In Afrikaans, these phrases are known as the “intensiewe form”. Directly translated these phrases mean “cucumber cool”, “poodle naked”, “chirp small” and “stick alone”. In Afrikaans they simply imply an extreme version of the word so “very cool”, “stark naked” “teeny tiny” and “totally alone”.
Power Rangers: The Saving Grace & The Leading Warrior (Jason Scott)
Prologue + O N E // Saturday Detention
As a child growing up, I didn’t have many friends. I was an outsider.
I don’t really socialize and I choose not to. I never had decided to be in society during elementary, junior high, and now in high school. My life actually began to become a mess when I hit high school. And it’s not in the way that you would think.
My grades didn’t get lower, they stayed the same. A’s and B’s. I still obeyed my parents’ rules. I meant that I was only crumbling inside.
But my story honestly couldn’t matter. Maybe not to anybody.
However, I dance through my pain. Don’t ask me how I morn through it all.
This is just who I am.
My name is Adelina Isabel Monet. And let me tell you, my life changes in a 1, 2, 3 to where I’m in an armor and fighting putties with 6 other strangers I met in Saturday detention.
And like life loves it, time will take something from me into something bigger. A one saving grace we’ll say.
* * *
“What’s going on with you?” My dad said after he parked the car.
“Everything was fine! And now you’re off doing some crap that I never thought you would do.”
I stayed silent.
“Speak!” He ordered. I let out a heavy breath and covered my face with my hands.
“I’m sorry. I’m just- I’m tired that’s all.” I looked to him as his eyebrows scrunched together. “So you being tired helped you make the decision of kicking a student in the face?” He said sternly.
“No I just-” My voice cracked.
“This was supposed to be the best year of your life. You had a scholarship, Adelina. I’ve had dance instructors and administrators come to your shows for that purpose. And you threw it all away in one day. You took all of your hard work and tried to rip it all to pieces. But you’re lucky that you didn’t lose it.” He said, “Yet now you have to spend every single Saturday here with a bunch of weirdos and criminals just so you can graduate! I wanted everything good in the world for you, Adelina. And now I just don’t know what to do since you never communicate and speak up. You never talk to me or your mother about anything. You’re such an outcast and you need some help!” He yelled.
I closed my eyes and pursed my lips, “Well I guess you didn’t know your daughter like you thought you did.” I quietly mumbled as I walked out of the car, and my dad did nothing but drive off. I could feel my tears streaming down and I jay-walked into the building. Clutching my bag, I tried getting myself together while walking through the long hall.
Walking into detention, I descended down the stairs as the loud annoying sound of teens filled my ears.
“Oh look! It’s Adelame!” Yelled a red head in my direction. I felt so many eyes on me and it felt super uncomfortable. I could see some familiar faces.
There was Zack Taylor. He’s rarely here in Angel Grove but I have him in calculus.
Tommy Oliver. This cool and chill dude who’s also dating Kimberly Hart, I’ve only ever talked to him once.
Trini Kwan. People say she’s a freak but I choose to not believe that.
Then there’s Kimberly Hart. Dance and cheer would be in the same gym practicing on their own side. We happen to be pretty mutual but only known with each other’s names. Not personally.
With Billy Cranston, he’s probably a genuine person. Yet I see that he’s brave, reminding the time where he knocked out the red head bully.
And then Jason Scott. Former head quarterback of the football team. He seems to have a lot on his plate that’s been a mess ever since the cow trouble I’ve heard about.
But like so, I don’t know him deeply. I kinda wish I did, not because I may have this attraction towards him, but basically that he just doesn’t know me.
I’m probably just a stranger to him.
Shaking my head, I ignored red head and sat in a desk. I took out my sketchbook from my bag and focused on a drawing of a dancer doing a ring leap that I’m currently working on.
There was a moment of silence for me, until I heard loud thump that caused everyone to turn and me to jump. “Hey there pretty babe.” I glared up at the red head as he leaned on your locker. I sighed and returned back to my drawing, “Please go away.”
