evening mantle

General Inuyasha, inspired by @gypsin fic. I imagined Kagome’s country being very Western in style and culture, whereas Inuyasha’s country is very Eastern. Btw, this is him in ‘fancy pants’ armor.

idk why this happened, or when but for some reason I suddenly ship Veronica and Reggie….

I mean, he used to pine after her in the comics I guess so it’s not out of the blue…

Even though I’m convinced Veronica likes girls, most likely bi rather than gay though but idk…

It’s probably the picture from Coachella of Camila and Ross hugging but like…

Veggie????????????????????

The Party Part 3 (Reggie x Reader)

Part 1  Part 2

A/N: The long awaited part three. Sorry it took so long to put up.

 “Here put this on your jaw” You told Reggie as you handed him a bag of frozen peas from your freezer. There was a nasty purple bruise starting to form from where Archie had hit him hours before. That wasn’t all as his eye was starting to swell shut also.

“Are you serious?” Reggie asked bewildered.

“You’re a football player, are you telling me that you never had to put something frozen on you before?” You huffed. Reggie shook his head and grumbled something under his breath and placed the peas on his jaw but not for long as he hissed the minute it touched.

“Reg, I know it’s hurts but if you want the swelling to go down you’ll handle the pain”

“Whatever” He placed it back on his jaw and laid back on his bed, closing his eyes or his eye to forget the pain.

“What happened anyway?” You asked after a moment of silence,  fingers running through his hair.

“A fight”

“I know that smart one but why? How did you guys start fighting in the first place? Was it about me?”

“Obviously babe, no offensive. I umm..  I was the one who started it”

“You what?” You asked shocked, you knew Reggie was a shit starter but you didn’t think he would of done it with your brother knowing what had went down.

“I’m sorry you know but I couldn’t let it go on any longer. I can’t stand to see you so upset and this fight between you guys was killing you. You can’t tell me it wasn’t because I know it was.” You let out a breath you didn’t know that you were holding. He had done it for you but it didn’t make it any better. “I knew how to push Archies buttons so I did. Don’t punish him for this, just me” You shook your head at Reggie and let a smile come across your face.

“I’m not happy about this but honestly what did you say?” Reggie sighed before he answered

“The boys were talking crap. I didn’t understand at the time but Jughead did so when he teased me I got pissed. Archie could tell and try to stop but I led them on, saying things about how good  you’re in bed. I knew he would fight me then. Who would want someone talking about their sister that way.”

“You’re idiot sometimes you know that right?”

“Yeah the pain proves it”

“It’s the thought that counts babe so thank you for that. No matter what you said about me I still love you”

“I love you too but you really need to talk to Andrews. I’ll be fine so go on” Reggie said trying to push you off the bed.

“Are you sure?” You asked getting to your feet, and fixing your wrinkled dress.

“Yes go” You gave Reggie a kiss on his cheek before you headed out on your walk back home. This would give you some time to think everything over in your head before you met with reality.

—–

 “I’m home” You shouted as you walked into your house. It’s been days since you been here and it felt nice.

“About time” You looked up to see where the sound came from and saw Archie standing in the kitchen, icing his hand.

“You got a mean punch” You said jokily trying to break this uncomfortable mood.

“Serious? You’re going to make jokes” Archie just shook his head and try to push his way out of the kitchen but you blocked the way.

“I just want you to lighten up”

“Me really? Nice going sis” He passed you and headed for the stairs.

“Please I just want to talk” Archie turned to face you again, his face was clearly showing anger.

“What could you possibly have to say to me? That you hooked up with the one person I can’t stand or is it that YOU LOVE HIM? Please if you want to talk just do it already because we both know you’re mad at me.”

“Seems like it’s just you mad at me” You let out and Archie just rolled his eyes, not really knowing what to do. “I’m not mad at you. I know why you guys were fighting”

“Reggie?” You nodded.

“He told me he started it because he couldn’t stand to see us fight anymore. I’m sorry Arch I really am. I never meant for any of this to happened. It was supposed to be a one time thing that came from too much alcohol but it turned more” It was true Reggie and you had hooked up at Cheryl party over the summer and from there it turned into love. Hook ups at parties turned into late nights at Pop’s and sitting down by the river telling each others, your guys hopes and dreams. It was never suppose to be anything more but you found something you didn’t want to let go of.

