Leo x MC: Starting Over

I haven’t had the chance to post this fic until now since 1) I’ve been working on it FOREVER (mostly b/c of school keeping me busy, haha ^-^’) and 2) I was reluctant to post it on my Tumblr (I’m shy, okay? :P).

Anyway, here it is! Dedicating this story to you lovelies who adore Leo and/or Shakespeare~. :)

BTW, this is technically Part I of the story (So the Prologue and Acts I, II, & III.). I’ll try to post Part II (Acts IV, V, & the Epilogue) as soon as I finish writing them. :P


Warnings: Low-key spoilers; mentions of murder; story gets kind of angsty/dramatic/emotional by the third act (whoops~).

Nonetheless, enjoy~. (Story below.)


Keep reading

I’m watching Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet and I forgot how incredibly trashy it is

but at the same time it’s a very good adaptation because it gets the sense of violence and simmering tensions in the city (both a representation of the factional violence peculiar to catholic countries of the time, and to the fighting of apprentices and youths in London). it even has the laughter at Mercutio’s made up move, mocking his punto and passado and ‘hay’. and it’s got the youthfulness, it’s believable for being about teenagers, posturing teenagers who shouldn’t have guns.

you have the play of authority and individuality, seen in the translation of the prologue into news report and monologue by the friar, two different systems of power and dominance. and the way Juliet is made commodity, a power tool for her family.

and it has the language of difference, the Capulets made clearly foreign in their Italianate stylings, Shakespeare intervening in the discourse of aliens in London.

Lurhmann gets the epic scale perfectly; it’s about framing the narrative of two lovers into something bigger and demonstrating the horror of it all. the two teens are fitted into something much bigger than them, epic music and extreme pathetic fallacy combined with shots where only one character addresses the camera. when Mercutio dies, he dies framed by a ruined stage at Sycamore Grove… their lives have been wedded to calamity through their interaction with power greater than them, and they became the play

and you have the madness, the utter idiocy behind all of the plot, the dizziness of the party and the way Romeo falls in love under the influence of ecstasy. and the water’s never far away, they see each other through fish tank, swimming pool and rain - what’s the truth?

it’s visceral, with the trashy flashy realism and the brilliant soundtrack… and that’s what Shakespeare is. pop entertainment that hits you in the stomach with emotions

also I forgot that Paul Rudd was in this film

For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo

So I was texting my girlfriend and I asked her what team she was on Pokemon go. She said valour and because I’m team mystic I immediately thought of Romeo and Juliet. So I wrote her this

Two teams, both alike in dignity, In fair Pokemon Go, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy team and refuse thy gym;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Mystic.

Team Instinct to mystic and valour:
My gym is hurt.
A plague a’ both your teams! My Pokemon is sped.

What’s in a team?That which we call a mystic
By any other team would still catch them all.

For never was a story of more woe than this of Mystic and her Valour(o)

I don’t want a Romeo and Juliet love story. Have you ever even read that? They know each other for a couple days, then commit suicide. It’s not beautiful. It’s not romantic. It’s infatuation and impatience. I want a grandparents’ love story. I want a long, drawn out tale that my grandkids love to hear about when they come over. Something my daughter can compare her love to and something my son tries to mimic with the person he loves. I want dates and flowers and drive in movies. I want to be chased. I want dinners where he meets my parents and giggly nights telling my best friend about how he treats me. I want frozen yogurt runs and late night grocery store drives. I want day trips and I want nights under the stars and I want living together. I don’t want infatuation. I want to be loved deeply.

anonymous asked:

i want to get into other comic editorials besides marvel and dc, could you recommend me what are some good ones and what comics should i read?

Sure can! I’m not sure what kind of genres and characters you’re specifically into, so I’m gonna go for broad-spectrum stories here.

