Imagine meeting your clone boyfriend’s “brother.” He had told you long ago about their history and their creation but none of it mattered to you. He was his own person, whoever he “came” from didn’t matter to you. But the turtles had never stopped looking for the clones and it was only a matter of time before they caught up to each other. And it was only a matter of time before they found out about you…But in this case, the clones approached their “brothers”. They were being hunted and needed help…and you would need protection.
You can tell that Leonardo’s twin doesn’t trust him. It’s the way he looks at him, always eyeing his weapons and hands. The way he holds himself around him, ready to fight if needed. You could tell. And Leonardo could too, choosing to stand slightly in front of you as he stared back at his brother. He had told you about everything that had happened between them, so you understood it. But neither of them had said a word and, honestly, it was getting a little weird.
“Who is she?” He finally asked.
You could tell your boyfriend didn’t want to answer him but he certainly couldn’t ignore the question.
“A friend. She needs to stay, to keep those…things away from her while we deal with our little issue.” He replied, glancing at you.
“I don’t think-”
“I don’t care! I’m not asking and she’s staying!”
You had to act quickly before things escalated. Placing a gentle hand on his arm, you looked up at your boyfriend. Words weren’t necessary, you had long since perfected the art of silence. Leronardo looked back at, instantly calming at your touch. And his brother seemed to realize that “a friend” had been a lie.
“I…apologize. Of course she can stay.”
Donatello was acting like everything was okay. Standing tall, arms crossed, and casually talking about security measures. But you knew him well enough to see past the cool act and pick up the little things. Like the way she eyed every exit, when he wasn’t looking ast the security cameras. Or the way he wouldn’t leave your side, his tail curled around your waist. And the way he stared at the “others” as if daring them to come anywhere near you. He had always been the jealous type…but with his twin around, it seemed even worse. Perhaps said twin noticed this, finally asking
There was an implication with the way he said it and Donatello bristled with pride, taking your little hand in his.
“Yes. Quite close in fact.”
That was all that was said about the matter but it was more then enough.
Raphael was scared. Not just of the things that had been chasing and hurting them (would they hurt you? He didn’t want to chance it) but if being here. Of being with them. Bad things happened whenever their “brothers” were around and he hated it. Raphael wanted to be left alone. He wanted you to be left alone. And most of all…he didn’t want his twin anywhere near you. He had allowed the other one (purple meant he was Donatello’s other right? He seemed smart) look over your minor wounds but his twin wouldn’t be anywhere near you. Raphael was making sure of it.
“What’s the big red creep’s problem?” He said to himself.
Raphael growled, taking a step toward him until you stepped between them, hands on one of his.
“Raph! It’s alright, let’s just go over here, okay?”
The other him seemed to get it after that, or at least a sense of it. And you lead him away, speaking softly to your giant boyfriend.
Michelangelo actually didn’t mind his twin. Teasing him was fun and hitting him was even more fun! But this? This wasn’t fun at all. He hated being here, trapped in this penthouse a while they all tried to figure out what to do about those creepy robots. At least he had you here, though, so it wasn’t totally unbearable. At least, until he noticed the looks you were getting. His brothers were used to seeing you sitting on his lap, whispering something to him as you both giggled…but the others? Not so much. His own twin seemed the most confused. Several times, he almost said something but he always held back…until he couldn’t anymore.
“Are you…like…you know?” He asked.
“Yup!” Michelangelo replied, wiggling his tongue.
He was… shocked maybe? But Michelangelo went on his merry way, whispering in your ear as his twin glanced back.
The twins wouldn’t get it of course. What on earth (or any other planet for that matter) could yuou see in the clones? But what they or anyone else had to say didn’t matter, it never had. All that mattered was what the two of you had together…🖤🖤🖤🖤
Briar being the best baby. Sleeps through the night, whimpers more then the screams, and is freaking adorable. “She’s so precious…”
Tantrums are very rare and only when she us genuially upset. Like Raphael leaving for long periods and the nightmares she seems to have. “It’s okay, baby…you’re okay…”
She has a little corner in your bedroom (at least for now) with her baby bed, all her toys, and her stuffed animals.
Her favorite stuffed animal goes everywhere with her and God help you all if it is lost. She looks so absolutly miserable and it just breaks everyone’s heart. “Stuffie! I want stuffie!”
Everyone likes to hold her. It becomes common for the family to be hanging out together and occasionally pass her around taking turns to hold her. “Go to Mama, Briar! Go to Uncle Mikey!”
Sucks/chews on the ends of their bandanas so the guys have to watch out for it when they hold her. “No, no, no, baby! That’s a no no.”
It takes Briar a little while to learn how to walk. Maybe it’s because she was born premature, maybe it’s due to the time she spent in the dump (Raphael will always shake with anger when he thinks of this) but it still just takes a little. Once she does, oh boy!
