okay so theres an episode of whats new scooby doo where the gang goes home on valentines day, and i guess the studio really wanted to avoid the implication that daphne and fred were sleeping together because daphne and velma live together and fred lives with shaggy and scooby
but that attempt at avoiding anything risque backfired spectacularly because now it just seems like daphne and velma are a comfortably domestic couple and fred is trying to learn how to live with his boyfriends over excitable and really hungry great dane
Hear me out: Hogwarts Bughead finding the marauder’s map. Ravenclaw Jughead cracking the way to open it “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” and sharing it only with Hufflepuff Betty. Imagine them using it to sneak around the castle, into each other’s dorms, into unused classrooms. Imagine them using it to figure out Gryffindor Jason Blossom’s murder and sneaking back into the library after curfew to continue investigating. Imagine them using it to meet at midnight in each other’s common room to talk and have sweet little kisses, to talk about Polly and Jughead’s father and all their worries. Imagine them skipping class together and the teacher never finding out how they do it or where they go.
Also, imagine the marauder’s taking a liking to them - “Mr. Prongs would like to inform Mr. Jughead Jones that his girlfriend is even prettier than him” “Mr. Wormtail kindly offers his regards to the Mr. Jones and Miss Cooper in their trouble making” “Mr. Padfoot would like Miss Cooper to know that she is by far the sneakiest Hufflepuff he ever had the pleasure to encounter” “Mr. Moony wishes Mr. Jones the best of luck with his noble pursuit of wooing Miss Cooper” And Betty and Jughead sitting around laughing to themselves about their map, thinking about who the marauders were, what they looked like, where were they now?
Or the Marauders giving them their own nicknames: “Mr. Prongs would like to formally inform a Mr. Jones and a Miss Cooper that their new names are now Mr. Beanhead and Miss. Milkshake” Or Betty and Jughead coming up with their own - Miss Betts and Mr. Juggie. Less creative, but what they call one another.
I don’t know, I just think the marauders would have adored the new scooby duo.
