THUD Thursday:  Richard Armitage Style,  July 13, 2017  Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1076)

I am a woman of a certain age and of certain sensibilities—of the Jane Austen variety.  I like my male romantic leads in stories that I read—and that I write—to be:

  1. effortlessly handsome yet not narcissistic about his appearance;

    as Harry Kennedy in “The Vicar of Dibley”, 2006
  2. smoulderingly stubborn, in that he has not been swayed to change the way that he lives his life … yet;

    as Sir Guy of Gisborne in “Robin Hood”, 2009
  3. gentlemanly to a fault, despite his underlying passions that threaten to erupt at any moment (oh goody!);

    as John Thornton in “North & South”, 2004
  4. employing his skills and talents toward a lofty purpose, though often misunderstood;

    as Lucas North in “Spooks”, 2009
  5. and, seemingly unattainable, because every woman loves a challenge;

    as John Porter in “Chris Ryan’s Strike Back”, 2010 (original)

So whenever I think of the endlessly talented British actor Richard Armitage in one of his many character incarnations—or even as just himself—I am inspired to reflect upon and paraphrase dear Jane Austen:

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a” large fan following, we “take an eager interest” in his next character portrayal.

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
