I don’t usually reblog things with language, but this has such valid and important points.

Ana’s been naked for like 60% of this series and suddenly taking her shirt off is “beyond courageous”? I assume because she’s pulling it off herself and not letting Christian do it for her. Way to not get stuck in the armholes, girl!! I’m impressed.

This writing is so bad, I cannot.

I don’t even know where to begin.

For those of you who are just tuning into me, I wrote letters to all of The Hobbit cast when I went to visit them on my Make-a-Wish. I had gotten a response from the actor who plays “Oin” just a few weeks ago. Just now, I was sitting on my floor making cancer ribbons to put on our Marching Band uniforms, and my Aunt walks in with a letter/package from Sebastian; Peter Jackson’s assistant. 

I open it, and my heart literally jumped into my throat. It was from my biggest idol, Richard Armitage. 

He wrote a pretty lengthy (and most educated) letter. It was heartfelt, and you can tell that he loves his job and takes it very seriously. In the letter it says:

I am enclosing some of Thorin’s chain mail to keep you ‘strong’.


He also included the name of the flute piece we were discussing (meaning he remembers our conversation…I am so happy). 

I am speechless…this was so kind of him. I am beyond words. All I can say is, I am so proud to be in the Armitage Army. 

I can’t read it, but wow!

For anyone who can’t read the letter, you may now benefit from my autistic ability to understand almost anything vaguely resembling handwriting:

Dear Samantha,

Thank you for your letter. It was so lovely to meet you and your family. I hope you had a great day. Pete gave me your letter on the day that we were filming Thorin’s death scene (I hope I haven’t spoiled the story). It’s always difficult to make truthful something which we see a lot in movies but in life, not so much. I wanted Thorin to be at peace and full of love when he died. The scene was about asking for Bilbo’s forgiveness. The first line he spoke was,
"If more people valued home than gold, the world would be a merrier place."

I believe that to be true.

I am enclosing some of Thorin’s chain mail to keep you ‘strong’ and a photo of Thorin in Thranduil’s prison cell; he was about to say:
"Not our only hope…"
with regards to Bilbo who will help them escape.

I hope you will keep strong and courage to escape [the same way?]

With lots of love,

Richard

P.S. The flute piece is:

Chopin Flute Variations on a
theme by Rossini

You will enjoy playing it. (google it!!)

I hope you don’t mind me typing it out so others can read it. :)
