When I wrote this post yesterday (I always compile the weekly round-up on a Friday night – so that you have it ready for 8 am on Saturday morning.
Yes, that’s how good I am to you.), I was still in giddiness mode. Today is the 22nd, and I am now officially counting down to the 25th when A Nearly Normal Family, read by Armitage et al. will be released on Audible. Yes, I have a gif for that.
This week’s round-up:
- Big smiles are a favourite theme of mine at the moment. Here is a very smily fan art by iangatiss
- Fantastic – Ilariaeugealtomasini has been taking pictures of the new dream team. Hilarious!
- Just pinning this gif set by amatesura here for later reference – and because it said “scrapbooking”
- Birdsdancebelowme apparently went through a Richard Armitage phase in 2010. Chibi Guy!
- Riepu10 gifs one of the lesser known characters – Percy. RA’s gesturing still needs a bit of fine-tuning
- Fizzyxcustard finds a piece of Thorin fan art
- Rather than linking to these pictures, posted by fizzyxcustard, let me do something else and show you a screenshot. Much better effect, I think!
Damn, guys, I am sorry, but there isn’t anything else. Are we in silly season already? Actually, people are probably beginning to go on summer holidays. I know that nokisuu, for instance, is on holiday in Hawaii. What are your holiday plans, everybody? Going to far-flung places? I am going to Munich for a weekend next week, but that’s basically all. (I am not counting my time at home with my mother as holidays. It’ll be hard work!)
I was going to leave you a Guy of Gisborne fan video to make up for the lack of links, but my favourite fan video seems to have vanished from YouTube. I think it was called “Surrender” and was made by a fan called Olery St, featuring Josh Groban’s “My Confession”.
I know this pretty well because this was one of the videos that dragged me into the hell pit of fandom in those early days. And even though I really am not a fan of Josh Groban at all, I ended up buying “My Confession” as a single download because I *needed* that song on my iPod (yep, that dates it) for my walk to college every evening. In its place, there is a video called “Guy of Gisborne’s Confession” with the same music, but I am 100% sure that that is a different video although it seems to reuse a good few scenes from Olery’s original. Ah well.
Ok, so instead I am going to embed myself in this post again. Watch this and you’ll see my video editing skills getting better and better. Guylty can now not only do titles and transitions, but also stills and outros 😂. Skip this shit if you are not interested in junk journals! I am having fun with it but I am sure a lot of people think it’s stupid. That’s fine!
Have a lovely weekend, all!
