Sexy SatuRdAy! To Richard Armitage Sir Guy with Love! With Thanks to @NellinDreams and Kudos to Mabelalexa Tumblr, May 16, 2015 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #747)

As you know, I am quite fond of the exquisitely talented British Actor Richard Armitage’s 2014--AllFilm-article-andRichardArmitage_May1615PortraitbySarahDunnPhotography-crop-sized[portrait by Sarah Dunn in 2014, right]–I should just start abbreviating that as TETBARA, Ha!– character of Sir Guy of Gisborne.

Heck! I have a trilogy of stories built around him–Sir Guy that is–with Book 3 “Sir Guy’s Atonement” that I’m currently serializing. And I have an unrelated to that story line Sir Guy short story that I had excerpted here a while back that I have now finished and am waiting until the first trilogy ends to serialize it–but after a few of my contemporary era stories are serialized.

But I was not always as enamored of the tall dark man in leather, Sir Guy. Shocker! I warmed up to him and his angsty endearing hopeful storyline. Yes, hopeful. Sir Guy wanted to be a better man–and in the end, he was. I was hooked. Hey, I watched the whole series of 39 episodes via iTunes episode rentals–that is true dedication since the download took forever each time. I didn’t have DSL back then, just dial up.

Then I bought the Robin Hood boxed set of all three years of the series and I was a very happy Fangirl. Links for Richard Armitage film and television, and audiobook dvds/cds are available here via’s (RANet) Amazon affiliate link.   And what is an added benefit when you buy through RANet’s Amazon link, the commissions that RANet earns are all donated to one of Richard Armitage’s sponsored charities. So you are helping out a good cause.

And though my first Richard Armitage character love was Richard Armitage’s John Thornton in North & South (BBC 2004) when I first experienced it in February 2010, I have come around to Sir Guy. Oh Dearies, I’m all in! Ha!

We can never get enough Sir Guy–nor Richard Armitage–right ladies? And I just saw 2009--SexySmileRichardArmitage-asSirGuyofGisborne_May1515mabelalexa-tumblr-viaNellindreamsTweet-sized@NellinDreams tweet (Thanks!) of this stunning Mabelalexa tumblr image of Richard Armitage as Sir Guy of Gisborne [right]. Sighhh!

Guy/Richard in 2009’s Robin Hood series 3 is gorgeous in this portrait! Hair you can run your fingers through, brightly shining blue eyes, Roman nose you would love to nuzzle, chiseled jaw with stubble, and a hint of muscular neckage underneath his leather jacket, waiting to be nibbled. Sighhhh! He is beautiful–the epitome of male handsomeness!

And the talented Mabelalexa shares more than just Richard Armitage’s Guy character portrait edits on her tumblr. There are John Porter and John Thornton images, too. And many others–stills and gifs. *Grati smiles gleefully*

So take a gander here at Mabelalexa’s Tumblr archive page and enjoy!

Hope you have a gReAt weekend! Cheers!   Grati ;->

P.S. I usually try to leave at least two days between posts. But this Richard Armitage as Guy portrait by Mabelalexa just grabbed me. If only. Ha! So I had to share.

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

    For some Guy is a bit of an acquired taste, but he’s really irresistible in that picture… Oh, and mabelalexa’s tumblr is a true treasure trove!

    • Hi Guylty,
      I think you may be right about Sir Guy. The first few episodes in Robin hood Series one, Guy was quite despicable. And Episode 4 Parenthood where Guy supposed left his son born of the kitchen maid in the woods to die? That seemed beyond the pale–to have been Guy’s doing. So in my “Guy’s Rose” story, I blamed that on Sheriff Vasey. Ha!
      Thanks for visiting and commenting! Cheers! Grati ;->


      • Guylty says:

        Yeah, they didn’t really seem to know what to do with Sir Guy – and maybe they also copped on that the actor was providing quite an attraction in the series – and changed things around. I always hated the storyline about the baby left in the woods, just didn’t seem congruous.

  3. May 17, 2015–Dear Readers,
    Just a quick mention that Dear Guylty at her Guylty Pleasure blog is hosting an auction of three of her RA Pocket Shrines (RAPS) for charity to raise funds for Nepal Earthquake relief.

    What is an “RA Pocket Shrine” you may ask? They are sublime artistic cReAtions of hers that you may tuck into your pocket–or purse–to pop open and admire Mr. A. She has oodles of designs, all original–I think she has made over 75 RAPS at this point.

    You may find more information here about Guylty’s RAPS and her charity auction:

    Cheers! Grati ;->

    P.S. And here is a pix of one of the RAPS she is auctioning off. I am so bidding on this one. Ha!
