She's the King of New York » by Pineapples And Papes Katherine Plumber has been pulled into the center of the Newsboys strike during just before the turn of the century. See her part of the strike through her eyes as she experiences feelings and situations she never thought she would. The story begins during King of New York.

Rise of the Delanceys by Newsies4Eva A one-shot in which Race gets more trauma, and the Delanceys come into the picture for the first time. Pretty angsty, and totally not inspired by real events that happened to one of my brothers. Noooooooooo...

201We Are Newsies » by VeronicaWeasley The same old story, the same old song. A tale in which the newsies of Lower Manhattan go on strike, and David Jacobs gets roped into it. High School AU set in 1999. Told through the eyes of multiple characters. Rated T because, y'know, newsboys curse.

The Story of the Delancey Brothers » by Newsies4Eva The Delancey Brothers weren't always big and bad. They actually had a good life at one point! But the newsies messed that up for them, and they will ALWAYS hate them for that. (pictured as Livesies Delanceys, not OBC) Basically my take on how the Delanceys got to how they are in the musical, and maybe their perspective of the strike, I don't know we'll see.
