Well, I finally did it. After over four years, my first ever Digimon fan-story – and my first major writing project in general – has come to an end. It's been a rough ride, and often far too much trouble for my own good. But honestly, this whole thing has been so worth it. I'm glad that the silly little Digimon story I was sat on since I was a kid is finally written down for everyone to see. I might just cry.
This may be a little sappy, but I have a few thank-yous I need to make.
Firstly, thank you to Xuza, Blustersquall and H-Boogie, Chi and DS, and Kazz; authors of the fan-series' Digimon Reboot, Digimon Advent and Digimon Regenesis. These stories were the ones that made me realise I could genuinely do something like this and were the push for me to get started all those years ago; plus they are all wonderful people, supportive and an inspiration to the community.
Thank you to DS, JediCody, CannonFodder10503, SeriesArtistStarter and Gomamon4Life for their wonderful contest entries for the Silicon City villains. You all put a heck of a lot of work into your characters and I really hope I did them all justice in the end. You too have been amazingly supportive throughout the years, so thank you.
And of course, thank you to everybody who has read, reviewed, commented on, favourited, followed and generally seen this story come into fruition, whether on the site, on DeviantArt or on FanFiction. I realise I'm not the chattiest of people but I have and do appreciate every single one of you and every response you leave; the story has been a joy to work on and I hope it's been a joy to some of you as well.
So it leaves to stand; what now? Well, I'm not going anywhere soon. I plan on changing things a bit but I have plans to get back to Digimon and the Digimon Inferno universe in the near future:
- Playing with Matches: A short series about the travels of the first group of Digidestined, back in the fifties.
- Firestarters: A short series about the first mission of the Fire Kingdom Commanders
- Error 404: A short standalone series.
And yes, eventually, the Inferno story will continue in Digimon Rise.
I haven't got timescales laid out for all this yet; I have other original fiction works I'd like to work on (plus I've got to finish my degree this year), but hopefully I can get something out before the new year is up. So keep an eye out.
For now, though, I can finally put up my keyboard and relax for a brief period. To finish off Inferno, I've written just a final little tying-up of some loose-ends and maybe one or two little teasers for what's to come.
You are all fantastic and I love you all. Hope 2017 brings you much joy and contentment, and I'll see y'all soon.
Episode 53 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
I can't believe this poxy year. And yet somehow, through everything, I am now at the point when I am posting the second-to-last chapter of this story I've been working on since 2012. This series has spanned two Olympic seasons. I can't help but feel both incredibly knackered and so, so glad/shocked to have actually gotten this far.
There's a new profile up, not that there's much more left to reveal at this point. Still, you can't say I don't try and give you visual aids. :P
Well, the uni work is drying up for the semester, the nights are getting cold, and the holidays are on the way. I know it's a long shot given this year, but I wish you all a merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season. Thanks for staying with this for so long, I really appreciate it.
Come back on New Years Day for the final episode of Digimon Inferno. Stay warm and comfortable all, and I'll see you then.
Episode 52 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Mneeeeeeaaaaah. Uni is wonderful and I have no regrets whatsoever. He says in a sarcastic tone.
The new chapter is available to all, along with a couple of new profiles that you should check out once you've finished reading. :)
Only two more episodes to go. We're nearly there...
Episode 51 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
So due to my wonderful life decisions I have somehow managed to catch a bug right as my final year begins, which is a pain, but it does mean I can get the chapter out reasonably on time. Hopefully.
There is a new profile around as well as the chapter, so check that out once you've finished. I haven't got much more to add here before the story's up, although once it is I do plan on going through the site and updating it, making it slightly easier to use and making sure the chapters are on their latest version (not that there are any plotholes or spelling mistakes or bad writing practises whatsoever because who do you think I am? :P)
I will probably also be changing hosts at somepoint and leaving a bit of space for a couple of other fics I have planned? Maybe? At any rate, I'll finish Inferno first.
The final battle begins next month...
