So, Pilgrimage is out and reviews are in. Strangely, not that much resonance on tumblr. Or maybe not strange – small premiere with no wide release. I’ve been voraciously gobbling up the reviews – both from fans and from media – constantly veering between horror (“good grief, I’m not that much into guts ‘n’ gore”) and irrepressible curiosity (“but that sexy scar…”).
Ok, dream on, Guylty, keep deluding yourself… Let’s launch into the weekly round-up instead. Here goes…
- This was already posted way back in 2015, but cro-gall’s fan art of Raymond de Merville is more topical (and beautiful) than ever
- Totallyradioactive ticks off questions 8 and 9 of my RA Challenge
- Wow. Bagginshield shipper or not, but this kind of imagination really deserves a link. By b-a-g-g-i-n-s-h-i-e-l-d
- Did I already post this “sketch” of Thorin by moodyhedgie? If so – it’s good enough to be seen twice
- Old – but a delicious TBT Wellington. Posted by tinkertaylor1212
- That new picture of RA BTS of BoF (are you still following all the abbreviations?) – nicely cropped to the essentials by jassy2101
- I totally loved this gif set by riepu10. I don’t think I have ever seen moving images from RA’s sting with the RSC. This is baby!Armitage as Angus
- LOL – now here is a film idea… Not sure whether I would really want to see that. It’s so off-the-wall. But heck, it has Dolly in it. Thanks for the laugh, drsassychilton
- Mezzmerizedbyrichard shows us what she has bought because of RA
- A little interlude, in case you need cheering up after all those reports of Armitage being violent and gory. Tinkertaylor1212 concentrates on an old, but good one. *thud*
- Mainly linking to this for the arrogant, nonchalant look on Thorin’s face in erebor-kingdom’s comic
- Clematis70 asks again “Guess Richard’s character” – part 23
- Nfcomics hits the nail with What a Guy wants
- Honestly, the money-saving efforts at the BBC… spotted by the-gentle-gamester
- The 27th of April – an important day for Clematis70. An interesting story with nice pictures
- And a couple of further RA Challenge posts – #6 by mezzmerizedbyrichard, with gifs of Percy Courtenay
- and #7 courtesy of totallyradioactive15 – check out what she bought because of RA (I love love love the jewelry piece!)
Sorry to all tumblrers if I have missed other RA Challenge participants!
Otherwise – have a great, long 1st of May weekend! Monday is a bank holiday, hooray!
