Fanfic / Wandering Pilot

Go To

Wandering Pilot is a Queen's Blade/Neon Genesis Evangelion Crossover written by Mercaba, in which Shinji Ikari, during a fight with angels, is sucked into a portal that drops him off in Gainos. He rescues Leina Vance from bandits, and the two form a partnership. But Shinji's peculiar healing powers draw other key figures in Gainos like moths to a flame, and it's not long before the boy is in for the fight of his life.


At 45 chapters, it is completed.

This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Abduction Is Love: A resurrected Shizuka threatens Shinji with this after they have sex at the start of Chapter 20, telling him that she will have no choice but to force him to elope with her if he doesn't stop massaging her breasts.
  • Accidental Pornomancer: Shinji's healing powers have a side effect that usually results in this. Shinji is a deconstruction due to being confused as The Pornomancer when he isn't one by choice and all the drama that he suffers for it.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: This occurs among members of the female cast.
    • Notable examples are Echidna and Menace, who are bisexual in this crossover instead of homosexual as in-canon with both developing an interest (both sexual and romantic) in Shinji and the latter having been mentioned to have had men in her harem alongside women in her past whereas in canon it's only women. However, Echidna does still have a stronger preference for women, and it took time for them to fall for Shinji.
    • Advertisement:
    • Also applies to Shinji himself when putting his Ambiguously Bi aspect in canon into consideration as he's shown to only prefer women in this story.
  • Adaptational Villainy:
    • Airi remains a straight-up villain here, as Lana never becomes her Morality Pet.
  • Adapted Out: Kaworu Nagisa is nowhere to be found in the story.
    • The monkey sorceress who gave Tiina a pair of legs gets only a brief mention, and never appears in person.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Shinji gets hit with this. Echidna and Shizuka call him "Puppy" (or "Love"), Tiina calls him "Guppy", and Luna-Luna calls him "Sage".
  • The Ageless: Averted. Shinji's holy powers slow down his aging, along with the aging of those he has sex with, but they don't remove it altogether.
    Mercabainvoked: "[Shinji] is not immortal, he just ages slowly. His healing magic would do the same for anybody he wishes to use it on. Effectively healing the DNA damage that causes aging."
  • All Women Are Doms, All Men Are Subs: Usually inverted, as Shinji's lovers are content to let him pamper them during sex. Played straight with Claudette, who takes complete control in bed, much to Shinji's surprise.
    • Played straight in Chapter 8, in which Leina—at Shinji's insistence—sits on his face and, after some prodding, takes control during the tryst as a way of "punishing" him for sleeping with Alleyne.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Some of the female cast are noted to be noticeably muscular while still remaining physically attractive. They include Risty, Claudette, and Cattleya.
  • Arch-Enemy: Even though Melona is only The Dragon, Shinji hates her with a burning passion way more than her boss the Swamp Witch. note  For this reason, he always tries to kill her whenever they meet. Melona, in turn, is obsessed with destroying everything Shinji cares about and turning him into her obedient Sex Slave.
  • Arc Welding: The Impacts and Angel attacks from Evangelion are part of a broken ritual by the angels in Gainos. Rei was a product of the ritual, which is key to stopping the Angels for good.
  • Artistic License – Physics: Although justified as it's a magic staff, Shinji's primary weapon is light for a normal human like him, yet a single strike is like that of a punch from EVA-01.
  • Asshole Victim: Melona is brutally killed by Echidna in the penultimate chapter, with nary a tear being shed.
  • Authority in Name Only: Gainos has had many queens, but never a king. So when Shinji's first official wife, Claudette, becomes queen, the people of Gainos who know who he is referring to him as the king, but aside from the loyalty of his guards, he doesn't seem to have any official power. This changes in the final chapter, where his harem gathers and decides to make him the eternal king, with the Queen's Blade tournament being a private affair amongst themselves in which the winner gets to be his "official" wife until the next tournament.
