Random thing Reichu wrote on ANF wrote:I've got it!
For every week that Shin-seiki procrastinates on his NGE-geek projects, Shinji masturbates at an unconscious Asuka's bedside. Twice if it's an especially bad week. "Tasukete... Tasukete, Asuka..."
(Should the above post about working on the site be "fixed" and applied to you instead? ;) Just joking, I know how hetic and busy life can get... Hell, I'm at college as I type this!)
Anyway, I'd say that scene shows how Maya is in denial about her true feelings for her "senpai", and it does seem that even throughout the series it's hinted (well, hinted probably's not the right word, but whatever) that Maya has feelings for Ritsuko.
For instance, three scenes that come to mind are:
~episode 14 when Ritsuko says that can go ahead and do the Dummy Plug System, who adds something about how "You'll be uncaring when you feel like you've be sullied." (I can't remember the exact quote), while Maya looks upset, possibly because she feels bad how Ritsuko's treated??)
~And in 22/22', after Ritsuko says...something to Maya in terms of Asuka (about working on zerogoki instead?), Maya looks upset, maybe disappointed that her senpai can act so cold??
~Also, the scene with Kaji of Maya scuttles away whilst red-faced seems to be a pretty good clue. ;)
It's times like this I wish I had screencaps.
So is it true that AWL called Maya a "dyke" in the Commentary of Evil?
*smacks AWL* Don't say such nasty things about Maya! (Y'know, one of those words were it depends on the person if they think it's offensive or not...)
I think it's odd how there are such Maya/Shinji fics out there.... At least with the other pairings (A/S, Misato/S, Rei/S) it makes sense in a way!
Though I think Ritsuko/Shinji would be another weird one...
Ha, that reminds me of this one H-fic series were each chapter has Shinji paired with a different female member of the cast...Including Kyoko/Shinji (WTF?) and Yui(!!)/Shinji.... (Wonder what the author would do about Rei-chan then...Probably just say it's "Naoko"....)
