Anderperry wedding/ married headcannons
They get married as soon as they can, it’s a small wedding with just the poets, Chris & Ginny, maybe Chet and Mr. Keating
Neil called Charlie the night before he proposed to Todd to ask for advice and Charlie said however he did it was going to be perfect
Charlie was Neil’s best man
Knox was Todd’s best man
They had their own wedding vows with tons of poetry in it
Cameron became a control freak on how everything should be because he wanted the day to be perfect
Meeks and Pitts were in charge of getting food for the group
Chris and Ginny were the flower girls
Mr. Keating officiated the wedding
Neither of their families knew about it until years later when Jeffery came to visit and noticed the wedding rings and asked about it
Pitts took pictures the whole time and then he and Meeks made a scrap book
Every year on their anniversary the poets all get together and make a big deal about it
Neil always gets Todd flowers and new journal for poetry for their anniversary
Todd always gets Neil playwrites and desserts
The wedding reception was a small get together and it was so fun and cute
Charlie ended up drinking too much so Cameron took care of him and kept an eye on him and thats a drunken Charlie ended up confessing his feelings to a very bright red Cameron
Neil and Todd loved it
Meeks and Pitts were shocked
They danced to all the love songs
Neil and Todd spent most of their time dancing with each other
Mr. Keating had given a big speech about how love is so special and that he’s proud of the two poets
Each of the poets shared different stories about Neil and Todd, like when they knew the two liked each other or when one of them came to the other poets for help
And then Neil and Todd lived happily ever after :)
if anyone has any cute chris headcanons,, im not saying you should hand them over,, but thats definitely what im saying
here's my personal headcanon here: chris and ginny are two lesbians in love, and chet (being the whole bisexual he is) wants to simultaneously protect both of them and himself, so what does he do? suggests that he and chris "date" to keep up appearances and have each others back :)
and here's some details
was chet upset when he found out that ginny and chris were together? yes, but not about the lesbian part. about the fact that his OWN SISTER and his own SEMI BESTIE didn't even THINK to TELL HIM they were IN LOVE
so yeah he gets all emo for a bit because BITCH HE WANTED THE SCOOP AND NO ONE THOUGHT TO GIVE IT TO HIM
eventually they decide to apologize and explain that they straight up didn't want a single soul to know because who KNOWS who will start rumors these days
ginny and chris are legitimately terrified of being ridiculed and chet sees it and knows how it feels
so they devise a plan:
"you want me...to date you." "no, no. 'date'. with quotation marks. not real. but yes." "and that's because..." "i'm a bisexual, chris." "ohhhhhhhhhhh."
so yeah! maybe that's not exactly how it happens, but idk something along those lines. but PLOT TWIST, with his meathead jock persona and her cheerleader vibes, they become the school's power couple within a week
but little did everyone know that chris and ginny would make eye contact from across the hall when chet and chris walked together <3
and when they would go on "dates", they would just talk and do random stupid teenager shit together, which results in them becoming besties
all three of them will hang out together, which is hilarious because chet is like "this is great i love third wheeling my fake girlfriend and my sister. this is every guy's dream."
and this whole debacle even brings chet and ginny closer together! like they're actually talking to each other more and becoming interested in each other's hobbies
and here's the thing: chet wanted to go see her in the play. he did. BUTTTTT HE HAD A DATE WITH A NICE GUY AND GINNY GAVE HIM THE GREEN LIGHT TO SKIP AND HAVE THE TIME OF HIS LIFE
yeah. the chris ginny chet trio is one of my favorite things ever honestly
//March 27th 1967//
Chris heard the door close from her place on the floor. "Babe, I'm home!" Ginny's cheery voice bounced from the doorway. She heard the clatter of keys and the dropping of a bag. it all she could think about was how much of a disaster her day had been. First, she'd been late to the office because her train had been late, then she realised she'd forgotten her lunch and finally, the asshole higher-ups had humiliated her again because she was a woman. If was bullshit! She was better than half the fuckers there.
"Honey?" Chris was snapped out of her thoughts by the sound of her lover's voice searching for her.
"'M in here, Gin," she whined from the floor of their living room. Before she knew it, Ginny was standing over her, a confused look on her face, tilting he'd head in that adorable way she did that made her look a lot like a puppy, a habit she'd adopted from Neil.
