I’m never on here but I can’t help myself. I have questions and feelings about things.
When Archie says « it’s just a casual thing » and « we’re just friends », is he trying to convince himself because he’s scared of his feelings for Betty and confused about his feelings for V?
Or is bad writing?
When Betty says « deep in our cores, we are such different people », does she truly believe that, even though she’s clearly wrong and doesn’t have all the information?
Or is it bad writing?
Historically, the writing on the show hasn’t been the best so I have a tendency to go with the latter but the shipper in me wants to believe that this is a just a part of their journey. That Archie will see that what is familiar is not always best and sometimes the greatest things in life are scary. That Betty will see that being broken/dark is not always a bad thing, that beautiful things can come out of it. And I hope that they can finally share their traumas with each other and help each other heal, while recognizing they are not so different after all.
The only thing I hope for in the mean time is that we get to see these moments happens, that we keep seeing them being there for each other and actually be best friends since that is what they actually are but we’ve barely ever seen it on the show.
It’s all wishful thinking because after all, this is Riverdale. Ugh.
…We were onto s o me t h i n g.red string of fate • also referred to as the red thread of destiny, red thread of fate, and other variants, is an east asian belief originating from chinese legend and is also used in japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie a red cord around the ankles of those that are to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. […] The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but n e v e r b r e a k.
Just as I have insisted on his worth, he has always insisted on my strength, insisted that my capacity is greater than I believe. And I know, without being told, that’s what love does, when it’s right—it makes you more than you were, more than you thought you could be. This is right.
My life is different and sometimes it’s scary, and sometimes it’s sad to see things go because I still feel normal inside — so it’s kind of sad to see some of the things change that I wasn’t ready to change but I love acting and I wouldn’t be able to do anything else.
