A/N: I debated writing this for a while but it absolutely infuriates me how this situation was addressed so casually. I wanted to write something that actually included someone attempting to help Archie, or at least him having a reaction ffs.
Summary: Surrounded by people, especially friends, Archie still finds himself stifled and feeling alone when past issues creep up on him. He seeks solace in a person he hasn’t spoken to in years.
Word Count: 1,956
Warnings: Mentions of statutory rape, underage sex, abuse, panic attacks. (It should be okay if you’ve seen the show but please take care of yourselves, lovelies.)