“I love him Arch and nothing is going to change that. Not you, not dad, not anyone. I’m not going to wish for anyone else because he’s all I need and I’m not sorry for that.” Archie stare at you but not with wide eyes just his normal look. He was speechless from everything you had said. The look in your eyes as you talked about Reggie made him feel sorrow and guilt from all of the events that had happened lately. He didn’t like it but at the end of the day he wanted his sister by his side even if it meant dealing with the one person he couldn’t stand.

“Forgive me?”  You begged with tears forming in your eyes from your anxiety.

“Only if you forgive me” Archie said with a smile on his face and he held out his hand that wasn’t injury. You took it and hugged him tightly.

“Were even then”

“We are”

“So ummm Pizza?”  You asked

“If you’re paying” You were already in the kitchen getting the phone when Archie spoke up

“Maybe you could invited Reggie?” He said with a shugg.

“Probably wouldn’t be able to see to get here.” Archie laughed at your respond

“Yeah I guess I hit him a little too hard”

“Just a little” You knew then that everything was going to be okay in the Andrews household even when Mantle came around.

so reggie has definitely called up jughead once or twice for a smoke session and jughead only agreed both times bc reggie said he’d pay @ pop’s and both instances definitely where hours longer than needed but jughead really needed to finish that documentary and a reggie with his walls down wasn’t a bad guy at all

anonymous asked:

Hi! Could you please write a fic in which Reggie and his jock friends harass Betty for dating the "weird kid"? Thank you in advance!

I love doing these!
**


“Elizabeth Cooper, my very favorite blonde.”

Betty cringed at the familiar voice of Reggie Mantle, she looked over to the boy next to her currently holding her hand and carrying her backpack on his shoulder, she knew her boyfriend hated Reggie, and while she saw the way he treated Jughead, Reggie had never done anything to her and she wasn’t raised to be rude (contrary to her incredibly awful mother, Betty Cooper had class.)

So she turned around, moving Jughead with her, as he set his jaw and put on his positively bored expression.

“What’s up Reggie?” She asked politely, squeezing Jugheads hand.

Sure enough, half the football team staggered almost single file behind their captain.

“Nothing much, sweet stuff. How about joining us for some late night tailgating before the big game tonight? I mean you are a vixen now.” He eyed her tiny skirt, his eyes lingering on her legs.

She heard Jughead growl softly from beside her, trying to halt any obnoxious fight that she was sure would happen if this went any further, she shook her head, moving closer to Jughead

“Sorry Reg, me and my boyfriend always spend the few hours before the game together, maybe another time.” She turned around and started walking away when Reggie opened his big mouth one more time.

“Come on Betty, you can’t be serious, you got hot as hell this summer, you don’t have to pretend to be interested in the loner anymore. You can have anyone on the football team, even Mantle the Magnificent. Save the weird kid for.. the other weird kids.” He finished off cockily, high fiving Moose and laughing with the boys.

Jughead instantly felt Betty stiffen and he knew what ever was about to happen, was not gonna be good.

“Bets.. it’s okay, it doesn’t matter, just…”

She whipped around so fast her perfectly in tact ponytail smacked him square in the face.

“Really Reggie? The weird kid? You really think you’re one to talk?” She snorted wickedly, as the boys in front of her watched her wide eyed, almost flinching at the venom coming out of her mouth “you’re the fakest boy in this high school, you hated football, remember that? You used to say "I don’t ever wanna go near that stupid ball, it’s made out of pigskin did you know that?” You wanted to be a veterinarian, you were a vegetarian. You got kicked out of elementary school for smuggling squirrels inside from recess.“

Jughead bit the inside of his cheek, trying desperately not to laugh. Betty meant business and she was not playing around.
While Jughead held in his laughter, the rest of the team was practically crying in hysterics.
But she wasn’t finished

"And you! Moose.” The bulky boy immediately cut off his laugher “you didn’t know how to spell "dinner” until you were 13. So I don’t want to see you laughing at anything this airhead says.“

The muscular boy, nodded quickly ducking His head "yes mam.”

