gif:heathers

my personal thoughts on heathers(characters & relationships)

- none of the heathers are innocent, they were all equally horrific. that being said, yes they all suffered and that’s horrible and I do believe they should be forgiven, but never forget they were terrible. because they were, just awful.

- Veronica wasn’t innocent. she was kinda a b word sometimes.

- Martha was bullied and belittled. she shouldn’t have tried to kill herself because IT IS NEVER THE SOLUTION but she was bullied. poor Martha. she was annoying as a character because of her lack of character, but still, poor Martha.

- kurt and ram. what bullies. they were the worst. attempted rape. homophobic. the whole shebang. BUT IF YOU SHIP KRAM THATS OK. just cause they suck doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to ship them. I ship them sometimes. you do you.

- jd oof. this is a toughie. one of my first musical crushes….too bad you’re a murderer. yes, jd is a murderer and that is wrong! BUT IF SOMEONE LIKES JD AND YOU LOOK DOWN UPON THEM FOR THAT PLEASE REEVALUATE. HE IS A CHARACTER. HE IS NOT REAL. CHILL OUT. the dude had a super messed up home life and just wanted to help the world, but went about it in the wrong way. I think he had good intentions, but bad execution. he saved Ronnie in the end, though, didn’t he? then again she wouldn’t have been in danger if he would have just BAKED BROWNIES AND GONE BOWLING! I have many feels with this character.

- heather Mac/ronnie. ok just cause heather Mac gave Veronica a hug in the bathroom and started being less sucky does it erase her bullying the entire school. she sucked. she sucks less now. good for her. BUT IF YOU SHIP IT GO OUT AND BE FREE. GO SHIP YOUR SHIP. BE HAPPY. 

- jdronica. “its toxic how could you ship it blah blah blah”. please quiet yourselves. jd was a bad boyfriend. he murdered some people. yes. but once again PEOPLE CAN SHIP WHATEVER THEY WANT TO SHIP STOP SHIP SHAMING THEM. they were canon. it was an adorable couple for ten minutes. let these people live in that ten minutes. 

- ok to sum everything up…..THEYRE NOT REAL PEOPLE. THEYRE CHARACTERS. LET PEOPLE HAVE THEIR SHIPS AND CHARACTERS. STOP RUINING IT. REALLY. JUST BE NICE AND POSITIVE AND POLITEFULLY DISAGREE, PLEASE. BUT ONCE AGAIN YOU DONT HAVE TO DO THAT CAUSE I DONT RULE YOUR LIFE. BUT IF YOU WERE NICE ABOUT SHIPS AND CHARACTERS IM SURE SOME OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR FANDOM WOULD APPRECIATE IT. ok I’m cool I apologize for how worked up I got thank you for your consideration *curties, places bow back on rack, walks away*

  • Heathers: I am a musical adaption of a old movie about a girl in high school who gets involved with the popular girls.
  • Me: Eh,sounds cliche.
  • Heathers: And then she starts dating a psycho who kills people and tries to blow up the school
  • Me: ...wow
  • Be more chill: I am a musical about a nerdy teen with a closeted friend,the first whose tries to get the attention of the girl he likes
  • Me: Sounds kinda relatable I guess
  • Be more chill: So he installs a supercomputer on his brain,that latter tries to brainwash everyone
  • Me: ...Ok,then
  • Dear Evan Hansen: I am a musical about lonely socially awkward kid with a broken arm
  • Me: Oh boy,whats the catch
  • Dear Evan Hansen: He fakes emails about being best friends with a dead gay dude,opens a suicide help organisation in honor of him,but still feels guilty about the whole situation.
  • Me: ...Why is this the most normal sounding plot of the three?
Musical fandom gripes

• Listen to the popular musicals!!! Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Les Misarables, West Side Story. Theres a reason they’re so popular! Please listen to all of them at least once.

• Please don’t fall into the trap of only listening to the musicals that are popular now. Yes theyre great musicals and I enjoy them as much as the next person, but listen to some musicals that not many people talk about.

• You don’t have to have ready acess to professional Broadway musicals to be a fan of theatre. Many cities and towns have community theatres that put on amazing performances! You can also try out for parts in plays here if youre interested in that aspect!

• If you do have the lucky opportunity to see your favorite musical, please don’t hound the actors at the stage door. They are people who just got off of work. Theyre stagedooring because they want to, not because theyre obligated to. Respect that.

• On that note, please be respectful of the theatre venue and staff. Don’t leave trash on the floor, dont cheer or laugh at inappropriate times, listen if an usher tells you to stop doing something. The rules are in place to keep the place looking nice and the actors from getting distracted.

• For the love of everything that is beautiful, dont record during the performance. It is illegal and as someone who has a lot of ushering experience, it is a major pet peeve of mine.

• If you make animatics or fanart, the costumes dont have to be exact! Take librites, have fun!

• The characters arent perfect and make mistakes. Please dont overglorify them. I’ve heard this is an issue in a couple musical fandoms.

Keep in mind, these are my pet peeves and gripes; not an attack on you. I love theatre and want to share it with as many people as possible. Especially people who arent very into it but would probably like it.
