Thomas "Dwight" Houston is probably the oddest of Windsor 's inhabitants. With a strong view of the occult (and far too many Supernatural marathons), he sees almost everything as being of demonic influence. He dabbles in quite a few arcane subjects, but his favorite is a spritzer of holy water and a bag of rock salt.
This, of course, means that the Tweedles just love to screw with the poor guy's head. On his birthday he gets it doubly - so much so that he locks himself in his room every year to try to get away from the inevitable pranks. Yet he is always tricked out somehow only to come back to his room having been turned into a horror movie set. Despite his bizarre traits, Dwight deeply cares for his Windsor family and is fiercely protective of them.
When Dwight was 13, his 7 year old brother, Alan went missing. Dwight was visiting his other relatives house at the time, and never knew he went missing until 3 days later. When he had found out, Dwight used a pendulum to predict the spot where Alan may be located. He was found lying dead in the exact spot that Dwight had predicted.
He's been playing the violin since he was six but doesn't really do it often. His brother used to like to hear him play so he used to play all the time but now only on occassion.
When Dwight was a baby, only mullet rock could make him fall asleep.
When Dwight was a baby, he was very curious. He wanted to get a hold of everything he saw other people were using.
When Dwight was little, he was scared of the dark. So was Alan. But Dwight pretended he wasn't so he could look after Alan when when his little brother can't sleep.
Dwight as a baby was fearless. Very bossy. Points at things, expects them to be handed to him. He sits up alone at night, he doesn't cry--he plays with his toys. Then he'd pitch them at the baby monitor.
After Alan was born, he was often found visiting the nursery and peeking at the new baby. He likes being allowed to play with him.
One time, a kid Dwight’s age knocked Alan down in the street because he was in the way of their game. Dwight helped his little brother up, then went to the other boy and punched him.
Dwight's favorite word as a toddler was" 'Kay" . He said "okay" a lot because the adults kept using it around him. So he said "Kay" a lot.
Dwight liked to eat liver. He'd steal it off his parents' plates during dinner. He was also a messy eater as a baby.
Dwight's favorite childhood memory is the day Alan learned to walk. "Dwight was sitting on his own with a coloring book. One of his fat crayons rolled away without his notice. It stopped at Alan’s foot. Little Alan, who was wearing squeaky shoes and was holding onto one of the sofas, grabbed it and very carefully squeaked over to where Dwight was.
Alan didn’t exactly stop, he sort of fell all over Dwight’s back, but Dwight realized what had happened and he was very very proud of his baby brother and he thanked him for giving him his crayon back."
His Guardian Angel
Fact is, Agatha always said that Dwight's always been fond of that kind of thing. never been into overdrive until after SPN tho. She said when he was little, he used to giggle in his crib by himself and wave at things that weren't there. And he loved picking up angel figures. The parish priest said that maybe Tommy was talking to his guardian angel. He sure got into a lot of scrapes, falling off places here and there, because he was so curious... But he never got seriously hurt. Like something was looking out for him. So yeah, maybe that's what led to it.
He is the most gullible in Windsor.
The Tweedles once filled his room up wih funeral flowers.
It took Windsor a week to get used to him.
People avoided him a lot during junior high.
His Mom and Uncle came to Parents Night.
He once walked in on Logan and Blaine making out on the steps in front of Windsor.
Reed and Dwight are said to have the lowest self-esteem in Dalton.
When the boys decided to dress up in drag to be Kurt's mothers on Mothers Day, Dwight dressed up in an Emily Dickinson-esque white dress then kept complaining that he looked like the girl from the Grudge. The boys were plotting this for days.
He is in Newman's Ecology and Environmental Studies class. Even though he was a year younger, he was allowed to stay in that class because it was probably the only subject that he really excelled at—and the teachers were desperate to distract him from his other obsessions. Dwight claimed that he was only good at it because he needed to know which times unusual phenomena were natural, and which times they were demonic.
Dwight passed out on Friday the 13th. It's unknown if it was because of fear or a concussion or a combination of both.
His room was filled with weeping Angels by the Tweedles on Friday the 13th.
He locked himself and Todd in their room for Friday the 13th, trying to keep them both safe.
One of the earliest to get up every day at Windsor House.
Memorized the entire layout of Dalton Academy so he knows exactly where he is at all times (more or less).
Enters the old chapel through a back window with a broken shutter.
For Childrens Day, all boys and girls dressed up as their favorite characters as a child. Dwight dressed up as Batman.
Before he got a new uniform, he started to wear it with his sleeves rolled up, and his blazer open.
Dwight can barely fit into his uniform any more.
When Dwight is restless at night, he will get up, escape out a window and wander campus. Han makes sure to keep an eye on him.
Is perpetually the target of horror pranks by the Twins and most of Windsor.
Taking up Latin as an elective.
Once was made to help Mr. Newman carry exam sheets. He saw the difficulty level of the exam and proceeded to freak out and throw salt at it.
There will be a showdown of rock proportions. Haven vs. the Kings. The Kings are Dalton students. It was all Clay's idea. Clay's been going around recruiting. He's roped in Bailey, and the Windsors ganged up to make Dwight represent. Clay's still out terrorizing other houses for members. Hanover volunteered Danny and Jeff.
If Reed were sexiled (kicked out of the room while Kurt and Blaine got it on), the Twins or Dwight would take him in and look after him. Dwight's done it before.
Dwight has a detail poster about the circles of hell and what happens in each circle in his room. Wes asked why he had it, and he replied, "So I can get us all the good real estate."
