casually call people “human” to unsettle them and make them question what sort of being you are

“Gods die. And when they truly die they are unmourned and unremembered. Ideas are more difficult to kill than people, but they can be killed, in the end.”
Ok, so I was going through some of my old clothes this morning and stumbled upon this. I honestly had no idea that I still had it! My Legolas shirt that is actually a decade old…
It’s the new sexy.
You fight it. You don’t give up. And one day you just change.
Gillian Anderson and Benedict Cumberbatch (Part 1)
These two gorgeous people were reading letters and hosting a charity auction at Letters Live for The Reading Agency along with assorted other awesome celebrities yesterday.
During the book auction, Neil Gaiman pointed out that the successful bidder could also get hold of Benedict’s DNA from the book and “clone their own little Cumberbatch”, at which point Gillian licked the book to boost the price by adding a bit of her own DNA.
In the process, this epic piece of dialogue occurred:
Gillian Anderson: “£3800 for a bit of Benedict Cumberbatch!”
Neil Gaiman: “…also licked by Gillian Anderson!”
The book eventually sold for £5k. I think Caitlin Moran bought it, because she has five grand to spare and I haven’t.
Also on offer I have the following goodies from the night:
- Video of Benedict reading a love letter (link)
- Some photos of James Rhodes and Benedict Cumberbatch (link)
- Some photos of Neil Gaiman and Nick Cave (link)
- And some more photos of the wonderful Gillian Anderson (link)
John, what is your opinion on The Picture of Dorian Gray?
It never gets old.
