His stories are basically all well-written and run the gamut between happy to bittersweet to "where's the brain bleach, I don't want to remember this". The later examples, you might have to look beyond FF for some of them, are some of the most...difficult to read fics in eva that aren't written purely for shock value like certain aquatic themed author.


Funny how (relatively) recent this reply is as Kadmon just posted a new oneshot that showed that he does, in fact, still got it (in terms of making dark and depressing stuff). But yeah, I've heard about what the original Witness is actually about, what Second Other is about, what I Knew Him When is about, and I believe that he's fully capable of what his reputation has told me (and tbh I'm not sure I want to see them for myself lol).

SPOILER: Show
As for his new story, Adrift, yeah the master of dark and depressing reveals has returned. Story starts off pretty idyllic and slice of life-esque with a nice little insight into this AU version of the world and characters, with few hints sprinkled here and that something has clearly gone wrong for this version of Shinji. As the story continues, it gets more and more into Shinji's depressive state and how that affects his view of his friends and family while giving more and more details to the point that you can more or less piece together what probably happened that led to Shinji's current state. Then in the last act the plot ramps up in speed and starts revealing much more about the events, so much so that you'll probably end up missing a bunch on the first read through, while at the same time not giving away too much explicitly. And finally the story ends with a scene that ties all the disparate bits of info together, re-contextualizes it all to make it all make sense with one last major reveal, and gets the dubious honor of being the first thing I've read in awhile that left me feeling genuinely horrified and nauseous (which I guess was the point so....good job?).

So yeah, overall solid story; characters and world felt very grounded and real, prose and dialogue were strong as always with Kadmon, and I ended up feeling depressed by the end of it. So I guess I did end up getting the classic Kadmon experience afterall. Yay? ((also to whoever's reading this, if you still haven't read Patient but somehow have read this story, I'd say now would be a good time to read that one))

If were talking about recommendations, do you guys know some good fics were Asuka tries to help Shinji overcome his traumas in some of the post EOE ones? The ones I can think of is Unbroken and You are (not) at fault, and I’m wondering if there’s some others like it.

In recent and ongoing things, there's Somewhere to Hide by Darkbluezero.
In short: in the chaos of the post-3I world as people started to come back and governments try to manage everything back to normal, Shinji and Asuka managed to slip under the radar and are trying to rebuild their life in a village under false names.
Author mentioned that the story will be as a series of vignettes depicting them trying to help each other overcome their traumas and rebuilding their life. First chapter (and only one so far) is about Asuka helping Shinji dealing with his guilt over triggering Instrumentality.

I vaguely recall there were some rather old fanfics where Misato is de-aged back into a teenager, and she gets romantically involved with Shinji (who's now her physical age). All I could find from my search is Misato's Second Childhood by gunman and successive attempts at continuing/rewriting it by a couple of other authors.

Does anyone know of another fic that fits the profile?

Any interesting fanfictions going on? Maybe something fresh, cross-over free?

I remember reading Last Child of Krypton and Age of Marvels years ago, both by Chuckman. I love superhero crossover fics, and I was always found it curious nobody had done a fic combining Evangelion with Spider-Man. Especially with Peni Parker's not so subtle inspiration and the jokes about putting her in Eva, I wonder if someone had done a fic about Shinji or Asuka gettibg a spider-sona (lol).
