Been thinking about that post (which I’m too lazy to hunt for now) thats says fictional characters are not real people: they are characters that drive a narrative.
I’ve been away from the Rick and Morty fandom for a few years and I’m just getting back into it and some of the takes I see on the tag are unrelatable to me. Namely people saying things like “I’m so done with Rick because he did this awful thing.” And...I don’t get it? Like, it was immediately obvious from day one that he is a bad person.
In the very first episode he gets so drunk he builds a neutrino bomb and threatens to drop it on the city. He gets his grandson to shove megaseeds up his butt to smuggle through customs because he doesn’t want to do it himself. He’s manipulative and selfish (and fun to watch). As the narrative progresses we learn that he is a deeply traumatized man that has to learn to love people again after tremendous loss, and while learning to do that he is still an awful human being with too much power who uses that trauma as an excuse to be really shitty to other people. But, every time he does something bad I don’t think: “this character has personally wronged me.” He’s a vehicle that drives the story, not a real person. So, I dunno... it’s odd to me when people get angry about his shit behaviour.
I’m not saying I don’t relate to fictional characters. I relate to the struggles with mental health, as I was an awful person in my twenties who hurt people through my actions, whether I realized it or not. I got treatment and therapy. So I like watching Rick slowly get there while kicking and screaming. I want to see this character grow and fail and grow and fail again. R & M would be a boring show to me without that conflict.
I love it when canonically Pan character because hi me too
WIP Wednesday Thursday
When Morty approaches the table his drunk grandpa is slumped over, the man groans. “M-Morty, I thought I said-”
“I need your help,” Morty interrupts, sliding in the chair across. He glances around furtively. Fantasy themed taverns make him anxious.
“Bi-big surprise there,” Rick mocks, belching halfway through his sentence. He pulls a flask out of his lab coat and Morty resists rolling his eyes because really? They’re in a tavern. “W-what’d you fuck up this time?” He takes a sloppy gulp of his drink.
Morty picks at his nails and keeps his eyes cast on the table. There’s a light sticky film on it that makes him wince slightly. “What- what do you know about- I might be in a time loop?” He shakes his head as if to dislodge how crazy that sounds. “I- we already did this and then I- Rick, I think I died.”
He stares down at his hands and remembers what they looked liked. Blistered and burned.
When he looks up he finds Rick staring at him, half his brow cocked. “A time loop,” the man states flatly, and Morty braces himself for an incoming rant on the intricacies and stupidity of time travel. “J-Jesus Morty, you’re really that desperate for me to come back?”
Morty’s hands curl into fists and he pulls them off the table, hiding them in his lap. The reminder of how far Morty would go for Rick- for a Rick that apparently wasn’t even his- still stings.

Eh, fuck it.
Rick and Morty: Peaky Blinders AU
S2e4: Total Rickall – Took you long enough, Rick.
This episode is another fantastic example of Rick not being in control of the situation. Morty saved the day that time.
A bunch of Miami Morty doodles because I love him with all my heart. He definitely dresses like Paris Hilton in the early 2000s, I mean have you seen him? Oh and yeah he still uses an old flip phone because it’s cuter. Special mention to the “stop being poor” bathing suit💕
Cheerleader Morticia 😤 because she’s an absolute cutie

Looking at this image now, the contrast between Rick's incredible, elaborate crow witch outfit and Morty looking like...that...cracks me up.

Why haven’t we gotten a Rick and Morty body swap episode yet? It would be entertaining as hell 😅😅
When you make the most self indulgent female Rick.
My only actual fem Rick and she's an old west/yallternative goth (probably spent too much time watching firefly xD)
Rochelle does interdimensional parcel services (not outside the realm of bounty hunter or theif) for old ranchers around her dimension. She rolls into a local tavern to drink and people go to her for things the planet doesn't offer them and she happily finds it for em for a price.
