Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

Rei, but she really is not his girlfriend (or anyone's, for that matter). And the trick I'm pulling with Kaworu is that although he starts out human, he gradually slides back to something more like his canon personality by the end. Although the story has amusing moments like the above, it is very mu...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

True, but even I have to admit that there comes a point where you start questioning if it was worth it. For example, draft dialogue for the latest in-the-works chapter of my fic: Asuka: You really need to get another coat. Kaworu: Why? Asuka: Because this one is ugly as hell! I'm surprised it...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

Contrary to popular opinion, I can come up with decent ideas for the canonverse.

I just choose not to because AUs that deviate from canon are more fun.

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

There's not that much competition, actually. For one, Rei's not the type to do any kind of clingy wannabe girlfriend stuff you see in harem anime. For another, remember that they're in their early twenties here, which means no hormonal impulsive teenage crap. Shinji didn't change all that much from ...

Re: Darling in the Franxx (Studio Trigger)

A point I've seen raised elsewhere is that considering that Hiro could only pilot together with Zero Two and no one else, Ichigo having gotten rid of Zero Two is pretty much a death sentence for Hiro because he can't pilot and thus has outlived his usefulness. Ichigo might think she can leverage the...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

I'm thinking that Rei was moved out of there somewhere in the intervening years once the time to fetch the other pilots drew near.

Rei herself doesn't care either way, but Shinji very much does due to her... dressing habits at home.

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

There are fics, but I can't name any off the top of my head, much less good ones.

That said, I've been having this brainstorming of the story taking place when the pilots are in their early twenties and Shinji and Asuka get quartered at Rei's instead of Misato's.

Me too.

All my feels.

I mean, yeah, the plotline's not 100% original, but the execution is perfect. I just hope they don't fuck this up because this has the potential to be really good.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Last year, I brainstormed a bit on the Angels coming sooner due to inspiration by Pacific Rim. Specifically, early proto-Angels first started showing up in the late 1940s and were weak enough to be defeated with conventional military forces, but casualties were always so high that neither side of th...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Recent discussion of "what if the pilots were young adults instead of teens" made me think. How much would it change cast dynamics if Rei's biological age matched her chronological one, ie. prepubescent? No change in personality, just age, still goes to the same class as the others (hey, i...

Re: Sometimes all what you need is to take someone out...

Wouldn't work. Without serious character development, he's simply not pilot material; if anything, his attitude to piloting would be more like Asuka's than anyone else's, and we know how that's gonna end.

That "Shinji gets a wish fulfillment family composed of a dozen characters from different series, both western and anime" one.

Haven't actually read it, mind you; I didn't have the stomach to even finish the first chapter.

Re: Looking to Collab on a FanFic

Short answer? Several get destroyed. Much better. That being said... if I may suggest, portray their destruction as a very bad thing to NERV. Don't just narratively shrug it off like Unit 05's loss was in Rebuild, make it plain and clear that a catastrophic kill on even a single Eva is a MAJOR blow...

Re: Looking to Collab on a FanFic

Why so many? Who are you even going to put into them all? If you're gonna say "all the Evas get shipped to Tokyo-3" and "Hikari and Kensuke", I recommend against both. It's been done too many times and those two aren't pilot material. If you have any OC requests, I can help you o...

Kinda, but I won't have them overshadow the Angels as far as plot goes. Mark my words, though: when they do eventually appear, bad things will happen . Not bad by HL standards, bad by Eva standards . I may not write like Anno does, but I do know my roots and the audience will get a grim reminder tha...

Re: Looking to Collab on a FanFic

They ALL meet initially once at the age of 14 in Tokyo-3 (so summoned by :emogendo: ) before splitting up for the next 10 years. Wouldn't it be easier if they only meet at 24? I've been thinking on something in that regard earlier this day; namely, that Asuka and Rei aren't just trained, they're ac...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Let's see... Asuka has been training since childhood to be a pilot, so that might've caused her to develop such a deep metaphysical connection to her Eva that she can do this kind of pseudo astral projection thing Rei can in canon, despite being fully human. Maybe not intentionally or even conscious...