"What're you doing down there, love?" Chris groaned again and put her hands over her eyes. She felt Ginny sit down next to her and pull her head into her lap, gently stroking her hair.
"Rough day?" She asked gently. Chris nodded, not removing her hands from her face. "D'you wanna talk about it." Chris sighed.
"It's just been a bunch of shit honestly." She removed her hands to get a look at Ginny, resting them on her stomach instead. She saw her lover's face harden.
"Is it those squares from the office again? If they've messed with you again, I'll kill them myself." Chris huffed a laugh at her lover's antics.
"It's just the normal stuff, no need to get involved." Ginny gave an irritated sigh.
"It's not fine, Chris. They're treating you like shit for no reason. Your writing is incredible! Why does it matter that you're a woman?" Chris smiled up at her, the other woman didn't notice, too caught up in her antics. "It's such bullshit! Do you think Todd would have to go through shit like that? No. You've worked just as hard as he has and and people still don't take you seriously." Chris hummed and traced Ginny's lips with her fingers.
"Todd still has to deal with a lot of shit. Being a woman just isn't one of them." Ginny frowned.
"Yeah, that's true. Still sucks though. I hate having to watch people belittle you. You're the most amazing person I've ever met." Chris grinned and sat up, facing her lover. She took the brunette's face in her hands.
"Look, it sucks. I'm not going to tell you it doesn't. Everyday, I wish it wasn't like this and that I'd be respected by everyone but that's just the way it is." Ginny was about to cut in but she didn't let her. "But, that doesn't mean I'm going to stop fighting. I've earned my place here. Plus, I have you and Todd and Neil and Charlie and while I'd love outside approval, the only real approval I need is you guys'." Ginny's hands came up and over her own, smiling proudly.
"I love you. I love you so much." Chris leaned forward and met her in a dizzying kiss, trying to communicate the pure love and adoration she had for the woman in front of her.
"I love you too." She whispered into her lips. "I love you more than anything." Ginny's lips traveled down her throat and for a while, she didn't think of work (or anything other than Ginny for that matter) at all.
Some while later, the two of them sat of the couch together, watching the Andy Griffith Show. It was a nice evening, it was sprinkling lightly outside and the cool weather made Chris feel better. Around five thirty, Ginny checked her watch.
"Shit," she muttered. Chris pressed a kiss to her jaw.
"What's wrong, love?"
"Todd's out late tonight, meeting with someone about his book or something and I don't think he left Neil anything to eat." Chris snickered. Neil, as lovely as he was, couldn't cook for shit. If they left him to his own devices, he'd end up with burnt mac and cheese and half the kitchen blacked with soot.
"Should we invite him over for dinner then?" Ginny looked at her.
"Are you sure? We can just relax with the two of us if you're not up to it."
"Have him over, he is your husband after all." Ginny huffed before speaking.
"You know that's only a technicality, Noel!" She said before playfully hitting Chris on the shoulder as she laughed. Once their laughter died down, Ginny pressed her lips go Chris' in a silent thank you.
It was true. Earlier that year, all four of them had a wedding ceremony. First, a hurried one at a cheap chapel where Neil and Ginny exchanged vows (trying their hardest to make the other laugh) before Chris and Todd did the same thing (also making up total bullshit). Then, after that trainwreck, once they were legally married to avoid suspicion, the four met their friends in Chris and Ginny's living room for a real (and very much illegal) wedding.
Neil and Todd went first, Charlie as Neil's best man and Jeff as Todd's while Knox 'officiated' the rest of them crowded around in the way too small room and cheered once they kissed at the end.
Ginny and Chris were second. It's still the happiest day of her life. Even though she's legally married to Todd, the look on Ginny's face when she read her vows and the hollering and champagne and cake made everything worth it. Cameron was her own best man, Charlie's partner, Alex, being Ginny's (those two had made fast friends and they were overjoyed to be Ginny's best person)
They were luckier than most. They had managed to find a house for people like them in New York, two buildings connected by a basement door. Chris and Ginny lived in one with Neil and Todd in the other, creating an allusion of two straight couples living next to each other instead of the truth, one person from each household being able to switch quickly if necessary. She wouldn't give up this little life if hers for the world.
Chris got up to start making the pasta as Ginny ran to go fetch Neil. As the water was boiling, the two brunette's trailed into the kitchen, Neil carrying a bottle. He smiled brightly when he saw her.
