So, as you may have guessed from the regular round-up morning slot at 8am SHARP on a Saturday morning, I usually compile the round-up the night before so that it is ready for the morning
and I don’t have to get up at an ungodly hour. Last night was one of those evenings where I had totally forgotten my round-up duties. It only crossed my mind at 10.15pm that I hadn’t yet compiled the list. “Ah well, I’ll go down to the laptop and quickly put it together”, I thought to myself. “Sure, it’s only going to take 20 minutes.” – Ha! Far from it. Turns out that this week was really busy over in tumblrland. Seriously, readers. Go make yourself a large mug of the beverage of your choice NOW, lock the door, set your phone on silent and find a comfy chair from which you can peruse a mega edition of the round-up! Have I ever had 30+ items on the list? I can’t remember…
Are you ready? Here we go:
- Did you ever check out redsirionsoldrastuff? Here’s a beautiful Portah edit
I’m not sure whether I have seen this sweet fan selfie from Newcastle (?) before.Posted by deepestfirefun. Edited before posting: No, not old but new, apparently. Just saw it RT on Twitter today
- Sorry to be repeating resirionsoldrastuff, but well, Guy Day just can’t be ignored
- And dito (see above)
- I’m right in the middle of The Murderer’s Son, and this edit by deepestfirefun really hit me
- Riepu10 has been very quick, giffing the latest interview from the Snowman audio book
- Not quite sure which of TV guides this came from, but jassy2101 has a scan of the newspaper article about the BS release in the UK
- Not a new picture, but Baby!Armitage is always interesting. Posted by raaddiction
- Drldeboer puts all the promo group pics for all three seasons of BS together in one set
- For all Guy fans I am pointing to spockemon’s tumblr – lots and lots of Guy there
- And linking to another post by jassy2101 because she cropped the selfie with RA and CJ Tudor into a nice pic of RA holding the book
- Pinglyponglypeep is trying to reconnect with RA fans from way back
- FAO all who have had trouble with Digital Theatre: Apparently some people are getting their access to the Crucible back. At least according to simplybentley
- Further info on The Crucible access via simplybentley
- A rather unsavoury part of fandom, as experienced by sinnaminie
- Is the BS costume department on our side? Theycallmeheaven has a theory
- For someone who calls him/herself clumsy-grumpy, this is a rather nice piece of fan art
- Partiesainteasy-blog argues that RA should open a Snapchat account. Kind of rings true
- Oh, I haven’t seen a richardarmitage-confidential in a long time. This one is nice!
- I don’t know whether I have seen the fan video that is linked in thorinoakenshieldin221bwithlupin’s post before, but I am including it here for the great gif below it. Truth!
- What a fantastic find and edit by jahoe1960. Love it!
- And staying with the hand movements, there’s this little gem observed by bornin1991m

- Absolutely stunning fan art of Lucas North by alexandria-monik-art
- In case you like crafting, Sinnaminie is organising a Richie Holiday Swap again. Details in this post
- Ha, we have just been discussing this. Team Shrubbery or Team Spotless Lawn? Gothicsouthpaw31universe is asking on tumblr
- LOL – tofutiger is absolutely right. PS: Age is relative
- If Armitage wrote a biography… this would be the cover… imagined by rubybeutelschild
There! Told ya it was long!! Long enough for me to forego the “week in review”. Well, I already worked that off in my Audible Junk
et post on Wednesday, anyway.
So, have a nice weekend, everyone! I am heading off to the theatre at lunch time today. I am watching “Mr Bates” in St Nicholas.Ok, or rather “Higgins”. Sounds like an interesting play, can’t wait.
Have a good one,
