Shake, Rattle and Roll Hobbit Boys

Tomorrow I’ll be posting the rules and guideline regarding the RA Silent Auction.

I’m so excited as there are 20 items to date to bid on and they are really cool!

While I was creating the auction post my PS Elements 6 crashed and I had to upgrade to CS6 which seems awesome, but I’m having to learn many functions from scratch.

Shake rattle and roll1

I feel that while I’m busy organising the auction, Armitage admirers are continuing with their….well… admiration and I feel a tad out of the loop.

Never mind, I’ll be back, but till then here are The Hobbit boys showing us their moves!

And I will NOT be writing about the placement of Richard’s hands… let’s just assume it’s a line dancing move…

The (Almost) Perfect Storm of Fangirling

I had another post planned for today, but I couldn’t let this fangirling chance pass me by!

Every so often the stars align and one lucky spot on Earth accumulates (almost) all that is beautiful and just in the world!

This came in the form of the NZ premier of The World’s End.

I’ve already been excited about this science fiction comedy starring Martin Freeman and Simon Pegg.

The film follows a group of friends reattempting an epic pub crawl during an alien invasion, and what’s not to love about that.

Little did I know that the premier of the move in New Zealand (a shocker right there!) would bring out almost all the yumminess a fangirl could ever wish for.

Don’t believe me?

Here we go:

Firstly, looking ever so dapper in a suit is the lovely Richard Armitage, bushy beard and all!

Maybe a post one day regarding Richard Armitage and creative uses for that tie?

Suggestions and pervy ideas appreciated 😉

Next up someone who also even in the film, but apparently caused havoc on the carpet.

Here’s Benedict Cumberbatch sporting his Sherlock do:

The ridiculously funny Simon Pegg:

Apparently yesterday was Martin Freeman’s last day shooting The Hobbit and he was unable to attend due to prior commitments, which is a bit of a disappointment.

I also haven’t unearthed any news on whether Aidan Turner attended the event.

Anyway, the thing that never fails to amaze with British actors that six degrees of separation seem to be suspended where they are concerned.

It’s more like 2 degrees at best 😉

By the way, Peter Jackson posted a pic of Sherlock Benedict and Watson Martin reuniting on the set of The Hobbit.

As sad as I am that this  journey is over, these two need to pack up and get back to Blighty to finish up series 3 of Sherlock.

Anyway, after such a display of hotness and awesomeness I think we all need a stiff drink!

Here’s the trailer for The World’s End.

Happy Sherlock Day! Now give me some smutty M/M fanfics to make it all better…

The post title refers to it being 02/21/13 (as written in the US) today, meaning 221 13 (B) meaning the house number of Sherlock’s residence on Baker St.

Most people don’t know that I’m actually quite a potty mouth in RL, but I don’t really feel like going back and deleting.

Not today anyway…

It never ceases to amaze me, at the same time freaking me the fuck out, how life, and the way you look at it, can change in a matter of minutes.

Things are definitely pants right now and I’m still figuring out how to cope with certain situations.

I know some of my fellow RA blogger find comfort in writing posts, either as a way of escaping RL crap, or as a means of actually understanding the whirlwind events in life.

I’m not sure I’m able to do that (or maybe not just right now…), not because I don’t believe that I would find comfort in my online friends or doubt the sincerity of their words and wishes.

It’s just that I have a very hands-on approach to any crises situation, not allowing myself a moment of weakness.

OK, I did totally lose my shit when I called my BFF to tell him what was going on, probably freaking him out as I doubt he’d ever witnessed me crying during our 12+ year friendship…

When you insist on being strong for everyone else, there comes a moment when you have to react, and passivity is my way out.

Tumblr is perfect for that, impersonal, somewhat smutty, not too challenging.

Escapism at it’s best.

It’s not so much the need to run away, at least for some time, but what I find most soothing, that has raised my internal eyebrows (whatever the fuck internal eyebrows are…).

You’d think I would retreat to RA, his characters, The Hobbit, Aidan Turner, or something down those lines.

I really can’t explain my sudden interest BBC’s Sherlock.

