|Reviews for Zero 2: A Revision|
| Aklaino2k7 chapter 60 . 11/20/2011
Well, I finished this story almost a week ago. I thought it was pretty good, definitely better than the original season in many ways. I tried watching 02 a ways back, but it couldn't maintain my intrest. I have to say that it took me a while to get into this, but it was well worth it.
Now, I had pretty mixed emotions about it in the beginning. It was pretty similar to the original season except darker. Though, the part with Ken decieving the digidestined into believing him as an ally was pretty fun. And then Shaun showed up. My initial reactions were that he was basically a Ryo stand-in and then I thought of him as a complete Gary Stu once he showed that he could reach Mega. That was a little ridiculous. I thought the balance was completely thrown off. However, it got better when you used him to show how far the emperor would go (nuking a city just to get rid of your most powerful rival? Sounds like a good idea to me!) Also, unlike some of your reviewers, I actually liked Chapter 18. Alienmon was a hoot. Plus, turning that stupid moral of the original on its head about lying was as good idea as any, not implemented in any other rewrite that I've read.
Then the empire arc ended. After that, things kept getting better and better as you deconstructed the original (and with a time travel twist!) as well as deconstructing Gary Stu's backstory up to that point, after which I didn't see him as a Stu anymore. The revelation about his familial relations was unexpected and great. I loved the build-up. Not to mention how you gave everyone crests (though I would have had had Stingmon become JewelBeemon but that was just me. Not sure if that digimon existed back then. Also, if written today, would you have had GeoGreymon, RizeGreymon and VictoryGreymon as the line for Shaun's partner? I know I would). Then to top it off with Jogresses (DNA Digivolutions). Also, giving the old team their crest powers back instead of writing them out of the story like the original was great, too.
Darkheart was quite the unexpected character. Good job giving Daisuke more development than in the original. Also, I liked your build-up to Ken and Yolei's relationship. Shaun's final hurrah was also great. Gotta feel sorry for the guy.
Too bad you didn't write everything you were planning for after this. It would have been interesting to see the Dark Ocean arc finally get resolved. Oh well, I guess I can't have everything. It's still good and better than that plot-hole fest that was the original, though I thought BelialMyotismon's final fate was a little extreme (pardon me, I don't believe in hellfire. I believe the wicked are just destroyed, plain and simple, with nothing left and that the Lake of Fire is symbolic of that destruction. Of course, we're not here to talk religion anyway, so let's drop it there). Then again, my opinion, your fic. You do what you want with it. Hehe.
Anyway, good job on the story and thanks for that dedication. I mean, a year and a half to write that many words! True, things were a bit shaky in the beginning, but it got pretty epic towards the end. Gotta feel sorry for all the dead people, including Daisuke and Jun's parents.

Oh Shaun... :(
I've never liked a OC so much!
Anyways, this should be the best ending for him.
Those he loved in HIS time were all gone if I get it correctly...
Oh I really wanna know what's happened during the Past Journey! Esp what's happened to Elizabeth!
Hope that you will update soon!

[In the sky above File Island, Shaun stared down in absolute shock.
When he had neared the island, shock had immediately set in once he noticed Infinity Mountain was gone. As he neared, he became even more astonished at the sight of the battle-scarred fields and forests.
Finally, the greatest shock of all came when he saw SkullSatamon. WHAT? SKULLSATAMON? BUT HE'S DEMON'S SERVANT! WHAT'S HE DOING HERE?
As he watched the fighters near SkullSatamon...he paled as SkullSatamon leapt over them and roared toward the nearest targets: Tai and Sora.
Shaun's eyes widened. If they died...everything he had done...everything he had sacrificed...everything he had suffered...ALL of it would be for nothing.
Rage. Anger. Fury.
He would NOT let it all go to waste.
And thus, Shaun charged, yelling all the way down.
Everyone paused, even SkullSatamon; they looked up at the voice and saw a blue figure charging downward.
Only TK got a glimpse of the figure's face. Wait...THAT'S SHAUN! HE'S ALIVE!
SkullSatamon paled as the enraged being roared, "LEAVE MY MOTHER AND FATHER ALONE!"
What a twist! Uh...does that mean Shaun is from the future?
Wow, that's kinda weird and cool at the same time. o_o;;

