New Perspective Evangelion
is a Neon Genesis Evangelion
fanfic by Dartz-IRL.
FFN gives the following summary: Newton's First law. An Object in motion will remain in motion until acted on by an external force. The events of Neon Genesis Evangelion, as seen by the Fourth Child. Self Insert:ACC.
Tropes found in this work:
- Abusive Parents: Asuka's father is the classic "tear your kid down if they're less than perfect" parent and, according to Asuka, only acknowledges her as his daughter when it's to give himself some attention or fame.
- All There in the Manual: The E-Mail Noriko sent? Can be found in the Evageeks thread.
- Berserk Button: Kaworu's very existence seems to be one for Noriko.
- Boom, Headshot: Noriko name-drops the trope when, during the mission to secure Unit 04 from the Americans, she takes out Asuka during the first combat simulation with her Eva's pistol.
- Creepy Child: Rei and Kaworu, of course.
- Kaworu should be noted as having knowledge of how Noriko got to the Evaverse, which manages to make him creepier then canon.
- Crossover: Kinda one with Haruhi Suzumiya.
- Deadpan Snarker: Noriko's inner thoughts are surprisingly sarcastic.
- Door Stopper: It's twelve chapters in and over 150,000 words long. There've only been two Angels featured so far (the 8th and 9th, but still).
- Eloquent In My Native Tongue: Subverted. The original Noriko was a native Japanese speaker who could barely speak English, but the poor sod controlling her reigns now is a native English speaker who must relearn Japanese. Something that very nearly gets her into trouble with the NERV higher-ups.
- Follow the Leader: Quietly based on the original I was a Teenage Dummy Plug by Foxboy.
- Gender Bender: Deconstructed. Takes a rather more realistic approach than others.
- Genre Savvy: Noriko, natch. (Also Kaworu, but to a lesser extent)
- Nuclear Option: After N2 Weapons fail to destroy the orbiting Tenth Angel, an attack using more powerful nuclear munitions is ordered.
- The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: Zig-zagged regarding Noriko, and deconstructed in regards to whether it's good, bad or in-between.
- Oceanic Airlines: The plane crash was an Oceanic Airlines flight, and the airline is apparently run by one John Locke.
- Self Insert: a shockingly good one at that!
- Shout-Out: At times played with jarring unsubtlety.
- Show Within a Show: Blue Aru, a stand in for the actual Evangelion series.
- Tsundere: Noriko notes herself as one, but also thoroughly deconstructs the concept.
