Armitage Weekly Round-up 2019/11

Delayed and still in a hurry today. Mother dear is arriving in two hour’s time, I have a birthday party to attend this evening, and my own little daughter has a significant birthday herself tomorrow… Where did the time go. And where is time flying today? Without much further ado:

  1. Not quite sure who Guy is referring to – the Sheriff? – but it is funny nonetheless. What a Guy wants by nfcomics
  2. A comment on looks and talent by bilboxthorinus
  3. Randomweird gets it right. *swoon*
  4. Ausschweifendemotte says goodbye to Daniel Miller with a photo set. Yep, even if BS was eponymous… but Daniel really was worth looking at!
  5. Maybe she hasn’t used the best possible image for DM, but when looking at that particular comparison, I have to say Lucas North all the way. Posted by crazytxgradstudent
  6. Just a reminder that there are weird people around who pretend they are celebrities. Short post by fizzyxcustard
  7. Angelpretend has put together a compilation of Thorin fan art. There are some amazing pictures and sketches in there, amazing! Credit to all the creators, I guess!
  8. Posting this link to tallian’s picture because we all need a little material for our Mary Sue fantasies sometimes…
  9. I couldn’t have said it better than aghostlydragon. Spot on!
  10. And what a Guy wants with the usual cheeky-naughty approach – by nfcomics
  11. Another side-by-side comparison of Lucas North and Daniel Miller. Who do you choose? Posted by angelpretend
  12. Daniel Miller, intense. I just wish someone had paired him in this gif set with someone other than Hector… Posted by ghisborne
  13. Cool – in case you thought Mina Tander’s latest trio portrait of herself flanked by RA and La Forbes (as taken the piss off by me the other day), greatkingunderthemountain has actually put all three iterations of that photo in one post. Fantastic. Those pictures work so much better as a series, don’t you think?
  14. Have we all seen the new The Lodge poster that turned up at CinemaCon in Las Vegas? There’s neither trailer nor release date available yet, though. Posted by deepestfirefun
  15. I haven’t read any of these fan fics, but ra-of-light apparently also writes… Here is her master list. No guarantees on quality 😉 (a quick look reveals that she writes reader-insert/2nd pers singular, which is not to everyone’s taste. Not sure whether they are all like that.) Apparentely also NSFW – you have been warned!
  16. I have to say I really love moodyhedgie’s fan art. Here is another beautiful example, this time focussing on Thorin’s hairstyles

A nice number of stuff, right?

I suspect I won’t be posting tomorrow. Between Irish breakfast, daughter’s birthday and entertaining mum I probably won’t find a good excuse to go online…

Have a nice weekend, then!

Guylty ❤️

PS: In case you are all reading here – a big shout-out to KellyDS, LoLo and Kathy Jones. I received your various e-mails and other missives, and I will answer properly. At this stage, though – 1,000 thanks for what you sent me and for being in touch. Big hugs to all of you. I promise to reply properly soon!

  1. Enjoy your time with your mom.

    I assume the roundup is stellar as usual, but tumblr is having ‘a day’ and I’ve clicked on 127 pictures with bikes in them, so I guess it just isn’t meant to be. 😘

      • No, I meant the”prove you’re not a robot” 🤖 page where you have to click all the pictures that show bikes or busses or crosswalks. I suppose you have never seen that as you have a login. Tumblr has this weird authentication feature and some days I simply can’t get past. 🤷🏻‍♀️


        • Oh, no, I do know that robot thing. And I never get past that, either. I can only access tumblr when I am on Safari. Chrome won’t do, no matter how often I click all the bikes and write in my password… Never mind. Tomorrow is another day.

  2. Thanks for sparing the time for us when you’re expecting your mum, you have a party to attend and a birthday to arrange for your daughter as well. Happy Birthday to her, and have a great time all together. 💕🎂

    On the subject of full Irishes, are you for or against baked beans on the plate? My mouth’s watering at the thought, either way.


    • Mum’s arrived – and all well.
      Full Irish – personally I am not really into baked beans that much. For me they are never really integral to an Irish breakfast. I’d associate it more with an English breakfast. But I could be wrong!!!


  3. Thanks for the great round-up Guylty and hope you are having/had a fab weekend. 1.pic, what a guy wants chooses such great pics. The luminosity on Guy’s face! He looks so beautiful, cherubic even – not normally a quality associated with Guy.
    4. In the pic with the eye graffiti,I’d never noticed before that DM is wearing a thick woolly cardigan under his great coat. 5. It has puzzled me for years why RA as DM series 1 face is so different from LN (when they had a similar look). He doesn’t look that much older, LN has the same lines etc, Perhaps it’s the eyebrows. I’ll take them both ( not just the eyebrows but DM and LN – greedy me)


    • Done – she went for her first ever pint of Guinness into the local pub with her father, brother, three uncles and a cousin-once-removed. Truly grown-up now.


Let me know what you think!
