i kind of love this cap

I was the last in a long line of grandkids on both sides of the family. No one has ever said as much, but I’m pretty sure I was an “oops” baby; the result of one too many glasses of wine and a couple over forty who thought unplanned pregnancies were for teens.

Oops.

Let’s Get Something Straight.

LET HUFFLEPUFFS HAVE A RESTING BITCH FACE. LET HUFFLEPUFFS BE FIREY AND PASSIONATE. LET HUFFLEPUFFS BE INCREDIBLY WITTY AND STUDIOUS. LET HUFFLEPUFFS GET INTO FIST FIGHTS.

LET HUFFLEPUFFS BE MORE THAN FICKLE, POLITE, PACIFIST, HAPPY-GO-LUCKY, BLITHE, AND APPROACHABLE. BEING A HUFFLEPUFF IS MORE THAN LOOKING INNOCENT AND SWEET.

I am a Hufflepuff with a horrible resting bitch face. I am a Hufflepuff who people see as unapproachable. I am a Hufflepuff with strong beliefs and passion.

The traits found in Hufflepuff are listed below:

  • Dedication
  • Hard Work
  • Fair play
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Tolerance
  • Unafraid of toil
  • Loyalty

Hufflepuffs are dedicated. They are dedicated to their studies, their friends, their families, their hobbies- Hufflepuffs show dedication to the things they love. They don’t dedicate themselves to be praised. it is a self sacrificing quality, much like the rest of the Hufflepuff House traits. Dedication goes hand-in-hand with hard work. It’s enduring when shit hits the fan, it’s getting out of bed when all you want to do is sleep, it’s not accepting handouts, it’s becoming successful through honest work. Hufflepuffs get the most out of working hard, not smart. This isn’t because they aren’t smart, it’s because they believe it benefits them more. Hardwork brings knowledge. They learn how to fight with integrity to get what they want. They most definitely aren’t ones to cheat. Given the choice between cheating and failure, they would choose failure.

Patience is a virtue. I don’t take this to mean that Hufflepuffs don’t mind waiting around if a friend is running late, it means that Hufflepuffs are more willing than most to put a cap on their temperament. Hufflepuffs don’t get bothered easy. Whether it’s from natural ability or a constantly running internal monologue keeping them from blowing a fuse, they manage to handle adversity with as much dignity and grace as they can muster. I think it’s hard to tell what a Hufflepuff is thinking because they keep their opinions to themselves unless asked to express it. Patience has nothing to do with passion. A Hufflepuff is a master at picking their battles. They know what’s worth losing their temper over.  

Kindness: benevolent, intended for benefits rather than profit, loving, expressing goodwill. Who the fuck wants to be mean and rude all the time to everyone? Being kind does not mean being pushover. When did it become taboo to be kind? Why is being edgy all the sudden associated with being rude, pretentious, mean and cynical? Being kind is sincerely asking someone “how are you?” and being unafraid to receive an honest and drawn out response. Being kind is being a good listener, helping people for their benefit and not your own, it’s picking up trash in the movie theater so that the staff has less to clean. Being kind is leaving sweet, anonymous notes for people just to make their day a little bit better. Being kind is reveling in making someone smile or laugh. Being kind is smiling back when someone smiles at you. To be benevolent, to be nice, to be kind pushes away all self interest. It’s a selfless trait.

Tolerance is just nodding along with some gun slinging, homophobic, misogynistic jerk rambling about how Donald Trump will make America “great again”, even though you strongly disagree. Hufflepuffs, if you’ll notice, get along with virtually each house. They do not take it upon themselves to judge. Hufflepuffs are masters at accepting things that they cannot change; they cope well with diversity. If someone came up to a Hufflepuff and said that they were a supporter of pure-blood supremacy, the Hufflepuff would nod, say something (passive but sincere) along the lines of “that’s an interesting opinion,” then carry on with their day. Though they may not be at all happy about what was said, they do not take it upon themselves to get everyone to see the way that they see things. You can’t force people to listen. It’s not that Hufflepuffs don’t have opinions, they do, but, as the saying goes, “Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one.” They find that people respect your opinion and ask for it more when you present a judgement free environment for them.

