Having a Moment Over Here (or I’ll Have What She’s Having)

Richard Armitage has engendered all sorts of feelings, and many fans have spilled a lot of ink, as it were, over the phenomenon of these visceral reactions he provokes in us. May I say sincerely that the eloquence of some of you has moved me to the point of tears at times. I’m not kidding when I say that. Some of you have captured the feelings so well! But I love how this word sums it up.

Certainly, there are nostrilgasms and femurgasms and lots of other gasms going on, but they all lead to the Big One. :D

Some of you are thinking I’m nuts right now. You have read the “About” page of this blog haven’t you? Then you shouldn’t be surprised by this.

Back to business. I’ve been planning this post for almost two years and was going to sit on it a little longer, but I witnessed another Armigasm today, and I had to say something. Oh, you still don’t know what that is? Well, it’s when a fan is so overcome by thoughts of Richard, that they gush. I mean they gush and gush and gush and they can’t stop and don’t care who is nearby and they feel good when they’re done but also a little vulnerable. Totally natural.

I witnessed a few more of these later in the day, but hey, that’s all part and parcel of being a Richard Armitage fan. :D

And I hope everyone is lightened up about this and gets a chuckle out of the word that’s now in the lexicon.

My friend Pam at Meryton.com’s forum which is known as A Happy Assembly (or Aha. Indeed :D), gets the honors for coining Armigasm. And to get in on the hotbed of activity with all those Austen fans and maybe join the Order of the Cotton Drawers, you have to register over there.

note: I would link to the blogger whose writing prompted this post, but I’m not entirely sure she’s ready for that. She may need a day or two to recover. LOL!


  1. I definitely have had many ARMIGASMs recently… one might almost say it’s ARMIGEDDON.

    Mightn’t one?

  2. […] So many of my fellow Armitage bloggers have been having knicker-dropping moments recently with the upcoming publicity for the Decimation/Desperation/Desecration of Smaug***, and one of them coined the genius word “Armigasm” (see post about this here: https://rafrenzy.com/2013/10/06/having-a-moment-over-here-or-ill-have-what-shes-having/#comment-95917).  […]

  3. On Tumblr, most people post their Armigasms anonymously, where they end up being reposted, such as here – richardarmitageconfessions.tumblr.com

    Often they are quite bold and take my breath away for a moment. (And maybe I blush, I don’t recall – but they ARE blush-worthy.) So then, when it happens, I think “Good for you”. Because so often I will think it, but certainly not say it.

  4. Christine, LOL! Yeah.

    Crystal, I hear you, but I think of Richard Armitage Confessions as what they’re called — confessions. An Armigasm goes way beyond a mere confession. It renders someone free of any circumspection or I should say liberates a person from inhibitions, so there is no need to gush anonymously. A fine distinction, but a distinction nonetheless. :D

  5. I’m all for Armigetting it on!

  6. Armigasm–I love it!

  7. […] Armigasm? […]
