I ship Asuka and Kaworu.

I've written about this in the past:

http://www.evamonkey.com/the-asuka-kaworu-pairing/

and I've assembled a gallery of fan art to illustrate how it is not as uncommon as you might think:

To be honest, I think you could ship Mari with literally anyone and get away with it.

I'm ready to get absolutely destroyed for this but I totally ship Aoba and Maya, along with Ritsuko and Maya, but the latter is kind of unhealthy if you take into account the fact that Ritsuko is only interested in one person. Then I played NGE2 for PSP and felt justified in my favorite ship.

No, I've never met anyone else in the English-speaking fandom that ships this. One person I've talked to on twitter does, I found them from their shigemaya art.

Honestly, though, I'll ship anyone so long as it isn't creepy, so there's that.

Probably, but that's because we know so little about Mari's character cannonically speaking. I ship her with either Rei or Shinji, but her and Sakura or Hikari would be interesting to explore in the future.

Best ship is obviously Shinji x Kaworu lol

I never got all the people saying stuff like "Shinji isn't really gay, he was just really starved for thAT DICK human affection." Like, why can't he be bi or something? Is it totally impossible for there to be romanticism between the two? I thought they were really cute together in the show.

TBH, I'm pretty ambivalent on the whole shipping business. I'm certainly not in the business of defending my preferred pairing (had I one) from the opinions of others, as so many other fans do. But there are a few that I do think just work well, and I've even given some of them names. Other fandoms have given their shippings names, so why not?

The ones that I like--or at least, don't strike me as painfully out of character for one or both parties involved--are:
EvaShipping (Shinji x Asuka)
ClassRepShipping (Hikari x Toji)
NervShipping (Ritsuko x Maya)
KittyShipping (Asuka x Mari)
AngelShipping (Shinji x Kaworu)
AgentShipping (Misato x Kaji)
And last but not least. . .

FlyMeToTheMoonShipping (Shinji x his SDAT player)
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

I was going for the sort of naming scheme used in the Pokemon fandom (where, for example, the pairing of Ash and Misty is called PokeShipping, despite neither of them being Pokemon themselves).

I was a filthy AsuShin before. :D

Then I was graced with the light of Rei/Shinji. ^_^

To absolutely nobody's surprise, after all these years I still love my LAS :asukahearts: :shinjismile:

And the more typical(?) pairings: Hikari/Toji, Kaji/Misato, Maya/Ritsuko, Gendo/Yui....And they might be "uncommon" but Mari/Kensuke and KawoRei are still cute to me, too.

Hilariously enough, the GoS2 game (also on PSP and other Sony systems, though it was originally a PC game) seems to support Kaji/Maya (when you freely explore the town, you'll see what I mean), despite the fact Misato and Kaji seem to still be couple-y in that AU!

I know similar to MGS, shipping isn't exactly "the point" of the series (Forever Alone in Jack/The Boss and BBKaz Hell!), but I still have my favorites, damn it :tongue:

Thats not even the maximum extent... Im pretty sure a skilled writer could even ship her with Gendo, but thats not the point of this thread, so Ill just leave it at that.

^ Okay, I chuckled. :lol:

I started in this fandom as AsuShin (a whopping fifteen-plus years ago), I suspect it'll end in the exact same place. But I won't dare question anyone else's choices, that's just not kosher.

If I had to list some others I enjoy: ReiKaw is a definite yes for me, AsuKaw isn't a total no-go with me (if I'm unable hand her over to Sadboy, that is) and, Rebuild-wise, AsuMari is a solid "maybe".

As far as the pilots go, Toji/Hikari is the only thing I can really see happening canonically unless Bardiel decides to be an asshat again, but I will always have a soft spot for ReiShin

Toji x Shinji is my OTP. Shinji needs a nice boy in his life. Toji, being all macho and stuff, would be flustered around Ikari and in total denial about it. "It's not like I like you or anything, Ikari.
