before they even started dating soda and meli were each others best friends. for forever she’s been the closest to him besides dally. they both started to develop feelings for each other when meli was living with them while dally was away. they both have trouble sleeping so would stay up talking really late and actually fell asleep on the couch together a few times. one time soda saw meli sitting on the curb right outside the curtis' house recently after dally got back from new york. she was so embarrased that he saw her crying so she tried to push him away and run off but he caught up to her and said, "meli, i love you. i have for a while now. you don't have to hide your emotions from me. of course i hate seeing you sad but you need to let your feelings out and i want to be there for you. will you be my girlfriend?" and the rest is history. now that they are a couple they spend basically all the time together that they can.

meli is dallas winston's younger sister. meli is 2 years younger. their parents were abusive to them, and then left when meli was 5. her and dally had no idea what to do other than stick together. luckily, the curtis’s took them in and they lived with them for a while. that was until the Curtis' parents passed away. after that Dally just felt like he was he was in darry's way of parenting soda and ponyboy and that’s when they started spending most of their nights at bucks. and then, dally wanted to spend some time away so meli moved back into the curtis’s while dally was gone. those were the worst months of meli's life without her brother. then he came back and meli was so happy to move back in with her brother, but he was different and would get drunk all the time and it almost seemed like he didn’t care about his life anymore and was sleeping around with girls. that’s when she would go to the curtis’s basically every night and she would sleep on their couch or with soda cause he was always awake or she would go find johnny in the lot.

after Dally died, meli was the biggest mess ever. she basically stopped functioning for about 6 months. the only reason she didn’t kill herself was because of soda. after a while she became more herself again but still wasn’t the same. soda and meli left and moved to New York like meli always dreamed of. it helped her cope with her brothers death and eventually became as happy as ever. soda got hired as a manger of a chain of gas stations in New York. they got married and meli became a stay at home mom with their 3 kids, dallas, morgan, and steve.
