(As you may have guessed, I bought the new DVD. Now I haven’t seen ‘The Forgotten Swordsman’ yet, but I plan on watching it soon, be it on TV or on the DVD. However, I DID watch ‘Heart of Evil’, and I think it was a wonderfully-done Donnie-centric episode that’s shown the impact of Splinter’s death on him. That’s something I wanted to discuss.)
CAUTION: Spoilers under the cut, so if you haven’t seen the episode and don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read this.

“So, ready to lose?” Karai taunted, unsheathing her tanto. That familiar smirk coming across her face.
“You shouldn’t have said that Karai.” Her opponent calls out from the other side. “Now we know who will win.”
The battleground, the old church hall-room. The building was used by the Shredder as a Foot Clan base for his New York criminal branch, with this room as his throne. But now, with his recent death, the church is now used by the Karai’s Neo Foot Clan. A clan which she hopes to build with the same honor and humanity as her father, Hamato Yoshi.
She knew that it was going to be a difficult and long task. But she is thankful to have some incredible friends that have been by her side, helping her in any way possible.
One of those who is helping her and her goal is the one who saved his life.
When Karai first met Hamato Leonardo, they were enemies. She was trained kunoichi of the Foot and ‘daughter’ of the Shredder. While he was the leader of his brothers of mutant turtles, trained in ninjutsu by their sensei, Master Splinter. Many times they have hurt each other, sometimes unintentionally and other times, mostly by her, personally.
But Leo never gave up on her. Always trying to bring her back home. It was because of him she saw the truth on how twisted the man who kept her away from the truth. It was because of him, who saved her life multiple times. And it is because of him, she is happy.
Leo has his twin katana poised and ready to fight.
The two charge forward, locking their weapons against one another. They break away from each other as Karai goes to strike at Leo’s stomach, but Leo blocks and shoves her back. Leo now goes on the offense.
Karai is light-footed and the most nimble of the two, relying on quick effective strikes and stabs. But is not afraid of taking a few hits. While Leo is bulkier and is more of a heavy-hitter compared to Karai.
Leo goes for a swipe to which Karai side-steps to Leo’s left, she when goes in with a forward stab. Leo deflects Karai’s path, directing her so that she’s facing away from Leo. Karai quickly does a full backflip over Leo before he could react.
For nearly half an hour the two continued their spar against each other, though to them it felt more like a dance. Though while Leo is serious with many of the activities he does, such as training, patrol and especially with combat. But when Karai is around, he can make an acceptances to loosen up.
With Karai before, everything was pretty much a game. None was her favorite than seeing the normally stoic Leonardo squirm and act like an uncomfortable teenage boy with a crush. But since she has become a leader, responsibility was something she needed to understand. To which Leo has been helping her immensely with his own experience. Especially these days, since he now must lead without the guidance of Splinter.
Time to finish this dance. Karai swings suddenly at Leo’s ankles, catching Leo off guard. To which he loses his balance and falls onto his back. He looks up to see Karai’s tanto directly in his sight.
“I win,” Karai said, smug in her victory. But that is quickly turned into shock when Leo tripped her off her feet, to which she lands on top of Leo.
“Did you now?” Leo asked, a smug smile on his face. Karai could huff in annoyance and so she instead decided to continue to lie on Leo’s plastron. Enjoying the moment of silent with her mutant boyfriend.
The two are so close, getting lost into each other’s eyes. Their lips slowly coming closer…
“So… are you guys going to kiss?” A voice called out. Who turns out was a Foot soldier.
Karai and Leo break out of their gaze to see most of the Foot member’s surrounding them. During their spar together, the two became too involved with one another to notice that they have grown a crowd. Even Shinigami was among them, and Karai can tell by her mischievous smile. She, like all the others, are expecting an answer.
Karai gets up on her feet, Leo doing the same. She could not believe that she did not notice them. Blame Leo and that adorable, handsome… oh perfect, now she’s letting it show too easy. It was clear to see that she and Leo have some sort of chemistry, given the way how Leo acts around her like someone with a crush and how she would mostly turn to him, rather than his brothers… Maybe, maybe it’s time to go to the next level.
Leo in the meanwhile has become meek and silent since the question. Because though while the two of them, have become a couple. They have not yet shared it, not his brother’s, the Mutanimals. And it’s the Foot Clan who is the most interested in their relationship. Not that Karai would even show a glimpse of who she can be behind those beautiful eyes…
Leo is drawn away from his thoughts as he is suddenly kissed right on the lips by Karai… in front of the Foot Clan?!
But as quickly he panicked, Leo starts to begin enjoying the kiss. So what if they are watching them kissing, it’s about time they show just how much they care for one another to their allies and friends.
The Clan member’s whoops and cheer as their two leaders kiss. While Shini has a gentle smile on her face, secretly glad that her best friend has someone she loves.
Karai briefly stops kissing Leo and turns to look at her soldiers.
“I believe it’s time for a group activity,” Karai spoke out.
“We’ll give you all a five-minute head start,” Karai spoke in a commander tone. A feeling of dread starts to sweep through all members. She may not be as vicious or cold-hearted as Oroku Saki. But she can knock you out cold until tomorrow evening. Where she will then make you train two hours straight, with no breaks.
“Once those five minutes are up, well.” To scare out the tougher ones, Karai shows out her snake fangs for all to fear. “We won’t sure mercy.”