  • Babies Ever After:
    • Some of Shinji's lovers end up pregnant with his children. They include: Luna-Luna, Risty, Claudette, Echidna, and Tomoe.
    • Tragically subverted in the case of Echidna's first child at the hands of Melona in Chapter 44.
  • Back from the Dead: Shinji's healing powers extend to healing fatal wounds, as Shizuka can attest.
  • Balanced Harem: While Shinji would much rather prefer to be with Leina and only her, he treats the rest of his flock just as well.
  • Bash Sisters: Menace and Tiina. They later become in-laws.
  • Bedmate Reveal: At the end of Chapter 12, Elina tricks a drunken Shinji into sleeping with Risty instead of Leina. He learns his mistake the next morning.
  • Blessed with Suck: On one hand, Shinji is capable of healing severe injuries or relieving sore feet after a day of walking, and it allows him to stay younger for longer periods of time. On the other hand, his Healing Factor leaves him (and anyone else he uses it on) sexually aroused when used, and if someone is torturing him, they can inflict wounds that would be fatal to anyone else without fear of killing him.
  • Bodyguard Babes: The King's Women. Unsurprisingly, Bodyguard Crush applies to them all.
  • Boxing Lessons for Superman: Shinji gets a lot of combat training from his lovers, since their world is dangerous and he is often targeted for his abilities. Staff training from Alleyne; Holy Pose training from Melpha; and hand-to-hand combat training from Tiina and Echidna.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: As in-canon, Risty is subjected to this by Aldra during the events of the Queen's Blade tournament in the capital.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Yuit, at least when she's talking to Shinji.
  • Broken Bird: Echidna becomes this after Melona kills her child. Shinji later helps her regain her confidence.
  • Chick Magnet: Shinji, Up to Eleven. Lampshaded by Asuka.
    Asuka: Another one? Seriously, what is with this world’s fixation on you?
  • Child by Rape: Echidna tricks Shinji into impregnating her towards the end of the story. After the fetus is eaten by Melona, he gets her pregnant again in the finale, this time consensually.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Melona brutally tortures Shinji for almost two weeks in Chapter 10.
  • Combat Medic: Shinji serves as this to whichever group he is in.
  • Comedic Spanking: In Chapter 24, Elina tries to interfere with Shinji and Leina's plans to go to his world, prompting Risty to toss her Over the Shoulder and spank her a few times to silence her.
  • Commonality Connection: How Claudette ends up bonding with Shinji, both having Abusive Parents who outright neglected them for selfish interests.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: At the end of the story, Elina is sent to Shinji's world for two weeks. A relatively minor punishment for such a wretched person, until she realizes that two weeks in his world equals eight years in Gainos. She's later brought back after a year and is forced to serve on Liliana's pirate ship for a few years.
  • Cooldown Hug: Shinji briefly comforts Asuka with this before it suddenly becomes an Interrupted Cooldown Hug at the hands, or rather dagger, of Echidna in Chapter 42
  • Corrupt Church: The church in Gainos is an obvious Expy of the Catholic Church, with all the power and corruption it had during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance being shown in all its decadent glory.
  • Covert Pervert: Melpha really likes having Shinji suckle her breasts.
  • Crash-Into Hello: How Shinji meets Melpha. Surprise-surprise, Marshmallow Hell is involved.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Melpha's holy powers only work on the undead, and she's too much of a pacifist to use her mace effectively. That being said, she utterly spanks anyone her powers do work on: she single-handedly defeated Airi and Menace when they tried to kidnap Shinji, and later not only wiped out all the skeleton pirates on Lilianna's ship, but ultimately destroyed the ship itself. Quite impressive from someone who is considered to be the weakest character in canon.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Nanael is an arrogant Jerkass who looks down on humans, especially women, but she is legitimately one of the most powerful characters in the story. And thanks to Shinji, she has an unlimited supply of Holy Milk, keeping her at full strength.
  • Culture Clash: While nothing escalates, the women of Gainos and the residents of Tokyo-3 are stunned by how the differences between the two cultures. More specifically, it's Shinji's interactions with all of the stunning women from Gainos. Ironically, in real life, the age of sexual consent in Japan is 13. Shinji is 14 and thus, more than old enough to do his sexual activities legally in either world.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Melpha has a habit of tripping over herself and falling on top of Shinji, squishing his face between her breasts. Though "cute" is a bit of an understatement.
  • D-Cup Distress: Melpha is ashamed of her utterly massive bust, but is relieved when Shinji doesn't mind them.
  • Demonic Possession:
    • The Swamp Witch's plan for Shinji. She briefly succeeds, but Shinji's harem quickly puts a stop to it.
    • A heroic example when Yui possesses Leina during the Final Battle.
  • Determinator: Played quite darkly with Melona, who is absolutely obsessed with butchering all of Shinji's loved ones and making him her "pet".
  • Does Not Like Men: Elina, due to being in love with her sisters.
  • Door Stopper: This story ends after 45 chapters, approximately 615,000 words.
  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Averted. Shinji is perfectly willing to fight women if they threaten him or someone he cares about, and Elina's cruelty towards him is neither Played for Laughs nor is it tolerated by his Battle Harem. Asuka's mean-spirited behavior isn't tolerated, either.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: Averted.
    • Melona's brutal sexual assaults on Shinji are not portrayed as titillating in any sort of way.
    • Echidna, at some unspecified point, has sex with Shinji while he's not entirely conscious, getting pregnant as a result. While not given the same amount of severity as Melona's actions, it's still not treated as being in the right, and Melona extracts the fetus and eats it in Chapter 44.
  • Driven by Envy: Why Asuka wants to go to Gainos.
  • Dude, Where's My Reward?: Shizuka rescues Shinji from Melona's clutches in Chapter 10, but he spends the rest of the day being fussed over by Leona and Alleyne, leaving Shizuka somewhat resentful that they're hogging all his attention. Fortunately, Shinji didn't forget her: they share a sleeping bag that night and spend most of it cuddling because he feels safer when she's near him.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Shinji goes through many ups and downs throughout the story, but damn, does he get a happy ending. To wit, he's Happily Married to an army of voluptuous, drop-dead gorgeous Action Girls; he has more money than he could have ever dreamed of; he possesses a Healing Factor that gives him extended youth, which he can give to his wives through sex, meaning he can spend more time with them; and he's a KING!
  • 11th-Hour Ranger:
    • Misato joins the party for a final battle against the Swamp Witch.
    • Sigui also joins, but only because she refuses to let the Swamp Witch have Shinji.
    • Yui Ikari comes out of the staff to possess Leina and fight the Swamp Witch.
  • Enemy Mine: Defied. Melona claims in Chapter 22 that Nanael approached her at some point and tried to enlist her aid in getting rid of Aldra. While Melona does express interest in killing Aldra, she expects Shinji to be her "payment", something none of the heroes will accept. Shinji viciously declares that he and his lovers don't need Melona's help, and sends her packing with a Holy Pose.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Elina's only good quality is that she genuinely cares about her sisters.
  • Fanservice: It's a Queen's Blade story. What'd you expect?
  • Fantastic Racism: Other characters tend to mock Shinji for being an "Olive," which they call those similar to Gainos' equivalent to Japanese.
  • Flirtatious Smack on the Ass: Shizuka gives Shinji's butt an affectionate swat in Chapter 25. Later, Tarnyang spanks him a few times to test how firm his butt is.
  • Foil: Sigui to Melpha. Melpha is a humble, compassionate pacifist; Sigui is a proud, hot-headed Knight Templar who takes great delight in killing "heretics". Melpha is in love with Shinji; Sigui despises him for this reason. Melpha thinks Nanael is an archangel and worships her; Sigui knows otherwise.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Nanael is an obnoxious Jerkass, but she's dependable.