Follows Mommy and Daddy everywhere they go. Going to the kitchen? Me too! Bathroom break? I could use one! If she can’t follow them, she’ll toddle after another member of the family or wait at the door. “…Mommy…Unca Mikey!”
It’s the same for when she starts talking. It takes a little but once she does, she is learning all of the words. The turtles have to start being careful with what they say around her because she starts picking up stuff real quick.
First words are Dada, Mama, Unca (she meant to say Uncle), Turtle (her favorite of the stuffed animals), and Night-night (Mikey says it to her every night, cries when she says it back), and No.
Briar doesn’t like pacifiers (though she will give them to others) and prefers to suck on her tail when it suits her. Her first “no” was actually when Leo tried to give her pacifier back.
She spends a lot of time with the turtles and has little things she does with each of them. “Does baby want to go with her uncle? Yeah?”
Mediates with Leo. It starts by accident with Briar wandering in while he’s deep in mediation. Nothing she does can “wake him up” so she ends up snoozing on his lap instead. It’s the cutest sight before Leo’s eyes and it soon becomes their thing. Leo mediates, Briar naps on his lap. “Hello there, Briar.”
Cooks with Mikey. Safe stuff of course, because he would never endanger little baby. Briar loves fruits so Mikey does a lot of stuff with that and of course, everyone thanks Briar for the delicious snacks! “Mmm! Delicious, yeah baby?”
Donnie is all about her education. He uses her massive stuffed animal colledction to teach her their names, their sounds, and fun facts about them. He’ll often carry her around, pointing things out to her and teaching her about them. He also watches Bill Nye with her (she screams along with the theme song every time) and sneaks her pop tarts behind mom and dad’s back. “That’s an elephant. They’re very intelligent, like you, and they…”
TV time! The whole family gets together for this, piling on the couch and passing around snacks as they watch Briar’s favorite things. She loves, loves, loves Disney films! Especially Sleeping Beauty, Moana, and The Little Mermaid. Mikey will often entertain her with Disney songs. “What can I say except you’re welcome! You’re welcome!”
Grandpa Splinter telling her the stories he told the baby turtles. Japanese fairy tales and stories of her father and uncles when they were babies. She is always really calm with him, Splinter just mellows her out. “Once upon a time, my little one…”
Shadow puppets! Briar loves them and Master Splinter is super, super good at them. They make her giggle non stop and clap her little hands, it’s super cute. “Another!”
She has an old tape of classic baby songs like “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and “Three Blind Mice.” “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” is her favorite and she likes it played before she goes to sleep.
Auntie April and Uncle Casey are the best. They both get whatever she needs no matter what time it is. Casey doesn’t spoil her as much as the others do but he’s super protective and always willing to babysit. April helps out a lot, especially when the turtles are out on patrol and it’s just Y/N. They watch Disney movies and play dress up (Briar has Moana’s necklace and if she let’s up wear it, that’s a big compliment. Raph wears it as lot.). “ Oh, thank you baby! I feel so pretty!”
Speaking of patrol, Briar doesn’t get it. Why is Daddy leaving? Why is everyone else leaving too? Why can’t she go (Raphael is dreading having this conversation when she’s older)? It’s one of the few times she has a bit of a melt down. Then she’s right back to her happy self the moment Daddy is home, wiggling around to be picked up and cuddled. “Daddy! Daddy, Daddy!”
They will, however, start ninja sneaking out of the Lair to avoid her screaming. It’s painful for everyone involved. “Did she see us??” “I don’t think so…”
It breaks Raph’s heart when she starts getting bigger and older but he doesn’t have to worry. Baby Briar is still a little Daddy’s girl!
This is part one of three, part two coming soon! I’d like to thank @chubbygoddess22 for helping me out. Briar is her creation and she was my co-writer with this one!
Hey guys! I’ve been really quiet online due to academy taking most of my time. I found a couple hours of free time tonight to scratch together something fun. I’ve been feeling really tired ever since school started and want to nap and sleep all the time. Of course I projected that on my favorite victim. Hopefully Raph will learn to never nap on the couch after this!
I have no idea why I did them in my free time, instead of sleeping (smthing I really need right now XD) I’m in my tmnt phase again, so… here’s some humanized cool turtles! I think they’re from the 2014/2016 movies versions..? I’ve watched those movies in loop for a week or so ahahah I totally memorized them ( ˘͈ ᵕ ˘͈♡)
Is hard to say goodbye to a show that made me meet so many people, all of they nice, funny and very friendly. Even, thank to the turtles I realized of what I want in my life, draw, draw for ever and ever. Because withou it I don’t know what I’d do. TvT I have a dream, and I want to make it come true. :D
Is not the end, my friends. Because everybody will still here. At least, I’m still here. XD
Although I had sketched this out, the amazing and talented @arishynya lined it out for a switch around meme (…that was never finished sadly). And now after 7 months I finally decided to color it because I wouldn’t want this adorable drawing to be forgotten.
