Anonymous asked: Is it me or is Leo's mask faded along the bottom edge? I always feel like the animators made it blurred on purpose

It is a little faded, yes! And I can’t tell you ho much I love that.

I can’t praise 2012 enough for their attention to detail! They’ve given all of the turtles distinctive looks, which isn’t something we really saw before 2012! And they paid so much attention to their individual details: even their masks are all custom apart from the colors. They all have different lengths and little nicks and stuff, it’s super awesome! 

sarah-raphie-21315 asked: What is your opinion on Raph and Leo's relationship? What do you think it is?

The way I see it, each turtle has their own specific type of relationship to each other.

I think Raph and Leo are best friends; I think they’re closer to each other than they are to Mikey or Donnie.
They definitely but heads the most, that’s obvious. They love to argue. There are times when I feel like Raph literally looks for excuses to yell at Leo, like how he’s constantly blaming bad things happening on Leo’s poor judgement.
I think a lot of that comes from Raph’s leadership envy, and I think Leo understands that. But Leo is always under constant pressure of failing and letting something happen to his brothers, and he doesn’t want Raph to feel that, so he fights back. In a way, I think Leo’s fighting is more of a plea for Raph to understand that leadership is actually a burden, and Raph is telling him he doesn’t want Leo to carry it alone. Neither of them know how to communicate that effectively, so it erupts into fighting.
But that’s what makes them so close: they can vent to each other. They can trust each other to see their vulnerable sides, which they’re both so closed in about. And that’s a huge part of being best friends: trusting each other more than you trust others.
On top of that, Leo’s chilled personality levels Raph out, and Raph’s anger/emotions encourage Leo to fight on. They’re like fire and ice, and opposites attract. And they compliment each other. They need each other.

At the end of the day, they will always have each others’ backs. They love each other and would do anything for each other. 
I absolutely adore Leo and Raph together. image

Anonymous asked: HI! :D I was wondering how do you set your Submit box to anonymous also so those that are too shy to show their blog can submit stuff to people. :)

I honestly have no idea how I did it!

I think that happened because I sent that submission to my Queue, which is something I’ve never done with a submission before. I usually just post them straight away. But sending it to my Queue was an accident, and it got published as anonymous. 

taylorsfandomstuff asked: Do you know when the next 2012 episode is being released?

Yes! The next episode, titled Mazes and Mutants will premiere on Sunday, April 27th!

The turtles will be playing some fantasy games that will actually come to life! We’ll finally be introduced to Sir Malachi in this episode, and I’m really looking forward to it! Apparently it has a total Jumangi-vibe to it!

Anonymous asked: I agree with you respect to Karai. Yes, she is the daughter of Splinter and yes, she was deceived by Shredder, but I DON'T LIKE IT. After all, before she try to kill our babies D: You think Karai will change now that she knows the truth??

I think this is the point where we’ll start to see a slow and gradual change in her. I think part of her doesn’t want to believe that she is Splinter’s daughter, because her entire life will have been a lie. And that’s definitely not easy to accept right away.

I think we’ll start to see her slowly detach herself from Shredder now. Like now she’ll finally start to accept the signs that he’s been giving off: he doesn’t care about her. Only the emotional turmoil she gives Splinter. 

Will I grow to like her? We’ll see. It’s going to take a lot of change, though. Hahaaa.

crystalfirealchemist asked: I must rant again, I was introduced to the tmmt fandom with the next mutation series I think I don't quite know for sure because I was uber young but yeah I think that's it because I actually have a limited edition Venus de Milo action figure with her sewer slider vehicle. Anyway I rewatched the series recently and I feel if they redid it with the same story line and focused more on story and character development and less on the battle scenes it would be more successful

Rant away, that’s why I have an inbox open for you guys. =]

That was one of the bigger problems with that series: they thought kids weren’t watching for the show, we just wanted to see cool action. False.

But another thing I hated about The Next Mutation was that I felt it focused way too much on Venus and not the boys. And then they weren’t even family making Venus (for me) not so much an awesome new character, but more of a potential love interest for one of the boys.

But aside from that, there was so much wrong with the show. I could go on and on…
