Maya Ibuki was born to and of magic, but she never liked it. She was only too happy to leave it behind and become a computer technician. But unforeseen circumstances will force her to pick up her wand once more.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5106353/1/Superwomen-of-Eva-2-The-Magic-Touch Superwomen of Eva 2: The Magic Touch]]'' is an entry in the ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' fanfic series penned by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1615106/Mike313 Mike313]], in which [[BridgeBunnies Maya]] [[AscendedExtra Ibuki]] learns some disturbing things about Nerv, embraces her [[SuperpowerfulGenetics magical heritage]], and takes the name {{Zatanna}} in order to save the world.

Currently under construction. Please add tropes as you see them!

----

!!This ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva 2'' story contains examples of the following:

* ActionSurvivor: Maya and Shinji, temporarily. Being hunted by zombies will tend to do that to you.
* {{Adorkable}}: As of Chapter 6 (not counting the prologue), Shinji's adopted a bit of this when he's with Maya.
* AllMenArePerverts: Maya is beginning to develop this opinion, given that she's almost universally ignored in civvies (except by Shinji, which she appreciates), while she's almost universally sought after as Zatanna, despite (in her words) the only difference being fishnet stockings.
* AlmightyJanitor: Gendo's secretary is able to stonewall '''[[EvilSorcerer Felix Faust]]''', ''even though'' he is also "a Special Inspector to NERV from the Marduke Institute, duly appointed by the Human Instrumentality Committee, an agency of the United Nations" in addition to being, well, an EvilSorcerer. She is, however, happy to schedule him for an appointment with Gendo at one-o'-clock... in two weeks.
* ArchEnemy: Klarion the Witch Boy.
* AscendedExtra: Our protagonist, Maya Ibuki, obviously.
* BadassBookworm: Ditto the above.
* BiTheWay: Rather than being a LipstickLesbian like in canon, Maya is stated to be bisexual in this universe. However, her canon attraction to/admiration of Ritsuko is left intact.
* BoomHeadshot: [[Main/AvertedTrope Completely averted]] in terms of being a OneHitKill for [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies]].
* [[spoiler: BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood: Maya gives Gendo some LaserGuidedAmnesia, intending to make it at least ''possible'' for he and Shinji to patch up their relationship. On the other hand, Gendo's also forgotten everything about his ''job'' and needs Fuyutsuki to counsel him. It's also notable in that Maya doesn't make this decision at ''all'' lightly, as she essentially erased Gendo's entire identity in the hopes that he'd create a better one, and it's treated almost like crossing the GodzillaThreshold.]]
** [[spoiler: AmnesiacResonance comes into play when Gendo stumbles across a picture of Yui.]]
** [[spoiler: She later gives LaserGuidedAmnesia to Asuka, after her mindrape that broke her so totally in the series, hoping that by having that day erased, Asuka will be able to resist falling to rock bottom like she did in the series.]]
* [[CantHoldHisLiquor Can't Hold Her Liquor]]: If not outright stated, then strongly implied.
* TheChewToy: Gendo becomes this in the non-canon {{omake}}s. He’s been killed repeatedly by Maya during a talent show, subjected to dominatrix Ritsuko, etc... In the story proper, however, he’s always treated dead seriously.
* {{Crossover}}: Notably averted so far. No other heroines have appeared or been referenced in this story, nor has Maya as Zatanna appeared in any others, barring {{omake}}s. Unusual, considering the otherwise frequent crossovers of at least one other heroine per story.
** ''In'' the {{omake}}s, however, this story crosses over with ''Fanfic/SOE2TheHandOfFate'' and, of all things, ''Series/MythBusters''.
* DeadpanSnarker: Once the zombies show up, Shinji’s response is jaded annoyance.
* DealWithTheDevil: Well, [[MeaningfulName Faust]] has a deal with ''someone''; we're just not quite sure who yet.
* DevilInPlainSight: Almost everyone can tell that Klarion isn’t quite ''right''. May overlap with some level of UncannyValley.
* ExtraStrengthMasquerade: When Klarion summons a swarm of nightmarish pixies at school, the authorities declare it a mass hallucination.
* GambitRoulette: According to the files that spurred Maya to action, everything that happens in canon through ''End of Evangelion'' is part of Gendo's plan. [[spoiler:Including the part where Rei betrays him for Shinji. Somehow.]]
* GratuitousJapanese: Not really enough to be a bother, but the occasional 'hai' or 'gomen nasai' ''does'' make it in.
* HeelFaceTurn[[spoiler:/HeelFaceBrainwashing: Gendo.]]
* [[spoiler: IdentityImpersonator: In one chapter, in order to throw off suspicion from Maya, her sister dons the Zatanna outfit and fakes a battle with a dragon over the skies of Tokyo-3.]] [[ACupAngst Much to Maya's chagrin]], she later says that she needed to bind her breasts to fit the suit.
