Richard Armitage Legenda 88: 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.]

Hey everybody — love all the comments I got this week and am about to go catch up. Meanwhile — if you like these blogs or tumblrs, please leave a like or comment! Thanks!

That’s a relief

Haven’t gotten enough Lego Thorin and air guitar?

Here’s another take on how Lego Mini-Thorin could play air guitar, based on an earlier post by the same author, which I forgot to refer to in my post on this topic this week. Apologies to The Arkenstone; I just spaced it.

I’m not a cat fan but I couldn’t resist this

Note the announcement at left of King Richard Armitage week in August. We’d love to include some more bloggers!

Richard Armitage-related fanfic: Mature themes, sexy, slash, RPF, etc.

  • Charlotte Hawkins has published the third novel in her Gisborne series originally inspired by Richard Armitage’s portrayal of Sir Guy, The Baron’s Lady (buy on amazon). Xenia has read it and reviewed it here. I have not read it yet, but I reviewed the two earlier titles in the series here and here. Like Charlotte Hawkins on FB here.
  • At wattpad: Carly Q’s “Iron and Oak” goes to ch. 8. (Answer to Armitage’s question about a lost love for Thorin.) I really liked this (sexy, romantic) chapter.
  • At DF: Obscura’s “Recovery” goes to ch. 12. (John Porter + OFC.)
  • Enjoying The Arkenstone’s humorous Thorin / Lady Oakenshield stories? Here’s another installment: “Music to My Ears.” And the story of the whole thing from the perspective of the Arkenstone itself.
  • At wattpad: Trudy’s “In Consequence” goes to ch. 20, almost the end. Sob! (North & South sequel.)


Because it still makes me happy

OT, collateral attractions, and other things I think about

  1. Love you, Serv! Thanks for the links and the other interesting stuff!


  2. […] week, I look forward to Servetus’ Legenda to find out what I’ve missed in Armitage-world – especially these days when my nose is […]


  3. As you usual, thanks for the link love!


  4. I love it when you post everything I’ve missed! I don’t even know how you find this stuff! Thank you for kindly mentioning my story. I wish they could just stay in the cave…the end. Sigh. Sometimes I just hate how much I love the original story.


  5. Wow- was this all in one week? I wish I could take my phone to the beach and spend a few languishing hours catching up on this. Alas, I’ll have to settle for the laptop and the living room to OD on fanfics.
    Legenda is such a gift. Thanks.


    • Minus all the stuff that I just reblogged and so didn’t repeat here. An active week when you consider that basically nothing happened. ….


  6. Great stuff as usual, Serv.
    As an add on to the report about North and South being carved up to fit cable channel requirements, I can report that the BBC is not above doing a bit of chopping up of their own. I was pleased to see N&S pop up on my BBC iPlayer this week, so I decided to watch it on my ipad. Well, just little bits cut here and there; certainly nothing like Arkenstone reported, but still, when I checked I found they’d taken 8 minutes off each ep. Why would you do that on a platform you have complete control over? Needless to say I am awaiting email response to my complaint.

    On another topic entirely- is there some sort of roster going round the fandom to put dibs on those Thursday afternoon teas?


    • I wonder whether they’re Thorin Thursdays or still Thornton Thursdays? 🙂

      I saw a Dutch version of it on yt once, and they cut “Look back at me!” I was horrified.


  7. Thanks for putting this list together Love it! The Eagles gif set is breathtaking! And I can’t wait to read Trudy’s new chapter of “In Consequence”!


  8. Thanks for the links to my stuff and to a plentiful week…the muse is working and all over 🙂

    This whole tumblr thing is really irritating…what is the point of this, and where does it end? It really begs for someone to “invent” the newest version…do to tumblr what Facebook did it MySpace I guess.


    • I’ll confess I find it enraging because I feel like the emergence of the tumblr Armitage fandom was really good for us — it was sort of understood that tumblr was “wild” and edgy and libertarian, and if you went over there, you shouldn’t complain if you didn’t like what you found. I don’t know, maybe it’s just the case that when a medium becomes popular enough to go mainstream, it stops being able to have all those qualities. But I don’t see the problem with a neighborhood on the web that is riskier than elsewhere. And I love those sexy blogs.


      • I’m so tired of the same old rationale that someone..minors I suppose , needs to be protected from whatever…1. That horse is already out of the barn and 2. Why is it not the responsibility of the individual (or the individual’s parents to make these choices). I’m just feeling a bit big brothered I guess.


        • when you consider how many tumblr users are teenagers — one reason I don’t spend as much time there is that I’m actually a bit concerned, based on students’ remarks to me, that I might run into some of my students there — and many of them are the ones creating the “questionable” content …


  9. I don’t know, I’m not a huge tumblr, I just resent this because it stinks of censorship to me and once it starts, where does it end. I personally feel like it is next to impossible to shelter kids from the Internet…I’m fairly sure my oldest, and maybe the youngest can defeat most safeties I put in place, but I’m trying to teach them to make good choices…probably like anyone, at any point in time has done in analogous situations (peep shows, porn stashes, etc). Questionable content seems to be the natural habitat of teens of all eras.


  10. *g* that hair got me. swirly curly >^_^<. and tumblr almost lost me. grrr.


  11. Thank you very much for the recommendation of my post, Servetus :*


  12. I did not realize John Porter had a rib tat… and I’m not sure how I feel about the fact that I didn’t know. I feel like I should have noticed, since I have noticed the one on his arm. but on the other hand, this does back up the fact that I really do watch it for the storyline! *laughs*


  13. I got a Google alert for RA with a link to this post!! 😀
