S: Moments With You Romeo
FC: Romeo and Juliet | The journal of Juliet Scene 1
1: Romeo doesn't want to leave our property so, he ditches his friends and out in the orchard behind my house. Benvolio and Mercutio try to find him. Unaware that Romeo now has the hots for me and old desire for Rosaline.
3: Juliet's Journal Scene 2
4: Romeo is wandering aimlessly around my backyard when guess-who appears on the balcony. "What light through yonder window breaks?" he asks. He then answers his own question. "It is the East, and Juliet is the sun!" Soon I was talking to myself too. "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?" I ask. You might wonder, "why I'm asking where Romeo is?" Well, as it turns out, "Wherefore" doesn't mean "where." It means "why." I'm saying, "Why does the guy I love have to be a Montague?" I go on talking to herself about how amazing Romeo is. Romeo is smart enough to keep his mouth shut and listen. Finally, he can't resist anymore, and he calls out to me. I am embarrassed that someone heard me.
5: Love Birds
6: Juliet's Journal Scene 3
7: That Romeo sure is fast because the next thing we know, Romeo tracks down Friar Laurence, who has been out foraging for medicinal plants and herbs for one of his concoctions. Friar Laurence delivers a speech about how herbs and plants have the potential to be healing and medicinal, but if they're misused, they can be deadly poison. Friar Laurence looks at Romeo and notices that lover boy hasn't "been in bed tonight" and assumes that he must have finally hooked up with Rosaline. He also notices that Romeo is suddenly cheerful after weeks of moping around. Romeo announces that he's over Rosaline and wants to marry me.

10: Mercutio and Benvolio still haven't figured out where Romeo is. It turns out that Tybalt has sent Romeo a message that goes something like this: "I'm going to beat you up with my sword. "Mercutio is convinced that lovelorn Romeo is in no condition to face Tybalt in a duel. Mercutio uses the opportunity to mock Tybalt, who takes himself and his sword fighting skills way too seriously.Romeo finally shows up. Mercutio and Benvolio notice that he's dropped the depressed "Rosaline doesn't love me" act. He's back to his old energetic, joking self. The fellas engage in one of their favorite past-times, talking trash and telling some of the dirtiest jokes in Western literature. As planned, the Nurse shows up to meet with Romeo. He looks ridiculous, as nurses sometimes did back then, and Mercutio can't resist flirting with her, mocking her, and talking dirty to her.

13: In an orchard at my place, I waits for the Nurse to come back with a message from Romeo. I worry that they might somehow have missed each other. When the Nurse comes back, she refuses to tell Juliet anything and complains about her aching back. This is an old game between the Nurse and I: they love teasing each other. The Nurse keeps refusing to tell me what Romeo said until I can't stand it anymore. Finally, the Nurse gives in and tells Juliet to run to Friar Laurence's cell where Romeo is waiting so they can get hitched.

16: Back at Friar Laurence's place, the priest tries to convince Romeo to calm down a little; marriage is for the long term. "These violent delights have violent ends," he warns. Unfortunately, it goes in one ear and out the other. I run in. The room's hormonal level skyrockets. Romeo and I can barely keep their hands off each other, even in the presence of a priest. Friar Laurence takes them off to marry them so they can move on to the highly anticipated honeymoon phase.

19: Thy head is full of quarrels as an egg is full of meat; and yet thy head hath been beaten as addle as an egg for quarreling. Thou hast quarreled with a man for coughing in the street, because he hath wakened thy dog that hath lain asleep in the sun.
21: Juliet's Journal Act 3 Scene 2
22: My blood for your rude brawls doth lie a bleeding; But all amerce you with so strong a fine that you shall all repent the loss of mine.I will be death to pleading and excuses; Nor tears nor prayers shall purchase out abuses. Bear hence this body and attend our will.
23: happy times
24: Juliet's Journal Act 3 Scene 3
25: In that word's death; no word's can that woe sound. Weeping and wailing over Tybalt's corse. Wash they his wounds with tears? Mine shall be spentWhen theirs are dry, for Romeo' s banishment. Take up those cords. Poor ropes, you are guil'' 'd What less than doomsday is th prince's doom.
27: Juliet's Journal Act 3 scene 4
28: A gentler judgment vanish 'd from his lips not body's death, nut body's banishment. O deadly sin! O rude unthankfulness! Thy fault our law calls death; but the kind prince.

