[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5926116/1/Evangelion_Gear Evangelion Gear]] is a fanfiction written by Snafu the Great which combines both the universes of Franchise/MetalGear and Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion into a single world.

The plot follows the newly reformed Patriots led by Big Boss, who discover Seele's plans for Third Impact and set out to put a stop to it. Along the way Big Boss encounters Shinji Ikari, who is isolated, and depressed. He soon befriends him, and teaches him Close Quarters Combat, and how to defend himself against the Red Devil that he calls Asuka.

During this time an all out war begins to brew between [[AncientConspiracy Seele]], [[BigGood The Patriots]], and [[ManipulativeBastard Gendo Ikari]], [[note]]As well as the Angels, however, they aren't a huge problem.[[/note]] which comes to a head by the end of things.

Be warned though, there are a few typos here and there, however, this isn't a huge problem, considering how [[SoCoolItsAwesome damn cool]] the story is.

Considering this is a story based on both Franchise/MetalGear ''and'' [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]] there are bound to be ''tons'' of spoilers before. '''''You have been warned.'''''
