Even though he killed some one he was still saving Pony. Pony thinks “Next thing I knew I woke up on the pavement beside the fountain”(p.56) after he almost drown. Johnny saved Pony from being drowned. He helped Pony get the kids out of the burning church. This quote from the book states Johnny saved kids from dying in a burning church“the door was blocked by flames, pushed open the window and tossed out the nearest kid.”(p.92) It shows that he saved kids from burning in a church.
They were drowning you, Pony. They might have killed you” (p. 57). Johnny had no choice because the Socs were drunk and Pony was at the point of almost dying. Following this, when Johnny took out his switchblade and killed Bob, blood was everywhere. For instance, “I killed him,” he said slowly.
After Johnny had killed Bob, and they ran away, Johnny says something to Ponyboy in the church that surprises him. After Johnny left to get supplies, he says, “We’re gonna cut our hair, and your gonna bleach yours.” (71) Johnny saying this, shows that he is starting to take action after what had happened at the park. It shows that reality is hitting Johnny, and this actually makes him slightly tougher in a way. Johnny, being a shy person usually doesn’t take action to solve the problem at han, but by doing this, it shows he is less soft and more hardy than we thought. After that, Ponyboy finds himself in a situation that he personally can’t back out of.
Everyone was sad after Johnny’s death, but mostly Ponyboy and Dally. Later that day we had to go to a rumble, which it would be greasers against some Socs. We won, but some of us got hurt, especially dally. Dally couldn’t stop thinking about Johnny’s death, it hurt him a lot because he loved him as a brother. Dally didn’t wanna live any longer because the only thing he really loved was Johnny and that was gone already so he said “it wasn’t worth to live any longer”.
One night Ponyboy goes out with his buddies Johnny and Dally were they sneak into a drive in movie, where they see 2 girls. Ponyboy starts talking to one of the girls cherry who tells him”things are rough all over.”(35) Ponyboy doesn't believe this though because he thinks money can solve all their problems. Cherry was trying to tell ponyboy that everyone has problems even ones he has never heard of before. This didn't make sense to Ponyboy yet. After running from the police when johnny stabbed Bob a soc they find themselves in an abandoned church.

An Irony is evident in the eighth chapter of The Great Gatsby, due to the unexpected situation, when Wilson kills Gatsby; this episode is Ironic because of multiple reasons; At first readers should have expected instead for Tom to kill him due to the fact that Gatsby was having an affair with Daisy. On the other hand Wilson thinks when he kills Gatsby that he is avenging his wife 's deaths but that 's simply a misunderstanding and finally the murderer is the only character who seems to care about conventional morality and rules of socially acceptable behavior. In chapter eight Gatsby states that: "He couldn 't possibly leave Daisy until he knew what she was going to do. He was clutching at some last hope and I couldn 't bear to shake him free" (155). Through this quote it is evident the deep affection and love.
He cannot even fight for a worthy cause dear to his heart, but Fortinbras’ men die for a meaningless reason. Shakespeare uses particular words such as “death” (4.4.55), “danger dare” (4.4.55), “eggshell” (4.4.56), and “honor” (4.4.59) to show that Fortinbras’ men are braver than Hamlet since they take action. For this, Hamlet is irritated since they are fighting for an eggshell, a simple and useless item. However, this irritation sparks a realization which allows a powerful ending to the soliloquy. Hamlet vows to only have “bloody” (4.4.69) thoughts.

When Holden found out about the tragic death of his younger brother, Allie, he was devastated. He ‘slept in the garage’ and ‘broke all the goddam windows’.
Thunder slammed him on the ground, and whispering in his ear, said, “Next time before you pick on someone who has skinchanger, elf and dragon blood racing through their veins, you should use that head that your mummy gave you. And count yourself lucky that my twin brother Hawk wasn’t here.” “Thunder, I think he is lucky not to be dead.” Thunder dropped the whimpering Mickul, who ran as fast as his legs could carry him, as her father came into sight. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that, right?” “No, you shouldn’t have, but I am surprised you held yourself back that well.” Her father was a skinchanger and he provided most of the meat and protection for the village. Without him, The village wouldn’t have been standing as it was then.
