This has only 13 reviews? This deserves WAY more!

I didn't have an account at the time, and didn't know that guests could comment (though that may not be a good enough excuse), but I read this right after this story came out. Understand, over the years I've read COUNTLESS of stories, probably hundreds of them, but I still remember this one. So even if there aren't as much verbal feedback, still know that your creations can move or impact people, or just give them a new perspective. Because this story definitely did so to me.

Awww cute and awesome, I loved it and excellent job

Okay of your translate of what dai means is wrong; Otouto is younger/little brother and another word for big brother is Aniki (it mean beloved older brother); that is all I got right now

oh my gosh...this story is amazing. and you know what makes it really special for me? I understand what Leo is going through. I went through depression and I was betrayed by two of my best friends. I couldn't think of a single nice thing about myself. My family just kept bringing me down and I just wanted someone to notice; someone to help.

No one ever did.

So I hardened my heart, just like Leo did, and I became an angrier, snappier person. And I hate it.

Right now, I'm working with the Lord and I'm on my way to happiness. :)

Interestingly enough, I've never thought of Leo's attitude in this light before. I think you may have hit on something here. Well done and very well written.

Raph and Leo can't harm you over this one...unless Raph gets annoyed by the mentioning of him dreaming about ice cream.

Stupid me! Ignore my last comment. I thought lightness wasn't a word unti I looked it up and found it was a word.

This just hit me. Lightness is not a word. Don't you mean "The Darkness in the Light" or "The Dark in the Light?"

Okay, after reading this, I have a lot to say.

First, you should make this into a chapter story. This is altering whatever season so you should continue with it. This can't completely stand alone as a one-shot.

Second thing, darn! I think you're somewhat right. While I don't totally blame Leo's family, they didn't really do much to help Leo (except April who did a little and Master Splinter sent him to the Ancient One to get help so basically, it was the Ancient One who really helped Leo), and I think you're right on why although I think there's another reason why Leo's brothers didn't help that much. They just didn't know how to help. Leo and Raph are complicated and don't always let on what they really feel (Don and Mikey do) so with that Raph, Mikey, and Don were at a loss on what they can do to help Leo so they just ignored the issue even though they knew something was wrong.

Third thing. It wasn't just Karai's betrayal that made Leo hurt and depressed. It was the thought that he couldn't protect his family so he was a failure and that he let everyone down. He admitted that when he goes to see the Ancient One.

Anyway, that's all. Good outake on things. I liked how you alternate point of views.

Aw! I loved the brotherly fluff part at the end. So cute!

Can't wait to read that next story you mentioned. I bet it'll be awesome like all your other stories. By the way, when are you going to update 'Where's Leo?'