"Chris! Thank you for having me over." He pressed a kiss to her cheek before passing the bottle to Ginny and leaning against their dining table. "I brought some wine as a way to thank you." He smiled his classic Neil Perry grin as Ginny examined the label.
"Neil," she snorted, reading the label. "this is grape juice." Chris burst out laughing as Neil hurried over and took the bottle from Ginny.
"No, no, I could've sworn this was wine." The two women laughed at Neil's fumbling.
"Jesus Perry, you get one role without me and you become a mess!" It was true, for one of the first times in their careers, Neil had gotten a rather large role without her. Shortly after, Ginny had managed to snag an equally impressive part in another show but it still felt weird not seeing them together.
Neil grinned and rolled his eyes. "Well, it'll have to do."
Neil sat at the dining table as they worked on the spaghetti, not trusting him to help after what happened last time. Once the dish was done, the three of them migrated to the living room with their plates and glasses of grape juice.
They squished on the couch that was really only made for two (there was another couch plus a couple of arm chairs but that couch had the best view of the television and none of them were going to give that up) and watched some sappy soap opera that was playing while laughing at the characters and talking about their days.
"...and then Lizzie stepped on my toes again!" The girls wheezed, almost falling off the couch in the process. "It's not funny! This is the seventh time it's happened!" Ginny wiped tears from her eyes.
"Like you didn't do that when I taught you how to dance, you hypocrite!" Neil waved his hand around wildly.
"Yeah- when I was seventeen!" The hysterics dies down after a while and they all sat in a comfortable silence.
"Do you remember when I taught you to dance so you could impress Todd at the Welton-Henley dance in highschool? The one Chris snuck into." Neil nodded along knowingly. Chris looked at them shocked.
"That's what you two were up to?" She asked. Neil nodded.
"Yep. And if didn't even work." He sighed. Chris looked at him indignantly.
"Are you kidding?!? You should have seen him, he was all over you when you danced with Ginny. We couldn't stop looking at you two all night." Neil blushed before realising her words.
"Wait- we? You were looking at Gin?" Now it was Chris' turn to flush as she felt Ginny's eyes on her.
"Well... yeah. That's what got Todd and I bonding in the first place. Both of our pining for two hopeless theatre kids." She was met with two sharp 'hey!'s.
After Neil had left, they got into their bed and Ginny circled her arms around Chris' waist, resting her head on the nape of her neck. Chris hummed in content. "Was what you said earlier true? About watching me that dance?" Chris laughed and placed her hands on top of Ginny's.
"Of course. I couldn't take my eyes off you. I drank so much spiked punch just to get away from the feeling really." She felt a soft press of lips to her neck.
"I love you, Chris. I love you so much I don't even know how to describe it." Chris turned in her arms to face her lover.
"You're such a sap." She said lightly, tracing her face with her fingers. Ginny closed her eyes and reveled in the feeling. "I love you too. So much." A smile tugged on the brunette's lips.
Chris' life wasn't perfect by any means. She was living as a lesbian with a secret lover in 1967 and trying to make her way as a journalist in a male dominated industry while misogyny ran rampant without consequence. It would always be hard, at least to a degree, but right here, in bed with the person she loved more than anything in this world, all was good.
Just so we're clear Seattle
Frank looks best in red thank you v much ❤
so, my friend @propaganda-for-poets did this dps playlist with time accurate songs and i decided to do a headcanon for each of them.
Lonesome Town: Pitts and Meeks are slow dancing in the cave and Todd is sitting in the back, crying while he thinks about Neil.
I Wanna Walk you Home: Knox is singing this for Chris when she get out of school, she's laughing and he's making funny faces.
Are You Lonesome Tonight?: Charlie is packing his things after being expeld, he looks at Cameron side of the room, his eyes tear up a bit, but he tries to ignore. Cameron comes into the room after Charlie left, he sits in the bed and just stares at Charlie's bed.
Everybody is Somebody's: Charlie tell's Neil he kissed Cameron, Neil pretend to be heartbroken "you cheated on me? i can't belive it", and Charlie laughs so hard because it's been a while since Neil was so playfull.
You Talk Too Much: Charlie arguing with Cameron, again. Cameron said something about his parents friend being a doctor, and Charlie was done with it "you don't even know the guy, stop talking like he's such an inspiration". He's jealous.
