    Summary

    The air is sticky and Betty’s hair isn’t really cooperating. She’s brushed it up into her usual ponytail no less than six times in the past half hour, but every single time there’s a traitorous bump or a section of flyaways that she can’t really tame, so she’s got to take it down and start again. It’s Archie she’s hanging out with, so she knows this is only for her benefit — he won’t notice the microscopic imperfections in her ponytail, he’ll just tug on it when he says hello, the way he always has...but still. It should be perfect.

    -

    Or, Archie Andrews and Betty Cooper go on a first date...that neither of them realize is a first date.

    Summary

    “There’s nothing to fix.” Betty blots her fingertips underneath her eyes as though stopping tears. “I’ll let you process, or not process, whatever you want. I’ll be back in a few hours.”

    She stands and pushes her chair in, movements heavy and sluggish. There’s an empty space, and then she’s tidied it up. The kitchen is neat, everything put away and wiped clean. Jughead stares at nothing. Betty’s keys rattle as she gets them off the hook, and he turns to see her standing in the doorway to the garage. “Where are you going?”

    Betty shrugs one shoulder, mouth pressed flat. “Nowhere.”

    Betty and Jughead marry, have a son, and then divorce. Enter Archie.

    Summary

    It had been like this lately, a rush of adrenaline at the sight of each other. A constant reminder.

    Thank god. Yes. You’re alive.

    Summary

    She unfurls her legs from beneath her, leans over to the wire table and pours out two shots. "Let's play two truths and a lie."

    It catches him off guard, but he doesn't question her. "Okay. What's the catch?"

    "You drink if I guess the lie. I drink if I get it wrong." she says, pausing for a moment. "You can drink if you don't want to answer at all."

    "Seems fair." he says with a nod. "Who's first?"
