But they didn't really meet in Q...

They were both plugged up and the entire time Asuka was near Eva-13 Kaworu was preoccupied with the spears while Asuka was yelling at Shinji. She didn't really care who was the 2nd person in there.

Honestly it's not a meeting unless it's face to face. :\

As previously noted shipping involves AUs by default, so who cares if they never met? Between AUs and the ATE radio show it's not like there's any lack of material to work with.

Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

Yes yes I know canon or even logic need not apply when transporting goods across maritime passages. I was just getting slightly off thread course regarding what I consider a proper meeting (because it has come up int he past, ie Mari only meeting Shinji face to face once). Sorry about that.

Which was why I qualified it as "until last November" -- Q did what all the other AUs haven't, and kept them apart, even though both were functional at the same time.

I personally ship them, exactly because they never met.

I never considered this ship, but the more I think about about the more I warm up to it.
Kaworu would interact with his intellect and naiveness, which would probably bother Asuka at first, but after a while I'd imagine she'd get used to it and enjoy the support and comfort he would give her.
I'm leaning more towards the "pillar of support" idea of them than "they look hot together" (not saying they don't ;) )

Even though this thread is horrid blasphemy and it is commanded "Thou shalt not suffer the bishonen to live" one must admit that their character designs are naturally complementary.

I mean, if anything I could understand ReixKaworu fan fics popping up all over the place since AsukaxShinji are like the known duo and Rei's all by herself and they're both angelic and whatnot, but- Asuka and Kaworu?

When did all this get started? They seriously do not even remotely look good together. Sorry Mr. Tines xD


It's a common thing amongst anime fans, as long as two characters are in the same anime you'll find some people who "ship" them, it's kinda weird.

It is nice that fans start their own stories and such, and cross over characters that would never interact in canon, but that's kinda wasted potential imo, why not spend that time creating fiction and art with original characters?...

At least there's the proof they met somewhere.

But doesn't that response reveal the KS ship for what it is: completely shallow and meaningless?

Then leave the poor Asuka alone, you say Shinji is the right guy? Don't make me laugh!
