Trimberly Week (D7)

Well this has been fun! Be on the look out for another chapter for “The Waiting Game” coming soon! Also, I watched “In A Heartbeat” (encourage everyone to go see that, and if you’ve seen it, go watch it again) which is where I got the idea for this.

Soulmate AU

  • In this world, everyone’s Heart glows depending upon their emotion
    • Yellow = Joy, Trust, Embarrassment
    • Blue = Sadness, Thoughtful, Calm
    • Red = Anger, Frustration, Courage
    • Green = Disgust, Envy, Sickness
    • Black = Fear, Mischief, Pain
    • Pink = Love
  • Hearts can occasionally “come to life” and keep us company in times of need
    • They’re our first and closest companions
    • Hearts show us our truest selves
    • But Hearts are also incomplete, a little like a puzzle piece, and your Soulmate has the other half
  • It was at Trini’s 11th birthday party when her Heart first glowed bright Pink 
    • Not like it did when she hugged her Mami or Papi, but for a person who wasn’t family
    • Her name was Kira and they had been friends since Trini had first moved in next door
  • She gave Trini her favorite dinosaur sweatshirt, the yellow one with a pterodactyl on it, and Trini’s Heart thundered excitedly
  • When June Gomez saw her daughter’s Heart glowing for a girl, she spent the rest of the night yelling at her daughter until Trini ran to her room crying
  • Her Heart spent the entire night curled up in her palms, comforting her
  • They moved a week later
  • Kim’s Heart first glowed pink when she was 14
    • Ty Flemming was a sophomore and a rising football star and the second they made eye contact her Heart lit up the hallway
    • (It probably should have been telling that Ty’s didn’t…)
    • But he was Kim’s first real boyfriend and she fell a little too hard, a little too fast
  • It was right before the summer of their senior year when Kim caught Ty and Amanda sleeping together
  • Her Heart remained dark blue for an entire week, before one night it grew reddish black and she sent Ty a picture of Amanda
    • He passed it around the school and blamed it on Kim who blamed it on Amanda and punched Ty’s tooth out
    • She landed herself detention every Saturday for the rest of the year and through the summer, along with Jason Scott and Billy Cranston, who became two of her closets friends
    • She finds it incredibly adorable that Jason’s Heart glows pink whenever Billy talks; he thinks he’s good at hiding it, but the boy is fooling no one
  • Trini moves to Angel Grove that summer and spends the majority of it trying to get away from her overbearing mother or taking care of her little brothers
    • Her brothers could be annoying sometimes but their Hearts always glowed a pale yellow-pink whenever she played with them
    • And they were much cooler about her Heart flashing pink whenever a pretty girl walked by than their mother was
    • Especially considering she once saw Mateo’s Heart glow pink when he was playing with his old friend Wally
  • Trini meets Zack one day when she and her brothers are out hiking
    • He scared the shit out of them when he swung down, hanging upside down, from a tree along the trail
    • Trini was so startled she punched him in the face and knocked him out of the tree
    • They become best friends
  • Senior year at Angel Grove gets a little interesting when Zack and Trini walk through the front gates and Trini’s Heart suddenly leaps out of her chest, twirling and glowing pink, pink, pink!
  • And Trini’s cheeks match in shade as well from everyone staring at her and her Heart starts dragging her across the quad
  • Kim was waiting with Billy and Jason to get their lockers when her Heart suddenly bursts with light and jumps out of her chest for no apparent reason
  • She’s so shocked she doesn’t even have time to stop herself before her Heart starts pushing her down the hall and out the front door
  • And everyone watches in stunned reverence, as Kimberly Hart pin-wheels her arms to keep her balance and a girl they’ve never seen before digs her heels in the ground, their Hearts pulling/pushing them along until 
  • CRASH
  • Kim’s arms automatically wrap around the girl she ran into and their breath leaves them
  • Trini has just enough time to look up into the eyes of the girl who caught her before there’s a flash of light and suddenly their Hearts merge together and glow White
    • (White = Soulmates)
  • They’re both in shock, for different reasons
    • Kim’s surprised because her Heart has been blue/red/black for just about her entire summer and suddenly its glowing pink and now white?
    • Trini’s panicking on the inside because while she’s always known her Heart would glow for a girl, much to her mother’s despair, she never imagined she’d actually find her Soulmate
    • Or rather her Heart found her Soulmate
  • Finally Jason, the boys having chased their friends, coughs and startles both girls into motion
  • Kim is the first to break their silence
      • Kim: “So… I guess we’re Soulmates! I’m Kim.”
      • Trini *still shocked*: “I know. I mean, no, I don’t know. You, I don’t know who you are, but I mean like, yeah we’re Soulmates… uh.”
    • And Kim’s smitten
    • Damn her Heart can pick em
  • The bell rings before they can talk more and as they go opposite ways, their Hearts separate but remain White while glowing pink
  • They endure curious stares all day and Kim’s a little surprised when she spots Amanda and her Heart glows a yellowed green
  • Trini and Kim end up having biology together and both their cheeks grow warm when their Hearts reanimate once again to merge
    • The teacher gives them a look, surprised and a little annoyed by the distraction, so Kim stuffs their Heart in her backpack and sits beside Trini
  • They pass notes the entire class, flirting and hiding their giggles, and Kim walks Trini to her locker where she asks her out on a date
    • And Trini flushes hotly but their Heart glows pinky and she accepts
  • They go to Krispy Kreme and spend nearly four hours just talking, losing track of time until Trini’s mom calls and Kim drives her home
  • She walks Trini to her door and when she leans in to kiss her, Trini stops her, saying she had a goodnight and that she’ll see her tomorrow, before going inside
  • And Kim stands there, confused and slightly panicked that she did something wrong, but then the door swings back open and Trini launches herself at Kim, kissing her
  • By the time Kim gets home, her parents are home and her Heart is still glowing pink
    • They immediately notice her White colored Heart and barrage her with questions on her newfound Soulmate
    • When Kim admits its a new girl at her school, her parents are hardly fazed, and insist on meeting her, dinner at the Hart house Friday night
  • Trini manages to avoid her mom that night but she gets caught the next morning and has to tell her mom that her Soulmate is a girl she met at school
    • But Trini’s fears of her mother’s retaliation go out the window when her father congratulates her and says how proud he is, how they both are, of her
    • Her mom remains quiet, but she does offer Trini a nod and a tight smile, so, small victories
    • Her brothers desperately want to meet their sister’s Soulmate and she agrees that they’ll all get to meet Kim, when they’re mother get’s a little more comfortable and they’ve dated a while
  • When Trini walks through the front gates of school her Heart leaps out of her chest and quickly pulls her over to Kim who’s waiting with the boys by the front steps
  • This time when Kim wraps her arms around Trini to catch her, Trini wraps hers around Kim’s shoulders and they smile before leaning in to kiss
    • Sure they’re not actually dating yet, but they’re Soulmates, they have forever to just take their time

