A tender hug in Lincoln Center


This scene takes place sometime before  Angemon returned to Nova´s life (fav.me/db204ry and fav.me/da0bn5l ).
Nova´s 16 now and living in New York. Ryo is 18 and is currently one of the new digidestineds known as Cavaliers, protecting both worlds with a lovely set of Patagato ;)

Time passed and much to Nova´s desperation nobody , even her own family, believed she had a brother. For a strange reason anything related to Magnus Takariyama was erased from the collective memories save for Nova and Ryo´s and their background stories were inevitably altered. Nova was adopted when she was 8 by the Takariyamas after her russian parents passed away in a traffic accident. Ryo never had a frenemy and was still the number 1 on the rankings while closely followed by Hideko Ichijouji who in turn considered him her sworn rival.

He should had consoled Nova and admit he also remembered Magnus but again, the shock from that time in the Digiworld prevented him from saying anything. The one who ended consoling Nova was Tia Yagami.

 

Ryo could not bring up his own experience to the light until, one year later, the day he was summoned as a Digidestined with Tia Yagami, Sora Takenouchi, Inori Izumi, Miyako Ishida and Yori Kido by Kabuki Sakuyamon….

The new set of digidestineds found themselves in a shinto-type temple and were greeted by Kabuki Sakuyamon, several renamons and an Angemon standing by her side. The chosen digimons for the chosen digidestineds were there as well.

“Long time, no see Akiyama-san…” the deity chose to address him before anybody else, even Tia Yagami who was already infatuated by her “As you can see, this place changed considerably since the last time… Gatomon, Patamon. Here´s your designated partner…”

Such familiarity baffled Tia and her friends and demanded to know what´s going on. Ryo was forced to confess he´d been in that strange world before like Nova. Because for some strange reason Nova´s digivice wasn´t responding to the calls from the Digiworld Sakuyamon had no other option but summon other people. The rules of compatibility lead to Tia Yagami & co due to their closeness with the former King.

“SO SHE´D BEEN TELLING THE TRUTH THE WHOLE TIME AND YOU KEPT SILENT ABOUT IT?!!!”

That pill proved to be hard to swallow and neither Tia nor the rest of the group were able to forgive his cowardice. Had he opened his mouth earlier and support Nova´s pleas she may not had found her stay in Japan that unbearable. The girl could not stand being in a place filled with her brother´s memories and transferred to the USA. Because she turned to be a genius in the music field, Miyako Ishida ´s connections granted Nova a special invitation to study in Juilliard with all her living expenses paid. The group missed Nova dearly and always felt guilty about not being able to support her claims but after learning about Nova´s stint as a digidestined and how much she searched for her brother in that world pretty shocked everybody. Tia ´s heart felt it for the little girl who went through so much and could rely on nobody.

“YOU DON´T HAVE GUTS, DO YOU?” that was Tia´s somber remark towards Ryo

“Coward” were Sora and Makoto´s sentence.

Ryo  started his career as digidestined being at odds with the group and it would take several adventures until Ryo would finally regain his friends´ trust.

After some adventures the digidestineds gained the ability of navigating between the human and Digital Worlds and during one missing, Ryo finally gathered the enough courage to pay Nova a visit in the Sates and profusedly apologized to her.

“I´m sorry for keeping quiet for so long..I have no excuse”

Her eyes became filled with tears.

“So..you…you remember my brother…?”

“He´s the best frenemy I ever had…”

“Akiyama-kun..!” she rushed to his arms and cried like Saint Magdalene. Nova cried in relief. After so long she finally found somebody who remembered Magnus and forgave Ryo on the spot. Why he lacked the courage to speak before did not matter to her. The important thing was the fact that Ryo REMEMBERED. Because that meant she wasn´t crazy and could actually share stuff about Magnus that she longed for so long…! “Thank you…”

The Friendly Rescue


the_friendly_rescue_by_ayhelenk-dbqttvi
It will take place sometime after fav.me/dam5scw , Taichi´s group was attacked by a group of rogues lead by Lilithmon and Beelzemon and Hikari Yagami found herself in real trouble when one of the minions managed to go beyond Angewomon´s guard and attempted to kidnap Hikari Yagami.

Taichi´s Wargreymon, severely injured mid battle, was back as Koromon and falling from the sky with Taichi and both would had met a certain death had not Ange caught the pair in time! There were just a few seconds left before Hikari was about to be dragged to a portal opened by Lilithmon and thrown there…Ange and Angewomon were too far to catch her in time and plenty of enemies were having them entertained.

