With a two-week break, here is the round-up again. I was away for the first of the two Saturdays I missed, and then last weekend the #cRAftingForCharity auctions were happening, so I had to forego the weekly catch-up with all things tumblr. Apologies for that! The good news is, that that means I will have loads to post today because I did note and reblog a lot of posts during my absence – I just didn’t have time to compile it in my usual Saturday morning post.
On a different note: Not sure if you have noticed it, but I usually illustrate my round-up posts with a banner that takes a photo from Richard’s current projects. With Hannibal
sadly over and nothing out right now, I am at a loss what to use. Any suggestions? I somehow think that UATSC has the best chance of being the next project, so I am settling on this for now:
I think I am in record-breaking mode here – you better get yourself a cup of tea and make yourselves comfortable, because this is gonna be looong…
- Look at these felted cuties by halapipita, aren’t they adorable? They are right up there in huggability with Sinnamin’s plushies
- I am fully behind this richardarmitage-confidential
- Awwwwwwwwwwwwww – Richard is a true artist then, according to this richardarmitagequotes
- Loved this edit by visenayasnow
- ilariaeugealtomasini put together a profile post on Guy. Or rather, a post on Guy’s profile. Always welcome!
- And even further back in time – Mr Thornton. This is a gorgeous gif by armitgd, b/w, the backlighting… I could watch this forever
- Gorgeous painting of Thorin by cro-gall
- esparzist “dissected” Armitage. And boy, was I distracted by some of it, particularly the pale skin in the open colour. Christ almighty!
- Love this gif of Dolarhyde by armitages-angel
- I know, I know. We have seen this all before. But really, you can’t look often enough at circusgifs set of Proctor washing. I was enthralled, and I suddenly noticed heartbreaking details that I had overlooked in the heat of the moment in the theatre… the ribs on the back in the first gif, the way he pauses with his hands on his face after splashing water on in gif 2, the armpitage, the way he constantly interrupts the washing to still and to rest – in frustration, despair, exhaustion? Ok, that’s enough now – you see what I mean…
- fringeofmadness collected tumblr tags of Francis Dolarhyde and displays them with the appropriate imagery. This is LOL funny
- tosquinha draws two different kinds of Thorin – both great (although my heart beats for version one, and yours?)
- Goodness gracious, circusgifs. What have you done??? Ahem. And I actually like to imagine that sort of above me *coughs*
- Four Armitages, plushie edition, in a day – fabulous work by Sinnaminnie. And one of them the newest medieval knight. Check that fringe!
- Riepu10 has it in spades. Well, she has Richard in spades. In playing card spades…
- What’s your opinion on this richardarmitage-confidential?
- Hehehe, I loved the middle name given to Thorin by middle-earth-obsessed. Gif set
- This comic by iraya gives us a glimpse of toddler Thorin. So cute
- LOL – mini-bilbos’s lego Durins getting up to no good. Kids, don’t try this at home!
- Wow, this Dolarhyde gif set by rcarmitage-poland has it all. Nice!
- LOL – there was a whole new story there in Hannibal, visualized by sympathyforthecannibal
- Riepu10 celebrated World Beard Day with this yummy edit (even beardophobe Guylty was transfixed…)
- Mrpuddingston put out a set of Armitage pics that I didn’t remember seeing before. Apparently from the Brazil junket
- Again, a totally heart-breaking gif set from applefia2036, of Proctor. Observe how he reaches for Elizabeth’s hand in gif 1, and then visibly shrinks into himself when she removes her hand. I am only noticing these details now, in the gifs, despite having see the play from close-up three times… And I am quite awe-struck with the level of detail that Armitage put into the performance
- not-that-kind-of-hot wished Happy World Beard Day. Guylty wishes Happy World Throat Day *ahem*. Priorities, eh?
- applefia2036 added to the “Straight Outta…” meme and made me laugh
- This North & South sequel fan fic on writeandwronged had completely passed me by until chapter 4. I am linking to chapter 1 – it looks promising
- Dolly all cute and cuddly in this fan art by xxkaseixx
- Look at this teeny tiniest of Porter smiles, caught by mezzmerizedbyrichard
- And finally – if Richard Armitage were to write an autobiography, would this be the cover? rubybeutelschild’s suggestion
Right, if there is any time left of your weekend now, have a good one.
Lots of love,
