October animated gif challenge – day 26

Guess who? It’s Richard Armitage as Guy of Gisborne yet again for a return visit in today’s animated gif. He’s the most sought after character this month!

Our scene selection comes to us from NovemberBride.

NovemberBride wrote: “Looking at the season 1 episode 13, Marian and Guy are in constant circular motion, he circles around her telling her to be careful who she listens to, etc…. and ends with Guy spinning in a full circle as he sits down and throws his lovely head back with a huge sigh of relief.”

For the caption, our guest designer said, “First song I thought of was Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire’ … ‘I fell in to a burning ring of fire. I went down, down, down and the flames went higher…’

That scene is truly a visual treat! So I used the latter part with Guy spinning and sitting down and the caption “Ring of Fire.”  Thanks bunches for your fantastic selection and song to play along with it, NovemberBride!

Here is your animated gif:

    Swoon… swoon… swoon.. and thud, LOL.

    Thanks for this sexy gif Bccmee. 🙂

  2. Nice! I love the sigh. Like ‘what’s that woman THINKING?!’ 😛 Poor Guy, he was in way over his head with her…

  3. Elaine says:

    I swear you can almost hear him let out a large sigh of frustration and exasperation – you can feel the tension. Feel ….. what a lovely word when thinking of Guy. Feel the leather, feel the heat!

  4. IngeD3 says:

    Hot indeed… *sigh*
    Another masterpiece, B!

  5. My Guydness!!!!!!!!!!!! HOT HOT, to say the least. Sigh, swoon, and swoon again.
    Thank you both!

    I love that scene! Thanks to both of you for the great gif!

    Hi BccMee!
    Another lovely gif! And Richard is so “Guy-li-cious”!
    Guy Darlin, forget that fickle Marian. There are a world of women who would help you forget her. Ha!
    Cheers! Grati ;->

    • Lady Prisca says:

      It seems that men love the hard to live women. The good girls like us who can enjoy them , are not so attractive. L.O.L.

    • bccmee says:

      @Gratiana: I love the new vocabulary that comes along with Guy as played by RA. 😀

      I totally agree that there would be plenty of women willing to take Marian’s place.

  8. Alfie says:

    Another pirouette – that Richard Armitage knows his ballet 🙂

    Yes he is Hot – and that is why he is the most sought after character this month!
    Hot hot gif – *BURN*

    • bccmee says:

      @Alfie: Well-said! He has a way of moving his body that is sheer art! 😛

      • Gratiana says:

        Hi Bccmee,

        That is so true–Richard’s physicality “is sheer art!” Richard as Guy–or Lucas, or any of his character portrayals for that matter–is pure poetry in motion.

        So I say, “Guy Dear, come on over and give me a stanza or two. I’m not a-verse to your charms.” Ha!

        Cheers! Grati ;->
        P.S. To explain my “pun” for non-native English speakers, “verse” is another word for poetry. And, a stanza is a section of a poem, similar to a paragraph.

    okay ladies I feel a song coming on…altogether now…”no muscle bound man could take my hand from MY GUY…no handsome face could ever take the place of MY GUY…he may not be a movie star but when it comes to being happy…WE ARE…there’s not a man today who could take me away from MY GUY…ooooo that sounded great maybe another verse later!!!

    • bccmee says:

      @jules: Hahaha! Yes, now that we’ve all got that song stuck in our heads, it may push out “Ring of Fire.” Or perhaps the songs will combine to form a mashup. 😉

  10. jazzbaby1 says:

    Supposedly Johnny Cash had a toilet seat that played “Ring of Fire” when you put it down. Great work!

  11. Lady Prisca says:

    Very good choice NovemberBride. I love this scene too , when Marian accept to marry him and he react in a so sexy way. As Elaine says : we can feel the tension and I love absolutely that. Some of us would’nt let him be so frustrated but Marian have never taken her chance (blind maid? Stupid girl? or story writen by men who don’t understand anything about women? L.O.L.).
    Great work as always Bccmee , thank you.

