RA nipples :)

I recently developed a certain fetish for his nipples. You can’t even imagine how embarrassing it is to write it here and to assume my post ! Especially since I’ve said several times that his nudity made me feel uncomfortable because I don’t want to objectify him. Richard is so much more than a nice body! But there’ss no harm in doing good, and I confess that, like many of you, Strike Back has tickled my imagination 😛 So here’s a little collage from my nipple folder (yes, I have a folder dedicated to his nipples, as well as one for his hand, and nose…)

J’ai récemment développé une certaine fascination pour ses tétons. Vous n’imaginez même pas combien c’est embarrassant de l’écrire ici et d’assumer mon post ! Surtout en sachant que j’ai répété plusieurs fois que sa nudité me mettait mal à l’aise car je ne veux pas le considérer comme un objet. Richard est beaucoup plus qu’un joli corps ! Mais il n’y a pas de mal à se faire du bien, et j’avoue que, comme beaucoup d’entre nous, Strike Back a titillé mon imagination 😛 Voici donc un petit collage tiré de mon dossier « tétons » (oui, j’ai un dossier dédié à cette partie de son corps, ainsi qu’à ses mains, et son nez…) 

A RA quote not to my liking

Tumblr is the perfect place to create, reblogg and share all sorts of graphics and I love it for what it is. But sometimes I need to express myself, share ideas on more than a few lines, and it’s really not the appropriate place. That’s why I decided to join Wordpress in the first place. This and the fact that I can now easily comment on blogs I read assiduously.

So here I am developing on a quote that bothers me. It’s from an interview you can find on richardarmitagenet, I don’t quite like this interview because Richard is revealing too much to my liking. When you see that today’s communication is non-existent,  Hobbit teasing  I presume, we’re switching from one extreme to another !

said faulty quote

At first, since english isn’t my native language, I wondered if  the word bloke was only used to talk about men or if it could be a more generic word like guy. Recycledvinyl, whose the one behind these wonderful quotes, was nice enough to answer me and confirm the ugly truth. Richard, oh, sweetie, why assume that these instincts are a male preserve ? Do women have monogamy written in their dna ? Don’t  misunderstand me,  even though I’ve been raised by women, I’m not a hardcore feminist who sees evil everywhere. Women’s rights are important to me but not at the expense of men’s. Because I totally relate to this quote, I understand it, feel it in my flesh and agree with it. Which is why that implication differentiating male and female urges bothers me.

Above all, it’s this vision of human nature which send me back to who I am and what I did. Once again, RA is the trigger for a deeper personal reflection. I remember who I was, this hopeless lover, this passionate child. I’m not by any mean a remarkable woman, just a petite brown-eyed brunette. But I have in my favor a nice smile, a catchy look and above all an enterprising spirit. I have absolutely no confidence in me, I could write pages and pages about my physical and moral defects, but I think I have that kind of recklessness and pride born from fear that drives you out of your comfort zone . I’m bluffing, always. And that’s what worked. Men are sometimes so coward that being chosen rather than having to choose is much easier for them. So I chose them or forced them to choose me.

I don’t know for them, but in my own way I’ve loved them all. I’m in love with love, I know, as I wrote above, I’m a hopeless romantic. For me nothing is like this excitement  before acting out, this courtship, this exquisite pain that plunges us into uncertainty « does he/she like me? ». I’ve lived for those moments. And once the object of my desire granted, I needed a new prey. I multiplied them, losing myself in my feelings and in this headlong rush because I had been broken. For the game.

I understand perfectly Richard’s point of view. The charm of novelty, curiosity towards other people, the adrenaline rush, these doubts, this game completely addictive. I know how it works, how it can be attractive, especially when we  lack of confidence. It’s reassuring to see that we can be attractive, especially to someone we want ! I just wished he wouldn’t have been so narrow-minded back in the day to restrict his statement to men.

30 Day Richard Armitage Challenge

Day 30. Your favourite picture.

It took me some time to complete this challenge. I couldn’t choose my favorite photo. Besides, I haven’t really chosen one because it’s a slide show, but hey, you get the idea.

Of course, I love my avatar, taken from the Project Mag photoshoot, or this one from the 2007 promo shoot. There are also quite a few other pictures that launch butterflies in my stomach every time I see them because Richard looks straight at the lens, and it’s almost as if he were looking straight at me.

But ultimately, I chose this(these) picture from the Robin Hood Academy. Why? First, he’s drop dead gorgeous  with his scruffy face. But it’s mainly because he’s very focused on what he’s doing, he’s completely oblivious to the camera. It shows his dedication to his work. The posture he has while using his bow  is beautiful, this line created by his arms, his muscles enhanced, his face so serious and absorbed in his work, and even his cheap clothes …. I love everything.


Jour 30. Votre photo préférée.

Il m’a fallu du temps pour terminer ce challenge. Je n’arrivais pas à choisir ma photo préféré. D’ailleurs, je n’ai pas vraiment choisi puisqu’il s’agit d’un diaporama, mais bon, vous comprenez l’idée.

Il y a bien sûr mon avatar que j’adore, tiré du photoshoot pour project mag, ou encore celle-ci du promo shoot de 2007. Il a aussi pas mal d’autres photos qui lancent des papillons dans mon ventre à chaque fois que je les vois parce que Richard regarde l’objectif, et c’est un peu comme si c’était moi qu’il regardait.

