Legenda 68: 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.]

Richard Armitage for Richard III

One of last week’s Postsecrets




  • Everyone is reading Broken (Lucas North / OC / possibly R); I’m hearing how great it is and I haven’t even read one chapter. Some day. But everyone says, don’t miss it. I love MorrighansMuse’s other stuff.
  • At Raucous, “Not What They Expected,” ch. 5. RPF, Armitage + OC. Gets steamy as the parties to the affair take it to the hot tub.
  • This is really strange, but think Hobbit cast + Muppet babies. RPF Armitage, McTavish, no slash, no sex. “Baby Steps.” Amazingly sweet. Though I don’t think McTavish is young enough to have had the shoes with the flashing lights.
  • And I probably spent most of my fanfic time this week reading RPF slash fics at Archive of Our Own. Here’s the Richard Armitage tag there. Take the warning on these fics seriously. I’m trying to figure out how to write about these.
  • Also rereading ch. 17 of “In Consequence.” I’ve needed a lot of euphoria this week and this chapter provided it.

OT, collateral attractions, and things I think about

  1. Thanks for the link! Some lovely stuff on here this week…thanks for making it so easy for the rest of us! 🙂


  2. If anyone is interested, I posted the first chapter of a multi chapter sequel to the holiday John Porter fic from winter solstice time on DF….I’m not sure how to link there though…. it’s posted in “other fic” title is RECOVERY. TKS 🙂


  3. I like the Tumblr one on the fantasy about meeting Richard at work. That would work for me I can stay very calm and not be shy there. I know my job and do it well. But which one of my students would be bringing him to lunch or is he a guest speaker to are students who stays for lunch? He better be going to my sons school or they will be jealous, and we can’t have that. He could talk to the students about reading.


    • He could read them a chapter from TH.


      • That would work out great, since 5th grade read The Hobbit late last year. After TH came out they got to go see the movie. They came back and right to lunch, they where talking about the movie and from what I could tell really liked it.


  4. Thanks for the links! I must say that I am a little disturbed by the one with Ed Sullivan and the mouse. Creeps me out to think about Mr. Armitage as a shy mouse. But he does do that head dipping thing. Must go look again at the John Porter gifs to get the image out of my mind….


  5. Love Ivanna’s RIII pic – it’s stirring.
    I’m betting, too, that “Broken” is really good, although Lucas fics aren’t usually my thing.
    Thanks for this great weekly round-up.
    Glad Thornton can give you a needed lift to your week. 😉


  6. Thank you for including Broken in your Fanfic list. What a lovely surprise to be included among all the wonderful people on here!


  7. Great stuff, as usual, Servetus. Just back from spreading a bit of love to some of the blogs. Oh, and pssssst – but I have it on good authority that that confession about meeting RA at work actually came from a photographer… Pity she’s not based in London, though… 😉


  8. Thanks for all the links 🙂 So many great stuff here. Oh, fanart made ​​by Ivanna is delightful.


  9. Thanks for sharing my posts here 🙂
    I love how organized your legenda posts have become, it’s really helpful.
    I felt especially connected with that confession on Tumblr about meeting Richard in a non-fan situation. I could have sent it !