Bonus:

  • Trini’s mom meets Kimberly though she still isn’t comfortable with her daughter’s sexuality, so things get tense in Trini’s household
  • It’s alright tho, because Kim’s parents more than make up for it; they absolutely LOVE Trini
  • Jason’s Soulmate ends up being new kid Tommie Oliver, but Jason’s still in love with Billy and Tommie falls for Zack, so they end up just being really close friends and chose their true loves

It was just something that I, it made me really happy…’’

– - – - – -

imagines no.5

• So, you actually steal his numero uno and infamous cloak without him catching or noticing you? Wow. I’ll clap my hands for you.

• What will Cayde do to know that his signature cloak is gone? Blame Eris? Ask Amanda? Banshee-44? He will ask everyone if they’ve seen his cloak. Everyone, including the Guardians and their Ghosts.

• Then his mind clicked. You. He haven’t seen you throughout the day and the Tower.

• His Ghost had found you, which, you were chatting with another Guardian and the Guardian didn’t noticed how mad Cayde were.

• His optics dimmer in anger as he stomp his way towards you. But. BUT! There is a but when you turn around and greet him.

• Cayde swore the universe had dissolved his anger. In fact, the anger was replaced with admiration.

• He will not admit it but he thinks that you are super duper cute with his cloak. Will not say it right in front of everyone.

• Except his Ghost and your Ghost.

• You left the Guardian and ask Cayde to follow you back to your ship.

• And this is where Cayde blurted out how adorable you looked with his cloak. It may be tattered and old. This old cloak can still do wonders to whoever wears it.

• Cayde thanked the cloak. He knows that he can’t kiss you but he can offer you a hug.

• But you managed to caught him off guard when you kissed his cheek aND BROKE INTO A SPRINT.

• He let you have a 5 minute head start before chasing you.

The Gruesome Murder of Laura Ackerson

Laura Ackerson (27) had been missing for over 10 days when her remains were found in an alligator infested creek in Texas, on July 24, 2011. She had been dismembered and authoriries were able to recover her head, torso, and part of her limbs. Her cause of death couldn’t be determined with certainty because of the condition of the remains, but the autopsy showed signs of asphyxiation and a possible stab wound to the neck.

Laura had been in the middle of a nasty custody battle with her ex, Grant Hayes III, over their two kids, who were 3 and 2 years old at the time. Grant was an aspiring musician, drug addict and had a tendency to use and manipulate women. During his relationship with Laura, he was abusive and openly cheated on her with other women, among them Amanda Smith. The extent of Grant’s deceit was so, that Laura believed they were married (they had a ceremony and all) and she only found out he’d never signed the marriage license when he sent her a picture of his wedding to Amanda, ending the relationship between them for good.

