Day #4: Your favourite heroine

Again, more than one. Because this is me.

Juliet from Romeo and Juliet. I love how she is simultaneously mature and immature, I love how she doesn't take Romeo's bullshit in the balcony scene, and this is one of the most gorgeous speeches of all time. I love Mercutio's raw wit and Benvolio's sweetness and how Friar Laurence is an adorable failbot, but Juliet is, to me, the play's heart and emotional core. And it's her lines on waking up to find Romeo dead that made me cry buckets the first time I encountered this play.

Beatrice from Much Ado About Nothing. How can you not love Beatrice? She's clever, witty, independent, and fiercely loyal. The scene between her and Benedick after Hero's failed wedding gets me every single time. I would eat his heart in the market-place. There is nothing about Beatrice that doesn't just make me happy.