I think it was spurred on by a Hobbit/Sherlock crossover fanfic I had encountered, but not bothered to read.

I’d seen the series a while ago and absolutely adored the modern take on my beloved Doyle stories, not to mention how lovable I found Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock and Martin Freeman’s Watson.

It’s not the series itself, however, that seems to capture my interest.

I’m so much more interested in Johnlock (a combination of John and Sherlock).

Now, I blame Durincest and Bagginshield for my sudden interest in: fanfiction in general,  M/M character pairing specifically, usually of explicit nature, but I’ll go for some angst every so often.

Damn you: Peter Jackson, Hot Dwarf Armitage and Hot Dwarf nephews, and especially talented smutty fanfic authors who know no boundaries!

What can I say?

There’s nothing like a character played by Martin Freeman finding himself utterly wrecked by another male character to brighten up an altogether grim day.

For the record, as much as I like Freeman as an actor with his wicked sense of humour, and he’s appeared in some of my favorite TV series (UK The Office) or films (The Hobbit), I’ve never really found him attractive as a man.

So how does he end up popping up in my favorite fanfics, usually in some compromising position (and I AM smiling and smirking as I type this…)?

Anyway, the first Johnlock fanfic I’d read, and one that I’m afraid has ultimately spoilt me for all others,  is A Cure For Boredom written by emmagrant01.

Just so we’re clear, this is definitely explicit and covers a range of topics of a sexual nature that some may find disturbing, but I found wonderfully distracting.

Just when the author deserved an online hug from me for perfectly capturing the characters of Sherlock and John while still managing to place them in the smuttiest (and sluttiest) of circumstances, it turned out she’d also written Alternate and Missing Scenes from “A Cure for Boredom”.

These extra chapters are mostly written from Sherlock’s perspective and it was just what I needed to find today.

Oh, it was like finding a banknote stuffed in the pocket of an old jacket when you thought you were skint.

“I was Wats-off, but then you turned me Wats-on.”

My delightfully weird escape, which I can’t explain, even if I tried.

BTW, the way I’m feeling now, I’d sacrifice Martin flying all the way to New Zealand to continue filming The Hobbit just to have him stay in London to film season 3 of Sherlock and provide a new fix.

That should tell you something about where I’m at at the moment.

I’d still love for Richard Armitage to make an appearance in the BBC series though, so maybe I’m not a hopeless cause…

Hobbit-Con and our Precious Richard Armitage

I had something else scheduled for today, but who the heck would want to read posts on any other topic than yesterday’s madness?

Hobbit-Con!

Just a few words on how it looked at my end.

Because I’m in the countryside, the internet connection is shaky at best, but I decided to join my Twitter friends to celebrate The Hobbit at Comic-Con 2012.

I had a blast!

We were waiting for the first RA picture to answer the most important question of all:

Beard or No Beard?

The answer is…

A beard long enough to be braided.

Our reactions to the appearance of our fuzzy friend was varied.

We were unanimous on the rolled up sleeves of the black shirt – a definite thumbs up!

We were also commenting on Martin Freeman’s hat.

All I can say is I wish it was perched on RA’s head.

He could definitely rock the retro look.

We were also commenting on how happy and confident he seemed.

My theory is that he’s channeled his inner Thorin, and that gave him the energy to project the sexy alpha male vibe.

Mr Armitage! We approve.

We might also put away the belief that he so loathes the film promoting experience.

He looked like a pro, and a man with a mission.

Thank You to everyone on Twitter, who made the experience so much fun!

A huge thanks to the following sites:

Announcement about the name!

On a different note, yesterday while we were busy on Twitter, I realized how absurd the @iwanttobeapinup really is, especially if you’re limited to 140 symbols.

That’s why I’ve decided to ‘come out’, as it were, as AgzyM.

So, on Twitter I’ll be @agzym.

I shall also be using AgzyM in comments.

I was adamant to introduce any name that could be traced back to RL, but this feels good 🙂

I’ll be using my iwanttobeapinup with agzym for some time, just so everyone gets used to it.
