In the poster for the film, the Greasers are shown laughing as Johnny is smirking. This was a candid shot, taken during the photo session in which the actors were supposed to look tough at the camera. What happened was that Leif Garrett (Bob, the Soc) was approaching the food table off-camera, and a stagehand (who did not know who Garrett was) said, “The food is for the talent (meaning the actors),” and Ralph Macchio sarcastically said, “Yeah, it’s for the TALENT!” This comment cracked up the cast, and the photo was used.
I could see boys going down under street lights because they were
mean and tough and hated the world, and it was too late to tell them that there was still
good in it, and they wouldn’t believe you if you did.-
Spring had just begun and Johnny was taking full advantage of it. He had been going out to this certain place surrounded by tall trees and had lots of sunshine everyday and sitting in the flowers. Dal had kept pestering him about where he had been running off too. Dally, dressed in his normal attire was following his seasonal boyfriend dressed in overalls and his striped shirt to the lot. Johnny pulled him down and looked at him. “Whaddya think, dal?” Johnny asked with hope bubbling up in his eyes. Yeah sure, it was feminine and the smell was just so damn sweet it was burning his nose, but Johnny just looked so happy and cute that he couldn’t help but give him a little smile and that was all Johnny needed to feel better. Johnny started picking flowers up and carefully tying them together. Dally has knit his eyebrows together in a frown, not that he usually isn’t frowning buy Johnny was to focused on the flowers to notice. Dally coughed and asked, “What’s that?” Johnny shook his head, with a grin. “It’s a crown!” He smiled and put it on Dally’s head. “A pretty prince deserves a pretty crown!” Johnny looked at him proudly and had the softest smile on his face. Yes, dally’s “tuff™” and badass, but not even he had the balls to tell Johnny about his pollen allergies. His nose was burning like hell but Johnny just looked so cute that he couldn’t bring himself to speak up. Right as Johnny went to kiss his cheek, he sneezed and scared Johnny so bad he fell over in the flowers. Dally started laughing and Johnny angrily propped himself up on his elbows, with a pout sworn across his face. “Oh come on, babe.” Dally grimaced, leaning on Johnny’s stomach, and pulling a yellow flower from the grass and twiddling it in between his fingers. “It’s allergy season.” Johnny scoffed and rested his chin on the top of dally’s head. “Yeah, okay.” Johnny tugged the long striped sleeves of his shirt over his hands and rested them on dally’s hands. Dally looked up at Johnny who was to focused on the clouds to even notice dally was admiring him. That’s his boy. That’s HIS boy. His little seasonal spring boy with flowers and stripes. He perched up and kissed the bottom of Johnny’s chin. “If you tell anyone I wore this crown, I’ll kill you.” He said. Johnny looked down at him and laughed. “Yeah, right. And you’re straight.” Dally just shook his head. “You get the point.” Johnny and dally bickered about this until they came to the agreement to keep this place to themselves so they could have a place to go and not worry about the boys. And they did.
Hi hello that was awful but it’s 2am & I couldn’t get the idea of the sneeze thing out of my head & I had to bring spring into it cause I love spring sorry I’ll leave bye
You’d just came back from your job, when you found Dally sitting’ on the couch. Sitting beside him, he immediately put his arm around you. Dal wasn’t always all lovey like this, but lately he was acting sweeter than usual.
“How was working’ baby?” he asked, kissing your cheek.
“It was okay, my boss is still an ass.” you said, laughing.
Dally had recently gotten mad at the gang for god knows what, and had been staying in the house more often. It didn’t worry you perhaps, to be honest it was kind of a treat. He started cleaning the kitchen up, and hugging you more, and was a little more gentle. Not totally, but a little.
“Tell me if he starts bugging’ you, Doll, I’ll take care of it.” he said kissing you.
After a while you started to doze off. You were laying on Dallas’ chest and he had the radio playing.
The man from the radio station soon came on announcing the song that was playing next, “Next up is Stand By Me by Ben E. King.”
The tune rang through the air and your ears, as you hummed along in your head. Dal must’ve thought you were sleeping since he started singing the song, lightly.
“No i won’t be afraid, just as long as you stand, stand by me.So darlin’, darlin’ stand by me.”
You were laughing in your head, since if you did out loud he’d surely be embarrassed, and even worse, stop singing.
“If the sky we look upon, should tumble and fall, or the mountains should crumble to the sea.”
Accidentally letting out a giggle, Dallas stopped.
“Aw, you heard that didn’t ya?” he asked, with his hand on his forehead.
“Yeah, don’t sweat it, it was cute, Dal.” you admitted, while sitting up.
“I don’t do cute.” he said, raising an eyebrow.
“Yeah, yeah, you’re too tuff,” you laughed, while rolling your eyes, “but i’ll stand by ya.”
Dally just laughed while pulling out a cigarette. I guess he’s back, you thought.
Dallas and Johnny at the lot. It’s late, so Johnny attempts to sleep, and his head ends up resting on either Dally’s shoulder or lap. Then Dallas begins to quietly sing/hum Love Like You before falling asleep as well. (which if you haven’t heard, you can listen to at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6nvQc8So0sy es, I know it’s a SU thing, but sh)
bonus points if someone overhears him and asks about it the next day, and Dally denies ever doing so.
even more bonus points if whoever heard it asks Johnny, too, and Johnny says that he did, which embarrasses Dally a lot, but everyone forgets about it except him and Johnny.
somebody please write this, and if someone does please let me know. if no one else does, I might attempt to do it myself.
