david do have way with the words

I’ve been in this fandom for a fucking long time, I’ve seen a lot of stuff go on but this new wave just takes the cake. Gillian has literally just released a book that pretty much centres on putting kindness out into the world, yet the fans who profess to love her are going out of their way to do the exact opposite. I don’t get it, we will always have differing opinions over stuff but this nastiness needs to stop. Dragging Davids words out that were said 20 years ago is beyond pointless and cruel.

Can you imagine just about EVERYTHING you’ve said being thrown in your face decades later?? We all make mistakes, we dont have to live with them forever. He’s more than made amends, and if it wasn’t for him I don’t think there would have been any S11. We have so much to be grateful for, can we all chill the fuck out..please.

3x05 / 6x12

Really, David? You know this guy for three seasons now, do you have to treat him like that still?

Honestly, I’m very disappointed from him here. I realize he’s upset and all, but Killian deserves better! Look at his poor face :( He’s hurting by these words just like on 3x05, only this time he already proven himself as a hero, but mostly as a friend to him.

I know this episode will end in the same way as 3x05, with Charming thanking him and being his friend, but I hate that now three seasons later we have to see these kind of words coming out of his mouth all over again. 

The other day I made a post about making a pin inspired by the Supernatural character Arthur Ketch available for pre-order for those within the USA (I would make it international now but I want to see how the first 100 batch goes and if there’s a large demand for it outside of the states (shipping internationally is hella expensive, why?!)).

I’m making this post again because with David posting a close up photo of what the cross looked like, I went back to the drawing board and revised the cross to get what is above (the manufacturer will obviously clean up the lines better then I did). You honestly don’t even have to like Mr. Ketch to buy this, it’s a pretty nice cross without linking it to someone either way, ya know?

The pins would go for 10$ (shipping is included in price).

What do you guys think? 

(Please reblog to spread the word, I need 100 people to definitely want to buy this pin in order to set up a pre-order.)

Is your life so empty that you honestly can’t think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all that claim it? Do you read everything you’re supposed to read? Do you think every thing you’re supposed to think? Buy what you’re told to want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you’re alive. If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned

OH GOD, I love the way David looks in Twin Peaks! Now I wish the old Gillian was back and she would tweet something funny with that photo!

I wish so much she would react to this pic too, I’m sure she would have in other circumstances, but the fact that she’d been called transmysoginist once because of a joke might influence her for not saying a word, and it’s really sad. Hopefully, she will do what the fuck she wants, ignore the haters, and make fun of Denise! I’m sure she has a hundred jokes ready to be tweeted already!

When you date someone, you have the markers along the way, right: You kiss, you have The Talk, you say the Three Little Words, you sit on a swing set and break up. You can plot the points on a graph. And you check up with each other along the way: Can I do this? If I say this, will you say it back?

But with friendship, there’s nothing like that. Being in a relationship, that’s something you choose. Being friends, that’s just something you are.

Tumblr Fact or Fiction - Doctor Who - Judoon Platoon on the Moon

Claim:  Russell T. Davis included the phrase “Judoon platoon upon the moon” deliberately to give David a hard time - as it is pronounced differently in David’s natural Scottish accent as opposed to the Doctor’s Estuary accent.

History:  This claim didn’t originate on Tumblr - it’s been around since the episode aired and has managed to worm it’s way into many (fan-updated) wikis as though it is fact – but can anyone find an actual citation for this (Wikipedia couldn’t find one)?  Is it actually fact?

Source of the myth:  On March 28, 2007 David appeared on Chris Moyles’ radio show to promote series 3 of Doctor Who. They discussed Smith and Jones (featuring the quote in question). The hosts were also quite taken by David’s Scottish accent.  Among the quotes on the show:  
CM:  Do you ever get halfway through a scene and go, "Sorry I’m gonna have to stop, that’s too Scottish?”
DT:  Ehhh… no.  I don’t think I do really.
[later, after David tells them the name of the episode’s baddie]
CM: I think Russell T. Davies purposefully writes alien names that sound Scottish…
DT:  Yeah, to try to catch me out?
CM:  Absolutely!
DT: I think he does, yeah.  And there’s a line where I have to say, “Judoon platoon upon the moon.”
[everyone laughs]
CM:  Isn’t that the knife that you wear in your sock when you wear the kilt?
DT:  That’s a sgian-dubh.
CM:  Judoon platoon upon the moon?
DT:  Yeah
CM:  He’s definitely done that to wind you up!
DT:  [laughs] Yeah, he probably has.
CM:  [goes off on some imaginary scenario where RTD sits at home shouting to his wife(!!) to come up with Scottish-sounding names]

Source:  [ youtube ]

So, I believe that’s the source of the myth - and you would think that DT himself is a very good source, right?  But David really only jokingly agrees with Moyles’ suggestion, saying that’s “probably” what RTD does, so I don’t think that can be taken as fact.

