Oh that’s a good question. To be honest when I first saw Heather report I wasn’t much of a fan of her. It wasn’t that I didn’t like her as a character but I didn’t like her as a person in the universe, doing what she was doing. But I came to realize that I would have done the same in her situation. I guess I related to her.
Which makes me wish that others in the fandom could relate to her.
I feel that her character was pretty good, and she had some good development through the two episodes and she wasn’t the typical kind of viking, which lent some uniqueness to her.
I think the reason a lot of people hated Heather was because she threw a spanner in the works of Hicstrid shipping. Either because of her manipulation of Hiccups feelings
or her and Astrid clear chemistry.
These days I think shes a forgotten character, not many people remember or care for her anymore. I wish I could explain to people why she’s such an awesome character but peoples opinions are what they are and I’m cool with that. So long as no one directly sends me hate on her it doesn’t bother me what they think.
Wow I had a lot more to say about that then I thought I would.
