GLTAS Oan Standard Language

So, over a year ago I sat down with over a half dozen screencaps of the scene in “Fear Itself” and hand-drew the characters and went through it back and forth until I had decoded the 17 clearly visible characters in that scene to their English equivalents. [link]

A few weeks later, “Flight Club” aired, including a scene where Appa Ali Apsa threw out a literal wall of the Oan code-text. I promised myself to translate it later and hope it covered more of the missing letters. Unlike the scene in “Fear Itself”, there was no real indication of what the expect that text to say, and the sheer amount of it was daunting.

Inbetweethelineart recently reminded me of the unfinished translation so I started it up. Based o the characters I already knew, I caught that the text in Appa’s scene was all upside down — because Appa is a prat, I assumed. I set about re-drawing all of the characters fresh off the screencaps and ended up with 26 characters! Happy days. Now to try to work out what the new letters might equate to by educated guessing…

Appa’s screencap (once flipped) started with just a straight list of A to Z and then continues with random sequences of the alphabet only slightly out of order. Queue the unexpectedly easy button and much laughter at my own procrastination up until now!

That cheeky GLTAS Crew!

That was fun.

About time I got this done! ;)

#i love the way he’s looking at her like in complete desbelief, #he’s always seen her so powerful so capable so in complete control of herself, #(save that time in lost planet but drusa was cheating), #so seeing her so weak is something that he can’t quite comprehend, #his whole face is like ‘no this can’t be happening. you can’t be like this’, #you can almost hear him say ‘please be okay’, #and i think that is precisely why he can’t keep his hands off her during the whole thing, #because he’s afraid to see her so weak, #because she has NEVER been weak, #and it’s new and scary

Love the tags commentary.

As usual, I was doing something else when the idea came to my mind.
Oh, fandom. You never fail to amuse me. ilu <3

For my girlfriend and for @vile-priestess and, well, anyone else to whom this may be of interest, a breakdown of the glare in “Flight Club”:

When Byth Rok tells Aya he’s in the market for a new wife, pay close attention to Razer in the background! He goes from his standard glare (1.), aimed nowhere in particular, really, to a sort of angry surprise (2.) when Byth Rok gets to the punch and then, right before the camera cuts to Aya’s completely disinterested blank look, Razer shoots the nastiest glare right at Byth Rok (3.). AND HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW HE’S IN LOVE WITH HER YET.

The character animation in this show is so, so good.   

This reminds me of a gif I made

I was going to add captions to it… and then I promptly forgot about it :/

Pouty little rage bunny.
