all I can catch is– IF I HATE THE HEADLINE ILL MAKE UP A HEADLINE AND I’LL SAY ANYTHING I HAV'TA

my favorite lyrics per track in a musical: newsies

(inspired by this post + raw background pictures are not mine but the editing is)

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

So how many times a week do you think the newsies discuss the places they sell papes and someone says “I need a better spot” and Race says “I have the best Spot” without missing a beat.

-Modern Newsies Headcanons-
  • 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 :)

Being a Deaf Girlsie Headcanons

Request: I was wondering if you were interested in a deaf girlsie x any newsie boy ? It doesn’t have to be romantic but I would love to see her interact with the newsies

I hope this is something close to what you wanted sweetie! Also, if anything in this is offensive of insensitive, let me know and I’ll fix it! I don’t want to offend anyone.

Also, this ended up being about 5 pages long hehe

Warnnings: Cussing, name-calling

Being a Deaf Girlsie Headcanons:

- You’re a Newsie (obviously)

- So, you haven’t been deaf all your life

- And you lost your hearing under circumstances you’d rather never mention again

- Jack met you in the refuge

- And when he escapes, he brings you with him

- By this time you’ve become accustomed to reading lips

- Being poor, you can’t afford to learn ASL

- But that’s okay

- Because even if you did, no one else in the lodging house knew it

- They just become accustomed to looking at you and speaking clearly

- Okay, so

- You get very insecure about being deaf

- Because you can still speak

- But you don’t know what you sound like anymore, after all these years

- But Buttons and Finch assure you repeatedly that you have a lovely voice

- Also, even though you escaped the refuge with Jack, you’re best friends with Crutchie

- Because he understands what it’s like to not be “100% there” as he sometimes puts it

- Also, Crutchie’s not much of a crier.

- But there was one thing you said that made him shed a tear

- “I wish I could hear your voice.”

- You just sounded so sad

- So he held you for the longest time, humming

- You like being held while people hum

- Because you can feel the vibrations in their chest

- Anyways

- The boys get very protective when someone tries to flirt with you

- Boys out there on the street have no idea you’re deaf

- And you’ll often get hit on without knowing it

- Then suddenly you see Romeo standing over some bum, who’s holding his broken nose

- Specs adored you btw

- He doesn’t know why

- It’s just something about your kind and gentle nature

- Also the fact that when your clueless it is adorable

- Like, every once in awhile (it doesn’t happen too often) one of the boys will tell a joke

- But you’re not paying attention

- Then everyone around you is busting out laughing

- And you jump back, surprised

- Why is everyone throwing themselves around

- They look like they’re in pain

- Are they laughing?

- And all you say is “What?”

- When Davey meets you, he has no idea you’re deaf

- So he introduces himself rather quickly

- This boy talks FAST

- Not only that, but you’re also not looking at him

- All you see is a hand suddenly thrusting out towards you for a shake

- So when you look up you do that little “What?”

- And he’s really confused

- Like “she didn’t hear me?”

- “Uh. Hi, I’m new. I’m Davey.”

- He says it just as fast, so you catch nothing he says

- “Sorry, I’s… Didn’t quite get that. Can you’s say that again, a bit slower?”

- “…what do you mean?”

- “Sorry, sorry. I’s is deaf. And I need you’s ta talk a bit slower. So I’s can read yah lips.”

- “You don’t sound deaf!”

- You can’t hear Les, but Davey smacks his brother with his hat nonetheless

- “Sorry. I’m, Davey.’

- “Okay, not that slow.”

- You two become fast friends.

- SO

- You have a small crush on the Spot Conlon

- He visits every once in a while, since the strike ended

- You avoid him like the plague

- Because every time he tries to talk to you, your face goes red

- Because his lips look so soft

- And you’re so busy thinking about kissing him that you don’t pay attention to what he’s saying

- The only one who’s picked up on this is Elmer

- “Be careful with ‘im, (F/N).”

- “What you mean?”

- “That Spot Conlon’s a handful. I just don’t want you’s gettin’ hurt. Might start a terf war.’

- “I’s ‘ll be fine, Elmer. Sides, not like he likes me back.”

- “Why you’s say that?”

- “He’s Spot Conlon.”

- You once saw Baby flirting with him

- And that hurt you the most

- You couldn’t see his responses, since his back was turned to you

- But you could see everything she was saying to him

- And you end up crying that night

- Little did you know that he was blowing her off

- #BabyGotRejected

- Anyway

- Pulitzer was having a party one time

- And Katherine invited some of you

- And you didn’t plan on going

- Until Spot turned up and asked if you were going

- Because he was “hoping to see you there.”

- This is when the rest of the newsies pick up on your crush

- And they warn you

- And you’re just like “I’s already got this lecture from Elmer, shuddup.”

