From the demented mind of Blazing Chaos comes a rather entertaining series. Dimensions follows on from the end of Digimon Tamersand later Digimon Adventure and covers the lives of our heroes as they grow up, going through terrible tragedy, destructive battles and the foibles of maturity, all the while trying to find the truth about this world they inhabit, the true nature of Digimon, and the true nature of those in their group who are not entirely as they seem. Can they trust newcomers? Is it right to kill? And what does the future hold in store for them, a future which has a strange way of getting in contact with them? And what on earthis up with the pebbles?The series begins with Book One: Links (this is the rewrite) set shortly after the end of Season 3. Takato and the other tamers decide to take advantage of the portal shown at the end of the Season Finale to bring back their partners. Of course, things are never that simple. Especially when odd things begin to happen around TakatoandRika...The series is well-known for the extensive and elaborate mythology that is crafted and integrated into the normal Digimon series. While some might be discouraged by the inclusion of some of the more unusual plot elements, most find them very entertaining and actually make the story better.Dimensions is planned to have fourteen books and a number of spin-offs with six stories already completed and the seventh currently being written. In addition to Links, the main stories of the series includes so far Book Two: Powers, Book Three: Evils, Book Four: Gods, Book Five: Demons, Book Six: Tricks, and Books Seven: Escapes. Extra Dimensions is a collection of short stories that fills in the gaps and Dimensions: Strategems is a side-story set during the currently-unwritten Book Twelve.
This Series demonstrates examples of:
Ascended Fanboy: Takato was already this in the show, but so is the new character, Ryder.
Light Is Not Good: Just like her counterpart, Harmony is not straight forward. Some pretty bad things have been connected to her name, including the kidnapping of young girls by a village of Renamon and DarkRenamon in order to reach the mega level.
Loads and Loads of Characters: When you add the tamers, their digimon, the Digidestined, their partners, the new OC tamers and partners, assorted parents, Monster Makers, and other important reoccuring humans and digimon, there is quite a population running around.
Multinational Team: While most of the kids are from Japan, they later gain some members from Great Britain and America.
Personality Powers: Subverted. Takato, the nice guy and least aggressive of all the goggle-heads is the incarnation of Chaos. Rika, the Defrosting Ice Queen of the show with some temper issues is the incarnation of Harmony.
Physical God: Takato and Rika, due to be the current incarnations of Chaos and Harmony respectively.
Screw Destiny: : Rey/Rei, as the Tenth Angel of Destiny, has the ability sense destiny's flow and, thus, alter it. At the low end of her powers she can alter anyone's luck for the better or worse. At the high end of her powers she can kill anyone by nullifying their destiny - effectively erasing them from existence.
Seven Deadly Sins: One of the Books revolves around the heroes facing the Seven Demon Lords.
Shipper on Deck: Takato and Rika strongly approve, and take active steps to promote, Guilmon and Renamon as a couple.
Weirdness Censor: Very few people remember the fact that the tamer universe and Digidestined universe ended up combining together. Anything that doesn't quite fit together properly is essentially forgotten or ignored by the general population.
Except for the Gods, Angels and Demons and anyone who happened to be in contact with one of them or in an alternate universe at the time...
Wham Episode: The end of Book One. And Book Three. And Book Four. And Book Five. Actually, most books have some form of big twist near the end. Blazing Chaos seems to like these surprises.
Chapter Thirty of Book Seven. The Kabuki Village would've been wiped out without being able to digivolve (due to the light of digivolution being stored in Calumon) - the previous Priestess Sakuyamon would've died with no mega level heir to create the village's magical shield/invisibility cloak. The solution? Kidnap girls from the real world and force a biomerge. Oh dear. When the Tamers find out, Harmony isn't quite so complimentary of The Priestess' 'amazing plan'...
Winds of Destiny, Change: Ryder, the First Angel, has this as his ability, Retcon. Retcon rewinds time and allows to Ryder to pick an outcome that is better than what the original outcome was. All of Rey's/Rei's, the Tenth angel, abilities are this Up to Eleven