“And time starts…” Before Karai could say ‘now’, the entire area is clear of all Foot soldiers, except for one.
“Come Karai. You really believe your little ‘threat’ would chase me away from you two love-reptiles.” Shinigami said in an unimpressed tone. She knows that it will take a lot more to move her scared.
“Oh, I know Shini,” Karai confessed, to which Shinigami smirked at hearing her friend confess. “So that’s why we have something a lot worst for you.”
Shini looks confused. What could Karai possible have, worst that a training lesson with her mutant side? However, when she looks at Leo. Her heart took a plunged deep into her stomach.
In Leo’s hand is a small USB. A small USB with a black cat keychain. Her USB.
“I wonder what secrets are in this little deceive.” Karai pondered out loud. Her mocking tone are like fingernails scratching on a chalkboard in Shini’s ears. “Leo, any thoughts?”
“Could be anything.” Leo too pondered in that same mocking voice. Not him too? Is he not supposed to be the honorable one of the two? “I’d think Mikey would be very interested. Wouldn’t you agree, Karai?”
If Shinigami’s heart dropped when she saw Leo holding the USB. Then now it’s completely at a standstill once Leonardo said his name.
What on earth did you do to Leonardo, Karai?
“Now Leonardo…” Shini stuttered. She’s not one to allow herself to be defeatist. But those are some of her most private thoughts in that USB. “You’re not one to expose people’s secrets… are you?”
“Usually I’m not for using people’s weaknesses against their will,” Leo confirmed. “But Karai and I are sure we’d locked this room for our sparring lesson.”
Ah, sewer apples.
“And as you know Shini, only the leaders have the keys to unlock the door.” Karai continued, now just adding salt to the wound.
“I know it couldn’t be us… soooo?” Both Karai and Leo simple stared at the guilty witch.
Nothing but silence fill the room. And with the gaze of two against one, it’s clear who the winners are.
“So… four minutes and twenty-five seconds. I guess I’ll be going…” Shinigami coughed uncomfortable, before jogging out the door, and closing and locking the doors without glancing back.
“… So… How long do you want to keep Shinigami on her toes?” Leo asked once he was sure that it’s just the two of them.
“When she learns not to interfere us,” Karai said, but Leo knows Karai and she will probably continue to torment Shini for at least a month… or two.
“Well, we do have four minutes to ourselves,” Karai smirked at Leo. Getting Karai’s hint, a light blush appears on the turtle’s face.
“What is it you want to do?” Leo asked, curious to know what Karai has in mind.
“Depends. Whose turn is it to sit on a throne?” Karai questioned, as she walks over to the throne chair.
The blush on Leo’s face goes into a dark red. She wants to do that again!?
“Mine…” Leo nervously said, but seeing that smirk turn into a full blown grin. He knows that they are going to be here longer than four minutes.
Day 3 completed!
Oh, Leo, you know Karai is a bad influence. But maybe that’s why you love her so much.
So in my headcanon, Leo is an unofficial leader of the Neo Foot Clan along with Karai and helps teach the younger members to become better fighters.
That’s Day 3 done and dusted. Man, I honestly thought I would be struggling to get Day 1 even up. But I guess my determination to please those who love Leorai and my own love of this pairing is what has me rolling.
Here’s my day 3 entry for Leorai Week. Slowly getting caught up. Hope at least a couple folk like my entries!
“UMPH!” The air rushed out of Leonardo’s lungs as he
slammed into the wall of the dojo. He
looked up as Karai was slowly bringing her leg back from the hard kick she’d
landed against his plastron.
“I thought we were just sparring…” He muttered
“Oh we are… although I may have heard an interesting
story from Mikey today.” Karai remarked.
Leo froze in place, his eyes widened and his lips
puckered. What could he have told her?
He didn’t do anything recently, nothing that would make Karai want to
put him through a wall at least.
“What story would that be…?” He asked his tone
riddled with a nervous flutter.
“Well I didn’t get all the details but something
about you… and a girl, an alien one at that.
Ringing any bells?” As she spoke she closed the distance between them
and threw a swift punch at the turtle’s head as she asked her question. Leo deflected the punch and rolled away from
his opponent trying to create some distance as he searched for the words that
would allay her rage.
“Ohhh that… well um… gyah!” Leo was so distracted he
didn’t even see Karai drop and sweep his legs out from under him. Karai loomed over him, hands on her hips and
her expression one of anger that terrified the young ninja.
“Well… what do you have to say for yourself?” She
“Umm well technically we weren’t dating yet.” He said with a coy expression. An expression which quickly changed to one of
regret as he realized his choice of words was not the right ones. He barely had time to roll to the side and
dodge the ax kick Karai brought down where his head had been situated a moment
earlier. Rising up to his feet Leo threw
a jab at Karai who blocked it effortlessly.
She gripped his fist in her hand and brought it down towards her waist.
“That better not be your best answer.” She said, her
eyes widening signaling she expected a more substantial explanation.
“Ummmm well… you had been sucked into a black hole,
and if I remember correctly she flirted with me first…” Leo said offering an uneasy
and crooked smile. Karai’s brow furrowed
and her lips curled up to one side of her mouth as she considered this. Then without warning she grabbed his wrist,
spinning him and tossing him back against the wall. Before he could recover she was standing in
front of him, one hand placed upon his plastron.
