Just a little Newsies Headcanon
- Okay so Jack Kelly is often scared by the smallest of things, like someone coming up behind him and whispering ‘boo’ in his ear or something.
- But unlike normal people, Jack will jump 5 feet in the air.
- And of course, no one expects this, so one day when everyone is hanging out, Davey goes to tap Jack’s shoulder to get his attention one day and Jack freaks, everyone is surprised.
- Soon Race, Spot, Kath, and Crutchie all swear to never let Jack ever have another moment of peace as long as one of them is around.
- So now, whenever Jack hangs out with one of them, he demands that Davey come with him, because Davey (
the best boyfriend ever) doesn’t try to scare Jack.
- Also since, Jack, absolutely refuses to not take on a challenge, Spot and Kath dare him to watch a horror movie, begging to end, at night with all the lights off.
- So of course, Jack takes on the challenge, and everyone ends up sitting around the TV, with bowls of popcorn, making fun of Jack.
- Jack basically latches onto Davey, refusing to let go.
- “Jack get off me.”
- “Jack, I can’t move.”
- About halfway through the movie, Spot realizes that he chose a movie too scary, because even he is scared and Spot is never scared.
- After the movie is done, everyone starts talking about how scary that movie was, and then Davey goes and says “that wasn’t that scary. what are you talking about?”
- Now instead of scaring Jack, everyone tries to scare Davey.
- Nothing works until, Crutchie mentions something about a teacher (they both share) saying everyone failed a really important test and Davey loses his shit, and doesn’t calm down until Crutchie tells him it was a joke.
