Tony walked out of the jungle, carrying a sleeping Cole. The clearing was full of wooden houses on stilts, and a few small cooking fires smoldered around the place. Tony looked from Cole to the silent village. A baby was crying somewhere inside; that probably meant someone would be up soon.
"Don't want to upset the timeline too much," Tony whispered to Cole. "You're supposed to go here. Why am I talking to you?" He shrugged, crept right to the edge of the houses, and set Cole down by a bush as gently as he could. The baby woke up and started crying, and Tony nearly shushed him before remembering that would bring someone coming faster.
He pulled the red animal crystal out of his pocket, along with the photo, and a stub of pencil he'd retrieved earlier. Any writing would be completely worn off in twenty years, no problem there. "His name is Cole Evans," Tony wrote on the back of the photo, and tucked it and the crystal into Cole's blanket. The baby was really starting to get upset, and Tony heard footsteps in one of the nearby houses.
"Well, good luck," he whispered, and ducked back into the woods. He heard a shout from behind him, and plunged onwards. Prickers and creepers clung to his muddy uniform, but Tony pressed on through. He was back in the clearing in moments.
The others were gathered around Fischer, who was fiddling with the newly-built, salvaged Kronos Cube. It was much less colorful than the original—though the red duct tape lent it a certain rakish air.
"Mission successful," Tony whispered to the others, coming in between James and Kaiden.
Fischer held out the Kronos Cube, and all of the guys put their hands on it. The screens lit up, though a few flickered.
"You're sure this will work?" Tony asked. The metal plates under his hand didn't quite meet up at the corners.
"Yes, stop asking," James said, and Fischer pressed the button.
The guys materialized in the Demi-Zord Bay with a crack, all thrown back by the force of the trip. There was a startled shriek, and Tony sat up to see Rachel running towards them. Wincing, he clambered to his feet, and then saw the three strange Demi-Zords parked near the doors.
"Who…?" He began, pointing, as a pair of uniformed men climbed out. They went to the largest, and the unmorphed Green Monster Ranger dropped out, followed by a very tall soldier with a limp body slung over his shoulders. Tony guessed by the black jumpsuit that it was another Monster Ranger.
By now everyone else was back up, and recounting their stories. Rachel zipped away at superspeed, shouting something about Elandra's tears. Kaiden sat down, gasping a little as he moved his injured knee. Without a word, James and Fischer walked out, probably heading for the command center. Rex went to the soldiers, and Tony followed him.
The large man gently set the unconscious Monster Ranger on the floor, and his green teammate quietly bent down to check on him. The most decorated soldier, a balding man in an olive green uniform, turned to the oncoming Rangers and snapped a crisp salute.
"Oberst Wolfgang Harper, Eurofighter Spitfire 2 Demi-Zord pilot," he announced. "We responded to a distress signal issued by Stellar Pink, but I see the crisis may be over." Rex cracked a grin, even though Tony could see his shoulder was still paining him.
"I think so. You can all return to base—if we need you again, we'll call." Harper nodded, and turned to the other two, and repeated the order. They also saluted, standing, and the bespectacled man passed the unresisting Green Monster Ranger to Tony by the elbow. The biggest man picked the injured Monster Ranger up again.
"Where should I put him?" He asked, with a thick Russian accent.
"Follow me," Rex said. He led the others out of the Demi-Zord Bay, Tony helping Kaiden. They went up to the Rec Room, and only then did Tony remember the manacles Elandra had left attached to the walls after his and Rex's fight. Rachel rejoined them as the Russian left.
"Elandra saved her tears, remember?" She said, uncorking a tiny vial of what looked like water and wetting a wad of gauze. She went to the Monster Ranger first, and pulling open one of the rips in the back of his jumpsuit, pressed the gauze to a still-bleeding wound. He shuddered, but when Rachel took the gauze away and checked the other injuries, they were healed over.
"We need to hurry," Rachel said, darting to Kaiden. "The Black Monster Ranger saved me, but the others took him away, and I don't think Marco's going to be very merciful."
"What?" The Green Monster Ranger interrupted, wide-eyed. She sprang to her feet, the chain jingling. "He couldn't—"
"Really?" Rex asked, folding his arms and looking hard at the Monster Ranger. She bit her lip.
