From the Mun: A little note on my Raph

I feel like it seems weird to some people that I don’t play Raph aggressive when it comes to sex.

At least for 2007.. and 12 ..probably others you probably aren’t going to get him aggressive..Maybe a little forceful here and there yeah but not full on dominating- unless its a TRULY established relationship where they’ve had sex several times already. With a few exceptions of course.

My reasoning: He cares. If you’ve seen the way he is with both spike and chompy or the way he treats anything or anyone that he has on that level.. it is much more nurturing and gentle than with his brothers (platonic/canon). He knows how much his brothers can take, they grew up rough housing.

Past that though, his s/o’s are in a different tier, and he values them as precious even if that is one of his brothers. When it comes to the bedroom and not the dojo its different . To that end, the aggressive behavior, if you’re looking to get that out of him, is something that takes communication and time.

this is a bad explanation but thats all ive got

listen i got a rabbit when i was the ripe age of eight years old. originally named him button bc that was my old rabbits name and i was convinced if i just gave him that name the spirit of button would live on in him (rip in peace tiny friend) but after a while he chewed threw the fuckin lawn mower wire so my eight year old self called that sucker chompy. now i dont kno if you kno but rabbits are supposed to live like six to eight years as a pet, and before that button had kicked the proverbial fuckin bucket after a few months so we weren’t expecting the situation we’re currently in. chompy, as it turns out, gives absolutely 0 fucks what any rabbit website says. i am nearly twenty years old and this little dude just wont quit. you bet ur bottom dollar i go out every single mornin rain or shine to let his sorry ass out of the hutch so he can eat the grass, chase the birds and make my mum gnash her teeth and cry bc we cant plant shit bc he’ll straight up just devour any plant he finds. eleven years. this fucker is eleven years old. im pretty sure he’s just running on straight up spite at this point bc everyone i speak to in my family is like ‘is that rabbit still going?????’ you better FUCKIN believe that rabbit is tearin shit up in my back garden to this day. but now im in this situation where i tell ppl i have a rabbit and theyre like ‘ooo whats his name??’ and i, a nineteen year old, have to look them dead in the eye and say chompy. the ridiculous fuckin name i gave him eleven years ago. what a world

Raph’s Growth as Shown by his Pets

I was thinking about Spike and Chompy, and how different they are, and it dawned on me… they really highlight different character traits of Raph in his growing up, or different phases of maturity.

Spike was Raph’s sounding board. Raph was younger and more childish at the start of the series. All of them were. But Raph needed Spike more than Spike needed him, I think. Raph is the most sensitive of his brothers, and he needed a good listener he could say anything to without getting judgement. Spike took care of Raph, in that sense.

By season 4, Raph had grown up a lot. He’d learned to manage without relying on Spike. He learned to control his temper a little better and self-soothe. He started realizing more and more what putting his brothers first really means. He even got to experience romance for the first time.

Then this little guy came along:

Before Spike mutated into Slash, he seemed to exhibit some intelligence and the personality of a teenage boy not unlike Raphael.

But Chompy is a baby. He hatched in Raph’s hand. Instinct may tell Chompy that Tokka is his mother, but otherwise, he believes Raph is the one he needs to cling to. 

Raph has learned to get along just fine without a pet. He’s more mature now, and that’s one of the reasons his owner/pet relationship with Chompy is different.

Raph’s pets illustrate his growth. He relied on Spike and Spike took care of him, but Chompy relies on him so he takes care of Chompy. Raph isn’t some kid anymore who needs a listener because he can’t talk to anyone else. While he still talks to Chompy about his feelings, he doesn’t need to for emotional maintenance. Raph has grown up, and he’s responsible enough to care for a little baby critter that needs him now.   

I have crossed the horizon to find you
I know your name
I may have stolen the heart from inside you
But this does not define you
This is not who you are
You know who you are (Lin Manuel Miranda - Moana)

You know, when I watched the the new TMNT episode of Chompy and the whole thing about Tokka invaded the earth looking for her baby, I couldn’t stop thinking about Moana’s scene of “Know who you are” when it hit my head and said hey it may be a good idea to do an edit ‘cuz this episode has some essence from Moana. So there you have ladies and gentlemen I hope you guys like it
