I just know that I'd be so comfortable around them, they'd be so fun to hang out with <3
I made some Dead Poet Society "fake screenshots" but I want people to think they're canon.
I could make more--
I'm so sorry these are so dumb haha

me watching dps, after the play scene ends: i do not see.
neil: not sure if this is a manic episode or i finally got my shit together, but either way I’m deep cleaning my room at 2 in the morning
todd: just got a magazine from a college talking about admissions, bold of them to assume I’ll be alive long enough
charlie: turns out im a whore
meeks: if this bitch ask me one more time about thermodynamics i might just eat a cinder block
pitts: i am minding my damn business
knox: two hours ago i was stalking their twitter and know im designing our wedding invitations
cameron: god put me on this earth to be a bitch, so deal with it
charlie: I'm not doing too well
charlie: I have this headache that comes and goes
cameron: *walks into room*
charlie: look there it is again
currently writing from cam’s pov and it is quickly becoming my favorite???
a thing i love about cam’s character is that there’s enough there to understand him and his motivations, but it’s not restrictive- i feel like there’s so much blank space to fill in but i still know his character so well.
anyways this fic is hopefully going to forward the trend of exploring cameron’s character that we have going on. i’m extremely excited to contribute to the chameron canon lol.
rainy days - three shorts following our favourite duos
1. chris and ginny
"This stuff feels sticky." Ginny whined.
"Don't be so dramatic, Gin," Chris sighed, amused. Unable to contain herself, Ginny betrayed her act with a grin. Chris just smiled and continued to apply the creme eyeshadow to her girlfriend. "You do this all the time already, you're an actress."
"I know, I'm just messing with you." They were at Chris' house, her parents were out in a business trip so she was left alone for a few days. As soon as they left, Chris called Ginny over for a sleepover and started to give her a makeover to practice her skills.
"Allllright," Chris dragged out. "all done." She held up a mirror to Ginny, letting her see how she looked.
"Woah," She breathed. Chris had transformed her entire face into some mythical being, a new interest of her's ever since she saw Midsummer. "I look really good"
"You always look really good." Chris commented. Ginny met her eyes and they sat there, just watching each other intently until Ginny leaned forward and pressed her lips to Chris' gently, hands snaking up to her face. They broke apart for a second before Chris wrapped her hands around Ginny's waist and kissed her harder. They sat, making out for a little while, Ginny moving to sit in Chris' lap when a strike of lightening broke them apart, Ginny shooting up and letting out a little yelp. Chris snorted with laughter.
"Shut up," Ginny said laughing, hitting Chris in her shoulder.
"I think it's raining." Ginny got up off of Chris and helped her up, the two of them walking to the window to see buckets of rain falling in the late afternoon. They grinned and looked at each other. "You know what this means?" Ginny asked.
"Scary movie night?"
"Scary movie night." She confirmed.
Almost and hour later, the girls were cuddling on the couch with popcorn more than half way through Dracula. "I remember when this movie came out." Chris commented idly, her head on Ginny's lap.
"Oh yeah, you saw that with Chet, didn't you."
"I did. How do you know that?"
"I remember being really jealous of him." Chris lifted her head up off of her lap and sat up.
"You have nothing to be jealous of."
"Yeah, I know that now, but did you think I did back then?"
"Let me rephrase that. You never had anything to be jealous of. It was always you." Ginny smiled and pulled Chris in for a kiss.
"I love you."
"I love you too, Gin. Always."
Let's just say neither of them payed attention to the rest of the movie that night...
2. neil and todd
"Now cracks a noble heart. Good-night, sweet prince; And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest." Neil spoke. He and Todd were laying on his bed. Neil was reading him Hamlet as they lay tangled together on top of the sheets. Neil on his back with Todd's head on his chest listening to both his voice and Neil's heart beating in his chest.
"Have I ever told you how much I love it when you read Shakespeare?" Todd hummed dreamily. Neil huffed a laugh.
"All the time, love." He said, pressing a kiss to Todd's head.
"Good." It was a cold day at Welton, the boys had their radiator on high and relied on their lamps for light, not wanting to ruin the atmosphere. Neil kissed his head once again and just before he could continue reading, a crack of lightening sounded from outside. Todd got up quickly and practically ran to the window.
"Are you afraid of lightening?" Neil asked his boyfriend. Todd shook his head.
"No, I love it. It looks like a storm's coming." He turned to Neil. "What's the time?"
"Uh," He checked his watch. "around four." Todd looked at him in anticipation. "...What?"
"Can we go outside?" Neil sighed, weighing the options in his head. Carpe diem, he thought.
"Why not? We just have to be back by five so we can get changed before dinner." Todd grinned so wide Neil could see all of his teeth. He pulled him off the bed and have him a quick kiss before darting out the door, daring Neil go follow. Oh, how much he's changed, he thought happily before running after Todd.
By the time they made it far enough into the woods they wouldn't be seen, they were completely and utterly soaked, hair laying flat on their heads like helmets, jumpers heavily hanging off them. Neither could find it in themselves to care. Todd was spinning around in the rain, arms out, head back to feel the drops on his face. Neil ran up behind him and wrapped him up in a hug, arms circling his waist. Todd hummed happily and turned in Neil's arms, putting his own around Neil's shoulder, pressing their foreheads together.
They swayed gently to the imaginary music, spinning each other occasionally. Neither of them had ever been so happy. Both slow and needy kisses were exchanged in the rain that day. "I'm so glad I met you." Todd spoke. "Don't know where I would be without you."
"Get used to it Todd, because I'm not going anywhere."
"And I wouldn't have it any other way."
3. charlie and cameron
Charlie burst into his and Cameron's shared dorm room with a bang. "Jesus, Charlie. I'm trying to study. Do you have any respect for others?"