If Dwight became Windsor Prefect, he'd terrorize the freshmen. He'd insist it was just standard checks, that he won't judge them for unusual things, that it was fine, he just needs to know right now so he can prepare everyone else appropriately. He'd ask them what they are, (ie. vampire, werewolf, warlock, human) and then ask them if they were absolutely sure if they said they were human. He'd then tell them if they were anything but human, he'd find out eventually.
If Dwight were prefect, everyone would get complimentary canisters of salt in each room, a little holy water bottle and rites of exorcism just in case.
Dwight has emergency back up holy water in his room. When Kurt asked why, he insisted it was because everyone has to be prepared.
Dwight insists that Adam wasn't a demon, just demented in truly insane ways.
Riley and Dwight
lMelodie, Souvenir d'un lieu cher op 42 was playing, and Riley and Dwight were playing the song together. Riley was playing the violin while Dwight was on the piano.
After they stopped playing, Dwight stated "I said it earlier, I say it again--you're going faster than you ought to be for that piece."
Then Riley calmly replied with "It's not meant to be as melodramatically slow as you prefer it to be. The maestro prefers it the way I do it."
"Well you can tell the maestro I'm still not joining orchestra."
"Knowing the way you boarders behave, I imagine you'd salt and burn every instrument in it anyway."
"I protect this school, thank you."
"Yes, I'm sure. I'll let the maestro know. I knew it was an exercise in futility."
Then Riley walked out while Dwight glared at him.
"Seriously," Wes glowered at the younger boy. "We're at a beach. You're from *Florida*. Shouldn't you be out there enjoying it instead of hunkering down in the shade like that?!"
Dwight raised his eyes slightly from the massive leatherbound book he was reading. His dark glasses hung low at the bridge of his nose it was already half-coated with the remarkable amounts of sunblock he had slathered on himself and his face. "No."
"We're not here to hunt, we're here to enjoy vacation," Blaine clipped Dwight's elbow, but made a face when he found it equally coated in sunblock. "Are you *marinading* yourself in coppertone--?"
"Sand gets everywhere, it's too hot, when you get in the water it'll be too cold, the water's all salty--"
"You *like* salt! You throw salt everywhere on a day to day basis! You *brought salt here*!!" David gestured wildly to the bag of salt at Dwight's feet.
"I don't wanna go swimming and you can't make me!!" Dwight all but yelled when Wes and Blaine grabbed his wrists and tried to drag him off the beach mat and out of the shade of the gigantic umbrella. Fortunately for Dwight, all that coppertone had the distinct advantage of making him impossible to get a hold off--his hands slipped out of Wes and Blaine's grips and sent the older boys tumbling into the sand.
"Oh for crying out loud, leave him alone," Charlie finally piped up from under the other beach umbrella nearby. "At least he's being quiet and not digging for buried treasure or something."
"I would never be so careless," Dwight retorted indignantly. "That could release all kinds of piratical curses. If I was going to do that, I'd--"
"Never*mind*, Dwight..." David sighed, giving up. He looked up and caught a frisbee from the Twins and then laughed. "Come on, you guys, let's go."
"Stay hydrated," Blaine told him as he went with Wes and David to join the game with the Twins.
Reed chirupped happily as Dwight sat back down with a grumble, picking up the book. He and Spencer were nearby and they were constructing a massive sand castle with alarming detail. "Dwight, you're good with castles right?" Reed asked him. "What do you think we should add?"
"And don't say a moat," Spencer mumbled. He jerked his thumb to where his sister and some Dobry girls were playing volleyball, surrounded by a crowd of very attentive Dalton boys. "Or a cannonade. My sister only cares about defending during a seige."
"You don't have those windows for the archers," Dwight replied after a quick glance at the structure.
"Damn it!" Charlie got up at last when he saw the Stuarts throw an entire cooler full of ice water onto the unsuspecting Tipton brothers, with Logan just smirking as he watched, Julian leaning onto him and barely able to keep standing with his laughter. Charlie pitched a beach sandal at Justin, who was watching the volleyball game.
Justin dodged with mastery earned by practice. "What do we have to sort out now?" he asked.
"Hurry up before--!" Charlie winced as there was a howl from the Stuarts as the Twins hurled a coleman's worth of *actual* ice at them in retaliation. "That!! Come on."
The two prefects headed off to take control of impending mess. After a few moments, they were doing a fairly good job at keeping things under control--Windsor and Stuart battles escalate very quickly--and things had just begun to cool down when Dwight happened to glance up to the water.
Merril, who was nearby and setting out a picnic lunch, noticed the younger boy go perfectly still. "Dwight? Something wrong?"
Dwight practically threw aside the book and he pulled his sunglasses off, staring into the water, his entire body tense with attention. "Oh my god." He instantly rose. "Danny."
Danny, who was kneeling next to Merril, looked up. "What?" He looked to where Dwight was looking. For a moment he seemed to search, and then also grew pale. Puzzled, Reed tried to see what they were looking at, but the waters looked like the normal beach scene.
"Danny," Dwight said again, never looking away, but already reaching for gear. Danny was at his side instantly, also staring.
"Oh my god, how long--"
"I looked up ten seconds ago--go!!"
The last word wasn't necessary, Danny was already running to the water at a sprint. Reed and Spencer got up, alarmed. "What's going on?!" Merril asked, frightened.
