    Summary

    R owns a small record store and lives within the ritualistic parameters of a carefully controlled daily life. Ricks on the Citadel generally have too much idle time to think, so he buys weed from a pair of squatters, gets high on quality shit, and vibes to good sounds in his shop – because he can really fuckin' start to overthink shit if he can't find a way to "turn up, tune in, and drop out".

    He enjoys the well-adjusted good life until he meets a Morty who takes his meticulously constructed lifestyle for a spin.

    This love story is a slow burn 4/20 sin songfic – with heavy themes of identity, mental-health, ritualistic coping mechanisms/escapism, and flawed characters who don't get an ex machina cure. Also Citadel society HC's. Rated E for Later chapters.

    Summary

    "Nobody likes it here. About one in every five doctors might be here to help the patients, the rest are here to study the patients.

    But you know what? You need this, we all need this. We have to try. It’s not going to be easy, it's not going to be pleasant. It's not going to be fun, or about making friends; or even, hell, escaping—though all of those might happen. Who knows?

    Being here is about one thing, and it’s the most important thing of all: getting better."

    With only three months left to pass the CPA exams, he seeks the help of an exacting Summer intern with unorthodox methods for keeping him locked-on and accountable.

    It said something about Toni’s life that she had an established system in case of kidnapping and torture, and while there had been tweaks, it was still basically the same as from when she was a kid.

    Summary

    Every day, sometime in the morning I will be in the park sitting on a bench next to a huge old oak tree. When sitting on this bench, I’d like to watch the way the clouds dance in the sky, high above the ground. I also like to make shapes out of them. Just like what I did when I was a young child.
