In this, somehow you manage to capture some painfully human states of being. And that's awesome sauce, sure, but even more impressive in certain ways is that you manage to impact upon the reader the feelings with which Leonardo struggles. And, no, I don't mean that you convey those feelings well-that's what my first sentence of this review was all about.
I mean that:
In conveying those feelings so well, in using vignettes that seem utterly random and yet obviously connected, you evoke those same disjointed, apathetic, passionate feelings in the reader that Leonardo has felt, but then go one step beyond and allow us to become the character, reminding us of our personal Raphael, if you will, our people that we know and yet fail to understand, our self that we understand and fail to know.
In summary, so gettin' favorited right now.

there are no absolute words on how well this story is written! I love how they interact and how well the characters were blended in. Thank you for sharing! Here's to you and your skills! 8D

I'm guessing you're not around much anymore, because I checked the date on your stories and you haven't updated or added anything new in a while. That's too bad. Because I absolutely love this. It's amazing. As soon as I stumbled across it last night, I spent the next few hours reading the rest of your work in this fandom...it's all brilliant but this is still my favorite. It really is amazingly written. The way you write has a beautiful flow to it, like poetry...
Do you post your work somewhere else now? Would love to read the rest of the fics you haven't finished on here...
Hope you still check your emails/alerts, coz I really just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed this!
It's possibly the best thing I've ever read on this site. So...thanks for sharing!

Wow...just, wow. That was amazing.
| Longing for Leo chapter 1 . 4/21/2010
Wow, this story is amazing! I'm not very familiar with the comics, but I think you explained everything well enough, and the '03 show covered the rest, so it all made sense. Your writing style is very sophisticated (something I'm not used to around here) and I really enjoyed reading it. And such a creative prompt! I didn't even know there's an tmnt rpg. That's pretty sweet...I'm going to have to look that up now. Anyway, loved the Leo/Raph moments, especially their hug, and the story overall. Well done!

I think I stumbled upon this story three time before actually reading this story. Man, I should have looked at it sooner. You should include in the description some of your reviews like: "Amazing Leo centric story! A must read!" lol. and you can quote me on that. I love it so idea that you came up with, the questions you must have asked yourself. The detail you put into it. The story and how it unfolds. First I'm going "what... i really don't get it... is this what the entire story is about?" lol. Then I'm just excited and have this huge teeth baring smile sketched on my face. lol. So thanks for the read.:D

Poetically written and incredibly introspective. Almost a character study and yet too personal to be called that. You've brought such a depth of character to the table that it is almost unnerving. Too put it simply: it's fucking brilliant.
| Lionheart chapter 1 . 8/22/2009
This story... is so completely fantastic. I can't even put it into words. I can read it over and over again (and I have, pathetically enough XD) and every reading brings some fresh insight, some new idea into light from it. You can do so damn much with your words. This piece transcends any fanfiction you'll ever find on this site. You are such a talented writer.
| Dierdre chapter 1 . 3/5/2009
It's a rare thing for me to get choked up, but this was so moving in so many different ways that, by the end, I was quite literally in tears. Beautiful, chica. So damn beautiful.

i never read ninja turtle fanfiction but i saw this and had to. i gotta say, it was amazing! i think you just convinced me to keep reading these D
| Kallasilya chapter 1 . 11/2/2008
... I think I'm in love with you.
I'm not even joking.
(Well, maybe a little bit, cause otherwise it would be kinda creepy, I guess).
I'm definitely in love with your writing, though. You manage to get... the whole-damn-world... into one short story. Hot diggety. I don't know how you do it, but it's like the best drug ever known to mankind. Understanding and knowing and the way you tie it all together so perfectly... gah. It's just incredible.

This is a pretty cool story! I loved reading it and your other stories! You are a completely awesome writer! :)
This is really awesome and very beautifully done!
BTW: Are you going to be updating Lockdown anytime soon? :)
| Polaris'05 chapter 1 . 10/27/2008
This is one heck of a piece of writing. Seriously, this is possibly the best work I've seen yet on fanfiction! It's angsty to the point of surreality, but that just makes it almost intoxicating. I mean it, I was really drawn into your story and I love it! Truly fantastic! :)
| a-big-apple chapter 1 . 10/27/2008
Beautiful, as always. I love the way you write Leo and Raph, and the way they relate to each other-it's so bizarre and delicate, and nobody reveals it as cunningly as you.
| Original-Elfkin chapter 1 . 10/27/2008
Okay, this was so scary good that it was worth continuing my long, lonely wait for the next chapter of Lockdown. (Hee-he...)
Leo is my favorite-because, really-who can't adore the stalwart, slightly masochistic hero archetype. Martyr Soup!
Anyway, I think I may love you even more just for the "Melville" of it all. I mean...WIN! Just total WIN!
