Personal Canon: West Side Story's Anita

Hello! I've been doing a "personal canon" series where I write what happened to a bunch of my favorite characters from old musicals that the movie/play didn't get into. I wrote about West Side Story's Anita here.

Re: This is a great essay, which made me think.
Good point, Petzi. The idea of Maria becoming pregnant by Tony, in all the years that I've been a devout fan of West Side Story, as well as the number of times I've seen the film West Side Story, has never once crossed my mind.

Maria's optimism was the antithesis of Anita's suspicion, and ultimately, hostility, but something tells me that she eventually got over Tony's death and went on with her life, if one gets the drift.

Yet, i wonder if Anita eventually calmed down after having said what she said to the Jets due to their having physically and verbally abused her in Doc's Candy Store, when she wanted to protect Tony against a now-avenging Chino. Possibly. Who knows?
