Hello. long time lurker. So, this kind of started off as a joke, but I had the shower thought one day of "what if Shinji was a girl?"

I kind of laughed and went on with my day, but the thought really haunted me. I also started thinking about the rest of the cast. characters especially like Asuka, the classic tsundere who constantly verbally abuses Shinji. Or Misato, or even Toji. It became really interesting to think of, especially in a show where arguably, gender is a crucial part of it. So, i thought, screw it. And i started coming up with the concept, changing the story a bit and such. I haven't put it on any fan fiction websites, but if anyone's interested, i might post it somewhere. I'm also not a professional writer or anything, just a high school kid with too much time on their hands.

But yeah, I've gotten up to chapter six, and I've basically put full episodes into chapter form. it's been really great, and it's all been just a lot of fun writing and doing it.

I kept Gendo and Yui the same, along with Ritsuko and Fuyutsuki, as i didn't feel a persistent need to change their respective genders. But other then that, it's been a fun ride.

Here's the (cast)

Shizuku Ikari (Shinji Ikari)
Oskar Langley Soryu (Asuka Langley Soryu) (see what i did there :wink: )
Mitsuo Katsuragi (Misato Katsuragi)
Riki Ayanami (Rei Ayanami)
Kanade Nagisa (Kaworu Nagisa)
Tori Suzuhara (Toji Suzuhara)
Gendo Ikari
Ritsuko Akagi
Rini Kaji (Ryoji Kaji)
Hiroshi Horaki (Hikari Horaki)
Keiko Aida (Kensuke Aida)
Madoka Kyuga (Makoto Hyuga)
Shigeru Aoba
Maya Ibuki

Here are some changes

- Kaji is the sole female fanservice provider (basically Fujiko Mine from Lupin III.) She's also a bit younger then Mitsuo (Misato) for that reason.
- Pen-pen isn't in it. I forgot to think about him until I started writing, and (cough cough, ironic, since I'm writing about giant robots) I wanted to go for a more realistic approach to the world. Also, I don't have any use for that little guy. RIP.
- On the note of realisticness, I also made Oskar just go to prestigious boarding schools (presumably paid by his father) in America and Germany, instead of being a college graduate. I mean, c'mon.
- Yes. I am going to be including that infamous hospital scene. I don't know how. But I will try.
- Maya/Ritsuko is more implied
- Modern pop culture references! Also, like in the rebuilds, a couple of improvements to dated 90's things and such. So no more walkman, instead just a phone with headphones
- Oskar has a thing about hating girls, much like Asuka said she detested them. But, as a teenage boy, he obviously is conflicted by his sexuality.
- Mitsuo has a huge porno stash
- The whole Rei reminding Shinji of his mother thing has kind of been taken out, as she's now a boy. Instead it's a kind of weird sibling thing.
- More Kaji/Misato/Ritsuko college stuff! Might be including diary entries from Ritsuko's pov, as it's kind of glossed over.
- Tori (Toji) has an Osaka accent, which I substituted with a Brooklyn accent, much like in the manga.
- Still a lot of emphasis on the whole male pressure thing, such as when Shinji is told to act like a man etc. Mitsuo (Misato) and Oskar (Asuka) have a thing about crying, as it was drilled into their heads from an early age that it was for girls.
- Shizuku finds it hard to interact with males, because of her father complex, much like Shinji had trouble with girls
-Tad bit more swearing. Not too much, but a bit more, especially on Oskar's part.

feel free to ask questions, folks.

You are, I trust, aware of the "Secret of Evangelion" copypasta?
