My thoughts:

The scene in Episode 5 of Gendo and Rei talking happily is the exception, not the rule. The only time Gendo ever smiles is when some viul scheme or another is going his way, and Rei only smiles in his presence one other time. In every other circumstance where they're in the same room, they're not smiling. Also, let's not forget that Unit 01 can show Shinji whatever the hell she wants to show him, regardless of whether or not it's actually there...

I think the contact experiment where Gendo "rescued" Rei sort of gave her the wrong idea about him for a few weeks; and when Shinji "rescues" her in episode 6, she sees Gendo's face not to compare the situations, but to contrast them: she realizes that Gendo only cared about her physical safety ("Are you okay?" "Yeah, sure" *coughs up blood* "Right...") because of her importance in his twisted plot to cause Third Impact, while Shinji cared about her as a person. From that moment onward, she was pretty much into Shinji and not Gendo.

Now this is a new theory

Actually, I noticed it many months ago and brought it to the attention of a few other people on a different forum. It doesn't seem to be catching on, though. Hmm...

New string maybe? Whethere pilots perceptions through the eva are the way things really are? Interesting.

Obviously one for bumping... You can see how my "How I Came To Know Rei" thread was all Shin-seiki's fault. Image

If 'archaic' is a bad thing, better go off and tell all of those paleontologists, archaeologists, and connoisseurs of old crap that they're wasting their time. Image

But seriously, there's some good stuff in here.

I mean, many older ideas are dicussed there that could be confusing for others.

Although, SUPPOSEDLY, these really WILL be archived somewhere, one day, so future generations of Eva fans will get to benefit from my obsessive bumping. I will be damned glad when I can stop.

The real tragedy is that no matter if you try ever so hard, and are ever so vigilant, some threads are bound to slip away, that were worthy of preservation. You can't be everywhere, afterall. Image

You do so much, to preserve the work that has been done, but the system works against you every single day.

Hey, I bump too! Image ...not as much, but any progression is good as far as I'm concerned. I just bumped one I thought was good, Commentary Research.

Yeah, this was a good thread (if it's the one I was thinking of... which I don't know if it is) I'd say my reasons why I don't think Rei was in love with Gendou but I've probably already said them.

Hmmm....It looks like we won't be hearing about Serai any more. Not that we have recently.

Well, there is always the manual approach of stepping through each page and going File > Save As...

Bumped to preserve Uber Director's bizarre Rei theories. They have to be seen to be believed.
