A/N: Here it is!! This was partially inspired by some requests I got for this, and partially inspired by my Heathers!AU with @memeing-through-a-window
“Hello everyone! To those of you who do not take drama as a class, I am Mr Reyes. I will be directing this production.” Mr Reyes said, and there was a spattering of applause across the auditorium.
“Now, I’m sure you’re all dying to find out your roles in our upcoming production of Heathers. Here we go.” Mr Reyes said, and everyone inhaled sharply.
I crossed my fingers and looked over at my best friend Zoe, her eyes shut tightly in anticipation.
“In the role of Martha Dunnstock, Alana Beck.” Mr Reyes said and we all clapped politely, looking at Alana who was smiling brightly.
“The role of Kurt Kelly goes to Jake Dillinger, and Ram Sweeney goes to Richard Goranski.” A celebratory whoop came from a few rows back, and I chuckled at the boys’ reaction.
“The roles of Mr Kelly and Mr Sweeney will go to Michael Mell and Jeremy Heere.” I smirked slightly, knowing that Mr Reyes was slightly sneaky with his casting of those roles.
“Mr and Mrs Sawyer will be played by Chloe Valentine and Brooke Lohst.” I clapped softly, glancing over at the pair.
“And now, onto the Heathers themselves. Due to the lack of women interested in this production, we have had to give some of our Heathers to the men.” Mr Reyes said, and I snorted, drawing some attention.
“Heather McNamara will be played by Evan Hansen, and Heather Duke will be played by Jared Kleinman. Heather Chandler, our only female Heather, will be played by Zoe Murphy.” Mr Reyes said, and I squeezed Zoe’s hand.
She was smiling widely, and I knew she was going to crush it as Heather Chandler.
“The lovely Christine Canigula will be playing Ms Fleming.” Christine beamed at Mr Reyes, and I felt very happy for her.
“This leaves our two leading roles. Jason Dean will be played by Connor Murphy, and Veronica Sawyer goes to Y/N Y/L/N! Congratulations to you all.” Mr Reyes said, and I looked over at Connor, my eyes wide.
I’d been crushing on Connor since freshman year of high school, and here we are, freshman year of college, and those feelings haven’t gone away.
“Now, rehearsals will start next Wednesday, so be ready. The original cast recording is somewhere online, so listen to it. That’s all.” Mr Reyes said, ushering us out of the auditorium.
As soon as we were out the double doors, I was bombarded with various congratulations.
“You’re so lucky, oh my god.” Zoe said, wrapping me in a side hug. I felt my cheeks go pink, and I smiled gratefully at her.
“Thanks. I do, however, have to have fake sex with your brother onstage. You know how I feel about him, Zo.” I said and Zoe cackled, throwing her head back.
“Well, let’s just say things might end up working out for you two.” She said, winking at me. My cheeks went a brighter pink, and I went to say something, but was interrupted by someone coughing.
I whirled around to see Connor standing there, his hair partially covering his face.
“Hey Y/N. Can I talk to you for a sec?” Connor asked and I nodded, glancing back briefly at Zoe.
Connor shot me a half smile, and walked away. I trailed behind him, jogging slightly.
“So, what’s up?” I asked, catching my breath a little. Connor rocked back and forth on his heels, and I frowned slightly.
“Well, I was just wondering, seeing as we’re going to be spending a lot of time together onstage and in rehearsals, if maybe you wanted to go grab some lunch with me?” Connor asked, wringing his hands together.
My cheeks went a bright shade of pink, and I nodded eagerly. “Absolutely. I mean, yeah, of course.” I said, realising I was probably coming on too strong.
“Awesome. I’ll, uh, meet you here at 12. Today.” Connor said and I smiled brightly at him. “Bye Y/N.” He said, and I waved him off.
“You guys are coming along incredibly. Everyone except Y/N and Connor can go.” Mr Reyes said, and I glanced over at Connor awkwardly.
Everyone else trailed out of the auditorium, until it was just Connor, Mr Reyes and I left.
“Now, I thought you two would appreciate not having everyone else in the room for this next song.” Mr Reyes said and I gulped, looking at Connor with wide eyes.
