Cut this line from the trope "Threatening Mediator," about the Prince catching Benvolio and Tybalt "trash talking with their swords out" and the Prince's threat being "that any more swordplay in public will result in loss of titles, demoting them to peasants; it's super effective."

First of all, more than half of the combatants already are peasants, so demoting them is silly, second of all, Tybalt and Mercutio aren't trash talking, but fighting (Benvolio comes around to beg them to stop fighting, and then the Lords enter yelling that they want in on the fight, too), and lastly, I don't see how the Prince's line "If ever you disturb our streets again, your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace" can be interpreted as "loss of titles" instead of "loss of life."

Shakespearian literature does not get cut under our policies. Sheesh, what is wrong with people?

I think they're trying to prove a point to Fast Eddie. Or just jumping to conclusions.

A combination of both, perhaps? I think all that's called "trolling."

The person involved was trying to make a point. The idea was that the current policy is selectively enforced and overly harsh, I believe. I don't think he was trolling at the very least.

Damn, I added to the cutlist before I was done reading. Sorry.

Cut request was declined.

Do we really need to have Paris for Romantic False Lead? Who would be dumb enough to actually think that he might get together with Juliet? If no one replies, I'll be adding "In-universe:" before it.

I'm pretty sure the full title is actually The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet rather than The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Which, as you can see, is even longer.

I'm probably going to change it soon, unless someone tells me I'm wrong here.

Does anyone else think the "quick outline" in the description should go under the Laconic page?

It's way too long for the Laconic page.

Someone want to explain the American Civil War entry? Is there some obscure "re-imagining" I've never heard of?

notreallyatroper: Is the Romeo + Juliet adaption different enough to warrant its own page?
