Dating Dallas Winston

I feel like people over-romanticise Dally way too much! These are some *realistic* head canons for what dating him would be like. (just fyi  i understand he’s a fictional character so you are 100% free to interpret him any way you want and i probably sound like a pretentious dick so yeah:))
- He’s a bit of an asshole tbh. 
- He won’t buy you romantic shit like chocolates or flowers. He’s just not that type of guy
- He won’t call you every night or tell you he loves you every day
- He won’t hold your hand in public
- He will, however, beat the shit out of anyone who looks at you the wrong way
- He gives you his leather jacket when its cold, but he won’t make a big deal out of it
- He’ll just throw it at you, “yeah yeah, whatever, just take the stupid jacket already”
- He teaches you how to smoke and laughs when you inhale too much and burst into a coughing fit
- He has his days where he’s just unbearable to be around and he gets angry at the slightest thing
- However, he will never ever EVER hit, slap, punch, or lay a finger on you
- He’d call you names like “Baby”, and “Sweets”
- You two get drunk/high a whole lot
- It would take him a while to say it, but the first time he tells you he loves you is one of the most memorable days of your life
- Your the first person he’s ever truly loved, and its takes him a while to realise it
- He loves your sense of humour and how you can actually stand up for yourself
- Your the only person who can talk to him when he’s mad 
- Dating him is a fucking adventure and yall do some crazy shit, but at the end of the day you know he truly does love you

Nice Things People Forget About in The Outsiders

I see a lot of negative
posts about what people forget about in The Outsiders, so I decided to make a more positive one.

😄 Darry called Ponyboy “baby” when Ponyboy asked if he would be put into a boys home. Darry replied with “I don’t know, baby. I just don’t know.” How sweet! It makes me wanna cry!

😄 Ponyboy also had a lot of middle class friends at school.

😄 Ponyboy was upset because he thought he never called for Darry in the hospital, but Sodapop told him he actually did!

😄 Sodapop and Darry had never lost a fight before (I’m not sure if this is a “nice” thing, but hey, good for them!)

😄 After Dally died, Steve was about to fall to the ground while sobbing, but then Sodapop caught him and soothed him! 😭

😄 After Johmny died and Dallas ran off, Ponyboy was stumbling around town all by himself. Then a super nice stranger asked if he was ok, and gave him a ride.

😄 While in the stranger’s car Ponyboy got blood on the seat. The stranger just told Ponyboy not to worry about it, and that his car has been through much worse.

😄 Unlike the Shepard and Brumley gangs who will only get worse as they get older, Ponyboy knew that his friends and him will only get better as they grow up.

😄 Dallas had a cousin that lived in Windrixville. I feel like it’s nice to know that Dallas still had some family members still in contact with him.

😄 When Steve’s cousin came to visit, none of the boys were rude or talked dirty to her. The boys are respectful to girls at school and girls who are the family/cousin type.

😄 Jerry was a super duper awesome dude. While in the ambulance, Jerry let Ponyboy tell him everything that had happened, and Jerry did not judge him or Johnny and Dallas one bit. He also stayed with Ponyboy the entire time to make sure he was ok. Jerry is much more than just the fat guy that couldn’t fit through the window at the church!!!

😄 Dallas was afraid he had killed Ponyboy after hitting his back in order to stop the fire on his jacket. He was actually really upset about it, and was so happy when he saw Ponyboy was ok.

😄 Ponyboy hates it when women get sworn at or when they cry.

😄 Okay so in the beginning of the story Ponyboy says he doesn’t like people with green eyes. But after him and Cherry have a chat and he realizes that him and Cherry will always see the same sunset, he makes a comment that Cherry has green eyes. This shows how Ponyboy has learned that not all socs are bad, just like how not all people with green eyes are bad.


The Outsiders (1983) Dir. Francis Ford Coppola

“I used to talk about killing myself all the time, man. But I don’t wanna die now. It ain’t long enough. Sixteen years ain’t gonna be long enough. Hell, I wouldn’t care so much if there hadn’t been so many things I haven’t done yet. So many damn things I ain’t seen or done. That time when we were in Windrixville was the only time I’ve ever been away from my neighborhood.”

Froy Gutierrez as Sodapop Curtis

“He’s said to be “movie star handsome,” and has silky, dark gold hair (real tuff) that he combs back with dark brown (recklessly, dancing) eyes and a goofy grin that you can’t help but love”

Daniel Sharman or Liam Hemsworth as Darrel Curtis

“Darry is a large man, of 6’ 2" and he is broad shouldered. His hair is said to be like his father’s- dark brown that sticks out in the front of his head with a cowlick in the back. His eyes “are like two pieces of pale blue-green ice.”

Austin Butler as Dallas Winston

“Dallas Winston is said to have an elfish face with high cheekbones, a pointed chin, small, sharp animal teeth, and ears like a lynx. Dally didn’t like haircuts nor hair oil so his almost white-blond hair fell over his forehead in wisps. He had blazing blue eyes which Ponyboy describes as “cold with all the hatred in the world.”

“Two-Bit Mathews was around six feet tall, stocky in build, and was very proud of his long, rust-colored sideburns. He has grey eyes and was always wearing a wide grin.”
