TMNT - Berry PickingOnce upon a time, four cloaked turtle brothers wandered through the forest. The eldest wore a blue cloak to hide his turtle figure. His name was Leonardo and he was the turtle in charge. He led his brothers along the winding roads of the forest. Behind him was the second oldest. His cloak was a dark red. It looked like it had been through a lot judging by the stains and tares. Raphael was his name. Behind Raphael, the third oldest turtle in purple trudged along. He was slightly taller than his brothers. But what he made up for in height, he lacked in muscle as he was scrawniest out of the eldest brothers. He went by Donatello.
And the last of the turtles was Michelangelo. He was the youngest out of all of them, younger by many years. His oversized orange cloak drowned his tiny body. He stumbled over the ends and kept adjusting the hood so he could see Donatello in front of him. He tried to keep up with his big brothers, but it was a challenge when his legs are not even half the size of
TMNT - T-Tots - First WordThough they were all very close in age, Mikey was clearly the youngest. He had taken the longest to fully develop. He was the last to learn to learn to walk and the only one of the turtle brothers that had not yet said his first word.TMNT - T-Tots - First Word2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Splinter worked hard with each of his sons, teaching them simple words and phrases they used on a regular basis. Things like: Thank you, please, hungry, tired, messy, sorry, and daddy; among other small words.
The other turtles caught on quickly, and were using these words often. They knew when to say each word and how to say them. They ran around the lair proudly proclaiming their new words for everyone to hear…everyone being Splinter and his turtle sons. But as the others ran around naming everything in the room, Mikey sat in the corner. He tried to talk, but he couldn't make himself say them. He was stuck with syllables. He lived in the world where he communicated with “ba” and “ga.” Splinter had become fluent in that lan

“The roaches. They’re everywhere.” He hissed “They’re after me” He looked around his room in search of the tiny insects. “They are gonna eat me alive”
Leo stood outside Raph’s room, ear pressed against the door. He sighed and walked back to the couch where his brothers were sitting. “I really think you overdid it this time Mikey.”
“I was just having a little fun. I didn’t mean for him to end up like this” Mikey sighed, flopping off the couch and onto the floor.

Mikey crept up behind Raph with a bucket of cockroaches. He laughed silently before picking up one of the crawling creatures and placing it on Raph’s shell. Quickly and quietly, he hid the bucket and nonchalantly walked around the couch to join Raph.

Mikey sat in his room, quickly losing interest in his comic books. He threw the comic on his bed and shifted uneasily on the floor. He was no longer comfortable. In fact, he was restless. He stood up and paced around the room, hoping to think of something he could do. Unfortunately, there was no such luck. He ventured out of his dwelling to locate any of his siblings. He walked into the dojo, expecting to find Leo. He was surprised when he saw Raph training in there.
“Hey, Raph, need a sparring partner?” Mikey asked, ready to pull out his nunchucks.
Raph stopped training and wiped some sweat off his forehead. He panted as he answered, “Not today, Mikey. I’m doing some solo training. Maybe another time.” And with that, he turned his attention back to the punching bags.
Mikey frowned, but quickly remembered he had two other brothers to ask. He left the dojo and ran to Donnie’s lab, where he was sure his genius brother was working. He knocked before ent
TMNT- T-tots - Broken ToysDonnie sat quietly in the living room, tinkering away on the latest broken toy his little brother Mikey brought to his attention. He was beginning to think it was Mikey himself breaking all the toys. He looked at all the different pieces he had to put back together, and without a diagram and number stickers. It was a test of logic. And Donnie loved logic games. He noticed each piece individually, paying close attention to the edges and how they would fit in with each other. He started trying to fit pieces together, like it was a puzzle. A puzzle with no completed version to reference.TMNT- T-tots - Broken Toys2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Raph was, for once, sitting quietly in his room, "reading" an old comic book. He couldn't read just yet, he was only three after all, but he enjoyed looking at the pictures. Peace and quiet. That is, until Leo decided to pop in. "Hey, Raphie." Leo said, smiling. Raph sighed and looked up from his comic book, irritated. "I told you not to call me that! I'm reading, go away." He stated, shrugging Leo off. L
TMNT - T-Tots - Birthday PresentsIt was the day before the turtle brothers turned five years old and Raph was in search of presents. He had always been a procrastinator, but he really overdid it this time. Time was closing in and he wasn’t sure he’d be able to find anything for his brother’s in the sewers. Shopping for gifts was difficult for the turtles. If they were to find anything, it would be used and old, and often times broken. But there was a plus to sewer scavenging: it was always free. He found a thick packet on the construction of a diesel fuel engine he could give to Donnie. It was water logged and written all over, clearly someone’s discarded homework, but it was the best he could do given the circumstances. After more searching he stumbled upon a toy racecar lying on the bank of the sewage. He picked it up and took a closer look at it. It was missing a wheel and the paint was worn away. But he was sure Mikey would find some kind of use for it.TMNT - T-Tots - Birthday Presents2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