  • From a Single Cell: Melona can regenerate from even the tiniest amount of slime.
  • Gag Boobs: Cattleya and Melpha have the biggest busts in the story.
  • Green-Eyed Monster:
    • Elina is excessively jealous of Shinji "stealing" her two sisters.
    • Asuka is the same when Shinji has his new life with all his ladies just as she realizes her own feelings for him.
  • Happiness in Slavery: Branwen. Shinji really hates having a slave and keeps offering to free her, but she refuses every time. The epilogue even reveals that he eventually did manage to remove her slave tattoo, and then she promptly hunted Dogura down and forced him to brand her with a new one.
  • Has a Type: As with Mercaba's other Evangelion fics, Shinji, possibly without realizing it, has a thing for woman who are older, taller, and well-endowed.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Shinji can utilize this trope quite effectively, as his army of super-sexy wives can attest.
  • How We Got Here: The first half of Chapter 26 chronicles Shinji's date and tryst with Tiina, and it ends with Tiina waking up in Shinji's bedroom to the sounds of Shinji having sex with Echidna. The second half shows Echidna and Shizuka's less-than-friendly interactions with Misato, ending with the former walking up to Shinji and asking him to make love to her, which he agrees to do.
  • Joker Immunity: Melona, until Chapter 44.
  • The Juggernaut: Melona. None of the heroes can truly take her on in a one-on-one fight bar Echidna, and the only reason they've ever been able to defeat her is because her sadism frequently impedes her better judgment.
  • Karma Houdini: Elina. Sure, she suffers a Cool and Unusual Punishment that will undoubtedly make her miserable, but after everything she's done, most of the characters think it's too lenient.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • Melona does this as she walks. Prominent misdeeds include raping Shinji (both physically and verbally) in order to feed off his power and to stick it to Leina; posing as the pope so she can rape the priestesses; killing and eating peasant girls; posing as Ymir and acting as a Treacherous Advisor to Queen Claudette; and, most atrociously, extracting a fetus from its mother's womb and eating it!
    • Elina's cruel behavior towards Shinji, ranging from attempting to sabotage his relationship with Leina to attempting to give him an aneurism — twice!
  • Killed Off for Real: Echidna kills Melona in Chapter 44 after the slime monster brutally murders her unborn child.
  • Kinky Spanking: Alleyne is a fan of this.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Shinji still doesn't know that his mother's soul resides in the EVA-01. Whereas all the others find out, starting with Tomoe.
  • Marry Them All: Downplayed. Officially, Shinji is only married to six women: Claudette, Annelotte, Tiina, Menace, Nowa, and Melpha. Unofficially, he treats all of the haremettes like wives, and they see themselves as such.
  • Marshmallow Hell: Shinji tends to be pressed into the bosoms of his haremettes, sometimes more than one at the same time. Melpha, being the bustiest of his paramours, tends to subject him to this the most, with their first meeting featuring it.
  • Mrs. Robinson: Shinji is 14. His youngest paramour, Leina, is 19 (and since time moves faster in Gainos than it does in Tokyo, she's 23 by the time he returns). The rest range from somewhere between a decade older than him too, in Menace's case, centuries, perhaps millennia!
  • Nice Guy: Shinji. It's one of his most appealing characteristics since it differs him from the more perverted and misogynistic majority of males in Gainos.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero:
    • Shizuka gets Shinji officially married to Claudette by accident when she forges his signature on a document that she thought would marry him to Leina.
    • When Shinji tells Echidna that she'd make a wonderful mother, she takes his words a lot more seriously than even he expected—by getting him to impregnate her while he's not entirely in a sound state of mind. The unborn baby is cruelly murdered by Melona.
  • Not So Above It All: Crosses over with Beware the Nice Ones. Shinji may be a modern man, but after taking the throne, he notably retains the Fang, even allowing them to spy on his haremettes in case they're planning to do something dangerous behind his back.