Danny leapt into the water and speared it cleanly--he was swimming nowm and the people around them looked startled. On the sand, Dwight bolted off past the dumbfounded Twins, who had just been witnessing the scene, and he grabbed a safety ring before diving in as well. Lifeguards manifested themselves and went after both boys.
Danny swam at top speed with one direct goal--to reach the little boy that he and Dwight saw barely bobbing the water surface seconds ago.
Dwight swam at a desperate pace, going after his competitive swimmer of a schoolmate and the little boy whose head was barely even above water already, his little hands clawing at air and water. Shrieks sounded from the beach when people realized what had been going on.
Swimming furiously into the water, Danny made a last burst of speed and grabbed onto the child, pulling him up to the surface. The little boy was choked and spluttered, Danny holding onto him securely. "I've got you--!" Danny coughed. "I've got you, you're okay--!" The little boy coughed out some water and once his airway cleared enough, he began to cry, clinging onto the high schooler.
Dwight made it within distance to them and threw the ring at Danny. Danny swam to it and clung onto it, heading back to shore with the little boy, the lifeguards already out to meet them. Panting, he gave Dwight a nod as he did, and it was returned by his pale schoolmate.
The Dalton boys at the beach erupted into cheers as the two boys headed back to them looking flushed with exertion and shaken with effort. "Holy Castiel," Dwight sputtered as he swam with the two. Danny just kept careful hold on the little boy and patted him in comfort.
Upon reaching the people at the shallower waters, Danny carefully gave the little boy to the hands of the lifeguard that met them and smiled, looking shaken. He gave the boy's rushing parents a nod before he waded back to the direction of the other Dalton boys.
"I'll be damned," Charlie grinned as Dwight headed back to shore as well. The Windsors cheered and whistled as the Hanovers nearly tackled Danny onto the sand.
"Not bad for someone who doesn't like the beach," grinned Wes as Dwight finally made it back to them.
"We had no idea--!" Reed looked startled. "We didn't think anything was wrong, it's a good thing you both could tell!"
Dwight collapsed onto the beach mat again, facedown, swatting away the Windsors who were trying to celebrate him the way the Hanovers were already all but smothering Danny. "I'm going to sleep."
Blaine grinned down at him. "Rub some coppertone on him, wouldn't want him to burn up."
For the longest time, Reed had problems organizing his closet by himself. When the boxes and boxes of stuff from his mom came in, he naturally had to sort them out--by designer, then by color. Considering how accident prone he is, that was not an easy feat to do, and he often gets helped - so to speak - by whoever Windsor was free at the time.
In the time when Blaine wasn't around, Reed pretty much gave up on getting any proper help from the other boys.
Wes and David couldn't tell designers apart, and Charlie couldn't even tell the difference between casual pants and formal pants, so there goes that idea.
All the twins ever want to do was to play with the accessories and put on the clothes and reenact overdramatic scenes, so they weren't much help either.
When Dwight was around, he just wanted to salt and purify everything. So when Reed became friends with Blaine, he at least had some decent help in sorting things out.
But it wasn't until Kurt when Reed actually properly arranged his entire closet within a day of shipment arrival.
The Snake Incident
They were in the middle of class (the sophomores) and then the Twins poked their heads into the door. “Mr. Newman? Can we speak to Dwight?” Dwight looked up from copying the complete Latin exorcism process. “What? What do you want?” “Did you, against our glorious prefect’s wishes, bring your snake to class?”
The class stared. Dwight looked into his bag, nonchalantly digging through it, “Yeah, I had to keep him in here because Todd said—” he stopped. He moved stuff more in his bag. “…huh. I could’ve sworn he was in here a minute a—” he stops as there is a small hiss and rattle in the silent classroom. “…oh.” Class stampedes out.

Dwight is the White Knight because in spite of all his silliness, he does have his heart in the right place and he can be quite valiant if he wanted to be.
Dwight wasn’t told a whole lot about what happened with Alan. But it would appear that Alan had been out playing by himself. Considering the…uh…”field of interest” that he and his brother shared, that’s the most likely possibility.
He doesn’t like to use Thomas because the family calls him “Tommy”. Dwight was named after his Uncle Tommy—and he didn’t like that particular uncle because he was really short and scrawny as a kid and he always got teased and called a runt. “I’m not a runt! I’m going to be a hero!”
He's afraid of heights and flying, so the Tweedles dragged him onto a sky-diving plane to 'get him over his fears' and then pushed him off. He chipped a nail from clinging onto the plane as they tried to drag him on.

He likes dust.
He thinks Lady Gaga is 'very decorated'.
He used to get teased at his old school for the things he did/liked.
Dwight doesn’t sing in front of people. He’s never sung in front of people. No one KNOWS he’s a great singer. The only person who probably knows is Todd, who gets to hear him sing while he’s in the shower sometimes, but Todd’s never imagined it was significant to mention—the House is already crammed with spectacular singers. (edit: he's sung in front of the school on Hell Night, but still has no interest in becoming a Warbler)
What he looks for in a girl: "(fidget) I don’t know… someone…who’d be nice to hug… soft… smells nice… won’t make fun of me…laugh when I tell jokes…can talk with me about weird things… and her eyes have to laugh, because mom says that’s always a good trait in a girl… she’d let me hold her hand…and she doesn’t mind falling asleep on my shoulder… that kind. Sorry, am I making sense?"
Dwight doesn’t need to dig that deep for a reason to burn a Twilight book. He just loathes it with a passion. That in itself will let him stab the book with a stake.
