The “Who Is Lizzie’s Father” Contest!

Now who doesn’t love a good contest? I know I do. And now is the perfect time to introduce our next event - The Who Is Lizzie’s Father Contest! The audience is going wild right now:

Originally posted by allreactions

So here is how it works. We have several contestants vying for “Who is Lizzie’s Father”. Let’s begin by introducing them.

Our first contestant is Alexander Kirk, aka Constantin Rostov (and yes he really is only one person). Turn-ons include kidnapping family members and making billions of dollars. Turn-offs include hearing that Raymond “Red” Reddington is still alive. Please welcome Alexander!

Our next contestant is the aforementioned Raymond “Red” Reddington, also known as the “Concierge of Crime”. Turn-ons include using flip-phones, sleeping in other people’s houses, and getting stabbed in the neck with pens. Turn-offs include not being able to kill Tom / Jacob / Christopher / What’s his name (yes this is really only one person). Please welcome Raymond!

Our third contestant is the “Mystery American” who is going to keep us guessing. Turn-ons include having affairs with Russian KGB agents and disappearing after fires. Turn-offs include people figuring out who this guy is even after 3 ½ years of TBL torturing us on the stupid daddy-gate question. Please welcome “Mystery American”!

So basically we will list the pros and cons of each contestant along with trying to guess who the “Mystery American” really is. Then we will put it up for an audience vote.  (Audience Applause sign blinks on)

First up is Alexander Kirk. Let’s list the “pros” for Kirk being Lizzie’s father:

  • He is the only person who actually said he is Llzzie’s father. In fact he calls her Masha which is her birth name
  • He has a DNA test proving he is her father
  • He seems to know everything about her as a young child
  • He says he would never hurt Masha unlike Raymond who hurt his own daughter - ZING!!!!

Now to the cons for Alexander Kirk:

  • He kidnapped Liz and Agnes - not very fatherly IMO
  • He is seriously debating using baby Agnes’s stem cells to help cure his disease
  • He seems like the type of guy who would falsify records in order to manipulate Masha / Liz (yes she is only one person)
  • He said he would kill Masha’s “husband” Tom. (Whoops, on second thought, we should probably move that to the “pros” side of the ledger).

So, hey guys, remember that Profiler Lizzy AU I’ve been babbling to myself about lately? 

Here it is! Or the first chapter of it anyway, if there is interest in continuing it….?

anonymous asked:

I think Dembe is gonna lock Red and Liz up somewhere and force them to talk. Dembe is us right now. He can't take this bs anymore. LOL

I wish he would! Neither Red nor Liz is willing to broach this right now. I am anticipating a pretty painful conversation so neither of them will initiate it. 

As far as Dembe is concerned, he must think he is back in high school again watching these two.  Maybe he should pass them a note or something. 



“After Liz is abducted by a man claiming to be her father, Red sets out to find her at any cost. Meanwhile, the Task Force grapples with the shocking news that Liz is still alive.”



The Blacklist - Season 4 Episode 5 : The Lindquist Concern



Raymond “Red” Reddington, one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives, surrenders in person at FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. He claims that he and the FBI have the same interests: bringing down dangerous criminals and terrorists. In the last two decades, he’s made a list of criminals and terrorists that matter the most but the FBI cannot find because it does not know they exist. Reddington calls this “The Blacklist”. Reddington will co-operate, but insists that he will speak only to Elizabeth Keen, a rookie FBI profiler.


And she died. | And now you’re dead.

“It’s nice to fall in love on film. I mean it, because as an actor, you’re always seeking out roles that will take you to extremes. If you’re going to play make-believe, why not play make-believe in extreme situations? The more extreme it is, the more it pulls you out of your pedestrian life. I always think it’s more fun to do something fantastic than something highly realistic. I’m a very romantic person and I think we’ve been taught to believe that love is something ordinary - that everyone can find it, but I think real love is the rarest thing in the world. I have fallen in love, and I’m lucky for it. I think in life, people have this confusion about love. We all want to fall in love so badly that we are almost willing to lie to ourselves, to force ourselves into believing that we are in love when we aren’t. It’s too bad, because in so doing, we cheapen it. I don’t think we recognize the depth of the emotion at all. It’s entirely transformative, and we think of it as a blurb on a Hallmark card. When you’re in love, you can’t control it. It’s when you can’t take charge of what you feel, when you are completely powerless in the face of the emotion. When it happens, it happens in spite of you.”

- James Spader, excerpt from a 2002 interview