She turned almost too slowly to Reggie again, he was still recovering from her digs

“So before you think of calling my boyfriend "the weird kid” again, you might wanna think back to who helped you hide three stray kittens in his garage when your mom wouldn’t let you keep them. Jughead is the best damn boy in this high school and it would do all of you good to remember that.“ She turned on her heel, connecting hands with jughead again and pulling him along.

He couldn’t wipe the grin off of his face as Betty pulled him into the blue and gold office in a huff
"Ridiculous, the way social hierarchies are established so early on in developmental…”

Jughead cut off her rambling by placing a deep, dizzy kiss to her lips.

She pulled back smiling, her eyes foggy and a goofy grin on her face that matched his

“What was that for?” She giggled

He smiled, pressing another kiss to her forehead
“Just for being you, Betty Cooper.”

a friend talked to me about issues among asians and they mentioned internalized emotions & constantly feeling not good enough…

not only that’s true but that also made me think of our king Reggie Mantle….. imagine all the feelings he had bottled up? imagine him being so self absorbed is a coping mechanism for not feeling good enough for his parents? is his dad giving him enough Validation™? does his mom love him enough?

I just want my boy to be happy and these thoughts are keeping me up rn ://

a/n: part two of twin andrews is here!! if you love it and want more make sure to send me a request for a part three!! love u nugs🌹

“wow V” i chuckle as we walk out of the gym “i can’t believe you got Betty onto the squad” we all laugh and Betty smiles admiringly to her friend.

“it’s about time we had a cooper on the squad” i chuckle looping my arm in the blondes “thank you both- this has been a dream since like forever-” she swoons grabbing her heart.

“you wish is our demand” Veronica tells her friend as we bow jokingly in front of her we all laugh holding a new uniforms in our hands “should we try them out for size?” i nod eager to get into something that was familiar.

we pile into the girls change room and put on our uniforms “im a vixen!!” Betty squeals jumping up at down and swishing her mini skirt.

“B can you zip me up?” i pull my red hair aside as she zips me up

“wow (y/n/n) looking hot!” Veronica exclaims fanning herself cause me to stick my tongue out at her “why thank you miss V”

we walk out of the changing rooms head held high, it started to finally feel like i was finally getting back into my old life, the one i left a year ago for with my mum. I find myself smiling at my friends glad that i came back, i needed them and I didn’t know that till this very moment.

“have you spoken to Archie?” i was snapped out of my thoughts

“spoken to him about what?” i ask stopping at my locker to grab a few books “Betty didn’t tell you?” i shrug feeling someone’s eyes on me “tell me what?” i press.

“she doesn’t need to know-” Betty stumbled with her words, i furrow my eyebrow hitting myself in the head with my chemistry book “if this is about B having a crush on him then yes i know” i roll my eyes.

walking backwards i giggle at Betty’s blushed cheeks, ronnie joins in on the giggle nudging the blonde with her elbow “approve?” she questions and i nod winking st the girls

“look i gotta go- Pop’s after school to celebrate? we have our very first Cooper and Lodge girl that means milkshakes and burgers on me” i ask glancing at the clock it was the last lesson and I was craving one of pops famous burgers

“sounds like a good idea!” Betty smiles at me “good see ya’s later”

i turn on my heels and collide with another body sending me to a heap on the floor, i land on the victims chest and we bop heads “fuck!” i cuss rubbing my head.

i didn’t get a chance to see his face before i tried to stand instantly going dizzy, hands dart to my waist keeping me steady.

“woah easy there Andrews” i instantly recognised the voice “Jughead?” i exclaim glances at his face taking in all his features and that old beanie of his “oh my god” i throw my arms around him as he circle my waist.

“i wow you look-” i step back glancing at him “you look good juggie” i hug him once more and he freezes before hugging me back. “still not a hugger?” i ask and he shakes his head.

“no but you’ve always seemed to be the exception” i laugh “id love to stay and talk but i have chem-” he smiles “me too, walk together?” i nod following the boy

“so how come you weren’t at Pop’s last night for my big return, i knew something was missing but Archie didn’t mention anything” he goes quite so i figure I’ve hit a nerve.

