A/N: Omg I'm alive.
It's a miracle I know but life sadly has a way of kicking you when
you're down. So yeah....these past few months have been rough and
chaotic. I also just got back from a con (Plus BONUS POINTS: I got to
cosplay as Leonardo ) Best thing in the world in my personal opinion
since he is amazing.
Oh great now I am
fangirling again ugh.
this chapter is different then the others so far; why? Because I said
I hope that you enjoy this amazing chapter XD
All I remember is the sight of my father falling, blood trailing out
like a waterfall as I can only stand there in utter shock. The utter
satisfaction in her eyes makes my skin crawl, all I could do is watch
as she raised her blade to finish the job…. eliminating me.
Leo/April completely centered AU
I don't own Ninja Turtles or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, all of it
owned by Viacom and Nickelodeon.
The sounds of the
keyboard typing rapidly broke through the silent lair, pitch darkness
enveloped the area as a long figure sat at the desk in the lab
portion. Head drooping from sleep but still actively focused on the
blaring screen of the computer that broke through the darkness. A
heavy yawn left the lips of the purple banded turtle, his left hand
coming up to rub at his puffy mahogany eyes as his right hand
continued to type like a mad man possessed. Heavy bags were
underneath his eyes, evidence of long all nighters as he shifted in
his seat slightly.
His eyes darted across
the screen, shifting the mouse over as Donnie moved to the left of
him to snag at a coffee cup. Lifting it to his lips, his passive gaze
shifted to annoyance as he groaned. "Just great....have to brew
another mug." Donnie mumbled softly to himself, his eyes never
leaving the screen. Clicking on one of the links on the computer,
Donnie shifted the mouse over to quickly input a few equations and
codes. His old machine buzzed to life as Donnie groaned softly,
leaning back to crack and straighten out his back and shoulders.
Stretching his long arms
above his head, Donnie didn't stop till he heard the satisfying crack
of muscles and bones shifting into place. Leaning his head on the
back of his chair, Donnie stared absentmindedly up at the ceiling as
his mind continued to run a mile a minute.
"The equations are
correct, I just need to figure out the variable. Granted the odds of
finding him isn't entirely in my favor and there is a high
probability of-AH! I can't think that way! He is alive, I just need
to find him." Donnie exclaimed softly, sitting up straight
completely while rubbing and scratching his head in annoyance. Images
of his older brother being injured severely flashed through his mind
but quickly banished at the last second as he mentally slapped
"No more doubt
Donnie, you will find him." Donnie muttered softly to himself in
tone, his expression shifting to a serious gaze as his typing
increased. The more the purple banded turtle focused on the screen,
the more aggravated his headache was hurting. It had started out as a
slight annoyance but it now quickly developed into a flat out painful
reminder of how many days Donnie went without sleep.
need coffee. This migraine isn't helping either Donnie
thought in silent agony, his typing slowed down as he gently leaned
back in his chair. The back of his head hitting the top part as
Donnie gazed up at the ceiling, his mahogany eyes staring blankly up
at it in deep thought. Laying his head back like that, Donnie could
feel his eyelids start to droop as his vision started to get blurry.
A loud yawn escaped
his lips as Donnie could feel his entire body start to relax at the
position he was in. "No..have to stay awake." Donnie
mumbled gently, slowly righting himself as another yawn slipped past
his lips. Tears forming at the edge of his eyes as Donnie softly
rubbed at them both, effectively rubbing his all ready sore and red
Out of nowhere, in the
depths of his quiet lab a familiar sound drifted through as it
snapped Donnie out of his daze as he stared owlishly around. "W-What?
Oh! Shit the T-Phone!" Donnie exclaimed, his mind shifting to
full on alert as he turned to the right side of him. As he did that,
his right elbow knocked into the huge pile of coffee cups that, out
of boredom and a break from his never ending struggle to find
Leonardo, had painstakingly complied all of his used paper coffee
cups into a tower.
"God damn it! I
don't need this, and why the hell did I do this anyway?!" Donnie
exclaimed, eyes wide at the sheer idiocy that he had conjured up at
this. His right hand feeling around on the desk among the many coffee
cups, hearing the familiar ringtone blaring and trembling as a bright
smile split across Donnie's lips.
