A little bughead fanfiction I whipped up after seeing the deleted
scene. I didn’t proofread it, and it’s 11 o’clock at night, so I don’t
plan to. It’s kinda of a little spec fic for the beginning of season two, with a little dash of canon divergence thrown in. For @littlemermaidlove

“Jughead, Mrs. Cooper and I would like to volunteer to be your guardian. You’d stay at Riverdale High and you’d come live at our house.”
Jughead thinks about The Coopers’ offer a lot as he sits in the waiting room in the hospital, Hal Cooper’s jacket just brushing his arm.
Archie sits across from him, hands, jacket and cast covered in vibrant red blood as he bounces his knee, eager for any sign of the doctors emerging from the operating room. Veronica sits at his side, looking somewhat lost; Jughead’s not sure she really knows what to do. Her mother sits at her side, but makes no move to comfort or help her daughter. Alice’s hand has found her husband’s, just as Betty’s has found Jughead’s.
