Can anyone rec some fics where Shinji is characterised close to canon and not reimagined as some ridiculous badass, but isn't treated like he's a wuss for not being some ridiculous gung-ho super-robot pilot?
I mean, the kid jumped into a volcano to save Asuka, and that act by itself gives him enough man points that he'd still have more metaphorical balls than the entire male population of NERV even if he decided to wear a tutu and have people call him "Magical Princess Shin-chan" for the rest of his life.
That was the one! Cheers, Fellgrave. Haven't read this one since it's original release nearly a decade ago. Was fics like this one that originally gave me the guts to try writing myself. This one's in need of a reread.
I'm looking for a fic that's set before the start of the series. Shinji was raised by one of the character's from Street Fighter who joined Bison. Chun Li was constantly humiliated, and it ended with Shinji literally flying to Tokyo 3. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
Hey I'm new here and I was looking for a fic called "Can't Believe" where Shinji gets a hilariously big penis. Do you know where it is? EDIT: to be clear, it's apparently not a lemon story, so it should be found here.
I'm after a story that I think I found on Darkscribes YEARS ago where Shinji and Rei end up together and Rei has total control of the Magi by (I think) transferring her soul into it, after (again I think) the fight with Armisael/Sixteenth angel.
- [MD Summary= Shinji is a maverick hunter who gets a transferand is now living with Maya and fighting angels.Now with years of training and combat he must fight using the Eva instead of his bare hands.]
Yup. Main Character's life suddenly gets a hud that adds a layer that makes it be lived like playing a game.
Or, before said manhwa was released, die and find out their life was a game so they start from the beginning but now knowing the plot for at least that route and with access to the game tutorial and systems.
I'll admit, it is a bit of power fantasy, but it gets more interesting when the changes in actions, or in avatars, cause a change of route, or the game has a rubberband AI, or they end up in a higher difficulty. That adds a difficulty the character has to go through, and differences most other kinds of fics would need to make the character be OOC to justify but this kind doesn't because, despite the differences in the world, the character got the same initial mind as in the divergence point and will have to adapt to the differences together with the reader.
