Gallifreyan Alphabet by DarkIfaerie Gallifreyan Alphabet by DarkIfaerie
I have a feeling some of you are going to kill me for this, but a couple of people asked me to post it, so I did. These are the characters of the Gallifreyan alphabet, (Please note I made these up. They are not actually used in the show.)
There is no specific order to how to put it together, as in 'The End of Time', one of the council of timelords mentions that the language is difficult to decipher, but I usually tend to put the characters spiralling clockwise inwards, incased in a circle, a different one per word. The timelords were clever, maybe they enjoyed figuring out what each other was/were? (I never know) saying. This is the normal gallifreyan, as used on the TARDIS scanner (David and Chris'), not old high gallifreyan as shown in 'The Time of Angels'

Great interpretation. Since there is no definitive Circular Gallifreyan I love to see people's versions of what it supposed to look like.  Keep up the good work

Look, I said these were fanmade. Also, if you look at the datestamp, I made these before that came out. So, no. My interpretation of something that, at the time, didn't exist, is not wrong.

I used your Gallifreyan in a picture here: krislove45.deviantart.com/art/… (it starts from the smaller circle, then works it way in a spiral in a counter-clockwise direction)

Creds are in the sketch's description, but if you'd like for me to add them in the drawing I can do that! ^^

This looks really good! It was fun using it, and I hope you don't mind that I did. 

Thank you for your time~

No, I don't mind. I didn't make the alphabet so I could enjoy being the only person allowed to use it. I'd rather you credited me wherever you used them, though. Thanks :)

I put instructions in the descriptions, but it is long...
I write each word within another circle, and put the letters inside it. Read clockwise.
