Romeo and Juliet--A Parody

Romeo and Juliet--A Parody
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!

I laughed on numerous occasions while reading your spoof on on one of my favorite Shakespearian plays. The idea that Romeo was stalking Juliet is sprouting funny ideas in my head as we speak. I love your creativity and passion for writing and am looking forward to your next story.

Thanks so much for your comment, Finchy!  I actually like the original Romeo and Juliet play and I was worried people wouldn't think my spoof was any good.  Thanks for taking the time to read my novel!  :)

I really like this peice. It's a great twist on the story, and a really good parody. The only thing is, I think you should write more in between the end of the plot and the epilouge... but that's my personal opinion :) It's very funny, and it made me smile.

soo much fun! i love it!! i love how you have shakespeare come to this time period to get the idea for Romeo and Juliet. Very good.

one minor comment. in the epilogue, it say juliet gradutated from university. maybe should be 'a' university, or give it a name. but that's the only thing i found! great job!

I'm writing a novel right now.  I think I'll put up the first few chapters in a few days or so.  It's science fiction and I'd really appreciate it if you could read it too!  :)

Thanks, writer_girl15!  I promise I'll watch out for your submissions as well.  I should have already had two of my short stories (historical fiction and realistic fiction) approved, but the editors are taking forever.

"I love you[,] Juliet."

"I love you too, Paris."

I feel that the beginning of the story was very "olden days" (like romeo and Juliet time) but on in the story, it's gets modernized. Is that suppose to happen, because i got very confused as to what age i was in....


AHAHA (: It's funny when the dad starts loading his gun, my dad is so like that with boys (:


what kind of boy's name is Paris? I like it! It's unique :D


WO... (more »)

Thanks for the comment, Nadia6991!  Sorry I didn't make it clear Shakespeare was following Romeo and Juliet, but this was my first submission.  I originally had it in italics, but that got lost in the copying and pasting process.  In the play, 'Paris' is the name of Juliet's other suitor. 

And yeah, my dad is like that with boys too, so I added that part in!  That's probably what would happen if I had a boyfriend and brought him to meet my family! :)
