PostSubject: New Beginnings *Six years later* (December) *Hamato Clan*   Tue Jan 01, 2019 11:56 am

Six years had passed since the mall had became unstable. Raph had supported Bruce in the beginning, so when things fell apart, it was a real kick in the tail. He still liked the guy, but even he had to admit that it was time to abandon ship when the man would no longer listen to reason. Just like Carl with his group, he supported Leo's decision to move his clan elsewhere.

They had found a new location and after some work, it was secure enough to call home. What they did not expect, was the unlikely inhabitant that had been living in the surrounding forest of the building, scavenging the structure whenever food became scarce.

Raphael had always thought he and his brothers were the only of his kind, but his chance encounter while out surveying their surroundings proved otherwise...

A female mutant turtle. Her skin light toned in comparison to theirs, sporting an aqua blue bandana and adorning a cloak. The female was reluctant to expose herself, but knowing she wasn't alone in the world gradually warmed her up. Her English was broken, but she spoke fluent Japanese but over time, her communication became better.

The clan took her in, but the new addition was slow to grow on Raphael. In the early years, he was still adjusting to his robotic arm, and the mechanical eye that had been harvested from MetalHead. The nanos had bonded with his damaged tissue, but the new cyber eye was far from normal. He had to adapt to seeing half the world in infrared,  in heat detection. Certainly an advantage, but an annoyance while adapting.  It made him crankier than usual...

..and the female turtle...Mei Pei Chi, who Mikey nicknamed 'Venus', was so annoying! They butted heads. A LOT! What was even more frustrating, the girl was always right in every argument.  Ugh!

It was both a relief and an annoyance when Ve formed an attachment to Leo. But there were two things that dubbed that relationship hopeless. Venus was too much like Leo, and his older brother was already happily paired with Erica.

The months following Venus' heartbreak were..annoying..

She cried, a lot! Raph wasn't sure how someone could cry so much and NOT become dehydrated! And through the annoyance, deep down...he did feel bad for her. Rejection was something he was familiar with.

As the months ticked on, Venus' infatuation with his older brother seemed to fade. She became less annoying (or, maybe he was just falling for her), and turned out, she was a pretty good sparring partner. When not practicing with his brothers, he would have private, one on one sessions with her...

The years ticked on, and the two became closer. Still, Raph was afraid to get close to any female on that level, especially knowing Leo had been her first choice...

..but eventually, the inevitable happened. Breeding season hit, and this time, Venus made no attempt to mask her pheromones,  or her intentions of wanting to be a mother, and choosing Rapheal as her mate. A week long courtship, tons of sex had formed a bond, and left the female pregnant.

That had been eight months ago, and Raph finally let himself go with her. He allowed himself to fall in love. And he got to experience everything that he had been so jealous of Leo for having...pure love and acceptance..

But sadly, his love story would have a tragic end....

It had been a month, and the emotional  trauma was still crippling. He couldn't unsee the scared expression etched into her features... decapitated head resting on a bloodied table as the hunters butchered her, stripping skin from meat, her shell smashed open along the bridge to get at the flesh and....eggs...


Raph had went searching for her after she did not return from collecting herbs and berries. His heart stopped when he spotted the blood stains at the location where the hunters pack of dogs tore into her...

Her basket of trampled berries strewn on the ground...

The blood trail that led him back to their camp...

The blinding rage that overtook him when he realized what had happened. They had slaughtered her like an animal! Losing all control, he tore into the hunters, and the hounds that attacked...he killed them all..leaving women widowed and children fatherless, but rage prevented him from registering any of that.

Their fearful cries only vaguely registered as the adrenaline  began to ease, and the total devastation began to set in. Blood poured from the puncture wounds left by the now dead dogs, and the deep cuts left by the hunters machetes...

Warm tears rolled down his cheeks as he took in the carnage. His future...his love...gone...

His unborn children...two eggs of the clutch of three, rolling in a soup pot of boiling water...the third, a tear in its leathery shell...on the ground. Dropping  to his knees, Raph scooped up his only ray of hope, cradling it in his non-robotic arm..