“I suppose under the circumstances I can overlook
that little misstep of yours. So long as
you remember you’re my little turtle, understood?” Her words were becoming
playful, silky, and Leo could do nothing but nod in response.
“Stop standing there like an idiot and put your
hands on my butt.” She commanded
“Oh, um… right. There.” He said shakily as his hands
enveloped her ass and gently squeezed it.
why do you like leorai? not hating, just curious; what appeals to you from this pair?
Omg, that’s a tough question, I’m so used to loving them that I don’t think of it often. To begin with, the way they interact with each other in the show is so special, I like how they start with playing and light flirting and then slowly turn into close friends. Their line is one of my favorites
in the series
‘cause it’s shown greatly how they both grow up and learn some important things about friendship and maybe (!) love.
The reason why I prefer leorai to any other ship in this fandom is their bright and developed storyline. We can see how Leo is the only one to see good in Karai even knowing for sure that she’ll kill him if needed, he is the one to try his best to tell her the truth about Splinter, to help her. Maybe in the beginning it was just a crush of a 15 y.o. boy who saw a rebellious outstanding girl, whom he considered a challenge as well as Karai did. But as the plot went on we saw that Leo cared and worried about her deeply, he wanted her to be safe and sound after everything she’d gone through. I may sound over dramatic, but I guess his crush grew into something bigger. And gosh it did really hurt him to fight her back when she was brainwashed and almost killed his whole family. Now Karai is alright and I’m glad Leo is always ready to help her, to cover her back but more deliberately. Karai has a big influence on him, we saw how she could trick him once (just kidding, we know she did it more than once) using his feelings against him, however, now he has a better control over himself and after all these years our leader in blue can finally put what’s important above what he feels.
As for Karai (I can talk for hours
about her), I like her character development the most. She was looking for entertainment and found the one who she thought could provide it for some time, that’s why I guess she didn’t consider Leo anything but her toy. It just looked so funny to make some green turtle dork do and say stupid things while trying to act all cool and impress her. But when Karai got involved in this never-ending vendetta he became her enemy stubbornly telling her some unbelievable truths. Her entire world was torn apart by the knives of Saki’s lifelong lies and that’s when she finally saw how much Leonardo cared about her, she understood he’d do anything it’d take in order to protect her and she did start appreciating it. She knew she could trust him, that’s why she recognized him while being almost savage (”Serpent hunt” reference). And Karai still trusts him. And cares as well.
(let’s not forget “you’re stupid but adorable”) (let’s not forget this amazingly cute line “not good at saying thank you”) (let’s not forget smoke-bombs) (let’s not forget how impossibly sad was that “wanted to say goodbye”) (let’s not forget “sometimes you don’t have a choice, you think about someone a lot”) (let’s not forget baby Miwa’s reflection in Leo’s eyes when he had to leave her so Shredder could find and adopt her) (let’s not forget “I get such mutants as Karai but space lizards…”) (let’s not forget Karai calling all of the turtles by their full names except for Leo) (let’s not forget all these “thank you”s she’s not so good at saying) (let’s not forget their cool team kicking everyone’s butts) (let’s not forget everything)
The latest episodes have shown us how both of them grew up. They treat each other a whole lot differently from their first meeting, they respect each other now. At the same time they still find time to act dorky just like a few years ago. Love that. Unfortunately, I don’t think (but hope with all my heart) that leorai will ever happen but I’m really grateful to this show for making such a plot for two characters so dear to me. Leo and Karai happen to go through hell during this series but they always manage to find a solution. Maybe because they suffer a lot I want them to be happy, I want them to comfort each other sometimes. They make me feel like love is worth fighting for. They make me feel warmth inside.
Leorai is my true one true pairing, and I can’t expess this feeling in words. There’re so many reasons I love them and I could probably write a lot more.
This was wrong. This was strange and unnatural and wrong. One simply does not come back after dying, not like this, not with all their memories intact. To make matters more complicated, this New York was so very different from the New York in which he’d been killed, as was his body…
… a human body. The body of a young Japanese stranger who couldn’t have been any older than their early twenties.
He hated to admit it but the uncertainty of the entire situation frightened him. As usual the wellbeing of his family remained at the forefront of his mind, and for a while he was beginning to fear fifteen years of his life had been nothing more than a dream. But if that was true, then who was he? What was his name?… who did he belong to?… Was someone looking for him?
Then, at long last, after what felt like days of aimless confused wandering, he found the existence of Karai, and Splinter finally knew the first place to look for answers.
As expected the foot lair was guarded. He could easily assume that claims of being their leader’s long-dead father would grant him either mocking laughter or an assassination attempt, so instead Yoshi claimed to be looking for recruitment as a foot soldier. … He looked young enough to serve as a valuable asset, and assuming the guards would take two seconds to stop mocking his ragged appearance and actually listen to him, he knew he could easily prove his worth.
I’ve been entertaining myself for hours okay hear me out
Older. Splinter. Like 40+ years
He’s already full of sass imagine him as like 80+ years old people don’t give a fuck at that age THE TROLLING AND SASS WOULD BE FANTASTIC
Like ok his hearing isn’t what it used to be but its not THAT bad and Leo is of course being a hovering mother hen and is like “no dad you can’t have another cheese sickle” and Splinter pretends not to hear him like “What? I could not hear you” *opens freezer* “Sensei I’m serious” “You are going to have to speak up my son” *takes huge bite* and Leo just deadpans and you can practically hear him thinking ‘I KNOW you can hear me’
“My eyes may not be what they once were but I can still see that you’re cutting corners on your form! Do it again!”