“SPIRAL MASQUERADE!!!!”

The portal exploded just before the girl was about to be sucked….

“….!!” Hikari barely could believe her luck when she found herself in a pink haired warrior ´s arms. The whole outfit was pink save for the four body-sash blades that extend from its armor. “I don´t recall seeing you before but thanks!”

“Really?” mumbled the rescuer “You ought to have your eyesight checked, of course we know each other!”

“WHO THE HECK IS THAT ANNOYING PERSON?!” roared Lilithmon “I HATE IT WHEN UNEXPECTED GUESTS SHOW UP TO MY PARTIES!!”

Beelzemon shrugged his arms but said nothing. He´d rather show his annoyance in silence.

“Great to see you finally joining the battle, Nova!” exclaimed Ange in a cheerful tone. Until that moment his partner used to walk away from any participation since she did not like what she called “the group of digi-brats” and found them an eyesore. All she wanted to do was seek for her missing brother and nothing else. Fighting a war ? There were more than enough digidestineds to foil Lucemon (or whoever went by that name)´s plans!

Taichi and the others contemplated with surprise the newly arrived  Nova. She´s usually blonde and wearing a white and blue outfit..and now she looked so different! Nobody could guess that as a Supreme she was  now wielding Lordknightmon´s codes (fav.me/db1qu4v) hence her appearance was radically altered and being, for a limited amount of time, the owner of part of the royal knight´s powers…

“I KNEW IT!” Hikari recovered enough from her shock and hugged Nova “I KNEW THAT YOU WOULD NEVER ABANDON US!”

For a moment Nova´s eyes shone with was an apparent delight.

“You remind me so much of Angewomon…I´m looking forward fighting together…” the digidestined of Light was so excited, hopeful that anybody would had melted with her sweetness. Not too far from them Angewomon smiled as well. The so called Nova proved herself as a noble, courageous person by rescuing dearest Hikari-chan…! She was more than willing to forget about the previous nastiness between them  (fav.me/d9td2fr) …

Nova looked at the hopeful girl and smirked. The following moment Nova´s arms moved by themselves,  unceremoniously letting Hikari fall to the ground!

“WHAT THE FUCK?!!!” yelled Taichi

“HIKARI-CHAN?!!!!”

The villains ´s mouths opened wider than a swiss cheese, shocked.

“NOVA!” chastised Ange “You naughty girl, let her fall on purpose?!”

“WHAT?!!!!” exclaimed the rest of the public . Angewomon´s eyes flamed under the helmet and Ange, after making sure that Hikari was just seeing the stars floating above her head but out of danger nevertheless, continued with his remarks “WHAT´S GOING ON WITH YOU?!”

Nova was supposed to be 25 years old but the digiglobal spell erased most of her memories, was back into her 18s and blinded by her wish of rescuing her missing elder brother Magnus she was at a volatile stage…

And much to everybody´s dismay Nova replied ” Everybody must  protect the digidestined of Light that caught Homeostasis´s eyes and may own  one or two special effects  under the sleeve…But guess what? There are TONS of digidestineds with special features!” and she finally condescended to stare at Hikari  ” All it takes is  a self recognized bitch to recognize an INSUFFERABLE BRAT.  Get a damn grip of yourself and stop whining about the goddamed darkness…!”

Yep, Nova was more than willing to spread some tough love…

 

 

 

The Origin of Saturn Angemon


the_origin_of_saturn_angemon_by_ayhelenk-dbq5cqw

“Because of the sins of a fake you and his partner your reality is no more. Because of Yggdrasil and Homeostasis ineptitude an angel of Nexus was allowed to do whatever he pleased. And because of your inability of protecting the children that were entrusted to you you lost everything. Awake as a new angel and bring on the order that should had been….”

Angemon from reality 01 Omega was supposed to be non existent until he was resurrected  by Hetereostasis  and given the holy scythe. And since then he swore to restore what´s rightfully his even if he had to summon Chaos…

HETEREOSTASIS


 

hetereostasis_by_ayhelenk-dbq4oyq

Hetereostasis is a digital lifeform, a Host Computer or Digigod like Yggdrasil and Homeostasis. Unlike the other two who rule on the Digital worlds on a Server of the Network Nexus is above any server;   it is actually a multiversal  Host Computer like Nexus as it  rules over Time and the connection between realities.

Speaking about Nexus, Heterostais is actually its counterpart and some its actions ended causing an unwelcomed effect through realities and brought more than one paradox reality on the plate.

