[Y/N] = your first name [Y/L/N] = your last name
Being a Riverdale Vixen habitually put you at the top of the Riverdale High School social scheme. But for you, it just meant that you could let loose as you cheered on your football star boyfriend, Archie Andrews. You and Archie had been together for over a year, and you loved being a River Vixen. Cheerleading had always been up your alley. You had a fiery, sassy attitude, which earned you the nickname that Archie gave you: firecracker. Only Archie ever called you that, and you thought he was beyond sweet for giving it to you.
“Y/N!” the harmonious voice of Cheryl Blossom, the senior captain of the River Vixens, acknowledged you as you stood at your locker. You glanced over at her, seeing the beautiful redhead smiling an authentic smile at you. A lot of people thought that Cheryl Blossom was cold-hearted and malicious, but you had known her since your Freshman year at Riverdale, and you had always gotten along well with her.
“Hey Cheryl,” you greeted, closing your locker and leaning against it with a beam. “What’s up?”
“Don’t forget that we have a mandatory River Vixens practice after school before the game tonight,” Cheryl reminded you as you both began strolling in the direction of the student lounge. “I mean, I didn’t think that you would, but better safe than sorry.” She inserted and you nodded your head.
“Of course, captain,” you laughed, teasing her. “I’ll make sure B and V get there too,” you assured Cheryl before parting ways as you entered the student lounge. Betty, Veronica and Kevin were all sat together on the sofa chairs, chatting amongst themselves as Kevin finished his homework at the last minute. “Good morning Vixens,” you saluted them, taking a seat next to Betty with a grin. “Cheryl just reminded me that we have practice after school before the game tonight, so be there.” You added, and Betty and Veronica both expressed their anticipation for the game that evening.
Two hands covered your eyes, and you heard Betty and Veronica giggling quietly to themselves. “Jughead, I already told you, not at school,” you joked, knowing that it was Archie as you covered his hands with yours and pulled them away from your face. You turned and laughed, seeing Archie smiling at you, dressed in his varsity jacket, as per usual. Jughead stood behind him with a smirk.
“Oh Y/N, you’ve revealed our affair.” He joked, nudging you with his elbow as he passed before taking a seat next to Veronica. “However will I satisfy my need for pep now?” Jughead added – making fun of your status as a cheerleader, and the slogan of your hometown – and you got up to greet Archie with a kiss.
“You ever play football? Yeah, I didn’t think so… Anyway, the best feeling I ever got from being on the field wasn’t when I made a great play or we won some game. It was when one of my team-mates took a tackle for me, and I knew they were gonna make sure I was safe. And nobody got to me. Watching all of you rush back to the ship, even those two knuckle-heads, to take on Chronos, made me feel the same way. I like being part of a team, man.”
(We’re playing a homebrew campaign where our party is on a quest to find the Necropolis, where all the dead go, to bring back the King’s daughter’s soul. Our party managed to win a difficult fight against a golem-like creature, which gives us the right to ask it one question. At the moment, my warrior is uncounscious and halfway through a wall because of said fight.)
Rogue (OOC): I ask him what football is.
Cleric (OOC): What? Why?
Rogue (OOC): I heard about it in the last city and I need to know!
Cleris (OOC): But you already know! You actually play football!
Rogue (OOC): My character doesn’t know.
DM: That’s very much not what you’re here for but it’s too late to change your question, now. The golem looks at you, and it does not have feelings but you know that if it could feel, it would be very disappointed in you. It says, “You take foot. You take ball. You hit ball with foot. Football.”
Rogue: Yeah alright, seems legit.
Cleric: Can we ask another question?
DM: Well, if you beat it again, sure.
(We ended up taking the quick way to the Necropolis.)
- Anyone else notice how Light is like doing middle school homework in high school? No really, I was doing logarithms in my sophomore year. Sure, I was in honors classes, but come on?
- Light Yagami had a super sense towards the law. He would not be doing other kid’s homework for money. Sorry, but you already screwed up this character with the opening fucking scene.
-Like I am trying. I really am.
