[[WMG: Authors, and Websites]]

''[[ Fanfic Shoppe]]'' by Kittie Verdana
* Recommended by {{Tropers/Wolfman2000}}
* ''Synopsis'': It is a gathering of many author's works in one location. It includes a little bit of everything from shipping to crossovers to anything in between.
* ''Comments'': Some of the stories on this website have already been recommended below, but are merely hosted elsewhere. Still, other gems are found here.

[[ Tsukino Akume]]
* Recommended by {{Tropers/jenicaaladima}}
* ''Comments'': She has wonderful stories, and her Bright Skies universe has the best working of canon and fanon that I've ever seen. She is a slash shipper, so those that are opposed to that, stay away.

[[ Guardian of Hope]]
* Recommended by {{Tropers/jenicaaladima}}, @/{{Mariko-chan}}
* ''Comments'': Focuses more on [[Series/PowerRangersRPM RPM]] and [[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Samurai]], but another masterful twisting of all canon to work together.
** Seconded. I love her Rainbow Brotherhood series that links MMPR to JF and speculates on what each individual color is.

[[ Ultimate Power Rangers]]
* Recommended by {{Tropers/LOMI}}
* ''Synopsis'': Take all of ''Power Rangers'', give it cohesion that goes beyond the original Zordon era, create several [[{{MythArc}} over-arcing storylines]], and then role in some Super Sentai to boot.
* ''Comments'': Basically an UltimateUniverse just like the title suggests. Most of the story follows the basic path of Power Rangers, but many of the Super Sentai story arcs and elements remain or are referenced, like the original Rangers getting their Power Coins from the Zyurangers before they even meet Zordon. It now has a sequel series ongoing, though the author's updates are infrequent due to having a life.
** Now with its own page [[FanFic/UltimatePowerRangers here]].

[[ PinkRangerV]]
* Recommended by jenicaaladima
* ''Synopsis'': A Ranger AU that deals with politics and the gray side of the Power Rangers.
* ''Comments'': The world she's built is ''beautiful''. And she had amazing characterization!
** The specific series begins with the twin stories [[ Sacrifice]] and [[ Unity]]. It continues in [[ Tommy Oliver, Power Ranger of Earth: Season I]] and currently has a [[ trailer for Season II]]. Currently on hiatus, but other, unrelated fanfics can be found either on or Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn under the same author name.

[[ AvalonBay]]
* Recommended by HallWings
* ''Comments'': She is a writer of OCs added to the PR universe but these OCs are far from Mary-Sue. Not only do they have a different, complicated, and unique backstory that makes even the reader wonder if the OC should be a ranger, but they do a great job of working her own fanon through PR canon. Her series comprising of the stories All To Blame, Made of Glass, These Walls, and New Beginning tell multiple story-arcs through multiple seasons. And that's only the Avalon series. There is also a Bailey series that has yet to be started.

[[ Sir Perfluous]]
* Recommended by EricW
* ''Comments'': This writer's work for Power Rangers generally revolves around 3 types of stories. First, short one shots/mini stories exploring the relationships of various rangers in their series. Second, romantic stories with the author's pairs in a season. However, by far his best work is his creating original series of power rangers with different themes. From dealing with fallen angels to Hawaiian spirits, to Celtic monsters, to space invaders, each of those series is packed with the spirit of the Ranger TV series, but with their own spins in order to give each "season" its own flavor. He's even dabbled in DarkFic territory.