Or! Imagine that he sometimes takes walks and wanders out of the lair to do whatever and so Leo and Don try to give him a curfew or whatever and he just breaks it and it exasperates them… but Sensei goes “I lived with that for 20 years how do you like it now?” “I may not be as young as I once was but I’m as much of a ninja as I ever was!” *backflips out of the lair* and the looks on his children’s faces range from bemused to ‘oh god please don’t break a hip dad we can’t take you to a hospital if you do’
And they try to make sure he stays healthy so Leo & Don try giving him low-fat cheesesickles and Splinter’s all “what is this crap?” And Mikey goes “Oh my god guys are you TRYING to poison him?!” and makes sure his dad gets the goods aka REAL WHOLE CHEESE.
Picture Leo calling April in exasperation because of Splinter’s antics and she’s all nodding and being serious on the phone but she actually thinks its damn funny and so she puts the phone down during a long rant, walks to a different room and just starts laughing. Because to be honest while she wants Sensei to be safe she totally encourages him being a troll… she’s on both sides of the line as it were… and Leo yells “I can hear you laughing! April com”on!” “I’m sorry Leo but you just sound like a mother hen” “I do not!!”
Or picture him sitting in a chair by himself and the lair is quiet… his sons are out and April and Casey are doing human things on the surface and he’s sitting in a chair just him and his book of renaissance art and he’s got this big magnifying glass so he can see it better … Cute right? But then Raph comes home and finds that he’s fallen asleep in his chair over this book and so Raph puts a blanket over him and turns off the light.
I cant handle this.
Don muttering something and the phrase “cat scan” is said but Splinter only hears the first part and royally freaks out and Raph yells at his brother “Are you TRYING to give him a heart attack?!?” “He was in the other room and his hearings not what it used to be EXCUSE ME FOR ACCIDENTALLY SETTING HIM OFF!”
Picture him happy. Picture him surrounded by his sons and daughters with his art book and cheesesickles and he has that fantastic smile and this look of peace about him (Casey’s taking the picture) and he’s just happy okay? MASTER SPLINTER IS HAPPY.
Bonus: Picture 80+ year old Oroku Saki and he and Splinter go at it with their sword canes and lethal walkers
Shredder’s dentures falling out and he’s like “CURTHS YOU HAMATHOO YOSTTHHII!!” And Splinter goes “WHAT?”
Picture these two in rocking chairs on opposite sides of the same porch being angry old men
“Its your fault Hamato Yoshi! The sun is too hot!”
“Its your fault my feet hurt!”
“Its your fault this chair squeaks!”
And Karai kicks open the door and hands them both drinks laced with sleeping meds because she’s just about DONE with their bickering and they both go “Thank you daughter” before being conked out.
“What were we arguing about?”
“I don’t remember but its probably your fault.”
Ancient Rat King tries possessing him again and Splinter is just done and tells him to take a long walk off the short side of a cliff… “You are still determined to use me against my sons?” “Its true, you are old and feeble now…” and Splinter gets an “Excuse you what did you just say” look and just spins kicks R.K across the NY state line.
The potential for funny old man is so strong… he’s going to be really funny one day I can tell. There is great potential in this one.
Ok so you know that otp au idea where one works at a flower shop and the other works at a tattoo parlor? I am hooked on that. I like the idea of swapping the obvious roles too, so here we have human!au for both situations.
I made the first (Karai at tattoo shop) set in my 2012 human!au designs, and the second (Leo tattoo shop) with the idw human!Leo design I dreamed up *^* I think idw Leo would have longish hair so he could practice putting it up in a bushido-style bun. (what a samurai nerd)
“I thought you had honor!” I yelled from the top of my lungs.
I had never thought something like this to happen. At least not with Leo. I thought he had a sense of moral and all, but I guess he didn’t. He was just a teenager and he was only learning. Maybe he just was too nice. He was too kind to everybody. Sometimes shy even.
“I- I didn’t do that on purpose!” He stuttered, maybe he was only defending himself because I mentioned honor.
“It’s the honor thing, right?” I asked, crossing my arms over my chest.
“What? (Y/n)-?” He didn’t even know what to say, thinking I was playing around, making him mess up with his thoughts, giving myself a chance to escape. “No! It has nothing to do with that!”
“Oh it doesn’t?” I said sharply. “So you think an honored man would do something like that?” I twisted his words. Good one, (Y/n)… Way to solve the problem.
“I didn’t mean that, I just… You’re doing this on purpose!” He snapped at me, not angry though, he was just frustrated.
“Maybe…” I admitted, shrugging, almost smiling at myself.
“She was the one who kissed me! I didn’t do it!” This made me groan.
“Well you weren’t kicking her off of you either!” My voice getting heavy with disgust. That fucking asshole!
“I don’t hit girls!” Leo explained, only gaining a more deadlier glare from me.
“Yeah like you couldn’t get her off with other moves.”
“I froze! I didn’t know what was happening!” Leo really? That’s all you’re gonna say?
