I know this might be a lot to ask, but your gifs are absolutely stunning and I was wondering if you'd be willing to please post a tutorial on how you color them/make them look so nice? I'm pretty new to giffing and trying to learn. Thanks in advance for your response :)

Oh my gosh, thank you so much!! And hell no, it is not too much to ask!

Let me preface this by saying a few things:

- First of all, you’re totally going to see why it’s best for me to not go into a teaching career lmao

- Second, I use Photoshop CS5, so things may look a bit different if you are using an older or newer version of Photoshop.

- Third, your coloring is going to look different depending on the base scene you’re working with. Some scenes (especially darker scenes) just do not want to cooperate, so you just have to do the best that you can with what you are given.

In this tutorial, we’re going to be going from this:

To this:

All right! *Michael Shannon voice* Strap yourself in because this is gonna be a rough fucking ride!

Hey! I'm new to the fandom, I've always watched the show but never more than that, and I was wondering - since you know about the clothes and how the color has meaning - if the Broadchurch group uses other kinds of subtext? Like idk in dialogue or in the way they set the scene? Honestly just suggesting some metas would be good, you don't need to make a super long answer. Just trying to understand how I should read the show.

Subtext is an essential part of good writing. I’ve written so much meta and nonsense about this show, feel free to trawl through my broadchurch tag for stuff. Otherwise, I guess I can link a few different things. A caveat, I am a Hardy x Miller shipper and my meta will reflect that. This was also all written before S3 began to air. Doubtless, errors of judgement will be exposed before the season is up.
