Author has written 4 stories for Outsiders.
I am the girl that doesn't go to school dances, or games, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on MySpace, or talking to a girlfriend on a cell phone or regular phone. I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain. BUT I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn’t care if people call her weird (it's a compliment), who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more,who loves and is obsessed with The Outsiders, who can express herself better with words than actions, who doesn't need a guy to complete her, and knows the importance of the little things. Copy and paste this onto your account, and add your name to the list, if you are anything like me, so the girls who are different and unique can know in their weakest time that they are unique but not alone: Iheartjake, TeamJacob101, Boysareadrag, The Dawn Is Breaking, twilite addict, The Lonely Teenager, AliceDaSpaz, Skittle.Rocke, Silent_Broken_Heart, St. Fang of Boredom, flyaway111, physics chick, CrazyNerdyFangirl, kiki1607, Cirruz The Night Elf, Em-Ster 9-1-1, greasy girl love, JohnnyIsMyGoldSunset, staygold101
Don't want a knight in shining armor; I want a greaser in Converse and hair grease!
You Know You're Obsessed With The Outsiders When...
You laugh every time you drink a soft drink for reasons unknown to people around you.
You name your horse (or any other pet) Ponyboy.
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 except 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 were 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 60s for fun, and you have asked questions concerning the 60s to your baffled history teacher.
You've tried slicking back your hair with hair gel/grease 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 daydream about the greasers and imagine yourself in their time period.
You have a sudden urge to eat bologna...although you may think it tastes like spicy dirt.
Your fear of fire has suddenly become a bit disturbing or you can't be around fire without bawling.
You suddenly start looking for greasers when you're out of your house.
You compare random people to The Outsiders characters when you see them.
You've started using the words, "ain't", "golly", "gee", "dig", "tuff", 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 you could quote entire pages from it.
You love your English teacher for getting you to read it.
You announce 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 rush up to every random person reading the book, squealing and babbling about how amazing the book is, and how much they're gonna love it so much. You say these thing to COMPLETE STRANGERS too.
You suddenly wish you had a southern accent, and you love people who actually do.
!You've developed a sudden interest in old movies.
You do a double take each time someone says the word "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 the movie at the very beginning when Ponyboy writes in his composition book, and tried to copy his handwriting.
You've wondered what it would be like the live as a greaser in the 1960s.
You spend twenty bucks at the bouncy ball machine, trying to get a red one. Then when you do, you walk around your subdivision for hours, bouncing it like Ponyboy does in the beginning of the movie.
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 committed 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.
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 restaurant, you order bar-bq-sandwiches 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 say "Oh My (S. E.) Hinton" or "Oh My insert Outsiders character name here" instead of Oh My G. (from JanayOkay14)
When a friend asks you to borrow the book, you pause becuase you don't want to part with it
You point out all of the itty-bitty details that they got wrong in the movie (Dally's hair color, Ponyboy getting shoved instead of slapped, etc)
You eat chocolate cake for breakfast and immediately think of the the Curtises
You have to stop yourself from laughing whenever someone says "soda"
When someone says "pony" you immediately think "boy!"
You continually ask your history teacher about the Vietnam war, or anything else pertaining to the sixties
When people say sixties, you think of greasers and Socs, not hippies like most.
You have a GIGANTIC FAN ATTACK (bouncing up and down, hyperventilating...) when Ralph Macchio danced to "Stay Gold" (I had a huge attack! And after I had the attack, I started crying. JohnnyIsMyGoldSunset)
You want to get a "Stay Gold" tattoo the minute you turn 18 (:

I'M A GREASER GIRL!
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.
Juvenile 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!
"I'm only 14 and The Outsiders has taught me some valuable life lessons:
Ponyboy taught me that things are rough all over, and even though it may not seem like it, people deeply care about you.
Sodapop taught me that it's okay to be laid back sometimes.
Darry taught me to protect the ones I love.
Dally taught me that if you're tough, you won't get hurt.
Two-Bit taught me that it's okay to make a joke every once in a while.
Steve taught me that you should always stick by your best friends and that people WILL think you're weird if you do backflips off of cars.
Johnny Cade told me to Stay Gold."
When Life gives you lemons, make grape juice. Then sit back and watch the world wonder how you did it.
Never take life seriously; nobody gets out alive anyway!

girl and guy were speeding over 100mph on a motorcycle
Girl: Slow down, I'm scared!
Guy: No, this is fun.
Girl: No, it's not. Please, I'm scared.
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: I love you, now slow down!
Guy: Now give me a big hug.
She gives him a big hug
Guy: Can you take off my helmet and put it on yourself, it's bothering me.
In the newspaper the next day, a motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. Two people were on it and only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized his break wasn't working but he didn't want the girl to know. Instead he had her hug him and tell him one last time that she loved him. Then he had her put on his helmet so that she would live even if he died. Copy this onto your profile if you would do the same thing for someone you love.
