juliette and romeo

O Romeo, Romeo...

So this is my contribution to Marichat May, now no one can tell me I never did anything for it xD I hope you enjoy :) 

“Ugh, this is so stupid, Tikki,” Marinette complained, crinkling the pages of the Literature book she was holding in her hands. “There’s no way I can make this convincing.”

“Not with that attitude,” Tikki giggled. “Relax, Marinette, you’ll be a great Juliette! Don’t push yourself too hard. Besides, you’ll have the book right in front of you in class; you don’t have to memorize anything.”

“I know,” Marinette sighed dejectedly. “But I have to practice this, at least. What if Adrien plays Romeo? I want him to be captivated by my Juliette, and that can’t happen if I just read straight from the book.”

hahaha guys the musical version of Romeo and Juliet is just so quality, honestly:

French? Hungarian? You can listen to the soundtrack in English probably, but pick a language and prepare for An Experience

French version is Romeo et Juliette, and it’s the original play/music

  • the Montagues and Capulets are color-coded. Pretty sure it’s supposed to be red and blue, but honestly, it’s more like magenta and violet. Sharkboy vs Lavagirl, omg
  • everyone’s hair is so Extra in this version
  • the d a n c i n g
  • Les Rois du Monde. Just that song/scene 
  • everyone looks like MCR Killjoys era, and the general visual and musical theme is like, Mad Max if governments still existed
  • everyone! is so! gorgeous! and amazing!
  • i just love Juliette a lot in this version, okay?
  • dialogue updated to more modern language (as far as my subtitle-reading self can tell) and it works really well
  • nobody cares about Romeo’s lonely soul because everyone is too busy TEARING UP VERONA IN SYNCHRONIZED DANCE STEPS

okay, so I’m a bit biased. I think you should watch both! Definitely, you should watch the French version, because it’s amazing and original!  but actually, if you’re going to only watch one of them, you should watch the Hungarian version because:

  • Bereczki Zoltán
  • Benvolio is like 97% more Personality in this version
  • alas, the color-coding is not nearly as obvious, but do not fear, because the hair is cranked up to 300% to make up for it
  • idk if this was a mistranslation or if this is genuinely the closest English meaning to match the Hungarian, but somewhere in the middle of a really serious song, Romeo says something like “my buddies, my friends” and I can’t stop laughing 
  • Juliet is so pretty and cute and she’s just so excited to fall in love! and meet someone who is cute and nice and wants to kiss her! 
  • if you didn’t already ship R&J you’re freaking going to now they’re so cute i’m literally covering my face with my hands and squealing 
  • pretty much every time Benvolio and Mercutio are sharing the stage, I cannot stop smiling
  • this Romeo is like Romeo+Hamlet. he’s all introspective and premonitions of doom, so it punches you in the feels that much harder when it turns out he’s RIGHT
  • the Montagues are a pack of young, feral, hedonistic, heathens and it’s fantastic
  • frickin’ Tybalt
  • the serious parts are actually serious, and they’ll tear you up, let me say. if you didn’t feel feelings about the deaths and the suicides before, you will while watching this musical
  • (those last 6 are true of the French version, too, I just stuck them in here because I’m biased)
  • this link really says it all tbh: http://indigo-night-wisp.tumblr.com/post/94954703234/theghostparty-to-reign-in-hell
  • Bereczki Zoltán
  • he bears repeating

"Romeo e Giulietta" William Shakespeare (Scena del Balcone, atto II, scena II)
  • Giulietta: O Romeo, Romeo! Perché sei tu Romeo? Rinnega tuo padre e rifiuta il tuo nome! Oppure, se non vuoi, giura soltanto di essere il mio amore e io non sarò più una Capuleti.
  • Romeo: Ascolterò ancora, o risponderò a questo?
  • Giulietta: Solo il tuo nome mi è nemico. Tu sei tu, se anche non fossi Montecchi. Che cos'è un Montecchi? Né mano, né piede, né braccio, né volto, né altra parte che componga un uomo. Oh, sii un altro nome! Un uomo che cos'è? Quel che chiamiamo rosa, avrebbe forse un profumo meno dolce con un altro nome? Così Romeo, se non fosse Romeo. Riterrebbe quella cara perfezione che possiede senza quel titolo. Oh Romeo, rinuncia al tuo nome, e per quel nome che non è parte di te prendi tutta me stessa.
  • Romeo: Ti prendo in parola chiamami soltanto amore e sarò battezzato di nuovo; d'ora in poi non voglio essere mai più Romeo.
  • Giulietta: Chi sei tu, che, all'ombra della notte, invadi così i miei pensieri?
  • Romeo: Con un nome non so dirti chi sono. Il mio nome, o cara santa, è a me stesso odio perché ti è nemico. L'avessi scritto, strapperei quella parola.
  • Giulietta: Le mie orecchie non hanno bevuto cento parole di questa voce, eppure ne conosco il suono: non sei Romeo e un Montecchi?
  • Romeo: Né l'uno né l'altro, bella fanciulla, se l'uno o l'altro ti dispiacciono.
  • Giulietta: Come sei venuto qui, dimmi, e perché? I muri del giardino sono alti e ardui da scalare, e il luogo è morte, riflettendo chi tu sei, se qualcuno di casa mia ti scopre qui.
  • Romeo: Con le ali lievi d'amore volai sopra quei muri:confini di pietra non sanno escludere amore, e quel che amore può fare, amore osa tentarlo: i tuoi parenti non sono un ostacolo per me.
  • Giulietta: Se ti vedono ti uccideranno.
  • Romeo: Ahimè, c'è pericolo maggiore nel tuo sguardo che in venti delle loro spade. Sii tu dolce con me, e al loro odio sarò invulnerabile.
  • Giulietta: Non vorrei per nulla al mondo che ti vedessero qui.
  • Romeo: Il manto della notte mi cela ai loro occhi; se tu mi ami, lascia pure che mi trovino. Meglio perdere la vita per il loro odio che allontanare la morte nell'assenza del tuo amore.

Chapter: ½

She’s just another face in the crowd.

But she stands out.

She’s battling her way through the waves of I’m late-s, I should have gone to bed earlier-s and Why haven’t I started that bloody paper yet-s entangling themselves in people’s legs. They trip, but she bears on.

Her hair is made of flames; they lick their way through the sea of people, turning them to ashes, burning a path for her - James is entranced. Her brow is furrowed with decision, and she doesn’t hesitate to nudge someone out of her way with her shoulder, or to make herself bigger with the size of her backpack which looks like it could make her topple over. She parts the flood with sheer determination in her eyes.

She’s unstoppable.


He goes unnoticed.
