About Losers Club Birthdays
So I made some birthdays for the losers. It’s for a astrology project. I’m also giving them birth times which I have not finished with.
I chose Ben’s Birthday to be in March. March 17th 1976 (this is 2017/19 losers specifically as Ben in the book canonically has a October birthday but the movies do not add up with that birth month)
I almost put his birthday later but his comment in chapter 1 during the Neibolt house breakup “I’ll be 40 and far away from here”. Doesn’t work with giving him a Autumn or end of month Winter birthday. So I put him at March 17th.
My birthdays I picked for them aren’t canon but would you still celebrate and accept them? Cause I might still make a Happy Birthday Ben post on March 17th.
If you will go along with my headcanons here are my selected birthdays for the others
Bill Denbrough: October 19th 1975
Why?: On the wiki and first script for IT, Bill Denbrough was labeled as 13 years old during the Georgie incident and still 13 next year in June and supposedly didn’t turn 14 during June through September. If his birthday was the same as his actor, January 4th then he would already be 14 in June. Yet he’s not labeled as 14. So his birthday has to be either in September or October. If it’s in October it has to be BEFORE the Georgie incident, maybe even yesterday 🤷🏼♀️. I saw him more as a Libra than a Virgo. I chose his moon as Aries which put him as October 19th so that’s why I chose that!
Eddie: September 14th 1975
Why?: Line in chapter 2 “Who defeated a killer clown before he was 14?” Therefore I think Eddie’s 14th birthday was that year anywhere after August. I ALMOST used his canon birthmonth in the book (November) but figured Virgo fits him better than Scorpio or Sagittarius Sun.
Stan: August 26th 1976
Why?: While Stan is labeled in both scripts as 13 during the first scene in June. His bar mitzvah isn’t until August. (As seen in chapter 1 deleted scene) a bar mitzvah happens when a Jewish boy turns 13. He got a heads up earlier that month probably that “hey, it’s a new month, means your gonna be a man eventually so——better start studying Hebrew so you don’t shame us all. You got a good amount of months to prepare so get studying” as I spoke with a Jewish guy and he said that they do get a heads up ahead of time so it doesn’t mean Stan recently turned 13 before June or the bar mitzvah might be in July. I tried to put together a cohesive timeline for the 2017 movie and I headcanon that the Pennywise fight in the first movie took place August 31st but that doesn’t mean the loser montage takes place that same day. So Stan turned 13 August 26th (double Virgo☀️🌙) and had his bar mitzvah on the closest Saturday after. (Bar mitzvah happens on the weekends)
Mike Hanlon: May 9th 1976
Why?: I wanted to put his birthday in June a couple days before the summer break scene but Gemini Scorpio moon didn’t fit as well as Taurus sun Virgo moon. Mike’s grandfather mentioned his father was the same age when he started helping out on the farm. So having Mike pull his weight is probably a new thing that recently happened via 13th birthday. Which had to be pretty recently.
Beverly Marsh: February 2nd 1976
Why?: Almost put her as November Sagittarius but February was closer and the placements fit better. I figured I could use her period in the movie as a way to figure out her birthday. At first I thought it would have to be pretty soon after her 13th birthday but apparently period day can vary. I did find something that girls with summer birthdays are likely to have their period at a earlier age so that definitely means she’s not a summer baby. My reasons for Bev aren’t that good but February 2nd has her at the same sun and moon as her actress so there’s that!
Once these days come, even if they aren’t canon would you still celebrate them?
