Darry: Small caps, and it’s always pretty neat and even. He holds his pen normally.
Tim: Oddly neat and basic handwriting, though he’s been told it’s rather girly, he holds his pen pretty firmly.
Two-Bit: Fairly messy, though still legible. He holds his pen odd in that instead of having the usual pointer finger on top of the pen and the middle finger supporting it, he has his middle finger on top as well and supports his pen with his ring finger.
Steve: Omg so messy. 100% illegible. If you can decipher his writing you deserve a Nobel Prize. Mainly because he holds his pen so close to the tip he can’t see what he’s writing and therefore can’t see what it looks like.
Dallas: Small caps, but fairly messy and he often makes mistakes because he tries to write fast. He holds his pen practically in a fist.
Angela: Fairly girly, she likes to flirt through her handwriting. She holds her pen rather loosely.
Sodapop: It’s kind of just scribbles, though it’s better than Steve’s. He holds his pen too close to the tip as well.
Johnny: Super neat and small caps. He takes his time writing and that helps him fall behind in class.
Curly: He mixes cursive and regular letters so his handwriting ends up looking girly(it must run in the family) He holds his pen with his pen resting between his palm and middle and pointer fingers rather than resting it between his thumb and middle and pointer finger.
Ponyboy: He usually writes in cursive, unless he’s writing a rough draft for a paper, then he’ll write normally so he can see mistakes more easily. I’m not even going to try and describe how this boy holds his pen because he does it every way imaginable and non-imaginable. It must be an artist’s thing.
