The Other Side of the City--Chapter 161
Arcos and Aries arrived back at the Lair before Splinter’s turtles, and he had to admit, he was torn about it. His meditations had been interrupted by frantic thoughts ramming through his ordinarily quiet brain. Years of honing the skill, to calm his fears when the boys were little, to quell the rat that always fought to emerge, and sometimes did, made falling into trance easy. But he was having trouble even getting his mind to be noiseless enough to even begin meditation properly. His monkey mind would not shut up. What was happening to Raphael? Why had The Mutanimals stolen him? He knew it was at Shredder’s bequest, Slash would

The Other Side of the City--Chapter 160
Splinter was drawn from his meditation in the dojo by the sound of his sons and Mutanimals entering the Lair.  He wasn’t expecting them to be back so soon, and relief washed through him.  Despite the rash of near failures and misses that his family had been experiencing, the boys seemed to have had a smashing success in this mission.  All of them were present, and not a one of the eight of them had a scratch. Slash collapsed onto a chair, holding his head in his hands.  “I can’t remember,” he said. “Remember what?” Splinter asked, emerging into the room.   “How we escaped,” Rockwell said. &#

Splinter retreated to the dojo, the picture of his four sons in his hands.  The Phoenix had this in her pocket, and from the look of it, it had been there a while.  It was wrinkled and worn, the edges of the folds were beginning to come apart.  She must have found it when she’d found him in the sewers, months ago.  Why had she kept from him when he’d stayed with her in The Burrow?  And why had she kept it after he’d left.  How long had she been carrying it?  Why was she carrying it at all? Not an hour after Arcos and Aries had left, the quiet of the Lair was disrupted with the boys beginning to argue.  He took a deep breath

During his morning practice, The Shredder saw Mistress Veronika was correct about yet another question she’d posed to him when she’d first arrived--Bradford was getting better.  He had reduced himself to a slobbering fool, literally, by dousing himself in mutagen.  As a human conglomerate of Hachiko and his human self, he was so utterly useless, he might as well have been on all fours and walking around like the dog he’d been mutated into.  Having been mutated again, he’d regained some control over his body, and he was, Nikka had pointed out, getting better. He paid particular attention to his student this morning, ho

“Saki,” she heard her brother say.  The rain was soaking her to his skin, the uniform stuck and wet to the point that her socks in his boots were wet.  The air was cold about her in the dark, except for her back, here her brother lay against it, each holding the other up.   “Hhhnnn?” she asked.  She didn’t like the cold, but she seemed very stoic about it, in a way she never recalled doing before. “Look at your watch,” he said. She did so, the skin of her hand more tan that she’d ever seen it.  It was strikingly familiar, but at the same foreign, too big to be hers.  “It’s 2:33,&#

With Phoenix’s more volatile son away, Splinter turned to Arcos.   His question tickled at the tip of his tongue, eager to escape.  Yet, at the same time, the desire to keep his thoughts to himself, to keep some of his experience of The Burrow his, grabbed the question, holding it in.  Finally, he managed to say,  “I am wondering how Shredder knew to kidnap your mother to get my attention.” Arcos’ dark brown eyes looked sad, his brows drawing together.  “Sparks told him.” Splinter let out a small noise of annoyance.  “From the Inlet?” he asked. Arcos nodded.  “I guess he remembered when

Splinter resisted the urge to go to the dojo, the voices of his sons and those of the little healer on the edge of arguing.  He wanted to retreat, let it be their decision now, to hash out as they would, about what The Phoenix’s immediate fate would be.   He wanted to feel that he had no part in it, that his bit in the play was now over.  He’d rescued her, prevented her death at his inaction, and his sons had freed everyone else.  It was a job well done, the only casualty was made before they had even arrived, and the casualty that now was being argued over was in no real danger. But that was not how he felt. “I need to ke

If Baxter Stockman had pupils, he was sure they’d be the size of his iris, and that he would be glancing to and from Karai’s enclosure.  He wasn’t sure whether to leave her in the terrarium or not, and opted for leaving her.  She had everything she needed, after all, and it was harder to hear her throw insults at him when she was in her human form. He had hardly slept since Shredder had left for Japan.   The threat of his limbs, or his life, being severed if progress had not been made on his daughter by his return were taken very seriously.  He hoped that awful woman wouldn’t come back with him, but not only did she d

