MACBETH AND GRUOCH
SORRY SHAKESPEARE *SPOOKY BAGPIPES PLAYING IN THE DISTANCE* I don’t actually know what time period this answer takes place in so MAKE OF IT WHAT YOU WILL
Give me a ship and I’ll tell you who:
-chooses the pumpkin: Gru! She excitedly tells Macbeth about this one really great pumpkin patch; they go together and he’s too busy grinning sappily at her to pick one out himself, so he gets whatever she wants.
-carves the pumpkin: they do it together, giggling over how bad it looks. It ends up being the ugliest jack-o’-lantern ever, but they did it!! And Macbeth only nicked his own fingers like four times that’s even better than last year!!
-gets scared and clings the other in a haunted house: poor Macbeth. There’s just something about the witches jumping out at them and the ghost that keeps appearing just at the corner of his eye that terrifies him. Gru, luckily, is afraid of absolutely none of it, until the very end when they get separated and she accidentally runs into one of the actors, getting smeared all over with the fake blood, and can’t find Macbeth and they mistake her for one of the actors too and that’s not enough blood here take this knife and go stand over there NO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND I’M TRYING TO LEAVE I LOST MY PERSON STOP NO WHY STAY BACK. He comes running as soon as he hears her scream and they get the heck out of there and don’t go back and EVERYTHING IS FINE, IT’S TOTALLY FINE, NO HEAVY-HANDED THINLY-VEILED REFERENCES HERE AT ALL.
-matching costume idea: THIS MAY BE CHEATING but Banquo is the one to suggest they do matching costumes, but Macbeth gets confused and tells him no, they’re absolutely not going to match him, that would be super weird, Banquo, why would you suggest that.
-makes a cozy bed-fort to cuddle in: Gru does while he’s away; when he comes back home it’s to a note demanding he come join her. He laughs and is very impressed by how much thought and effort went into her structurally-sound fort made out of bedding.
-steals the other’s candy: Gruoch steals his candy. And the bucket it’s in. And his hat. (AND HIS HEART <3)
-accidentally gets lost in a corn maze: actually, that’s Gru; she keeps getting turned around and ends up stuck in the same dead end several times over before finally just stomping through the corn and grumbling about how this is clearly the worst activity they’ve ever done.
-tells spooky stories to scare the other: well… Macbeth starts them, but Gruoch always comes up with way scarier endings than he had planned originally. Unfortunately sometimes she’s too good at it and scares herself too, and then they’re both just huddled in bed, wide-awake and gripping each other’s hands and listening to the night sounds.
-collects cool-looking leaves: Gru - she carefully stores them with her pressed flowers. Macbeth brings her some when he finds them too.
