For some reason, I recently had this mental image of Shinji quoting Lelouch Lamperouge.

Something that came up relatively recently.

Would it be possible for Rei to develop an Asuka-esque unhealthy fixation at being the best pilot if her desire to fulfill her purpose overpowers her loyalty to Gendo? That is, she wants to be the best because that gets her to fulfilling her purpose (and consequently being allowed to perma-die) the fastest - not to mention that if there is someone better than her, she risks being declared obsolete and consequently not being able to fulfill her purpose.

Yes I think that's possible having just read Nobody Dies fanfiction where she's kind of a crazy nut ball though I think to make this happen you need Ritsuko or Misato to be very behind her as a positive parent figure and for not to live a shit hole apartment and have her own hobbies as it would give her confidence to answer back and follow this path even though its negative. You could even take it further in that her peers are filling her head with ideas that if she for fills her purpose she will become a god in the flesh as this could feed in to a negative obsession with power.

Actually, I was thinking that in order to maximize the irony factor, Gendo actually does consider and treat Rei as a surrogate daughter instead of a tool, or at least tries to. Problem is, Rei finds it annoying - not only he's not letting her die until she has achieved her purpose, he wants to distract and delay her too? Hell, why is he even caring considering that she's going to die anyway?

You know what that sounds like an awesome idea I'd like to read that just to see Gendo struggle with her as you have some real black comedy in places like "Oh gee thanks dad but I died twice already don't you have any thing better to do than get in my personal space?" Then have Gendo reply with some utter weird shit like "Would you like your next body to have long hair or be taller anything to please my little girl." followed by her tapping her cheek and her pulling her away really sharply. :D

She wouldn't be quite that different.

I mean, yeah, making characters act out-of-character to throw a curveball at readers who know the source material is kinda my specialty, but I have to throw a bone to readers that don't quite like that kind of thing.

I think it would be possible to have Rei have some sort of fixation on piloting, to some extent. I was actually rewatching Episode 6 for my fic, and I noticed that when Shinji asks her why she pilots, she responds with that being all she has and that it is her connection to life.

Spice it up a little bit and I think it would create an very interesting story.
