Armitage Weekly Round-up 2016/14

Today you are getting a bit of a hotchpotch post. Mainly because the tumblr loot is not particularly huge and therefore needs bumping up with other bits and pieces. But also because said other pieces kind of boost my mood, and so I want to share them. But let’s get to what you came here for. This is this week’s tumblr round-up. Apologies for its shortness…

Round-up v2

  1. Anyone there with a plaid kink? Redroselady50b has the perfect post for you
  2. Approach with caution! This is a gif set by kendaspntwd of chaRActer deaths. Might cause you upset but is pretty comprehensive
  3. Interesting edit of the latest stills from Berlin Station. By richardcfarmitage
  4. You don’t see this very often: A gif taken from Baby!Richard’s turn as Angus in MacBeth. Posted by clematis70
  5. Ghisborne has proof that Richard is cursed. “I hate water scenes” – yeah, that is apparent, dear!
  6. Damn, but Lucas is gorgeous! Gif set by ghisborne of Lucas in Spooks 7×02
  7. Every time I look at this scene from ITS (which sits at the beginning of the movie), I think that they must have filmed this particular scene in pick-ups. Check kendaspntwd’s gif set – am I wrong in thinking that RA’s hair is half way to delicious Berlin length (and therefore longer than in ITS???)
  8. LOL. Queenoferebor1204 definitely got me with her Saucy Saturday contribution
  9. *cackles* *rofl* – this post by lotr4everhobbit
  10. Clematis70 has been inspired by myrichardtreehouse and starts an audio “Guess the chaRActer” game. Listen and guess
  11. Armitageadmirer has made a “non-controversial edit” of the Ponso photo tweet *coughs*
  12. I suppose I missed the whole Valentine’s love poem pressie that Richard presented his fandom with in 2015, but this audio clip of RA reading the poem, and the poem underneath, nearly made me cry. Posted by poetictouch

Moving on to some additional stuff. If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you may have seen that I am currently teetering on the brink of a nervous breakdown or potentially matricide. My mother is over for a visit, that’s all that needs saying. I have been distracting myself with some picture editing – a handy way of pretending to be busy on the computer while actually just drooling over pretty pictures… Anyhow, I was tinkering with some of the Leeds pictures and decided to try and get rid of the distracting backgrounds. Here are the results:

RA Leeds background clean Neckitage no backgroundWorks alright from a distance…

Oh and here’s a souvenir from London. Meet the Mango King:

Mango KingOk, I don’t think I can artificially prolong this post any more.

Have a nice weekend, everybody.

  1. Mums can be annoying! Hang in there, dear Guylty!!! Keep on doing these wonderful edits! *drools on keyboard* Oh and I looooove mango, When I’m in the UK I eat a lot of it. It’s not so readily available here in Hungary. Wish you as much patience as necessary to avoid mumicide, but ready to start collecting bail money for you should you need it! ❤

    • I think I might go through all the Leeds pictures and edit them one by one.
      And thanks for the moral support re. mother’s visit. I actually have to admit that there are always two parties in every fight, so I have to work on my own attitude. For some reason I always feel on the defensive with her…

  2. Excellent round up and love the edit!!!!

    Moms. I went beserk getting ready for my parents to visit in February. They stayed not even 18 hours. They’re threatening to come back down sometime this summer…. along with other… guests….

    Sigh.

    What a lovely way to start my weekend! Inhale darling. This too shall pass!

    • It will pass, you are right, and I simply have to acknowledge that I may not be without blame myself. I think I am carrying around a huge amount of guilt, and that puts me on the defensive even though my mum does not necessarily attack me at all… Ah well…

  3. Thank you for finding the time to collect these in spite of everything going on. So sorry it is so stressful annoying when parents never treat us as grown ups and separate from themselves Hold on and hope the bit of photo therapy helped Wish Sir Guy could step out from the screen and give a stern talking to 😊can’t imagine her not listening to him 😋hopefully that image cheers you up a bit Big hug x

  4. Heh, heh, twenty-four hours is usually about my limit. And I stay in a hotel when visiting family, LOL. Enjoyed the “non-controversial edit”–it puts the focus where it ought to be, on that gorgeous face.

    Like

    • You know, I have considered that, too, except my mum would feel horribly offended. A lot of the stuff is actually connected to “but what will the neighbours say”… That’s the usual manipulation approach.
      I quite liked the way RA looked in that picture, too. Pity about the silly sign…

  5. Hey Guylty, thanks for making these tumblr round-ups! There are some great great things there, I agree, but I still cannot understand why it is so popular. I have the Love poems on my phone, “I Carry Your Heart With Me” and “Annabel Lee” are my favorite, but an all time favorite is RA reading “The The Life That I Have”. When he says “yours and yours and yours” , he ticks all my boxes 🙂

    • The love poems really passed me by. I don’t think I downloaded them at the time, and when I looked later, I couldn’t get them anymore. I might have to check again.