This house is loyal. They’re a tolerant bunch, sure, but they will not tolerate bullies. It’s their sense of fraternity and loyalty that gives Hufflepuff something worth fighting for. It wouldn’t surprise me to see a Hufflepuff seventh year getting into a fist fight with a Ravenclaw seventh year because the Ravenclaw was making snarky remarks about a first year getting sorted into Hufflepuff. Hufflepuffs will argue, punch, kick, pull hair and scream if you somehow hurt someone they hold dear to them.  Don’t forget how fucking raw Badgers are. They’re one of the most fearless animals in the animal kingdom. This can maybe be seen as a flaw, however. In Goblet of Fire, the Hufflepuff House got so caught up in the competition between Cedric and Harry, good judgement was blurred by their unwavering loyalty. This brings me to believe that Hufflepuffs, if sufficiently provoked, can attack with the most underhanded and vicious insults ever. I don’t think it would be wise to bring a Hufflepuff to their breaking point in hopes of seeing this animosity. In most circumstances, however, loyalty is a virtue.  

I am so sick of the stigma that Hufflepuffs are these soft little balls of dough that are just so lukewarm compared to the other houses. Need I remind y’all that Hufflepuffs fought at the Battle of Hogwarts without hesitation? They rose to the occasion, they weren’t indifferent about the situation at hand at all- they were selfless, they were fearless. They fought because they loved their school, their friends, their teachers, and because it was the right thing to do.

  • Kindness should not be mistaken for weakness.
  • Tolerance should not be mistaken for neutrality
  • Patience should not be mistaken for dispassion
  • Loyalty gives them reason to fight
  • Hardwork and dedication make them goal-oriented
  • Fair play does not mean there is a lack of initiative

A Hufflepuff is not a clone of the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Hufflepuffs can have strong opinions, be passionate, reckless, brave, and enterprising.

Because Helga Hufflepuff didn’t sort her students by a particular aptitude, Hufflepuff should be one of the most diverse houses in Hogwarts. So don’t generalize all Hufflepuffs to fit the “looks like a cinnamon roll and is a cinnamon roll” archetype. Hufflepuffs can be fierce as fuck.

Friendly reminder Steve Rogers is one of the youngest Avengers out of the group.

Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers was only 21 when he went through the super soldier experimentation.

Friendly reminder that when Steve Rogers was awoken in the modern century, for him it had only been a few weeks since he had lost Bucky.

Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers is only in his mid-twenties and still does everything he can to take care of those around him. 

Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers has PTSD and severe depression, as shown in several of the movies and comics per his suicidal tendencies. 

Friendly reminder that almost everyone Steve Rogers knew in 1943 was dead when he woke up, and he was faced with the ideal that he had outlived everyone he loved.

Friendly reminder that Steve Rogers still needs to make mistakes and be selfish, and still deserves to be loved and cherished. He isn’t like Iron Man or Hawkeye, he’s not lived any sort of life only battle and carnage. He deserves to have someone look after him everyone once and awhile. 

everyone keeps mentioning wonder woman crossovers with thor and cap but have you considered diana and t’challa meeting at a UN convention with diana admiring and respecting t’challa for being such a kind and caring king who loves his people and will protect them no matter what (because that’s a leader ww1 douchebag), and t’challa respecting her both for her strength and will to do what’s right (and of course because he knows about the no man’s land thing)

they get along so well seeing as both come from secluded kingdoms where everyone in their society is cared for and respected (both tend to complain about the rest of the white male dominated world) then he introduces her to a fellow princess and she swoons

and diana won’t stop gushing about her to bruce, “bruce she’s so amazing, she’s infinitely smarter than you” and shuri proceeds to convince t’challa to let her go with diana to themyscira, because “t’challa it’s an island full of women

and t’challa enjoys how diana can’t get enough of listening to shuri speaking so passionately about her scientific developments and methods for improving the world itself, and he adores how in love and happy shuri looks (especially when diana picks her up ever so gently and flies her just about anywhere because shuri enjoys it so much)

long story short diana the princess of themyscira begins courting shuri the princess of wakanda and this hc got a lot gayer than i initially planned