“Aw come on babe, a pretty girl like you shouldn’t be afraid.” He winked and leaned close so that I could feel his breath on my face. I made an expression of disgust and backed away. I could easily take him, but people might ask questions about how a small girl like me took out the bully with one big punch or kick. I wasn’t going to get myself in trouble again.
“Just walk away and we’ll forget about everything. This isn’t necessary.” I said focusing on my drawing. “Come on sweet cheeks. You’re in the dance team. Maybe you should give me a secret dance lesson,” He smirked, “How about we get outta here-”
I cut him off and stood up from my seat, “Listen up punk Ed Sheeran. I may be some quiet chick who doesn’t normally stick up for herself, but if you think that trying to mess with an innocent girl is the coolest thing in the world right now, then you should really have a second check on your priorities. So how about you go run off and play with your other emo friends, yeah?” I gritted my teeth and gave him a straight glare with no expression.
All he did was smile and immediately grabbed my waist to pull me closer which emitted a gasp from my lips, “Not so fierce now are ya?” He started. I tried pushing him off me, “Get off of me!”
“What’s wrong baby?” He smirked, gripping my hips. “Don’t touch me!”
“Hey! Get off of her!” A familiar voice shouted and pushed him away. And to my left, it was Jason Scott. Red head quickly got up and looked at Jason annoyed.
“How old are you five?” The whole class began to laugh lightly. “This isn’t any of your business Scott,”
“Yeah? What she does isn’t any of yours.” Jason retorted. I was really shocked at how THE Jason Scott is standing up for me.
“Now, unless you don’t want me to bitch slap you again like last time, I know I’m gonna be here everyday for what seems like the rest of my life and I’m sure that you are too, so let’s make a deal.” Jason walked closer to him, “Don’t sit near me or her,” He looked at me, “And we’ll be okay.” He said facing back at him.
And with that, Jason walked off taking a seat across from mine giving me a small wink as I sat back down. I looked over at Jason and before I didn’t knew, his head turned over at me. We had this full eye competition until I looked away, sinking into my seat a little as I felt my cheeks heating up. I can’t believe he made me blush. I peeked a look at Jason who looked away and smirked. And in just the nick of time, the teacher walked into the room.

GUYSSSSS! Here it is!! The prologue AND the first chapter of my new Jason Scott fanfiction!! So you practically get a bonus. Plus, I changed the book title because I felt like The Saving Grace & The Leading Warrior sounded like it fit the plot and not A Hero’s Inamorato.
But I hope you guys enjoyed this! It’s short but I’ll try to make the second chapter longer!! Please like and reblog this! Thanks!
I am sick of the dirty looks for being on drumline.
I should not be called a slut when I choose to wear my drumline hoodie. It’s my body, I earned my hoodie!
I should have never been questioned multiple times in middle school for carrying my drumsticks in the hall to the band room,when a friend next to me was carrying his and didn’t get questioned for carrying a “weapon.”
“Like a girl” should not be used as an insult for my musical talents.
I shouldn’t have to deal with the bullshit of people telling me that I will never be able to march drum corps because I have boobs!
I am tired of people doubting my abilities because of my gender.
I should not have people looking down on me in the lot at a competition.
“Oh you will never get a boyfriend since you are on drumline. Boys like quiet,reserved,ladylike girls. All you do is hit shit and hangout with guys!” Excuse me, is this the 1900s? I’ll hangout with who I want whether that be guys or girls. I’ll hit shit with the support of my boyfriend for your information.
I should not be questioned when going to get my varsity jacket that I’m a girl on drumline by a grown woman.
Being a girl who is a percussionist should not define me in a negative way.
I need feminism because all I want is to be treated as an equal…not just a girl.

I’m going to go over this bit by bit because this whole thing is just an absolute mess.
Firstly, “Warning”? Really? Who are you, my mother? This is so ridiculous. What gives you any idea that you have power over me, over Beth, over this blog, or over this person that you apparently aren’t a fan of. Really? Really?? Reeeeally??? C’mon. You’re nobody big, you have no authority, and you obviously don’t have a single clue who you’re even talking to.
