    Summary

    Ugh, Jughead. They’ve been at each other’s throats since Betty could remember.

     
    She’s also been hopelessly in love with him since day one.
    It started in middle school when Ethel started to show affection for Jughead. She felt this feeling in her stomach. At the time, she blamed it on disgust. How could anyone like Jughead?
     

    This went on for a year, the sinking feeling. It wasn’t until sophomore year, when Jughead went out on a date with Toni - a girl
    he’d met on the Southside, that she admitted that the feeling was jealousy.

     

    Of course, she didn’t tell anyone. Not even Veronica. She wouldn’t be able to deal with the look of pity she would have given her.
     

    Because Jughead Jones hates Betty Cooper.
     

    That’s a known fact. And contrary to popular belief, Betty Cooper does not hate Jughead Jones.

     
    Or, Archie and Veronica decide to go on a late honeymoon, and Jughead and Betty have to spend two weeks taking care of their little boy Jeremy. Only problem: They can't go a day without fighting.
    (Inspired by the movie Life As We Know It)

    Summary

    It’s not that Betty doesn’t love her boyfriend. She loves him. But sweet feelings with which they started dating merged into strong friendship. She loved him as a part of her life, but not as a lover.

    Not that she loves Jughead.

    They don’t talk or spend time together. They just fuck.

    Summary

    A multi-chapter fic loosely based on the song of the same title by Taylor Swift. Jughead and Betty have been best friends and neighbors for all of their lives and Betty has been in love with him since middle school, but he's been too oblivious to notice it. To add onto Betty's struggle, he has a possessive on and off girlfriend Sabrina Spellman, who has been making Betty's life miserable since Jughead began dating her. When Betty begins to notice the bruises on Jughead's face and body, she grows increasingly worried for him, only to find out that his mom left him with his alcoholic father, who has now become abusive.

    Summary

    Betty cherishes massage therapist Jughead's touch and empathy beyond a professional client-therapist capacity. Her cute comment cards, tips, and glowing reviews lead Jughead to pursue her as a permanent companion. A connection even more satisfying than nerve endings and caresses is brewing with them each session - and with the way his hands work, it’s only a matter of time before she feels particularly good enough to blurt out, “I love you.”

    Summary

    And one day, maybe she'll stay,
    And start to head over his way.
    And one day, she'll look into his eyes,
    and instead of breaking, she'll call him mine...

    God, how she waits for that day. When she’ll reveal herself to him, be brave enough to stop hiding in the shadows. Right now she’s too scared to do more than imagine it though. She knows that pining is stupid, but what else can she do? She’s scared of rejection. More specifically, his rejection. And she’s sure that’s what she’ll get.

    One day he'll grab her by the waist,
    And force them to meet face to face.
    And one day, he'll look into her eyes,
    And say that "You're my only light"

    He won’t give up trying to talk to her. The fact that he’s been in love with her for years feels too important to give up on. But he’ll have to catch her first – even though she has no idea she’s been running.

    Or

    An AU based completely off the lyrics to the song ‘One Day’ by Tate McRae.

    Summary

    The semester passes much in the same way: Betty just cannot bring herself to muster up her Betty Cooper charm and take the leap to ask out Jughead. She’s had what her roommate Veronica calls an embarrassing number of opportunities to do so but she just flounders. It’s not a too flustered to speak situation, nor an issue of timidness; Betty Cooper has a mental block when it comes to Jughead Jones.

    Each and every time she sees him, something stops her from biting the bullet.

    or, Betty pines and Jughead has no idea, and Veronica gets fed up over it.

    Summary

    “There’s a difference, you know,” Veronica tells him, arms crossed as she follows his glare, “in the way you look at Betty and the way she looks at Archie.”

    Jughead jumps, startled out of his musings, as well as fairly embarrassed that he hadn’t even heard Veronica approaching him. “What?”

    Raising an eyebrow at him, she smirks at his defensive posture. “It’s a little late to pretend you weren’t watching your Juliet laughing along with the wrong Romeo.”

     

    Or, in other words, Veronica thinks Jughead should get off his ass and do something about it all.

    Summary

    Betty continues to watch him all night, hoping he’ll open his mouth to talk to her instead of shouting animatedly at the tv screen. Or that he’ll hand over his controller and let her try for a round, prove she belongs.

    And though she doesn’t remember much else about that night, Betty does remember one glaring detail: He never even looks at her.
