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…”

Reality XII Hypnos


reality_xii__hypnos_by_ayhelenk-dbaphp61

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.

Ryo Akiyama from Reality XII


ryo12-

Ryo Akiyama´s  reality nº 12 counterpart is a digidestined called…Ryo Akiyama!
In this reality  Ryo  is the Digidestined that holds the crests of Light and Hope and owns his own Patagato pair  and he´s certainly quite different from his tamer counterpart.

He´s bolder, much more assertive than the tamer and does no waste time to get the job done. Born a genius he also took the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs route: by the time he was 19 he left college and started his own software company and by the time he was 20 he was a billionaire as well. The name of his company is…HYPNOS.  Like the reality 03 Hypnos it is situated in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building although it is advertised as just another Microsoft-type company  instead of an organization. In fact, this Hypnos  has nothing to do with the government.
He founded it with Alexander McCoy , Yggdrasil´s human host, as a mean to monitor the activities between the Digital and Real world. Ryo acts , in public, as the genius yet somewhat irresponsible president of the company while Alex secretly runs the Digital business with his team (which consists of the AU versions of the tamers themselves)

The government is wary about Akiyama´s activities and his relation with digimons and several times sent its spies to the company and steal its secrets. One of them is none other than a fella named Mitsuo Yamaki…
