A/N: So I know I haven't updated in forever. Go ahead...throw stuff at me. BUT! I have a good reason. Back in April my uncle was diagnosed with brain cancer, and now he's in the final stages of it. Its been back-and-forth, and its really hitting me hard. I also have been busy with auditions for "Singin' In the Rain". So that's enough about my excuse for not updating.

This chapter...I'm not sure what I think of it. Kid Blink is my FAVORITE newsie, but I somehow found that this was extremely difficult to write. Let me know what you think of it, (and you'll get HALF OFF on any NEWSIE unit you want.) Plus, I need some suggestions for who to do. I still want to do David, Medda, Sarah and Denton, but other suggestions would be fantastic!

Disclaimer: I don't own Newsies.

Solution- Turn your KID BLINK unit's switch from STRIKE to NORMAL.

Problem- My Blink hasn't been acting like himself.

Solution- Bathe your KID BLINK unit, and if your CRUTCHY unit doesn't shut up, give him a doughnut.
