''FanFic/NeonExodusEvangelion'' by Creator/EyrieProductionsUnlimited
* ''Recommended by'': @/{{Crazael}}, @/{{Kchasm}}, @/StClair, @/LooneyToons, @/{{Zemyla}}, lanky
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopses'':
** It's ''Evangelion'' mixed with a fairly large selection of games, movies and tv shows and transplanted to the authors' home town of Worcester, Massachusetts.
** What if the son of [[Franchise/TombRaider Lara Croft]] had been drafted into the Evangelion program after Shinji bailed upon Rei's disastrous test, and instead of simply putting up with his kidnapping he did the logical thing when presented with the potential end of the world and kicked ass where he could and made himself a pain in the ass for the administration of Gendo and company?

''[[http://www.heavens-feel.com/elmer/evad1.txt Evangelion II: D.E.L.T.A. Invasion]]'', Original by unknown, [[MSTing MST'd]] by Jinas & Rick R. Mortis (Also avaiable [[http://www.svamcentral.org/ewic/ms-nge.html here]])
* ''Recommended by'': @/{{Tacitus}} & {{Tropers/{{Chrissie}} Mc Napkins}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Tom Dyron -- 16-year-old fighter pilot, rock musician, and championship wrestler -- joins the ''Eva'' team some time after the defeat of the Angels (utterly ignoring the last few episodes of the show) to deal with the latest threat -- the Invadors. Yes, that's spelled right. In the process, he drinks a lot, wrestles, bags Asuka, drinks some more, sets up Shinji with Rei, pilots a spaceship, blows up a planet, wrestles, gets the other pilots to join his band, and talks like Steve Austin. There's also John, who contributes nothing to the plot, but is special.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1046500/1/I_Was_A_Teenage_Dummy_Plug I Was a Teenage Dummy Plug]]'' by Foxboy
* ''Recommended by'': @/LooneyToons
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis:'' When the mind/soul/personality of the twenty-something and ''male'' Logan Goodhue wakes up inside a Rei Ayanami clone floating in the Reiquarium, it's just the beginning of an experience that is by turns terrifying, exhilarating and hallucinogenic. Quickly discovered and forced by Gendo into the dual roles of Rei's long-lost twin sister Emi Arizona Ayanami and the new object of Shinji's protective instincts, Logan does what little things he can to derail Gendo's plans and regain some control over his life. Complicating matters, it appears that Logan's set of ''Evangelion'' [=DVDs=] came over with him... and why do some of the Angels address Emi as "Gabriel"?

* ''Status:'' Dormant
* ''Synopsis:'' A young Irishman finds himself forceably inserted into the Evangelion world -- by being forceably inserted into the brain and body of Noriko Nagato, a 14-year-old Japanese girl who has "miraculously" survived a plane crash, only to discover she is now the Fourth Child. But how did he get there? What did that weird dream with Kaoru Nagisa mean? Why are the real Noriko's memories coming back?

* ''Recommended by'': @/{{Willbyr}}
* ''Status:'' Complete[[note]]''Tenant'' and ''Delete and Reboot'' are complete; ''End of File'' is nearly complete but is on hold, as its conclusion contains major spoilers for ''The Pilot of Room 403''.[[/note]]
* ''Synopsis:'' Thanks to some Leliel-induced universe warping, [[AuthorAvatar Smith]] finds himself thrust into the NGE universe. His foreknowledge of the franchise allows him to help himself eke out a place in Tokyo-3, try to help NERV better overcome the Angels, and actually be a positive force in the Children's lives, in his own slightly twisted way. Everything seems to be working out fine, or at least a little better than canon, until a major twist involving demons from Smith's own past threatens to turn the future into a horror many times worse than the Third Impact we all know about. The entire story consists of ''Tenant'', ''Delete and Reboot'' (supplemental stories), and ''End of File'', which is exactly what it sounds like.

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8749207/1/EVA-Sessions-You-Can-Never-Trust Eva Sessions: You Can (Never) Trust]]'' by Gob Hobblin ([[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1517150/chapters/3207107 alternate link]])
* ''Recommended by:'' Mach Rider 1985
* ''Status:'' Ongoing
* ''Synopsis:'' Deconstruction. The Americans send a new-style EVA and Pilot to NERV-Tokyo. He seems very good... frighteningly good. And he is even more unhinged, unstable and dangerously psychotic that the canon pilots. People distrust and fear him, Misato can not stand him and wants him to stay away from her pilots, Shinji pities him, Asuka hates him and keeps clear of him, Rei shuns him (and he does not care for either of those girls at all)... and the three Children find themselves tested not only by the Angels beyond the walls, but the Devils that reside within.
* ''Pairing'': Shinji/Asuka, Misato/Kaji
* ''Tags'': Suspense, Drama, Romance
