I find that I can only read properly at night, which isn't good if I need to go to sleep.
I love the way you describe things! Don has understandably toughened up since the others have died, like when he made that funny metaphor which would be something Raph/Mikey would say, or when he was like 'Splinter's dead and you've got to move on.' I think my favourite scene was when Don began destroying the motorbike. The imagery in that was so powerful. The personification gives the bike a life of its own and it makes it feel like Don is actually killing killing it.
I liked the last bit a lot as well, when they were talking about reincarnation.
The title is very fitting. I'm slightly glad that I didn't read this on Christmas. It would have really depressed me, aha.

We had the chance to read this story today, what with all the festivities FINALLY settling down! And let me tell you, we enjoyed it!
It was a sad little fic, but it was sweet in its melancholy. There was hope in the end, particularly with the fact that they both have this idea that maybe…just maybe…there is more to life than death. Their brothers are living another life. Its interested and a wonder they both survived before without that hope. We enjoyed it for that fact, you showing how both Leo and Don could have optimism…though it is a very sad, sad situation for them all.
Thank you so much for this gift, it was very sweet of you! Thank you and bravo!

It was very sad but there was hope in it. Nice job. It would be cool if those 2 boys really were the reincarnations of raph and Miley. that would make a nice story

Poor Leo and Don...at least they still have each other, though.
Merry Christmas anyways!

Hey, Alex. that was a good story. Yeah, it was sad, but I liked it anyway. Not every story has to be happy. I'm sorry you're not having such a good holiday. Mine's been okay, but I don't think much about Christmas anymore. It's just another day to me. Great job on this though. I loved it. Happy Holidays.
The Bubbly One,

Dangit, I shouldve read this first! I read two happy Christmas stories before this that got me smiling, and then this! Well, while it makes me feel sad for them, it does make me appriciate my family being alive and healthy. Thanks for that reminder :)
Job well done on this!

I just about know how you feel. I had to have a separate Christmas with my grandparents all because of my stupid job. But besides, I kind of felt better me not being there when everyone was together anyway. All attention would be focused on my baby nephew anyway. I'm not that much for human babies.
But at least my time with my grandparents let me be focused on instead of the baby. I don't mind the holiday, I just hate working around the time. It's so insane!
But poor Leo and Don. No more family or friends to share it with.

Ǿн wow, that's an awesome title for this! This was wonderful...not mournful, but bittersweet. Those two turtles still got each other, and they make the best of what they're granted. That is exactly what it should be about. Christmas. Ah the holiday when you're supposed to be all goofy, jolly and happy despite the harshness of life.
I really enjoyed the exchange between Don and Leo, where he uses him as a centre table. Their banter reminds me of me and my sis. We had issues with our Christmas tree. It looks better now, thanks to our sour faces and wrinkled noses. My mom glares at us. Heheh it's funny.
We are forced to watch Invader Zim and something, and now I'm being threatened by my other sis...something about me leaving, and now I gotta bake a cake. Now the depressing convos. Aren't holidays fun!
Ǿн, I got the nostalgia of Raph and Mikey from those kids before the reincarnation comment. That was great. Ah, you know what, it felt real to me. Yep, that's it. It felt real; the entire thing.
Hang on, I lost something I was eating...Ǿн I see it. Yay! Where was I? Hmmm, I'm home on Christmas eve and not drunk. Shocking.
Yeah, thanks for this fic! Has that dismal Christmas thing going, with a touch of hope, joy and happiness. I see the two little boys as a tiny spark of hope. Maybe they were reincarnated. Nice.
Make the best of the holiday hon. Make fun of it. They make nice stories to tell in the future. Take care!
