“I’m totally dreaming, right?” Mikey asked as he stumbled downstairs. “And not the good kind of dreams either.” He was still half asleep, urged from his bed by Donatello, who had only told him to get up because they were going on a rescue mission underground.
“Ya’ look awake to me,” Raph said, yawning prodigiously. “Barely.”
“Nope, I’m pretty sure I’m not,” Mikey said. “I think this is a nightmare ‘cause Donny said something about returning to the underground.”
“Should I pinch ya’ to make certain?” Raph asked with a grin.
“If I thought it’d mean I could go back to bed I’d let you,” Mikey said, watching Donatello dart across the lair towards his lab. “What the shell is going on?”
“Your tech packs are in the kitchen; you need to pack them,” Leo said, striding towards them purposefully. “Did

The tunnel through which Leo was traveling was no darker than any of the others, nor was it any more damp. There were odors which he identified as decay and filth, not in the least unusual, and noises he identified as the skittering of tiny rodent feet.
He had no concept of how long he’d been searching the tunnel and only the vaguest of ideas as to why. None of that seemed as important as pushing forward. Something seemed to be tugging at him, some urgency that he couldn’t identify or quantify.
Whatever drove him onward didn’t feel threatening so Leo did not draw his swords. The tunnels here were like a maze and Leo recognized none of them, yet they also seemed familiar.
After a time he realized why; here and there along the walls Leo saw the symbols he’d come to know were Y’Lyntian. They were the same as the ones in the lair and identical to the ones in the underground city he and his brothers had helped to destroy. They were gl

Raph wasn’t sure which he resented more; that his brothers weren’t working hard enough or that he was stuck training them. To be more exact; stuck training them while Leo wandered alone in the woods, possibly discovering Slash’s hideout at any moment.
What Raph should have been doing, what he should have been allowed to do, was to enjoy the euphoria of his new relationship with Slash. Instead, he was in the yard in front of the farmhouse, pushing his younger brothers to get their skills up to speed.
This was exactly what had been expected of them at home with Master Splinter. Every day they practiced, sometimes doing the exact same thing over and over until they got it right. There was no whining in the dojo, no complaining about the other things they’d rather be doing. Not unless they wanted to feel the painful pinch of fingers expertly applied to pressure points.
“Again!” Raph barked as Don
|1. Rectitude. Correct judgment or procedure for the resolution of righteousness. "To die when it is right to die, to strike when it is right to strike."|
2. Courage. A virtue only in the cause of righteousness. Death for an unworthy cause was termed a dog's death. "It is true courage to live when it is right to live, and to die only when it is right to die."
3. Benevolence. Love, affection for others, sympathy, and nobility of feeling are regarded as the highest attributes of the soul. "Benevolence brings under it sway whatever hinders its power just as water subdues fire."
4. Politeness. A poor virtue if it is actuated only by a fear of offending good taste. Rather it should stem from a sympathetic regard for the feeling of others. "In its highest form politeness approaches love."
5. Veracity. "Truthfulness." Lying was deemed cowardly, and it was regarded as dishonorable. Indeed the word of a samurai guaranteed the truthfulness of an assertion. No oath is necessary. "Propriety carried beyond bounds becomes a lie."
6. Honor. A vivid consciousness of personal dignity and worth is implicit in the word honor. "Dishonor is like a scar on a tree which time, instead of effacing, only helps to enlarge."
7. Loyalty. Only in the code of chivalrous honor does loyalty assume importance. In the conflict between loyalty and affection the code never wavers from the choice of loyalty. "A samurai was obliged to appeal to the intelligence and conscience of his sovereign by demonstrating the sincerity of his words with the shedding of his own blood."
Way of the Warrior
|“Raph had decided to stay and draw them off of me so that I could escape,” Leo was saying. “He thought that I’d actually leave him. When I said I never would, he told me in his most severe voice that he thought I was smart enough to know that warriors are expendable but leaders aren’t.|
“He was so furious at me for standing with him that he had tears in his eyes. That got to me; the depth of feeling that Raph was displaying, the concern. It wasn’t just about my being a brother to him.
“I wish I could properly describe the emotions that revelation brought on. They filled my chest and swelled my neck so that I was afraid I might burst. Powerful, hot headed, psycho Raphael – his whole universe is us. All of those years I spent believing him to be a self-centered, egotistical brute that occupied himself with body building just so he could show us up in a fight. It wasn’t anything like that at all. He just didn’t ever want to fail us; he was driven by the fear that he wouldn’t be strong enough for us.”
~~from "Claiming Him" part 12
"We were raised as brothers so that we could be family. We were raised as ninjas so that we could adapt. We learned to be a team so that we could survive. Now we are learning to strip away the last of the barriers between us so that we can live." Leonardo - from the fic "Claiming Him"
Greetings and Felicitations! Welcome to my humble homepage.
First off, let me say that I'm no artist. Most of what you will find in my gallery is fan fiction and almost all of it is based on my fandom of choice - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2k3 cartoon verse.
I write everything from brotherhood to brotherly love, including TCest. I like to write action and drama as well as some light comedy. I have TCest fics, Slash fics, and fics with a female OC - so be aware of what you're getting into. I do add warnings and summaries - so if something includes dubcon, noncon, bondage or any of a number of other kinks I enjoy, you'll know ahead of time.
I do not write death fics. I do not read death fics. It's just a personal preference and something I like my readers to be aware of. The only exception is the SAINW universe because any deaths there are canon.
I also don't write about the guys being mutilated in any way, shape, or form. I like 'em just the way they are!
I adore artists; I grew up with one and have always migrated towards talented people. I however can't draw a straight line with a ruler, therefore any original artwork in my gallery - either posted as art or as preview art - has been used with the express permission of the artist. I always ask first!
One last note - I don't do requests! Sorry folks, but I never run out of ideas of my own, so I haven't enough time to tackle other people's ideas. That's not to say that chatting with my pals won't birth a bunny; that's happened plenty of times! I just don't solicit for them.
As with my fellow writers, I say welcome, thanks for reading and remember - Don't like, don't look.

