Rick and Morty New Drama Adventures Cover Picture

Rick and Morty New Drama Adventures is a crossover fanfic between Rick and Morty and the Total Drama series made by CMR Rosa.

Morty Smith has always had a hard time making friends in school, and his grandpa Rick certainly didn't help any. All of that was about to change when one day, something extraordinary happened, something more unbelievable than all of his dimension-hopping adventures...he made some normal friends. Now Morty just has to worry about keeping them safe as they begin to get themselves wrapped up in all sorts of otherworldly mishaps and hijinks. Has a Archive of Our Own page.

The story is ongoing.

This story has examples of:

  • A-Cup Angst: Summer. Though its hard not to after Lindsay hugs her
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • The first part of chapter 2, "Breakfast Building Friendships", focuses on Kitty and the relationship she has with her own group of friends at school and her family life. Kitty's home life contrasts to the Dysfunctional Family that Morty is used to.
    • Chapter 5, "Meeting the Smiths", focuses on Beth and her first time meeting Kitty, the first friend other than her father that Morty has made in a long time.
    • Chapter 6, "Tales of the Drunken Rick", focuses on the characters of Bridgette and Courtney as they start hearing the rumors about Rick and Morty.
    • Chapter 7, "Summertime", focuses on Summer's struggles with popularity as she joins Heather's cheerleading clique.
  • Action Girl: After her first adventure with Rick and Morty, Kitty begins regularly joining the two on their whacky adventures. Rick at first doubted her abilities, but Kitty quickly proved that she could hold her own and shoot just as good as the rest of them. Kitty isn't afraid to face off against terrifying alien creatures if it means keeping her friends alive (and getting that great selfie)!
  • Academic Alpha Bitch: Courtney is shown to be the best academic in school, and she knows it. She takes her classes very seriously, but, as can be seen in Chapter 7 "Summertime", Courtney is very ambitious and takes it upon herself to solve her friend's problems by suggesting to Bridgette that Rick be institutionalized or arrested to "protect the poor children".
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Courtney in canon was certainly a control freak, and hostile when she knew she'd been screwed over. In this fic however, she is openly hostile to others with little reason, trying to butt in to others problems without being asked, and talks about having someone's grandfather sent to an institution or worse based on rumours. Though to be fair on the last one, she has a very good reason to be concern about Rick and the danger he brings.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: Because backstories of the characters from two different television shows are blended so that they all grew up in a similar location and attended the same school with one another.
  • Age Lift: Inverted The Total Drama characters are younger then their canon counterparts in this story. In the show, every character was introduced at 16 years old, while in Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race, according to Word of God, Geoff, Owen, and Noah are 19 years old in the show, revealing 3 years has passed between Total Drama Island and the later seasons. The author aged down all the character from the first 3 seasons by 4 years, so every Total Drama character from said seasons are 15 years old in Rick and Morty New Drama Adventures. He also aged down the characters from Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race: Emma was 21 in Ridonculous Race while Devin, Carrie, and Kitty was 18, while in Rick and Morty New Drama Adventures Emma is 17 while Devin, Carrie, and Kitty are 14.
  • Alpha Bitch: In Chapter 7, "Summertime", it is shown that Heather is the alpha bitch of the school. She's pretty, captain of the cheer squad, and looks down at all the other girls, including her own friends!
  • Alternate Universe Fic: The whole premise of this fanfiction is an alternate universe that combines Rick and Morty and the Total Drama series. Characters from both shows make up the primary and supporting casts.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Rick to Kitty's parents in chapter 2. And Beth and Jerry when they first meet Kitty in chapter 5, though unlike the Rick example, Beth and Jerry are at least trying to be nice to the first real friend their son has had in years that wasn't Rick. They simply have a hard time hiding their surprise that Morty's new friend just so happened to be a pretty girl.
  • Broken Masquerade: Zigzagged.. This is how most people that see Rick and Morty's adventures that know about them. But those that don't are only rumors, until they see it for themselves.
