Imagine if Romeo and Juliet was about dinosaurs. Carnivores vs Herbivores. Raptor falls in love with a Triceratops despite the fact that their families are ancient enemies and tend to eat each other.* It's also sort of like Twilight, but with more relatable characters and an better plot.
Romeo & Juliet: Age of Lizards
The star-crossed lovers frolic in the prehistoric sunset as a disapproving family of Stegosaurs look on.
Imagine them, staring into each other's eyes, roaring their forbidden love across the savannah (?) and startling a passing flock (?) of pterodactyls.
Final scene: Dinosaur Romeo finds Dinosaur Juliet sleeping, and drinks deadly swamp water in despair. Dinosaur Juliet wakes, finds Dinosaur Romeo dead, and stabs herself with one of his claws. Stegosaurus Family arrive.
The smallest stegosaurus says, "For never was a story of more woe / Than this of Juliet and her Romeo" but it sounds like "HOOaaaaaargh rrrrrooooAARR AAARRROOOOHHH" because of being a dinosaur.
Cut to scene of rapidly approaching meteor.
Sorry I've been so bad at responding to comments recently. It's not because I don't love you, it's because I'm fairly lazy and very easily distracted. I'll get around to it, please keep leaving comments, I love comments. And you.
News: I start my new job tomorrow. Equal parts excited and horribly nervous about fucking up. Do some lucky things for me maybe, like cross your fingers and hold your breath while you're going over a bridge and don't have sex on the couch when people are home because someone will inevitably walk in on you and that is exactly the kind of unlucky that I don't need.
Also, thanks to my mysterious benefactor for the sexy new header! It's me, doing my tuba burlesque routine. Clearly.
*and they didn't live in the same time period, but shhhh!
