Before I broke down and forced myself to watch Robin Hood
I had a hard time grasping why so many Richard Armitage fans went ga-ga over Guy of Gisborne….and so I routinely scrolled past the pictures of him that I encountered daily.
The very idea distresses me now.
I thought the series 3 long hair made Guy seem too feminine (secretly I think I was just jealous of those beautiful curls)
The somewhat plastic-looking black leather of previous series, with all of it’s various metal fastenings and space-aged shoulder ribbing turned me away as well. As did the aptly named guy-liner; never been a fan of it, in general.
and the smirk kind of annoyed me.
Slowly my horizons broadened though, once I found out more about Guy and his motivations.
Thanks, in large part, to the Guy of Gisborne tagged posts on Me+Richard, which highlights particular story-lines and the use of Richard’s microexpressions to dig deeper into Guy’s actions.
Since this post is about a Guy related confession, I thought it only fitting that I include the Guy and Marian Confession fanvid that I’ve been obsessing over lately:
(I love the candle scene where Guy comforts Marian; the chase goes along perfectly with the music!) I think if we, as RA fans, put ourselves into the place of the confessor in the chorus of the song, it’s easy to recognize the parallels.
I feel myself surrender each time I see your face. I am staggered by your beauty, your unassuming grace. And I feel my heart is turning, falling into place. I can’t hide it, now hear my confession.