* InTheBlood: Magic runs in the Ibuki family.
* IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney: The entire reason Maya ''ever'' consented to being a stage magician in her backstory was so that she could get the funding to pay for college to learn the skills that later landed her at Nerv.
* LaughingMad: Shinji has a moment after being attacked by Klarion and saved by Zatanna, although it’s only a giggle.
* MagicAIsMagicA
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Played with. Maya actually invokes the trope, hoping that she can cheer Shinji up enough that he’ll embrace life instead of ever wanting to end it. At the same time, however, she's a strong subversion of the trope's [[GenkiGirl normal character archetype]].
* MemeticSexGod: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] and then PlayedForLaughs in one of the {{omake}}s, wherein Maya [[PowerPerversionPotential uses her magic to make Shinji into one]]. [[spoiler: [[GoneHorriblyRight It promptly backfires]] [[HilarityEnsues with hilarious results]].]]
* TheNecromancer: Klarion.
* NiceGirl: Maya, natch.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Maya gives Shinji a charm to protect him from magical assaults... which serves to make him a target for Klarion. Thankfully, Zatanna quickly resolves the issue before it gets too far out of hand. Later used again with the Twelfth Angel, when Maya [[spoiler: combines magic and particle physics theory to blast the Angel, inverting its AT Field... and inverting the Angel in the process, meaning that now all of Tokyo-3 is inside it. On the other hand, she arguably goes on to subvert the trope, since this changes the situation in a way that she can defeat the Angel and save the day as Zatanna.]]
* NotWhatISignedOnFor: Shinji’s reaction to being magically attacked. Of course, it’s immediately [[Main/LampshadeHanging lampshaded]].
--> Then again, he hadn't exactly signed up to pilot EVA either, but that had happened, too.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Klarion [[Main/DiscussedTrope mentions this one by name]].
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Western-style, intelligent, [[spoiler:and the one that appears is friendly.]]
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Closer to the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-style [[VoodooZombie undead automatons]] than any of the [[Film/NightOfTheLivingDead Romero]]-derived versions.
* RedShirt: [[Main/LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]], regarding the Section Two agents who try futilely to stand up to the undead.
* SeenItAll: With Angels [[spoiler:and a dragon]] attacking the city and [[spoiler:pixies and zombies]] showing up, the people at Nerv are starting to get a little blase:
--> '''Aoba''': "Demons."
--> '''Makoto''': "Sure, why not? We have Angels, now we have demons, too."
* ShesGotLegs: Maya's flavor of giving us {{fanservice}}.
* {{Shotacon}}: Maya’s realization that she might be going shota for Shinji leads her to a comical freak out.
-->''He's just a boy! You're not ''that'' hard up for a date, girl!''
* SlasherSmile: Klarion deals one out to Shinji.
* SurvivalMantra: Shinji gets a new one [[spoiler: when demonic things start scratching at Unit-01’s armor during the Twelfth Angel incident]]. “They can’t get in here, they can’t get in here..."
* TakeAThirdOption: Fuyutsuki was finally given one to take when Zatanna [[spoiler: wiped Gendo's identity.]]
* ThereAreNoTherapists: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]].
--> '''Dr. Minami''': "What happened sounds disturbingly like some kind of fugue, but I'm not a psychologist. The commanders refuse to get one on the staff, unfortunately."
* [[spoiler:ThrowingTheFight]]: Faust fully intends to do this when he first confronts Zatanna.
* TooDumbToLive: Subverted. Maya deliberately does this (walking down a dark alley in the bad part of the city while wearing her provacative Zatanna attire) in order to attract thugs so she can test her magic under threat, carrying pepper spray in case it ended up going south. The lead thug even says that it was like Maya was trying to get herself raped... before she turns them all into rabbits.
* WhatTheHellHero: During the Twelfth Angel incident, the entirety of Tech Division One is raring to go, ready to work their asses off to save the three Eva pilots... and Ritsuko's rather half-hearted about the entire thing, completely and utterly dismissing any ideas other than the “bomb it” strategy she proposed in canon. When Maya presents her with an alternative that might save the pilots ''and'' the Evangelions, she gets rebuffed with bullshit excuses and ends up taking matters into her own hands.
* [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]]: And it gets Maya like you wouldn’t believe.
-->''Oh, he’s cute when he smiles!''
