The following is a fan created scene based off of the play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare. I wrote this scene to explain the fight between Mercutio and Tybalt. Part of Shakespeare’s brilliance in his writing was his ability to allow his fans to decide the mood and personality of a character in the play. During the scene of the fight between Mercutio and Tybalt, Shakespeare had it so the fans could decide if they were literally fighting or if they were being humorous with each other. The fan made scene below is taken place before the fight, right after Mercutio and Romeo crashed an important party. The scene features only Mercutio and Tybalt outside after the party has ended and Romeo left to see his beloved Juliet. The following scene is all fan based and is not to be compared to the actual play. Please enjoy reading.

Mercutio walks away from the party and Tybalt pursues him


Tybalt: Hold your ground you rat! I shall make sure thou must not leave this place with tail in tact!


Mercutio turns around towards Tybalt


Mercutio: Do you expect a fight my old friend? You have claimed that thou shall not get away before but yet here I stand even taller than before! You are like a lion with a large roar but no claws!


Both Mercutio and Tybalt draw their swords


Tybalt: Hold thou tongue unlessthou want it torn from their mouth! This disrespect shall be stopped or so help me GOD!


Mercutio and Tybalt clash swords


Mercutio: If thou were able to stop me before then thou would have stopped me already?! What makes thee hold back thy rage?


Mercutio and Tybalt’s swords clash again


Tybalt: Guilt my feeble friend. Though thou have disgraced me, I still never find any courage to kill a rat like you. Past encounters between the two of us I think has proved that we do contain some type of friendship. Does one not agree?


Mercutio and Tybalt lower their swords and step back


Mercutio: It may seem plausible. Though our friendship is a rivalry, we have both shown mercy towards each other. Everyone has seen it and everybody knows it.


Mercutio bows in respect towards Tybalt as both put away their swords


Mercutio: And for that, this rat must scamper off. I shall wait to nibble at thee anon, Tybalt. May the sun shine again on a new day. Until then, good morrow.


Exit Mercutio


Tybalt: And same to thee, young Mercutio.


Tybalt bows in respect towards Mercutio after he has exited


Tybalt: I pray that our paths may cross again.


Exit Tybalt
