Reviews for Neon Genesis Evangelion: That Which Could (not) Happen
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 19 . 9/3/2019
Aw! Very nice, short and to the point. Thanks for writing this! It's great to see a long, detailed asushin AU.

TEAMWORK! The fight scenes were SO AWESOME omg~ Asuka losing her eye and Kaji coming back both made perfect sense. The original ending's events feel so unchangeable that I was worried any alternate would feel unrealistic, but you put in a lot of important detail and even if there were mistakes, I certainly didn't see them.

I kinda love watching Asuka fight. Well, 'reading,' but you know. Kaworu is an off-putting character, and Shinji being better adjusted throws that into starker relief. (Also secretly glad that people find him annoying and creepy.) Still, it wasn't OOC.

Well at least Shinji didn't have to see the Dummy Plug's destruction. It's nice to have Kaworu and Misato interact more with Asuka, especially since originally she was "out of the game" in these parts.

Finally! That embrace was beautiful. And Asuka ripping the Angel apart was just as beautiful ;)

Kaji really is cool even after death. Shinji sticking with Asuka is just . . . man, it's just great. I know my compliments tend to be generic, but it's this or over-the-top gushing, so I'm just trying to be brief. Fuck that Angel forever though.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 13 . 9/1/2019
Kaji's relationship with Asuka is definitely deeper and feels more sincere from her moving past her infatuation. Maybe I'm dim, but I only realized the parallel tracks Kaji/Misato and Shinji/Asuka have going on in this chapter.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 12 . 9/1/2019
Asuka desecrating a memorial is definitely in-character. Although last chapter she was yelling to Shinji about dealing with and improving the real world, it took her four weeks to make the same leap herself. Nice moment with Gendo too.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 10 . 9/1/2019
I forgot last chapter, but Asuka's feelings shifting to the platonic for Kaji is really nice and feels much more mature. I was so surprised with the Angel 13 rewrite - not that Shinji was able to act effectively, but that it still didn't matter and the Dummy Plug was still activated.

It was sweet to see Rei so touched by Shinji's help. He's the only person who doesn't treat her as disposable (or half-hate her as Asuka does). Lol that part about Americans hating Eva 5 for its face and voting against it is so accurate. Nice, less awkward rewrite of Toji/Hikari's scene.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 8 . 8/31/2019
Asuka remains the manipulative and scared person she was in the show, as Shinji retains his insecurity, and I really like that. The changes all feel in-character, like it's just an alternate script. They were so damn close to executing the Angel the 'right' way but of course it still went wrong. That Angel was the worst. Shadow-dirac-sea BS.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 7 . 8/31/2019
ngl I'm mostly skimming the Misato and Kaji sections, just because I never much liked them. It's nothing to do with your writing. Kiss-scene rewrites roooock. And tapping straight into Asuka's self-worth issues is a good way to ensure some normalcy after that.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 6 . 8/30/2019
Someone else probably already told you that "dummkoph" is spelled "Dummkopf." Aside from that, it's been easy reading. The give-and-take tension of their relationship is something I always liked in the show, but it was restricted to so few scenes because of the greater hostility and tension. I know I've said it before, but the baby steps they're taking are just so satisfying to read about.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 5 . 8/30/2019
Dealing with Asuka's issues earlier is so important to growth down the line, I'm so excited~ Seeing Shinji move past his dad as the end-all be-all decider of his worth is even better. I'm really loving all the internal details we get from Shinji and Asuka's narration.
Alysia Of The Pen chapter 4 . 8/29/2019
I dunno Rei, maybe she doesn't trust you because you hide on rooftops and spy on people without a second thought? Still, the extra bonding in the last scene probably makes up for that.
