2015 Armitage Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #21

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Weekly Round-up is more than a day late this week. Ooops. I’ll get into that in a separate post because I have some pics I want to share with you, but suffice to say the Round-up had to be pushed back. However, I continued to collect links as I went along the week, working from London, so nothing was lost…

Anyway, not unexpectedly, this week’s Round-up is dominated by all things SDCC and Hannibal. With Armitage’s appearance at Comic Con, tumblr was buried under an avalanche of original pictures and fan art, caps and gifs from San Diego. Good times! Those of you who are following my tumblr may have already seen a lot of the links that I am posting today because instead of my usual practice of saving links in a WP post, I simply “recorded” the note-worthy stuff by reblogging them on my own tumblr. And boy oh boy, the booty this week is bigger than *ever*. This could be an overload. Let me warn you – you need a good bit of time to get through this. This is the longest Round-up I have ever compiled. And sorry, no, I could not whittle it down to less. It *all* has to be shown… You’ve been warned…

So, sit back and enjoy Armitage, Dolarhyde and the Red Dragon…

  1. Hannibal round up 21Let’s start off with something really original: Here’s a Bagginshield Modern!AU that I found really interesting, drawn by radiorcrist. Funny!
  2. Our very own “Tree” or myrichardtreehouse continued and finished her 14 days of Armitage fore-arm goodness. This is day 12
  3. A concentrated study of Dolarhyde’s/Red Dragon’s face from maivolchica
  4. Tosquinha is really taking fan art/gifs to another level with this more-than-cute animated drawing. I am fully behind this headcanon
  5. Another one by tosquinha – do you know what ‘boopies’ are?
  6. Jassy2101 has posted Suzanne Phillips’ pics of RA at the book signing – I am beginning to like aviator sunglasses…
  7. Whoa, that is one intense look on Dolly’s face… captured by missnu93
  8. More of the beautiful eyes? Yes, I agree with richardarmitage-confidential
  9. Cuuuuuuuuuute. Heyerette has captured two “Traumprinzen” (dream princes) at an intimate moment
  10. Riepu10 capped an animated Richard in the TVLine interview. Pic 1 and 5 *sigh* and *awwww*
  11. Is Richard a “really sweet guy”? He seems to think so. A gif set by applefia2036
  12. Fan art comic from rutobuka2 – awwwwwwwwwww
  13. Is Fuller a true visionary? Well, gimmethehobbit makes a valid case in this comic. And the Army fully approves…
  14. OMG – why had no one thought of this before. Kili and Fili texting – this is hilarious. An idea by summerdecadence
  15. Filisleftmoustache knows what the Durin boys *really* thought… LOL
  16. A nice edit of Thorin and Proctor by mariondworld
  17. Maivolchica has given these pics from the Pannibal a nicer background
  18. Richardbirdwitharmsitage is back!!! This kind of stuff never fails to make me laugh. Especially the flower crown
  19. Ligeiaresurrected makes a convincing case why Richard Armitage is perfect for the role of the Red Dragon
  20. Bodymore-murderland is wondering about Dolarhyde’s backstory – this is a nice starting point for discussion, I think
  21. Jassy2101 asks “Why is he so handsome?” Guylty asks: Have you noticed *that ONE hair* that is *still* always out of line???
  22. Iamnotswarley has figured out the difference between Hugh Dancy and Richard Armitage
  23. When I saw applefia2036’s gif of the “Armitage pronunciation quip” from the CraveOnline interview, my first thought was that Armitage seemed to be experimenting with his sideburns. The return of killer Guy sideburns??? Guylty approves and can hardly contain her excitement
  24. Short list from jkrfan7 of all the projects RA has lined up – prolific man!!!
  25. I love these edits by richardcfarmitage – particularly the first one. Man, that HITS. RIGHT. IN. THE. FEELS and almost looks like a pro photo shoot
  26. Jollytr compares how Richard says ‘hi’
  27. Airportgate from jassy2101’s POV. I think she is spot-on
  28. Jollytr’s dash did a thing that resonates with everyone in the Army, I think. Man, when the man smiles like that, I am utterly helpless…
  29. Idontfindyouthatinteresting posted a cap of Dolarhyde at work. Unfortunately *my* attention was focussed on the raspberry. Yep, sorry, I am shallow that way
  30. When you look at crystalchandlyre’s pic set, it is evident that those two were meant to play together one day…
  31. I can’t get enough of sinnaminie’s plushies. This RL RA plushie is just the cutest thing ever – and more than up-to-date with the very special flower crown
  32. Theagentofhydra has another photo of RA at the book signing – with a very special Red Dragon
  33. Whoa, great fan art by hydrophobic-pirate of RA in Fuller’s Star Wars jacket
  34. Great comparison of a pivotal Dolarhyde/Reba scene by existingcharactersdiehorribly – Armitage/Fiennes/Noonan
  35. Does Richard have *any* clue at all??? LOL – fringeofmadness has got the gifs that show the cluelessness
  36. Larygo posted some back love in glorious mega size. Guylty is momentarily speechless and only says “F**********ck” 😀
  37. Christ on a bike!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Slo-mo disrobing by circusgifs. Dearest Fanny – my insurance will be in touch with yours as soon as the pacemaker has been fitted to my heart…
  38. Antatius made this beautiful fan art and dressed Pop!Thorin accordingly
  39. LOL – I had not seen this image, tweeted by @delaurentiis – Derpitage? But REAL!!!
  40. Am I the only one who agrees with the ArmPitage Army???
  41. I think this is required, obligatory viewing for anyone – put reddolarhyde’s gif set on continuous loop
  42. The first of existingcharactersdiehorribly’s gifs probably ought to put me off and creep me out. It doesn’t because I know the backstory of Dolarhyde – and I am transfixed by the eyes. That is so utterly Dolarhyde and NOT Richard. Amazing how he establishes the character with nothing but a creepy stare. Masterful!
  43. ROFL – jassy2101 has captured RA with a look that reminds me of a creepy, bad year book photo. Yep, bad. But it made me giggle out loud
  44. *gulp* radiorcrist puts tight briefs on Thorin. I think this is my new headcanon. Or my new sexual orientation?
  45. Jollytr has put Heather Siemon’s tweets of her FANTASTIC photos of RA at the Pannibal into a set
  46. look-back-look-back-at-me is very observant. One does not simply overlook such parallels…
  47. Clematis70 sees a connection between Dolarhyde practicing pull-ups and an earlier tweet by Armitage. What do you think?
  48. And a concentrated look at Armitage’s hand and body work by clematis70 again
  49. I totally agree with nienna15’s comment
  50. And this is the perfect ending to this week’s round-up overload – I couldn’t agree more with mellarkian. I’m off to confession now

