"Well, Shinji-kun never asked, did he?

idea how much it sucks to be me? I'm supposed to have this beautiful womanly body that fluctuates between 40 and 200 meters in height, and this planet was supposed to belong to me and the kids, but I lost that duel and I went nappies. Leave it to those rascally Lilim to wake me up, violate my body, make me blow up in a really big way, and then put my disembodied soul into the unnatural hybrid bastard-child that resulted from aforementioned violation.
"Then, I get to be a reject kid who hatches from an egg in Seele's clutches, and this old guy named Keel calls me 'Kaworu Nagisa'. And I'm like, 'Whatever. Adam's not my real name, either.' Then, for fourteen horrible years, people look at funny because I'm kinda pale, and my eyes are red, and for other reasons of no particular consequence. My life is lonely, and isolated, and music is my only solace, and nobody understands me. Every morning I wake up, and I kind of wish I were dead or something, since I'm, like, supposed to be somebody else, you know?
"And then, when those Nerv people are finished relentlessly slaughtering my children using entities in my likeness -- how sick is that? -- I get to fulfill my purpose as 'Kaworu', and Papa Keel and those creepy guys he hangs around with send me off to do this, that, and the other. But in the process of accomplishing my mysterious directive, I meet that Ikari kid who everybody's always talking about. His mom -- now there's somebody who I can relate to... -- just so happens to be a very special Eva bridging me and Lilith. And his dad has my embryonic body in his palm, too. So I guess that kind of makes Shinji-kun 'family', doesn't it?
"But, yeah, what a great kid! We just hit it off like that. Hard to explain why, and most Lilim probably wouldn't understand anyway. I didn't have much time with Shinji-kun, but I tried to make the most of it. Mostly just spent being there for him and listening. So, naturally, I put the 'Oh, BTW, I'm a false vessel containing Adam's soul' bit on the side.
"Yeah, one could call the whole thing a bit of a personal dilemma. Put yourself in my place before you criticize, mmkay?"
Yeah. Sorta like that. Maybe.Originally posted on: 27-Mar-2006, 23:38 GMT
