Summary: He’s someone you found very hard to befriend with at first, ever since he stepped foot into the classroom as a new student. But the cold shoulder and intense glares that were given to you countless of times from Yoongi were suddenly turned into something more caring and loving throughout the years. But would you still stay with him if he’s full of secrets, secrets that you would never guess that he would keep from you? Even if it was him being a member in the most known and most wanted gang in Seoul, whereas you were just a college student whose name was on the list?
i want a how i met your mother to be about a pansexual ted mosby and the running joke is that barney’s offended ted doesn’t find him attractive
i want a legally blonde to be about a lipstick lesbian who goes to law school to get her girlfriend back
i want a that ‘70s show where jackie is bisexual and between dating kelso and hyde she brings her ugly ass girlfriends with her to hang out with the gang (because there’s no way she can have a woman in her life prettier than herself)
i want a 13 going on 30 where jenna rink wakes up to be 30 years old and his name is michael rink and he still falls in love with matty from the house next door
i want a parks & recreation where ann perkins is asexual but still becomes pregnant via artificial insemination because ann is perfect and would be the best mother in the history of ever
being lgbt+ doesn’t have to be the focal point of a movie or show
like i understand it’s still a pretty bold move in media but like i’m just getting sick of all of the representation being the ultra dramatic main premise of it all
there are so many lgbt+ dramas. just give me my sitcom.

HOW TO ROLEPLAY GANGS AND EX OR CURRENT GANG MEMBERS
this guide will teach you the ins and outs of realistic gangs, roleplaying gang members, and how all of that works. almost all gang roleplays i’ve seen are so inaccurate, glamorized and romanticized. movies are not realistic. even if it isn’t a gang rp - a gang related character could be interesting in any sort of character development plot. so here we go –
Honestly, he was kind of scared when this big, burly guy, covering in tattoos and piercings approached them on the street
The guy walked straight up to MC, she didn’t bat an eye, and Yoosung instinctively stepped between them, but MC greeted the big guy with a smile
It turned out he was a friend of hers from when she was in a gang
He’s like a big brother to her
The guy gives Yoosung a look up and down, then laughs and slaps him on the back, saying that she always had a taste for the cute ones
She rolls her eyes, says it was good to see him, and she and Yoosung go back to their date
Later, Yoosung asks about her gang days and she just tells him about the people, not wanting to talk about the fighting
After they’re married, a gang member breaks into the vet office while it’s just Yoosung and MC in the clinic alone, and tries to threaten them into patching him up, but MC just mentions her gang name, and he runs for it
Yoosung is intimidated, but she assures him that she doesn’t fight anymore, she just had a lot of anger she had to get out when she was younger
Her immediate reaction is actually curiosity of which of them would win in a fight
She doesn’t voice this
She only found out because MC had a few scars left over from those days
It started with, “how did you get that scar on your arm?” “Oh this? I got in a gang fight. Some idiot came at me with a crow bar, the sharp edge grazed me, and I beat him up.”
So one day, when a rowdy customer grabs one of their waitress’ ass, before Jaehee can even move, MC is on him, full “yankee” showing
She grabs him by the hair, bangs his head against the table once, then points to the waitress he grabbed, “Apologize to her.”
He tries to get out of this, throw a punch, something, but MC dodges, casually trips him, and then stands over him threateningly
“I said apologize.”