Still alive? Yep, you had been warned. Fabulous, fabulous stuff. And maybe this is a sign of things to come. Because from next week we will get the Red Dragon episodes… Get ready for the onslaught, ladies. Buy yourselves a comfy chair, industry-size supply of tissues (probably more for the purpose of wiping up the drool than the tears) and prepare to be awed. We owe him awe, after all 🙂

Guylty ❤

  1. Ha, once I want to be the 1st!!! Without having looked at your “gesammelten Preziosen” at all. No time, when one wants to be on top!! 😉 😀 (Will do….)

        • See, I only wanted to keep it short (no excessive energy extravagance, due to the ongoing (for me!) brain melting heat wave down here in Southern Germany!). Thought Bilbo and Thorin are self-explanatory und der Pflicht ist Genüge getan and creator’s credits are kept ☃ Now, due to long and winding sentences…I need to rest……. 😛

  2. Thank goodness you’re back….and with a tidal wave!! I’ve been mourning the relative drought of chatter this weekend 🙂 I should have plenty to tide me over now!!


  3. 50 OMG! Sind ja Ferien, wir haben sonst nichts zu gucken 🙂
    Fili, 15 ist Klasse, bei 6 kann man mal wieder die normale Haarfarbe sehen, steht ihm und gefällt mir 🙂
    Der 2. Blick bei 25 gefällt mir, ist so entrückt, so weit weg in Gedanken ❤
    31, der ist zum knutschen – den hätte ich gerne!!!!
    36, diese GRÜBCHEN!!!
    37 Striptease, yeah ❤
    Ja, zur Zeit bekommen wir optisch schon einiges geboten, in jeder Hinsicht. 🙂
    Auch wenn ich die letzten 10 Minuten der Hannibal Folge einfach nur grauenvoll fand und mich kaum traue weiter zu schauen….


