About Me


As you can quite clearly see, my pen name is Michael Rakimi (no, it bears no relation to my real name) and I am the author of "Taming the Third Lion", an AU fanfic based on the characters and, more loosely, the universe of Digimon Tamers. I am an 18-year-old male (as of November 2011 when this profile bio was last updated) living somewhere in northern England. I am (obviously) a fan of Digimon Tamers, along with Digimon Adventure/02. I haven't yet gotten around to watching Frontier (not that I plan to) thanks to the fact that I'm bogged down with a bunch of other anime at the moment. I have watched the first few episodes of Data Squad and promptly lost the will to live as soon as Marcus started punching things. As far as I'm concerned, that series does not exist (though I may have been able to get through it if Marcus had actually been a likeable character, and not annoying as hell). Other than Digimon, I enjoy the Mobile Suit: Gundam anime (particularly 00, Zeta and Wing), Code Geass, Evangelion (both the original and Rebuild) and many others that I am halfway through watching.

Progress Updates

02-11-2011 - Turns out I severely underestimated how much time Uni work would take up. My writing time is very limited right now, and so far I've only managed to get the prologue and first 3 chapters of Book 2 done. I will keep working at it, though progress will be very slow.

About Taming the Third Lion

Taming the Third Lion, or 3TL, is the first fanfic I have ever written, with the exception of some "warm-up" pieces I wrote (which I may or may not upload depending on whether I can actually decipher my own handwriting). The name is a self-indulgent (and terrible) pun on one of the traditional symbols of England - the three lions - and the title of Digimon Tamers. I began writing back in October 2010 and plan to have the story extend over five or more "books", though I have no idea how long each book will be. Updates may be quite erratic, as I am often quite limited on the time I can take to write. Book 1: Exodus is now complete and Book 2 is currently being written. See the "Progress Updates" section above for details.

3TL contains several original characters and the list is constantly growing. I hope to upload a comprehensive list somewhere at some point, but at the moment I cannot do so without the risk of leaving some spoilers in plain sight. Until that day, I will post a list of spoiler-friendly characters below. If you wish for a more complete list for whatever reason, please send me a PM.

Original Characters:

George Blythe (only appears in one chapter so far, but may have a larger role in the future)

Miranda Brennan

Cameron "Cam" Ridings

Stephanie "Steph" Rare

Maria Wong (see note below)

All the teachers and students at Redcliff High School, Redchapel Middle School and Howden-Smythe Grammar School, as well as the families of said individuals.

A special note on Henry Wong's family: I replaced Henry's mother from the anime with an English woman named Maria (who I haven't written into the story to any real degree as of yet). This was because I wanted to give Henry at least some connection to England. It may just be me being overly-analytical and a little OCD, but it seemed a more believable to do it this way than to have the ready-made Wong family just pop up.
