''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4673040/1/ And If That Don't Work?]]'' by Sunshine Temple is a ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' [[spoiler:and some VideoGame/TeamFortress2 and WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment]] fanfic where with [[NukeEm enough gun]], even an Angel can be destroyed, AT field and all, without an Eva. Of course, this tactic usually means wiping out a fair chunk of the surrounding area. And you definitely don't want your pilot and Operations Director getting caught in the blast. Nevertheless, with a proven alternative available, NERV's political position has changed big time. And Shinji? Well...

* AbusiveParents - Neither Gendo or Dr. Insana are ''hostile'' to their children, but it's hard to categorize their parenting to either as anything else.
* AliceAllusion - Shinju's got the hairband, [[ElegantGothicLolita dress]], and morbid cuteness.

* BeehiveHairdo - Asuka (yes, Asuka) is talked into wearing one of these to a victory party.

* CreepyDoll - In keeping with the above, most people think Shinju's doll collection is cute. Asuka on the other hand...

* FlowerMotifs - Shinju is sent an unusual bouquet in ch. 6. As a GeniusBonus, [[spoiler:the flowers can all be negatively interpreted as Death, Revenge, Suspicion, and Loathing. This is a warning of Mikki's true intentions.]]
* ForScience - "Sciencier" Insana's motivation / CatchPhrase.
* FountainOfYouth - A side effect of what happens to Shinji and Misato; see CloningBlues above.
* FourIsDeath - This time Shinju is the Fourth Child. To ram the point home: after her fifth kill she gains the nickname "[[{{Pun}} Ace of Spades]]."
* GatlingGood - The [=YA11=] Dreadhog has a nuclear powered one of these.
* GenderFlip - ...and an especially twisted one, at that.
* HalfHumanHybrid - The Ayanamis and Kiko.

* HumansAreCthulhu - Another part of the Angels' views on humans.
* HumansThroughAlienEyes - From ch. 5 on, the fic is starting to feature scenes from the Angels' perspective. For them, humans are monsters that consort with {{Eldritch Abomination}}s and perverted Angelic flesh to make war machines. Nuclear weapons are particularly horrifying to them, being machines capable of destroying souls.

* ItsRainingMen - Nerv hard drops far more than often than canon, such as the [[spoiler:Ramiel]] battle. Unlike the canon this time the pilots regularly sing paratrooper songs. It's that kind [[RealRobot of fic]].

* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter - And the man that embraces the above to the fullest just happens to be ''Asuka's'' father. [[spoiler:Former MIT Professor Tino Noah Insana. You can guess his [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment nickname.]] Arguably a weirder father than Gendo, and in charge of S2 research.]]
* MeaningfulName - Dr. Insana. Hoo boy.
* MeaningfulRename - [[spoiler:Asuka --> Nigokiko/Kiko after Asuka was turned into a human/EVA-02 hybrid]].
* MildlyMilitary - NERV is seen as this by JSSDF and Azazel. One of the key themes of the fic is NERV being forced to become more transparent.
* {{Newsreel}} - The Azazel and Nerv pilots are frequently in these.
* NuclearWeaponsTaboo - Very much {{averted}}, though the political (and other) fallout of using nukes keeps NERV in business.
* NukeEm - How Sachiel meets his end.
* OCStandIn - Arguably what happens to Shinji and then to Asuka.
* OxymoronicBeing - Kiko is a miniature giant robot. That is, she's [[HalfHumanHybrid half]] [[HumongousMecha Evangelion]] but [[RobotGirl human sized.]]
* PoweredByAForsakenChild - In chapter 5, Misako [[InvokedTrope uses this exact phrase]] when discussing [[spoiler:the dummy plugs]].
* RedEyesTakeWarning - All three Ayanamis
* RememberWhenYouBlewUpASun - Asuka is constantly reminded that she blew up a mountain as a high point of her first battle, despite her complaints of it being covered with Angels and rather small.

* ShoutOut - ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment'', ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers,'' ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}''
* ShovelStrike - The Evangelions have Spetsnaz-style prog shovels.
* SovietSuperscience - Mostly averted. The Angel Buster nukes are slight modifications of real weapons.
* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids - Nigokiko was designed ''to be a Sapiency Driver for Unit 02''... to enable [[spoiler: Asuka]] to Pilot Unit 02, being able to [[spoiler: generate AT fields]] is just a side effect.
* SurvivalMantra / MadnessMantra - Latching onto a bit of advice from Rei, Shinju has "Open your heart" which she chants while gutting Angels.
* TailorMadePrison - Ever wonder where Nerv was planning to put Sandalphon? Enter the Caina Containment Complex, a prison for Angels. It's secured by a nuclear SwordOfDamocles DeadManSwitch, much to [[spoiler:Iry's]] chagrin.
* TheyCalledMeMad - Ritsuko says this exact like in the first chapter.

Shinji rapidly becomes either [[OCStandIn unrecognizable]] or more "natural". A bit of AuthorAppeal with the militarization of NERV and the way a certain character dresses. The [[OriginalCharacter OCs]] are a lot of fun. By the same author is ''Fanfic/TheReturn'', a ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''/''Manga/SailorMoon'' cross which does much the same thing with those franchises.
