Kidz Notes - A Midsummer's Night's Dream (pg. 2)

Act Two - Scene One: This scene is set in the woods outside Athens. Puck (AKA Robin Goodfellow) is a naughty, playful spirit who works for the king. The fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, arrive and they are in the middle of a fight. They're arguing about a boy that Titania has taken prisoner because Oberon wants her to give the boy to him. Titania gets mad and leaves. Oberon thinks he should get even with his wife by playing a joke on her. He gets Puck to find a magic flower that he will put on Titania's eyes to make her fall in love with the first warm-blooded animal she sees when she wakes up. While Puck goes to find the flower, good old Demetrius shows up and Helena is tagging along with him. With the king watching, Demetrius rejects Helena - and he's pretty harsh about it. Tricky Oberon decides that he'll give Demetrius a dose of the magic flower, too.

Act Two - Scene Two: In a different part of the woods, Titania is sleeping. Oberon shows up and puts the love potion on her eyes. Lysander and Hermina - the couple on the run - show up and take a nap too. Puck shows up and mistakes them for Demetrius and Helena and puts the potion on their eyes instead. When Helena arrives in pursuit of Demetrius, Lysander wakes up, sees her, and falls in love with her - majorly dissing Hermina. However, Helena still wants Demetrius and tells Lysander to get lost. Helena leaves to find Demetrius and Lysander chases her. Hermina sleeps through the drama and wakes up after he leaves.

Act Three - Scene One: Quince, Bottom, and the other amateur actors are rehearsing the play in the woods. Puck runs into them on his way back from casting the love spells. He turns Bottom's head into a donkey head. Bottom doesn't notice but the other actors are scared and run away. Bottom is sad that everyone left and he tries to cheer himself up by singing a song. The song wakes up Queen Titania who falls head-over-heels in love with him. She orders her staff to cater to all of his wishes.

Act Three - Scene Two: Puck reports back to Oberon that the joke on his wife has worked and it's super-funny. Just then Demetrius enters with Helena and he's still rejecting her. Oberon realizes that Puck has given the potion to the wrong dude. He tries to fix the problem by putting the love potion on Demetrius' eyes after he conveniently decides to take a nap. Oberon tells Puck to bring Helena over so that she will be the first person Demetrius sees when he wakes up. Lysander arrives just as Demetrius wakes up and they both throw themselves at Helena. Helena just thinks they're making fun of her.
Hermina arrives and she thinks she's being Punk'd. She blames Helena for organizing this show to embarrass her. The two ladies argue and call each other names - as do the guys. Oberon uses an antidote to fix the situation - so Lysander and Hermia fall in love again and Demetrius stays in love with Helena.

Act Four - Scene One: Oberon laughs as he watches Titania arrive with her new donkey boyfriend. Oberon tells Puck that Titania has given in and will give the boy (that they fought about earlier) to him. Puck changes Bottom's head back to normal and Oberon gives the antidote to Titania. Titania's fairies cast a spell on Lysander and Hermia, Demetrius and Helena, and all of the tradesmen so that they will think that the weird events of the night are just dreams.
Theseus, Hippolyta, and Hermina's dad, Egeus arrive and Egeus demands that Lysander is killed. Theseus disagrees, and says that since Demetrius is in love with Helena now, all the couples (including Theseus and Hippolyta) should get married. They all leave for the big group wedding - except for Bottom, who's still mulling his "strange dream" over.

Act Four - Scene Two: The tradesmen/actors worry that the play won't be the same without Bottom, but Bottom arrives and announces that the show must go on.

Act Five - Scene One: The tradesmen put on their performance at the wedding. The actors screw everything up - and everyone laughs. After the play, everyone leaves except the King, Queen and Puck. Puck now turns to the audience (that's you) and thanks them for watching such a silly play. He tells them not to worry - it was only a dream.

    Something else you helped me with... umm... Well... you kind of... Made me better as a person. Well, now I stay on KW longer. I became a daredevil, I'm doing more risky things in life. If I hadn't pressed that "Post forum" button, I wouldn't be here. If I didn't enter the site for the first time and go to the chat, and say "Hello?", I wouldn't be here. If I didn't respond to the forum posts, I wouldn't be here. If I didn't message you back, or comment you back, I wouldn't be here.  You taught me that you should do things in your life while you can, even if you regret them or not. That maybe best friends do exist. You taught me that people should accept comfort instead of reclining it. From all the times we've talked on Animal Jam, to the times we've talked on Minecraft, it's made memories and affected the way fate will be in the future.  And if I never agreed with my mom to join the site, I wouldn't be sit here reading my book. I wouldn't stay up all night on weekends, waiting for your reply to a PM. I would be sitting in the living room watching Gone With the Wind with my mom. All of this because of Kidzworld. All of this because of you.  Thanks.

You've always been there for me when I'm down, and I've tried to protect you also. We joked with each other, fought with each other, but knew that we were always best friends inside still.  You've been on kidzworld for shorter than me, but you are amazing at roleplaying. You debate amazingly, and you have the the art of persuasion. If it weren't for CH, we wouldn't have met, and we wouldn't have made it to 500 and more pages of private messages.  And, for the whole year you've known me, I grant you the 2nd rank of friendship.  Level two on the friendship tier.  This is a great honor, and I hope you accept this award.  Again, thank you Ivy. For everything.  Here you go. Best friendship level number 2. This is a great, great honor and nobody, even my old best friend got this.  Two words - THANK YOU

    Not necessarily. Turning a year older doesn't mean one year closer to death. For example, I could die right now. It doesn't matter how old I am. I could have died before I was even one year old. But I didn't, cause I was lucky. :)