Episode 50 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
A very small update this time, no profiles or promos or stuff. Just a single, solitary chapter. I hope you enjoy it.
Everything falls into place. I'll see you next month.
Four episodes left...
Episode 49 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Got the chapter out on time this time! Just. And it's probably the last 'big update' in a while, just as we enter the final stretch.
And there is actually a lot of new stuff this time. As well as new profiles for things appearing in this episode, we have a new gallery addition and a new fanseries on the Links page, Digimon.exe. It's nice seeing new projects getting up and running, so do go and check it out.
And we enter the final chapter. Only five episodes to go...
Episode 48 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
And late again. Humph. Computer troubles and illness this time, and again, there's a lot of artwork to get done. Plus it was a tricky chapter, but I'm relatively happy with it. Gonna be nothing on next week's though. Yeesh.
Going to keep it short and sweet this week; you can probably find where everything is.
Six episodes left...
Episode 47 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Well, that was a couple of days late. Partially due to personal stuff and partially because I really wanted to get the art finished, and...well, I'm sure you'll see for yourself. Another milestone reached.
Hopefully next month will be on time; until then, there's a lot of nice little stuff around the website that you might enjoy. Once Inferno's finished I really need to update this place, since I want to change the layout a bit.
The clever among you may be able to guess where next week's going, but we'll get there soon.
Only seven episodes to go. I am feeling the pressure big time. :S
Episode 46 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
New chapter for your perusement. There is supposed to be a new profile with it, but due to technical issues I haven't actually been able to draw it out, so you'll be seeing that next time. In the meantime, feel free to let your imaginations run wild.
Uni's very nearly done with, so once that's out the way I can focus on getting this completely up to date, as well as get working on Playing with Matches, Firestarters, Rise, all these other projects I keep talking about...
Hope you enjoy. Next month's episode we return to someone we left in the woods a little while ago...
Episode 45 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Bit of a late update but I've been busy with various quizzes and committee stuff and all kinds of wondrous uni work. Just a few more weeks and I'll be done for the year. I can't wait.
There's a new chapter and for the first time in a while a new profile; feel free to have a gander after you've finished with the episode.
Apart from that, hope you enjoy. Be back in a few weeks.
Episode 44 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
The road to healing is a long and painful one. Trust me, I know. Blummin' ingrown toenails.
Anyhoo, really not much added this month other than the chapter itself; for me at least it's a much needed breather. Hope you enjoy it, and don't worry, we've got further developments to catch up on next time.
Episode 43 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Nothing much to say this update. Although a lot going on in the chapter, and there's a profile addition. The astute amongst you might be able to start putting some things together.
See you next month.
Episode 42 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
It's a new year, and we're back for the final stretch of the story. I hope you'll enjoy what's coming.
All my chapters are now up on DeviantArt, along with screenshots, profiles etc, so if for some reason the website decides not to work you should now be able to find everything there.
I'll be back. ;)
Episode 41 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Just uploaded in time (at least from where I am :P). Here you go; the end of the Flames of War arc. I hope you enjoy it.
Well, that was hard. A hard chapter to write and lots of stuff going on IRL, which have all kind of culminated this weekend.
I'm going to take a month off due to Christmas, driving lesson, exams and getting the final arc all sorted, so the new chapter will be out on the 31st January. Until then I will be posting the full chapters on my DeviantArt page so at least you have a chance to revisit the story.
See you, space cowboy.
Episode 40 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
So, yeah. Not much I can say about this perfectly normal episode.
That said, sadly this is the last update that will have screenshots, at least for the foreseeable future. Hopefully I can still captivate you all with my wordplay alone, but yeah, other stuff has happened and I need to prioritise.
On the other hand, there are new things to find on the site, so go and have a look once you're ready. I'm sure you'll know what it is you're looking for.
See you next month for the finale of this arc.
Episode 39 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
So, here we are. The battle with Surtremon. It's been a long time coming, but hopefully it's worth it.
