something real quick that i wanted to get off my mind:
a lot of people go between extremes on here of “omg rick loves his family so much hes just grumpy” and “rick is just an abusive nihilist and doesnt care about anything” and dont understand that…. hes both?
if you can read through his (transparent) defensive self sabotaging around his family, its fucking obvious that hes terrified of making any kind of attachment or connection with them, and continues to do awful shit to his family to protect himself. hes a huge dick, sometimes moreso than usual when hes put under any kind of pressure. and sometimes he DOESNT care about anything, because hes crazy depressed - and hes seen and been through such extreme trauma that he doesnt give a shit when something he deems “minor” is happening to someone.
but … he still does care about his family and how they are effected at the end of the day, as much as he tries to remove himself. that doesnt make his self sabotaging lashing out excusable though. it doesnt make what his family goes through excusable. and he knows this.
IM TRYNA COMPLETE THIS HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT BUT I CANT GET THE WAY JIMIN HELD KOOKIES NECK OFF MY MIND WUT DO I DO
