Anonymous asked: Do you know any good lizzington fics? (: thanks
Yes! there are so many incredibly talented writers in the fandom, and so many fantastic stories!
First of all, you must check out redxlizzie (who writes amazing fics) - her entire blog is dedicated to organizing lizzington fiction. Here are some brilliant authors who write primarily Blacklist/lizzington, check out all of there stuff on ff.net:
I haven’t read all of the fanfiction, but here are some of my personal favorite Red+Lizzy fics:
Cetus - this is a dark, epic, achingly beautiful oneshot (if you read it, tell me you didn’t sob at the end of it, I dare you)
Her Name is Alice - a crossover fic with Luther. (I actually watched the entire 3 seasons of Luther because I was so fascinated by the character of Alice Morgan in this fic.) Luther fans will love it, but knowledge of that show isn’t necessary. great Red-Lizzy interaction —> correction, in progress sequel is Second chances
Jack O’Sullivan - a completed, wonderfully-written multichapter adventure - plenty of Red and Lizzy working undercover, as a married couple
That Which Consumes - a very good oneshot set in the aftermath of 1.10, Lizzy’s POV - introspective, melancholy, but ultimately hopeful.
The Spiderman - an in-progress short story: moody, sexy and dangerous. (go bombard the story with reviews so she finishes!)
Warm Trend - a completed, mulitchapter fic that is so elegantly written: a look at what might have happened had Lizzy gone with Red to Cuba. the introspective description is exquisite.
(and there are others too, everyone feel free to add to the list)
EDIT: I forgot to add these two, but they are simply must-read:
Kiss - this is a really great multichapter story that begins somewhat lightly, and then goes to a really serious place -lovely characterization of Red and Lizzy; dark and sweet, yet not syrupy
The Guardian - a multichapter that explores the Lizzy-Red dynamic after something big happens to Liz - sensual and gritty, fantastic story. private islands and amnesia are involved
Oh, my gosh—I’m the loser who’s taken an entire year to write one story (The Spiderman) here! ;) I’ve been trying to work on others simultaneously but am aiming to have that wrapped in the next month. I will make that shit happen before the one-year mark, haha… Tumblr has recently become yet another distraction for me, so there you go. (I blame you all!!)
Belated thanks for the kind words, and yes to the sentiment that this fandom has some pretty awesome writers all around.
i’m holding you to that! lol. i LOVE that story… i sent you a PM on ff.net begging you to finish it a little while ago, if you remember ;-)
also these are some of my other fav blacklist authors… (who i def. never give enough praise to…) so here’s a blanket "YOU’RE AWESOME!!!" to you all! and to all the other writers out there, you’re awesome too! hope this keeps some ppl from doing RL work because you should be reading these author’s works instead!

Thank you for acknowledging the work of these amazing authors as well as my own (redandlizzie on FF and AO3). Fan fiction will always be foremost in my heart and really does set the sails of a ship. We’ve been so fortunate to read so many beautiful, fun, sensual, and heart wrenching stories.
I still haven’t recovered from @believetheblonde (a.k.a. tore-my-yellow-dress) “home is wherever I’m with you.” [Link]. EDIT: I’m so very sorry, I tagged the incorrect tumblr account in my original reblog.
In addition, you can find a link to my Lizzington fan fic recs [here].
belle-fitspo asked: Hey there, I'm Belle and I found The Blacklist only recently. I'm a huge James Spader fan & really want to explore the possible romantic/sexual side of Red's relationship with Lizzie. I've only seen the first 3 episodes so far, though. Can you point me to a fanfic that contains no spoilers? Thanks in advance!!! :) P.S. By the time you answer I will probably have seen a couple of episodes more, so let's say anything before S01E06 will be perfect :)
I suggest starting at the very first entry of my Lizzington fan fic blog, redxlizzie.tumblr.com, and working your way forward. Those recommendations should fall in line with the progression of the show, but be warned - stories were slow at first and didn’t start picking up until episode 9 or so.
Also, the first couple of fics I wrote should be spoiler free for the most part. Direct links to those may be found on both of my blogs. Happy reading and welcome to Lizzington!