Dwight—regardless of weather, temperature or season—will always be wearing a coat or an outdoorsy jacket.

Dwight doesn't do love potions or spells. He directs anyone to Drew and Satoru for those.

Dwight's brother Alan was outside, doing his own 'hunting' while Dwight was away, and he got picked up by a stranger and killed.
He did a lot of things that could be considered harmful or dangerous during his silent months. His friends from Serendipity Hill barely kept him afloat.
He's never been kissed.
Wes on Dwight's smoking and followed concussion: "It wasn’t anything that interesting. Charlie told me to rope in the Windsors running around the house since it was almost curfew. I found Dwight outside with a lit cigarette between his fingers and an extremely guilty look when he realized that I caught him. I didn’t say anything. I just went in there, asked for Charlie’s baseball bat, came out and scared him with it. And I accidentally concussed him for real. He was okay." Dwight was out all night because of it.
Dwight has a butler back home. Like Batman does.
His parents had him see some doctors after Alan died when he started…acting strangely. Well, some of them said he was just having problems and he just needed to recover. Someone or another said that there really is something a little wrong with him. Dwight doesn’t know exactly what he is right now, but if they say he’s not entirely bonkers, he’s willing to take that and carry on as is.
CP on the saddest thing he's said to her: “I’m sorry…I’m so sorry, I want another chance. I can do something, anything… I can’t let it happen again. I can’t.”
Kurt and Reed both want to give Dwight a makeover.
On aliens: "(flail) OF COURSE I believe in aliens! How else do you explain Han?!?!?"
He can play Mountain’s Mississippi Queen.
His take on Halloween is that it’s a very dangerous time of the year. He prepares days beforehand against all the nasty things expected to happen.
Dwight is not interested in being a Warbler at all.
He has never met the cast of Supernatural, but he has seen them from a distance. He would like to meet them, though.
Dwight was frighteningly good at crochet. He made a dreamcatcher.

He's Kurt's height.
His Uncle Ford bought him the Impala.

Dwight's claims that Dalton looked like the college out of the Exorcism of Emily Rose at night).
Dwight hasn't planned college. He wants to go cross-country hunting instead.
The closest thing to Dwights's best friend is Todd cause he puts up with everything.
Dwight doesnt go to anyone for advice, help or comfort.
Often when he has “one of those days” he’ll go to a church. Sometimes he’ll go in, sometimes he won’t (when he’s really really bad he’ll sit at a pew for hours—one time a priest even asked if he was okay) but he’ll drop by and be quiet for a little bit, and then he’ll cross himself and leave.
Walked around all night looking in the woods for a lost puppy. He found it.
Is very good on the trampoline—does backflips and everything.
Has his and his brother’s initials on his Impala too.
Once ate a fat worm on a dare.
Hunger Games: With the exception of the few times the Twins participate, Dwight Houston holds distinction of being undefeated in the games.
He managed to not get kissed at New Years by sheer skills. The turning of the new year is often a crucial point of certain unusual phenomena. Plus all the lights were out! Who knew what denizens of the shadows and darkness lurked and took advantage of all of the revelry?! No, no—the Hunter in Dwight Houston knew better and kept well away and kept vigilant, all defenses up!
His shampoo smells like mint. He sings ‘Before It’s Too Late’ in the shower.
If he does need someone to talk to, he’ll talk to Blaine as he’s easiest to talk to. More recently, he’ll talk to Kurt then the twins.
He probably won't be trumpeting a relationship around, but if he felt like grabbing his girl's hand, he'd just do it without thinking. A quick kiss goodbye before a hunting trip? No big deal even if it was in front of other people. So what? If he wanted to express affection he'll just do it simply, uncomplicated. He'll go out of his way for that person because that person is worth his time in doing so. Small gestures, but his confidence in them means a lot.
He gets just a little bit of stubble, barely there, but he likes being clean shaven.
He doesn’t have any body image issues.
He once walked around Windsor wearing shorts and body paint.
He prefers boxers.
Dwight has sung for Alan. He would rock out loud, sometimes Alan would join him. He’d just go crazy with him;. And of course, sings him to sleep sometimes.
He’ll visit Alan on important dates (Christmas, birthdays, All Saints, Winchester Birthdays) but he’ll go on irregular days as well (when he remembers what happens, when he misses him). It can be as often as once a week, or once a month.
If Alan hadn’t of died, Dwight would be *slightly* less over the top, I think. He'd still be Supernatural crazy, but he'd be less...you know, paranoid, suspicious, panicky, and he'd be more trusting... He'd be laughing a lot, and he'd be calling back home every day or talking to Alan over the computer, telling him of his adventures.
The music box is Alan's. The music box is special, because they found it at a garage sale. It didn't work so well when they got it, but with their dad's help, they fixed it together. They let it play a lot. When Dwight hears the song, it's an instant flashback to the days before. It's got hallmarks of their times together. It's the only thing that means more to him than the crystal pendulum.
Everyone thinks of Dwight as the eccentric friend. There is something distinctly off about him but they like him all the same – he’s important to the team and things wouldn’t be the same without him.
The last time Dwight was truly happy was in the middle of the fire after Justin jumped. When he fell down and closed his eyes and he knew his friends were all safe and that he got his friends out. That he did it. And he heard Alan's voice more clearly than he ever heard it since Alan died. He got to hear his brother one more time.
Dwight wouldn’t mind a cuddle. He wouldn't ordinarily *give* a cuddle unless the person needed it. But a cuddle with a girl he trusts is okay. (of course, he'll have all kinds of disclaimers like he did when Laura yanked him down to hide with her...)
He doesn’t take particularly long showers--he does try be very thorough, though. As for cologne, he uses whatever he gets as some kind of present. Recently his mother sent him a bottle of Obsession. His prized possession: His music box.
His proudest moment: When Alan told him that he went to the bathroom at night without Dwight for the first time--he was fully armed with rocksalt, holy water, silver, and had scrawled a protective symbol on his arm before he went, but darn it he went on his own!! XD Dwight glomped him.
He believes that it would take someone crazy to fall for him, so he doesn't actively look. If it happens, it happens. He'd be one of the lucky ones, if it does, then, because he knows his own history and it's not...well... Well "I'm not a Jonas Brother" or something to that effect. So if it comes so be it. Until then, work has to be done.
He hasn't skinny dipped, but he once jumped into a pool and his shorts came off.
Can read hieroglyphics.
Always played the music box once, then never repeated it.
Used to camp in the yard with Alan, surrounded by a salt circle and looking up at the sky.
He wears a wifebeater and shorts in hot days.
He doesn’t like whipped cream.
He has slept naked before.
Todd says that he was working one time and Dwight had a guitar and he was lying on his bed and then suddenly he was singing “The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage” by himself.
There was one more song he played, but it was during a guitar lesson in school. The music teacher (yes, Harvey) asked them each to play whatever they knew. Dwight kind of blinked and started playing All Apologies.
Paul Gilbert- Technical Difficulties (Racer X) was the most complicated song that Dwight could play when Harvey asked.
He likes marshmellow icing.
When he's drunk, he talks about how he'll defend the world from dangers. And about how everyone is crazy.
If the school stays open and Dwight someday advances to prefect (as his schoolmates warn), he'd be the second Dwight Houston to do so.
After the birth of Jared Padalecki's son Thomas, Dwight doesn't mind being called Thomas anymore.
He’s looking forward to turning 22 and developing powers. ANY powers.
Dwight was the one who held Blaine's hands and told him about Shane's accident. Dwight was shaking so much.
Dwight knows a fair bit about sex - just standard stuff.
When he has sex for the first time, he wants it to be special. With candles.
Dwight would have Impala sex, since Dean's done it before.
If Dwight ever encountered a topless girl, he'd politely avert his eyes, get flustered and stumble away.
Dwight is very good with kids - he can calm them down right away.
Dwight's now around 6 foot.
Dwight isn't stick thin anymore, and he's broadened his shoulders.
He's also less pale as he's eating a lot more.
He has a nanny named Frieda.
Dwights voice is changing.
Dwight's hair is getting longer.
He sings in the shower.
Dwight once awoke covered from head to foot in iridescent white glitter. He spent the rest of the day terrorizing Windsors by tackling them. That's WHILE covered in glitter. It took them about three months to get rid of all traces.
When they "camp" in their front yard, if Alan gets too spooked at night while they sleep, he will get out of his sleeping bag and sneak in to his brother's. Dwight keeps his bag unzipped for that reason, and will wake up if he feels Alan climb in. He will make sure to put a fresh layer of salt around their ring to make Alan feel better, and then he'd play the music box to lull Alan back to sleep, and climb back into the bag and they would both sleep again.
Dwight's house in Florida is beachside.
Dwight's dad left after Alan disappeared, he couldn't handle it.
Doesn’t play as much anymore, but he makes sure his violin remains in perfect condition.
Fixes his car when he’s not patrolling, snooping, or basically lurking around campus.
Does not belong into any extracurricular clubs.
Was given a sterling silver dagger by his Uncle Ford.
Adds a little something extra from his lunch to his little brother’s before they separate for the day.
Has an autographed Supernatural poster hanging in his room which he won off a contest back in Florida.
Spent most of the WWoHP trip with the Windsors in Hogsmeade, stuffing his face.
Has never met Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki in person. However, he *has* spotted Misha Collins from a distance. But wasn’t able to do anything about it because he fainted.
Enjoys dancing like crazy and singing when all alone.
Often shares break-in techniques with the twins.
Has a habit of looking after little animals he stumbles across, sometimes feeding them.
Another reason he’s attentive to animals is because they’re more attuned to detecting malignant forces than humans.
Often difficult to wake when asleep.
Prefers cocoa over coffee most of the time, but will go for the latter when he really needs to be awake.
Not fond of snow or snowy days, prefers to be huddled up indoors.
Dwight does seem happy, when in the company of fellow Windsors. He'll never admit that though.
When all the boys got together to read scary stories to each other, Dwight was as restless as a cat tossed into a swimming hole. He lay a salt line that was really thick. He also had a devil's trap all around him.
After the divorce, Agatha dropped her husband's last name, and Dwight asked to have it dropped from his also. He was very unhappy about his father just...dematerializing like that.
Dwight's birth last name is Perry (his father's name). If you were to look at articles involving Alan, the last name would be that. This is why so few of the Dalton boys were able to figure out what happened to Dwight that made him that way--Houston doesn't crop up the results as well as looking for Alan Houston-Perry.
The Houstons own theme parks, but the Perry's are into oil, mainly. This is another reason why our favorite hunter is a born a rich kid.
Dwight owns quite a few coats. Many of them's got lots of pockets to keep stuff in.
The Houstons' have an outdoor shower at the beach house.
