Armitage in New York City

Glamour-23I particularly like this photo shoot. I work in the Tribeca area of New York City, and I see buildings and views like those in these pictures every (work) day. Gives me a reason to think about Richard Armitage every day – as if I needed a reason!

A Fantasy of Richard Armitage in New York City

Another day of work. I walk from Canal Street to my office, passing the Tribeca Grand Hotel.


Get a coffee and go up to my office. Put on the computer. Look through my emails. Staff starts to come in. The day begins.

11:00 – a phone call. My secretary buzzes the intercom. “It’s a personal phone call. Richard Armitage’s assistant.” Ha ha. “Thanks”, I tell her. Punch the button. “Hello?” “Hello, is this Ms. Astra?”

“Yes, who’s calling?”, I say. “Hi, Ms. Astra, I’m Laura, Mr. Richard Armitage’s assistant. You know who Mr. Armitage is, right?”, a woman with a British accent says.  “Of course, but…” , I say. “Mr. Armitage asked me to call you to see if you would be willing to meet with him to discuss labor relations. He has been offered a part in a film where he would play a union leader and he remembered that you had written to him and that you were a labor relations director. He is wondering if you would be willing to meet him to give him some background information about labor relations in the U.S.?”, she says. “Whot??”, I say. “This is a joke, isn’t it? Who is this??”, I say. “My name is Laura, and I REALLY am Richard Armitage’s assistant, although I know that it may be hard to believe!”, she laughs. “Mr. Armitage would like to know if you can meet him at the Tribeca Grand at noon today. I think it is not far from your place of work?” “Well, sure I could meet him, I guess.”, I say, hesitatingly. “Great! I’ll meet you at the front desk at noon, then?”, she says. “Well, ok, sure, why not? How weird is this??”, I say. “I know”, she says, “but don’t worry it will be fine. He’s a very nice man, and won’t take up too much of your time.” “OK”, I say, rolling my eyes, “we’ll see about that!”

      HaHa! Yes that’s me, expert. The Tribeca Grand Hotel is very inspirational for fantasy. It just fits in so well with those NYC pictures. It’s just a couple of blocks from where he shot the Fault Magazine pics too. Almost makes me feel like writing fan fiction. LOL!

    Niceeeeeeeee – just imagine. Ha, I guess you just DID. But now, Marie, I desperately need to know how the fantasy continues. – And before you know it, you have written your first RPF *muhahahaha*. The dark side has called you over.
