Does anyone practice any form of cross-canon self shipping (ie Asuka Soryu x Asuka Shikinami)? Seems like it could make for some interesting angles, if cracktastic.

Probably for the same reason people ship literally everyone with literally everyone else

In the decade since Shikinami was established, I'm amazed that no fanfic writers have ever attempted having Soryu/Shikinami interact and/or show up in each other's universes. To my knowledge, that concept hasn't appeared in a single decent fanfic.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

That would be one hell of an interesting fic to read. I'd imagine it would be like the movies The Parent Trap, and Face Off being combined in some convoluted, yet hilarious fashion. It would only be made even funnier if Shinji where to be fought over as some sort of prize, and of course for him to be the only person to constantly confuse one for the other.

It has been done in fanart before. Would be interesting to see it in fanfic, tho.

^^^ There was one somewhere over on FFN, but the title escapes me at the moment. Sadly, it's been at least a few years since any update. So...yeah, it's a dead end. Shame that, it was actually kinda funny (and things were not going well for Shinji...not that that's hard to imagine).

Also, while we're on the subject: Asuka NGE x Asuka NME? Yeah, I'd ship it all around the high seas.

Huh, that might be interesting... also, I feel sorry for anyone getting withing a proximity of 10 meters of them

10 meters is an interesting choice of measurement. IS that because its withing Asuka's throwing distance?

I'm gonna assume he meant 100 metres and forgot a 0, since that would place you outside their line of sight.

On the same train of thought, imagine NGE Kaji meeting Misato as of 3.33. Age aside, the changes in personality would seem staggering to him. The same could be true in reverse for Asuka Soryu and 2.22 Shinji.

Still seems too close to the fallout from their inevitably violent encounter.

Just be grateful neighbouring of them is Adam. When it got angry 1000 KILOMETRES wasn't far enough.

Which reminds me... seeing as the Angels are human, why leave them out of shipping. Admit it, Rei x Sachiel has some appeal.

Ive seen Sachiel being reimagined as Rei (or is it the other way around...? Whatever, Sachiel-XX), which was kinda cute, but I have not seen anyone actually ship them xD

Well, as long as no one ships Rei and Ramiel, cause that wouldn't work too well, and let's not even mention Armisael, cause that would also get awkward and tentacle-y.

I mean Arael x Asuka is technically canon so I don't see a problem with Armisael x Rei.

I have actually seen somebody do just that. It was around the time where I kinda stopped caring whopeople ship with whom

^ I'm sure it's been done with most of the Angels/humans by this point. The internet is a wide and weird place, after all...and some folks seem to think that Rule 34 is some kind of commandment or something, like 'if it can be done, it will be done'.
