Isn't it obvious?... You and me, Shinji Ikari. We're going to save the world.Series Thirty and Three Quarters
(also known as Shinji and the Doctor
) is a Doctor Who
/ Neon Genesis Evangelion
crossover written by a troper known variously as philopoemen and machiavelli. One miserable, rainy day, fourteen-year-old Shinji Ikari meets a very odd man who calls himself the Doctor on a train. Unfortunately, something else
has followed them on-board. That's when the screaming and the running starts... and when Shinji's life starts to change. Because the Doctor is in, and where he goes, chaos is sure to follow...
The series serves two purposes: first, it's an excuse to have the various unresolved questions and mysteries of the Evangelion universe investigated by a - let's say - uniquely qualified individual
. Second, it gives Shinji a mentor figure
who - while having his own issues - still brings a lot of experience
to the table. The question is, will it be enough to change the destiny of humanity?

In addition to the character tropes present in the original work, this story provides examples of:
- Author Tract: The author admits that the Doctor's speech to Misato is this, pointing out the FridgeLogic how Shinji barely has enough support to cope with and how eventually he'll reach the breaking point of becoming another Child Soldier like Rei.
- Not So Different: The Doctor sees a lot of himself in Shinji, and decides to stick around to help him.