I highly recommend getting a Comixology account. It’s really well-organized, delivers your comics to whatever device you want to read them on, and makes it a lot easier to access work by smaller publishers. For real, just explore their browsing options and click on what looks interesting to you! That said:

Image Comics: Image is really coming into its own–I’m starting to hear people refer to a “Big Three” instead of a “Big Two” and while that’s sort of a hilariously backhanded insult towards the industry, it’s also exciting. Right now, Saga is one of the biggest series in comics, a fantastic space opera with amazing art and characters and imho, it deserves all the hype it gets. The Walking Dead is Image’s most famous book–I haven’t read it (zombies aren’t really my thing), but check it out if your'e so inclined. Sex Criminals has made a pretty huge splash with just 4 issues, so now is a great time to jump in. Some other popular currently-running series include: Chew, Alex +Ada, Pretty Deadly, Lazarus, Velvet, Fatale, East of West, Morning Glories, and Rat Queens. I’m not caught up on all of those (okay, I haven’t actually read East of West or Morning Glories yet but my friends love ‘em), but they’re all fairly roundly enjoyed. Some older/completed Image comics I’d recommend are: PhonogramI Kill Giants, It Girl & The Atomics, Girls (haven’t read that one yet, but my friend liked it a lot), Nowhere Men (ditto), Mara, and The Pro. Image Expo revealed a lot of exciting new series in the comic year–I’m particularly excited for Ody-C, The Wicked and the Divine, Shutter, Bitch Planet, and 8house. Image is honestly fairly accessible as comic publishers go–just browse their website/comixology page/Wikipedia entry and look up what looks interesting!

IDW: IDW is mostly licensed stuff, but they put out Locke & Key, Parker, and The Rocketeer. A lot of their licensed stuff is pretty decent actually, so take a look and see if they do comics for any franchises you’re already into.

BOOM! Studios: The Adventure Time comics are all fantastic–they play around with side characters the show could never devote any real time to, pull in all kinds of cool webcomic talent and just have a whole lot of fun in a lot of different ways. I’m not into Regular Show, but I hear the comics are pretty good too. BOOM! also did Irredeemable and Incourruptible, which I’ve heard mixed things about but got enough buzz that you might want to check it out. CBGB was pretty cool too.

Dynamite: Dynamite has rebooted it’s Red Sonja span of comics recently, with Gail Simone at the helm–we’ve got everything now from Queen Sonja, to Tales of Red Sonja, to Lil’ Sonja. I’d recommend you start with the first issue of the revamp and go from there. Beyond that, there’s a lotta classic cheesecake at Dynamite, from Dejah Thoris to Vampirella, which, yes, is capital-P Problematic but I had a lot of affection for them as a kid looking for any women in comics, so I’ll toss them in here. :P. Oh, and American Flagg which I read a tiny bit of years ago. I honestly remember nothing of it but it’s fairly well known.

Abstract Studio: Abstract Studio is actually just Terry Moore’s own publishing company. Strangers in Paradise is his most famous work, a loooooong and complicated love story between Francine Peters, an all-American good girl and Katina Choovanski, a punky bad girl with a tough backstory. SiP is not perfect and probably ran past its expiration date but I totally love it and rec it wholeheartedly. Rachel Rising is Moore’s currently-running series and I urge everyone to check it out too because Moore is thinking of ending it due to financial concerns.

Top Shelf: Lotta good stuff at Top Shelf. Alan Moore has published some work here, most prominently From Hell. Blankets is here as well, probably one of those most well-known and accessible graphic novels around. I’d recommend Essex County, Alone Forever, Chester 5000, Owly, and March. Honestly, I’m seeing tons of stuff on the TS Comixology page that I’ve never heard of before but now really want to read!

MonkeybrainBandette is adorable and fun and also appropriate for all ages. I’ve heard really interesting things about High Crimes, Subatomic Party Girls and The Double Life of Miranda Turner.

Archie Comics: cough Afterlife With Archie cough

Fantagraphics: Fantagraphics is where you’re going to find Love and Rockets, one of the absolute pillars of the alternative comics world. They have done an amazing job of making 30+ years of work accessible to new readers–check out the Guide to L&R on their website. Fantagraphics stuff ranges from collections of older work like Nancy, Carl Banks’s Disney comics, and the old EC horror titles to weirder, more avant-garde stuff, so I highly recommend digging into their website on your own to see what you’re into. Some stuff I’d recommend: Hip Hop Family Tree, Meatcake, Wandering Son. I highly urge you to check out their stuff for yourself though–none of these publishers have a unified universe or voice the way DC and Marvel do, but Fantagraphics least of all.

Oni Press: Well, Scott Pilgrim of course. But also: Wet Moon, Salt Water Taffy, Hopeless Savages, and Queen & Country. Again, like Fantagraphics, there’s no unified voice here.

