Author's Notes: It's been some time since I released a new Toy Story: The Aftermath Treats fan fiction. I've been working on the chapters of The Dark Tap Dancing Princess lately and I wanted the whole fan fiction finished before a new fan fiction as a succession will be released.
I had the idea of Buzz Lightyear and Jessie acting as Romeo and Juliet for some time. I was originally going to start writing this last week, but I was somewhat busy last weekend (to find out why, go to my profile and look for my official website link and find the blog post from Friday, March 2, 2012.) Like I did in The Lost Golden Hair Princess, I used the Toy Story character names for the "acting part" instead of the character names from the original (I hope you understand what I meant.) I still added the original characters' names as the Toy Story characters' last names, but it will I'm thinking that writing the rest of the fan fiction will be a difficult because I used the script from [I give credit to the site.] and it did not include the actions. Well, I hope I could manage writing. I apologize if you do not understand the script's lines because it's not the modernized version. I recommend watching the movies and seeing the play numerous times to understand.
EDIT: I fixed this chapter since I knew some you might have had a hard time understanding the dialogue from Romeo and Juliet so I did the translation to modern English from the original.
Rating: T: Contains content not suitable for children. A tragedy, some violence, strong coarse language, and suggestive content and dialogue.

Romeo & Juliet
It was a cool March Friday in the late afternoon. Bonnie was spending the weekend with her cousin Adela in her house. Her two best friends, Beatrice and Olivia, and her boyfriend Austin were also spending the weekend with Adela. Bonnie's parents were spending the weekend in Denver since it was their wedding anniversary. Her group of toys, the Kingdom of Játékok, was free to do their own fun in the weekend.
Mr. Pricklepants the Hedgehog walked upstairs to Bonnie's bedroom. He found the Duke Buzz and his wife, the Duchess Jessie sitting on her bed, watching TV across. "Hey, you two!" he called, running to the bed and climbed on it.
Jessie turned her head to look at him. "Yeah, Mr. Pricklepants?"
"I just wondering," he began. "I know I've asked the aliens to play Romeo and Juliet many times whenever I wanted to present the play to you, the King, and the others, but I want to ask if you both want to play Romeo and Juliet." Mr. Pricklepants showed a weak smile at the Duchess and her husband.
Jessie stood up and said, "Well, I'm okay with the fact I want to play Juliet." She turned to Buzz. "Buzz, hon, do you want to play Romeo?"
"Sure, love. I've always wanted to play him!" Buzz responded with excitement.
"Hey! Why didn't you ask before?" Mr. Pricklepants nearly shouted.
He did not respond. Instead, Jessie said something to shake the hedgehog forget what he said. "We should go downstairs and tell my brother, Bo, and the others."
The three toys ran downstairs and told King Woody and his Queen Bo to go to the Andersons' backyard to see the play at 5:30. Mr. Pricklepants got Rocky Gibraltar, Rex, and Prince Peter to set up the stage and the props. For some reason it did not take too long to build the whole set. Everyone who was attending came exactly at the right time to get seated.
Behind the stage's curtain, the performers were almost done dressing up. Mr. Pricklepants walked to them and said, "Okay, I am going to go out there to give out the prologue." He turned to Will and Carl, who were one of the Little Green Aliens. "'Gregory' and 'Sampson', you two are next after me."
"Yes, sir," the two toys said.
Mr. Pricklepants walked to the right side and emerged from the curtains. He then stood at the middle of the stage. He cleared his throat. "Two households, both alike in dignity…"
Woody – who would be playing "Benvolio" – popped out of the curtain and shouted, "JUST READ THE MODERN ENGLISH TRANSLATION!" He disappeared behind and a loud roar of laughter burst from the audience.
The hedgehog toy rolled his eyes. "Yes, Your Majesty," he replied sarcastically.
"In the beautiful city of Verona, where our story takes place, a long-standing hatred between two families erupts into new violence, and citizens stain their hands with the blood of their fellow citizens. Two unlucky children of these enemy families become lovers and commit suicide. Their unfortunate deaths put an end to their parents' feud. For the next two hours, we will watch the story of their doomed love and their parents' anger, which nothing but the children's deaths could stop. If you listen to us patiently, we'll make up for everything we've left out in this prologue onstage."
It was a normal day at the streets of Verona, Italy. Servants of Master Potato Head Capulet, Carl Gregory and Will Sampson, approached each other to talk. They were both armed with swords and bucklers.
"Carl, I swear, we can't let them humiliate us. We won't take their garbage," Will persisted.
"No, because then we'd be garbagemen," Carl teased, chuckling.
"What I mean is, if they make us angry we'll pull out our swords."
Carl rolled his eyes. "Maybe you should focus on pulling yourself out of trouble, Sampson."
Will shot him a look. "I hit hard when I'm angry."
"But it's hard to make you angry."
"One of those dogs from the Montague house can make me angry," his friend spat, close to anger
Carl crossed his arms. "Angry enough to run away. You won't stand and fight."
"A dog from that house will make me angry enough to take a stand. If I pass one of them on the street, I'll take the side closer to the wall and let him walk in the gutter."
"Then that means you're the weak one, because weaklings get pushed up against the wall."
Carl scratched his chin. "You're right. That's why girls get pushed up against walls—they're weak. So what I'll do is push the Montague men into the street and the Montague women up against the wall."
"The fight is between our masters, and we men who work for them," Will mumbled.
His friend rolled his eyes again. "It's all the same. I'll be a harsh master to them. After I fight the men, I'll be nice to the women—I'll cut off their heads."
Will gasped in horror. "Cut off their heads? You mean their maidenheads?"
"Cut off their heads, take their maidenheads—whatever. Take my remark in whichever sense you like."
"The women you rape are the ones who'll have to 'sense' it."
"They'll feel me as long as I can keep an erection. Everybody knows I'm a nice piece of flesh." Carl gave a smile.
Will put a hand on his friend's shoulder. "It's a good thing you're not a piece of fish. You're dried and shriveled like salted fish."
Soon, two other people started to enter the servants' conversation. It was and Chuckles Abram and Slinky Balthasar.
Author's Notes: Since the Little Green Aliens did not have real names in the Toy Story films, why not give some? I just wanted to do that for fun, y'know.
It was a bit hard to suit some of the Toy Story original characters for one of the Romeo and Juliet characters because of the personalities and physical looks. I will use some of my OCs (original characters) in the fan fiction to act some of the play's characters.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed reading the first chapter.
