Newsie Band Headcanons

David: 1st chair clarinet. This kid smells like reeds. Instead of chapstick, he carries cork grease in his pockets. He’s so good, he squeaks in tune and is still extremely nervous when playing a solo. He always has perfect posture and don’t even think he doesn’t march perfect eight to five when the marching band season starts.

Jack: The chameleon. He’s that one arrogant trumpet player who sounds good and everyone thinks he practices all the time (which he doesn’t, but he doesn’t tell them that). He’s the one where the band teacher is like “Listen to Jack, you can tell he’s subdividing” and He’s over there like “F*ck no I’m not.” He’s first chair and loves playing the ‘Rocky’ anthem.

Kid Blink: That one saxophone player. You know, the one who takes it upon himself to blast careless whisper in the locker room and learn every sax riff in any pop song today. He’s the one that, in sixth grade, would walk around with his sax around his neck like “Look ma, no hands!”. He constantly makes saxophone puns and is known simply as ‘Sax Dad".

Kath and Sarah: The dynamic flute duo. They are the only two flutes and are basically co-first chair. They always know how to play their parts really well and show off when warming up before class. They are the ones who go up to David when he complains about his high notes like “Hah, try this b*tch.” They get really annoyed when people tell them to play louder and they love when they know they are about to have to play piccallo for a song and no one else is expecting it.

Crutchie: Crutchie is the last one you would expect to play the tuba and that’s why he does. He plays a powerful tuba and is great at carrying the band with his bass notes. He’s also that one kid who likes to shoot stuff out the top of his instrument. He likes to play the ‘oompa’ beats from the veggie tales theme which the other low brass instruments usually join in on. He sometimes likes to get inside the tuba and pretend to be a turtle because he can so why the heck not!?

Mush: He is the one bass clarinet in the entire class. He’s the one who gets excited when he finally has a main part in a song and is always trying to get the director to practice his part in class. He used to be on normal clarinet and always asks to hold David’s and talks about how small and light it is. He’s always saying David is the baby version of him and that’s his son and such. He’s the one who comes in loud and thinks he “Did it wrong” when the band director actually loved it. People always wonder how he plays so loud.

Racetrack: He’s the cool bass player. He’s the one playing “The Rising Sun” in the back of the band room with his shades on indoors while everyone else is setting up. He likes to dance while playing and wears backwards hats or berets while he plays. He goes ham on any bass solo he can get. He calls the bass “his baby” and doesn’t let anyone touch it. He’s the one that leans against the wall with it looking “cool”. Everyone else thinks he just looks dumb.

Spot Conlon: King of Percussion. He plays all the percussion instruments perfectly, but the bass drum is his favorite. He always makes everyone jump when he wails on it like someone just killed his dog. He likes to play amazing drum solos and then walk away like it didn’t happen leaving everyone gaping. Every now and then he’ll treat the band class by starting the cadence from marching band in class or playing “Under the Sea” on the marimba. He twirls his drum sticks and mallets and wouldn’t hesitate to beat someone with the bass drum mallet. It looks fluffy, but he can make it work. He threatens to shove them up people’s butts.

Skittery: He plays the piano. He’s been playing since 2nd grade and is classically trained, but still thinks he sucks. He slams his hands on the piano when he messes up or gets mad so he’ll be playing a pretty tune and then suddenly “WHAM!”. He’s the person to just sit down and do a bunch of runs that sound really complicated but it’s actually nothing. He gets mad when people ask him to play “The Piano Man” or “Chopsticks”. He once left class because his foot slipped off the pedal and messed him up.

Guys, lets all think positive!!

I understand, many of us are upset, but we still need to be happy!

