V de Vendetta- YOU CAN CALL ME "V"

The aha! moment with Naatos actually came when my husband was watching the Robin Hood BBC series. I was just scribbling away in the corner, not really paying attention. Up until that point, I had never really been able to envision a particular actor as Naatos. Then the episode shifted to "Let the Games Commence," and it struck me right there that he would make the perfect Naatos. I do love those aha! moments. The funny part was looking back and seeing what a perfect fit the character was.

I have little left in myself -- I must have you. The world may laugh -- may call me absurd, selfish -- but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame. - Mr. Rochester of Jane Eyre (Top 20 Byronic Heroes in Literature)

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I have never liked any movie version of this I've seen, so I never made the effort to read the book. That was a mistake that I recently rectified. It has simply never been adapted to the screen properly. Such a powerful story! I don't think it was insanity, particularly on Catherine's end. Dysfunction...oh yes. And there were no ghosts. *rolls eyes* But I do think they were two people who were bigger and wilder than their humanity allowed them to be.
My absolute favorite book , read it about six times, just between ages 12 and 14. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte: The ultimate gothic romance. Full of mystery and misery.
Wuthering Heights - Emily Brontë This is literally my favorite book in the entire universe. Every time I read it I love it even more.

You sense my loneliness...my bitterness at being shut out of life. My bitterness that I'm evil, that I don't deserve to be loved and yet I need love hungrily. My horror that I can never reveal myself to mortals. But these things don't stop me, Mother. I'm too strong for them to stop me. As you said yourself once, I am very good at being what I am. These things merely now and then make me suffer, that's all. - Lestat from The Vampire Chronicles (Top 20 Byronic Heroes in Literature)

“The Vampyre” by John William Polidori -- John William Polidori’s landmark short story “The Vampyre” transformed the fabled undead creature from a monster into an aristocratic gentleman. It was conceived when the English writer and physician spent time at the Villa Diodati with Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, and Claire Clairmont, sharing ghost stories — the same gathering where Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein.
Whether I am a fool or a villain I know not; but this is certain, I am also most deserving of pity - perhaps more so than she. My soul has been spoiled by the world, my imagination is unquiet, my heart insatiate. To me everything is of little moment. I have become as easily accustomed to grief as to joy, and my life grows emptier day by day.- Pechorin of A Hero of Our Time (Top 20 Byronic Heroes in Literature)

A Hero of Our Time (Russian: Герой нашего времени, Geroy nashevo vremeni) is a novel by Mikhail Lermontov, written in 1839 and revised in 1841. It is an example of the superfluous man novel, noted for its compelling Byronic hero (or anti-hero) Pechorin and for the beautiful descriptions of the Caucasus.
