‘Nowhere in Particular RA’ is a fan blog that charts the path I took as I discovered British actor Richard Armitage; his talent, his charisma, and the fandom that surrounds him. it’s a lighthearted look into his characters and the feelings they invoke in us, a celebration of his personal charm, a peek into the life of an actor and the fans who choose to follow him.
Don’t know where to start? on the Archives page you’ll find a list of post titles with short summaries describing what each post is about. the Blog Series page lists groupings of posts that were part of themed series, such as questionnaires and fandom projects. in the footer at the bottom of this page you can also find a list of ‘Top Posts’. I hope you have as much fun reading my posts as I had writing them!
as a sampling of what to expect on ‘Nowhere in Particular RA’, I’ve recreated one of my favorite posts below:
Unconditionally and Irrevocably
Once Upon a Time I didn’t know who Richard Armitage was.
Then a friend posted this pic on our forum:
I’d like to say the clouds opened up and glittering rays of sunlight suddenly filled my world…but they didn’t.
Not to be deterred she then posted shots of Mr. Thornton and waxed lyrical about the cravat.
I browsed happily but still no heralding trumpets were heard.
Then I saw this Richard Armitage fellow for myself in The Hobbit and something stirred.
I was finally ready to take my friend seriously.
Who is this guy?
What else has he been in?
What should I watch next?
She suggested The Vicar of Dibley: The Handsome Stranger
…and my life has never been the same.
I’d like to thank that friend for sharing her crush with me. it’s changed my life irrevocably.
