PortEmber Challenge

It’s the middle of November and here in New York City, the cold is settling in.  Therefore it’s time for some hot John Porter to the rescue!

Call me cRAy-cRAy, but I’m doing yet another challenge!  This one is reserved for my favorite Richard Armitage character of all time.  Can you guess who?  Yes, it’s John Porter.  ♥  Welcome to  PortEmber!

Wet John Porter

Picture of the Day at RichardArmitageNet.Com - 14 November

By the way, if you haven’t seen the video from which this screencap is made, do yourself a favor and head over to the Strike Back Downloads page on RichardArmitageNet.Com and scroll down to the heading Sky HD advert featuring John Porter. You won’t regret it! 😀 😛

For the final 14 days of November, from the 17th through the 30th, I am going to create something based on your choices of John Porter screencaps.

The guidelines are very similar to our previous challenges.  Please follow these guidelines carefully.

1. Send me a screencap of John Porter from Chris Ryan’s Strike Back.  It can be a screencap you’ve made yourself or one from  RichardArmitageNet.Com.

2. Suggest some text or a humorous caption. If I make an animated gif or graphic, it might be used in conjunction with your screencap.

3. Submit your screencap link either as a comment below or through the Contact bccmee form. If you use the contact form, please also add a comment — it does not need to include any details about your screencap or scene, but it’s so that others know you have submitted something and everyone can keep track.  Also, if there is a technical difficulty and your contact form submission does not come through, your comment will serve as your placeholder.

4. If you have submitted a proposal for the 12 Days of Guyness, please wait until the 16th to send in your John Porter suggestion if there are any spaces left.  This will give more people a chance to participate!  Thanks for your understanding.  🙂

Remember, there are only 14 days of PortEmber which means only 14 of you can collaborate on this challenge, so please hurry!

Here’s a new animated gif I created to kick off the challenge.

Richard Armitage as John Porter

John Porter looked “super hot” so I decided to supply him with a pair of sunglasses! 😎

This 14-day John Porter challenge is certainly a dream come true for me, LOL!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I will.

By the way, I will not be online much today,  so you may not get any response from me until tomorrow. 😛

Look for The 12 Days of Guyness to start on 1 December 2011.

As a bonus, here is an animated gif created by Ania after completing the recent tutorial.  Let’s hope it’s the first of many!

Thanks for your kind permission to share your graphic, Ania. It’s very lovely. *sigh*

    Aha! JP!
    I was just about to call it a day and go to sleep when I saw this. I’ve sent in my submission for the challenge. Nite!

  2. Antonia Romera says:

    I had my turn in Guyness challenge so I won‘t suggest for that but I love it. I love the John Porter gif but this you has frightened. I saw JP breathing. Mind things I know *laughing*
    Thanks for your gif too, Ania. I couldn‘t follow the tutorial last week but I‘m going to do it now . I let you know the results. 😉

  3. So you decided to give yourself (and us) a wonderful present!
    Happy birthday BCC!! Volcanic, creative lady.
    Thank you very much for this surprise

  4. April says:

    I love these John and Guy gifs ! 🙂

  5. cdoart says:

    What a wonderful Porter-Birthday idea, bccmee. Have a wonderful day and enjoy lots of Porter, birthday cake and a wonderful day!!! Thank you for letting us share your birthday present ;o)
    I stand back with Porter-wishes. With John Porter I would not be able to decide anyway, all three episodes at once, by any chance? ;o)

    • bccmee says:

      @cdoart: I’m so grateful for all your support and efforts in the Richard Armitage community! I’m also delighted you are participating in The 12 Days of Guyness!

      Thanks very much for your lovely birthday sentiments!

    Hi Bccmee,

    How lovely to have another gif challenge! I love how Richard Armitage smoulders sensually in his various character portrayals–none more so than with John Porter.

    So, I propose you use the following image from SB1 epi5, pix 35 on RANet (the URL is below) as a starting point for that. Perhaps the text could read: “Love, Got a pillow? Fancy a ‘nap’?”

    I know, I’m saucy. But, JP is a lovely way to brighten anyone’s morning.

    Cheers! Grati
    P.S. Happy Birthday!


    • bccmee says:

      @Gratiana: I appreciate your enthusiasm! If there are not enough requests from those who haven’t joined the 12 Days of Guyness, feel free to re-submit this at a later date.

      As I joked with you earlier, when faced with a wet John Porter, I lose all sense of reading comprehension myself, LOL! *HUGS* and thanks for all your ongoing support and your lovely birthday messages. I appreciate them very much!

