Having followed your link from the Evageeks fanfiction recommendations discussion page thing, I thought this would be much worse than it really is. The going is easy and interesting enough that I actually want to keep reading, which is a good sign.

That was... damn.
Anyway, amazing chapter. I like the way you interspersed the time periods, it really helped keep the tension up. Lots of really interesting characterization and exploration here, too.
I have really enjoyed starting and then catching up on this fic the last couple days. I'm hungry for more, but please take all the time you need to keep making it awesome.
Not that I'd argue with an update sooner rather than later, but... eh. I'm sure it'll be worth the wait. :)
Thanks for writing!

I'm sorry but with just how choppy you chose to write this the angel confrontation bits were simply too long and I actually started to skim them. I think they might have been even worse if they were put together chronologically correct.
I do rather enjoy this story, but this chapter feels like you wrote the 'angel confrontation scene' ten separate times then included all of them rather than condensing to one final 'angel confrontation'.

The needs of the many do not simply outweigh the needs of the few, especially when the few do not get even get a say in their fate.

Holy God, that was all one chapter... that was a freaking ride.
Just taking a break here, with two chapters left before I'm caught up, to say that I'm really glad I decided to try reading this fic. It's an excellent story. So much more than just an SI. There are so many great observations and explorations of the canon characters, and your treatment of the issue of suddenly being stuck as a member of the opposite sex (and the consequences over time) is handled better in this fic than probably any genderflip fic I've ever read.
Like as in, there's maybe a single _Ranma_ fic out of the hundreds I've read that handles that idea anywhere close to this well. I'm genuinely impressed.
Looking forward to more!

Great to have you back writing this fic, Dartz. And the quality keeps being top-shelf.

Heh, dropped into an SI situation after staying up too late reading "The 2nd Try," huh?
Okay, I'll bite. I've been avoiding giving this story a read for months now because I figured, statistically speaking, "I Was a Teenage Dummy Plug" was probably the only decently written EVA SI on the site. Well, suffice it to say our fandom continues to surprise me with its abnormally high number of well written fics... so I'll give this one a chance. Looking forward to getting caught up.
Thanks for writing!

... Sudden thought. O.O
Nori, being female, can get away with slapping girls for being bitches. O.o
...I know it's not a chivalrous thing to think, and certainly not nice... but Asuka NEEDS to be put in her place.
I dunno. Maybe I'm just unforgiving. Anyway...
About this chap.
...Well, Nori is adapting admirably, to be sure. Handling the gender change well, too. As well as can be expected, in any case. Unasked for, unexpected. Sudden. Yeah, not the best for a person's mental condition.
Truthfully, I think it's a rather accurate representation of what a person might go through in this situation.

...To those about to die, I salute you. May you rest in peace, brother. :p

You're back! Wow...
Even though it's been so long, reading this just drew me back in like a typhoon. God, I love your work. It feels like I've been following this story for almost a decade...which isn't far from the truth. But your writing is just impeccable, it really is.
Thank you so much for the wonderful read so far. I really mean that.

Phew... What a chapter!
The extraordinary depth and complexity you've worked into it is breathtaking. I enjoyed it all immensely. The interplay between characters, Noriko's slow but steady transformation from Hybrid-Noriko to Mostly-Noriko, the clever change in tactics of the Angel, the interdimensional explanations that made my brain hurt, the M.A.S.H. reference, the unenviable but unavoidable choice that finally does the job, the top-notch F-strikes and most of all the writing quality!
A genuine tour-de-force of an update. Brilliant stuff!

Wow, what a chapter :)
I'm glad you're still alive, because this story is still awesome.
Somehow, this chapter really reminded me of "And if that don't work" by Sunshine Temple. If you're not familiar with it, you should really check it out.

This has been a very excellent story.
I highly commend the way you have written, how you gradually began to shift your identity away from the male perspective towards the female. Unlike other fanfics where this does not happen or happens instantly with little to no angst is a welcome change.
It is also refreshing to see how the story is not one long action scene, but instead a gradual tale of life with its ups and downs.
The many references to other fanfics and other series are a welcome distraction. This helps to move the story without having to do a heavy reference.
I look forward to the additional chapters as the story has not been moved to your dead pile.

Yet another good fic in a state of limbo. Please say this isn't dead.
