  • Synopsis: When Rosaline is a little girl, she likes flowers and pretty things. She likes old books, with cracked leather binding, with pages filled with fairy tales or intrigues or household accounts. She likes the curve of her cousin’s smile. She likes the sound of her laugh. She likes the sound of her name. She sounds it out. Juliet. Juli-et. It rhymes with well-met, regret. It rhymes with poetry that has not been written yet.

Mercutio and Allegra by Cornadopia (link)

  • Recommended by: iDrinkYourMilkshake
  • Status: Complete
  • 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.
  • Pairing: Mercutio/OC
  • Comments: Sure, it sounds potentially cliched, 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.

  • Pairing: Mercutio/Benvolio
  • Comments: If you even needed proof that the play is heartbreaking but also beautiful, this is it. And Mercutio is pitched just right.
