I know, just didn't want to say it due to spoilers.

And I think I probably missed that part about Misato becoming Slaanesh, 'cause I honestly remember nothing of the sort. Don't go ahead quoting it, though! :lol:

Woops, I forgot about the spoilers! -o-;

And no, I didn't read the fic, I read about it on TV Tropes a while ago.

Then you understand why I felt uneasy while reading it. Sure, I always write my characters acting out-of-character when compared to canon because it's more fun that way but what this fic did with Shinji is still... I don't know, it just feels wrong.

And I'm fully aware how hypocritical that statement is from my mouth.

Thousand Shinji, and everyone else, gets the characters associations wrong.

Shinj would fall to Khorne. Asuka would fall to Nurgle. Rei would fall to Slaanesh.

Mine own Crisis of Infinite Shinjis has a Chaos Shinji that

SPOILER: Show
falls when the Emperor, who arrived to reclaim him during EoE, refused to help Asuka, whose mind and body had been damaged beyond repair by his constantly forcing her to be his waifu with his psychic powers. All the while he was repressing memories that he murdered most of the rest of the cast in a psychotic killing spree driven by the daemon whispering to him. The daemon was waiting for him to confront any enemy who could force him to realize this, to turn him to Nurgle. In his despair he slaughters his own Legion, raises them as zombies and vanishes into the immaterium to take vengeance on Chaos itself.

I was planning to paint a tabletop army with this theme but time, money, space, yadda yadda yadda

Actually a Misato Slaanesh would be awesome. She doesn't eat your soul, she just drinks all your beer, sings very bad karaoke, throws up on your floor and falls asleep with the great Keeper of Secrets Pen'Pen'Waark taking a nap on her boobs.

Either that or Pen-Pen becomes Doomrider, taking a daemonic motorcycle and riding through Tokyo-3 with a trail of fire following him, his plumage ablaze, squawking "I DO COOOOOCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINE".

Someone, or something,alien decides to put a nice little monkey wrench in SEELE/Gendo's plans.
The extraterrestrials can be anything, from the colonists from the X-Files to a Special Circumstances agent from Banks' Culture books.

Earth vs. any advanced spacefaring civilization with half a brain to use the ultimate higher ground would be a slaughter, and while I despise SEELE and Gendo quite a bit I really do not see why the rest of the species should have to get exterminated for them and their cronies to die and for their plans to be ruined.
Hence the mention of the colonists and SC, they prefer to use the asimetric approach and to limit the direct confrontation.
Think quality spy thriller not low-grade action movie about alien invasion. :D

That said, the need for EVA/cheesy alien invasion movie, IT BURNS US, IT BUUUURNS!

Eva set in a completely different cultural mileu. Preferably medieval Japan. The characters are the same and the Evas are still there (just have them be grown in the corners of temples or found buried beneath shrines), but their interactions and development are of course different because society. Hell, or perhaps Second Impact occured, almost as bad as in the series, and Seele still leads some bizarre 16th-century global alliance.

Isn't there a fic with the events of NGE taking place in 1915? That looks a lot like what you're talking about.

I started one in WW2, with Unit 02 being presented by Hitler at a Nazi rally, and then the Enola Gay escorted by Zeros bombing the Third Angel..... Alan Turing and Ritsuko Akagi with the Magi system taking up entire warehouses of vacuum tubes.

But the rest of the concept was utter shit. It was nothing beyond a setting change and not sustainable for a story.

Continuing the Alien invasion tangent; I've yet to see a good Eva/XCOM crossover. It needs to happen at some point.

Sounds awesome, however SEELE, being the illuminati/trilateral/Freemason expy they are, would have likely managed to get their claws into X-COM since the day it was founded.
I would have loved to see a crossover with Prototype or Resident Evil myself, one where Umbrella is run by a shadowy cabal opposed to SEELE's plans, or where Blackwatch, with all their shadow government black helicopter secret weapons goodness, fanaticism and machismo is going after the old men full force. :wink:

I've been thinking a bit about a crossover with Earth 2150. NERV would be operated and funded by the Lunar Corporation, just for the sake of messing around with Shinji by putting him into a society that values women far more than men to the point where even Rei would be of a higher position in the social pecking order than, say, Kaji. And it would give the phenomenon of Hikari constantly hawking over the stooges an entirely new meaning.

Of course, Gendo would be getting a lot of flak and distrust from his superiors (the public ones, not SEELE) for not being a woman, with everyone wondering how did he get his position in the first place (SEELE, obviously). And the LC is the only faction in this universe I can clearly see building something like an Eva, considering that in only ten years from having forsaken peace and entered war out of necessity, they were canonically caught red-handed at researching mind control and studying alien lifeforms for use as biological weaponry (though said lifeforms were biological weapons to begin with, with Wunder-style biomechanical airships to boot). Does that last part sound familiar?

As for the universe integration, Eva canon has Second Impact at the South Pole altering Earth's axial tilt; the Earthverse has massive nuclear detonations at the North Pole knocking the Earth onto a decaying orbit around the Sun - which is flat-out impossible to achieve with nuclear weapons without burying the entire planet in radioactive fallout, to say nothing of the sheer number of nukes needed (several orders of magnitude more than what was produced throughout all of history combined). Maybe the nuke-shower was only a cover-up for Second Impact, much like the relativistic meteorite in Eva canon?

Sounds like Gasaraki. It was set in the modern day, but it had mecha from the feudal era that were grown by magic.
