Well, I went to Paris to see m'sister and then to Kingston to see me nan. Had great and glorious fun and drank to excess to celebrate renewed mobility. Managed to peep into the net once or twice, but for once RL was being wonderful and methinks I deserved a vacation.

Now am back, happy to be back and happy to continue the Massacre of Shakespeare. IOW, here's

Balcony scene! yay. I've made an unholy mess of it, was fun! Harry highjacks some of Juliet's lines for the purpose of parody and euphony. Hermione gets vulgar. Ron gets scandalised. Snape yells offscreen.

Right, I meant to add the balcony scene, but that's for next post, mefears, because no matter how much I cut, I can't bring myself to cut some things. A few notes at the end.


ROMEO AND JULIET, HOGWARTS STYLE - 2 )

Hello my friends, I'm back online and am ambulatory! I went to work! Yea, verily and suchlike I went to my lil place of work on my own two legs and I worked!

You'll have noticed I'm still a bit high with joy, I presume. And so, being so joyful and things, methought of a great idea! Why not utterly desecrate Shakespeare for one of my ignoble pastiches and spoofs? Why not indeed. So I'm rewriting Romeo and Juliet. It's all William's fault! 'My only love sprung on my only hate'...! C'mon! Who can resist it? I can't. I had a long debate about who should be who, because, of course of the 'deny thy father' thingy, but in the end I couldn't resist Voldiemort as Paris, so I think Romeo will highjack that particular piece of Juliet's rant and that will be that.

Well, I'm the parodist, I can do it.

I've also decided that, being, as it were, a double agent, Snape will have a double role: he'll both be Capulet and the Nurse. Because I'm cruel, that's why.

There'll be unabriged and abriged Shakespearean verse (I've magled quite a few) and lots of prose with thous and thees thrown in every now and then. To give it a flavour, y'know? There's also a mini-tiny-wee tribute to Maya in this section. Because she started a Veela!Harry fic and she deserves tributes.

And so, without further ado, let me present:
