Riverdale (TV series)

In the Riverdale TV series, Archie and Jughead have been best friends since childhood. Their relationship becomes strained as they made decisions that force them apart. Archie begins a relationship with his teacher Ms. Grundy and hides this from his friends. Later he believes Jughead's father FP Jones is reponsible for Jason Blossom's murder, causing further tension. In season 2, Jughead joins the South Side Serpents and Archie forms a vigilante group known as The Red Circle. Neither approves of the others actions. Despite all of these incidents, Jughead and Archie have remained close friends.

The pairing of Archie and Jughead is the most popular slash ship and the third most popular ship overall in the Riverdale fandom.[1] This is based on the number of fics posted on Ao3, where the gen pairing of these two is also quite common.[1] Fics portraying Jughead Jones as an asexual character are common within this pairing. Many fics where their relationship is developing involve discussion of boundaries and consent.
