This story is how the Forest Rangers were formed + came to be.
Luke, Katherine, Thomas, Jane + Mark were just 5 ordinary kids w/ special talents. Luke is a born-leader + a great stratigest, Katherine is a bit of a science geek + likes 2 build things, Thomas is a fighting + athletic jock, Jane is very creative + artistic + Mark is a peacemaker. All they knew about their families' past was that either their mothers or fathers died + left them a necklace. What they didn't know was that they were the 2nd generation of Forest Rangers. One day when they were in the forest at the same place, same time, they meet Ivy. Ivy is their mentor or in gardening terms, "care-taker". Just before they could learn anything, there is an attack. They go in their ranger forms + save a little girl. Luke finds a pin belonging to the girl after they get her home safely, a Mockingjay pin. They didn't know that they were going to see her again as the Rainbow Samurai Ranger. As they learn who they are, they find out that the attack was the beginning of a new evil. The Forest Rangers must stop this evil before it is too late to save the forest.
Where we are for the first story, its around chapters 52, 53 and 54. Basicilly, it's after Jase and Emmy come back from their honeymoon but before Emmy gets taken. Maybe mention about something about Mark and Susan or Emmy tells the Forest Rangers a vision about them and it happens. Maybe you can do one with Derek and about what he said in the last chapter along with his past with his father, learning about his family's secret plan for power. I would say anything so that the Forest Rangers have to fight one more Darkmite before Emmy gets taken.
Ok. Every Thursday (Except on special occasions), I go to the library with my sisters, Spaz32 and Bloom25, and we volunteer for our summer reading program from 12-3 our time (don't forget that we live near Chicago). I work with teens and adults upstairs with another person and they work downstairs with kids. Two per shift. What we do is log in people's minutes and give them their prizes. This is my sisters first year and my third year because you have to be 12 years old in order to start. This year is our library's 100th anniversary. After the program's over, their having a carnival to make this year special along with having a huge cake for the 4th of july parade.
But yeah, I wanted to let you know that I have 2 S.A. Rangers and 2 Forest Rangers to finish up. I decided that I'm going to create another Forest Ranger inorder for it to work for Mark's kids because I don't really like leaving anyone out of the problem. The only problem for finishing it-the ability. A list is helping me.
I've found time (finally) where I can post again. And the kids are at my job. I volunteer at a summer job and I have to take care of the kids. I play and make food and crafts with them. But it can be a lot of work, considering we have over 40 kids and only 2 teachers. I'll post my next chapter soon!
Chapter 30 Why, Visions, and Returns:
Jase looked at his wife in awe that she had transformed into a Forest Ranger.
?Emmy?? Jase asked.
She must not have heard him because she went after the Darkmite.
She struck the Darkmite with a blow from her knee.
?Forest Rangers, ready,? Luke said.
?Ready,? the others said.
?Unite with the power of the forest,? Luke added.
They morphed and went to help out Emmy.
Jase was about to morph and help but Ivy stopped him.
?Jase, this is between them and the Darkmites.?
Jase just stared at her as she was attacking the Darkmite.
?Why though,? Jase said looking up at her.
?She is important to the Forest Rangers because she is known as the Powerful One to them. Beyond this, it?s different and more complex, but you?ll find out eventually,? Ivy said.
He looked in their direction and he noticed something.
?Mom! Dad!? he exclaimed and was about to go when Ivy stopped him again.
?Where are they??
?I see them behind a headstone. Their close to where they are and I have to get them out of here,? he said, morphing and heading toward his parents.
?Mom, dad, come with me,? he said to them and they didn?t take no for an answer.
He got them out safely without either of them objecting or arguing.
?Thanks Jase,? his mom said.
As soon as they was out, he saw others that were in harm?s way so he had helped them get out as well.
Once he knew that everyone was all out, he went to Ivy and helped her get out as well because of her leg.
They both watched as they had defeated him in both normal and mega-mode.
When they had gotten back to them, Emmy explained it to Jase and told not to tell anyone else about it, even their own teammates.
They walked back to the hideout when Emmy, who was behind everyone, stopped and leaned against a tree.
She felt a small amount of pain coursing through her body. Her armband was down and the symbol had started to glow a little brighter, bright enough to see it through her shirt. Then she saw something else, a vision.
She saw her and Amanda in a clearing and she saw that she was in Amanda?s arms, pale and not breathing.
?I can?t die,? Emmy whispered.
Another clearing showed and it showed four armies and then she saw herself in the white suit.