After burying Venus and their dead offspring at rhe couples' favorite love making spot in the meadow by their pond, Raph lingered with the damaged, but still 'alive' egg...

Days later, he returned home, a bloody mess and more withdrawn than usual. It didn't take the family long to realize what had happened, but a month had passed, and he still could not relive the horrors with words. Most of his time was spent isolated in his room, blankly staring at the egg that rested within the warmth of an old incubator.

It had been determined that most of the babies development took place still inside the mother, unlike normal turtles.. his little one was expected to make his or her arrival any day..


...mixed feelings from the expecting father, but to know a part of Venus would live... it wasn't all for nothing...

Mikey had awoken very early and checked on the farmers farming their limited crops and the goats and chickens. Taking down figures about numbers and supplies. Leo would want them for the coming winter. Then he went to the storage and checked rations.


He paused upon closing the storage space hidden in what used to be a supermarket and thought about the last six years. Six years... since they had been forced from the Mall. Forced to gather who ever wanted to come with them - surprisingly it had been quiet a lot - and coming here.


It had not been their first choice. New York... Home ... would have been... but as Leo had stated on the road long ago when they were running and fighting for their lives and others they wouldn't make it. And home - was transitory - family was home. Donnie had the brilliant idea to take Bishop's compound. It was large, fortified and April and Casey had knowledge of the place and it's people. Annnnnd as Raph had pointed out they owed Bishop in any case for taking such great care of their father. The battle had not been easy but eventually... they won. Leo ending Bishop's life and reign over this walled off section of Atlanta and even bringing to heel what remained of the strange rat creatures (and everybody else mind) to heel with a roar, he even saved that awesome sound! ( https://soundcloud.com/maya-brenna/roar/s-xzGHe ) !! only if you play it on headphones be wary it was loooooud! though louder in person. Mikey still got tingles thinking about that - he didn't even know as turtles they could make such sounds and in the rare moments he found himself alone he tried it - getting caught once by his brother in red. How embarrassing!


On that day in the aftermath of battle and in the new dawn light Mikey grinned recalling Erica and Leo tying the knot. And now six years on with hard work and proving themselves they had a... well it wasn't perfect but they had food and their slowly growing number of citizens were reasonably content... for people living in mostly constant fear. In the early years they dealt with hordes and the odd attacks from other sometimes larger or more savage groups of survivors and super zombies and still did from time to time. Donnie, he felt was mostly to do with the drop in attacks. Their walled off section of city had better walls and weapons. And Casey handling all things security as he had been in the Mall, Raph had originally been appointed the job but his loss....


Mikey thought briefly over that time, four years after Leo and Erica tied the knot and this female turtle shows up. Mikey wondered if being the alpha was what initially attracted Venus to Leo. And the orange clad turtle had rather thought the turtle girls pheromones would win out. But his oldest brother seemed to resist her charms and remain loyal to his human... who was less human now - and would become less so... What did Donnie call it? Sexually Transmitted Mutism. Now the little... none human could roar herself and had claws and fangs of her own...


And jealous as Mikey was he made no play for the turtle girl. If Leo had been her first choice he knew the pecking order among his brothers - he would be last. But he did like her and good friends and had excited for her and Raph when that became more than friends... finally. The news and discovery of her loss and Raph's spree was still felt. None the less that it was Donnie … and Lilo and Stitch's efforts that kept the remaining egg... alive.


Leo so far had not pushed their brother to come back into the fold of the full busy community and Mikey wondered how much longer that would last. And Whilst Raph had grieved and Leo, Don, Splinter and Mikey did what they could for him, whatever he allowed them to do. Whilst April, Casey, Erica and Lilo had had to deal with those that had been left to grieve in the wake of Raph's vengeance. Mikey had a horrible feeling some might even be out there with savage communities plotting revenge. But that was what the rangings were for, monitoring their potential and known enemies.


Six years.... Mikey knew technically he was an adult now but he barely felt it... even when he was in the serious business of tallying their winter stores of food. Farming, food and rationing had been given over to Mikey to handle. And he was good at it even if he did say so himself. Somewhere Donnie was doing likewise with tech and supplies and Casey with security personel...  April with medical whilst Lilo was out and general population. Leo would be waiting for them all. As then they may need to send out raiding and scavenging parties into the surrounding Atlanta city on one side and the more wild forested side on the other in earnest before the cold weather really set in and limited movement.