“I think you two both know which song I’m talking about. We won’t go through the full choreography just yet, but we still need to start rehearsing it.” Mr Reyes said, patting the both of us on the shoulder.
I took in a deep breath and walked up onto the stage, fidgeting with my blazer. I wasn’t in my proper costume, but I was wearing an outfit that resembled my costume.
“From the top, you two.” Mr Reyes said, pressing play on the music. It started playing and I bit my lip.
“The demon queen of high school has decreed it. She says Monday eight am, I’ll be deleted.” I sang, glancing over at Connor briefly.
“They’ll hunt me down in study hall. Stuff and mount me on the wall. Thirty hours to live, how shall I spend them?” I sang, walking forward a little.
“I don’t have to stay and die like cattle. I could change my name and ride up to Seattle. But I don’t own a motorbike.” I looked up at Connor, who was now lying down on the raised platform.
“Wait. Here’s an option that I like. Spend these thirty hours getting freaky! I need it hard, I’m a dead girl walking. I’m in your yard, I’m a dead girl walking.” I sang, walking up the platform stairs.
“Before they punch my clock, I’m snapping off your window lock. Got no time to knock, I’m a dead girl walking.” I sang, standing in front of Connor, who was now on his feet.
“Veronica. What are you doing in my room?” Connor asked, and I shushed him, waving my hand about wildly. Mr Reyes chuckled, and I took in a deep breath.
“Sorry, but I really had to wake you. See, I’ve decided I must ride you till I break you.” Connor’s eyes widened at this line, and Mr Reyes’ laughter increased.
“Heather says I gots to go, you’re my last meal on death row. Shut your mouth, and lose them tightie whities. C'mon!” I sang, undoing my blazer.
“Tonight I’m yours, I’m your dead girl walking. Get on all fours, kiss this dead girl walking.” I said, shoving Connor down by his shoulders.
“Let’s go, you know the drill. I’m hot, and pissed, and on the pill. Bow down to the will of a dead girl walking.” I sang, trying to keep my voice even as Connor’s hands crept up near the hem of my skirt.
I crouched down, looking Connor in the eye. I noticed that one of his eyes was coloured differently, and I felt my heart lurch.
“And you know, you know, you know. It’s cause you’re beautiful. You say you’re numb inside, but I can’t agree.” I sang, putting my hands on Connor’s chest.
His chest was surprisingly firm, and his face was rapidly reddening. “So the world’s unfair. Keep it locked out there. In here it’s beautiful. Let’s make this beautiful.”
“That works for me.” I pressed my lips to Connor’s, and kissed him with fervour. He kissed back eagerly, and I pulled off my blazer, still keeping our lips together.
I pulled off his shirt, and I let out a gasp at the sight of his bare chest. I pulled away from the kiss, and noticed Connor’s eyes cloud with something dark.
I pushed him down so he was on his back, and I was straddling him, my legs wrapped tightly around his waist.
I started kissing his neck and moved my lips further down his chest, kissing furiously.
“Yeah! Full steam ahead, take this dead girl walking.” I sang, reluctantly pulling away from Connor.
“How’d you find my address?” Connor sang, sitting up slightly.
“Let’s break the bed, rock this dead girl walking!” I sang, throwing my arms up in the air.
“I think we tore my mattress.” Connor sang, glancing towards the ground.
“No sleep tonight for you. Better chug that Mountain Dew.” I sang, getting a good look at Connor. His eyes wide, his cheeks flushed and his hair mused.
“Okay, okay.” He sang quietly, earning a chuckle from Mr Reyes.
“Get your ass in gear. Make this whole town disappear.”
“Okay, okay.” Connor sang, his voice stronger this time.
“Slap me.” Connor stage slapped me at this line, and my cheek tingled at the contact.
“Pull my hair.” Connor tugged my head back by my hair, and tangled his fingers in my hair.
“Touch me there, and there, and there.” My breath hitched as Connor’s hands roamed over my ass and breasts.
“No more talking. Love this dead girl walking.” I sang, hitting the high note with ease. Connor sang his part with ease, and I drank in the sight of him beneath me.
“Love this dead girl! Yeah, yeah, yeah!” We both sang together, our bodies harmonising perfectly.
