Thursday Ten: reasons I like Jughead

Looks like it’s going to be all about Riverdale and Jughead today!

I actually had something else planned for today’s top ten, but there’s enough time in the world to talk about books. Since the start of the second season of Riverdale, I’ve been doing weekly reviews, and most of them, if not all, centered around the best character from the show, Jughead.

Today, I bring you ten reasons why I dig Forsythe Pendleton Jones III aka Jughead. This should’ve been done a long time ago, but now is also good so let’s talk about why I like this tall, dark, and brooding character. 🙂

Cole Sprouse plays him

Cole Sprouse is the man. I remember watching him alongside his twin on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and I was team Cody all the way. Cole was the perfect candidate to portray Jughead Jones; I don’t see no other. 

He writes

Call me bias if you want, but when I was younger, I loved and adored stories with characters who were librarians or writers. Jughead writes and he’s dedicated to his craft. When he isn’t writing, he’s eating; when he isn’t eating, he’s writing.

He’s also a cinephile.

He cares about the truth

If it’s one thing I love about Jughead is the fact that he constantly searches for the truth. In season one, finding out what truly happened to Jason Blossom was his top priority. 

His sarcasm

His sarcasm is off the radar and I love it for he’s a master at this wonderful art.

His relationship with Betty is goals

Unlike his best friend Archie, Jughead knows what he wants, and he has his eyes on one girl, the lucky Betty Cooper. Throughout the first season, I watched him devote his time and attention to her. He was there for her when she found out the truth about her sister Polly and always made time from his schedule to just be by her side. They’re soulmates.

His bromance with the redhead jock

When I read books, I look for that special friendship bond because I’m a sucker for a friendship with a strong bond and Jughead and Archie have that special chemistry that I love between friends. 

It also helps that KJ and Cole are great friends in real life.

His love for food

He frequents Pop’s more than anyone else and would use any excuse to get food. Just about any excuse.

The boy sure loves his stomach just like I do!

His aesthetic and beanie

Jughead’s aesthetic is totally skater boy meets brooding writer… that was my first thought when I first saw him. The crown beanie is special because it’s a part of him and without it, he wouldn’t be Jughead.

He isn’t afraid to be himself

He isn’t afraid to be weird for he does not conform to society’s trend of the norm. This is my favorite thing about him. I have a character just like this and I enjoy writing him.

He’s perfection

Character-wise that is. I wish I had written him! He is like a younger angsty version of Dr. Spencer Reid. He is flawed, but he embraces it without trying to be perfect for anyone. I love his quirks for it is very endearing. It’s okay to be different, and he boldly makes this statement without attaching attention to himself.

That’s ten already? Time flies fast when you’re having fun!

365 Days of Writing

November 4th: It builds character

 :

Tell us about a favorite character from film, theater, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?

How about all of my favorite characters around a table? Dr. Spencer Reid, Jughead and of course, Ethan Hunt. Since Reid is the genius, he can tell Agent Hunt why it is dangerous scaling tall buildings when he starts to age, while Jughead and I discuss writing. 🙂

Okay, joking aside, I’ll have to choose Jughead because I already chose the other two when this question came up some time ago. Jughead has a love of serial killers and true crime and that is also my crack so forget heart-to-heart, we’ll be talking about unsolved mysteries and theory conspiracies.

Criminal Minds: about last night

So, Criminal Minds totally blindsided us last night and I bet the writers and producers are still patting themselves on the back for getting us so distracted with the Dr. Spencer Reid arc that we didn’t see the plot twist of a century coming. Exaggeration much?

With three more episodes left this season and Spencer Reid still behind bars, the BAU sends Dr. Tara Lewis to visit Reid for a cognitive interview. It took a little frustration on his part, but Reid eventually remembers the murder in Mexico and *GASPS* IT’S A WOMAN! Twitter went into a meltdown last night.

 :

When Criminal Minds official Twitter handle retweet you >.<

So, we came up with several theories

^ Mr. Scratch is a woman (a few believed that he is actually transgendered).

^ The woman in question is actually helping Mr. Scratch. (Very plausible)

^ The woman in question is Dr. Reid’s mother’s caretaker (I rule this one out).

^ The woman in question is actually Cat Adams (S11). From the moment the blurred woman was revealed, I thought about Cat.

Cat Adams actually threatened Reid in the 11th season and boldly prophesied that she would remember his name in 20 years, but he won’t remember hers. Let’s be honest for a bit here, even if it’s 100 years, we’ll all be remembering Reid’s name. You, Cat, not so much.

Luckily, MGG & Miss Plaza are friends in reality.
But I still think they’d make a terrific pair!

Anyways, back to the show.

This Cat woman was a potential love interest for Reid. He went out to dinner with her and she turns out to be a serial killer. Even had a gun trained on the good doctor and everything.

It’s funny that Reid is always stuck with the crazy ones. He might need more than a hug after this season!

They threw that boomerang at us last night and pulled out the torture card meaning that we have to wait until April 26th for a new episode. Overall, I was very impressed with last night’s episode and great directing by Joe Mantegna.

Musings

Awards

Cheila nominated me for the Crammed in Awards a while aback. Pink for Days is an awesome blog and I suggest you pay a visit if you haven’t done so already.

Since this blog is awards free, I’m just going to do away with the rules and answer her questions (I hope this is okay, Cheila) 🙂

Tell me how awesome you are. What do you do better than anyone else? What do you love about yourself?

I am a notorious speed reader (by mouth and by eyes) and I use this to my advantage whenever I read books, the dailies, and even blogs. When I was in school, my classmates would nominate me to read whenever the teacher asks for a volunteer. I won’t say I do that better than anyone else, but I bet I can match Spencer Reid!

Ah, forget it! I haven’t read 5 books in a week since I’ve begun working. My glorious reading days are over!

I love EVERYTHING about myself. Even the flaws. It makes me who I am.

I was also nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by the awesome that diary and the wonderful Navvirk. Their posts are always a joy to read and if you’re in need some upliftment, you’ll certainly love their blogs. Thank you, ladies 🙂

Again, I’ll be doing away with the rules since this blog is awards free. Alright, let’s get to it:

How my blog got started?

The story behind the blog’s name is quite a funny one. Anyway, I only had one blog aback in 2012 where I focused on football. 

i-love-football

I don’t have a special story for opening La Petit Muse. At the time of opening this blog, I wanted to post about the ups and downs of writing. I wanted to post motivating pics daily encouraging writers to tap into their talent, but things took a turn for the best I guess. ^.^

Two pieces of advice to new bloggers.

I am not an advice expert, but I’ll leave two suggestions here:

I always tell people to be themselves. This is the most important thing for everyone out there, not bloggers only.

Don’t let others tell you who you are. You tell them who you are.

Image result for be yourself gif

Another thing I tell people is to be bold and creative. Sometimes we have a brilliant idea and because we’re fearful of what others may think, we keep it to ourselves… only to see that very same idea materialized by someone else who gets the praise for being a creative genius!
