Romeo and Juliet Resident – Act 1
This started as a simple one or two-line response in Sarge’s “Famous Quotes Updated for IW” thread in the InWorldz forums, but it kinda just didn’t stop growing, until I found a way out. 😉
“He jests at tattoo layers that never felt a bounce.”
[JULIET RESIDENT appears above at a mesh window (not quite rezzed completely). ROMEO continues]
“But, soft! what windlight through yonder transparent prim breaks?
It is the X coordinates above 256.0, and Juliet Resident is the sun.
llSetBuoyancy above 1.0, fair sun, and derez the envious moon,
Who is already buggy and malfunctioning in JIRA,
That thou, her mentor, art wearing skin shade 1 while she is wearing skin shade 4.
Be not her mentor, since she is IMing me;
Her outfit is still her newb one and her hair is not prim
And none but fools would wear that; bald cap immediately!
She has a female avatar, O, I wish she would partner me!
O, that she were in chat range!
She animates typing, yet I see nothing in chat; what of that?
Her eyes are steady; but Show Look At will help.
I am too bold, ’tis not to me she speaks. I am out of chat range.
Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven,
Her camera seems stuck, her eyes locked on the inside of her skybox
Star texture rotating in the sphere, again and again.
What if she changed her eye textures to stars, stars in her head?
The facelight on her cheek would shame those stars,
As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven
Would through the airy region stream so loud,
if only MP3Pro wasn’t selected by the DJ,
That breedables would sing and think she had hit Ctrl-Shift-Y.
See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand, her animation is a poor one.
O, that I were a glove upon that hand (worn on left hand),
That I might touch that cheek!”
O, speak again, facelight angel! for thou art
As glorious to this night, having a higher Z coordinate than me
As is a winged avatar wearing a prim halo
My camera looks up, and my eyes have rotated to mostly white
And I think you might have hit ‘Fly’ accidentally
As I watch you drift into the lazy puffing clouds
And sail upon the bosom of the air. Press ‘F’ again!”
“O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy last name and use a display name;
Or, if thou wilt not, partner me,
And I’ll no longer be a Resident.”