-Why does this movie have this 70s high school feel…in 2017? No really, who the fuck cares about cheerleaders and jocks anymore in school? The cool kids now are the fucking prepsters who get good grades and shit or the mopey losers on instagram.
–Oh please tell me that this hot topic heffa is not supposed to be Misa?
-Misa Amane was gothic. Not emo. Fuck….
- Also Misa was a fucking super model. She is not some ordinary white girl. She is headturningly beautiful. I am not taking away from the actress because she is attractive in that ordinary white girl across the street type of way, but no.
-Oh god, I hate the music. This is what DmC did to Devil May Cry. This is so bad. Like Death Note had ominous chanting to death metal. Not soem 80s syth pop.
- The music does not match!
-No one sees a book falling from the sky in the open? Okay.
- I get that everyone else heads inside, but why would football players? I mean it is just rain and as far I’ve seen, Football players play in the rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Even high school. Then again, I went to a school with a highly competive football team so yeah.
-The bully? I don’t know if this movie knows what schools are like now and days. Bullies are few and far in between in that make. People resort to passive aggressiveness now or cyberbullying.
- Flash Thompson in Spider-man: Homecoming is today’s type of bully. Whoever this Biff looking motherfucker is a thing of the past.
- Misa(if that is even her name) has some stupid lines. Like you are such a stupid fuck? Really? stupid fuck? Alright.
-HEY DON’t TOUCH HER! Fuck, Light, why are you screaming? They just pushed the girl. They didn’t fucking impale her or beat her up. The fuck?
-Also Light Yagami, is a misogynist who thinks women are useless and get in his way. He would step in the way to save Misa from a bully, yes, but he would not be super abrasive about it or psycho.
-They really do not get Light Yagami at all. He is not a bullied character. If Light were the one stepping up to Biff from Back to the Future, Light would immediately threaten to go to the authority(in this case adults) or talk the guy down while being impossibly smug. He would not taunt the guy out loud. And the guy would not be in Light’s face taunting him because Light is, wait for it….one of the popular kids. Yes. Light is that asshole prep kid who has the future lined up for him. He is brilliant, and smart, and pretty, and all those things women love him for and why men want to be him. They fucked this movie up from the get go.
-Threatening child abuse? Really Light? Okay
-I am trying. I really am.
- White Yagami: I was beat up and you are worried that I threatened the academic integrity of school. You should pay attention to people who make life worse for everybody, principal, and not the guy is cheats for people.
- Thank you, principal for not buying into his bullshit.
- Boo-hoo, I was not rewarded for being a male savior.
-I stopped trying btw.
- The dialogue is soooo bad. “Hey I was awake…I was a tree or something?” What? Even? Ugh?
- Well White Yagami is the type of white boy who investigates the danger in horror movies.
-Okay, that scream will great. LMAO
-This home boy literally shrieked!
- He is really losing his shit. OMG.
- Ryuk is fucking wasteful. That is a whole lot of apple that is not eaten.
- White Yagami is so fucking crass. Everybody is dropping f-bombs like it is the biggest word they know.
-Ryuk sounds like Ryuk.
- Ryuk is tempting White Yagami to write in the Death Note? Oh God!
- Did these assholes even see Death Note? I really have to ask because ugh!
- This is the first 10 minutes, and I can’t even.
- Look, what made Light so special is that when Ryuk dropped the Death Note, he wanted to see what would happen. He thought someone who picked up the Death Note would just write someone’s name out of curiosity or even do some revenge kills because that is what people do. So when he tracks down Light and sees that he, after testing the Death Note out, filled out entire pages, he was shocked. Light did not need any push to start killing. He already had it in him.
- Like Ryuk is actually encouraging him? Are they exonerating Light in this movie?
- When did Death Note become fucking final destination?
-…You know what? Fuck this movie.I am not going to subject myself to this shit. I love myself too much to watch this and that is saying something because I have severe clinical depression.
so, @eddiesbadbreak and @eddiekasp and I were in TEARS the other day over the idea of adult richie tozier being super connected and up to date with the high school kids and community so here we go :
-Richie goes to Dunkin Donuts every morning before work and gets his breakfast : black coffee and a cinnamon donut. He becomes friends with the employees there, and it gets to a point where his order his ready for him when he comes in every morning.
