Newsies Headcanon (Modern AU: In the Band)
Let’s talk about the newsies being in the marching band.
•Katherine would be drum major because she’s just that good.
•Then there’s trumpet-playing, know-it-all, God’s-gift-to-the-world Jack.
•Spot would definitely play snare, because he’s equally as know-it-all, but slightly more aggressive.
•Davey would be that one clarinet kid who wants to be the “cool” band kid, but is way to awkward to really pull it off.
•Crutchie would probably be, like, that really chill sax player, who’s probably a drug dealer on the side.
•Specs would do something über academic, like the vibraphone.
•Then there would be Darcy on triangle. Because he’s that really intelligent kid who wants to band because it’s something that intelligent kids do, but he’s only good at being smart and not much else.
•Race would basically be the one switching between all the low brass, because they didn’t have enough people to fill all of the low brass spots, so they just basically told him to go forth and bass line, and he just kind of plays the Bb scale in quarter notes and hopes it fits whatever everyone else is doing.
•Pulitzer as general effect judge be like: “They just don’t seem to understand the emotion behind it all.. Connect, dammit, CONNECT!”
This has literally been in my mind for forever.