“Ow!” Connor said, grimacing slightly.
“Yeah!” We both sang, and I was surprised at how well Connor could sing. The music concluded, and we were both panting.
Mr Reyes applauded, and I felt the heat rush to my cheeks. “Very well done, you two! You have excellent chemistry, I must say.” Mr Reyes said, as I awkwardly clambered off Connor.
We picked up our clothes and pulled them back on, smiling as we walked off the stage.
“I’ll see you at Friday’s rehearsal. I can’t stress how good that performance was, especially for a rehearsal.” Mr Reyes said as we left the auditorium.
The doors slammed shut behind us, and the air became thick with awkwardness. “I, uh.” I stammered, my cheeks burning.
“I’ll, um, see you on Friday.” Connor muttered, walking away quickly staring at the ground as he did.
“Opening night, people! I just wanted to congratulate you all on your work over the past couple of months, so, congratulations!” Mr Reyes said, applauding us.
I fidgeted anxiously with my costume, the indigo scarf I was wearing seeming to weigh a ton.
“Hey, Y/N, you ok?” Connor asked, and I turned on my heel to face him. The dark costume of JD suited him perfectly, and I felt seriously attracted to him.
“I’m really nervous. What if I screw up? What if I can’t hit one of the high notes? Ugh.” I said, running a hand through my hair.
“Hey, hey, look at me.” Connor said, placing his hands gently on my shoulders. I looked up at him, noticing the stage makeup that accented his already beautiful features.
“You are going to knock this out of the park. Your voice is absolutely stunning, and I have the utmost faith in you and your abilities.” Connor said, moving his hands from my shoulders to my cheeks.
I felt my cheeks flush, and I noticed Connor’s cheeks were a similar colour. “Thanks.” I muttered, looking right into Connor’s eyes.
He rubbed circles on my cheek with his thumb, and I took in a deep breath. I leaned forward and connected my lips with Connor’s.
His eyes widened briefly, but he closed them quickly, kissing back eagerly. I tangled my hands in Connor’s hair, tugging on it gently.
He let out a groan, and he moved his hands to my waist, pulling me closer to him. Suddenly we heard a cough and pulled apart, turning to see where the cough had come from.
We saw Zoe standing there in full costume, a smirk wide on her face. “God, Veronica, drool much?” She said and I snorted, glancing up at Connor.
“It’s not like I’m throwing my panties at him, Heather.” I said, and I noticed Connor freeze momentarily.
“Oh, but you will be soon enough.” Zoe said, winking at the two of us. She walked off with a perfected strut, and I let out a sigh.
“She’s the worst.” Connor muttered and I chuckled, pressing a soft kiss to his cheek.
“She’s not that bad, Con.” I said, wrapping my arms around his neck.

It’s Halloween today where I am, and I wanted to get more into the spirit by making up some quick headcanons for these characters. Hope you guys like it!
A/N: I know most of the couple costumes include boy/girl (most couple costumes that I looked up are like that. But that doesn’t mean that you dress up in a masculine/feminine way. If I said it’s Donald and Daisy Duck you could easily be Donald in a dress/skirt and vice versa. I feel like al of them would be comfortable with that and wouldn’t question it.
I just wanted to point that out because I know it would mess with me.
After everything that happened she DID NOT want to do something scary.
So instead you decided to celebrate it with the cheesy side of things
You guys had a couple’s costume (Wendy and Peter Pan) and handed out the candy to the trick or treaters
You guys were the cheesy ones that the little kids loved because you found something nice to say about all of their costumes and were really sweet
“Awwww look Y/N it’s a superhero! Lakewood has to be safe now”
In between trick or treaters you guys would be cuddled on the couch watching cutesy Halloween movies
Nightmare before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, Casper, Halloweentown
All the works
You had the volume on high in order to prevent any sounds that might mess with her outside
You guys fell asleep halfway through your list of movies
Maggie came home from work and had found you two adorable
She was really happy that you helped Emma celebrate the holiday even after everything had happened
You think this girl doesn’t want to drag you to a costume party????
She invented costume parties.
And does it really count as dragging her S/O if it’s her party????
No. Not according to Brooke.
She threw a costume party the day before Halloween (kept the list pretty small)
It’s actually pretty tame.
You guys both dress up as the Incredibles
You head over to her house again when it’s actually Halloween
She splurges on the Halloween candy for the kids (each one gets like two handfuls)
Brooke has to keep herself from squealing whenever she sees someone dressed as a princess
She isn’t able to stop herself when she sees an Ariel
“Y/N that was my favorite princess when I was younger!”
Legit tears up when she closes the door
You guys go trick or treating when you run out of candy
You don’t get a lot (because it’s really late), but you guys have tons of fun
Horror. Movie. Marathon.
You guys set out the candy, head over to where he works (grab snacks on the way) and binge on them
You are literally surrounded by blankets on that couch with candy and popcorn surrounding you
Oh… and did I mention… scary movies?
You better have seen these ones beforehand because Noah is gonna talk to you through all of them
“You know there’s actually a conspiracy theory on the internet that this….”
You hear that fifty times
You don’t care because his eyes light up so much when he talks about them
You guys mostly watch supernatural/paranormal ones (avoid serial killers) because… Lakewood….
Jake Fitzgerald ( I l o v e d writing this one)
You guys dress up as a pair of devils
“Jake what’s your costume?”
“… A devil? We talked about it Y/N-”
“You can’t dress up as something you are everyday Jake,”
Cue overdramatic face with a hand on the heart
You guys do really really really innocent pranks as Halloween comes closer
Like you guys seriously think it through on whether or not it crosses ANY lines
You guys play it safe and do things like the shocking ring, whoopee cushion, putting random flavoring in their drinks so they drink their water and spit it out bc now it tastes like cherry????
You guys pranked Noah by making up a really really bad rap and naming it as a Morgue podcast draft on his computer
“Thiiiiisss is Fitzgerald.” “And L/N!”
“And you better not forget to be sppooooookkkkyyy today…”
(Best lines out of the entire thing you dorks)
But you changed the rest of the file’s names so he had to listen to them all in order to figure out which one was the draft he had to edit
(Realizes that wasn’t the only rap)
“Hey Foster you came for our comeback rap!”
“We know we’re just that good!”
You guys try to make those DIY Halloween snacks while listening to Halloween music
End up dancing to the music more than cooking.
You don’t finish any of the recipes
You guys are going trick or treating.
It’s said. And it’s done.
You guys are Jack and Sally from the Nightmare before Christmas
“Oooohhh Audrey can I have that Kit Kat?”
“What? No. Get your own Kit Kat”
You have to trade in order to get the KIt Kat
Audrey definitely takes her video camera out every once in awhile in order to get clips of you while Trick or Treating because she thinks you are adorable
If anything scares you while you guys are out Audrey wraps her arm around your shoulder
Mumbles insults to those people
“Come near us again chainsaw guy I dare you…”
You both go to her house afterwards and dump out your candy on the floor after most of the candy in the blocks around you are done
You guys watch the cheesy Halloween specials on TV
Munching on candy the entire time
You two are gonna get cavities…
Zoe Vaughn (because she’s my babe and why aren’t there more gifs of her)
Took a picture of just the two of you tooOkay but…. I feel like she’s an older sister….
So she WANTED to go hang out with you at your house watching a few movies before heading to a costume party
But her Mom got sick and couldn’t take her little sister and brother out trick or treating (They were the Tweedledee and Tweedledum)
So Zoe called you as she got in her Alice in Wonderland costume (she was not letting it go to waste) to cancel
You told her that you’d go with her. Got dressed in your costume (Mad Hatter) and the two of you went out trick or treating
Zoe actually had a lot of fun
You two would take her brother and sister up to the scary looking houses when they were too scared to go by themselves
You guys got candy
You both stared at each other shocked when it first happened…
… Neither of you thought you would get candy because you were older…
You went with them to every house after that because you were gonna get candy if they offered it
(Some houses gave you guys extra because you were a group costume)
When it started getting later you guys headed to her house
The little ones almost fell asleep as soon as they got home
Zoe made them take a picture that had all four of you because she thought it was adorable
You and Zoe sat in the living room eating your candy and watching the horror movies that were on while you cuddled
