| Call Me Bessie chapter 1 . 5/7
Wow. I am very impressed - you've got the feel of the scene, with far less cringe-worthy dialogue, and you've managed to put it in iambic pentameter at that! Not to mention the clever allusion to Romeo and Juliet ("Wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?"/"What satisfaction canst thou have tonight?"), and the ending of the last two lines of the last two monologues in rhyming couplets, which altogether make a stellar rewrite of this scene. I would be absolutely delighted if you took it upon yourself to create more works in this fashion, or even (dare I hope?) a full movie rewritten thus.
I have read a few other of your pieces, and I am delighted as to the quality of your writing (not to mention the quality of your grammar - it's so nice to see a semicolon used properly!).
All babbling aside, thank you so much for writing this, for it is now definitely one of my favorites!

WAY more interesting than the original. Shakespeare makes everything sound better, especially awkward cheesy dialog.

Extraordinarily well written. It conforms to Shakespeare's style remarkably well. I was very impressed. The word choice, iambic pentameter, structure was spot on. It was nigh perfect. :)

| The Darkness Factor chapter 1 . 1/17/2014
Whoa, this is really clever! I bet Shakespeare would've been all over their story if he'd been alive to see it. You did a great job of writing all the lines. I enjoyed it a lot.

As a fan of both the Bard and George Lucas's sci-fi masterpiece, I am dying. This a beautiful.
| Veritable Ocean chapter 1 . 3/31/2012
This is fabulous. True to the scene, true to Shakespeare, and a million times better than the actual script :).

Very well done; very Shakespeare-like. Your meter was well done. Funny to read.

Lordamercy, I don't know whether I should laugh or applaud! The very idea of prequel Anakin saying anything like this shoots me right into a fit of hysterics. On the other hand...it's just so much BETTER...
But - on the more serious side, I was pleasantly impressed, because I fully admit that when I clicked on this link I was expecting an atrocity and instead I got a perfectly credible Shakespeare imitation. :) Hands down the best specimen of poetry on . And now my mind is off remembering an article I once read comparing Padme to Desdemona in Othello...

Wow. This is so amazing! I love Shakespeare and this scene and you have combined them beautifully. It is exactly as Shakespeare would have written it and so believable! Astounding and Epic just begin to describe it. I love it!

I'm really very impressed. You know the ins and outs of Bard's language and apply them wonderfully to a scene that I really think could have made it into one of his plays had he ever branched out into sci-fi. ;) Bravo on a job well done!