Agatha's had to yell his full name a lot, and maybe Kurt has as well. He'd be out the window, in tree house, in the secret passages, in the fort, under the bed, in the closet, ANYWHERE to avoid what was to come.
Todd says apparently, Trinity and Dwight see eye to eye on some things.
When Julian mentioned he'd talked to Rob Patterson, Dwight threw rocksalt over him and yelled, "YOU WERE IN CONTACT WITH THE SPARKLY ONE." before walking off.
Dwight'd is learning parkour real fast especially since that freshman Neil already does parkour. The two of them would literally be bouncing off walls.
Dwight's father is still well off. He's not remarried but he's seeing someone. And he does check on Dwight every once in a while, and he gets to see him every once in a while, but sometimes he doesn't show, so Dwight doesn't really feel much about it either way. He did call Agatha after the fire at Dalton, however. Checked in on him.
The last thing Dwight ever said to Alan was, "I'll be back soon, okay? If you need me, just call, I'll be there."
Dwight once was so groggy in the morning that he faceplanted into a cereal bowl and kept sleeping.
When there's a chocolate cereal in the pantry, he goes for that.
Ford was worried about his nephew after the whole thing with Alan. Like the rest of his family, he tried to talk him up, or get him to thinking about other things. So he talked to him while having him help fix cars. Dwight didn't answer back, but he was helpful, especially after Ford said that if he was going to get an Impala, he better be able to take good care of it.
Dwight can do cartwheels. And back handsprings. He's a ninja.
If dared, maybe he'd eat a witchetty grub. If for the sake of the human race, yes.
He has weird dreams sometimes.
He doesn't hold much interest in motorcycles. He knows what he knows about them through Sadie.
The twins like scaring Dwight best because it's easy. "His tenacity makes it interesting." "It makes us more creative."
Han is quite willing to make a cosplay video with him, Dwight and Neil.
Dwight thinks Julian is a incubus and Blaine and the twins agree.
Before Dwight got around to watching Teen Wolf, he thought Stiles and Derek were the main characters.
Dwight takes werewolves very seriously.
Dwight talked to Mr. Newman about genetics regarding eye color, and it then he realized Dwight was talking about the wolves from Teen Wolf so he sighed and told him to run along and look it up in the library.
Fathers Day: Dwight has given his father a present every year (except for the year he went mute, but then...they both weren't really talking well to each other). Small things. But after the divorce, he wasn't sure if his father even saw them. He just sends them. His father figure, Ford, had started getting presents from him after the divorce. Also small things. Ford liked to go in the house and laugh and say, "Look, Dwight got me something too! XD" and open it in front of Agatha and the other people. He seemed to like them all. Even thanked Dwight for being such a "sport" and giving him one for the sake of the day.
A taller, skinnier male, so pale that he was almost translucent, the only color on him being his lips (red from perpetual nervous biting), and the crop of black hair contrasting powerfully against his pallor.
All boys and some girls had a jousting competition. Everyone rode a horse, and used an eleven-foot log to try and knock off their opponents. Dwight is very good with riding on horses, so he may do well. The houses Windsor, Stuart, Hanover and Lancaster have agreed that whichever house "wins" will be served by all the other houses in a big cookout.
Dwight was facing off against Thad from Stuart. When the raced towards each other, Dwight was screaming though it was more out of fear and adrenaline than anything, and to everyone’s shock, Dwight dodged Thad’s lance. Thad was taken by surprise and was thrown off the horse. When Dwight made it back to Windsor side, he was badly scared, shaking and pale.
For round two, he was up against Isaac from Lancaster. When the flag dropped, their lances clashed and Isaac was pushed back from the force, while Dwight was hit full in the chest, tipping over and nearly falling off, but he grabbed the saddle and stayed up, screaming in pain. He was struggling when he got back to his side, and Charlie had to tell him to calm down and comfort him while he took the armor off.
His gorget had been torn upward, a chunk of lance going into his chest. He was screaming at Charlie to get it out but he was thrashing around too much. Kurt had to calm him down and make him stay still. They got Dwight’s attention and then Charlie yanked the chunk of lance out, immediately stopping the wound with a bandage. Dwight then started to laugh hysterically despite gripping Kurt’s hand so hard it was hurting the older boy. He refused to pull out from the match and said he’d had worse in the art hall.
He said he was a knight. Charlie then ordered the others to get his armor ready. Dwight then raced off for round two. Dwight went flying, slamming to the ground shoulders first. Dwight was calling out that it hurts, so the others carried him off. He's got these horrid discolorations all over him--bruising and all.
Castiel The Owl
Dwight now has a pet pygmy owl. When it arrived at Windsor, the twins slapped a name tag on the box "H, y name is Castiel!" before running off. The other boys then all came to peep in the box. It bit Wes.
Dwight then came in and saw the box and the boys gave it to him. Dwight took the box and headed out the door; the twins asked what he was doing. Dwight said he couldn't keep it, and Blaine asked why, where Dwight replied "One, owls are not meant to be pets. Two, I'm not licensed to keep one. Three, IT'S AN OWL. It should be in a proper bird of prey center. I'm not going to totally not care about it. I'm just putting it in the center, and I can still visit it. Besides. I don't want Hogwarts to know I'm already in another school, they mightn't take me!" which is when the boys laughed.
Charlie said "I was this close to believing it, and then he says that." Dwight will keep visiting the center and learning exactly how to care for it. He'll probably not quit until he'd earned a license of some kind and be able to care for Castiel by himself.
