Hello!

Here's a story with a ton of random oneshots! I've decided to bring in a character of mine into the shenanigans and I hope you like her.

Alexander Taylor is an original character I've made a part of the TMNT universe. Appearance-wise, she has long dark hair, bright green eyes and tanned skin. She's sixteen and lives in New York City with her two older sisters, Summer (25) and Lilian Taylor (21). Alex goes to Roosevelt High, in the same class as April O'Neil. Due to past events that occurred during an origin story (New Faces, New Changes) she knows about the turtles and frequently comes to hang out with them. She works at a pet store part-time and has some basic knowledge about martial arts from a former teacher who taught her when she was ten years old.

I sincerly hope you'll like the story and my character too.

For you Aster Sapphire!


#1: Playing Dress Up

Occasional cries and laughter was heard drifting around in the Lair. It had been going on for some time and the noise was mostly ignored in hope of it ceasing sometime soon.

That never happened, though.

Leonardo turned up the volume on the TV, hoping that some action scenes from Space Heroes would drown the annoyingly high sounds of quick footsteps and battle cries. Donatello mentally instructed himself to restrain himself as his fingers danced around the keyboard of his laptop.

A loud crash sounded, followed by more laughter and Donatello finally snapped, shoving his computer aside. He stomped angrily on his way to the source of the noise.

"Can't you guys keep in down! If you haven't noticed, I'm trying to-"

Two sets of eyes turned to stare at him; one set a deep blue and the other lime green. Alex was pointing a spatula in the air, a black fabric tied around her neck to act a cape, while holding a lid for a pot in her hands. The pot itself was on top of her head.

Mikey was holding a big scoop in his grip, an old leather hat on top of his head and a pair of his nun-chunks in his other hand. They were inside the dojo where all sorts of packages and old boxes had been placed around them to act a fort.

Donatello narrowed his eyes, an eye ridge slowly raising as he did so.

Alex turned her whole body his way, puffing her cheeks out as she put her hands on her hips.

"Do you mind?"

Donnie ran a hand across his forehead, closing his eyes.

"I'll likely regret asking this but...what are you guys doing?"

"We're playing dress-up!" Mikey said eagerly. "We're pretending to be rivals dueling each other! But it's sorta getting boring."

"Yeah," Alex nodded in agreement until her eyes drifted to the turtle with the bo staff.

"Oooh! I got it!" a glint appeared in the teenage girl's eyes. "Donnie, d'you wanna join us?"

"What?" he replied. The youngest turtle started to grin.

"We could totally start it over again! You could even be the wizard, Donnie!"

Donatello crossed his arms just as Leo appeared from the living room.

"Thanks for ruining another Space Hero episode, guys," he huffed.

"Oh, pish posh," Alex retorted. "You've already watched every episode at least a hundred times; I think you'll survive not seeing this one again. You wanna get in on this too, Leo?"

"You can be the hero and I'll be your awesome side-kick; Turflytle!" Mikey bounced happily, taking out both his nun-chunks in excitement.

"And I'll be the dashingly evil rival with a flair for dramatic entrances who you'll have to fight in the end!" Alex exclaimed and they high-fived. Despite the fact that Mikey only has three fingers.

"Wait," Leo said. "Don't we have a say in this?"

Both Mikey and Alex glanced at the two other ninja turtles who stood in front of them with crossed arms. Alex took off her black cape and waved it around suggestively.

"C'mon, Leo~" she teased. "You know you wanna try on the cape~"

Leo turned to stare at Donnie who seemed to wear the same questioning look on his face.


Raphael yawned as he slowly walked out of his room, heading for the kitchen. The nap he took was longer than he'd expected and it surprised him that none of his brothers had managed to wake him up with their usual noise. As he crossed the living room, he heard all sorts of yells and shouts coming from the dojo. Did Master Splinter give the others extra training? What for? he wondered. He entered the dojo and his green eyes widened in surprise and disbelief.

What the shell?

"You'll never defeat me, Leonardo, not as long as I've got your precious wizard!" Alex laughed hysterically, as she tucked at the wizard's robe that was tied around Donatello. "Now, I will rule over the land and no one can stop me!"

"Never, Alexander!" Leo said in a heroic-like, deep voice, with his sword pointed at the 'enemy'. "My trusted side-kick and I will never fail to protect our-"

"Ahem."

Everybody turned to stare at Raph who was leaning at the doorway. Silence followed for a few seconds until-

"There you are, Raph!" Mikey said. "Now we have someone to play the role as the princess!"

Silence came once again. But that was until the sound of Mikey's screams and Raph's growls cut through the air, followed by a series of crashes.

"Mikey, I told you already; the pink dress is meant for April, not Raph," Alex sighed.