    • Saure-Gurken-Zeit mal ganz anders, was? Echt, um das alles zu verarbeiten, braucht man Urlaub – und anschließend Reha.
      Grübchen, ich sach dir… Da möchte man handgreiflich werden, oder? Und mal eben schnell unter die knappen Unterhosen schnalzen…
      Nummer 37 hat mich auch einige Minuten fasziniert *hust*. Hat was sehr beruhigend-beunruhigendes. Ahem.


      • Ja es gibt unglaublich viel Haut zu sehen, die gehen in die Vollen! Da zucken die Finger, aber auf dem Bildschirm fehlt die Wärme 🙂
        Bin ja echt gespannt was noch so kommt….aber der Weg dahin wird recht hart befürchte ich…..


        • Ich hab vorhin irgendwo eine ausführliche Zusammenfassung der letzten Folge gelesen, und mir kam schon ohne die Bilder fast das Abendessen wieder hoch. Oh man! Das wird eine Härteprüfung, ganz ohne Frage. Ich bin froh, dass Hannibal hinter Gittern sitzt und Mason Verger unschädlich gemacht wurde. Aber der Ausblick auf den ersten Dolarhyde-Mord hat mir schon den Rest gegeben. Die schön symmetrisch angebrachten Blut-Spritz-Spuren allerdings lassen darauf hoffen, dass es mit überästhetisierter Abstraktion ans Werk geht. Das heißt, man schaltet die Empathie aus und guckt nur auf den oberflächlichen Eindruck. Or so I tell myself… Wir werden sehen.


          • Ich habe die letzte Folge (nicht vom letzten Donnerstag, die davor) gesehen und die letzten 10 Minuten waren echt!! eklig. Nr. 7 wartet schon auf mich 😦
            Da ich das Buch gelesen habe, kann ich mir ungefähr vorstellen was kommt und da ‘Hannibal’ ja gerne in Blut schwimmt, äh schwelgt, war der trailer noch recht harmlos befürchte ich….
            Soll ich Dich erinnern was Dolly mit seinen Opfern alles anstellt? Oder besser lieber nicht?


            • Nö, lass mal, ich hab das noch recht lebhaft vor Augen. Aber ich mache da – natürlich mit ganz klaren Hintergedanken – Unterschiede zwischen dem Ekelkram um Hannibal und der bisher noch nicht gesehenen Mordserie von Dolarhyde. Liegt sicher auch daran, dass das im Buch nicht soooo intensiv besprochen wurde. Kann natürlich sein, dass Fuller da im Dolarhyde-Blutrausch schwelgen wird und mich damit komplett überrumpelt. Mal sehen, wie weit die Selbstüberzeugungskräfte bei mir dann reichen werden…

    • 🙂 Glad you like it. In a way it serves as a slow intro into Hannibal… the latest trailer looks quite “challenging” for naive little innocents like me. But I am gonna bite my tongue and watch 😀


  4. 50 ist ENTSCHIEDEN zu viel. Jedefalls hast du uns wieder ein fettes Paket aufgegeben. Mach bloß weiter so! Quäl mich bitte, bitte quäl mich…..
    Ne, aber ehrlich, mich überkommt immer so eine (selbstfabrizierte) Hetze beim Durchstöbern. Außerdem würde ich gerne gleich und sofort auf meine Eindrücke reagieren, müßte dazu aber parallel mitschreiben und ganz ehrlich, wer will das schon = Hektikgefühl bleibt.
    Mal sehen, was ich mir da so nebenbei aufs Notizzettelchen gekritzelt habe:
    23) Es sieht wirlklich so aus, als ob er an den Killersideburns arbeitet. Ganz schwerer Fall von Schmacht. Irgendwie fehlt mir der Guy auch ein wenig. Da hilft auch kein Odögiiii 😀
    40) Verstehe ich das richtig, dass hier das haarige Element fehlt? Jaaaaa, damit habens die Amis ja massiv. Mir ist das mal aufgefallen in den Film Hugo Cabret. In den nachgestellten historischen Filmsequenzen dort sind haufenweise irgendwelche Jungfrauen zu sehen. Und die haben ALLE ausnahmslos rasierte Achselhöhlen. Wers glaubt wird selig! Da geht die BBC schon offensiver mit der Männlichkeit ihrer Helden um (Porter).
    45) und die Bilder von Heather Siemons gefallen mir wirklich fast alle ausnahmslos gut. Ich weiß ja nicht, wieviel Schwund sie hat, aber die Ausbeute ist regelmäßig stark hitverdächtig.
