Tracy Higgins by Blackbird2 Tracy Higgins by Blackbird2
This was a random idea that I kinda blame JessuOtaku from ThatGuyWithTheGlass.com for because of her awesome Digimon retrospectives, epsecially the one on Tamers, which kind of rekindled my interest in Digimon. So my muse being what it is came up with the idea of a female gogglehead and wouldn't let it go until I go it out somehow which is all thanks to :iconfestum:'s drawing abilities.

So meet Tracy Higgins, the resident gogglehead for the Digimon series currentl forming in my head. Like her the other goggle bearers she's outgoing, kind of excitable and always meets every challenge with a take charge, can do attitude! Most of it comes from the fact that she's the outdoorsy/sporty type that loves to go hiking, camping and rock climbing. In fact that brace on her leg comes from an hiking accident but she didn't let that slow her down for long. She just needs to treat it gingerly at times.

Like the other chosen kids she was just a freashmen in high school having to deal with all the usual drama there when she and a few of her classmates were pulled into the Digital World through the many electonic devices scattered throughout the school. Once there they were told by a surprisingly human looking person calling himself "The Guardian" that they were needed to help defeat an evil Digimon overlord named "Serpentmon" who was slowly trying to take control of the Digital World. Given partner Digimon and Digivices emplanted in their arms the eight teenagers were set out to turn the tide in the conflict.

Being one of the oldest ones there and the most take charge, Tracy soon found herself as the defacto leader of the ragtag group and has to find a way to deal juggle her own personal sense of adventure and wonder with her responbility to keep the others alive. Of course the biggest challenge is just getting all the varied personailites to work together and leave all the high school drama at high school. A prospect that may prove even *more* difficult than beating Serpentmon and his forces.

I like the idea of a female googlehead. I am interested to see where you will take this.

Thanks. I just figured having a female leader would be a good chance of pace and make things more interesting.

Yes, it would and such looks likable enough. Funny, how my main character is similar yet so different from yours.

At least they're different. I've had plenty of times where people come up with the same ideas I have! I gets frustrating after awhile. But now we're just in the "great minds" place.

Yeah, I am glad they are different because I can't tell you how many times somebody has the same exact ideas as me. And example would be was that originally I was going to have the hero's Veemon infected with Digital Hizard... That reminds me you should read Digimon Tamers Mirai by Riza23 on dA. It is good.

Oh trust me I'd believe it. Like I said it can be VERY frustrating. I might have to check out that fic whenever I get the chance. So much to do around here...

Yeah, it can be very frustrating but as the old saying goes "nothing is new under the sun." Right now am doing a cover for my fic. It is coming together well. I will post it when it gets finished.

Yeah that's true now more than ever given that execs keep putting out the same old stuff or rebooting old franchises and things like that.

Though I suppose I'm not one to talk right now considering I'm thinking of making a new Digimon series.

Uh-oh, that girl be wearing goggles, those goggle wearing digi-destined are always sassy trouble makers ;P heh

Sounds like quite the fun character though and she has an interesting design I think. But that implanted digivice looks a bit painful; I imagine that must make them pretty much impossible to lose though. Good set-up for the adventure too, sounds like they have quite a bit of work ahead of them.

Hey there IS a precident that needs to be followed in this series with goggle headed kids. And like them she also have brown hair you just can't tell in the black and white pic.

Yeah that Digivice in the skin was :iconfestum:'s idea so I just ran with it. But like you said it solves the almost ever present problem of the kids losing them. Still they're not the most fashionable, or comfortable, things around. Which would be a problem for another member of the team...
