Heart of Hearts
Horatio: Hamlet, you’re gonna hate yourself in the morning if you keep staying up this late.
Hamlet: Jokes on you. I’m going to hate myself in the morning no matter what.
i keep on thinking “hamlet high school AU” but i never know what i mean
okay this is it
Hamlet: I’m 70% gay, 30% cynical and about 10% star-crossed.
Horatio: But… that makes 110%.
Hamlet: I’M ALSO OVERLY DRAMATIC AND TEND TO EXAGGERATE OKAY
Why I relate to Horatio:
•Done with everyone’s drama
•Ride or die friend
Why I relate to Hamlet:
•A little extra
•G A Y
•Needs hugs and many naps
Um okay one problem with this post, Hamlet takes the time to go have a pipe ready and spends like 5 minutes bating R&G into the big reveal of “How dare you try to play me like this pipe"and you’d call him just a little extra?
You have a fair point.
My aesthetic is a Shakespeare scholar arguing that Hamlet would have absolutely borrowed Horatio’s lecture notes because Horatio is clearly the better student.
(which the book I’m reading is)
I had to read Hamlet for college and I’m glad that everyone in this trash website agrees that Hamlet x Horatio is a thing.
Hamlet to Horatio in The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet by Myrlin A. Hermes
Things I am never ever going to get over:
• The fact that the scene at the end of Hamlet where Horatio goes to drink the poison to join Hamlet in death is an exact perfect parallel of the scene at the end of Romeo & Juliet where Juliet goes to drink the poison to join Romeo in death, which is not at all a coincidence.
• The fact that the entire play Horatio is calm and level-headed but the moment Hamlet is dying all that goes out the window as he becomes a grief-stricken mess, completely unprepared and unwilling to live without Hamlet.
• The fact that the word “sweet” has historical significance as a deliberate indicator of homosexual love and how that means the inclusion of “sweet prince” at the end of the play is a completely deliberate indication that Hamlet and Horatio were in love.
