Awww! Donnie is just too sweet! I love it 3
| Mary chapter 1 . 10/3/2016
Yes yes yes yes . This just yes. Apologies for providing a comment so obtuse but just yes.

What a sweet story! Yes, I can see why Splinter would think of the Turtles as a meal based on his instincts, but thank goodness he didn't do it. But I agree with Donnie that he understands what was going on and that he doesn't judge Splinter for anything. Yes, as much as I loved the 2003 version of Splinter, I prefer Splinter being Hamato Yoshi like in the original cartoon and the new Nickelodeon cartoon which I adore! Nicely done on this.
The Bubbly One,

I did not expect Splinter's answer to be that morbidly dark, but, it was believable. I really enjoyed their conversation. Of course, Donatello has the curious mind, wondering about Splinter's moments before the mutation. Nicely done!

Lovely. I am in awe. I adore stories were Splinter is the one being comforted, and a scientific Donatello is perfect. He can approach this sensitive topic with distance and empathy because he's so logical and caring. He wouldn't be horrified or angry or hurt - just understanding and compassionate. I love that Splinter didn't try to lie or hide. Truly, truly beautiful. And yeah, a few fallen tears on Splinter's part just makes the scene even more touching. Wonderful.

Wow! This literally never would have occurred to me. It's gruesome and sad but also very touching.
| Pheonix09 chapter 1 . 7/30/2015
Awww cute and awesome, I loved it and nice job
| becky chapter 1 . 6/7/2013
That was funny
| Illmerica chapter 1 . 1/21/2013
Yeah, after reading a study on rats I was wondering why he didn't eat them too. Guess this explains it
| Vela513 chapter 1 . 9/15/2012
This is a great story. It does sound to me like it's possible Splinter did eat a 5th turtle when he said "I did not eat any of you, because I had already eaten for that day." esp. if the 'any of you' meant the four we all know now.
Still, probably a good thing that the kids didn't find out earlier! Probably based off of certain movies and fairy-tales, lots of kids at one point have a sneaking suspicion that their parents are really just fattening them up for later. I can imagine Mikey would've had a spectacular reaction to that as a kid.

Ha-you had Don ask what I always wondered! Awesome! And a good answer for it too. I couldn't have asked for better.
Course, you have to think that Splinter wasn't quite an ordinary rat to begin with to know so much about Ninjitsu. :)
| Second daughter of Eve chapter 1 . 3/2/2009
Interesting choice of topic Donnie...
| KeepYerCoolGreenBean chapter 1 . 12/9/2008
"Oh and Donatello?"
"...there were actually...five of you."
"On an unrelated subject, did you know that certain reptiles taste like chicken?"
Toy with his mind Splinter!
| Leepet chapter 1 . 6/7/2008
Aww. I always kinda wondered about that. Thank you for answering the question.
| Kay chapter 1 . 5/31/2007
I can already tell you work is particularly brilliant not only because it's well-written, but also because you search out possibilities I would have never even considered, and then execute them so wonderfully. *_* Brilliant, I tell you.
I love this. It makes me shiver, sigh, and smile. :) :) And that it's Donny who thinks of it is fitting in more than one way to me.
