Today’s word was suggested by Brooke.

cRAving: an intense, urgent, or abnormal desire or longing for all things Richard Armitage.*

*It should be noted that this definition has been adapted from Merriam-Webster. I do not think that there is anything abnormal about our cRAvings. 😉


It has been so long since I updated the blog that I kind of forgot about the alphabetized word list. I’ll get on that soon and get it up to date.

Dwarf Desire

Today’s phrase was coined and submitted by Servetus.

Dwarf Desire: What you feel after looking into Thorin’s eyes, whether or not you’re a Hobbit fan …

I imagine this look of rapt attention often accompanies dwarf desire.


Watching for the Plot

This phrase was submitted for Bccmee’s video dictionary project by Capaca. It is frequently used as a tag on Tumblr, most notably on Recycled Vinyl.

Watching for the Plot: Gratuitous appearances of Richard’s body without clothes, which may or may not be integral to the actual plot, but we pretend it is anyway.

Armitage Day

This word was suggested a while ago for entry into The RAD, but I’ve been saving it for today. I’m sorry, I don’t remember who suggested it.

Armitage Day: Also known as Richard Armitage’s birthday, the twenty-second of August.


Pants of Seduction

I saw this on Tumblr today and thought it had to go into The RAD.

Pants of Seduction: If you need a definition, look at the gif below!

ComRAdes and CamaRAderie

This word popped into my head today and seemed appropriate for entry into The RAD. After all, we Armitage fans are called an army! 😉

ComRAdes: Companions who share one’s interest in Richard Armitage.

And because the words go together, today we have a two-for-one special.

So much of being a fangirl is about:

CamaRAderie: Mutual trust and friendship among people who spend a lot of time together (online) because of their shared interest in Richard Armitage.



Today’s word was suggested by Servetus.

RApt: hanging onto the screen for every tweet about Richard Armitage from SDCC.

If you looked like this during Comic Con, you were RApt!



Today’s word comes from Brooke Stevens and is quite appropriate given all the information of late.

RAin: New information about RA after a long drought.



I believe today’s word was coined by FedoraLady, if not feel free not correct me. 🙂

ToC or Tongue of Concentration: The way in which Richard Armitage’s tongue protrudes when he is concentrating deeply.

As seen in the above pictures, this quirk carries over between both varying roles and real life for Mr. Armitage.