"Got it! I really
need to organize this desk a bit more." Donnie said with a
sheepish smile, softly shifting the phone to look at it as his eyes
widened at the image on his screen as he quickly touched the call
have you found him?" Donnie asked right away, his concern
evident in his voice as he recalled the last conversation the two of
them had. Ever since Leonardo had disappeared, Donnie knew that he
was being dependent on the Mighty Mutanimals more and more each day
while he focused on the data surfing more than the physical side of
"I apologize for the
late report Donatello," Doctor Rockwell's voice broke through
the phone as a soft sigh could be heard coming out from the chimp's
lips. "It has become quite chaotic on the streets with the
Purple Dragon's still prowling around at this point." he said
calmly as Donnie's expression shifted to concern. "As for your
question Donatello, I regret to inform you that we've failed to find
him this time. We've searched high and low for him throughout the
city," Rockwell said softly, the heavy feeling in Donnie's gut
dipping into a dark abyss as the reality of Rockwell's words hit him
"But yet, we haven't
found a single trace of him." Rockwell followed up with as
Donnie shot up from his seat, his hand slamming down on the desk with
a huge amount of force. "I'm sorry Doctor Rockwell, but that
can't be the end of it. I know my brother, he wouldn't just disappear
into thin air like this!" Donnie said urgently, his eye wide as
an image of his brother's slowly disappearing body going into the
dark abyss could be visibly seen in his mind.
Silence could be heard
on the other side of the phone as Donnie spoke this, his body tense
with determination and desperation. Taking a deep breath, Donnie
turned around where he stood and started to walk around. "Raph
still hasn't contacted me in the past six months, granted it had been
pretty hectic since we last talked but I know Raph. If he found
Leo, he would've contacted me. I know I'm asking a lot for you and
the Mighty Mutanimals but please, please give it one more try."
Donnie said softly, his pacing slowing to a stop as tears could be
felt on the edges of his eyes. Biting his lip to refrain from busting
into tears, Donnie did his best to compose himself as he awaited
"I understand your
concern Donatello," Rockwell's voice came through the phone,
laced with concern and sadness that Donnie didn't think that Rockwell
could possess as a deep sigh soon followed. "Give us about a
week to recover, I understand that you want to continue the search as
soon as possible but we've all been running ourselves ragged with
both patrols and searching for Leonardo." he said softly as
Donnie bit back his initial reaction to the news.
"Yes, of course
please rest up. All of you have been a huge help for us and I can't
thank you enough." Donnie said sincerely as a soft chuckle went
through the phone. "I'll remember that the next time that you
need another favor from a brilliant scientist such as myself."
Rockwell's voice went through the phone as Donnie's expression
shifted to a playfully annoyed gaze. "Thanks Doctor, I will."
he said in a dry tone before the two of them hung up, Donnie's figure
slumped slightly from him standing up as he took a deep sigh.
His mahogany gaze drifted
down to his desk; his body cracking as Donnie shifted over and sat
down on his chair. The familiar sound of the chair creaking as he
relaxed in it, Donnie's mind still running a mile a minute as he let
out another deep breath of air. Out of the corner of his eyes, Donnie
caught sight of a familiar object underneath his mess of paperwork
Digging his hand
underneath, Donnie withdrew a dusty T-Phone with a crack in the
screen. Guilt started to well up in his gut at seeing the crack,
remembering the day that both
Raph and himself drove Leo away. Biting his lip at the memory, Donnie
tried to calm down despite his eyes starting to mist over. "Get
a grip Donatello," Donnie told himself with a soft chuckle. "You
need to focus on finding him. It's the only way to make it up to
His gaze shifted up to
his diagrams and hypothesis of the possible locations where Leonardo
could've ran off to. Having searched high and low for each of them
only to come up empty was a heartbreaking experience but it just made
Donnie even more determined to find his brother. His hands curling
around Leo's T-Phone tightly, mentally wishing that the phone itself
could magically bring his brother home.
