"If I have to taste that kind of suffering, then it's better just not to have friends from the start."
— Shinji Ikari
"I've learned that friendship isn't always easy. But I believe without a doubt that it's worth fighting for."
— Twilight Sparkle

Shinji thought his life couldn't get any worse. Getting beat up at school, being alone all his life with no one to call a friend, and saving the world without any acknowledgment or appreciation were just a few of the things that made Shinji regret coming to Tokyo-3. A lavender unicorn with a tiara falling on him while he was taking a bath didn't exactly help his ego either.

Fantastical cover-art done by the amazing Doctor Tastybeaver. :pinkiehappy:

An MLP/Neon Genesis Evangelion story.

If you haven't watched Evangelion before, I suggest that you don't. It keeps the story as a new experience like I intended of it. :twilightsmile: Currently rebuilding, probably a better idea to check this out later when the next chapter pops up. :fluttershyouch:

P.S. First story. Yay.

Wow, haven't read a NGE fic in a while. Looks pretty solid so far. I'll watch it to see where you take it. Good luck! :pinkiehappy:

EVA x MLP? :derpyderp1:

...Well written? :derpyderp2:

...by someone who know"s the "in's and out's" of the show? :pinkiegasp:


YES! YES! A thousand times YES! :yay:

Do you have any idea how long I been waiting for someone to do this? Would have preferred the original anime timeline to the Rebuild timeline but beggars can't be choosers. Excluding a errors (yeah, you should definitely get a proofreader), it's perfect so far. Can't wait to see where this story goes.

God's in his heaven, all's right with the world. :twilightsmile:

Also, this is relevant to our interests: :flutterrage:


Thanks! :twilightsmile:

Sorry 'bout making the crossover with Rebuild, but I found things easier to connect with and meld together to form something complex in the long run with Rebuild. At best with the anime, I could just make it so Shinji doesn't initiate Third Impact, and that's boring. :raritywink: Oops, better stop spoiling what I have in mind. :twilightblush:

Um, you mind pointing out a few errors? I'm real nervous 'bout this so, I wanna get it fixed before more people start reading it tomorrow morning. :twilightblush:

"His name was Shinji Ikari, the Third Child. The designated pilot of the most advanced weapon system developed by man, the Unit-01 Evangelion. And he hated his his life."

I could've sworn I saw one or two other mistakes but I can't find them now.

Also, if I may make a suggestion, you might want to use italics for Japanese and Thoughts. It's alot more eye-pleasing the underlines and single-quotes.


01 was the first to disappear, fading away like it was never there in the first place. The rest of the numbered monoliths then followed in numerical order until the Cylinder was the only one present in the void. It hovered in place for a moment as if in deep thought before fading away like the rest. I wonder what changes the dusk of sundown will bring this time.

Why did I even come back? Father doesn’t even care about me anyway, Shinji thought to himself angrily as he felt his body lurch forwards. Nobody even appreciates what I do here.

An admirable thing, admirable by who? Why do I have to get hurt for piloting the EVA?

The lurching feeling stopped at around the same time the entry plug was free of the orange "tang". “LCL drainage complete, opening exit hatches,” the same female voice from before stated as light poured into the left side of his face.

As he stopped out of the entry plug and lowered himself onto a hard metal scaffolding, he couldn't help but think to himself, It still tastes like blood.

"Oww my head, I don't think that was supposed to happen." It started looking around the bathroom slowly. "Where am I? Is this a bathroom?" it said looking around, before it rested it's deep purple eyes into his blue azure ones.

This continued for about a minute before it spoke again, putting on a large sheepish grin that perturbed him greatly. "Uh, hi there. Nice to meet you?" It spoke nervously, but he didn't notice.

Just use double-quotes for speech and nothing for thoughts.

For flashbacks, which are all italics, just do the reverse

This is me thinking in the present, he thought.
This is me thinking in the past, he thought.

Hope this helps. : )

PS: By "symbolic reference" you mean The Dusk of Sundown? Gee, I wonder who that could be? :twilightsmile:

Hmm, I honestly see Twilight moving from 1 to 2 then jumping to 3 later on, though depending on what you have in mind it's rather difficult to pick. Honestly though I can't see her going past 4 at any point in this story since she entered the world as a pony.

(The transition between 1 and 2 is just as easy as her being taught how to stand upright. And honestly doesn't seem to need to be permanent. Works in 2, personal in 1)

Oh, this can only lead to madness.

