Signing up to archieveofourown.com was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
I’ve discovered so many great stories and so many amazing authors! As a Bughead fan, I’ve been obsessed with them. I finished season 2 and I immediately wanted more.
In the mean time, check out my other Riverdale posts! The most cringeworthy moments and the season 3 trailer breakdown.
Keep reading and you’ll find a selection of my favourite long multi-chapters stories!
“Scars” by IndianSummer13
When rising photographer Jughead Jones scores a photo shoot with model-of-the-moment Betty Cooper, he expects to use it, simply, to help his career take off. What he doesn’t expect, is to be so enraptured with her beauty. Or for the single shoot to turn into a series of stunning portraits, Or to witness the marks on her palms grow into burns across her skin. What he doesn’t expect either, is to be her salvation.
I loved this story! So. Much! There is an overall sadness and hopefulness that made me stay up for hours reading it.
When cafe owner Betty Cooper receives a cake order for mysterious Southside Serpent Jughead Jones for his sister’s Birthday, she is automatically attracted to him. When he invites her to stay for his sister’s birthday party, Betty finds herself getting more and more drawn to him. And discovers he isn’t anything like his reputation says.
Dark and scary Jughead Jones is my favourite. And his story is adorable.
Betty Cooper, an avid hiker gets lost on a new trail and after wandering for three days and seriously injuring herself, manages to stumble on a cabin, miles from civilization. Who is the mysterious dark haired, blue eyed stranger that nurses her back to health and what is he doing all alone, cut off from human contact in the middle of nowhere.
This is so dark and explicit and lovely and… I loved it so much. I fell in love with it.
Consistency is one way to avoid shock. You can’t be freaked if you know what’s going to happen. Sure, Jughead maybe cynical but not without his reasons. He was still plastered to the side of Archie and shielded by the tough exterior of Veronica but he did not foresee the return of Betty Cooper with a secret she cannot hide or how she would fit seamlessly back into his very consistently, ordinary life.
I looooooooooved Jughead and Veronica’s friendship. I fell in love with it and with the story. I need to read this again as soon as possible.
If you love explicit, dark, romantic and heartbreaking stories, these are the ones I would recommend.
There are so many more and if I were to include them all, this post would never end.
Let me know if you have any recommendations for me! I’d love to find out more stories and bughead-centred fanfictions.
