I keep seeing humans are weird posts going around and talking about things like our ability to domesticate animals and all that but I have yet to see a single post on human reactions to music Like our brains process songs so uniquely Music literally affects our emotions And we will turn anything into music given the chance so long as something in the sound is slightly rhythmic In my opinion it would be really interesting if our capabilities with sound and music were what made us strange to alien races
When will the film be released? Sometime this summer!
Is the film done? Yep!
Then why not post it now? We’re submitting the film to film festivals, and some of them have rules about putting the film online. We just want to make sure we have enough time to run it through the festival circuit, but we are eager to share it with you as soon as we can!!
How much will it cost to watch it? Free!
Where will you upload it? Vimeo and/or Youtube - but don’t worry, we’ll post about it here, and on our facebook!
Can I share it once it’s online? Yes! BUT - please do not share by downloading and reuploading the film to your facebook/tumblr/instagram/youtube/etc. That’s stealing. To share it, copy and paste the link (that we will provide!) or use the reblog button on Tumblr or the share button on Facebook! Thank you!
How long is the film? A whopping 4 minutes and 5 seconds :)
Can you make it longer? No, this is a student film made by two people - Beth and Esteban were solely responsible for all of the visual aspects of the film, including storyboards, character design, character and set modeling, texturing, rigging, camera layout, animation, set dressing, lighting, rendering, and compositing. That’s a lot of work for two people! Plus, as a thesis film for our college program, there was a required time limit.
Will there be a sequel? Slow down! We haven’t even released it yet!
Will it have subtitles/will it be dubbed in my language? There is no dialogue, so there won’t be any need for subtitles or dubbing.
What are the characters’ names? Sherwin (red hair) and Jonathan (dark hair). And sometimes we call the Heart Shirley :)
How old are they? Around 13 or 14
Did you change Jonathan’s ethnicity? Yes! While we were designing the characters, our only consideration was that Jonathan’s eyes be (dreamy) blue. But when we got into production, we made a few adjustments so that Jonathan was mixed Latino. Esteban was born and raised in Mexico, and we wanted to give an extra personal touch to the character.
Can I draw fanart of the characters? Sure! We’d love to see it if you don’t mind sharing it with us!
Are you still accepting Kickstarter donations? No, our Kickstarter campaign ended in December. However, if you would like to donate for festival submission fees, we have put a donate button in the sidebar of our tumblr page! There are no rewards attached to these donations, though, so don’t feel obligated!!
Will the Kickstarter rewards still be available to buy? It’s pretty likely that we’ll open an online store to buy t-shirts and prints, so we’ll let you know if/when that’s available! Thank you for your interest!
Thank you for your support! If you have any other questions, please let us know! <3
hey! here it is! that fic rec list i said i was gonna do for 200 followers, and yet here i am…at 473 followers HAHAHAHA just a liiitle late there – seriously tho, thank you all! this is such a chill and supportive community~
just a couple notes on the list: i decided to narrow it down to 30, which made things more difficult than i expected(there’s just soo many good ones, guys!); i didn’t want to include more than two fics from a single writer; i included series, but only if the stories were interconnected; for a couple of the series that didn’t have overall summaries i just used the summary from the first fic in the series, and one fic didn’t have a description at all, so i ended up using the first sentence, since it seemed to fit; these are in completely random order.
some of these are obvious picks (basically classics), but hopefully you’ll find something new or interesting! i absolutely love every one of these! thank you to all the writers for being so amazing, and bringing me so much joy (and tears) with these fics!!
When Rick captures a powerful being from a demonic dimension - a demon with the ability to devour thoughts - Morty’s consciousness is pulled into the demon’s cage. Rick must go in after him before Morty’s consciousness is completely consumed. But this isn’t what the inside of the cage should look like. And if Rick wants to save Morty, he’ll have to survive in a place where paths are unclear and monsters manifest.
Rick knew his own mind was complex. But he wasn’t ready for this.
That night, they’d narrowly escaped a mob of pissed-off mafiosos that Rick owed money.
