“We just helped you! The least you could do is say thanks!”
“Alright, alright. But why don’t you leave fighting mutants to the big boys!”
A more completed version of this fanart from a little while ago. I’m a lot more please with this one than the original. At the time, I just slapped the unfinished version on the web because I was tried of slowly working on it and hoped it would get a couple of likes at least.
Then Alyson Kiperman Sullivan left a comment on Instagram so I knew I had to finish it, no matter how long it took.
Happy 15th Wild Force and Reinforcements from the Future!
Describing the progression of the different series of Power Rangers as a series of events.
MMPR 1 –
Wake up refreshed and have a shower of the perfect temperature. Waking up every
day is the same thing, so can get repetitive, but that shower is just the right
temperature, and feels great. You get dressed into your favourite clothes and feel
ready for the day.
MMPR 2 –
You’ve found out you’re out of your favourite cereal. There’s only oat bran
left, it’s got fruit in it, so it’s not totally tasteless, but still, it’s not
what it could be.
MMPR 3 –
You open your post. The first letter is a tax rebate of £5/$5, sweet! Every
letter you open afterwards is a bill or statement, reminding you that the 5 won’t
go very far. But still, it was nice to have. You also find another letter
telling you you’ve won something. You’re not sure what you’ve won, how much it’s
worth, or where it came from, but it’s there, part of your post for some reason
Zeo – You walk
outside, the weather is reasonable. It’s sunny, but not overly hot, no clouds,
a nice breeze to keep you cool, it’s nice, comfortable weather. It looked kinda
grey when you woke up, so this was a nice change to what you saw earlier, but
you couldn’t get used to it in case it gets too hot.
Turbo – You
go to your car, but it looks like somebody slashed the tyres. You go to the bus
stop, but the buses have been cancelled, all the taxi phonelines are down, and
you go to cross the street and some kid on a bike nearly knocks you down.
Things aren’t looking great.
In Space –
A pleasant looking stranger in a nice car pulls up and offers to take you wherever
you need to go, as a token of good will. The stranger is the nicest person you’ve
ever met, and talks at length with you about all the things you like. They
asked if there were any troubles you had going on, and offered any advice they
could, some advice may not have fit quite right, but it was really nice to
hear. Eventually, you are dropped off at work, you thank the stranger, and hope
to see someone like them again soon.
– As you step out of the car and look around, confused at how quickly the
previous journey had just gone, another, very similar car, pulls up behind. The
person inside looked very similar too, but…just, not quite the same. There was
something odd about this. This new stranger looked nice enough as well, albeit
a bit different, any other day you would’ve accepted the offer, but you’re
already where you need to be. The stranger gives a shrug as if to say “fair
enough”, but as they drive away, their exhaust sputters at you, leaving behind
an unpleasant cloud of fumes.
Rescue – You go into work, sit at your desk, and get on your with a very
average day of work. You have fun talking with your friends at work, talking
about the fun stuff you got up to at the weekend, but the conversation doesn’t
go very far. The whole time at work you have an incredibly catchy song stuck in
your head, but it’s a good song that you like. You look out the window, it looks
the same as when you were lying in bed, grey, making you kind of happy you aren’t
outside anymore. The temperature is perfect, just like it was in the shower.
There are a lot of comforts reminding you of when you woke up, but it’s never
going to be that comfortable, since you’re at work.
Time Force –
You’re out of work, hooray! The guy who usually sells ice cream out the front
of your work says his freezer is broken, so he’s handing out free ice cream. It’s
not your favourite flavour, but it’s a new one, and possibly a new contender
for your favourite. You see someone very pretty/handsome person sitting down
enjoying an ice cream as well. You go over and start talking to them, you talk
for a while and it’s very enjoyable. Before long, their parent comes over and
takes them away from you, and you never even got a chance to get their number.
Wild Force –
You begin wandering around the town, looking in shop windows, but secretly
hoping you’ll see the person you saw earlier. You look in shop windows,
occasionally going in to one and having a look around Things look nice, but you
know you shouldn’t be spending money (something you don’t have in excess). You
go in to your favourite shop, and there they are, it’s a great few minutes, but
then they get dragged away again, but they gave you their number, maybe you’ll
get to finally spend time with them.
