It looks as if the tumblr issues have righted themselves. I had no problem finding posts this week. No wonder – I had missed last week, due to my Belfast trip. So here we go, another year of tumblr round-ups. Frankly, I can’t believe I am still doing this 😂. I don’t think I ever foresaw that it would go on for five years when I took this on. It is such a pity that the fanfic round-up mantle has remained vacant since then… Is there really no one out there who reads fanfic and might be able to update us on *quality* fanfics?
Speaking of fanfics – fanfic actually still seems to be in fashion on tumblr. However, it doesn’t often feature in my round-ups because I am extremely picky when it comes to fanfic. I don’t really have a problem with RPF at all, and reader-insert fics are usually very gratifying to read *ahem*, but lately I have found that I am too old for the new fanfics that are written in that vein. They just don’t really appeal to me in tone, in vocabulary, even in subject matter. But that is just me, old and prude… However, I do want to encourage everyone to go on tumblr and search for fanfics there themselves. Fizzyxcustard and amethystrosestarr are a good start.
And now ad res.
- Is it unfair to post old photos of celebrities? Ra-of-light asks a question. Discuss
- Since *some people* 😉 were insistent the community re-watch should’ve been Guy, I give you this oldie-but-goldie by riepu10. A repost, so genuinely from this year!!!
- LOL – I think I am going to have to make this my avatar. Meme by noodlegirl5
- After a while, here is a new instalment from the What a Guy wants series by nfcomics
- Whoa – I absolutely love this piece of fan art of Richard as Wolverine by 77tiger77
- I laughed out loud when I read this question posed to and answered by fallnangelcreations. And my answer would be: No, may be aware of it but completely believes it’s not due to him but “a beloved character from a book. I think it was on a curriculum somewhere.” DUH!!!!
- Ra-of-light has noticed that there is a lot of water in Richard’s oeuvre…
- Riepu10 has also posted a few New Year’s edits. Here’s one
- And here is another
- On the subject of my community re-watch – check paintedshards’ tumblr! There are several gif sets of Richard scenes in Hannibal there
- Deepestfirefun has a late Christmas pressie for those of you who are not on Audible… hint hint
- Totally loved this post by rcrispina – do the colours match yours?
- In case anyone needs a good night story for their little one, deepestfirefun is at your service
- I have no idea where this thought comes from, but yeah, I somewhat agree with sexycraisinthanos
- Sorry, this What a Guy wants is too late for Christmas, but it’s great fun! By nfcomics
- On board with that, jediwizardelf
- And finishing today on an important message by Mr Armitage, capped by it-comes-in-venti
The first round-up of the year is done. Part of the ever-recurring resolution I make every year: I want to post the round-up every week. Well, I probably won’t make it this year, either… but I’ll post as often as I can.
In the mean time – enjoy and happy new year to you, once again!
