So I recently hit 600 followers Which is absolutely insane. I don’t even know how that came about. (I’M ALMOST AT 700 NOW WHAAAAAT). I am so so humbled. You guys are awesome and I just want to give you guys all a big hug. Thank you so so much. I couldn’t thank you guys enough. Sooo.. I figured why not do a follow forever (my first ever)- to celebrate all you little nerds. Yaay! I love you guys <3
Also, really sorry if I forgot to mention anyone (I follow more than 700 people, im bound to forget a few). If I did forget anyone feel free to shoot me an ask, and ill add you!
I’ll keep updating this as more people respond/I find asks that are not in the OBspec tag.
So here are my literal ideas on our elusive anon friend.
Many people think that happyjacq and/or cosima-geekmonkey-niehaus is behind this that could be the case although Casey seems to know nothing and is loving the hype. Then again a lot of these people are her friends. So any of these people could be up to something and sending anon messages to themselves to throw us off (Casey, I can’t take full credit for this idea).
I am a hopeful child and want to believe that it is OBTumblr or something official. Has anyone else noticed that since OBspec started we have had no new photos from set, very few tweets from the cast and crew, and OBTumblr has been on the quiet side, maybe they’re up to something.
Why Shakespeare? Is it because the iambic pentameter and style of his writing is cryptic by nature? These quotes have similarities to Orphan Black. Twelfth Night and The Comedy of Errors are both about twins. The former about assuming the life of your twin the later about mistaken identity. These are scenarios that in Orphan Black are used dramatically but for the bard it creates humor. The Midsummer quote was said by Helena (although pronounced differently is the same name). I don’t know Antony and Cleopatra at all and when it comes to theatre give me a musical or a modern straight play any day over Shakespeare it is not my thing.
Anyway these are my thoughts. Happy OBspec-ing. We’ll know more Tomorrow at 7pm!
Here’s what you’ll need (at least that’s how I’m working - there are many ways that lead to Rome): 1) A video file of what you want to gif. I highly recommend logoless WEB-DLs in 1080p. These give the best results. 2) KMPlayer (I work with version 18.104.22.168) 3) Photoshop CC Oh, and I’m working with Rachel’s favorite operating systemWindows, so the shortcuts might be different on a Mac.
I’m dividing this into screencapping in KMPlayer first, the second step is the actual giffing process in Photoshop with coloring, tweening, sharpening and saving.
Can we please discuss the fact that we got to see Helena’s image IN THE MIRRORfor the very first time in this series? And look at the different color toning, too. happyjacq, alisonisthegreatstar, krazyhippo66? Let’s talk. And eat.
I thought this scene was really important. First of all, proclone Rachel, who is so elite, puts herself on the same level as the other clones. But what really got me was the subtle nod in the fourth gif, so easy to oversee. Once again, this ties nicely into the theme of control over their bodies. Rachel knows she can get sick as well, which means losing control over her body (once again), but she acknowledges, probably more to herself than to Delphine, that there is a possible cure, which would give her back her control. Have I mentioned that I love Tatiana’s subtle acting as Rachel? That’s part of what makes her (Rachel) so interesting to me.
