What makes me laugh/happy about this fanbase is how people are worried about who’s getting with who (pairings). Its funny to me because TMNT is not the only fanbase that worries about this. There’s MLP FIM, Naruto and many others that worry about which pairing happens. I agree that it can be a little scary to be part of the fanbase (specially since there’s a Capriltello fan war happening) but it’s still fun to be in because it’s hilarious! Seriously, I wonder why fans like to worry about pairings more than the show/anime itself so much?
Thank you very much! ^o^
I’m trying to keep a good pace. I’m actually not posting quite as many each day as I’d prefer to, but I’m doing my best! ^_^
It kinda seemed to me that Leo, Raph and Mikey weren’t really thinking about how dangerous the situation could potentially be for Timothy. It was cold, yes, though I definitely don’t think they wanted him to get hurt in the process. However, the three of them didn’t seem too concerned when he was mutated either, which is a bit alarming, to be honest (I think, anyway).
Donnie did seem to be the one who cared about him the most. Even when they first met Timothy, he was the only one who tried to help him learn to fight so he’d at least be somewhat less likely to get pummeled in battle. Then once Splinter said Donnie’d be responsible for him, I think his view changed from just wanting to help the poor guy to feeling like it was his duty to ensure Tim’s safety and well being.
I didn’t notice too much of a cold attitude towards Donnie myself, though they certainly weren’t listening to him most of the time. It seemed to me that they just didn’t take him seriously. Not to be mean, I don’t think, but because they thought he was worrying too much. This may be a result of interacting with Donnie while growing up- he is a very scientific individual, and he probably over-thinks pretty much everything. They’re probably used to him worrying about lots of different things, and figured it was same old same old.
I really hope that the turtles don’t have trouble getting along with each other down the road. It’s always made me sad to see the guys fight with each other. I like when families get along and are close. :/
But that’s just my personal opinion. Others may see it differently, of course. ^_^
Artists are actually credited in the tags (being an artist myself, I make extra sure never to forget), but putting it in the caption as well would make it easier to see, yes. ^_^’
I’d checked the last edit (that I didn’t make) that had fanart in it, and it had been credited in the tags, so that’s just kinda what I started doing. But I can most certainly stick it in the caption as well (perhaps they were doing that earlier on and I just managed to miss that… I’m a bit of an airhead, I suppose. >.>’). I’ll make sure to do that from now on. :)
I may be a bit biased (cuz I do think the Dark Turtles are pretty cool, and I definitely wanted to see more of them in the 2003 series), but yes! I would be super excited to see the Dark Turtles come back! ^_^
I think it’d be interesting to see how the new incarnation would handle their evil clones. I’ve seen some fan made 2012 Dark Turtle designs(look on DeviantArt, and you should be able to find some cool stuff!), and the more I see it, the cooler I think it is. :P
I’m not sure if we’ve seen the last of Tigerclaw, but whether he shows up again or not, I’d be extremely excited if they brought the Dark Turtles back! :)
Sometimes I don’t like it when some fans blame the Capriltello shipping wars on the other fans who ship Apritello/Capril (the fans who start it up). Sure they might have faults in it, I’m not going to lie here, but did you ever think that it might be the writers/creators fault too? They knew there where Apritello shippers out there in the first place. I think they just made the shipping even more popular by making Donnie’s crush even more canon if canon already. If Capril was going to happen again in the first place, then what was the point of Donnie’s crush then? Just for humor? That’s what I’m starting to think and It sucks. I think Donnie should have a fair shot, just like Casey does (not because of what they are on the outside). I say that all this drama about pairings wouldn’t have gotten bad like it did if it wasn’t for the creators new series ideas for it. Now they just have to finish what they started.
