Loved it loved it loved it!
And all those Mikey bits at the end too! Perfect hahah
I love how you can convey everyone's emotions so well! Its what made reading the story so intriguing from the very first chapter. Not many fanfic writers can really grab your attention in the first few paragraphs but you did and I'm so greatful to have found such an awesome story!
As always, great chapter and looking forward to more updates!

Raph was a little rude 2 Cat, but hopefully his talk with Donnie helped and hopefully Cat wont hold 2 much of a grudge

Can i just say lol at people saying Karai might be in love with Leo, everybody else is so she may as well join them. Sorry, couldn't resist. You're right Raph he is perfect, perfectly dull.
| Diana Fay chapter 30 . 3/9
T_T awww man that is so sad sniff he now knows and man does he feel bad for it. I hope Catherine's okay and she's not hurt or anything. I can't wait to read what comes up next.
Good luck on the next chapter!
| Lauraliath31 chapter 30 . 3/9
Oh wow, this is powerful stuff! Best chapter so far IMO. Cat has a lovely refined manner despite having survived a traumatic childhood with no guardians, yet Raphael, who lived his formative years with a wise sensei father figure, still acts like a total prick! Raphael's completely unprovoked verbal attack on her almost made me hate him…but I love him! He was so funny and endearing while he was being civil, and his concern for her welfare showed how decent he is at his core. When Cat conferred her radiant smile upon him for the first time and he was so consumed with love and the conviction that he couldn't live without her that he had to kiss and embrace her-that was so romantic, while it lasted! I was wondering how long it would be before Raphael added ‘mad bitch’ to his list of Cats perceived character defects. His language was so visceral and cruel. What an unfortunate choice of words. I wish Leonardo had told him some detail of Cat's childhood suffering but I guess it wasn't his story to tell. God, you've written Raphael as such a complex, tormented character. I just knew perceptive Donatello would be the first turtle to figure out that Raphael is painfully in love with Cat, and to notice that with Raphael, actions always speak louder (and hold more truth) than words-especially as such strong feelings would be almost impossible for an emotional hot-head to hide. He explained Raphael's feelings to him so eloquently-“It is always Catherine who you would stalk with your eyes"-what a gorgeous line-providing the clarity Raphael sorely needs. It's so sad that Raphael believes that he has no redeeming qualities, though conversely he tries so hard to suppress them-attract and repel! Fantastic :D 3333
| Bored chapter 30 . 3/9
Yawn...boring. Seriously you need to pick up the story line. The more chapters you wrote the more it feels like story line is stagnant, characters not moving anywhere in the relationship since chapter one to 30. Yes you can write well trying to make us guessing which girls go to which bros or if it will be threesome. After awhile it just get boring and draggy.
One minute Leo seems into Elizabeth and next Elizabeth who? You are not selling a book series so get on with the story already geeze

Come on! You can't end it here. There should be a 2 chapter min rule when you update! Great chap. Loved the Raph/Cat. One of these days Raphs got to stop being so bull headed!
| Ariane2014 chapter 30 . 3/8
Yay! An update! :D I loved this chapter. I daresay, I think it's one of my favorites so far. I can't wait to see what happens next. :)
| SleepingSeeker chapter 30 . 3/8
What a monster Chapter, indeed!
Wow, when Raph had her in that alley and just couldn't control himself . . . he better keep his distance because he's going to end up doing something without thinking and end up hurting Leo, Liz and his younger brothers in a way that is irreparable.
Leo was perfection, as always, thinking of everyone else's safety, feelings, futures above his own needs and wants. He is ever the self-sacrificial baby-cakes. I can't wait for more of his interaction with not only Liz but evil Karai.
I cannot tell you how much I LOVED Donatello's calling Raph out on his feelings for Cat. It just felt so right that he would piece it together and be bold enough to, not really throw it in his face, but lay it all out in the open and demand that Raph face the truth. It just fits into his character so very well. Also, I love when you have the brothers fight. heehee
Also, I am dying for that flash back of what happened to Raph - and Leo for that matter - you gave us more peeks in this chapter - we know that Leo was there - that Raph was grievously injured and Karai nearly killed Leo, too. Oh man, if he had any lingering feelings for her at the time, ridiculous as it may seem (she was the closest woman he'd come to knowing before Cat and Liz in this), I'm sure she wiped those clean from his mind that night.
And now Leo is gone and Raph has rushed off and he's not wearing his protective vest! Oh man! I can't wait until the next update! Don't leave me waiting too long .
| LeatherLeaf chapter 1 . 3/8
Oh ho ho, I sooo enjoyed. Have you studied psychology? Cause poor Raph has a long list of 'problems'. I love where your story is going. Very complex and can branch out into many directions. I love how Donatello has been able to sit back all of this time and just study Raphael. I love how he backs him in a corner and defeats him with words, rather than beating the crap out of him... Much more affective. I know people will comment on the RaphxCat kiss (which I loved) but I have a theory, heart me out...
It's great that the guys want to protect the twins from Karai and other enemies. Leo has given all valid reasons why they should...BUT... I think Karai is in love with Leo... There, I said it! I could be so wrong... It could just be an honour thing I don't understand because I am not a ninja. Anyway, thanks again for the update. Happy writing! :)
| Cocoagurl chapter 30 . 3/8
Ohhh finally they kissed and raph admits he loves her. And Leo does too! Can we get to the smut cuz I cat wait! When I saw u updated it made my day. And I'm sorry but no one loves Elizabeth... Oh wait I'm not sorry lol!
| Kimmie98 chapter 30 . 3/7
Don is on point, as he is 9 times out of 10.
I'd choose you Raph, but I'm not Cat, so it doesn't count.
| Michelle chapter 29 . 3/6
'Determined to push Elizabeth from his mind, he instead focused on Catherine and he couldn't help the smile that crossed his lips at the thought of the older sister. Thinking about her made him feel content; a soft warmth enveloping him with happiness.'
I was hoping someone else would mention it, but did you mean to say 'younger sister', because Elizabeth has been established as the older sister- or is it Elizabeth that makes him feel content?
| cynicalspring chapter 29 . 3/5
Hi, I've been reading / following this story for a while now, and while it's still an interesting read... I just... there is no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it. There is way too much convoluted girl logic. The characters' thought processes are all way too over-explained & twisted, and I feel like it's making them less & less believable.
Also, the sub-arcs (specifically Stuart & karai) feel forced & abrupt, and in the process the over-arcing plot is suffering. For me, as a reader, it is starting to lose it's focus and appeal.
I admire your courage to undertake a story with such scope (I never would be able to pull it off, personally), but if you are going to have a story this long and involved, it should probably be a complete, edited, and reworked draft before the public sees it.
That being said, lots of things remain amazing. Raph's PTSD and mysterious torture, Leo's committing murder, Cat's confusion over her feelings for Raph, and I'm getting some awesome foreshadowing where the Harbinger comic is concerned! The stuart sub-plot has amazing potential too if it could get a smoother work-in & exit. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Well, anyway, I just wanted to give some honest feedback, and I'm sorry if I came across as overly critical.

With Karai on his way, things are becoming complicated.
