Richard, it’s all your FAULT


It’s gonna be a pretty miserable day here weather-wise, what with 90 percent chance of rain and a big temperature change on the way with it. FMS no likee these huge atmospheric changes. We really need the rain, however, and it’s been too unseasonably warm for December, so I am really not complaining.

Besides, I’ve got a certain gorgeous guy to drool over. Yes, I succumbed and was one of the 200 who pre-ordered my very own copy of the limited edition featuring Richard on the cover (as opposed to Billy Bob Thornton).


Here’s what the editor had to say on Facebook about the cover:

Morning all. Lots of excitement for our Winter issue launch, which is nice to see! Just thought we’d share some details with you about the limited edition Richard Armitage cover. The unique style and effect of the image is created by a particular technique of the photographer – Paula Parrish. She projects the original photograph onto a different surface – metal in this instance – and re-shoots it to get the final version. That is what gives the overall rugged effect – well, that and the subject of the photo, of course… from a Facebook entry for FAULT Magazine.

I found this interesting as I have used a metal overlay with some of my fanart to give it a grittier look–particularly with some of the images of Sgt. Portah.Β  I paid a ridiculous amount for a single copy of a magazine–especially when you factor in the postage costs–but it’s in support of the actor I do admire and adore. And hey, it’s a limited edition.Β  Heck, I can talk myself into almost anything where this man is concerned.

Oh, those crystal blue eyes brimming with humor and intelligence–thoseΒ irresistible smiles and infectious laughs–all that charisma and manliness and gentlemanly nature. I just can’t help it. It’s all your fault, Richard Armitage.

That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

  1. It was expensive but totally worth it, I’m sure. I decided to give myself an early birthday present, it’s coming up next month anyway! πŸ˜€ I can’t wait to have it in my hands! Do we know when will they start posting them?

  2. Sad and grey day here !
    After the Empire Magazine, the Thorin mug, the cute Thorin plush, the Thorin Lego I succumbed and ordered the Fault magazine !!!!! OMG I don’t recognize me !!!!!!!

  3. The image is striking. It reminds me of those old photographs from WWII. The landing in Normandy, in particular.

    I also ordered the magazine – after already getting the Empire mag in London (the Thorin issue was almost sold out). *blush*

    • It’s quite different from your standard glossy magazine cover, and I like that. A kind soul actually obtained a copy of the Empire mag from a London newsstand and sent it to me. Soon the world will catch on that RA is a hot seller. πŸ˜‰

  4. So true Angie! It’s all Richard’s fault. πŸ˜‰ I don’t seem to be able to resist, any more than I can resist the guy in the above pictures. I seem to fall for him in a whole new way every day.

    I’m almost afraid to total up what all this heap of Hobbity stuff has cost me so far between books, magazines, and calendars not to mention yet another book, the Thorin T-shirt and now Fault Magazine that I have on order – whew!! Who knows what I might succumb to yet! πŸ˜€ I’m going to be bankrupt at this rate. Not only that but these are all for little old ME!! How selfish is that? No sharing these beauties! Actually there are a couple of items I do have duplicates of that I *might* give away. Another excuse I’m using is that all of these are an “Investment”!! πŸ™‚

    I’m rather thrilled – not to mention intrigued – by this little quote I read today from an article on; “With several highly anticipated projects upcoming in the United States, Armitage is quickly rising as a leading man in Hollywood as well.” As we only know of Black Sky up till now this has got my mind on overdrive, so I’d love to hear what y’all think of these remarks! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ Can I just plead with TPTB that at least ONE of these “projects” could be “all about love”?

    • He’s such a special guy. I think all the interviews–not only what he’s said, but what’s been said about him as an actor and a human being–along with the wonderful photos, well it’s hard not to just fall for him hard all over again.

      I have no idea what those projects might be. We do know he’s planning to go back to LA for a bit, so that could tie into it.

  5. Count me in as another one who succumbed! I thought of waiting until Ali posted the discount voucher but with only 200 available, I didn’t want to take the chance that I’d miss out. Richard is well and truly worth spending the extra to ensure I have that photoshoot/interview in my hands.
    The Empire Hobbit issue is available here now, but just with standard covers it would seem. I’m happy that I ordered the Thorin cover from o/s. Now all I have to do is track down the Glamour UK magazine. πŸ˜‰
    I’ve also justified my purchases as presents to myself, given that Christmas, and my birthday, are coming up soon.

    As for the extra wait until after Christmas to see The Hobbit….I still get thoroughly peeved if I allow myself to dwell on it. *sigh*
