Author has written 4 stories for Outsiders.

I first saw the Outsiders at the drive-in (by accident - my dad was convinced I'd be asleep before it started) when I was ten years old. A few months later I was able to convince him to let me read the book; I've been in love with the story and the characters ever since. I've been writing fan fiction for the Outsiders practically since I finished reading the book. All these years later, I prefer to look into their lives before and after the canon events, exploring what makes the characters tick and the events that could have led them to end up the way they did.

They Didn't Know by some blue december reviews
Relationships are complicated and no one not directly involved really knows what happens between a guy and his girl. His friends may pass judgment, but the fact of the matter is that there were a whole lot of things they just didn't know.
