Hello again everyone. I decided to upload this fic after all. It's pretty much a follow up to the fic Koushirou's Search (the original version's ending, not its rewrite with the alternate ending), so even if you've never read that fic or its rewrite, this one should be easy to follow. This story takes place after the Adventure epilogue, but one main difference is that the reunion that they all had in episode 50 of Adventure 02 didn't happen for this fic's continuity, not entirely. Mimi, for this fic's continuity, wasn't there with her son. Now, there are a few things from the previous fic that you all should probably know about, so I'll add that in.
Anyway, in the last fic, Mimi had moved back to Odaiba and was living with her aunt's family, the Nishimuras. They will be mentioned in this fic. Also, in Koushirou's Search, Mrs. Izumi had a baby, and was named by Koushirou. Her name is Miki, and since she is Koushirou's younger sister, she will definitely be mentioned and will most definitely show up, only as an adult, but she'll still remain a very minor character.
Another character that is mentioned briefly is a girl named Kimiko, who is also an adult for this fic, and a woman named Hanada Sui (Nagataki Sui for the rewrite). Both are good friends with Koushirou. Last fic, Kimiko was a four-year-old girl who lost her entire family in a fire, and Koushirou managed to find a home for her with a woman named Sui, who Koushirou refers to as aunt (obasan). Sui was a good friend of Koushirou's biological mother, which is what Koushirou's Search was about in general. Those are the only extra characters I can think of right off who I felt should be mentioned. If any others show up, there will probably be some kind of a description about them pointed out.
As for pairings, for the last fic, it ended with the predictable Taiora (Taichi x Sora), the debatable TakeHika (Takeru x Hikari), and the straight up unexpected Yamami (Yamato x Mimi), which ended up eventually becoming Koumi (Koushirou x Mimi) for the rewrite. Of course this isn't going to be the case for this fic. I'm basing this story on how Adventure originally ended, meaning the pairings are now Yamora (Yamato x Sora) and Kenyako (Ken x Miyako). Everyone else is married to miscellaneous, unknown characters, which was really fun to make up.
Anyway, I shall warn you now. This fic is going to be quite lengthy since it's going to take place for a few months, unless I decide to end it earlier than that. Mimi moves back to Odaiba with her son, and he is trying to adjust to the ways of Japan. Each child (almost, anyway) will end up having some kind of a personal problem or conflict, and that just happens to be Mimi's son's problem, his not wanting to move to Japan. Not to worry, though. The adult Chosens will have their share of problems too. Mimi's just happens to be having to put up with her son's complaining about not wanting to live in Odaiba.
I know you all are expecting a bit more, but there definitely will be. The adult Chosens aren't the only ones who will appear in this fic, but the adult Tamers as well. It's going to primarily be a cross-over fic. There's trouble going on in the Digital World again, and both sides have to fix it, for the most part, but you'll see. One of the children of the Chosens has a direct connection to it, ironically. Everyone will have to work together to fight against an upcoming crisis. Which Tamers characters I use are still undecided, but Ryou is a definite since he's connected to both Adventure and Tamers, and the main three (Takato, Ruki, and Jenrya/Jianliang).
Let's see, what else. Oh yeah, this first chapter was originally written in "script format", only because of the Digimon introducing the story, which was something I used to always do with my fics, but since it's a rule or something now, I had to rewrite it, which was difficult given how much nonsense was involved here. Oh yes, and just ignore the random out of character stuff of the actual Digimon for this introduction.
Now, as always, I do not own anything dealing with the Digimon series or franchise. Bandai and Toei have that honor.
Chapter 00: Fic Description!
"Hello everybody!" all of the Digimon greeted from in front of Tentomon's Tree Condo.
"It's been much too long since we were seen last."
"You said it, Piyomon," Gabumon nodded in agreement.
"It feels good to be back!" said Betamon.
"We are going to be in the story this time, aren't we, d'gya?" asked a weary Armadimon.
"We sure are!" V-mon confirmed.
Agumon cheered and clapped.
"I hope Jou does more for this fic than what he did for Koushirou's Search."
"Don't forget about my Ken-chan!"
"Yes, let's not forget about your 'Ken-chan' and your 'Takeru'."
"Tentomon," asked Patamon, "how'd you know I was going to say that?"
"Just call it a hunch," he answered simply.
"Shouldn't we be telling the readers what the story is going to be about?"
"Well, Palmon, RP did that a little in her fic summary," pointed out Gomamon.
Hawkmon scratched the back of his head. "It wasn't clear enough for me."
"Why not make it clearer, smarty?" snapped Gabumon.
"Fine, I will, but not now!" Hawkmon replied back. "We can do that after the story officially commences."
"We're just here to let the readers know that we Digimon will be around this time, even if RP doesn't want us to be," V-mon added on.
"Yeah!" Armadimon called out.
"So, when do we start introducing the characters?" asked Palmon.
"I guess when we actually see or meet the characters," Hawkmon thoughtfully answered.
