"Welcome, strange being from another planet, to Aperture Science.
Watch your step on your way out of the inter-dimensional hyper-spacial permanent time portal. I don't need no alien head mucus splattering the floor of my facility if you fall. The lab boys have said this is a terrible idea, so naturally we've gone right ahead and done it. If you'll continue on through the facility, it's very possible you'll see my track record with them. It's not pretty.
If any of you don't understand a word I'm saying, don't worry, we've prepared for that. There'll be an associate waiting for you to attach a translator to you. Now, don't worry. It might look scary but I promise you'll feel a lot better when you can speak English. That's a promise.
Since you're from all over the infinite dimensions out there, it's very likely you're not human. That's okay. As long as you're organic, you can be tested. For reference, my name's Cave Johnson. What you're hearing is a prerecorded message so don't try to talk back at me; I won't listen. Now get moving! And get testing. Remember: testing is the future, and the future starts with you."
Though you may expect to be in the hubbub of Aperture, this place you've fallen into is rusty and old. There's no associate waiting to hand you a translator, but there are some lying around in the ruins. The giant portal you've come through is still on, but if you try to go back through it you'll find yourself in a completely foreign place.
Any hope of returning to where you come from resides back in Aperture. Best get back soon before the portal disappears.
aperturescience is a dressing room type setting open to any and all characters from all over the canon map. This includes anyone from Portal characters (yes, even Cave Johnson - have fun hearing yourself) to Pretty Little Liars and all the anime and manga and webcomics in between.
Any canon is welcome! And any time is too. Alternate universes and original characters come at us.
This giant portal device was designed as a last minute attempt at getting more test subjects when the rest of their world was so weary to get involved, but unfortunately Cave passed away just prior to its activation. The prerecorded message was one of the last he recorded before falling ill, and once he was ill the people left in Aperture with some semblance of sense (see: Caroline) made sure the dangerous experiment was put on a back burner in order to further prioritize looking for a cure for Cave. Years later, it's been booted up for the first time, and it works. The other side of the portal not connected to Aperture is set to pop up anywhere within multiple dimensions at any time in any place, you get it. That is how your character ended up in Aperture: by falling through it or simply walking in out of curiosity. As soon as something passes through the portal, it's set to open somewhere else automatically. The only exception to this is if you step through the portal from the Aperture side: it will remain there until you come back, don't worry. And of course, as it has been sitting for a decent while without use, it may be subject to malfunctioning.
The setting is a vague time set after Portal 2, and whether or not the area you're brought to is within GLaDOS's reach or not remains vague.
Players may use the setting however they like. This includes GLaDOS, Cave Johnson, turrets, cubes, Atlas and P-Body, anything found within Aperture is at the player's disposal, unless those things happen to come from the time-space portal as well. In which case, those things are under another player's jurisdiction, and must be treated that way.
Play nice and don't be rude to other players.
And that's about it! We hope you have fun.
