* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': Chapter 2 "Survive" narrates how Shinji and Asuka prepared themselves to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. At a point Asuka insists on driving a car. Shinji points out they don't even know how drive and asks if she is really sure she wants to drive that car. Asuka replies it can not be harder than driving a giant robot. Cue hilarious moments: the engine stalled, they drove slowly because Asuka often forgot change the gears or stepped too hard on one of the pedals, and they almost crashed into a broken-down car.