Lilo, Stitch and Erica were still out on ranging. Keeping an eye on zombie hordes of all sorts... and other survivor camps especially Carl's as they tried to help out the young leader when they could.


He tucks away his written figures and numbers into his belt and grins, he didn't like being responsible, though he did well at his role. And he wasn't too pleased with being part of a leading coalition with his brothers, April, Casey, Lilo, Stitch and Erica. But at least he didn't have to make the big hard decisions annnnnd and and noooow he was done for a few hours...time to go find Shen and Yoshi. Hahhaha! oooh the mischief he and his niece and nephew could get into, hopefully sooon they would have another small playmate too! but for now... maybe even a prank! it had been some time since the last one!


As long as no one beat him to the floor he and his brothers shared on the top of the farming building! Maybe he'd pop by and check on his big red wearing brother too - and finding no kiddies he did just that. The farming building was the taller of the two remaining two in this section of Atlanta's out city, the family's quarters were way up the top. The community hall down the bottom. Mikey scaled it as easily as ever and landed with a thud in the garden space Splinter insisted on building pathways leading to rooms.


He bounces towards Raph's and knocks, he'd probably get threatened to have the green beaten off him but he was under Uncle and Brother duty to at least make sure there was life... even if he had to sacrifice some skin for mottling.

Yoshi gestured.... crouching.... sniggering

Shen gave a muffled giggle and scurried after him. The two knew nothing of the dangers of this world really... both sporting big blue eyes.

They were waiting.... waiting for an uncle, except their uncle Raph who was sad and their father had forbidden them to annoy him, or aunty or even Dad to come into the opened up floor of the 'great hall', with mum being away - neither the five and a half year old or his almost two and a year old sister knew why it was called that, or know it used to be an big office buildings entry floor now converted into the Atlantic Communities main eating and communal and big event holding place.
To the two little hybrid mutants, the older boy a little more turtle than his sister this place was just an awesome play ground... and armed with Uncle Don's pea shooter here by the entrance the place was currently the firing range. Well at least the space near the door!

A large hand gently pressed against the glass of the incubator, wishing he could have more contact with his little one, but knowing just how vulnerable he or she was... definitely not out of danger. The tear had been tended to, but the fact that Donnie and Lilo had been able to save his unborn was a miracle... the small blessing that he clung to....


"Your mom used to drive me insane...She was so stubborn..." Words soft and held so much sorrow.... "....I miss 'er. She was brave, tho...strong....like you..." He could feel the warm tears burning at the back of his real eye, but struggled to keep them at bay... He had done too much crying, too much grieving...But it was hard. And....seeing her like that....


The knock at the door pulled him from his thoughts. Seated on the bed, close to the dresser that held the incubator, he wiped at his eyes. Tempted to turn whoever away, but a part of him needing to break the isolation....


"It's unlocked..." He called out, sorrow in his tone, but inviting....

Mikey wished he brought the niece and nephew... if anything because they were so very very sweet and always brightened anyones day. If only for the duration of a visit. and for a pair so very young they behaved whenever they came to visit Uncle Raph. Mikey was more likely to annoy the red clad part robotic turtle then they were.


He let himself in at the call and made no effort to hide his approach, and dumped himself beside Raph on the bed, so close their shells clacked and he spared a small grin, not reaching to touch the incubator without some sort of consent from the dad to be... He'd learned during Erica's pregnancies that his big brothers were fiercely territorial over their pregnant mates and eggs and babies... Instead he simply one arm hugged Raph - everyone could use a Mikey hug!


And of course Mikey comfort churrs. - not breaking into his brothers isolation like a whirlwind as was his usual nature... more of creeping in like the old days when he had been young and just needed a snug. This time it was Raph who needed it. Keeping quiet letting his brother break the quiet if and when he wished.

