^Nah, man. The coolest part would be to see how differently you two approach it - make it awesome in your own way!

Hoo boy. I've not written fanfic in nine months. Time to strap in, hunker down, and wrangle some fanfiction. :headdesk:

Heck, we could do both: two independent stories, and a third co-authored. Skype me tomorrow, Nuke. My people will talk to your people.

The more Misato/Maya fics there are, the better. It's strikes me as something similar to what a Mari/Shinji pairing would be like, but with a couple small character differences. Gentlemen, I wish you luck with your efforts.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I actually kinda want in on this. Maybe not writting (I have done fanfics too you know... just not for eva, at least not that I've published) but just as a sounding board? It was my idea guys, come on.

I can usually see the possibilities with various rare pairings, but somehow I'm not really seeing it with Maya/Misato. Can someone enlighten me with the relationship dynamics more clearly? I did see your post Guy Nacks, but still ain't feeling it. Maya is the part where I have an issue - too bland to me -o-;

Start with Misato/Shinji dynamics. take away issues of age/guardianship and make Shinji a girl. You're 90% of the way there already.

Plus the Chemical X factor of "forbidden (but right) lesbian love", which is always a big plus.

Aight.

So Maya has a fixation with Ritsuko. What does she like in her? For one, she's a computer nerd and values Ritsuko's knowledge immensely. Misato is a big failure here. But wait! Maya loves a strong goal-oriented woman, someone that can hold the floor and give direction. Misato definitely can win that front!
So... what could Misato 'mentor' Maya in? Surely something that isn't sex... that's sounds so generic. How can Misato win that "Senpai!" title?!

Edit: So this just hatched in my mind. Perhaps Maya isn't a good driver and prefers to use the subway. Misato, however, is the wild one that loves and feel of the winding road. Imagine Misato trying to teach Maya how to drive professionally, or just have genuine conversations whilst on the road in that sexy blue car. Hrm....

Step 1: Gender swap for every male character across the board.
Step 2: Profit.
Step 3: More profit.

There's two things I see in starting it: the first is the removal of Kaji, either in he is unable to arrive with Asuka, or (this might be better) he does, his presence disrupts Misato's equilibirum, and then he's back off into the wild blue yonder to do his spook activities.

The second is that, somehow Maya's perception of Ritsuko needs to be shaken (hard to do, because I have the suspicion that Maya was willingly keeping a lot of skeletons tucked into her closet for Ritz's sake). She has to have a crisis of faith as it were.

Which leads to some sort of opportunity for the two of them to be together, like stuck on an elevator. They talk, Misato complains down at Maya, etc. More opportunities for them to encounter each other in a friendly environment (superior/subordinate, which evolves into mentor/student)....

I think I have a game plan for my story, at least. Now we need to have a Skype party for the big one!

Maybe we need a fourth fic in here. A fic written by Evageeks as a whole.

I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

(actually, secretly "Senpai, teach me how to use alcohol to become more forward-going in order to hook up with girls!")
