Five Chaotic “Midsummer Night’s Dream” Memes

Is anyone else going a little stircrazy? Sure, it might be tempting to flee to the woods with your forbidden fiance, but we probably shouldn’t. Live through these memes instead.

 

She’s Not Wrong

I slept on Hermia for a long time, and I couldn’t regret that more. Listen. She and Lysander are in love, and she thinks he’s a perfectly appropriate suitor. So what does she do? Tells her father if he wants her to marry Demetrius that much he might just have to have her executed. Says the same to the king. Oh, I’ve gotta do what my dad says or die? I guess I’ll die. This woman is not daunted by anything. How many of us have wanted to flee into the woods and leave society behind? Hermia lives her truth.

 

Loyalty is a Virtue?

I mean yeah, obviously I want Helena to have a lot more self worth. She tells Demetrius about his last chance to marry someone else. Even if you want to get on someone’s good side, that is an apocalyptically self sabotaging decision. And like, yeah, he treats her really badly. He should definitely break his ankle in the forest and never be found. Words can’t convey my disdain. But I kinda respect Helena, in a weird way. She may not be as lucky as Hermia, but she’s just as determinedly loyal.

 

Sometimes the Forest is Just Like That

So you’re Hermia. You’ve been told, on pain of death, to marry this obsessed jerk. You and bae are running off to elope. You kind of can’t get dudes to leave you alone. Suddenly you wake up in the middle of nowhere, and everyone, including your fiance, is in love with your best friend. Kinda sounds like highschool? They’re in the forest, though, and Helena’s not exactly happy either. Everyone’s lost their minds, and somehow this is your fault? Not the best long weekend ever, that’s all I’m saying.

 

Great Plan

I can’t help feeling that Oberon kind of should have seen this coming. Think about it, even if you think there’s only one couple in the forest. This poor girl’s love doesn’t care about her. Let’s fix it. Do something nice. Who am I going to get to do this for me? The most chaotic creature in existence? Of course! What could go wrong! This is honestly equivalent to you wanting your friends to get together and deputizing your cat.

 

Sounds Fake But Okay

So you’re Helena. Your best friend is bailing to be with her true love. But the man you love loves her. So you betray her like, a little bit (okay, a lot). The man you love, who’s treated you like human garbage up until now, suddenly professes his undying love. You’re understandably suspicious. Then, boom! Here’s your friend’s fiance. You can count on him for some sense. Nope, he claims to love you too. She knows you betrayed her. Why wouldn’t she want vengeance?
