Writer's Challenge I -- The Bard

by Christine Morgan


    From the obvious (MacBeth, A Midsummer Night's Dream) to the subtle (Othello), there has been a great deal of Shakespearean influence in Gargoyles.
    I've even done some of this myself -- my fanfic The Tempest is a retelling of the play of the same name, with Halcyon Renard as Prospero, his daughter Janine as Miranda, and Puck as Ariel.
    Now it's your turn.
    Your Challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to blend Gargoyles with more Shakespeare. What'll it be? Hamlet? Richard III? Much Ado About Nothing? Select a play and go wild!
