Jim is Romeo and Spock is like Juliet, but is a guy. Jim's family is in a bitter conflict with Spock's, which makes Sarek reluctant to negotiate for peace for them, for they are on equal stances of power. Jim is the rebel of the family, reluctant for war and who has his eye on one of the girls that is Spock's personal servent. Spock lives a life inside his home and is hardly ever allowed to leave it and is about to be forced into an engagement and marriage against his will to T'Pring, the President's personal assistant. When McCoy/Mercutio is invited to the betrothal party, he takes Jim with him where Kirk falls in love with Spock and Spock with him. Spock knows that he will soon be bonded to T'Pring if he does nothing; Kirk sneaks to Spock's balconey; they marry against Sarek's will, who goes into a rage; Amanda doesn't know what to do or say to Spock; Spock fakes his death; Kirk goes to him.
BONUS: If all the other main characters are servants to Kirk, Spock, or McCoy. Spock has one or both of the girls and the others are split between McCoy and Kirk.
BONUS: If you can do this as a play sticking closely to the original story
BONUS: You do this without anybody dying
BONUS: Sybok is like Tybalt, but not quite as violent.
BONUS: Uhura or Chapel is the servant that Kirk has his eye on, but they have their eye on Spock without Spock liking them. He's nice to them, but isn't interested in women at all. Whichever girl is interested also has to be the role of the nurse from the original R+J.
MEGA BONUS: If one of the servants is also the preist who marries Kirk and Spock.
MUST: They have to both be guys
I prefer TOS or AU, but if you really wan Abrams, it's alright, so long as Spock and Uhura are totally NOT together.
not intended to plagerize the Romeo and Juliet challenge!! Not.