Grant, who had temporary custody of the children during week days, and Amanda were going through financial trouble because he’d spent most of her inheritance recklessly. On top of that, Amanda became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl a month before Laura went missing. The upcoming court date didn’t look good for him, especially after the appointed psychologist had reported he exhibited “illogical disturbed thinking” and seemed to want to erase Laura from their kids’ lives. On the other hand, Laura was trying to improve her life, starting a business and doing everything the court requested of her.

On July 13, 2011, the last day Laura was seen, she was lured to Grant’s apartment in Raleigh, North Carolina, with the pretense that they were going to let her have the kids for a few days. What happened after, we can’t be sure, since Amanda and Grant had different versions, blaming each other.

According to Amanda, Grant said that Laura had tripped and hurt herself and he asked her to take the kids out so he wouldn’t see their mom like that. He later confessed to her he’d killed her and forced her to help him dispose of her body by threatening their daughter. They traveled to Texas, where Amanda’s sister lived, and threw her dismembered body in the creek. The sister, however, testified in court that during the visit Amanda told her she had “hurt Laura bad” and that she was dead.

Grant played the race card as much as he could and then said Laura had signed a contract in which she agreed to give him full custody of the children in exchange for 25,000 dollars. Indeed a document with two different handwritings stating as much was found in his apartment, and although an expert said part of it had been written by Laura, all the people who knew her said it was impossible she’d give up her kids, especially considering all the changes she was making to get custody and the fact that Grant was broke. According to Grant, Amanda got angry at the agreement and accidentally killed Laura, and he just helped her cover it up to protect her. He finished by saying that “Laura got herself killed”.

The couple was tried separatedly and given the amount of evidence against them, they were both found guilty. Grant of first degree murder, and he got a life sentence without parole, while Amanda will spend 13 to 16 years for second degree murder, as long as her conviction isn’t extended by some added charges that were filed last year. In 2014, these upstanding lovers divorced.

This tragic story is told in the book Bitter Remains, by Diane Fanning.

Sight Beyond Sight: Chapter 1

Summary:  When Kimberly lost her eye sight, she gained something back in return and entered a world that she never thought existed. 

AN: I had this idea for a while where I wanted to combine two of my favorite things in one fic. The power rangers movie and my current obsession with Daredevil on netflix. This is also my first attempt at writing in a blind person’s perspective. So for you experienced writers out there, if you want to hook someone up with some tips (any kind will do. I’m a bit rusty) that would be appreciated. Also this hasn’t been beta’ed yet so I do apologize for any mistakes that I made. 

And since this does deal with blindness I do have to throw in a trigger warning. With that enjoy the first chapter !

“First thing you gotta understand is nobody feels sorry for you for being blind girly. And nobody ever will. Cause when it comes to being born lucky… you won the friggin’ lottery.” - Stick


Kimberly Gasped as she shot up from her bed. The first thing that she noticed was that everything was loud. Loud and more refined than anything she’s ever heard. It was almost as if she was in a dark room with no lights on and someone turned up the volume of a very large and sound capturing speakers. 

And everything else in the room felt so bright and intense yet she still shrouded in darkness. She frantically reached her hands out despite her current blinded state wanting to touch something. Anything that she could get her hands on just to regain some level of normalcy as the sounds continued to get louder. 

She could hear the continuous drip from what she assumed was her IV line next to her bed along with the heart monitor beeping in an steadily increasing pace.

“What?..whats going on?” Kim called out bringing her fingers to where her eyes should be only to feel the scratchy fibers of the hospital issued bandages over her eyes. Each touch of fiber on her fingers felt like she stuck her hand in a ball of coarse yarn. 

“Where am I? Mom? Dad?” She’d call out only to bring her hands back up to her ears blocking out the noise that would be bouncing off the walls within her hospital room. 

Fact is she didn’t even remember how she ended up in the hospital with her eyes bandaged. The last thing Kimberly remember was confront Amanda and Harper at school in the science room about bullying Trini. She remembered her fellow ranger in tears once again pouring her heart out to her. The anguish in Trini’s voice as she told Kim about the rumors that Amanda and Harper spread about her fellow ranger begging to sleep with them and once again defacing Trini’s locker with derogatory terms. 

She also remembered the shouting match she had with Amanda and her underling as they slung harsh insults back and forth where Amanda would berate kim for the mistake she made in which Kim would retaliate that what she did didn’t give Amanda the right to attack her friends or deface other people’s lockers. 

The last thing came into Kim’s mind was how the fight escalated into a physical one where both Amanda and Harper violently shoved Kimberly into the lab table causing the chemicals on display to splash onto Kim’s face and into her eyes causing the searing and acidic pain to course it’s way into the pink ranger’s face. 

