stay gold ponyboy

“Tell me!” You begged your best friend for the past five minutes.
“No,” Johnny answered softly with a shy smile.
“Well at least tell me about her,” you pleaded.
“Okay,” He laughed, “She’s uh….really gorgeous. She’s smart and sweet, talented, adorable,” Johnny rambled while blushing at the thought of her.
“Johnnycakes,” you interrupted, “I have a feelin’ you could go on for hours and hours, just tell me. You tell me everything else!” You said, feeling some betrayal.
Johnny faced the ground, his face crimson red with embarrassment.
“I didn’t want to tell you because…it’s you.”

Dally: Johnny man, you look really good

Johnny: r-really? T-thanks Dal

Dally: ya, you know what you’d look even better on?

Johnny: what?

Dally: My d-

Steve: A bench in a church, thank you good lord

It will pass

Without his parents, Sodapop Curtis thought he had nobody left that cared about him.
After Sandy cheating on him, after losing his parents, feeling unloved by his bickering brothers, Sodapop’s admired personality faded away.
Whenever Sodapop was with the gang, he never talked anymore. Instead he drowned himself in his own dark thoughts, hoping maybe someone would care about him.
“Soda, you good?” Someone would ask.
“Yes,” Sodapop would lie.
Whoever asked usually believed him, but not Steve.
Steve knew his best friend too well, and the moment he became distant, Steve watched him like a hawk to see what could be the reason behind all of this.

One night, Sodapop simply could not help himself. Ponyboy moved out of his room, so nobody was around to hear him crying in his bed.
Thunder boomed throughout the house, joined with startling lighting that made the night sky bright.
Sodapop pulled his covers over his head. He hated storms. His mom would hold him throughout the scary night, no matter how much he protested about it being weird because he was “all grown up.”
Steve was the only one in the gang who had not went home yet. He was helping Darry clean up when he heard Sodapop’s sobs down the hall.
“Hey Dar, i’ll be right back,” Steve said.
Darry nodded and proceeded to wash dishes.
Thunder struck once more as Steve walked cautiously down the hall to Sodapop’s room. Slowly, he opened the door, increasing the sound of Sodapop’s sob.
A tear rolled down Steve’s cheek at the sight of his best friend crying, the thought of his best friend suffering his own emotions.
Without a word, Steve slipped into bed next to Sodapop, and wrapped his arms around him.
Sodapop did not move, did not flinch, only cried.
Steve ran his hands through Sodapop’s hair as he spoke softly into his ear,
“Are you scared?” Steve asked.
“N-No, storms don’t scare me,” Sodapop choked out.
“Not of the storm,” Steve said, “of yourself.”
Sodapop sniffled, not answering Steve.
Steve lightly stroked Sodapop’s face with his fingers.
“Ya know I’m here for you, you can tell me,” Steve said.
Sodapop exhaled a breath and said,
“I don’t think anyone’s really here anymore.”
“Hey, look at me,” Steve turned Sodapop around to face him, their faces only inches apart. “I know I’ve been distant lately, but I thought you just needed time to yourself to heal. But I see now it’s the total opposite,” Steve said.
“It’s okay Steve,” Sodapop said.
“No it’s not, but it will be,” Steve leaned forward and kissed Sodapop’s forehead.
“It will pass,” Steve said, thunder striking soon after.

Sodapop is a cannibal, he drinks himself all the time.


I’ll go home.

I get so damn SALTY when people make fun of Pony or call him weak. Like, he’s fucking 14. Both of his parents died, and the person he loved most slapped him. Of course he’s gonna be upset?? Darry may not have meant to and we know he loves him, but that’s still a scary situation to be in. And then he watched his 2 best friends die and obviously the rest of the gang is gonna react differently. They’re older/more mature. He’s just a kid and y'all are calling him weak for having feelings.

I thought everyone should see this deleted outsiders scene that they SHOULD HAVE KEPT Showing Ponyboy walking, Dally getting out of jail, Darry working, Sodapop and Sandy, and Johnny getting abused!

“I hope I never see Dallas Winston again. If I do I’d… probably fall in love with him.”

The Outsiders (1983) dir. Francis Ford Coppola
