Very very nice. I love the emotion, Karai so wistful... Her true feelings show. <D
Seeing this prompts me to say I'm working on a short story of my own, where Karai is temporarily changed into a mutant turtle like the guys (because of an accident with the ooze/mutagen).
At first she's shocked, then incredibly angry. She doesn't want to listen to what the turtles have to say, even though they're trying to warn her about the new dangers she faces with being a mutant (can't walk in public, etc.). Of course, initially Leo is incredibly excited about the whole thing, but when he sees Karai won't be contented, he tells her that an anti-mutagen exists, but that only one man knows how to make it - i.e. Dr. Jordan Perry.
This then becomes the mission: find Perry and have him make an antidote for Karai. Since the turtles are the only ones who know Perry, Karai agrees to stick with them until they find him. Leo is happy that she's agreed to this (it will honestly be safer for her that way), but Leo is also unsure about how to proceed. He knows he only has a limited time with kame!Karai and wants to see if it be possible to convince her that she might just be happy the way she is - with him...
Sooo, yeah, that's my new fic. Apologies! Don't know why I felt like I had to spout all that here. ;
