NOTE: Before we begin, I would like to say that this is the first fanfic I will be making. This is an original story based on the Digimon anime although I put some elements of the actual anime into it. The human characters are original, although their personalities are loosely based on actual Digimon characters. This series will be divided into "episodes" as chapters. Ok, now hope you enjoy reading the fanfic. Also, description and interesting words are never my specialty, especially since this will be my first fic. You might want to check my forums on my account in case you want some info I may have missed from the first chapter.
Digimon Burst Dimensions
Friday, July 2, 2010. Layton, Utah... (11:00AM)
John is asleep, but he is rolling in his bed. He is having a nightmare of about creatures invading Earth and destroying lands and countries. The creatures are led by something surrounded by a dark aura who chases John to an alley. When he was cornered in the alley, he heard a voice, a strange voice, one that he never knew before. John cannot hear the voice clearly, but after it spoke, everything including the creatures vanished into thin air. John woke up with a start.
"Oh, it was just a dream, I wonder who those creatures are? Anyways, I guess it's back to my regular life"
John got out of his bed, realizing he overslept. John entered the bathroom and does his daily routine of showering and brushing his teeth. He got dressed and put on a ponytail. John was planning to stay at his friend's house later tonight and they can go gaming at Sunday. Just as John was washing his hands, his cellphone's ring tone goes off and he checks his text message. It was his friend who messaged him that gaming will be canceled due to the Fourth of July being a holiday and that he wants some rest.
"Lame, what am I gonna do now for Sunday?"
John wanted some food, he got some softdrinks, and a piece of corn.
7 Hours Later...
John is thinking about his dream, about all those creatures. He couldn't get those things out of his mind. He decides to get some fresh air and go outside. The night breeze is cool, as John wandered around into a lake. The lake is pretty deep. John is still wandering around with his cellphone, when a strong breeze knocked his cellphone away into the lake. Before it fell, John is off his feet trying to save it. It is waterproof, so there will be no problem with it getting wet, but John still wanted to get it. John finds himself in the lake with his phone safely in his hands. Suddenly, the waters start moving weirdly. Out of nowhere, the lake creates a big wave, which swallowed John. As the wave goes, John is nowhere to be found.
At the same day in Las Vegas, Nevada... (4:00PM)
A thin tennager of 15 years old with brown hair and bangs is playing some cards with people. He plays the winning card and wins. A nearby man sees him.
"Hey, shouldn't you be going to class or what?"
"Sorry, got suspended. Sometimes, those teachers can be a real pain." answered the boy. "Oh, by the way, got to go. The name is Zel, don't forget it. I rarely come here to play though."
Zel walks in the streets of Las Vegas. The place isn't as good as it is when nighttime comes. Zel checks the time and find much time left. He decides to visit a coffee shop to get some internet time. Zel notices that the internet connection is going slower than usual.
"Aw, come on, what's causing this? This is lame. Anyways, at least they still got decent connections for now. Not sure if this going to get worse."
Zel leaves the coffee shop after buying drinks. He noticed that he spent a lot of time with his laptop, as it is now 6PM. He walks to his home, passing by a dark alley with many graffiti. In the wall he sees something written. His laptop starts acting weird with multiple symbols appearing on and off it. A portal appears in front of him.
"This is...a Digital Gate? I never knew things like this existed. I thought these are mere fiction."
Zel left a text message to the people at home that he will be coming home late tonight. Zel enters the gate with his laptop...
In a luxurious school in Vegas... (3:45PM)
The teacher is discussing a lesson. She stops though and reminds the class.
"One of you is going to a field trip tomorrow. Please stand up, the one leaving today"
From one corner, a girl stood up. She is 14 years old with long pink hair. She is very pretty, and quite popular in school, although with a bad reputation. As she got up, some whispering begins at the classroom. A student begins...
"Well, I don't mind her leaving. She is just so annoying."
The student suddenly got a water jug thrown at him by the girl. The teacher is alarmed at this.
"Riana! What did you do that for?"
"Well, if I don't do anything, then it would be as good as accepting that I am a worthless, annoying student in this room." Riana answers back.
"Even so, Riana, what you did was wrong..." her teacher replied.
The bell rang for dismissal. Everyone left, including Riana, who is in quite a bad mood.
