Darrel Curtis- The Most Dorkiest Man Alive (Headcanon) (Collab with westsidegreaser)

I have officially decided that Darrel Shaynne Curtis Jr. is the most dorkiest and adorable man on the planet. 

- Even though it doesn’t look like it, Darry loves poetry.

-His favorites being Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson.

-The gang figured this out when he helped Ponyboy write a poem for English class and continued to sass Pony on what proper rhyme and meter to use. 

-Darry is that guy who holds doors open like a true gentleman, even if you are two miles away. 

- He blushes real easily.

-He is a teachers pet. 

-He only got detention once and that was because he had to get Two-Bit out of a sticky situation which involved a punch or two being thrown at Socs. When he received the detention he became very flustered and became very embarrassed about the whole thing. 

- During his high school years, he wore braces. 

-He played the cello in middle school but had to quit after he started playing football.

-He is also very farsighted so he wears reading glasses. And by god does he look adorable in them!

- He is also that one guy who loves Shakespeare. His favorite play being “Julius Caesar”.

-Sometimes in high school, Darry and Two-Bit would play different parts from different Shakespeare plays, Soda and Steve would sometimes join in as well. Two-Bit always wanted to play the female role while Darry the male and Darry still doesn’t understand why…

-And last but not least, he does not understand when a woman is flirting with him. He simply does not understand the whole flirting process so he just assumes that they are just being nice. Soda is still trying to get it in his head that that’s not the case.

anonymous asked:

character breakdown for Darrel Shaynne Curtis please :)

How I feel about this character

At first I was like tone it down, sir, but then I realized how stressed he is and it absolutely broke my heart. Darry works so hard, he deserves the whole world, he needs to take a freakin’ break.

All the people I ship romantically with this character

I never thought of that actually? Not anyone in particular, but he sure deserves a wife, poor bb.

My non-romantic OTP for this character

I honestly thought that one guy he played football with back in highschool would’ve been a perfect bro friend, but they’re on opposite sides nowadays and that also breaks my poor lil heart, like why.

My unpopular opinion about this character

I feel like he’s really rough without meaning to be like I have this headcanon that if you shake his hand, you’ll pull back and say “Ow!” bc it was too rough, but he didn’t mean to, he’s just like that and he apologizes quickly like oh gosh, sorry,,,

One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon

THAT HE COULD GO TO COLLEGE, THAT HIS PARENTS WERE STILL ALIVE, THAT PONY AND SODA COULD BEHAVE A LIL MORE, AND THAT HE HAD A WIFE TO MAKE HIM FEEL BETTER BC HE NEEDS LOVE.

LOOK AT THIS GIF AND TRY AND TELL ME THAT IS NOT GENUINE CONCERN ON DARRY’S FACE FOR PONY’S WELL-BEING. AND THE SLIGHT “PUT-OFF” WHEN SODA POPS UP AND PONY’S WILLING TO LOOK AND TALK TO HIM INSTEAD OF DARRY!

I always saw it that way, too!  And look carefully you see that Darry takes a deep breath when Soda lurches down to Pony as well; like he wanted to be the one that Pony talked too…

    • he takes on a lot after u though
  • tbh if yall have more than 1 kid, the house can b vvv hectic and crazy
    • but like darry likes it that ways sometimes 
    • bc after soda and pony moved out darry thought he would like the quiet but actually really hates it
    • so when he has kids
    • he kinda just sits there w a smile sometimes
    • knowing that this house will probably not make him lonely for the next decade or so
    • but omg he def misses the quiet times sometimes 
    • like sometimes he’ll just sit in the bathroom where it’s quiet for an hour lmao
  • sometimes all the kids will hop all over him and climb him like a jungle gym and shit
    • and that’s around the same time he calls his brothers over so he can have some alone time w u ;))