“It’s because you still like her, right?” I swallowed between ‘you’ and ‘still’.
“(Y/n) I love you!” Leo pleaded, trying to get closer to me, but I stepped away, slapping his hand away.
We were on the surface, at a dark alley. I had stormed away when I saw Karai and Leo kiss. He had kissed back. There was no denying that. For fucks sake Leo, why couldn’t he just say he still liked her?
“You still like her! You wanted to kiss her!”
“She kissed me!”
“WHAT EVER!” I raised my voice more.
Leo thought something for a second. He was silent, trying to look around and find a solution to his problem.
“She’s my sister."
My mouth wide open. That’s his excuse?!
"I mean!” He yelled fast, trying to explain the decision of his words. “It’s not like I could ever be with her."
Not getting in better direction.
"I… I can’t do this Leo…” I muttered, disappointed at him. He didn’t, I mean, he couldn’t make things better.
Leo panicked, his eyes getting wide and his body stiffening.
“I really have to go now.” I said before turning around.
When I started to walk away, Leo yelled my name, rushed towards me and took a hold of my arm. I felt a lightning go through me. I didn’t want him near me.
“Don’t go!” Leo begged. His blue eyes searching for some compassion, but I didn’t let him that. I shook my head.
“No. I’m leaving.” I said, pulling my hand, trying to get off of him. He only pulled me closer to him.
“I really want you (Y/n)!” Leo begged. “Just, let’s get back to the lair and I can tell Karai to leave."
My eyes getting wide again, filled with anger and betray. She was still there?!
"She’s still there?!” I snapped, pulling my hand fast off of his grip.
“Well, you left so fast, I didn’t know what to say to her.”
“I’m leaving! Now!” I snapped, only to hear him come after me.
“GET AWAY FROM ME YOU CREEP!” I screamed as loud as I could.
“Shh (Y/n)!” Leo tried to calm me down. “Someone might think you’re being attacked on!” I raised a brow at him, grinning a little like a devil. Leo gasped and whispered: “Don’t”
“I DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY! PLEASE DON’T KILL ME!” I yelled as loud as I could, now hearing people to yell and scream that was I okay and telling that a police was on their way. I didn’t took long till we were able to hear the sirens.
“You better go.” I said threatening.
Leo’s eyes begging me to not to do this to him, but I didn’t fall for that. I wanted him gone, no matter what I needed to do.
The last thing that happened was that Leo tried to get close to me, take me with him, but when the police car’s lights got closer, he knew he just needed to go with out me. Looking back at me, before getting down the manhole, he looked at me with broken expression on his face, but believe me or not, did I look like it or not, I was more broken than him.
RAPHAEL x reader
I’m not Spike
He had started acting weird along time ago. I didn’t want to push him though, even if it bothered me. Oh how I wanted to help him if he had pain. But there was no way he’d tell me. So I didn’t even ask.
He never was home and when he was and we spent time with each others, he didn’t make almost any moves towards me. It was starting to get hard to even be with him in the same room. It was oh so hard, but I couldn’t just end it. I really really really liked him, and I, as naive I was, were waiting for him to tell me if he wanted to stop. Maybe I was stupid, maybe I was too nice. Who knew.
But like I already knew, the day when I would finally get to know what was up to him, was now. And the day that it would end, it was now. I always knew it would end in either way, but not because of both.
When I got to the lair, about to see Raphael and spent my precious time with him by just moping and staring at the tv screen, what I found was something that had never crossed my mind.
I arrived to the lair, and was about to go to search for Raphael, who pretty surely was in his room, I crashed into Leo. He was there, in front of his younger brother’s room’s door, just turning around to face me.
Leo’s eyes widened, and he spread his arms wide open, trying to make it look like he tried to hug me when he noticed what he did.
“Oh hey, (Y/n)!” He said surprisingly loud.
“Leo..?” I almost growled, but he just locked me into a tight hug, not letting me near Raphael’s room.
“You… You came early!” His voice loud, filled with awkwardness. I tried to break free from his arms, only to gain him grunt and trying to explain his actions: “Why don’t we go to dojo? We never spend time there!” I struggled, but he had already started walking, pushing me in the direction where the dojo was.
“Leo! Let go!” I snapped, pushing him hard, tearing us apart, then marching on Raphael’s room’s door, pushing it open.
There he was, on his bed, on top of April.
It took me awhile to even understand that they had noticed us. Leo had walked next to me, putting his arm on my shoulder and starting to lead me away.
I was so broken I didn’t even understand what happened. Leo had narrowed his eyes at his brother, looking at April with angry and cold eyes.
He had walked me in the dojo, pushing me on sitting position, sitting in front of me, trying to make me understand that he had my back.
It took awhile until Leo got me out of my trance, he even threatened me that if I wouldn’t snap out of it he would tell Donnie and ask him to explore me if I had fallen into a shock. I of course didn’t want that to happen, not wanting to tell anyone about this, feeling like it was my fault I had been left heart broken. If I had just ended this sooner…
Leo didn’t agree, like it was even a surprise. He told that this was Raphael’s fault and his fault only.
When he finally got me to get back to my senses, we talked in the dojo for awhile, then Leo offered his help, telling me that I needed to do something concrete and left to get me something to drink.
It didn’t take long for a loud chat reach my ears. It was Leo and… Raphael.