Mais au final, j’ai choisi cette (ces) photo de la Robin Hood Academy. Pourquoi ? Déjà, il est à tomber par terre avec sa barbe de 3 jours. Mais c’est surtout parce qu’il est très concentré sur ce qu’il fait, il ignore complètement a caméra. La posture qu’il a en tirant à l’arc est magnifique, cette ligne créée par ses bras, sa musculature mise en valeur, son visage si sérieux et absorbé par ce qu’il fait, et même ses vêtements pourris…. j’aime tout. 

An actor’s life is…

 » [La vie d’acteur est] aventureuse et dangereuse. Vous devez être patient et être capable de trouver de la satisfaction dans l’insatisfaction. Vous éprouvez beaucoup de frustration [dans ce métier]. Avec le recul, lorsque vous regardez votre performance, vous n’êtes jamais content, mais vous devez être en mesure de trouver un peu de satisfaction dans ce que vous avez fait, ou vous ne pourrez pas continuer. « 

30 Day Richard Armitage Challenge : Day 29

Day 29. Your favorite personnal look : 2nd production video of the Hobbit

It wasn’t really difficult to choose one look since there isn’t that much to choose from. Richard is not a specialist of public appearances, he’s not the target of paparazzi – which is a good thing – but therefore we’re sorely lacking more “personnal” pictures. It’s certain that the clothes he wears for public events (interviews and ceremonies) aren’t his.

Why this one ? Leather jacket, beard, natural hair color, v neck t-shirt.

Ok, he’s a bit red in the face, but he’s smiling, he’s so normal looking, so natural, and seems so happy that I can’t resist him 🙂

Why me ? (part 3 )

Last but not least – i hope ! -, the final question. Actually, this is very stupid, but there’s a simple reason why I, an almost 25 years old french woman – oh my god, I‘m a grown up – have succumbed to his charm. He reminds me of an ex, especially with the beard. When I was 18/19 years old, basically a kid I went out with two actors, two opposites, both physically and mentally, but they were united in their profession, their passion. The one who was the most important to me was a tall dark haired guy with a long nose and piercing blue eyes. Quite older than me too, he was already a man when I was not yet a woman. His beard stung my cheeks every time he kissed me and I do not think I need to specify his name to complete the picture yes it starts with a R.

a momentary Richard interruption

My tastes haven’t really changed since. I keep three memories of him, the 1st, he, lying on his bed and, when he has just explain to me the necessity of his single life, the fact that he he can’t take his eyes off my backside when I get up. I still smile when I think about it. His contradiction. He’s also the man with a hard and indecipherable face, the man who suddenly imposes himself on me in a shout “I exist!”. Ultimate expression of his being. He frightens me, he hurts me. His violence, his toughness, strength. He’s this fragile man with tear-filled eyes who stumbles, who flays his mouth in confessing to me ”but I love my father.” His weakness.

and another one… 🙂

He was a child, not a man. He was no longer a man when he pressed me against him, when he laid his head on my lap and he buried it in the pit of my arm. I think what I like about Ra is part of what he shares with that other Richard. I’ve the same protective instinct, very maternal towards him, I feel his strength but also his vulnerability. I feel this duality in him, but also the fierce passion that fascinates me. I still googled this ex from time to time, to see where his career takes him, and what he does 🙂

30 Day Richard Armitage Challenge : Day 28

Day 28. Your favourite character outfit.

Héhéhé, almost done ! This one was a perfect excuse to go through pages and pages of RA screencaps on richardarmitagenet.com (but in the ninja way = without le BF noticing it because THAT would be embarassing)

I’ve already stated how much I fancy Lucas’ wardrobe. I’ve chosen two outfits because I can ;-). The first one is from series 7 episode 3, I simply love his coat and the fact that he’s being splattered with blood in it. The second one is from series 8 episode 8 because I love when Richard suits up, even when it’s ill fitted.


Jour 28. Votre tenue préférée d’un personnage.

Héhéhé, bientôt terminé ! C’était la parfaite excuse pour regarder des pages et des pages de captures d’écran de RA sur richardarmitagenet.com (et en mode ninja pour éviter que le BF ne le remarque car ce serait vraiment TRES embarrassant ;-))

J’ai déjà précisé combien j’apprécie la garde-robe de Lucas. J’ai donc choisi deux de ses tenues parce que je le peux ;-). La première est tirée de l’épisode 3 de la saison 7, parce que j’aime tout simplement son manteau et aussi parce qu’il se fait éclabousser de sang alors qu’il le porte. La 2ème tenue est tirée de l’épisode 8 de la saison 8 car j’adore quand Richard porte un costume, même quand il est mal coupé.

Day 27. Your favourite gif(s)

I don’t have a favorite gif (especially with those awesome sets), or maybe I have too much, so I’ve decided to take the firsts I saw in my folder. If I really had to choose , it would probably be the first one, yes, it’s mine, but it has such an effect on me… because  I really wonder how he looks when he comes

Thanks to mabelalexa, dessine—moi—un-mouton, natcrawlers and ryxp.


Jour 27. Votre gif préféré.

Je n’en ai pas de préféré (surtout avec tout ces sets extraordinnaires), ou alors j’en ai peut-être trop, j’ai donc décidé de prendre les premiers que je voyais dans mon dossier. Si je devrais vraiment choisir, je pense que mon choix s’arrêterait malgré tout sur le premier. Oui, c’est le mien, mais il a un tel effet sur moi…. car je me demande vraiment à quoi il ressemble lorsqu’il jouit.
