Legenda 63: 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.]

Save Bilbo from destruction


Help Bilbo avoid this dreadful fate by commenting on the blogs of people whose work you especially liked this week! Thanks!

FanstRAvaganza 4!

fanstra4-come-fanstraHere’s the official announcement!

If you haven’t signed up to indicate your interest in participating, it’s time to let us know — please do so here!

You can join in with as few as ONE post. And you don’t need to be an Armitage blogger specifically to participate — any platform you have will do.

This week in classic FanstRAvaganza, I’m going back to probably my favorite Armitagemania-related blog post OF ALL TIME. Yes, it’s that good. Technically speaking, it wasn’t a FanstRAvaganza post, but it was written by Ragtag, one of the F1 bloggers. It begins: “I wrote a sane review of North & South a few weeks back, and now it’s time for the ugly truth …

I guess I have to get myself one of these.

  1. Thanks for all the links to my stuff! And I had no idea that I’d written something using amphibrachs. I’d never even heard of them. It was quite by accident I assure you! I just find my first two lines, work out where the rhyme will be and go with it. I’ve been thinking in rhyming couplets all day! 🙂

    Love the idea of the love letters thing…and loved Losing My Religion in a major key…interesting that I could sing along without reverting to the minor.


    • well, there you are. It’s the major rhythm in a limerick (da DA da, da DA da).

      I wonder sometimes about where to put my excess love or if it could be put somewhere where it wouldn’t be dangerous or shaming. This seems like a good solution.

      And you have a better ear than me. (There’s another vid on that same channel of “Riders in the Sky” or something that is equally neat). But I loved the idea of singing the song in a joyful tone …


  2. Oh thanks for sharing Ragtag’s hilarious post, I’d never seen it before!
    I’m three years in and counting, and I’m still pretty much still running on the force of Thornton alone!
    I just want to know how far I’ve moved up on the pyramid scheme ranking….;)


    • I think that you are well up the pyramid, Trudy, having written a novel about N&S and selling it to people … 🙂 Just sayin’. You’re part of the industry now!


      • The thought of the fandom being likened to a frenzied pyramid scheme was priceless. Lol! But I’d much rather think of what we all have in common than try to delineate ranks. (Except for Annette – she’s the top because Richard delivers his messages to her!)
        Some of us reach more than others with our contributions, but in the end we’re all just fabulously impressed with RA and his work.


        • But you have to recruit new people, that’s part of the pyramid scheme thing. Why do you think I do these Legenda posts? 🙂 It’s to SUCK PEOPLE IN.


          • Oh, I’m all about the recruiting! It’s a current mission of mine to spread the Thornton(RIchard) gospel. I’m constantly trying to shepherd people to the light, welcome people, and make connections. My Holy Grail is to get N&S to air in the US on Masterpiece. Maybe if the whole fandom rallies for a worldwide anniversary airing in 2014, it will happen. (Or maybe Thorin and his awesomeness will do all the work for us.) I just can’t stand by and let people believe that P&P is the pinnacle of all period dramas/romance novels! 🙂


            • That was *you*. OK, I was associating it with someone else. I blogged about it back in the day (like two years ago) but don’t hesitate to let me know if /when there are developments.


  3. I am the same size as the lifesized Thorin, THE Dwarf. I came home, opened my closet, let out a scream to find Thorin in my closet.


  4. I loved “Save Bilbo from destruction,” the figure and message! : 0)
    and one thing I liked this week!
