"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.)
John Green is the New York Times bestselling author of Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns. He is also the coauthor, with David Levithan, of Will Grayson, Will Grayson. His newest book is The Fault in Our Stars.
In 2007, Green and his brother Hank ceased textual communication and began to talk primarily through videoblogs posted to youtube. Although they have long since resumed textual communication, John and Hank continue to upload three videos a week to their youtube channel, vlogbrothers. John is married to Sara (The Yeti) and they have a baby boy named Henry.
Yes occasionally I will post things that are not John Green. How can I resist when Hank is so awesome? And then there are awesome nerdfighters to reblog?
The Fault in our Coffee
Hank Green: The only guy in the world who can actually do this and not seem like a total asshole.
Keep your eye on Hankschannel to see what this is all about…
So Hankgames is becoming a big sponsor of a real, live professional soccer team, AFC Wimbledon.
AFC Wimbledon really is tumblr’s team: They’re owned by their fans, not some rich guy. They’re leading the fight to end homophobia in sports. Their mascot is a womble.
This is a team that deserves to be in the football league, and hopefully our support will help keep them there. As part of our sponsorship package, we’ll have signage around the ground and on the pitch. We can advertise whatever we want: hankgames, crash course, the project for awesome, poetry, whatever. If you’d like to design a sign, just use the tag afc wimbledon. (We think the signs are 16 feet long and 3 feet high.)
A few videos to watch to cement your AFC Wimbledon fandom!
I don’t know why, but this made me giddy beyond belief! Something about the underdogs rising up and all because of their fans.
Anywho, Check it out. Subscribe to HankGames so you can help contribute to a Football team. And we mean English Football.
This is the most personal vlogbrothers video I’ve made in several years.
I really like that a lot of people I look up to have been talking about their experiences with Depression. It’s a real thing, and it can be hard to get through alone. And trust me, you aren’t alone.
