!!Tropes in this fic include:
* AdaptationExpansion: In the series, the Hamato clan subsisted on worms and algae before they went to the surface and discovered human food. Here, it is revealed that they ''farmed'' the algae using a sunlamp Donnie built to cultivate it. When they stopped eating algae, they kept the lamps in storage until Michelangelo took up gardening.
* CrazyPrepared: Mikey forsaw that Irrilia would grow impatient with the tea leaves they had just harvested and switched the bowl with a bowl of leaves that had already been prepared.
--> '''Michelangelo''': Because mah ninja skillz is awesome-sauce!
* EmbarrassingNickname: Mikey has taken to calling Irrilia "Rilly." While Irrilia doesn't seem to mind, her father does.
--> '''Raphael:''' Don't call her Rilly.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father, Like Daughter]]: Donatello claims that while the four-year old Irrilia is usually adorable, she can be [[EnfanteTerrible "crazy-scary"]] when angered, a trait he insinuates she got from Raphael.
--> '''Raphael:''' Trust me, my temper's got nothin' on hers.
* RecursiveFanfiction: The premise of the fanfic is centered around Irrilia, a popular fanmade ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' character created by [[ Myrling]].
* RuleOfCute: While Donnie thinks that the mug Irrilia gets Splinter would make a better knick-knack than a usable cup, Raphael points out that she'll expect him to actually ''use'' it.
--> '''Donatello''': That doesn't seem reasonable...\\
'''Raphael''': She's four. She's not supposed to be reasonable. She's supposed to be cute.
