Heathers: Heather Duke

Last year when I did this project, I stuck to just one character from each movie. This year when I was in the brainstorming phase of the project, for some movies I couldn’t decide on just one character. As such, there are a few films where you will see multiple characters.

If I had to choose a favorite Heather from this film, it would definitely be Heather Duke. While her character’s trajectory is fairly predictable in hindsight, Shannon Doherty’s portrayal of her is wonderful.

Prop 2: A green book. I think I grabbed this copy of Pride and Prejudice off my bookshelf to stand in for Moby Dick (which appears to be a literary classic I do not own even though I have previously read it.)

I love to play croquet with my friends, but they always make me green when I want to be red.

When the leader of our friend group (Heather Chandler) dies, I talk to God as I kneel at her casket.
“I prayed for the death of Heather Chandler many times and I felt bad every time I did it but I kept doing it anyway. Now I know you understood everything. Praise Jesus, Hallelujah.”

At school, things start going great for me. I get my bulimia in check and start wearing red like I always wanted.

A person dressed up as Heather Duke from the movie Heathers edited into a scene with Veronica and JD.
JD lends me a copy of Moby Dick. I underline some things including the word Eskimo. Veronica & JD are acting weird, but I assume it is just because I’m more popular than they are.

I use my newfound popularity to get everyone to sign a petition. Veronica thinks I’m being a mega-bitch, but she’s just pulling my dick.
