Here’s one of millions of different paths you can take in the new book, Romeo and/or Juliet: a Chooseable-Path Adventure, by Ryan North.
We’re joining the story in Act 2 Scene 2, which you’ll recognize from the actual Shakespeare play. Juliet has SECRETLY MARRIED Romeo, and now she’s waiting at home for Romeo to climb up the sex ladder he sent ahead (Romeo is extremely classy), so they can consummate their marriage! Meanwhile, Romeo has killed her cousin Tybalt due to some supremely bad decision making. As Juliet, we’ve just decided to keep waiting for Romeo. Let’s see what (could possibly, depending on what choices we make) happens next, shall we?
