[Fic] You Can (Not) Run Away

Hey fellas. It's 3am where I'm at and I'm slowly losing my ability to give a shit anymore. Anyway, as I stew away in my pit of despair, I'd like to present unto you all a little project I've been dabbling at for a few months now.

For a little backstory (there's also a bit of information at the A/N I leave at the bottom of each chapter if you're interested), I conjured this idea of putting ol' Shinji-kun in a wheelchair because of two inspirations:
1. Johnny Joestar - protagonist in Steel Ball Run which is essentially an AU of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
2. I got my physical issues, and I've even been numbed from the waist down at one point.

I thought it would be interesting to mess up Shinji's life a bit more, considering that some fics tend to go in the opposite direction and try giving him a superpower or whatever (though I'm not saying that's entirely a bad thing).

Another thing to note is that I'm trying to keep it as *authentic as I can while adding a bit of my own twist to the original storyline. The primary reason is to limit any sort of external factors other than Shinji's obvious impairment that would otherwise affect how the story unfolds. And, you know, it's pretty neat to throw a curveball in the story and see how it goes or whatever. Sorry if these first chapters are incredibly boring, it's going to take a while to warm up both the content as well as my writing style (I've been writing too many essays that are, frankly, dry and immensely uninteresting at times).

If you like it- fantastic, I love you.

If you don't, well that's fine too.

I read the first part of that fanfic, but haven't got to the further chapters yet. I think it's a pretty interesting concept. I'd like to see how differently things would turn out with Shinji being in a wheelchair.

Oh jeez, I was completely caught off-guard to see something posted in my thread :tongue: thanks for the read!

Yeah, obviously my biggest issue is how I'm approaching the storyline with Shinji physically (and emotionally) handicapped, and I've reworked this concept several times over now. I apologize for the slow start and how it too closely resembles the show as the beginning is very difficult at properly alter since it provided a good introduction into what I wanted. I can assure you that from hereon I'll be taking the steps to change the direction of this given the new few chapters.

Its a weird feeling that having Shinji being disabled actually somehow makes me more optimistic for him.

That's a nice attitude to have.

I wonder how Asuka will interact with Shinji with him being in a wheelchair, and his reason for piloting an EVA is for him to be able to walk instead of seeking praise from his father.
Hopefully, she'll treat him a bit nicer than she did in the series.

Been reading this I really like it and I think Shinji being in a wheelchairs adds a lot of stuff to the retelling also Asuka's reaction to him when they first meet was spot on as thats kind of what I'd expect her to say with out realizing how damaging those words are. I also like that Shinji being wheel chair bound forces Misato to act less childish and be a better care giver to him.

This isn't an update to the story itself, but I just really felt like sharing this quick doodle I made for the later parts of the narrative. It's incomplete because 1. it's a sketch 2. I don't know what I want the head to look like.

This is a little teaser of what I plan on adding to the story, eventually.

This is not Unit 01. This is Unit 01' (Unit 01 Prime) wielding a new weapon, the Progressive Sword with Shinji below it for size comparison.

SPOILER: Show
Image

Description: A lumbering titan, Evangelion Unit 01' is the evolved form of Unit 01. The armor has been almost completely rebuilt to compensate for its increased performance weighing nearly twice as much as the original set of iconic purple and green. The energy radiating from Unit 01' is so powerful, steam often dissipates from the holes located on the front of its rib plates. Although he doesn't realize it, this action is often synchronized with Shinji's breathing as his synch ratio rises.

Progressive Sword: A blade worthy of the gods and rightfully wielded by the Evangelions. Although not entirely exclusive to Unit 01 or Unit 01', it is the weapon most often paired with the colossus.
