Editorial: Star-Cross’d Lovers

We all know the classic story: two star-cross’d young people fall in love despite their familial circumstances, thereby feeding their hidden passion until it escalates, and both characters meet their untimely demise. But what if there was a happy ending?

In this updated version, instead of succumbing to a violent end, the protagonists flee the persecution of their home world in hopes of starting a new life together. After an arduous journey through the universe in a cramped spacecraft, our heroes have stumbled upon Earth. Join the stylish couple as they explore the wonders of our planet for the first time, together.

Come, gentle night;
Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night.

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.