''[[ Loss of Innocents]]'' by Joe Rovang
* Recommended by Speedbreaker, Kayube
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': After an encounter with a lone Putty, an unsettling revelation plagues Jason's mind, one he shares only with his closest friends. The once simple and obvious distinction between "good" and "evil" becomes blurred as they experience their last days as Rangers.
* ''Comments'': The episodes between when Jason, Trini and Zack's actors quit and when they were actually written out are regarded as a DorkAge at best, a JumpTheShark moment at worst. Yet the broad excuses to not focus on the Red, Yellow and Black Rangers outside of battle gives longtime fan Rovang the perfect window in which to address what really caused the team to quietly split in two before the old guard were PutOnABus. More than that, it is a genuinely haunting look at the implications of a series built on the exploded remains of countless [[MonsterOfTheWeek MOTWs]].
** This troper appreciated the justifications for all the odd edits and departures from the characters' established roles (particularly Jason's) that came about during this interregnum- in particular, Tommy once decides to wear one of his old green shirts to remind the others of the "old days", explaining the fact that he needed to wear green to fit with the StockFootage from an earlier episode. And during the fight against the Hatchasaurus, what was originally an editing oversight in which the original Megazord is briefly visible fighting in place of the Thunder Megazord is turned into a glimpse into Jason's mind as he remembers the last time they fought this monster. It all works.
** This troper thought the fic was a fun and worthy read despite the almost haiku-like inner monologue Jason occasionally had and other minor [[OutOfCharacter OOC]] things. The GoshDangItToHeck quality of the show really shines through in the dialogue and Jason's revelation about the Putty ([[spoiler:"It was drawing a bunny."]]) and his attempt at comforting a kid [[spoiler: dressed up as a '''''[[AnviLicious monster for Halloween]]''''']] are perfect examples of NarmCharm (and I mean that as a compliment). There's also something to be said for the existential horror of being trapped in an endless loop of WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld that the story touches on.

''[[ Perfectly Good Reasons]]'' by Dagmar Buse
* Recommended by @/DrThinker
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': How did the Power Rangers become friends before Zordon summon them to become Power Rangers? Let's just say, the Power Rangers would consider this an odd beginning to their own friends.
* ''Comments'': Let's just say the Power Rangers are mistaken for more serious gangsters members then Bulk and Skull by their junior high principal--anymore I'll be spoiling the story.

''[[ The Fifth Wheel]]'' by Silvormoon
* Recommended by Tropers/DaveTheAnalyzer
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A story of the Alien Rangers of Aquatar. The fifth wheel gets her chance in the spotlight... if she can survive it.
* ''Comments'': An excellent story that fleshes out Cestria and the Aquitian Rangers. Cestria's the focus but nearly every ranger gets to shine in the spotlight. What few character traits have been mentioned in the show are elaborated on beautifully and the purportedly [[WeaksauceWeakness weaksauce dehydration weakness]] actually becomes frightening from the viewpoint of one of the characters. All in all, a good read.

''[[ The Robbie Chronicles]]'' by BrownRangerKev
* Recommended by Captain Neckbeard
* Status: In Progress since 2011
* ''Synopsis'': The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers universe, re-tolled with a seventh, brown ranger. He’s crude, he makes snide remarks, and treats everything, including his job and his teammates with universal indifference.
* ''Comments'': An incredibly engaging coming of age story with a relatable lead, who although is in direct contrast with the rest of the seemingly perfect “goody goods” in terms of personality, bounces off of them perfectly to tell a believable tale. The story also accurately captures the personality of each of the main characters and expands on existing individual plots and archs and works to close plot holes in the story. The fic is written in script format to better capture the flow and the feel of the early 90’s TV show. A prequel, which includes re-writes of some of the show’s real episodes are currently being written, and begin here []

''[[ A Mirror of Dark Glass]]'' by SilvorMoon
* Recommended by {{Tropers/jyshin2}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Ecliptor meets someone who changes his life forever.
* ''Comments'': An excellent, moving story that focuses on how the familial relationship between Ecliptor and Karone/Astronema developed through the years.

[[ Power Rangers Hidden War]]
* Recommended by Zarius
* ''Synopsis'': A virtual season based around the premise of the Psycho Rangers being good guys protecting an alternate universe from the forces of evil.
* ''Comments'': A well written series that fleshes out not just the Psycho Rangers, but plays around a lot with PR continuity, to the point it really starts digging a deep hole for itself trying to reconcile the Psycho Rangers activities with their apperances in Lost Galaxy. Whilst a consistent row of episodes came out over the early 2000s, updates became less frequent, and eventually became a dead fic. A special came out later which attempted to tie up the loose ends, but it still has no real conclusion to speak of.

