Hey. Someone had to post something here eventually. This is a version of the fight between Dido Aeneas in Act IV that I wrote with kellibus  a few months ago. Have fun. Here it is:

(Aeneas guiltily walks towards the Carthaginian citadel to mention that he is leaving her and her city and finds Dido outside in the threshold with a pissed off expression, arms crossed over chest and tapping foot)

D: You traitor! How could you!? Does our love mean nothing? Does everything that I've sacrificed mean nothing? My reputation is ruined, my people hate me, and my city is imcomplete! Are you just going to leave me vulnerable to attack by Pygmalion or let me be taken in chains by Iarbas? (Aeneas thinks: hmmm, should've tried chains...) You plan to leave me with nothing don't you!? Not even a son!

A: Wait a minute! A so-

D: Quiet! Did you really think you could do all of this and not have me notice!?-My window faces the port!! (Plus Anna has the hots for you and watches your every move.) Did you really think you would be able to sneak away from my own kingdom! and I wouldn't be able to notice? You have a whole fleet of ships!!

A: Ships? What ships? Ooohh, those ships, hehe, Funny story. You see, I was with my faithful Achates, polishing my gleaming sword, having a good time when Mercury glided through the walls. Yeah. Really. He did. I swear on our..our marriage. And he told me...Well he told me t-to screw you and leave, and since I've already done half of that, I see no reason in staying here any longer. So, thanks for everything. It's been a great winter, really it has. Love your caves. Here, here's 20 bucks.

(Dido opens her mouth to speak. Aeneas raises his hand to stop her. Tears swell in her eyes.)

A: No, no. This is one time I don't want to hear you wailing-I have to go.

(Dido gives "look of death")

D: You son of a bitch! (Venus hears and Cupid restrains her from killing Dido) What were you, raised by Hyrcanian tigers--or wolves--or something? Who do you think I am? I am the queen!

A: (mumbles under his breath) Are you done yet?

D: Has visions he says. Says the gods have told him. If there were just gods that smite him now! Does he even care about us? No! *gollum-gollum* (voice gets more serious) Fine. Go. Take your ships and leave. I hope you die! I hope you crash on the rocks. And as you do, I hope you call out my name--as you did last night--'cause I won't be there to help you. And even if I'm dead, my soul will still be with you--haunting you. MWAH-ha-ha-ha!!

(Dido breaks into tears and runs back into the citadel)

A: Finally! I thought she'd never shut up! Hey guys, let's go!

(Aeneas turns and walks towards his awaiting fleet at the port with his men. Dido trips on the top step. Gets caught by her attendants)

Well there it is.
