Hi guys,

I know there was a peice of paper where it had the birthday's of the greasers on it, but it never had Johnny's or Dally's. Its driving me crazy, I want to know when their birthday's are! I don't suppose anyone knows? Or if SE Hinton ever mentioned it?

Thank you :)

No, as S.E. Hinton wrote those up for the co-writer of the Television series pilot.

She's never mentioned when 'Dallas' or 'Johnnys' birthdays were.
Although I'm sure she gave them one as that is one of the first things she does (mentally/creatively) in her character developement is give them a birthdate and horoscope sign.

Any chance she might tell us when their birthdays (Dally's and Johnny's) were supposed to be? I know it's kind of silly, but I was always curious about that too. And knowing the birthdays of the characters kind of tells you when the story happened... if Ponyboy was "14 and (had been) 14 for over a month" and Soda was 16 going on 17, the story must've happened sometime in probably early September. Just kind of interesting.

I think so. The star signs seem to fit the characters personalities so well.

THEY SO DO! I'm obssessed with star signs so here we go...
Darry- Capricorn- headstrong, smart, hardworking
Soda- Libra- SEXY, understanding fun
Pony- Cancer- dreamer, homebody, sweet
Steve- Aries- fiery, aggresive, strong
Marcia+Two-Bit- Gemini's- random, funny, talkative!
Cherry-Pisces- dreamer, sensitive, beautiful
Randy- Aquarius- smart, loyal, opinionated

Seriously suit 'em all...

is there any difference between an Aries and a Leo then? It seems Steve was originally a Leo?

I didn't know that! I love how the characters' signs say so much about their personality though!

He would have suited Leo too, yes. The difference (albeit small) is that Aries are a tiny bit more sporty. Both Leo's and Aries are fiesty though!

I have an astrosogy book and I see some Cancer in Ponyboy. Cancers like home and are moody. A see a lot of Libera in Soda. Liberas are fun to be around and can go both sides on things like Soda. The symbol for the Libera is a balence scale.

The characteristics of Capricorns fit Darry perfectly. Funny, I'm a capricorn and I'm nothing like that, lol.

I wanna know Johnny and Dally's Birthdays too :P Its gonna bugg me.

I think Dally is a Saggitaruis or a Leo and Johnny is a Virgo, lol. I dunno why, but that's how I see them.

I think Dally could very well be a Scorpio. No idea about Johnny though... maybe... Taurus...?
