James Rhodes and Benedict Cumberbatch from last night’s Letter Live (source)

Benedict serving Peter Jackson some tea. Such a nice dragon.
Omigosh yessss c: I am so happy. Not only Martin tonight, but Benedict as well. My Lord.
Benny took so much time for interaction with his fans. He did his best to sign everyone’s tokens and take pictures. And I saw a middle finger very very often.
When he came up to us he spotted my drawing of Smaug’s eye and I didn’t even ask anything yet.
Ben: “Wow! Let me just - What is your name?”
Me: “Denise.” *flabbergasted*
Me: “Yeah that’s right.”
He was struggling a bit with getting his name on there properly.
Ben: “I am so sorry, I can’t get my name under it easily, my fingers are freezing. But you must be even more cold.”

Ben: “See, that’s what I mean.”
Me: “Thank you so much! (for signing the drawing :3)”
SO YEAH HE SIGNED MY DRAWING OF SMAUG WITH
And then I asked for a picture and I really wanted the other two girls in the picture too but the photographer didn’t quite understand that unfortunately :((
When he was taking a seperate pic with my neighbour he actually stuck up his middle finger again and I said
"You cheeky thing." And he looked back and smiled before he moved on.
BEN. You are quite something.