He does, runs like hell, and Jaehee is a little frightened
However, curiosity overtakes her, and she asks MC to spar with her, so they pay for a little time at a dojo and go a couple of rounds, fairly evenly matched, although MC has more first hand experience on her side and ultimately wins
Jaehee just loves her more
It came up because she had a tattoo on the back of her right hip in the shape of a butterfly
She awkwardly explained that she used to be the leader of an all female gang
Back then, her hair was cut short and she dressed very differently
Zen immediately wants to see pictures
It doesn’t take her long to fish out the photo album and show him some of the pictures a gang member of hers took
Sure enough, she had short hair, in most pictures she’s dressed in pants, a crop top, and a long coat
It’s funny, because Zen finds one set of photos where he realizes his biker gang was hanging out with her gang
Then he finds a picture of the two of them together, with his arm around her while she looks grumpy
They’re kind of shocked and surprised that they actually met each other before, but he makes a half-joke about how they must be meant to be
On the inside, he’s squealing with joy
MC figured it’d be better for him to hear it from her than the press, if anyone managed to fish up her past
So she told Jumin the basics - she was in an all-girl gang in high school, got into a lot of fights, smoked, and probably stole a few things for both fun and necessity
She has a few piercings because of her fashion sense in those days
Jumin goes quiet for a long time after she tells him this, but MC can see he’s just thinking and processing
He ends up asking to see photos, because he tried to imagine her as a delinquent, but couldn’t
This is mostly because she usually dresses in sweaters and skirts, and generally girly, cutesy ways
He’s surprised when she pulls out a picture of herself with short hair, dyed black, her nose and the cartilage of her ears pierced, and scowling at the camera with a lit cigarette in her hand
Jumin stares at the picture for a long time before he says anything else
Mostly, Jumin just asks what her life was like, if she kept anything from those days, and if she keeps in contact with her… less reputable companions from those days
MC makes it clear she left that life a long time ago
But she does say that, if he’s ever interested, she does have some clothes left from those days that she can dress up in for him
Jumin seriously considers her offer, but doesn’t openly respond to it
When he read the police reports about her, he couldn’t stop laughing
All the ridiculous ways she’d escaped being caught by the police were hilarious
One time, she jumped the fence into a yard with a rabid dog and only barely escaped because she hopped across the line of lawn ornaments while the police were trying to calm the dog
Another time, she pretended to be an employee at a perfume store and “accidentally” sprayed perfume in the eyes of the one cop that caught on
Her most famous escape was preforming an epic stunt where she stole a bicycle and jumped a broken bridge the cops couldn’t cross on foot
Saeyoung then manages to get video feed of each of these, makes it into a compilation video that he posts on the internet labeled “the craziest escapes from the police you’ve ever seen”
MC is furious and embarrassed when she finds out
However, Saeyoung also wiped her juvenile records so she’s squeaky clean
Some guys tried to mug them, but MC threw a few punches without hesitation, and they scurried like rats
V was so impressed he asked where she’d learned to fight
MC just said, “oh, you know, the streets. My high school friends were rowdy. Things happen.”
He’s concerned about her young life, but he doesn’t pry
Lets just say she has some questionable tattoos that, just like him, she’s embarrassed of
He knows about her past, knows about the fights she used to get into, knows she was arrested for assault but let out when the guy didn’t want to file charges
Saeran actually kind of likes that she’s so hardened and used to blood and conflict that she barely flinches when it’s right in front of her
However, he didn’t expect her bright and friendly personality
It’s her sense of loyalty to her peers and her interest in their wellbeing that makes him love her
Because MC doesn’t question why or how he might’ve gotten hurt, she just helps him patch himself up and asks if she needs to beat someone up
or, why you should read the yugioh manga if you haven’t or, Yami has No Fucking Chill
i was looking thru the yugioh manga and decided to make a list of all the crazy shit Yami does in the first seven volumes.
this one is pretty tame, but he makes a
guy play a game where they stab a knife thru money while it lays on
their hand. if they stab to hard they’ll stab their hand. he then
proceeds to make the man hallucinate.
when he wins a game against a tv
director (by cheating, just saying) Yami makes it so he’ll see in
he makes it so a fellow student’s
heartbeat is so loud it’s unbearable
you know how everyone jokes that Yami
sets a man on fire? that’s not a joke. he sets a guy on fire, via
vodka and cigarette.
he plays a game with a fellow student
where they play air hockey on a grill top with a chunk of ice that
has an explosive substance in the middle. needless to say, Yami blows
up his fellow student.
he poisons a man with his own pet
scorpion… over a pair of sneakers.
remember in Duel Monsters when Pegasus
trapped Kaiba’s soul in a card? Yami did that first. only he made it
so Kaiba was being mercilessly maimed by the monsters in the cards.
it was only temporary, and an illusion, but still.
