(added a third gif btw.) I keep meaning to watch that show, lol_meme back in the day was so into it, everyone tells me it’d murder me with my favorite tropes, and I mean I see gifsets like this and I just die, but somehow I’ve never gotten around to it. One of these days…
Hey, RA was only about 35-38 during the filming of the BBC Robin Hood, y’know. Still a bit old for Sandor’s 27-30 during the books, but for visual adaptation that difference barely matters, especially when it’s hot-as-hell Richard Armitage for goodness sake. ;)

She is afraid I shall speak what will require some stern repression. Let her go. Beauty and heiress as she may be, she will find it hard to meet with a truer heart than mine. Let her go!” And there was no tone of regret, or emotion of any kind in the voice with which he said good-bye; and the offered hand was taken with a resolute calmness, and dropped as carelessly as if it had been a dead and withered flower.