  6. I know it sounds awfully old-fashioned but time with children and parents is not infinite, so esteem every day (even the strenuous ones), later you’ll have only the memories…
    But back to presence: nice collection (as always). I’m perfectly happy with the plaid kink (never seen the checked shirt in a Hobbit background, but it looks goooood) and No. 8 got me, too. This smirk!
    And your Mango King somehow reminds me of the old “Mambo Number Five” by Lou Bega, Thorin dancing on the fruit pieces and picking them up with his little sword…

    Have a nice weekend with your mum!

    • You are absolutely right, Camassia. I should cherish the time I have with my mum. Mind you, she is only 20 years older than me, so I am already picturing ourselves as two old bags, constantly at each others’ throats… I hope that we will eventually return to some sort of normality when my mum has found a way of dealing with her grief for my father. At the moment, she is still crying every day, and much of it is self-pity, which I react very badly to…
      Mambo Number Five – oh God, I just had this image of Thorin dancing to that… 😂 Well, he supposedly loves music…

  7. Thanks for rounding up another bunch of RA bits. Could you put your mum work helping you make shrines? Maybe she needs something to keep her busy during her visits. She could be your assistant in charge of drilling holes for candles, or something. Just as “there is no crying in baseball”, there is no crying in shrining. It’s in the rules, somewhere.

    • You know what, I think you were on to something there. I didn’t quite get my mum to work on a shrine – I can imagine her response to them (“you are mad, you are obsessed with that man, this is a dubious waste of time”). But I did some crafting nonetheless and created lots of origami decorations. I let her make one, herself, but she had no patience. But at least it calmed me down. I have planned a nice outing to a castle for today, so hopefully we will all be distracted…

  9. Herzlichen Dank für deine Mühe und ganz besonders für das Gedicht. Es ist soooo wunderschön – verursacht Gänsehaut an jeder erdenklichen Stelle ❤
    Ich hoffe, deine Mutter und du findet einen Weg, eure gemeinsame Zeit (wieder) miteinander genießen zu können. Gegenseitige Erwartungen sind oft eine komplizierte Sache…

    • Ich muss wirklich mal in diese Gedichtaufnahme reinhören…
      Und mit den Erwartungen hast du den Nagel auf den Kopf getroffen. Sie und ich erwarten etwas, das der andere jeweils nicht erfüllt…

  10. Bei der 1) habe ich erfreut festgestellt, dass er nicht allzu häufig kleinkariert ist, sorry trägt 😁 (wobei es ihm steht *hust*). Aber bei dem letzten Foto wurde ich so dermaßen von seinem offenen Hemdkragen aufgesogen und habe mich visuell in der Brustbehaarung verfangen, dass ich erst nach einigen Sekunden, und nachdem ich meine Brillengläser vom Spontanbeschlag befreit habe, in der Lage war zu beurteilen, was für eine Sorte Karo das ist. 😏
    Und du hast hier den Kragen nicht abgefusselt…… Wahrscheinlich aus Gründen der Authentizität.😊
    Besuch rum?

    • “visuell im Brusthaar verfangen” 😂 Nun stell dir mal vor, das Bild mit dem Lederjackenschneider wäre größer und schärfer (…) vorhanden… Ich glaub, wir würden alle hyperventilierten…
      Stimmt – den Kragen hatte ich erst nach Erstellung des Round-ups entfusselt… Könnte/müsste ich mal austauschen.

  11. Ah yes — the “coming to terms with the surviving parent.” I wish you much fortitude. Things may change, if only slowly.

    re: 7 — I am pretty sure that was shot in pickups, because at the point at which they were doing pickups for ITS, Nathan Kress tweeted a still of that scene.

    • I am not giving up hope that things may change… Or that I may change. No doubt I am part of the problem…
      Ah, and thanks for confirming what I thought re. hair length and first scene in ITS.

  13. Keep calm, keep calm… Actually I’m late getting to this roundup so your purgatory may be over by now! Thanks as always for the roundup. I love the audio version of guess the character! And can never get too much of lovely Lucas. #4 is fascinating – that gesture we know so well. #8 😂😂😂

    • Last day. It actually hasn’t been too bad, but I am suspicious of the peace…
      Lucas… 😍. I wonder whether we will be able to see Daniel Miller as a new chaRActer, with Lucas looming so big in the background…
