Howdy! So! My name's mpuppy4, you may shorten that however you will. For a brief summary, I've been watching Digimon since I discovered one the comic books in my elementary school library (how many people can say that's how they got into it), and also watched the movie before the actual show, oops. In my early days as a fan, about when I was halfway through season 4, I invented a really stupid AU: one where the season 2 cast gets spirit evolutions.
Basically the idea is: what if I took two of the most widely despised seasons, smashed them together, and made it good?
Actually my line of thinking back then was that the seasons were good. And, to be fair, I'm still very fond of 02 and Frontier. I recognize that they have some downright inexcusable writing at times, and certain characters may have been handled pretty poorly **coughcoughMiyakoandIzumi** but they hold a special place in my heart. Also I just really love the cast of 02, they have the best chemistry in my opinion and I feel like the characters were really underutilized.
Anyway, I was talking about my fanfiction, wasn't I? I ended up scribbling out a story titled "Digimon Frontier: Spirits of Evolution!" Exclamation mark included because I was a total child and I liked exclamation marks. Back in those days, the story took place after the events of 02, I never got far enough to introduce Kari's spirit (and I don't think I ever even designed one), my characterization of Daisuke was completely off point, and... it was really bad. Like, really, really bad. You do not want to know how bad it really was.
Last summer, I decided to go back and rewrite it. And make it. Y'know. Good. Completely from scratch, I rewrote the entire backstory, reworked the conflict, designed six new spirits (painstakingly, because I'm awful at drawing), and published two brand new, probably-longer-than-they-had-to-be episodes. To this day, DFSoE is the most popular story I've ever written.
It's since been on hiatus due to a bad writer's block, but I'm planning to go ahead and try writing the third episode soon. However, I'd like to hear some more feedback on it. What readers would like to see from the story to come, what's enjoyable in what's already there, things that could be improved on, perhaps some speculation. This story is near and dear to my heart, and I just really want it to be as good as I can get it.
Also, just a heads up, I grew up with the English dub, so the story primarily uses the English terminology. I did replace "Armor Digiegg" with "Digimental", though.
So, if you're interested, go ahead and give it a look! I'd love to hear what you think.
