You know the names of old:
Romeo and Juliet
Tristan and Isolde
Hero and Leander
Lancelot and Guinevere
Paris and Helen
Mark Antony and Cleopatra
Now's your chance to add a pair of names to the roster!
The delightful Janelle of Me & Mia
The phrase 'star-crossed lovers' was coined in the prologue of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet:
"From forth the fatal loins of these two foes,
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life"
We're leaving the term open to interpretation.
You can put your own spin on a classic story
Create a modern retelling
Craft your very own modern star-crossed lovers.
Plus, you can close your story with any ending you like. Give your lovers a set of matching tombstones or a running chance at Happily Ever After. Their fate is in your hands!