"I can't wait," squeaked Wormmon in excitement.
"Me too!" V-mon chimed in.
"Maybe we should still let the readers know what to expect," suggested Agumon.
"I don't see why not," agreed Tentomon.
"How about we only stick to events and explain why some things didn't happen in this fic's particular time line?"
"Good idea, Gabumon!" said Patamon.
"Hey, you know how at the end of Digimon Adventure 02, Digimon became public knowledge and how many people gradually ended up with some as a partner, right?" Everyone nodded to Betamon's query. "Well, RP didn't really do a good job of explaining that in Koushirou's Search. For her fic's continuity, it never happens. People know of them, but only a handful of people received a Digimon partner for whatever the reason.
"We Digimon, for this story, don't spend much time in the real world, except for Hawkmon, Wormmon, Palmon, and Piyomon since they help out their human partners on a regular basis. Hawkmon helps out Miyako, Wormmon goes on assignment with Ken, Palmon works with Mimi on her cooking show, and Piyomon helps to Sora with her clothing designs and sometimes models them for her.
"Tentomon sometimes spend time in the human world, but he spends more of it in the Digital World to help gather information for Koushirou. The rest of us stay in our world and our partners stay in theirs, but traveling between our worlds is easier now compared to how it was years ago. Almost anyone can travel back and forth if a gate randomly opens, but there are still people out there who have never seen a real live Digimon other than what they've seen on television or from what's been told to them."
"V-mon also spends time in the human world to help out Daisuke and so does Agumon," Tailmon added on. "The rest of us just visit often."
"The reunion that Digimon Adventure 02 ended with in 2027 didn't fully happen in this story's continuity since Mimi and her son weren't there," chirped Piyomon. "This particular story takes place in 2029 and to get the original ages of our human partners, who are now adults, and their children just take away two years from the ages that will be given later. Those are the ages that RP thinks that each child was based on the Adventure epilogue since no official ages or names were given for them. It's all speculation."
"What else is going to be different from the series?" asked Agumon.
"Um, all the stuff that happened in Diablomon no Gyakushuu (Diablomon Strikes Back) never happened," Patamon blurted out as almost an afterthought. "It does happen, sort of, but not in the way that it does for the actual movie. For this story, it's all extra stuff." Patamon puffed up his chest proudly. "You'll see how later as you read it. The hint is that it's connected to my Takeru."
"Wait wait," V-mon protested, "does that mean no Imperial Dramon Paladin Mode?"
"And no Omegamon?" asked Agumon fearfully.
Tentomon shook his head.
"Why?" asked Betamon. "Imperial Dramon PM and Omegamon are cool Digimon."
"Not to RP! She thinks that both are overrated and she never cared for Omegamon much!"
"Come on, Gomamon," frowned Gabumon. "We're standing right here!"
"Yeah," V-mon sniffled, "you don't have to make it sound so bad."
Gomamon smirked. "I'm sorry."
"You don't mean that, do you?" questioned Agumon suspiciously.
"Of course I do."
"Your apology was not sincere!" Gabumon accused the water mammal. "How can you be the Digimon partner of the human with the crest trait of sincerity if you do not make sincere apologies?"
"That's as sincere as I'm getting as far as Diablomon no Gyakushuu is concerned!" he argued while giving Agumon and Gabumon a hurtful look. "I wasn't even in it! I've never had any decent movie time or scenes! I rarely had any decent scenes for the show!"
"You weren't the only one," sighed Palmon.
"We weren't either. Please calm down, Gomamon," pleaded Piyomon.
"You guys did more than I did for the show," he muttered.
"Um…um…how come Diablomon no Gyakushuu isn't part of this story's continuity?" asked Wormmon, trying his best to regain the peace.
"Because of my Mimi-chan."
"What does Mimi have to do with it?"
"Quite a bit, Patamon," answered Hawkmon.
"Mind explaining that?" requested Tailmon.
"Certainly," both Tentomon and Hawkmon nodded.
"The film takes place in 2003. It is assumed that it's sometime in March, which is right before the children start back to school. We figured this out for a couple of reasons…one being when the film was released in theaters…spring. With the Adventure films starting from movie 2, the seasons match. For example, movie 3 took place in summer, it was released in the summer. Movie 2 took place during our human partners' spring break, and the film was released in spring.
"Now, ignoring that for now, the other way we figured it out was due to my Miyako-san, who was trying on school uniforms, as she was about to begin attending Odaiba Junior High that upcoming April. In the previous story, Mimi-san would have been residing in Odaiba for when all of that takes place."
"RP-han mentioned that Mimi-han had moved back to Japan and transferred into Odaiba Junior High right after the spring break of her second year. That would have been April or so of 2003. For the movie, she was flying in from America to help. If she was already in Odaiba, why would she have flown to Odaiba like the movie? The entire situation is crazy time wise, which is why RP-han dropped it altogether." He sighed. "I just confused myself!"
