Alpha and Omega
is an Neon Genesis Evangelion
/ Mass Effect
crossover fic written by Xed Alpha.
Set several years after the end of the Reaper War, Evangelion Unit-01, having been contained outside of spacetime for eternities, finally breaks free, long after the end, crashing into the side of Omega as a result. An Aria who has been exposed to paragon Shepard discovers a slightly older Shinji Ikari contained within. Soon after, due to Aria's position and political machinations, various parties begin moving into place. Needs a Better Description
This fic, while not originally intending it, eventually ended up being somewhat of a romance
Takes a little bit to get into, but is a fun read either way. Just a placeholder for now, but add tropes as you spot 'em.
- After the End: In both cases, an extreme one in Shinji's case...
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: EDEN, though implied intended to be this way.
- Cool Starship: The Normandy (of course), Aria's Elbrus and later on, Shinji's Normandy-Class (Ayanami variant) Thunder Child.
- Dating Catwoman: Possibly the basis of the entire fic. It's Shinji Ikari and Aria T'Loak, possibly doubles as a Crack Pairing, but somehow works out pretty good.
- Oh Crap: Jona Sederis has one after she comments that all that matters with merceneries in the end is who has the biggest gun, EDEN responds by activating Unit-01.
- Older Than They Look: The asari, of course. And Shinji, who looks about 18 but is revealed in fact to be at least 1680000000000000000000000000000000 years old by this point.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Probably not a good idea to be on Shinji's bad side when this happens. Later EDEN also when she activates the dummy system.
- Spaceship Girl: This is essentially EDEN to a T. Basically a mecha ninja-Misato with even more extreme Mama Bear tendencies than normal.
