In the spirit of true love, here’s a series of wonderful/horrible valentines featuring the poorly rendered faces of some of your favorite writers, brought to you by the genius behind Badly Drawn Authors.
lizzingtonweek | day two. fave quote (either said by them, said about them, or a quote you think fits them)
that’s polaris. the north star. that’s how sailors used to find their way home. when i look at you, that’s what i see. i see my way home.
this is the quote that killed me. said so softly and easily. when just seconds before he hadn’t been able to come up with the words. red’s salvation, red’s redemption, has always been through lizzy. and it’s these short sentences that show just how hard he’s trying to get there. and the quick way she turns to look at him. how she just stares and learns so much about him from his confession. this entire scene is the epitome of lizzington to me and short of a love confession, nothing will be better than this.
Don’t fall in love with me. Not unless you’re ready for a God damn fight. I don’t do fragility, or friction and fairy tales. I want you to be irrational because I’m irrational. Be bold. Speak your mind. I want your wildfires and obscenities. I want your passion and priorities. Protect what’s yours. I’ll defend what’s ours. Let us fight against routines and bad habits, and anything typical. And don’t you dare quit. Not on us, not on yourself. God help the person who threatens us. Forgive me when I let you down, but don’t overlook it, or allow it. We’re all insecure about something. Show me yours. We’re all terrified sometimes. Turn to me. People come in and out of my life so often and easily that I just look for a love that stays. I don’t mind your blemishes or scars, I have a few of my own. Don’t be another flash in the pan. Falling for me will be easy. Staying with me will be impossible. But you deserve a love that most people don’t believe in anymore.
13 DAYS OF OUTLANDER ~ 2x02 Not in Scotland Anymore | Favorite Moments
“Scotland is a beautiful country. It’s glens. It’s lochs. It’s mountains. We’re a people of the land. A simple people with no great love for outsiders. We will fight - have fought - each other more than not. But you ask us to shed our blood for what? To put a more sympathetic arse on the English throne? Is that cause enough for a cotter to exchange his scythe for a sword? To leave his home, his crops, and charge into a cannon’s blast?“
Because this whole episode is a badass moment. They both save each other - Liz when she goes to the Factory to get him out and Red when he goes through the prison yard to save her from Braxton (not to mention how sexy he was while doing so hehehe). We also see Liz and Red working together as a team, and a lil romantic confession come from Red.
This is one of the Blacklist episodes I could watch again and again. I love it way too much
well. bringin it back to the beginning. no matter what has happened or what will happen, the heart of this show will always be red and lizzy. the pilot episode is the birth of that and i love them. i’m going to do my best to not say anything about tonight’s episode because lizzingtonweek is about celebrating this relationship, so we’ll leave it at this: i love them. they are the heart of the show and nothing will ever change that.
There is so many incredible Lizzington episodes, but one that really stands out to me is S2E14 - “T. Earl King VI”. In the storyline, Red and Liz have been somewhat at odds for a while before this ep, but Liz still totally drops everything to go and save him. From badass undercover Liz, to Red trying bid on himself (I mean this ep was super heavy but that scene was gold) to “Lizzy”, to the two of them going upstairs and taking down to King family like a freakin’ power couple. And of course, the scene in the car.
This ep was Lizzington through and through. I really hope we see another like it in the future.
