Finaly a take on the ep 15 kiss that *didnt* miss the whole point.

...with bonus R/S.

Thank you very much for this entertaining contribution.

nice little fic here. Rather light, but with just enough heart shining through to give a soft 'glow', so to speak.

I liked this fic. A lot. It gives us a good look at the thoughts behind that infamous kiss scene, and then builds on it. Very well done, keep writing!

I really liked this story. The way you set up the three kisses worked really well and didn't feel contrived at all. You have a real gift for description that I wish I had. In fact, after reading this I think I can now handle writing a scene that I'm having trouble with.

You managed to capture Shinji's self-loathing nature and his frustration with himself and his life. His feelings after each of the kisses were so different but matched his character perfectly. It's unfortunate that Shinji ran away after the third kiss, but that was probably the only realistic way it could end.

You are... an amazing author. That story was one of the best that I have read on How do you do it?

Please write more

I was curious how you were going to work this. Asuka was obvious, Misato I had guessed at...Rei was the one I couldn't peg. But it worked out well, and believably so.

It's tempting to write Rei sounding like Mr. Spock-I do it too. I think you were able to overcome that a lot better than I do!

A kiss is just a kiss...

Now this is one fine piece of work you have here. I was impressed with the overall story telling and I enjoyed the read. Great work.

Read ya Later.

I'm so full of thoughts. I just hope I write this all understandable enough and I hope I don't forget to mention something.

I come across many stories in this site and some, to my standards, ARE quality stories. This is one of those.

I was enjoying the slow pace of the (what I would call) 'outside action' which left much room for intrigue. There was much detailed description (even much description of kissing what I don't seem to remember in other fics). But it wasn't boring because it wasn't repetitive, it was like dynamic 'inner action'. I am very fond of such clear emotions, thoughts.

Actually, at first, I thought that it was maybe a little spoiling that the character behaviour motivations were so clear but such great expression of the 'inner world' started to seem very entertaining.

By the way, I'm still glad that you left some room for the reader's own interpretations though. I like when authors give ME something to ponder, too :)

I am talking about the end. It was fantastic. I guess there is something deep in the loon. I could stick Rei and the loon side by side: seem they don't have emotions, moreover, loon makes its lonely-sounding sound and Rei expresses its strange neccessity to kiss Shinji, I could add that maybe neither of them trully understands why they are doing this. Actually, they are both linked by the image of loneliness. The last sentence seems like a covered wish not be lonely herself.

On the other hand, Shinji is supposed to be the centre of the story so the loon might be the image of HIS soul. What is common is the loneliness, the calling (though almost nobody pays attention to it), the MIGRATION (the loons flies away from its friends - Shinji goes away from Rei). And Rei's last sentence, keeping a hint in mind that maybe she admires Shinji, might mean her covered wish for HIM not to be lonely.

It's kind of ironic that he kisses three girls in one night but we can understand that he's lonely. Asuka is just teasing him around, Misato admires someone else, and Shinji is afraid of Rei, I think.

I also liked how smartly you got Shinji to kiss all THREE of the girls in one night. I didn't think you could do it realisticly. I was thinking: "Maybe the third kiss will be with sleeping Asuka or something."

I have had a thought that all of the kisses will be from the anime, just the one with Rei not. Your way is more interesting.

All in all, you got me writing a long review. This has never meant something bad. This always means I'm very impressed. This a great story because of the interesting 'inner action', thought provoking and smart action chain. I think I'll rarely read something like this so I'll put it in my favourites ;)

Good luck ;)

LIAR! You offered your assistance for Studio 402! "Writing exercise," you called it!
