Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

I strongly disagree on accusing a storywriter of lazy writing just because they skipped over how the relationship came to be. By that logic, we'd have to ridicule every show, movie and video game that ever existed in which the epilogue involved a time-skip after which we see that some characters hav...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

You might have ground for your argument if the fics you're talking about are continuations from the TV anime's canon, but AUs in which the two have lived more or less peaceful lives in well-adjusted families (i.e. similar to the worlds of Shinji Ikari Raising Project and Girlfriend of Steel 2 ) are ...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

There are objectively wrong ways to write a story. One of them is to desecrate all notions of basic grammar and spelling for no good reason. Another that is specific to fanfics is when the fanfic claims to be "totally canon-compliant" but even a grade schooler could tell that the writer's ...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

... You're basically saying that the very concept of "badly written story" does not exist, which is nonsensical. There are heaps of examples out on the Internet as well as in physical literature of stories that are objectively horrible in terms of quality.

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

You know, there's always the in medias res approach, where the story starts with a "prologue" that actually takes place well into the story. It can act as a hook to capture the readers' attention, if it's executed right.

Re: Image Request Thread

Where is that image from, if I may ask? A video game? Official artwork with no clear context?

You are also forgetting the fact that in the beginning of Episode 19, that same boy explicitly threatened to destroy Nerv HQ with the remaining battery power in his Eva in the standoff between him and the Nerv staff (more specifically, his father), all over the near-death experience (or actual death...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

So Shinji killing off all of humanity just because he couldn't stand living anymore doesn't count? Sure, he technically "reversed" that, but he still pulled the trigger when offered the choice... and his "reversal" only gave humans the chance to re-corporalize, not guarantee it. ...

Re: Mari's national origin: England specifically, or Britain in general?

I was always under the impression that you couldn't get much more "Jolly Old England" than tea. I mean, talk about stereotypes. Yeah, well, you have the whole "Britain is only England" stereotype to blame. I'm also really confused about what this thread's actual purpose is. You ...

Re: Mari's national origin: England specifically, or Britain in general?

So? She doesn't need to have been born in England to acquire a taste for tea. Hell, she doesn't even need to be raised in England to develop such a taste; it's probably just stereotyping going on, of the "if she's born somewhere in the UK, then she must have a taste for tea" sort. ... Hell...

Re: Mari's national origin: England specifically, or Britain in general?

Well, I just checked the Japanese wiki, and given that イギリス is mentioned in the same context as Mari being affiliated with a/the "Euro branch" (ユーロ支部) of Nerv, it's probably safe to assume that イギリス is being used in the sense of "United Kingdom" rather than just "England&quo...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

I think what would be more interesting would be if a microscopic Angel was discovered, and the only way the pilots could fight it is if they and their Eva units were reduced to its size. Technically, Ireul is microscopic. Well, it's a macroscopically observable collection of microscopic bio-machine...

Mari's national origin: England specifically, or Britain in general?

On the wiki, Mari's nationality is stated to be British because, and I quote: The booklet that comes with the 2.22 DVD release states that Mari was born in England . The thing is, I've learned a relatively long time ago that in Japanese, several of the words (usually of the loanword kind) that ultim...
