Re: Okay, let's try to figure out how sapient entity types work.

You've got something of mine at the end of your post but it wasn't linked to my name or the post being responded to. I've fixed it this time, but for the future please make sure all quotes are properly attributed. I didn't know that was important; sorry. You'll probably also get more answers by com...

Re: Okay, let's try to figure out how sapient entity types work.

I'll answer as many of these as I can Yes, originally. The difference that occurred were the results of the fruit they had. By "originally" I mean when they arrived on Earth. Which I guess isn't really "originally". NGE2 says she doesn't. Adam took all the remaining FoL and Lili...

Okay, let's try to figure out how sapient entity types work.

So. There are a bunch of different distinct kinds of entities in NGE, right? We've got humans, we've got Angels, we've got Eva units -- both Adam-derived and Lilith-derived -- we've got Rei, Kaworu, Adam, and Lilith. The types have various attributes. Our goal is to identify which types of entities ...

Re: ...let's talk about 3.33.

And if you haven't even examined the CI that closely, you're admitting you're barely familiar with 1/2 of the only information source on them. Helps to know what's actually known before speculating, isn't it? (Incidentally, the technology thing is... from the Classified Information.) Calm down. You...

Re: ...let's talk about 3.33.

Not sure where you're getting a "species of GNRs" from. GNR was a product of two Seeds combining (something that wasn't supposed to happen but did anyway). The Seeds themselves are entities that the FAR created to guarantee their long-term survival, indicating that the Seeds were required...

Re: ...let's talk about 3.33.

I've never liked the idea of the doomed FAR, both because it's less interesting than them being around and having some other motive, and because I really can't think of any sort of natural disaster that could threaten a species of GNRs. Besides...like...universal collapse. Which obviously wasn't the...

...let's talk about 3.33.

I. Context. A couple days ago I finally decided to watch the Rebuilds all the way through. Now, 1.11 and 2.22 held no real surprises for me -- I had, among other things, watched the SFdebris reviews of those films (and in the case of 1.11, seen NGE), so I pretty much knew the plot to the letter. Bu...

Evangelion: You Are (Not) the Foe

Alright. So, this is something I've had in mind for quite a while. I'm not totally sold on writing it yet; whether I do will depend largely on you guys' reactions. (Although I'm heavily leaning toward doing so.) I'm going to outline the basic story idea, the synopsis of w...

You ran out of ink, too, didn't you, you bastards?

So...what exactly does that mean, anyway? I mean, it's one of those things that manages to be funny regardless, but I never quite figured out the meaning. Is the idea that the staff were saying they ran out of time or money, and Shinji/Spencer was sarcastically wondering if they were going to cl...

Rei is the reason human civilization as we know it is effectively destroyed by the end of EoE. exactly No but seriously, what I actually meant by "everything" was "Shinji's mental state", since that's sort of the focus of the story. I probably should have specified that,...

...wha? To what I understand, though: Rei fixes things by existing, and not being an asshole. Yeah, it's weird and often horrifying, but that's par for the course when you're dealing with an eldritch abomination. Admittedly, dumping the reins on Shinji, who was basically a walking corpse...

Well that's the thing. For most people, the point is to survive and reproduce. That's enough for them, because it's what they're programmed to do. But I don't have those objectives. From a human standpoint, I'm defective -- the mid-level directives are just...missing. I have ...

Oh, yeah: thanks for the suggestion of watching EoE, then EoTV. I hadn't actually considered that, and it's a very good idea. Also, I've realized I was very unclear originally. (And yes I recognize the irony of failing to properly communicate the concept that human communication isn&...