he electrocutes like five guys all at
OKAY SO THIS ISN’T A FUCKED UP THING
YAMI DID but when Yami plays Capsule Monsters with Mokuba for the
first time, Mokuba says that if Yami loses he’s going to cut off one
of Yami’s fingers. something else you miss out on from not reading
the manga is Mokuba Kaiba being an evil gremlin and just as much of
an asshole as his brother. also Mokuba apparently just casually
carries a switchblade around, nbd.
when Mokuba loses, Yami traps him in a
Capsule Monster capsule (that’s an illusion but still)
he also poisons Mokuba. like, Mokuba
was being an asshole and totally deserved it, and it wasn’t entirely
Yami’s fault, but there’s no way Yami didn’t slightly influence the
turnout of this situation.
after their initial duel, he causes
Kaiba to go into a vegetative state. it’s for Kaiba’s own good, but
still, he doesn’t actually come out of comatose for several chapters.
When a kid challenges him to a game
called Dragon Cards, where there is the possibility of having your
soul imprisoned in a jar, Yami wins and the kid loses his soul we can
only assume permanently (they made it so in the anime it was just the
“evil” of his soul being imprisoned. in the manga… rip that
kid, I guess.).
again this isn’t something Yami did,
but you’ve probably heard about the infamous Yo-Yo Gang chapter.
well, it’s real, and in that chapter, the gang almost hang Yuugi by
the Millennium Puzzle. Yami then proceeds to send them all to the
hospital by causing a roof to cave in beneath them. you aim yo-yos at
the ground, you assholes.
after that, Yami finally finds most of
his chill and stops mentally torturing people, at least for the most
part. but seriously, you’re missing out on all this if you don’t read
the manga, it’s a wild ride.
ok but just how rich is yondu though? im just thinking about the first gotg when he put a huge bounty on peter like its no problem at all. and he also owns a massive carrier ship with like at least a dozen of smaller fighter ships including the milano and lots and lots of crews. the operating cost must be crazy expensive. and at the end when the ravagers were helping out to defeat ronan they must’ve lost at least half their fleet but they don’t seem to mind that much? i mean those ships cant be cheap right? i mean even ayesha was stressing out when she lost her fleet in gotg2. how much money do they make exactly omg
and then in gotg2 it turns out there are 99 other ravager factions like yondu’s. so like, there’s 100 crazy loaded pirate gangs just hanging around in space. thats insane
Hey guys! I just wanted to put a disclaimer out here on this story, it is very angsty and deals with mature subject matter, it could possibly be a trigger warning. Thankyou so much!
It all started simple enough, it wasn’t supposed to end up like this. Hanging out with the gang, that was it. But then there was Betty Cooper
Kind, selfless, beautiful Betty Cooper who would rather die than see any living thing being tormented in any way. He should’ve noticed it, seen it in her eyes, the way her shoulders drew up and her breathing quickened. She was ready for a fight. And a fight she was going to get.
They had been eating, that’s all, just minding their own business, going over school work and laughing with their friends when all of a sudden the crash of a plate hitting the ground echoed through the barely full diner. Everyone’s eyes were drawn to Dilton Doiley now sitting on the ground covered in his own food, bleeding from his arm. He wasn’t alone. Surrounding him were the biggest high schoolers Jughead had ever seen, tattooed and muscled their faces so mean and rough, it was scary to even look. And then they kicked the poor boy laying on the ground.
They kicked Dilton so hard, he coughed himself into throwing up. Betty was up in a second flat, he never even had the chance to touch her, grab her arm. Keep her stuck in that seat. He would’ve done anything to keep her there.
“Stop! What’s wrong with you?! What are you doing?!” She shouted hysterically, moving to help Dilton but was quickly stopped by one of the bunch.
“Back off bitch, this isn’t your fight.” It was a group of six all equally staring Betty down with such venom Jughead thought me might throw up alongside Dilton. He saw her hands go up to her ponytail, tightening it.
“It’s my fight now, this is my town, my diner, my friends.” She stood tall , not a shake to her body. Suddenly without any warning she was slapped across the face, completely knocking her to the ground. “I said mind your own business bitch.” The tallest one spoke spitting on the ground near Betty’s face.
