Prompt idea! 5 different ways that Bughead made their friends totally see them as #relationshipgoals. Btdubs, I'm in love w/ your writing :D
Hey thanks so much! I love this prompt.
It had been three months since he and Betty had started actually dating, they weren’t your typical couple, you could tell just by the looks of them.
Betty was always put together impeccably not a hair out of place, not a wrinkle on her sundress and definitely never a food stain on her cardigan.
She took her appearance very seriously, she wasn’t into too much makeup and nothing fake was ever going near her body, but the OCD made her strive for perfection , evident in the way she looked.
Jughead on the other hand, rolled out of bed and threw on whatever layers he could, never really knowing when he may have to pack up and relocate, his hairstyle was more run your fingers through twice and pray it wasn’t sticking out of the beanie.
So when his girlfriend overslept and wouldn’t dare risk her perfect attendance she had thrown on a cardigan with a hole in it.
Betty never wore a dress without a cardigan so half way through first period Kevin had run into jugheads calculus class saying he needed to speak to him urgently.
As Kevin pulled him along to the girls restroom he explained Betty was having a panic attack because of the hole in her sweater.
He walked into the bathroom and nodded at Ronnie making sure she knew it was okay for her to wait outside.
Kevin and Veronica were pacing outside the bathroom for a solid five minutes before Betty and jughead emerged.
Betty wrapped up in jugheads blue flannel surprisingly matching Betty’s dress, and jughead in just a tshirt. As the two walked back to class hand in hand Veronica whispered in Kevin’s ear
“Hashtag relationship goals.”
Jughead was always hungry
The quirk was loved by everyone in the friend group, always brought up in a joking manner when they went out to eat.
Jughead would laugh along and shrug his shoulders taking whatever was offered his way.
Even though they tried to involve his girlfriend in the jokes she always just shook her head and passed the rest of her food to juggie.
Then the news hit the fan
Jughead was homeless,
suddenly his hunger wasn’t so funny and when they went out to eat the awkward silence before they ordered was almost deafening.
After about a week of awkward meals and shaky comments Betty had had enough.
Jughead reached for fries on the table and he tension rose before Betty erupted
“Oh for petes sake, he’s fine! Jughead is living with Archie, I assure you he gets more than three meals a day and if you haven’t noticed the stress of his family hasn’t made him lose his appetite so can we all just get over this awkwardness and eat our damn food, you’re only making him feel worse, and I am not okay with that.”
She huffed and plopped back down in the booth sinking into jughead as he kissed the side of her head and whispered
There was never anymore awkwardness around the table and if jughead was getting a few extra leftovers Betty never mentioned it.
They were fighting.
Josie and Valerie noticed before anyone else.
They were arguing in quiet whispers almost every time they saw each other in the hallway. Neither of the girls wanted to mention it to Betty as she dropped down at there table in home economics.
They just stared at her before she snapped her head towards them.
They both looked shocked before Josie slowly put her hand on Betty’s arm
“Everything okay pussycat?”
Betty took a deep breath and sighed.
“He doesn’t trust me. He thinks I still have feelings for Archie but he doesn’t get he’s all I want and more.” She said teary eyed.
Josie was afraid of this, those two were just not compatible. Betty cared to much and jughead seemed like all he cared about was food. It just wasn’t gonna work out.
Valerie on the other hand had been shipping this couple since the start. Pulling out her phone she sent jughead a quick text
“Your girl is crying, thinks you don’t trust her. Fix it.”
About two minutes later Jughead burst through the doors interrupting mrs.dicker and catching the whole classes attention.
His eyes searched for Betty
“I’m sorry, I care about you, I don’t wanna lose you, I’m an idiot but hopefully I’m still your idiot.”
The whole class turned to the teacher and shushed her.
Betty stood up and moved to jughead
“It’s okay jughead, I just need you to trust me.”
He placed his forehead to hers,
Josie’s jaw was on the floor while Valerie smirked in her seat before snapping a picture of the couple and turning to Josie
“Hashtag relationship goals
Jughead had a black eye and Betty Cooper was not happy about it.
When jughead came into school that Wednesday every eye was drawn to the usually invisible mysterious boy.
Because wow that was a shiner.
No one knew how to ask , so immediately the rumors flew.
Betty had beaten him up because he cheated
His dad had taken a swing at him like usual
Archie finally realized he loved Betty and was fighting for her honor.
Fortunately none of those things were true.
The explanation came walking through the doors only ten minutes after
Reggie mantle, with a busted lip and bandaged nose.
The halls went quite for a minute before Veronica burst out in laughter.
“You messed with the wrong guys girlfriend mantle”
She said in between loud laughs.
The pieces finally came together.
Reggie had tried to get Betty to sleep with him after cheerleading and wouldn’t seem to take no for an answer, unfortunately for him jughead was coming to pick up Betty and had caught him with his hands on his girl.
As Betty shoved past Reggie she stood in front of him.
“Hit my boyfriend again Reggie mantle and your face won’t be the only thing broken.”
As jughead pulled his fiery girlfriend away he placed a kiss on the top of her head smiling at Reggie and giving him a wave.
Reggie was shaking with anger as he pushed past everyone in the halls to get to the weight room.
Cheryl smirked from her place by the lockers
“Hashtag Relationship goals”
Archie still had feelings for Betty,
jughead knew that and while he pretended to be cool with Betty and his relationship jughead saw the way he would keep his hand on her back a little too long, or offer to carry her books to class.
He couldn’t say anything they were friends, all of them were.
Not to mention he couldn’t blame the guy for being in love with Betty, she was pretty great.
But when he offered only Betty a ride home as they were walking together,
He was irritated to say the least.
