OK, what I was trying to say when I posted, um, nothing at all was that I have spent the evening trolling the dark alleys of fan fiction, and came across a delightful half-serious "The Blacklist" crackfic that explained that Elizabeth Keen's parents were Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling.
Of course they were. It's slightly less insane than some theories I've seen.
I must salute the fan fiction writers of the universe for rarely keeping it real, but frequently keeping it interesting.
Also, I may not be a real Lizzington shipper (that's Liz/Red for the uninitiated) - I don't care either way - but he's definitely not her daddy, c'mon. I daresay that many Lizzington shippers are so dedicated that even a flat out Maury Povich "Red Reddington, you are the father!" moment would just make them shrug a little and go, "Eh, let's just go all Anais Nin on this."
Shippers just want what their hearts want, you know. Can't blame them for their passions, even when I don't share them.
