2 Works in Rosaline Capulet & Prince Escalus
Two corporations, both alike in wealth and esteem,
In present day Philadelphia, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge leads to product rivalry,
Where disrespect makes propaganda unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these CEOs
A pair of inheritors are charged with ending the fight;
Whose allies cleverly plot and interpose,
To, with this merger, finally make things right.
The fretful passage of their fabricated love,
In hopes to discontinue their fathers' rage,
Which, but their children's union, scarcely could subdue,
Is now the climactic discourse of thought to page;
That which if you with patient eyes attend,
What here shall miss, these characters shall strive to mend.
Rosaline Capulet does not believe in soulmates. But on her 23rd birthday, she starts dreaming of him - but finds that when she wakes she can't remember his name. Is he in a rival Fraternity? Or is he her artist roommate - or that Hufflepuff her friends tried setting her up with? She sees him every night in her dreams but she needs to figure out who he is outside of them.
Benvolio Montague has always wanted a soulmate. He's had dreams since his 23rd birthday but never of her. Just when he's lost all hope, he sees her face. She wants to be friends with benefits. But she's also the history teacher across the hall - and she's the person trying to kill him. But no matter what, it's always her. He only remembers her face, but he won't stop until he finds her.
