before u say that romeo and juliet is a play about dumb teenagers let me explain u a thing
except really: i’ve had a few people asking me why i even bother with this play that is SEEEEMINGLY about nothing or some rubbish i don’t understand. it’s one of my favourite shakespeare pieces and i always get an eyeroll when i say that, to which i have to promptly eyeroll in return because there’s a decent chance the person rolling their eyes is a little more out of it than i am. not always…….okay so far i’m at 100% track record but im sure it’ll happen one day.
anyway, this only MARGINALLY begins to breach what’s going on in romeo and juliet. it’s one of shakespeare’s shorter dramas but fUCK DOES HE CRAM A LOT IN THERE FOR IT. everytime i read it i find something new and usually heartbreaking. this play makes me fucking bawl (ok not literally i don’t cry at movies and books and things) and i don’t think it’s for reasons people are usually grasping. SO HERE ARE MY FEELS though only really for the main young cast as, again, i couldn’t possibly get into everything here. also carefully avoided friar lawrence or else it would have kicked off everything else. maybe one day there will be sequel with more stuff but for now here is the bare bones framework.
I CANNOT EVEN EXPLAIN HOW PERFECT THIS IS OH MY GAWD
Seriously guys, I know it’s a lot of text but EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS. This is the best analysis of the play I have ever seen. Just WOW.
also I like how all of the pictures are from different adaptations of the play
so i finally maxed ken’s SL and tried to doodle him aged up to feel less like…a..cradle robber…. (it didn’t work (回言回*);;)
FAVE/RECOMMENDED MANGA: Oresama Teacher. 10/10
Shoujo manga with typical guys falling for one girl? How about NO. It’s about a girl named Kurosaki Mafuyu who was a juvenile delinquent and was the head of her gang. She is the number one strongest delinquent and is ready to be have a new life in her new school after being expelled. But can she really considering her first friend is a handsome delinquent? It’s pretty much shounen in a lot of ways because there are a lot of school fights.
Don’t read this when people are around. Don’t read it at night as well. Make sure you read this WHEN YOU ARE ALONE. Because it would be too embarrassing if someone heard you laughing so loud like an idiot.
