prompt: bughead AU (inspired by the Betty/Jughead insta profiles) where Betty meets Jughead in New York and they start up a romance. Betty's been updating her instagram detailing their time together and back in riverdale Kevin & Veronica swoon over their pics (while also stalking Jughead's profile to learn more about him)

A/N: requested by the creative @jeemyjamz!! I had so much fun making this, even though it was proven a bit difficult. I hope you guys are happy with the results! 


“..Okay, Betty. You’ll be fine, it’s only the first job you’ll have on your resume. One that defines your work ethic, and all jobs after will reference this one, and-” Betty said, speaking to herself, as she walked into the newsroom that she was now a part of. The newsroom echoed with keyboard clicks, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee filled the room.

She felt a bit flustered watching everyone, and didn’t know where to go. “Lost?” a guy about her age asked, furrowing his eyebrows. “Yeah, how’d you know?” She asked, a nervous expression written on her face. He chuckled, Why was he laughing?,she thought.

“Your expression is giving me the impression that you were, you looked like you were going to faint.” He replied, rubbing the back of his head.

“Where are my manners? I’m Betty Cooper, it’s nice to meet you” She smiled, trying to make a good impression. Her mother’s words echoing through her head, First impressions are everything, Betty.  

“I’m Forsythe Jones, but everyone calls me Jughead” He spoke, smiling shyly. Her name finally registering in his brain, and he furrowed his eyebrows in confusion. “..Is Betty short for Elizabeth?” Jughead continued.

She nodded her head, and he cheered “We’re cubicle mates. Well, more like cubicle neighbors, but it’s the same principle.”

“You seem so excited, why’s that?” Betty questioned, walking with Jughead towards their corridor. She watched as his lips formed into a nervous smile, as he sat down in his swivel chair.  

“Everyone in this office sorta sucks, they’re all worn out, but I have a good feeling about you Cooper.” He said doing finger guns, swirling back towards his laptop.

Betty knew that her job here was never going to be boring, now that she knew Jughead.


A couple of weeks have passed, and Betty and Jughead were practically attached by the hip. Their jobs were so similar they had to work with each other all of the time, they spent lunch breaks, and weekends together. Neither of them minded because just as Jughead stated, Everyone in that office did suck, or at least according to Betty. Lately, things had been weird between them because they had kissed, and nobody wanted to address it.

It was a cool, spring night in NYC, and Betty was up early facetiming her two best friends who still live in her hometown.  Their social medias were filled with candid pictures of each other, so naturally Betty’s new romance is the item of conversation,.

“…And then he just kissed you? But did you like it?? That’s the real question, B” her best friend Veronica questioned, raising her eyebrows.

The doorbell rung, but who could it be this late at night? She looked through the small peephole in her front door, and started freaking out. “Guys, it’s Juggie, what should I do?” She whispered, running towards the laptop.

“Make yourself hot!” the duo in the screen whispered back, “Just leave us here, we won’t do anything!”,Kevin whispered. Betty threw on some lipgloss, shaking out her hair, putting on cuter pajamas. The doorbell rang again, and she opened the door trying to look as effortless as possible.

“It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.” Jughead smirked, quoting Romeo and Juliet, a movie that they’ve watched on several occasions.

“Ay me!” Betty said, continuing their Shakespearian banter, tucking a piece of hair behind her ear. Jughead walked into her apartment, staring at her with a loving gaze. Betty began to look increasingly frustrated, Jughead thought it was cute, but he was concerned.

“What’s the matter, Bets?” Jughead asked, looking at the blonde who was ready to explode.

Betty exhaled before yelling at Jughead,“You’re the matter, Jug! We haven’t talked after that kiss, and I was convinced that you didn’t like me back. But you keep staring at me like that, and I can’t-”

Jughead interrupted Betty in the middle of her soliloquy, making Betty sigh in frustration. “What?” She replied, with an annoyed expression.

Jughead grabbed the sides of her face, kissing her passionately. Everything fell silent, and the two were there for a minute or so, finally separating with unshakeable smiles on their faces.

“Betty, I like you, only you. I came over here because I realized how much of a dick I was being, and I was hoping you would forgive me. I needed to figure out how I felt. Would you, Elizabeth Cooper, do me the honor of being my girlfriend?” Jughead asked nervously, looking down at the ground.

“Yes!” Betty replied, engulfing Jughead in an embrace.

Kevin and Veronica were cheering on their side of the screen, Betty completely forgetting they were there. “Damn Betty!” Kevin cheered, earning a high five from Veronica.

Betty facepalmed watching her boyfriend walk over to the screen, “Are these the famous Kevin and Veronica?” He questioned, “How’d you know?” Veronica retorted.

“I might have talked his ear off about you guys, and shown him about a million photos.” Betty confessed, laughing.

“We like this one” The duo in the the laptop chimed, smiles on their faces.

“I like him too” Betty said, earning a smile from Jughead.

Look. Yes markhyuck always tease each other, yes donghyuck literally lives for roasting mark’s ass and mark looks like he just wanna punch donghyuck in the face but! They also have those soft moments when they cuddle on couch and watch tv, when they caress each other’s hair while cuddling in bed before falling asleep, when they make little surprises to each other. They are like tom and jerry but they also have their romeo and juliet like moments too. They do have those moments don’t argue me about it i swear to god.

So are we going to talk about how the Romeo&Juliet parallel is going to happen probably until the end of the season?!

Mon-el wanted to run away together!! My heart is soaring!

and Mon-el is going to get his legion ring for flight!

We have more love moments to look forward too, and Kara finally saying I LOVE YOU

THE REST OF THE SEASON IS GOING TO BE AMAZING

HUGS TO THE KARAMEL FAM AS WE STRUGGLE THROUGH THE HIATUS

black male character as the white lead’s love interest: has to be 100% perfect at all times, can never show any sign of anger, even if he does this he is still somehow deemed toxic and hated by the majority of fandom or they “just don’t see any chemistry”

white male character as the white lead’s love interest: literally no matter how terribly he is written he is loved “omg did you see how his eyes did that thing where they looked into her eyes?”

otp: we’re both white

otp: romeo and juliet but we’ll live and the minority characters won’t

otp: star-crossed lovers like never before even though we’re both straight, white, heterosexual and literally represented in every tv show to ever exist
