Author has written 19 stories for Digimon.

Hi, I'm known as either jippy or kandi. Both names are derived from my actual first and middle names. You can call me either, I don't mind which.

I have a Tumblr that is basically my Sorato fansite with analyses, translations, etc.: jippy-kandi.tumblr.com

Noteworthy* Digimon creator speaks about Sorato and Taiora: behind the scenes of Digimon Adventure

And* Understanding Sorato: what the Digimon creators and writers were doing

Ah, heck, just go here* jippy-kandi.tumblr.com/sorato

I like Digimon. Well, a particular character in Digimon: Yamato Ishida.

The only Digimon coupling I support is Sorato. Best canon relationship ever. And if you don't "get" them, you're missing out on an awesome relationship. :)

I also like Taito/Yamachi (I have over 100 doujinshi of this pairing *cough*). I don't actually "ship" them, though - because, in my opinion, they're unrealistic and wouldn't actually work. I also find Takari deathly boring, and Taiora . . . well . . . honestly? The Taiora "romance" was exaggerated in the English dub. Taichi and Sora are best friends. And that's a lovely friendship that never would have worked out romantically - it would've been an absolute disaster if they were to ever date (as they were constantly fighting even when they weren't dating!). But I digress.

As is obvious, Yamato is my favourite character. My second favourite, though a distant distant distant second, is probably Taichi. I'm a fan of Sora, too. And the rest of the 01 cast. But I half like/dislike the entire cast of 02. Ha. Iori, Miyako, Ken and Daisuke all annoy me at times . . . as do Hikari and Takeru. Hmm.

I also like the family dynamics of Yamato and his parents. So, basically . . . I am a fan of Yamato/Sora romance (this includes friendship), Yamato/Taichi friendship, Hiroaki/Yamato father-son bonding, and Natsuko/Yamato mother-son bonding. Yay. (I'm also a fan of Taichi/Sora friendship.) I really love canon Digimon. :)

And because Yamato rocks, here's a translation of his official 01 Toei Animation profile:

"A cool boy who excels in both academics and sports. His parents divorced three years ago and he now lives with his father. He can be very serious and has a strong sense of responsibility, so is sometimes overly cautious in exploring the Digital World. Because of this, he often butts heads with the more impulsive Taichi. He's quite overprotective of his younger brother Takeru Takaishi, who lives with their mother. His talent is the harmonica."