Then she saw another time, later on in life. She was in a hospital bed with Jase next to her and she had something in her arms, a baby and she had the exact same symbol on her arm as she has.
Another flashed and she saw another team of rangers, this time different and she saw the red ranger, a girl, with the symbol on her arm as well.
?My own daughter will be the red ranger.?
She regained her sight. In her head, she heard a voice saw that he will take everything away from her. She got that out of her head and ran after the others once she was stable.
Out of where she was, Derek appeared. His scar on his face still noticeable.
?I have a feeling that you might be able to destroy me but you might be able to bring me back, this time I?ll take care of the problem and be back with my dear Ivy.?
19Coyote41, your turn. And when you mean by kids, you mean siblings or kids you baby-sit. Working on characters, try to post more previews and previews about the new characters.
I'm here, just had time enjoying my vacation and now I'm to work and the kids have left me so tired that I haven't had a really good creative thing. I'm lucky that I saved my other Forest Rangers story and I can just copy and paste that. But my shoulder has been hurting off and on and I'm going to not be on until Sunday when I get back from a karate camp. Could you do the next chapter please? Thanks.
Your welcome, I have a few family members on my mom's side that are in the military and my papa used to be in the navy. But I got to ask, where are you? I had my last two finals today and I'm done for the year. Your shoulder still bothering you. I once broke my wrist right into the growth plate when I slipped and fell forward on a thin layer of ice. That was maybe 4 years ago; I broke it in 5th grade and it was February.
But yeah, where are you?
1HPfan, I don't think you know how much that chapter meant to me, I am in a military family. I've had family that served in Vietnam and I think WWII. I'll post my chapter soon, but thank you for that. It really meant a lot.
This chapter is in honor of Memorial Day. Its tells us of all that we have, but there's sorrow for the loved ones that we lost but there will always be battles no matter where. I decided to do this after I preformed for the our Memorial Day parade and a ceremony at a cemetary afterwards. Our band played a piece in honor of a solider that went to my school and played trombone in band who had died early this year. He was in the Navy. I only sought that it was fitting.
Chapter 29 Memories:
Mark rushed back to the hideout, thinking about everything including Emmy being the Powerful One.
He came in and was bombarded with hugs.
?What happened to you?? Jane asked.
?Ivy told us you went for a walk. We were about to leave as soon as we heard it, but Ivy told us that and told us to no longer go because the threat was gone,? Luke said.
Mark looked down a little and whispered a word.
?What did you say?? Katherine asked, leaning in a little closer.
?I said ?Grace?,? Mark said. ?My last name means ?Grace? in Japanese.?
?And how did you find that out?? Thomas asked, tugging a little on his football jersey signaling that he was itching to play football or anything kind of school sport.
?A girl told me. Her name is Susan Love and she?s becoming a nurse,? Mark said blushing a little.
Thomas looked closer and said, ?You got a crush, dude!?
Mark held up the paper and showed the number.
?Love is very powerful and can be very special,? Ivy said, now wearing what looked like a metal cast.
Mark understood why she had it on and said, ?Just talking to her has made me realize that it is important to protect against the Darkmites, but yet it?s also important to help the younger kids and us with education. After hearing her say what she said has made me think of the future generations. I think that we should still do both, school and protecting. Besides, I can see from you Thomas that you are getting to the breaking point of not doing any normal sports.?
?It that obvious?? Thomas asked and everyone nodded knowing that Thomas really needed to do something.
It was later that same day, Mark stood by the statue and looked at the one of his father. With it now being 14 years after his father?s passing he felt like he barely knew the sound of his voice.
?Hey Mark,? and Mark turned around and saw the other four and their mentor.
?Why don?t we go for a walk?? Luke suggested.
They walked under the arch and Ivy pointed in the right direction.
Right beside a huge monument was a set of six graves, one for each parent they lost, even though Jane?s parents were together.
?It?s been a while since I last came here,? Katherine said as she picked up a dirty test tube she left when she was younger as an experiment.
?Your parents know that my mother was to train them so they said to me that if anything was to happen to them, they wanted to be close to her,? Ivy said adjusting something on her metal cast.
?Even though their deaths shouldn?t have happened, they had died fighting and for a noble cause,? Jane said as a tear started to shed from her eyes.
?Is that Emmy and Jase over there?? Mark asked.
?Yeah, it is,? Thomas said and the six walked over to them.
?Emmy, Jase,? Luke said and they turned around.
?Oh hi,? Jase said and laid down some flowers along with Emmy.
?Who are they??