– Screw what you said before, things are different now. You text the person,
hoping to arrange a meeting with them. They don’t reply as quickly as you’d
hoped, you start to lose hope. You figure you best go get some new clothes,
spending money you know you shouldn’t, but it’d be worth it, you hope. You keep
staring at your phone, awaiting their reply, waiting for something to pop up…still
Thunder – They reply, but at first, it’s just a quick “meet here at this time”.
You make your way there. The whole time, people are looking at you and smiling,
the occasional person complimenting you on your look. You strut with a smile.
You arrive at the location, they see your new look, acknowledge it, but don’t
seem to make as much of a fuss about it as you’d hoped.
S.P.D. – They
start the date off by telling you they’re leaving town soon, so you only have
the day. You have an uneasy feeling in your stomach the whole time, but know
that you need to try and enjoy yourself, so keep smiling as best you can. You
take a trip out to the cliffside to make it romantic and memorable. The weather
isn’t what it was when you left for work, it’s a bit more overcast, but looks
like the rain will stay away for now.
Force – As you walk along the cliffside, you trip on a stick and faceplant on
the ground. You and the other person have a laugh, it’s good fun, but you still
hurt, quite a bit actually. You landed quite near the edge of the cliff, that was
Overdrive – The edging of the cliff you’re on suddenly begins to crumble from
beneath you, and you fall dozens of feet. Fear completely engulfs you, you
begin to hope that this is not it for you, as this isn’t how you wanted things
– There is a safety net which catches you thank goodness. There’s no injury,
you’re fine, you’ve survived. You begin to thank whatever god or gods you
believe in that it was there, and things didn’t come to an abrupt and messy
RPM – The safety
net breaks, but it was only a couple metres above the ground. It hurts a
little, but you’re just glad to be back on solid ground. You’re now just lying
on the beach, as though it didn’t happen.
Samurai – A
wave from the ocean comes in and washes over you. Some water gets up your nose and
you’re pretty sure a jellyfish stung you, but there’s not much you can do about
it. The water was the same temperature as the shower, but this experience was
nowhere near as pleasant.
You realise that you were in fact very much stung by a jellyfish, and the pain
hits you like a truck. There’s nobody around for miles to help you. Looks like you’re
stuck, and you black out and collapse face first in to the sand. Another wave
washes over the back of you, covering you in more sand. Someone walking their
dog comes along and finds you. Their dog pees on you.
– The person that was walking their dog has taken you to a hospital. You have
been treated and are feeling fit as ever, you’re glad to be back and safe. And
the person you were with earlier, they had come in to see you at the hospital
as well, and your parents were there, and your best friend, and the nurses and
doctor. There’s an awful lot of people in the room, but at least it’s people
you care about, mostly anyway, you don’t know enough about the nurses to care
for them, but you’re glad they’re there, to help heal you and stuff.
Hey Mr. Bhaumik, great blog. I’ve been a ranger fan for all my life really and it’s nice to have an insider look. I was wondering do you think you could do a full blog post on your Hexagon pitch? It’s been the intrigue of fanfiction and speculators for years and i think a post like yours for Forever Red would be Morphinominal. Thanks dude!
The “Hexagon” was the original plan for the 11th season of Power Rangers to adapt the Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger season of Super Sentai for the season after Power Rangers Wild Force. The plan intended to continue some of the ideas and storylines from the Forever Red team-up episode of Power Rangers Wild Force as well as wrap up all loose ends from MMPR-PRWF. Just as PRIS essentially brought together and wrapped up the five or so preceding seasons of Power Rangers (MMPR-PRT), the intention was for the 11th season to bring together and wrap up all the preceding seasons.
They exist. Somewhere. You just have to believe they do. And if they don’t exist, they will one day, because the Universe will last until every single thing that could ever happen, happens. And if that doesn’t happen in this universe, it will in another.
