    Summary

    As the teens of Riverdale begin their senior year, hope seems to be stirring for the town - however, old threats come knocking and new mysteries surface. When one of the Core Four go missing, will the others be able to save them in time, all while battling their inner demons, family issues, and the fallout of recent events?

    My take on Season 4. Nothing about the current on-air Season 4 is canon because I started writing this before it aired. Archie isn't a vigilante, the Lodge parents are still in jail, the FBI/Farm storyline hopefully has a little more bang for its buck, Charles is actually a wholesome brother, and Jughead is still at Riverdale High.

    Some mature content on violence, kidnapping, PTSD, mental health struggles, but not enough in my opinion for a full "graphic" warning.

    Summary

    Gladys doesn’t cry until after she’s hung up the phone and for a minute it feels like she’s never going to stop. Without even questioning it, she calls her boss at the mechanic shop and tells him that there’s a family emergency and then walks back into her apartment, packing a bag to go home. Her kids need her. Her husband needs her.

    She needs this for herself.

    OR

    Gladys finds out about Fred because she has to.

    Summary

    Gladys hums and cups his cheek in her hand, delicately rubbing her thumb under the eggplant crescent of his black eye. Jughead watches her calmly, leans into her touch so subtly it’s almost imperceptible.

    “This isn’t the reunion I was hoping for,” she admits.

    “Me, either. I messed up, Mom."

    “People mess up, Jug. It’s life.” Gladys drops her hand but not unkindly.

    Summary

    “Betts?” he says quietly. She glances up at him, her eyes blank, gnawing on her thumbnail. Jughead frowned and reached over and pulled her thumb down, wrapping her hand in his.

    “I have to call my mom, because it’s the day after Thanksgiving, so she’ll be planning Christmas, so I have to tell her I’m not coming, and she’s going to start sighing and carrying on, and I’m going to cave, because that’s what I do around my mother.” She huffed out finally.

    Summary

    Jughead Jones wasn’t overly fond of Christmas. He’d loved it, once upon a time, when he was young and oblivious to life’s foibles. But as he aged, as he moved through life, his family crumbled to pieces, and by the time he was fourteen and his mother was begging him to leave with her and his younger sister in the wee hours of the morning on a snowy December day, he’d started to resent the holiday. It was the same canned cheer and forced normalcy he felt around his birthday, but a hundred fold, because the entire fucking world was celebrating it.

    (A Bughead AU inspired by A Christmas Carol)

    Summary

    "I came here to help you see that you’re making a poor decision and I-.”

    “No!” Jughead snaps, standing up suddenly. “You don’t get to do that. You don’t get to leave and then show up again like nothing happened; you lost your right to make decisions for me the moment you drove out of this stupid town. You left me. How could you just leave me here?"

    OR

    Anon asked: Can you make a fic where Jughead sees his mom again, except she's only there to try to talk him out of an relationship with Archie?

    Summary

    Jughead comes to in a panic, sitting up and yanking his legs close again. Dizzy, he hunches forward, curling into himself. It feels like his heart is going beat itself out of his chest, a warm arm slinks across his shoulders and he can’t help but flinch at the contact. He doesn’t often like to be touched, something about it has always made his skin crawl. Even with his own family members, physical contact wasn’t something that he like to just hand out. Jughead had to want it, or it caused him to feel funny.

    A familiar voice starts speaking in his ear and he relaxes the slightest bit. “Jug, Jughead hey, it’s just me. It’s Archie, you’re okay.”

    OR

    Jughead is sick and having a Bad Time.
