(click for full view) This is super late but I don’t care, I am absolutely over the moon with happiness with the confirmation of Jughead Jones’ asexuality, I’m going to go on a huge corny ramble below the cut because holy Christ Almighty does this mean a lot to me…
All hail showers, the worlds greatest source of inspiration.
It’s April 1st, and Nicky decides to go on a pranking spree
This naturally starts a prank war
What happens during this prank war is actually not important to our story, so I’ll leave that to you guys.
What is important is that Neil keeps getting pranked because he doesn’t know what April Fools is.
At the end of the day Nicky explains and he just goes “oh”.
Ya know, that kind of “oh” that really means “oooh I should do that"
Well the foxes forget all about it.
But Neil doesn’t.
See this whole post is born from the fact that we, as a fandom, seldom talk about Neil spending nearly a decade switching personalities like most people switch clothes.
Not Neil tho he’s better with personality than clothes I mean Jesus fuck kid, jorts?
What I’m getting at here is: Neil is fucking amazing at impressions.
Which the Foxes find out the next April when Neil shows up to practice in the morning with black hair, green color contacts, and a tattoo of a chess queen on his cheek.
Kevin is horrified.
The upperclassmen are delighted.
Nicky starts laughing literally every time Mini Kevin opens his mouth.
Aaron acts like he doesn’t care but he secretly records the whole thing with his phone and it’s gold.
He doesn’t show it, but this is the first thing Andrew’s found genuinely funny since he got off his meds.
Neil doesn’t break character once, no matter how many times Kevin tries to trip him. His imitiation of Kevin’s voice is perfect. He berates Andrew for his eating, criticizes everyone and everything during practice, real Kevin included, and mutters curses in French whenever something doesn’t go his way.
The foxes would’ve gotten tired of it quick if not for real Kevin acting NOTHING like himself for all of this. It’s like Mini Kevin stole his personality.
Right after afternoon practice Kevin gets a phone call from Jeremy.
Aaron uploaded the video to youtube and it got over a million views in under an hour and a half. The trojans are watching it on repeat. Jean laughed so hard he fell back from his chair and hit his head on the floor, rendering him briefly unconscious.
Kevin doesn’t tell anyone about this.
(Not that he needed to. Jean already called Renee and told her the story between fits of laughter.)
It makes the evening sports review channel news.
But by next morning it’s back to regular Neil.
And that’s the story of how Neil was invited to guest on Saturday Night Live
