Weeks later… Hello everyone! So sorry it has taken yet another weekend before I am getting to compile the round-up. Back in Ireland for a week, but with the weather beautiful, we set off to the sunny Southeast of the country. We actually went to Co. Waterford – a name that might be familiar to those of you who have watched Pilgrimage already. Indeed, Waterford is deemed the oldest city in Ireland – by virtue of having been a major Norman stronghold since 1170. In fact, the Norman conquest of Ireland started from there – with Richard de Clare the Norman lord to lead the fight. He is known in Ireland as ‘Strongbow’ – and his tomb is in Dublin’s Christ Church Cathedral. Anyway, we spent the weekend with friends who have just renovated a small Georgian house, perched above the harbour in Dunmore East, and had a lovely weekend with seafood binging and cliff walks.
But now in medias res. A four-week catch-up with what has been noteworthy on Tumblr. Since it’s going to be quite a lot, including reactions to Castlevania as well as Pilgrimage which are likely to amount to quite a few, I have decided to collect the links in various sections. Enjoy!
- A compelling visualisation of Trevor Belmont by Kukatimota2 – but on Facebook. So I am linking to con4cyn’s repost. In case of the
unlikelylive action version of the show, Armitage would really fit the bill
- Here we go, some fluffy Trevor fan fic that will warm your heart. By aboutthatcharacters
- For those of us who missed the boat on Castlevania the game – here’s a gif comparison… (tbh I prefer the show…)
- Trevor being bad ass, giffed by ethernalium
- LOL this takes the biscuit. Trevor B on the news. By insomniacs-inc.
- BTW, Samuel Deats, one of the makers behind Castlevania, has a tumblr. Here he has posted the title sequence
- A selection of Trevor’s snarkiest (and funniest) lines, by theunrequitedlover.
As fans you have the added benefit of being able to imagine Richard’s voice saying these
- Never would I have thought that Trevor could ever count as cute… but this fan art Trevor by zebrafeets-art certainly qualifies
- I actually think that bitchykhaleesi has a really good point… (Listen right to the end!)
- No idea what dream daddies are (and probably not in the right target group for it, anyway), but this looked fun. By dream-daddiest
- LOL – 0arcadia takes a shot at predicting season 2 of Castlevania
- Riepu10 has caught Trevor’s introduction…
I love hearing Armitage swear…
- Cuuuuuuuute Trevor by aberrantus
- Fantasy or anime – Armitage has got the rough hero down… Post by kevynthedevylman
- Yup. As I said above. Totally 100%. By fortunatelyclevercandy
- Have you already seen Sinnaminie’s latest Trevor Belmont plushie?
- Hm, some background, or lore, from the game. This is weird. Eh. Textsfromcastlevania
- Imagine Thorin meeting Trevor Belmont… nice idea by thorins-magnificent-ass
- A bit more Richard in this fan art of Trevor Belmont by youremyfanart
Ok, got to stop somewhere. The amount of Castlevania fan art is absolutely *stunning*. We are now getting into proper fandom territory! I’ll leave it at that – you can find plenty of it if you search for “Castlevania” or “Trevor Belmont” on tumblr. Let’s move on to the other new piece of work.
- Riepu10 has made a Raymond collage. Serious chain mail porn, if you ask me
- Who rode it better? You’ll probably guess *my* answer, but anyway… by Riepu10 again
- Anneofgreengables gifs Raymond
- Intense!!! Edits by ausschweifendemotte
- Raymond came, took of his helmet and checked his hair… Gif set by kendaspntwd
- Jahoe1960s comment on the pictures *rofl*
- Cro-gall puts her amazing talent into the service of Sir Raymond. Brilliant
- Shikin83 voices an often heard criticism by the Army as a reaction to seeing Pilgrimage
- Everytime I see a Pilgrimage gif, I hear Armitage’s voice with a French accent now… not sure whether that is really good *lol*
- Sinnaminie’s set of Pilgrimage plushies got something of a shout-out by the producers
- Ausschweifendemotte’s comment underneath her edit of a screenshot from the Pilgrimage BTS video 😂
- Riepu10’s moving Armitage filmography goes to part 5
- Is ‘Richard’ a good name for a romantic hero? mainhoonemily discusses the pros and cons
- Hell, if *that* stood knocking on my door… 😵 Gif set of Daniel Miller by ghisborne
- Throwback to BoF by Riepu10. PS: Richard can keep an eye on me anytime…
- *coughs* I think a lot of people felt like venusofsuburbia when it came to John Bateman/Lucas North
Right, that’s a start. I am staying home the next 2 months. Time to get back into the usual routine.
Happy start of the week,
