Romeo and Juliet

                                              This is supposedly a "tragic" love story.

Loyalty and Disloyalty

1. A quality none of us humans actually have because we are not faithful and we are liars. 2. faithful to anything such as an oath or a commitment.

As you can see, none of the characters from this play "Romeo and Juliet" are loyal and they're just idiotic fictional human beings.

1. Unfaithful to your promises, commitments, and obligations

2. A quality most of us are so good at

Background

I chose loyalty and disloyalty as my theme. I could have picked a different option, but I decided not to. As you can see, I deeply hate this story "Romeo and Juliet" for many reasons. Besides the fact the characters are ignorant, they were also not  great at being humans. Loyalty is a character trait that now days, no one possesses. Most often, loyalty is broken from betrayal and loosing trust. This is where disloyalty comes in place.

Romeo and Juliet

Throughout this play, no one is loyal. In Act 3 scene 2, Juliet is defending her "husband", over her own cousin or shall I say "brother." Romeo killed Tybalt, who was now part of his family because he married Juliet. Romeo killed Tybalt because Tybalt killed Mercutio. Juliet heard about this news from The Nurse.

The Nurse said "Will you speak well of him that kill'd your cousin?" and Juliet responded "Shall I speak ill of him that is my husband?".  This represents the lack of loyalty that is represented because she is defending someone she just met over someone she knew for years and is part of her family.

Also, The Nurse was disloyal to Juliet when she made up her mind and told Juliet to marry Paris instead of Romeo. The nurse advises Juliet a couple of times in this play. She says that Juliet should consider Paris at the party - "Why he's a man of wax.." Later she tells Juliet that she should forget about Romeo, the relationship is as good as dead, and marry Paris. "Then, sine the case so stands as now it doth, I think it best you married with the county."

" A plague on both your houses" was an act of betrayal because Mercutio meant it to both households, which Romeo is in.

       My comparison to the play "Romeo and Juliet" are the television shows "Spongebob Squarepants,"  and "My Little Pony." I decided to pick these television shows because both of these shows represented the true meaning of loyalty no matter what.

    In "Spongebob Squarepants," Spongebob is always loyal to his best friend Patrick The Star. As you can see, the producers of this show are very intelligent because the actual star fish has no brain. So, the character Patrick is portrayed to be dumb. No matter how dumb Patrick was, Spongebob would always be loyal to him. Such as, jellyfishing in the Jellyfish Fields, bubble blowing, annoying Squidward, and watching Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy.  One of their most dangerous activities was Eating out and Partying at Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat.

      In "Romeo and Juliet," both families have made unwisely decisions. Same with "Spongebob Squarepants."  The only difference between both story lines is that in "Romeo and Juliet," there is no loyalty portrayed besides Benvolio. He is the only character from the play who is loyal.

    In "My Little Pony," Rainbow Dash carries the element of Loyalty because she was always loyal to her friends. Rainbow Dash is always by her friends side, and when the other ponies are in trouble. When they confront Nightmare Moon in the Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters, Twilight Sparkle declares that Rainbow Dash represents the Element of Loyalty. "Rainbow Dash, who could not abandon her friends for her own heart's desire, represents the spirit of loyalty!"

      "My Little Pony" and "Romeo and Juliet", are similar because in "My Little Pony," Rainbow Dash is always there for her friends, and Mercutio and Romeo are always by each others side when there is trouble.

Opinion

In my words, I believe none of the characters in "Romeo and Juliet," portrayed loyalty besides Benvolio. He was always by Romeo side and he did not assassinate, lied, or did any act of disloyalty in this play. ALL the characters made unwisely decisions in less than one day or two.