Personal Quote: "I ride for the brand."
A couple of new additions for your amusement and HAPPY THANKSGIVING AMERICA!
Aggravating = A person who creates 47 deviantArt accounts in order to create 1,000 new Groups inside of 2 months within the same fandom.
Annoying = Said person posting journals to every conceivable existing Group begging people to join those new Groups and then whining that ‘everyone hates me’ when no one joins. Because there are already 2 to 3 Groups that cater to that niche in the fandom and another one isn’t wanted.
Rude = Said person taking over a flourishing existing group and making an arbitrary decision to destroy it because it does not suit their personal needs. Then hiding comments that do not agree with their decision (and therefore the rude replies they made to people’s offers to help) while also featuring any comment that agrees with them.
Contravene = Someone who continually posts screen prints to Groups whose rules state they do not allow screen prints. Who then also attempts to post journals to Groups who have already made it clear they are ‘art only’.
Narcissistic = A person who asks for free stories about their OC and when someone offers, is nasty to them when they make a reasonable request in return.
Drive-by fan = Enters a fandom with as much fanfare as possible yelling ‘look at me, look at me’, wreaks havoc for a couple of months, then slinks off to another fandom to repeat the process.
From MissMoMo1990 Askhole (noun) = A person who constantly asks for advice or feedback and totally disregards what you tell them.
From Dragona15 Self-promoters = a person who drives by a deviation leaving comments like "Hiiiiii lemme just selfpromote myself right here plz follow plz k thx" and leaves a link to their page.
From Christy-nee-chan Dumb-sharing = the person who just comes to catch some popular works and think it's nice to edit AND/OR share it in others websites without the permission of the author and when they're caught they play dumb faces: "the website is mine, I post whatever I want".
From NeatTea Oblivious info baby = person who needs information being spoon-fed because lack of reading and/or attention skills and is unaware that the question has already been answered multiple times before.
From MomoRawrr Sobster (noun) = A person who resorts to telling a not topic related sob-story of their life (e.g. struggling with depression, bullies at school, problems with the family, you name it) in order to gain sympathy-points during a dispute/conversation/discussion when they undoubtedly were in the wrong and committed a previous offence. Often seen in the recolorist- and reposter-faction of a fandom, but can also be used to try and obtain the favors of unsuspecting spirits that were previously not involved in the initial debate.
From prplbeedoo The Compulsive RPer = always in-character, never listens when people ask them to stop, or lays a claim to x character and becomes overly protective of them in a very fan-insert-y, OTP-y way.
Also from prplbeedoo The Idea-man/woman = A person who swears up and down that x character was their creation, and that you or the creators of the original show stole them, or otherwise just snatched the idea straight out of their heads, and sometimes demands compensation. Coincidence or the concept of similar thought never occurs to them, because they view themselves as being so original no one could have thought up what they had.
From sampsonknight I’m/Not-Me = A person that uses other accounts to create another persona to harass others over what has been done to them and act as if they are some concerned friend of the ‘person in question’. Many times this person will deny who they really are, making up some fake name just in order to be rude and attack others and have their hands clean of their deeds. Extreme cases of I’m/Not-Me will make sure to have their persona well known by commenting on the ‘person in question’ works and journals to make the persona seem like they are a real individual, in order to keep the illusion alive.
From :Myrling: Group-parasite: Noun (alternative definition: Cuckoo-nesting/Cuckooing: verb)
A person that takes advantage of groups that automatically accepts art in order to spread their own work, even if it has nothing to do with the group in question. You can be sure that you've encountered a group-parasite if a deviation is featured in over 100 groups that has little to nothing in common, and thus proving that the misplacement is a fully intentional attempt to promote themselves and not an honest mistake.
From Raykushi Netiquette = The correct or acceptable way of communicating on the Internet. Mostly ignored by those who fit into the above definitions.
TMNT PLZ accounts Share the ones that know you about, maybe we can list them in a journal all in one place here? (This post will be edited as we find more.)
