Loved the story! But you've seriously got a lot of stuff going on.
Do you have... I don't know, anyone you can deputize to help with writing? I know you and orionpax09 are involved in one another's writings, but have you considered bringing anyone else on?
(Please note that this isn't an offer on my part. I have enough trouble managing my own story...)

No, Misato is definitely the best choice for a Green Lantern. Asuka could never be one-everything she does is motivated by fear. She's almost like Shinji in that way.
Fear makes Shinji hide away from the world. Fear makes Asuka push the world away from herself. Fear of being hurt, fear of isolation, fear of failure, fear of the past-they have much the same reasons for why they do what they do, and why they are who they are. They just... went about it in different ways.

The whole "Never give up, even without the ring I never would have ceded the city, like Kaji did" kind of rings hollow, considering that without the ring, she'd simply be sitting around watching the pilots implement her crazy plan. While we know that it all works out, that speaks more of the pilot's determination and abilities than Misato's plan. Shinji had to bear the weight of the Tenth, Rei had to extremely damage her hands to catch the core and Asuka delivered the final blow. Misato's "never give up" attitude would mean nothing in that situation. I get what she was saying, and what you were going for...I just don't think that that example worked to describe it.
That being said, loved this chapter. I've read a couple of your stories and I really have enjoyed all of them. Keep up the good work, and thanks for taking the time to write!

Whoa, this was a pretty good read. What I've liked so far of your stories is how you make use of the resources in very creative ways to make them fit with your ideas and the flow of the plot, such as Kaji getting stuck as Misato's replacement, never saw that coming but it was a pretty good move, hilarious as hell too.
The final chapter was really amusing, with Gendo wondering how the hell to kill Wondergirl and Asuka giving zero fucks and wrecking the EVA series with her bare hands.
Looking forward to see the rest of you tales completed.

Not sure which was more kickass, Green Lantern annihilating the ADAM construct, Asuka suddenly outing herself as the lone heir of Krypton, or Shinji dealing Gendo a verbal sucker punch.
... Actually, I'm going to go with Shinji's moment as the most awesome of the three, since he didn't need superpowers for it. Just seventeen chapters' worth of steady character development, a chance moment of being frustrated, and one newly grown backbone.
All in all, a satisfying conclusion to Misato's story.
Right up until Random Oan No. 5 showed up to be an asshole, exactly as planned.

Well it certainly has been a wild ride hasn't it? I never would have imagined that yours would be the first and second SOE story to be finished. My hat is off to you. Sorry I havn't been around to review for a long while. Hopefully that time has come to an end. So here are my final thoughts on Emerald Courage, hopefully the format is familiar.
The Good: Out of all your SOE characters, I think you did the best job keeping our beloved Capt/Major in character. While some of the others were forced to change because of their new roles, Misato always retained that beloved sense or irresponsible slobishness, and at the same time her sense of dedication and forthrightness. I also think the way you explained her being absent all the time was also perfect. With some you begin to wonder how no one can figure out their trick. Here you kept is simple and believable. Some of your other high points in this particular story was the lack of throw away scenes. This chapter in particular had none of them. Each was important in its own right. My personal favorites ( and I liked them all) this chapter were Shinji distracting Gendo so Misato could power up, I got this huge grin on my face when I read "In brightest night...". Asuka going crazy on the Mass-production series was another. Throughout the chapters you have been building to a great climax and this one delivered. You captured the "overcoming the final boss at the last second scene" masterfully. There was no lack of goodness in this story, but I think that's enough for now.
The Bad; I will probably never get over my aversion to Shinji/Adult pairing but in the end that just comes down to personal taste. For what its worth you did that well too :P.
The Other: In the years since you wrote Spirit your writing has improved in leaps and bounds. You should take pride in that. You have overcome one of my most disliked fanfiction tendencies. Doing a scene just because you want to geek out. Especially in the later chapters, you definetley get a sense that each scene was planned and had a part in the over-arching plot. Your prose is tighter and your scene and characters are more vividly described This is a great accomplishment. I look forward to whatever you have to offer in the future especially Supergirl!

Hey, just reread the parts I had read before and finished the series. I am thinking of drawing a misato gl vs gendo sc pic off of it. Send me a comment back if you would like me to.

Epic conclusion to this incredible fanfic! Now you guys have to finish the other ones.
| Frosty Wolf chapter 17 . 10/26/2013
Nice, I'm kind of amazed to see one of these finally finished. Well done!
Will the sequel take up the normal slot or will it be passed on to something else until you finish more stories?

Congrats on another finished Superwomen of Eva story.
Sinestro-Gendo didn't seem as dangerous an opponent than evil Rei but then again Gendo isn't always as cunning and tough as he thinks he is.
I was glad to see Asuka playing a role in the final, and Rei to a lesser extent. One of the things that bugged me a little about the finale of Spirit is that you established that nearly all the other Marvel SoE were around but then none of them showed for the finale, nor did the story really explain if they were they in civillian form why they couldn't or didn't use their powers. Granted all of them ganging up on the lone villian wouldn't make him much of a threat, but but here you had Asuka fighting the Eva series, and explained why Rei wasn't helping against Gendo, since she was tied up which worked out well.
And I must say I wasn't expecting a sequel! I kind of figured once a heroine's tale was over that was it like with Spirit, or at best you'd maybe have one alternate team up story like Orion says he has planned. This is a pleasant surprise!
I thought it seemingly wrapped up rather suddenly, but I guess the fact that the story isn't done is the reason why.

I can't wait to see what happens next!
| animefan29 chapter 17 . 10/26/2013
That was a good ending to the story. Not sure what to say beyond that, except that I am surprised that this story will be getting a sequel that expands beyond the Eva timeline.
| artifactBC chapter 17 . 10/26/2013
Wow... there will be a second?! Alright! It means more Shinji/Misato xxx coz this 1st chapt. somehow disappointing. BUT that's bcoz I think you made a fast track on the S/M relationship. :)
I'll be waiting for the next.
| IncandescentOne chapter 17 . 10/26/2013
I got chills.
Congratulations, you've entered an elite rank of people who complete stories XD And what a story! It's been a ride, I'm so happy I found this story and decided to read (and all your stories, really...)
I'm not a big fan of the green lantern, it strikes me as a bit silly and open to Deus Ex style victories but this has either proven me wrong or you've written without any such crutch anyway XD
I think the whole Misato/Shinji thing was emotional but tasteful, just right.
And I'm pumped for the sequel, hence the chills XD
| Rassilon001 chapter 17 . 10/25/2013
Wow. Just... wow. It has definitely been a long, fun ride, and well worth it. Now... to re-read from the beginning!
Okay, proper review: that was truly epic. Clash of Yellow and Green, Fear and Will, Ikari and Katsuragi. Beautiful. Simply beautiful. Special mention must go to all the highlights, of course, but what I loved most I think was watching Shinji play on the fears of a Sinestro Corps Ringslinger, that Yui never did truly love Gendo. Nicely done.
Short but sweet aftermath, good to see a happy ending was reached by all (except Gendo, of course, but nobody likes him anyway) and Shinji continues to enjoy being surrounded by beautiful superwomen.
... is that a for real sequel being planned? Oh man that would be so awesome... kinda hard to do without too many Eva elements, but like I previously reviewed, lots of potential candidates for other rings scattered about NERV and Tokyo-3...
