Green Eyed Monster / Fan Fiction

  • Referenced by name in Axis Powers Hetalia fanfic Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità. The green-eyed monsters within Germany and Japan grew to the point they began beating the crap out of each other. If Italy had not intervened in time, it would have gotten much worse.

Pierce enters the picture and displays obvious interest in Sanguis. Quinn takes an immediate dislike to the lieutenant and underestimates the latter's abilities. To Quinn's credit, he eventually realizes that he's judged Pierce unfairly and is upset that he's let his personal feelings affect his judgement.
  • The Child of Love:
    • In chapter 1 Shinji explains the “jealousy” concept to Rei. She tells she thinks she is indeed jealous, but she is not angry with him.

      "For such a dweeb, that Ikari's got chicks all around him, huh?" asked Touji.
      Kensuke nodded, still videotaping.
      Suddenly, his camera died.
      They heard a growl.
      It wasn't just your ordinary growl, from a dog or a wolf. This was a deep growl, the sort of growl that suggested monstrous origins, dark and shadowy nights, and the promise of endless hours of pain. It was accompanied by a blast of cold running down their spines. The two turned around, slowly.
      Rei was staring at Asuka, intensely, her face twisted in anger. Her fists were clenched, shaking slightly. It was hard to tell in the sunlight, but they thought they saw her blood red eyes glow brightly for a moment.
      "Ohshit," whispered Touji. "She's mad."

  • Doing It Right This Time: When Asuka suspects Rei can be in love with Shinji she starts to feel jealous… and then she stops herself, remembering her jealousy was used to turn her into a puppet and she is done with that.
    Asuka had only ever seen that smile once, directed at Shinji after Ritsuko -or Misato- finally got him back out of Unit-01. Now she wasn't continually seeing red and green both at once, she had to admit it was quite a nice smile. Rather cute, in fact.
    Then Asuka had to fight down a sudden stab of fear, anger and jealousy. Was it possible that Rei's feelings for Shinji were...??
    Arrrrgh. No, bad brain. No hedgehog impressions; that was where it all went wrong the first time round. Rei? Ayanami had deserved better than that, much less Rei Akagi.

It cannot understand why she would she would choose to cling to a mortal life to be with a flawed human male, when it offers her to an immortal existence with a supreme being like itself.