Donatello's work was always several projects at once, his head full of this theory and that job and some thought jostling for prominence. Snout in papers, lists of some materials that would need to be scavenged if he was to make wind turbines for more power. They had solar, if he could compliment that with wind or even hydro maybe.


A silent sigh watching Mikey bounce up the side of the farming building to the top. but Raph had a special buzzer to gain, his, Aprils or Lilo and Stitch's attentions at once should anything look like it was happening with the egg.


Still he who have followed his orange wearing brother... but he had a blue wearing one to track down first and hand in his requirements for improvements to their current home. Also some ideas of where to begin looking for a secondary base should there ever be a need to leave here.


He'd reached the Great Hall, very Hogwarts of Mikey, and just out of the peripheral edge of his vision caught sight of the small hybrids crouching... and a flash of modified plastic toy. Ahhhh so that's where his pea shooter went. All his stash of coffee grounds betting Mikey pinched it and gave it to the niece and nephew. It was hard for any of them to not dot on these little blue eyed beauties. Especially given that Mikey had no doubt been teaching the two how to do a very good puppy eyed pout. -


Well his job was important and he should get these to Leo... but if he was fired upon there was no way he was not gonna go down for the delight of the munchkins.


Needless to say Donnie was unashamedly wrapped about their little fingers. And he wasn't alone he knew.

Shen's little tail went up - her back side waggled and she makes a widdle growl pouncing! "BOO!" she sported a speckled green and beige gold shell on her back, it vaguely resembled a leatherback turtles - not that she knew what that was...

Right now though it took on a different shape, as she leaps out to be the distraction her shell unfurls, into almost mouth or butterfly shape sections of schutes and thin leathery speckled skin stretched between them.



His own shell remaining firmly furled though his unfurled into a different shape, Yoshi leaps out and as he had seen Mikey do -


PPPPPPPHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHTBTBTBTBTBT!!


blew the biggest raspberry he could to send the small spit ball projectile at their unsuspecting uncle Don!

If he hadn't had a brilliant stage performance to do Donnie would have laughed. Mikey clearly had influence on the raspberry part of spit balling. Giving a huge fake gasp of "Oh Myyyy?!" and letting his papers dance to the floor from his oh so shocked grasp Donnie stumbles - staggers and gets in the too wide spit balls way -it splats against his shin.


"Oh noooo critical hit! may day may day ! turtle down... turtle dooown!" in a melodramatic clatter of a of chairs and tumble style worthy of Mikey the drama king himself!


And on the floor now Donnie waits for them.


Taking in the eager little faces. No one had known Erica had been pregnant, in hindsight the smallish bump and her scent should have clued them in... No one knew the first morning Erica took their brother into her bed she'd asked for children... that she wanted Leo's children, that they had been actively trying. And she'd hardly looked rounded when four months after fleeing the wreck of the Mall and barely just after having won this place and with a scared new community Leo had come to him and Lilo in the dawn stressed out of his mind that Erica was miscarrying.


And Donnie and Lilo and a curious April had all guessed so to, though that quickly changed when they examined her and determined she was in fact in the stages of laborious egg laying, like monotremes, managing to lay a vaguely oblong, large foot ball sized egg. This was why they had an incubator for Raph to use, Yoshi had hatched two months later. Six months all up.

And Shen was as much a surprise, again Leo and Erica had not told anyone they were expecting, and again Erica had barely had a pudgy belly and again missing the smell signals. But one morning Leo came to the communal breakfast with a new smaller egg in his arms. Three months Erica had been pregnant, and Shen hatched after three months incubation. Unlike Raph's their shells had been intact and they were able to be handled for brief moments with Leo and Erica both breathing down your neck.


Donatello wondered with amusement if there was going to be more little hybrids from those two, and considering how active they were he was shocked there was not more already. Yoshi was three when his sister hatched. And whether or not Raph's one would need milk like those two had plagued Don's mind. Infact he knew Shen at two and a half years was just barely beginning to self wean. Well at least it meant Erica had milk to spare. Some had already been stored and Lilo had a small list of different types of teats for bottles just encase Raph's needed special ones... or maybe it would refuse and only drink straight from the source? not that he thought Erica would refuse, despite some tension between herself and Venus she had always been sweet to the turtle girl... mmmm could be being a full mutant turtle off spring, it may not need milk at all...