“Did she leave?” Raphael asked, coldly and almost sounding like he wouldn’t care if I would’ve die.
“No, she’s with me” Leo said mockingly, surely glaring at his brother. “How could you do something like that to her?!”
Leo had started yelling. Raphael didn’t care a bit. He obviously was just shrugging his shoulders and not even bothering to think about the whole event more than that.
“Well, at least now she knows.” I felt like he had just pushed his strong hand through my chest, gripped my heart and ripped it out.
I got up, went to the living room, Leo and Raphael turning towards me.
“I’m going home, Leo.” I said, not even looking at Raph.
“(Y/n) you don’t have to-” Leo tried but I cut him off.
“It’s okay. It’s not like I didn’t know that Raphael wouldn’t ever care about anyone. He doesn’t care about humans, or maybe he does care for April, or he’s just playing with her. ” I said coldly, making Raphael mad. He was surely considering either hitting me or yelling at me. “I always knew I didn’t actually matter. I’m not Spike, after all.”
After that nobody said nothing, I only heard Leo gasp and Raphael growl at me. I still knew I hit hard with my words, was he able to hide it or not.
“You’re saying I don’t have a heart? Or that I’m just a mindless monster?!” Raphael finally spoke. I didn’t even look at him again.
“Pretty much like Slash.” I said, now facing his scared and mad mixed expression.
“You know, you’re one little bitch you know that!” Raph snapped, pointing at me, which made me turn around, I looked at Leo, telling him with my eyes that it was my time to leave.
He just ignored Raphael like I did, walking me out of the living room, but before I left the lair, he kissed me on my forehead, whispering: “I’m so sorry about all of this…” His voice low, but loud enough for Raphael to hear. “I hope you won’t start to hate me…”
“No one could ever hate you, Leo.” I smiled sadly at him, kissing him on the cheek before leaving, leaving with an image of Raphael’s broken expression when he saw his ex girlfriend kiss his bigger brother, the one who he envied and hated and loved at all the same time, seeing what he had done.
He just had given his brother something that he had once treasured over everything after what happened to Spike. He had almost handed me to him. And knowing it was all his fault, knowing Leo knew and I knew, he had nothing to do. He couldn’t make this better. He had once again shown us all that Leo was better than him, in anyways.
I’m not Spike after all
That had been a mistake. Letting me slip from his grip. But he knew it was true. He had maybe really cared for me. Not as much as he had cared for Spike. And what happened to him? He left, before trying to rip the family apart, and now he was almost repeating himself. I was going to be the one to break the family now. Making all his brothers hate him for what he did to me.
DONATELLO x reader
Black dahlia (<- (name)song fic for Holywood undead)
Like everyday I visited the lair, where I had grown to consider as another home of mine. I felt so comfortable in there. It wasn’t the only reason I went there though. I had started dating Donnie, the tallest of the turtle brothers. He was such a sweetie. So caring, and a real goofball. I loved him. I hadn’t told him that yet though, but I knew I did. I had just realized that.
So now that I was getting there, in the lair, I almost took dance steps while I got closer. I was so happy to get down the sewers and not wanting to even think about the surface.
When I got there, my eyes widened. I was now facing something I had never even thought about to be able to happen.
Donnie was there, his green arms around another figure, April.
I had never actually liked her. She had been so cold towards Donatello, and made every moment to uncomfortable for us all with her presence. I knew Donnie had had feelings for her, not that he still had feeling for her.
While I watched as Donnie kept April on his grasp, I felt how my breathing got harder. Donnie had his lips on April. They were kissing!
When Donnie pulled away, he smiled down at April, April’s back towards me, not giving me a chance to see her face or her expression.
My head spinning, I tried to keep myself sane, looking around like I was seeing everything the first time, taking steps away, getting closer to shadows and leaving.
“(Y/n)?!” I heard that voice, that sound, that fucking voice! That god damn voice, ringing in my ears differently, making me want to scream and cover the sound under my high pitched voice.
“Oh no!” I heard April gasp. She put her hands over her mouth, facing me.
“Yeah… Oh fucking no…” I chuckled, the tears filling my eyes. I didn’t make any eye contact for the couple. “Oh no that I saw that…”
I hated to say anything. I just wanted to leave, never come back and never see anyone of then again.
“(Y/n) I don’t know what to say…”
Just stop talking… I can’t listen to your voice now…
“We’re so sorry!” April gasped, taking a step forward, thank god I was far enough that it would take her more than just a one step to get close enough, to meet my fist that is.
“SHUT THE FUCK UP!” I snapped, raising my head up, looking at the both of them. My face must have woken something that had died in Donnie back alive, since he looked like he knew exactly how I now felt. Like he felt the same pain inside himself.
“I didn’t mean to…” Donnie tried, his voice shaking but I just looked over him, trying to look cool, which I did.
“No, you did. It’s fine. You two are so like each others.” I smiled. “But you know, I think you have forgotten the fourth wheel.” I laughed evilly, sensing April froze. She looked terrified. Knowing I would finish my sentence.
“(Y/n), please don’t..!” April begged.
“You’re a real bitch, you know that April.” I stared at her with murder in my eyes. “Now that you took Donnie, I may as well take Casey. I’m sure he will appreciate the fact that you had no intention on leaving him, but I’m not sure is he so happy about you kissing others.” Donnie looked at April, not understanding.
