Sir Guy, cereal and a rainy day


“So—Lady Writer.”

“Yes, Sir Guy?”

He peered over the notebook computer open on Lady Writer’s lap, his beautiful hands clasped behind his broad back as he tried to see the screen. In spite of the numerous thunderstorms and torrential rains of the afternoon pushing the humidity right up there, his raven locks were as smooth and silky as ever. How did he do it?

“How are you, dear LW?”

She looked up from the screen into those azure eyes, rimmed in the midnight blue kohn pencil from Sephora she had given him as a gift–gosh, she never, ever tired of looking into those spectacular peepers!–and gave him a wry smile.

“Well, I can now understand why my knee was doing the Rice Krispies yesterday–snap, crackle and pop. The bad weather was preparing to cometh.”

Sir Guy folded his arms and nodded. “I would think it is much more pleasant to eat this cereal than to feel the–erm–sound effects?”

His eyes brightened as his lips curved into a delighted smile at the thought of food.  LW’s heart gave a little flip-flop. She never tired of Sir Guy’s sweet, disarming smiles. Now that he was SND, he didn’t go around with a face like thunder nearly as often.

He just ate her out of house and home and bickered with Porter, but even those two managed to bury the hatchet (and not in each other’s skulls) more often than not.

Sir Guy was still waxing rhapsodic about noisy breakfast food.

“I really like the Cocoa Krispies. With sliced banana. My Creator is very fond of choccie and bananas, you know.” He paused, gave a wistful little sigh, and tossed back an errant lock of raven hair.  “It’s a little early for our next repast, I suppose?”

Lady Writer bit her lip to refrain from chuckling. Sir Guy was a little sensitive about his extraordinary appetite.  He could be touchy at times, which is why she had given him the magic sword that only worked when she said so. After all, when you are the queen of your fanfic universe, you can do such things.

” Oh, an hour and a half, or so. There’s a bag of Gala apples in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator if you need something to tide you over, Sir Guy.”

He gave her a courtly little bow but did not seem in a hurry to exit. Arms still folded, Sir Guy cleared his throat and glanced down at his boots.

“Might I ask–am I still the most popular ChaRActer on your blog?” In spite of his studied nonchalance, the Dark Knight clearly was hoping to hear good news. It showed so clearly in those ever-expressive eyes as they met Lady Writer’s.

Lady Writer smiled up at him.

“Sir Guy, I think the ladies live for Guyday Friday. You are very much loved at The Armitage Effect. As are, of course, the other lads. And the Creator himself, of course.”

“Oh, of course, I know the others have their devoted admirers, too,” he replied graciously. Still, Sir Guy was unable to keep a rather smug little smirk from crossing his face.  Really, he wouldn’t be Sir Guy without one of those trademark smirks every now and again.

He turned on his booted heel to stride out the door, then paused.

“Is there anything else, Sir Guy?”

“Y-e-e-s . . . am I also still the most common ChaRActer featured in your new fanart?” He rumbled.

“Closing in on 250, Sir Guy. No one else really comes close . . .”

A naughty gleam appeared in those smoky eyes as he gave her a lop-sided grin. “Oh, that I know very well . . .”

He was rather incorrigible. And very much loved.

And not exactly hard on the eyes . . .

  1. “Magic mirror on the wall / Who is the fairest of them all?” and in Italian too: “Specchio, specchio delle mie brame, chi è il più bello del reame?”

    Sir Guy is really the most vain of the ChaRActers, LadyWriter? Yes he is, but he is so screamingly attractive that we can forgive him this – and other – faults.

    I would only recommend, in order to keep his fashionable style, to use pure black eyeliner, if he wants to avoid the drag queen effect with other colors LOL!

    I hope Sir is not eating too much and you feel better soon!

    • Thanks, Carla. 😀 Yes, Sir Guy is the vainest of all the characters–well, with the possible exception of Lifeguard Lee 😉 But one has to admit he has a lot to be a bit of a peacock over. 😉 His midnight liner is actually a blue-black so it complements his eyes without making him look like a drag queen. 😉

  2. This is fabulous, angie! I had to laugh at the apples in the crisper. I’d love a dollar for every time I told my son to grab an apple if he needed something to tide him over until the next meal. 🙂

    BTW I’ve just been over to RecycledVinyl. She has a link there to a ten hour (yes,TEN) loop of Richard singing Misty Mountains. Guess what I’m listening to?!!! 😉

    • 10 Hours!!! Even I don’t think I could listen to 10 hours of the same song. Even if it is sung by our deep, sexy voiced dwarf 🙂

      • I would have to have it broken up into chunks. I have worked on some videos where I have listened to snatches of the same song repeatedly for up to two to three hours at a time, but not longer than that in one session. 😉

        • I’ve listened to about ten, fifteen minutes, and, as much as I love hearing his voice, I’ve started to tune out a little, so time to turn it off. Chunks are good! At least it’s there if you want it!! 🙂

    • I’ve felt Sir Guy hovering around me today. He does have a hollow leg, that one. My mother-in-law had four strapping boys and as I recall they were constantly hungry.
      My favorite healthy snack is an apple, followed by a banana. I remember Richard eating the banana during Hood Academy, and Guy biting into the apple he stole from Marian. Love, love, love watching the man eat. *SIGH* So are you going to listen to all ten hours of the loop? 🙂

      • Re loop, see above! 🙂
        I love bananas. After a cyclone last year in Queensland destroyed banana crops, the price went up to around the AUD14-15 p/kg mark, and I had to ration myself to a couple per week, instead of one every day. None were imported to ease the shortage. I had banana cravings! Thank goodness prices are back down now.
        Like you, I adore watching Richard eat, especially the Hood Academy banana. He tackles it with such relish, completely oblivious to being on camera, thank goodness, or we would never have had the pleaasure!!

      • I’m glad Sir Guy is hovering. He is supposed to be looking after you, even if he’s constantly raiding your pantry and your fridge. Yes, he is still the most popular of all. On DF, the list of fanfic featuring Sir Guy is easily four times longer than the list for other ChaRActers.
        As for my favourite healthy snack…

  3. Guy is certainly vain, which is not normally a loveable trait, but somehow I find it rather endearing in Guy.. 🙂

    • I think we forgive Guy his vanity because we know underneath all the swagger of the great “I Am” there is still a vulnerable, conflicted, sensitive boy who yearns not only for wealth and power, but for love and family and a home, too–all the things denied him when he lost his own family. He has his insecurities so he takes a certain satisfaction in his appearance and being well-groomed. He may not have the land and riches, but he can at least look the part of the handsome knight.

  4. All this enthusiastic eating reminded me of the bite RA’s takes out of a sandwich in the Spooks extras s7 it looks as though he will demolish it in one bite… plus fingers!

    • I love that photo, too. I love how he eats with such relish and gusto. Well, he is a big man and an active one, so he has to stay fueled. And I sure enjoy watching him do so1 😉

  5. Oh Angie this is lovely Sir Guy is so insecure sometimes isn’t he? I just want to throw my arms around his neck and give him a big hug!!!
