Richard Armitage Legenda 80: Stuff worth reading

Legenda offers a brief, non-inclusive index of stuff about Richard Armitage that 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.]

Happy birthday, Ian McKellen!


Richard Armitage Archive

This was a really active week in Armitageworld. A long list, but I’m convinced every one is worth your time to click, read, look, comment.

Richard III news

Richard Armitage-related fanfic

  • At A03: “Little Box,” by Blue Peony. Hobbit / AU. Dysfunctional Durin family relationships. Rated G.

Richard Armitage-related mature, sexy, slash, and / or RPF fanfic

It was a fanfic kind of week. Make sure you read all warnings / labels, etc. before proceeding.

  • At wattpad: “Love is a Wound” goes to ch. 15 and 16.
  • At MorrighansMuse: Emmanuelle is trapped in an elevator with Richard Armitage.
  • At A03: “Good Morning,” by bombur_bastic. Armitage + female reader insert. PWP. Sexy!
  • At A03: “Overruled,” by Forever Distracted. Slash (Armitage + Pace) — and unbelievably sweet. Very little sex. Sweetness factor esp high ch. 3 and 5. OMG ch. 3 and ch. 5.
  • At A03: “So you like writing rpf. About us,” by Dream Seeker. An RPF about characters in a different RPF. This kind of stuff is why I love fanfic.
  • At A03: “Pain-Bearer,” by lilithiumwords. (Thorin / Bilbo / Hobbit AU). Make sure you read all the warnings — lots of unpleasantness and mature themes in this one, but it delivers unbelievably on the hurt/comfort axis, which is one of my favorite fanfic tropes.


OT, collateral attractions, and stuff I think about

  1. Thanks for the link! 😀


  2. Thank you so much for the mention, oh purveryor of Richard awesomeness! (I am indeed an Armitage fan, but not really new. Have been obsessed for a number of years now)


  3. Hi Servetus,
    Thanks for the great work in compiling all these links.
    I went to the RA fanlore page, and now I’m curious- who compiles this info? I did a comparison with several other actors, all well known, and their pages were nothing like as detailed as RA’s. I wonder who chooses the quotes to represent the overall feeling of the fandom, as I imagine this could be quite contentious. Were you asked if your quotes could be used?


    • I was not asked, but it’s fine.

      This is a wiki, so it’s crowdsourced information. There should be tabs toward the top of the page that you can click (history or discussion or something like that) that indicated who has constructed, added to, changed the page. I assume that it will a fan with a handle.


  4. Thank you so much for these links.


  5. Thanks for linking to me (I think you’ve doubled up on the neutrality piece…all that Thucydides excitement 🙂 ). I had some pretty ambivalent thoughts on the Amazon fan fic news…I’ll be interested to see how it develops.


    • You know how I am about Thucydides … 🙂

      I just don’t see how things like slash will ever be licensable. That means you’ll have some really good canon stories that might not have been written otherwise, which i suppose is not so bad. Like, for example, “The Gruinard Project,” potentially, anyway. But slash? I don’t see it happening. Which is fine, on some level, except if they decide the fact that they’re licensing ff authors means that they’re going to crack down on authors who don’t get licenses. It also endangers the whole realm of juvenile and teen writers who get started writing via fanfic — at least potentially.
