Mercutio and Allegra by Cornadopia (whose work can be found here.
  • Synopsis: During the story of "Romeo and Juliet", Romeo's invulnerable friend Mercutio, who is constantly professing his idea that love is BS, finds and falls in love with a girl of the Capulet house. Sure, it sounds potentially Mary-Sue-ish, but it proves not to be; the character of Allegra and her rebellion against the family feud, combined with impressive canon-era dialogue, tons of humor and a madly passionate romance make it a very worthy and enjoyable read.
