Rönesans İtalya’da, Floransa’da başladı. 15. ve 17. yüzyılları içine alan bu dönem, hümanizm ruhunun yükselişine ve klasik Yunan ve Roma geçmişinin yeni bir gözle ele alınmasına tanıklık etti. Bu dönemde, eskiden hünerli zanaatkârlar olarak görülen sanatçılar ilk kez üstün bireyler konumuna yükseltildiler ve yaratma yeteneklerinden dolayı övüldüler. Her ne kadar Kilise toplum üzerinde büyük bir etkisi olmayı sürdürse ve sanatların büyük hâmisi olarak kalsa da seküler ilgilerin artması, klasik antikiteden esinlenen sahneler isteyen zengin aristokratların artan himayesiyle sonuçlandı. Sanatçılar klasik sanatı örnek alarak insan suretini en yüce değer olarak ele alan görsel dili kusursuzlaştırdılar. Doğa, insan anatomisi ve perspektif kuralları Rönesans sanatçıları tarafından oldukça ayrıntılı bir şekilde çalışıldı. Figürler eskiden gerçekçi olmayan bir fon üzerinde “yüzüyor” gibi görünüyorken, artık gerçek bir ağırlık ve yer duygusuyla çizilmeye başlandılar.
April and I had just gotten out of our final class for the day, dance. We both liked the class, the difference was that she’s good at it and I’m not. We had to perform a salsa dance as a final grade for the end of the quarter, but there was just one problem. I had no sense of rhythm! I could barely manage to tap my foot to the beat whereas April could get through the whole routine no problem! We had been practicing for weeks now and nothing! I still sucked and April’s grade was going to suffer for it. I let out a loud groan as we entered the lair. Walking over to the couch, I face planted onto its cushions. Donnie and Raph were in the kitchen cleaning up after one of Mikey’s experimental lunches, they exchanged a confused glance before Raph walked over.
“Rough day?” I turned my head to look at him, pouting. We had been officially dating for two months as of tomorrow. I don’t know what I expected out of it, but everything between us was the same. The only difference between before and now is we kiss and snuggle and all that good stuff. Oh, and I can openly express my appreciation for his arm muscles.
April pat my back. “She’s having a hard time learning the dance we came up with for our class. It’s our final grade before next quarter so it’s really stressing her out.”
“Hey, Raph is a pretty good dancer. He could totally help you out.” If looks could kill, Donnie would be dead. I sat up and looked at my man.
“Donnie doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Isn’t that right, bro?” It sounded more like a threat than a question. Donnie simply avoided eye contact and went back to deep cleaning the kitchen.
Hi! I haven't seen many of these types of requests around but could you do one with the boys and their S/O being a POC? Thank you and I really like your blog
As a person of color myself, this makes me so happy! I’ve actually been meaning to write something like this before so I hope this is what you’re looking for! (Some of this is off my own background too)
As for Leo, I feel like he would be so curious about his S/O’s culture. He’d want to know everything there would be to know especially to impress her. Another thing is that I feel like Leo would take an unusual fascination in how she cook. He’d try anything she’d make for him and enjoy all the different flavors that were in each dish and would want to learn how to make it himself too. One last thing is that Leo’s would take a vested interest in his S/O’s passion for activism within her community. He’d listen intently when she’d tell him about something that happened to her or something that’s happening in the world currently and how she wanted to get involved. He’d be a bit uneasy if she wanted to go join a protest but he’d respect her decision to want change. He’ll probably be on the rooftop watching the protest to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Raph’s S/O would definitely be confident in herself and Raph really loves that about her. She’d tend to take at least one day a week for personal care things such as wash day (which Raph thoroughly enjoys). For some reason, I can see Raph being really interested in wash day. She’d go into the bathroom for like 3 hours and emerge still working on her hair. He’d sit/stand next to her as she worked on moisturizing her hair and after a while, he may try and help too. The two may clash because of their strong stances on just about everything but at the end of the day, they’d make up and act like nothing happened.
I feel like Donnie would learn his S/O’s native language whether she knows it or not just so he can speak it. If she does speak it, they could freely talk without anyone actually knowing what they were saying (much to his brothers’ annoyance). And if she doesn’t, he’d want to teach just because of how fun it was for him to learn it. His S/O would be a bit more street smart than Donnie so she could definitely get her hands on chemicals that he needed for his experiments which she’d help him with. Donnie would make a conscious effort to make sure he never says something offend to her and like Leo, he’d be sensitive to things that were going on in her community. The two of them just really compliment each other so well.
Last (but not least) Mikey is just a sponge ready to soak up everything there is to know about her. He’d want to know about the music she listened to, the types of foods she ate, and just anything that he thought was different. Like Leo, he’d really want her to cook. He’d eat just about anything she put in front of him. I feel like their music interests would be similar but she’d get him to listen to R&B a bit more. Mikey would be the one to accidentally say something that may be a bit offensive but he’d apologize profusely when he say that it upset/pissed her off. He’‘d then make sure he’d never say it or anything in same vein of it again which she’d appreciate greatly.
The turtle planted himself in a chair… repeatedly the clicking and flashing noise… it made him nervous. Really nervous. It felt like someone was taking photos of him. He hates photos. Everything about them just give him a horrible feeling in his stomach.
His body starts twitching..l jerking itself back and forth… is this what the restraints were for? He could have sworn they told him this was going to be as unpainful as possible….
Yet he felt like something bad was gonna happen… something terrible. His breathing picked itself up… maybe the flashes were doing something to him? We’re they harming him? What is this!? What are they doing this!? What were they doing!
Now this sent off some reflects he jerked himself back and forth pulling at the restraints as hard as possible. He had to get out of here! He knew something was gonna happen! He has to get out of here NOW! He needs to save his brothers… NOW-
He felt a pinch in his neck… he instantly relaxed against the chair his breathing slowing down. He could feel his heart beat, and hear it.
After a minute of calming down, the sound of something walking from behind him fillled his ears then A deep voice said to him “do you know your name?” This voice echoed in the room.
The turtle shook his head. Yes
“Do you know what you are”
The turtle shook his head. No
“Do you know your objective?” This voice a bit more serious than the first two times.
Did he know his objective?
He shook his head…
“Perfect…” the voice started walking away from him “keep him in here for a while to keep him…” the voice paused as if looking for the right word. “Perfect….” he finished off. The sound of something metal shutting filled the room. Then silence
