I feel the need to submit a "HEY go read this!" to the TMNT universe here on DA. Many writers out there are familiar with Archive of their Own, and actually, I have a lot of my vave writers (and DA oddly enough) to thank for turning me onto it.
Inside that beautiful jewel of creative writing I came across ombre_des_dieux, and the magnificent chapter slashstory known as A Soul of Darkness and Light. It is truly, truly a fabulous piece of writing.
Now some of my favorite writers and artist here know that I positively gush about stories and artwork when they sing out in all their glory. ASDL is no different, and yet I feel like I might be the only one reading it, it's only had about 65 hits and were onto 32 chapters out of goddess knows how many.
Sooo, with that being said archiveofourown.org/works/2386…
Or A Soul of Darkness and Light by ombre_des_dieux.
