These are my most favorite people in the world and I admire them in every way, I love them with all my heart and I smile everytime I see them on my dash or talk to them on skype. You guys make my life better and I wanna thank you and because I cannot give you a real hug, I made this post to show my love.
This is mine and Nili’s relationship in a nutshell.

casually scrolling through my dash
i was going to make a list of reasons why nili is awesome
but then i realized that microsoft word probably doesn’t allow documents to be that long
Gallifreyan Names: Part 4/??
Part of a series of names written in circular Gallifreyan. Each set of circles represents a first, middle, or last name and is based upon name meanings.
This one is Nili’s (just her first name, obviously).
“(The) wonder in (the) dark blue in (the) life-river.”
I found Greencrook’s circular Gallifreyan “alphabet” and have been playing with it ever since.
GUESS WHAT CARA MADE ME FOR MY BIRTHDAYYYY? ISN’T IT GORGEOUS?!? jghdfkjghfkhgkjdgjkdfgkjdg
It also has my last name on the back! But, you know, not posting that. Anyway, THANK YOUUU AND I LOVE YOUUUUUU~
nili didn’t commission me to do anything
but I made this anyway.
it’s winter. in the tardis.
the gallifreyan symbol at the top means “the ice”.
Obviously there are more than three crushes on my crush list, but I was listening to The Smiths and then there’s that line, “I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does” and I was like, okay but TenToo.
Like, Rose is in the kitchen, watching the pasta cook and she’s going to get it right this time, not too soft, not too hard, she is going to cook this pasta perfectly, and they are finally going to eat a meal at home and it’s not going to be takeaway and the dinner isn’t going to be lost to fucking on the kitchen table or because the Doctor needs her to watch a funny video on the computer or because Mrs. Thurston’s Chihuahua has escaped again and they need to help scour the building.
So she’s really paying attention, really into it, and here comes the Doctor, sweeping her hair aside to kiss at her neck, backing her up against the counter next to the stove, hips and teeth, and well, we’ll need to build up our appetites first, won’t we, Rose? And she laughs, but shakes her head, and sets her jaw, and goes back to the pasta, and he scampers away, no worse for the wear. But he’s back a minute later, waving a catalog in front of her, and wouldn’t this coat look brilliant on me?
And she shuts him down again, still smiling, and it goes on a few more times, the pasta reaching a critical stage, and he’s had enough, and he stands in the middle of the kitchen, and dramatically sings The Smiths at the top of his lungs, “I AM HUMAN AND I NEED TO BE LOVED, JUST LIKE EVERYBODY DOES” and Rose loses it this time, doubling over with laughter, and yeah, you’re a regular Morrissey aren’t you, Doctor? And of course the pasta goes mushy, and she turns the water off, and she leads him to the bedroom, and then they go to that little diner around the corner for dinner, the one with the great jukebox, and she plays ten quid’s worth of Smiths songs and he steals a chip every time she giggles.
BUT THEN I WAS LIKE, WAIT, TUMBLR, because this column of my crushes is emblematic of all the ways that same line could go completely differently.
Here’s Allison and I think Allison can fluff with the best of them, but really, a line like that and the angst of The Smiths and then suddenly I was like, I AM GETTING EMOTIONAL ANGSTY FEELINGS OVER SOMETHING ALLISON HASN’T EVEN WRITTEN THAT’S HOW EFFECTIVE THE LITTLE TAG BREADCRUMBS SHE LEAVES ARE.
And then it was like, and here comes Melissa, on the heels of it, with an ask box reminder of how red David Tennant’s eyes were at Billie Piper’s wedding and break up music, or lost love music, and a fic phrased as a question, just enough for me to fall down that rabbit hole again.
And then Nili, completely ruthless Nili, with her gifset of a sad looking TenToo cut together with a Rose that’s looking at the Time Lord Doctor or something equally horrifying and it’s all perfectly executed to make you think about whether it’s possible to choke on your own years.
And it’s like when you wake up from a dream completely furious with your mom because of something she did IN A DREAM and that’s how these three are for me on Tumblr anymore — they don’t even have to try and ruin my life, my brain just fills it in for them.
IN CONCLUSION IF YOU ARE NOT FOLLOWING THEM, YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON A WHOLE HOST OF SELF-GENERATED BONUS MATERIALS.
