What if Othello had realize Iago was terrible? What if King Lear was in outer space? What if Juliette just waited five more minutes? Where are the "lost scenes" to "As You Like It?"

To celebrate Shakespeare's Birthday, let's rewrite some of the Bard's best work with some small differences in key actions, characters, location, time period, point of view, etc. Use your imagination, but keep it connected to the original source in some way...this is fanfiction, after all!