?Family,? Emmy said. ?Sam Shiba and Nolan Johnson. Sam and Nolan were the second oldest and had served in Vietnam. They were the best of friends and had died right next to each other.?
?It makes us think about some of the things that we have because people like them had laid down their lives to give us that,? Jase added.
Emmy started to shed some tears too but wasn?t afraid to show it.
The eight turned around and there was the Darkmite that Mark had fought earlier.
?What do you want Darkmite??
?I?m here for her now that she?s here,? he said and pointed towards Emmy.
?You will not lay a finger on her!? Jase yelled and shielded her.
Emmy pushed him aside and she had a little resentment on her face.
?Jase, I?m sorry that I never told you,? Emmy said.
She pulled out a ring and pressed it in the face of her watch and once again became the Powerful One Forest Ranger.
19Coyote41, your turn. More previews to come.
Sorry, busy. Got 2 perform 4 graduation Saturday, march in a parade Monday + have finals the first week of June. But here's something of a trailer 4 the 3rd + final story:
(Darkness is coming + it wants to take control of our world.)
Nineteen years after defeating Xandred, they all have started families of their own + now are faced w/ another challenge; to stop a darkness from spreading.
All your favorite characters are back + ready 4 action. This time we see the ISO side of the story.
The past was all about the Samurai, now its time 4 the S.A. Rangers.
With new characters in store, it brings on a new team.
"You really think you can defeat us?"
"I know so."
In the final conclusion to the We the Rangers trilogy, it takes dedication to destroy a new + old enemy.
"Who are you?"
Written by 19Coyote41 + 1HPfan, We the Rangers: S.A. Samurai Kids.
Coming late 2013-late 2014.
Tell me what you think will happen + 4 any clarification. 1st 10 chapters + prologue done.
I like the character, I just thought she would become the red ranger because of her dad, but its fine. I can work around it. The only problem is that I need to change the age a little because I have the first ten chapters and prologue done and in the first chapter, it's Quorra's sweet sixteen. Other then that, its good.
Also, I've been meaning to tell you this, but the whole thing with my charter being so special is because ever since my fanfic wasn't all that popular and wasn't reposted, I've been wanting some attention. I thought I let you know.
Chapter 28 Susan Love
A few days later, everything was kinda returning to normal, except that the rangers were beginning to argue about simple things.
Mark always tried to find the peace between everything, and while he had been able to stop the fights, now he couldn?t find a mutual agreement between Luke?s wanting to focus on fighting the Darkmites and Katherine?s wanting to focus on helping the school out.
So, he went for a walk through the city, telling Ivy he was going so that she didn?t worry when she noticed he was gone.
?Why fight?? Mark mumbled to himself, kicking a rock as he walked past it. ?We?re a team. Fighting will only tear us apart for when the real battles show up.?
Looking down, he didn?t notice a girl walking in his direction, head cast down, also deep in thought.
They ran into each other and fell back.
?I?m so sorry!? the girl cried as she got to her knees. ?I didn?t mean it! I didn?t see you!?
?It?s ok,? Mark said quietly, getting to a knee. ?I should?ve looked at where I was going.? He looked at his scraped elbow.
?I hurt you!? the girl exclaimed. ?Here, let me see.?
?I?m fine,? Mark tried to say, but the girl was already dapping at his elbow with a tissue she got from her pocket. ?Really, I am. You don?t need to worry about me, please.?
The girl refused to let Mark be, saying that she was sorry she hurt him and that she would make it better.
Finally, Mark gave in. ?What?s your name?? he asked, seeing as she was going to stay, he might as well make friends.
?Susan, Susan Love,? the girl replied.
?I?m Mark Yubi,? Mark said.
?That?s Japanese: Yubi,? Susan said. ?I took a course of Japanese.?
?What does it mean?? Mark said, slightly amused with Susan?s interest in him.
?It means ?Grace?,? Susan said.
?It does,? Mark said. Now that his head with slightly cleared, he was able to look at Susan.
She had dark red hair that went to her shoulders, part of it tucked behind her right ear. She had bright green eyes and she wore scrubs like a medical profession.
?Are you a nurse?? Mark dared to ask.
?In training,? Susan replied. ?I was coming home from the hospital. My school, being a medical school, takes trips to the hospital for some hands-on experience.?
?Oh,? Mark said.
Susan glanced up at him from her work but suddenly fell back. ?What is that?!? she cried, pointing to a Darkmite.
Mark was on his feet immedieately, turning to the Darkmite. ?Following me?? he asked, throwing a kick at it and making it stumble back. ?Susan, get out of here!?