This Magic Moment: Anderperry first kiss. They're is their room, Todd was giving Neil heart eyes when Neil was rehersing for the play. Suddenly, he got up and kissed Neil, but he got so anxious that he tried to pretend it didn't happened, but Neil hold his hand and kiss him again.
Poetry in Motion: Knox is writing Chris a poem, the poets see it and make fun of him, but later Todd goes to his room to ask if he needs help, and Knox start to praise Chris while Todd laughs softly.
Walking to New Orleans: Neil is getting ready to go to the theater to the first rehalsal, and Charlie jokes that Neil is abandoning them to be an actor, and that the next thing he'll do is run away to New York.
Paper Roses: Cameron is feeling so bad about what he did, but what's hurting more is the way Charlie reacted, how quickly he turned on him, and he cries. Alone, without friends and without his boyfriend.
('Til) I Kissed You: Meeks is doing his homework, Pitts is working on the radio. They're being akward because they just had their first kiss, Meeks is still red in the face. Pitts turn to Meeks and confess all his feelings, he's fidgeting and being so cute, and Meeks can't resist, so they kiss again.
Come Softly to Me: Neil and Todd sneaked out to watch the sunrise, they're almost sleeping, is the begining of spring so it's still a bit cold, Todd shiver a bit, when Neil realise he put his arm across Todd's shoulder, and they stay like that until the sun rises completely.
Among My Souvenirs: After Neil's death, Todd realises he doesn't own almost anything to remind him of Neil, the only thing he has is a copy of the Midsummer Night's Dream script, that he got before Mr. Perry had Neil's things taken out of their room. The script is all annotaded, little ideas on the lines, entrance markings, but something caught his eye. On Puck's final monologue there's written "i can't wait for Todd see this".
What in The World's Come Over You: Cameron is an adult, he's a doctor, he has a family, a house, the embodiment of the american dream. But sometimes, in secret, he takes Welton's Yearbook out of the shelf, and he traces Charlie face, and he remember.
The Old Lamplighter: Is the first time the poets have a reunion in years, and they try to read poetry, they try to talk about their lives, but all that they can talk about is Neil. They share stories about him, they imagine how he would be if he was with them, and it's like they can feel his presence.
Dream Lover: Pitts is pining for Meeks, he love him so much, but he can't say. He just stares and hope that Meeks somehow guess that he likes him.
Let's Have a Party: Pitts and Meeks managed to take the radio to the cave, and the boys rejoice in it. They dance, they sing, they have so much fun, laughing their asses off when someone does a silly dance, is the perfect night.
Save the Last Dance for Me: Pitts and Meeks are dancing in their dormroom, they hold hands, they trip on their own foots and they're having so much fun.
So This is Love: Neil is looking at Todd reading, they're in their room, then Todd looks at Neil and smile "what are you looking at?" he ask, Neil says "Nothing" then gets back at studying his script.
Primrose Lane: Knox getting ready to a date with Chris, the boys are with him making fun of him, but he's just smiling while the song plays softly on the background. In the end, when Knox is getting out, the poets are all taking turns cheking him to see if everything is perfect.
Poison Ivy: Charlie is on the showers playing flirting with the other boys, he rises his eyebrowns, flex his muscles and everything.
It's Late: Cameron and Meeks are trying to convince the boys to go to sleep after a dps meeting, they're exasperated because the boys just can't get themselves to go back at Welton. Eventually they give up, and only then the others decide to get back.
Only You (And You Alone): Cameron had a nightmare, and Charlie wakes him up with kisses and soft touches, they get back to sleep in the same bed, cuddling, after a whispered conversation that lulled them to sleep.