An Hour Later...
Riana is back at home. Her aunt is done cooking. She calls for Riana, who is upstairs fixing her things.
"Time to eat, you need to be at the airport by 5:45PM."
"I don't want to eat." answered Riana, who still hasn't gotten over from the events earlier at school.
"Don't let me come up there." her aunt said sternly. "If you don't go down, you won't have anything to eat. Pack your things later."
"Fine..." Riana answered, as she went down.
"I don't mind leaving school. I have been through more than 6 already. But...I wish tomorrow I can do something that I never did before. Yes, something new. I want to have friends, not too playful, not too serious, not too shabby, not too smart, not too lovable, just friendly and kind..."
Riana finished packing the stuff and went to the airport with her aunt. They just made it, and it is 5:30PM. Riana boarded the plane, got to her seat on the very back of the plane, and fell asleep the moment she entered. An hour later, she woke up due to some weird feelings. Something went wrong with the plane and they landed on water! Riana got out, only to find all rafts full. Luckily, she was able to find a final one empty. She boarded it, and got a floating log from the plane. She tried rowing her way to land, but then the waters become wilder. Suddenly, Riana's raft was turned upside down, but as she goes under the water, a light flashes from there, and she was gone.
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada...(5:30PM)
Joseph "Joey" Wayne is surfing the internet when he decides to go downstairs for a while. Joey looks pretty young for his age, as he is 16 years old. Joey has medium length hair that goes down to his neck. Joey returns to his computer after checking on the things downstairs and he notices that the computer is making weird noises. Joey tries fixing it, but the computer went even more haywire. Suddenly, bright light engulfed the room, making him disappear.
San Francisco, California...(4:00PM)
School is over, and a boy started chatting with his friends on his way home. They are talking about Digimon games. One boy is especially enthusiastic about it. His name is Sena Matthews. Sena is 7 years old. He continues talking with his friends until it is time to go home. Sena stayed up quite late, around 5:00PM. Sena runs toward home excited after he got good grades in his report card. He arrived home. Before dinner, he is playing with his console games hooked to the TV. The TV then started to talk. Sena freaks out as a bright light fills the room and makes him disappear.
Somewhere else in San Francisco...(5:15PM)
A small girl just woke up in her room. She didn't go to school now because she doesn't feel well. She seems to be okay now. Her grandparents, who she is living with, just left. The girl has hair that reaches her neck. She is a typical 7 year old girl in stature. She has an innocent looking face. Her name is Ayu Takashi. Ayu checks her e-mails. She finds one interesting. After reading it, she saw an option of Yes and No. Ayu wanted to click no, but her heart is telling her to click yes. She did so, and she feels herself getting sucked into the computer. In a few seconds, Ayu was gone from her room.
New York City...(5:50PM)
In a school, everyone went home already. One boy sat quietly in the library doing his homework. The name written is Tsuna Sadawa. Tsuna is 13 years old, and he is the typical workaholic type of student. He has short black hair and wears a black jacket.
"There is no peace and quiet at my home...*sigh* that's why I must do my homework here."
Tsuna threw his pen after it stopped working.
"How am I gonna finish this homework when even my pen wouldn't work?"
Tsuna then noticed a bag someone left some time ago. He decided to inspect it and found out it is a laptop. Strangely enough, when he flipped the laptop screen up, the computer is running fine. He tried shutting it down but it wouldn't shut down. Tsuna then saw something at the bottom of the screen which looked like a help button. Tsuna clicked it, and he was sucked into a blinding light.
Somewhere else in New York at around the same time...
A girl, around 15 is sitting in her room. Her name is Tea. She is quite tall and has long brown hair with two toxic green streaks of hair, one behind each ear. Her face is looking irritated. Her little sister is knocking the door. Tea rolled her eyes in annoyance and unlocked the door.
"What do you want?" Tea asked
"I...I just want to play with you." her sister answered
"Well, I don't, so just buzz off!" Tea shouted
Her sister starts to get teary eyes.
"Why do you have to be so mean...I hate you!" shouts her sister back as she runs down.
"Whatever." Tea thought to herself.
