Worlds Enough and Time (Riverdale/Rogue One AU)
Elizabeth Cooper—ruthless, obsessive Rebel agent with too much blood on her hands—orchestrates the escape of a prisoner from the brutal SSH work camp, where the Empire sends dissidents and criminals once their luck finally runs out.
Twenty years in SSH is a death sentence Jughead had resigned himself to. Whether a fight in the yard or killed by guards, he knew sooner or later he would meet a quick, violent end to a life that didn’t amount to anything. Instead, one day the back blows off a transport and he’s out.
But out isn’t the same as free. As Jughead should have guessed, all he’s done is trade one set of jailers for another. Help always comes at a price. The Alliance needs an in with the Serpents, an extremist cell led by the notorious FP Jones and dedicated to fighting the Empire by any means necessary regardless of the collateral damage left in their wake.
Whatever caused father and son to part ways, Jughead should at least be able to get Captain Cooper through the door without being shot.
One introduction and he can return to his life of drifting through the galaxy, unmoored, in the day-to-day battle for survival. Because what are causes like the rebellion to him, when all belief and trust have ever brought him is pain?
But freedom is a lot simpler to understand when you’re locked behind bars and some people carry their prisons with them wherever they go. Will Jughead and Betty be able to put aside their differences and work together to stop a terrible new weapon with the power to tear apart worlds?
