Legenda 38: Stuff worth reading

[Legenda offers a brief, non-inclusive index of stuff I noticed and enjoyed since the last episode. It doesn’t usually include materials presented on the major fansites, which I love dearly, but which are linked in the sidebar. Because I always forget or just miss stuff, please add additional pieces of interest via link in the comments.]

August is Armitage Birthday Month!

***

I haven’t decided entirely what I’m doing here, but I know that one thing I will be participating in is King Richard Armitage Week 2012!

This is going to be a fun week, beginning on Armitage Day, with a scavenger hunt / quiz, interviews, graphics, articles, and a charity challenge. Planned participating bloggers / blogs so far include fitzg, Fly High!, CDoart: Richard Armitage & History & Spooks, Something About Love, and of course, me + richard armitage. A few others are still deliberating about possible contributions.

If you would like to blog about Richard III during the week following August 22nd and display the King Richard Armitage Week banner on your site, please let me know so we can include your contribution in the festivities, linked at the project home page!

Watch Armitage in warm society:

fanfic:

  • TrudysTattle’s “In Consequence” (N&S) goes to chapter 15 and things get deliciously out of hand. Trudy, you are not allowed to go on vacation!!! I need them to get married already!!!! Please!!!!!
  • rbb recommends Juliecoop’s fanfics, here. Logon: JaneAusten Password: Love2Read. I admit that I haven’t read these yet but wanted to make sure the link was more visible than it was in the comments on the last Legenda. ETA: rbb recommends “Love Lessons” and “How to Save a Life.”

OT, collateral attractions, and stuff I think about:

  1. Lol! I’m bringing old fashioned pen and paper. Actually, I’ve found communing with nature (I’m going camping by a mountain lake) to be a boon to my daydreaming creativity. I have fond memories of the specific scenes I crafted in my mind at camp the previous two years.
    Juliecoop is a very talented writer. I read one of her N&S fics (there are two). I’m just not a terrific fan of the type of conflict and angst she injected into the story. But I’m very picky. Check her stories out, you may love them. I adored the first part.

    • mmmm. John and Margaret by a mountain stream … but you *have* to get them married. It is the mid-nineteenth century, after all, and they’re from the upper reaches of society 🙂

  2. Wow, Servetus, I’m in your list again… Thank you so very much for linking to my blog and for all the other recommendations!

    Trudy’s on holiday? Noooooo! I’m hooked on that story, can’t wait for more! I must check out the other fanfics to tide me over until the next chapter of In Consequence…

    • I’m so short on time lately that I don’t see much fanfic other than what’s delivered to me, so I really always hope people will leave links in the comments.

    Your lists are full of rich information and I would again have overlooked such wonderful articles without this one. Thank you, Servetus !!!

  5. Thanks for the mention, Servetus 🙂 I’ve completed another 800 stitches since I posted, and Stitchin’ Richard now has *two* eyes and most of his nose!

  6. Dear Servetus, i have not quite expected you to pass along my recommendation for JulieCoop fanfic without you vetting it first 🙂 But since you did – could you please qualify that recommendation? I would suggest trying Love Lessons , and maybe How to save a Life. The N&S pieces i do not like much though. To me, all the problems that I had with her P&P pieces, but was able to disregard, got amplified in N&S.
