    The Devil’s in the Details: An analysis of Proctor’s physique (strictly for scientific purposes) #RichardArmitage #Crucible

    This post contains spoilers with regards to the plot/scenes of The Crucible, so if you are yet to see the play, I suggest you give it a miss.

    It also a shameless fangirl approach to Armitage/Proctor, so if you’re sensitive to the issue of RA objectification, I’d give it a miss too ;)


    Now that my adventure is well and truly over, I guess The Crucible genie is out of the bottle and there are so…

    AgzyM does London or Ramblings of a textbook fat, white, middle-aged RA Fan #RichardArmitage #TheCrucible

    This is a mammoth of a post, but I didn’t want to chop it up, but it definitely wins the award for most words AgzyM has ever tried to squeeze in at one time.

    I make no apologies for the rambling nature of this post and understand completely if you skim it and get to the good stuff (meaning RA pics).

    For that purpose I have separated the post into parts so you can just omit the sections that are…

    For Guylty…”Friendship is a light in dark times”


    I had written a huge intro, but I decided to keep it simple: Let’s give back a little bit of that positive energy that Guylty has been showering us with.

  9. Nice things to whisper when hugging someone


    -you smell different when you’re awake
    -please help me (then smile as if nothing happened)
    -you have lovely skin, I can’t wait to wear it
    -your hair tastes like strawberries
    -he knows, don’t go home.
    -I always knew you would die in my arms
    -every time I poop I think of you
    -no one will ever believe you
    -I killed mufasa

    -mother told me it would be like this

    Normally I don’t post about or comment on anything regarding BC’s personal life, but I would like to this time. 
    For context click here. Apparently(!) quote from Rebecca Eaton about Benedict’s personal life. (please keep in mind(!) that it is not presented as a direct quote in the article and was possibly worded differently in reality, but there is no way to verify that atm, so I will work with what I got)

    to answer your question:

    insulting. unnecessary. ignorant. unappreciative.

    those are the words that come to mind.

    • Showing up at red carpets/events in support (creating a bigger event - giving it bigger attention in the media) —> Tiff13 (x)

    • voting in online polls - making “that odd looking British fella” win and talked about on various platforms —>Sherlock Benedict Cumberbatch beats Obama in Time 100 Online Poll.” (x)

    • getting things trending on twitter - breaking records —> The Sherlock series three final was the most tweeted about single episode of a drama series ever, while the season as a whole racked up almost 1 million tweets.” (x)

    • "Benedict Cumberbatch was the most re-blogged actor in 2013 on tumblr!" (x)

    • taking pictures at events or filming locations - posting them online - creating exposure and interest for the event/film/actor that has not necessarily been there before

    • getting the word out online, with campaigns, etc (free of charge) —> “In honor of John Watson’s unwavering loyalty to his departed friend, #BelieveinSherlock has begun. In barely two weeks, this fan-created viral campaign has spread all over the world.” (x)

    • donating to projects —> "Little Favour raised £86,240 through crowdfunding in 12 days, outstripping the original target of £25,000." (x)

    • donating massively to charity —> “Cumberfans from all around the globe donated money in Cumberbatch’s name, with the total raised entirely exceeding expectations. So far over £7,300 has been pledged, with the amount still rising.” (over £10,000 in the end) (x) — “Last year we raised £15,000 for Myeloma UK.” (x) — “‘Benedict Cumberbatch, who is an ambassador for The Prince’s Trust has so far raised an astonishing £23,778 from fans around the world and friends for The Prince’s Trust for this year’s event.” (x)

    • "who are you here for?" "Benedict Cumberbatch" "Who is that?" "got 3 hours?" …. "Wow .. I need to check out his work."

    • buying tickets for events (not for free) which normally would not sell out within a day - therefore creating momentum online (for free) —> "The actor’s appearance is thought to have sparked the second quickest ticket sellout in the festival’s history." (x)

    • buying all. the. DVDs - breaking pre-order records —> "The popular BBC drama broke the record for the most customer pre-orders for a program yet to finish broadcasting." (x)

    • recommending his films/ series/ documentaries/ radio shows/ audiobooks/ associated projects to … everyone

    • buying /obtaining all magazines where he is on the cover —> high life magazine disappearing from flights: “We are thrilled with the response so far. We always strive to create the best-in-class content and Benedict Cumberbatch is quickly proving the most popular cover star we have ever had in our 41-year history.” (x)
    • breaking some more records —> Cabin Pressure: “They had already broken a record – for the most ever ticket requests for a single Radio 4 comedy recording ever with 22,854 applications.” (x)

    • buying theatre tickets AND a theatre membership - causing a big increase in earnings for certain events —> “If you’re prepared to stump up £100, to become a “red member” of the Barbican, you could put yourself at the front of the queue by more than a week.” (x)

    • going to see Frankenstein again and again , therefore supporting the National Theatre —> “National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.” (x)

    • buying and reading classics and therefore forming a better understanding of culture, literature, zeitgeist, etc —> "That year, sales of Sherlock Holmes books increased by 53 per cent – from around 57,000 copies to 88,000 – compared with 2009. 2011 saw a further increase." (x)

    • writing fiction (be it RPF or not), therefore creating a creative outlet and improving people’s English writing, reading and comprehension skills —> currently 61,712 Sherlock works on AO3 (x) (not including RPF and other platforms for fan fiction)

    • finding something to communicate about with strangers - creating bonds that last a lifetime, getting together in communities online or at conventions, organising Sherlock -meetups, etc  
    • being inspired to act, to write, to draw, to work photoshop & video editing, to read (more), to think critically, to improve research skills, to improve one’s English skills … and in some cases: to have a reason to get out of bed in the morning or to smile…

    …. all THAT would STOP if “all those “Cumberbitches” moved on”… and I don’t think that is in anyone’s best interest! 
    Because I SERIOUSLY hope it wasn’t implied that every single fan thinks they 
    >realistically< have a shot with the fella and are only here for that one reason.
