Summary:

Juliet Capulet is just your average teenage girl until a chance meeting at a community dance changes her life forever. She meets Romeo Montague, who immediately starts stalking her, claiming they are meant to be together. For Juliet, this is just too much; she calls the police. How did such a story inspire the great William Shakespeare? It's not how you think!

Thank you so much, WritingSpasms!  This was the first parody I've ever written, to be honest.  I'm so glad you had fun reading ths; that's the point of parodies. :)

I honestly and truly love this. You have no idea how much fun I had reading this! I'm usually not one to comment on parodies and such, but I thought this take on the classic Romeo and Juliet was hilarious! :)

Thanks, krarthurs!  I'll have an article on bullying up in a week or so (it's 'pending approval'), if you want to look for that, that would be great.

Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Haha this is great except for this sentence: "There were glowing lights all along the street, which the man was transfixed by. It was dusk, but the streetlights were already on." You repeated stuff about the streetlights and it made the setting a little confusing, but the rest was hilarious. KEEP WRITING!!!
