Fan Fic: A Captive Light

A Captive Lightis a Digimon fanfic written by Hedgi.

Set during Digimon Adventure 02, Ken plots his revenge for his most recent defeat at the hands of the Digidestined. He realizes that the greatest strength is also a weakness- they are loyal to a fault and would do anything for a friend. He plots to kidnap one of them to use as a hostage. However, his newest minions, the harpy like Zhannemon, fail and only manage to capture Gatomon. Kari is panic stricken, and they try desperately to find Ken and free the captive digimon, while Ken plots his next move. The group follows false trails and is attacked by the Zhannemon, who bear no dark rings but are instead infected with the evil black gears used by Devimon in the past. Emotions run high as the kids try to rescue their friend, and the younger Digidestined learn about the older kid's past- for Kari is convinced that history is repeating and something terrible is coming. And it is - for Ken's plan to rid the Digital world of the other Digidestined comes to a head when he strikes out again - and memories of the past return to haunt Kari and her friends.

This Fanfiction provides examples of:

A Fading Hope provides examples of:

  • Bad Dreams: T.K has several, getting worse as the story goes on.
  • Big "NO!": Kari to Devimon.
  • Catapult Nightmare: T.K in the first chapter.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Kari’s fake crest, Matt’s coat.
  • Chosen One: “the Small One.”
  • Darker and Edgier: The tone is darker, and while there are still many light hearted moments, the story is considerably darker than A Captive Light.
  • Darkest Hour: the gang’s captured, Matt and Cody are dying, Kari’s dead, and TK loses hope. If that’s not a Darkest Hour, what is?
  • Dead Sidekick: Mentioned. Even though he Got Better, Patamon. It gives T.K. nightmares.
  • Despair Event Horizon: just after the Darkest Hour. Rather chilling.
  • Despair Gambit: Devimon's plan. Unlike many examples of this trope, it actually works Until T.K. is reminded that two of his friends might still have a chance if he fights.
  • Disney Death: Kari. Kari, Kari, Kari.
  • Flashback Nightmare: of a sort.
  • Everybody Lives: revealed at the very end, after several chapters of uncertainty.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Kari for T.K.
  • Heroic BSOD: Oh, T.K.....
  • History Repeats: Devimon’s claim that the Smallest would defeat him, moving to kill T.K, the Heroic Sacrifice of a friend being all that saves his butt.
  • Hope Spot: Kari’s the Chosen one! They can still win.. or...not. later, TK gets one when he realizes that Tai and the others are alive, thinking Kari might be with them. Nope.
  • It's All My Fault: T.K. He snaps out of it.
  • It's Probably Nothing: T.K to Patamon about his dreams
  • Let's Split Up, Gang.
  • Little "No": often. several in the Dream alone
  • Mood Whiplash: in chapter two, it goes from happily hanging out to an attack of black gears. On the flip side, the Dream starts off very, very dark and whiplashes to a very nice dream in second
  • Never Say "Die": toyed with, mostly averted.
  • Nightmare Sequence: the first half of the Dream.
  • Only One: The Small One is the only one who CAN defeat Devimon - the prophecy does not say that he WILL, however. This is pointed out.
  • Open-Minded Parent: To some extent, T.K.’s. Also, Izzy’s, extremely so.( This is mainly in the extra found on Hedgi’s blog.)
  • Say My Name: also frequently
  • Screw Destiny
  • Shout-Out: to Serenity.
  • The Reveal Kari's the Small One, not T.K....except that no, actually it was T.K.
  • Un Chosen One: What T.K thinks he is after Kari is killed. Turns out he was the Chosen one after all.
  • Wham Line: “Since File Island was back...Devimon might be, too...”; “He’s dying”