Tea grabbed her messenger bag and got her sneakers with a plan to cool off outside. Tea checked the computer to shut it down, but something is going wrong with the screen. Tea tries clicking stuff, then a bright light filled up the room, and Tea was gone.
At the middle of Continent of COMP, a place in the Digital World.
After what seemed like hours, John woke up in an island. He noticed he was lying in a sandy beach. He saw a white creature in front of him. He thought he was dreaming and ignored the white creature. The white creature then grabbed a coconut and hit him in the head.
"What the heck! That hurt a lot man, what did you hit me with?" shouted John in surprise
"My name's Gomamon, and I'm a Digimon, you insensitive human, and this is Shallow Reef."
John smiled at it.
"Yeah, I was right, everyone is. There are really Digimon! So, where's my Royal Knight Partner? Where's Ulforce? I can't belive this is happening!" John started to laugh here. Gomamon though isn't happy about it.
"Why God, why did you pit me with a nutcase of a partner?" asked Gomamon. He hit John with his claws. "Alright, alright, John, you and I are PARTNERS, there's no armor clad Royal Knight for you. You got me and I got you. Now you wanna find shelter or you wanna talk about your silly fantasies?"
"Yeah, ok, ok,as long as you do not hit me again. That really hurt." said John with a reddish face after being scratched. "But seriously, I cannot swim, how can we get off this island, well, for you it's no problem, but for me..."
"Well, today is a good day to learn." Gomamon pushes John to the water, but instead of sinking, he realizes that he has a lot of rainbow colored fishes underneath him. "And you act like some Digimon expert...You're such a loser, nevertheless, you are my loser."
Somewhere near shallow reef...
Zel steps out of the Digital Gate to find himself in a place full of trees. He looked around and saw many little Digimon living all around him. He knew in an instant that this is the Digital World. Zel stars scratching his head and asking himself where to go. Then, a ladybug-like Digimon got his attention.
"Hi, Zel, I have been waiting for you, my partner, my name is..."
"Tentomon, about you being my partner, no thank you." Zel started walking off.
"Wait for me! And...how did you know my name?" Tentomon went after Zel
"I knew about you Digimon, but only in fiction. I never knew you really existed. As for us being partners, no I didn't sign up for this. Tentomon, I am only going to stay here for a while after I find a way back home."
Tentomon kept following.
"Alright, what do you really want? It's like by some luck you recognized me, and now you are acting like my shadow. Don;t you have more important things to do?" Zel didn't stop in his walk until around 5 seconds later. "Wait, you're a regular here? If so, we could work things out. You guide me in this place and I be your "partner" here, deal?"
Tentomon is really happy about Zel finally accepting him.
They continued walking on, with Zel asking some things regarding Shallow Reef and the Digital World. He found out that the Digimon are fighting Shadramon, and that Shadramon is lcoated near Raptor Valley. Zel found Raptor Valley's location on his laptop and they moved north, to where Raptor Valley is. Along the way, they saw a girl and Commandramon.
"People? Who are you?" asked Zel. "I never thought there would be other Digidestined here. Now, with the two of us, we could defeat Shadramon at Raptor Valley and get home."
The girl looked with an emotionless face at Zel. She answered with a straight face.
"I'm Tea, whoever you are. So if these Digidestined, whom you believe we are, can defeat that whoever you said, we can all go home. Well, good thing."
Commandramon interrupted, "But there's only two of you. There are eight total chosen children."
Zel looks around wondering, when he sees someone at shore on the other side of Shallow Reef. Zel figures out he is another Digidestined. Then, in front of them, a guy with Gotsumon came walking. Gotsumon noticed Commandramon. They know each other.
"Commandramon, I found my partner." Gotsumon said to Commandramon
Joey talks to Tea though.
"A dinosaur soldier, I have never seen those before."
"I never did before too." Tea answered.
At the other side...
"So, an armor level Digimon that is causing ugly stuff to happen in this continent and you want me to be leader of eight people? Are you serious? I can barely remember taking my medicine let alone lead a team into victory. Besides, I have no digivice and have a lot of medical conditions." John said as he was talking to Gomamon, who told him about Shadramon.
"Well, you know what, you may be an idiot at times, but you have a heart of a true hero. Trust me, you will be staying here in the Digital World and you can count on me to protect you. Wait, I see some Digimon, and their partners over the other side." Gomamon responded.
