summer w / the gang hcs ☀️

Summer’s coming soon! In honor of it, here are some summer headcanons for you guys <3

☀️ Steve really likes washing cars at this time of year.

☀️  SOAP FIGHTS W / STEVE AND THE REST OF THE GANG WHILE WASHING THESE CARS

☀️  Lots of popsicle making with Darry.

☀️  Sodapop honestly loves making lemonade with you for some reason.

☀️  Dallas sometimes steals lemons to screw with the both of you.

☀️  Two-Bit makes race tracks out of pool noodles.

☀️  Ponyboy and Johnny make flower crowns with you.

☀️  Dallas really likes swimming??

☀️  Johnny enjoys blowing bubbles.

☀️  All of you guys get together to watch a bunch of movies on days where you don’t have anything planned.

☀️  Lots of pizza is ordered.

☀️  You guys sneak out to abandoned places to watch random fireworks.

☀️  Ponyboy takes a bunch of polaroid pictures with you and the gang.

☀️  On days when there’s rain, you guys all go outside to dance around ‘n stuff. (EMBRACE THE WEATHER.)

☀️  Dallas loves complaining about the heat.

(CUE THE SUNGLASSES, you know which ones I’m talking about.)

☀️  ‘It’s so goddamn hot.’

☀️  *PUTS ON SUNGLASSES*

☀️  Lots of goofs, gaffs, and laughs this summer.

☀️  Everyone participates in a game of tag, surprisingly even Dallas, though nobody can actually tell that he’s playing.

☀️  He’ll nudge your shoulder and angrily whisper ‘tag.’ (LMAO)

☀️  And everyone’s confused about ‘who’s it’ like??

☀️  WHEN YOU TAG SOMEONE, THEY’RE ALL LIKE ‘WAIT, WHO TAGGED YOU?’ AND YOU JUST SMIRK.

☀️  You convinced Dallas to pay you for not telling anyone that he was actually secretly playing.

☀️  Two-Bit gets the whole gang together to bake you ‘summer themed’ goodies.

☀️  Like he’ll get Darry to bake cookies or something and then the gang would decorate them as beach balls, suns, sunglasses, etc.

☀️  SODAPOP AND STEVE PAINT YOUR NAILS.

☀️  Johnny likes getting new flavors of ice cream to share with you.

The summer feels everlasting and brings all of you guys together as wonderful buddies ☀️

  • Ponyboy, obviously trying to get Cherry's attention, laying on top of a piano in the schools music room: well hello, what a coincidence it is to meet you here
Short Attention Span

Request: Prefs of the boys dating a girl with a short attention span please?

Ponyboy: Pony’s exactly the same way in many aspects as you, including your short attention span. You’d take turns snapping each other back into reality, and nine times out of ten you’d chuckle at each other just knowing that this quality was just another thing you loved about each other.

Two-Bit: Two-Bit is a lot like how Pony is, but sometimes when you’d zone out during one of his stories he’d see how many funny faces he could make at you or how many weird things he could say to you before you realized/noticed.

Darry: He’d just chuckle and change the subject to get your attention again.

Sodapop: Soda would pull you in close and tell you that you’re zoning out again, while chuckling at you.

Johnny: He does things like holding your hand or play with your hair to keep you stimulated in conversation.

Dallas: He’d wave his hand in your face while saying, “Earth to y/n.” Or joke around by saying, “Am I really that boring Doll?”

Steve: Sometimes he gets annoyed, but just offers you a warm smile when you sheepishly admit that you hadn’t heard a thing he’d said.

Tim doesn’t like to lose an argument. To prevent loss when arguing with curly he’ll just end every bickering match with “go to your room!!” and it’s become such a habit at this point that he’ll be arguing with some random person like Dallas and just end his retort with “and go to your room!!”

How many kids you have - The outsiders preferences

Soda:
2 kids. 1 girl and 1 boy

Isabella Curtis is born first on Saturday May 11, 1969. She was a month pre mature and she was the spitting imagine of both you and soda.

