Cold as ice cream but still as sweet

Ah, i see the overwhelming amount of queer women of color in our media has tired you out. Clearly they should try something new and refreshing like a heterosexual “will they or won’t they” plot

Did you know it’s illegal to write fanfiction about The Archies?!

texaskingofthegeeks:

That has to be the stupidest, most idiotic law ever made!

It was made because the creator didn’t like that some of them used strange ships in their fics.

I’m not sure that it’s enforced anymore ever since the Archie leadership changed around 2008-2009. The new head of Archie seems more lenient about that sort of thing, but I could not say for certain. There are few places online that have Archie fan fiction.

"Flower Child"

credits unknown

reprint of Archie 293 (June 1980)

(If you can provide any credits for this story, I’d appreciate it! Based on the original publication date, Chic Stone is a possible inker and Stan Goldberg is a possible penciler.)

While I think it’s sweet of Archie to give flowers to his teachers, I’m not entirely convinced the other gifts were so casual. Especially the ones he gave to Betty, come on! So I don’t think Veronica’s jealousy is so unwarranted. I did get a laugh out of this comic though.

Team Veronica on this one. Sometimes she can be completely irrational and clueless but it is pretty awful that Archie has given flowers to every other girl in school BUT Veronica. I really don’t appreciate how the story is set up to make Veronica seem silly since flowers are often seen as a romantic overture and it is quite expected that a girl would be upset her boyfriend is giving other girls flowers.

from Betty & Veronica Double Digest 39 (Aug 1993)

"The Final Test"

credits unknown. Best guess is that it’s an early Dan Parent story.

This one’s for midnight-unicorn. We have Jughead looking cool, Archie and Reggie acting like fools, and a special BBQ dinner for Jug and the girls.

Veronica needs to wear headbands more often. She pulls off that style well. I could do without the ripped sleeves on Jughead, but other than that, he’s looking good too. It was a 90’s comic after all. Can’t expect perfect taste in clothes.

Truth in comics: guys who will shop with you are sexy!

Reuben doesn’t mind how much time I spend looking at American Eagle or Aeropostale, he knows he’s getting a big kiss and a giant pretzel at the food court. We’ll see a movie too, if we have the money. So why wouldn’t he go to the mall with me? It’s great.

Jug has learned well. This is the path to food and dates. :)

!!!! This story is amazing! I love that panel with Veronica putting her arm around Jughead. This is just another example of Jughead not being the male chauvinist that Reggie and Archie can be at times. Jughead is not so much of a woman-hater after all.

#standforferguson Charity Wallpaper Set, $1+
Some of you may have been hearing about what’s going on in Ferguson, MO, a suburb of St. Louis about 20 minutes from my house. 
The long and the short of it is that over the weekend, an unarmed black man named Michael Brown was killed by a police officer. Since then, things have spiraled downward, into violations of basic First Amendment rights. I could go on, but you’d likely be better served looking it up yourself.
That being said, I’m offering a charity wallpaper in order to raise funds to donate to the NAACP and ACLU, as both organizations are actively working towards finding justice both for Michael Brown and his family, as well as the greater population of Ferguson.
If you cannot donate, that’s absolutely fine, but I do ask that you try to educate yourself and others as to what’s going on in Ferguson. Tyranny is real, and it is on our soil right now.

I kind of feel this way too. Even though I shipped Ted and Robin until the end, Robin’s lack of admonition and tolerance of Barney’s past and present behavior irritated me.
