The Word of God links need to be redone, but breaking them all in that manner wasn't the way to do it...rewriting the entries would've been the better tactic. An edit reason would've been nice, too.
04:18:22 AM Aug 18th 2014
Uh yeah, that wall of links didn't read well at all.

Now that the first two chapters of Rebuild are up on and I've read them, I'm wondering if that story should get its own page either now or once more chapters are posted. Already there are enough differences that I forsee things getting confusing very fast if tropes from the rebuild are posted here.
11:52:17 PM Mar 24th 2013
I'm with you. Antelechy got a rebuild page too, so it makes sense to do the same for ND 2.0
12:30:41 AM Oct 22nd 2013
I'm willing to make it, if all there is no dissent on the need. There seems to be less traffic hereabouts than in the past, so I'll get on it when I finish my study procrastination presumably without any replies

I'm all for a new page for the Rebuild.
12:54:06 AM Dec 19th 2013
I'll start it then. Also need to put the original page on at least one index. I have time.
04:50:05 PM Jan 1st 2014
I've moved the tropes that apply to the rewrite to its appropriate page. Thought I should let you know.

Hey, fic author here. I have a question. What's with the negative reviews that start with them saying I have a legion of crazed fans who will hunt them down? Have they honestly read the thread on Spacebattles?

I mean, seriously. My cowriters criticize me a lot more harshly than any negative reviews do, and the negative reviews are more constructive criticism than anything. I'm not complaining...much...but do I really come across as having a cult following or a group of trained assassins at my command?
07:07:36 PM Jun 30th 2011
...yeah Yeah it does. Especially in some of the earlier threads.
08:09:00 AM Jul 6th 2011
Damn it. If I'm a cult leader, where are my nubile groupies?
02:56:36 PM Jul 6th 2011
Nubile? You started an Internet-geek cult, man. You have only yourself to blame.
01:08:00 PM Jan 17th 2013
I haven't checked any of the ND threads in a long time, so the last edit to the page is puzzling to me...what happened?
02:31:11 PM Jan 17th 2013
I based that edit mostly on a recent addition to the YMMV page. Apparently, following the Reset Button, the reader response was so overwhelmingly negative that the author made a post on the official forums about how the series needs to "die in a fucking fire", and he hasn't made a single post anywhere since.
08:55:42 PM Jan 17th 2013
To clarify, it's less reader response as it is reviews months after the fact that ignore chapters 103-110 like they scream at the top of their lungs I ignore season 4. I actually gave up on the story around the time the ND entry appeared on the Dethroning Moments page, truth be told. I just didn't bother saying anything.

Gah...I thought the reset made a lot of sense and it actually rekindled my interest in the fic. Don't let the idiots get you down, Gregg.
05:17:47 AM Feb 4th 2013
Constantly referring to something that is explicitly not a reset button as a reset button is one of the things. It's possible that the story has become too tropes heavy, yes. But at the same time, any attempt I've made to clarify it has been ignored because, well, no damn clue. I see it usually referred to as the Kubo effect. IE "Remember that popular writer? Well, now he sucks, so let's talk about how much he sucks." Hence, dead story.

And here I thought you were waiting for Rebuild of Eva 3.0 to see what new ideas you could incorporate into the story. Oh well, I still love your fic and have been hoping for it to continue but, well, I can see why you would want to wash your hands clean of it considering everything that has happened and can't really blame you if you do.

Anyways Gregg, I just wanted to let you know you still have at least 1 fan who loves your story and wants to see more.

I didn't discover the story until well after the last update to it and for what it's worth, I started enjoying it more after chapter 102.
11:48:46 PM Mar 24th 2013
Aaaand I'm too late to change history by convincing Landsman to tell the internet to shove it where the sun don't shine and keep writing. Seriously, I have some problems with the series too, but I'd hate to see it perma-nuked because of bitchy fantards refusing to accept the author's creative decision.
05:21:20 PM Mar 26th 2013
I will point out that the guy who edited the YMMV entry to include my 'Creator Breakdown' was the one who added the ND entry to the Dethroning Moment of Suck page, if I am not mistaken. Most of the 'fans' who are pleading with me the loudest to continue the story (see the damn spacebattles threads) are the ones who were calling me a retard the loudest. By and large, I believe that anyone who is asking me to continue this damn story is looking for something to point and laugh at.

