new pickup line
a friend was asking about the upcoming archie story set in the future where archie takes a bullet defending his friend, senator kevin keller, and dies, wondering if, in regards to that, the al hartley archie stories were still “canon”, where, as they put it, “archie becomes the right hand of jesus when he dies”, and i had to explain that actually archie exists in a kind of multiverse including but not limited to the recent Life with Archie series which explores a universe where he marries veronica and also a universe where he marries betty and that there is no real “canon” endpoint to archie; all archie is true, and all archie is false. the degree to which archie stories and archie canon fluctuates is so great that at one point jughead was a member of a time traveling police squad out to make sure that time happens “correctly”, for whatever that means.
inside of regular ol’ riverdale, there’s even “memory lane”, where, literally, characters walking up it travel back into the past, among other possible uses of the time traveling street.
all this and somehow there isn’t an archie time/dimensional travel visual novel dating sim
