    Summary

    Happily ever after.

    Or is it?

    It’s been two weeks since John’s wrecked wedding and their daring escape. Illness leads to the connection of heartbreaking memories, and John realizes she is pregnant. With her brother’s men searching for her, and her lover overwhelmingly wanted dead, the two must struggle on, trying to find the course of action least detrimental to John’s sanity. But maybe Conrade sees more than John does, more than a heinous violation or torturesome memory, but an opportunity for something more... love, strength, passion, and endurance.

    Summary

    Hero admires her cousin's bravery and strength. Beatrice thinks her little cousin has strength all on her own, but Hero doesn't see it. A tumultuous affair in which Hero finds herself a lady in love, a fallen woman, and eventually dead (to her fiance) causes her to reevaluate the attributes it takes to be a real hero, and if the person a hero saves can be herself.

     

    Possible romance elements to come, but for now this is just an exploration of Hero and how I think a soft teenage girl might feel when suddenly thrust into turmoil for the first time in her life.

    Summary

    John makes it several strides before he lurches to a halt, ripping open his sleeve with a hiss, his wrist burning. Where before there had been plain skin, he now stares at the delicate letters inscribed over his pulse.

    Hero

    "Well," Conrade murmurs, "That changes things."

    He watches Leonato do quick mental calculations, already knowing the final sum. The governor might prefer Claudio as a man, might want to indulge his beloved daughter’s infatuation, but at the end of the day a prince is a prince, even a bastard one, and a count is just a count.

    Claudio intends to marry Hero. Don John gets to her first.

    Summary

    John’s always had terrible taste in women. Except for Conrade. Conrade seems like the only respectable option. But, not in a romantic way, nope, completely platonic.

    Conrade’s always had to see them come and go, girl after girl, all the while wondering, When is she ever going to look at me?

    They just want a relaxing life. But being royal and a rising to fame celebrity doesn’t quite allow them such things. Love, jealousy, affairs. Cameras, magazines, microphones. What more could you possibly want?

    Summary

    Don John is ripped from restless slumber, a horn blasting in his ear. His gaze lands on the cause of his rude awakening; a goose hovers beside his bedroll, glaring its beady, black eyes.

    Summary

    Title - "Dark Times" by Ben Platt

    Hero has always been happy to fly under the radar, to not get too much attention, to be unproblematic at best and invisible at worst. With a boyfriend in Claudio, she suddenly exists in the spotlight at WSHS, but when tragedy--a blessing in disguise--strikes, maybe, just maybe, she'll be able to start keeping her head up the way she was always taught to.

    Summary

    Imogen and Leo have been expecting company for much longer than the week or so they're going to get it. Imogen wants everything to be perfect, Hero's too excited to do anything else, and Leo's spending too much time on his ledgers for anyone to care when Beatrice decides to wait outside for a skirmish. Not that she missed this, or anything. Ben certainly hasn't.

    Act I, Scene 1, from a range of angles in the big old farmhouse.

    Summary

    Done to death by slanderous tongues,
    Was the Hero that here lies:
    Death in guerdon of her wrongs,
    Gives her fame which never dies:
    So the life that died with shame,
    Lives in death with glorious fame.

    Summary

    Beatrice had never possessed much in the way of advantageous hopes for marriage. Truly, she had never possessed much in the way of hopes for marriage of any sort, certain of the fact – or perhaps frightened of the possibility – that she would be ill-suited to the whole affair.

Her punishment for deceiving and ruining the marriage of Hero and Claudio is to renounce her freedom and marry a man of Don Pedro's choosing. Conrade won't accept this, however.

    Summary

    Ben and Beatrice try to push each other everywhere except off Leo's roof at the worst homecoming-turned-engagement party of all time. It could be that they're older, or lonelier, or there's just been enough time since they last rejected each other, but it almost feels like they're getting along again. Or something.

    (Act II, Scene 3 as a dialogue more than a monologue)
