Okay! Parts 1 and 2 of O-ki-na-wa! Nothing momentous here, it's all setup. But hopefully it's enjoyable! Please let me know what you think!

I wasn't planning to do anything with Kaji for a long while. I was planning to work on Fuyutsuki, and O-ki-na-wa!, and had the latter worked out to something like ten scenes. But today, Kaji showed up and laid a hand on my shoulder and said, "Hey, how 'bout this?" Thankfully, he didn't try to seduce me.

Enjoy!

Shadowjack said something about the non-linear nature of the fic working in such a way that any given scene informs both the scenes that came before and the scenes that came after, so maybe a bit of that will kick in here. But in any event, this is my thinking on the subject: the "supplemental information" goes far beyond Misato's advances on Shinji. It also covers her neglect of Asuka, Nerv's treatment of Rei, and the general lack of care offered the kids while they were Pilots. And I think this revelation on her part is essential, since it makes it clear that the Children are her primary interest at this point. If she didn't mention these things beforehand it would look like she was trying to hide something when they came up in sessions, and then Okada would be in the position of trying to evaluate whether or not she was a suitable caretaker and possibly even trying to figure out how he can separate her from the Children.

As to whether or not she'd bring it up: the kids know about this thanks to Instrumentality, so she's already been called on it. Instrumentality changed all of the characters in various ways: it made Shinji more resolved to take action rather than let things happen around him, it made Asuka more open to the efforts of others when they're trying to help her, and it made Misato drastically reassess her priorities. It may be a bit of a leap when it comes to her character as portrayed in NGE, but for my purposes the Children are her primary concern now that the world isn't in danger of ending, and full disclosure to their primary therapist is a big part of that. It demonstrates to him that there is no conflict of interest here, and it helps him put their struggles into the proper context. I don't know if this comes across properly in the scene, or if it should be changed to more accurately reflect this, but I feel the revelation is absolutely necessary.

Anyway, that said, new scene! I think this one works well on its own, but I'm not sure how it interacts with the January 28, 2016 scene. I think it's suitably complementary, but we'll see how outside eyes perceive it.

Next: I'm not sure I need that other Misato/Shinji scene after all. So, maybe Fuyu? I think he's next chronologically. No, wait, O-ki-na-wa! is first. So probably the first scene of that, and then Fuyu.

New chapter! This one's been holding me up for weeks, since it's not what I wanna be working on right now. But I think it came out okay. Comments, etc.

Next: The Beach, and then another Shinji/Misato scene. And then we get to the good stuff!

And here we have another barely edited piece. I'm sure you lot will be kind enough to point out any errors/moments of idiocy, and I'll fix them once you do. But in the meantime, here goes: The Talk.

Next: Misato/Okada, possibly with a callback to episode 15 in-between. Then another Misato/Shinji, and possibly a Shinji/Asuka scene on the beach. After that the final five, assuming inspiration doesn't strike in the meantime.

To my surprise, the Pen Pen scene stands on its own quite nicely. This amounts to an omake, but I think it's important to note that (somehow) the little guy is still around.

I fully admit the second part is a work in progress, but I think the two scenes mostly flow pretty well. Comments/etc welcome, as always. Pen Pen chapter will be going up next, and after that another Asuka/Misato (last one), Shinji/Misato, Misato/Okada, and then the endgame: O-ki-na-wa!, Fuyutsuki, Kaji, Kyoko, and Katsuragi. Apart from the last the endgame chapters will all involve multiple scenes. I'm not sure if I'll clump them together a la the first and fifth posted pieces or if I'll break them up and tell them piecemeal; it all depends on how things flow, I guess.

Asuka: Here, do this one. There's a lot to work with there.
Bagheera: What? I thought you said you were tired.
A: Never mind that. Just do it.
B: I believe your exact words were "Fuck off, I'm tired."
A: Are you actually arguing with me?
B: . . .
A: Well?
B: Shinji's right, you're impossible.
A: Heh.

Misato and the good doctor will have to wait, I guess. So it goes. Not sure about the date on this one; it feels like it should be a couple months later along, but OTOH Hikari really should show up sometime in the week after Asuka gets back from Kyoto, so whatever. I guess it works whenever.

As always, feedback is appreciated. Next time: Misato and Dr. Okada. Probably.

So, Asuka told me to fuck off for awhile. Said she was tired or something. Anyway, I saw the fourth chapter of Afterwards... by Paul Hodges (pwhodges at EvaGeeks) and got to thinking about how I think Shinji would handle that, and how his victim should respond. So, now we have a bit with Touji! I'm going with that spelling of his name for now, since it feels right for some reason. No telling if it will stick. As for the chapter, it's short. I can't tell if that means it's inadequate or just wonderfully dense with information. Maybe both, maybe neither. Maybe you can tell me! Anyway, here goes:

Next: Hopefully Dr. Okada and Misato, AKA War Crimes. Look forward to it!
