The Fall of Mercutio

Rated: M/E

Summary: What’s in a name? His mother had called him her little starboy for as long as he could remember. Sometimes Jellal wondered if the nickname was enough to part the clouds of his other names - the ones assigned to him at birth.

Content warnings: Graphic violence, drug use, implied/referenced rape, implied/referenced eating disorders.

Notes: I love mafia AU’s and I’m heavily influenced by the 1996 Baz Luhrman adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.

  • Thank you so much to @marya-nikolaevna for her Spanish translations of dialog!

Update as of today (5/26/17): So this is the absolute end. I’m still not 100% pleased and I do think some areas needed more fleshing out but eh. I need to move on with my life. Thanks for reading!
