Chapter I note:

          I know I've written Mimi, terribly, terribly out of character, but please stay with me! (This is my first real fanfic.) What I'm trying to show is that appearances can be deceiving. Now you my also be wondering what I am doing. I am writing this because in the 'Flower Power' episode Lillymon said to Mimi, "You're a very special girl." so I decided to take her at her word. ~. ^

          Now I have a small request for the readers, would you please send reviews, or what I call 'constructive criticism', please? I really need them. Not flames or gushing praise but honest reviews. Don't just say, 'You're a awful writer, it stinks!' tell me why it stinks. Tell me what parts are weakly written and need work so I can improve them and make the story more enjoyable. One more thing, you all know 'alpha' means the 'begining' or 'first' and 'omega' means the 'end' or 'last', right? So the title really says, 'Between the Beginning and the End'.  Thanks for your time!

Note from Chapter II:

          Well, how do you guys like it so far? I hope it's getting better. Now please let me explain something; I am NOT pairing up any of the characters, they're just children! Yamato feels this way because someone just died saving his life and he feels responsible for it, okay? Please send some C & C and thanks for reading!

Chapter III Note:

          Okay! The third chapter is done! BOOYAH! Anyways, I got the idea for her name from a wonderful book I read called 'Archangel' by Sharon Shinn. In the book the term 'angela' is the same as saying 'Lady' or 'Miss' and the term 'angelo' is the same as saying 'Lord' or 'Sir'. Also, these terms are used only when addressing an angel.

          When I called her 'Myangela', I used the word 'My' as in 'mine', so if you think about it, he was really calling her 'My Lady'.  Get it? Yes? No? Who cares!

          Be a responsible reader and send C & C.

Chapter IV note:

          Well, well, well. It seems the plot thickens. Bwa ha ha ha! Oh, and I hope the plots coming together now, plus you may be interested to know 'Kohaku' means 'amber'. Alopexusmon's name comes for the genetic name of the artic fox (Alopex lagopus) and the gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis), and he is a cross of the two, hence the name. And for those wondering, terms like 'Omegamon-touched' and 'Sweet Holy Mother Alphamon' are really strong swearwords in the Digiworld.

Chapter V note:

          Okay, I suck. I am so sorry. To tell the truth, this chapter isn't really finished, but I thought 'what the hell' and posted it anyway. So if you suddenly find that I have replaced this with a revised chapter, don't be surprised.

          Okay, you may be wondering what the heck I'm on to have written about Myotismon in this way, but one of my greatest beefs has always been the "big bad villain who was destroying everything just for the hell of it." Besides, I think Myotismon is kinda cool. *Dodges large, heavy objects lodged at head* 

          And the third thing I am going to add (most likely at the end of every chapter from now on) is an index of the Latin words I used. Yes, you heard me Latin! Bwa ha ha! With that out of my system, I will also added this note: I will not be using the terms Rookie, Champion, Egg, or In-training as used in the show. I have given them other titles that you will find in the index. The main reason I'm not going to use them is 'cause they just don't sound cool.

          Ciao,

           ~E~

          Oh, and by the way, what do you all think of Kohaku? Please tell me what you think of him, is he one of the dreaded Gary Lou's (a.k.a. Mary Sue)? Or is he simply an original character?

          The song that Kohaku sings is not mine either, sung originally by Jann Arden on her new CD, Blood Red Cherry, and is called "In your keeping".

Chapter VI note:

           A little late in coming (okay, very late in coming), but hopefully it was worth the wait. As you can see, I've expanded on several different characters in this chapter, which should give you a little more insight just as it raises more questions.

           Trust me, it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

           Anyway, moving on. You may have notice that this does not follow the arc of the series and it damned well shouldn't! I started writing this long before the bit with Myotismon had ended so I didn't know anything about the whole Dark spores and so on. This will continue to be very Alternate Universe.

            Oh and by the way, stick around for the next chapter. Hikari will start making an appearance and you will see more of Gatomon and Wizardmon (and I am going to tell you right now, he ain't dying in my story).

            Ciao,

            ~E~