Morty laid his head on the old man’s thigh as they drove, enjoying the quiet and the feel of Rick’s delicate fingers through his bleach-blond hair.
“With this much cash, the universe is our oyster, MoOURGHty!” Rick exclaimed.
“This Morty has seen everything… but has yet to feel the warmth of a loving touch.”
Three eye Morty has been through hell. After his parents divorce, Summer running away and Rick dying of a heart attack, Morty takes Ricks portal gun and goes on the run. He becomes a hitman on an alien planet just to get by. But what happens when years later he’s offered a ton of money to kill a Rick that he eventually falls for?
Right before leaving for college, Morty confesses that he’s attracted to Rick, and Rick turns him down flat. Only, Rick can’t stop thinking about it. They both look for answers through interdimensional travel, alcohol and experimentation. Plus, with Morty returning home for Thanksgiving break, they’re going to have to face each other.
In a panel, Justin Roiland said that Beth “fetishizes the extraordinary” and said something else to the effect that Beth wants Morty to be extraordinary like her father, and values it above anything else. This, coupled with wives commonly responding with tolerance and forgiveness when they find out their spouses molested their child, made me think Beth might not actually throw Rick out if she were to discover them.
So here’s a fic about all the fucked up shit that implies, undercutting an otherwise fairly senseless story about Rick and Morty’s relationship.
“You d-don’t have a clue w-what love is, Morty,” Rick tells him. “You’re not c-capable of loving anything b-besides yourself and, and your c-creepy little stuffed animals.”
There’s something about the way Rick says this, something hollow and dead that tells him Rick isn’t lying or trying to get back at him for lashing out. The wild anger has dissipated. And if Rick isn’t saying this because he’s mad at Morty…
…Then he’s saying it because he really believes it.
C-622 Morty runs through the wrong portal, and because the universe loves dramatic irony, he ends up in a college dorm room where Rick and Stanford are roommates. Unfortunately (or fortunately??) Rick takes a liking to him.
Overly intoxicated, Rick comes onto Morty, leaving the two at odds. Unknown to Morty, his decision on how to deal with Rick will drastically alter the future, creating two alternate realities, and two possible endings.
Morty shifted nervously, unable to meet the eyes of the man who looked so much like his grandfather, “W-what can I-I-I get for $85?” Morty pulled a wad of crumpled bills from his jeans, trembling from the adrenaline of what he was asking.
A tell-tale grin curved the blue haired man’s lips into a predatory smirk before he leaned down, smoothly pocketing the bills, his breath tickling the shell of Morty’s ear, “48 minutes of whatever the fuck you want.”
As much of an asshole as Rick was, as manipulative and cruel and downright hurtful as the man could be, especially to him, Rick wasn’t a rapist, and he never had been. If Morty said stop, if he told Rick to stop touching him and to get off, he knew his grandpa would listen. He knew Rick would walk away from him. And that’s precisely why he’d never say it. No matter how much it hurt, no matter how badly Morty wanted to shove him away and tell Rick to fuck off, he couldn’t. Because if he did, the older man would listen, and that’d be the end.
Rick stood swaying slightly in the doorway to Morty’s room, silhouetted by the hallway light behind him, a gaunt looming figure framed by the door. He blinked blearily, colours and shapes fuzzing and blending together, reaching a hand out to steady himself on the doorframe. His heart was thudding in his chest, and he reached instinctively for his flask even though he really didn’t need it. A quick shake revealed it was empty anyway. Of course it was.
Rick and Morty AU - Dimension F-212 : Rick is a world-famous chef, owning his own exclusive restaurant and widely known for some of the best food in the galaxy. Morty is a young, talented, prodigy chef, making food that is so delectable it inspires powerful emotions in those who consume it. Rick takes Morty under his wing as his apprentice, and between crazy ingredient-hunting adventures, and long, hot days in the restaurant kitchen, Morty develops a crush on his selfish, chain-smoking, gorgeous chef grandfather.
