I went to work and you had fannibal appreciation day without me

So I could not prepare. 

In short - I appreciate all of you (us). Each and every one of you (us).

I want to give a special shout out to everyone who isn’t “active” in the recognized ways - making gifs and art and fic and crack and meta and breaking news and let’s go vote and all the “profile” things. 

You are the real lifeblood of the fandom. And thank you for constantly reminding me, through liking posts, and reblogging, and sending asks, and voting for all the things, that I am not alone in loving this critically acclaimed but ratings poor show. It makes it less painful when I quote the show at work and get blank stares. 

And we together are the reason that when the time is right, we’ll get season 4 (and beyond!), and it will be AMAZING. 

Just some personal thoughts on RA:
There are many attractive male celebrities out there who seem so capable of stealing women’s hearts; however, it is a rare gift for them to make people truly respect and support the person with sustained intensity over many years. Having said that, I think it is safe to say that Richard Armitage is someone who does not seem to lose charm but rather makes you crave him more and more. He is someone you will fall in love with again and again even if you might stay away at times. He’s like a lifetime lover rather than a quick crush. It’s been less than a year since I got to know of this amazing creation called RA, but let me say this to RA: I am your fan and I think I am here to stay for a very, very long time.