“how are things?” i ask changing the subject “yeah okay” his voice sounds strained “are you sure?” i press “im here aren’t i?” i bite my lip and walk next to him in silence earning a few glances from peers, a river vixen walking with an ‘outcast’.

“this is us” he point to the class i follow him in just as the second bell rang others scrambling into their seats as Mr Hill slips in behind us “seats everybody” i gulp glances around desperately for a seat i forget we’d be in pairs.

all eyes are on me and within seconds the class is buzzing in soft whispers “Andrews” i hear jughead call sitting a few desks back, he gestures to the open seat next to him and gladly slip into it “thanks jones”.

he nods glancing to the front of the class “welcome back miss andrews” Mr Hill greets me “good to be back” i clear my throat awkwardly the eyes of my classmates piercing into me.

“so the hotter Andrews is finally back” i turn in my seat to see Reggie smirking in his seat running his hands through his hair “Reggie Mantle, god even Chicago couldn’t erase your idiot voice from my brain” i smile sweetly batting my eyelashes before facing forward rolling my eyes.

jughead laughs at my comment and i smile at him “baby you couldn’t forget me if you tried” i shake my head facing forward “oh but baby It’s not your devilish good looks that made you memorable it was more what you were lacking in you know where”

the class erupts in laughter and i smirk at my victory “ive always liked you feisty my little river vixen” he purs.

“enough” our teacher yells standing and scribbling notes on the board “good to be back” i mumble catching Reggies sleazy glances in the car of my eye “gross”

i mumble copying the notes “you okay?” jughead whispers “yeah just sleaze ball taking a little bit of a long look” i gesture to Reggie with my pencil and Jughead narrows his eyes at the boy.

“yeah he definitely hasn’t changed since you left” i laugh trying to hold in my giggles and people’s eyes start to stray from the board to me.

“hey juggie” he murmurs glancing to the board then back to his book “Betty & Veronica wanted to go to Pop’s after school to celebrate them making the team- do you maybe wanna come?”

he puts down his pencil facing me “andrews are you asking me out?” i jolt up shaking my head furiously

“no i um no i was just-” i give up when i realise im no longer speaking English “what i meant to say is that no the whole gangs going to be there and i want to hear more about what’s happening around here- Betty told me you’ve been writing about Jason”

he turns to the front nodding “ill be there, we can talk about Jason another time when it’s just the two of us” i nod returning to my work.

“why aren’t we celebrating you becoming a vixen?” i roll my eyes “ive been on the squad since freshman year juggie it’s not that big of a deal” i tease clicking my pen.

“noted” he replies focusing his full attention to the white board.

//

“(y/n)!”

i turn to see my brother jogging over to me looking slightly puffed “you good?” i ask continuing to walk my brother following hot on my heels, i was eager to get out of this damn school and to Pop’s.

“are you going to the dance tonight?” i knit my brows “what dance?” i question approaching my locker to grab a few books slipping them into my bag.

“the school dance- its tonight- Betty asked if I’d go with her and Ronnie” i close my locker “she what?” i say surprised.

“i- i dunno she just asked if I’d go with them and i said yes which means you have to okay!” i grown “arch i don’t want to go to a stupid school dance” he grabs me by the shoulders pulling me toward him “please!” he begs.

i remove his hands from his shoulders and start the walk to his car, “please please please please please” i block him out taking long strides to reach Archie’s truck.

“open the damn truck arch” he shakes his head “Archie! Open the damn truck” i yell frustration consuming me at how annoying my brother was being “i swear to god Archibald is you do not open this door i will kill you!” i hiss and he shakes his head.

“ill open the door if you come to the dance” i groan resting my head against the door “fine fine! ill go” i say in defeat earning a happy yell from my brother followed by the beeps of the car being unlocked “hallelujah” i mumble getting into the car.

“Betty and Veronica are going to the mall to buy a dress so ill drop you off and you can pick out something nice okay” he teases smiling stupidly at you “why don’t we both ditch and order in watch a movie something actually enjoyable” i offer clasping my hands together to beg.

“no, i can’t let them go by themselves” i smack his arm “um why the bloody hell not? we can take care of ourselves yanno” i tell him irritation itching at me.

“oh well it’s your first social event back- you need this” i ignore him glancing out the window as he pulls into the parking lot of the mall “bye sissy” he teases. i slam his truck door and flip him off as he drives away.

