Wow. I adore this. I read to kill a mockingbird and actually loved it. (I hate to read anything other than ff) so great job. I LOVE how you did this and it's such a sad but suiting ending for the mockingbirds. Mike is a rare kid indeed and I would never want it any different. You did a fantastic job, really! Loved it!

That was beautiful, Alex. I really enjoyed how well you wrote out Mikey's compassion and empathy without losing the distinct character you've developed. I especially enjoyed that part where he ran into that purple dragon; it really gave insight about how Mikey feels about life in general.
Excellent work, buddy. Keep it up.
Write write write!

I read that story too a long time ago as a kid, and have seen the old movie a couple of times. It involved too much human action and not much of the bird. So not that fond of it.
But anyway, Mikey sticking up for the orphan birds and trying to save them took courage I think. Not too many humans even think about trying to save animals. And those that do are special. Human lives are thought of as more important than animals.
I know animals have shorter lifespans than humans, but I think that most of the human race just ain't worth saving. And when it comes to doctors, for humans and for animals, ANIMALS' doctors or veterinarians actually CURE animals of their ailments as compared to human doctors, who are in the medical field yes, but most don't want to cure their patients, but medicate them instead.
Better off having a vet try to cure us than humans' doctors. Just had to get this out.
It was sad about what happened to the baby birds. But it was the action and cold that mostly killed them. Mikey did his best. And he is an animal lover. He brought Klunk home on a cold Christmas night.
Klunk might have been a kitten at the time, but at least he was old enough to not have to need his mom by then. After at least 6 to 8 weeks, kittens are capable of fending for themselves. He has a cute meow. I have two of my own and love them like crazy!

Maybe I don't want to review, if that threat to stop typing was real. I loved loved loved this story, and not just because it was Mikey centric. It was all spot on and character good and just plain Awesome!

You and your A/N's which I bypass. Sorry :P
This was quite exceptional in its whole melancholy theme. Not one hundred percent sad, but bitter-sweet. Ninety-nine percent sad. I admire how you drew inspiration fort his one-shot from 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee. I read that when I was ten, and you know how old I am now (_).
Very deep stuff there, and you captured that well in this. What was most commendable was how the 'failed rescue' turned into something that highlighted Michelangelo's valor and soul in a huge way. His essence of innocence and 'need to protect all life' no matter how insignificant it may be. You emphasized that very strongly indeed! I'm sure you made your Mikey a 'must have', 'go fan-girl crazy over' character- much more than he ever was before. Impressive!
The emotions were well portrayed, and you crowned the whole damned thing by having Donatello...well I'll just put back what you wrote.
"Maybe it was better that he didn't understand, that would only make people like his brother all the more rare. Home sounded like a good place to be at the moment. The others would be home shortly. As for the birds, Don didn't see anything wrong with telling a little white lie. There were some issues that should be kept covered. He didn't want to lose that smile of his brother's, after all."
That was priceless. Having Don keep his own natural instinct in check to protect the very thing that makes Michelangelo all the more special. Well done!

Sad!...Sad! And lovely at the same time...very nice, Alex! Bravo! You made me weep for little birds! And Mikey, naturally, thank you for not killing him!

Wow. Awesome story, Alex. I can see Mikey wanting to protect birds because, as he said to the PD, it's still a life no matter what. I love "To Kill a Mockingbird" too. I had to read it for an English class once and thought it was pretty good. I also like how Don wanted to protect Mikey and not tell him that the birds were dead because he didn't want his brother to lose his smile. That was sweet of him. Great job on this. I'll be looking out for more stories from you in the future.

This one-shot was awesome. Mikey kicking ass just to save the birds was awesome. The ending was, to pug it lightly, was really sad. Mikey took five f*****g bullets just too save thrid anf fate laughs at him. Until your ne t story Alex.
P.S. those author notes were riduclous.
