Fandom Specific Plot: Neon Genesis Evangelion
- In Eva fanfiction, the Peggy Sue fic is extremely common, the most well-known being the doujin RE-TAKE. There are also fics out there that set up a For Want of a Nail situation, and then reveal that either the changes were actually caused by a Peggy Sue or some type of Eternal Recurrence situation. There are also Crossover fanfics with a Peggy Sue. It's reached the point where some fans think that Rebuild of Evangelion is one of these!
- Post-Third Impact fic. This can range from Shinji and Asuka by themselves in a wasteland, to everyone coming Back from the Dead and the world returned to (mostly) normal. Most of the time, Rei has vanished and Toji gets his leg back (both of which might be supported by canon).
- Fix Fics that work by making the setting Crazy Awesome. This was started by Shinji And Warhammer 40 K and continued by Nobody Dies and Mobile Fighter Evangelion. The controversial Neon Exodus Evangelion might be considered an Ur Example. Some people thought Rebuild was an official version... until 3.0 came into the picture. There is a mini-genre of Evangelion
- There have been several stories involving Shinji being raised by someone other than his uncle/teacher and exploring the For Want of a Nail aspect of how Shinji's personality changes. Sometimes Shinji gets raised on a product, like the aforementioned Shinji And Warhammer 40K.
- Reincarnation fics, especially Kaworu/Shinji Reincarnation Romance. As well as explaining how the different canon continuities are related to each other, this gets rid of the pesky "Kaworu is an Angel" problem. They are especially popular since the third movie of Rebuild of Evangelion.