Even as Kimberly fell to the ground blindingly writhing in agony with the feeling of her face being on fire, she could still hear the two cheerleaders blaming each other. 

“Shit Amanda why did you do that?!” 

“What are you talking about you’re the one that pushed her!” 

“You did too amanda! Oh man. We’re in trouble now…”

“Harper listen! We’ll leave through the back ok? Nobody will see us.”

“But…we gotta help here she’s…she…”

“If we help her we’ll get expelled! Lets just get out the back before anyone sees us!…”

Before Kimberly would succumb to the lightheaded darkness and drift off into unconciousness the last thing she would hear before she woke up in the Angel Grove hospital would be the two footsteps of the people she used to call her friends leaving the school lab.

“stop…make it stop…” Kim whippered bringing her hands to her ears trying to block out the orderlies outside of her room. Random voices in a cacophony of muddled sounds just streaming into her ear drums. it felt like the insides of her ears were about to rupture. But even through the discord of the chaotic noises outside she was able to focus on one voice. 

Her voice. Even in her state and through the walls of her hospital room she managed to seek out the voice of her fellow power rangers. 

“Its my fault Jace. It’s all my fault.” Kim could easily pinpoint Trini’s muddled tear ridden voice. Her heart shattered at the sound of Trini’s broken voice. 

“Trini stop. You didn’t do anything. Wrong. This isn’t on you.”

“Jason, she fought with amanda because of me! Because I told her what Amanda said about me and what she did to my Locker. She’s blind because I…” The yellow ranger stopped mid sentence letting out a loud sob. 

Jason wrapped his strong arms around Trini’s tiny quivering fame and embraced the girl in a strong hug. Rocking her back and forth as the small ranger would sob into his chest. 

“Trini listen. This isn’t your fault.” Jason whispered into Trini’s ear.

“You know how stubborn and determined Kim is when it comes to protecting you. This isn’t your fault or anyone else but the person who did this to her ok?” 

——-

Blind? Did she hear Jason right? She was blind? The thought along scared the hell out of her. Knowing that she’d never see her parents, her friends or even Trini’s beautiful face again weighed heavily on her as she stumbled back onto her bed.

As the door opened Kimberly moved her head up towards the two people that entered the room. She easily recognized them as Jason and Trini since Jason’s foot steps were always heavier. And she always knew what Trini’s movements sounded like even before she was blind. 

“Hey Kim…” Jason was the first to speak. Sadness laced in his voice. Trini feeling guilt ridden as she is stayed quiet as she slunk back behind their team leader. Being unable to look her fellow pink ranger in the eyes was killing her. 

“You uh….you look good.” Jason’s voice quivered a little as he spoke. Kim knew he was lying. She could already hear his heartbeat change the second he spoke those words. 

“Come on Jace. You don’t have to lie. I probably look horrible. But the pain killers that they’re keeping me on feel nice at least.” 

Jason chuckled lightly at Kim’s joke. As stubborn as she was she always manages to lighten the mood in the group. Even after suffering a traumatic experience. 

“We were with your parents when they spoke to the doctor.” The taller boy just rubbed the back of his neck with his hand. His other free hand grasped Trini’s lightly while the yellow ranger just held on to Jason’s arm. 

“They’re still with them right now. But-”

“I Know Jace. I’m Blind.” Kim’s voice was somber. Jason just looked up at her, puzzled at her words. 

“What? But How did you.-” 

“I heard you guys outside. I can also hear my parents in the doctor’s office right now.” 

Jason just looked back down at Trini who began to silently cry. A small sniffle escaped from the shorter girl as she wiped her eyes with the back of her sleeve.

“Trini…” The pink ranger whispered. She hated the position that she put her friends in. She never intended to make things this messy. This was going to change things between them. Even worse the possibility of losing a ranger just added to her guilt. 

The Latina girl just ran up to her now blind friend and wrapped her arms tightly around Kim, sobbing into the hospital gown that the pink ranger was wearing. Whispering multiple apologies into her Chest. 

All Kimberly could do was stroke Trini’s back as the shorter girl poured her heart out. 

“Shhh. Don’t do this to yourself Trini. It’s not your fault.” Kim whispered trying her best to sooth the heart broken Yellow ranger. They were soon joined by Jason who just wrapped his two strong arms around his female team mates, enveloping them into a strong and protective hug. 

“Jace…” Kimberly could feel her own voice crack. The tears already starting to form behind the back of her throat. 

“We’ll get through this Kim. You’re not alone in this.” Jason whispered into Kim’s ears. Tears were already forming in the red ranger’s eyes. 

“I Know Jace. I Know.” 

But Kimberly wasn’t so sure.
