Dear Prince Escalus, Good day, your highness. I am writing this letter to seek for your assistance. You may have known that the Capulets and the Montagues have a long-standing feud. As time passes by, this feud is getting worse. Many innocent civilians got affected and lost their lives. For the citizens of Verona to live a peaceful life, this has to end. I believe we should work together in fixing thisem for we share a common goal. These past few weeks, the feud has flared up once again. Tybalt, nephew to Lady Capulet, fell dead against Romeo, the son of the Montagues. But while everyone's busy fighting, Romeo and Juliet fell deeply in love with each other. The day Tybalt died, was the day Romeo and Juliet exchanged their vows. Now as a result of Tybalt's death, Romeo has been banished to Mantua. He can no longer be with Juliet. Juliet is due to marry Count Paris this coming Thursday and I see no good in this wedding. Juliet will just be fooling Count Paris and herself as well for her heart beats only for Romeo and no one else. To forever mend this feud, I wish for you, our beloved Prince, to reconsider the verdict you have inflicted on Romeo. I think it will be best to have Romeo and Juliet together for I believe this is the only way to mend this. The love Romeo and Juliet has can soften the hearts of their parents. And besides, if Juliet conceives a child with the blood of Capulet and Montague running through its veins, they might consider to reconcile for their grandchild. This child will pass down love rather than hate to the next generations of Capulet and Montague and this feud will just be a part of history. After all, only love can drive out hate.
Sincerely,
Friar

    Dear My Love Juliet, Oh my Sweat, what a treacherous, remorseful event that has occurred. I am very sorry. I have slain your cousin Tybalt. I did not mean to be the force that killed your cousin, it was from mere impetuous thoughts belonging to me that lead to his slaying. You must be shocked and I don’t blame you as I am too in utter disbelief. I would have never done this in a million lifetimes. Yet this death did have a purpose. Your cousin Tybalt killed my friend Mercutio, kinsman of the…

    married to the brave Romeo of the Montague family, the family whom you knew that I hated. O, but Mother, you must understand, when I first saw my dear Romeo, I just knew that we were meant for each other as husband and wife. There, you now know of my marriage, but you must also know that with it, we could cease the feud between our family and the Montague’s. This is why I cannot possibly marry the Count on the morn of Thursday. I pray to thee, mother, send me to Mantua where Romeo hath fled. Alternatively…

    Rosaline is the niece of Lord Capulet whom Romeo falls in love with prior to the play, Romeo and Juliet; however, she doesn’t reciprocate Romeo’s feelings as she has chosen to remain celibate. In most film adaptations, she is usually omitted, yet Romeo is always grieving for his rejected love at the beginning of every adaption. Now, this is rather paradoxical as Rosaline is not important enough to be portrayed by an actor, yet she is always mentioned by Romeo. So would anything be gained or lost if…
