okay but my favorite thing about the newsies fandom is y’all were able to make two people who literally never directly interact with one another one of the biggest ships in the fandom like that is something special i’m glad i got sucked into this
There’s a reason they call Davey Jacobs the “Walking Mouth”. It’s because he can fucking rap.
You’ll usually hear him rapping Bo Burnham songs.
When Crutchie gets mad (which is mostly never) he yells in German. It scares the shit out of everyone.
ALSO: when he’s nervous or suffering from anxiety he’ll talk to himself in German.
He refuses to tell anyone where he learned the language. Not even Jack and Davey know.
If either Davey or Crutchie is feeling overly anxious, Jack holds out his hands to them. Not just for comfort, but for the fact that Jack always has dried paint on his hands. So instead of harming themselves in any way, they pick at the paint.
Jack has three tumblr pages. One for his art, one for reblogs, and one for the fanart he makes.
Spot’s the only person who knows about the fanart one, because had to log into Jack’s computer to check his flight number and the page was still open.
Spot would use it for blackmail but it’s actually hella rad.
Race runs an extremely popular pranking channel on YouTube. It’s mostly him messing with Spot, but all of the other Newsies (including Katherine, Sarah, and Ms. Medda) make an appearance.
Katherine has a pet doggo named Whizzer.
Spots favorite Broadway song is Paciencia y Fe from In The Heights. He’ll often sing it when working.
Race took a video of it and sent it to the big GC. Spot got seriously pissy.
The big GC is called ‘Welcome To The Gay Parade’.
Since Crutchie has had to use a crutch for years, he has super mega ultra upper body strength.
Sometimes, if he’s in an area with a lot of hand holds, he’ll swing from place to place like Spider-Man.
Les was the first to compare him to Spidey, actually. So the nickname caught on real fast.
He’s been Spider-Man for Halloween multiple times.
Davey and Crutchie have the hots for the Christian Bale version of Batman.
Jack doesn’t understand the appeal. He’s kinda jealous.
“Wasn’t he in a Disney movie at one point?”
“He can’t even sing. Have you heard him sing? It sucks.”
“He dances like a drunk chicken.”
The only times Crutchie lets people carry him is when they’re late and need to go fast, or when they’re at crowded amusement parks.
He hates walking around in amusement parks, but he loves amusement parks.
Every two years the whole gang packs up their cars and road trips to Orlando.
Their main stops: Universal Studios (both Harry Potter parks and the Marvel part), Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, one of the crazy water parks, and Epcot.
They only go to Epcot because they are all bilingual and like to start speaking to the workers of certain countries in that countries language.
Everyone lost their shit when they met Peter Pan.
They’re one of the good groups that only uses one phone to take the picture instead of making the photographers use everyone’s phone.
They understand how annoying it can be when people hold up the line.
Spot nearly screamed when he saw ten people getting a photo session done with Merida.
They had to wait for over 30 minutes in line. Spot was not pleased.
Mush and Romeo started crying when they walked through the entrance of Harry Potter world.
Everyone got one of those rad interactive wands.
Crutchie was the one who got chosen out of the group to do the interactive wand choosing thing.
They ran around the park casting spells and buying as much merch as their bags could hold.
Racetrack bought a fucking Firebolt.
Specs wore Harry Potter glasses.
Blink wouldn’t stop calling people muggles.
The gang nearly gets kicked out of the parks multiple times.
They aren’t being bad, just super loud and excitable.
Later that night Race starts ranting about how it’s stupid that they get yelled at but the screaming children go unnoticed.
Yo so that’s just some of the headcanons i came up with. i might write more, if you all like them :)
