What would you think the Crows would be like in a modern au?
so kaz would be that ride or die kid who would help you bury a body without asking any questions. one word texter. always leavin ppl on read. super ominous, all the time. has a snapchat but he never snaps anyone. still uses a cane, and gets suspended for beating other students with it. still as over-dramatic as ever. probably calls himself dirtyhands bc it gives him street cred. “hey kaz why do you drink black coffee it tastes awful” “suffering is like anything else. live with it long enough and you learn to love the taste”
if this were a cheesy teen movie, inej would be the basic love interest who is a girl but!!! like sPOrT???!!! unheard of??? to the boy population at the school. most boys think she is just one of the guyz but one local boy sees something ~*more*~ and there’s a slowmo scene in the hall where they make eye contact but then she brushes off the boy to go skateboard or something equally better than love (she gets w the guy in the end but thats lame skateboarding is more fun)
jesper is meme-central alright like he just doesn’t stop and kaz keeps threatening him but jesper just mocks it back to him w his hands on his hips. would rather send an unrelated meme than an answer to a serious question. he dresses like macklemore. literally, he buys all his clothes at a thrift store. and he’d pop tags. kids can’t really gamble in the modern world, and there’s not a lot of epic gun showdowns, so he’s gotta get his adrenaline from somewhere. wylan is proud of him for getting through one shopping trip without stealing anything, but as soon as they’re outside, jesper yells yeet! and throws wylan a bright blue fedora he’d shoved in his backpack.
wylan is already a pretty modern kid? rich white kid who plays the flute?? runs away from his parents. he probably let anyone copy off his homework at first but after getting in with kaz, some of dirtyhand’s cruelty rubbed off on him and sure he’ll let you copy off him still, but what is he going to get in return? his style of humor is gay jokes. anything he doesn’t want to do? homophobic. someone blocking his way? “move, i’m gay.” sometimes does prank videos but only on kuwei.
nina. food blogger. instagram famous. probably does youtube makeup tutorials, and “what i ate today” recipe videos. fights for a ton of different causes and uses her platforms to bring attention to gofundmes and campaigns to donate to. always super busy hanging out with a hundred different people. sometimes she takes off days for herself and gives herself a lil spa day. and somedays she just stays home to watch romance movies and try creative popcorn combinations. (popcorn and pickles or popcorn topped w syrup?? posts a poll on twitter. pickles win but she strongly disagrees)
matthias pretends to hate his name in nina’s phone (brooding yellow 🌷) but he really loves it. pretends to hate nina’s cheesy romance movies but he really loves it. just really loves nina. he’s probably big into sports, any sport, all sport, mostly hockey. has a really quiet social media scene; probably just posts videos of his husky talking. nina is always trying to explain memes to him and he only starts understanding how to use it after it’s died. probably wears socks and nike slides.
kuwei is a certified nerd™. will stay up until 3am watching bad memes, illuminati theories, and bill nye. actually got along rly well with wylan when they were kids. only has a ginger ale at raging parties bc one time kaz thought it would be funny to get kuwei sloppy drunk and he’s never drunk alcohol or trusted kaz since (kaz filmed him trying to make out with jesper and sent it to wylan and so began the rivalry) tries a lil too hard to be in with the dregs. he doesn’t wait for anyone’s permission to do anything. always runs out of data on his phone. has at least 5k photos on his phone, at all times. dabs unironically
