Magic || Jughead Jones
Request from anon: Okay so ever since your Supernatural cross-over I’ve been a bit obsessed with the idea of the ‘supernatural’ in Riverdale. I really want to see a ‘reader’ with magical powers, kind of like a 'Sabrina’ type character and she’s friends with the group and subtly tries to use her magic to help them out. I’m thinking football games she uses it to help Archie with a throw or Ronnie is about to fall of the top of the pyramid but she stops it. It could be a jughead x reader and eventually he notices??
A/N: This was super fun to write! Hope you like it!

You always knew you were different. Ever since you were six and literally levitated the cookie jar your mom had placed on a high shelf directly towards you, you knew you were unique. You never told anyone. You had wanted to tell your parents but then you had remembered a scary movie you had watched (when your parents weren’t looking) about a girl who was tortured because people found out she had “powers.” What if your parents sent you away? What if your friends told their parents or teachers who then called someone that would hurt you? It wasn’t worth the risk. So you kept it quiet. You only practiced your telekinesis when you were home alone, always making sure to lock your bedroom door. And you never, ever used it in public.
One day changed that.
It was the championship game between Riverdale and some other town whose name you couldn’t remember for the life of you. You weren’t there for the game, not really. You were there to see Betty and Veronica and the cheer squad in action. They had begged you to come, talking excitedly about how they had a new routine and how they couldn’t wait for you to see it. So there you were, under the bleachers with your boyfriend Jughead in the freezing cold waiting until halftime to see your friends cheer.
“How long till halftime?” Jughead asked from next to you.
You looked at the clock and sighed.
“Fifteen seconds.” you said.
Jughead leaned against the metal of the bleachers.
“After Betty and Veronica’s cheer can we please go get some Pop’s?”
“Yeah, Juggie, of course.” you said.
The referee blew the whistle signaling the end of the second quarter. The cheerleaders almost instantly entered the field just as the football players left and you and Jughead stepped out from under the bleachers to watch the halftime show.
“Go Ronnie! Go Betty!” you cheered.
The girls waved to you before they got into position with the other cheerleaders. The music began to play and the girls began to do their number, jumping and dancing around. They began to get in formation for a pyramid, Veronica getting in position to go on top. The girls lifted her with ease and Veronica smiled as she absolutely aced her movements.
However, when the girls got ready to bring the Lodge girl down, one of them slipped on the mud, making Veronica lose her balance. She wobbled like crazy, trying to keep her balance and failing miserably. The crowd gasped and some even covered their eyes as they watched Veronica stumble. You knew you had to do something before your friend fell and broke her neck.
Without another second to lose, you concentrated on your friend, making her stop her wobbling instantly.
“What the—” Jughead began.
He looked around and realized he was the only one who saw something wrong with Veronica’s position. She looked too steady at that angle. He looked over at you to see your brows furrowed in concentration as you watched Veronica.
“Y/N?” he asked.
You weren’t listening. You concentrated as hard as you could on the surprised and slightly panicked Lodge girl as she slowly but surely began to regain her balance on top of the pyramid. You began to feel lightheaded and you began to feel blood start to trickle out of your nose and you were briefly reminded of what happened all those years ago that made you swear not to push your powers to their limits again. With a quick movement of your head, Veronica was directly on top of the pyramid again and you stopped your concentration, letting out a heavy sigh. Everyone began clapping at what they thought was Veronica’s miracle recovery and you felt yourself getting more and more dizzy. You began to fall back but Jughead was quick on his feet and caught you, holding you steady.
“Y/N!” he exclaimed worriedly.
You were barely awake, your head lolling to the side. Jughead led you back under the bleachers, sitting you against the cool metal.
“I’m fine, Juggie.” you mumbled.
Jughead shook his head as he pulled a tissue from his pocket, cleaning up the blood that had fallen from your nose.
“You call this fine, Y/N? God, what happened out there?” he asked.
You shook your head weakly.
“Nothing. I just got dizzy, that’s all.” you lied as you closed your eyes, trying to get some of your strength back.
“Yeah, because watching your friend nearly fall off a cheerleading pyramid makes you dizzy,” he said sarcastically, a tinge of worry still in his voice.
The two of you were silent as he finished cleaning up the blood from your nose.
“I saw you, Y/N,” Jughead said softly.
You opened your eyes and looked up at your boyfriend.
“I saw you stop Veronica from falling,” he continued.
You looked down, internally panicking.
He knew. He knew. You were going to end up just like that girl from the movie.
“H-How long?” he asked. “How long have you been able to do… this?”
“I-Since I was six.” you said.
“Does anyone else know?” he asked.
You shook your head.
“No,” you said quietly.
You looked up at the beanie-clad teen again.
“Please don’t tell anyone,” you pleaded, tears welling up in your eyes. “I don’t want to be sent away to some science facility where they torture me and force me to—”
“Hey, hey, hey, shh, calm down,” Jughead reassured, cupping your cheeks with his palms. “Who’s sending you away?”
He wiped a fallen tear away from your cheek with his thumb and smiled softly.
“I’m not telling anyone, okay? No one’s going to send you away. They’d have to get through me first.” he said.
You let out a watery chuckle.
“But Juggie, that would be easy.” you joked.
“Ouch,” Jughead said in mock offense. “That hurt,”
You giggled again, your tears starting to dry up.
“But seriously,” the raven-haired teen said. “No one’s gonna hurt you. I won’t let them. Just know that. Okay?”
