Recently looked into the Archie comics again, and decided to look into fanfiction...This story is extremely simple: obviously the content isn't, but the wording is, which makes it hard for me to enjoy it. The fact that there are quick resolutions and not much closure didn't help either. I understand that you tried to keep it in comic format, but that may have been a mistake, especially with the darkness of it all.

My only criticism is that Archie, notably, seems OOC. It's fascinating to read him in the light you illustrate him as (extremely antagonistic), but... it is hard to imagine ol' Archie as such a terrible, out of control baddie. Reggie, perhaps. Archie? Manipulative at worst.
But, that said, you do write very well, and I like your style.

I hate to be the annoying person who criticizes format but the story would be a lot more effective(and easier to read) if the dialouge was separated into lines and not in the paragraphs(the the story into chapters).
Good story overall, the straight-forwardness of the description made the story 'visual' and fast-moving(like the comic) even though it compromised the emotion a little(like Archie's death or in potential contribution to the overall theme of crisis yielding self-realization). A lot of fanfictioners on here seems to have a thing for Archie going off the deep end and attacking people :-P

The ending of your story brings a sense of fulfillment. I don't know quite how to explain it. I like how it goes full circle, starting with the first edition of her essay, where she was plain and girl-next-door and ending with the final edition of her essay, where she is a person.

that was really nice... my favourite story on ffnet ever! but betty's and archie's parents were totally OOC... i'm sure they're really more understanding, especially Betty's mom.