how I see the signs and what I want them to know
  • (side note - View of a Virgo rising, Leo sun in the 12th, Libra moon in 2nd, mercury Cancer in 11th, venus Leo in 12th, mars Leo in 11th)
  • Aries: was once my best friend, she made literally everything in my life brighter and always helped me to just enjoy things and stop worrying all the time. Also great hugs. Just simply has that energy, wherever it may be - physically, mentally, staying up until you binge watched that show, giving you their last money so you can get yourself something to eat before you starve to death, always down for a talk and a walk even if they had a packed schedule. Please don't miss out on times when you just have to take a day off to get your beautiful and strong energy back. I care about your health so please don't forget to eat properly and don't miss out on that quality time if needed.
  • Taurus: a girl from my drama class and my little sisters moon sign, I am just so in love with your sense for aesthetic. Total sunshines. I feel like I can always rely on you, super compassionate and knows how to make you feel comfortable when youre not. I love that when you have a goal in your mind, you will give your everything to achieve that! Also so humble but like I want you so desperately to know how beautiful I think you are!! I enjoy your company a lot. Please don't be afraid of changes, I know that's such a mainstream thing to write for Taurus but I really do believe that maybe sometimes you need to be reminded that life can also begin at the end of your comfort zone.
  • Gemini: a guy and a girl from biology class, I am literally stunned at how much these people know. Eloquent fluffballs. I could listen to you spreading knowledge 24/7, make great jokes in my opinion and just kind of knows... everyone?? Get along with so many people, can be very chill but also full of energy when they're talking about things they are interested in. Also fun-fact kings and queens. Please remind yourself to stay loyal to your true friends, you may know many people with whom you get along with so well and for sure everyone is intersting in their own way, but it's very possible to feel lonely in a crowd. Your closest friends will always get you out of that and help you, I promise.
  • Cancer: a close friend of mine, literally the most caring person I've ever met. Actual comedians. I don't know I just straight up fell in love with your humour. All the Cancers I know have or had some extreme physical problems going on, please get well soon if you read this and you're also not feeling well. Mentally on the next level, strong and kind of unbreakable. Don't hide their feelings because they just know that when you bottle up your feelings it's never going to end well. They just get you and will be there for you no matter what. Please take care of yourself just as well as you do with your friends and family, you are a true blessing and it's definitely okay to rant or cry or just let it all out.
  • Leo: my english teacher and a guy I used to be close with, very often completely misunderstood and taken for granted, which can lead to unhealthy behaviour. Will make you feel great after a plain shit day. I strive to be this talented at just expressing myself or being confident, even if you just want the world to think you are confident when you're actually not. Cuddly queens and kings. Better not hurt their pride because it took them a lot of time to actually get to that level and in a world where people hate on you for loving yourself, to them it feels like, despite all their work, they are not worth of loving themselves. Please don't forget that although sometimes it's hard to look in the mirror and like what you see, there are caring and warm-hearted people who love you just the way you are.
  • Virgo: a girl in my class I simply adore, I always annoy you with my endless compliments. Kind of just in love with these down-to-earth and sweet people. Either super chill or worried a lot, I wish I could just hug you until you feel less stressed. Smol but strong beans you can learn a lot from. So reliable, I actually hate doing group projects and always want to do everything myself but since you share that opinion we created something I was really proud of and now we always do them together. Please remember that passion is something you shouldn't be ashamed of, you simply don't have to be because it's something you love and your needs are valid. Also dreaming big, it's possible, especially for you so why not?
  • Libra: a girl I recently got to know and am already completely amazed by, literal social butterflies who sometimes only know in hindsight how much they enjoyed the company of someone because they adapt so easily and it's rare to find someone where you can just simply be yourself. Love how they view life and that they make me want to talk more. Very open and you never feel excluded because they just know how to include everyone. Please don't forget to remind yourself who you truly are and not to lose yourself in another person, because there really is only one you no matter how good you are at adapting to literally every social situation, you are amazing and I want you to be comfortable as well.
  • Scorpio: my dad and my ex boyfriend's mom, two very caring peole in their own way. I always love how sharp their sarcasm can be. Can comfort extremely well when they want to. So many secrets and things to know about them that I can lose myself in them wanting to explore whats actually behind their shell. Teaches you life lessons. Please don't forget that humans aren't flawless and that's completely okay. You don't have to hold onto old grudges, communication is key and talking about these things, confronting these people who did you wrong will help you grow as a person.
  • Sagittarius: an old friend of mine, very cute people who get interested in so many things and they are so versatile and adventurous I absolutely love their lively nature. Memes™. Total dorks you can fall for in a second. Are actually the best partners to just talk to about anything because they will be interested and share their opinion with you. Please remind yourself that cutting off people can be a very wise decision and you don't have to keep up with everyones shit if that's just not what you're in for.
  • Capricorn: I am literally so attracted to these people it's unreal, although I kind of always think that they don't like me...... anyways, my bigger twin sisters are caps and they are humble souls who really had to fight for a lot in life sadly. So proud of you. Keep up with the hard work, you really deserve everything. So realistic and pure I have heart eyes. Supportive and extremely loyal. Will stand up for you if you need it. Straight face™ but still manages to make even the most serious people laugh. Please remind yourself to not overdo it with the work, take a day off to relax and let yourself go maybe, even if it's hard - with the right people you don't ever have to be afraid of being yourself.
  • Aquarius: my ex boyfriend whom I had a crush on for like 4 years, teached me great life lessons. Will always have a weakness for aquas, they just attract me so much, how much of a fluffy dork can you be tbh? Capacity of acceptance is incredible. So much fun to be with. Are kind of just good at everything? You can talk to them about anything, it won't feel weird, they won't question it and just talk to you about that topic. So friendly, an underrated trait in my opinion, just complete and simple friendliness you enjoy to the fullest. Please remind yourself to let people not only see your amazing shell but also your stunning core, there are people who love to talk about the same things you love and nothing about you is weird, you are special and I absolutely love it.
  • Pisces: a very sweet guy I've been texting with for the past months, very open minded and also have that sensitivity I strive to have. Very inspirational smol puppy. Actual daydreamers™, may be late to school but love deeply and would never neglect your love. Kind of hate almost everything that's planned out? (I'm sorry I just love to plan things out) will hug you no matter what. Does not fear to dream big, is very talented at artsy stuff in my opinion. Please don't forget that even if it seems hard, and yes our school system is kind of very bad,we get to have that education and your dreams will be reality if you work hard enough to achieve them. You have so much potential, please don't ever waste it.

