What to expect when you’re expecting (The Hobbit Fan Event on Monday)

The Nov 4th Fan Event for The Hobbit is upon us and at this point all we can do is speculate what treats are in store for us.

As I was going down my Twitter feed it was wonderful to see so many of my RA friends score tickets to see the cast in either NY or London.

Magzy asked me whether I was jealous and I truthfully answered that yes, but not in the obvious way.

It would be much worse if Richard was in London as it’d be extremely difficult but doable to try to make it work.

As RA is in NY, beside logistic issues (like a 10 hour flight), the US isn’t getting a tourist penny from me until they get rid of tourist visas (seeing that we ARE citizens of the EU).

Therefore, there wasn’t any way in hell to bend reality to fit with my fangirl desires.

I have to admit that reading fan encounters always delight me and I hope our fellow admirers show us with insider info.

 I’m always proud of the conduct of our fandom members on RA impact, despite probably being on the verge of exploding, they usually manage a calm cool exterior and represent us well.

It’s also easier for me to live vicariously through another fan, I can just imagine myself in this situation, I giggle (and sometime squirm) reading the details and I get a rush that is probably almost as intense as the lucky fan felt on meeting Richard… almost…

The event will take place at 11pm on Monday AT (meaning Agzy time), so could be worse.

I’ll be bundled up in bed with my laptop, refreshing the page every few seconds, trying not to think about having to get up the next day at 6am.

I’ll give watching everything go down in real time a go, although it felt odd during 2012 SD: Comic-Con and I quickly abandoned trying to keep up.

What can we expect?

Difficult to guess.

My bet is that because there are four host cities, we aren’t going to see that much of Richard, especially that he’ll be joined by a teenage girl Orlando Bloom and much of the attention will be focused on Legolas (the name comes from the Scottish ‘lass’ and Lego because he delivers his lines like he was made of plastic… OK, not really…).

The event poster claims there will be live Q&A and exclusive footage shown, but I’ll be the judge of how exclusive that footage feels ;)

The event is dubbed a FAN event, so I hope we’ll be able to satisfy our FAN appetites!

What would you like to see on Monday?

Are there any questions you’d like Richard to be asked?

Resist Gizzy

Dearest Friends,

I’ve been a bad bad fangirl and blogger, but I didn’t think it would take me so long to get back in the saddle.

I’d like to thank everyone who emailed me during my absence here, it really means to the world to know someone out there is thinking: Hey, wonder whatever happened to that weird chick?

I’d especially like to thank a certain someone who rhymes with…. eerrrr… Lervetus (not a real word…) for bringing Richard on board to cheerlead me.

Your support has been invaluable, so Thank YOU for being there when I literally thought I wouldn’t write a page worth a damn (not to mention a degree).

The academic part of my degree is done, and I’m happy to report that I’m satisfied with the results.

As to that other little matter of my thesis… well, let’s say there’s still miles to go before I sleep.

As some of you may know, I decided to change my topic from fashion to…..

Drumrollsssss….

Fandoms and fanfiction!

Yup, obsessive admiration has now bled into yet ANOTHER part of my life, but in my darkest hours (spent tearing my hair out and packed with sleepless nights worrying that I couldn’t/wasn’t writing) having a topic so dear to my heart was my saving grace.

As I hark on about myself you’re all thinking when I’ll shut up and start behaving like a proper blogger contributing to an esteemed fandom.

Well, I do intend to make these blogging thingies a norm (heavens help us all…) but I need to ask something in return, the greedy thing that I am.

I have just completed my second chapter and I am moving on to the last one which may prove to be the most challenging.

In it I will be using a number of my favourite fanfics as a case study, and I need to call upon you (yes, YOU!) to help me get enough data to fill the last 18 pages.

I hope to get feedback from fandom members,  fanfiction authors and readers.

That is why I need to call upon you my dear friends, as I need to pick your fangirling brains in order to complete this last (and most challenging) chapter.

Guy of Gizzy Survey_edytowany-1

I have constructed a tiny (and I MEAN tiny as in 10 questions) survey that will take you under 3 minutes to complete.

It’s a basic list of questions to get me started on my findings and will serve as an intro to the chapter.

It would mean the world to me if you took 3 minutes out of your ogling hot men time to take it!

Here’s a link to the survey:

Just so you don’t think I’m asking for something for nothing in return!

The sooner I complete the chapter (with your help), the sooner I can turn my mind to the topic of a very vital Birthday celebration that is taking place in August.

Continuing last years tradition, in return for your help I promise another Operation Armitage Birthday Competition.

Gizzy Competition

Yup, for 7 days to countdown towards Richard’s Birthday (also known as Armitage Day) you will have a chance to get your hands on an Armitage goodie.

That’s right!

I’m insulting your intelligence by bribing you with a week long Armitage competition with prizes, as well as guilting you into taking my damn survey, a move worthy of Gizzy himself :)

That’s what friends are for!

Oh, by the way, did I mention this survey you can take AND pass on to others?

No?

Well here it is again:

Click here to take survey

And hell! It’s good to be back! :)

Ps. Click on image to see Gizzy riding his horse naked…

Ok, maybe it’s a link to that damn survey I’m cramming down your throat…

Again, Gizzy would approve of my tactics, although would probably object to chafing caused my horse-riding in the duff!

Another fan encounter + Write me maybe, Richard!

I adore waking up to wonderful Armitage news.

Yet another fan got the chance to meet Richard.

Suzi describes her encounter at RAC (see pic below).

A huge Thank You to Suzi for sharing!

She says Mr Armitage is nothing special to look at, quite grumpy, refused autographs and pictures, and was a thoroughly unpleasant man.

OK, not really, but I think this encounter may break the back of some RA fans who long to meet him ;)

Me?

I live vicariously through other lucky RA admirers!

I’m still waiting on a message from Richard, although it seems that it’s the last days of shooting in one location, so things have been busy for our precious on the set of Black Sky.

My sister has another theory about why we haven’t received a post-Armitage Day message yet (apart from one simply never coming…).

Our fandom consists mostly of fab females.

In order to write a message to his female fans, Richard would require a set of:

Yes, ladies, our dreams have come true!

In many countries females were given the right to vote in the 1920s, but it wasn’t until the good people at BIC finally realised we simply can’t use those ordinary masculine pens, that we are now able to exercise our rights.

The pens as slim (we are women after all, and that word should be our mantra), pastel coloured, and some swear that in the place of a dot, it draws little glittering hearts!

And no, they don’t vibrate…

I can hardy contain my joy, and I’m not the only one who’s bursting with pride and emotions!

Don’t take my word for it.

Read about the revolutionary aspect of *gulp* giving women a pens of their own, but be warned.

We ended up spending hours yesterday evening, crying with laughter.

After all, who thought it was a good idea to give a woman a tool that is mightier than a sword?

What’s next?

We leave the kitchen?

Get a job?

The mind boggles!

Thanks BIC for identifying my needs.

Now get Richard Armitage a set, pronto!

A nice set of pastel-coloured, super slim pens, to write a message that any average Mary, Jane and Sally can understand!
