Summary: Chibi turtle fic for TMNTContests March challenge – Habit.
A/N: It is fairly much agreed across the fandom that Leonardo is the earliest riser in his family, often even beating Splinter himself but what if this was not always the case? In my headcanon, Michelangelo is probably the second of the four brothers to wake most days, unless he has had a gaming or monster movie marathon the night before. Raph is just a pain to get to wake up, though he is instantly alert if actual danger is present. Donnie however, just has bad sleeping habits, staying up late and working half the night if not even longer.
What if, however, the family's sleeping and waking habits became shaped by Mikey's own? That is how this little tale came to be.
While writing this story, I leant a little more to 2k12 setting but honestly, I could see something similar happening in 2k3 as well. Set a few months after the turtles get separate bedrooms.Habitual Riser
