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 ūüôā

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 ūüėČ


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 ūüėČ

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 1

I’m introducing a new¬†series to IWantToBeAPinUp¬†that will appear each weekend and will feature RA blog posts that have caught my eye in the past seven days.

I have enlisted the cooperation of Arkenstone and Guylty to comb through the internet in search of RA, OT, Hobbit and fandom-related goodies.

We’re busy bees so we can’t be everywhere at all times, not to mention that I personally have the attention span of a drunk ant, so please feel free to add links to things that you’d like to share both here or over at the other two blogs.

You can also check out my BlogSpot blogroll to find out what bloggers have posted recently.

Please consider leaving comments and likes at blogs you visit ūüôā

Armitage Weekly round-up week 1

Armitage Weekly Round-Up Week 1

This week is going to be a bit of a mess.

I’ve included some Christmas posts in the round-up and may have linked to posts that have already done the rounds, so forgive me, next week should be better organized.

I’ve ended up including things from almost 2 weeks, so there’s¬†plenty to pick through.

I’m also introducing a Golden Oldies section that will highlight a few amazing¬† posts from the past.

the arkenstone weekly woun-up fanfiction

Arkenstone is doing an Armitage Weekly Round-Up: Fanfiction which features some of the highlights of what our writer fandom friends have to offer.

Guylty armitage weekly round-up tumblr

Guylty has braved the wildest of jungles to compile the Armitage Weekly Round-up: Tumblr so you can catch up on the mayhem that corner of Armitageville has to offer.

Spread the love 1 Richard Armitage

January sees the kick-off of the spReAd the love campaign (click here to learn more about it).

It will last throughout 2014 and celebrates the generosity of this fandom in local communities.

Additionally, each donation or act of kindness noted till the end of February here or here will mean a £1 donation to Armitage’s Just Giving Charities (to a £200 max).

All you have to do is leave a comment at either Jazz’s or Obscura’s blog (anonymously if you like) or send them an email.

Thank you to the generous collaboRAtor who has pledged this sum!

And remember, a good way to spReAd the love is to spReAd the word ūüôā

xmas goodies

Christmas/New Year’s¬†Goodies:

Firstly, Christmas courtesy of Richard Armitage Bulgaria Facebook, came a little late this year.

I definitely approve of this Guy of Gisborne prequel stuffed in my stocking!


Angie reminisces about Christmases past (very moving) and there’s a new video to celebrate the season too.

This Cinderella will go to the ball!

  Morrighansmuse knows, much like a wizard, an RA Christmas video is never late, she also reflects on fangirling in 2014

Guylty’s present from her hubby may well take the cake. Well played Sir!

Herba offers a counter-offer present. Again, well played Madam!

This is one lapland I wouldn’t mind visiting

Frenzy gives herself a treat

No more fear, no more guilt, no more shame! Hear, Hear!

Grati celebrates the end of the year with an important anniversary (Congrats!)

Christine has had quite the year, so spread a bit of love her way

Siriuslygrednforge reflects on her year of Richarding and blogging

ra and ot

Non-Xmas posts:

Can someone tell me¬†why KatherineD doesn’t have her own blog? She takes on the BBC in a guest post

CDoart weighs in on the fourth wall issue, so does Frenzy

KatherineD has got her mind on the (hobbit) money and the money on her mind

I didn’t think Richard is old enough to be of interest to an archaeologist

An amazing Geek calendar for 2014 featuring a few familiar faces

A bit OT, I think Smaug needs mouthwash

Surely being spoofed is a sign of success?

Talking about twisting reality, I hope Richard’s dog Spinee is OK

Jonia’s Armitage wine is coming along nicely. Bottom’s up!

¬†I’m sure time would fly if a certain MI5 operative was keeping tabs, but what happens if you especially love a particular picture? get stuck on that month?

Thorin get’s royally screwed

Grimmella takes on the issue of Tolkien and gender

Fabolaktuko goes on her own unexpected journey and takes on another Middle Earth challenge (heavy page)

This is why Richard wears such tight pants!

Slightly OT: does anyone else think Bard is a bit huba-huba?

Morrighansmuse plays the Hobbit number game

Richard suits up for DOS rounds

Not enough arrows in the world could point to where I’d do it…

The Durin Boys have been having a tough time of it lately

Fandom Compulsion, it always starts off so innocently but the process is the same no matter who the object of your affections is…

I agree with Kathrynruthd, RL stuff such as working interferes too much with fangirling!

Bloggers celebrate their annual blogging results: Serv, Fedoralady and Knightleyemma.

Congrats and many more!

Golden Oldies

Golden Oldies:

Each week I will be dusting off some of the best posts that have been published within the RA fandom.

If you’d like to suggest a post/series please link in comments.


Have you met Stick-figure Richard?

You can check out his entire history here.

He resides over at Nat’s place and is the lothario of the stick-figure world.

You can even follow him on Twitter, although he’s rather too busy¬†living his jet-set lifestyle to be tweeting about it.

Check out other Armitage Weekly Round-up’s courtesy of Arky and Guylty.

Also, please include any other links I may have missed in comments.

¬†See you next week ūüôā

You’ve taken RA blogging too far when:

Hair growth Armitage

You know you’ve taken RA blogging too far when:

– instead of getting up to wee when nature calls you continue struggling through just to make sure the RA post is acceptable and you can hit “schedule”

– you post 3 (count em’ THREE!) posts in a row about Richard’s hair and the chase that up with another one nit-picking through the same photos

– you are beyond happy when someone identifies the brand of an RA item of clothing (loathed knee-pad pants are apparently Belstaff)

– your laptop battery is dying but you can’t tear yourself away from replying to comments and wish you had some solar panel system installed so you wouldn’t have to deal with interruptions

Рthe ratio of RA to non-RA stuff on your computer is about 4:1

– EVERYTHING is a potential blog idea and EVERYTHING is¬†related to Richard,¬†yet you’re stumped when you sit down¬†to write

– in general, everything can be explained, analysed, focalised, and soothed with the use of an RA pic

– you think attaching Richard’s head to stranger’s bodies is an appropriate form of amusement and a productive way of sending your time

– dinner, housework, laundry- none of them get done

– you are vocal in your appreciation of someone’s arse… publicly and repeatedly…

– you are facing the most important day in your academic career and yet instead of preparing for it¬†your main concern is that you don’t have posts scheduled for the next few days


I too had a normal life once…¬†