Dwight would like nothing more than to keep little Cassie with him, but he doesn't think he has the resources to keep him alive long enough, so he'll make sure he survives first while he learns how to look after him.
Someone once left an electric guitar by itself in the Windsor common. Everyone was elsewhere, but from that floor, they heard what was unmistakably the opening guitar rifts to Hand of Blood. When they went to see who the hell that was, they didn’t find anyone.
Except for a bit of salt on the floor. Seriously, they looked up and peeked out their rooms going, “WHOA, who the HELL is doing that??” and then no one. So to this day only Han knows. That was the first time it had happened. They purposely left bait (instruments) around. That’s how they eventually found out Dwight had musical background.
The “mystery musician” ignored the drums, and the flute. But they heard a bass line go off. And the acoustic guitar played.. The crowning moment was when someone left a violin. And then Helena in string quartet version happened. Todd eventually was the one who said that he wasn’t curious about the musician. Because he’s heard the same things from his roomie before.
Bringing Alan Back
Dwight has tried to bring Alan back via occult rituals and such. This was prior to all the therapy he had to undergo once his parents found out what he was doing (this was months of the silence). Even when he tried to do all those things, he was aware that it wasn’t going to work.
Maybe because he couldn’t have done it correctly or accurately, or maybe it just wasn’t the right kind of spell or ritual — and finally, maybe he just knew, in the back of his mind, that Alan really wasn’t going to come back.
By The Pool
They all crashed Dwight's place and Dwight was in the water of his pool and swimming well and then he got up and lay back onto a towel, wearing nothing but shorts and laying in the sun, with the water dripping off him and running a hand through his hair as he closed his eyes against the summer light.
And then because he felt that he was starting to burn a little and he slathered on some sunscreen onto his surprisingly strong body--strong because of all his hunting escapades and bendy athletic capabilities. And when he slipped on sunglasses, earbuds and started casually singing highway to hell.
One time, while he was in Dalton, Dwight found a lone pot of heather flowers. He thought it was strange, because it was the only one of its kind in the garden path, and didn't seem to fit in anywhere in particular. Heather means protection. He picked up the pot and started looking after it by himself. He sometimes goes to Charlie asking questions how to grow it.
He found out the reason why it was alone--because all the others of its kind had died in the garden. He felt sorry for it, being alone, so I suppose that's why he decided to look after it. To randomly pick up a pot of flowers and look after it just like that? I think he's strange, but it's the way he is.
National Brothers Week
For National Brothers Week, Dwight went to the cemetery to go sit with Alan. He cleared away all the old things and replaced them with new ones. He spoke to Alan, saying that he missed him and how he was sorry that they couldn't meet up again when Alan had come to see him in the burning building.
He told Alan to thank the nice man up there who lkes to sing. Dwight said he didn't want to lose everything again, so their reunion will be delayed. He said hunters keep fighting even when they want to stop, so he'll keep going on.
About his parents on his 'cause': "Mom’s not really thrilled, you know…after all the damage I do to the house… She puts up with it, but I can tell that she’s trying really hard not to freak when I show her my jar of dove blood."
He has a crossbow with silver quarrels.
Dwight most likely paints symbols on the walls to 'protect the house'
He buys salt by the bag full every weekend but cleans it up himself.
To date, Dwight has attempted to exorcise (and/or burn down) Stuart House, most especially Logan twenty-eight times.
On how far he'd go to protect a girl: "I’d go to a crossroads and make a deal for her sake."
He doesn't hunt in churches because he likes to just sit and think there, as it's quiet.
A love of occult and supernatural things is something that Dwight and Alan shared. Dwight continues on because he really just believes that sort of thing…and it continues to be one of the few links to Alan that he has left.
He got sick and immediately went outside to try and find the demon who made him sick. He was screaming about yellow fever and said that if the twins didn't let him hunt, he'd die of a heart attack. He believed he got sick because the demons wanted him vulnerable and wide open for assault.
He’s always been interested in the Supernatural kind of thing. But it didn’t actually get to crazy levels until he and Alan started seeing Supernatural.
On the Inferi: He would find himself honor-bound to obliterate them with extreme prejudice and to strike with absolute bloody-minded brutality.
Dwight was banned from the library for throwing rock salt at the shelves because he wanted research to exorcise the bell tower.
He carries a spritz bottle full of holy water everywhere he goes "just in case"
Will surreptitiously hide protection medallions all around his friends’ rooms.
Dwight arranges his books according to subject, and then alphabetically. Demonology, witchcraft, angels, calculus…
Sadie, Lucas and Morgan have interrupted/saved Dwight from his numerous attempts at resurrecting Alan; they kept him afloat during his silent months after Alan’s death.
Laura and Sadie saved Morgan, Dwight, and Lucas from the undead once (AU most likely).
He is the leader of the Serendipity Hill Hunters.
Still gets up early even when at home—makes one patrol in the mornings, makes another patrol in the evening.
Has a large collection of books about demonology which he orders online and gets shipped to school.
Owns a variety of weapons, including bows and arrows, crossbows and quarrels, a mace, daggers, swords, throwing knives, butterfly knives, shuriken, flying weights, katana, and more unusual weaponry—but most of them are kept in his room at home—and locked away.
Has drawn four dozen sigils and symbols hidden away in Windsor House alone.
Has memorized the entire exorcism rites as dictated by the Roman Catholic Church.