He had hopped over the booth in a second flat, Archie and Kevin following close behind
As soon as he reached for the monster who had slapped Betty he was being pulled down by another two of the gang. Pinning him to the ground and using the heel of his boot, the one to his left kicked him hard in the cheek, splitting his lip. He vaguely heard the screams of Veronica and Cheryl and saw Archie and Kevin being held back.
“This your girlfriend?” The tallest one said shoving Betty’s face into the ground by jugheads head keeping his foot on her head, he couldn’t help but think that this asshole was getting dirt in her hair. He tried to catch her eyes, tried to tell her it was gonna be okay, he was here, they were gonna get out of this but he couldn’t find her eyes, he could only make out the light pink cardigan, they weren’t letting him move, suddenly he heard her yelp and the sound of skin hitting skin caused him to push up in the force holding him back. He caught a glimpse of the scene.
The man had Betty’s shirt almost all the way over her head and had punched her directly in her side. “You’ve gotta learn” he was saying, “you can come with us, pretty young thing like you, we’ve got space in our trailer, we could make good use of you.” The rest of the group laughed and jughead growled
“Oh your boyfriend looks jealous, why don’t we let him see a little more, hell who knows it might be the last time he gets to see this tight little body.” The man was trying to unbutton her jeans but she was wiggling too much. He gripped her face so tight, Jughead was sure he was gonna leave bruises “stop fucking around”
She looked the man dead in the eye and spit right in his face “fuck you.” He couldn’t help the swell of pride in his chest, she wasn’t going down without a fight. The mans face contorted into something Jughead had never seen before, he was so angry he was physically red
“You dumb..” his hands were around her neck squeezing and jughead thrashed, pushing against the men holding, “Betty! Get the hell off of her!” He was crying now he could see her choking.
It was all over before it began, the sound of police cars blared through the windows and he was released, watching Betty slip to the ground he breathed a sigh of relief, the gang tried to run but as soon as they made it to the door, pops was there, rifle in his hands and cellphone held up. The cops rammed through the door taking down each and everyone of the monsters. He looked up to see a flash of black and red fly past him.
“Betty! Somebody help! Please” Veronica was crying, thick streaks of black mascara running down her face and Cheryl was on her cellphone with who he presumed was a lawyer based on her declaration of “you’ll be representing Betty Cooper and I want you hereNOW!”
He looked up and saw Archie, holding his arm and helping a shaking Kevin up.
Suddenly snapping out of his daze he got up running to where Betty was laying. Shoving both Cheryl and Veronica out of the way he dropped to his knees. Betty’s eyes were open, tears streaming out, her eye completely swollen and the harsh red fingerprints sticking out on her smooth skin, she had her fingers on her throat,
“I can’t Breathe” she choked out her voice raspy and weak.
Jughead was crying now, she should never look this, ever. but here she was , broken and hurt. And he couldn’t stop it, he didn’t do anything to help her, he couldn’t.
She was reaching for him
“My side juggie, its…I can’t..” his hands instantly went to the lift her t shirt, her ribs were bruised beyond belief and that brought on a fresh round of tears. Suddenly she was being ushered away by a group of emts a man gently lifting her onto a stretcher. Veronica looked at Jughead, “I’m gonna go to the hospital with her okay, you stay here and answer the questions they have, but if I don’t see you by Betty’s side in an hour, I’ll lose it.”
Archie gripped his shoulder
“This was not your fault man, they were going to kill Dilton, Betty did what she does best, help people. you couldn’t have stopped it. You know that”
Shaking his head he went over to the officer to describe the attack, apparently these men have been on a rampage, they had put six students in critical care, ones still fighting for his life. They were going away for a long time.
And Betty did that.
She stuck up to those monsters and she got them put away. But how could he face her? He looked her in the eyes as they beat her. He couldn’t do anything, just watch. The voice of Kevin Keller broke him out of his thoughts.
“She needs you, I know you’re blaming yourself but Betty would kill you if she knew you were doing that, you jumped in, you put yourself at risk for her, she knows that, she’s probably feeling just as guilty as you are, so go to her. Now. before she overthinks herself into a coma.” Sheriff Keller came and quickly took his son away. He was a good dad.
