It’s just ether, but funny story about that. There was never any consensus on whether to pronounce it [ɛ]ther or [aj]ther (the first vowel rhyming with the e in bed and the second with the i in ice). I originally did it with ether, and then I was asked to change it to äither. And I did that, but then it was changed back… I think it’s actually pronounced both ways in the film. As for that, though, since it was a term, I decided to keep it as is, and I’m sure that’s what they would’ve wanted if I’d decided to come up with a native term for it. My idea is that it’s borrowed from whatever culture named it—perhaps the Asgardians. For use in Shiväisith, I’d just stick with ether. It’s easier to get a handle on.
I can’t say in film they pronounced it like [aj]ther. I remember [ɛ]ther. Anyway, Malekith pronounced it correctly - [ɛ]ther.

Maria was a younger sister of one of my friends. I normally would see both of them whenever they visited me or I came over to their grandparent’s place. We had one hobby we loved to share: sewing. We were sewing clothes for various dolls every summer, just the three of us. Maria was always helping us both with little tasks she could handle until she was considered grown enough to hold a needle. When the girls grew up, they stopped visiting their grandparents in summer but my little hobby stayed on. As I’m not back home, I can’t show you any photos of whatever remained after we moved flats :(
This is one of my best childhood/teenage memories.
*hugs* It is absolutely lovely and sweet! And a bit, bittersweet.
I’ve just read this comment on a Facebook fan page, “He [Christopher Eccleston] quit because he thought he wasn’t getting paid enough per episode. when it comes to selfishness, worst doctor ever. when it came to acting he was ok”.
I mean, seriously, guys? Forget for a moment that Nine is my…

We all need a cold shower and right now, my friend, don’t we? ;-)
I’m afraid a cold shower is useless to meee!
