i wanted to make something cool and accurate but i made this instead (with dumb princess diaries and deadpool references i know forgive me)
anyway this fic is superflicious wonderful amazing and everybody needs to read it and send love to the author (also much love to @runakvaed and this flawless edit without whom id never have discovered it)
kayo leads the pink ladies, and is renowned for being the literal toughest girl around. she started her gang as more of a protection against harassment squad than anything else. then theres marion, who used to have a bit of a thing with scott but now she’s sweet on moffie, the nicer one of the group. rich-bitch penny is the last member of the pink ladies. her parents disapprove of her choice of friends, but she’s loyal to her girl gang.
brains is the new kid, come over from england with his adoptive father. despite being absolutely terrified of the thought, he enrolls in the school and is taken in by the pink ladies. he might not be a girl, but if kayo’s not looking out for him, then he’ll be squashed like a bug on the windshield of the tracy boys’ cars.
the tracy brothers make up the t-birds. they’re the sons of the late jeff tracy, and work in his auto shop, building and repairing cars. they all have big dreams that they can’t really make happen in their small town, making them all a bit rebellious.
scott, the eldest, is a few years out of high school and goes to community college to try and get himself educated for a better job and finally get them all out of their hick town. john balances the checkbooks and makes sure the business stays afloat. virgil, is a high school senior and is thoroughly in his rebellious phase, gets caught up in a lot of drag races in and out of school hours. both gordon and alan think he’s really cool and are always begging to let them go with him, but he insists they stay behind.
the pink ladies and the t-birds are close knit gangs, especially given that kayo had been adopted by jeff before he passed away. aaaand, that’s all i got!
this was really just an excuse to draw clothes, lets be real.
my mom is making me a skirt for pride bc i cant sew lol and tbh i think she really did not believe in me or the look until i came home from shopping today with all the other stuff i was going to wear and told her how i was going to style it
bc i asked her a couple of times if it was possible to make a petticoat to go with it bc lbr fluffy is better, and she was like “yes we can make one but i just absolutely dont have time to do it before you need it, you wont need one anyway” and i was like “yeah thats fine! i just want one eventually bc theyre useful” but after i showed her the rings and earrings i got, and the shoes i was going to wear, and the 50s shirt im wearing, and the giant headpiece I made (and showed them very excitedly) she came into my room and v furtively said “im going to make a petticoat for you tomorrow, i think it’ll make the whole outfit!”