Slave Labor Graphics: If you’re looking to feed your inner goth kid (we’re talking the one who wears Tripp pants and listens to Good Charlotte specifically), you’ll find Nightmares and Fairytales, Gloomcookie, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Lenore here. They’ve…kind of peaked, tbh? And a lot of this work is out of print now (but pretty cheap if you buy it used on Amazon), or severely dated. But it’s still worth a look, I think.

Vertigo: Vertigo is technically a DC imprint, but I’m going to put it on here anyway as it’s really it’s own separate publisher, in terms of content. Vertigo has put out a lot of stone-cold classics over the years, and a lot of interesting little stuff that maybe didn’t take off the way Sandman did, but are still worth reading. I recommend: Fables, Sandman, Preacher, 100 Bullets, Animal Man, Doom Patrol, Y: The Last Man, Scalped, Pride of Baghdad, Cuba: My Revolution, My Faith in Frankie, Swamp Thing, Sweet Tooth, We3.

Dark Horse: Empowered. I love Empowered so much (though be warned that it’s basically softcore. BUT IT GETS AMAZING TRUST ME.) The Avatar: The Last Airbender comics are good, if you’re into that series. The Fifth Beatle got a lot of buzz this year. You’ll find all the Hellboy stuff here, and Sin City. Oh, and Blacksad, which is fantastic. That’s all I’m really familiar with–definitely look into Dark Horse on your own and see what piques your interest.

There you go! Phew. I hope that was helpful.

The Romeo and Juliet, Ed Sheeran/Taylor Swift Jukebox Musical Track List

Basically a Romeo + Juliet musical where The Capulets only sing Taylor Swift songs and The Montagues only sing Ed Sheeran songs

Opening Number: Give Me Love/ Bad Blood

Romeo is pining for Rosaline who has rejected him.

Introduction to Romeo, Mercution and Benvoli: This City

Romeo and Benvolio learn that Rosaline has been invited to a party at the Capulet house. Benvolio suggests crashing the party so that Romeo can see that the other women are more beautiful than Rosaline is.

Lady Capulet tells Juliet that Paris wants to marry her.

Introduction to Juliet: Fifteen (Idk, I  feel like there’s a better option but, I don’t know that many taylor swift songs)

Romeo and friends arrive outside the Capulet house.

Party Scene/ First Meeting: Everything has Changed

Romeo and Juliet decide that they will get married the next morning. Romeo goes to Friar Laurence to arrange the wedding.

Balcony Scene: This/ Enchanted

SICK ASS MERCUTIO SOLO: You Need Me I Don’t Need You

Romeo finds them. The Nurse arrives. Benvolio and Mercutio leave. The Nurse warns Romeo that he better not be toying with Juliet because Paris genuinely wants to marry her. Romeo says that “within this hour” a servant will deliver a rope ladder so that he can get into Juliet’s room when night falls. Juliet is upset that the Nurse is taking so long.The Nurse delivers Romeo’s message. Romeo and Juliet meet at Friar Laurence’s cell

Romeo and Juliet’s wedding: Love Story/ Kiss Me

Benvolio and Mercutio encounter Tybalt. Romeo arrives, and Tybalt challenges him. Romeo refuses, so Mercutio fights Tybalt. Tybalt kills Mercutio, so Romeo kills Tybalt. The Prince orders that Romeo be banished.

(I feel like there should be a song here but I don’t know what song)

Friar Laurence tells Romeo that he has been banished. The Nurse comes to bring Romeo to Juliet. Lord Capulet decides that Juliet shall marry Paris on Thursday.

Juliet Learns of Tybalts death/ Romeos banishment: Treacherous

Romeo leaves for Mantua after spending the night with Juliet: Drunk

Juliet is told that she must marry Paris on Thursday morning - or else. Juliet goes to Friar Laurence, and he suggests a plan that she take a drug that will make her look dead so that she can sneak away with Romeo.

Juliet fakes her death: All You Had To Do Was Stay 

Romeo learns of Juliet’s death

Romeo’s Death: Autumn Leaves

Juliet wakes up, and Friar Laurence tries to get her to leave. She refuses, and he flees when he hears the watchmen coming

The watchmen arrive, find the bodies, and send for the Prince, the Capulets, and the Montagues. Balthasar and Friar Laurence are apprehended. The Prince, Capulets, Montagues, and others arrive. News of these events is spreading through the streets. We learn that Lady Montague died of grief earlier this evening because of Romeo’s banishment. Friar Laurence, Balthasar, and the servant explain what happened. The Prince scolds Lord Capulet and Lord Montague, who finally end their feud.

