It’s February!!! *phew* We’ve left the darkest month behind and are heading towards the light. Or that’s how I see it. Have you noticed how it’s a little brighter every afternoon? I’ve even had a couple of days with “lie-ins” until 8am, and it is not dark at that time anymore ☀️.
Next port of call is Valentine’s Day. Not that I am really that huge a fan of said “occasion”, but anything to cheer me up right now… I’ve been thinking of love-bombing some unsuspecting people… There are a few who I *know* are having a hard time right now, so they are top of my list. If there’s any interest, we could easily do a little Valentine’s card swap – although it is almost a little bit late for it, only 9 days to go, and judging by current mail delivery times… In the past we’ve also had a couple of blog-based Valentine’s events, with virtual gifts, i.e. edits, letters, poems etc. created by the participants and published on Valentine’s Day.
But first of all it’s round-up day ☺️
- Starting off with a thoughtful Dr Astrov from a photo set by mezzmerizedbyrichard. Can you believe it is now 2 years since UV was playing in London?
- In stark contrast – a smiling (!!!!) Thorin, courtesy of a thewarriorandtheking
- For selfish reasons, here is a picture posted by richardarmitagefanpage of Richard at RDC5 in London… ahhh, exactly 3 years ago now
- As you know, I am now fully on board with Damaged Goods, the fanfic by middleearthpixie. Here is the link to ch. 30, but on AO3 it has already gone to the next chapter… And that is some *very* valuable information for you. Just sayin’…
- Bundibird says it as it is…
- In case you haven’t seen it on Twitter yet, aninomori is experimenting with a new style for her drawings. Her portrait of Richard is spot on, as always. Amazing talent!
- Robertdowneyhiddlesbatch has an idea for an Adam Price fan fic. Hm, now that my fan fic flame has been fanned again, I might get behind that one…
- Not read by me yet, but here is a Guy fan fic called Ask me in the morning by fizzyxcustard. It is part 4 in a series of prompts
- Here’s a What a Guy Wants quip that sounds very much like Guy. Posted by nfcomics
- Umph. I’d rather unsee this Azog-Thorin height comparison by outcastsnmagic
- Mysandwichranaway draws Thorin in modern formal wear. And a little surprise 😂
- Haly-reads has embarked on a NS fan fic and links to the work on AO3. I have only glanced at the intro, but this is set after Thornton falsely believes that Margaret is in love with another man
Your weekend should be sorted if you delve into the fan fic in here…
Circling back to the beginning of this post, thanks to February, my mood is getting so much better. We still, btw, have not heard back from the hospital re. Mr Guylty’s participation in the transplant programme. But Little Miss Guylty has booked her flight to Germany for her semester abroad, and I have booked my flight to visit her for her birthday. Now I have something to really look forward to, returning to Germany at the end of March to see my mum, to visit friends and to celebrate my daughter’s birthday in Munich. I think this year is going to be a good one. At least that is what I wish for you and me and everyone.
Have a good weekend, all!
