Pairing: Kimberly Hart/Tommy Oliver (and a whole lot of others)
Fic Title: Of Love and Bunnies
WIP?: Yes (Don't let that WIP fool you, this is completely worth it. This story's been going since 2005 and has over 100 chapters, so there's plenty to keep you satisfied.)
Why This Must Be Read: This story is a lot of things. It's a high school reunion story, it's a road trip story, it's a coming of age story, it's a romance--but mostly it's so funny you'll laugh yourself sick. Despite being a story about spandex-clad superheroes, very little of the plot involves world saving--and even that isn't so much world saving as hysterical chaos. There is really nothing the rangers seem capable of that doesn't in some way lead to trouble. Even a house party, which is its own brand of chaos for normal people, can't exist for them without turning into an alien invasion.
As far as the romance goes, I can honestly say I'm never unsatisfied. Getting Tommy and Kimberly back together (or just in the same room) is the driving force behind a lot of action. And when they finally get down to the big elephant in the room (namely, the Dear John letter) this fic handles it better than any other I've ever seen.
By the time they made it to the off-ramp, they were approaching ninety-five miles per hour and they were all becoming worried. "Tommy, man, the sign says thirty miles an hour on the ramp," Jason said, in his patented leader-talking-to-distraught-and-dangero
"LEAN TO THE RIGHT!" Jason roared.
"I don't want to die like this!" Ethan screamed.
"WHOO!" Conner yelled happily.
Kimberly shook her head, smirking. Did he really think this was an effective strategy?
I'm getting out of this car whether it kills us all or not! Tommy thought wildly, hunched over the steering wheel.
