The 2012 rendition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Nick is like the best show in the history of the universe ever at all and I will cry when it ends. I saw this picture on google while trying to collect images for a shipping chart, and well, we need to talk. 38.media.tumblr.com/cdc27be999…
<---- the death of my soul.
First of all, Raph is my favorite character in the show thus far. I used to really like Leo but, when they changed his voice I was just...no. I can't anymore. I still love the show and Leo is still cool but I can't deal. Raph has moved up the rankings because of that, and because I've just started paying more attention to him. Like, I mean, do you see those eyes!? The turtles have so oddly colored eyes but they are so BRIGHT! Gives the illusion that he's attractive. An ANIMATED TURTLE is attractive to me. I need help. Also, his personality. He's a tough guy but he doesn't have to fake like he has no feelings all the time and I love that! He's also really sarcastic and funny
Second of all, April and Raph is not really something I've noticed in TMNT. I just recently found out about the ship and have noticed snippits of it here and there. For example, I just watched the new episode. At the end, Donnie and Casey were getting along and Attention-Whore-April got mad jealous. Raph was like "I feel your pain" or something along those lines and she put an arm around his shoulder. I SEE YOU NICKELODEON, TRYING TO PLEASE EVERYONE!! I SEE YOU, YOU AINT SNEAKY!
And finally, third of all, I hate you. I hate you for making this and having it be so true. Like, as I started to notice hints of Raph and April's light flirting, I SEE IT!! I mean...Raph is trying to hold himself back but he can't resist a little instinctive flirting every now and then. I feel like I can relate to how he feels and THAT MUST SUCK SO BAD! Poor Raph.
(not even canon and I'm mad about it)
It's okay tho, because ever since a while after Kari's appearance, I've created "Raph's girl" in my mind. She will come sooner or later. She will. I know it.
