Hey folks,

Go blow shit up for justice!


Your queer feminist anti-militarist anarcho-socialist grrl.

I believe in peace... Bitch!

"V For Vendetta" has for a while now been my fave movie and (graphic)novel.

One of the things that made V so pleasurable to watch, was the fact that he had been played by the wonderful Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith? Mitzi?) and the Speech where he introduces himself to Evey (Natalie Portman), which doesn't appear in the Novel (then again, the beautiful scene where V calls Justice a whore isn't in the movie, so *shrug*).

Embedded is the Speech, which is very difficult to understand (and learn) so someone carefully subtitled V so that we can understand him better.

Thanks to [ profile] mistressindi for linking this.

I know, I know, not my holiday, but I feel a special something towards it mainly because of the graphic novel (and to a lesser extent the movie), not because of the "blowing stuff up", but because of opposing Fascism thing.

And thus, as they say...

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow

The rest is about how he failed and particularly insulting towards Catholics and thus has no place in this celebration of subversiveness *grin*.
The complete (and non-PC) poem you can find here, the actual wording and rhyming is actually entertaining, but like many things it has fallen out of favour and perhaps it's better that way... so long as we can always find them when we want to.

Even Neil advocates the Fifth.

And now for something completely different! )

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
