“We were once a noble people, not tinkers and merchants
scraping around in the dirt for copper coins
but Dwarf Lords! Once we were Kings.”
Oh Thorin, I hear you man, do I ever hear you! You were trying to reclaim your people’s good name, get back to those happier times you remembered so fondly. You felt the quest worthy, you thought others wanted to share in that rebirth. But saying and doing are two different things, aren’t they?
I’m a lover not a fighter, Thorin. What’s best for me is to find a nice little cottage to settle down in, and remove myself from the action. I’ll leave the fighting to you; and I mean ALL the fighting, especially the subtle kind. So as of this moment, I no longer consider myself part of The Armitage Army. I’m discharging, going back to being a regular Richard Armitage admiring civilian.
(I checked with Porter, he assured me that this is allowed 😛 )
What does this mean?
Well, I’m still going to blog about Richard, celebrate Richard, share the things about Richard that make me admire him so darn much; I can’t give that up! What I am giving up, is the community 😐
My cottage is a friendly cottage though, so I welcome any Richard Armitage admirer, no matter your affiliations or what faction you are a part of, to stop in and have a chat with me.
This has always been about Richard for me
and so this way, it shall continue to be 😉
