DeCarlo Rules: I think you can take it as a given that there's no happy ending to Afterlife With Archie, and there's no real conclusion short of "everyone dies". The good guys do not win.; there is no cure for zombies.

DeCarlo Rules:  I couldn't help notice that ACP seems to be focusing on Classic Archie again, now that they're reduced to nothing but the ongoing digests and one-shots.

Shipping characters in the Archie universe

Mr.Lodge

Discounting Riverdale (the crappy TV show) which characters would you ship?


You can include and mix Josie, Sabrina, The new kids, etc....



Reggie/Veronica - reason vain, arrogant, made for each other.
Reggie/Cheryl - same as above.
Jughead/Toni Topaz - reason both love food.

JonInIowaCity

Kevin Keller/Catfish Joe
Kevin/Jason
Archie/Amisha/Valerie

Shuester


Honestly, I can go with most of the ships that Archie comics throw at me. But some of the ones I don't like are:


- Archie and Cheryl. It makes sense why Archie would want her, but she won't tolerate him for long. And it is purely physical on Archie's part, so it's pointless.
- Chuck and Nancy with other people. They go well together.
- Little Archie shipping. No ten year olds "date" the way the Little Archie gang does.

The greatest ship in the known universe will appear in my ongoing fanfic, one that J.K. Rowling describes as, "Much better than that dreck, Harry Potter."  Chapter 2 coming very soon:

I don't think she means adults dating 10 year olds.   ;D

I agree re: Little Archie. The book was cute and fun when they were acting like little kids and going on adventures but once it started dealing with romantic hijinks, what was even the point of having Little Archie stories if they were just going to end up like the main title?

Personally, I don't really hate any ships except for something awful like minor/adult. I'm not fond of Archie/Veronica or Reggie/Veronica because I don't find them particularly interesting.

My favorite canon couple is Archie/Valerie, pretty much the only relationship in Archie Comics with any depth.

Semi-canon, I like Reggie/Betty, the shippers on this forum really made me appreciate this pairing. They were fun together when they were scheming to keep Archie and Veronica apart.

Before the reboot I would have wanted to see Veronica paired up with one of the new kids, either Lonnie (Lonnie and Ronnie, how quaint) because he was a rich kid like her but a lot more down to earth, so I think he would have been good for her, or with Danny D'Angelo because I think he would be a good foil for Veronica.

Of course my main ship is Jughead/Veronica. They would make the WORST couple but it would be entertaining to behold.

I don't know, while Jughead and Cheryl have no love for each other, I don't think Jughead's quirks bother Cheryl as much as they bother Veronica. For people who cannot stand each other, Jughead and Veronica can't leave each other alone; they've always got an opinion on what the other is doing no matter how trivial it is.

And I just don't recall any interaction between Ginger and Jughead, but Ginger has become nicer since she has stopped trying to become a dialed down Cheryl, so I don't see why Jughead would have a problem with her and vice-versa. Then again in AWA he's a zombie and she's a lesbian, so yeah, I don't see that working out.

Okay, you've got me there.  ;)

DeCarlo Rules

I only have two.

Jughead + Trula Twyst  - Actually pretty obvious with a close reading of the stories.

Dilton + Marcy McDermott-Lodge (or whatever it is now) - Actually sorta happened in Archie vs Sharknado, in whatever alternate Archieverse that took place in.
