date night with Nikola

They walk through the door and . . .

Hello, Cardiff, you're unusually chilly tonight.

There is something intrinsically wrong about forcing someone to equate John Cleese with Ian McKellen.

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 12:57 am (UTC)(link)
I thought it was quite clever, as I'm a fan of both movies.

[identity profile] rockscientist.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
As you should be, but that doesn't change the fact that my brain refuses to work with the inherant contradictions between the two.

I think you've made me schizophrenic.

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sorry.

And I'm sorry to you, too.

[identity profile] rockscientist.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 01:39 am (UTC)(link)
We forgive you.

No, we don't.

Ignore him. He's just bitter about being second.

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
All right, I will. I'd rather talk to you than him, anyway.

I think to be me, you'd actually have to grow down-- vertically by a foot, and chronologically by six or so years...

Interesting meme, though. I know I'm going to regret asking, but what does 'Blydd Drwg' actually mean...?

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 12:58 am (UTC)(link)
Woe. I guess I'll just have to go on being me, then.

It means "bad wolf." Our mayor, a few years ago, was going to build a nuclear plant and called it the Blydd Drwg project, but she disappeared before it could be completed. I've always liked the name, though.

[identity profile] legofortress.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
Unless you're very fond of lego, hotels, and detective work, I don't think you'd want to be me. Being very fond of Matt is also required. I think you're probably better off being you, to be honest.

...Oddly, that's... Sort of what I thought it sounded like. Well, dog, anyway. Which sounds far more like a rap singer than a goth, I think...

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
It's pronounced "blithe droog", more or less. I just like the sound.

There's a graffiti artist called Bad Wolf in the city. Not horribly creative--he just writes his name--but there's hardly a building he hasn't tagged at least once.

...It's a very strange language. The people there must have been terribly angry with vowels, for some reason...

I always wonder how they get around so much. It's something of a talent in itself, I suppose...

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 03:49 am (UTC)(link)
Hey now. No mocking of the native tongue!

Presumably they travel under cover of darkness, work quickly and melt again into the night.

[identity profile] legofortress.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not...! I just imagine it must be very difficult to learn. It's very unusual language.

Mmm, probably. I bet they travel in packs, too...

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
I grew up speaking Welsh--I found English harder. At least Welsh's rules are consistent--there's no explaining a language where rough, through, and borough sound nothing alike. And whose idea was "i before e except after c"? And don't even get me started on the lie/lay thing.

[identity profile] legofortress.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
Ah, I see. English is quite ridiculous, of course, but Welsh does rather look as if you'd need to pull out your tongue to pronounce some of it. Still, consistent rules would be nice.

You speak English remarkably well for it being your second language, by the way. When did you start leaning it...?

[identity profile] morethanteaboy.livejournal.com 2007-04-25 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you. It's all the reading.

When I started school, at five. So I suppose strictly speaking I grew up speaking it as well.

"And sweet," Nikola says, continuing their conversation. "Don't forget sweet."

Nikola's hands were already cold in Milliways. Cardiff's chill doesn't faze him.

"I love Italian," Nikola says. "Rome is one of my favorite cities."

Not entirely for the food, but that plays a part.

"I don't mind walking. It'll be nice to see the city again." He looks around at the dress of the people around him. "What year is it here?"

[personal profile] ps_you_look_hot 2010-01-17 03:25 am (UTC)(link)
"Quite different, yes," Nikola says. "It was...1973, I believe, the last time I was here."
ps_you_look_hot: (dimples)

[personal profile] ps_you_look_hot 2010-01-17 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
Nikola laughs. "Christ. So young."