  • Outside-Context Problem: The Queen's Blade characters know a world surrounded by men who are perverted assholes with few exceptions. Then Shinji came along, who can not only win if he tried but also has a saintly personality. While some women attempt to kill him (Sigui and Elina, for example), others are easily swayed by him... in a good way.
  • Parental Substitute: Cattleya serves as this toward Shinji.
  • Pet the Dog: Even Elina can't deny that Shinji is a Supreme Chef, and she later admits to herself that he actually is good husband material.
  • Physical God: Shinji becomes this by the end of the story, possessing an unmatched Healing Factor that keeps him healthy, young, and capable of surviving pretty much anything; and a mastery of Holy Poses.
  • Porn with Plot: As in Queen's Blade, beneath all the sex and titillating moments, there's a no-holds-barred fighting tournament and a war with a monstrous sorceress going on.
  • Pragmatic Pansexuality: As Elina's subordinate in the Assassins of the Fang throughout the Rebellion arc, the otherwise heterosexual Asuka has to allow Elina to regularly have her way with her (among other things) as part of living up to Elina's expectations lest she lose her "only safe place" in Gainos. Rei, who's among the ranks of Gainos' angels by then, even wondered to herself if Asuka was actually bisexual or only forced into it by Elina's whims in Chapter 33.
  • Put on a Bus: Thanks to Elina's meddling, Leina disappears from the story from chapter 24, and doesn't return until chapter 39.
  • Reality Is Unrealistic: One of Misato’s peeves about Shinji’s new life is he’s underaged to be marrying and sleeping with so many women. While polygamy is one thing, modern-day Japan would allow Shinji to perform sexual activities as he’s above the age of consent at 13.
  • Rescue Romance: Not immediate, but Shinji becomes notably more eager to be close to Shizuka after she rescues him from Melona in Chapter 10.
  • Retcon: Originally, Shinji and Melpha had sex at the end of Chapter 15 while Nanael got her rocks off from watching them. The author later decided this was too rushed and changed it to Shinji refusing sex specifically because he feels that he and Melpha don't know each other well enough to cross that line yet.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Yui Ikari, naturally.
  • Secret-Keeper: The women of the original Queen's Blade keep to themselves about Yui Ikari being the soul within Shinji's EVA-01 staff.
  • Sex God: Shinji is apparently a god in bed, as his lovers can attest... or he's just better than the men they've previously met. Same difference either way.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: How Alleyne greets Shinji after he returns from his world. They then have non-stop sex for several days.
  • Slave Collar: Tiina gives Shinji a special earring that, unbeknownst to him, binds him to her, body and soul. This becomes a Chekhov's Gun later on, as she's able to use it to restrain the Swamp Witch when she pulls a Grand Theft Me on him.
  • Spanner in the Works: Nanael screws Gendo and SEELE big time.
  • Standard Hero Reward: Quite a number of Shinji’s love interests, though far beyond the cliched storyline and even interesting variation.
    • The first wife is not Leina, despite being the most favorite, but Alleyne, with Claudette coming second after that. Both of them are the result after saving Leina multiple times, with Alleyne meeting Shinji after saving her that leads to a Student/Teacher Romance and Claudette becoming his next one following her father’s interest in obtaining the boy’s power. Eventually, Leina finally becomes married to him after quite a long time, with the Count passing away, Shinji becoming king, and nothing else stopping them.
    • Tiina became another wife after Shinji rescues her from the slave trade, along with a number of bonding moment and consultation from her father.
  • State Sec: The Fang. It's interesting to note that Shinji doesn't dissolve the organization after taking power.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Some members of Shinji's harem are quite tall.
  • Stripperific: Several of the haremettes wear very skimpy clothes. Late in the story, Shinji gives his guards permission to design their uniforms, and they dress inn Chainmail Bikinis in order to entice him.