"Well, I guess if Gomamon believes me, I could wait to see who the team of Digidestined are." thought John.
"Alright, my fishes, I want you to tell them to expect John real soon. Please pick everyone up." Gomamon said to his fishes.
Back to the side of Zel, Tea, and Joey
Zel is pretty surprised now.
"Whoa, looks like we got some crowd here. How about we cross to the other side. We could actually walk around this place to get there, although it's gonna take time."
The fishes arrive and form a raft.
"Just in time, let's get in."
Zel got on the raft with Tentomon. Zel notices a group of people. Three people that seem pretty acquainted with each other already.
"Thats, one, two...seven! Seven of us. Tentomon, could you call them here?"
Tentomon flew towards the three people.
"The three of you, we noticed you are three special people. Please come to the other side, to that guy on water. We have surprises, and someone you might like to meet."
The three of them followed Tentomon and met up with Zel and everyone. The raft begins to move towards the other side of the Shallow Reef.
Back at John's side...
"Wow, a Tentomon, if he can become a GranKuwagamon, that will be so awesome!" said John to himself.
"Ahem, are we eyeing other Digimon now, John? I thought we already went through this. I am the only Digimon for you! Now, can we continue with...SAVING THE CONTINENT?" said an irritated Gomamon.
"Maybe you're right. You might be the only thing I need." John answered.
From behind them, a girl with Lalamon came out of the woods. It is Riana, and her partner is Lalamon. John noticed her too.
"I don't know how I am going to act here...Gomamon..." John said softly to himself.
In a flash, Gomamon was hurled right into Riana. Riana is shocked at Gomamon hitting her.
"Eek! Gross!" Riana hurled Gomamon back at John
"Is this dodgeball?" asked Lalamon.
"I'm not a dodgeball!" Gomamon yelled at Lalamon and Riana. "And what do you mean gross, you don't have minty breath yourself."
"Oh, I'm very sorry, miss. I thought you were a Digimon or what. Please forgive me, so are you one of the Digidestined? Name's John Radl, what's yours?" asked John
"Riana Hino, no one asked you to tell your name, but I forgive you." answered Riana
Lalamon thought to herself. "Here she goes again with that bratty attitude. An hour of spending with her and I am getting tired from her attitude."
The raft comes to the other side. Tea and Commandramon immediately went to the sides. Patamon sat on Sena's head, as he went down the raft.
"Eight. We are all here" Sena said
"Well then." said Patamon.
"I want to go home!" said Sena
"You can't, we need your help," answered Patamon.
"Well then, my name is Sena and nice to meet you all."
Ayu and Salamon stood by Sena.
"I'm Ayu, nice to meet you too. I feel like everyone is older than me and Sena. We should get home now, I think grandma will be mad at me when I get home late."
"Don't worry, things are a bit different here at the Digital World. Especially the flow of time. But maybe you won't understand yet." said Salamon.
Tsuna stood by Bearmon.
"So we have two kids and a bunch of older people." Tsuna mentioned.
"So what, they have Patamon and Salamon," assured Bearmon.
"I need to go too, I have a lot of homework and presentations," commented Tsuna.
"You can't go till we win." Bearmon said.
"I didn't sign up for this!" complained Tsuna "You have everyone, why do you need me?"
John looks at everyone.
"Let me get this straight, you are all Digidestined? Ok, let me answer questions one at a time. I am not very good in multitasking even though I say I am."
Gomamon looks at Commandramon.
"That Commandork, he knows he can just get to here right?"
Gomamon lies down and makes a sand angel thinking who will get their first digivolution.
Zel took this time to speak.
"Now, technically we have everyone here. Let's make camp for now, we need rest."
An hour later, after a not-so-smooth setting up of camp...
"Hmmm, something is lacking. Hey, Gomamon-guy, could you get some wood from the forest before it gets dark?" Zel ordered John.
"You know, I have a name, and it's John. Why don't you do it yourself? No one appointed you leader. Nevermind, I will go." John walked off with Gomamon.
"I wanna leave too. Commandramon is getting annoying staying away from everyone." said Gomamon as he follows John.
"What's with him?" asked Zel, who started doing something on his laptop away from everyone. He was actually looking for the way to Raptor Valley. Tentomon flies to everyone.
