|“||Peter Gordon walked by with Marcia Fadden. They were supposed to be going together, but Richie figured it was just they lived next door to each other on West Broadway and were such a couple of assholes that they needed each other’s support and attention.||„|
|~ Text from the novel It.|
Marcia Fadden is a minor antagonist in Stephen King's IT. She is a very rich girl who lives in Derry, Maine and is the girlfriend and lover of Peter Gordon, who protects her and makes her feel good about herself. In turn, she also compliments him.
Summer of 1958
They are in a relationship, and on a date, Peter insults Beverly Marsh, and Marcia joins in the insult and suggests that Beverly make out with Richie.
Beverly tells Marcia to "piss off", and Marcia recoils in shock and terror and puts a hand to her chest. Peter protects her by slipping his arm round her shoulders and threatens to beat up Richie. Marcia is led off, protected, by Peter into the town movie theater, and Beverly insults her behind her back.
After the movie theater incident, Marcia tells Peter to get revenge on the Losers Club for her. Peter, a member of the Bowers Gang, takes part in Henry Bowers's chase of Mike Hanlon, which winds up in the resulting rock fight between the Bowers Gang and Losers Club, and Peter is the first on Henry's side to forfeit.
Marcia Fadden is presumed deceased by the end of It, as it is mentioned that Pennywise killed all of Henry's friends.
Marcia Fadden was an egomaniac; she acted smug and arrogant towards those less privileged than herself. Provocative and spoiled, she was a bully towards almost anyone who she saw as beneath her, especially Beverly Marsh, yet her bullying style was slightly similar to that of her boyfriend and lover, Peter Gordon, as she was never quite brave enough to try anything on her own and preferred doing so in the company of Peter or other friends such as Greta Bowie and Sally Mueller. However, she was much more of a coward at heart and only went as far as teasing and insulting others, contrary to Peter's cooperation in physical bullying when with Henry Bowers and the others.
Her whole relationship with Peter is described in the text as two horrible people needing each other.
- Although Marcia is an extremely minor character, she does help to provoke Henry and his gang to hunt down the Losers Club.
- Because of her relationship with Peter, Marcia is likely considered to be one of Henry's gang.