Discounting the myth:
On the DVD commentary track for Series 4 episode The Poison Sky (which was recorded right before The Poison Sky aired in the UK), Susie Liggat (producer) asked RTD:
SL:  Now, a thing that I’ve always wondered, with you two chaps in the room, is: Do you, Russell, set David the odd really difficult thing to say to see whether… like Raxicalla-whatever that one is?
RTD: No, to be honest.  I know what you mean, it could look like that.
SL:  Sometimes I think, nobody…
DT:  The square root of Pi to 30 decimal places wasn’t easy, Russell… thank you.  For episode 10.
RTD: [laughs loudly]
SL:  It feels like there’s sort of a gamesmanship, I suppose, about it.  Like, is he going to look this up in the Latin, ancient Greek…
RTD: I don’t really!  Honestly.  I just sit there and think of the Doctor. Absolutely honestly.  And that, unfortunately for you, that is what the Doctor is like as a man.  This version of the Doctor loves words. I think he talks to himself a lot of the time - he’s listening to himself.  He enjoys… He does puns that nobody even gets.
DT:  I love it, to be honest!
[…]
RTD: I do remember this year thinking, in Pompeii, that “Species designation according to the universal ratification of the Shadow Proclamation” [big laugh] I remember putting that in and thinking, that’s a laugh!  I think that’s the only time I’ve ever thought, “that’s a bit of a laugh”, actually.  Let’s have a go at that one.

Conclusion:
Unless someone knows of a quote where RTD admits that he came up with the Judoon name/phrase to give David a challenge, I think we can’t count this myth as fact.  It started as a joke from Chris Moyles, and later Russell said that he doesn’t deliberately write lines in an effort to trip up David. This evidence isn’t entirely conclusive – RTD admittedly lied to protect plotlines and such, and people sometimes forget why they did certain things over time, but I don’t believe we have conclusive evidence that this myth is true. DT and RTD did the Smith and Jones DVD commentary together, and the line/reason for the name “Judoon” didn’t come up at that time.  Unless someone can provide a quote where RTD admits it to be fact, I personally count this as an untrue myth.

Disclaimer:
I make no claim of being the keeper of all Doctor Who knowledge, and I’m certainly not perfect, but I can share the sources that I’m aware of and provide a place to gather evidence as to the veracity (or lack thereof) of these claims. Please let me know if you are aware of real, verifiable quotes from RTD or another knowledgeable member of the cast/crew and I’ll add it to the list of evidence.

David, as a father and conlanger, are you going to talk to your daughter in Dadhraki?

No. I’d have to learn it first. O.O

It’s hard to properly convey my relationship with my languages. I know them, but I don’t speak them. I can’t just converse in them. I can’t come up with sentences spontaneously. I can’t use them the way that a fluent speaker can use their language (i.e. off the cuff in all situations). Unless I happen to have the words memorized, I can only do translations on paper with my dictionary open—and that’s on paper. Speech is much quicker. You can’t stop and think: You just have to do it. I’m nowhere close to that with any of my languages.

I could probably learn them and get to that point, but I’ve got other things to do—or, rather, other languages to learn (specifically, Finnish).

Hey, random Finnish fact. Check out how crazy this is:

  • yksi = one
  • kaksi = two

Okay…

  • yksitoista = eleven
  • kaksitoista = twelve

Sure, no problem…

  • puoli = one half
  • puolitoista = one and a half
  • kaksi ja puoli = two and a half

?!?!?!??!?!?!

That’s the craziest thing ever! Numberniks: Explain this thing!

anonymous asked:

Hi! I saw some pictures on Facebook with David and his son and Cindy Crawforf in Malibu. There is written that the pictures are from yesterday. I'm very confused now. Do you know something about it?

All I know is that they’re from the same people and the same group who used to be really confusing last summer, always posting candids of David without watermark, without source and without date. In other words, they can be from a few days, weeks, months ago. We have no way to know it. It was really confusing last summer because we had no other way to know where he was, which is not the case this time. There was at least two sightings of him in NY this week, plus his tweet, and considering there’s a snowstorm in NY, there’s no reason to believe he’s currently anywhere else.

DEADLINE: So is there a silver lining in this campaigning in public that could see Hannibal return to the big screen?

FULLER: Obviously there is something appealing about seeing a full circle back to the big screen with this cast. So I can’t deny that that would be the most awesome of results from this cancellation on NBC. At least for me, because it feels like a big-screen show in the way we produce it and the way it is formalistically designed. And having someone like David Slade direct a Hannibal film with Mads Mikkelson and Hugh Dancy is incredibly exciting. But also in order to do that I would have to condense a lot of story so once again with the Hannibal mythos, as we’ve been exploring, a little bit more real estate gives us the opportunity to be a little bit more funky in our narrative.

