Armitage Weekly Round-Up Week 9

armitage 9

I hope spring is slowly heading your way and that’s put a spring in your step 🙂

This is week 9 of the round-up and, as always, you can get the best that Tumblr has to offer over at Guylty’s.

Here’s a round-up of posts that have caught my eye this week.

The list is by no means exhaustive so feel free to leave links in comments.

This week has been abundant in RA news bits and bobs, so when you click on the posts I have linked to, make sure you check out other ones too.

The spReAd the love Children’s Book Challenge is in full swing.

I promised myself I will read all the books that meant so much to my fellow Armitage Admirers when they were children.

Talking about contributing, don’t forget to vote for Richard at the Jameson Empire Awards.

He’s nominated for the best supporting actor, so get voting, especially seeing that he’s up against some tough competition.

I’m not sure about repeat voting at Empire, but it’s worth giving it a try 😉

It’s also worth keeping an eye on The Anglophile Channel as they, and more importantly Richard, are teasing us shamelessly.

Here are some lovely pics of Richard from the day and I for one want to know what was in the glass Richard was sipping on, I think it’s good ol’ vodka

The full interview shall apparently be out at the weekend so I’ll link when it pops up.

Talking about Armitage (and when are we not?), remember when we were keeping our fingers crossed for Richard to play Ross Poldark in the latest adaptation?

Well, it seems my second favorite choice meaning Aidan Turner landed the part *does happy dance*

Don’t worry, Richard is involved in a new project and although there are no cravats involved, I am nevertheless thrilled.

RA/The Hobbit/OT posts

This week many bloggers shared their top ten pictures of Richard:

SueB, Servetus, Guylty, Siriuslygrednforge and reader’s favorites.

Perry would have my… well, certain fleshy body parts for earrings if I didn’t link to this 😉

Benny in a leotard gets me every time

Obscura serves up some Antique John S

Happy Blogiversary Servetus and LadyOakenshield

I do like a guy with a double triple quadruple chin

Mulubinba continues to get emails from Dibley

A “Richard climbing a ladder” picture I hadn’t seen before which can certainly evoke Romeo/balcony fantasies

Phylly on APM

Have you ever wondered about Bilbo’s bathrobe?

On loving North and South (and don’t we all find a tiny piece of ourselves there?)

Minion/dwarf crossover? Too adorable!

Remember to check out the Tumblr round-up from Guylty and I’ll see you next week.

Armitage Weekly Round-Up Week 7

armitage 7 valentine

This is week 7 of the Armitage Weekly Round-Up.

To see what the written word was up to this week, check out Arkenstone’s fanfiction round-up.

As always, Tumblr has been buzzing with excitement and Guylty has compiled a list of the  cream-of-the-crop posts.

This is a special edition of the RA Weekly Round-Up as we celebrate Valentine’s day and nothing brings to mind a little bit of good ol’ fashioned luvvvv like Richard Armitage!

Thorin 5

This week sees the first RAworld Secret Valentine, as lovingly created by Guylty (thanks Miss!).

I don’t know about you, but I really enjoyed going through all the cards, vids and letters and it warmed the cockles of my frozen heart to see evidence of friendship, affection and a heavy sprinkling of RA admiration.

But then we’ve been spReAding the love for a while now!

Valentine’s / Love posts

Here’s a Richard Armitage fan message video from The Anglophile:

Guylty celebrates Valentine’s with pizzazz

I agree with Obscura, nothing says love like a bit of blood sacrifice!

With two extremely hunky Valentine’s from fantasy land no bother there are no RL ones to just pale in comparison

The only thing better than an RA bum post is if it’s placed in a Valentine context. The perfect storm

If you know what I do for a living, you’ll have little doubt I regard grammar as a bit of a turn on 😉

Shut Up and Kiss Me! is an entirely appropriate thing to tell Richard on Valentine’s Day!

Perfect song for Valentine’s Day AND a Friday! Good one Kelbel!

