Just because it didn’t go the way you wanted with Irma doesn’t mean it was poor writing.

"I’m calling Nick out."

Have you actually listened to how ridiculously self righteous you all sound?

You could pick fault with every single character in this…

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

They basically got rid of one of the only three reccuring girls in the whole series that wasn’t just some background character (or Kraang Prime)

Because yeah, that was exactly what this absolute sausage fest needed

Do we really have to have April be the Smurfette?

Why can’t a girl get to have…

Actually apriltello still has a chance.

Have hope. April is just conflictef right now and wants tk avoid it as much as she can atleast till she can figure out her feelings. And I think she’s using casey as a cover….or something like that. I still have hope for the two.

To be honest, I care much more about the thing with Irma than Apritello right now. I had been looking so much forward to have her finally meet the turtles, get involved in the plot, or even just hang out with them. I only wanted a female presence in the show that wasn’t April or a snake mutant that shows up for five seconds at a time.  

And I think Capril is pretty much a done deal at this point, so eh. And even though Apritello has produced so much adorable fan art and fan fic, in the show itself I kinda wanted April to be single. I kinda wanted her to tell both boys to cool it and just get on with her life for a while. She’s only sixteen/seventeen, after all. I’m just scared April will somehow end up being less important to the story just because she gets together with Casey, and the show will have a season or so where the turtles go into space or whatever without them, That would suck.

Do we really have to have April be the Smurfette?

Why can’t a girl get to have a female friend in this show?

I don’t think I have ever been this surprised by a TV series, but it really wasn’t a good surprise

All I’m saying is that there better be a real Irma out there somewhere, but I’m sure there isn’t

And wow, Gilbert Gottfried, really? Not even a female-sounding Kraang? Fuck that.

Other than that

The fight scenes with Leonardo were absolutely amazing

So were the fight scenes between Splinter, Shredder and Leatherhead

And Mikey and the couch was funny

And Mikey hugging Raph was touching

And the turtles and April leaving the lair made me cry

And the thing with Karai at the end was great

I can tell you this, though, I am now basically scrapping all my half-written TMNT fics, considering a lot of them revolved around Irma and/or Apritello

I give up

I knew Apritello was probably doomed, but the thing with Irma? Did not see that coming at all

I am so, so disappointed

and because I ran out of room: 

BOOM! THANK YOU. I’ve been screaming about this for who knows how long, but I cannot word it as perfectly as some of you do. I hope people realize what queer baiting actually is and start taking it with the seriousness it deserves to be treated with.
