Disclainer- Neon Genesis Evangelion doesn't belong to me.

A/N- Written for the lj community Dialogue 500's "Making Up" challenge.

"… what the Hell happened?"

"You… you don't remember?"

"Remember what? Blinding pain in my eye? The feeling of spears ramming into my stomach as I screamed? No, I think I'd remember more beyond that, Shinji."

"… I'm sorry."

"You think that makes it better? I died, Shinji. I died, and you didn't lift a finger to help me."

"They locked me out of Eva… there was nothing I could do."

"You sound so pathetic."


"Don't say that. It makes me sick every time you say that."

"… what happens next?"

"You're asking me? You're the one who woke up first… and tried to strangle me, remember?"

"… would it help if I said I was sorry?"


"Okay. Then… I don't know."

"Well, I hate this view. The giant, creepy Ayanami head and the crucified Evas are doing nothing for me. Let's get the Hell out of here."

"Oh. Alright."

"So… what dumbass decided that today was a good day to turn the world into a barren wasteland and make the entire ocean red?"

"… that'd be me."

"I figured as much."

"You're not angry?"

"Oh. Should I be? You allowed the world to go topsy turvy and now the only thing to watch on the horizon is Ayanami's giant head."

"You're angry."

"No shit."

"… so… where do we go first?"

"… that's a good question. So tell me, oh bringer of the Apocalypse, what didn't you annihilate?"


"Please tell me you at least left some decent food to eat alive."


"Well, that's just great Shinji. You not only leave us stranded in Hell, you didn't even have the decency to leave some food behind!"

"Hey! That's not fair! I wasn't sane at the time!"

"Are you sane now?"

"… that's a good question. Maybe I'm still stuck in Instrumentality, and this is all just one big dream."

"I am not a dream!"

"… well, I guess if that slap hurt, then this can't be a dream."

"Damn straight."

"… do you think we're the last humans left alive?"

"Maybe… hey, wait a minute! This is all your idea, isn't it?"


"You heard me! You schemed up this whole End of the World deal just so you could have me all to yourself! Well, let me tell you something Third Child, even though you are the last man on Earth-"

"Are you completely insane! Why would I want to be stuck with you!"

"Because you harbor perverse teenage lust for me."

"… my God, you will never change, will you? I mean, we just survived THE Apocalypse, and you're still the same."

"Admit it. You wouldn't have me any other way."

"Asuka… you barely tolerate me. And you scare the crap out of me."

"Well, I guess we have to get over that, Shinji. Otherwise, how will we have children?"

"You… you don't mean…"

"Well, we are the last humans left alive."

"… I really hope someone else survived."

"… you and me both."
