How could you do this to Morty?

I got my computer back today. While I was on FF.net, I was looking at some fanfics related to my favourite Pokemon character, Morty. I liked most of them - the most recent was a rather funny one about Morty having a bit of a spat with Norman at a swimming pool. But there was one that really got me riled up. Read it if you dare:

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8201892/1/Crimson-Storm-Road-to-Olivine



This fanfic is the biggest piece of SHIT that I have ever read. I was so mad I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs and smash the computer screen. I even threw the doll I made of Morty at the screen.

Want to know the problem? The fanfic portrays Morty as a rapist! In it, he is a bully who bosses around the other Gym Leaders and threatens to take away Jasmine's virginity and concocts a sinister plan to do it. In short, the fanfic is a total insult. If anything, Morty's character was the one that was raped. The games NEVER portray Morty like that. If anything, Morty's friend Eusine would be more likely to do that, and even he is above that! After all, Morty is the one who keeps him in check.

I sent an angry review to the fanfic. What I didn't send was a desire to beat the writer's brains out.

How could someone do that to Morty? I can understand a lot of other characters, but MORTY? What does he do that is remotely bad? At least in the one Morty has a problem with Norman, even though Norman is a bit of a jerk, he's not a rapist!

I told my mum that I was livid about it. She told me that I shouldn't worry about it, since Morty is just a fictional character. She told me I was panicking about nothing. But I am panicking for a reason. Some idiot fangirl just took a dump on my favourite Pokemon character!

Anyone else feel this angry when their favourite Pokemon character is dehumanised?

    Well, there's your problem :P

    This is why I avoid fan fiction, but also because 90% of it is absolute crap.

    I'm generally not into fanfiction. Heck, look what it did to Twilight...
    (if you don't get it, 50 Shades of Grey was originally a differently-titled thing which I won't bother to read, which was an erotic fanfic of Twilight which focused on...THAT experience)

    Rape fics are surprisingly popular. Almost all of the rape fics seem to be written by immature fangirls. And to them, "rape equals love" because they saw it in a cheap romance novel. The love part sickens me, because rape is supposed to really traumatise a person - not make them love their rapist.

    There's an infamous Lord of the Rings rape fic called Celebrian. It's about Elrond's wife Celebrian imprisoned by orcs. She ends up accepting sexual favours from orcs in exchange for vanilla ice cream that makes her private parts bigger. To make things worse, she has lavender nipples and labia . It is particularly ridiculous since in Lord of the Rings, Elves take rape very seriously. If an Elf is raped, they lose the will to live. Yet in the fanfic Celebrian, the title character enjoys the Orcs giving it to her.
