Richard Armitage Legenda 99: 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 doesnโ€™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.]

If you liked the work of bloggers featured here, do this please — at their sites!


Note that some tumblr links are interspersed throughout the categories this week, but if I’ve put a tumblr link outside of the tumblr section, I believe that that link itself is safe for work. No guarantees if you click around the site, however.

Your reactions to Richard Armitage’s latest reading recommendation?

This is my candidate for best reaction to the news, although it preceded the information, so they’re totally unrelated. It’s not a reaction. Funny nonetheless.

Responses to the Richard Armitage “woof”

More beautiful hair from LA. Ah.

[Servetus loves this because “Armitage” is derived from the same word as “Hermitage.”]

Richard Armitage-related fanfic

  • Obscura reflects on the research necessary for her Porter fanfic, “Recovery.”
  • My Story Blog covets your story recommendations.
  • At Something about Love (A): “Thorin’s Dream of Love” goes to ch. 2. and ch. 3. (Tolkien AU / Romance).
  • At wattpad: The Arkenstone’s “Rubbing Me the Wrong Way,” part 3. Further humorous / flirty adventures of Thorin / Lady 0akenshield.
  • At wattpad: MorrighansMuse’s “A Willing Heart,” goes to ch. 18. (Tolkien AU / romance).
  • At A03: RAllatrix’s “Jeans.” (RPF / Armitage + OFC / mature.) A female friend with benefits thrifts Armitage button-fly jeans.
  • At A03: sentientblueberry’s “Stupid Shit.” (RPF / Armitage + reader / mature.) Armitage in bed with a fan.
  • At triple-r-porn: “Richard Fantasy #8: Thorin / Reader.” (Thorin + OFC / mature.) His unwilling fiancรฉe catches Thorin bathing. With illustrations.
  • OT fanfic recommendation: deadonarrival and a_bit_not_good_yeah’s “Professor AU (Graduation Day Universe” stories at Sometimes I Just Think Funny Things. (RPF / slash / O’Gorman + Turner). Perfect combination of fluff, angst, and sex for the Aidean fangirl (and for me).
  • And a little more Aidean, while I’m at it: at A03, blue_butterfly’s “At the end of the rainbow.” I’m waiting for every chapter of this with anticipation. Potentially very triggering for victims of sexual harassment — DO NOT IGNORE DISCLAIMERS, THIS IS BRUTAL — but I find it cathartic to read, and so well written.

Popular search string this week, but will it last?

The kind of thing I hope Richard Armitage knows


Richard Armitage Tumblr

Keep in mind that tumblr is variably NSFW.

OK, maybe I will post it: Hair substantiates rumors that Richard Armitage has signed to play Jesus


And then there’s this. I guess we’d call this the “church militant”. And what about Moses?
