Planet of the Time Lords…↳ The oldest and most mighty race in the universe.
Gallifrey is in Ireland, apparently.
Yet another reason to love Doctor Who: you never know when a Classic Who reference will pop up.
“They used to call it the Shining World of the Seven Systems…”
“Lots of planets have a north.”
It’s in Ireland

What if instead of primarily working on it on my own with some input via tumblr I put it on a google document for people to view?
I can allow interested people and linguists to edit the document instead of just viewing it. To get access, send me an email at (mytumblrusername) at gmail OR just send me a message with your email!
After all, there are linguists expressing interest who have a lot more experience than I do, and of course they would do a better job.
LET’S DO THIS, WHOVIANS.
They used to call it the Shining World of the Seven Systems. And on the continent of Wild Endeavour, in the mountains of Solace and Solitude, there stood the Citadel of the Time Lords. The oldest and most mighty race in the universe. Looking down on the galaxies below, sworn never to interfere, only to watch.
I need help. I want a tattoo in Circular Gallifreyan. However, 1. I don’t know what it should say (though I’m leaning toward something like “Human”) and 2. I don’t know where to find anything canonical. Can anyone help me with this?
I need this clock, and thats the end of it!
You are all VERY JEALOUS of my schoolbag.