''[[ Forever Red: The Novel]]'' by Rob Seibert
* Recommended by: Jnman078
* ''Status'': Complete
* "Synopsis": A novelization of the 10th-anniversary episode "Forever Red".
* ''Comments'': An exceptionally well-written novelization with good characterization and that also heavily expands on the events depicted in "Forever Red".


[[folder: [[Series/Power Rangers Dino Thunder Dino Thunder ]]

''[[ DinoThunder: The Legend of Tommy Oliver]]'' by liron-aria
* Recommended by Tropers/BerserkerNW
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': PRDT rewrite. Moderate AU. Take a deeper look into the lives of Dr. Tommy Oliver and his fellow Rangers as they struggle to make it through the ups and downs of Rangerhood and the 2004-2005 schoolyear. Who said senior year would be easy?
* ''Comments'': A well-written story that delves deeper into the personal life and history of Tommy Oliver, as well adding depth to each of the characters. One aspect that was appealing was the connections made to minor characters introduced in earlier seasons. Each chapter is a good length. While it hasn't been updated in a few months (April 2011), there have been longer 'silent' periods between chapters.


[[folder: [[Series/Power Rangers SPD SPD ]]

''[[ Confinement - Mora's Story]]'' by Dark Shadow
* Recommended by {{Tropers/Burstkiller}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A one-shot fic based on Mora and the unanswered questions surrounding her character: Why was Mora so afraid of growing up? How did she and Gruumm cross paths?
* ''Comments'': A [[DarkFic very dark]] look into the past of one SPD's fan-favorite villains. Shows how a [[spoiler:broken home]] robbed the years from Mora and turned her into the LittleMissBadass/[[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]] we know her as.


[[folder: [[Series/Power Rangers Mystic Force PRMF ]]

''[[ Lineage]]'' by predilection
* Recommended by Wolfberries.
* ''Status:'' Complete
* ''Synopsis:'' Daggeron has a talk with Nick after the events of ''Heir Apparent''.
* ''Comments:'' A nice look into Nick's psyche after the he discovers that [[spoiler:he is the Light]]. A CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming if there ever was one.


[[folder: [[Series/Power Rangers Operation Overdrive Operation Overdrive ]]

''[[ Imitation of Life: Five Questions Mack Never Asked]]'' by cmar
* Recommended by: {{Tropers/TheOtakuNinja}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': PROO: When your whole existence turns out to be a lie, who can you go to for answers? Mack asks questions that we didn't see onscreen. 'Five Things That Never Happened' challenge.
* ''Comments'': Considering how they never gave us more information on the whole [[spoiler: Mack is an android]] thing, this is a nice look into his mindset during that time, and gives a much better explanation for the whole thing than the show ever did.

''[[ Operation Overdrive: Rangers In Retrograde.]]'' by Tropers/NekoLLX
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{random_fan}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Instead of just the four he calls in on the show Andrew Hartford calls in a couple of other rangers as well, Tommy Oliver and Justin Stewart. Leanbow also joins after sensing the crown's magic signature.
* ''Comments'': It can best be described as OO if there was no need to worry about source footage or budget. Is a great ForWantOfANail fic as the three new Rangers slowly yet surely change the story, yet it never strays too far from the original.


[[folder: [[Series/Power Rangers RPM RPM ]]

''[[ Operator Series Red]]'' by [=JDPhoenix=]
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{Burstkiller}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': In Corinth's early days, K considers Ranger candidates.
* ''Comments'': A nice, action-packed one-shot of when Scott met K.

''[[ Seven Steps From Humanity]]'' by [[ Dream-Edge]]
* Recommended by: Terrie
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': VENJIX's army wasn't just machines. We could have handled machines. No. Someone had given VENJIX magic.
* ''Pairings'': Dillon/Ziggy, Scott/Summer, Gem/Flynn/Gemma, K/Tenaya
* Tags: AU
* ''Comments'': This is one of those stories where you start out skeptical about the premise (a world of magical powers, instead of technology) and then you get into it. The characters are still recognizable as themselves but given a lot more depth.


