Author has written 4 stories for Outsiders, and Sandlot.
So, basically, I'm such an obsessive person. Everyone who's met me (or heard me scream through the hallways) knows that. I love The Outsiders, Newsies, Dream Street, One Direction, Backstreet Boys, Sodapop Curtis, Rob Lowe, Scotty McCreery, Jersey Shore, and many more things.
You say Edward, I say Ponyboy.
92 percent of the Teen population would die if Abercrombie and Fitch decided breathing wasn't cool, because they're all Socs. Put this on your profile if you would be one of the 8 percent of the Greasers laughing hysterically in the background
You know you're obssessed with The Outsiders when...
You laugh every time you drink a soft drink for reasons unknown to people around you.
You've named your horse (or any other pet) Ponyboy. (Its true, I named my pillow Sodapop)
You've looked up Robert Frost poems before, just to read Nothing Gold Can Stay from a million different sources.
You've read Gone With the Wind, even though it's more than a thousand pages long, for no other reason other than because it was mentioned in The Outsiders.
If you HAVE read Gone With the Wind, you get randomly excited and squeal at the page where it quotes exactly, "Riding into sure death because they died gallant."
You've started wearing black leather jackets, old jeans, and white T-shirts a lot more than you usually do.
You've researched the 60's just for fun, and you have asked questions concerning the 60's to your baffled history teacher.
You've tried to slick your hair back in grease/gel and squealed happily at the results.
You've bleached your hair just because Ponyboy did.
You've started caring about your hair a lot more than you did before.
You've stopped getting haircuts.
You've started using the words "ain't," "golly," "gee," "dig," and other old slang words proudly, not paying attention to the weird stares you're getting from people around you.
You've read the book so many times that you could quote entire pages from it.
You love your English teacher for getting you to read it.
You announced to your stunned parents that your new favorite cartoon character is Mickey Mouse.
You want to hit people when your teacher's showing The Outsiders movie, and they don't pay attention to it/laugh at it.
You've rushed up to random people reading the book, squealing and babbling about how amazing the book is, and how much they're gonna love it. You say these things to COMPLETE STRANGERS too.
You suddenly wish that you have a Southern accent, and you love people that actually do.
You've developed a sudden interest in old movies.
You do a double take every time someone says the words "Soda" or "Pony."
You laugh every time you drink Pepsi (Ponyboy's addiction) or Coke (Dally/Cherry incident).
You write "Stay Gold" as the last line of every letter you write.
You've paused at the very beginning of the movie where Ponyboy is writing in his composition book, and you've tried to copy his handwriting.
You've wondered what it was like to live as a greaser in the 1960's.
You laugh hysterically when you really do "step out into the sunlight from the darkness of the movie house"
Certain songs remind you of characters/gang.
You've commited the Nothing Gold Can Stay poem to memory
You've written (or are writing) multiple fanfictions relating to the Outsiders
You start quoting the book.
You've memorized the number page on your favorite parts
You make a list of Greasers and Socs using people you know.
You start using the slang in the book (like Glory or shoot)
When talking to someone who has never read it, you get defensive when they ask if Ponyboy was his real name.
You freak whenever you see a blue Mustang.
You've read the book multiple times
After reading it again, you wonder at the details. (Like why Sodapop signed his full name on his letter to his little brother. Did he think that he'd been forgotten? or why they mentioned the nightmares...?)
You go to Dairy Queen. While at said resturant, you order barbe-q-sandwhiches and banana splits.
You contemplate the meaning of "gallant"
You start calling your group of close friends a gang
You watch sunsets(and sunrises)
You read this list and laugh at how many things you've done
COPY AND PASTE THIS ONTO YOUR PROFILE IF YOU LOOOOOOVE The Outsiders!
He may be the middle man
He may have dropped out from high school
But he's selfless and happy and kind
He never drinks alcohol, just gets drunk on livin'
He's the best brother anyone could want
The friend everybody hopes for
The guy we girls all want
The person we all want to be
We love you, Sodapop Curtis!
COPY AND PASTE IF YOU LOVE SODA AND ARE PROUD OF IT!!! DO IT FOR SODA!!!
I am a greaser. I am a JD and a hood.
I blacken the name of our fair city.I beat up people. I rob gas stations. I am a menace to society.
Man, do I have fun!
Greaser... greaser... greaser...
O victim of environment, underprivileged, rotten, no-count hood.
Juvenille delinquent, you're no good!
Get thee hence, white trash. I am a Soc. I am the privileged and the well dressed.
I throw beer blasts, drive fancy cars, break windows at fancy parties.
And what do you do for fun?
I jump greasers!
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leafs a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
