Main Characters: Benvolio/Mercutio, with a small side of Romeo/Juliet

Mercutio/Benvolio vid. [27 Jun 2010|06:21pm]

Multifandom Shakespeare's plays - Othello/Iago (Othello 1995); Mercutio/Benvolio (Romeo and Juliet 1968); Macbeth/Lady Macbeth (Macbeth 1971)
Music: Mad World; What I like about you; Fool Love
Plot? Iago is in love with Othello. And he is also mad (just a little bit).
Mercutio and Benvolio love each other.
Lady Macbeth loves Macbeth but she thinks he doesn't love her back. She tries anyway! (Reverse, also. Macbeth loves Lady Macbeth but he thinks she doesn't love him).

Requests [14 Jun 2010|11:05pm]

I just read Romeo and Juliet in my English class, and decided that I love Benvolio/Mercutio. I like to write fanfiction, and would like to write some featuring this wonderful pairing, but I can't really think of what to write it about.

Therefore, I come with a proposition.

Whenever you think of something that would make a good B/M story, from a one word prompt to a song to a long detailed plot, but you don't want to write it yourself, post it here. If you're like me and you want to write, but you can't think of anything, look at the requests here and if you see one you like, fill it.

Simple, right? Okay then.

Icons and musical [12 Jun 2010|07:26pm]


I'm new in the community also if I have been a fan of Romeo and Juliet for years. Just recently I became a Mercutio/Benvolio fan and thanks to Pargoletta's wonderful story Caro.
I do not come empy handed! I bring 15 icons from the Zeffirelli's movie. And yes, the icon with 'Caro' is dedicated to Pargoletta.

Icons under the cutCollapse )

And maybe you know it already or maybe not, but I know it is not a famous show/musical. I'm talking about the Italian musical Giulietta e Romeo by Cocciante. It is not bad : D actually I liked it very much and it's a pity there are not full video of all the musicals. (My sister was totally obsessed by it and looked for the videos everywhere).

The History Books Forgot About Us [08 Mar 2010|10:34pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Well, this community seems to be pretty much dead, but I'll post this anyways.  Hopefully somebody's out there to appreciate it! 

 A quick vignette in honor of Mercutio and Benvolio.  It's a re-imagining of the scene where they are looking for Romeo, but he's gone off to the balcony scene.  It goes on a little longer, and is much slashier of course.  Also, you'll have to assume that they saw him kissing Juliet at the party, because it's the only way their lack of surprise makes sense.  Partially inspired by the song "Samson" by Regina Spektor.

I hope this is allowed! [18 Jun 2009|04:15pm]

[ mood | blank ]

Hello! I'm new here. My name is Bishi. I am going into the tenth grade, and last year (it feels so weird to call it last year!) in English my teacher assigned us to write an extra scene for Romeo and Juliet. Everybody else wrote this beautiful love scenes between R and J, but of course I had to write mine about my two favorite characters. It originally was going to be slash, but then I reasoned that my teacher (who is far too conservative to be teaching at my rather insane performing arts high school) would probably fail me. That would be bad. So anyway, I'm really hoping that I'm allowed to post this even though it isn't strictly slash- if I'm not allowed, though, feel free to delete it. It's still about Mercutio and Benvolio, so it still counts...right? Pretty please? *crosses fingers*

Title: If I Ruled The World
Pairing: Mercutio/Benvolio
Rating: G
Disclaimer: I don't own Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio, Benvolio, Shakespeare, the Renaissance, England, Argentina, a car, a laptop, Johnny Depp, or a million dollars.
Summary: Mercutio has decided he wants to rule the world. Benvolio thinks it's a good plan, but they have different ideas on how the world should be ruled.

Title: A Country Cousin
Pairing: Mercutio/Benvolio
Rating: PG14 (?)
Disclaimer: I don't own Romeo & Juliet (do I even need this?)
A/N: my first attempt at slashing the bard, wrote it after 3 months of rehersals the original text is mostly from memory, so don't fault me if it's a little off, the language didn't come out like I wanted and not beta-ed so the mistakes are my own

"Hist, Mercutio, hist!"

New Fic Announcement! [18 Feb 2009|07:54am]

Hi everyone!

I've got a new story, if anyone is interested. It's a companion piece to my long AU novel, Caro. I'll put the header here, and then a link to the post in my own LJ.

Title: Far Off Thou Art, But Ever Nigh
Author: pargoletta
Fandom: Romeo and Juliet
Main Pairing: Benvolio/Mercutio, though under somewhat unfortunate circumstances.
Summary: In the throes of fresh grief, an elderly Benvolio sees a window open even as doors close.
Rating: PG.
Warnings: Part of the “Caro-verse,” so this does differ radically from the Romeo and Juliet you learned in school. Other than that . . . well, it's pretty sad, but no major warnings needed.

Far Off Thou Art, But Ever Nigh

New Story Announcement [13 Nov 2007|12:20am]

So I've finished a very long B/M story, called Caro, which I have previously referred to as Ye Olde Fanfic Novel. In the interests of not spamming this community, I'm not going to post it in all its 28-chapter, 70,000-word glory here. I'll be posting it at FFN under the name of Pargoletta, and at my own LJ. The introduction (containing warnings and housekeeping information and such) and the first chapter are available here.

If you're interested, stop on by!

I present to you, a little wallpaper I made.
You'll have to go to the link to get it because I haven't a clue on how to use the LJ Cut.
I'm planning on making another wallpaper soon, if only I had more screencaps! Anyone know where I might find some?

Here be the wallpaper: http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b149/e_took20002000/MercutioBackground.jpg

[ mood | giggly ]

Woo! I just joined this comm a little while ago, and my Ben/Mer shippyness has become fully fleddged!
We just finished the Franco S. version of R&J in class and I fell in love with Mercutio, but I never considered the pairing until I searched Mercutio in interests, hoping for some icons.
If anyone ever does an updated version of the play as a movie, I think Paul Bettany would do a good Mercutio. (www.paulbettany.net for more info)
Hopefully my little post will get this comm going again!
