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!

Thanks for the thoughtful comment! :) I did write this a while ago, and looking back with the skill I have now, I have to agree with you. My ending was pretty sloppy.

I love the irony in here! I hated reading Romeo and Juliet last year, so imagine how much I enjoyed this parody. I was so caught up in the story that I forgot to notice the mechanics of the writing itself. I liked the narration shift but I thought the conclusion ended a tad to sloppily.

Very true! I think Romeo and Juliet is a perfect example of ranging teenage hormones!!

I don't really read Shakespeare, but I think 'Julius Caesar' would be my favourite.  What story would you like me to commet on?

Sorry, I don't have time to read everything.  Could you name two or three things you'd like me to read instead?
