Guys imagine Angel Grove High School being so surprised that Kimberly Ann fucking Hart, ex-cheerleader is dating Trini.
Some reactions are bad (most likely from the people who write on Trini’s locker and Kim’s ex-friends and the few homophobic kids) but for the most part it’s just bewildered confusion. Sure, they’ve seen Kimberly in relationships before, but not like this. Also, they all expected Jason and Kim to get together. Hell, some kids even bet on it.
They’re just so confused seeing Kimberly actually looking happy, like in Biology Kim moves to the back to sit near Trini and their desks are always close and Kimberly’s constantly finding new ways to somehow be touching Trini. (Trini pretends to be annoyed but she smiles like an idiot when Kim grabs her hand underneath their desks.
Kim skipping class to hang out with Trini during her off period. Kim showing up to school one day in a yellow beanie and one of Trini’s yellow shirts and getting stares, but someone just mutters, “How the hell do both of them look good in yellow?”
Kim’s ex-boyfriends starting drama and poor Kim has to pull a fuming Trini off of them. Trini gets questions like, “Are you really dating Kimberly?” And it puts her in a pissy mood, (one, it’s none of their business and two, she’s not used to all the attention) but usually Kim just swoops in and starts showing Trini off. She whips out her phone and just goes, “Guys, look at her! Isn’t she adorable?” And before Trini can say anything Kim kisses her.
Trini’s locker no longer gets any mean notes, and Kim draws a saber-toothed tiger in the corner. (It stays there for the rest of the year) Trini also has pictures of her and Kim up in her locker because she’s just so smitten and is surprised to find that Kim has a picture of them in hers, too.
Kim’s teachers worry for a while because her grades start slipping and they low-key think it’s Trini’s fault (her english teacher walks past them one day in the library during lunch and Trini’s trying desperately to get Kim to focus) “Kimberly Ann Hart I swear if you don’t finish this paper I won’t kiss you for a week.”
“Did you just full name me?”
“There’s no way you could go a week without kissing me.”
“Kim! Just do the damn paper!”
“You’re just mad because I’m right.”
Kim’s teacher has to hide his laugh behind his cup of coffee, and both girls get flustered as they realize that he and the librarian heard their entire conversation.
Kim posts a picture of her and Trini on her instagram (with the caption ‘pink lemonade’) and almost the entire school likes it and that same week Trini asks Kimberly to prom in this big dramatic fashion. (Kim and Trini only show up to prom for five minutes to take photos and they go back to Kim’s house and eat pizza while watching movies all night)
The boys always getting the biggest smile when they see Kim and Trini being happy together in the halls.
okay but imagine the rangers ACTUALLY starting a band, and they turn out pretty good, and get some level of fame and zordon is just pissed like “YOU’RE MAKING IT HARDER TO CONCEAL YOUR IDENTITY” and he’s lookin to alpha for backup and alpha is just like “….they said i could play the triangle”
Guys!!! Trini may be an A+ student but I can also see her having OCD or dyslexia. She’s constantly double checking to see if she has all of her notes and they have to be in the right order. At first the rest of them don’t think anything of it, until one day Kimberly is hanging out at Trini’s house and Trini repeatedly checks to make sure that all the windows and door are locked properly and that Trini checks twice to make sure her homework is done correctly and in the right folder for her classes.
Trini notices that Kim has picked up on it, and Trini’s embarrassed and just mumbles, “It’s a habit, sorry.” And Kim is so quick to tell her she doesn’t need to apologize for it, and Trini just shrugs and says, “My parents are just glad I don’t do it at school. I guess I forgot to take my pills today.”
Or if Trini has dyslexia, Kim picks up on it almost immediately because Trini struggles with learning and memorizing the vocabulary words in Biology (their entire class does, but Trini spends hours trying to remember how to pronounce them)
Trini also struggles with reading out loud so whenever they’re in class together, Kim always reads out loud if the teacher calls on Trini because she knows that Trini hates the attention, not because she thinks she can’t do it.
When they do homework together, Trini gets frustrated easily, especially if there’s a lot of reading to when she has math homework, even with how much Trini enjoys that class, it’s hard for her to get it down and memorize things, so Kimberly tries to find ways to help her.
•Jason is definitely a star wars nerd™. Like one time Billy came over to help with chemistry homework and he spotted a millenium falcon toy in one of Jason’s shelves. Needless to say, homework was done in less than five minutes and they spent the whole night watching every star wars movie.
•Billy runs a power rangers instagram account. He got alpha five’s approval of course (mostly through bribes). He mainly posts pictures from training (in full uniform and mask!), what they’re currently eating and zord pictures. The account has over a million followers.
•Trini secretly loves boyband music. She has the backstreet boys, nsync and one direction on her ipod. She only plays them when she’s sure nobody can hear her.
•Kim is obsessed with spy/thriller/action movies. She likes to think of herself as the “black widow” of the team. Kim has a collection of dvds of every action movie ever.
•Zack is a secretly an excellent cook. With him and his mom, he learned how to cook meals suitable for her condition. He also learned how to make food taste better especially when it’s mixed with medicine and how to garnish them. He once cooked a whole salmon meal for the team at Kim’s house and everyone was shocked af.
Okay but Trini and the other Rangers all having an unspoken agreement to not talk about her scars from Rita’s attack.
They all want to ask Trini about it but they’re scared that she’ll just shrug it off and say it’s not a big deal, that it doesn’t bother her and that if they’re going to be Power Rangers, there’s going to be things that hurt them.
Until one day, they’re all just chilling at school during lunch and one of Trini’s teachers sees her and for some reason makes a big deal about her doing well on some sort of test and patting her shoulder before she walks away and Trini shifts uncomfortably. None of them say anything, they all just watch Trini carefully.
She’s still not used to the attention, so the stares she gets from them confuse her until she realizes that they’ve been waiting for her reaction.
Trini doesn’t feel pressured to talk about it, but as all five of them are leaving school that day she just blurts, “Some nights I can’t sleep. It’s gotten to the point where my mom got me some pills to help, but I don’t take them.”
Billy is quiet and nods, because after his dad died, there were some nights when he couldn’t sleep, too. Zack, Jason, and Kim, however don’t really know what to do with the new information. They’re not sure if they should mention that they’re okay with Trini needing help to fall asleep, or if they should ask if she has nightmares or if they should assure her that everything is going to be okay.
Trini goes on and says something along the lines of, “Sometimes I’m scared she’s going to come back, you know? Like, we got rid of her once and I don’t have nightmares or anything but it’s scary thinking one of you guys could get hurt, too. I think it would be worse for me if I didn’t have you guys. It helps knowing that you’d be here if I needed anything.”
They’re all just so taken aback by how honest Trini sounds and Billy tells her that since they’re Power Rangers, they’ll always there for her and that they’re like a family.