- Katherine, the sweetheart, let you borrow one of her old party dresses

- It was a little big

- But Tipper fixed it up so it fit you

- You, Race, and Jojo, and Tipper walked there together

- When you arrive, you feel so out of place

- Most people there are wealthy

- Or they have enough money to get by, then some

- Meanwhile you and your friends are basically dirt poor

- And you start to regret coming

- Because everyone looked like they were having a nice time listening to music, and listening to each other

- And the one person you’d come for, you couldn’t find

- So you tell Race that you’re heading back to the lodging house

- And he tells you that he’ll walk you

- And you shake your head

- “You’s have a good time. I’ll be fine.”

- “It’s dark outside, and- Oh, look who it is.”

- He turns you around, and your heart stops

- Spot has just arrived, fashionably late

- And he’s wearing his nicest pants, and a blue button up you’ve never seen on him before

- And he’s walking in your direction.

- “(F/N), you look great.”

- “S-so do you!” You blush, because some people turn to you

- You’d spoken rather loud.

- Race says something from behind you

- Spot just shrugs

- “I ain’t late. Party just started early.”

- Then he starts leading you towards the dancefloor

- “Spot, what are yah doin’?”

- He stops and turns to you, saying once three words

- “Dance with me.”

- “I can’t hear the music.”

- “Just follow my lead.”

- It isn’t that easy

- You trip over him multiple times

- So he brings you closer to the band

- “Vibrations, right?”

- Your heart fucking melts

- It’s all you can talk about for the next couple days

- And the other girlsies think it’s adorable

- The boys?

- Not so much

- Not to say they aren’t happy for you

- But you and Crutchie are their little rays of sunshine

- And if Spot ended up hurting you

- Elmer was not joking when he said there would be a terf war

- The next time Spot visits, Crutchie pulls him off to the side

- And gives him a warning

- “If you’s hurt ma sistah-”

- “(F/N)’s your sistah?”

- It takes a moment for Crutchie to realize what he’s said

- “N-no… But still-!”

- “Hey, hey, calm down. I ain’t gonna hurt no one.”

- He places a hand gently on Crutchie’s shoulder

- “You’s promise?”

- “I’s swear on tha life’a Brooklyn.”

- You two have Crutchie’s blessing

- Back to the “Sistah” thing

- Most of the boys see you as a sister

- Especially Specs, Jack, and Crutchie

- Crutchie is the first one to refer to you as his sister though

- And you see them as your brothers

- You’re all one big, (mostly) happy family

- This part

- This gets a bit angsty

- The Delancey Brothers

- Those bastards think they’re funny

- Because they think you don’t know what they’re saying

- So they call you names

- Their favorite so far is “Poor Deaf Bitch”

- But they make sure none of the others are around when they use them

- And you couldn’t bring yourself to tell anyone for the longest time

- Because you didn’t want to start a fight

- But then they picked up on your crush

- And they start calling you “Brooklyn’s little slut”

- And you’d had enough

- You ran away from them, and back to the lodging house

- And You break down, and tell Crutchie immediately

- You’d never seen Crutchie so mad

- And you can’t bring yourself to tell him how long it’s been happening

- “How long, (F/N)?

- “… A while.”

- “Goddamn them!”

- “Crutchie!”

- You just want to be held

- So he holds you while you cry

- And you eventually fall asleep

- When Jack gets back, Crutchie tells him immediately.

- He doesn’t even say hello

- And Jack is beyond pissed

- He marches straight out of the lodging house, grabbing the two closest newsies (Mush and Tipper)

- And the three aren’t seen for hours

- You’re awake by the time they get back

- Tipper’s lip is busted and a bloody nose

- Her clothes are torn

- Mush has cuts and bruises

- His clothes are fine though

- Jack has a black eye forming, his nose is bleeding, and he’s limping just a little

- They went to go soak up the Delancey’s

- But they had a couple friends with them

- Regardless, it was obvious who had won

- You started to cry again

- The next time Spot is over, you beg the guys not to tell him

- But Race does anyway

- And Spot gets so mad

- He turns to leave the lodging house

- You have to run after him to stop him from trying to take on the Delancey’s by himself

- “Spot! Spot stop!”

- “They don’t ‘ave the right ta call yah that!”

- “Jack, Mush, and Tipper already took care’a ‘em.”

- “I don’t care. No one messes with my goirl!”

- He’s talking so fast, you almost don’t catch what he says. And your heart just stops.

- “What did you’s say?”

- Your voice is so quiet

- And he stares at you

- And you can see him calming down

- He pulls you into the tightest hug you’ve ever been in

- And you two just stand there for a while, hugging

- These boys will do anything for you

- Though you remind them constantly that, despite your disability, you can hold your own

- But boys will be boys

- You’ll just have to show them

- Won’t you?