"And Tentomon is supposed to be the all-mighty knowledgeable one…" Gomamon sarcastically remarked.
"Don't get angry at me because I'm a more important character than you!"
Gomamon got up into Tentomon's face, his fur standing up on his neck along with his pointy ears. "Take that back, Tentomon!"
"Okay, I will!"
"I'd like to see you try it!" The lady-bug like creature flew back and flapped his wings hard. "Petite Thunder!"
Gomamon just barely dodged the powerful electrical attack. "That's low for you! I would never attack one of my fellow Digimon allies!"
"Aww, backing out of a fight since all you have is that fish attack of yours?" Tentomon taunted. "Throw them out and I'll zap them!"
Gomamon shook angrily as he began to evolve. "Gomamon shinka…Ikkakumon!"
"Two can play at that game! Tentomon shinka…Kabuterimon!"
The torpedo launched by Ikkakumon met with Kabuterimon's electrical sphere, which caused a small explosion. All of the other Digimon took cover, while sighing over the stupidity of the scene in extreme embarrassment.
"If those two don't stop, I'll slash both of them," grumbled Tailmon in annoyance.
"RP is probably going to never get this story started with the way those two are arguing," pointed out Betamon in slight worry.
"We didn't even finish giving out extra information about what to expect for this story," Gabumon added. "This just may turn the readers away, especially if they missed the beginning."
"I don't feel like walking around with a headache because of this," complained Tailmon.
"What should we do?" asked V-mon.
Agumon crossed his arms. "I'm not getting involved.
"I always felt that it is wise to avoid fights and confrontation," Gabumon said.
"You are so brave, Agumon, Gabumon," responded Palmon is monotone.
"Yes, very," replied Piyomon, same state as Palmon.
Patamon flew into the air, and said, in a heroic voice, "Angemon will stop them!" He looked towards the two fighting Digimon, a look of determination on the small mammal's face. "Patamon shinka…Angemon!"
After evolving into the angelic-Digimon, he flew right in between the two now bickering Digimon, who were hurling insults at one another.
"Take back what you said earlier!" demanded Ikkakumon.
"I refuse to lie for your sake! I can't help it if it's the truth!"
"You have a swelled head, you know that?"
"Of course I do! See, I was so important that the Digimon Kaiser even used a part of me to help create Chimeramon! My hard head as Kabuterimon! I didn't see any Gomamon or Ikkakumon or Zudomon parts on Chimeramon!"
"What'd you say? !"
"You heard me!"
"You guys should really stop fighting," Angemon told them.
"Remember you two, fighting never solves anything. Everyone should always talk out their differences. Everyone gets along better that way."
During the exchange, the two didn't even seem to notice the majestic blue and white angel trying to encourage the two to speak as opposed to fight.
"No, wait! Hey, stop! I'm right here! CEASE FIRE!"
Both of the attacks hit Angemon, which caused him to devolve.
"Are you okay, d'gya?"
Streaked tears ran down the cute mammal-Digimon's face as he cried out, "No!"
"If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself," Tailmon said while exasperatingly shaking her head. She then turned to the bug Digimon beside her. "Come on!"
Wormmon shook. "Me?"
"B-but why me?"
"Because I said so, now hurry up and evolve so we can stop those two from hurting each other or somebody else, like they did Angemon."
Fearfully, Wormmon nodded, as he was much too scared to even disobey his feline friend whenever she showed annoyance.
"Tailmon, chou shinka…Angewomon!"
"What do we do now?"
"Just do as I do," Angewomon instructed. She flew over to Kabuterimon and Ikkakumon. "You two, stop acting like idiots! It's getting annoying!"
The two ignored the blonde as they continued to argue and fight.
"You two asked for it," she muttered. "Stingmon, try to attack Kabuterimon to stop him, but don't use anything too powerful."
"Right!" he nodded.
Angewomon focused on Ikkakumon as she began to power up. "Holy…"
Angewomon's less powerful Holy Arrow hit Ikkakumon dead on, which caused him to devolve, while Stingmon stabbing Kabuterimon caused him to devolve. Their mission accomplished, both devolved themselves.
"Stupid Tentomon and Gomamon…" the feline muttered under her breath.
"Please stop fighting! !" Wormmon shouted at the two, his voice timid.
Upon closer inspection of the two fighting Digimon allies, both were knocked out, their eyes swirling.
Hawkmon poked the two with a stick. "Tentomon, Gomamon?"
"Oh no!" Palmon cried. "I think you two overdid it!"
"Who cares!" snapped Tailmon. "Those two were getting way out of control with their fighting! They would've ended up hurting themselves or one of us."
"U-um…we better hurry so that RP can hurry and begin this story," Betamon reminded the group again. "The sooner she starts, the sooner she can go back to introducing all of the characters."
Tailmon nodded. "That's the best idea I've heard all day."
"So from us to you…" Piyomon began.
"…enjoy the story!" the rest finished up, minus Tentomon and Gomamon who were both still knocked out.
