Author has written 6 stories for Power Rangers.
My name is Sean. I enjoy a variety of show genres. I grew up when PR and VR Troopers came out in the States.
Pet peeves: Stories that belittle Kat. There are many stories of that nature on Fanfiction and similar sites, especially when it comes to Kat and the infamous Dear John letter, which Kim wrote. Kat bashing is almost as bad as all those slash fics.
Other examples of bad grammar include, but are certain not limited to: the misuse of to, two, and too, it's and its, there, they're, and their, and your and you're. An example of this phenomenon is, "You're potential is endless," rather than, "Your potential is endless." It is really not that difficult to learn the differences, and use the proper terms.
-Stories that have significantly younger Rangers with older ones. I will never write about such pairings, no exceptions. Examples: Adam/Kira, Tommy/Kira (this being the most notorious pairing of a significantly older Ranger with younger one,) Jason/Kira, and worst yet, Daggeron/Maddie. These guys are at least 10 years older than the younger Rangers, and stories having them as pairs are, quite frankly, disturbing. I know that Tommy is said to be in his mid twenties in Dino Thunder, but it SIMPLY IS NOT POSSIBLE. Suspension of disbelief only goes so far; the Zords, Morphing Grid, and other such things are OK, because you already know it's not possible. The writers make no attempts to say it's even likely. But they expect us to believe that Tommy, who has never skipped grades and graduated in the late 90's, magically has a PhD by 2004, and he's only in his mid twenties? No. I do not support these pairings, or similar ones. Especially when someone is at least 20 years older (*cough* Daggeron *cough*) than the younger Ranger.
-Jason/Kim pairings- *Please note this strictly refers to those fics where Jason was the reason behind Tommy and Kim breaking up, or when Jason pursues Kim not long after they broke up. It does not refer to fics where Tommy had time to heal from the pain, and *eventually* Jason and Kim get together.* Out of all the fics putting them together, perhaps 3% tops actually addresses the elephant in the room, which is the sheer cowardice Kimberly displayed when she broke up with Tommy, aka The Letter. There's also the fact that Jason is/was supposed to Tommy's best friend, his brother in all ways but blood. Hooking up with Kim, knowing fully well the ramifications of The Letter, is the ultimate form of betrayal. Some fics actually explain The Letter and at least try to make things better. But they seem to be the exceptions to the rule. Don't expect to ever see pairings like the listed ones here.
Favorite PR series: MMPR, Zeo, PRIS, Time Force, Mystic Force, Lost Galaxy, and Dino Thunder.
Disliked characters in X-Men: Logan/Wolverine- This complete waste of flesh couldn't even be considered remotely Human. It was nothing more than a drunken, mindless, rutting, rabid animal that should've been put down long ago. All instinct, and next to no intellect to speak of. It targeted anything in a skirt, and didn't care who it hurt. Except for when it gets to one up those it didn't like in the process, of course. It was a mindless monster that finally got what it had coming to it. Good riddance to one of the biggest monsters in comics history.
Pet peeves for X-Men: Comics/stories that bash Cyclops, something that is quite prevalent these days, both in comics and on this site. Examples include him cheating on Jean, or leaving her with no warning. Same goes for any woman he's with. That's something that one would expect Wolverine to do; it was, after all, the lowest common denominator. It's not something that one would attribute to Scott. I attribute such stories to bad comics writing and/or writers in general who simply want to try to create drama. Yes, that does extend to this site, where Cyclops appears to be a favorite punching bag of certain writers.
