anonymous asked:

This is a weird request, but could you write Raph's POV when Leo fell asleep on him in that pre-PC Leo was mugged side-fic?

anon is talking about this prompt. and sure, why not ! :^)


Leo was a solid warmth against his side, folded under Raph’s arm like it was two years ago again – back when there wasn’t ugly contention always sitting between them like a sadistic stranger, back when Leo was happy to see him when he got home. 

Raph felt it when Leo went heavy, loose-limbed in sleep. It was the exhausted kind, the blackout, restless kind, and Raph wished he could thumb those deep circles under Leo’s eyes away. Wished the torn skin and bruises could be peeled off his face like stickers.

“This isn’t working,” Donnie murmured, sotto voce. “He doesn’t owe us this.”

It felt unreal, to be talking so plainly about him with Leo’s head on his shoulder, and Mikey listening, watching them all with grave blue eyes. Don didn’t give ground, though. Looked right through Raph’s closed expression like he’d drag the unwanted conversation out of his head by force if that’s what it took.

“This isn’t working,” he said again, with iron buried in the softness of his tone. “Raph, he can’t do this by himself.”

He’s been doing fine so far, a mean part of Raph’s heart supplied, but Raph knew it for a lie. He was doing better than Raph would have done in Leo’s shoes, but that wasn’t saying a lot.  

Untouched by their tragedy, Leo had strode forward. Gathering up the scant little they had, depleting the savings account sensei had started for them, finding an apartment listing on Craigslist posted by a landlord who didn’t care who was moving in, as long as they had first month’s rent and a security deposit paid up front, in cash. Swallowing his pride and asking Mr. O’Neil for help setting up the utilities. Taking Mikey to Goodwill and letting him pick out cheap, secondhand furniture and kitchen appliances like it was a treat, so the kid wouldn’t have to think about how much they had left behind again, how much they would be without again. Letting Donnie budget, listening attentively and nodding in all the right places as he did his best to be helpful. 

Putting a schedule on the yellowed fridge, “this is where I’ll be working, here are the numbers where you can reach me when I’m gone.” Raph pointing out, cruelly, that the schedule was impossible with school starting again in a few weeks, and Leo looking at Raph without looking at him at all, announcing quietly that he wasn’t going back in the fall with the rest of them. not to worry, he’d take care of things.

Leo, who had done so well in all of his classes, smarter than he ever got credit for next to Donnie. He really got to shine when he could stand alone, when he didn’t have an entourage of little brothers to mother and protect. But it was so easy for him to let that go, to pick up shitty work in shitty parts of town so they wouldn’t starve or go without heat, so they’d have a place that could be home. 

All of them raw and tender with grief, still reeling drunkenly through the motions of this brand new life without their father, any push felt like a blow; but Leo just moved forward without ever faltering, bowing gently with their sorrow but never breaking under his own. 

Raph had hated him for that. Hated him for being okay, for being so strong and doing so much when Raph couldn’t do anything. 

And then he came home on a limp, shirt torn, lip cut and bleeding, and oh, god, it wasn’t hatred at all. Not at all. Leo stood tall when Raph approached him, but his eyes withered as he braced himself for another battle, when he couldn’t shelter from him behind little Mikey, who could cradle the world in his hands if he were as big as all his love, when Raph stopped right in front of him and gave him nowhere else to look. 

“I’m okay,” he’d said, but there was a fracture in his voice that nearly took Raphael apart. He was bleak and pale, all used up, so impossibly tired. Standing in this home he had carved out for them like it wasn’t as much his as theirs, ready to absorb another blow from his hateful little brother, ready to take another helping of Raph’s pain on top of his own – and not knowing what to do, when Raph took his face gently in both hands. 

Leo, who had never been okay. Who had never been untouched. Who had lost mother, and now father, and was beginning to lose himself, a little bit, too. Who stared at Raph like he was seeing him clearly for the first time in months, when Raph touched him without meaning to hurt him.  

I don’t hate you, Raph wanted to tell him. I was miserable and mean to you, but I don’t hate you. 

Instead he pulled Leo closer, his arm a shield – let anyone get to Leo now, let anyone try – and said quietly, “He’s not by himself, Donnie. Not anymore.”
