An: Done in response to the Ars Amatoria's Ranger Romance Themes Challenge. Yes, I know these two weren't a Canon Couple, but I liked them way too much to pass this up. The first 20 stories are set during Dino Thunder, the second 20 are after and will be mostly AU (I'm not gonna touch on the DT/SPD team up at all).


Duty. I've never really thought about that word until recently. It's never applied to me, because I've always just sailed along in life, having nothing to worry about other than myself and my wants and desires. That's changed now. And surprisingly, I'm comfortable acknowledging it.

I have a duty.

You see, I'm a Power Ranger now, or to be precise, I'm the Dino Thunder Red Ranger. And because of that, I just gave up what most would consider the chance of a lifetime – fulfilling my dream of playing professional soccer. Of course, after saving a little girl, the full weight of the legacy placed on my shoulders made playing soccer seem like nothing. I mean, weight it out – playing soccer or saving the world. Deep beneath the jock everyone else sees, I've hidden the part of me who wants to do something more with my life.

And thanks to Dr. Oliver, I have the chance to do something more. Besides, I'm not in this alone. I've got two teammates, Kira and Ethan, and Dr. Oliver to help me shoulder the responsibility and burden.

I know a lot of people complain about having duties to different things in their lives, but I can't help but think this is going to make me a better person for taking it on.