DEADLINE: With Hannibal feeling so often like a cable series that ended up on broadcast TV, a streaming service could offer some very funky, to use your word, opportunities to reach further towards being a big-screen show.

FULLER: I do think that there is great benefit for Hannibal to be on a streaming service in terms of the enthusiasm of the fanbase and the accessibility that streaming services offer. It would open up an immediacy to the show in a way that we haven’t had before. But I love the idea of serving out to an audience course by course. So even if it ends up on a streaming service it might be interesting to break it down in a way that redefines streaming services.

DEADLINE: Like how?

FULLER: Well, like courses. So you get one or two episodes and then a break. Then two or three more episodes and a break and then another two or three more episodes and another break. Something like that could shift the story into a broader act.

DEADLINE: Like mini-movies?

FULLER: Almost like a mini-movie trilogy. That could be exciting as well. There’s an opportunity in whatever format we could end up on to look at adapting the story telling of this series to accommodate that service in a new way.

Identity

I am not going to tell you who I am, at least not until this hysteria blows over.

I have never claimed to be David or to know anything about any hidden messages in his videos. I have claimed quite the opposite. Though I loved him as much as you did, this is not a site about David.

I am not affiliated with David in any way.
I have never met David and I know him only through his music and his words.

I know some of you wanted this to be a site were David somehow lived on. Sadly, this is not the case. You have to move on. David has left this planet.

I do not think I owe you anything more than this.

Now…..you are more than welcome to share this place with me, but if you demand answers and absolute truths then this is not a place for you.

I hope this post gives at least some of you some relief.

Just Stay Alive

Because you know I couldn’t leave “That Would Be Enough” alone, now could I? No spoilers, just pure angst straight from my brain. Well, not pure angst, I might have thrown a dash of fluff in at the end. You can also check it out on ff.net. I love reviews and tag flails as always!


Stricken.

It is the only word he knows to describe the look on Snow and David’s faces when Emma tells them of her visions. They would still be in the dark if it were up to her, but the trembling in her hand grows to noticeable to hide, as do the dark circles beneath her eyes and the way she jumps at every shadow.

Bright tears spring to the princess’ eyes as she regards her daughter, unable to voice her customary hope speech. David slumps numbly beside her, staring at Emma without seeing her, all fire gone from his gaze. It’s the lad who breaks from the trance first, the chair clattering across the floor as he glares down at his mother with clenched fists.

“You lied to me,” he spits out.

“Henry.” Emma sits forward, reaching for her son.

Henry snatches his hand away, spinning on his heel and slamming the door behind him as he races from the apartment. Killian can’t begrudge him the actions as he performed the same sequence mere weeks ago. Gently, he smoothes his hand down Emma’s back as she places her head in her hands. Across the table, Snow White meets his eyes, some of the fight returned to her brittle, green gaze.

“I’ll go talk to him,” Killian says.

Thank You Team Arrow Project

Hello Arrow Family!

Wow! BIG weekend! I really have no words for the way this weekend has happened… “Unbelievable” is all that comes to mind right at the moment. Everything is still sinking in I think. I apologize in advance for the lack of words but I will do my best.

Team Arrow absolutely LOVED the Thank You book! Each of them were shocked with it and had nothing but amazing things to say about it. They all couldn’t believe they each got a copy of it.

Stephen was very thrilled to get it and had a huge smile on his face while flipping through the pages! I wish I could have gotten pictures for you all! At the Nocking Point party that night, he remembered me and told me to let you all know how much he appreciated the book! He also introduced me to his wife Cassandra and told her about the “awesome thank you book” we gave him and the cast/crew!

One my favorites moments was when I presented the book to John Barrowman and he had ME sign and date his copy so he could “display it at his house on his coffee table.” I did get pictures of this moment:

I love that man! He is an absolute amazingly wonderful human being! The best kind of person you will ever have the pleasure of meeting in your life! I swear I am NOT over exaggerating this at all.

Here is a photo op I got with Team Arrow and the book:

Here are the pictures of the cast’s signatures on my copy of the book:

I hope you all have enjoyed the pictures and responses from the conclusion of our amazing project! A big THANK YOU to everyone that has been involved in this and has supported me along this unforgettable journey! You all will forever be part of my Arrow family!

Please email me if you would like me to send you a picture of your finalized Thank You submission.

*Note: These pictures are my personal pictures. Please do not copy and use as your own.*

The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan. It is a good book, indeed. It inspires me to learn more words and beyond words. It teaches me that words don’t just have meanings, but feelings. I learn the meaning of it and the meaning of saying it, or reading it. Words are little things we do in our everydays, but ignored in some ways. Words help on showing us things that other’s don’t see. Words are making us feel what others can’t imagine.