Celebrate Valentine’s like a Fangirl! (advice for next year!)

tumblr_n10uyo4kK51s4dhjbo1_500

RA/Hobbit/OT

Uttering: “Richard, I’m behind you” may be a dream come true or cause to call the authorities 😉 Anyway, congrats Magwi!

No catchphrase can beat the original: “Hey, Richard Armitage, I think your G-string is a bit tight…” (even stranger still, my spell-check insists it should be “you’re g-string”…).

Is Thornton a man of low self-esteem? I wish I could kiss it and make it all better…

If Harry is your pen/email pal, you’re in luck! Plenty of news from Dibley

And he’ll cook the books for you too!

I always thought Richard was a Beanie Baby 😉

More on Richard’s sartorial decisions! (if good-looking people don’t know how to dress well, I say they should just go around in their undies/nude!).

*grabby hands* No, I don’t need that Moleskin Hobbit notebook, shut up, I want it, my precious…!

All together now:

Hey Ricky, you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind!

Hey Ricky! *claps hands” Hey Ricky!

Talking about music, here are the notes of Middle Earth

On misogyny and being a geek

Armitage Army card

I hope you have a great week and I’ll be back tomorrow to show you what I got from my Tumblr Valentine from Switzerland (yes, there’s chocolate involved!).

Armitage Weekly Round-Up Week 6

armitage 6

Welcome to week 6 of the Armitage Weekly Round-Up.

As always the list is by no means exhaustive so please leave links in comments to posts you found interesting and I did not include.

Arkenstone proves that the pen is mightier than the sword (sorry Guy) and has compiled the hottest fanfiction offerings of the week.

Guylty put aside Valentine’s issues long enough to compile a list of what Tumblr so lovingly provided.

It might not have been the best week for many of us (please remember that there are people you can talk to), but thanks to a good Armitage cheer even the most gloomy of days become brighter.

heart-1

Case in point, Guylty is going full (luv) steam ahead with the RAworld Secret Valentine!

I’m super excited about it, especially that I can’t remember blogs ever collectively celebrating Valentine’s Day and yet we spend the rest of the year sharing our Armitage luvvv!

If you haven’t signed up but have had a change of heart and would like to participate, I’m sure Guylty wouldn’t turn you away, so come join us!

Talking about a little love:

BfhdKdJIYAAkif7

Time Square? More like Smooch Square!

And on the topic feelings, we are still spReAding the love!

tumblr_n0lomwJYNF1trbvqvo1_400

RA/Hobbit/OT posts:

Fedoralady relies on an old friend to keep her warm

Talking on Gizzy, he can give a jumper a beating, right?

Sometimes a gal just has to take a step back (but hopefully will come back soon)

Not sure about Captain America without the dashing geeky Heinz Kruger…

Guy of Gisborne counts down the days

Swooning Maruca on being a bunch short of a fruit basket for your online crush

Moody Thorin has finally reached his final destination and is guarding a very special place of fangirl worship

Not good when it says strapping and you accidentally read it as strap-on…

And the award to the thief of my heart goes to…. Oh, and the Anglophile thingy too

Kelbel75 is still on her Alphabet Movie challenge and she visits the Dales and uncovers some hidden treasures

tumblr_n0l10k9EUB1qdj6sno4_250

Thank You for traveling with Armitage Airways!

I’m tempted to pack my bags and go live in a hole

Dream a little dream of Richard (and what could be better…)

OT: KatherineD recs the best Aussie show TV has to offer

I can’t help hearting that sassy elf!

Welcome to the world of blogging, Girl who stumbled over Richard!

I guess that’s a no to Armitage, Richard Armitage!

Malice Aforethought dodgy mustache coming right up…

…with a side-dish of Richard booty!

OMG Obscura, that just gave me feels

OT: Nothing wrong with a bit of Tom on the side!

For those who know “period drama” doesn’t refer to PMS!

tumblr_n0l10k9EUB1qdj6sno6_250

Golden Oldies:

This post on (alleged) clothes swapping between Thraduil Lee and Thorin Richard reminded me how much I love to read posts about celebs and their fashion choices.

index

One of the most interesting blogs that specializes in nitpicking Richard’s attire is Jonia’s RA Vogue and Style!

