Just about died laughing. I do have some friends that think that  Hamlet/Horatio is totally a thing.

Speaking as a crazy Shakespearian nerd, I've actually seen Mercutio/Benvolio slightly more than Romeo/Mercutio. Although, Mercutio can be shipped with basically anyone in that play. Love the sentiment behind this, though.

Women weren't allowed to see the original plays, due to the sexist nature of that period

But if they were allowed, and if they sneaked in, this would totally be the result!

And this may sound gross, but I think Romeo/Benvolio would have a higher shipping rate.
Seriously, the amount of incest you see on tumblr these days... yuck.

You do realize Mercutio/Tybalt makes more sense. At least to me.
JUST SAYING.

I never got the fan pairing thing. I don't mind it being done lightly, but when people start taking it seriously, it smacks too much of "I know better than the creators" for my tastes. Of course, Shakespear did more borrowing than creating...

You do realize that in Shakespearean England, homosexuality was seen as a crime. Even as late as the 1970s, most people thought Liberace was straight (today, he's seen as THE example of being flamboyantly gay). Back then, Elton John had to become the world's biggest star just to admit he was gay and his popularity took a serious hit in Middle America because of that.

What I'm trying to say is that I don't think women in Shakespearean time even thought about the possibility of guy on guy romance.