“jerk” i mumble

“you made it!” i walk toward the blonde and the raven headed girls “i made it” i smile at them as they loop their arms in mine “let’s get you a killer dress” i tell Betty as we walk into the complex and she blushes

“archie tell you?” i nod “when were you going to tell me you asked my brother out?!” i exclaim bumping her shoulder “i didn’t ask him out i asked him to the dance with V it’s not like it’s a date”

“whatever you say coops” i wink at her and run my fingers across the nearest dress rack “wish i had someone to go to the dance with” i think aloud flicking through the hangers.

“what about Jughead? Yous seemed pretty cozy in the hall” Betty speaks up curiosity filling her voice “oh my god!” i exclaim cursing.

the mention of his name reminds me that we were supposed to be meeting at Pops now “shit shit shit” i smack my forehead trying not to think about how hurt he’s going to be when he shows up and none of us being there

“what’s wrong?” Ronnie asks concerned her arms full of dresses “i invited Jughead to Pops tonight and i totally spaced” i tell them guilty “im sure he’ll understand” Betty tries to comfort me placing a hand on my shoulder.

“i hope so” i sulk “do you know what happened with him and my brother?” she shakes her head “they haven’t really spoken since before summer break i don’t think they spoke for the whole summer” i gulp, great what the hell happened.

the rest of the shopping trip i spent too engulfed in my own thoughts and theories about my brother and his former bestfriend that i barely noticed buying a dress and getting to Betty’s house.

“earth to (y/n)” im snapped out of my thoughts by Ronnie, she waves the curling wand in front of my face “you almost ready Arch will be here soon” i nod finishing off my hair and grabbing my dress “ill just change and ill be down before you know it”

“okay we’ll be outside”

i nod closing the door and quickly changing into my dress sliding on my heels and applying another coat of lipstick before glancing at myself in the mirror. i didn’t look half bad i smile at my reflection before the tooting of a horn brings me back to earth

“really archie? i was coming jesus” i complain opening the front door of Betty’s house and walking down the driveway to meet my brother the girls already tucked into the car

“wow little sis you look decent when you put in effort”

i gasp shoving him in the chest “your 10 minutes older than me okay-”

he rolls his eyes at me and mockingly opens the door for me, i smile sarcastically at him and slip in the passenger seat “the quicker we get there the quicker we can get home” i think aloud

“c'mon it can’t be that bad” Veronica teased but i just shook my head “you have no idea”

a/n: sorry for it being long and kinda poopy im in the midst of starting a new part it’s just with the ending i wanted for this is would’ve taken SO LONG! but be excited for part three because their will be lots of jughead x reader fluff! so if you’d like that PLEASE (im low key begging you) to just type a ‘part 3’ or ‘i really like this series or just SOMETHING. silent readers get me down!

TAG LIST AS PROMISED: @smadrat @natalieroseg @isak-lo @lena-light

4
The Mac Tirs + Ferelden
The name "Mac Tir" means "son of the land."
It was bestowed upon Loghain by King Maric after the Battle
of River Dane.
The Fereldan people considered the name highly appropriate:
to them, Teyrn Loghain was a son of the entire nation,
and he was famously said to have told a crowd
that Ferelden would forever be "part of his blood"

J.R.R. Tolkien, describing Luthien Tinuviel (Silmarillion, “Of Beren and Luthien”):

“…her eyes were grey as the starlit evening; her mantle was sewn with golden flowers, but her hair was dark as the shadows of twilight…and in her face was a shining light.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, describing Elrond (FoTR, “Many Meetings”):

“His hair was dark as the shadows of twilight, and upon it was set a circlet of silver; his eyes were grey as a clear evening, and in them was a light like the light of stars.”

J.R.R. Tolkien, describing Arwen (FoTR, “Many Meetings”):

“… there sat a lady fair to look upon, so like was she in form of womanhood to Elrond that Frodo guessed that she was one of his close kindred. Young she was and yet not so. The braids of her dark hair were touched by no  frost; her white arms and clear face were flawless and smooth, and the light of stars was in her bright eyes, grey as a cloudless night.”

