Oh my – RL Armitage is overshadowing everything at the end of week 3, 2013. Looks like the staged reading was a great evening for all – performers and attendees. I am not linking to any of the tumblr-based accounts because they have already been spotted and passed on I think. Instead let me distract you with the best of the rest, tumblr edition 😉
After last night’s performance and the classy, considerate fan interaction of our favourite man I feel more vindicated than ever:
BTW, it never ends. No sooner do I post a Weekly Round-Up, goodies for the next instalment of the tumblr best-of appear. This week it was a mere three hours after posting Round-up #2 that I saved my first link for Round-up #3. I am not sure whether my soul will escape this new compiling venture unscathed… The things I see, people, the things I see… I might need therapy. Is there a RArmy therapy fund somewhere? It could get expensive… For the newest of the new in Armitage fanfiction check out The Arkenstone’s round-up. Agzy’s overview over the week in RA blogs is here. Go forth and spread the blog love. And in good blogging manner, don’t forget to leave a comment 🙂
As you have noticed by now, the tumblr round-up is nothing but subjective.
How else could it be. I may have to put out a bit of a policy statement here, I suppose, before people wonder why I choose some stuff over other. I am a bit of a edit-fiend. I do not reblog or recommend manips, but I do like pastiche and collage because they add something entirely original and new to a previous version of a photograph. Plus, I strive to show you something that you have not seen *like that* before, rather than recommend a previously seen old chestnut image with a new colour cast . The creativity of the users amazes me all the time, though, and I really love the combination of graphic design, words and images. That is what tumblr does best – plus the often hilarious captions and comments that accumulate underneath a post. They make the “old chestnuts” worth seeing again if that is not blasphemy… RA in any old image is never a “chestnut”.
So here is this week’s round-up – tumblr edition #3:
- MrPuddingston combines a quote in the caption with a word cloud that makes you think. The picture of RA is not too bad, either…
- Thorin’s long tresses just lend themselves to this kind of fun by theuntitledpiece
- I still haven’t read those books, but when I see the fan art that is already being generated by Armitage4Clairmont, I feel very tempted…
- Has Richard got memory problems?
- BTW, it’s not just carnal, you know…
- This was just so unexpected and unlikely, I nearly burst out laughing loud. Future musical plans of Richard’s?
- What a range!!!
- Have I already mentioned hair?
HairHere is more. Gifs by richardrmitage, put into a set by zwergenfee
- Richard’s recollections of New Zealand, compiled by mezzmerizedbyrichard. I am soooo jealous! I wanna go!
- A Hobbit AU by ohsofili that made me laugh (my bad, I shouldn’t have), especially at the appearance of the “celebrity lawyer from London”. Inspired. I’d like to see this as a Downton-esque mini-series
- I loved the tragic truthfulness of this gif set by theheirsofdurin
- It’s still time to print a 2014 calendar with all things RA (part1) and (part 2)
- A gif set by richardarmitage-poland that takes you right back to the start of his career
- And for this week’s “blast from the past” I bring you the “Armitage Twins” with a special dedication to Angie (hint, hint x), courtesy of richardrmitage aka gaporter
