Fanfic / Destiny: Gospel of a New Genesis

Go To

What happens when you take Neon Genesis Evangelion, a story of how humanity wants to die on its own terms, and mix it with Destiny, where a giant god ball spaceship gives humanity space magic?

Shipping. Lots and lots of shipping.

And Destiny: Gospel of a New Genesis

The fic can also be read here on FanFiction.Net and here on Archive of Our Own.

This fic contains examples of:

  • After the End: Destiny's Collapse happened at some point previously. It was slightly different, however. There having been a different apocalypse shortly beforehand called The Cataclysm, which vaguely correspond to the events of Evangelion.

  • Alternate Universe Fic: To both franchises. Aside from the below mentioned Fusion Fic elements, there is the fact the Shinji and Asuka haven't even met.
  • Cataclysm Backstory: Appropriately called The Cataclysm. The events of Evangelion happened near the start of it, and it directly preceded the Collapse.
  • Fusion Fic: Elements from both franchise influence the other:
    • Adam and The Traveller are one and the same, with the Katsuragi Expedition and Second Impact having been the start of the Golden Age.
    • Ahamkara were apparently involved in The Cataclysm, and Shinji fought them.
    • All of the Fallen Houses are named after the Angels.
    • The factions of The City are now named after Eva factions (SEELE, NERV, etc.).
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: The crux of the plot: Shinji has become a Guardian, and thus has to adjust to the millennium-long time gap.
  • Forever War: According to the Author, The Cataclysm lasted for ~100 years. The Collapse lasted for three centuries, and the time since has been close to eight centuries.
