FanstRAvaganza 2 is here.  It’s STARTING.

You know what that means.  It’s time to stop beating around the bush and be frank.  Yes, I have a confession to make – about a really guilty pleasure.

It’s not about food, or sex or even a good book.  No, it’s nothing as benign as that.  It’s so wrong, I can barely say it.

I am crazy about Sir Guy of Gisborne. 

This guy.

Yes, despite  John Thornton, Harry Kennedy or even Lucas North (don’t get me started on that one), it’s this character of all Richard Armitage’s portrayals that I adore the most. No matter he’s a murderous henchman who cold bloodedly kills people onscreen and countless others offscreen.   He sadistically tortures villagers.  He woos the maiden he obsessively loves by burning down her house and attempts to blackmail her into marriage by threatening her father’s safety at every turn.  He’s locked in a bizarre unholy love/hate alliance with a scheming madman of a Sheriff that defies Freudian analysis.   He’s deaf and blind to certain machinations around him and isn’t the sharpest sword in the rack.  He flies into a blind rage and runs through his scheming sweetie (see what I mean).  Finally he redeems himself against all odds and dies a heroic bloody death.   Until then, he’s the most unchivalrous, chauvanistic 12th century black knight brutishness can buy.

In case you missed who I'm talking about.

But hey, he’s good looking and hot in black leather, so it’s all good, right? 

Seriously, this guy right here.

My inner feminist just squeaked in horror and fainted dead away.  Oh, maybe not?  Should I be appalled with myself?  Am I being – shallow?  What would momma say?  So, for FansRAvaganza, I will explore the reasons why I hate to love this bad boy and why this character is so compelling.  Yes, I”m talking All Guy All The Time and I will be joined by some of the best Guy experts in the field.  One aficianado, who you all know well, will join me to sort things out in an evocative interview.  Another Guy lover has graciously provided a wonderful slideshow for your consideration. There will be lots of pretty, pretty pictures, and a few polls.   Festivities with conclude with a very special surprise, so stay tuned.

     I’m taking a break from navel gazing to ask for help.  As you may have heard around the blogs, FanstRAvaganza is coming in less than three weeks.  I’ve settled on the ultimate bad boy, Guy of Gisborne as a topic.  Yes, for eight straight days, I’m talking all Guy, all the time.

    Here’s where you come in:  I would like some victims volunteers willing to be interviewed regarding why this character is their favorite.  The interview can be as light-hearted or I can dredge your deepest soul as serious as you like.  You can even be anonymous if you feel shy.   So if you love, love, LOVE Sir Guy to bits, I need to talk to you.  The contact tab is located at the top of the page.   Just click it.

    C’mon, you know you want to.

    Sir Guy would approve; richardarmitagenet.com
