I don’t know about you, but are you also already getting a tiny bit prematurely sentimental about the fact that LLL is nearing the end of its off-Broadway run at the Roundabout Theater? Thanks to a three-month run of live performances, a theatre engagement of Mr A’s has the potential for SD encounters and many promo gigs – which means that fans get more than their fair share of new photos, videos and info, both official and fan-made. There is a certain rhythm and soothing monotony in that – knowing that
almost every day you can look forward to a new account or a photo or a video or an article. Added bonus – it’s kind of nice to know what Mr A is up to on any given day. And I don’t mean that in a freaky way; just in terms of understanding what his daily routine may be, and not having to live with the suspense of waiting for a new, much coveted announcement of the current/next project…
But all good things must come to an end, and I find myself getting sentimental even before the last curtain drops. To lighten my mood, I have decided to spread a little bit of cheer. It’s the season to be merry 🎶 and I have come up with a cunning plan. I would like to give back to a fandom that has really brought a lot of joy to me in the last few months, and I thought it would be fun to have a series of raffles for you, my fellow fans.
So for the next twelve days of Christmas, I am planning to post a raffle per day – open to all who are united with me in their admiration for Armitage. As the title of the raffle suggests, there will be 12 separate raffles, which you enter by simply leaving a comment on the individual post. Each raffle will be running for 1 day, and a winner will be randomly picked as soon as the raffle ends. I intend to post each raffle at 8am in the morning, but you will have 23 hours to react, if you are interested in the respective item that I am giving away. The first raffle will be posted on 13 December 2016.
The items are all Armitage-related, of course – don’t expect too much, nothing valuable, just some fan items which may be fun, silly, pretty, even practical. The raffles are more about the *fun* rather than about a precious *prize*. And most of all, the Twelve Days of Christmas raffles are a thank you to all of my known and unknown fandom friends and fellow fans – who organised tickets for their friends, who posted their pictures and videos from the SD
and the theatre *tuttuttut*, who tweeted and posted accounts of their experiences in New York, who bought souvenirs of the play and sent them to their friends who could not attend, and particularly the American and New York fans who hosted and entertained visitors to New York, and shared tips and tricks in the run-up. Your generosity in sharing news or hosting us, was much appreciated! Not sure if you can actually “dedicate” a raffle, but this fandom love project is in your honour!
So, tune in tomorrow, 13 December, for the first raffle, let’s start the count-down to Christmas – and let’s forget that we must say bye-bye to the daily appearance of the most photographed baseball cap in New York City, soon.