Loving You: The radio is playing in the cave, Charlie is singing, using the god of the cave as a mic, he serenates for all of the boys while they laugh at his antics, but Cameron is flustered and pretending he's hating every second
todd: you're anxious, not angsty
meeks: nerds can be hot. i'm an example.
neil: two gay men. an enlightenment thinker. what's the difference?
charlie: knife kink but instead of sexy they just stab you.
pitts: pickles aren't meant to be enjoyed. pickles are meant to be needed.
knox: the heteronormative agenda of wattpad writers
cameron: forcible reanimation via weezer
chris: just ask about her gay reality show
ginny: concrete is the most ungodly of substances
stick: i'm full on pnictogens. in fact, i am the fifteenth column of the periodic table.
don't ask me how i assigned each quote, i don't really know how my mind works.
can you imagine the absolute chaos that would occur if the dead poets had heelys? because i think about it a lot.
todd would be the one to have them, most likely a present from his brother, who thought they would be a nice thing to give him for his birthday or something (<3). todd likes them, but from the moment he realizes that they have wheels, he accepts that he will never be able to master them. so he shoves them under his bed, making a mental note to learn how to heely one day (a note that probably won't eve resurface).
now don't ask me how or why but sir dalton finds these god forsaken heelys (he's in a very "hey, let me inspect every inch of this room because i'm bored and wanna find something cool", which pays off in this case). so he is scREAMING about the fact that HEY GUYS THESE SHOES HAVE WHEELS ON THEM. ofc he knows about heelys and has wanted them forever but his parents probably said no because they have a chaotic son who would probably break them in on purpose. of course he's gonna be a good kid and make sure todd is okay with him using them (which he is) and voila, the only step that lies ahead is figuring out how to actually roll.
meeks and cameron are in charge of the logistics. meeks surveys the shoe and theorizes how someone would successfully operate it. meanwhile they just slap the heelys on cameron and say HEY figure it out smart boy (said with love). so cameron is just running up and down the hallway, skidding and almost falling over and over because he;s trying to figure this death contraption out. and meeks is shouting things he think could be helpful (???) from the other end of the hallway.
ok but pitts wouldn't let cameron fall and crack his head open so HE'S the one beside cameron, jumping and holding his arms out every time he thinks cameron is going to fall back. he's not super interested in the heelys but he likes the bonding that comes with trying to figure them out :)
and while the testing phase is going on, charlie is lying on the floor yelling "HAVE YOU FIGURED IT OUT YET?" every five seconds because god does he want to zoom zoom already. cameron yells sarcastic things back every time and they start to get...very creatively insulting.
of course knox and neil are there watching, but they're more interested in their other endeavors; knox is writing a poem for his current crush and neil is running lines with todd really quietly behind everyone else (ndioeifjewoifdnjfa). they look up every time someone yells or they hear the screeching and floundering that signals that cameron almost fell.
and when the do finally figure it out, oh GOD is it insane. mister dalton is just cruising down the halls of Welton all smooth n shit, looking over everyone like he's a god amongst mortals. he'd be yelling "OUT OF THE WAY, YOUR KING COMING THROUGH" or some dumb shit like that that would make the rest of the poets laugh.
and when the teachers finally realize that a student (charlie dalton) has heelys (a banned object at Welton) well let's just say their not happy. and when a teacher starts chasing charlie down the hall, yelling at him to take the shoes off, nuwanda realizes they can't catch me if i zoom. so he's barreling down these hallways as fast as todd's heely's can take him, cackling on a cataclysmic scale, and high-fiving every one in sight. it's chaos, but it's cinema to watch.
Chris Noel from Dead Poets Society is going to super hell for lesbian crimes and also to get away from Knox!!!

Okay I have something to point out. So, after Knox ruins Chris’ life at her school he takes a piece of toast from the kitchen right. Knox biked to Chris’ school, meaning he got on his bike to go back to Welton.
What happened to the piece of toast during the time Knox was biking? Did he just hold it in his hands? Put it in his pocket? Hold it with his mouth like an anime girl?
The obvious answer is that Knox just ate the piece of toast before getting on his bike and riding back to Welton. And that makes complete sense and is an incredibly logical solution to this Knox’s piece of toast dilemma.
But Knox is still eating the piece of toast when he gets to Welton.
Why did Knox fucking WAIT TO FINISH THE TOAST AT WELTON?? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO EAT A PIECE OF TOAST MR OVERSTREET? DID KNOX GET ON HIS BIKE AND JUST WAIT TO GET TO WELTON SO THAT HE COULD EAT THE TOAST IN FRONT OF HIS FRIENDS? ARE ALL THE POETS BESIDES KNOX GLUTEN INTOLERANT AND HE WAS RUBBING IT IN?
We’re all wrong. The weirdest thing about Knox isn’t his simpery over Chris. It’s his choice to wait to finish a piece of toast after biking back to school.
pitts gives off the same vibe as the colour purple and the number seven (7)
