This is a work in progress, pretty much fetus status when it comes to my writing process. This is an idea I randomly got, and I have a general idea as to where I want this to go, but right now this is all I have.

The prologue (what I have so far) was inspired by a song called "What If You" by Josh Radin (there is one or two lines of dialogue that I took from the song and placed in the story because it fit so well), so if you'd like to hear it, here is the Youtube link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rcRlD6LYMU Enjoy!

**Also, caution: some mature content.**

While the names of Romeo and Juliet are used and there are many references beyond that to William Shakespeare's play, this is not an interpretation of the classic. This story is purely my own creation, with some references, but mainly my plot and ideas. If you are not a fan of Shakespeare's play, try to give it a chance and keep this in mind. Happy reading!

Although I am not at all a lover of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, I have to say that I liked this because it displayed real emotion, and you can see how much they love one another. I also like that Juliet is a more stereotypically modern girl in that she has a portion of the control, she is forward and she's also acting her age in some ways. I liked it more than I would like the original play, which is quite something haha :)

Its a nice book but its not my type of book. SO I was un-interested. Still a very good book though. I'm glad I was able to see good books.

Wow, you write this incorporating so much emotion between the two lovers...it's so adorable and sweet and you really show their genuine love to the reader. The ending...is it the end? It was kind of sad and depressing and I want to know more...! This is usually not the type of story I would normally read, however I really like the strong sense of character you give your protagonist. I also really like this twist on the classic story. It's those little details and subtle character descriptions that really made this flow. I had no trouble picturing the scene and as well the connection and relationship between the idea. I still hope there is more to it...

I actually hate the story of Romeo and Juliet, but that didn't stop me from enjoying this. You had really beautiful descriptions in this and were able to focus on the things that need to be focused upon. Your portrayed your characters' emotions very well.

One thing that made me do a bit of a double take was when Romeo mentions that Juliet deserves someone with a bedroom as lavish as hers (or something like that). Maybe it's just me, but I thought that was a bit of a strange way to put it. And weren't Romeo and Juliet in the same social class?

Also one mistake I caught: "They'll be nothing I can do." - They'll should be There'll

Overall though, this is beautifully done. You've got a gift!
