I feel Rebuild fanfic that ships Asuka and Shinji to be very unrealistic. Given the circumstances at the end of the movie.

Rebuild is a weird place anyway, but yeah, shipping in that verse without a lot of struggle/reconciling feels cheap and unbelievable. But how do your reconcile stuff in fanfic if you don't know what the hell is supposed to be reconciled in the first place? What is everyone's struggle and why?

There's plenty to work with, actually - see my post-Q fic (though that doesn't have an A-S ending).

Or maybe you feel my solution is cheap and unbelievable, in which case I can only apologise for disturbing you...

Sure, plenty to work with, the difficulty is how to write it without the story reading as contrived?

And considering Afterwards put in the time and effort to achieve reconciliation, I'd say it mostly falls out of range of my comment, yeah? Doesn't matter much anyway. You can't please everybody, so don't take it personally.

Thanks - I guess I over-reacted a bit. Of course, there also has to be a lot of guesswork, especially as the story is unfinished - so I don't expect the true ending which is on its way to have much, if anything, in common with mine!

Define "happy" in the context. It may also be necessary to define "ending" as well, as there are any number of short pieces of WAFFy fluff set somewhere mid-series, before it all comes tumbling down.

Most of my works tend to have go towards a good/happy ending. I enjoy the WAFF train when it comes to fics :tongue:

Then it's not the ending. It's a moment of respite that will be demolished soon enough.

This seems like your pace. I have no idea if it's anywhere close to being done, but the ending is sure to be the kind you're looking for.

Well, there's always JimmyWolk's The Second Try, and its sequel Aki-Chan's Life, which is just plain adorable.
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

Please yourself. Shinji ends up content enough in my story, though it also acknowledges that his experience has been of the kind that leaves scars which never completely fade.

Dude, don't let him get to you. He talks the talk, but it's just hot air.

And there are plenty of Eva fics where there are Happy Endings. RE-TAKE is a primary example of a happy ending being earned. :) And while there are some deaths, each have a meaning to the rest of the story and don't leave you in a depressive funk.

And any of the Doujinshi by Pengel, like Happy End of Evangelion, or Epilogue of Evangelion, are all warm and fuzzy. :)

Ghosts of Evangelion by Bagheera though fair warning the ending will give you mayor feels and it does show the characters coming to terms with there issues post EOE.

There are quite a few out there. TV Tropes tends to have a good collection of stories in the 'Recs' page that have solid and comfortable endings, and there are quite a few fan-ficcers here with pleasing stories (a few of them responded to you, and they have great stories).

Also, Ghosts is definitely a satisfying story.
