“JD didn’t really love Veronica. He was just using her to kill people.”
“JD did really love Veronica. He killed people for her and that makes it all okay and romantic.”
“Veronica never really loved JD. She used him to kill people.”
JD really did love Veronica, and Veronica really did love him. They truly did love each other. However, their love does not excuse the fact that JD murdered three people. Murder is not romantic, and JD isn’t a precious angel.
Veronica had no idea that JD was going to kill anyone, and she did everything a realistic 17-year-old could do in her situation.
“Heather M. struggled with anxiety and depression and that’s really sad. She deserves sympathy and a second chance.”
“Heather M. is sad so it’s okay that she bullied people to the brink of suicide and almost set Veronica up to be raped. She’s a precious cinnamon roll who never did anything wrong.”
No. Heather M. still did a lot of shitty fucking things that she should apologize for. However, upon reflecting on her feelings she is able to redeem her character by the end of the story for her deserved second chance.
Do people realize that you can like a character and still understand that what they did was shitty and wrong? And that most characters are more than one trait. Like, not everything in the world is black and white.
The whole JD thing is like Tate Langdon all over again.
An unpopular teen in their senior year is suddenly thrust into popularity as a fellow student’s suicide becomes the talk of the school. The main character, guided by the ghost of the dead student, pulls off an egregious lie that tears them apart morally and considers suicide- but ultimately ends the story looking towards a brighter future and a better tomorrow.
also despite how shit it sounds, i’m still heathers 101-positive: I recognise that it’s a crappy high school version that is nowhere near as good as the original, yet I still see that it is a high school version. for high schools. written to be pg-13. yikes. chill u guys.
