    Summary

    Two gates for ghostly dreams there are: one gateway
    of honest horn, and one of ivory.
    Issuing by the ivory gate are dreams
    of glimmering illusion, fantasies,
    but those that come through solid polished horn
    may be borne out, if mortals only know them.
    - Homer, The Odyssey (Robert Fitzgerald translation)

    Betazed is the ivory gate. What they come to be on the Enterprise is far more honest and true.

    (Or, the extended canon of Will Riker and Deanna Troi, in 176 episodes.)

    Summary

    He walks over to her and surprises her by reaching for her left hand. He lifts it up, and she’s startled to see that she’s wearing two diamond rings. She stares at them, her hungover brain not fully understanding their significance - and then Jughead lifts his left hand to show her a silver ring on his own fourth finger.

    Her breath catches in her throat, and for a moment, she feels dizzy. “Ohmygod,” she says, the words rushed together. “Ohmygod.”

    ...

    Or, Betty and Jughead get accidentally-married in Las Vegas.

    Summary

    Rain drops from the tip of his nose and he smiles when she lowers her gun. She doesn’t let him in just yet though. She keeps the door partially closed, her fingers on the grip of her gun loosen and she blows out a soft sigh before reaching up and pushing her bangs away from her forehead, she doesn’t know why he’s here or what he wants, she just simply steps aside because even without words he's commanding. It's a trait that thrills her, accelerates her heart, and makes her blood run hot.