Shit, Betty’s parents were away on a week long cruise for a journalism retreat. Betty literally was on her own.
Hopping into Archie’s car, he smiled weakly at his best friend, he was waiting for him, he knew he would come to his senses, turning the key Archie turned to Jughead , a huge smile on his face
“Alright jug, lets go get you your girl.”
He rolled his eyes. Alright then, let’s go get the girl.
Pulling into the hospital parking lot, Jughead ran out of the car, sliding into the waiting room, “Betty Cooper” he yelled to the general public
“I need to see Betty cooper.” Suddenly a nurse in light blue scrubs approached him “Betty Cooper is in recovery, from her chart I can see she’s fine , no internal bleeding. Just some fractured ribs and a whole lot of bruising. Unfortunately only family can see her right now, ms.lodge is the exception.”
Jughead shook his head
“No. no I have to see her, her family is all away, I’m what she has right now. I’m … I’m her boyfriend.”
The nurse looked at the panicked boy and felt herself smile, he clearly cared about the beautiful blonde. She could bend the rules just once.
“First door on your right.”
He started to run before turning back quickly “Thankyou, Thankyou so much”
Standing outside the door, he took a deep breathe, okay he was ready. Slamming open the door he felt like all the wind had been knocked out of him.
She looked so small in the huge white hospital bed, tubes sticking out of her arms, the purple Bruises marring her perfect face. He wanted to cry, but he wouldn’t she needed him to be strong.
“Well I’m going to get pudding, vanilla or chocolate b?” Veronica said gathering her wallet.
Betty’s eyes never left jugheads “chocolate” she smiled, she knew that was his favorite.
Eyeing Jughead with cautious eyes, Veronica walked out the door. As soon as the handles clicked shut he was by her side
“I’m sorry” they both said at the same time.
It was almost comical how similar their faces were in that moment.
“For what” they both said again almost synchronized.
Jughead finally took her hand cautious of the tubes “I let them do this to you, I couldn’t get away I tried so hard, I watched everything they did, everything they tried to do. I couldn’t even protect you.” She shook her head quickly,
“This is my fault I should have left it alone, I saw how they were acting, but.. they were gonna kill him. He’s so small, he couldn’t take much more” she choked out through watery eyes “and then you jumped in and they hit you. That’s my fault” her fingers went to touch his bloody lip. But he grabbed her hand pressing it into his chest, right over his heart.
“I would go through this a hundred times over to spare even one of those bruises on your face.”
She sniffled, smiling at him
“Were quite the pair aren’t we?”
He laughed softly, rubbing the soft skin of her cheek, careful of any bruises.
“I’m not letting you out of my sight now, I hope you know that.” Betty nodded
“I don’t wanna be anywhere but with you.” She whispered
“Good, because I’m not going anywhere.” He dropped his forehead to hers and closed his eyes.
Summary: Jughead reflects on why the road trip with Archie meant so much to him; and when his deep, dark secret is exposed, he doesn’t know what to do.
Frankly, Jughead knew, deep inside him somewhere (even though it was probably buried so deep, it would have to be excavated), that Archie didn’t mean it. The redhead didn’t mean to leave his best friend waiting for three hours at the spot they’d meant to have met, instead opting to text him with five words- “Sorry Jug, can’t make it.”
To others, it seemed like such a small thing to stop talking about- one cancelled road trip, but to Jughead, it was going to mark a pivotal moment.
The moment when he’d tell his best friend, the one he can trust with everything, that no, Jughead currently didn’t have a home- only an excuse of one. He’d been debating whether to tell Archie, let alone his friends, for weeks, but had only now decided to accept that his living situation was just shitty and he needed help.
But of course, Archie didn’t show up, which just reiterated the doubt that had always lingered at the back of Jughead’s mind- what Archie was to him, he wasn’t to Archie.
What was so incredibly frustrating was that now, Jughead couldn’t tell anyone else. Even if he’d wanted to, when Archie drifted away, so did Betty, who was devoted to him. Who did he have to turn to now?
