"Good evening.

"We are here, all of us, to celebrate a day that once lived in infamy and has since become the anniversary of our rebirth as a people, and as a nation. Many of us remember the night our futures changed forever, the night of the Old Bailey … even if we didn't recognize it as such at the time. We remember the fall of Norsefire, and that terrible, wonderful moment when we realized that we are the only ones who can control our own destinies.

"Tonight, I want to introduce you to a person who made all of this possible for us. Without this person's courage, and determination, and love, our world would have been lost. It's taken a long time, but I think now you can finally meet one another …

" 'I don't know who you are. Please believe. There is no way I can convince you that this is not one of their tricks, but I don't care. I am me, and I don't know who you are, but I love you …' "
A (tiny) moment that I felt needed to happen.

What a great idea. I think they'd totally do that.
I just can't help wondering... now that V is alive, and Evey has that cloak that's a foot too short but perfect for her... which of them addressed the nation here?
I know that it doesn't matter for the people... but it must matter for V and Evey. Maybe they take turns or something :)

I always envisioned Evey being the one speaking here, as herself. In this universe, I see V being a quasi-mythic figure in the background who only rarely is seen (as a good legend would do... ;)), and Evey, not wanting the people to rely on V's persona, would work with Finch and any allies as her own self.

I love this idea!
I was so moved by Valerie's story and, like Anne Frank, even though she is gone she lives on through her words. It would have been great if V (or Evey) had said this to keep Valerie's spirit alive.

And thank you for including the beginning of the letter. :aww:
