'Heathers' Headcanons

Chapter Text

Height:

Heather Chandler-

Heather Chandler is the second tallest of the group, standing at around 5 feet 8 inches (173 cm). This allows her to defend herself pretty well and tower over quivering students as she destroys them. It’s terrifying.

Strangely, Veronica flushes deep red and bites her lip whenever this happens, but then pulls Heather aside to lecture her on the importance of ‘being nice’ and ‘to stop making everyone think you’re the devil’. Heather’s not sure how she feels about this, but tries to better herself for Veronica.

She’s even taller and deadlier when she’s wearing her vibrant red 5 inch heels. They make pretty good dick kickers. Kurt and Ram avoid her whenever she has her heels on, which is almost everyday.

Heather loves to flaunt her height during casual days out but is annoyed when Veronica shows up to crush her pride (she’s not even that shorter than her).

It’s a great feeling when puts on her heels and boasts about how she’s taller than Veronica (ha). Duke and McNamara shake their heads, but Veronica finds it cute.

It’s another great feeling when she kicks Veronica in the the thighs for calling her ‘cute’. She finds it absolutely insulting. Yep, totally does not make her heart flutter. Duke never mentions Heather’s tomato-red face, for fear of a kick to the thighs as well.

Heather Duke-

Heather Duke is pretty average, standing at around 5 feet 4 inches (163 cm), making her the second shortest of the group. But what she loses in height, she makes up for attitude.

Her language is basically snark and sarcasm, destroying egos left and right. It’s pretty great to see students scurry away from her after a brutal beat down. Even Chandler can’t match her sass.

Heather doesn’t like to wear heels. They give her bad memories of that one incident (she hasn’t told Veronica about it). She tries not to think about it, but if she has to wear them (mainly due to Chandler bugging her non-stop), it’s usually a pair of 3 inch dark green heels.

She often needs help getting stuff from very high places. Because of this, Heather cherishes the moments when she retrieves stuff for McNamara instead. It’s definitely because she likes to be reminded that she’s taller than McNamara. Not because McNamara gives her the cutest smile ever when she does it. Pffft, as if.

Her height makes both her and McNamara targets for Kurt and Ram, but she is able to keep them talking and slip them out of the situation.

If that doesn’t work, their emergency plan is for McNamara to get ready to punch them until either Veronica or Chandler (or both) come to rescue them. Thankfully, they have never needed to use Plan B, though Heather certainly isn’t gonna complain if she’s able to see McNamara’s muscles in action.

Heather McNamara-

Heather McNamara is the shortest of the group, and she’s very sensitive about it. She stands at 5 feet 2 inches (158 cm), and doesn’t take nicely to teasing. She makes up for her height with her strength (Duke’s pretty sure she has abs, not that she’s been looking). Probably because of all of that cheerleading and after school sports she does.

It remains a mystery on how she’s able to fit everything in on her timetable. Everyone wonders how one tiny bean of a person could be so active. Frankly, Chandler is baffled how Heather even enjoys sport in the first place.

Veronica actively avoids making jokes about Heather’s height after she was send to the nurse’s office with a black eye (she deserved it). Despite this, Chandler gets away with making short jokes and Veronica sometimes uses Heather’s head as an arm rest. It’s annoying, but endearing.

Ram and Kurt target her because of her height, along with Duke, but Duke’s witty comebacks usually save them from anymore trouble. Heather appreciates Duke’s efforts to protect her. She finds it hot.

Heather often tries to retrieve stuff on high shelves by herself, which usually ends in tears and hot chocolate. Veronica or Chandler end up getting it for her, to which Heather puts down her mug and insists she ‘could have done it herself’.

However, when Duke helps her, she smiles and blushes instead. This has sparked many a venting conversations between Veronica and Chandler over Heather’s stubborn nature (and obvious crush). It’s great bonding time for the two of them.

Veronica-

Veronica Sawyer is the tallest out of all of them, and takes great pride in this fact. She stands at a whopping 6 feet (183 cm) tall. It’s partly why Kurt and Ram avoid her daily, though she’s never really done anything to them to warrant this fear.

It’s even more confusing when she realises they are slightly taller than her anyway. Still, she’s not complaining. More protection means less distraction when it comes to writing in her diary and reading a good book on the school steps.

Duke and McNamara get pestered daily by Kurt and Ram, but they are quickly stopped when Veronica shows up with her famous glare and Chandler with her killer heels. To Chandler’s great relief (I wonder why), Veronica finds heels uncomfortable and impractical, and never wears them.

She prefers flats, a choice Duke aggressively agrees with. It’s one of only few things Veronica and Duke can agree on (Veronica’s not sure why, probably something to do with the incident. She’s scared to ask).

Being the tallest also has it’s downfalls. Veronica envies Duke and McNamara whenever they borrow clothes from her or Chandler. She also unknowingly blocks everyone’s view at the movie theatre and can never fit in anyone’s bed during sleepovers, so she has to sleep on the floor.

She’s a blushing mess whenever Chandler voluntarily joins her on the floor, but quickly covers it up. Chandler always pretends not to notice when the lights are on. It’s become a routine and Veronica’s sure Chandler is just doing it to embarrass her, but she’s absolutely fine with that.