(photos open OK in explorer but not in firefox for some reason…)

Jonia digs deep and takes one for the team to stare at Armitage pictures and try to determine what clothes he’s wearing.

I hope there’s plenty more to come, so continue digging Jonia 🙂

I hope you enjoyed week 6 and I’ll see you next week for another round-up!

Armitage Weekly Round-Up Week 4

Holy cow, how is it already week 4???

Here’s another dose of RA/Hobbit/OT posts I’ve picked up throughout the week.

EDIT: Guylty brought to my attention that the links don’t open in a separate tab/window, I’ve gone back and changed the settings, so fear not and click away 😉

You can keep track of RA blogs here.

My list is by no mean exhaustive, so please feel free to add links in comments.

Also, please consider leaving comments on the posts you visit and just so you know winter won’t end and the frost won’t leave till you do! OK, not true, but I’m not above a little emotional blackmail…

armitage 4

Arkenstone has rolled up her sleeves and gone through a sea of words to unearth the gems in fanfiction for this week.

Guylty once again braves the Johnlock and PenisFriday shark-infested waters of Tumblr and has provided us with another weekly round-up.

fan-event-badge

There are still posts popping up for the RA Fan Flash Event, so make sure you check them out!

The event was so impromptu, but it was wonderful to go back to our fangirling roots and celebrate where we all came from and where we’re heading.

I for one wouldn’t mind actually ending up somewhere near RA, so Universe, make it happen!

tumblr_mzvj49pEnH1t3vj62o1_500

The New York Pinter/Proust event still lights a spark in our hearts (not to mention other places…) so here are posts written on the subject from this week.

On a personal note let me just tell you how much I’ve enjoyed them, not so much the Armitage side as the accounts of fellow Armitage admirers.

You all rocked, not to mention, judging by pics, you seem to be quite a good-looking bunch 😉

Armitage Besotted‘s account of the event! You rocked the evening, lady!

Zan allows us to vicariously live through her, all in three parts: 1, 2 and 3

Confessions of an Armitage watcher!

There’s no party like a play cast party!

Proof neither Richard nor our fandom friends are figments of our imagination, which is a relief, let me tell you…

I would be delighted to either put on or take off Richard’s mask…

Curiosity killed the cat, Richard! But seriously, what were you thinking?

Links to most of Richard’s performances at RAC

tumblr_mzvj49pEnH1t3vj62o2_400

RA/The Hobbit/OT posts:

Richard doesn’t appreciate his bits being frozen (allegedly…)

My mind is much too dirty to use the word “selfie” and not giggle, but I tried not to be so childish as I read about the Armitage selfies

If I ever need mouth-to-mouth, I’m keeping my fingers crossed Richard’s the one who does it!

What a great week to be an Armitage fan indeed! It’s the gift that keeps JustGiving!

Good to know I’m not the only one a bit crazy about fanfiction (Hobbit, Sherlock, RA… you write it, I’ll read it…)

Which Magical Tolkien Creature are you? I’m a Hobbit, I guess because of the hairy feet…

Lady Oakenshield resists running her fingers through Richard’s hair! I think you should have just gone for it and then ran away to avoid being knocked down and escorted out by security!

What do you get when you cross Trudy and Milton?

Arkie touches base and braves the cold (seriously, what is up with the weather? let’s send some cold Down Under so they can save on AC electricity bills…)

Meme Madness: Tolkien Edition! (made me giggle…)

An interesting take on Tolkien and strong female characters

Talking about strong females, another RA fan encounter! Adorable!

Obscura, you had me at “ancient nudity”!

From nudity to a wide variety of headgear… (Polish text, very pretty pictures)

This is why the eagles couldn’t take the dwarves all the way to the mountain

Adorable Smaug socks, what about some Thorin ones?

OT: Arkie’s Movie Alphabet and MorrighansMuse The Alphabet Movie Meme

Richard a member of the saggy bottom club? NEVER!!!

 I like pretty book-inspired trinkets *grabby hands* I’ll take them all please!

