So, this is a thread dedicated to the writers to chat about their favorite fics or chapters of the fics they've written and the reasons why they chose those chapters to represent their best work. Every writer has to have a favorite fic, one shot, or moment from their plethora of writing, or an entire fic they think rises above the rest of their work. So, writers... take a moment and give yourselves a pat on the back for producing content for everyone to read, then start bragging :lol:

So, some ground rules
    > All fanfic writing in the realm of Neon Genesis Evangelion is on the table, including all crossovers, One Shots, or AU out there. However, if the story involves... extracurricular content, keep it SFW please.
    > This isn't just about your own work. Feel free to agree or disagree with a writer and tell them what your favorite chapter of their fic is and why, if you've read it of course.
    > No excessive hating on someone's work - if you don't like what someone wrote, constructive criticism is best, tell them how to improve, don't just rag on it.
Other than that, have fun and happy posting! ^_^

I'm... not sure I have anything worth praising. I mean, sure, I do have a handful of regulars over on SV who keep telling me my stuff is awesome - but that's kinda a one-sided opinion. And of course there's also the fact that my one Eva fic worth noting is virtually unknown over here.

What's the fic's name? And not to sound like a putz, but what's SV?

Since I've only written one fic, apart from a couple of throwaway scraps, it's easy for me to choose! And I was learning to write as I wrote it, so the later chapters should be better, right? But in fact, while there are a few duds early on, there were also things I found hard to write later (action, in particular). If you want me to pick out the best chapters, I'd tentatively suggest 3, 14, 21 (for its experimental style), 23 (the heart of the matter), and 27 (added as an impulse after the supposed end, and making a far more satisfactory rounding off).

Thank you sir. Now I feel like less of a putz.

Is your fic only posted on SV?

SV, Spacebattles, FF.net, AO3.

Of these, I only get frequent actual feedback on SV and the very rare comment on AO3; nothing else from the other two, though I do have 71 favs and 57 followers for the fic on FF.net.

From time to time I've flirted with the idea of doing a Crisis of Infinite Shinjis: Redux but after writing Chapter 6 of that work I felt like I'd said everything I could say.

My actual favorite, though, is Samsara even if it's overly sappy, sentimental, and cheesy.

Nothing wrong with overly sappy or sentimental.

Well, on AO3, unless its a Shinji/Kaworu lemon, very little is said about them. I get a fair amount of feedback from FF.net myself, but my crossover got the most feedback which was interesting to see.

Which is the one thing I'm never gonna write without genderbending.

Well, I did get one FF.net review earlier this week, with the reader having found a certain scene involving Rei hilarious. I'm not sure if I find it funny myself... though that might be simply because I'm the one who wrote it.