Spider-man Spoilers

SPOILERS!!!

STOP!

TURN AWAY!

SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!



A few things about Spider-Man Homecoming:

1. Still really like the new Marvel Studios logo/intro. I thought it was great to hear the classic Spider-Man theme playing over it.

2. Good to see Happy again. I don’t think we’ve seen him since Iron Man 3.

3. Pepper Potts! I love seeing Tony and Pepper together. She makes Stark seem more likable and Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow are great together.

4. Happy mentioned some kind of belt for Thor and specs or a prototype for Cap’s new shield. Tony is already making Captain America a new shield even though they haven’t completely patched things up and he’s still on the run😊>

5.Damage Control was a big part of this movie. Tyne Daly was the director, which makes me think that Damage Control tv show may be happening.

6. Why would they cast Donald Glover in a part so small? 🤔I know he’s a fan, but it makes me think we’ll see him again in a future movie. He was great though.

7. I was thinking that Zendaya’s role was weirdly small, until the end when we got the MJ reveal! We will definitely be seeing her more in the next one.

8. Marvel trolled us with the Captain America PSA post credits scene about patience. 😂I thought it was hilarious.

anonymous asked:

Uhhh, bughead switch with Archie and Fred and Betty ends up shot?? For a prompt. Thats v depressing omg 😅

Finally wrote this prompt up! Hope you enjoy. ❤️


Betty and Jughead sit across from each other in a booth at Pop’s, not really knowing what to say or where to go from here.

Jughead is a Southside Serpent now that’s the only thing Betty knows for sure. Things had been perfect the night before. They had told each other they loved each other, they had finally admitted it aloud. The feeling that coursed through Betty when Jughead had told her he loved her was unlike any other she had ever experienced. She’d felt happy, finally a sense of true happiness had ran through her. She’d been excited. Now that they’d taken this step in their relationship, everything felt so much more secure and certain. She had known from the beginning that Jughead Jones wasn’t like any other boy she’d ever known. He was different, he was everything. When she thought of where she’d be years from now, she always pictured Jughead by her side. She had been ready to give herself to him.

She never even made out with a guy before Jughead decided to kiss her that day in her room, but there was no one else in the world that she could ever imagine losing her virginity to. She knew it was supposed to be something special and unique, at least that’s what the books and movies said. She didn’t care for any of that, though. As long as Jughead was the person she was with, it was special. She didn’t need roses and candles or cheesy music playing in the background. She just needed him. And she could have had him.

If only.

Now she sits in front of him, not knowing if she can accept the person in front of her.

He’s wearing his brand new leather jacket. It looks good on him, she won’t try to lie. He looks sexy in leather and it’s a look she could have gotten used to if it weren’t for the serpent on the back of it that let everyone know who he was now. This wasn’t the Jughead she had known and she didn’t know if she could know him now or if she even wanted to. It had been one thing when it was just FP that was a Serpent. She could accept that, FP wasn’t her boyfriend. Jughead was a completely different story.

“I’m still the same,” he tells her. He’s said it several times since they’ve gotten to Pop’s. Betty had stormed out of the trailer once the Serpent’s had left last night. It was more on impulse than anything else. She couldn’t hide from him forever though, and she knew that. It was why she had agreed to come and meet him for breakfast. The pancakes in front of her stay untouched.