Darry:

Darryl Curtis lll was born on Friday, March 20, 1968. He looked a lot like you but he had Darrys eyes and facial features. Since he was a bigger baby, he was born through a C-section

Alana Curtis was born on Sunday, June 27, 1971. When she was born, he had Darrys blue green eyes and dark hair but she was small like you.

Ponyboy:
4 kids. 3 girls (triplets) and 1 boy

Gemma, Roxanne, and Corrina Curtis wear born a on Tuesday, March 2, 1971 right after Johnnys birthday. The girls were fraternal twins so one looked almost identical to Pony while the other two closely resembled you.
(This was not my original idea, someone else made a post like this and I liked it but I can not remember who, so I have to give credit)

Martin Curtis was born on Sunday, January 3, 1974 And once again, your child grew up to be the identical twin to Pony.

The Promise

Ok guys imma be real with u because this movie needs to be known and acknowledged. First let me start with a little background, I am half Armenian, can read, speak and write the language and I am familiar with Armenian private schools. Throughout my life I was always told not to forget about being Armenian, to remember my heritage and my story and honestly I always wondered why, why do I have to be such a devoted Armenian. I’m a white person what do you mean I have to think about Armenia I’m in California. Now that I am older I am slowly starting to realize the importance of remembering ones heritage and ones history. Being Armenian we have such a rich culture and history that most of my life I took for granted. And every year we had a program to remember the Armenian genocide. And I know that some of you might not know what it is and don’t worry I’ll tell you. The Armenian genocide was when the Ottoman Empire (More or less Turkey) attacked and massacred the Armenian people because of multiple reasons one of them being the Armenians were in the way. This occurred during WWI. There has been a lot of conflict over this topic because Turkey till this day still refuses to admit to it being a genocide. Now I know I have to word this the right way or it could sound wrong, but Turkey refuses to take responsibility for what they have done, does that mean I curse the name of every single Turkish person I see, of course not. And that’s the thing about private schools too the in a way taint and give a bad connotation to Turkey and the Turkish people. Any way a bunch of countries have in fact said, yes it was a genocide, yes the Armenian people were massacred, except for the allies of Turkey and again I DO NOT WANT THIS TO SEEM LIKE ME POINTING FINGERS AT TURKEY AND SAYING THEY ARE TERRIBLE PEOPLE. Armenia ended up loosing 1.5 million lives and their lands. People ask me today, why do you want them to admit what they did so bad? The answer for me is always closure. I know it’s not gonna get them back or some how make everything better but it will give us Armenians a sense of closure. April 24 is the Armenian Genocide ‘day’ it’s is said to have started on that day and whatever, it’s just the day we honor all those we lost. Recently a move came out called 'The Promise’ it is a movie about the Armenian genocide showing the struggles and battles of the Armenian people during this time in 1915. This movie really put a new light on being Armenian for me. It showed me apart of history and the part that got to me most was that the events going on in the movie actually happened. I’m not gonna lie I boo hooed during the movie. It really brings light to a topic so seldom talked about, and sometimes scare people to talk about. After seeing the movie I was proud of being part of this tiny little nation that has taught so fucking hard and so gallantly. I’ve learned about our history for years now and we have been in hundreds of battles and after every one we are still singing and dancing and happy to be Armenian. I took a really good look at myself after that movie and me being me with my brown hair and green eyes I didn’t see an Armenian, I saw an American girl. But it was a sense of breaking through a barrier when I looked at myself and saw past my physical features and I saw the Armenian and American inside of me congealed into one, I saw the Armenians that were killed and slaughtered live on inside of me, and I also saw my American history because that’s who I am, I am half Armenian and half American. So if you guys take anything with you from this long ass mess of words please take my advice and go see the movie do some research on the Armenian Genocide and find out more about your own history. Be proud to be who you are whether you are German, Turkish, Armenian, American, etc. and be proud of your religion because it makes you and you are a pretty fucking awesome person. Before writing this I knew I was bound to lose some followers but oh fucking well because someone needs to bring this to other people’s attentions. This is not supposed to offend any one but more of in a way educate and bring awareness. Now to close this long ass rant type thing here is one of my favorite quotes by Armenian writer, William Saroyan…

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
- William Saroyan
