I found these images on FB posted by Fernanda Matias. I am not sure who the original artist is on Tumblr; if you know, please share, so I can give them credit. Ah, there’s lots to appreciate here. Yep . . . *sigh* EDIT: I think the artist may be serecenskyrim at Tumblr–“Let Sleeping Thorins Lie.”
. . . if you loved the edit (which apparently he/she did NOT do) or immersing yourself in the full splendor of this artwork, which we have displayed here before. I was misinformed on FB as to the actual artist’s identity, an honest mistake in my case, as I certainly was not taking credit for this amazing piece of fanart. 😉 Also FYI while I have a tumblr account, everything posted there goes directly there from here. Still haven’t figured out how to navigate the darned thing. So I am never actually “there.”
Here is Yanagoya’s artwork, as I said, apparently edited by someone else. I have to say this edit still has amazing power and intensity. Really brings focus to the eyes.
And here is the magnificent original:
Enjoy! Again, I apologize for any confusion or misinformation concerning the identity of the artist. Looking forward to more!
FYI Yanagoya is, as I believed to be the case, also known as Aaorin at Deviant Art. Thank you, Guylty, for confirming that.
Thank you, RA Central, and makingupgamesoffun at Tumblr for this RA FAULTY goodness. Oh, the eyelashes. That nose. The stubble. The biceps. The forearms and hands and . . . A song comes to mind. “I want to kiss you all over, and over again . . .”

How can I find watching a man roll up his sleeves or ties his shoelashes over and over again so– fascinating? Because it’s Richard Armitage, of course. Enjoy these gifs is4spunk reblogged from chibihobbit on tumblr.
And if you missed the first ones in an earlier post or just want to revisit *thud* here they are!
Hmmmmmm, look at that profile, ladies and gents. Sublime.
And the above will take you to the original iPad interview.
Want to share a cab, Mr. A?
I just had to share this one again. Yep. It still rocks my world. A lot.

@AwkwardCeleb @RAFrenzy It’s all here (in reverse chronological order) – http://playazindaback.tumblr.com/tagged/say-nice-things-about-detroit
I follow our friend AwkCeleb on Twitter and she tweeted a link to her
final fifth out of a planned seven Tumblr posts re her encounter with RA in Michigan, complete with photos and cartoons. All the entries are posted in reverse chronological order there. Check it out–funny and sweet and it re-affirms why we like that man so gosh darn much.
Here’s a quote I found on Caroline’s Tumblr site, recycledvinyl. I have read it before, but Richard’s quotes, like everything else about him, are worth a second, and third, and fourth–well, you know–read/look/listen.
“Do you know what I really love? I love skiing. I love the headlong rush. Because I have this love-hate relationship with control. The good moments, the best moments, are when I’m out of control.”
First of all, I am imagining Richard slipping those ski goggles into place, then setting off down the slope, his tall figure graceful as always, strong thighs flexing as he pivots and bends, a look that mixes focus with sheer exhilaration on his face, cheekbones flushed in the cold . . . it’s a sight I would love to see. Although the mother hen part of me also thinks, “Oh, do be careful, darling. Don’t break one of those beautiful legs!”
And even though I am a born klutz and would likely manage to break my neck on the bunny slopes if I attempted to ski, I can certainly see the appeal and the excitement of “danger sports,” as Richard refers to them.
And then the thought hits me. “Richard. Out of control.” Oh dear.
Now, why do I find that thought so—-arousing? Must be the Spring FeveRA hitting me again.

Well, there you go . . .