First line. If you’re going to call this chick a talent-less hack she’d better have not taken color theory or anatomy as well, that’s all I’m going to say. You’re telling me that somebody out there has no right to criticize the web’s equivalent of Rob Liefeld, I’m going to have to call bullshit on that. Unless this chick is drawing stick figures in neons, I think she’s fine.
Second line. Is that a threat? It’s cute, but it’s illegal. Maybe Viv’s lawyer-mom can tell you all about that. Again, you’re mistaken, so I don’t know what you’re going to do to me or Beth because you don’t have anything on either of us? Like, if you were to go ahead with your threat and make whatever “look like a slap on the wrist” in comparison, I still don’t get how that affects us? It would be shitty to go attack somebody else because of us, but can’t know where you’d even begin?
Third line. Jokes on you I’m not an artist by profession. And Beth pays rent with her art, so, good luck there. Or is this directed at your not-so-buddy? Does putting other people down make you feel better about yourself, kiddo?
Fourth line. Two people run this blog, Nick left. Sorry to disappoint.
Fifth line. Except no? No, you don’t know who I am, because you’re way off the mark? Like, I don’t even have that letter in my name, let alone is it an initial, let alone is the entire thing mine? Again, good try.
Sixth line. Another threat? Seriously, talk to Vivi’s mom about those. It’s way worse than anything a public critique blog could ever get. And I have never emailed, tweeted, or reached out to Viv in any way, this blog has maybe tagged her twice in its entire existence and that was before we knew she was blocked, and we never ask anybody to message her on our behalf, we’re as cool as cucumbers so please kindly take a hint and calm down. If you go into google and type in “rage management counselor” it might help.
Seventh and eighth line. Wow, this is really some middle school kind of drama that I’d honestly love to get into one day but I simply do not have the time. Is this really all about who didn’t get invited to whose parties and what Julianne said about Susan? That’s really cute.
Last line. Most of my friends don’t have tumblrs, but if you figure out who I really am, you’re welcome to tell them that I stole one of their staplers and never gave it back. And that I keep stealing lunches from another, but she’s aware I’m sure. And I stole Beth’s razor but don’t tell her, she’s the only one you can’t tell.
On a serious note, again, I don’t know who you’re going to go talk to, but if you’re so unstable as to take out your rage on the wrong person then I feel bad for them? I can’t really do anything? Sorry. That’s a pretty pathetically low blow, though, I gotta say. Why didn’t you just message your not-so-friend? Or maybe, I don’t know, try to have a civil conversation about it with her? Maybe she could’ve told you that you’re wrong before you sent a message to a blog making a total ass of yourself in full view of our audience?
It was five minutes into the third quarter and you were absolutely pumped. Four of the 12 goals for the team had been scored by you and Coach had kept you in for most of the game. You could care less though. The adrenaline was keeping you from feeling tired.
“Y/L/N, watch the pick!” Scott yelled from his position in the goal. Since he was the goalie and had the best view of the field, Coach encouraged him to help out his teammates.
“Lahey! Head’s up!” Scott yelled again.
Isaac caught the ball and flung it at you. You looked up, trying to position your stick to catch it. It came closer, closer, closer …
“Y/L/N, double pick!” Scott yelled moments before your smashed between two offensive players. You go down with a thud, landing hard on your back and groaning with pain as you roll over. Through the pain, you hear Coach Finstock calling for a timeout and then Isaac as he rushes to you.
“Y/N, Y/N!” he says, panic in his voice as he reaches you. With his hands in either side of your face, he leans in so close your helmets are almost touching and you can see the panic in his eyes.
“I’m fine,” you gasp as you sit up. Coach Finstock stands a few feet away, staring worriedly at you.
“Can you make it to the bench? Coach asks, coming closer. You nod and with Isaac’s help, you stand up and make your way to the bench.
“Lahey, back on the field, ” Coach barks once you’re situated on the bench with an ice pack pressed between your back and the water cooler.
For the next 20 minutes, you watch as the players on the field catch, throw, and run the ball. With five minutes left on the clock, the score was tied. Coach calls a timeout.
“Doing good,” he compliments the huddle. “Keep scoring.” He makes eye contact with you, and then moves on.
After giving another short pep talk, he chooses players to go in and then comes to sit by you on the bench.