[[folder: [[Franchise/Super Sentai Sentai Adaptions ]]

''[[ Power Rangers Take Flight]]'' by Joe Rovang
* Recommended by {{Tropers/AmadeusWindfall}}
* ''Status'':
** ''Season 1'': Complete
** ''Season 2'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': An 2-season adaption of ''[[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman Jetman]]''. AU. In 1992, an Air Force soldier and four apartment tenants receive on military hardware from [[{{Woolseyism}} Project Jetman]] and become the Power Rangers.
* ''Comments'': Excellent - better than some of the real Power Rangers series. Rovang makes excellent use of sentai footage, and all of the characters - except for those who aren't supposed to be - are very likable. It is in script format, but it's designed to be read rather than being in normal script format, and there are screenshots whenever sentai footage is used. Definitely worth reading. There is a second series, using the suits and Zord footage from [[Series/ChoujuuSentaiLiveman Liveman]], but it appears to have become a DeadFic after four episodes. Now has its own trope [[FanFic/PowerRangersTakeFlight page]]

''[[ Power Rangers RPM: Gamma Beta]]'' by [=AdrenalineRush1996=]
* Recommended by [=AdrenalineCola=]
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A sequel to ''[[Series/PowerRangersRPM RPM]]'' and adaptation of ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters'' and involves five Rangers becoming the Gamma Beta Rangers.
* ''Comments'': Definitely worth reading.


[[folder: Multiple ]]

''[[ Not Just Action Figures]]'' by Tweety Bird Alpha
* Recommended by: Applesauce21
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': (Author Synopsis) ''Every Power Ranger and evil villain ever has been turned into three-inch tall action figures and transported to a strange new world. Who is responsible for this and how will the many teams pull together to solve it? Mega-Crossover starring everyone!''
* ''Comments'': Starts off as a cool idea fic but quickly tangents into a creative (if weird) plot that is nowhere near where it started. Great characterizations and it really does start almost every Power Ranger character ever.

''[[ Ascendancy]]'' by StevenQ
* Recommended by: Godeskian
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The arrival of a magical gemstone in Reefside quickly sends thing spiraling out of control for the Dino Thunder Rangers, and that's before an Alternate Universe Kimberly arrives from a place where the Rangers lost the war against Lord Zedd all those years ago.
* ''Comments'': The author goes to great lengths to dig deep into the emotional side of the Rangers, and specifically of Conner, who is something of the butt monkey in the show, but gets a bit of a maturity upgrade. The Author turns out a hugely emotional story that has a couple of genuine twists to it.

''[[ Power Rangers: End of Days]]'' by project314
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{hellfire666}}
* ''Status'': Dormant.
* ''Synopsis'': In the year 2009, the death of a Ranger will bring all veteran Rangers together, from the MMPR era to the RPM era, for what could very well be their last adventure.
* ''Tags'': character deaths, gore

''[[ Black Water]]'' by ''AgentXero''
* Recommended by: Tropers/{{hellfire666}}
* ''Status'': Complete.
* ''Synopsis'': 19-year-old Madison Rocca has disappeared from Briarwood, but she's not the first in California. Old feelings will arise between two Rangers, while the police must find the murderer of the greatest Ranger of all time.
* ''Shippings'': Jen/Wes, Madison/Nick, Cole/Alyssa, Conner/Kira, Eric/Taylor
* ''Tags'': character deaths
* ''Comments'': There are a number of pairings but the romance is minor compared to the action and plot in the story.

''[[ Rainbow Academy]]
* Recommended by: Tropers/SparkyYoungUpstart
* ''Status'': Complete.
* ''Synopsis'': Thanks to Conner's ill made comment, Kira ends up headmistress of the newly created Rainbow Academy, the academy who will teach students how to be Power Rangers. With Conner at her side, her inner circle of staff behind her, and a horde of teachers and students to wrangle, Kira will try to pull the idea together and give the world the best Power Rangers they've ever seen.
* ''Tags'': mentions of sex with a minor
* ''Comments'': Not only does it dig into what it would take for a proper ranger-training academy, but it also explores the backgrounds of the Academy's first graduate rangers - the SPD A-Squad.

