Can you tell me more about your tmnt crystal gems au? Like gem placement, headcanons, just whatever you feel like sharing! I really loved the fusion posts and I've been thinking about the AU a lot I lowkey (highkey) want to draw some fan art whenever you get around to telling us about the designs a bit! You're super talented keep up the awesome work!!
Hello! It took a while to get back to this bc I hadn’t quite
worked out the gems for everyone. I have now, though! Because you reminded me
also if anyone wants to get technical about the meanings or whatever
of the gems I picked please don’t, I’m a lowly fic writer and did minimal
research and don’t care to get super deep about things, thanks.
Alright, so I wrote that one ficlet a while back about Donnie and April, and they were the only two I had for sure down with what gems they were. (I’ll recap them tho, in case folks missed it.)
Donnie = Purple Pearl. (because of reasons.) Gem placement is his forehead.
April = Yellow (or was it gold?) Tourmaline. Gem placement is her hip.
Raph = Pyrope. Gem placement is the back of his right hand.
Leo = Blue Iolite. Gem placement is between his shoulder blades.
Mikey = Jasper. (like, similar to canon Jasper, but smol like Amethyst ended up.) Gem placement is his chest, also like Amethyst.
Casey = (tentatively, may change if I feel like it) Onyx. Gem placement is his left palm.
Splinter = Fire agate. Gem placement is the same as Mikey’s.
They essentially move from planet to planet once the whole crew is together and have interstellar travel once again, staying outside the range of the crumbling empire’s reach, but mostly hang out on one specific planet that’s got very little sentient life on it. Very relaxing for a collection of people who really need to calm down sometimes.
except Casey who is raring to go any time all the time and needs to be stopped
And here’s some descriptions and stuff, because hell yes I’d love fanart pls and thank you:
