The whole castling thing is a pretty novel idea, having canon Shinji juxtaposed against the happier more well adjusted version is done well. Then there is all that amusing fanservice :-)

You're beating yourself up unnecessarily for the lack of action; it fits right in with the series. Personally I find your approach fascinating, especially the way in which the parallel worlds mirror each other, and in the way they are the same. I am, also, fascinated by the lack of beat down. Nobody's getting trashed. And, at the same time, the difference is apparent. I like both Shinjis and your approach reinforces that. And, despite my own age and personal cynicism, I am a sucker for a grain of hope.
This chapter and Shinji's awakening was a great treat, featuring, as it does, the essential difference between the two, not just the Shinjis, but the world. I hold out a great deal of hope for a chapter 10 and so on, but, whatever the course, this was a journey worth the effort.

... Another story I want to see more of, but I don't suppose you'll write more of this, will you?
It's a very interesting premise, and you build upon it well.

Great story. I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

At least no one can complain about Berserk Shinji who eats angels for breakfast, that's canon.

Talking Penpen was a bit jarring but the rest was fine.

Hey Mr. Talon!
Thanks for the amusing, yet well written story! After reading several dark fics back to back, as they were the only well written Eva stories I could find on short notice, this is quite the breath of fresh air. Thank you! Please write more.

all that in under three months and then...
assuming i'm reading the dates right anyway. silly American system. makes no sense.
does it count as lying to say the next chapter will include the action then not actually write a next chapter? heheh.
reguardless, i do hope you write more of this at some point. 'tis... quite interesting.

I enjoy this story but damn it is heavy.

Well, first of all let me say that the basic idea of the story is really good, and the alternate universe is shaping up to be interesting.
But the big problem I have with it is that the interactions had by both versions of Shinji with the people around them are becoming much too similar. It's understandable that when the more reserved Shinji gets shunted into his more open counterpart's place he can sort of pick up the slack. But the reverse shouldn't work. As you yourself mention, the AU versions of people are basically okay psychologically. The canon versions...aren't. So they shouldn't really be responding to Shinji flirting indiscriminately in the same way the people from the AU do. I keep expecting to see canon Rei or Asuka to totally lose it only to see them go along with everything with no complaints. That kind of behavior really stretches my suspension in disbelief, and it also messes with the point of the story by making the two universes too similar.
Other than that it's really an excellent story. Good luck.

Mere words cannot describe just how awesome this story is. All I can say is kudos good sir, kudos.

I'm having trouble just starting this review.
I'm just going to go with, "this is fucking awesome" and leave it at that.
Hopefully I won't be so blown away by your next chapter that I can give you a proper review. Till next time, Shino out.

This is.. a very touching and sometimes funny story... I criend and laughed while I read it... Thank you, I hope you'll update soon :)

Very interesting take on a NGE fic. I really really like this and look forward to more.
| Serine 4/11/11 . chapter 9
I think what would make this twist is the two Shinji's able to meet and talk about themselves. King Shinji is to good at everything but I am trying to let that slide. The two meeting and conspiring could be pivital. Especially since in chess castling can only happen once.
