Brought Together in Chaos

Sequel to Brought Together in the Aftermath and Brought Together in Darkness

By ArtikGato

Disclaimer: *looks in a dictionary under the letter 'd'* Deer, dig, digger... aha! Digimon: something that ArtikGato does not own and never ever will. *pouts* Sure, rub it in! Stupid dictionary!! *tosses it out a conveniently open window* I also don't own any of the screen names of the Digidestined. If any of the screen names are yours...sorry. I tried to pick a name that fit each Digidestined, and I came up with these. And no, there is, not to my knowledge anyway, no Izumi.net. So sorry. *pulls out a mallet* Now where is that dang blasted Veemon?

Author's Notes: Hello hello!! After the success of my first two stories, Darkness and Aftermath, I'm now bringing you the third and probably last story in the Brought Together In... Trilogy, Brought Together in Chaos. This one is probably weirder than the first two combined. If you haven't read at least Aftermath, then you will be lost on a LOT of occasions in this story. Just as a fair warning, the following couples are in this story: Izzlei (Izzy X Yolei), Kenari (Ken X Kari), Sorato (Sora X Matt), Daimi (Davis X Mimi), Cody X Norieko (the dark spore girl), Joe X Jun, and  TK and Tai X made up characters. The first four (main) couples were introduced in the last two stories. Here is my warning: please no flaming. If you dislike any of these pairings or the fact that I had to make up a few characters, then don't flame the story. Also, the story will center around TK later, so TK haters or even mild dislikers, either put up with it or get out.

One last thing, this story takes place roughly one year after Malomyotismon was destroyed, give or take a week or so. Brought Together in Darkness took place a few, maybe five or six months after Malomyotismon was destroyed, and Brought Together in the Aftermath took place a week or so before this story does.

Oh, just one more thing: feel free to skip this part if you want to. It's just the prologue, all it really does is set up the party, which is next chapter. This chapter is a strange mix: you see, I wanted for a while write some sort of a fic where the story was told or set up or something by a bunch of letters sent back and forth or something. I also tried writing one of those annoying 'Chat room' fics a while back, and I liked the screen names. So, I combined the two to set up the prologue. Read at your own risk!! and the more reviews I get, the more incentive I have to write the next chapter.

Hello everyone! Well, it's Christmas time once again, and you know what that means? Mistletoe, presents, and...a Christmas Party!! Ken is going to have it over at his house again, and we're inviting all of you guys. Bring two things: presents, and a date. And that means ALL of you have to bring a date. Ok, you don't really have to bring presents. But come on, it's Christmas time! Anyway, this may be the last year all of us Digidestined get to be together at Christmas, with everyone going off to college at all four corners of the Earth soon. So, let's just say that skipping the party is NOT an option. Well, with all warnings aside, Merry Christmas everybody!! See you on the 23rd at around 11 AM!! (this will be an all day party).

Thanks for the invitation, Kari. And tell Ken thanks for me too. I'll definetely be there, with Yolei of course. I would hate to have to suffer your wrath. =P Anyway, is there anything you need help with? I can bring food or help with decorations or something.

HI! Wow, I can't believe that it's almost Christmas time again, can you?? Anyway, thank you for the invitation, although I knew that I'd be invited anyway. =) I'll be there, you can bet. And I'll bring Izzy even if I have to drag him out of the house and away from that computer. ^_~ Anyhow, do you and Ken need help with anything? I can bring over my stereo and all of my CD's for some music, if you want. And my uncle that lives in Osaka has a few trees with mistletoe growing in them, so I can bring that, too. ^_^ Well, I have to go, my older brother is nagging at me to let him get on the computer (stupid family with only one computer for everyone in the house!! Humph!) Bye, and see you soon,

I know what your wrath is like and I'd REALLY like to avoid that. I'm bringing Sui too. But, you knew that. *yawn* Stupid Miko, waking me up at the crack of dawn!!

Wow, I totally forgot how close it was to Christmas with all the Dark Lord mess lately.  I'm definetely coming. I won't miss a Digidestined party!! And besides, I fear the consequences... Anyway, I'll bring Mimi (or will she bring me?). This is going to be so cool!! Oh, is there anything I can do to help you guys out? I could always raid the kitchen. We have a lot of ice cream and cool-whip, for some reason. Anyway, good luck with the party!

PS: Jun is bugging me about going. Do you think there is any way she could go, even if she's not a Digidestined? (I know that this is unlike me, but it's the holidays...and she threatened to throw my stereo out of the window if I didn't ask...)

Thank you for inviting me to the party. As of right now, I'm pretty sure I can come. I finished all of my homework last week, even with the Dark Lord thing going on. So, as far as I know, I'm free to come. As for bringing a date...I'm afraid that I won't be bringing a date, unless it's a blind date. My old girlfriend, Janie, dumped me about two months ago. Besides, she lives back where my college is, and I live all the way here in Odaiba. I guess I'm going to be coming solo. That's ok, right?

