I don’t normally make split-second-decision fangirling-type posts…until now.

This video.


The parted hair *heart palpitation no.1*

The tying of the shoe *heart palpitation no.2*

The hands *breathing stutters*

Slicking back the hair with the hands *serious lip biting*

The brow crinkle *indistinguishable noise*



erotica? porn? pff! no need.

I’ll just watch this for the rest of eternity.

  1. I totally agree, of course. I just can’t get that “I know what I’m selling” quote out of my mind. I see this and think, yeah, he does know what he’s selling. And of course, I’m buying.

      1. This vid is from last year, right? How have we missed it? Where has it been all this time? All our lives? πŸ™‚


    1. You know what…. I love the man, but I think that’s just something he says in order not to “go there”. I just don’t believe he doesn’t know it, with the poses he can strike. I think he has to be more body-conscious than that… if that makes sense. Kind of like when he responded to the interviewer in NZ, “we were all really hot, we were sweating…..” yada yada, after she called him a hot dwarf. He knows it, but he’s not comfortable dialoguing about it (at least on the record).


    1. my fangirling routine: this video; the ending of the Anglophile Channel Crucible vid that shows Richard receiving his applause/walking off stage; and the Thorin Audition. rinse and repeat.

    1. I have no clue. I can’t decide whether the person who is responsible should be slapped for keeping it hidden until now or kissed for bringing it out of hiding at just this moment.


  2. Oh my goodness ….. this is just the most gorgeous video ever. Much as I’m proud of Thorin and John Proctor …. I just can’t wait for him to ditch the beard! Thanks for sharing xxxxxxxxxxx

    1. There is NO bad version of this man, but in my heart of hearts I’m devoted to the stubble look! (Which requires clean shaven PART of the time πŸ™‚


  3. So I sent this video to three girlfriends. Really good girlfriends. I don’t bore them too much with my Armitage obsession. I only send the very best stuff — once every three months or so. I don’t think I’m making a fool of myself, but one wrote back: “Yes, my dear, he is cute. But no. He does not rock my world by putting on cufflinks.”

    This is why I need you guys.


    1. I wondered about how a non RA fan would react. It was clearly a hit with fans but is it just us? Thanks for sharing your experience. If I get anyone to watch it I’ll let you know πŸ™‚
