I've had this idea in my head alot lately and since i can't get it out of my head, i decided to make a story out of it. I know that I'm probably biting off more then I can chew but I can't help it. Please keep in mind that even if I don't update this story as often as most would, that doesn't mean I have given up on it, it just means that I taking my time and thinking things through.
It started out with him being nothing but a helpful turtle.
Even though there were times he made something break or caused a mini explosion, even though he wasn't as smart as Donnie he took pride in being his brother's lab assistant. And Don himself seemed to enjoy the younger's company because he never truly got angry at him for doing something wrong. Not to the point where Mikey's feelings were hurt, and even if they weren't, Donnie would feel as though he said something wrong and would immediately apologize. Because that was the type of turtle he was.
And they all thought Mikey was the only sensitive one.
"So, Donnie whatcha working on?" He asked curiously with a smile on his face.
"Trying to synthesize this new power source for the new Tunneler I'm building. It's a very rare source of energy that Cody gave to me as a goodbye present before we came back home."
Mikey grinned, leave it to Cody to make Don even more nerdy then he already was, "Can I help, master?" He teased as he pretended to be Igor to his brother's Frankenstein.
Don scoffed and whacked Mikey on the head playfully. "Yeah, you can hold these two wires separately while I go get something from the garage. Think you can do that?"
Mikey had saluted his brother and grinned. "Aye Aye, captain!"
And to his credit he was able to stay still and hold the wires without them touching for a good 10 minutes. But his brother was taking forever and he was so bored that he decided to start singing to past the time, then he found himself tapping his feet to the song he was singing, then he began drumming his free hand on the work bench and walls.
Mikey realized too late that in his attempt to entertain himself he accidentally knocked the large beaker filled with a glowing white blueish liquid off the shelf above him.
The liquid fell on his head and splashed everywhere, the wires he had been holding now sparked to life, a tingling erupted through his hand and traveled down his whole body. His vision blurred and he felt all kinds of wrong. He remembered looking at his hands and saw that they were slowly fading away, in fact his whole body was fading right before his eyes.
"D-Donnie!" He had screamed tears falling down his cheeks, completely and utterly terrified as to what was happening to him.
All three of this brothers came charging in with their weapons drawn, only to freeze in place as they looked at him in shock. "Mikey!" Donnie had cried out, rushing to him with his hand outstretched, only to pass right though him.
"Don! What's going on?!" Leo asked frantically, as he also tried to grab onto their younger brother, only to fail just as Donnie had.
Donnie shook his head, "I... I don't know!"
"Well, fix it, brainiac!" Raph growled as he grabbed Donnie by the shoulders and shook him.
By then Mikey could only hear fractions of what his older brothers were saying. Because as his body disappeared so did his hearing. The last thing he heard was Leo, Raph and Don's terrified calls of his name.
Then... then there was nothing. He was nothing for what seemed like forever, his body was no longer there but his mind was still active, it floated in and endless sea of fog. He kept saying words like stupid, stupid and why am I such a screw up?! Now he was nothing... but he didn't want to be nothing. He wanted to be solid and be with his brothers again.
A shriek left his mind, he called out to the nothingness to not let this be his fate.
And then abruptly he was put back together. As if by magic he faded back into himself as if he had never disappeared at all. A combined amount of dizziness and nausea overpowered him and he fell to his knees. Slowly his vision returned and he looked up but was shocked to see that his brothers were no longer there, hell he wasn't even in the lair anymore. Mikey found himself outside in what looked like a desert?
Standing on shaky legs, he walked up a nearby hill to get a better look at his surroundings.
"What the hell?" He whispered under his breathe as he saw the waste land in front of him. Though it was slightly dark from the nighttime sky Mikey could clearly see that this wasn't just any desert, it wasn't a normal deserted place. This place looked like it had once been a beautiful area but then it was savagely burned to the ground.
Where am I? He wondered silently.
It was only when he felt a chill run down his spine did the shock of where he was finally wore off, someone was behind him, someone with ill intentions, someone that wanted to do him harm, shaking off the nausea that were still present, he sprung into action. Whipping out his nunchucks, he did a back flipped and hit his attacker with his weapons. His attackers surprised him by dodging his nunchucks and swirling away from him.
The silhouette began speaking to it's friend, "What is it?"
It's companion replied, "I think it is a person."
"No, it looks more like a turtle."
Soon they two started circling him like vultures. Their movements were... strange. It was as though they were snakes, they seemed to slither. And the way they gazed at him with hunger in their golden eyes, Mikey had a good idea at what they wanted from him.
"A human turtle?"