It gave the nerdy turtle a thrill to think about it and a bit of a head ache... though he shoved such thoughts aside to focus on playing with his nephew and niece.

"hehehe - hehehehe!" A giggling Shen danced excitedly under the fluttering papers - gathering them up and scrunching them in her arms and scurrying to Don and Yoshi crouching by their very tall uncles head and shoulder her little grinning face hovering right over his her shell furled again, "oooowwwwies?" she asks of him.


"we dot you Unel Don!" Crows the little turtle with his shock of shocking blond hair racing forward to jump onto his uncle's plastron, grinning down at him. " wass we like nin na?! Like Daddy?!" he asks eagerly. Spitballer in his hand.


Both their tails wagged. Yoshi's lightly tapping on Don's plastron.

A laugh and lightly ruffling the blond mo hawk Don sat up, using that hand sliding down Yoshi's shell to sit the boy in his lap. the other catching Shen and pulling the little girl into his lap too with her brother nuzzling the two - "no precious one no owies, and yes great planning lilninja just like your dad." he answers both of them smiling and chuckling.


Life was hard, they had enemies and there was the possibility of having to flee again... but these moments helped it seem less so.


Unlike Mikey and Raph he was not jealous about Leo having Erica, or the lilones he had actively not sort out Venus or Lilo as anything more than a good friend, a small part of her being into Leo first then Raph... but mostly because... well.. He and Casey and April were all three, in love.



And he was as content with that as they were- though with the two beautiful hybrids in his lap he seriously considered bringing up with his mates the idea of adopting if there were to be parentless children.



Seeing his papers in Shen's arms he grins, "those are for your father when we see him alright?" he says chuckling and preparing to stand, barely noting a few awwwwws and nawwwwws from passing community members. "We should find him and then all go spend time with Uncle Raph and cousin - what do yous say?" he rocks and uses the momentum to launch himself to his feet cradling the two children safely to his plastron. Leo and Splinter about this time would be finishing up training of the young community members, older ones later in the evening. Leo refused to make the same mistake as Bruce and let people not prepare themselves for the worst possibilities of this world they lived in. So the mornings their 'Lion King' as the community members had a habit of calling Leo (probably cause of that roar) would be with their father focusing on teaching self defence to their young people.


Time to see if they were done.

A slight grunt of annoyance as shells clinged, that tingly feeling was always something that Raph was not fond of, but annoyance melted at the one armed hug, and the soft churrs of his youngest brother, soothing.

The silence stretched on as Raph's gaze continued on the incubator, heart skipping a beat every time his child bumped the inside of the egg. It wouldn't be long, and while excited... a part of his mate would live on in their child...he was scared. Could he do this alone?

....He had no choice.... and his father had raised four...FOUR...all by himself...

"How's everyone?" He asked, both curious and trying to distract his mind....

Smiling, Mikey nuzzles Raph's shoulder and nips the scarred tatt there playfully, "Probably heading this way for shared lunch with yours truly..." and pretending to recall, though with an entirely playful grin, "Oh and you too bro..."



And he could literally see what was on Raph's mind... it was all over his face ! and so rocks against him lightly, making their shells scrap again. Only briefly. "Your not going to be alone Raph. Single dad sure... not alone." churring, comforting his brother and smiling watching the movements of the egg. "Dad.... Leo and Erica.... you have their experience... and natural talent" pointing at himself with all the smugness he could playfully pull off. "and Lilo and April and Don and Casey..." a wink.


He wasn't going to let Raph ever think he was alone. Their brotherhood was ever more protective and close after the incident of Bruce.


Mikey loved it.


And then more generally speaking, "We'll survive the winter as far as food goes, Hope your not yet sick of goat. Or chicken. Lilo, Stitch and Erica are ranging but will be back." He had no doubt those two girls and alien would find their way back at so much of a hint of the egg hatching. Lilo was as invested as they were to ensuring survival. And Erica... might have to be wet nurse. If she had to be, on that note, " She left a hefty amount of milk so we should be covered... either way." nodding to the egg.
