2018 Armitage Weekly Round-up #14

The round-up is back! Again, a couple of weeks’ abstinence has its advantages – bigger and better! But before I get to that, let’s first get to the result of the raffle for my anniversary RAPS. Thank you for all your comments – and the sentiments expressed in them. I am still blushing. You are very kind – and you make it hard to stay away/easy to come back. ❤ I was also thrilled with the enthusiastic response I received for my suggested “Danesther” spin-off of BS. Interestingly, there I was, fending off suggestions in the comments that I should spin that yarn further and create a fan fic along the Daddy Daniel premise, citing lack of time for the reason why I couldn’t. Well, it seems as if the universe has heard your pleas as it looks as if there may be a lot more free time in my future, with my favourite/major client having just informed me that a strategic reorganisation of their company will result in disposing of my services. Um. Good-bye frequent business trips to London and plush hotels… I wish I could fangirl for money. After six years, I have quite some experience in *that*…

Anyhow, that piece of news is not meant as a downer. In my experience, when one door closes, another opens. Whether there is professional shrine-making in my future or a return into photography, I embrace the change. And now, without further ado, to a pleasant duty I would like to perform. Announcing the winner of the latest RAPS…
Congratulations to nordlicht! Please send me an e-mail with your address and your RAPS will get to you asap!

    • Porter’s tenderness is what makes that action character so compelling. Once again an example for RA’s extraordinary talent at visualising the many layers of a character.


  1. Sorry about the job, but glad you will have time for more important things like shrining. Porter gifs are the best. My eyes move back and forth, face .. arms..face..arms. Katie, who is she and why is she in the shot?


    • hahaha, our minds work alike. That was my first thought, too… The answer is, I am not sure yet. Little Ms Bling has been having issues with the battery charge for months and months, and I know that the bosses are not fond of this particular model of MacBook, anyway, so fingers crossed that they may let me keep it…

  2. Great to see a new Round-up, G. LOTS of fun, creative stuff! The spread of “fan-fare” really reflects the breadth of RA’s choices AND fandom. THAT’s what I like!! Hope a great new opportunity comes your way soon job-wise and that you totally enjoy your hiatus.


    • Yes, it’s lovely to see the variety of stuff that fans are interested in and working with.
      Thank you for the good wishes 🙂 – I am looking forward to relaxing a bit.


  3. Too bad about the nice travelling job, but hopefully something even better will fill the space.

    A Daniel fanfic? That would be fun. Looking at the S1 and S2 pics, I like them both!


  4. Catching up here…….welcome back after your holiday and congratulations on your blogiversary! And to Nordlicht on winning that lovely shrine. 🙂
    Sorry to hear about your job finishing but I’m sure something will come up that will make the most of your creative talents. *hugs*
    Once again, great round-up and thank you for the link love. Gifs can not only now be in a bigger format but I also learnt after some time how to correct the aspect ratio. I cringe when I see some of my early squished efforts!


    • Thank you mezz, there is regret mixed with relief when it comes to my changing work status. And a lot of happy anticipation of more time off to indulge in my creative endeavours.
      And I see no reason why you should cringe about your early gifs. They have always been GREAT!


Let me know what you think!