Hasn’t planned on going to college but would like to go someplace with a big demon infestation problem.
Dwight once told Lucas, "Damn it, Luke, sometimes your little sister makes a better hunter than you do. Get it together, man!"
Family finance ranking: Laura (for ancestry reasons), and then Dwight, then Luke, then Morgan and Sadie.
Morgan's pretty well off. He's also got an impressive library. When they go over at Morgan's, that's the first place they go to--he's usually in there. It's also the reason Dwight frequents Dalton's library--he's so used to getting references from books because of Morgan's library.
They all like books, but it's Dwight, Sadie, and Morgan in particular who are into the reference stuff. Laura and Luke (Lucas) are more into getting into action.
Although on the SHH focus, the fact that Luke and Dwight are cousins is the main focus. Their mothers are first cousins, so they are too.
Lucas says about him, Morgan and Dwight, "The girls kinda have to save our butts sometimes."
Morgan has a Hummer which doubles as the team "gunship". It was Sadie who, at some point, commented while they were all in the Hummer that it felt very "Scooby Doo" that they were a group of misfits crammed into a single "transport" going out to hunt ghosts. Lucas said the words Mystery Machine and got thrown books at by Morgan and Dwight.
Dwight was on speakerphone with Lucas during the Miami Heat game but had to ignore him at the end because Lucas was just screaming his head off.
Dwight would call Lucas and Lucas would still be sleeping in, and Little Kelly gets the phone: "Lucas!" "No, sir, this is Hunter Kelly reporting sir." "Oh. Hi, Kelly. Please wake Lucas up and tell him he's late for our hunt!" "Yes, sir!~" And then Kelly goes upstairs and JUMPS onto Lucas. "WAKE UP!! DANGER! DEMONS!!" And Lucas has to groan and wake up and get her to settle down. Kelly doesn't go with them but she does her best protecting their house as the house guard.
Conversation Before Dalton
"...are you gonna be okay?"
"I should be... My uncle went to that school, he said it was alright."
"Well, you know you can call us anytime, right?"
"I know that..."
"...have you packed all your stuff?"
"That reminds me. Sadie, I will need your set of crystals. Morgan, I need my rune books. Lucas, my weapons."
"You're still going hunting there??"
"Like I have a choice? I've been thoroughly studying that school's extensive history and it's sounds like it could definitely be a hotbed of things I should be looking out for. I should go prepared."
"Lemme see that brochure."
"...oh man, dude, you're going to need more than the stuff you packed!"
"...what?! I CAN'T GO THERE UNPREPARED!!"
"Okay calm down, we can handle this, we have time."
"Gimme everything! Hurry! We're off on a supplies trip! Go!"
"Here we go again..."
Conversation With Kelly
"Hey, Kelly. What are you doing here?"
"'porting for duty, Mr. Hunter sir."
"S'your big brother here?"
"Lucas's talking to Auntie Aggie."
"Oh great. Time to hide my salt."
The original list of names, the Roster, was written many years back, on a piece of yellowing, blue-ruled paper. At the top, it says, The Hunters of Serendipity Hill. The first name was Thomas Dwight Perry. The second name was Alan Bryce Perry. And then, in different inks, as though one after the other, were the names Lucas Walters, Morgan Powell, Sadie Moore, and finally, in the newest of the inks, was Laura Bancroft.
Throughout the years, the Roster looked a little abused, wrinkled and aging. The first name had the Perry crossed out in ink, and replaced by Houston instead. The second name, though the person in question no longer walked the world, remained, and no one ever made any reference whatsoever to ever crossing it out, or removing it. It remains there to this day.
The Serendipity Hill Hunters lives by the code that "best friend" is not a single position--it's a tier. Dwight has his close friends at Dalton, that's finite. But his friends at the SHH are also his friends, at the same tier, just in a different location. Just because they're back home, unable to look after Dwight, doesn't mean they don't mean as much and vice versa.
Let's be real--if you and your friend from home go to different schools in different states, you cannot be there for them physically 100% of the time, but that doesn't make it any less a friendship when you come home and see each other, or even when you pick up the phone and call, or skype.
What's important is the bond between them. Now, while the Dalton boys are Dwight's cushion of friends that keep him from bouncing off the walls full time, the SHH are his homebound airbag/safety net combo who have been his friends loyally for years.
That is not an exaggeration, that is fact--Lucas and Dwight are cousins and Sadie grew up with them and there came Morgan to help rein the gang of them in. They were there in the good times of hunting and shenanigans, and they were there in the bad, throughout Alan's disappearance and Dwight's near utter deterioration and self-destruction.
For them to trust in the Dalton boys to keep Dwight from doing that while at school is a big thing. It's like packing off a puppy to a different kennel and telling them "I will shoot an arrow into your asscheeks if something happens to this puppy while we leave him in your hands." That kind of thing.
They're Dwight's close friends still, and they're tightly knit, and they care deeply, to the point that Dwight won;t call them unless absolutely necessary because they were the people you call in when you were in an honest to god real emergency and you can then expect the apocalypse to come with them when they arrive.
They are the FINAL option. (that and, if he called them to ask about help for some of the things he got up to while at school, they were likely going to scold him for being cray and reckless and no, he's busy right now hunting, thanks HE CAN HANDLE THIS).
They're tight even though they're long distance, and they care enough to shatter through glass and windowpanes and the mistaken belief that you could call a soul back from the dead. Or at least, that if you try, they will haul you back from wherever you've gone to, and keep you in one piece.
