  • If your man can’t handle you walking around in regency dress as if you’re in a period drama then he doesn’t deserve you.

  • Betty Cooper and Frank Churchill are the same person…

    Let me explain:

    1. Frank Churchill is seen as the golden child, perfect in every way. He is supposed to be charming, well-mannered, funny. He is an improvement on the less interesting people in Highbury, and will not make the mistakes of his father, who had to send his child away due to financial trouble/ being unable to properly care for a young child.

    Betty has a reputation as the girl-next-door, pastel-coloured suburban dream. For Alice, she represents a do-over, someone who won’t make the mistakes of her sister, or the mother who also sent her child away from home because she ‘required’ help Alice couldn’t give her.

    2. Because of this reputation, and the anticipation of finally meeting him, everyone flocks to Frank like bees to honey when he arrives. He attracts positive attention, and he loves it. Emma even thinks she may be in love with him, partly because they are so similar and he does not lecture her or try to make her better.

    Betty’s good-girl attitude attracts positive attention, especially from Veronica, who sees her as the perfect friend to improve her own image and make her life less toxic, away from the toxic stereotypes she sees in Highbury, I mean Riverdale. In this way, Betty also briefly plays the role of Harriet Smith to Veronica’s Emma, who sees her as a good-natured innocent and even tries to set her up with Archie. Unfortunately, Elton, sorry, Archie, already fancies Veronica.

    3. Frank could get away with murder. That’s how much everyone loves him. He lies to his friends for months, puts his fiancee through hell thinking she’s been dumped, and he flirts with someone else and even SHE is okay with it after. No apologies. Nothing.

    Betty DID get away with murder and nobody batted an eye (okay, Chic didn’t die, but she did send a serial killer after him with the intention of letting him be killed). Not to mention almost drowning a guy, blackmail, obstruction of justice, accessory to murder. The list goes on. She also put Jughead through hell by breaking up with him through Archie, and after, much like Jane Fairfax, he seems totally whipped and takes her back no questions asked.

    4. Two of the main characters see through Frank’s nonsense: Emma and Knightley. Emma at first thinks she’s in love with him because they seem so similar, but she realises there are no romantic feelings and remains friends with him; she also manages to criticise him when his actions are revealed, which no one else seems willing to do. Knightley saw through his vapid exterior when he didn’t attend his father’s wedding, and his opinion only got worse from there, which wasn’t helped by his jealousy over Frank’s supposed romantic intentions towards Emma.

    Two characters also see through Betty’s facade (and, no, one of them isn’t Jughead. He’s too whipped): Archie and Veronica. Archie thought he could be in love with Betty because of the idealised best friend he sees in his head, but he realised in season 1 that his feelings were of friendship and they did not fall out completely over it. He also criticises her unwarranted cruelty towards Veronica and the way she *fake* breaks up with Jughead. Veronica desperately wants someone pure to be her friend so it takes her a little longer, but she calls Betty out for her BS in the Carrie episode and defends herself against Betty’s slut-shaming.

    5. I know I’ve said this before, but it’s the most important point. Even when Frank’s deception and shitty behaviour is revealed, everyone is eager to forgive him, and he doesn’t have to make any real effort to redeem himself or apologise. His father, the Bates’, Jane Fairfax, and to an extent, even Emma, ignores his actions and he gets off with no repercussions of any kind. His intent was to hide his relationship to Jane; however INTENT DOESN’T MATTER. ACTION DOES. And his actions were horrible and unnecessarily cruel.

    Betty is exactly the same. Once the issue of the Black Hood is “resolved” (the quotes are cause the resolution was also bullshit), without any apologies or reparations from Betty, she is forgiven. They barely even mention the hell she put them through. Archie, Jughead, even Veronica to an extent, let her get away with it. Her intention was to fool the Black Hood and keep him from murdering people, but she didn’t have to go after Veronica like that or break up with Jughead; she told Archie the truth, so why not them? Like I said, INTENT DOESN’T MATTER. ACTION DOES. And her actions should’ve ruined her relationship with these people for good.

    I’m going to finish by explaining how the other characters in Riverdale fit into ‘Emma’ archetypes:

    Jughead Jones = Emma Woodhouse

    Though Jughead does occasionally fit into the 'Jane Fairfax’ model by allowing and validating his significant other’s actions, mostly he is like Emma as he is more outspoken and takes action where others don’t. Also, in my opinion, Jughead Jones, like Emma Woodhouse, thinks he is in love with Frank/Betty because he thinks he sees a kindred spirit and simultaneously believes that he is a bad person who needs someone “pure” to make him better. Unfortunately, Jughead has quite not reached Chapter 37, where realises that “love” was a fancy.

    Veronica Lodge = George Knightley

    Veronica shares some personality traits with Emma in that she is outspoken, driven and cares deeply about her friends. The same is true of Knightley however, the difference being that he acts in a fatherly manner with his friends and is less forgiving when it has not been earned: Veronica did not forgive her mother for forging her signature, or Betty until she made an effort to apologise and be better, for once. Veronica is really the mother of the group, keeping a level head in stressful situations when others panic, such as when Jughead’s two best friends searched for him for hours, and she found him in a matter of minutes.

    Archie Andrews = Robert Martin

    Both Archie and Robert Martin are down-to-earth, handsome and kind men who may lack the high intellect or refinement of other characters. There is nothing wrong with this, but also means that he is less ambitious than people like Jughead or Veronica and is content to live in Riverdale forever like his father. His kindness sets his apart from other characters, and they agree both hugely optimistic and very endearing.

    There are several other character comparisons to be made, like Cheryl/ Mrs. Bates, Chuck/ Mr. Elton, Alice/ Mrs. Elton, etc. but you get the point.

    So this sort of turned into a rant about Betty Cooper’s shitty actions, but I think it serves to illustrate what’s wrong with the writing in Riverdale because in Emma, at least some people are willing to acknowledge this behaviour is wrong.

  • I’ve only just started reading Pride And Prejudice for the first time, I never got really into the plot but I always had it at home, so I decided to read it mainly for the sake of my personal knowledge… I’m not even at half of it but I definitely understand why it’s considered to be one of the best romantic novels ever written. I’m such a clown for not reading it earlier. It screams enemies-to-lovers excellence from the very first chapters.

  • Austenland - “You are my fantasy”

    I recently read this book again, by Shannon Hale, after being obsessed with Jane Austen again due to Sanditon

    This movie never fails to make me laugh, Jennifer Coolidge is a queen of comedy for me!

    But I also just love the chemistry between Keri Russell and JJ Feild

    Give it a watch/read if you want some Jane Austen fun after sanditon :D
