    Summary

    There’s something so strange about doing this, she realizes. Something so final. Because tonight is different. It’s not like all the times before, huddled in a booth sharing a milkshake with her favorite people. This is it. Her last day here despite the fact that graduation is still a week away. But she’ll be long gone by then. San Francisco maybe, maybe Seattle, anywhere that's not Riverdale. Tonight is goodbye. It's why she can’t bring herself to scan the crowd for his face. If she does, if she sees him she knows this won’t work. One look at him and she’ll never even make it out of the diner.

    Told from Jughead's perspective, as if he was writing a novel, just like how he narrates the show. It sounds weird but give it a try. Dark fic, you have been warned.

    Summary

    “Tell me again how we’re so different in this scenario,” she repeated bitterly, her hands dropping her phone on the table in order to wrap around her arms. The fire that had been in her eyes just moments ago was completely doused, swimming instead with a loneliness that felt all too familiar in Jughead’s gut. He had spent the last year liking Veronica for the most part, even appreciating her at times, but he was honest when he said they didn’t actually know each other well. Right now, he realized perhaps he had avoided knowing her any better. Some primal part of him sensed something too close to his own damaged sense of self. Veronica may have gotten the hugs from her mother that Jughead still longed for from his own, but now he saw the kind of love and validation she missed out on. She was affection starved; so much so, that she didn’t know what to do with it when it finally arrived in her life.

    ————
    Or, Jughead and Veronica finally bond like they really already should have.

    Summary

    Betty Cooper knew she was ‘trapped’ by choice in a one-sided relationship since a long time.

    She wasn't enough for him, that explained why he was constantly cheating on her since the very beginning, and even though if it hurt her to see him with other girls, she decided to play oblivious, because she loved him.

    That's it, until one day he crosses the line.

    Completely heart broken after it, her best friend decides that a weird-themed party would distract her from everything even if she's not really sure about it.

    But maybe the hottie in a leather jacket is going to be the one doing that job.

    Summary

    When all of Riverdale is overtaken by one of the original Families deciding to return to formal Riverdale glory; Archie can't help but think that it's poetic. Jughead agrees that in some sort of Poe meets Dickenson sense it is; meaning the only poetic thing about it is that someone had to die for it to happen, and the Lodge princess seems already dead.

    Summary

    Everything appeared normal: Jughead had his laptop in front of him, a cup of coffee to his right, and the neon lights of Pop’s signs were a familiar shine along his cheekbones. He was typing frantically, forehead creased in concentration, except all he was writing, over and over, were the words, “don’t freak out don’t freak out don’t freak out don’t freak out don’t don’t fucking don’t freak out don’t-”

    Because he also had a backpack full of clothes and snacks and camping supplies tucked under the table, because he and Archie were finally going to take their road trip that got derailed last summer, but Archie wasn’t there yet.

    In fact, he was an hour late.

    Summary

    “Take a look at the cuff. No, the other one. See, the buttons don't quite match. One got caught in my hair when Jason grabbed my beanie off my head and threw it in the street. A truck ran it over. It was a sad day in the life of a Jones.”

    “Oh,” said Archie weakly.

    “Why, pray tell, do you have Jason Blossom's shirt?”

    “...Cheryl.” said Archie quietly.

    Jughead spun in a frustrated little circle. “Arch-

    Summary

    This is not a story about the Riverdale of my past, and I won’t bore you with anymore details of the town I used to know. After all, what purpose would that serve? Riverdale no longer resembles that town, and we no longer resemble those kids.

    "In his first novel, J Jones delivers Riverdale's very own 'In Cold Blood' as he documents the murder that shook the small town of Riverdale in the Summer of 2017. Factual, gripping, suspenseful, and deeply personal, Heart of Mine is a stunning first work that explores the complexities of coming of age during a murder investigation." - NY Times, 2022.

    Summary

    Betty opened the window and leaned over the ledge on her elbows. She quirked an eyebrow.
    “Is this going to become a habit?” She asked, referring to the last time Jughead snuck in. When he comforted her and kissed her and smiled so softly at her she felt the edges of her world blur.

    Summary

    Jason's murder forced a quiet town out of the past and into the present. It was unfortunate for Riverdale's outsiders that old flames weren't subjected to similar treatment.

    No longer canon after episode 1x06, Jason's murder is solved, and Archie and Betty are finally an item. For the other half of the core four, the world is much more complicated.

    Ratings set for future chapters.