“(Y/n) please! This was a mistake! Please don’t tell Casey!” She cried, now getting close, so close she could touch me but I just backed away.
“You… You’re dating with Casey?” Donnie stuttered, obviously not knowing that April never had any intentions to date him. She wanted to be with Casey, but if she stole my boyfriend, I’m not going to make this easy on her either.
“You know what Donnie.” I said, I knew he and April were able to hear the sadness and humiliation from my voice. “You are a mistake!”
I stormed away, leaving April there, crying on her knees, but was surprised by the closer getting foot steps of Donatello.
“(Y/n) please let me explain!” He tried, taking a hold of my shoulder, only gaining me to pull away and slap him on his cheek, across the face.
“I loved you!” I screamed, not even caring if everybody heard me, the people on the surface and everybody back in the lair.
“You gave me hate, see? You feel that? Can you even feel anything at all anymore, than you’re own needs, your selflessness?” I tried to push him down as down as I could, yelling and crying at him. He fell on his knees, covering his eyes and started crying.
“Oh you feel bad? You feel sad? I’m sorry, hell, no, fuck that!” my sarcastic remark making him shake even more. I wanted him to feel even worse. “I don’t care about how you feel anymore!” My voice breaking into a crying and yelling mess. “It was my heart, it was my life, it was my start, it was your knife.”
Donnie whined, his voice so quiet even I weren’t able to hear him. All I could be able to catch from the sentences he spit out were some random words from here and there.
“I’m so sorry”
“I was so stupid”
“I loved… I really did”
"I’ve been abused, I feel so used because of you.” I muttered. Donnie sniffed loud. “Seems like all we had is over now” with that, I walked away, only sharing Donnie cry, beg and plead for me not to go.
MICHELANGELO x reader
no more girls
“You’re welcome, hottie!” That’s when it started, every time he saved a girl on their patrol, you begin with them, he flirted with them. Of course you thought it to be innocent compliments, but it kept happening and getting worse.
The girl giggled, what an idiot, and left, thanking you’re boyfriend once again before leaving. You glared daggers at his way, but he didn’t even bother look at you. He just kept going.
The last time he saved a girl from the foot clan in a subway tunnel, he kicked the clan member off of the girl, helped her up from the trails she had fallen on, right before the train came. The girl was in shock, hugged Mikey and thanked him over and over again. When you were just about to leave, before the girl left, the girl said something like: “A turtle that heroic must have a girlfriend already.”
You waited what Mikey would say, only to get shocked from his playboyish attitude.
“I’m always free for you, babe."
When the girl left, you were burning and furious. You walked in front of Mikey, started yelling at him.
"What was that?” You snapped, crossing your arms over your chest.
“Oh you saw that! Did you see how smoothly I saved her!” His voice excited while he smiled.
“Only thing I saw was how you tried smoothly hit on her!” You growled, using his own words. What a blind idiot he had to be!
“Come on, babe! It was nothing!” He raised his arm, wrapping it over your shoulder and smiled happily, impressed that you were jealous. You of course pushed him off, narrowing your eyes once again, starting to walk away.
“Mikey, you just said that you don’t have a girlfriend to that girl! Seriously! What do you think I’m supposed to feel like?” You waved your hands like a windmill, yelling at Mikey who just looked at you with innocent eyes.
“I didn’t say so…” He muttered, sadly.
“I don’t care. I’m with you on the missions and while I watch you flirting with others like that, it makes me feel like that I’m not worth the effort of being your girlfriend!” Mikey’s eyes widen. He looked scared and shocked, not wanting you to say the next words.
“We’re through!” You snapped and then turned and walked away, not giving him a chance to talk this over.
I'm thinking about Mona and how she gets along with everyone else on team turtle and I. Get emotional. Imagine her& Mikey bonding. She'd have no fucking clue what he was saying half the time. But she'd be filled with the need to protect him.
she WOULD she would know and accept that he was as skilled a warrior as his brothers but she would sit there listening to him chatter and poke fun at raph and be generally little-brother-and-annoying @ everyone, and wouldn’t even notice she’d basically adopted him until she was ruthlessly cutting down a triceraton or something coming up from behind him during a fight
then later, with raph,
“i don’t understand what’s come over me. somehow, michelangelo reminds me of the salamanderlings back on my planet– in that i would destroy anything or anyone who meant him harm, even knowing he’s no helpless hatchling.”
“he literally just has that effect on people. you shoulda seen casey when it happened to him– long story short, they weremessin’ around and mikey sprained his ankle, and we all thought case was gonna cry. look, what i’m sayin’ is, it’s kinda like initiation. welcome to the family.”
This is the final installment in my why-each-of-the-2012-turtles-is-my-favorite-version-of-each-turtle-so-far series.
Last but not least, here’s wee Mikey. :3
Oh my. He’s cute. Super cute. I was not prepared for how adorable he’d be in this series. My favorite Mikey used to be 2007, because I thought he was cute, but… I mean look at this face!
One of my favorite things about 2012 Mikey is how innocent and pure he is. This sets him apart from other Mikeys… particularly 2014 (I still can’t believe they made Mikey so lewd in that one).
Seriously though, who wasn’t completely tickled pink by the scene in “Within the Woods,” in which Donnie’s talk went over his head?