“You’re already changing and you don’t even see it.” She doesn’t mean on the outside, not really at least. Jughead sits up straight, arm thrown over the back of the booth. It’s how it usually sits but where he’d been hunched over and broody before, now he sits up straight and confident. She wants to be here for it, she wants to love him through this, but it’s too much too soon and it’s confusing her. “Going to Southside High was one thing, but this is a whole different ballgame. You’re the son of the leader of the Serpents, Juggie. What does that mean for you?”

“It means I have a family, Betts.” He says it so gently. The words break her heart. She knows he’s right. With his dad in jail, the Serpent’s probably are the closest thing he has to a family right now.

“You have me,” she reminds him, biting her lip. “I’m your family.”

“I know you are, but they can protect me. They can offer things that you can’t.” The words sting but she understands what he’s trying to say to her. “This doesn’t change anything. I’m still the same person I was last night before all of this happened and I’m going to continue being that person.”

“What if everything changes?”

“What if it doesn’t? Or what if it does? So what if things change? We could use a little bit of change around here. Who knows, maybe things will be better.”

She lets out a little snort, but she smiles at him, at the truth behind his words. He’s not trying to tell her what she wants to hear. He’s being honest.

“I love you, Jughead Jones,” she reminds him. “That’s one thing that won’t change.”

It’ll take some getting used to and she still isn’t sure that she likes the idea at all, but she knows that if she truly loves Jughead then she needs to stand by him during this time. The Serpent’s are his family now but so is she. She can offer Jughead a different kind of protection than them.

“I’m going to go to the restroom,” she tells him, standing up from the booth. “I need to wash my hands.” She’d been playing with the cap from her bottle of syrup and it had gotten her fingers a bit sticky.

“Okay.” Jughead smiles at her before picking up a piece of bacon from his plate and taking a bite from it.

Jughead is still Jughead, he’d been right about that. She had just been so worried about the damn leather jacket and what it symbolized that she was letting her mind run free. She just needed to cool down and splash some water on her face. Things would be okay for them, she knew it. Jughead was her soulmate, in every sense of the word. She wouldn’t let something as simple as a biker gang ruin them.

She hears a commotion outside of the restroom and dries her hands quickly, wanting to hurry and see what’s going on. The door shuts quietly behind her and as she walks further into the diner, she can hear someone yelling. She tries to listen, but her heart is beating way too quickly in her chest.


Jughead doesn’t know how to happens, one minute he’s eating his waffles and the next minute he looks up and someone is pointing a gun right at Pop. It doesn’t make sense. Who comes into Pop’s waving a gun around? No one. That doesn’t happen in general, not here in Riverdale and especially not at Pop’s. The man yells, points at a register and Jughead assumes he’s trying to rob the place. A burst of anger flows through him. Who is this person to demand money from Pop, a hardworking man who has never done anything wrong to anyone in his life before?

He stands up, he doesn’t know what he’s going to do but he knows that he can’t just sit here and watch this go down. He hears the tiny footsteps before he actually sees her. Betty steps out from the hallway that leads to the restrooms. Her face looks both confused and terrified. Jughead shakes his head at her, a cold fear going through his body at the thought of her being seen by the armed man. He motions for her to go back to the restroom, but she just stands there as if she’s frozen in her spot.

The gunman finally seems to notice Jughead and he pushes Pop back before charging towards him, gun raised as he yells out obscenities.

“Look, calm down,” Jughead puts his hands up, trying to show that he isn’t a threat. The man doesn’t seem to care, as he comes closer to Jughead. Before he knows it, he can feel the cold metal of the barrel of the gun being pointed at his head. The man is shouting something, but he can’t hear him. He can just hear the sound of his blood rushing through his body. It’s a weird feeling and he closes his eyes.

“Hey!”

It happens way too quickly after that. A loud pop rings in his ears and he waits for everything to go dark, for everything to stop existing. He wishes that’s what would have happened. Instead he opens his eyes and watches in slow motion as Betty lifts a shaking hand to her side and presses down on it. His mouth falls open in surprise, in horror, he doesn’t know. She pulls her hand away from her side slowly and looks down at it, seeing it covered in blood.

“Betty,” he whispers out, suddenly glued to his spot. Her hand continues shaking and she looks up at him, face looking more pale than he’s ever seen it and then he watches as she finally collapses. Only then does he move from his spot, running over to her and catching her as she falls to the ground.

