    Eponine is having a lousy night working the crowd at her usual speakeasy when in wanders a wide-eyed little rich girl, who promptly gets herself in a spot of trouble. Even the devil has to do a good deed sometimes.

    (1920s Chicago AU/slight crossover with Some Like It Hot, but you don’t need to know the fandom.)

    Summary

    There is no simple word like beloved for what he feels for Tybalt's face, that tightening in his chest of mingled hatred and reluctant fondness, the rush of excitement whenever they cross blades or words. Mercutio has always won, before, the better fighter on both battlefields.

    Mercutio opens his eyes after the duel.

    Summary

    You're going to die in your best friend's arms. And you play along because it's funny, because it's written down, you've memorized it, it's all you know. - "Planet of Love," Richard Siken

    What if Mercutio sees the future?

    (Based on the 2013 Italian musical version, Romeo e Giulietta - Ama e Cambia il Mondo.)

    Rosaline has always had too much water in her nature, and her cousin Juliet too much air.

    Summary

    Raoul de Gardefeu pointedly refuses to have any life-altering realizations in the aftermath of another night drinking with Bobinet, even if neither of them has any trousers. Also, Bobinet is bad at shaving.

    Summary

    After he leaves Romeo to dream of Julia and Benvolio to his bed, Mercutio finds someone else waiting for him on the steps of his brother's house.

    Zorzi gave a snort. "You, earthbound? Wingèd Mercury himself would have a devil of a time to catch you in one of your moods."

    "That is one thing," said Mercutio, slipping a companionable arm around Zorzi's shoulders, square and strong under the plain brown velvet of his doublet. A curl of hair caught and twisted around Mercutio's fingers. "But Romeo flies on love's light wings, and love is as true a material as wax: it melts in the sunlight."

    (Contains some misogyny, homophobia, and anti-Semitism as one might expect from the period and setting.)

    Summary

    Montparnasse attends the 1838 premiere of Hector Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini, at which two things happen: a riot breaks out and he encounters an old friend. These are not entirely disconnected occurrences.

    Summary

    He licks his lips, tasting paint, and imagines he can still taste the salt of his tears, even though he had scrubbed them off the night before, as if with them he could scrub away his grief, wash it away with his paint to mix with the muck of the city, forgotten.

    Giulietta and Tybalt's feline henchman have an encounter the day after Tybalt's death. Gen, although you could also read it as very subtextual post-slash if that's your thing.

    (Based on the recent Italian production of the Presgurvic musical.)

    Summary

    Ficlets written for three-sentence ficlet memes, cleaned up to be, uh, more than three sentences but with readable punctuation. An assortment of bizarre AUs, random pairings, and kinks.

    Summary

    No one noticed the one man who left the city gates on foot, following a flock of starlings winging towards Mantua.

    A sequel of sorts to sail upon the bosom of the air: a few things that might have happened next.

    Summary

    For drcalvin: "do write us crackfic where Mercutio gives everyone in Verona sexually transmitted wings!"

    Less...cracky than originally intended. More of a fairytale fix-it. Where everyone in Verona has sexually transmitted wings.

    Summary

    Romeo dreams airy dreams, as Mercutio dances and flirts with fire, and Benvolio is only poor, simple earth, loyal and steady, at once caught between them and too plain for either of them to truly notice.

    A coda to the kiss-chase scene in the Hungarian musical production.

    Summary

    "I have had my fill of Montague lies and found them not to my taste; may I not see if Capulet lies are the sweeter?"

    Romeo's ex-girlfriend Rosa is pissed and heartbroken; Tybalt is convenient.

    (Based on the Hungarian musical production; Rosa's unique to it, I think.)

    Summary

    The aftermath of Tybalt's first visit to a brothel, and the seeds of his rift with Julia. Based on the Hungarian production.

    (No Tybalt/Julia in this, but there is offscreen reference to Tybalt having somewhat traumatic sex that one could probably argue isn't fully consensual, and he's 14 and hence underage by most standards today.)
