But my biggest of all is people claiming Re-Take is worthy enough to be EoE's ending or BETTER than Anno. Retake is just a fanfic and porn. Nothing more. People have recommended it to newcomers and gets special treatment when it doesn't deserve it.
I don't think you should diss something based on it having sex scenes - There's an all ages version with the story still intact, ans Sex IS a part of human life like any other, especially if you're writing a goddamn romance story.
Other than that, I completely agree with the better than cannon/special treatment of FReTake. It's awfully paced, has obvious character bashing in it and gets rather twillight-esque at times - It's a mediocre fanfic. Perhaps an above average one if your personal taste says so, but it essentially missed the whole point of EoE.
Also, I don't think that anyone
(correct me with links if I'm wrong) acftually claimed that what Shinji did was in any way "good" or "okay" - that's a completely different thing from claimings it's understandable/realistic under the circumstances. Regardless of wether you agree with that, it's just a very distinct claim.
