I wonder if the sum of your actions are simply quotes from "masqued
avengers" who seem to be more akin to schizophrenic drama queens than actual
revolutionaries, justice seekers or vigilantes.

The last paragraph is, perhaps what you really wish to attain, but haven't
gotten so far; You are not a symbol, V, you are simply another fan in a sea
of fan; you are not incorruptible because no one is seeking to subvert you,
you are not everlasting because this are not books of lore like your beloved
Tolkien writes.

You're just a fan; and not really a very bright fan at that.