Now I’m not saying Elrond looks exactly like a male version of the two most beautiful women in the history of Middle Earth except wait yes that’s exactly what I’m saying

and also why do fanartists never portray this in all its imaginative glory I thought you guys were all about reveling in Tolkien’s glorious excuse to draw male elves who are so pretty it hurts, why not the most canon one?

Freaking out about a very important job interview, so I decided to write some bughead to calm myself. I accidentally deleted this prompt, but thankfully had a screencap! I promise I’m getting to your prompts, and I love receiving your prompts because they keep me writing and calm! All of you are lovely!

Jughead Jones leaned against the lockers outside of the girls locker room, waiting for his girlfriend, Betty Cooper, to get out of cheerleading practice. He slid his thumb across the pages of his well loved copy of To Kill a Mockingbird and shook the single dark curl that slid out of his beanie from its spot dangling in front of his blue eyes. He didn’t even see them coming.

Reggie Mantle, Moose Mason, Chuck Clayton, and their gang of thugs circled around Jughead as though they were vultures. Reggie grabbed the book and tossed it over his shoulder.

“What are you doing, Donnie Darko?” Reggie sneered, getting a little too close for Jughead’s comfort. Jughead straightened, taking his body away from the lockers, his head swinging around, eyes wild looking for an escape, like a caged animal.

“You see, Beetlejuice,” Chuck spat “I’m really not a fan of getting punched, at all, let alone by losers like you. So I’m looking for a little payback from you and your crazy girl.”

Jughead’s jaw clenched as his face soured. He wanted so badly to defend Betty, but he knew from his years near the Serpents that he would be doing more harm than good, outnumbered and unarmed as he was. As the boys closed in, Jughead felt more frantic, though he was careful not to show it. Guys like that feed on fear.

Before they could start hitting him, Jughead’s saving grace came in the form of a tiny blonde in a cheerleading uniform. Betty Cooper picked up his book and stormed her way into the throng of boys surrounding her boyfriend, honey blonde ponytail swaying wildly with her determined gait. Betty grabbed Jughead’s hand, trying to pull him through the crowd.

“Whoa whoa whoa Blondie.” Chuck grabbed Betty’s shoulder “Where do you think you’re going?”

“Away from you.” She spat, tugging on Jughead’s hand. Reggie shoved Jughead backwards, slamming his back harshly into the lockers, at the sight of the pain on Jughead’s face, Betty decided it was time to break it out. Full dark no stars.

 Betty stood up as tall as she could and stepped forward until she was chest to chest with Chuck.

“If you don’t let us leave right now, I won’t be so generous as I was last time to not boil you like the pitiful crustacean that you are. Do I make myself clear, Clayton?” The clinical precision of her words and the icy hollowness in her eyes, brooked no contest, it was a look that Jughead had never seen and never wanted to see again. When Betty had told him, sitting in Pop’s late the night of his birthday, that she had a darkness, this was not what he expected. The soft gentle Betty was gone, replaced by someone colder, darker, empty.

Betty grabbed his hand, pulling him towards the doors, leaving the footballers in shock behind them.

                                                                               *********

They skipped the rest of the day. They had made no plans with Alice Cooper to work on the Blue and Gold today, and since she was out of town at a divorce support group that Betty had convinced her to attend, so what she didn’t know wouldn’t kill her.

The two walked in silence to the Cooper house, still hand in hand. The streets of Riverdale were just as silent, the normal chatter of the small town had died with Jason Blossom, so the only sounds were the two pairs of feet tapping on the light gray pavement with each step.  

When they arrived, they both lay entangled on Betty’s soft bed in her pastel pink room in silence for several moments, Betty fidgeting with the buttons on his open flannel. He could see dried blood coating her palms, before she lifted her head from his chest and spoke;

“I told you that I wasn’t perfect. I wish you had never seen that side to me. It’s scary and I feel like I can’t control it.”

Jughead tilted his face to look her in the eyes, her green eyes were no longer hollow, instead filled with worry, and their characteristic warmth.

“Bets, I love you, and I’m here for you. You’re scared, but you’re strong. And I’ll be here if you need help.” With that, Jughead lifted her hands and kissed her scarred palms. No matter what happened they’d always be a team.

They’d always bring each other into the light
