As fun as it is, the Heathers musical (as well as the movie it's adapted from) is a black comedy about two teenagers murdering people and staging them to look like suicides. As such, the canons delve into themes of murder and suicide (faked, attempted, and real), but they also bring up self-harm, bullying, peer pressure, mental disorders, slut-shaming, date rape, homophobia, violence, unhealthy relationships, school bombings—yeah, there's kind of a lot, treated in a mostly flippant and darkly humorous fashion.

While Veronica will not be confessing her dark past of accidentally becoming an accomplice to murder, she did have an unhealthy relationship that ended in her ex-boyfriend blowing himself up in the football field after failing to blow up the school, and she did end up in a clique led by someone who bullied people around, and over the course of the show she has hallucinations of the three people she ended up helping to kill (if they are hallucinations, the show is ambiguous). So she's not exactly the healthiest character there is.

If, for the reasons listed above or for any other reason at all, you don't want to tag Veronica, or you do want to tag her but you want me to step lightly around the minefield of her canon, let me know here and we can work something out! Comments are screened, so feel free.
