Thanks. I shamelessly jacked it from THAT-BOARD.com

Edit: "that board?" LOL!

Hello all!

Postby chestylarou » Fri Oct 15, 2010 2:31 am

Well I think I had an account here previously, but I am notoriously bad at actually posting things on forums. I mainly like frequenting this site because I just feel so lost after watching NGE that I feel the need to come here and search for "answers". I doubt I will ever get any, but hey I can dream...

Anyways just wanted to make myself known to the forum.
The one thing I give NGE is that everytime I watch it, no matter how old I get, I end up feeling just terrible at the end.

Greetings all. I guess into posts are the thing to do here, so here goes.

I've appreciated Eva for a loooooong time, but only crossed into real fandom territory relatively recently. Funny story, that; I went and read Nobody Dies, which got me watching Rebuild, which in turn got me watching the series again. This led to me giving the series more scrutiny than I have in the past, which led to me enjoying the hell out of it, which led me to disliking the things that led me back to it.

I do enjoy irony.

Anyway, I'm a pretty hardcore Shinji/Asuka shipper, but unfortunately my shipping is tempered by pragmatism: I only like stories and fanfics and such that do a lot of heavy lifting to make the pairing work. This means that, in practice, I'm...not much of a Shinji/Asuka shipper (I enjoy Angelic Days and ISRP, though).

Did I mention I enjoy irony?

Anyway, that's my relationship with Eva in a nutshell. More in the forums as it comes up, I guess.

Well, most stories don't do the heavy lifting needed to sell the idea, so I'm not a fan of them. I'm a fan of the idea, in other words, but not the way it's generally put into practice.

Well, you'll find most people around here have taken the red pill, so to speak. Personally I find that most of the heavy lifting in that relationship gets done by Shinji in the kitchen scene in EoE -- doing that two-hand lift at arms length is quite impressive! :devil:

Hi fellows I'm Raeman,

I've been off forums for quite a while now, but after watching the Rebuild of Evangelion I thought I see what the rest of the eva fans think of whats happened. And whatever juicy bits of info about what going on that I may of missed.

Just an fyi, but people who had previous accounts before could always have their accounts merged if you PM an admin and give your username/email address information.

And welcome to all the new people, enjoy the site. :)

1. Bright-eyed young person experiences "Rebuild of Evangelion", falls in love.
2. Joins internet community to share their love.
3. Finds a hundred pages of Rebuild-oriented angst.
4. Cries shimmering tears.
5. Tears are harvested by O-chan.
~ O-chan is soooo 2D right now.

Err, I’m just wondering, is there something special about tears… and harvesting them. They’re kind of a recurring theme here and in EVA(sans the harvesting).

Then I'm sure you'll fit into (our weirder) threads just fine.
It's a pretzel why?

My friend and I had the genius idea of writing a fanfic. It went along pretty averagely until she began to write a scene about Shinji suddenly being assaulted by Gendo and covered in the scent of pretzels.

TL;DR: I'm really not sure myself.

It's not that weird, or at least Gainax has produced equally strange stuff with Fuyutsuki (Shinji just looks that much like his mother it seems).
So Gendo and pretzels is oddly enough not that implausible; in fact it probably wouldn't be that unusual when placed alongside the other stuff in the fandom section.
