I know that this story is about ten years old, but I didn't really actively seek out MMPR fanfic until recently. This was probably the first story I read and it touched me down to the very core.
MMPR was my world when I was a child for the brief period that I watched it. I instantly fell out of love with it due mostly to the fact that Kimberly had left and I didn't like Katherine. Even at that young age I knew that the way Tommy and Kimberly were ended by the show was a travesty, but what can you do when the actors want to move on and with a kids show to boot? I can't be angry about it, but that's what made me turn to fanfics.
Your story is probably the most raw and angsty of anything I have read but that is part of what makes it so amazing. You captured the sheer passion of their ages not to mention the range and depth of emotions you can feel when you love someone as deeply as we all know Tommy and Kimberly love each other. You put probably one of the best and most unique spins on a topic that has been done in so many different ways. I went back to catch up on the parts of Zeo and Turbo, as well as the Turbo movie to see where the series went how it fit into your story, and now I'm re-reading your story again with fresh eyes.
I know I'm rambling but seriously, there are no words for what your story touched in my soul. Thank you for giving us this beautiful story. I know it will be something I will come back to time and time again.

I love this story. I first read it off this site, and was so happy to find it here where I could book mark it and find it easily whenever I wanted to read it! This is my favorite Tommy/Kimberly fic, and I think it's one of the best ones out there. Well done!

Delicious, dripping angst, to be topped off with a happy ending. -

So I know this is like... eight years old :P
But seriously, this is great. Wonderfully thought out and executed, adult but not too dark, I love it. I wish there were more stories like this. Best take on the letter I've read!

... -smacks forehead-
I read this fic, like...three weeks ago, fell in love with it, thought I reviewed and favorited it, and moved on, trying to find other stories that matched it in epicness.
So, I was trying to find it again to re-read, because it was so great, and I couldn't find it! Turns out, being the bubble-head that I am, I forgot to review and favorite it. I think I spent around five minutes combing through my internet history to find it. Thank god I did!
So, well, I loved it. It was original, and lovely, and I loved how you integrated Lord Zedd's vile and rather creepy plot into the Turbo movie and television show. I love that Kimberly stayed evil and really proved herself of not being helpless and needing a savior.
I think the scene that sticks out for me the most, which is kind of ironic since I just said I loved that Kim didn't need her white knight. It's when the Power Rangers are carrying Kim into the hospital, and Tommy's trying to act all cool but he's panicking, and he doesn't want the paparazzi to know he has any connection to Kim...broke my heart a little.
Where's that scene...
He was the one who carried her - chest cushioning her head, heart throbbing beside her temple - as the Turbo Rangers made their shocking statement to the world. He'd chewed his lip beneath his helmet as he handed her to the doctors... trying his damnedest not to show the tension in his body, or give any other hint to the world of the simple fact that the Red Turbo Ranger, celebrated hero and leader of the Power Rangers, was merely human after all.
It's just so vivid. It left a wonderful picture in my head, and I'm so glad it did, because if it hadn't, I might not have seeked it out again.
I loved this story. Congrats, it was amazing.

Amazing! Your talent is off the charts. I read this more than five years ago and it ranks as one of my favorite stories to this day. I thank you for sharing you incredible abilities with us. If you ever get around to writing a Jason/Kim pairing let me know!

This is how you write a Kim/Tommy fic. Heck, this is how you write any fic and keep the readers interest. This is a very good story that I could not put down(internetwise anyway) until I finished. You kept the readers on edge and you managed to do it while being true to the characters. I also like you didn't make Kat into some horrible person during this. Far too many fics about Kim and Tommy do that. Good job, keep writing things like this. You do good work.

Absolutely amazing! I mean, just incredible! If had a 5 star rating system your story would be one of the few out of thousands that would deserve 6 stars! I started reading your story because I was bored, and just wanted to kill some time. I had no expectations of being absolutely entranced by your writing. Your writing... you made beloved characters even more... I need a good word- human, I guess. You were able to keep them in character while at the same time fleshing them out. You kept to a timeline so that the fanatics (such as myself) wouldn't feel cheated. You not only created a story, but made everything about it your own while staying true to the PR unvierse. I think I'm starting to repeat myself, but like I said 6 stars! I very rarely find a story that captures my attention so completely, and you seemed to do it flawlessly. While I didn't want it to end, I absolutely loved the ending.
I think I'm starting to sound like a stalker- don't worry, you won't need a restraining order. I just had to let you know that I am a fan of your writing. Thank you for the story.

Okay, it is now 4:36 a.m. EST. I think I started reading your fic at 11. It was SO worth it! You know how to hook your readers; you grabbed me and hauled me right through your Ranger-napping, Goldar-bashing, romance-restoring plot and I enjoyed every single minute.
Have to admit that I cried twice in the Epilogue; which means that you did an exceptionally good job with structuring the emotional level of the story, something that is very rare in any kind of book, much less fanfic these days. Many people like to do Kim/Tommy get-back-togethers, but yours was truly wonderful and unique. Plus, you've also given me some plot-bunnies for a fic that I've been meaning to write for a long time but can't because it's the third part of a trilogy and won't make sense until I /start/ the first story and /finish/ the second. (I know, how does that work, right?)
All the same, this was really fantabulous. And as it is now 4:41 and my parents can probably hear me typing on this keyboard, I shall say good night.

Very interesting story. In someways it would have been even more interesting of Zedd and Kim had gotten married but you could always do that via another story.

Um...wow! Seriously, you had so much angst going in here, I thought I was gonna have to read a fluff fic just to get through the rest of the day! Not that I'm complaining. Very dramatic. And a MUCH better take on the effects of Maligore than the movie took. Probably could have used more sap at the end, but that's just my personal preferences talking. I certainly have to applaud this exceptional piece of work.
