Oh mercy me...God bless catastrophe...

We were each born to a family who sought normalcy. Fortunately for both of us we're strong enough to not be dissuaded by such a lackluster ambition. Like everyone else we have a series of congruent shielding bubbles which allow us some measure of anonymity and control over who sees what and just how far in they get. We're well aware a computer screen and several dozen states, if not continents, separate us and anyone who might be reading this. It gives us the flexibility to be more honest - something refreshing, I assure you. Don't judge, you're just as weird. Maybe you hide it better, maybe not.

We are each a daughter, sister, friend, aspiring humanist, hopeful heart, sick optimist, ambitious doer…above all, dreamers.

Do you really care about my likes and dislikes? Can we be reduced to a simple list? Superficially and superfluously – yes. Actually – no. How to say all of this without making this sound like a personal ad… fond of sunny days and long walks on the beach…no wait, that’s what we were trying to avoid right? We live somewhere in the continental US but have visited many places as far as Japan as close as the house next door. Stoic is originally from Michigan and Harley from Florida; now both Florida girls. We both actually do prefer the sun to the night and cloudless to stormy skies. Cold weather is the pits and snow, albeit pretty, is far more unpleasant that white sands and palm trees. Sleep is a waste of precious minutes that could be used for something more meaningful. We enjoy writing but like pushing the limits. We have written in many genres – including our own – but lately we're happy and comfortable playing with the creations of others.

Best friends for many years it’s not something that can be made sense of, we have since stopped trying and rather embrace it for what it is. We share all our ideas and mix our writing freely. That is to say that neither of us controls what we do, nor do we fight over it. It’s lucky really. Forgive us as we tend to get wordy and sometimes science-y as we explore our topics and content of story.

Harley is working on her Master's while Stoic is an Education student.

Here we are, there you are. Welcome to our little square of the intar-webs.

Ashigaru Sha by Flynne reviews
Donatello comes to realize that you can lecture, you can warn, you can beg, and you can fight...but you can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved. Story is set immediately after "The Pulverizer Returns".

Blood is Thicker than Water by Lady of Myth and Legends reviews
A One-Shot, companion fic to We All Make Mistakes by Stoic Herlequin. Must read that story for this one to make sense. What if Don told one person about the test results before he burned them? What is her reaction? What she does next will determine whether or not the bond of family the turtles have built over the course of their lives has all been for not. Does blood really matter?

No One Trustworthy reviews
The Kraang have long been trying to terraform Earth. Each time they get a little closer. Despite many new plans for conquering Earth, the Kraang plots fail because humans are a curious and creative bunch who always thwart them. Perhaps it only takes a small fray, and some mutant turtles allied with those clever earthling natives, for much of their progress to be set back.

Kind of Like A Superhero reviews
With the wit of two evil minds, one should fear their collaboration. It'll take man and turtle power to thwart them. NYC can sleep knowing the Justice League of America and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are on it…after all, they're kind of superheroes.

You've Got So Far to Go reviews
With desire for happiness comes the ignorance to reality. What keeps us from our dreams is often hidden to us, it is why we dream it. It's not quite Michelangelo's fault that he can't keep from dreaming of love.

I'll Be Staring to the Dawn reviews
Tradition and celebration are part of the holiday season for all cultures. Some do it for joy, others for family but Karai observes out of habit and loyalty. Yet, at this year's festivities, she lets her mind stray - even if only with a simple wish.

We All Make Mistakes reviews
In the pains of life, the trials and test, few things offer solace. Family is one of those thing. But what challenges the definition of family? Who decides? Certainly not Hamato Donatello, but it definitely plagues him.

Ninja Turtles are not meant for the world above. Certainly not in a mundane and docile environment and definitely not as a third wheel. This is a response to a challenge and parody.

Standard Break From Life: Career reviews
Only a, a turtle like Michaelangelo could spot the bright day in a dreary night, the beauty in an ugly face, and the excitement in a mundane chore. Where disappointment comes in reality for most, that same turtle finds only inspiration.
