So, in last weekend’s round-up, I linked to a tumblr post by fizzyxcustard.
So, favourite RA in chaRActer pictures. And in *my* case there will be Thorin, too. But I am slightly changing the rules in order to limit the whole thing: When I say “pictures” I really mean “photos” and NOT screencaps! Yes, that will make it slightly more difficult because gems such as smitten and lovingly-gazing Thornton is only available as screen capture… 😭. The upside is, that “photos” means the quality of these stills is much better. Too much waffle, Guylty, let’s go! In no particular order but the one that comes to my head and therefore probably also means how much I love these characters…
Jesus, the man has nose. And profile. And light brown highlights. And sutbble and and and *thud* – I have uploaded this in full glory. Click and be slayed!
Imposing, confident, master of the realm. Mr Thornton in his habitat. Let me just sit here at your feet and admire you…
Another supermegalarge image. Click and you can count every individual pore. I love this image of Lucas North because he looks delicate, vulnerable, yet determined in this image. Plus: eyelash porn. Need I say more?
Don’t ask me why, but I have always thought there is something suggestive in this promo shot of Thorin. No fight necessary, Oakenshield. Take me, I am yours.
Determination. And a wet shirt. Need I say more? Rescue me, Porter!
Alec Track. Demi-god in white. Undecided whether it is the forearm fuzz or the cowslick that gets me when I look at this.
Ok, totally ignoring that abominable brown leather jacket, but can anyone resist that wide smile? Harry shows how gorgeous RA could be as a romantic lead.
Total 1950s rebel! Ricky Deeming – dangerous but cool. And very nice bokeh here, too. Not a screencap but a film still btw, so it counts.
Again, an amazing mixture of scary and vulnerable – an example of Richard’s nuanced portraiture. Click to see a massive version of this image – the close-up reveals the fantastic work of the Hannibal make-up department!
Ok, yes, because of the exposed skin. But also because of the honesty, the upstanding sheer will of determination, and the vulnerability of nudity. John Proctor.
Lastly – because all good things come to an end and I am not going to go through all the “smaller” chaRActers – Richard’s latest opus, Daniel Miller.
An unusual choice, not least because this scene was cut from BS1. But colour. And sweaty Dan. Because… *um*… there is something very hot about a sweaty, dirty man.
After all this, I am now going to take a shower. 🚿 I feel rather flushed myself…