A letter to the cast and crew of The Hobbit

I’m not one for playing games (well, at least not of the computer variety), but Shadow of Mordor looks interesting if you like that sort of thing

When you’re ready to step out into the limelight, I’ll hold the curtain back for you, CC!

If it’s Thornton’s Mill and Queen’s Mill, does that make Thornton a queen?

How The Hobbit: DOS should have ended!

Guylty probably linked to this, but just in case… I sit in rooms full of people and none of them are ever Richard! Not fair! (thanks Serv!)

Is there a Gollum out there looking for his Precious?

tumblr_mzvj49pEnH1t3vj62o3_500

As promised, I wanted to offer up two sets of Golden Oldies to make up for last week.

Firstly, here are posts from Heirs of Durin which I found very interesting:

In Defense of Thorin Oakenshield

The post from August 2012 takes a look at Mr Majestic’s actions and analyses whether he is a hero, a villain, both or neither.

and

Legacy of the People: The Burdens of Thorin Oakenshield and Boromir of Gondor

A look at the broken and lost characters we hold so dear to us.

heirs-main-page1

My second choice was something a little different, but it seems the site is having problems and all the photos have disappeared 😦

I hope this is just temporary and I’ll be able to share my Golden Oldie choice next week.

guylty round-up tumblr week2

Guylty wanders the wild with interesting posts that have appeared on Tumblr.

It’s a tough job but someone has to do it!

As always, if there are posts that you’d like to recommend or I have overlooked, please post them in comments either here or at the other two blogs.

Spread the love 1 Richard Armitage

We are still very much spReAding the love!

There’s £200 to snag for Richard’s JustGiving charities and you can make that happen by having your act of kindness noted by the end of February!

RA Hobbit posts

Frenzy takes it back to fandom basics! She suggests we start with I Saw Something Fine… and here are further thoughts

Richard goes the extra mile crosses the street for fans

Don’t step on Richard’s blue suede shoes

Behind the scenes DOS footage, keep it coming please!

Jazz and the Headbanger’s Ball with Thorin

Jonia celebrates her blogiversary. Congrats!

Sometimes it’s easiest to express it with an RA character

Does Richard wear Spanx (what? it’s a valid question!)

Philippa Boyens fangirls (amongst other things)

I guess Richard and the cast are still not done with NZ

Airport pics bug me, but maybe mostly because I don’t see such beauty on landing… and a further thought…

On blabbing about Tolkien. Me? I blab on Tolkien, food, gossip and anything else in between…

How big is big enough to be a sex symbol? (and yes, I’m talking about what you think I’m talking about…)

Morrighansmuse looks at Obsessions of a fan girl

OT: Words that soothe and harm

Baby it’s cold outside, don’t forget your cardigan!

Polar Vortex Shmortex- Richard will keep you warm.

Confession is good for the soul, so we Armitagettes must be angels…

And we must be some strong angels because that level of majestic fabooshness can kill a gal…

Possibly the most important interview with a cast member of The Hobbit!

The cat with the best taste in men…

Age with pride like Thorin and show those grey streaks with pride!

Obscura actually manages to make the Olympic Games interesting

I still thing Smaug needs mouthwash

Zan’s back! Yay!

UPDATE:

Jazz tells it like it is!

Richard’s new project? I hope he gets his thespian on!

Perry digs up more on the subject here and there’s more here from RAC.

Golden oldiesBccMee will forever be the queen of Armitage collective challenges and her whole blog is post after post of delicious goodies.

She’d encourage readers to suggest photos, quotes and such, and she’d whip up the most amazing graphics and fanvids.

Check out the fun Summertime fun challenge where she has two RA characters battle it out in the strangest categories.

I honesty struggle to recommend the BEST BccMee post, you should just start from the oldest post and make your way from there.

porter_vs_monet_art_class

BccMee also creates  beautiful videos, like the one for Richard’s 41st B-day:

Check out the Tumblr Round-Up courtesy of Guylty and Arkie’s Fanfic Weekly Round-Up.

See you next week 🙂
