I love Romeo & Juliet even though it's a totally fucked up story and I never ever condone suicide pacts or marrying at 13 after knowing each other for two days.

The prose is beautiful and it makes my heart ache.

And I don't care what anyone says, the '96 version of Romeo + Juliet is my fave. Some of the scenes fucking KILL me with the romance-y atmosphere.
