17 years after the prologue, the main story starts.
All the turtles are 34 years old, grew up apart and changed, mostly for the worse.
Basically, they are no longer teens, so they are MNTs. ;)

In this first chapter, I throw in Renoir, a new turtle.
It was a risky move since going beyond the original 4 turtles is kind of controversial, but in retrospective, I think I did my job well: he's not too Mary-Sue-ish.

Instead of making him the subject of unconditional positive attention from the old TMNT and giving him all the skills he needs to be a competent and capable character, I did the complete opposite.
Renoir is a womanizer, a big whiner, a self-centered narcissistic teen, a worthless and lousy fighter (like most of us non-ninjas, lol) and most importantly, he doesn't want to be with the old TMNT at all.
And the old TMNTs? They don't care about him as much as they care about their own problems and their conflicts between each other (the one person who cares about Renoir doesn't have good intentions).

As for the girls you see at the beginning of the chapters, one is Shadow Jones, who already exists in the official Mirage comics, and Davianna Wallace, an OC Japanese girl adopted by a couple from New York.
Shadow fights crime just like her father.
As for Davianna... well, she'll be trouble in later chapters. Damsel in distress. :\

This chapter was drawn back in 2004-2005, but I retouched it and added screentones last year to make it look prettier. :)

I just realized...  Raphael isn't really a book-reader, right?  He's actually rather boorish.  And if he named Renoir after glancing at a newspaper headline, how did Raph know how to pronounce "Renoir" and speak it correctly?  Tigerfog is from Québec and speaks French, right?  If one's native language is French, it's easy to guess how to pronounce "Renoir" or "Renouard".  But if your native language is *English*, a person may not correctly guess how to pronounce it unless they've already heard someone else mention Renoir's name.  (An uninformed English speaker might guess it's pronounced re-noy-er rather than ren-wahr.)  Again, Raph doesn't read a lot of books, so I wonder if that leaves...Splinter, who we all already know is a lover of the fine arts.  Did Raph first learn about Renoir from Splinter years before?

I also imagine that, even if Raph *did* first hear the name Renoir from Splinter, he may not be familiar with "Pierre-Auguste" Renoir.  I reason this, because in chapter 7, Raph didn't seem to be aware that Mikael "Buonarotti" is a reference to Michelangelo "di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni".  Even if Raph has heard of artist names, he may not know/remember artists' *full* names.

This was absolutely amazing. I mean, I've read all of the chapters so far and even commented on a few but I just HAD to come back and read again/comment on Chapter One.

Must say, I love the plot and the personalities of all the characters. I especially love Donnie in this, even though sometimes he makes me wanna punch him and shout "Quit being so emotionless yer bastard!" xD

Renoir, although an OC, is my favourite character out of all of them. I love his personality and how he looks, and I'm really curious to find out if he's a reincarnation of Augustus OR if by eating Augustus he gained his personality and memories.

While I think that Don takes a really sharp turn towards creepy later (as in, creepy that it makes me ill. He is my favorite, after all, and it hurts to know that he can go so... wrong. <__<;; Even more so since I know it's fully possible depending on the circumstances) but I gotta say, I love him in this first chapter. I love how he is potrayed later on, but still... creepy. o.o

"Science is power!" indeed. It will forever make my day. :XD:
