Game of Thrones Hope Alive + Hot Stuff Returns Tues + Garden Gnome Antidote Monday...need to make that image go away:)



Following is filed under 'fervent hope for a dream to come true' upon reading on one of the Game of Thrones sites of author Geo Martin's recent remark "he'd not yet seen Stannis Baratheon tryouts".  Various opinions given, including it could mean HBO is already in negotiations for someone to play the part.  Dreams have come true in the past, this is not the time to stop believing. 
Background for non-readers:
Stannis is the brooding rightful king of Westeros - in his yearning to sit on the Iron Throne of the 7 kingdoms, he falls under the spell of the red priestess..Melisandre.  Casting call for the roles referred to the duo as 'lovers' despite the fact Geo Martin never gave their relationship quite that clear a description.  Readers therefore speculate the HBO screen adaptation will portray a more intense relationship between moody, brooding Stannis and the fiery red temptress, Melisandre...


Oh yes,  off to a good start...memory fading...    Yikes! it's back...won't go away...

Need to find reallly powerful antidote....


The winner of the tropical island tryst poll can work his magic as well..



There....one more to make certain it's gone...

Brought in heavy artillery to keep those gnome mental images at bay....


To counteract Sue's suggestion that RA's recent getup resembled a smurf...erasing that blue image with this one...


This should be the stake in the heart of that gnome..figuratively that is..sort of like a veggie stake..

Believe it says "For Christchurch love, Richard A"

LOL: - Suddenly snowwhite and the 7 dwarfs got a new meaning:)

Musa said...

I want an RA gnome or two for my balcony! How cute! LOL

Naughty Gnomes!

Sue said...

I have a sneaky suspicion that Richard may have been a gnome model in another life, see:

That lovely bum looks rather familiar don't you think? Well RA did say he'd been a dwarf before!

Perhaps Aidan Turner could do a similar pose with a piece of shamrock covering his nether regions (rather than a fig leaf - well he is Irish)

Gosh, that big pic of his eyes is stunning, aren't they stunning?

LOL, to think of 7 RA-alike dwarfs and SnowWhite, hehe

OML :)

RiCrAr said...

Oh yes, OML, those eyes are mesmerizing...Richard learned yrs ago to totally seduce the camera.

An RA garden gnome business would probably be profitable, Musa:) especially the shirtless ones w/chesticles. You design and I'll advertize..we can set up shop on ebay:)

haha..Sue, leave it to you to think of a mooning gnome;) Is Aiden Turner Irish?..thought he was born in England. Noticed he does have a faithful following but he seems rather boyish to me. Prefer a mature male who has already learned what to value in life.

I'm volunteering for the Snow White role, alfie....if Richard's one of her dwarves, I'll definitely whistle while I work.

Sue said...

Actually Richard dressed in his get up might just pass for one of the smurfs!

Hi ho, hi ho it's off to....oops sorry Ricrar...done it again.
The updated photo from the Ozzie Herald featured on RichardArmitage.net (topless in Spooks) made me forget briefly :P

MsG68 said...

..oh and popping back down to your Wed's Kisses helped too... :P

RiCrAr said...

O.K. with everyone's help, believe we've successfully retrieved Mr Hotstuff's sizzling image pre the cherry-cheeked gnome invasion.

Joanna said...

O God,don't let me talk about his eyes...I'm pathetic enough already:D

RiCrAr said...

Yes, Joanna, that's quite a stirring intense gaze from Lucas.

Rekindled hope that somehow Richard will play the leading role of Stannis Baratheon in GoT2. Readers are speculating that HBO is already in negotiations with someone - so far they've not had tryouts for the role.

RiCrAr said...

MsG and all - hope you've all seen bccmee's latest wallpaper using the above luscious Lucas pic. It's really a beautiful tribute to our fav spook.

Musa said...

Wonder if GRRM will tease us with clues about who will be Stannis? You're right that they've paid quite a bit of attention to fan suggestions, so we'll see :)

Love bccmee's wallpaper and that Lucas pic...swoon

RiCrAr said...

Musa, isn't it interesting that the casting call describes the Stannis/Melesandre relationship as lovers? Martin never really clearly spelled that out, did he. Although there was a strong suggestion in a very strange way - the pitter patter of little who knows what?? haha George's unique imagination at work again.

MsG68 said...

No! Missed the wallpaper...where is it! Where is it? Let me at it...

RiCrAr said...

MsG, I've added the wallpaper temporarily to latest post to give you a chance to see it.

MsG68 said...

Thank you, it's delicious ;P
