I always thought Johnny self harmed. I mean, he talked about suicide, and it just always clicked that he did.
Personally I don’t think he did. He was beaten by his parents- I think that ultimatly was enough pain for him to want to harm himself. Even if he tried, it wouldn’t hurt half as much. I see a Soc self-harm though.
I am madly in love with Johnny Cade, Ponyboy Curtis, and Dallas Winston; I presume that I am going to go insane knowing that Ralph Macchio, C. Thomas Howell, and Matt Dillon are most likely my father’s age. Oh well, I will be forever alone. And I am prepared for it.
