Here’s my thing on shipping, I am perfectly happy with it as long as the two characters involved aren’t defined by it and it only. Leo and Donnie are not at all and neither are April and Karai. Maybe you can make an argument for April, but she isn’t, Donnie is more defined by it than she is to be honest. And Karai you cannot at ALL convince me about, her story is more defined by Shredder and Splinter than Leo. Neither girl strikes me as only existing to give Leo and Donnie a girlfriend and from what we’re already seeing, Renet won’t either.
