- "That damn playwright cursed us when he wrote our story with a quill from a Phoenix feather."
- —Juliet explaining how Shakespeare cursed the couple.[src]
William Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet's story with a quill from the feather of a Phoenix. This unwittingly caused the couple to be cursed into an endless cycle, where they repeatedly met, fell in love, married and then separated by a tragic death in every lifetime. The process went on for more than four hundred years. The couple also kept their memories of their previous incarnations intact, but their love never wavered in spite of the tragic cycle. Because of their epic love story, they became famous among Cupids as well as the mortal world.
Breaking the Time Loop
In 2008, the two hope that by being married in a ceremony officiated by a Charmed One would break the curse, making it possible for them to move on from the time loop. In their explanation of the event, Juliet gives a little perspective to Phoebe Halliwell on the whole mass wedding thing. Phoebe then decides to marry the two lovers, with encouraging words from her husband Coop Halliwell.