''[[ Power Rangers: Public Enemies]]'' by 100TenMillion
* Recommended by: TheHarmonizer
* ''Status'': Complete.
* ''Synopsis'': When the world needed heroes, they called upon the Power Rangers. But now, their home country needs scapegoats, not heroes. How will this affect the Rangers?
* ''Tags'': character deaths
* ''Comments'': A really interesting take on the Power Rangers. Put them in the same environment as ''''ComicBook/CivilWar'' and many things will vivaciously happen, including divided loyalties, deconstruction of most of the characters (including original characters), and increasingly low public opinion which leads to [[spoiler:a full-blown war with Megazords, the awakening of an ancient demon that terrorizes [[strike:the city of Briarwood]] THE ENTIRE WORLD, complete with [[KillEmAll every ranger dying]] to boot, and a]] serious take on the basic premise of Power Rangers itself.
** YMMV on this one as, like Civil War, some characters end up OOC for the needs of the premise (Rose in particular stands out, going from TheSmartGirl and a DeadpanSnarker to a VengefulWidow who intentionally targets a catatonic person for some MisplacedRetribution), there's an awful lot of rape and rape threats towards the female Rangers, the fridge logic of no other planets or organizations in this universe saved by the Power Rangers intervening, and a grimdark ending where [[spoiler:all of the Rangers killed by said ancient demon are tormented by the villains they fought for quite possibly the rest of eternity.]]

''[[ Of Love and Bunnies]]'' by Crazy Girl 47
* Recommended by {{Tropers/JekWindu2}}, The Otaku Ninja, Tropers/{{random_fan}}, {{Tropers/TheViolentTomboy}}, {{Tropers/SchizoTechnician}}, @/{{Mariko-chan}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Tommy/Kim is the centerpiece, with Jason/Trini, Adam/Tanya, and Trent/Kira in the background. In the more recent stories, [[spoiler:Kat and Conner.]]
* ''Synopsis'': Angel Grove decides to give Power Rangers Day another try. Tommy is dragged back to town by the newly-retired Dino Thunder Rangers, who want to meet his old team and relive his glory days. Kim also arrives to celebrate old times. HilarityEnsues.
* ''Comments'': While the quality of writing here is top notch, what really sells this is one is how absolutely hilarious it is. Over 100 chapters and counting, there's something to laugh at pretty much every other paragraph. The characters are well-realized and stand up remarkably well as the same people who fought Rita and Zedd +10 years. Quiet good, highly regarded.
** This troper really likes how the author intertwines the various seasons together, and also fills in a few plotholes/adds characterizations/explains a few things that the show never touched on. It's kinda long, but still really good.
** Absolutely brilliant. The entire thing is completely ridiculous yet not once do you find yourself thinking that anything going on is unrealistic. Recently, Rangers from most of the other seasons (at least those before [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Dino Thunder]]) have shown up and it's slowly building a plot. It helps that while being off the wall crazy the actual dramatic moments are written with the same skill that the comedic moments are.
** Anybody wanna make a page for this one? Definitely deserves one, but dunno how to start it.

''[[ Happiness Comes in a Manshirt]]'' by anolinde
* Recommended by {{Tropers/TheViolentTomboy}}
* ''Pairings'': Tommy/Kim
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Conner and Ethan get more than they bargained for when they go to Tommy's house to ask him to raise Conner's paper grade.
* ''Comments'': A cute one-shot with funny but spot-on characterizations. What else can I say? Though I do love DT stories that make references to Tommy's old teams.

''[[ Riley and Chase's Extraordinary Adventures in Relationship Building]]''

* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Riley ends up in another dimension where the rangers don't exist and he's dating Chase. Or does he?
* ''Pairings'': Chase/Riley
* ''Comments'': A very cute fic that gives an original way for Chase and Riley to get together, and the ensuing fallout is even more interesting. Warnings for anxiety attacks.
