Richard Armitage Legenda 91: 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.]

Armitage Day activities materializing

For an explanation of the term “Armitage Day,” look here.

Consider, before you do anything else, a small donation left in honor of Richard Armitage’s birthday at his JustGiving pages! Need some encouragement from me? Well, I’ve been the beneficiary of charity. And here’s my opinion about this sort of donation.

Leave birthday greetings in the following places. (Keep in mind that many have deadlines, so don’t dawdle!)

  • At
  • At Armitage Army, here. (You must be an Armitage Army member.)
  • At C19, here. (You must be a C19 member.)
  • At Richard Armitage Central, here. (You must be an RAC member.)

Watch for King Richard Armitage Week at the fan initiative. There will be a quiz and games and articles of all kinds.

There also will be some kind of charity stunt here at “me + richard armitage”, as there has been in the past.

Richard III news

Richard Armitage-related fanfic: Sexy, mature, slash, RPF, etc.

  • At DF: Obscura’s “Recovery” goes to ch. 14. (Strike Back / Porter + OFC.)
  • At AO3: “Richard and Layla” stories. (RPF / Armitage + OFC.) I’ve been trying to decide how I feel about these stories. I think they’re great stories. I don’t think she’s writing about Richard Armitage.

BestBuy-54Speaking of collateral attractions, Graham McTavish looks *great* with specs. Servetus makes passes at men who wear glasses!

OT, collateral attractions, and things I think about

  1. Thank you for the link…again! Of all the links here my favourite is one I’d already seen – the letter from John Callen…so unbelievably wonderful and kind. I felt quite moved the first time I read that!


  2. OH I love Legenda! Thanks so much for this and for the three mentions of Armitage Agonistes. You’re putting me on the fast road to 10,000.


  3. Thank you for all the links always, especially Thorin as the new archetype, fascinating, and RA’s creation not just PJ’s .


  4. It’ll be interesting to see whether she expands on this piece once she has more information from DOS.


  5. As always, thank you so much for curating all of this great stuff!


  6. de Circus Hond- the translation is terrible and still there’s something charming and original that comes through. Her color imagery is so appealing.


    • what she needs to do is do that machine translation herself and then correct it — her English isn’t bad. And she has interesting things to say.


  7. Interesting reading, as always. I followed a link and ended up back at the time of the original announcement of RA as Thorin- how things have changed from the early analysis that this would be a character role only, with no ‘heartthrob’ status at all!


  8. […] alt="Three Hours to Finish "Potato Peel" and Read Servetus's "Legenda" Suggestions via WIFI” […]


  9. If he played “The Elephant Man,” (which I think he joked about) there’d be heartthrob status- the voice.
