* LighterAndSofter: This story is lighter and more hopeful than canon.



* LoveHurts:
** Shinji has been hurt by everyone whom he loves: his abusive father, his crazy mother, his neglectful surrogate mother, his life's love...
** Shinji's inability to notice her hints, lack of parental and friend supports -and her own trust issues- led to Asuka having a massive breakdown and becoming a psychological mess.
** Gendo loved Yui so much that he would kill everyone for her... until he realized that she was completely unhinged.

** In the original story, Asuka's father and stepmother visited Nerv Japan and met Shinji. Asuka's father punched him accidentally, and Gendo fired him and pushed him in a LCL pool.
** In the rewrite, Asuka's father punched Shinji upon meeting him. Then they talked and got along reasonably well.



* NoodleIncident: In the rewrite, Shinji tells Asuka his father got married again. He says he and Rei got him on the dating circuit and mentions it was somewhat awkward, but he does not provide more--or juicier--details.

Although it only has sixteen chapters, they are worth the read. Landsman has also posted [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6018100/1/NGE_Walking_in_the_Shadow_of_Dreams_Ver_2 a rewrite]] of this fic, which moves more slowly, expands the plot, and has incorporated ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Mari Makinami]]'' and other characters which weren't in the original. The {{Spacebattles}}.com forum threads about the rewrite are [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=160332 here]] and [[https://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/nge-rebuild-of-walking-in-the-shadow-of-dreams-thread-2.205904/ here]].

** Shinji is apparently aware of it too. (Wait a minute, for once in his life Shinji is ''not'' {{Locked Out Of The Loop}}? Huh... wonder if there are any [[CueTheFlyingPigs flying pigs]] in this Fic, too.)