"He will. You don't have time to decide if you can trust me, just go, please," she said quickly. Rex punched the wall comm.
"James, you, Tony and I head out to the Hexagram now, using Hyper Mode," he ordered. "The rest'll join you as soon as we're all fit."
"Roger," James said.
"Got it," Tony added, standing up. At that moment, the Blue Monster Ranger catapulted upright and let out an inhuman screech. Startled, Rachel dropped the vial of tears, but Kaiden caught it and very little spilled.
"No, no, no! You're dead!" The Blue Ranger screamed, clamping his hands over his ears. The Green Monster Ranger dragged her chain to its full length.
"What's happening?" Kaiden asked.
"He's got a telepathic connection to the Weeping Angels, he can sense them—but we thought they were all gone!" The Monster Ranger stammered.
"So did we," Kaiden said. "You guys go—Rachel and I will take care of the Angels."
The Blue Ranger's eyes snapped open. "Angel," he gasped. "Just one. There," he pointed to one of the doors with a shaking hand. Tony and Rex darted into the elevator, and Rachel and Kaiden raised their fists.
"Medieval Planets, descend!" They shouted, with Rex and Tony following suit in the lift.
James was in the Typhoon Zord's cockpit already, morphed, as the other two dashed in. Rex quickly shouted about the Weeping Angel as they reached their Demi-Zords.
"Looky what I found," he said, and held something up between his forefinger and thumb. Tony couldn't see it from so far away, but Rex froze halfway into the Bolt Zord's cockpit.
"They left Marco's Power Ring?" The Red Ranger said incredulously. Now Tony saw it, small and gleaming darkly in the Blue Ranger's hand. James tossed it in the air, caught it and pushed it over a lever on his Zord controls.
"It was on the floor. I guess Monster Red dropped it on his way out." His hatch slid closed, Tony's and Rex's following a moment later, as Fischer opened the outer doors. The three Demi-Zords flew out into space, and paused.
"Ready?" Rex asked.
"I've been ready for ages," James said. "Hyper Mode!"
Tony threw the levers, and heard the fusion reactors powering the Lagrange Zord fire up. He could see the golden glow cover his hull, and cracked his knuckles. One light touch of the controls, and the Zord swooped down to Earth, the g-forces slamming his head into the back of his seat. Tony whooped gleefully, as he and the other two closed in on California.
"I can hold him still, but not long," the Blue Monster Ranger gasped. He was kneeling hunched over against the wall. The Green Ranger looked on, glancing from Ranger to Ranger to the door the Angel lurked behind.
Rachel and Kaiden drew their Power Weapons, as the lights began to flicker. Kaiden hit the door button, and it slid back to reveal a dark room. The Rangers' helmet lights caught the Angel's stone robe and raised wings. It stood facing the door, one arm outstretched and face human-looking.
"Ready?" Kaiden asked, hefting his Power Axe.
"I guess," Rachel said. They turned off their helmet lights with simultaneous clicks. The only sound was Monster Blue's ragged breathing behind them.
"Geronimo!" Kaiden shouted, swinging his Power Axe and leaping into the room. There was a metallic clang, and Kaiden hit the wall with a burst of golden sparks. Rachel hit the floor, rolled over and stabbed upwards, but her sai tip grazed stone. She flipped the blade and swung back, and this time was rewarded as she felt it go in—though into what, Rachel couldn't tell.
There were two horrible screeches—one from the Angel, one from the Blue Ranger outside. There was an explosion of dust, and then the lights stopped flickering. Rachel sat up, as Kaiden sent a line of flame up to the ceiling to light up the room. She swiped dust off her visor, and took the Yellow Ranger's proffered hand.
"Joe! Joe!" The Green Ranger kept crying, trying to reach her teammate. The Blue Ranger lay on his side, unconscious. Rachel rolled him over on his back, revealing a trickle of blood running from his left eye, and scrabbled for the vial of tears she'd left on the table.
"Kaiden, get started after the others, I'll join you," she said. Nodding, Kaiden dashed downstairs. Rachel dripped one of the tears onto Joe's forehead, and waited until his eyes opened before following the Yellow Ranger.
