This is our land & this is our blood & may those devils down there know this; we will never leave this mountain.| The tattoos of the Foster family come to life in this exclusive piece by Tumblr Creatr, Josh LaFayette | Tune-in to the season premiere of OUTSIDERS January 26th 9/8c on WGN America.
<p><b>Steve:</b> *loses Soda in a crowd*<p/><b>Steve:</b> *shouts* PONYBOY IS A SOC LOVING DUMBASS!<p/><b>Soda:</b> *from the other side of the crowd* whAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY?!<p/><b>Steve:</b> There he is.<p/></p>
let’s appreciate the scene in The Outsiders where, after the rumble and the trial and everything that’s happened, Ponyboy’s sitting in the parking lot of the grocery store, and a bunch of Socs drive in and get out of their car and are all like;
“You’re the guy who killed Bob Sheldon. And he was a friend of ours. We don’t like nobody killing our friends, especially Greasers,” and they’re about to jump him, and Ponyboy just freaking busts his pop bottle on the ground like ‘big whoop.’
“You get back into your car or you’ll get split,” he says, “I mean it. I’ve had just about all I can take from you guys,” and he intimidates them into leaving.
And then Two-Bit comes out of the grocery store doorway and says, “You’d have really cut them up, huh?” which freaks him out because in the beginning of the book, he tossed Ponyboy a broken bottle for a bluff, and it worked pretty well but the thought of it made Ponyboy sick. And he’s all like, “Ponyboy, listen, don’t get tough. You’re not like the rest of us and don’t try to be…” And of course that makes Ponyboy mad 'cause Dallas told him that if you got tough, nothing could hurt you. But then Two-Bit stops, and he’s like, “What in the world are you doing?”
And Ponyboy just says, “Picking up the glass.”
Ponyboy Curtis is such a perfect little cinnamon roll that after everything that happened - getting jumped and killing a guy (kinda) and running away and saving a bunch of kids and two of his friends dying the same night and a rumble and a concussion and a trial where he almost got separated from his family and everyone treating him differently and everything - he’ll beat up some Socs now, but he’s still worried about kids stepping on glass in the parking lot.

“Dally had spent three years on the wild side of New York and had been arrested at the age of ten. He was tougher than the rest of us— tougher, colder, meaner. The shade of difference that separates a greaser from a hood wasn’t present in Dally. He was as wild as the boys in the downtown outfits..” - S.E. Hinton The Outsiders
