Some ideas I had during the recent outage at SB and SV:

  • Rei isn't actually inhuman-looking with blue hair and red eyes, it's just a subconsciously-projected glamour on her Lilith part. Those who get emotionally close enough to her that Rei metaphorically lets them within her AT-field see her as a completely normal-looking girl - and the fact that even Gendo doesn't know that speaks volumes.
  • People already tossed around the idea of Gendo successfully recovering Yui into a Rei body, so I thought, what if he tried to achieve it via reverse-engineering Kyoko's attempt at fixing Yui's "accident" and the end result is Yui and Rei sharing a body as split personalities? Gendo's endgame plan is to permanently stick Yui into the body, which will technically kill Rei. Rei is fine with it, but Shinji very much isn't, with the amusing result of both Ikaris technically being after the same person but not the same personality.
  • Another idea for Evas being dual-piloted but this time, the arrangement is that one pilot operates the Eva itself, the other operates the Eva's AT-field, resulting in friction if one gets hurt because the other wasn't doing their job properly.

If you're talking about Sakura, why not do something with how Touji was apparently born twice?

Touji Suzuhara-kun was born on the 28th of July, 2001, and then born again five months later on the 26th of December.
What mysteries could this hide?

If we're talking about alternate piloting setups, here's something I came up with the other day:

A set of Evangeliæ was born from Adam's sleeping body. Eventually, for various reasons and by various powers, six units were produced, three male-female couples. Each of these was a proper Child of Adam, born with the Fruit of Life.
It was desirable for numerous reasons to prevent the deification that would occur if these Evangeliæ were to acquire the Fruit of Knowledge (which could be aquired through communication with an FoK being, psychic or otherwise). However, it was also desired to be able to command and use these Evas.
The solution was to tear the souls from the Evas and implant them in Lilin bodies. Initially the plan was to have each Lilin-incarnation pilot their own body- the two Fruits wouldn't technically be joined in the exact same being, and of course the Eva, being soulless, can't acquire the Fruit of Knowledge, so this should be fine. But the risk of deification was still great if the pilot merged with their body, so to discourage this the pilots were assigned to the body of their mate.

That is, each pilot pilots an Eva of the opposite sex, which is the proper body of their bride/groom.

Sounds a bit too shippy, but don't let that stop you.

One similar idea I had back in the day was that the reason behind the anomalous behavior of Unit 00 and Unit 01 is that Unit 00's core is actually Unit 01's and vice versa. Due to Unit 01 having been made directly out of Lilith's flesh rather than cloned, Unit 01 is so ungodly powerful that it tried to kickstart Third Impact every time NERV tried to turn it on and none of the restraints were strong enough to make it stop. They eventually had to resort to cutting out the core and slotting in a cloned Adamite core in its place to make the incompatible hardware, so to speak, throttle down Unit 01's power to manageable levels. This also turns out to work in the opposite direction: Zeruel trying to eat Unit 00 and ingesting Unit 01's original core in the process basically results in the Angel getting poisoned and incapacitated by the Lilim core's presence inside its body, allowing Unit 01 to overpower it and get her original core back.


Which in turn now gives me an idea originally inspired by a supplement for Adeptus Evangelion: Unit 01 isn't merely created out of Lilith, it IS Lilith, just armored up to make her look like an Eva. Which, unknown to Gendo, made his endgame plan impossible because Rei cannot merge back into Lilith due to Yui's presence unintentionally frakking up the process (which might not be so unintentional on Yui's part, mind you).

Does it make it any less shippy if the pilots/Evas in question have no relation to those we know, and are named Qain & Avan, Abel & Aqlima, and Seth & Azura?

I'm actually quite suspicious that Shogouki actually was intended to be Lilith armored up until quite late in the series' production.
