|Artwork that I draw & work on…they are so strange to me as I look back from the beginning, because I am always striving to go farther & farther… My worst habit is that I work too hard on my art & not getting a life…. LOL|
Dan Strate-BCE Badboy-Dan Strate-BCE Badboy- by sharpshooter01
Appearance:Dan Strate is usually seen wearing a black Hoodie with a white lighting bolt on the back, a pair of purple and black camo pants, some fingerless gloves, and a pair of running shoes(black). His face is somewhat sharp, having to do with his bone structure, and his nose is slightly pointed. His eyes are an intense green color, making them appear almost emerald like. His hair, when his hoodie is down, is spiked and and red with black highlights. He has a tall and lanky look to him as well, and is missing part of his right ear.
Personality:Dan is not one to become friendly, usually scowling or assaulting those who don't know when to leave well enough alone. It's not that Dan is a bad person, he just has a crappy attitude. He sees the world as one big steaming pile of [CENSORED]. Of course, his reasons for this are very valid, seeing as how he was hurt at

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results.

At first I was too busy with school & classes & life to make a reaction & I could not see the show until it was available on iTunes…. Then I heard people screaming about it in either excitement or in anger… I was shocked…wasn’t this just a filler episode? Well apparently a lot more happened than I realized & so I downloaded it & to my surprise…WOW! APRILTELLO IS CANNON! I was shocked… NUMB really…. I had never thought that one of my favorite OTP’s would ever come true. I wished & hoped & was on a rollercoaster of feels, until I felt that I was just too dizzy from the ride to go on. Then CIRO made the world spin on its side & I LOVE IT! Thank you CIRO! THANK YOU!
Now I hear people scream about how it was just another kiss &she is supposed to be with Casey forever, then I started to see the true UGLY face of CRAPRIL. Then say that she will never be happy with Donnie this & that! The only purpose in life to be with someone is to be married to the opposite sex of your own kind & have kids…. (hold the phone, are CRAPRIL’s the tea-party of TMNT? Also….they are 17 years old guys! What is this? The 1950’s? MTV’s Teen Mom?) … All I keep seeing was how uglier & uglier & more conservative rhetoric kept spewing out… So April (who is MUTANT by the way… should stick to her own LOOKING kind? Does this sound like CRAPRILs are about to grab pitchforks & torches & mob the streets?)
I love Donatello’s character, he is in a sense the underdog to Casey, because of WHAT he is, not who he is, or how he thinks, or by his intelligence & consideration… I am glad that April sees through his shell (sort of speak) & right now she is in a bad place but knows that Donnie is there for her. This is amazing story development of characters! WOW!
Now for the scene…OH man, it was something out of a romantic movie… Now she is not just looking at the sunset in a flowery dress waiting to be claimed like a prize, nor is she….baking a cake, nor is she picking flowers or doing what you usually see a Mary-Sue girl doing that makes her seem… enchanting to kiss. Nope, instead she is cutting wood for the house. Wow! That is a first I have seen in a show, she is hard working & sweating & just doing chores. She looks at Donnie unguarded & open to him… & with a sense of strength you can feel she carries with casual ease.
He confesses to her showing her his vulnerability & acceptance to what he perceives is what she wants. He is not trying to convince her to see things his way nor show he has any resentment towards her. You can see in his eyes that he can’t hide the sorrow of the circumstances of what he is & of his broken heart… He was not JUST saying he sorry, but that he should limit his dreams & not see himself as equal to the rest of the world… he said he was JUST a mutant… like someone would say, I am JUST a loner…I am JUST what I am & can’t aspire to be anything more…
April saw more than just him telling her he is not bothering her anymore… but that he was QUITTING, GIVING UP! Something April knows is not like Donnie at all. She may not show her feelings & she knows things are in a bad place, but she is telling him not to give up & just be you. Her Donnie…her friend & something more…So in that kiss, April told him, you ARE SPECIAL… to her. Don’t knock yourself down!
The scenery, the tension & the emotions in their eyes…. Oh wow… & then…the kiss. So quick but not cartoony or silly or too serious… it was ….ZEN… & mysterious too… in kid’s shows a kiss really does mean something in them. Also…. It was on the lips. I am so glad that he said he understood nothing, because that how most guys feel universally when dealing with a woman’s heart.
SO HOW ABOUT IT? MAKE THE 10TH of October OTP Kiss Day!
