My body is covered with goosebumps. And be happy to know that I am seriously choked up. I have to say that Karai getting beheaded was so right after what she'd been responsible for doing. Nice job with the action sequences, they flowed nicely and were very clear. Great job on this short, painful and yet, beautiful story. :)

Oh how cowardly - of course they'd stoop to such sneaky methods to distract the boys. And Splinter must have been slightly proud to hear that they fought so valiantly despite being blinded by that spray.

Splinter's grief is so tangible. I love how he doesn't realize he's even crying until the tears hit his hand. :(

Wow just wow. Such a powerfully emotional chapter. The part where you describe his heart as empty and full - that got me. Anyone who's lost someone close would understand that exact feeling. Damn, I've got chills. This whole chapter was beautiful and almost too real for me. It mirrors actual grief too closely.
There is truth here. A better compliment I can't think to give an author.

Wow. This is intense. I was hoping against hope each time he found one of them, that they'd still be alive, that he would be able to save one, and each time, my hope died. Well done with the suspense of that.
I could see Splinter blaming himself for their deaths. He didn't have to teach them to be ninja, he didn't HAVE to send them after the Shredder.
(in the original comics, Splinter's sole reason for keeping them and training them was to use them as a way to avenge his master. They were his instruments of vengeance. He is much more amoral in the older comics than how he's developed through the shows and new incarnations. A bit of that old Splinter still haunts my depictions of him, another reason my take on him may come across harsh in some of my stories when I'm not blending him so much with the newer 'fatherly' shades of him.)

Oh man. This chapter was so heartfelt. How horrible to come home and find your children murdered in cold blood! Yes, you did great on Splinter's character, and I can see him feeling this way. I can picture the seen as I'm reading the story and it brings tears to my eyes. Nicely done on this, Betty. I'm off to read more.
The Bubbly One,
