Authors, and Websites

None yet.

General Fics

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Long and Lustrous Winter by livii.

  • Recommended by Pichu
  • Synopsis: This time, Betty thinks, as she fixes her ponytail with a slightly manic sense of determination, she's going to try being a lesbian. In which Betty Cooper learns a few life lessons. And again. And again. And again.
  • Comments: Despite the synopsis it isn't really a shipping fic - it revolves around a Groundhog Day Loop. It's short, sweet, and to the point.

Shipping Fics

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Jughead Jones by Catharine Chen

  • Recommended by pimpdaddy
  • Pairing: Archie/Jughead
  • Synopsis: Jughead contemplates his friendship with Archie, and his bitterness over his time spent with Betty and Veronica these days.
  • Comments: Brilliantly written, very emotional. It's a short read but worth it.

Finding Their Footing by Miggy

  • Recommended by Cass
  • Pairing: Reggie/Betty
  • Synopsis: Life wasn't supposed to be this hard.
  • Comments: This really catches that timeless Archie feeling in Reggie and Betty's characters even as they're finally moving forward in life and finding out that everything can't always be the same forever after those fifty years in high school.

Friends Don't Let Friends Suffer Alone by tuesday

  • Recommended by idratherbeloislane and Pichu
  • Pairing: Veronica Lodge/Betty Cooper
  • Synopsis: The problem with friends is that they plot against you.
  • Comments: A really cute, but not too fluffy fic about Betty and her developing feelings for Veronica. The author does a really excellent job of portraying her friendship with all of her friends, even Cheryl Blossom.

Cars, Sandwiches and Other Kisses by yue ix

  • Recommended by Pichu
  • Pairing: Veronica Lodge/Betty Cooper
  • Synopsis: Five times Betty and Veronica kissed.
  • Comments: It's a WAFF if I've ever seen one. It's not particularly long and it's rather in-character too.
