Legenda 53: 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.]

  • Please don’t just hit these blogs, but leave comments there as well!
  • This was a personally overwhelming week for me — so I am sure I’ve missed or forgotten something. Looking at this bumper crop of links — it was also a very overwhelming week for Armitage readers! I reblogged a lot of the Hobbit news this week — so that stuff is not linked below; please page down to find it all. Please help out with links, suggestions.

Reader mail:

Someone — who asks not to be identified because her inner perfectionist is offended by the quality of the snap — just sent me this picture:

Chicago, November 17, 2012.

In case you didn’t know, there are an Armitage Avenue and an Armitage CTA stop in Chicago, and in case you didn’t know, I spend a lot of my writing time in the stores of a particular Seattle coffee chain in a different city. I’ve never been in this store but now I am sorely tempted to move to Chicago and open up shop there.

Thanks, o perfectionist reader, for sending this photo. I will treasure it.

Help out a fellow blogger!

Obviously this is a repeat of a request I made earlier this week, but you can click once per day, so even if you already did it, please do it again:

Click for “Melanie Foust” to help Melanie of Melanie’s Musings win a $10,000 scholarship.

She’s moved up from 0% to 2% so it’s obviously helping. Ask your friends and family as well.

Struck me as funny:

Richard Armitage really likes food, but apparently Thorin does not.



  • Trudy, I miss you and I’ve started rereading parts of “A Heart for Milton” obsessively.
  • Khandy’s “Absolution” goes to ch. 19 (Strike Back / JP + OC / explicit at times). If you thought Khandy was going to make the end of this story easy to bear, you were really wrong!
  • GB’s “One Last Try” goes to ch. 14 (Robin Hood / Guy + Marian / not explicit in this chapter). A chapter with everything — a goofy plot, some sadness, and plenty of tension.
  • Grati’s “Sir Guy’s Dilemma” (Robin Hood / Guy + OC / see disclaimers there) has a baptism on the cards this week.


OT, collateral attractions, and stuff I think about:

  1. Hope this week is better. Let me know if I can do anything on this end. Have you seen Frozen? I thought of you when I watched it as there is a spectacular thumb shot 🙂


  2. Obsessively? Lol! ‘A Heart for Milton’ is a hard act to follow. That’s part of my problem.
    I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now, though, concerning the chapter I’m working on. Mind you, it’s still a long tunnel and I won’t be posting anytime soon. The kids have off all next week, and fervently hoping to dive into my work while I can. Thanks for the mention, I love the encouraging push it gives me.


    • Yes, it truly is a hard act to follow. But I believe in you. Also, I’m getting desperate! You have totally taught me what it must have been like in the 19th c to be hanging on the next installment of Little Dorrit or whatever.

      Hope you have a good week off with your kids.


  3. Wow Serv! This is quite a list! You hang in there and try to get some rest over Thanksgiving if you can. At this stage in my life, low key holidays are to be treasured. ha!


  4. LOL servetus I’m the Queen of mean. The final chapter is with my beta reader so hopefully ot long to wait.to find out his fate. Thanks as ever for following the story.


    • You are the Queen of Mean, especially because I can’t imagine they ever get to be intimate again. I just want him to survive and be happy.