"Gahh! I just keep
running around in circles and getting no where." Donnie said in
an aggravated tone, laying his head back in his chair as he stared up
at the ceiling. His stomach growling constantly since this morning,
knowing that eventually Donnie would have to get up and make his
stomach shut up for once. But with no food in his system, Donnie
could feel the effects of the constant all nighters hitting him as he
He could practically feel
how heavy his eyelids were, it was almost like someone was pulling
them close. It was taking all of Donnie's energy to keep them open,
his right hand coming up to sleepily rub at his eyes again. Another
huge yawn following soon afterward as Donnie could feel his jaw
cracking at the action. "No..can't sleep just yet." Donnie
mumbled gently, his conscious slowly slipping away as the battle for
control was shifting in favor of sleep.
It was almost like
clockwork as a loud obnoxious noise ripped through the air,
practically shattering the silence enveloping the lab as Donnie
almost fell out of his chair in shock. His hands scrambling for his
desk, his chair falling backwards as Donnie practically slammed
himself onto his desk. Clutching it like a life line as his dead
practically flew open like saucers, Donnie's head whipping around
like crazy. "I-I'm up! I'm up! I didn't fall asleep! Nope, wide
awake!" Donnie exclaimed frantically as his heart started
beating like crazy.
Donnie started to rub his
eyes again, groaning softly at the soreness developing around them
before awkwardly fumbling around. Lifting his head up, Donnie could
see the faint blinking on his computer as his tired mind scrambled
for a bit before remembering his little brother's big grin filtering
through his mind.
Before Donnie could even
process it, his hand lifted up to push a button on his computer as it
activated the dimensional communicator, silencing the obnoxious sound
as a large projector like screen came out from a sphere like device
that was connected to his computer. Almost like a machine was booting
up, the screen turned white before bringing in color as a pair of
baby blue eyes were pushed up against the screen. As if trying to see
through the screen as much as possible as a shit-eating grin soon
“Hey D! What up?!
It's been so long since I've seen you bro,” a familiar green
turtle was visible as Donnie couldn't help but chuckle at his younger
brother's greeting. The loneliness in his heart was quickly
disappearing at seeing Mikey again. “Hold on a minute, D when
did you last eat?” Mikey asked, his jovial tone quickly leaving
as his baby blue eyes narrowed in irritation at taking in his older
Quickly replacing the calm
atmosphere, Donnie's smile turned into a sheepish one as he awkwardly
looked off to the side before meeting his brother. “U-Um since
the night before. But it's okay, I'm not even-.” Donnie started
to say but was quickly silenced by his stomach growling loudly.
“Hahaha! Oh man your stomach failed you on that! But
seriously,” Mikey said firmly after laughing a little. “Go
and grab yourself a slice of pizza or something. I'm worried about
you dude, you look like you haven't slept in weeks or even days!”
Mikey expressed quite clearly as Donnie rubbed his arm softly,
knowing that his younger brother was just being worried. His mahogany
eyes looked down at his feet in shame at the fact that he probably
did look horrible, considering how Donnie was looking at his brother
and seeing how healthy he looked. Especially considering how Mikey
was only 24 and looking even healthier then when he first left Earth
to travel with Renet.
“Okay, I'll go grab
some curry quickly.” Donnie promised with a smile, giving a
soft wave to his brother as he headed towards the kitchen. Everything
was still in its place since everyone left, Donnie barely needing to
worry about the overload of dishes or generally staying in the room
itself other then to make coffee or grab a quick bite to eat. He
couldn't help but think about all of the family dinners they had, his
eyes bristling with tears at the memory as Donnie quickly started
pulling out pots and pans.
Oh shoot, almost forgot
about the magic elixir here Donnie
thought to himself, a soft smirk slid across his face as he turned on
the coffee pot. The sweet smell of his favorite beverage started to
drift around the area as it helped with his tears a bit, helping him
focus on the task at hand. It wasn't long before Donnie was finishing
up on his dish, his mind still going in circles at what he still
needed to do. “I wonder if I could contact-.” Donnie
mumbled out loud before a certain someone came into his mind, making
his hand on the pan stop moving. It was as if a light bulb went on in
his mind, the mere thought of forgetting about her was hard enough to
believe as his eyes darted side to side.
could ask April,” Donnie said softly before quickly remembering
as he shook his head. “N-No I couldn't, she never did give me
her new phone number and besides she's probably all ready got her
hands full keeping Casey in line.” Donnie said softly, his grip
on the pan's handle tightening at remembering the young girl that
stumbled into his life nine
could still remember how beautiful April was when he first laid eyes
on her, knowing that this random chance meeting was more then that.