"A turtle human, yes yes."
"It's huge, a mutant?"
"I'm hungry, dinner time?"
"Yes yes, dinner time."
Mikey glared at the creatures. There's no way he was going to be food for these things, not when there was something he could do about it. "Hey! I don't know who you guys are, but Michelangelo is no one's dinner!"
"It speaks! How strange."
"Yes, but see I am still hungry."
"Agreed, let's feast together."
They attacked and Mikey yelped as he dodged out of the way. He's never seen an enemy so fast before. They were both even faster then Hisomi Shisho and he was ninja mystic god. If that was the case then he was totally screwed, but that doesn't mean he was going to go down without a fight.
No, no sir. He'd fight, just like he always has.
But soon Mikey realized that the more he hit them with his nunchucks the slipperier they were becoming. He cried out in pain as sharp teeth sank deep into the skin on his shoulder. He fell to his knees and gripped his arm. His fighting strength now gone from the pain and exhaustion.
They laughed at his pitiful attempts to survive, saying that he was within a world with no hope even if the alien that conquered it was gone, they called him weak and troublesome, then sprung to finish him off.
Mikey closed his eyes and waited for the final blow that would end his life, and when it hadn't he opened them to see the creatures were no longer there. Standing in the place of where the monsters once stood, was a person. "Who the hell are you and why are you here?" The voice that spoke to him was gruff, cold and angry. But... he knew that voice even if it was different then the one he was so often use to hearing, he knew that voice.
Then as the nighttime clouds passed by the moon giving the area he was in the slightest bit of light, Mikey saw them.
A long, tattered purple bandanna hanging off the man's neck as it swayed in the wind and a Bo staff behind his back. Mikey had no idea how this was possible, he couldn't understand what was going on but all that mattered to him was that it was, and he couldn't be more happy. This man wasn't a man at all, he was a turtle.
He was Donatello.
"Don?" He said as he put his weapons away and stood up on his feet, holding out his hands.
The man growled and lunged at him. "Don't you dare call me that!" He sneered at him as Mikey found himself on his shell in the dirt. "Don't ever call me that again!"
Mikey cried out in pain and panic as he felt a knife being pressed to his throat. "D-Donnie! It's... It's me! M-Mikey!" He explained as his heart beat a million miles a minute. The figure stiffened above him and the young turtle opened his eyes and saw Don's own chocolate brown ones staring at him in shock.
"M-Mikey?" The voice was no longer filled with blood lust and hate, the pressure on top of him abruptly disappeared and Mikey was finally able to sit up. As he did so, he saw that his brother was sitting in the dirt, looking absolutely shell shocked.
"Donnie?" He whispered as he placed a hand on his brother's shoulder in an attempt to comfort him.
Donnie then sprang forward and Mikey instinctively stiffened at the act, only to realize that his brother was just hugging him. "M-Mikey! Oh... Mikey! You're— You're here... B-But how? She told me— told me you all... were all— God, Mikey!" He heard Donnie sob out his arms tightened around and he felt tears drip down his neck. Hearing the purely broken anguish in his older brother's voice caused tears of his own to fall down his face.
He returned Don's embrace and clung to him just as tightly. "Donnie, what's— what's going on? I don't know— I don't understand where I am or how I got here... I'm scared, Don." He couldn't help that his voice quivered, he knew he must sound like a child. Knew that a 16 year old like himself must look pathetic bawling like a baby, but he couldn't help it, he was sensitive, tears came easily to him when he was sad, angry, or scared. It's just who he was. The weight of all that's happened to him hit him all at once and he couldn't stand it anymore, not on his own.
Donnie then pulled away from him enough to look at him, his tear stricken face shining in the moon light. Slowly, he brought a hand up and gently wiped away his tears with the pads of his thumbs. He gave Mikey a small smile, he pressed their foreheads together. "It's okay." His brother said as he embraced him again. "It's okay, Mikey. We'll figure this out, okay?"
Mikey nodded as he breathed in a hitched breathe. Putting his trust in his brother as he always had, he'd be okay.
Everything was going to be fine.
If it wasn't obvious, Mikey has now been transported to the SAINW universe, since we know that time works differently in any dimension, future Leo, Raph, and Mike have been dead for about a year, and future Donnie just found all this out not too long ago. Which is why his reaction to Mikey was the way it was.
SAINW has always been my favorite episode of the 2k3 series for how dark it all is. Especially since it's about my favorite turtle Donnie! =3
Anyway would you guys like me to continue this? Or is it just a waste of my time?
Please leave a review on your thoughts on this and I'll see you all soon.
