| lose chapter 1 . 8/23
God, this one really is as sick as everyone told me. That doesn't change the fact that it's a great piece though. The implications were made pretty obvious from the start, but I still couldn't help but think to myself 'is he really going where it seems like he's going with this?' And you were. So, kudos to you for writing such an absurdly crazy fic, you dark bastard.
Also, Shinji legitimately freaked me out when he was talking in Yui's voice. It definitely evokes images of Norman Bates from Psycho. I'm not sure if that's what you were going for, but yeah it was super creepy. Especially given that I was reading that part at like 3:30 in the morning. Anyways, great story.

...What in the actual fuck.
I'm not sure whether to get some brain bleach or favorite it.
Probably gonna do both.

Like literally how can you even create something this twisted.
You have my admiration.

AHHHHHHHH I NEED BRAIN BLEACH WHY WHY DID YOU HAVE TO WRITE THAT AHHHHH MY EYES MY SANITY MY HEART MY BODY EVERYTHING I feel dirty now
| pihip chapter 1 . 12/5/2013
Let me be honest here. I need to write something.
Normally, I avoid the sickest stuff because I can't tolerate it, but I'm fairly open when the topic shifts to porn or hentai, even controversial ones - guro, social taboos, you name it. So I was convinced that I could stomach a bit of... unique stuff, so long as it remained within certain boundaries.
This work knows none of those boundaries. It is pure, undiluted nightmare fuel of the highest quality, the sickest fanfic I've ever read online, bar none.
And you know what's most frightening? IT WORKS. It stays true to the dark and depressing nature of the show, and the disastrous psychological health of some characters.
...now if you'll excuse me, I need my brain bleach.

You just gave me more of a reason to hate Gendo... thx!
| Blitzstrahl chapter 1 . 3/7/2013
Damn really wanted so see how Rei and Asuka would react to this
| WTF chapter 1 . 1/24/2013
What the fuck is up with you and writing shitty endings?
| Toriano.Flacko chapter 1 . 11/26/2012
Well... between the "reconstruction surgery" and "going missing," first thoughts went to 'Uh, uh, he turned into an Angel...?' But then it went back to "Kyoko? That you?" And in hindsight at that point, it became "maybe it's someone's mind come back from the past?" Didn't connect it to, well, her at all until the reveal I'm afraid.
If this is how Mis and Rits take it, wonder what Rei and Asuka will think?
And on a completely disregarding the seriousness of the situation note (that is, retconning the darkness[does saying 'lol' after that make me evil?]), wonder how things might have turned out if Rei and Asuka figured out he actually thought, well, that, and it was played for laughs?
... What? It could have been possible... maybe...
| MAI742 chapter 1 . 10/18/2012
I dare say they're doing it wrong - leaving aside the morality issue for a moment - if painkillers are needed, but anyhow... disturbing. I'd like to say disturbing in a 'good' way... and indeed I shall, for the characterisation was consistently acceptable, though not uniformly excellent. As I opened with saying, the bloody-ness and such is a bit meh, but the premise is brilliant in the kind of way I think we've all come to expect of you. That was some nice wit we saw there with Misato, also.
| Cotillon chapter 1 . 9/10/2012
This was one excellent piece of work. I didn't quite cathc that Shinji involved himslef in this by his own free will, but hey the sicker the greater... not really but I am still amazed. I like Shinji above all other Eva charachters and hate to see him suffer but I still find these darkfics amazing... I must be insane... Good work m'lady or sir... whoever you are you just made my day!
| ryu238 chapter 1 . 2/5/2012
This is the darkest story I have ever read not to mention the most desturbing.
| Atrile chapter 1 . 11/5/2011
You sick, sick bastard.
| ice elemental chapter 1 . 1/20/2011
I just want to congratulate you on one of the most enjoyable creeping realisations I've experienced in fanfic, from mild suspicions as to how the time absorbed in unit 01 effected Shinji to his mistaking Asuka for Kyoko suspecting then realising that yes his mind has to some degree merged with that of his mother. You provided some of the best slow building horror I've read in quite some time, thank you.

I don't know whether to call you a sick bastard or an artist.
This left my head completely wiped, exprecionless with eyes wide open.
Had this fic been any different, I would have called you a stupid fangirl using Gendo as cheap villain, but the creepy thing is, everyone is so freakin' In-Character... The darkness of the later episodes, the musings/talks about the general situation, Asuka and Misato slowly subcumbing to their problems, Rei's worries about the Commander being late...
And the absoilute creepyness that was Shinji. There was never any clear point where you could place the 'transistions', so much was left ambiguos and he/she (Oh god, the pronous swap at the end made me freeze inside...) was FREAKIN SMILING THE WHOLE TIME after the 'Reveal'...
The fact that Gendo REFUSED at first and had to be CONVINCED was pretty much the icing on the cake... Because in the end... he was in-character as well. It's not that he's evil or doesn't care about Shinji at all, but he IS desperate... He IS...
It just fits Evangelion so well, the twisted psychology-things, the starving for love and the failed communication, the frightening mixture of ecstasy and despair.
It could have actually happened if Shinji's retrievement from inside Unit 01 hadn't gone as well as it did...
I think I've decided.
You're an artist. A bloody Artist.
So, excuse me now, I'm going to stare straight at a wall untill the shock wears off.