  7. jules says:

    Wishing you all my love and very best wishes for your birthday ‘B’ … I wish I could wrap up John Porter …. tie him up in a great big ribbon and let you undo him….oh stop…I’m all undone now!!! Luv Jules

    • bccmee says:

      @jules: LOL! Thanks for the birthday wishes. By the way, I see that you have not signed up for the 12 Days of Guyness so please feel free to collaborate on PortEmber! 😀

      • jules says:

        Hi ‘B’ missed the chance to submit for 12 Days of Guyness…Have submitted for PortEmber, will keep my fingers crossed. By the way I have just spent the past few days watching our gorgeous John Porter due to your earlier comments that you never saw him eat anything during the whole 6 episodes…I felt it my duty to check this out!!! Giggles you were so right how on earth did he keep his stamina up, bet he would have loved some of Lucas’s fish and chips and donuts mmmmmmm

        • bccmee says:

          @jules: I received your message and just sent one back to you. 🙂

          Good job on the research. Poor John Porter does need to be fed! We can take turns. 😉

  8. Ana Cris says:

    Happy Birthday, Bcc. May your dreams come true.

  9. April says:

    I wish you a happy birthday Bccmee ! 🙂

  10. Ania says:

    Happy Birthday Bccmee! I wish you to all your dreams come true. ♥
    It’s so great that you give us another dose of your creativity in the next great challenge. 🙂
    And definitely John Porter looks super hot. LOL!
    thanks for putting my gif as a bonus 🙂

    • bccmee says:

      @Ania: Thank you for the lovely birthday greetings! And I appreciate you sharing your beautiful Guy animation. Please let us know if and when you create any more!

  11. jazzbaby1 says:

    Happy birthday, girlfriend! You spend it whatever way your cRAy-cRAy little heart desires!

  12. I loved see J.Porter all wet and that sunglass was very appropriated.
    I also think that poor man needed a sunblock , just to do not damage even more his beautiful skin.
    How imaginative are you,Bccmee!I wonder what will come next! If you can put him a sunglass, you can take him off anything else? Who knows! LOL!
    Happy Birthday bccmme and enjoy this Special Day !

    • bccmee says:

      @Tereza: LOL re: the sunblock! Too true. A friend and I were talking last night and she suggested that John Porter would’ve been sunburned to a crisp if he was actually tied up and left in the sun as he was in the final story.

      Thanks for the birthday wishes!

      Do you have a John Porter request? There are still several openings. 🙂

  13. Nimue says:

    Happy birthday, bccmee! Thanks for all your wonderful fan-art ! BTW- did you know that you share your birthday with Claude Monet 😉 ?

  14. Lady Prisca says:

    Happy birthday Bccmee!
    Great idea this challenge. I’ve sent you some idea by pm.

  15. love4ot says:

    Happy Birthday 🙂

  16. tyme4t says:

    Happy BiRthdAy!

    Submitted my suggestion via email!

  17. hainaut says:

    Happy Birthday Bccmee!
    So excited to see your name and your choice of POD!
    You have been so generous with your talents and I hope one day/decade to ever be able to follow your tutorials!
    I rationalize that it is imperative to practise these new skills on RA material *ahem* as pretty soon my four year old wants/expects mummy to help her make:
    “a picture story that moves just how I like it of a story I make up but boy on the train will be in it mummy I like his yellow flower can we have the nice music please?”
    Hmm, would that be fan-vidding/gifs at age four?
    Can I send her to “B’s school for tech-savvy creative kids” ?
    You really have given a lot of enjoyment to this lurker and I wish you a sincerely wonderful year!

    • bccmee says:

      @hainaut: Aw thanks so much for your kind thoughts! *HUGS*

      Perhaps you and your four-year-old can collaborate on a project. The results would be lovely and creative I’m sure. It would be a blast to show a tech-savvy kid some cool things to do! However, I do not have the facilities for a boarding school, LOL!

      If you like, I have some openings in the current John Porter PortEmber challenge at the moment. 🙂

  18. judiang says:

    I don’t have a Porter pic, but Happy birthday bccmee!

  19. bccmee says:

    Thanks everyone for your lovely scene recommendations through the comments and the contact bccmee form! I will respond to them soon. 🙂

    Also, I appreciate all the birthday wishes! It’s just past midnight as I write this so my birthday is officially over but the festivities will continue throughout the month, LOL!

    Although I haven’t counted them up, I believe there is space for some more recommendations.


  20. Sorry, a delayed birthday wishes from me!

    What a wonderful idea this PortEmber Challenge is! Cant’t wait!!

    • bccmee says:

      @grendel’s mum: Thank you again for all your support and for keeping up with all the news of Richard Armitage and The Hobbit on your Japanese-language blog! You are providing a great service. I notice that you are now linked from RichardArmitageNet.Com! Congratulations!

      Please let me know if you have any scene suggestions for the John Porter PortEmber challenge. 🙂

      • grendel's mum says:

        Wow, thanks so much for letting me know! I feel very much honoured, indeed!

        As for the scene suggestions: hmm I must re-watch Strike Back! (^_-)-☆

  21. itsjsforme says:

    Bcc, ….I sent my request via the contact form. 🙂

  22. How much fun!! I leave the contest up to the professionals, lol 🙂
    Love the picture with the sunglasses. I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday -I have been thinking of you and had three slices of the virtual bday-cake.