"Of course not. You've known me for years now, how did you forget that?" Cameron sighed and put down his pencil.
"What us it?"
"I'm going to cut right to the chase, my ginger friend-
"Don't call me that"
"-I need your help to get back at Hopkins."
"Why? What has he done?" Charlie sighed dramatically and flopped back on his bed. Cameron stared at him from his place at his desk.
"He ruined my prank on Hager by accidentally spilling the beans to him. Got me detention for a month as well as fifteen rounds with the paddle." Cameron cringed. He hated it when Charlie got beaten even if he'd never admit it.
"Then stop pranking maybe?" He faintly heard the sound of lightning outside. Neither of them payed it much attention.
"You're no fun."
"Hey," he said, putting up his hands in surrender. "you came in here and for my help." Charlie groaned.
"Only out of necessity. Trust me, I don't want to."
"Okay then, why not go find one of the others. Neil perhaps?" He said, starting to go back to his homework.
"Everyone else is busy doing something. You're the only one that's not."
"I'm literally doing homework."
"Yeah, like I said. Nothing." When Cameron didn't relent, Charlie begged. "Pleeeease, Cameron." He whined.
"What's in it for me, Dalton?" He finally gave in, dropping his pencil once again and turning to Charlie who only grinned.
"I solemnly swear to not tease you for two whole weeks. No pranks, no making fun of you." Cameron thought about it for a second. It really wasn't that great of a deal but he had been doing homework for hours now...
So that's how Richard Cameron ended up in this situation, distracting Hopkins as Charlie snuck into his room and put itching powder in his clothes drawer. This was so much more of a Neil job, if only he wasn't spending time with his boyfriend. (that's right, he knew about them. the boys often underestimated him. he was much more observant than they realised) Cameron couldn't converse for shit. "What did you need me for, Cameron?"
"Oh, uh, I... needed advice for the test on Monday! Yes, that's it." He lied (terribly). Hopkins gave him a quizzical look.
"You want my help on the test." Shit. He only realised how stupid that sounded now. "Did you hit your head or something?" Just as he was going to come up with another shitty lie, Charlie appeared behind Hopkins' shoulder, giving him a thumbs up.
"Um- you know what? Never mind." And sped off behind him, leaving Hopkins dumbfounded.
He caught up to Charlie who was whooping with laughter. "He's in for a surprise later on. What lie did you tell him?"
"Uh," He stammered. "I may have asked him for help on the chem test on Monday..." Charlie stood still for a moment, an unreadable expression on his face.
"You asked Hopkins for help?"
"Um... Yes?" They stood still for another moment before Charlie burst out in laughter. Cameron couldn't help the giggles that came out of his own lips at the sheer absurdity of the lie.
"Oh my god-" He gasped, trying to catch his breath.
"Shut up! I was put on the spot, okay?" That just made Charlie laugh harder and out his arm around his shoulders, walking through the halls.
"Maybe I should bring you on these more often."
"No." Charlie paused for a moment.
"Y'know, maybe you're not as much of a stick-in-the-mud as I thought." Cameron smiled.
"Maybe you're not as idiotic as I thought." They came to a window and saw it was pouring outside. Charlie looked at the rain, them back at Cameron. He tagged him quickly on the arm before running to the door that led out to the courtyard. "Tag! You're it!" Cameron smirked devilishly before following him out into the rain.
"Oh you're on, Dalton!"
after watching dps for the first time like five or six years ago as a teenager, i liked it, but i didn’t fall in love with it or anything; it definitely piqued my interest bc of the poetry and cute boys, and has remained one of the most enjoyable movies i’ve seen, but it wasn’t something i ever put my full attention on. i knew i wanted to see it again at some point, so i bought a copy off of thriftbooks a couple weeks ago, watched it three times since last sunday, and now it has become my whole entire reason to live !!! so that’s where i am at the moment !! in my early twenties and in love with anything and everything dps (: oh, and i bought one of ethan hawke’s books today. i need people to talk about and share this infatuation with pls
I am Pitts but also Todd.
cameron: hey, how about I text you sometime about the group project?
charlie, visibly texting: I don't have a phone
"What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life." - Walt Whitman
Neil: where’ve you been?
Todd: emotional hell
Charlie: I’m not that great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?
Charlie to Todd: you can’t just give up, is that what a dinosaur would do?
the dps boys driving because i think about this a lot
todd got his license before everyone else because he's the eldest, and he's actually a pretty good driver
pitts got his license last because he's the youngest. he doesn't like driving because he's dyslexic and the signs make him anxious
charlie is the worst driver of them all. he never got a license because he doesnt care for traffic laws enough to learn them and his friends drive him around anyway. he technically can drive, if he really wants to, but its not recommend.
neil transforms into this whole different person while he's driving. he can be just talking to someone, but the moment someone cuts him he'll throw a myriad swear swords and then proceed to continue his conversation with a "sorry honey, what were you saying?"
todd hates when neil is driving because of how angry he gets, but charlie thinks is funny
cameron is the safest driver out of them all. but he drives really slow. like. really slow. nobody likes when cam is driving because of that, but he's just being safe because it's his father's car
meeks drives a really cool car, i know nothing about cars, but he definitely has a cool one. and red.
knox loves meeks' car because its so cool and always asks to borrow it
charlie prefers that meeks drives him because of the same reason. its a damn cool car
Modern dead poets society except they all have no thoughts and the only ones with a brain are Meeks and Cameron
charlie: math was never my strong suit, nor was anything else
neil: ALWAYS REMEMBER THE BUDDY SYSTEM
todd: vomit sweater ready, mom’s sketti, n e r v o u s
meeks: I was an engineer
pitts: this is what it means to go EVEN FURTHER BEYOND
knox: I AM NOT A MASOCHIST
cameron: don’t touch me
