lovely :) It's all well-written and engaging. It's clear that you have put a lot of thought into the dialogues, problem solving. Great work! :)

This was a beautiful chapter in terms of the interaction between them. Perfect handling of Mikey... that maturity he is definitely capable of that goes along with his sensitive heart... and then of course the utterly brilliant and smooth transition into wise-cracking Mikey that cheers poor Don up.
Your handling of Donnie is always perfect.
Although I empathise with the idea of love-lorn Don, I feel like I couldn't really connect with the Ricki story because of not having met her, not having seen enough background established to their relationship ( Though the note about Don's anguish over never being able to truly live in a scientific community was keenly felt)... she felt more like a plot device to aid your objective in writing this fic than a real character.
That criticism aside, it was still a really awesome fic and a masterfully written chapter.

Yes, more great stuff...I was somewhat let down by the Sarah McLachlan thing, though the porn confusion got a big LOL out of me... I think maybe I was expecting this story to tie into the previous two chapters... but nonetheless, it was still awesome and enjoyable to read and more great brotherly interactions. I love awkward Raph, convincing himself he doesn't have to ask for help... 3 and I love that you show Raph very accurately as not being one to shirk from a challenge... any challenge... he won't give up, he'll at least give it a go.
I didn't comment much on your depiction of Mikey so to add here... I love it. I love that you get Mikey's sweetness. As brash and annoying and thoughtless and crude as Mikey can be, at his core he is just a lovely guy and I need to see that. I love that he was on the verge of tears about his fib. He's so full of feelings and so willing to show them.

Again, beautiful interaction and wonderful handling of Leo. He's a perfectionist but the truth about perfectionists are that we never believe we can ever achieve the perfection we so desire and it tooooooortures us! I love Leo's own humility and fragility being displayed here - I hate it when writers depict him as completely arrogant and self-righteous, it's just not him. He is haunted by a need to always Do The Right Thing and won't go any easier on himself than his brothers. ALSO: that gorgeous sly Leo sense of humour that comes in at the end here... so perfect! 3

Beautiful interaction between the two brothers here... super stuff.

Hiyo! I particularly enjoyed this chapter as I am something of a Michelangelo - Donatello brotherly buddies fan. You know, Leo and Raph have their issues/understandings with each other, so I like the idea that Mikey and Donnie have a close relationship so none of them feel left out or alienated. I guess I got that from the old 90s movies, anyway.
In any case, I think you characterized them both very well and I enjoyed your prose and dialogue. Excellent work!

I love this story. You have written a wonderful and believable scenario with a very natural and emotionally beautiful dialogue while keeping them all in character. Thank you for sharing and keep up the good work! _

Yay! Torturing Donnie! *smile* It's addictive, don't you think? Loved it :3

I think you just reinforced the fact that Don and Mikey are my two favorite characters. I just love the interaction you have between them especially, not that the other two weren't just as good...Sarah McLachlan? lol who knew? Is that why Raph's so protective of the MP3 player?

Aw oh so cute! And very well written. Some of these character stories have a tendency to get a bit mushy but you've thankfully avoided that trap. Well done!

I thought this was quite good. I totally understand Don's feelings about his friend, and watching him break down was both touching and perfect- as was your choice of Mikey to be Donnie's comforter.
Very great series, I enjoyed it greatly! I could praise it all day. :D

I was so looking forward to the Raph chap of this series, and it didn't disapoint one tiny bit!
I just adored nervous!honest!Raph and well... *happy sigh*

"“Uh ... Leo?” said Don apprehensively. “Did I neglect to mention that the lecturing actually works very well on me? Yeah, very very well. In fact, I hang on your every word—I mean it!” he said."
This almost had me on the floor- which might be a bad thing since I'm at work. XD
Again, excellent dialogue- I felt bad for Leo, which is hard feat, believe you me!

That was so... so... brotherly!
No really, that felt very much sweet, realistic, and like something that happens in homes across this nation every day.
I loved the dialogue- funny, touching, and very very IC. You have a very great grip on the characters.
Highly enjoyable read!