As he sat in the lunchroom if Riverdale High, blasting ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ through his earphones, his shoulders slumped.
Maybe he was talking to Archie, and consequently Betty, now, their friendship wasn’t what it used to be before.
And when Jughead found out later that Archie ditched their road trip so that he could ‘do the do’ with that pedophilic teacher on July 4th, Jughead couldn’t help but feel resentment boil inside him.
This is what their years spent hanging together in treehouses and sneaking behind their parent’s backs meant to him?
Therefore, Jughead couldn’t bring himself to admit that now, with the drive-on closing, he really might have no one to turn to.
Ignoring the strange sensation in his chest-sadness, if he wasn’t mistaken, he increased the volume of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, tuning out the din of the lunchroom, choosing instead, to focus on the titillating harmonies as his fingers tapped on his keyboard.
There were times, times like these, when Jughead truly hated Cheryl Blossom. No, despised her, and what she embodied- the rich bitch who could definitely not be trusted.
Yes, bad things had happened to her. Yes, her twin brother had been murdered. Yes, the murderer was still, in all likeliness, galavanting around Riverdale, and yes, all she could do was wait.
That still gave her no excuse to do what she was currently doing.
Phone in hand, evidence of what she was letting the rest of the biology class know -he didn’t know how Prof. Phylum could deal with her at all- that Jughead was hiding a deep, dark secret.
“We have a Serpent in our midst.” She said, turning around and shoving her phone in Jughead’s face. There it was. A picture of Jughead and his dad talking, that terrible day when he’d moved out of the driveway and into his father’s despicable house.
“And if those of you haven’t realised from this picture, it’s Jughead Jones, Riverdale’s resident writer.” With a smirk, Cheryl flipped her hair to one side and sat down.
Jughead put his head in his hands. If Betty, Veronica, and Archie weren’t there, then Jughead’s wouldn’t really have cared.
But they were, they were there, currently looking at Jughead with betrayal, hurt and disbelief on their faces.
Jughead put his head in his hands.
“Alright, class, enough.” Phylum said, only after regarding Jughead with disdain. “Back to dissection. The stomach…”
Jughead tuned out. What was once comfortable silence turned unconformable. He was ashamed, yes, and would give up nearly anything on the Earth’s surface not to be affiliated with his father, but right now, what choice did he have? His secret was out in the open, and there was nowhere for Jughead to run.
The Serpents… So what if the school found out? It was his friends that he was worried about.
He dared not to turn around and look at Archie’s expression, or Betty’s. He didn’t even bother thinking about Cheryl’s satisfied smirk.
Shit. They were going to find out that he had been homeless soon enough. They were going to raise questions about Jellybean, his mom, his entire life…. They were going to realise why’d he’d been so worked up about the Drive In shutting down.
Jughead was an outsider. Even though he pretended to be fine with it, he wasn’t.
After the pep rally, when he’d made up with Archie, he’d experienced a taste of something he’d been longing for- contentment.
Being homeless- those months were encompassed with loneliness- but hanging out with the gang at Pop’s- that was his ambrosia.
Now it was probably all gone.
When the bell rung, he didn’t bother waiting for his friends and made his way straight to the door, not making eye contact with anyone. Until Cheryl stood in front of him- hands on her hips, her ruby red lips angled upwards.
Neither said anything, but Jughead looked up and gave her the fiercest, deepest and most hatred-filled glare he could muster, gaining some satisfaction when the cheerleader shrunk back ever so slightly.
Ignoring her, he walked out the door into the hallway, paying no heed to the calls of Betty, Archie and Veronica.
It was like those cliché high school scenes- everyone turning towards him, whispers of serpents and secrets exchanged between them, hasty glares.
Honestly, he didn’t know what he was trying to achieve, running away from the blonde, redhead and brunette chasing after him. They were going to corner him eventually. When he realised this, he abruptly turned.
They almost crashed into him, taken aback. Betty looked at him. “Let’s take this somewhere else.”
She turned around, and Jughead followed.
“Juggie, what’s going on?” Betty asked, taking Jughead by surprise when he saw concern on her face.
“We want to hear it from you, not Cheryl.” Archie added.
