Tuesday Musings: Richard Armitage’s Characters Join Twitter, October 21, 2014 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #650)

After I was flabbergasted that Richard Armitage finally joined Twitter–and he is taking to it effortlessly, like a “duck to water”–I wondered how RA’s characters’ alter egos might fare in Twitterland?  So what follows is an impromptu RA Character discussion story in 140 character tweets each.  ***Facetious Alert***

Grati@GratianaL:   The scene is a dark and smoky local pub & grill–the Beer Tweet Garden, where men can talk without feminine interruption, somewhat.


Rich@RCArmitage: I don’t tweet often. & when I do, I am usually quirky. The ladies like my humor–the pork especially–except for my “leg count” comment.

JohnT@MasteroftheMills: You had no thought for your reputation!?! And pork should not be wasted on one’s chins. Such a foolish passion.

TheImpressionistseip1_036RichardArmitageasClaudeMonetJan0713ranet-smlClaude@TheImpressionist: Mon Dieu! Mes cheveux sont atroces. Bien que ma moustache ne attirer les dames. Et je préfère mes repas sur une plaque, pas mon menton.

Translation : My god! My hair is atrocious. Though my moustache does attract the ladies. And I prefer my meals on a plate, not my chin.


JohnS@IDon’tNameMyFood: I’ll just have the sausage. *I grab two from the platter* Shall we … follow each other, then?

Grati@GratianaL: If only the parsimonious @Idon’tNameMyFood could bequeath his unused 44 tweet characters to others in need, such as moi.

JohnP@GunforHire: Excuse me all over the place  if I find your tweet char limit concerns ill timed. Come on, I’m a very good boy. Cut me down and we can …

Spooks - Series 9

LucasJohn@ConfusedSpy: Never mind him @GratianaL. Close your eyes. *whispers as he draws her close* What are you best at, real or faking it?

Grati@GratianaL: *Grati indignantly slaps his face hard, leaving her tiny palm print* That depends @Confused Spy. I remember. But do you?


GuyG@GisborneStallion: Please let me in to your heart, @GratianaL Let me look after you, protect you. *looks around, & whispers* Where do you want me to sleep ?


ThorinII@KingUnderMtn: *Trips tall leather man* I will have you @GratianaL or If this will end in fire … *leaps in front of the brazier grill flames*


Grati@GratianaL:   But my heart can only truly be won by a character of good izu10vodepi1-355RichardArmitageasHarryaskingDawnFrenchasGerrytoMarryhimJun1012ranetcrpbrtcharacter, with true intentions, & love for me in his heart. *I turn to see him*

HarryK@BeTheSpreadsheet: First, I’ll have some wine for liquid courage. Then because I must follow my heart, I say, I’m asking you to marry me, @Gratiana L.

Grati@GratianaL:   Oh @BeTheSpreadsheet! Yes, yes, a 1,000 times yes! Sorry, this isn’t that 2005 P&P period romance. *THUD* I’m a puddle of womanly essence.

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    • Hi Ladysableh, Thanks for your kind note & vote! I’m glad that I made you laugh! And Harry’s twitter handle came from an accountant’s t-shirt I saw online when I was serializing my fan fic, “Dibley Revisited”. Such a giggle! Thanks for visiting and commenting. Cheers! Grati ;->


  2. Oct. 21 & 27, 2014; and Nov. 11, 2016–Thanks for liking this post!

    LOL – oh this is great, Grati. I particularly love the Twitter names. And the clever inclusion of the quotes. You know, you should really start up a few fake Twitter accounts with these. The fandom would be delighted to get daily messages from the chaRActers… Great post!

    • HI guylty,
      Thanks for your lovely note! I’m so glad that you enjoyed my bit of silliness here.
      Giggles about your Twitter suggestion. But a daily thing would be difficult for me–I think I’m as booked up as I can be for now with regard to social media and my writing stories.
      But I could make this kind of “RA Character Twitter Discussion ficlet” a recurring feature here on my blog. The RA characters could “tweet” about the big issues of the day–such as grilled vs crispy, the 3 second rule or not, shower vs freshening, jeans vs leather, and the male view/wishes vs her view/wishes. Ha! Ideas are percolating. Hmmm.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting! Cheers! Grati;->

      P.S. And we already know RA’s take on bodices vs bustles–“bodices please”, he doesn’t like “deformed backsides”. But perhaps we should ask the other fellas. Ha!