“She’s cool dude, we’re together I won’t let any riverdale thugs get to her” jughead joked but kept his face serious
“Yeah but it’s kind of chilly out there, you can hop in Betty, I promise it’s clean.”
He threw her his best American boy smile
As soon as she opened her mouth to answer
Jughead stepped forward
“I said she’s fine, bro you can keep driving.”
Archie parked the car getting ready to get out of it
“Why don’t you let your girl answer.”
“If my girl wanted to answer you she would have.”
They bickered back and forth
“ENOUGH” Betty yelled.
Both boys heads snapped to hers and while Archie looked confused jughead seemed to know exactly what was going on as he slowly backed away from Archie biting his lip and bowing his head.
“I am not an object, I can speak, I can make my own decisions. I do not need to be taken care of or protected from anything.” She turned to raise a pointed eyebrow at jughead who nodded and grabbed her hand
“I know I’m sorry bets. It’s my fault I overacted, testosterone ya know?” He shrugged smiling apologetically.
She nodded and kissed him quickly turning back to Archie
“And as for you, thankyou for the offer but theres nothing I like better than walking home from school with my boyfriend, he keeps me plenty warm, have a nice night Archie.”
She tugged jughead along moving foreward leaving Archie standing by his running car.
Archie wanted that kind of a relationship is this what Ronnie was always talking about when she mentioned
Hashtag relationship goals.
I was thinking about this and then I found this interview lol for my, this season it’s not about the triangle between Betty, Veronica and Archie. I kinda think that they’re going to play that in uncoming seasons, begining in season 2. And for what KJ say’s (Archie) in the end of the season 1 archie it’s going to development a crush for one of the girls (betty or veronica)
yeah I’m a barchie shipper but I think the crush is for betty because in the leaked scene about Bughead (veronica saying: he’s your boyfriend) Archie looks jealous and in another where he found out the truth about Jughead father’s and he’s angry with him he look at betty and ask her: did you know that his father it’s a serpenter? and for my that was…I don’t know like he was a jealous and Overprotective friend (btw he was angry but idk)
I think that betty still have feelings for Archie because it’s been just a couple of weeks since everything and you just don’t forget something than builds over the years (and less when we are talking about a major crush whit your best friend) and yes, Bughead it’s gonna happen and i like that because betty and jughead deserve to be happy and before that you end with someone you have to see and explore other relationships and I would like to see this thing! but in the end I don’t think (beging imparcial) than Bughead is endgame, and if you think about it they’re incredible as friends, and the develoment between both it’s going to be amazing if they decide to be just friends (i think that maybe jughead will found’s out that betty’s still have feelings for archie) ithe show it’s just started and we have a long road to see, the ships can grow and wait because right now we have to hate geraldine and found out the truth about jason’s murder lol my opinion you could agree or disagree <3
You look yourself over once more in your mirror before shooting
yourself finger guns and smiling. “You look hot, Y/N, and tonight is the night
you’re going to make a move on Betty Cooper. Unless she’s uncomfortable, then
you had better stop that shit.”
With a deep breath, you head out the door and to Pop’s,
where you’d be hanging out with Veronica, Betty, Jughead and Kevin. Once you
step inside, you’re relaxed by the atmosphere and music quietly playing in the
background. As per the usual, you’d gotten there early, so only Jughead was
currently seated, typing away on his laptop that he dragged everywhere with
him. Sliding in beside him, you poke his side.
“What’s up Jug? Still working on that novel?” You try to
peek at it, making him laugh and close the lid.
“Yeah, but no sneak peeks, Y/N. I gotta keep up the shock
appeal that is my novel,” he comments, putting his laptop away.
The two of you chat for a while until everyone else shows
up, and despite the clear anxiety settled in your stomach, Betty looks so
beautiful that you can’t bring yourself to feel anything but excited. Everyone
else is very aware of your feelings for Betty, but the blonde herself seemed to
always be oblivious to the waves of affection rolling off you any time she was
around. Licking your lips, you pat the spot beside you, smiling at her so
brightly that it could probably outdo the sun.
“Thanks Y/N. You look really nice today,” she compliments,
sliding in beside you and taking the cherry from your shake.
The comment itself nearly has you swooning, but you manage
to compose some dignity and nod. “You look beautiful. Not that you don’t
always, but you just…Pop’s lighting really makes your…eyes stand out.” Turning
from her, you blush darkly, thinking to yourself that you were so painfully
A moment passes before her eyes widen and she turns to you. “Are…are
you flirting with me?” Her words catch you off guard, so much so that there’s
no filter between your brain and mouth as you respond.
“I have been for the past year or so, but thanks for noticing,”
you grumble, playing with your straw before realizing what you said. “Oh my
god. I-I didn’t mean for it to come out like that. Y-yes, I’ve been flirting
with you. It’s…just…you never noticed before? I thought I was really obvious.”
Veronica snorts, her and Kevin sharing a look as they both
take a bite of their food. “You were, sweetie, Betty here is just completely
She scoffs, but then glances at you and leans in to kiss
your cheek. “Would you wanna come back here later this week? Just the two of
Everyone makes a gagging noise at the booth, but you ignore
them, staring into Betty’s eyes and nodding slowly. “Yeah. That sounds good.”
Betty’s smile makes your insides melt as she presses another
kiss to your cheek again. “Great. Now, when did this all start and how come I
was the only one who didn’t know about it?”
Kevin smirks, leaning against the table and starting to
ramble off as you feel yourself floating on air. They might be teasing you a
little, but you had two lipstick marks from Betty Cooper on your cheek and
nothing was going to ruin your mood.