31: Romeo and I wake after our first and only night together. We don't want to say good-bye, but we know Romeo will be killed if he gets caught in Verona. Not to mention in my bed. "O think'st thou we shall ever meet again?" I asks him as he leaves for Mantua, a nearby city. "I doubt it not," he replies. Before I have time to get myself together after saying good-bye to my husband, my mother comes in. They manage to have a conversation about "that villain Romeo" in which my mother misinterprets 99.9% of everything that I says. I will announce my big, exciting news: in two days,I will be marrying Paris! I respond fiercely that I will not marry Paris under any conditions. My mother can't understand what's going on with me. My mother said I didn't used to be so stubborn and headstrong. My mother throws up her hands and decides to let my father handle this. "Wait 'til your father gets home." My father walks, beaming that he set me up for a marriage without consulting me first. In his mind, I should be grateful.
33: Juliet's Journal Act 4 scene 1
34: Paris has stopped by Friar Laurence's church to make plans for his upcoming marriage to me. The Friar is quietly freaking out; he's not a big fan of enabling bigamy. I rush in, thinking the Friar will be able to help me. Instead, he is talking with the last person on earth I want to see: Paris. "Happily met, my lady and my wife," Paris says to me as I enter. It's pretty much downhill from there. Eventually, Paris takes the hint that I needed to make confession to the Friar, and he leaves – but not before giving me an unwanted and uninspiring kiss. Pushed to the breaking point, I whip out a dagger and tells the Friar I will kill myself if he can't think of a way for me to avoid marrying Paris. Confronted with his second suicidal teen in under 24 hours, Friar Laurence remains calm. Once again, he has a better plan that doesn't involve suicide. He tells me his idea. He knows of a weird potion that will make me appear as if I dead for "two and forty hours
36: Juliet's Journal Act 4 scene 2
37: I go home, humble and repentant. I apologize to my father for my disobedience and say I will marry Paris. My father is overjoyed and decides the marriage will take place the next day, even if he has to stay up all night making preparations.
39: Juliet's Journal Act 4 Scene 3
40: I convince the Nurse and my mother to leave her the alone. Then she takes out the potion the Friar gave her. She worries for a brief moment that it might be real poison. She freaks herself out by imagining what it will be like to awake surrounded by a bunch of dead bodies, including the fresh corpse of her cousin Tybalt. She drinks the potion, but makes sure to fall on to the bed instead of dropping awkwardly onto the floor.
42: Juliet's Journal Act 4 Scene 4
43: Everyone is bustling around cheerful trying to get things ready for the wedding that morning. No one has realized yet that the bride has stopped breathing.
44: "lucky i'm in love with my best friend"
45: Juliet's Journal's Act 4 Scene 5
46: Benvolio and Mercutio are hanging out as usual, trading insults and mocking the Capulet's. Trouble materializes in the form of Tybalt, who is trying to find Romeo so he can get back at him for crashing the Capulet's party. Tybalt provokes Mercutio by saying Mercutio thou consortest with Romeo,"
47: I will always love you Romeo
48: Juliet's Journal Act 5 scene 1
49: In exile in Mantua, Romeo wakes up feeling good. He just has a dream in which I found him dead, but then kissed him dead, but then I kissed him back to life.
51: Juliet's Journal Act 5 Scene 2
52: Romeo didn't get the message that friar Laurence sent the letter with his friend, Friar John, who was delayed due to an unfortunate mix up. Friar John comes back without having delivered the letter. Friar Laurence has a bad feeling about this. Friar Laurence goes off to the tomb thinking he'll have to wake me alone.
54: Juliet's Journal Act 5 Scene 3
55: Juliet's tomb seems to be a popular locale. When Romeo arrives, Paris is already there, sadly tossing flowers. Paris sees Romeo and assumes he's there to somehow dishonor us. To be fair, Romeo looks pretty suspicious - he's carrying a bunch of tomb - breaking - in tools. Paris tries to do a citizens arrest on Romeo, who is, after all, an outlaw. Romeo tells Paris just to leave him alone, but Paris refuses. So they fight and Rome fatally wounds Paris.
