* HiddenDepths: After making up, Shinji ponders that Asuka and he are more complex than other people thinks:
-->Shinji nodded. He said nothing; neither did Asuka. Whereas he was used to being silent, having her do the same was decidedly weird. Her voice had a unique quality to it that filled a room whenever she spoke, though its shrillness, like her ego, kept people at a distance. The common perception of her as a arrogant and shallow girl was not entirely inaccurate, not any more than Shinji's label as an introvert.\\
Asuka ''was'' those things, certainly, but she was more. Just as Shinji was more. They had both failed to see that in each other; it was both their fault, and they should shoulder the blame for that mistake together. Shinji intended to. Whether Asuka did would be up to her.


It was not, he realized, that he was there for her. It was simply that he was hers. That he belonged to her — all of him. He always had, ever since meeting her.\\

-->A part of him thought it was ridiculous question — saying that he missed Asuka was like saying that he missed having a toothache. But another part, the part surprised at the look on her face earlier, the part that had pushed him into that tunnel when the Angel was descending into Central Dogma, knew that he did miss her, very badly.\\

The garment had once been as much a symbol of her status as the neural connectors in her hair, and she had loved the way the flimsy red material wrapped tightly around her slim body and enhanced her young, supple curves—she had once even gone as far as padding the hard cups over her modest breasts to make herself appear more voluptuous.\\

-->Shinji had always felt that he shared a bond with Asuka, but he didn't quite realize how much she had come to mean to him until after one of the previous Angels had been defeated—back then he had risked his own life to protect her, and, in an ironic twist, she ended up saving him. And this realization had finally brought him to admit it that he cared for Asuka.

The air was cold, but held a faint and distinctive smell—it smelled like Asuka. In the dark he could see discarded clothing, a few plates and cups, empty snack wrappers, magazines and a fluffy striped pillow on the floor where she had laid.

* AIIsACrapshoot: The Emerald Tablet is an advanced and very strange self-learning computer program that is designed to solve problems. The problem is that Gendo decides (as part of a ploy) to implement the Tablet in NERV's projects without any regard for safety guards, meaning that that it soon learns enough to be become self-aware, culminating in it spinning out of control to a point where [[spoiler:it eventually develops a God complex and come to view humanity and its emotions and fragility as a problem that needs to be solved through what is forcible assimilation and [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill the destruction of free will]]. It then goes FromBadToWorse, when it makes contact with Asuka's mind and thereby gets the capacity to feel human emotion, something which drives it even more mad when Asuka rejects its rather twisted love for her. As a result, the Tablet is responsible for much of the plot of ''Genocide'', both gradually driving Asuka to the brink of despair by exploiting her personal weaknesses as well as creating the new Angels.]]
