“Books! The greatest weapons in the world!” - Doctor Who, “Tooth and Claw”

We know that a lot of our followers are big Doctor Who fans, and we also know that the Doctor himself is a big fan of books! So in honor of the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who that airs tomorrow, Saturday, November 23rd, we’ve translated some of our favorite The Fault In Our Stars quotes into Gallifreyan, the Doctor’s native language!

If you translate your favorite book quotes into Gallifreyan and post them to Tumblr with the hashtag #penguin teen, we will reblog as many as we can throughout the weekend! Don’t speak Gallifreyan? No worries–here is a helpful translator (or, if you don’t want to download a program, try this online translator). We can’t wait to see what you guys create!

(Thanks go out to Rosianna for the fabulous idea, and the “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once” image above.)


Now available for pre-order at DFTBA Records! Gallifreyan quotes from my books and nerdfighteria.

In blue: “Maybe okay will be our always.”

In maroon: “Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”

In black: “DFTBA.”

In purple: “My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”

As most of my followers will have noticed, recently I’ve been completely obsessed by the wonderful webcomic The Property of Hate, by the awesome modmad. Since I’m completely mad, I translated the first page into gallifreyan. I didn’t translate the name of the comic because I wanted to keep that in its original English. After all, in places like the land RGB takes Hero, names have power.

You can read the comic in English here and here.