-“Here’s your coffee Mr. Tozier, your donut with be right out!”
-He tips HUGE and the kids literally argue over who gets to bring him his order.
-Sometimes he sits down and talks to the kids and they catch him up on what is going down at school
“Mr. Tozier, you won’t believe what happened yesterday at school.”
“Marcus, sit your ass down and tell me everything.”
“So Benny is cheating on Grace with Ashley?”
“Yeah, but listen Mr. Tozier, the quaterback of the football team-”
“Yeah, Jeffrey and Benny have been hooking up too-”
“I haven’t seen Brenda lately, is she on vacation?”
“No Mr. Tozier she got fired last week.”
“Tell me everything Jared.”
-Everyone calls him Mr. Tozier
-Every time Richie and Eddie go out, it feels like they hear “Yeah Mr. Tozier!!” then Eddie yells back, “We are MARRIED!!!”
-Whenever the kids see Eddie they ask about Richie
“Hey Mr. Tozier hows the other Mr. Tozier?”
“He’s doing fine, Emma.”
“Tell Mr. Tozier I said hi! Bye Mr. Tozier!”
-Richie becomes the football announcer for all of the games and all of the kids love it because he over shares.
“And there goes Jacob Hudson! He’s coming in hot! This defense can’t seem to catch him! AaaaaaND TOUCHDOWN!!! What a great play, what a great kid, it’s truly a shame that his girlfriend is cheating on him, WHAT A NIGHT FOLKS!!!”
“Alright everybody it is now time for our player spotlight for tonight’s game. Tonight we have the one, the only, Rrrrrodger Rrrrranks! And folks let me tell you this kid has been playing the game since he could hold a football. Lets pray he makes it to the big time because this kid can’t make a cup of coffee for his life folks! Sorry Rodg, you suck at the food game, but not this game! Aaaand THAT’S tonight’s spotlight folks.”
-They sell tickets to the games solely because Richie is announcing.
-Eddie and Richie donate money to the school
-Richie chaperones at all of the school dances but he spikes the punch and ends up being the life of the party
-At the end of the school year, Richie throws a massive party at his big ass Beverly Hills mansion house.
-He picks four seniors and gets them to help him set up and plan the party. He lets them hire a DJ, make the guest list, and get the house ready.
-He fills the bottom of his pool with hundreds of red glow sticks
-He buys SO MUCH BOOZE and hires bartenders
-Eddie sets up a key jar and buys a bunch of condoms. He locks he & Richie’s bedroom but leaves the guest rooms open and leaves a bowl of condoms by the stairs.
-Richie calls the cab company and pays for them to be ready to drive kids home who have had too much to drink
-Richie gets super dressed up, he wears his red suit and yellow dress shoes and he slicks his hair back. He looks like a gameshow host
-All of the kids love his outfits and compliment him
-Richie gets hammered and stands of the roof, takes off his suit jacket and all the kids start yelling “TOZIER TOZIER TOZIER TOZIER” and he cannon-ball’s into the pool off the roof.
-Some of the girls get super drunk and try to flirt with him but Richie just laughs at them
-The next morning there are at least ten kids passed out somewhere in their house.
-Eddie goes around with a broom and pokes them awake then calls them a cab.
