and character designs by @mainframe (if someone else could come in and tag them that would be great)

There’s the ongoing longfic that explores so much of Aperture’s history and starting of events into the Portal games, Redemption by @silverstreams

There’s the recent longfic that has just started - not to mention all of the other incredible works - A Trusted Friend in Science by @sweet-christabel

We have the incredible amounts of fanart and fanwork by @silversatori who I am awful and cannot remember the name of their fanfic but it’s an incredible piece of work about Aperture Tag

There’s all of the AMAZING fanart by @emmys-sketchbook that honestly blows my mind every time I see it

There’s of course @wheaterz and all of their fanart that never ceases to amaze me and their longfic for Portal Stories: Mel, Testing Maintenance

There’s everything @wheatlev has literally ever done for this fandom, which ranges from shitposts to high quality art and general wonderfulness to be around

There’s @ouroborosasunder who does INCREDIBLE FANART and even a really great fanfic that highly needs more appreciation but I’m a loser and forgot the name as well (i’m sorry i’m really bad with names)

There’s @hex-101 and everything they do with photo editing and shitposts and roleplaying and THEIR COSPLAYS MAN I can’t get enough!

There’s also @elvenwhovian who makes SO MUCH FANART and so many stories and aus and are just an incredibly sweet person in general

I’m not even getting into the rp fandom yet but we’ve got some great ones including @jumpsuitedmonster who also does great art and au ideas along with @apertureratt who man let me tell you their writing is incredible and so are their aus!

There’s also @formermoron who does a really great amount of work with character building and genderswapped characters and is just a great person to be around all the time!

There’s @spider-mum who is ALWAYS THE SWEETEST PERSON EVER I can’t even explain how much their support means to me and everyone else around here!

And of course all of the wonderful fanworks and headcanons and thoughts posts by the incredibly talented @babycharmander​! Really their fics are all stellar!

Oh man there are so many more people I can’t remember them all but I just want it to be known that all of you guys are so appreciated for all of your hard work! I love seeing all of the content that gets created here. Please don’t ever stop. You’re all wonderful.

If you guys can remember the people I’ve forgotten please add them to this post! I want everyone to feel known and appreciated because you guys all deserve it!