Not much going on outside of the chapter, although I should point out that there are certain things referenced that haven't been written yet; they will appear in certain side stories after the end of Inferno. For now, feel free to theorise.
Please enjoy, review, and see you next month
Episode 38 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
The battle continues and certain other characters make their moves. This one took a while to do and I had to fit it in between moving house again (yo ho, yo ho, a student life for me). Still, it's done, and I'm pleased with how it turned out. Go and check the damage at your leisure.
That's pretty much it for this update. Join me next month as we partake in the showdown of the century.
Episode 37 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Bloody hell. This was a long and difficult one with about six hundred different things going on at once. I hope I managed to pull it off alright.
I've had a play around with the site; now there are specific spoiler tags for certain major events in the character profiles and menus, so if you haven't reached the episode mentioned, you may want to hold off on checking out that part of the profile. Or not. It's up to you. On a related not there's a profile addition, but I'm not gonna tell you where it is. :P
See you next month.
Episode 36 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
A nice, relatively smooth update this time, with no artwork fiasco. Not that there's a huge amount of artwork anyway.
This was a fun episode to write. And alas, for our brave adventurers, the battle is just beginning. I still find it difficult to believe I've actually gotten this far from when I started. Still got a way to go yet, though. We may have reached the battlefield, but now the true challenge has only just begun.
Just a quickie; all the artwork for last episode is now updated.
Episode 35 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
So yeah, you might realise there's a slight lack of artwork this update. Well that's because yours truly did a dummy and left all the screenshots and web graphics back on his other computer. And is now on holiday for two weeks. Woops. Well, I've done what I can; there's a new profile and the episode is up (although for now you can only reach it from the homepage). I will update with the screenshots when I can get to them.
But yes, there is a new episode and a new profile. Please do give me feedback; whether you enjoy the episode or not, it's very helpful to actually know how I'm doing.
Next update; it's all come down to this. Get ready; the battle's about to begin.
Episode 34 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Huzzah! A very-nearly-full update, and just in time! Aren't I wonderful?
There are a few extra bits around the site (profiles and whatnot) to keep you busy once you've finished with the chapter. I should really sort out a better spoiler system here, but oh well, I'll trust you guys to be responsible for now.
Enjoy, and see you in four weeks when we go and check on the girls once more...I'm sure everything's just fiiiiine...
Episode 33 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
Apologies for the day-late update this month; I pretty much ran out of energy at the last minute. Still, the new chapter's out. Hope you enjoy sunshine and rainbows, because there's a lot of that this episode. :P
Also there are lots of new profiles to check out; again, they will contain spoilers for the episode so read that first, sillyheads.
There's a lot going on this episode so I'll keep my waffling short. Enjoy!
Episode 32 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
I did get it out on time after all! Had an interesting few weeks and getting the art done has been tricky. Again an...interesting episode. Still, hope you enjoy it.
Another new profile, so check it out after the episode. It's probably pretty obvious who it is anyway, but shush. XD
Next episode, we head north, so make sure to pack your snowshoes and plenty of chocolate. Until then, stay cool.
Episode 31 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
An interesting chapter this time around. Not a personal favourite and a bit of a pain to write, but hopefully it's turned out okay.
Again, some more little bits and pieces of info added to the site, including a new profile. Once you've read the chapter, go and check it out; it's perhaps not what your were expecting...
Well, I'm back on track, and ready for the next update. Enjoy. ;)
Episode 30 is now up for your reading pleasure. Please leave comments, reviews and criticism.
And we're back, after far too long not posting anything. The new chapter reveals all, so go and read it.
A few more little extra bits and pieces around the site as well, including a face that's been hidden until now.
Well, hopefully this new four-weekly schedule will work out; this last month's been ok workload wise, so let's hope so. Personally, I'm just glad to be back.
So yeah, join me in four weeks for more wacky fun-time shenanigans. I'll see you then.