Susan got to her feet, but the Darkmite fired a laser at her.
?Forest Ranger, Ready!? Mark said, morphing and going in front of Susan, throwing the attack back. ?Don?t hurt her,? he growled.
?Mark?? Susan whispered. ?Is that you??
?I?ll explain later,? Mark said. ?Now get out of here! You?ll get hurt!?
Susan ran behind a fountain, but still watched the battle.
?I?ll teach you for sneaking up on me,? Mark said. He flipped back to avoid a laser and then returned fire with his own laser, making it back off. ?I need to contact the others.? He tried to call them, but they didn?t answer. ?If they?re still arguing when I get back, they?re going to hear it.?
The Darkmite summoned Dragotures around Mark.
?These guys?? Mark scoffed. ?Easy.? He defeated them all and turned to the Darkmite. ?You again.?
?Not yet,? the Darkmite said, disappearing.
?Coward!? Mark said as he took a few steps forward, but it was gone. Letting loose an annoyed sigh, he said, ?Power down.?
Susan, who had watched the whole thing, now hesitantly came out from her hiding spot.
Mark, hearing her, turned to Susan. ?I need to get back to the others,? he said.
?Here,? Susan said, giving Mark a piece of paper. ?It?s my number. I?ve gotta get home before my family worries. Call me.?
?I will,? Mark said.
Then the two went their separate ways.
1HPfan, your turn!
Name: Sabrina Shiba
Age: 16 (2 months younger than Quorra)
Child of: Jayden Shiba and Amanda Carter
Team: S.A. Rangers, Second-In-Command (If Quorra is hurt and out for any reason, Sabrina takes charge)
Color: Purple (Favorite color, always wears purple clothes)
Element: Storm (Combination of rain, lightning, wind, etc. Usual stuff you see during a thunderstorm)
Ability: Super hearing, senses danger
Appearance: Light brown hair, blue eyes, fair skin, wears a purple shirt with gold stripes, a dark shade of purple pants, purple shoes, sometimes a purple and gold scarf (given to her from Amanda on her thirteenth birthday) sometimes a purple jacket depending on the weather
Won?t be Seen Without: Purple star necklace (always on, given to her from Jayden on her sixteenth birthday), ring she picked out that was actually enchanted to let her control storm when not morphed (gold with purple stone, gold cage wrapped around stone, picked out herself, always wears it), sometimes a gold bracelet

Will use references to hockey while in battle. Feels better connection with Amanda, but still loves Jayden very much. Very smart and not afraid to speak her mind, both on and off the battlefield, which sometimes gets her into trouble.
I'm going to post both of my things over the weekend when I have more time. My shoulder is getting better and we adopted a stray kitten literally an hour ago, so I've gotta care for it. Just hold on until Saturday/Sunday.
Chapter 27 Altogether:
They looked at the Darkmite who was sneering at them.
?The Forest Rangers, what a pity bunch,? the Darkmite said.
?Be careful rangers, his name is X and he?s good,? Ivy said and then whispered, ?but I now a way.?
They all charged at him and had to go thru a bunch of Dragotures first to stop him.
As they made their way to X, they were stopped by a few small bombs.
?They just don?t call me X for nothing,? he said.
They dodged all the bombs they could find by using their senses. Eventually they got to X.
All six of them fought him, but he used some major attacks on them.
?Let?s see how you work now,? he said and healed himself.
?He can do that?? Jane asked.
?Yeah, but that?s if you allow him the chance to,? Ivy said.
She tried to get up but fell back to the ground. They all ran over to her and looked at her. ?I think I injured my leg,? she said.
?You did Ivy,? Katherine said.
They all looked at her.
?I?ve seen this a couple times. Simple biology,? she replied.
?You need six people to destroy him,? Ivy said, ?Now that he is stronger; you need six people to destroy him instead of one or five.?
?Who can we ask to help??
Out of nowhere, a figure fell from the tops of the trees and landed on the ground. As the figure stood up, they saw the emblem.
?Emmy,? the five said.
She pulled out a disk and placed it in her sword which gave her a cape, her shield and the winged helmet.
?I thought you were with Jase??
?I felt that something was wrong with you guys so I stole away to help you. Jase only knows that I went for a walk and then I used a portal I created. It?s still a work in progress but it knows to work for me.?
?Then let?s finish this guy off, shall we,? Luke said.
They turned around to face the Darkmite once again and this time they were able to defeat him.
?You take care of the bigger Darkmite, I?ll stay with Ivy,? Emmy said and they nodded.
