Author has written 39 stories for Digimon, and Bible.
For those of you who already know me, I don’t need an introduction. For those who are newcomers… well, I’m Crazyeight. Probably all you need to know really. Not too inclined to go around giving away information about myself to complete and total strangers until I’ve gotten to know you better. Anyway, as I’m sure that you’ve guessed, I’m a fan of the TV show, Digimon, particularly season three, which I felt had the most realistic feel to its storyline and characters (though Adventure and 02 were also pretty good. Frontier sadly wasn’t all that impressive in my mind, but it had some okay parts to it. The battles with the Royal Knights for instance was my favorite story arc of that season), and as you may have guessed by looking at my story summaries (or a previous edition of my profile) I’m a Rukato fan (Rika x Takato), which is really the only pairing that I’ve really cared about, though Jurato (Jeri x Takato) and Ryuki (Ryo x Rika) scenes find their way in as well.
(And why not? Keeps things interesting :P)
Overall, I’ve got no problem with pairings, and refuse to bash them unless it’s done in parody, in which case even my own preferences will be subject to the same treatment (as evidenced in my ‘Fourth Wall’ series, which is a multi-season crossover set in the world of fan fiction), so rest assured that in my stories all characters and views will be treated with as much respect that is possible. Read, review, or just fire a PM at me if you just want to talk or ask me about a story idea. And if you want me to beta read your work, I'll do that, and you can expect me to give constructive criticism and tips, though I may not be the right candidate for the job.
Anyway, hope that you enjoy my work. Later.

Anonymous: Haha! It sure surprised me too when I noticed it. Given the subject matter I would have thought this site would have steered clear of that sort of thing. The characters were having a legitimate conversation with the intent of getting drunk at the end. Thanks for the review.

Guest (#2): Glad you like the story so far. Thanks for the review.
Guest: Not sure how Mie buying Takato's poor excuse counts as a serious error. I'll keep it in mind and do some editing later to reflect more realism (though I don't think I ever claimed to be 100 percent on the side of realism. Semantics aside, if that were the case I wouldn't be writing this story), but I've known adults who bought some pretty obvious lies, either because they were that oblivious, had a lot on their mind, or didn't want to deal with what the truth really was.
I am pretty familiar with the term 'overpowered' (particularly the phrase 'power creep' which shows up a great deal in regular comic books). So far I haven't really written anything that reflects overpowered except for what's already established in fanfiction canon, which this story doesn't directly draw from.
There's confusion, and then there's mystery, though I think you're taking Ryo's canon backstory and interpreting it a little too literally in this case. He hasn't shown that he rivals the Avengers power wise, or that he's a time traveler. Rapid healing and smashing robots is pretty much par the course for most super powered individuals even in Marvel comics, starting from the basic hero and ending at Wolverine's ludicrous speed. I should point out that the Guardian Spheres had figured out his F.S. Field and were preparing countermeasures. We saw that his 'cloak' was easily penetrated after its initial use and that Ryo had to think more creatively to take down the remainders. Of course, we didn't see how he would be able to handle the final combatant since Rika took it out pretty easily.
Presently I have no plans for adding new characters for a while. Teruo and Henry will be dealt with a bit later ('The next day' actually) while Riley will get a bit more screen time in the next chapter, if not the one following it. Of course I can't go into detail about why the world has an empire. That would take way more exposition then a story should have.
Not sure what you mean by 'how do I prepare files'. Eh?
If possible, I'd like to talk to you some more outside of the review columns. I like that you're really poking at my work and I think that more regular conversation would help keep me on my toes. :) As your account doesn't work, my email should be available on my profile.
Thanks for the review.

Guest: The changing out of the characters I had for the original story with digimon characters was done to ease my transition into creating original works. Characters are a bit of a problem for me it seems and what I had originally just wasn't inspiring me to write about them and weave the story line around them. I needed to twist things around in my mind to get things to work and the result was what you see here: a bit more streamlined and better connections between the plot and characters. I'll keep in mind what you said about the thought lines and message lines so I'll need to go back and edit at some point. Thanks for the review.

Guest: Glad you like the opening chapter to this latest piece, and I hope that the next one lives up to that standard. Thanks for the review.
I haven't updated in a while.
I've been a bit busy lately, and more and more I find that my interest in fanfiction isn't what it used to be. I've been wanting to get into more original material, and publish a book, and I find that I haven't been able to do that as well while my attention is split. I'm sorry to say that my updates for fanfiction are going to be much slower in coming as I change my gears over to fictionpress.com. I'll still be available for contact through the PM system and for beta reading, and I'll do an update for my work (or write a oneshot) as they come to me, but my priorities are changing. For those who are interested, check out my work on fictionpress.com via my homepage link. As for the rest, I hope to see you all again when I next update or whenever you feel the need to chat. See you around. :)
Some rules of the trade that I tend to follow:
1.) No character bashing! Never been a huge fan of 'em unless it's in good humor or a very good reason is provided for it.
2.) Observing the rules of proper grammar. Okay, this one I'm a hypocrite at (as I'm sure that everyone else, or at least a large majority is). I bend the rules and occasionally break them (for that matter, I don't have them 100 percent memorized either), but I still believe that the work must sound good and flow good.
3.) Traditional bad guys don't always cut it. I like originality in bad guys. I especially like the guidelines for villains that the author Black provides and I have them set as my own personal gospel and guide through the world of fanfic writing.
4.) Experiment! It helps to break the traditional molds and take a fresh view of things. All the usual cookie cutter formats can be suffocating for the imagination.
5.) Self insertion. This one I tend to have a bone to pick with. When I first began to take up writing as a hobby, my dad gave me some advice to avoid this so as to break me from holding up what he called 'an idealized image of yourself'. I still think that he's right about this, but I am flexible enough to know that this can work if the writer's good enough. I myself avoid self-insertion though I have based my characters on aspects of my personality and people that I've known while putting in enough differences to seperate myself from them.
If I come up with more I'll be sure to post them, but I don't think too many people want to hear me talk about my own writing preferences. They just come here to read my work.
I own the characters Ryan, Chris, Caramon, Richoemon, Jane, Munnimon, Noriko, Lumemon, and William that are featured in my stories. I'd like to say that I own Gaomon to but sadly he's a canon character so I have no control over that. If you want to use them, E-mail me and I'll let you know if you can or not.
Any other questions, e-mail me.
For anyone who's interested in original work, I have begun working on branching out into that area. Hope that you enjoy. :)
