How much more do you have left for the story?

There'll still be an audience for it. Readership will probably increase along with the likely flood of Rebuild stories that will be put out after the final film.
Amarantos - an NGE AU, beginning with Asuka, Shinji, and a garden. Take a look. Couldn't hurt.

By my estimate it's around four chapters or so. Then again, there have been times where I intended to have certain events happen in a complete chapter only to split it up into multiple when I get to writing it.

That's what the people I've talked to about this said as well. If they're all saying it, there must me something to it. My great fear is that the people who have been reading will develop this "Why eat hamburger when you could get steak?" attitude to my story when the final movie comes out. I'm also afraid that, as I don't know exactly how I'm going to end it (I have figured it out in broad swaths only), that I will be unduly influenced by the events of the movie when it comes out. Since I'm a mod, I'll have to know spoilers if I am going to be monitoring the Rebuild subforums when it is released.

While I can't speak with any certainty, I'm pretty sure that your readership will increase following the release of Shin. You might lose some readers but gain others; the continuation fic crowd might decrease, while the people loving canon divergence/alternate ending fics might increase. Also, the movie ending will most likely be relatively divisive, if EoTV and EoE are any indication, which means that people will want some (different) form of closure.

I know that I will not complete the story before Thrice Upon A Time is released, and I'm not 100% sure they'll be an audience for it after that film is out. I've had conversations with some people on the subject and they assured me that people will still want to read it, so I'm not too pessimistic. I also have to take into consideration that my relationship with the Eva franchise has changed since I first started this tale, and while that relationship has changed for the better, I feel at the same time that this story, and fanfiction in general, is a lesser part of it. In any event, I will try to complete another chapter before the movie comes out, or if not, by the weekend of release. After that, we'll have to see.


I actually need to catch up! Work has been keeping me so busy this year I've not been able to keep on top of reading or writing but there absolutely will be an audience for the story after Thrice comes out. Just like there is an audience for the many fics that deviate from points of the original story as well. You have written a great piece of work, so it'll definitely stand up :)
