The other side of the fox

the_other_side_of_the_fox_by_ayhelenk-dc58y1qRenamon ´s dreams were lately filled by a mantle of mystery and oddness. A silver haired girl would show up without fail in front of the digital fox and bow silently before the fox.

As always, Renamon would pop the obligatory question “who are you?” only to get a sweet yet melancholic smile from the other party before resuming her way.

Three days before Ruki Makino´s appointed Christmas party Renamon was visited, once again, by the mystery girl.

But this time the girl spoke!

” Until now the tamers were able to successfully restore the equilibrium between human and digital worlds. You fought against menace and won. But…”

“But…?” Renamon frowned , The girl´s voice sounded diaphanous as a crystal but could sense sadness beneath the melodic notes “but what?”

“Unfortunately, for what´s about to be unveiled, neither tamers nor digimons own the enough will and strength to overcome it” sentenced the girl ” And I´m afraid that Ruki Makino and her digimon are the weakest ones from the so called Frontiers…”

“What?!” Renamon managed to keep  her cool despite feeling absolutely insulted ” Who do you believe you are to make such obnoxious statements? You don´t know anything about us!”

“I know EVERYTHING about you” contradicted the girl “Since the very beginning, Renamon-sama”

Her words sounded so firm, so certain that the fox felt a chill running through her system.

“Among the tamers you are the ones who  carry an unforgivable sin. Years may have passed but it´s still there” continued the girl “The codes of those digimons that accidentally showed up in the human world and that you, without an ounce of compassion, gleefully absorbed them into your system after falling in battle…”

Renamon clenched a fist.

“Both you and Makino-san are equally responsible for breaking the rules ” the silverhaired girl pointed her finger at Renamon, her tone didn´t change but her sapphire eyes shone with disappointment ” Those codes were supposed to be returned to the digiworld to be reborn as future digieggs. You stole countless of digimon´s of their future!”

Her words sent an ache through Renamon´s heart yet the fox refused to acknowledge it.

“I did what I had to. They were willing to destroy Ruki´s city and her welfare comes first…”

The girl shook her head.

“Keep telling yourself that but the past ´s about to catch up….if any of you are hoping to defeat the upcoming threat, then it´s about time you learn what´s the true meaning of being a digidestined and digimon alike…”


The girl´s none other than Renamon´s past incarnation: Kiyo Zenkō a digidestined from reality 09.

Digidestined Logan – Tri version


I drew Logan Montgomery when he was 16, during the time he and his friends went to Odaiba as exchange students and having a blast driving Taichi & Co to insanity while investigating some anomalies taking place in both the real and digital worlds.

logan-triI will say this: Logan´s life is far from being bed of roses. His twin sister Elizabeth constantly bosses him around and his chosen digimon (or better said imposed) is a feral Mihiarmon that must watch over 24/7. Deva Mihiramon is as trustworthy and feisty as Ryo Akiyama´s Cyberdramon and even being under a spell -Tempus ANgemon, yhe boss, managed to turn Mihiramon into a cat so Logan can control it (Just like Elizabeth turning an unwitting Lobomon into a Gabumon as her chosen digimon much to the latter´s chagrin) and go to school, etc… of course even as a cat the Deva is quite feisty and poor Logan cannot trust it wandering by itself through the town like many of his neighbors do with their felines because Bengalmon (everybody assumed it´s a Bengal so Logan nicknamed it like hat when he´s not calling him ·the Damned cat from Hell”)

Only when it´s allowed to digivolve into the holy Baihumon Logan can have a peaceful (or something close) chat with his digimon.

I can say that Logan is still seeking for a girlfriend that´s not scared of his digimon…

Reality XII: Jiahua Li and Lopmon


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!

In terms of personality she´s as earth grounded, stoic and brave as her reality 03 counterpart. She´s a tad more stubborn, though!

The rhythmic gymnastics used to be her entire life, her skills were so outstanding that by the time she was 14 everybody predicted that she would qualify to the Olympics and score several medals. She´d been holding tight to that dream, promise of a glorious future. Nothing could stop her , she was as powerful and unstoppable as a train…until an accident during one performance , a bad fall ended tearing apart her ligaments; her injury was so bad that Jiahua was told that she could compete no longer. She was 15 at that time.

Jiahua struggled terribly to go on with her life. She wished to win the Olympics more than everything and that dream was no more. Depression took over her, barely paying attention at school, refusing to talk to anybody…Jia was in her darkest days when she came across, for the first time, with Digimons.  A battle between the digidestineds and the Olympos XII took place in Fukuoka  and she, like her future comrades, witnessed it firsthand!

She watched in an awe Tia Yagami ´s group  and their digimons holding an extraordinary fight against a deranged Jupitermon (a virus infected at least half of them and were acting as deranged psychos ) and once it was over, Jian realized that she was able to put behind her old memories and start anew.

