A plague o' both your houses!
The pivotal scene from William Shakespear's "Romeo and Juliet". Tybalt has just stabbed Mercutio, which triggers all the violence and tragedy that follows.
About this creation
For the Lethal Donuts entry for the 2011 MocAthalon Category 6: Classic Literature.

This scene depicts the end of Mercutio's life after being stabbed by Tybalt, the "Prince of Cats". Mercutio lies dying in Benvolio's lap, while Tybalt is pulled back by some other Capulets. Romeo's anger has begun to rise and soon he will slay Tybalt in retribution.



Here Mercutio quips "Ask for me tomorrow, and you'll find me a grave man." Mercutio was always one of my favorite characters in literature. His quirkiness and extreme loyalty to his friends catalyze the event that turn Romeo and Juliet into a tragedy. His death at the beginning of Act III is the first in the chain that ends with the death of Romeo and Juliet by suicide.


The Montagues (right to left): Benvolio, Romeo, Mercutio

Mercutio was not a Montague, but was friends with Romeo and Benvolio, at least in part because of his dislike for Tybalt.


The Capulets (right to left): Gregory, Tybalt, Sampson

Tybalt is the primary antagonist of the play. He is depicted as very hot-headed and the only scene in which he does not engage in violence is due to the intervention of his uncle, Juliet's father. Gregory and Sampson are two servants of the Capulets and cause the opening scene's quarrel by insulting Abram, one of the Montague's servants. In Baz Luhrmann's modernized 1996 version, William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, the characters Gregory and Sampson are instead servants of the Montagues, and Abram is a servant of the Capulets.


A better shot of the fountain. I was experimenting with curved walls and water elements, while not wanting to take away from the characters.

Well off to attempt one more build before the competition ends. Yet another thank-you to the judges and the Sterlings for making this event possible.

Uh, it's really good, I give it a 4, but you said right to left: Benvolio, Romeo, Mercutio. But earlier you showed what you said was Benvolio dying. Just thought you may want to know.