    • Teuchter says:

      Agree wholeheartedly with your comment, Lady Prisca! Great choice NB and a fantastic gif once again. 🙂 But another thought just came to me. I wonder if we are giving the writers enough credit in this case. If you watch the DVD extras and listen to what Dom and Foz said about Guy, something to the effect that in their minds, Marion is “stirred by him in our heads – and who wouldn’t be? He’s great!” Also as the season progressed they must have become aware of the stir Guy was creating and that probably more women ended up watching – maybe even a lot more – than the pre-teen and teenage boys the show was meant to target initially!! From the start they maybe didn’t count on the impact his character would have on women. Francis Temple obviously latched on to it when she designed Guy’s costumes the way she did and I believe she said that Robin was supposed to be the main male in the show.”but because of the casting, it didn’t turn out like that!!” D’ya think?? Robin’s boyishness was no match for sexy leather-clad Guy, that’s for sure!!

      • bccmee says:

        @Teuchter: Great quote by the costume designer! I think she did excellent work. She only neglected to put a large caution label on Guy to warn of us his hotness. 😉

        • April says:

          When I discovered Richard in “Robin Hood”, my reaction was : Woooow !!! What’s THAT ??? And after : swoon and thud, LOL.

    • bccmee says:

      @Lady Prisca: I think you’re right of course. Marian should’ve married Guy but of course that would be very contrary to the legend. Oh, but what a show if they’d married! I would totally tune into that program for years to come, LOL!

      • Lady Prisca says:

        I know that at this moment of the story it was too earlier for this marriage to be successful, but marriage is not the one option. L.O.L. . Some kisses and sweet words and sexy moments would have been of good taste before feelings grow between them. I’ve got the “good” story in my mind. L.O.L.

  12. NovemberBride says:

    LOL!! “men who don’t understand anthing about women”…I’m thinking you nailed it Lady P!!!! I was holding my breath during that entire scene…”what was Marian going to say/ask?” “How was Guy going to react?” “what would HE say in response?” “Would he just grab her and run?” “Would she take one look at him and run?” So many possibilities. And he just does that frustrated/relieved pirouette (thanks for the ballet reference, Alfie!). He knows he didn’t tell her the whole truth but she believes him…and that is her final answer. Yay! Let’s plan a wedding. Or not. sigh.

    • bccmee says:

      @NovemberBride: Again, my thanks for such great scene and caption selections! 😀

      That was a very exciting turn of events. Would she or wouldn’t she accept? Of course we know that she couldn’t go through with the wedding but they sure waited till the last possible second to thwart it! So at least we had a wedding sequence. It just didn’t reach completion. At least we have enough fodder for graphics, fanvids and fanfic. 😉

  13. Summer says:

    Woohoo Glad someone suggested that scene, it’s one of my Guy’s favourites! Don’t feel so bad now for not asking LOL
    Fantastic gif Love it 🙂

  14. Marian, Sherry, Robin: three constant sources of frustration for Guy in S1 and S2.
    I imagine the poor dear sitting down, looking above with a deep sigh EVERY single evening……
    Great choice of scene and …. must say Guy’s fandom is very active this month. Excellent!

  15. Joanna says:

    Although I’m full of lust(Oh My Guy!)I understand Marian very well:D
    If Guy has won Marian hand he would’t have been nice and sophisticated at all:)
    Hot gif Bccmee! Love it NovemberBride!

    • bccmee says:

      @Joanna: I’m sure Guy was not good husband material, but he sure looked amazing. ♥ However, I do believe he truly loved Marian and would have protected her if she had returned his love. But of course, that’s not how the story goes!

  16. Teuchter says:

    A little PS if you’ll permit me. Before Guy does his pirouette, when Marion leaves and he lifts his head a bit and turns away, isn’t there just a tiny hint of tongue action there – or is that just wishful thinking on my part?? 😉

  17. Oh my Guy! This is absolutely one of your BEST GIFs, B! I love it because when Guy/Richard breathes it’s sooo sexy!

  18. mersguy says:

    Sir Hotness strikes again and TOC (tongue of concentration) it’s almost too much. Sir Guy is pure lust…..just want to nibble that delightful tongue…..HOT HOT HOT!!!
    Thanks B and NovemberBride – we are coming to the end of the month Bccmmee any thoughts for a special gif month in December?? well it is the gif(t) giving season!!

  19. I only remember this scene by Guy’s sexy exposed neck, but yes, this spinning movement is also very sexy! And what an apt text, too! Gorgeous!

  20. Ana Cris says:

    Hi Bcc,
    It was from the discussion about to the fire element in the personality of Guy of Gisborne , in blog of Gratiana, that was born the idea of ​​writing my blog. ;0)

  21. Pamela says:

    This gif is a masterpiece as is the man himself! Thanks again, Bccmee 🙂