Not too long after that, Digimons were revealed to the public albeit as part of a virtual game created by   the so called Hypnos company. Nobody (even the future tamers)  recalled a huge battle taking place in Fukuoka,  after the digidestineds chased away the digi-invaders Alexander Mc Coy (current Yggdrasil´s host) erased everybody´s memories about the incident.

Hypnos´s president, reality XII Ryo Akiyama,  introduced Digimons into the public as a 3-D virtual reality rpg ; the public loved the concept and millions from each corner of the world joined the fun. With an odd feeling of familiarity Jiahua created an avatar for herself and joined the digi-tournaments.  She found it so fascinating that made it her aim to defeat the “King of Digimons”  and steal both  the first place and the King tile from Riku Makino .

The digigames was just a ploy designed by Ryo Akiyama and  Alexander Mc Coy (current Yggdrasil´s host) who were actually searching among the contestants somebody worthy enough to be recruited as the next batch of Cavaliers (that´s how digidestineds were called in that reality) in order to protect the gates between digital an real worlds.

Jia would be eventually picked by Yggdrasil as a future cavalier and was granted a Lopmon as digital partner. But hey! This is not the average Lopmon. This one is a white, completely different from any lopmon and terriermons from any reality. The golden rings certainly point out holy codes!

Reality XII: Riku Makino and the Sistermons

Besides the AU of Taichi Yagami & co, there´s also the reality 12 AU of the tamers.
In this case, Ruki Makino´s AU counterpart is a lad named Riku!


Like  his 03 female counterpart he´s a cute yet poison-ivy-esque , introvert geek that avoids all sort of sentimentalism. Because of his ethereal , unconventional beauty he´s often mistaken as a girl (which he HATES with passion) and is ready to kill whoever dares to call him “cute”!
Having grown up in a broken family (like his 03 female counterpart he took his folks´divorce pretty bad) he´s not the type of pursuing either friendships nor romantic relationships. He viewed both concepts as eyesores so  and every time he received a  confession(from both sides) or an invitation to join a cliqué he would always tell them to get lost.  He was fated to follow the lone wolf path for the rest of his life until he came across  with the word Digimon  ( the so called Hypnos company launched a 3-D virtual reality rpg with Digital Monsters ) and became so engrossed with it that in little time he created an avatar and  joined the digi-tournaments. He lived, breathed the games, collecting countless of trophies…and eventually he became known as the “King of Digimons” because of his number of victories!

Yet Riku´s goal was to beat Ryo Akiyama, Hypnos´s president and the equivalent of Bobby Fischer in Digital Games. Riku would never believe he was the King until he defeated Akiyama.

Akiyama, though, with Alexander Mc Coy (current Yggdrasil´s host) was actually searching among the contestants somebody worthy enough to be recruited as the next batch of Cavaliers (that´s how digidestineds were called in that reality) in order to protect the gates between digital an real worlds.

So the day he became a chosen, he found himself in the digiworld, at Kabuki Sakuyamon´s temple and two digital twin girls were standing before him and exclaimed at the same time: “ON YGGDRASIL´S NAME, WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?!”

The twins were known as Sistermons and used to be Anubismon´s assistants until he ordered them to leave the digi realm of death and partner with a digidestined and learn about humans that way. The sistermons agreed only because they wished to become the former King´s new companions and declared they would be much better suited to serve Nova Takariyama than the ANgemon that was currently by her side. So when they asked Kabuki Sakuyamon to summon the King , the deity limited to smile and replied:” So you want to serve the King, right…?”

And the priestess did as asked and used her powers to summon the King, her pwoers navigated through the gate only to get a hold of the person who´s currently going by that title and was none other than Riku Makino!

So let´s say that neither Riku nor the Sistermons had a promising beginning. The Sistermons expected a girl and got a fella instead. Riku wished to be given a wonderful, powerful digimon like Omegamon and got a set of female brats which promised to turn his life into a nightmare since he dreaded girls above everything! (He kinda had a girl phobia )

“SERIOUSLY?! GIRLS?!”was Riku´s horrified response “NO THANKS!”

“You wished to become a full fleshed digidestined and the Sistermons wished to serve the King” was Kabuki Sakuyamon´s sweet response “So technically there´s no mistake and it´s not a match that can be dissolved…”

So Riku had no choice but to keep the Sistermons as his new digipartners and get used to live with two nutsy-nutsy sisters. It wasn´t easy but they managed to put aside their differences, become proper partners and ended becoming a nice little family.

Despite Riku not being Nova Takariyama they ended becoming pretty attached to Riku, so attached that -like Angewomon and Ladydevimon for Mirei – they ended competing for his affections and had been like that for years…

Reality XII Hypnos


Reality 12 Ryo Akiyama followed Steve Jobs and Bill Gates route: quitting college and start his own software company and become a billionaire at the age of 20.
In this case he founded HYPNOS.
At the public´s eyes Hypnos is just another Microsoft-type company but is indeed much more than that. It´s actually a quite complex system that serves as a connection between the Digital and Real worlds.