In reality 06 it was Hetereostasis that convinced Bagramon to go against Homeostasis…

Neo Cherubimon


neo_cherubimon_by_ayhelenk-dbq1ejo
In the story besides the AU of Taichi Yagami & co, there´s also the reality 12 AU of the tamers.
In this case, Li Jian-Liang´s ( Henry Wong) AU counterpart is a girl named Jiahua (fav.me/dboog3l) and is partnered with a Lopmon.

This is not the average Lopmon. This one is a white, completely different from any lopmon and terriermons from any reality and when the digivice´s light turns golden will reach an amazing mega form: Neo Cherubimon…

The Crush


the_crush_by_ayhelenk-dbpve0e

 

Sometimes it takes a little alteration from the past to create a butterfly effect in the future. Or an impulsive action may create a paradox that would endanger a whole reality.
And when a reckless action by Nova Takariyama and Tempus Angemon caused the non existence of Takeru Takaishi and Hikari Yagami in reality 01, the wheels of Destiny went nuts hence reality 01 became Reality 01 Omega.

Without the existence of the digidestineds of Hope and Light, not only Taichi Ygami and Yamatto Ishida never met their siblings  the very own configuration of the Digiworld was altered as well…

From the original 8, only Sora Takenouchi remained as digidestined. In this paradox reality none of the others were granted a digivice hence she became part of a very different team fav.me/dbp71m8 …but Love is still Love and while going through different circumstances Sora Takenouchi ´s spirit remained pretty much the same: strong, beautiful and ready to protect everybody…

“Hey! You don´t need to hide them from me” smiled Sora to the crying boy “I understand…”

Steve Worthington ´s body tensed considerably. How did she find out?! He was so damn sure he found a good spot where to be alone and let go all his tenseness without making the ridiculous in front of the others…! But he was not alone anymore and his eyes, moments before covered in tears, were sparkling in a complete embarrassment.

“I wasn´t crying!” he protested quite quickly

The girl ´s smile grew wider and her fingers touched Steve´s wet cheeks.

“Were you peeling some onions, then, Steve-san?”  she tried not to sound too tease-tease but the English boy´s face looked so adorable ! With those black curls, green eyes Steve Worthington resembled a doll and she had to contain an impulse of pinching his rosy cheeks.

The lad brushed off what was left of his tears and crossed his arms, attempting to show some manly pride only to look frailer than before. He wasn´t willing to admit to anybody that he was scared to death. He always assumed that he would face an uncertain destiny filled with unpleasant events and having to fight monsters once the day to go to Eton arrives. And now, in his 11s, he was going to fight against monsters for real in a parallel world called Digiworld assisted by friendly creatures called Digimons.
He already had his quota of stress, beginning from a strict aristocratic family, struggles on going along with a half sister he never knew he had – until Mirei Mikagura crashed into his place some months ago (fav.me/dax75xk) and turned his life into a holy mess- the fearsome perspective of going to Eton and finally – but not less important- that little Digidestined business. He was dragged to an unfamiliar world with other kids to defeat the so called Dark Masters and free the mentioned Digiworld otherwise they would not be able to go back home. So it was quite understandable that all the stress he´d been accumulating became too much of a burden to Steve´s sensitive heart and hoped that crying his lungs off would alleviate it.

But now the damn girl and her Piyomon witnessed the petty scene!

“No! And again, I wasn´t crying!” he was a Worthington for Heaven´s sake! If his father ever heard about him letting a girl catch him off guard, crying, he would lecture the boy until his 40s!

You SO remind me of Yagami-kun, he would say the exact thing! If I wasn´t so damn sure that you two belong to different islands I would say you are birds of the same feather! Right Piyomon?” and she knelt besides him. Piyomon assented, amused by the scene.

“What brings you here? “ demanded to know Steve, frowning “If you want to laugh feel free to do it!” he used the usual sarcasm. They  had an awkward beginning when they landed for the first time in File Island , Sora was quite assertive brat and Steve a quite spoiled brat and those types of personalities were destined to clash. They certainly exchanged a good quota of arguments which Sora won most of the times.

She just meant to go for him and call him back to the group. The leader – Takumi Shiro- was busy planning their next moves with Akiyama-san and Tentomon , Mikagura-san decided that taking a nap was more fitting to her tastes than hearing an endless chorus of ideas that might lead them to nowhere. Sora wasn´t too keen on bringing back the lost lamb to the herd but offered anyways. When she found out his tears all her feelings of dislike towards him  evaporated on the spot. She ended realizing that under that cantankerous, presumptuous facade Steve Worthing was just a kid like everybody else…

“I won´t laugh” she vehemently shook her head ” I am also overwhelmed by the current situation and so is the rest” she pointed at their comrades, sitting under a nearby tree ” If I could I would also cry my heart out”

Her words puzzled Steve.

