shocked turtle

Raph Imagine

Imagine having a crush on Raph and staying over at the lair because you didn’t want to stay in an empty living space. You and Mikey get into a playful argument using only memes and he fires off the good old “Go home sweetcheeks, you’re drunk” meme. You hatch the plan that could ruin you forever but you knew it would end the play fight right quick, and you knew you would only come up with the perfect response in an hour or ten. So you put this really stupid plan into action, you get off of whatever seat you were on and forcibly place yourself in Raph’s lap. Ignoring the shell shocked turtle beneath you, you flash Mikey a $1,000 grin.

“Okay, I’m home. Now what?”

So It Begins Lets stop it Before It Gets Out of Hand

So the war begins, yay, another thing we can fight over.

Im just here to at least try to tame it before it gets out of hand already. My friend has already been “attacked” due to this crud.

*sighs*

Alright, i will tell my thoughts on this. And no i dont expect people to agree or to like it, its perfectly okay to have your views, thoughts, and says.

Okay, so on tumblr, even DA I’ve been seeing people saying that the turtles were emotional for just ten seconds. Not true. 

In fact for the the ending you see shocked turtles, emotional turtles, no they wont be sobbing like you guys wanted and expected, but that doesnt mean they dont feel.

They didnt really have time to feel, it happened just so fast that it was big shock.

Imagine seeing your mother, or father get murdered right in front of your eyes… now some people might argue with me that they’d burst into tears, thats true, some people do, but some people go straight into denial or shock.

Which is what the turtles did, they went into shock.

Now i want to point out that April broke down, she did, and her break down effected her powers, well thats what i think. See. 

A bit after, They recovered slightly but not all the way, they were able to run over to Splinter, their father to spend their last moments on earth with him.

Now i want you guys to watch them and analyze them in this gif below

If you go back and rewatch, headphones in your ears you can clearly hear Mikey sobbing, even April.

Mikey Sobbing

Watch that video and tell me that wasnt emotions, please do so.

Yes it was ten seconds, but under these circumstances we should understand that they really didnt have much time to process anything, just that their father died.

But you can see the emotions expressed in those precious moments. 


Now for the ending


Look at these faces…

April even asked “Did that just happened?” She was in total shock, Casey seems like he’s really confused, at least to me, or hes putting on a good poker face.

Right here Leo is just now taking it in, still shocked, as you can tell in his voice.

We can see Raph is freaked out by what happened, Donnie is just in total shock, probably numb right now.

You can see that he’s really sad, hurt, and will probably act as the happy go lucky character that he is, because thats him.

And in the case of the turtles… what exactly were you guys expecting?

The guys will react in different ways, even Casey! 

Lets talk about Casey, he’s not gonna show his emotions, if you can tell he was having a good poker face through the whole thing, for me, when i heard his voice, i could feel his emotions slipping out, though he never expressed them. Think about it, he could of been acting like he did to keep himself calm, and the others as well. 

You guys really dont understand Casey at all if your getting upset over how he acted, its not like Casey to show emotions easily, thats like wanting Raphael to burst into tears crying, but thats not gonna happen, why? Because its not their characters. 

Why not try to stay calm, and realize that things do happen off screen, and no they wont show emotions like going mentally insane or blubbering, also think about the timing of the episode, the creators had to fit all of this in in under an hour, which is hard for them to do sometimes, especially when they want to keep clips or add more and they cant.

Also can we remember patients? Like lets try to wait for season 4 before getting mad about what happened, because season 4 ep 1 could be very emotional, we dont know, lets try to stop getting mad so easily and lets try to clear our minds, and think, really think about these kind of things.

People act in many ways, people do not cry in dire situations that the turtles Casey and April were in, also so many things happened at one time, it can override your emotions to where it numbs you.

Please just understand these things, and just calm down, it really saddens me when i see hate on a character just because they didnt show the emotions you wanted them to show.. Thats not how it works, thats not realistic at all, and the show is aiming for realism. 
Not everything will go the way you planned. Just saying. 

Lets just stop this “fandom war” before it begins to get out of hand.

The finale was wonderful, and even if it wasnt then thats fine to. At times like these we need each other more then ever, because we have a long wait ahead of us, and more emotions then what we can deal with, and I dont know about you guys but I wanna be spreading love and mature discussions then just non stop hate and arguing.

((And again i understand opinions, views, thoughts, i do, and I promise im not trying to change or force my ways on you guys, i just do not wish more hate, or more arguements going around.))

Anyways Ive done my damage.

Send discussions or hate my way, here

Just if your gonna hate, be mature, respectful and intelligent. I dont deal with tolls and BS
