Fanfiction Idea: A Digimon Adventure continuation that rejects Adventure 02.
So I totally forgot you said that, but I did just come up with something.
It doesn't completely reject 02, as Ken still appears as the Digimon Emperor, and still makes use of Control Spires and the Dark spores, but the idea is that the new chosen don't appear, and there's no armour evolution.
When the Emperor starts flexing his muscle with the Spires, the originals find that they can't evolve their Digimon to higher forms (the towers don't work like in the original 02 where they force the digimon back to it's previous form, but still prevent Evolution within their sphere of influence, so the chosen have to work around it by evolving outside the area at first).
They will not have given up their Crest Powers, but won't be able to evolve to Perfect / Ultimate due to the large number of towers. As they destroy more, they start re-taking levels
and getting back up to their former state. Until that time, they have to rely on cleverness and team work when having to fight Perfect levels.
I don't know what role Chimeramon will play yet, but I might still work him in, I do know that the Kaiser Arc will once again end with Ken doing a Heel-Face Turn
. The others are for the most part willing to give him a chance to redeem himself, and then Arachnemon and Mummymon come into the picture, and eventually Vamdemon, just like before. The Chosen beat him by letting Taichi and Yamato reach Ultimate / Mega again, and all of them kick his ass....including Ken, who helps Wormon reach his own perfect level of Jewelbeemon with his crest of Kindness......
And then things get interesting. While Vamdemon was trying his usual crap (and he puts up a much better fight then in the original series) Demon has taken notices of both the effectiveness of the Dark spores, and the partnership between humans and digimon, so he decides to make us of both. he copies Ken's dormant spore, and captures Arachnemon as well (who survive Vamdemon's double cross somehow, don't ask me how yet) and uses both to create Digimon for himself, and human partners to pair them with: A twist on the international Chosen and Dark spore kids arc.
For this part, the digimon will all be Expies of the chosens:
- The Commandramon line for Agumon
- The Liollmon line for Gabumon
- Saberdramon (along with a good rookie) for Biyomon / Piyomon, complete with Parrotmon for it's perfect
- Nobody but Kuwagamon for Tentomon
- Lalamon for Palmon
- Don't know who to use for Gomamon, but for now, maybe Betamon and the Seadramon line
- Naturally, Devimon for Angemon (with good old Pico / Demi Devimon as his child form).
- And if you thought I'd miss an opportunity for a good Catfight, then you are delusional, because Black-Tailmon / Gatomon for Tailmon / Gatomon.
And for Ken....no damn clue, but he'll get someone.
With the stakes raised much higher than before, the kids have to even start getting their digimon up to the Mega level, which means Phoenixmon, Hercules Kabuterimon
, Rosemon, Vikemon, Seraphimon and Ophanimon, with their evil counterparts doing the same as well.
Shit hits the fan when Omegamon / Omnimon comes back into play, as that brings about the worst possible counter in Chaosmon (hence why I chose Liollmon and Commandramon).
And it's Pandemonium essentially. I still have no idea where this would go, or how to make it all work, but what do you guys think?
