“But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes, and I know that, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who was he really? What was he like?
We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught. He can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world. I’ve witnessed firsthand the power of ideas. I’ve seen people kill in the name of them; and die defending them.
But you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it or hold it. Ideas do not bleed. They do not feel pain. They do not love. And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man. A man that made me remember the fifth of November. A man that I will never forget.”
A few days ago TS dropped this teaser image for rose:
In the image the date 5/11 is circled:
The fifth of November is Guy Fawkes Day/night:
You will probably know Guy Fawkes as the face on the mask that the main character in V for Vendetta wears.
Speaking of V for Vendetta, on B.A.P’s YW&F set was this peculiar painting:
Remind you of anything?
Furthermore, the rose ties in as ‘V’ left roses on the bodies of his dead victims, and if you look carefully, you can actually see blood on the walls in the picture:
So at this point babyz were 99% sure that, just like the ‘X’ in Skydive, there is a ‘V’ in Rose, who murders the members/another character in the mv (but probably the members let’s be real), the question is, who is V?
Well, Jongup’s picture had him holding a rose - suggesting he’s a victim:
And in the teaser TS uploaded, Dae was sitting next to the rose, possibly meaning he was also a victim:
HOWEVER, Dae uploaded an uncropped version of this image:
This version shows the v for vendetta like mask next to daehyun, suggesting he is the killer, and the rose is in a vase because it is the rose he will place on his victim - that Daehyun is V, which is likely the premise of the Rose music video.
Since TS themselves uploaded the image with the mask edited out, they probably didn’t want to make this big reveal to babyz just yet and spoil the mv, but dae went ahead and spoiled it.
*wearing a V for Vendetta mask* People shouldn't fear their governments; governments should fear their people. Tyranny is never justified.
Absolutely. Organize and arm the proletariat, and empower the oppressed by giving them a means to democratize their resources for human need. We ought to oppose tyranny from the state on all fronts, including in its structural role of maintaining the autocratic control of resources by a small handful of elites.
*sweating nervously* H-hey now, wait, stop, I didn't mean all tyranny! *sweats profusely*
For Princess Roslynda and her bodyguard Lyr, life is pretty much the same every day. Training before breakfast, studies by midday, and riding lessons in the evening. Until one day, a strange masked man invades their home, ripping everything away from them. Their fear is fully realized when they discover that the attack wasn’t politically motivated, but a personal vendetta. The masked man knows who they are and wants them dead, but why?
In the picture above, you’ll meet Rose and Lyr. They’re from a fantasy based epic titled Intertwined. I wanted to focus more on a small scale story with character development and internal turmoil being at the front-in-center while still having a plot push the story alone. This is the first time, I’ve ever written a story with a new outlining procedure and it turned out fairly well.
I wanted to get this posted by my birthday because it seemed like a good goal to set. I will post the first chapter today on Ao3 so I can have a link for this post. I also hope to get you all warmed up to the story. The next 22 chapters will be posted over the next few days and I will reblog this post when it’s all posted for those of you who want to read the whole thing all at once. There’s so much to love about this story, from the characters to the villains, and all the wonderful surprises in store. I hope you enjoy it.
