yoshi hamato


 AU where Splinter’s final fight with The Shredder doesn’t end with death no. 72, and instead Splinter miraculously survives both the stabbing and the fall.

Obviously he can’t do ninjutsu anymore because of his injuries, so he follows through with his old childhood dream of being an artist. It takes some practice, but he gets the hang of it after a while


“You… but I sent you plunging into darkness! How could you have survived?”

“You survived, did you not?”

“Then why are you still here? Why did you not escape?”

“There is no escape. We are both trapped like rats,
but here… in the darkness…  you belong to me

The life of Hamato Yoshi

Saki and Yoshi have been established as rivals. Now Saki is pulling a knife out. Well, nice knowing you Yoshi.

Oh, well nevermind I guess? He just stabbed the wall. Anyways, ninja master guy showed up and wants these lower life forms to bow to him.

And he can’t bow because Saki’s evil master plan was to pin his robe to the wall. I mean, you could have just stabbed him. He didn’t seem to notice you pull out the knife.

“Oh, how did this knife get back there? That’s a little concerning.”

Well, the ninja master will probably see that the knife was preventing him from bowing, and so he won’t be in trouble -

What? They’re accusing him of attempted murder now? What kind of murderer pulls out a knife and just stares at it for a solid five seconds?

Yoshi is banished from the clan, and so he reacts like any sane person would and moves across the world to live in the sewers and become Snow White, but with rats.

This post is going to break me,  but, I wanted to point out a couple of things I noticed. First that, not only are there pictures, but, the turtles’ bowl they were brought home in when they were baby turtles is a part of the offerings. To me that is very sweet and special.

I also didn’t notice the first time that I watched this episode. The headstone is carved into Splinter’s likeness. Which means the turtles and possibly their friends took great care in the whole burial proceeding. They would have had to make that themselves. It shows how truly loved, respected and desperately missed their Sensei/Father will be.

((Please excuse my ignorance, if I may have gotten somethings wrong, as I am not familiar with traditional Japanese burials. If someone has more knowledge and would like to educate me more on it, it will be welcomed and appreciated.))

pardon me while go wipe some more tears :, (