TMNT - T-Tots - FloodedIt was the rainy season in New York City. The rain never seemed to end. For countless days and nights, the raindrops fell from the endless clouds. The rain was intense. Not just a drizzle, but torrential downpour. The storm drains saved the city from massive flooding, but that did not help Splinter.TMNT - T-Tots - Flooded2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Splinter stood at the front of the lair watching the water level rise. It wouldn’t before the water overflowed from the waterways and spilled into their homes. He anticipated it would only take another day or so. He looked back at his sons fumbling around on the floor behind him. It had only been a few months since the mutation. Splinter had spent the last few months renovating the junction where they lived to make it more like a home. There was still much work to do, and Splinter feared he would be set back after the sewer floods.
The young turtles held onto the objects around them, helping them to stand. They have just started learning to walk, and none of them have fully mastered t
Sleep Tight (T-Tots)Bed time was always a difficult time in the sewers. Trying to get four four-year-old turtles to fall asleep at a decent hour was just as hard as trying to teach them ninjutsu, if not harder. As the clock chimed seven, Splinter left his room to prepare the evening tea. He had found the turtles sleep better when they have a warm cup of tea before bed. He set the kettle on the stove top as he went to retrieve the boys. First, he went into Donnie’s lab space where a young Donatello was reading a very large of book on understanding chemistry.Sleep Tight (T-Tots)2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
“Donatello.” He smiled, “It is almost time for tea. Please be quick to the kitchen.”
“I’ll be there in a minute sensei,” Donnie smiled at his father as he closed the book and set it on his lab bench.
Splinter closed the door and set off to find Raphael. He was harder to find than Donatello as he would never be in the same place twice. Raphael was not in the turtles’ room, not in the dojo, and not in
TMNT - Power OutThree-year-old Michelangelo sat in front of the TV watching his favorite television show. It was his turn to pick the channel so none of his brothers could complain that it was a show about talking construction vehicles. He looked behind him to see his three older brothers sitting uninterested on the sofa behind him, with the exception of one who appeared more angry than uninterested. Mikey smiled as he moved to lay on his plastron kicking his feet in the air and resting his head in his hands.TMNT - Power Out2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
“Mikey, move your feet.” Raphael complained with his arms crossed unable to form a more complex sentence.
“You don’t like this show, Raphie.” Mikey smiled as he intentionally pointed his toes at the ceiling.
Before Raphael could retaliate, the lair went dark. Every single one of the few light sources in the lair simultaneously blew. The four boys let out a surprised scream as their surroundings disappeared right before their eyes.
“What’s going on?”

Young Mikey ran through the lair in search of his eldest brother. He searched all the usual places: the living room, the dojo, the kitchen. But Leo was nowhere to be found. It was almost noon and no one had seen him since the night before.
As he walked past Leo’s bedroom on his way to Donnie’s lab, he heard an unusual sound from inside. Mikey opened the door and took a peek inside. Leo was lying in his bed with the covers pulled up to his chin. He rested his head on the pillow behind him miserably and stared at the ceiling.
“Leo, what’s wrong?” Mikey pushed the door open and ran inside.
Leo turned his head and stared blankly in Mikey’s direction. A few weak coughs escaped his throat and his eyes filled with tears.
“Are you sick?” He ran to Leo’s bedside and stood beside him.
Leo swallowed, which obviously hurt his throat, and opened his

Splinter rubbed his head, it was well past midnight and little Michelangelo had woken the entire lair, again. Splinter rose to his feet and headed off to sooth his crying son. He smiled when he saw Donatello with his brother in his arms soothing him. “It’s okay Mikey,” Donnie said gently bouncing his brother. Donnie turned to see his father in the doorway, “how did you do this with three of us?” the former youngest son asked.
Splinter laughed, “it was difficult but, I managed. For the most part only one of you three would wake up during the night.” Splinter placed a hand on his son’s shoulder, “you do well with your brother.”

He sighed as he climbed out of his bed and trudged along to the bathroom. He took care of his morning business before going to join his family in the kitchen. They had begun breakfast without him. He looked at the clock on the oven, it was after 9 AM. He took his seat at the table and picked up a pancake. He made a face as he picked it up and set it on his plate. He just wasn’t very hungry. He felt that the pancake would taste bad.
“Michelangelo. I see you slept in this morning?” Splinter asked, setting his fork on the side of his dish, “Is everything alright, my son?”
All of his brothers turned to look at him, awaiting his response. He tried to speak, but it came out in a

Master Splinter sat in his make-shift living room watching over his four toddlers as he meditated. It would be a wonder to anyone how the rat could concentrate with the ruckus the little ones made. He finished his meditation and opened his eyes to see two of them, Raphael and Michelangelo, wrestling around on the floor. He observed the two carefully to be sure they were not fighting, but after hearing only a few seconds of their laughter, he was certain no harm was being done.
Just outside the action, Donatello was sitting cross-legged while he sucked on his thumb and held his purple blanket to his cheek, laughing and smiling through his tired eyes that burdened him to sleepiness.
Splinter glanced at Leonardo who sat quietly watching a cartoon on the television, eyes wide and mouth agape. The colorful images and goofy sounds made him oblivious to the commotion his two younger brothers were making.

It was winter out, everything a cold, but Raph still wanted to explore in the sewers. Raph was impressed that Mikey was good companion today. He did not talk too much except for the occasional question or to check they were going the right way.

“What can we do?” Mikey asked.
“I am going in to get him!”
“Are you crazy that water is cold!” Mikey said, but it was too late Raph was already in the water.
Raph swam to the little turtle, but suddenly water came rushing hard and fast down where Raph was, it swept over his head causing the red clad turtle to be sucked

Donatello liked to take some time off from inventing and building to watch Master Splinter and April from the shadows. She had grown so strong and fast, but no where near as good as him, his brothers and the rat they called their “father.” But he still admired how much determination she had while fighting. It was like her life depended on it. Well, it did, but still.