“You know, Saki,” Yoshi said, his arms across his 12 year old chest, “if you’d only waited, we would have gotten to eat some.” She scowled.  She knew she was scowling, even though her name was not Saki, and she couldn’t feel her mouth in a downward line.  But she knew that her bottom lip stuck out slightly, and annoyance burned at her chest.  “If you had been more quiet, Yoshi,” she said to her brother, “then we wouldn’t have gotten caught.” Yoshi shrugged.  “We can get some cookies at the café tomorrow anyway,” he said.   “You just want to go to the c

“Dude, he’s in Disneyland!”  Michaelangelo held up the tabloid that April had brought down to the sewers to show them.  “What’s it say?” he asked. “I don’t read Japanese, Mikey,” April said. They all turned to Leo. “I don’t read Kanji either,” the blue banded turtle said.  “Man, he does not look like he’s at the happiest place on Earth.” “He looks like he’s about to kill someone,” Donnie remarked. “That kid he’s looking at?” Raph suggested. “I found it!” Casey laughed, turning the laptop toward them.

Casey Jones resisted going to Alice’s hideout, again.  He’d been once since she’d gone to visit her family, out west somewhere, she wouldn’t say where.  The place was exactly the same as it always was, dusty, quiet, with his buttmark on the beanbag seat.  So instead, he sat on top of a low building, five stories up, watching the streets below for any Purple Dragon scum that might deign show their faces. She’d texted him twice since was gone.  He wanted to call her so bad, to hear her voice, husky with that to die for Brooklyn accent.  But he hadn’t gotten the guts to do it yet.  She hadn’t called him

Saki had to hold back his vexation at Nikka as his private plane landed in Sado City.  She had argued with him about their itinerary, something he was entirely unaccustomed to.  His irritation had nowhere to go, much as when his minions failed due to something beyond their control.  Unfortunately, unfunneled frustration had a tendency to fester inside of him like a sore.“It is going to look suspicious of we go straight to Sado City without going through Tokyo,” Nikka had argued. Suspicious of what?  Being rich?  He hadn’t worked to be where he was in his life to be accountable to airports.  He held back his tongue.  “

As Phoenix felt the hard, exoskeletal like skin beneath Baxter Stockman’s sweater give slightly as she was rammed against him, the image of what was now her daughter was all that her eyes saw. As the mutagen drained away, it left a twisted body, still dark green with even darker triangles on a powerful snakes body.  She couldn’t see Medusa’s upper half, it was buried beneath the rest of her physique.  Then, as if rising from the waves of the sea that were her body, she raised one of her skinny arms. For a brief moment, Phoenix felt relief, her little Curly Que was alive, she was OK.  But then the rest of her body followed,

Within three days of not being bitten, the stench of  Karai’s venom was gone from her system.  She wasn’t sure if she liked it or not, the reek of the dungeon was much clearer to her nose without the snaky acridness tainting it, but Phoenix began to feel somewhat normal again.  The room no longer spun.  Her tongue and lips no longer felt swollen.  The marks where the girl’s many mouths had bitten her were all healed, her face did not hurt and the amount of water she was given each day did not quench her thirst. To her doctor’s mind, they were all good things, things that showed improvement of the patient and were to b

Aries stepped over the turnstiles to the Lair, carrying two large, though almost empty, homemade messenger bags over his shoulders and a dingy knapsack on his back.  His open chested denim vest revealed a low covering of wool, grown back from his summer shearing.  With no one being in the pit, he made his way to the kitchen.  He dropped all three bags on the floor, opened the fridge door, and grabbed a Coke with a “Yes!”  April had obviously been there that day.  Otherwise, the soda would be all gone. Plopping himself down in a chair, which protested under his weight, he opened the Coke with a satisfying hiss.  Bringing the alumin

Post their names along with their creators' avatars I was tagged by *RavenshellRorschach (https://www.deviantart.com/ravenshellrorschach) Here's my TMNT2k12 OC Arcos.  (I don't have a picture of just him...if any of my artist watchers want to tackle that, I would be eternally grateful). 1. Arcos is a bear mutant, from my story The Other Side Of The City, created purposely by the Kraang.  Whether he was a bear first or a child first is undetermined.  But he started out as a child and grew up as a mutant.  If he was ever human, he has no memory of it. 2. He is currently between 19-21 years old