” What do you mean by that? You are a girl, of course you can cry!”

Piyomon said nothing thinking how she never saw, even once, her human cry.

” Not this girl “ replied Sora ” I can´t cry neither in public nor alone no matter how much I try” the last time Sora  cried her mother ended belittling the child and declared that as a Takenouchi she had to strengthen her resolve and tears were nothing but weakness. Something inside Sora broke that day and hadn´t been able to cry ever again which puzzled her friends , greatly.

“Then I envy you!” sighed Steve “Please, lend me some of that ability. It would save me a lot of trouble, especially when I´m dealing with father´s perpetum mobile of dickness!”

Sora finally laughed.

“Only if you trade some of those tears with me! I would be grateful indeed then everybody at school would stop calling me a freak!”

Steve smiled for the first time.

“I wouldn´t mind being called freak. It´s way better than being called sissy “  being born with a delicate, subtle template was something he hated about himself;  Steve was at a stage in which he still didn´t look too masculine and could be easily confused as a girl if he wore a skirt. How many times did his peers at school made fun of him because of his unique beauty ? He could write a dozen of books! He kinda hoped that by the time he was going to Eton his looks would be less “adorable” and way manlier otherwise he may follow Dante´s pilgrimage from the Purgatory (primary school) to Hell (middle and high school). “Whatever. I wasn´t really crying, there was some dust in my eyes”

” Okay, if you say so…” Sora kept looking at him and in a particular tender voice she added “ But let me tell you this:  no matter what, I swear that I am going to protect you!”

“UH?!” the boy and Piyomon let escape the exclamation at the same time.

Sora kept talking, unfazed by their reactions.

“I really mean it for all she knew Steve-san was the weakest of the group due to his sensibility and undeniable innocence. He was also the only non Japanese fella from the group and could barely properly  speak  their language – which Ryo said it was a pain in the ass attempt to establish a dialogue with the foreigner digidestined and Mirei was unwilling to make a bridge. Takumi and Sora´s English vocabulary was limited- ” You are my friend and I always protect my friends “

Steve frowned not sure he understood her words but then a smile emerged in his lips.

” Really?

She placed a hand over his cheek and gently caressed it.

It breaks my heart seeing a friend cry alone. Whatever´s your burden , please, share it with me. I may suck on crying but I am a good listener “ her tone sounded as sweet as the most delicious honey and Steve found himself being drawn to it. It wasn´t a fake sign of sympathy, the girl really meant those words! ” I am going to protect you”

Her words could had easily sparkled his pride and he would had given a crude response about him not being a princess and that it was a man´s duty to protect the lady. But he did not. It was the first time someone told him that kind of thing and whenever it came from a boy or a girl it felt quite good being shown that interest. From what he could tell Steve always lead a lonely life and seldom had friends except the Montgomery siblings. And he like a castaway thirsty of affection so he would take in any kindness.

Are you a candidate for Lancelot or what?” he took Sora´s hand and kissed it “But I cannot say I dislike the gesture. Thank you…”

Sora ´s cheeks reddened like a pair of apples.

“HEY! Don´t do that! “ she was never kissed like that before “ It´s outrageous!” and took back her hand .

Steve´s smile grew wider, amused by her flustered face. He was beginning to see the girl under a new, much pleasant light.

I don´t mind having a guardian angel. Especially a Japanese angel his green eyes shone like a pair of emeralds. The more he looked at Sora the more he felt attracted to her ” When we grow up , please continue doing that as my wife…” he added in an impulse.

The following moment he was back on the ground with the mark of a slap stamped on the cheek.

“YOU ARE AN IDIOT!” the girl furiously went back with the rest, fuming. She was beginning to care about the Englishman only for him to throw another joke at her face..!

Piyomon sighed and followed her comrade.

But it wasn´t a joke…” would mumble Steve. And one thing´s for sure, even when they later learned that this was an alternate reality, the so called reality 01 omega and forced to witness Shukumeimon´s display of powers to fix the reality mess his love for Sora Takenouchi would remain intact….

Reality 01 Omega – Sora Takenouchi

But she´s still different to her original self, more assertive and would seldom look back whenever she took a decision. And like her reality 012 counterpart, (fav.me/daioatv )  her Piyomon would reach Joou  Hououmon form…