I can’t wait to see how he handles a crush on Renet… I bet he’ll be so cute about the whole thing. Be pessimistic all ya want, but this is 2012 Mikey we’re talking about. He probably won’t even realize what’s going on with his feelings or what the butterflies in his stomach are about. This will be ADORBS.
In the meantime, he still has Icecream Kitty.
Gotta love a boy who loves cats.
Plus, he’s just about the sweetest thing ever. He always looks for the best in people.
He wants to make friends with anyone and everyone… Bradford (before he knew he was evil), Leatherhead, Napoleon… he sees every new person as a chance to make a new friend.
He also accepts people like family.
When he heard about Karai being Miwa, the first thing he said was:
He accepted her, just like that. Sure he was weirded out, but that didn’t stop him from loving her the way any little brother would love his big sister.
The emotion he displayed when she said goodbye to them all proved just how much he wanted his big sister to stay.
He’s a very multi-faceted character. Not only does he get us to well up sometimes, but he also makes us laugh, which is very much needed in this series.
(I totally messed up the spelling of sundae in that gif, but it is what it is.)
Aside from being funny, he’s an extremely talented ninja. He has a lot of natural skill that sets him apart from his brothers.
He also has those “ninja vibes, yo!” He’s able to sense when something isn’t right. This isn’t a skill he had at the beginning of the series, but by “Buried Secrets,” he could tell when someone wasn’t who they said they were.
He’s right about a lot of stuff. He was right about the Kraang and how they were alien robots with brain things in their chests, he was right about Donnie needing to cut the green wire to defuse the mutagen bomb (”The Gauntlet”), he was right about Bradford taking Stockman to his old lab (”Mikey gets Shellacne”), and he was right about… just about everything when they went to Dimension X… both times.
He’s creative, too! He’s great at naming things and people. Inventions, enemies, friends, you name it. He names it. (See what I did there?)
AND he’s a great diplomat!
……Ok well maybe that one’s still a work in progress. But he has potential! He has the heart of a peace-keeper. He just wants everyone to get along.
He loves his family so much, and he’s not afraid to show it.
Whether he’s expressing gratitude…
or just glad to see them…
…he loves to show that he values his family above anything else. Even pizza.
2012 Mikey is one awesome, cute, creative, funny, cute, loving, talented, loyal, cute strong cute dude.
Just another Ramon fic I had stuck in my head for a while XD. I know I write about them a LOT, but I can’t help it! I ship it so hard!!
This is kinda my personal take of the thoughts and feelings Mona Lisa and Raph had before and after they met. The title is inspired by an AMAZING Sherlock fan-song called ‘Never Knew I had a Heart (’Till it Beat for You) by Karliene. I hope you guys like it :3
Now, Raphael was no expert on romance, nor had he ever wished to be.
Looking at what his brothers could be reduced to when the subject of ‘their girl’ came up – the way Donnie’s face heated up at the very mention of April’s name, the wistful gleam in Leo’s eyes every time he saw or thought of Karai, the downright giddiness that Mikey displayed every time he thought of the ditsy time master, Renet – Raph was pretty sure he never wanted to look or feel like that, not in a million years.
However, he could still understand that the way they felt was genuine, and it was never something he would use against them to truly hurt them in any way, despite how much he teased them for it, how much they teased each other for it. But Raphael wasn’t a fool.
He had a heart, of course, a very big one at that (though one should never make the mistake of bringing that up unless they wanted a broken face). But he wasn’t so naïve as to let it beat for someone whom he knew he could never be with.
So Raph quickly decided that his heart had no room for such intense, nonsensical feelings. A simple fleeting crush, he allowed, but nothing more. He saved his heart only for those he held very dear; his family. And he was happy that way. There were no muddled thoughts clouding his mind, nothing holding him back, hindering him from protecting the ones he did love fiercely with his whole being.
I've seen ALOT of Leo hate for this episode, especially for when he ran past Raph. I know hes your favorite, how do you feel about Leo in that moment?
My poor turtle. He has been getting hate for this arc, but I think he’s really been true to character, and I’ve never loved him more.
My thing is, with him running past Raph, people are acting like Leo was the only one who could have done something about it. Like because Leo ran after Karai, Raph suffered 10x more. No, no. No. Donnie, Mikey and Splinter were still there with him. Leo did not abandon his brother, he knew the others could take care of him. Had the others not been able to save Raph for whatever reason, I promise you, Leo would not have left him behind. But he knew Raph was in capable hands. He had faith in his family to take care of his brother while he went after the other threat. Besides, medically, if anyone was more qualified to handle Raph’s situation, it was Donnie.
Also, it wasn’t Leo putting Karai before his family. It was Leo knowing no one else was going after her, that he couldn’t just let her run away, and that he couldn’t allow a dangerous mutant out on the streets like that. Those were his priorities in that moment. I’m the only one who can get to her, I need to stop her, she could hurt other people.
Raph was fine after it was all sorted out. Some people are acting like Leo left him with some form of serious/permanent injury. Plus…look at what happened to Leo in the end. His father walked away from him, as did his brothers, and he’s left with the knowledge that this is his fault. There is literally nothing worse you can do to Leonardo than tell him bad situations are his fault, because it weighs down on him. It scars him mentally, and that hurt him worse than any physical injury ever could.
Go easy on the leader in blue, guys. What he’s going through right now is far worse than getting a little venom sprayed in your eye.
