The Doctor relaxed on the comfy couch in one of the many rooms as he read one of his oldest books over again. The Gallifreyan writing sometimes brought his spirit back up after a moment of pain or disappointment. What he didn’t expect was someone to actually find him in the maze of the Old Girl.
“Come to enjoy a good book as well?” He asked as he peered over the edge of his book.
“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and… bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.”
~~Wallpapers~~ the first two are similar and read: “Demons run when a good man goes to war”. The third reads “Time And Relative Dimension In Space”. Leave an ask if you’d like me to do some Gallifreyan for you ^^ leave a link to the background image and the text you’d like me to include and I’ll do one for you!
Circular Gallifreyan writing, the circular pretty things most commonly known is not their language. It’s the mathematical language (base seven). It’s mostly used for complex equations, rather than writing, because it’s so complicated and difficult to write/read that not even every Gallifreyan can read it very well (so kind of like an engineering language…).Presumably this is why it’s all over TARDIS displays. It’s the technical language. So you probably wouldn’t even understand or care about anything the display showed even if it were translated.
Old High Gallifreyan was kind of like Latin, few really bothered to learn it and it was never really used. (Apparently it’s used in some official writing though, because the Doctor’s ‘name’ is written in it when he’s summoned a few times) Old High Gallifreyan looks very Greek, with some mathematical symbols thrown in presumably because Gallifreyans are kind of math geeks. The Doctor (and presumably River Song) uses it fairly often because he’s like that geek who writes in a dead language to substitute for pig-latin code in class notes.
Modern Gallifreyan, what is (was) usually used during the Doctor’s time looks more like Tamil.
Now go incorporate that into your fics and whatnot.
