✦ ugh, i gotta find some pins that match this. seriously. it is probably mostly bc of the "a rose by any other name" thing, but i always associate roses with this play. they are beautiful, like romeo and juliet's love, yet there is danger in grasping them too quickly (the thorns), such as the way that romeo and juliet rushed into their love too quickly, which ultimatey led to their deaths. it is a great symbol and you will see it constantly throughout this board lol ✦
(Open with Aden) I smile down at the red roses in front of me. It has always been my favorite type of flower, and the most beautiful in my opinion. I reach out to touch one, my fingers brushing over the delicate petals. With my touch, the roses start to wither, turning an ugly shade of black. "No!" I cry. "Come back!" I concentrate the best I can to bring them back, but every attempt fails. "Uh... hello?" You say as you come up behind me. "Um... what are you doing?"