[And then...he uncrossed his arms, letting his glaring green eyes stare out at Piedmon and Grandkuwagamon. Finally, a deafening roar escaped his mouth as the transformation ended.
Suddenly, Piedmon felt very afraid.]
Wow, what a way to end the chapter...

[It was him...WEARING a human-sized version of Sonocomon's armor.
Shaun looked at his own face, staring at his own reflection...and he finally realized why he was so clumsy; he hadn't realized a load of extra weight had been put on him. His green eyes looked on in shock.
For some inexplicable reason, he was wearing the Armor of Wisdom.
Then, Shaun screamed out of sheer shock and confusion! "AAAH! I LOOK LIKE SONCOMON!"]
XD What a twist~
Uh...does that mean he's going to be fast too? :x

["Arukenimon is an Ultimate Digimon with a unique ability...her hairs can give life to Control Spires. 1 Spire makes a Champion. 10 Spires make an Ultimate. And 100 make a Mega...and this is her, without a doubt."]
Wait, so does that mean 1000 Control Spires makes an Ultimate?
How many Control Spires were there again? xD

[Davis choked out, "Man…what are we going to do about that thing once we reach the surface?"
"Don't worry!" answered Submarimon. "Just look behind you!"
They all did.
And they saw a tremendous figure advance upon Alienmon.
Aware that it was being followed, Alienmon tilted its head and roared at the newcomer…
The newcomer raised its tremendous jaws…
…and ate Alienmon. The newcomer in question was Whamon, the giant brown and blue whale Digimon. Whamon chewed a few times and swallowed, seemingly oblivious to the acidic blood. Apparently, it felt like nothing more than hot sauce to him. "Mmm…tangy! Thanks for the meal kids!" With that, Whamon swam off.
Shaun couldn't believe the irony…Alienmon – a mighty Digimon that ate Ogremon and countless others out of the prisoner blocks – had been eaten itself.]
Whamon to the rescue~
I love the different twists and how it changes from the story line...
So much death though. O_o
Terminator and Alien? Scary.

[The Digidestined were now near the school.
The Emperor was on his way to Sector 10-110-OMICRON.
Both parties were after the same objective.
Izzy looked around the food court for everyone. They weren't there.
"Huh? Where'd everyone go?"]
Oops. They left Izzy behind xD

[Davis couldn't help but slightly glower at TK. Darn it! He knows another one of Kari's friends! For Davis, the situation wasn't good. For everyone who's reading this, they should be shaking their heads in worry for the boy (A/N: shameless attempt at reader/writer interaction while IC.).]
Aw...poor guy xD
We know what you don't~
Anyway, I like this version a lot more.

I just spend the last 2 weeks reading 21 chapters of
Your story and I gotta say I love it so much! The changes you made were so much better and it puts the original story to shame. I love Shaun, there's something about him that makes me want to know more about him. He's a great O.C character and I can't wait to find out what he's hiding and who he really is. Of course i have some suspicions bit don't want to spoil it in case there are news readers. Well anyways I'm going to continue reading this.

3 chapter in and I’m hooked. It's different enough to be interesting, but still have the 02 feel. One thing I’m confused about is Cody's crest. Was it already knowledge, or did you change it?
Yolei is mean! I thought see was mean on the show, and she's mean now!
| Caveat Lector 52 chapter 1 . 6/4/2010
I haven't seen digimon 02 in a long time, but from what I remember I agree: it could've been better.
I like having Davis as Kari's best friend and afraid of being replaced by TK. It makes more since than him just being some classmate who happens to have a crush on her.
A great beginning and I’m looking forward to reading more!
