    Summary

    "Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs;
    Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes;
    Being vex'd a sea nourish'd with lovers' tears:
    What is it else? a madness most discreet,
    A choking gall and a preserving sweet."

    Juliet's private struggles with love and marriage before the events of the play.
    Her parents relationship is one so cold she can't help but wonder...is this the marriage that awaits her?

    Summary

    "...What are these
    So wither'd and so wild in their attire,
    That look not like the inhabitants o' the earth,
    And yet are on't? Live you? or are you aught
    That man may question?..."

    The Three Witches gather to see what will become of the Thane of Glamis and his honourable friend.

    Summary

    "You have of late stood out against your brother, and he hath
    ta'en you newly into his grace; where it is
    impossible you should take true root but by the
    fair weather that you make yourself: it is needful
    that you frame the season for your own harvest."

    The Don John rebellion: Short and bitter.
    Don Pedro cannot help but wonder "Am I my brother's keeper?"

    Summary

    This is a preview of a fill for the prompt below and obviously includes a form of Paris x Mercutio. Characters are based on the Rómeó és Júlia production by Budapesti Operettszínház, as registered on video and found on DVD. I'm posting this to get your help in how to write this story because I am looking for a pairing to determine how the plot will go.

     

    I need your help: what pairing should this story have? Vote for Paris x Mercutio, Benvolio x Mercutio or Tybalt x Mercutio.

     

    Based on the prompt: Paris is drugging Mercutio with love potions. Benvolio notices something is wrong and wishes to save his friend.

    Summary

    "Herein I see thou lovest me not with the full weight
    that I love thee. If my uncle, thy banished father,
    had banished thy uncle, the duke my father, so thou
    hadst been still with me, I could have taught my
    love to take thy father for mine: so wouldst thou,
    if the truth of thy love to me were so righteously
    tempered as mine is to thee."

    With Rosalind and Orlando besotted, Celia suddenly finds herself very alone.

    A monologue she never got to say.

    Summary

    "I'll give thee fairies to attend on thee,
    And they shall fetch thee jewels from the deep,
    And sing while thou on pressed flowers dost sleep;
    And I will purge thy mortal grossness so
    That thou shalt like an airy spirit go.
    Peaseblossom! Cobweb! Moth! and Mustardseed!"

    While Titania and Bottom sleep, the four fairy attendants discuss the pros and cons of their ridiculous situation.

    Summary

    On the other side of the curtain, another world away, the Lord Bassanio drones on for what seems like hours, and Portia asks, abruptly, “Would you rather be hanged or wived?”

    “Hanged, lady,” says Nerissa darkly, and Portia throws back her head, and laughs, and laughs, and laughs.

    Summary

    "'Tis still a dream, or else such stuff as madmen
    Tongue and brain not; either both or nothing;
    Or senseless speaking or a speaking such
    As sense cannot untie. Be what it is,
    The action of my life is like it, which
    I'll keep, if but for sympathy."

    Consumed with grief, and awaiting execution. Posthumous dreams a miraculous happening.

    Summary

    "Cassius from bondage will deliver Cassius:
    Therein, ye gods, you make the weak most strong;
    Therein, ye gods, you tyrants do defeat:
    Nor stony tower, nor walls of beaten brass,
    Nor airless dungeon, nor strong links of iron,
    Can be retentive to the strength of spirit;
    But life, being weary of these worldly bars,
    Never lacks power to dismiss itself.
    If I know this, know all the world besides,
    That part of tyranny that I do bear
    I can shake off at pleasure."

    The Ides of March draw nigh.
    Cassius knows there is no other way.
    Caesar must fall.

    Summary

    When Romeo and Mercutio wake up with awful hangovers and no memory of the night before, they must retrace their steps and interview their acquaintances to reconstruct the forgotten events, which include an anachronistic court ruling, lots of irresponsible drinking, and a drunken decision that shocks them both. One thing’s for sure: life will never be the same for these two bros.

    Summary

    "Thou art a fool: she robs thee of thy name;
    And thou wilt show more bright and seem more virtuous
    When she is gone. Then open not thy lips:
    Firm and irrevocable is my doom
    Which I have pass'd upon her; she is banish'd."

    With each new "disappearance" at court, a little more of Duke Frederick's sanity slips away.
    Where is that daughter of his?

    Summary

    "These are the forgeries of jealousy:
    And never, since the middle summer's spring,
    Met we on hill, in dale, forest or mead,
    By paved fountain or by rushy brook,
    Or in the beached margent of the sea,
    To dance our ringlets to the whistling wind,
    But with thy brawls thou hast disturb'd our sport."

    Oberon and Titania are old as the seasons and just as changeable.