"Sorry for him. He's actually a nice guy when you get to know him well." Tentomon told everyone.
In the woods...
"That guy is so annoying, it's like I wanna punch him in the face." said John irritatingly after getting 8 pieces of wood. He noticed something behind the leaves. "Hey, a Garurumon, maybe it can help us." He ran towards the Garurumon and as he approaches it, it got up.
"Um, that's not a Garurumon, and even if it is, please remember the saying 'Let sleeping dogs lie'," said Gomamon.
The Digimon turns out to be Gururumon, who is pretty upset about John waking him up. It swiped at John, who uses a log to block it. John and Gomamon then hurried to camp. They ran for their lives, with Gururumon at their back. They burst through the bushes into camp. Zel saw them.
"Back so soon? Wait, that's..." Zel then turned nervous. John tried to explain.
"You led a Gururumon here?" Zel is starting to raise his voice. Tentomon arrives at the scene.
"Gururumon is basically Garurumon with dark energies. Let's do it even though he is a champion level, one level higher than us." said Tentomon.
Tentomon shoots Super Shocker at Gururumon and made it recoil a bit.
John stopped running and slid beside Riana and Lalamon, who hurried to the spot after hearing the commotion.
"Sorrry everyone, I thought we could get help. Looks like I am wrong. Gomamon, let's fight back. Attack with Marching Fishes." ordered John.
Gomamon uses Marching Fishes on Gururumon, which doesn't seem to do much. Gururumon used Chaso Fire to knock Tentomon, Gomamon, and Lalamon. Gururumon goes after Tea, who is some meters away.
"What are you waiting for?" Riana asked Lalamon.
Without a word, Lalamon fires Seed Shot at Gururumon. It managed to get Gururumon's attention but not do too mcuh damage.
"Wow, the seeds exploded, it's so cool!" said Riana in excitement. "Too bad it didn't do much."
"What! Look, I made that shot there." said Lalamon
"What's with that attitude?" complained Riana.
"You started it." answered Lalamon.
Gururumon attempts to leap at Tea, who just noticed Gururumon. Joey managed to save her though. Gururumon then sets his sight on Ayu. This time, it is Tea who pushed Ayu out of the way but got a cut on her arm in the process. Commandramon rushes to Tea in order to protect her. Tsuna comes rushing to the scene with Bearmon.
"Patamon!" called Sena.
"Got it." said Patamon with a nod.
"Let's join too." said Ayu to Salamon.
Both Digimon shot Boom Bubble and Puppy Howling, respectively, although it didn't harm Gururumon. Gururumon flings Salamon to a tree.
"Sorry I didn't help much," apologized Salamon
"No, you were awesome." answered Ayu.
Tsuna orders Bearmon to attack Gururumon in close range, but Gururumon is too strong and sends Bearmon flying. Tsuna suggested everyone attack together. Gururumon goes after Riana, but John distracts Gururumon. John gets hit by Gururumon and gets a wound on his midsection. Every Digimon attacks Gururumon, finishing with Gomamon's sharp edge attack.
"He should be going down right around now..." thought Zel.
Gururumon seemed not affected by all the attacks, but he started falling down. Gururumon then disappeared into eight lights that turned into the digivices. One went beside John, who is lying down in pain.
"Digi...vice..." said John as he passed out.
Everyone gets their digivice. Riana runs at John.
"I need to help now..." said Riana, with a feeling of guilt.
"It's ok, let's treat him" answered Lalamon.
As they did their bandaging and treatment, Zel and Tentomon gets beside them.
"Not too much of a problem, he just passed out. One problem is that he would drag our journey slowly if this condition persists. Things looked harder than I thought. At first, I thought Shadramon will not be too much of a problem, but it seems like I was wrong. We had trouble here, who knows what's gonna happen when we fight Shadramon. I don't like being leader, but I say we rest here tonight." said Zel.
"Right, everyone is tired. We tried our best, sorry if that's all we can do." said Tentomon.
Zel is quiet. He is thinking.
"We seriously need to find a way to digivolve..."
Everyone got to their spot and set up campfire. They got some food from Tsuna, and the team decides to rest for tonight.
To be continued...