On the way down, something rocked the station. Rachel fell against the wall, jolting her elbow, and wearily wondered what was happening this time. Fischer's voice came on over the comm.
"Monster Yellow is attacking the station."
"Alone?" Rachel asked, pulling herself up.
"It looks that way," Fischer replied.
"I'm on my way out," Kaiden said.
"Right," Rachel said, as the doors opened. She supersped to the Dash Zord, and both Demi-Zords took off at once.
As the doors opened, a miniature sandstorm swept inside. It tinkled off the Demi-Zords' hulls and swept on through. Fischer quickly closed the doors.
"Huh?" Rachel said, turning back towards the inside. "She's going right past us."
"I think we've got a rescue attempt on our hands," Kaiden said grimly.
"I'll go to the other Zord Bay," Rachel said, landing the Demi-Zord and springing out. "It's their only other exit—they can't punch through the hull, it's reinforced and shielded."
"Right," Kaiden said.
"I'm tracking her," Fischer said. "I think—got her! Rangers, Monster Yellow is contained in a force field on the living quarters deck."
"I'm glad you're on our side," Kaiden laughed, exiting the Pride Zord. "Coming up."
He met Rachel in the elevator. The Pink Ranger looked as psyched as Kaiden felt.
"Three Monster Rangers captured, one converted, everybody's back from 1982, we've got the Black Ranger powers back—" Rachel began.
"And we took out a Weeping Angel all by ourselves," Kaiden finished. With mutual, unvoiced consent, the two did a fist bump. The elevator doors opened, and they went to confront the Yellow Monster Ranger.
She'd returned to humanoid form, and was facing the door, arms hanging at her sides. Heather was beside her, holding the still-unconscious Joe.
"Hey," Kaiden said, stopping inches away from the blue-glowing force field.
"I wasn't supposed to be here," the other Yellow Ranger said flatly. "If Marco finds out I disobeyed him to rescue my teammates, he'll probably kill me. He uses our morphers to teleport us—if I were anywhere but here, he could teleport me back. Even if he only got my morpher, he could break it and drain my life force. So I want to join you."
"Really?...That was quick," Kaiden said.
"To you," the Monster Ranger retorted.
"How do we know we can trust you?" Rachel asked, folding her arms.
"You have a telepath," the Yellow Monster Ranger said. "Ask him."
"He's busy," Rachel said.
"Then we'll have to go to him," the Monster Ranger said. Heather stood up.
"I've got an idea," she said.
It was midnight over the desolate-looking Hexagram Lake. Despite the new moon, the three Hyper Mode Zords lit up the entire place like floodlights. Silently, they dropped into the water and shot downwards towards the Hexagram. Now that he got a good look at it, Tony saw that the Hexagram's disc was nowhere near pure white—and scored and gashed from all their attacks.
James began hacking in with the chainsaw sword, Rex and Tony hovering behind him. Swinging around, the Typhoon Zord tossed the chainsaw sword to the Lagrange Zord, and dove through the slowly-closing hole.
Backing up a step, Tony whirled the chainsaw sword, and dove for the nearest of the Hexagram's spokes. In Hyper Mode, cutting through the metal tunnel was as easy as slicing bread. Bubbles shot out of the gap, and the metal tore away with a shriek and spurt of electricity.
Then, Tony glimpsed something out of the corner of his eye. Turning, he just had time to see the powered-up Purple Monster Ranger barreling towards him before it hit. He was slammed upwards, exploding out of the water, and then the Zord shoved him away and peppered him with lasers from his enormous gun.
Tony threw up his shields as quickly as he could, but the first few lasers got through, and he winced as little explosions ripped holes in the Lagrange Zord's hull. Tony darted out of range, up above the treetops.
"Fine, I can handle this. Shield Bits!" He called.
The little metal pieces shot out of their places and towards the evil Zord. He shot up into the sky, vanishing into the dark.
Rex's voice came over the comm. "Tony? What's going on up there?"
"Marco's out and about. Don't worry, I think I can handle it," Tony said, as the Shield Bits swarmed around, looking for the Purple Ranger. "Probably."
Trivia: Weirdly enough, in several of the many rewrites of the climax, the Demi-Zords ripped the main disc of the Hexagram off its base and set it on the ground. Also there was a very brief game of Marco Polo.