I approve.

i can and will proof read for you, just msg me


Oh, I posted that link as a sneak peak for what's to come. (I'm a sucker for giving out spoilers):facehoof:

But hey, AT-Fields. I think I've spoiled enough. :fluttershbad:

An Evangelion crossover where both worlds are seemingly playing a part:derpyderp1:.....you definitely have my interest :pinkiehappy::pinkiehappy:.

Ok calling it now kids, Celestia and/or Luna are manipulating SEELE for nefarious or not so nefarious ends. Also I'm imagining that Third Impact will somehow result in all the humans being turned into ponies because reasons.


If you like NGE x MLP:FiM, go look up Shinji's Nightmare. Basically the premise is that Shinji comes back from <Spoilers> Melting into Tang </Spoilers> as an Alicorn, thanks to everyone's favorite manifestation of a moon goddess's angst stepping in.

Hehe, you'll see next chapter. :derpytongue2:
And no advertising other stories in my comments :flutterrage:

The picture makes it seem like this is a humanized story. If that is the case you should really say that in the description.


It isn't, I just don't have a better picture right now. :applecry:
In the description, it also clearly says that it was a Unicorn that Shinji saw, not a human. :twilightangry2:

I will give you that. Though one should try not to use misleading pictures.

I have seen some humanized stories that still call them unicorns, or pegusus' if they still have horns, or wings.

I liked it better when you use Mirai Start.


You'll have to explain to me what "Mirai Start" is.


Nvm, I got it. I was thinking about getting rid of those 2 videos all together. Might be the source of those down votes that keep stabbing me in the heart.

2556232 Sorry, I didn't realize I did that.

It is supposed to be multiple P for additional PS. PPS, not PSS. PS is short for "post script", any extra would be post post script, etc.

Also I'm guessing the 3 mins 16 secs left on shinjis drill is a reference to John 3:16, with Shinii being the "only begotten son" and Gendo as "God" (though gendo does not love the world).


Oh my bucking Celestia. :pinkiegasp:

WE HAVE A WINNER!!! :raritystarry:

Question: are the mare six humanized in this fic?


No. Where are people getting that from? :twilightangry2:

2595614My guess is that they are just looking at the art for the fic before reading it. A human Twilight and Pinkie for a cover image is going to give a different impression.

2608274 Now that's a good cover image.

I was pleasantly surprise by this, to be honest. A lot of work went into formatting it, as well. I've seen bits and pieces of NGE when I was a kid, and while you say not to (re)watch it, I'm sorely tempted. But I'll wait.


Going back to get down those voices and appearances for your head-canon is alright. :twilightsmile:

2613638 i just saw your post in the pre-reader folder and wanted to ask, if you don't mind. If i could be your pre-reader if possible.:eeyup:

Comment posted by Smiles deleted May 22nd, 2013

going to add this to the read later list... which basically means I'd like to see the story have more chapters before reading :rainbowwild:

I am wondering though, does this fanfic take place at the same time as the TV show, Evangelion? Have ponies always been a part of the universe?

Right, so this is taking place right at the start of series two if I understand rightly...

...looks fun. Certainly gets across how helpless Shinji feels in the Eva series.


Sure, as long as you're actually contributing instead of just trying to get a sneak peak of new chapters. :raritywink:

Send me an email when you can. :twilightsmile:

2623195 don't worry, i'll be a proof reader. But i warn you, i'll only point out mistakes and edit them, not the entire thing.:twilightsmile:


Looking back at my comments, I realize I haven't answered your question yet. Sorry about that. :fluttershbad:

The fic starts right after Shinji recovers from Sachiel's attack. As for your second question, I can't answer that. :raritywink:

This is great! I have just started nge myself, so I haven't seen all that much.

This looks amazing, compared to that other fic, Shinji's nightmare, this fic is a dream come true!

I cannot wait for the awesome to continue!

(and if something as bad as Shinji's nightmare can get featured, then I'm calling it.) This HAS to get featured.


Teehee, thanks. Glad to know you love it! :twilightblush:

Next chapter should be up this Friday actually, if my proofreaders and editors can get to work on it in time. If not, maybe next Friday. :twilightsmile:

2743251 just one thing though.... Does that one guy with the sister, (forget his name) really sound like that? I don't remember that. but hey, it was bad English dubbing so I watched the subbed version.