It was almost hard to believe how close they had become, it
practically made his heart soar every time they were around each
yet, I lost. I lost to him of all people
Donnie thought bitterly, the sounds of his brother in the background
echoing as he talked with his girlfriend kept the purple banded
turtle focused on the present but still allowed the memories to
resurface. It was
inevitable though, Casey was able to give her a normal life. She
deserved it after everything that had happened.
Donnie thought as he signed outwardly, shifting the sauce onto a
plate of rice that had been prepared before grabbing the plate and
his coffee as he headed back towards his lab.
knew that I was setting myself up for disappointment anyway, but it
just seemed too good to be true. Donnie
thought, his feet softly shuffling across the living room leading to
his lab as mahogany eyes landed on the vacant living room. Staring
over at the TV, Donnie could almost picture his older brother sitting
in front of it with his entire attention on the new episode of Space
big grin on his face as he took in the corny show with the eyes of a
child as that thought alone caused Donnie to bite his lip in sadness.
His grip on his coffee cup tightened as Donnie's mahogany eyes looked
over at the couch, almost making out the muscular form of his other
older brother. Raph calmly sitting on the couch watching Leo with an
amused look while pampering his pet Chompy.
need to snap out of it, this isn't helping me at all and besides,
Mikey is waiting for me in the lab Donnie
mentally berated himself as he shook his head before quickly turning
back on the memories, wanting to keep facing ahead and figuring out
what to do next.
soon as Donnie sat down, Mikey immediately pounced up as Renet
silently moved away from the communicator. Ever the hyperactive one,
Donnie could see his brother softly bouncing in place as Mikey
watched him chow down. “Oooh! Curry, man I miss that! Almost as
much as I miss pizza.” Mikey said excitedly, his feet kicking
back and forth.
comment made Donnie's innate curiosity perk up as he looked around at
what was behind Mikey. “You're not in Italy anymore?” he
asked curiously, the excitement in Mikey's expression quickly
disappeared. “No, stupid Lord Simultaneous wanted Renet to go
to another place and time period entirely. I didn't even get to try a
genuine Italian pizza or a cal zone! It was so horrible!” Mikey
replied overly dramatic at the trauma he just witnessed.
comment alone made Donnie roll his eyes and let out a chuckle at his
brother's own misfortune, his food all ready almost finished as he
took a sip of his coffee. Casually glancing up from his plate, Donnie
couldn't help noticing a distinct difference in his brother's
appearance. “Hey Mike,” Donnie said as Mikey stopped what
he was saying to pay attention. “You've grown taller since I've
last seen you.” he pointed out with a smile as Mikey's smile
widened at the observation.
So you've finally noticed? I know right! I'm about as tall as Leo
back when he was fifteen. I think I'm even taller then Raph now.”
Mikey said happily as Donnie couldn't help but chuckle, the
tightening in his gut following soon afterwards at hearing his older
sibling's name but he knew that Mikey was just being honest on the
matter. He also noticed that Mikey's muscles had become more
prominent then before, a clear indication that he was still keeping
up with his training.
can't call me pipsqueak anymore now! Heck, I might even be able to
use him as an arm rest now.” Mikey said with a mischievous
laugh, his mind all ready quickly shifting into his pranking state of
mind. A cheerful laugh soon slipped past Donnie's lips, knowing that
Raph was in for quite the surprise whenever he decided to stop by.
do realize that he'll still find a way to call you that. To him,
you're his pipsqueak younger brother.” Donnie brought up as
Mikey's lips shifted into a pout as he crossed his arms in front of
him. “Yeah yeah, the jerk always finds a way to win battles.”
he mumbled softly before Mikey looked off to the side, almost as if
he was in deep contemplation.
