Dystopian World

Hate looks like everyone else until it smiles

The Definition of Dystopia

Quote

"It seems strange that my life should end such a terrible place, but for three years I had roses, and apologized to no one." - Valerie from V for Vendetta

The Dystopian Hero is Valerie

She is the Hero because she lets us see through her point of view she feels trapped and struggling to escape, she questions the system, she also feels that something is wrong with society.
