Re: Favorite Quotes

Charismatic leaders should come with a warning label: May be hazardous to your health. -Frank Herbert- In America, through pressure of conformity, there is freedom of choice, but nothing to choose from. -Peter Ustinov- If you who own the things people must have could understand this, you might pres...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

They found a joke contract someone uploaded onto the internet and used that, only to find out when they became teens that it was actually very much real as far as certain infernal powers are concerned. So now Shinji is stuck with Asuka owning his soul, rendering him incapable of piloting an Eva by ...

Re: [Music] Songs on repeat

I think Anders works fine for the material on MFKR, but it's kind of hard to say if he would've worked as well on later releases (I feel like he'd have probably been just as good as Corey on the first two albums, anything after that is pure conjecture just because of the stylistic departure from Vol...

Re: [Music] Songs on repeat

More albums than individual songs, but still... Last week or so, I've repeatedly listened to both Mr. Bungle 's self-titled album and Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat. by Slipknot . The former is pretty much the culmination of my experience with "weird" music (beginning at Primus, followed by Frank Z...

Re: Currently Playing 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!

^ Your comment isn't too far off the mark: Ion Fury was previously Ion Maiden (obvious Iron Maiden reference) when it was in Early Access (until some alleged legal trouble caused the name change) and either title for Powerslave / Exhumed (NTSC/PAL region naming, respectively) are metal references (t...

Re: Currently Playing 5: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder!

Been playing a lot of retro and nu-retro shooters the last month or so, I think I'm just experiencing some minor burnout with modern gaming. Here's a quick rundown of which ones, a-z order: - Amid Evil - Doom and Doom II (mostly using the Brutal Doom/Russian Overkill/Too Many Super Shotguns mods) - ...

Re: [Fic] Bardi's Works

I don't have an excuse not to get at least some stuff done, what with all the time freed up lately. Here's the first, The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret : FFN AO3 -music used during the writing of this story: R.E.M. 's "Country Feedback" on a constant loop. It's crazy what you could have had...

Re: Lemon Discussion Thread [try to keep it SFW~ish]

I've got a couple to recommend (both AsuShin, though you'd expect nothing less of me): Must I Spell It Out for You? (The explicit content only really starts a few chapters in) This might be my favorite fic to come out of the Rebuild movies. It's a real slow-burn type of thing, a lot of awkwardness a...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

I haven't read AsuShin in forever (let alone on FF Net since I'm on AO3 these days) but holy crap this was perfection: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12323263/1/Cracking-Skulls-and-Stealing-Hearts Oh yeah, that was a good one. Not top-shelf, but still solid all-round. Shame that the author seems to h...

Komi Can't Communicate / Miss Komi is Bad at Communication I don't know what rock I've been under to have missed this one. It may very well be the most adorable/wholesome thing I've ever encountered (manga-related, anyway). I only caught mention of it maybe...I dunno, two weeks ago, and I'm hooked....

Re: Dreams of a Distant God

I already left my thoughts over on FFN, but I'll reiterate here: This is excellent work, masterful even, and you should (rightfully) be proud of it. With some of the best AsuShin interactions I've read in a good long time, it's just so much fun to watch them work through the emotional barbed wire th...

Teotihuacan by Noel Gallagher (from The X-Files: Fight the Future soundtrack) I've listened to this song a lot over the last twenty years (when I first heard it over the movie's end credits), and there really is no finer piece to accompany an early-morning/late-night stroll through town (especially...

Hm, guess I just kept picking the timestamps that led to dead ends in my search. Thank you kindly. Sort-of on-topic: I've been lazily working (read: procrastinating) on something Hikari-centric that would go well here (it's the sequel to Shadowplay , definitely related to the last scene).

Okay, I stand corrected on that statement. :sweatdrop: Hmm, the Pancake Scene is missing...maybe my memory is too fuzzy about it... You're not mistaken, I definitely remember that part at the end (it was an epilogue/omake sort of thing). The one you linked says this is the R-rated version, so I gues...

I think I can answer this one. It's called I Used to Love Her , and it was written by Rakna (yeah, the TOILI... guy) way way way back when. I can't find a working link at the moment (Wayback Machine's not being very helpful), but I'm sure it's still up somewhere . Nothing ever remains completely los...

Well, actually... Only Kaworu, what Shinji saw at the karaoke bar/later that night in the bedroom and what he saw when leaving Misato's were "real" (though I would say that the head thing with Nagisa was more of a callback to 3.0): the ghost-Asuka that kicked the shit out of hi...

Re: [Fic] Bardi's Works

Thanks silver. As I said before in this thread, don't expect much from the pre-2010 stuff: those first four stories are unimpressive (though Somewhere Out There and I Won't Let You Fall Apart are tied to sequels that are much better).
