One thing I’ve always loved about Power Rangers is the colour swapping AUs. Imagine,
Sweet and perfect Billy with the pink pterodactyl?! Jason with the sabretooth? All six foot of him packed into the cockpit of a silent predator? The tiny and fierce Trini with the bulky mastodon tank?! Kim, who’s swift and clever with the lively Triceratops? Zack the fearless mama’s boy leading the team with the tyrannosaurus rex? Colour swap au.
Or do we go further with this switch-a-roo and swap their backstories along with their colours? Trini - that weird outsider girl - whose not only being the black ranger but she’s caring about her sick mom, despite being so damn frustrated with herself because she cannot express who she is. Jason being at constant odds with his parents, as this weird blonde kid nobody knows, that occasionally speaks up to correct someone or offer odd sage advice? Zack, the former team captain and hotshot of the Angel Grove tigers who’s disappointed his mother over a stupid prank.
Plus badass black and blue girlfriends with alien war machines? I’m down. Sweet colourful boyfriends with these sleek machine animals? I’m down. Zack is double captain; ranger captain and ship captain for Trimberly and Bison. I’m down.
So down for a ranger colour swap au.
edit; there are so many possibilities with this au, so many possible combinations (red ranger kim, blue ranger trini, black ranger jason, yellow ranger billy, pink ranger zack as another example) go forth my friends, go forth and prosper!
