All your friends suddenly appear standing around you in a large circle and congratulate you for finding the acceptance that Anno never could for his tortured character Shinji
Enjoyed your style very much, your thoughts on EvAs characters and their inner selves mirrors much of how I have come to see them. With the possible exception of Asuka as I always had her shipped with Shinji and a happier ending…

I feel a drastic relapse coming on? Otherwise it’s all sounding tooth rotting sweet ;-)

It’s like looking through binoculars backwards, something made to see so far yet when not understood makes the world seem small and far away…

“ but as he reached the bottom he realized one frightening truth” he liked it! Rolling in his own self pity, running away, avoiding having to face the reality, Asuka was lost to him…

Authors notes on idiot proofing is worthy of publishing as a seperate story line to help us “idiots” better understanding the characters mind ands view of the world, I loved it made me laugh…
Thanks Asuka,… ops I meant Fresh C. x

Currently on a bit of an Eva reading binge. It has been years, but I remember reading this before. This story is still as good as I remember it to be. The scene with Shinji and Asuka in his room is just so heart wrenching and real. I could see this realistically happening to these characters. I know it's been a long, long time since you wrote this, but it's unbelievably amazing.

Very good, ended perfectly. With everything not quite resolved perfectly, but tied up realistically. Everyone was in character-even Asuka, in a sense. I liked this.

this was something i needed to read right now, so thanks for that
ill always appreciate it, and ill always come back to read this. i dont normally get this kind of closure from a story, so im glad it ended how it did. it felt right, it felt earned, it felt natural. or maybe im just feeling sentimental

Damn powerful story. Awesome stuff.

considering that I started this story deeper than I’d like to be on your stupid scale, figuring out early that she meant finding Asuka literally felt pretty rewarding

(Do Not put a girl as the center of your life) Good fic, kinda confusing at times though

Utter perfection. That's when the great idea, passion, and the ability to execute it all meet. Not a thing I can think of what needs changing in this story. And, as good it is on its own, it gives justice to the characters of NGE it focuses on and their traumas, too. Good job.

I felt exactly the same as when I watched EoE for the first time. Very well written story.
