|Reviews for Better the Devil You Know|
| KyuuuChan chapter 24 . 2/24
Like I've promised in my PM: I'll read this when I have a time. Well, I read this for about 5 hours and must I say that I really enjoy it! D
I really like Sunrise scene! I don't know why but I could feel their passionate towards each other
I also like it when Kari tried to bring TK back to his apartment. You've succeeded to express her feelings and fears.
Thumbs for this story! One of the best adventure Takari that I've ever read!
I'll read the sequel soon! :)

Wow. This was awesome!
I've read the whole story in 8 days. It was just too thrilling and absorbing.
As a big fan of S01E13, I'm glad that the story is based on the whole TK/Patamon-Devimon conflict.
(I shouldn't review other chapters here, but... well, I think that it is easier to write just one review.)
In my opinion you wrote especially the rather 'dark' passages really well. It was intriguing how the whole conflict developed again. All chapters were intriguing, but in my opinion chapter 18 was a bit outstanding. Although I like to read passages that contain the 'darker side of TK', some parts were really surprising. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this chapter, especially because of the rather emotional side.
And chapter 21... Wow! This was just too intense! The cliffhanger at the end was just awesome, although I was glad that I could read chapter 22 just a minute later haha. And I also have a note to chapter 22: In my opinion you described TK's injuries and Kari's behaviour so exactly that the whole situation was almost tangible for me.
And the end... Well, although I also like tragical endings, I just have to say that this was the perfect ending. I'm a fan of 'happy ends' and I guess that this was kind of a 'happy end'.-
In general the last chapters were the perfect mix of stunning adventure elements and Takari elements. I mean... You just described how a perfect love would look like. Both try to save each other's lifes, ignoring what happen to themselves... That's really thrilling, breathtaking and... How a Takari fic can be haha.
The thoughts of the characters and the whole environment are described better than I could do in any of my stories haha.
All in all this story was just awesome. I hope you don't mind that I take this story to my favourites.

I'm glad everything turned out fine at the end. I wonder who that blond man was, though. He seems suspicious. I think he'll play a major role in the sequel... (Also, is that the same man from Tamers? The description of him seems just like him. :o)
Well, I can't wait to start the sequel! :)
| videogamenerd101 chapter 23 . 12/22/2013
I find Kari OOC here because, honestly, I don't recall any moments in the canon where she's being stubborn. She's the type of person who's very open-minded and she agrees to what the people close to her propose most of the time, and I feel like she would have gone with her mom back home, albeit reluctant. Also, I find it OOC that she just shrugged Tai and her parents off. Yes, she cares about T.K. deeply and it's such a dire situation, but her shrugging them off makes it seem like she isn't putting the feelings of the others into account and only herself and T.K. As we can tell from canon, she's one of the most selfless characters, if not the most selfless character, in the Digimon anime, so her only thinking about herself and T.K. and being so stubborn about it doesn't seem like her.
Anyway, I hope T.K. will get better and I hope the surgery goes well. :)
| videogamenerd101 chapter 22 . 12/22/2013
I think this is fine as T.
Another moving chapter… I really like how you showcased how much Kari cares for T.K. I'm also glad they finally defeated Neodevimon. :)
Although, I find it unrealistic that the paramedics took T.K. down a lift instead of the stairs. I can understand if the lift is the only means to transport T.K. down to the lobby, but shouldn't all apartments have staircases that's intended for people to take when there's an emergency? It's faster than a lift. I also find it unrealistic that the paramedics so easily agreed to use Kari's blood. I'd expect them to be much more insistent on her not using her own. Heck, I'd expect the medics to not use Kari's blood at all, actually, no matter how insistent Kari is on using her own blood.
| videogamenerd101 chapter 21 . 12/22/2013
Wow, that was intense. I wonder what'll happen with T.K. and Kari, and I also wonder what Tai, Matt, Sora, and the other Digidestined will do.
| videogamenerd101 chapter 20 . 12/21/2013
I find it somewhat OOC of Kari for her to say that one of the reasons why she wants to go with T.K. is because she just wants to (she didn't directly say that but that's pretty much what she meant) and that they live together or die together. It seems kind of selfish of her, and as we can tell from the canon, Kari is a very selfless person, so I can't really picture her saying that. And in the part where she says they either live or die together, it also seems really selfish of her because that line makes it seem like she, T.K., and their love is all that matter. I mean, all of Kari's other reasons are legitimate and logical, but that one just doesn't seem like a Kari thing to say, if you know what I mean.
Otherwise, I'm glad T.K. chose Kari in the end. It makes sense, since Agumon and Gabumon wouldn't be able to fight to their full extent if they went. :)
| videogamenerd101 chapter 19 . 12/21/2013
I'm glad T.K. was able to make up with Davis and Ken and forgive them. Lol, looks like Davis found out about T.K. and Kari's secret relationship. I have a feeling the others will find out soon. :P
| videogamenerd101 chapter 18 . 12/21/2013
I'm really, truly sorry, but God, this chapter really annoyed me. From the beginning of T.K. and Davis's fight, I was expecting everyone in the room, especially Kari, to stop T.K. and Davis before any violence could have erupted, because that's what they always did every time Tai and Matt fought back then, and that's what they did when T.K. and Davis fought that one time in the canon. I just find it really OOC of them to do nothing about it while T.K. and Davis are at each other's necks. Especially Kari. She's T.K.'s girlfriend, and as his girlfriend, she needs to keep T.K.'s sanity in check and calm him down. I'm sure she knows that just holding his arm tightly won't do anything to calm him, and the only way to get her message across is by words. The fact that she just kept holding onto him and not doing anything makes her seem like she relies on T.K. for everything—and I mean, completely everything, and she'll agree to whatever T.K. does, and that's only true most of the times. She should be aware that his anger toward Neodevimon is making him rash and reckless and impulsive, and during that fight scene with Davis, I really felt like she should've tried to stop T.K.
I'm sorry if I offended you, but I'm just trying to help you keep their characters in check.
| videogamenerd101 chapter 17 . 12/20/2013
I hope Davis will be okay. Let's see what'll happen once T.K. and Kari get there...
| videogamenerd101 chapter 16 . 12/20/2013
It still seems like T.K.'s fight with Neodevimon isn't going anywhere. I wonder how that'll eventually change. I hope Gennai will respond soon, because I think he'll have the answer all the Digidestined need. I'm glad T.K. has Kari during such a hard time for him; she really does help him relax and think about other things. :)
| videogamenerd101 chapter 15 . 12/20/2013
I'm glad T.K. was okay in the end. That last scene with T.K. and Kari was really sweet, but I think I would've felt more emotional if the writing was more showing rather than telling.
| videogamenerd101 chapter 14 . 12/18/2013
Well, looks like bringing others really isn't a great idea, since Neodevimon really was serious when he said that he'd hurt T.K.'s friends in front of him, because that's what Neodevimon did. I wonder what T.K. plans to do to defeat Neodevimon now.
| videogamenerd101 chapter 13 . 12/17/2013
I'm glad T.K.'s finally let some of them come with him, because he seriously needs the help. Anyway, can't wait for the battle next chapter!
| videogamenerd101 chapter 12 . 12/15/2013
Yay, Mimi is here! Koumi is definitely my second favorite Digimon pairing—Takari is my first—so I'm glad Mimi is here. :)
T.K.'s fight with Neodevimon really isn't going anywhere. He really does need the help of the others if he wants to defeat Neodevimon.
