Post is up!

I couldn't remember Miki's rank, so I made her a captain. Probably wrong but what the hell.

Raglan entered the kitchen with a look of mild concern on his face. “What's up, Takatsuki?” he asked. She hesitated, and looked down. Although she knew exactly what she wanted to say, she found that trying to put it into words, to express it, was not only difficult, but insurmountable. Thankfull...

Eh, the basic beats of the story will remain the same. Shinji might be a girl and Misato might be a rugged possibly-bisexual older dude, but the former will still be waiting by a phone booth in the first scene, and the latter will still be late.

While I was in the shower, I struck upon a brilliant idea for an Eva fanfic along the lines of this proposal . But, instead of using William Gibson as the base, we'd be rewriting Evangelion as a YA genre fiction novel, a la The Hunger Games or Divergent . Shinji becomes female, because these hyp...

Currently reading Little, Big by John Crowley. I see a lot of ideas he would later use in Ægypt in utero, so to speak—the "Art of Memory", in particular. I also find it amusing that, while Pierce Moffett's physical appearance is an inversion of Crowley's, Smoky Barnable as describe...

On the subject of that one continuity error, I'm just gonna say that the show overrides all other sources. Clearly both can't be correct, so the Chronicle has to be wrong. ISTR something about the order of a couple of episodes shortly after Asuka's arrival being swapped about in producti...

Yes, but Tines's assertion was that had he not done so, SEELE would have gone ahead with their own Third Impact—i.e., Gendo would have allowed it to happen.

That's an excuse, isn't it? He knew about SEELE. He had contacts, he had influence. The only reason I can see for going along with their plans is the necessity of fighting the Angels. After that? It's a conscious decision not to fight back, to allow Instrumentality to go through.

Did he show up in Shinji's Instrumentality? No? Well, there you go, then. He showed up with everyone else in episodes 25 and 26. Not in EoE, 'cept for that one image, but in EoE Instrumentality is literally about "sex and Asuka", so... After Rei II dies Shinji definitely thinks he...

I'd also think she was the closest thing I had to a friend, since Misato just tried to hit on me and Rei was . . . something about my mom? And anyway very much Not Rei. So yeah, Asuka's very confusing, and painful, but she's still the person I trust the most because even though she'...

The fact that it's not malicious means it's not bullying by definition, since malicious intent is central to what the word means. And, really, if you want to get down to it...how do you define "malicious"? Hurting people for the sake of hurting them? Or simply wanting to hurt othe...

Seriously, just making the claim doesn't make it true. Gob at least had the courtesy to put forth some effort on the matter, but you and Introvert are just saying "this is obviously true and your argument sucks, so there" and that doesn't work. What is needed to make the argument ...

Apart from Kaworu being an Ikunara-expy Ikuhara's not gay. He has a wife, you know... and the original episode 24 drafts Which Anno didn't write, and purposefully altered into what we see in the final version. and the related June magazine interview. Which says that Kaworu is Shinji's i...

I'd love to get right back in the swing of things, but I have completely forgotten where we were. Any kind soul willing to recap the plot thus far?
