The last day of 2016 is finally here. Despite missing 10 round-ups this year, I do not want the last week of the year to be one that I miss. Maybe this will while away a couple of hours for you before you celebrate New Year’s Eve tonight. Or for my antipodean friends – for whom midnight is approaching in 4 minutes (at the time of writing this), it may distract you on “the morning after”.
- In case you missed them, here is the second half of Sinnaminie’s 12 days of Christmas all in one post
- Happy New Year fan art by maraiad
- Aniarafan2’s Christmas fan art
- More Christmas fan art by serik27
- I have never read any fan fic by fizzy-custard (I think?) but she is asking for feedback on story ideas – or you could possibly find some of her already written fics on her blog
- Cuuuuute – Richard as a Slytherin, drawn by lis-alis
- Drldeboer very helpfully has written up Thomas Shaw’s “confession” – and illustrated with pictures from BS 1×10
- I actually have not read this, but if you are after a bit of Thornton distraction, here is pollysthings’ fan fic drabble posted via rafrustration
- Characteristic Armitage mannerisms on Miller here in a gif set by ghisborne (and lots of mascara, I think…)
- Twins reunited after a really long time? This is what happens when circusgifs meshes two gif sets of Daniel Miller…
I am having some trouble getting the idea of the “Armitage twins” out of my head now…
- Christmas fan art from mezzmerizedbyrichard with really lovely wishes
- And mezzy’s new year’s post – lovely
- Jaysis, Armitage is so far off the mark with this richardarmitagequote, he is practically in outer space…
- Pollysthings’ Christmas fan art
- Including this oldie but goldie by gadomingo, reposted by richardarmitge not only for Guy, but for the hilarious caption #truth
- Extremely rare linking to the Jane Hotel shoot on my part – because queenoferebor1204 picked two absolutely gorgeous shots/captions
- A sweet modern!Thorin fanfic by meganlpie… Thorin as a history teacher…mh, history nerd Guylty likes it
- Sir Guy trying to be nice by nfcomics in the What a Guy wants series
- A resounding yes to this richardarmitage-confidential
- This advice on how to deal with fandom frustration was not specifically aimed at the Richard Armitage fandom, but I thought it was really interesting and well argued. By fahye via not-that-kind-of-hot
- I leave you with clematis70’s new year’s post of Richard’s most fun social media moments – it says it all!
I’ll be back with the customary “annual review” later.
Thanks for reading the round-up – and to all the tumblr peeps who continue to create fan art and other posts of note that make the cross-over to the blog.