She ran back to where Ivy was and started to create a temporary cast.
?Eventually you?ll have to tell them, about Derek.?
Ivy faces face went pale, no longer being in her suit to hide it.
?I know because, and you might not know this, but Mutt Vesper went inside my body the day before my birthday and while he was in my body, I was able to access his thoughts. So he?s your only love??
Ivy nodded and said, ?Yeah, he always understood me.?
?I will say this, but he regretted about not stopping this when he had the chance.?
They five came back and Emmy left.
Once they got back to the hideout, Ivy explained it.
?You may be wondering what has been with me lately and I need to tell you the truth. Mutt Vesper was Derek. Emmy told me about it told me that when he went inside her body . . . long story . . . she found out about him. Derek was my one true love and knowing that he will never come back has been upsetting me. I wish I had the chance to say goodbye,? Ivy said with a tear shed.
He looked inside and whispered, ?I?ll try to make this right and show that it will end.?
19Coyote41, your turn and want to tell you this. I will recreate the old characters and create the new ones for the next story, but I?m letting you create Sabrina since she will be the daughter of your character. Look back at some of my old posts for help.
Chapter 26 No ?I? in Team
Jane and Katherine were making dinner for the team. They were silent, aside from the questions to pass this and test that.
Finally, Katherine broke the silence by saying, ?I?m worried about Ivy.?
Jane paused in her cutting of a carrot and looked up at Katherine. ?What about her?? she asked.
?She?s always going off into the forest and coming back shaky and looking like she?s been crying,? Katherine said. ?Hasn?t anyone else noticed but me??
?I haven?t seen it,? Jane said. ?However,? she set down the knife and turned to the window, looking out, ?each morning, she hasn?t been acting like her normal self. She?s become much quieter.?
?Do you think the boys have noticed it?? Katherine said.
?Luke?s mentioned it to her once, but other than that, nothing,? Jane said.
The two continued to create dinner in silence.
After eating, they were worried when Ivy didn?t show up.
?I?m going to take her some food,? Katherine said as she picked up a bowl of the chicken stew they had made. She went to Ivy?s room and knocked on the door. ?Ivy?? she called. ?Ivy, I have some dinner.?
?Ivy?? Katherine said, risking to open the door and peer in.
?Ivy!? Katherine cried. She set the bowl down on the dresser and looked around, trying to find some clue to Ivy?s disappearance. ?Guys! Come quick!?
Luke appeared in the doorway, followed by Mark, Thomas, and Jane.
?Ivy?s gone,? Katherine said. ?I never saw her leave. Did you??
?I didn?t, and I was watching the door the whole time,? Mark said.
?Oh no, something bad must have happened to her,? Jane said. ?What are we going to do??
?We?ve got to find her,? Thomas said.
?In the middle of the night?? Luke said. ?We won?t be able to see the footprints, if they were left behind.?
?Then what are we supposed to do, Luke?!? Katherine demanded.
Mark looked at something on the ground and picked it up. ?Guys, I think she went to fight a Darkmite,? he said. He showed them a picture of a Darkmite with a red ?X? in the middle of it.
?We?ve got to help her!? Jane said. ?Remember the last time she fought??
?Where do we go?? Luke said.
Mark turned the paper over. ?Pier,? he said. ?Pier? There?s no pier around here.?
?No, there is one,? Thomas said. ?It?s near here. Come on! Follow me!?
Lately, Ivy was having some problems sleeping. She woke up from a nightmare of a Darkmite every night, and it?s always the same Darkmite. She knew where the Darkmite was, and wanted to settle this once and for all, before the Darkmite could eat her from the inside out.
Currently, she was winning her fight, and she was about to do the final strike when Dragotures surrounded her and attacked her suddenly.
She fell to a knee from the force of the attack. ?Maybe I should?ve thought this through first,? she whispered.
?Stop!? called a voice and Luke and the others came, taking down the Dragotures.
?Ivy, what were you thinking!?? Katherine said.
?Yea, we?re always a team!? Thomas said.
?We don?t let anyone go alone!? Mark added.
?You worried us so much!? Jane said.
?There?s no ?I? in team, Ivy!? Luke said. ?We stand together!?
Ivy got to her feet. ?Thanks, guys,? she said.
?Now, all together!? Luke said as they formed a line in front of the Darkmite.
1HPfan, your turn! I know I took awhile to make this, but I?m almost drowning in school work, college forms, and theatrical productions. Plus, trying to type this with a messed-up shoulder can be a bit painful. Sorry about the delay!
