(Not) the End wrote:Another Eva AU. The Angels are late, the Eva series finally finished. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean life's any nicer to poor Shinji Ikari, thanks to terrifying monsters, semi-psychotic Brits, and countless other problems. Hopefully, this is as bad as it gets. Probably not. Contains sarcasm, bloody combat, liberal cussing, and awkward hormone stuff.

Hello there, everyone! It's me, Fyrstorm, again! I though I'd take the time to share my main story with you all-- a lovely little rewrite known as (Not) the End! The concept is simple-- in a universe similar to Eva Canon, the Angels have held off for two years. The story begins with the awakening of the Fourth Angel... and a sixteen year old trying to figure out what the hell his father wants with him. Things go from there.
During my conception of this idea, my primary thoughts can be mostly summed up (as I remember them) as:
- "What sort of character interactions/development/etc. can I make feasibly happen with more pilots and two years of stewing and hormones thrown in?"
- "Let's see if I can feasibly give these poor kids a better end than EoE with a few more years under their belts." (Yes, I'm aware that a lot of Eva fics do this-- I just wanted to try my own hand at a semi-feasible one, given what plays out in the story)
- "I'm going to write a serious Eva fanfic that isn't incredibly OC-heavy and poorly scraped together!" (R.I.P. Messenger of the New Century, you will most certainly not be missed)
- and a little bit of "I really want to see the characters like this." (generally more mentally/socially developed, that is)
This is the result.
As of current, I have 36 out of approximately 75 chapters finished, plus an additional 60 chapters planned for the sequel.
Please read, enjoy, and review! Thank you!
