Short story: "Bearing Light" (NGE with adults in t

There's a random part-time writer/blogger type online named Paul Burgess, who happens to be an NGE fan. Interestingly enough, when he was in college, he wrote a story named "Bearing Light", which I've found to be very similar in some ways to NGE.

Similar themes I realized:

* The protagonist is from a post-apocalyptic world.

* The apocalypse, unlike your typical nuclear war, results in the survivors undergoing a collective traumatic mindfuck.

* The surprisingly well-preserved technological state of the gov't leads to the creation of almost supernatural tech that is used in activities with alien entities.

* It is a Faustian bargain.

* Sex sex undertones. Additionally; cryptic.

If anyone bothers to read this, I'll paste some correspondence I've had with the author after I expressed the hidden similarities with Eva.