All four of them sat at Pop’s, Biology having been the last period that day, and they’d conveniently forced Jughead into a corner booth, so he couldn’t boot.
Jughead sighed. What’s there to lose?
And so, he poured his heart out. He told them how his father had joined the notorious gang earlier that year, and how his mother had left a week later, unable to resolve her conflict with his dad, taking his dear Jellybean with her.
He talked about how he’d wanted nothing to do with his dad, even though he had no other choice. He spoke about the things he’d seen from his limited proximity to the gang- theft, assault, looting, pillaging, and that was just what he knew.
He told them how he’d stayed on his dad’s side at first, after being led to believe that this was the only option to get them out of the debt their parents were falling into. When Fred Andrews fired his dad, Jughead had naively believed that his dad could do only good.
His hatred began when he’d overheard the Serpents talking- and found out that his father had been feeding him pure lies.
So then, he’d moved out. He had discovered the Drive In- perfect for a temporary shelter. He’d even got a job there, which made it all the more suitable.
At some point, his father had come there and tried to reconcile- and Jughead had accepted. Now, whenever they encountered each other, Jughead tried to forget all the terrible things his father had done.
Jughead spoke about how devastated he’d been when the Drive In shut down. He’d said that it was almost his home- if only they’d known how literal he had been.
Those Twilight months were the lonely ones, he said, without even the company of his little sister to help pacify him. Now all contact he had to Jellybean was through a payphone near Twilight.
After Twilight shut down, Jughead had tried to find accommodation somewhere, but to no avail. Last week, he’d moved back into his father’s hovel, trying to spend as less time there are possible. His father tended to get drunk late in the night, and though nothing had been inflicted upon Jughead yet, he was not eager to stay.
But right now, he wasn’t spoilt for choices.
He ended his explanation with an “I’m sorry.” And waited.
Betty, sitting near him, looked at him, tears in her eyes and just hugged him.
Veronica, sitting across from him, grabbed his hand, and Archie said, “Jughead…”
Honestly, Jughead expected them to be angry.
“Why didn’t you tell us?” Betty asked, hand on his shoulder.
“I don’t know. You guys were busy…”
“Bullshit.” Betty’s eyes narrowed. “Jughead, you’ve been through so much already, and you clearly needed help. We would’ve done everything we could! Right, Arch?”
Archie looked slightly guilty at failing to notice what his best friend had been going through all these months. “Definitely.” He said, and leaned forward. “Jughead, if you need a place to stay…”
Months of tension had finally been released, relief coursing through Jughead’s veins. A tear trickled down his smiling face, only encouraging Betty’s tears to fall and Archie’s eyes to water. Veronica massaged Jughead’s hand.
“Yes.” Jughead accepted. Yes, his family was still torn apart, and yes, his father still engaged in abominable activities in a very violent gang, but right now, Jughead could rest.

there in 20 minutes!” you texted your best friend. You were going over to
Zach’s house, he was home alone and asked you to babysit his little sister with
him. You and Zack had been best friends for 5 years or something like that, you
lost count. One night he found you crying your eyes out in the park, he sat
next to you and held you in his arms until you stopped crying. You were so
thankful, since that day you were inseparable. He picked you up on his way to
school, you made homework together, you supported his basketball games and he
supported your soccer games. You had developed some strong feelings for the
jock, but that little thing there was the problem. Zach was a gift from heaven,
no doubt, but Zach was very easy influenced by his other jock friends. Making
bets and letting him do things that weren’t like him so you decided to push
your feelings away and just enjoy the friendship you had. You picked your bag
with make up since little Mae always wanted to do your make up and let you do
hers. You got in your car and went to the Dempsey villa. Mae opened the door.
y/n is here!! Did you bring your make-up? Let’s go let’s let’s go!” She shouted
while pulling you inside at your wrist. She picked you with her to her cute
pink room. While running there you past by Zach on the stairs.
got to go!” you went to Mae’s room, did a little chit chat with her, did her
make-up, let her do yours. After you went down stairs with her when you saw
Zach coming home with the pizza he ordered.
