i’ve got super into girl meets world lately and all i have to say is that RIARKLE SHOULD HAVE ENDED UP TOGETHER AND LUCAYA IS ENDGAME. ALSO THE SHOW DESERVED AT LEAST TWO MORE SEASONS AND SHOULD HAVE MOVED TO ANOTHER PLATFORM SO THAT THEY COULD HAVE DEALT WITH MORE MATURE THEMES. RANT OVER

(also, as a bmw fan, i wish that eric and shawn had been in more episodes)

..what if she had someone whispering ideas into her ear…

I loved this scene because Friar Lawrence could barely bring himself to look at Lady Capulet out of guilt but then she starts talking to him and her grief and anger starts pouring out.  This is so rarely shown these days and I was like Friar Lawrence’s sense of dread  when Lady Capulet was going to go on a mission to find someone to blame for Juliet’s death.  Rosaline is the initial target but will she discover Friar Lawrence’s part in it as well.

Zuleikha Robinson was really excellent in expressing the grief and anger of a mother losing her only child for reasons that don’t make sense.

topanga lawrence // lucas friar

“The surname Friar makes a lot more sense when you remember a character from Romeo and Juliet named Friar Lawrence. [ Lucas ] was originally to be named Tristan, a reference to Tristan and Iseult; these choices of name telegraph his role as the Love Interest. Although since both of these great romances end tragically, it’s easy to see why Tristan was changed to Lucas, retaining Friar only because it also works as a reference to Topanga’s maiden name.( x )

OK I KNOW THIS ISN’T THE BEST SOLUTION EVER, BUT IF YOU WANT MORE SSC, READ THE BOOK! IT’S REALLY GOOD! AND IT HAS MORE ROSVOLIO IN IT! I MEAN, THERE’S DIFFERENCES, BUT READ IT SO THAT WAY YOU CAN GET MORE CONTENT!

I haven’t finished reading the book yet but this just came to me pls enjoy

- Benvolio and Rosaline leave to prove his innocence.
- After about a week and FEELINGS coming out in both, Lady Capulet spreads a rumour that Livia is in great danger.
- Word gets to Rosaline, and while Ben warns her that it could be a trap, she needs to make sure Livia is safe.
- Once back in Verona, Lord and Lady Capulet prevent her from leaving again, insinuating that harm will come to Livia if Rosaline tries anything.
- Escalus then decides that since Ben has either disappeared forever or is already dead, and that he is very likely guilty, Rosaline should marry Lord Montague, and sooner rather than later to hopefully still the rising tension between their houses since Ben’s supposed murder of that Capulet bloke.
- Ben gets word of their marriage, and since he’s recently realised he loves Rosaline (or at least, likes her enough to not wish marriage to his uncle upon her), he decides to return to Verona.
- Before that, he found Friar Lawrence and tries to convince him to return to Verona and tell the Prince the truth. The Friar initially refuses, so Ben gives up but still returns to Verona.
- During the wedding, Escalus asks if anyone has any objections (you can totally see Rosaline thinking about all the objections she has, but Livia’s life is on the line so she holds her tongue).
- Ben then busts through the door like “I can think of a few objections!” Cue chaos.
- Rosaline is so relieved (and so is Lord Montague if we’re being honest), but she’s also scared - Ben’s name hasn’t been cleared yet and all murderers (even suspected ones) get hanged.
- As Ben is arrested, Rosaline asks why in the hell he would come back to stop the wedding of all things.
- “Well I couldn’t let my betrothed marry someone else could I? Not when I love her so deeply.”
- Anyone else would think he was kidding but Rosaline’s been ‘stuck with him’ for the past week - she knows he’s telling the truth.
- But anyway Ben’s gotta be hanged for murder OOPS thinking before doing was never really Ben’s strong suit aye.
- HOWEVER as Ben is brought to the palace for sentencing, Friar Lawrence toughens up and busts in to tell everyone the truth about what’s been going on.
- HOORAY Ben is free, Rosaline doesn’t have to marry Lord Montague BUT she still has to marry Ben but it’s okay bc they’re in love now??

I feel like I should write this properly but I’m tired lol
