  • Kendall: Chase's late.
  • Shelby: How did this happen? I had Riley call him at 8 o'clock this morning and pretend it was 11.
  • Tyler: I printed up that fake schedule for him saying we were starting at 9 instead of noon.
  • Ivan: I set all his watches and clocks to say PM when it’s really AM.
  • Shelby: Oh, boy. We may have overdone it.
  • Chase: WHAT THE HELL TIME IS IT?!
  • Ivan: I mean, they were extremely common until just recently - historically recently, not recently like "metrosexual is a word now" recently, but recently.
  • Kendall: Are we still talking about anvils?
  • Ivan: Yes, where did all the anvils go?
  • Chase: You're talking about those big, heavy, metal things?
  • Ivan: That blacksmiths hammered horseshoes and stuff on. Everyone had them. They were everywhere in my time, so where did they all go?
  • Kendall: I don't know that they were that common.
  • Shelby: Wile E. Coyote used them. That's how common they were.
  • Ivan: Who?
  • Shelby: The cartoon. He was always trying to drop an anvil on the Road Runner's head or shoot it at him out of a giant slingshot or fire it at him out of a cannon. Inevitably, the cannon tilted up, shot it in the air, it fell down, and made an anvil-shaped impression on Wile E. Coyote's head.
  • Ivan: This is a cartoon?
  • Shelby: No, no, this just happened to me the other day. I was walking down the street, and this giant anvil - yes, Ivan, it's a cartoon.
  • Riley: I know she sounds nuts, but it's a very common cartoon.
  • Kendall: But that doesn't prove that anvils were so common.
  • Ivan: It does. It proves that anvils were so ubiquitous at one point - is that the word, ubiquitous?
  • Shelby: It depends on where you're going.
  • Ivan: That they knew that children would know what they were and delight in them. That's how common they were - children watching cartoons.
  • Shelby: That was the word!
  • Chase: I've forgotten your point.
  • Ivan: Where are all the anvils? I mean, is there some sort of secret anvil storage facility the oligarchy is keeping from us?
  • Kendall: Or they fell into disuse with the advent of other technologies, and so they melted them down and they're gone.
  • Ivan: But they're not supposed to melt. They were made to withstand the red-hot hammer of the town blacksmith.
  • Kendall: This is easily the most pointless conversation we've ever had.

Summary: Hogwarts AU. Riley is an adorable fifth year and everyone else is older then him. (That’s the plot, seriously, I told you guys I wrote this at 3 am)

Pairings: Chase/Riley, Tyler/Shelby, Hinted Koda/Kendall

Notes: I wrote this at 3 am and what even. But musicislife11961 danisprobablyonfire and thehistorynut19 said they wanted to read it, so *throws in faces*

This was meant to be platonic familial Riley-centric OT6, but Chase apparently doesn’t like to share. Do you disagree with my choice of house placement? Come talk to me here. I also made graphics that don’t look like complete shit: yaaaaaaaay! [Quotes on the graphics are taken from the first and fifth books’ Sorting Songs]

Since Koda woke up from that nightmare in episode 4, we’ve known that Koda’s experiences were traumatic. Also, given that Chase and Kendall were the only ones around before the series started, we could guess that they were the ones who revived Koda. But until this episode, we didn’t know anything for sure.

I never expected them to give us these flashbacks, but I’m thankful for them because they fill in these gaps.

Also, they tell us something about what Koda’s revival was like. I mean, this episode drove home just how traumatic Koda’s revival was for Koda, but look at Chase and Kendall’s expressions in these scenes. It’s clear that Chase and Kendall were impacted emotionally as well. I’m fascinated by that sidelong glance that Chase gives to Kendall just before he frees Koda. It’s a look that says “I’m terrified”, “are you sure this is going to work?” and “what are we doing?” all at the same time.

Given that this is a kid’s show, and that it’s Power Rangers, the fact that they handled the plot point of “character frozen in ice for thousands of years” with as much seriousness as it deserved is really quite commendable.

  • Chase: Kendall, did you call the doctor and schedule my appointment yet?
  • Kendall: Yeah, I did, but Chase, why do you still wanna go to a pediatrician?
  • Chase: 'Cause a regular doctor doesn’t give me candy at the end. Duh.
  • Kendall: I can’t keep doing this, I’m not your mom.
  • Chase: Well...
  • Phillip: You do exhibit rather...motherly behaviour, Kendall.
  • Chase: Yeah, I mean, my family's still in New Zealand. And Ivan and Koda's died centuries ago. So you’re like our mom. Team mom. *chanting* Team mom! Team mom! Team mom!
  • Kendall: I’m not the team mom!
  • Chase, Koda, Phillip: *chanting* Team mom! Team mom! Team mom!
  • Kendall: Phillip, why are YOU chanting?!
  • Phillip: It is a catchy chant.
  • Koda: ...Team mo-
  • Kendall: One more chant and no slushies after work!
