The argument pertains to a what-if scenario, as found in fanfiction. Which was the part of the greater discussion this point pertains to. And the idea is that the lie is for the good of the person she has the relationship with. Lies are not always bad, you know.
So how exactly could she escape it really?
By not going anywhere near Terminal Dogma and living a human life as long as possible? Just saying, there are ways of at least
delaying the inevitable until the time comes when she is ready to face the truth. After all, a little more maturity couldn't hurt her.
Lol Gendo, should have thought that through better.
Again, in the what-if scenario we're talking about, others could fulfill the role Gendo fulfills. Obviously.
Otherwise, I wouldn't deny what you said as true.
Who would have given a damn? Gendo? We know what he wants. Shinji? We saw his reaction. No one cared sorry to say.
Frankly, I do think such a scenario would have to be pretty contrived, but it could happen depending on the point of deviation in the timeline, and without changing canon personalities either!
Oh so she's human but human laws don't apply to her??? Lolwut?
Really? How? Considering it was never the basis of my point it can go do something crude and explicit.
Answers to both: Human laws as in "you shouldn't kill" or "no stealing" or "this is copyrighted" or "you must have American citizenship to be considered American."
In other words, the analogy is imperfect, but simply attacking it for one technical flaw is the same as nitpicking over semantics. It totally pointless, and doesn't further your point. If you have one...
And the second part is that the laws I mentioned are reference to classification. She would be classified as a human by the way she acts, presents herself, her personality, etc.. But since you already agreed on this, why are we still arguing about it?
What species are we? Oh yeah, the one that spits in the face of the so called laws of nature on a daily basis.
A saying that is far too common and chalked so much with misunderstanding that it really ought to die. Laws of nature are laws of the f*cking universe
. You cannot break those, by definition
I have said Lilith is human many times. I don't see your point.
Again, I don't know why we are still arguing this one. And yet we are. Why is that?
You miss the point. Lilith is a being 4 billion years old from another freaking planet. What kind of relationship can such a being realisticly have with someone that kicks the bucket in under a century? Let's not even get started on her quantum powers...
A human one. Based on a lie, as you said. It would last until Shinji dies. In time, she might forge a new identity for herself, meet new people, maybe even change her form to keep up the charade and seem young again. You know, romantic/sentimental shit like that. Nothing says it can't happen, barring it not being within her character/personality. Use your imagination!
No worries, it's just a meme.
Well, now I've heard them all- naaaah, there's probably more I'm missing!