Do all the Angels have a musical theme, or is it just Leliel and Zeruel?
09:55:50 AM Oct 15th 2010
You know, a lot of the fan-stories have been canonized by the author, making them into an Expanded Universe.

Is there some way that we can better relect that on these Tropes pages?

The only method I can thing of is to either put a [[ WMG:Expanded Universe Tropes ]] section at the end, with separate [[ folder ]]'s for each story (and for each page, such as for Awesome, Funny, Heartwarming and Shout Outs), or making a Fanfic Recs page.
09:53:11 PM Jan 7th 2011
The side stories need to be listed on the Eva fic page, for sure.
11:56:19 AM Sep 29th 2010
Anyone else wince when "Cherubim" or "Nephilim" are used as singular nouns? "-Im" is the plural affix (masculine plural for those who care); the singular form is "Cherub" and "Nephil". It's like saying "a cars".
05:22:15 PM Sep 29th 2010
Speaking for myself, this is one case that doesn't make my inner Grammar Nazi twitch, but I'll ask around.
02:24:50 PM Oct 4th 2010
Nephilim is used as the term applying to Rei in most of the sources I see, so I go with that. It's sort of the same as the Ireul/Iruel thing. Yes, it's incorrect, but it's how it's used in the source material. Cherubim I use because Cherubim is the name of the order of Angels, hence term "First Cherubim", etc.
04:02:28 PM Oct 4th 2010
Then again, we've already noticed that the NGE team really suck at foreign-language plurals. 'Children', anyone?
06:48:46 AM Aug 23rd 2010
The Alternative Character Interpretation entry needs either a lot of reworking, or most of the entries need to be stricken, as they don't fit the trope meaning. Gregg putting a new spin on certain characters does not count; it's the ambiguity of their actions/motives leading to multiple possible explanations.
07:13:56 AM Aug 23rd 2010
Just chop the examples that don't fit, I says. Remember to provide the reason in your edit, though.
07:15:39 PM Sep 1st 2010
Thanks, EarthScorpion, looks good.
01:52:37 PM Aug 18th 2010
Been reading one of the spin-off fanfics, NGE: Nobody Dies: Six AIs, One Continent. Got to first part of chapter 2...I have ask one thing.

Is one of the Keiworu dreaming about CTHULHU?! There's enough Eldritch Abominations flying around without granddaddy showing up. Though its fitting considering the continent...
07:20:23 AM Aug 23rd 2010
And now we have the truth out. It's one of the Baraqielim dreaming about... something.
09:12:26 AM Aug 2nd 2010
How much of the story has been completed and how many "seasons" are left? Just wondering.
11:02:24 PM May 15th 2010
Who started this page?
11:08:49 PM May 15th 2010
is it the author of the fic, or someone else?
12:33:43 AM May 22nd 2010
I honestly don't know. I found someone had made it on TV tropes some day, and it just went from there.

Made a page for another Landsman fic, Walking in the Shadow of Dreams.

Page author here. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who's made this page (or these pages, now that we've got quotes and Crowning Moments and a freaking character sheet) such a huge success. You rock, tropers. Now have some e-cookies.
06:51:50 PM Apr 24th 2010
Om nom nom nom nom
07:37:07 PM Apr 13th 2010
Has anyone noticed that the author has misspelled Ireul's name since his introduction?
08:16:16 PM Apr 13th 2010
It's always been Eva canon that the Angel's name is Iruel. We know that it's Ireul in the actual angelology...hasn't this already been addressed?
08:36:44 AM Apr 7th 2010
It occurs to me, what with Yui being alive and a substantial player in this fic (to say the least), at some point, Shinji needs to utter the line "Momma said knock you out".

Dr. McNinja pose optional.
08:44:06 AM Mar 31st 2010
The artwork needs more "toothy grin."
08:19:22 AM Apr 1st 2010's creepy enough as is. o.o
