I had a brilliant
half day with Helen yesterday. After chatting over tea and muffins we had a lovely meal in my favourite French bistro, an after-dinner walk through Dublin (including Trinity College), followed up by a G&T in Dublin’s premier hotel The Merrion. Helen brought me lots of goodies for shrining – and these gorgeous earrings. Cat lovers will love these (see right). I think I will have to fight off my daughter for them…
Helen stayed the night in my house before travelling on today. My house is *not* the premier hotel in Dublin; in fact, it is rather old and cold. But I have ways and means of making my fan friends feel hot… *evil laugh*
In case you are feeling cold, too, I am offering you the following by way of internal heat. Lean back and enjoy!
- Guy has no time for questions… at least according to nfcomics’ What a Guy Wants
- Clematis70 takes her audio quiz to number 22 – can you guess this character?
- Frame maker extraordinaire riepu10 also delights with her gifs. Here is Francis Dolarhyde’s first encounter with Reba
- Two pieces of news for me in this post by clematis70: a) John Porter’s middle name
and I am still laughing about it, and b) his birthday. Crap, born in 1974??? I feel old!
- In this set by totallyradioactive15 Daniel Miller looks like a mixture of Lucas North and Francis Dolarhyde to me
- Yeehah, and we have our first gifs of Pilgrimage. Here’s a set by ghisborne.
Christ, is that really Raybo on the horse??? The moustache (?) really fooled me
- You can never have enough of the new stuff, so here is another set of gifs from the Pilgrimage trailer, courtesy of angelkostan
- A look behind the scenes in sinnaminie’s workshop: This is how a plushie is assembled
- And since I hadn’t linked to mezzmerizedbyrichard’s RA challenge answers yet, here are her responses to #1 and #2 – with gifs
- Fan fiction idea: Imagine you are in a tight elevator with Daniel Miller. This is what you are looking at.
Now take the story from here.Gifs by ghisborne
- Totallyradioactive15 replies to #3 and #4 of the RA challenge – and I am including it because she shows some of her fan art
- Clematis70 has put RA’s short voice bit in the Pilgrimage trailer into an audio post. Il parle avec un accent francais?
- *woof*. The wonders of Snapchat filters? Thanks for amusing us, life-is-righteous!
- LOL mezzmerizedbyrichard. Had to include that for the caption!
- I really like how hannibatchsmuse describes Armitage’s characters. Heart-breaking, indeed!
- I think this is a fan candid from Leeds. Not sure whether I have seen it before, but I think it is a really nice pic of RA. Posted by freya-asatru
The unwritten rule of compilations is – and I have known that since my mix-tapes days
(now I have dated myself…) – not to repeat the same source/band/singer. So, sorry for a few names popping up several times in this link list. But their submissions are too good to ignore. Many thanks to them – and all others – for supplying us with pretty gifs, funny posts, and other droolworthy material. Much needed – and much appreciated.
Leaving you with a Saturday mood booster – old, but good. Just because I can 😉.
