Mark Gatiss at the Nerd HQ Sherlock at Comic Con 2013
the reason for making this gif set is rather self- explanatory opps
I JUST SAW MARK GATISS ON THE TUBE?!?!?
I didn’t even know it was him or anyone of note until I accidentally made eye contact, did a double take, laughed and whispered “hi” across the carriage, to which he smiled politely and said hi back and then I had no idea what to do or how to act until i had to just get off at my stop.
London is fucking WEIRD.
As some of you may have seen, we are once again raising money for LLGS as a Gift for Gatiss. It’s Marks birthday coming up and we want to give something back.
We like being pro-active so, just as we did last year we’re holding a charity auction.
Yep, have you ever wanted to commission a piece of art, or a fic? Now maybe your chance.
But first we need something to auction! If your an artist, writer, photoshopper or podficcer that would be willing to donate your skills to help raise money then please keep reading.
We are not controlling this in any way, it is for you to decide what you’re willing to offer. If your willing to offer one 221b drabble, 5 poems, 3 gif sets, 2 photoshop edits or 1 podfic reading then that’s awesome. Whatever your willing to give, we’re happy to auction off.
You can specify before the auction exactly what your offering and anything you will or won’t do.
Once signups are over there will be an auction site created where people can bid on the skills on offer. Once the bid is over, winners will be required to make the winning bid as a donation and the you will be given the URL of the winner.
It’s then down to the you and winner to discuss the commission piece, taking into account what the winner wants and what your happy to produce.
We will make it clear that there is no time limit on when commissions must be finished, we don’t want to pressure anyone, this is just a fun way to raise money for an awesome charity. For those concerned the finished work will not be linked on the birthday blog so there will be no chance of Mark seeing it.
I’m hoping to run the auction on the weekend beginning 11th so signups will be closing on the 8th October.
If you’d like to take part we need you to fill in the form under the cut, either on the provided link or via our email address.
An Illustrated Guide to Height Differences & Mark Gatiss
This is Mark Gatiss, and he is 6 feet and 1 inch in height. How would this compare with your height? Or the height of your friend/pony/garden fence? This is an illustrated guide to help you compare his height with that of other people and everyday objects.
This is Mark Gatiss and Bunsen. Adult male Labradors are typically around 2 feet in height at the shoulder. You can already tell how scientific this post is.
This is Mark Gatiss and Shirley Henderson, who is just under 5 feet and 1 inch in height. Possibly aided by heels.
This is Mark Gatiss and Una Stubbs, who is 5 feet and 2 inches in height. Possibly hampered by being tucked under both Mark & Benedict’s arms like a baby chick.
This is Mark Gatiss and Martin Freeman, who is somewhere between 5 feet 6 or 5 feet 7 inches in height. The sass adds a few inches.
This is Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith, who is around 5 feet and 7 inches in height. Bonus!background Ian Hallard.
This is Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, who is around
65 feet and 8 inches in height. Steven can stretch all he likes but Mark seems confident.
This is Mark Gatiss and Steve Pemberton, who is approximately 5 feet and 9 inches in height. They weren’t at secondary school here, they are adults, promise.
This is Mark Gatiss and Ian Hallard, also 5 feet and 9 inches in height. Love knows no height difference boundaries.
This is Mark Gatiss and Benedict Cumberbatch, who is 6 feet in height. Mycroft is both the taller and the smarter brother.
This is Mark Gatiss and David Tennant, who matches with Mark in height as well as geekery by being around the 6 feet and 1 inch point.
This is Mark Gatiss and Tom Hiddleston, who is approximately 6 feet and 2 inches in height. We’ve reached the alien land of Mark not being the tallest thing in the photo.
This is Mark Gatiss and David Walliams, who is somewhere a little over 6 feet and 2 inches in height. This almost doesn’t compute; he’s actually starting to look on the short side.
This is Mark Gatiss and Steven Fry, who is beyond the realm of 6 feet 4 inches tall. The Mycroft-ception is strong.
This is Mark Gatiss and a British Telecom phone box, which is approximately 8 feet in height. You’ll have to imagine the top half a foot or so (of the box - not Mark).
Finally this is Mark Gatiss and Christ the Redeemer, who is 98 feet in height. Despite the optical illusion of Mark having legs that go on for miles, he is actually the shorter figure in this photo.
These gifs really don’t need much commentary… *sigh*
