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. 😉

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.

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.


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.

Today’ word–coined by Mersguy– is another one of the submissions for bccmee’s collaborative dictionary.

Armitaged: The moment one falls for the many charms of Richard Armitage.

After reading the TORn staff’s analysis of the recent Hobbit pictures, I can’t help but wonder how many people will soon be Armitaged.

MrCere: “How many great actors can you fit in a single frame? People think this cast is really good but it’s better than people realize.”

MrCere: “…Let me go on record again and say that Richard Armitage is going to be a gigantic star when these two movies are over.”

Garfeimao: “… I just gotta say it, this is the epitome of hot dwarf, no two ways about that.”

Seems to me a few members of the TORn staff may have already succumb.