Finale: I See Fire/ Every Thing has Changed Repirse

Instead of two rebellious lovers going against their parents. Have two rebellious people who hate each other, yet their families want them to marry.

We all know those tired clichés. It’s time to kill them. Take one of them and turn them on their heads or at least these will hopefully keep the errors out of your writing. If you think of any other way to change them up go right ahead. Happy hunting!

Thanks @ninjagorocksdealwithit​ for sending this prompt in!

We all have unwritten stories in us. Works of art that tumble through our thoughts. Some of us just aren’t as good at getting it out for the world to see. But that doesn’t make the stories any less beautiful or clever. Because if no one saw the starry night, would it be any less captivating? If no one read Romeo and Juliet, would it be any less tragic? I dare to say the they wouldn’t be any less. Just like the unknown art inside us all.
—  KJS // Excerpt from the book I’ll never write #55

so i’m doing a subtitled translation of romeo and juliet into contemporary english using the zeffirelli film version and i came to romeo’s ‘‘beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!’’ line, which i’ve always loved 

and then i realized that it’s pretty much the shakespearean equivalent of ‘‘beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world, too pure’’ 

you called me a rose on the first day
  back when you kissed like dew
your fingertips soft as flower petals
  back when I was in love with you

you calmed my storms the first month
  and your eyes were like lightning
back when we could call it love
  before it started disintegrating

you traced my heart like an artist
  and you were good at your craft
back before we lost us
  before my heart split in half

you gave me good times like extra change
  and we both fell like dead petals
but love was never my price to pay
  now you have the freedom you wanted

the time of the ending hours
  guess it’s not love without war
while you told her she was a flower
  did you go and call me a thorn?

Procrastinating over essay writing in Verona

Romeo: Starts early, gets distraced, changes topic ten times over, breaks down moaning the injustice of his existence, asks Friar Lawrence for help

Juliet: Makes an outline, collects material, writes it all down, ignores the nurse’s incredibly useful pieces of advice with a smile, coaxes Tybalt into proofreading at 3am the nigth before the deadline same goes for her dad, hands it in with a cute drawing on the folder

Benvolio: Sits down, draws an outline, locks Mercutio out, does his research, writes paper, finishes three days before deadline, corrects it and hands it in.

Tybalt: Gets a topic, makes ridiculously detailed outline, hangs the essay guidelines as poster over his desk, starts actually working three days before the deadline, lives on an unhealthy mixture of coffee and energy drinks till he hands a flawless, but rather boring essay in.

Mercutio: Essay? *stumbles over beer bottle, lands on heap of unwashed laundry*  What essay?

Types of Relationships in Novels
  • The Victor/Susanna: The classic romantic novel couple. There are sparks, there's tension, there's sex. Ends with a "happily ever after" despite the odds. Typically begins unhealthily.
  • The Edward/Bella: The "are-we-sure-this-is-romance" couple. Are there sparks? We think. But honestly, the stalker-ish tendencies coupled with total submission can't be right.
  • The Christian/Anastasia: The "this-isn't-romance" couple. How did this happen. The sex is fantastic, but this isn't romantic; this is abuse.
  • The Harry/Ginny: They've been friends since childhood, despite the odds. But they've always liked each other, and that leads to a happy marriage right at the very end.
  • The Ron/Hermione: Do they love each other or hate each other? We don't fucking know, but they got married anyways, and boy do they like to snog.
  • The Mako/Korra: Yessss, the OTP, the spicier-than-Mexican couple! But wait - they're a little too opposing to really work out. They get put back on the shelf, but people hope.
  • The Korra/Asami: From enemies to friends to lovers. The burn is slow but sweet, and the ending even sweeter. Most of the romance goes on after the novel is done.
  • The Wilson/Willow: Is this actually a thing? They hardly even met! Oh well, the romance is in there SOMEWHERE.
  • The Romeo/Juliet: Ahh, what a romantic- YOU TWO ARE THIRTEEN STOP STABBING YOURSELVES.