“Can I go in? There’s only five minutes left and my back is feeling fine,” you beg.
He scrutinizes your face before replying. “Make it worthwhile, Y/L/N,” he says. He makes a move to slap your back before deciding otherwise and calling Greenberg back to the bench.
Stretching your back quickly, you take your stick and pull the helmet onto your head. You join Isaac by the center circle, ignoring the sneers on the faces of the opposing defenders.
The play starts and Liam takes the ball, sending it in Isaac’s direction. Isaac catches it with ease and runs it up the left sideline, you mimicking his moves on the opposite sideline.
“Y/N,” he calls as he sends the ball in your direction. You catch it, dodging a player as you near the goal. Taking a deep breath, you pull arms back before pushing quickly and hurling the ball into the net, putting all your force behind it.
In one fluid motion, it whips into the net.
Later that night, after the game when you’re leaving with Isaac, two players from the opposing team walk up. “Good game,” they say to Isaac before looking at you. “You too. You played better than any guy out there.”
You smile. “I guess you never underestimate a chick with a stick.”

So NI gymnast Jack Neill has released a new app to follow up ‘stickman highbar’ and its called ‘stick chick’ and its very similar to the 1st app but its on uneven bars now and you can do counter rotating skills like tkachevs or shaposh type movements.

We tend to see a lot of the same books around the YA community so we thought about doing a list of some of our favorite underrated books. These are the ones that we’d love to see more edits, gifsets, fanmix, discussions being brought here on tumblr and other social medias. Take a look at the summaries and find which one fits more what you like to read about, they may surprise you with an amazing story!
He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost.
He’s part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable.
Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present.
Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the most elemental of truths—that choosing to live can mean so much more than not dying.”
“Harper has a secret…and it’s not that she likes girls. She has a rare and special gift: she can see how old other people will be when they pass away. Nothing she does changes this number, and that becomes especially clear when her mother dies in a car crash. With only one other person in the world who knows about and shares her gift, Harper is determined to keep her distance from everyone. Then she falls for Chloe… whose number is 16.
That means that Chloe doesn’t have twelve months to live. She doesn’t even have six. She is going to be dead by the end of the summer, unless Harper can find a way to stop it.”
“Ten years ago, God gave Braden a sign, a promise that his family wouldn’t fall apart the way he feared.
But Braden got it wrong: his older brother, Trey, has been estranged from the family for almost as long, and his father, the only parent Braden has ever known, has been accused of murder. The arrest of Braden’s father, a well-known Christian radio host, has sparked national media attention. His fate lies in his son’s hands; Braden is the key witness in the upcoming trial.
Braden has always measured himself through baseball. He is the star pitcher in his small town of Ornette, and his ninety-four-mile-per-hour pitch al- ready has minor league scouts buzzing in his junior year. Now the rules of the sport that has always been Braden’s saving grace are blurred in ways he never realized, and the prospect of playing against Alex Reyes, the nephew of the police officer his father is accused of killing, is haunting his every pitch.
Braden faces an impossible choice, one that will define him for the rest of his life, in this brutally honest debut novel about family, faith, and the ultimate test of conviction.
“All London Noble wanted out of her senior year of high school was anonymity. The complete opposite of Jasmine, her emotionally unstable baby sister, London has worked hard to stay out of the spotlight.
Then she discovers that Wade, one of the most popular guys in school, is gay like her and their new-found closeness based around their shared secret has half the student body convinced they’re hooking up…and a lot of girls aren’t happy about it. Now she’s been dubbed “Dirty London.” Rumors are flying about her inability to keep her clothes on, and London is pretty sure she’s developing a crush on the one girl who sees through it all.
If she could admit why stealing boyfriends is the last thing on her mind—not to mention find out what’s going on with Jasmine and her rapidly disappearing psych medications—her life would be a much brighter place. But if her and Wade’s truth gets out, and if she doesn’t find a way to help her sister, London faces losing a lot more than her obscurity.”
“Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can’t turn off.
Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn’t help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she’d be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam’s weekly visits to her psychiatrist.
Caroline introduces Sam to Poet’s Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more “normal” than she ever has as part of the popular crowd … until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.”
