It's almost October, you know what that means??!?!? HALLOWEEN!!!! Do you have any headcanons about the virals at Halloween? 🎃👻🎃👻🎃👻🎃
IM SO EXCITED!!! Time for spooky 👻🎃👻
The Virals as an old urban legend told to younger kids to scare them from going to Morris Island and the story goes that four kids were cursed to spend their nights on earth trapped in the bodies of wolves, never quite fully wolf but never quite human. The night their leader disappeared, it was said that you could hear the wolves of Morris howling all over Charleston, mourning the loss of their leader. Now the three remaining wolves (called The Trinity) walk the lonely shores of Morris, waiting for their alpha to return, red eyes glittering under the moonlight. Nobody ever returns from Morris, they say. Some say that the missing alpha is the white she-wolf that appears on Loggerhead Island, always followed by a wolf dog with golden eyes.
The Virals as the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, doomed forever to spend eternity apart until the end of days has come. Tory as Death, who rides not a horse but a wolf and has lived for as long as the earth has stood. Ben as War, who sows the seeds of discontent in the hearts of man and teaches them to fight for what they believe yet leaves a trail of bodies in his wake for his mistress, Death. Shelton as Famine, carrying the scales of Justice, judging who will be left to Pestilence and War and Death. Hiram as Pestilence, who sweeps across the lands, conquering cities and nations, the bow of War in his hands.
Now for some cute Virals Halloween stuff!
The Morris boys + Jason dressing up as the T-Birds from Grease, all slicked back hair and leather jackets with Tory, Ella and Madison dressing up as the Pink ladies except they all rather go for Rizzo’s dark style and only wear the pink jackets
Hi spends all night combing through his hair and imitating John Travolta and really, the whole gang bursts into songs from the movie all throughout the night and for one night, the hierarchy at Bolton ceases to exist because its fun and no one is supposed to be who they really are anyways
Madison is surprised when Tory and Ella ask her if she wants to be apart of their Pink Ladies group but she’s honestly touched and for the first time in her life, it feels like she has actual friends instead of whatever toxic power struggle she had with Ashley and Courtney (also she loves seeing Jason in his T-Birds costume)
Whitney drags Kit out to Charleston and aren’t they a sight, a revamped Glinda the Good Witch and the Scarecrow (because really, Kit is only dressing up to make Whitney happy)
Hiram pulling Shelton in to dance when they play “You’re the One I Want” and tucking his hands into the back of Shelton’s pockets I haVE TO GO RIGHT NOW
Tory being very insecure about her outfit at first so Ben ropes Ella into helping him make Tory a bit more comfortable except it feels more like they’re both kind of hitting on her and really Tory shouldn’t be blushing as hard as she is but she’s enjoying the attention?? (The roles reverse when Ella and Tory tug Ben onto the dance floor and li sten I just really love these three together leaf me alonnee)