at the two of you being pretty.” You ate all together and after you brought Mae
to bed, you took of her make-up and put her under her sheets. When you came
downstairs Zach already chose a movie. It was your favourite, the perks of
being a wallflower.
good choice!” you said while placing yourself next to him. This was probably
the 7th time you saw it but it never let you down. Zach placed his
arm around you like he did all the time. When you were together it always
seemed like you were a couple but just without the benefits. Suddenly Zach was
getting closer than other times, you looked confused at him when you suddenly
felt his lips crush against yours, in the beginning you kissed him back but
then you realised why you pushed back your feelings so you pulled back.
are you doing?”
love you, I’ve been in in love with you for so long now. I couldn’t hold it
it’s better if I go, I’ll see you around Zach.” You say while picking up your
stuff very fast and walking out the door. Zach made all you feelings come back
with that simple kiss, you did so well pushing them back. As much as you wanted
to be with him getting hurt again wasn’t an option. You were so scared of
getting hurt again. Sooner or later he would be bored with you or he would see
you’re no relationship material and then he would break your heart. You ignored
his texts and calls for the rest of the weekend, you weren’t in the mood for
pretty soon but you were dedicated to avoid Zach, of course you wanted to stay
friends but you had to push back your feelings first. You knew now that Zach
liked you to but those feelings were probably temporary so you figured it would
be better to just let it go. When you entered school you saw Zach’s jock gang
hanging around one’s locker but Zach wasn’t with them, maybe he was still
training for basketball, he always looked so good in his basketball jersey..
you were lost in your thoughts when you arrived at your locker. Maybe if you
had payed attention you would have seen Zach standing at your locker.
Zach, goodmorning.” You say acting like nothing happened.
need to talk.”
“Yeah Zach I
figured, maybe we should just act like it never happened, give me a little time
and it will be okay.” In your mind you were punching yourself in the face
multiple times, how could you talk so heartless to him? He was your best
want to act like it never happened y/n.” Zach said, slightly raising his voice.
“I’ve loved you for such a long time now and I can’t hold it back anymore, I can’t
go another night with you sitting in front of me looking all cute and perfect
and not being able to kiss you.”
over tonight, we’ll talk.” You say while filling your backpack and walking off
to your class room. The day went by soooo slowly, you were in your last class when
your phone buzzed.
you home, see you at my car. – Z.”
felt way more nervous. You were going to talk with Zach, what were you going to
say? That you loved him? He had the right to know but you still didn’t want to
get hurt. The bell rang, you picked up you stuff and walked over to Zach’s car.
He was already waiting next to it, the both of you got in without exchanging a
word. You arrived at his house, got in and sat yourself down in his room. He followed
you and sat down in front of you.
“I know I can’t
make you love me y/n, but I couldn’t contain myself anymore.”
already did..” you say very quit, maybe hoping he didn’t hear.
you say?” he asked with a confused look on his face
made me love you Zach. I’ve been in love with you for a very long time now, and
you deserve to know but I pushed back all my feelings. As much as I love the
person you are I’ve seen you being influenced by your friends and I was and I still
am so scared they wouldn’t like me and make you dump me. I don’t want to get
hurt again Zach, I really don’t.” Tears start welling up in your eyes. You never
poured you feelings out like that, to anyone.
you even think I would hurt you? Honestly I’ve seen you at your lowest days,
your best days, everything and all those things made me love you even more. I know
I did some pretty dumb things in the past but I would never do something to
know Zach. Everything I loved only caused pain before, why would this be any
“Because I feel
like I found the love of my life, we’ve been best friends for 5 years now and I
loved every second of it, you never bore me, you always make me smile, you take
care of me and I do the same for you. Do I have to go on?”
“You have a
try it, we don’t have to rush things. Nothing will change I promise, you don’t
even have to be around my friends If you don’t want to. I’ll do anything for
you.” Zach says while standing up and sitting down next to you. He picks both
of your hands in his.
never ever let you down.” He says before leaning in to you and kissing you. You
kissed him back without pulling back this time. You felt butterflies in your
“I love you
Zach” you slowly whisper before kissing him again. Maybe this time things would
be different, just for once.