-Richie is super hungover
-Kids who couldn’t drive home stop by throughout the day to pick up their keys and their cars
Let’s Play Family as People You See in High School
(Sorry I didn’t do the whole Family because I don’t watch all of them and I wouldn’t be sure what to classify them as. Also I didn’t do all of the people from the groups because I don’t know them well enough )
Trevor- Looks like he could be a stoner and like he’s a surfer and about to go catch some sick waves despite the fact that you’re no where near the ocean and the closest thing you have to sick waves is when your friend jumps into the pool and ripples the water Aleks- The Actual Stoner kid whose parents would defend him at all costs. Like he’s the one who gets the nice car when everyone else has a car from like 10+ years ago. Honestly not a bad dude, would probably do stupid shit for money if you dared him to. James- That one kid who fights with teachers just to fuck with them or if they are actually being unfair. Would probably yell at the teacher if you asked nicely Brett- Good kid is friends with the rowdiest because honestly they’re better entertainment than he could ever find at home. Joe -that guy everyone knows somehow no one knows how or why everyone knows him but don’t question it
Gavin-Mass Media kid always making cool videos for his friends to watch. Somehow all the teachers know him as well as a good portion of the student body actually would consider him a friend Geoff-That kid everyone thinks is a stoner but is really just kinda weird and layed back probably ditches most of the classes except the one where he’s the library aid because he just spends the whole time reading and the librarian doesn’t give a shit Jeremy- Fights with teachers in the funnest way possible. Teachers still like him though because technically he is participating and doing the work but he lives to give teachers a hard time if he can get a laugh out of it Ryan- The kid who says the weirder things in class and people often just nervously laugh around him because they don’t know if its serious or if hes joking. Then some people realize he’s just a bit strange and actually pretty nice. He still creeps a few people out though Jack-The guy you talk to in every class you have with him but you never talk outside of the classroom because the classroom has a weird aura and it just makes you guys connect on a really deep level Michael-Probably that kid that skips all the time, you see him every now and then but its never for long. When he is there he tends to fuck around with his friends more than actually doing work but he somehow passes. This kid is a mystery that no one has yet uncovered Lindsay-Like the horse girl but with cats like she has cat notebooks, pets with cartoon cats on them, always covered in cat hair, draws cats in the margins of her notes. Really sweet and she is always happy to see photos of your cats Trevor- That smart kid who hangs around a bunch of idiots, like hes in all ap classes but with his friends his brain turns off and he can just become off the wall crazy Matt-The kid that brings a fucking full meal to class, like he had a carton of milk and a box of fruity pebbles and just whips out a bowl and spoon in the middle of lesson in first period. If you ask nicely he may bring you a bowl the next day as well Alfredo-The Cool Guy™, knows everyone probably plays sports, talk to him once he’ll make you feel like you’ve been friends for years and will say hi to you in the halls, remembers names really well
Adam-The guy in PE that looks like he should know what he’s doing but would honestly rather just not be there. You want to walk the mile, find him he’ll do it with you, don’t know how to throw a football that’s okay he probably tried and hit himself in the head somehow, nice dude and could probably lift you one handed but just kinda doesn’t want to Bruce- You know that punk rocker that everyone’s afraid of well hes the opposite, he wears band tees sure but he does so like hes fucking ready to talk about why this band is the fucking best and everyone should listen to it. Kinda sucky music taste but oh well he has good intentions Lawrence-The Nerd of the school like he knows about a million and four video games and movies are his jam. Could recite some movies word for word if someone let him. Kinda bulky so no one picks on him as well as being friends with the fucking built and tallest people in the school James-Is the Kid that takes PE way too seriously “Come on guys its not even that hard of a run” is a football player but also a huge nerd Elyse- That one that knows everything that happens in the school but shares absolutely none of it. Like tell her your secrets if you want like she wont tell anyone besides maybe her best friend but that’s honestly kinda expected at this point. People will just vent to her, she may not be great comforting but hey she wont tell a soul Matt Peake- Somehow everyone knows him despite never hearing him talk. Like hes a ghost people remember seeing him in class but dont remember him coming in to the room, they swear he teleports sometimes because they’ll see him still putting all his stuff into his backpack as they walk out of the room and then they look up to see him standing on the second floor with a group of people.
Greg- Is a teachers fucking worst nightmare, the kid is loud, smart, and will proudly voice his opinion and when your wrong. Half the time in class can be spent arguing with him if you let it. He is usually well informed but fucking stop interrupting the class we have to actually learn something Tim Gettys- The guy who always looks strangely put together no matter if he has a extra morning class where he has to show up an hour earlier than most. He’ll be put together and have a happy smile on Nick Scarpino- The kid who just wants people to fucking chill for a second like he’s the one who will actually do the work instead of fucking around because like hell he wants to take this home and finish it fuck that home is where he can be away from school he doesn’t want to bring it home. Is the kid that actually will turn in the assignment even if the teacher forgot to ask, but he’ll do it after class so the rest of the class don’t have to worry