So, I give y'all happy headcanons in hopes of making someone smile:

—Tumbler once made Skittery breakfast for Father’s Day; Skittery started to cry, and he held Tumbler for at least a half hour
—Jack has drawn his friends on the sidewalk with sidewalk chalk and it’s super detailed
—Katherine and Crutchie give hugs to anyone who needs one
—Once, Finch hid a bird in the lodging house, and it scared Bumlets, so they stopped talking for a week

—They all play Mario Kart 8 together, and they’re competitive
—They got Medda to start up a Glee Club in high school (I’ll have a list of headcanons to follow this one!)
—Specs and Bumlets have dance-offs
—Henry has funny names for all of his friends on his phone; Elmer is ‘Elmer’s Glue’ (get it? it’s a glue thing, I think. or maybe it’s not, heck if I know), Romeo is 'Juliet’ to be funny, and Race is ’*sighs* bOI’ and the list goes on
—Swifty really, really loves Taylor Swift (imagine if that’s how he got his name in a modern au, lol)
—Jake can sing the entire American Idiot soundtrack without having to stop
—Pie Eater names any of his pets after a type of pie he likes
—Mush really likes taking Buzzfeed quizzes
—Blink believes in zodiac posts and gets salty whenever he’s near a Libra for some reason
—Bill and Darcy babysit Les, Tumbler, and Blanket every weekend and they enjoy it (because they’re children at heart)
—Everyone has called Morris 'Moritz’ at least twice
—And if you didn’t guess, Oscar gets called 'Oscar The Grouch’
—They all enjoy watching kids shows, and Saturday morning cartoons
—Jojo can play the piano quite well, and likes to play medleys from his favourite musicals for everyone
—Buttons has taught the younger newsies how to sew and knit
—They all adopt a cat and Kloppman is a-okay with it
—They call the cat 'Mewlitzer’ and Katherine approves

“Are you scared,” Blink asked quietly, peeking over at where Mush was leaning against the wall beside him.

They’d stepped away from the others in the distribution square a little, gravitating towards the corner. No one had really noticed them go. Jack and the new kids had gone inside to try to talk to Pulitzer and everyone else was gathering together and rambling excitedly about the impending strike. Blink had been right there with them until he’d noticed Mush had separated himself from the group. So he went to find out why.

Mush just shook his head in answer to the question, and Blink knew that was a bad sign. If Mush wasn’t running round and yelling at the top of his voice like a rich kid drugged up on candy, there was something wrong.

“Talk to me,” Blink prompted, nudging Mush’s foot with his own.

“I’m going to starve,” Mush whispered back.

He didn’t have any money saved up. If he didn’t work, he didn’t eat. This strike could be the death of him.

“No, you ain’t,” Blink insisted, concerned. “You think we’d let that happen? We’re family, all of us.”

There was no way he was letting Mush go without food, even if it meant the meagre savings he had left were gone in a couple of days. It wasn’t like most of the newsies weren’t practiced in a little street theft. If you were quick enough it was easy to pilfer some apples from the fruit carts. They could eat.

Mush offered a thin, forced smile in response but the downcast demeanor remained. Clearly he was worried about more than just where his next meal was coming from. Looking over at the rest of the newsies and finding them suitably distracted (Race seemed to be holding a bet over the outcome of the strike with the younger kids and wasn’t Jack going to get him for that later…), Blink carefully took Mush’s hand. He twined their fingers together and squeezed reassuringly, grinning when his efforts got him a fuller smile in return.
“It’s going to be okay,” he promised. “This is all going to be okay.”

Masterlist of Newsies Headcanons for each character

At this point I’ve written up one or more excessively detailed headcanon/backstory list for most of the characters in the 1992 Newsies film, and a few for the stage versions of the characters as well.

In the interest of blog organization (and shameless self-promotion?), I’ve gone through, found the links to all of the lists, and alphabetized them by character.

Please note that these are just my views on the characters and what I’ve made up for them. Nothing is even remotely official. Speculation and blatant over analysis is my idea of fun. Enjoy! :)

Missy I will personally tell your parents that they are wrong and that you and Romeo should be together. Mush, let's go! -Freckles

[Romeo] Oh, don’t do that! I bet they’d freak if they knew! What if they didn’t let Missy hang out with us anymore, huh?

[Mush] Maybe Romeo’s right… What they don’t know can’t hurt ‘em, right?
