Note from bccmee: I’m still away on my trip and here is a guest blogpost from my sister, love4ot. She gave this to me a few hours before she thought I was departing. Luckily, she had the wrong day, LOL! Despite our teasing, I adore my sister and she’s a great friend to me. Thanks for everything, sis!

My Sis, the RA Man Fan
Unlike my sister, I like to get things done way in advance. This usually means within two hours of the time due.
My sister has had many crushes before, but they were always fleeting – Scott Cohen and Jeffery Dean Morgan to name a few. This obsession, however, is completely different because this guy is hotter than the heat produced when protons collide!
Of course when she initially told me about Richard Armitage I was only thrilled because I love British humor and The Vicar of Dibley was one of my favorite shows. I had not seen those last ones when RA was introduced so I got to watch them one evening on Netflix. I thought what a cutie and a funny actor. When she showed RA as John Thornton in North and South, I thought that this guy was a really talented actor. That’s about as far as it went for me.
Now I am able to recognize him in a crowd and hear him croon in my dreams. Not a bad transition for an onlooker so I cannot imagine what goes on in the head of a serious fan! I can also assess when RA will look good, such as a dwarf in The Hobbit. As soon as Bcc told me he was the leader of the dwarves, Thorin, I knew that a dwarf would be added to the ranks of hottie – something that has never happened in the fantasy fiction world as far as I know (I told you so, sis).
There are actually deep aspects of my relationship with my sister besides RA as John Porter, Guy (as we know, not her overall favorite), and Lucas. She has been with me through thick and thin as I attended graduate school and parent twin teenagers which is a feat that I am not sure how I made it through. Without her constant cheerleading and listening I never would have made it through in one piece! I can thank her now that I know I have a great future ahead of me and I am happy to let her know that I will graduate with honors.
It continues to be a great time spending long hours watching her videos and looking at siggies and avatars (and not those blue things). Overall, when she asked if I would be interested in writing a little something special for her blog, I answered her as I usually do and with a very committed tone – sure, maybe, ah, let me think about it. Then I never really get back to her… It’s the way I show her I really care mostly about me.
