At last Frodo spoke with hesitation. ‘I believed that you were a friend before the letter came,’ he said, 'or at least I wished to. You have frightened me several times tonight, but never in the way the servants of the Enemy would, or so I imagine. I think one of his spies would - well, seem fairer and feel fouler, if you understand.’
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.
Trini dropped her bag next to her on the bleachers and sat
down with a huff, staring out at the students stretching their muscles before
they’d begin warmups. Her eyes automatically sought out Kim, who could be
spotted from a mile away in her bright pink tank top. Trini shook her head as she
remembered the conversation they’d had about the Pink Ranger joining the track
was actually less of a conversation and more of Kim just telling them all that
she was doing it no matter what.
“What about your powers?” Trini said. “You
can run circles around those track geeks and not even break a sweat.”
“I’ll hold back,” Kim replied. After
a moment of uneasy silence from her friends, she’d said, “Look, I’m not doing
cheerleading anymore and my parents are getting on my case about
extracurricular activities and how good they look on college applications and
all that shit. They’re basically forcing me to do this and track’s the only
team that’ll take me after that whole…naked picture fiasco.”
“I still don’t like it,” Jason
chimed in. “You could easily slip up.”
“Well how about Trini comes to
practice with me.”
“Excuse me?” Trini crossed her arms.
“That way one of you can keep an eye
out and let me know if I need to tone it down or not.”
“Why am I the one that gets
volunteered for this?” Trini asked.
“Because I’d much rather have you
there watching me than any of the boys. No offense, guys.”
“How do you know I don’t have other
things to do after school?”
Kim gave her a look. “Trin…you never do anything after school.” Deciding to
change her tactics, Kim changed her expression into a pout. “C’mon, it’ll just
be for, like, the next few months. When the year ends I’ll just tell my parents
I tried, but didn’t like it. That should get ‘em off my back.”
“I guess there’s really no harm in
it,” Zack said. “As long as it’s only for a couple months.”
Trini shook her head and sighed. “Fine.
I’ll go to your stupid practices and make sure you don’t fuck up.”
Kim grinned and pulled her in for a
bone-crushing hug as Trini tried to ignore the fluttering feeling that stirred
in her stomach.
So here she
was, five minutes into “Kimberly Watch” and was already bored out of her mind.
Trini stared at Kim as the other girl bent over and touched her toes, back
facing her. Inadvertently, Trini’s eyes strayed just below the waist and locked
onto Kim’s ass, clad in tiny running shorts that also made her legs look like
they went on for miles.
she didn’t notice that Kim had straightened up and turned her head to look over
at her sitting on the bleachers. When she finally realized that Kim was looking
at her, Trini’s eyes snapped to her face and took in the smirk that was firmly
totally caught her staring at her ass. But…did Kim…like it? Because her reaction certainly seemed that way. But then
again, maybe Kim was just one of those girls who knew she was hot and liked the
attention. But then again Trini knew for
a fact that she wasn’t one of those
girls. Sure, Kim knew she was good-looking, but she hated it when people stared
at her like she was a piece of meat. She was more than just looks, you know.
So why did
she seem to like catching Trini staring at her?
confused her. Sometimes it felt like Kim was flirting with her. She’d
constantly be touching her: an arm thrown around Trini’s shoulders, her head
laying in Trini’s lap. For fuck’s sake, they would even cuddle whenever they’d
sneak into one another’s rooms in the middle of the night. Did that mean Kim
actually might…like her or was she
just blowing everything out of proportion? It didn’t help that Trini had the
biggest crush on her, but wasn’t Kim straight?
watched as Kim laughed at something some tall, dark, and handsome guy said. She
laid down on the ground and he grabbed her foot, helping her to raise it up and
stretch it out. Trini felt the burning sting of jealousy and insecurity flare
up inside her. Crestfallen, she leaned back against the bench above her and
popped in her earbuds, turning the music up as loud as her eardrums could
she had to be wrong. There was no way a girl like Kimberly Hart would ever go
for a girl like Trini Gomez.
Tommy Oliver is said to be NATIVE AMERICAN in the original series. Do NOT use a white faceclaim for him!!!!!!! There are several actors out there of Native American descent, including B/oo/bo/o Ste/wart (a popular Tommy fancast) and Tyler Blackburn (who I use for my reboot Tommy). Plus, there are several helpers with lists that tell you an actor’s ethnicity and some even link to resources!
