Character/Pairing: Finch/Dominic
Media/Word Count: 4,447
Rating: Mature
Warning/Notes: Adult language, eventual slash, work in progress, movie-verse.
Summary: “For better or for worse it seemed that V, whoever he might have truly been, had succeeded.

A general FYI:

Due to AOL no longer supporting its members' homepages, the PEAhopeless V and Evey Fanfiction site has been taken down.

However, due to a promise made long ago, the stories have been transferred to another location until a more permanent home can be built.

You can access the stories by visiting this link: The V/Evey Fanfic Backups


Thank you!
 
 
Title: The Comforts of Home
Fandom: V for Vendetta
Pairings: Shades of Evey/V; firm gestures at Finch/Dominic.
Rating: PG-something. Unequivocal slashiness, anyone?
Notes: I vaguely remember insinuating to tartary_lamb and jennaria that I'd take a crack at Finch/Dominic in the weeks following the film's release. Time passed and passed, however, and although my liking for the film never diminished, I never quite felt like I'd gotten a good enough glimpse at the world or a firm enough grasp on the characters. Then, this weekend, I managed to read the graphic novel over two days at work. I'm not sure what clicked, but something must have. As ever, the characters are not mine, but any errors and indiscretions are.
Summary: You can only stare at the rubble for so long. Somebody's got to put on the kettle.

V For Vendetta: The FanEdit

Tag - This is England. After a nuclear war that leaves the planet ravaged, Fascism has become the force that rules our lives. Freedom is obsolete. FATE, the corrupt ruling power will stop at nothing to consolidate its power and emasculate its people. Terrorist, Madman or Murderer, whatever you call him.... he is forcing change! Yet what is one man against the might of the political machine? We call him V and he gives us hope.

Name - V For Vendetta: The FanEdit
Original Film - V For Vendetta
Film Studio - Warner Bros.
Original Film Release - April 2006
FanEdit Release - May 2008
Original Runtime - 132 min
New Runtime - 142 min

Conceptual Improvements /advancements of edit over original

I loved the Graphic Novel, V For Vendetta by Alan Moore and David Lloyd, but the film though visually striking was a real copout. Life after a Nuclear War on the scale depicted by the Graphic Novel is virtually impossible but I have re-introduced this idea. I have also erased any mention of America as it was destroyed in the conflict. I have also changed the political landscape of the film which depicted authoritarian conservatism to the original concept of Nation Socialism. Evey is no longer a Yuppie Television PA. I have cut all scenes with Deitich (Stephen Fry) and Rockwood (the expository V in disguise) as they were not in the Graphic Novel and are awful.

I hope I have made V more mysterious with cuts to his more simplistic Hollywood-ish dialogue and his overt "I am mad" acting. I have also changed V's motivation for imprisoning Evey, which in the film is hate, to the appreciation and realization of real freedom. This has now become a profound and bonding experience between Evey and V as it was in the original Graphic Novel. Evey now does not leave V. I have also changed the timeline of the film to reflect more closely that of the Graphic Novel. Finally I have changed the ending to leave a sense of ambiguity about England's future by the removal of the seriously contrived machine-like people in V Costumes.

What I hope I have done with this FanEdit is invoke the spirit, depth and excitement of the original Graphic Novel but I will let you be the judge of that. This FanEdit is inspired by Alan Moore.
