Re: Did anything interesting happen on September 13th 2000?

To answer the main question -- if there were any fan-events on the day, they've not left any "legendary fan event" legacy. Japanese records of the day may well have been lost, like much other material has been. Anno's Gerry Anderson fanboy is on display all over NGE, as can be seen from th...

Re: Asuka as a genius in fanfiction

I attempted to bring out that side of her character in the major fix-fic I wrote, being a mix of my recollections of my own teenage years, and a side of being MC, rather than nerfed by being MC's foil, and thus able to do her thing.

Re: Shin Eva's Indefinite Delay Support Group

In the years since they announced Evangelion FINAL/3.0+1.0, we've gone from not having widespread font support for the musical notation character in the title to it "just working" in normal conditions. One abnormal condition, however, is this old-school forum software which rejects extende...

Re: Shin Eva's Indefinite Delay Support Group

Had this been a normal year, I would now be bleary-eyed having pulled a near all-nighter moderating the carnage, if Q's reception and the number of spoiler-averse staff is anything to go by. As it is, I still have that joy ahead of me.

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

The moral impression I received from this movie is, “If you have mental illness, you’ll have an absolutely miserable life.” Not so much that, as "If you make no effort to help yourself, then don't be surprised if your world goes to hell all around you." Far from decisively accepting himse...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

After having a nightmare a week ago that I was Shinji starting the Third Impact, I’m afraid I’m on the verge of snapping. In the immediate aftermath of watching EoE hard on the heels of watching the series, my self-directed therapy was in the form of writing fix-fics. Taking back control and nudgin...

Re: End of Evangelion Traumatized Me

EoE is non-stop emotional bludgeoning. It's watching like one of those murder suicides where even the pets get battered to death -- only this one didn't have the suicide.

I still see it as a cautionary tale with a bad end, in deliberate contrast to the TV ending.

Re: Evangelion ANIMA (general)

I've not quite finished the second volume now, but already I can see bits that leaked out into Q. Enough new curves get thrown in at a rate of pretty much one every other page (rather along the lines of A.E. Van Vogt's 800-Word Rule) that if it's not strictly off the rails right now, sticking the la...

Re: Blatherings on a trip to Japan. A travelogue from the BC era

Sounds like a great holiday, except for the work interruptions. Wish I could still contemplate such things. I found that taking a fortnight off was always the wrong thing to do -- just enough time for things to go pear-shaped and not recover. Do a week and things can be put off for your return, or d...
