Dimensions Book One: Links is the first book in the Dimensions series. It continues on from where Digimon Tamers left off, as the Tamers venture to retrieve their Digimon from the Digital World, whilst strange forces, unexpressed feelings and computer viruses hang in the background.

The Book features ten chapters in its original form. It is currently in the middle of being rewritten.

Plot Edit

Chapter One: Hazard Virus Edit

The Digimon escape from deletion on the Digital Plane, thanks to Guilmon's timely and unexpected Digivolution. Takato, meanwhile, discovers a document in his computer that was not supposed to be there, a personal one. On his way to return it to its rightful owner, he discovers the portal. He immediately phones Rika, who in turn phones Henry on the discovery. The three come together and discuss the best course of action.

Chapter Two: You’ve Got Some Convincing To Do Edit

Takato and the others go home, to inform their parents of their decisions. Henry manages to convice his father to provide aid to them. Takato and Rika encounter problems with telling their parents and decide not to do so. Takato tries to hide the thumbstick with the document inside from Rika, and succeeds, but arouses Rika's suspicions. The three meet up once again at Guilmon's hideout, but their parents arrive just in time. Rika argues with her mother, before leaving in anger though the portal. Takato recieves his parents blessings and entered the portal in an attempt to catch Rika. Henry stays long enough to witness Ryo's arrival, and receive the new Digital Navigators, D-Navs for short from Yamaki before following his friends.

Chapter Three: The New And Reformatted Digital World Edit

Takato lands in the Digital Plane in an unfortunate position - on top of Rika, which earns him a smack. Rika soon discovers the presence of Ryo, much to her displeasure. They soon discover the Digital World has changed, leaving Ryo next to useless as the supposed guide. They get a ride on a passing Locomon, where Rika confronts him about his newfound feelings for her but they stop when Takato says he doesn't love her. The two end up stuck at the end of the train when the door shuts on them. They have another talk about Rika herself.

Chapter Four: Rabbit Reunion Edit

The train enters a greenish substance that supposedly separates the planes. Takato gallantly and daringly grabbed Rika's hand to prevent them from flying out. The train comes to a sudden halt and Takato finds himself in the very same position as before, except this time Rika didn't hit him. The foursome get off the train and travels the Forest Plane on foot. The ground was suddenly stuck by an earthquake and Takato lands himself in the already very familiar position. They face the source of the quake: a Tyrannomon. Henry and Ryo run, but Takato and Rika stay behind. Takato's eyes turn red at the Tyrannomon, but Rika does not notice and gets a shock for pulling Takato up.

They find themselves surrounded by a dozen Tyrannomon. To their surprise, they found Monodramon, MarineAngemon and Terriermon there as well. The team Digivolves and fight the Tyrannomon, who Digivolves as well into MasterTyrannomon.

Plot (Rewrite of Book One) Edit

Characters (in order of appearance) Edit

Continuity Edit

  • Takato winces when remembering Megidramon, who first appeared in Episode 34, Lionheart.
  • The name of the Hazard Virus is a direct reference to the Hazard, which is eventually revealed as its cause.
  • Rika notes that she is destiny's play toy, an ironic foreshadowing of her daughter, Rey, the Tenth Angel of Destiny.
  • Tibo Village would later appear in sequel books several times.
  • This book features the first appearance of Digital Watch, a chatroom in the Dimensions universe devoted to keeping track of Digimon and those associated with them. It would develop beyond a chatroom in the following books.
  • It is clear in this story that, in the Dimensions universe, the events of the movie The Runaway Digimon Express didn't take place. One or two elements of it, however, appear in this book, including Rika's song (Promise of the Setting Sun) and the Locomon.

Trivia Edit

  • Yelnir, seen during the Digital Watch chat, is, rather obviously, Riley Ootori, presumably working on behalf of Hypnos and monitoring Digital Watch.
  • A character by the name of Koji is studying with Henry's Sensei, Sensei Chou. This is a Digimon Frontier cameo. Thomas H. Norstein is also referred to as studying there, a Digimon Data Squad reference.
  • Jeri Katou's phone number is 080-2943-9427.
  • The character of Chiaki Konaka is a reference to the head writer of Digimon Tamers.