It's kind of hard to believe that it is almost Christmas again, huh? Just think, one year ago, we were still fighting with Daemon and Arukenimon and Mummymon. Well, enough of that. I'm going to be there, but I'm not bringing a 'date'. I'm too young to be dating, first of all. Second of all, I don't know many girls, in the first place. Sorry to dissapoint you. But, if there is anything you need help with, I'll be glad to lend a hand. I have a lot of free time now that school is out.

I'll be at the Christmas party. But, I don't know who I'll bring as a date. Maybe someone from school. Anyway, is there anything you need help with, like food and drinks or whatever? There will be a lot more people this year than there were at last year's party.

XC:::  Yolei, I need your help with Cody. He doesn't want to bring a date. Says he's 'too young for dating' or something. You know him better than I do.

Also, TK doesn't know who to bring to the party, either. Do you have any suggestions? I mean, we could always set them up with someone.

Oh, and the music and mistletoe is a really great idea!! But, don't you even think of 'borrowing' any food for the party from your parent's store. You always provided the food at the other Digidestined meetings and stuff, so this time, we'll give your parents a break. Ok? ^_^

I have a bunch of little paper umbrellas from Hawaii that we can put in drinks! ;]

I'm bringing something...special, too. Don't worry, it won't blow up or poison anyone, although it can potentially be deadly... ^_~ I'll just let you guess what it is. See you on Saturday!

Thanks everyone, since most of you volunteered to bring/do something to help us with the party. We were planning on basically getting everybody to chip in and just order pizza. What we really need are a bunch of drinks and stuff for desert. Yolei is already bringing a stereo, so everybody bring a few of your favorite CD's for music. Feel free to bring anything in the way of a drink or something sweet and desertish. ^_^ Bring movies and other stuff if you really want to, but I think we've got plenty of...entertainment already. ^_~ Well, that's all.

Hi Jun. Davis told me about how you wanted to come to the party on Saturday. Well, I think there is a way you can. Do you remember Joe? Tall, longish blue hair, glasses? Anyway, he needs a date for the party. Do you think you could do it?

I think I have a pretty good idea of what we can do about both Cody and TK not being able to find dates. First of all, do you remember Noreiko? She was one of the kids with a Dark Spore in them from last year. Anyway, I remember that Cody really seemed to like her. So, what do you think?

Two, I think I have an idea for someone we could set TK up with. There is this girl in my class, Michiru, who has a crush on him. I think TK would really like her, too. She's on the girl's basketball team at the High School. I'm afraid that's the best I could come up with.

And he's cute, anyway!! Cute guys are usually always cool! Thanks for inviting me, I guess, if that qualifies as an invite.

Well, I KNOW that Michiru will. She has a HUGE crush on TK. Kinda like the crush I used to have on Ken. You remember how I was back then? That's how Michiru is now. She is always asking me how TK is and all this junk. If we can convince TK to go to the party with her, she will come. As for Noreiko...

Noreiko might take a little skilled begging.

Good news!! Michiru said that she would definetely come tomorrow, and Noreiko... well, she said yes. But what's weird is that I got the impression that she really REALLY liked Cody, because the instant I mentioned her going as a 'date' for him, she practically screamed 'yes!'. Wouldn't that be cool if those two got together? =] Anyway, what's the situation with TK?

If it's that important to you that everyone has a date, then I'll go with Michiru to the party. I know her, all right. She's...I guess you could say she's a fangirl of mine or something. She acts around me the exact same way Jun used to act around Matt. I guess I could go out with her once, though. Who knows,I might just like it. You never know...

Speaking of Jun, I heard from Davis that she was going to party as JOE'S date. What the heck?? Is that right, or was Davis just pulling my leg?

He will soon enough. ^_^' Oh, and sorry about setting you up with a fangirl, but, hey, at least you won't be the only person there without a date. And I don't think it will be THAT bad...the worst that could happen is she'll glomp you and you'll have to drag her around all night. ^_~

That's great!! So, run it by me again, who all is going with who? It's a bit confusing. Let's see... Izzy and I are going together, you and Ken are going together, Matt and Sora are going together, and Davis and Mimi are going together, obviously. You know, it's still weird to think of Davis and Mimi as a couple. Do you know what I mean? They're like the last two people on the Earth you'd ever expect to get together. Anyway, Cody and Noreiko are going together, and TK and Michiru are going together, as far as we know. That just leaves Tai and Joe, right? Who are they going with?

Tai is going with Sui, this girl he met at school. And...ok, you'd better sit down, and get a good grip on the chair, because you're not going to believe this... Joe and JUN are going together!! Even though I set it up, I really just don't beleive it myself. And I know what you mean. It was weird for me for a couple of months to think of Matt and Sora as a couple, too, because I always expected Sora to go with my brother. They just seemed to really like eachother and then BLAM, she goes for Matt. It's really confusing, isn't it?

I've heard from some people that he's a pest too, but I know him as a kind and caring person.
