Legenda 44: 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.]

This week comes a little early — again — because the High Holidays are starting on Sunday evening and I wanted my mailbox cleaned out first. I do want to warn you that while I may peek in occasionally, I will most likely not be posting from Sunday evening until Tuesday evening. But who knows. My plans have changed before. I have a lot to think about this year, though.


I’m featuring this because it makes me so happy: Nat has a new blog! Everyone run over there and say “hi!”

(This makes me happy because I also wonder what happens when you run out of things to say about “just” Richard Armitage). So she’s keeping it up with her inimitable, light-hearted blend of commentary and ogling and art.

AND — just as importantly, her old blog is going to remain open, and it reports that Stick Figure Richard is also on the set of Black Sky. What a relief. I hadn’t heard from him in a while and was worried.

Richard III:

The big thing this week was the excavation of the Greyrfriars’ Car Park and its results regarding Richard III. I’m going to do a separate Richard III update in a while because I haven’t got time at the moment to read all the stuff, but here’s a summary and a comment at the King Richard Armitage fan initiative. Also:

The Sunne in Splendour group read plans are now available at #ArmitageWatch — the begin date has moved to September 30th. I will be accompanying it here in some way, as well, though I am not sure I’ll be tweeting along. I’ll be trying to come up with a fun quiz question each week, and if the reading speaks to me I’ll weigh in. In case you’re still hesitant, Agzy is doing some background for non-specialists and to encourage non-native readers to participate; here, for instance, on The War of the Roses.



  • Khandy’s “Absolution” (SB / John Porter / OC) goes to chapter 13.
  • La Loba’s dreams rewrite her last Guy of Gisborne fairytale.
  • GB’s “One Last Try” (RH / Guy + Marian) goes to chapter 5. Intense angst and suffering.
  • On the question of what is permissible in fanfic — here’s a fascinating story, entitled “Hiddle Me This.” It features what is characterized as an out-of-character Tom Hiddleston. It also has sex, so take the warnings very seriously before reading.
  • RPF, explicit: “Clean my pipes.” Armitage as plumber!
  • Standring plus RPF, explicit, “Open Your Heart to Love,” adds four chapters (12-15) — see here and page down.

OT, collateral attractions, and stuff I think about:

  1. Thanks for the round-up and as usual, for the shout-out. Kind of astonished I have posted that much–although mine are definitely more art heavy and less of the wonderful analysis you write. 😀 Getting kind of excited about the whole RIII dig. Feel the need to dig out The Daughter of Time and re-read it (planning to be in the group read for Sunne).


  2. Thanks for the lovely and handy list of everyone’s activities.

    Giggles on your viewing my essay as a “stringent analysis” of possible RA Gary character surnames. And thanks for the shout out.

    I almost bought Sunne for my Kindle for PC, but Hobbit annuals and related books ate into my available balance. Ha! But with the pushed back read start date of Sept. 30, that will give me time to buy it. Did the number of chapters per week ever get settled on? I’m behind in my notification reading. Ha!

    And will Sunne have a “regular” chat room like we do for AW Chat? I don’t think that I want to contribute to congesting Twitter traffic with a group read or movie watch chat fest. Let alone, it’s nice to have a private room to chat in. I’m just saying. Ha!


    • I’m not the organizer, so I don’t know how the chat is planned to go. The issue with a chatroom is that if it occurs in real time that makes international discussion hard.


  3. Thnaks as always for legenda, which points me to sites I might have missed.

    Thanks also for the fitz ref. Not one of my better guest efforts. Was running out of ideas. Leicester events have re-energised…


    • As always, it was cogent and very well written. It’s hard to write a column — thinking of stuff to say can get difficult. (Don’t ask me how I know.)


  4. Thanks for list.
    I hope to have Lucas North as official model for Belstaff. : 0)


  5. It seems I’m a little crazy about Richard Armitage hand, isn’t it? 😉
    Thank you for all links. 🙂


  6. Thanks for the shout-out, Serv! 🙂