Mikey said softly as Donnie looked up from putting a spoonful of
curry in his mouth. “Speaking of Raph, has he tried contacting
you recently?” he asked gently as Donnie's hand tightened
around his spoon before gently pulling it out and looked off to the
side. “No, not since he checked out Dimension X for us. He's
been with Mona from what I've heard,” Donnie stated simply as
he shifted his food around on his plate. “Nothing else sadly
that I can tell you.”
probably still needs some time alone,” Mikey suggested gently,
his baby blue eyes softening into his adorable puppy gaze. “Or
he's on a planet outside of communication range.”
attention snapped back to his little brother's saddened tone; knowing
that a change of subject was in order. “I'm sure he'll contact
us soon, I wouldn't worry too much about Raph.” Donnie stated
calmly, wanting to divert the conversation. “You and Renet
still planning on staying in that dimension for a while?”
Donnie asked curiously, noting that it looked like different planet
in the solar system.
Renet told me all about the different kinds of sports they have
around here! I was
hoping on checking it out and showing them my sick skateboarding
moves!” Mikey bragged with a proud tone to it, Donnie rolling
his eyes a bit at his brother's cockiness.
Mikey's smile grow brighter at the change of subject, made Donnie's
mood lift a little higher every time that Mikey spoke as they
conversed back and forth with each other happily.
groaned softly, leaning back in his chair as he cracked his shoulders
again. Having just disconnected his call with Mikey, Donnie could
feel his mood lighting up a bit at the mere thought of his baby
brother. His mahogany eyes slowly opened up, staring at the ceiling
for a while as he processed the conversation that the two of them had
together. Idle small talk at best but it was enough to help each
other out even if it was just a little bit.
soft sigh left his lips, an object to his right catching his eye as
Donnie reached over and gently grasped Leo's T-Phone again. His thumb
lightly touched the crack on it as the memory of when his brother
threw it on the ground in anger flashed through his mind. “Everybody
misses you; they just want to make sure that you're okay.”
Donnie said softly to himself and to the phone as his hand curled
tighter around the phone. The memories of his family still together,
both the good and the bad filtering as he held the phone tightly. The
many battles and constant life or death moments that had happened in
their lives kept flooding through, the allies they had both gained
and lost as the end result of
the nine year war.
long years, of both fighting the Shredder and being apart from one
another. We drove the Kraang back for good and the Foot Clan
retreated back to Japan, with Shredder's head disappearing into the
dark abyss of the last war we had Donnie
thought back to their final battle, shuddering at how bloody it had
gotten and how everyone pushed themselves to the limit.
you,” Donnie said softly, Leo coming to mind as he remembered
staring at Leo's back as he looked out at the battle ground. “You
were always standing so strong, it was almost like you were a statue
that couldn't be moved.”
name slipping past his lips caused Donnie's to tremble, knowing that
the pain had to come out some time. It had to come out and be heard
and it was taking Donnie everything he had to keep it at bay, but now
it was becoming unbearable. Almost as if it was perfect timing,
Donnie's cell went off at that moment as he let out a surprised yelp
before groaning loudly.
snap out of it Donnie. Dr. Rockwell doesn't need any incentive to
give you his 'honest' opinion on the matter.” Donne grumbled
softly to himself, too focused on composing himself to look at his
you manage to find any clues Doc?” Donnie asked softly,
massaging his temples lightly to help ease the tension out of them.
His migraine still pulsating inside as Donnie relaxed into his chair.
It was eerily quiet on the other side of the line, almost making
Donnie worry that something bad had happened or had come up.
silence felt like it was going to drag on forever so Donnie got ready
to say something else when a familiar voice rang through the phone.
“Donnie? It's me, April.” the voice drifted through the
speakers as Donnie practically felt his heart stop in his chest,
his mind going blank for several minutes. It was almost too good to
be true, and especially after he had started thinking about her too.
His hand tightened around his T-Phone as Donnie struggled to get the
words out clearly. “A-April?” Donnie asked again, wanting
to make sure that he wasn't hallucinating or that this wasn't a
yes it's me.”
it was perfect timing, in this dark room, you led me to the light.”

my outline and trying to figure out HOW TO WORD THIS CHAPTER! Donnie
