-> ''"You know, every once in a while, that terror comes back to me. I wonder whether I really have escaped from that hell. What if I actually lost my mind a long time ago... and I'm still in there... just seeing a delusion of us all chatting happily like this? That nightmare still terrifies me. And so, I need to constantly feel... truly feel that this isn't a dream. Hey, are you guys... really... real...? You aren't just a insane delusion I'm having inside that hell... right? Right? ... Right...?"''

->''He had always hated these cells.\\
Of course, cells were not supposed to be liked by its inhabitant, but in this case he doubted they would be legally accepted by any country that held true to the concept of human rights.\\
Not that NERV ever cared about those.\\
The only reason why any normal person didn't instantly suffer claustrophobia the moment he was pushed into the small confinement, barely offering any space that wasn't taken by the hard bed and the cold toilet, was the constant darkness. That was probably the worst psychological weapon the place held; taking away the ability to tell the flow of time, leaving you with nothing to do but to think.\\
Thinking was something Shinji had done a lot since... since he was brought here. Thinking and worrying.\\
Not knowing what happened with Asuka was the worst for him, though. He hadn't actually expected that they'd be allowed to be together, not even that anyone would answer his questions about her. But the longer he had to endure without any notice from her, the more it was driving him crazy.\\
For about the hundredth time, he mentally noted to himself to apologize once more for the month he had left her worrying and in doubt.\\
Just how long had he been there now? For all he knew the JSSDF could already be infiltrating the headquarters, aiming for the holding cells, where they'd be an almost as easy target as he had made out of himself that other time. Or perhaps the ruthless soldiers had already been there and hadn't cared about the cells, which would mean that no one was left to ever let them out.''

->What happens if you decide to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere cut off all contact]] and [[TheHermit live alone in a Horizon Realm]]? From experience, I know this is a bad choice. Archmages need human contact. Otherwise, it becomes difficult to deal with or understand Sleepers - you might even see them as bugs be studied or ignored, but never really respected. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Voormaas]] cut himself away from the world, deal with only his assassins and the occasional consor: his perspective became [[BlueAndOrangeMorality alien and unrealistic]]. When an Archmage's perception is distorted, what does that do to the world around him? A sociopath with godlike power is the ugly result.
