Remember remember the fifth of November

I always thought fireworks were so romantic! Something about watching the sky light up with your other half... Anyway, V for Vendetta has to be one of my favourite films and watching it recently in preparation for Bonfire night got me all excited to watch the fireworks! I am sharing my favourite quote from the movie with you all not only because it's a great, memorable quote but it portrays how sweet and intelligent V really is.

"But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace soubriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. 
Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the “vox populi” now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. 
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. 
Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V."

Happy Guy Fawkes day // Bonfire night!