“Betty!” He yells out in fear, cradling her body in his arms. “It’s not that bad,” he whispers to her as she looks at him, eyes wide and scared. “Hey, hey. It’s not that bad, okay? It’s not that bad.” He puts his hand to the wound, trying to stop the bleeding. There’s a puddle of blood around them and it’s so much, it’s too much. When he brings his hand away, it’s completely drenched in blood and only then does he start crying.

“J—,” she tries to talk but nothing comes out and Jughead shushes her, not wanting her to tire herself out.

“Don’t talk, don’t talk. You’re okay.” Her eyes start to close and he shakes her a little. “Stay awake, okay? Stay awake. Pop already called the ambulance, they’re on their way, but you have to stay awake.” She looks up at him, but it’s like she’s looking right through him as her eyelids flutter. “You have to stay awake, Betty!” She looks at him one more time before closing her eyes again. This time she doesn’t open them.

“Betty?” He cries out. “Wake up, you have to stay awake!” He shakes her gently again, desperate to see her eyes open. “Betty!” She stays still and he screams out in agony. “You don’t get to do this! You don’t get to do this to me!”

“Sir,” a gentle but stern voice speaks up behind him. “You need to let go of her now.”

“You don’t get to leave me!” He yells down at her, crying hard as the paramedics take Betty away from him. His clothes and hands are covered in blood, her blood and the sight is almost too much for him to bear. He watches as they set her onto a gurney and the sight hits him right in his chest and he feels like he can’t breathe. This doesn’t happen to girls like Betty. Betty doesn’t deserve this. Betty shouldn’t be leaving Pop’s on a fucking gurney. But she is. She is and there isn’t a damn thing he can do about it.


Four days. Betty sleeps for four days.

Jughead stays by her bed, making sure that her chest doesn’t stop rising. Everyone comes by to visit. Veronica with her tears and expensive teddy bear. Archie with his sad eyes that never seem to cry. Kevin with a bouquet of flowers. Cheryl even stops by. She didn’t say anything though. She had just stood by the bed and looked at Betty, brushing the blonde’s hair away from her face every now and then.

Her family comes by. Alice cries, Polly cries, Hal stands by with the most sorrowful look on his face.

And Jughead never leaves. He doesn’t talk to anyone either. He just stares at Betty with a face void of emotions.

On the fourth day, her fingers flex in his palm and he watches her eyelids flutter open. He doesn’t jump up for joy like he should have. Instead he just watches her. Once she looks at him, he hands her a cup of water, assuming that her throat is dry. She drinks the water and tries to smile at him afterwards, Jughead’s face just stays stoic.

“Hi,” she croaks out as her voice breaks. “Have you been here the whole time?”

“The whole four days.” Her eyes widen, probably shocked from hearing how long she’d been under for. “Everyone’s been by.” He gestures around the room, showing her the gifts that everyone had left.

“That was nice of them. Is it just you now?”

He nods. “Your mom went home for a shower. She’ll be back soon, she’ll probably come in her towel if they tell her you’ve woken up.”

Betty laughs before wincing in the obvious pain it must cause her.

“Do they know who did it?” She asked as soon as she recovers. “Is anyone else hurt?”

“No to both of your questions.”

Betty frowns. Jughead can imagine the thoughts going through her mind, wanting to know who did this and why, but he’s already one step ahead of her.

“I’m going to find out who did this,” he promises her, voice hard, as he squeezes her hand and looks her in the eyes. “I’m going to find him and I swear to God, I’ll kill him myself.”

Betty just gives him an uneasy smile. “I love you.”

She doesn’t believe him, he knows she doesn’t. She doesn’t think he’ll do anything, but she didn’t just witness the love of her life almost die in her arms. Something had been taken away from him in that moment, something innocent and he knew it wasn’t coming back.

He tells her he loves her too and places a kiss on her forehead.

He had seen a tattoo of a wolf on the man’s arm when he’d taken the gun away from Jughead and pointed it at Betty. He can hardly remember anything else, but he remembers the tattoo vividly. He keeps that information to himself. He doesn’t want the cops looking for him. They won’t bring him the justice he deserves. They don’t even know where to start.

But Jughead does.

Growing up, Bucky had always kept his soulmark hidden. Not even Steve had seen it, which stung a little bit, knowing that Bucky wouldn’t even trust his best friend enough to show it. He had assumed that it was in a place which made Bucky uncomfortable, but still. It’s not like he would have laughed or teased him about it.

 The truth is that Bucky never had a soulmark.