  • Supreme Chef:
    • Shinji. His desserts are so good that Elina spontaneously orgasmed after trying one.
    • Nyx is a talented cook as well. In fact, she and Shinji bond while cooking together.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Nyx has one, which also happens to be a Yandere.
  • Tears of Remorse: Asuka breaks into these at the end of the final confrontation between her and Shinji after being taken aback by Shinji responding to her onslaught by affectionately caressing her and giving her reassurance in Chapter 42.
  • The Tease: Shizuka and Echidna, with Shinji even comparing the former to Misato.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Sigui hates Shinji and even after the Swamp Witch is defeated, she bears a grudge against him. She doesn't kill him because of her devotion to Melpha and bigger threats who want him.
  • Their First Time: Shinji and number of his wives, but Leina and Alleyne are the most prominent.
  • Three-Way Sex: Happens a few time, especially in the final chapter.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: All of Shinji's paramours are taller than him.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Funikura, Nyx's demonic staff. It doesn't like Shinji's holy powers, but gives no indication that it wants him dead, nor does it seem to have a problem with him being in a relationship with Nyx. If anything, it seems to ship them, since Nyx actually becomes more assertive thanks to Shinji's encouragement.
  • Top Wife:
    • Leina. Shinji would prefer that their relationship be monogamous, but his status as a Chick Magnet makes that impossible. She doesn't mind, though she did assert her status in Chapter 7 by defeating Alleyne. On the other hand, this is pretty much the reward for winning the next Queen’s Blade—as long as the winner is an existing haremette.
    • By the time of the finale, it is strongly hinted that Melpha is slowly beginning to claim this position. Rei even makes it a personal mission to ensure that Shinji doesn't spend too much time with her, as she's developed a talent for working on his mind.
  • Trapped in Another World:
    • Shinji's ordeal in the story.
    • Echidna, Shizuka, Tiina, and Nyx all end up in Tokyo-3 during the Time Skip.
    • Elina is forced to temporarily endure this at the end of the story as punishment for her actions as leader of the Assassins of the Fang.
  • Up to Eleven: Melona was already a rotten bitch in-canon, but she's a downright psychopath in this story.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Gendo undergoes one upon learning what Shinji's been up to and how it totally derails the plan for Third Impact. He gets better... somewhat.
  • Villainous Friendship: Elina and Asuka get along rather well.
    • Or so it seems initially, but this is subverted once the toxic nature of their relationship is made apparent and given how Asuka feels about her relationship with Elina, alongside her situation in Gainos, by the time the story reaches Chapter 42.
    Asuka: I have done so many cool things here!I am the co-leader of the Assassins of the Fang! I am the lover of Lady Elina! I am sought after, I am important here!...
    These were not happy comments or boasts, she was screaming them, hurling them as if they were accusations.
    • Also, on Elina's part, it's made clear that she only likes Asuka the same way one would to a pet or a toy.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Shinji's Battle Harem, every damned one of them.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Shinji's eyes are quite appealing. Even Elina gets lost in them in Chapter 12.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?:
    • Cattleya and her family vanish from the story completely after Chapter 24.
    • Airi also disappears by the end of the same chapter.
    • The Rei clones that disappeared before the Angel attacks ended never got covered.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Shinji briefly has this reaction towards Echidna after she unceremoniously interrupted his moment with a remorseful Asuka via knife attack that would have been fatal for Asuka, as Irma can attest to, if not for Shinji's healing ability in Chapter 42.
  • Willfully Weak: If Shinji were serious about fighting others, he would easily outclass them in the Mighty Glacier category due to his inexplicably powerful staff and his Healing Factor. Being the Nice Guy he is, unless you get on his bad side, Shinji tends to hold back dramatically. The women of Gainos comment on this, finding it admirable or an annoyance.
  • Worf Had the Flu:
    • Leina has her menstrual period early on in the story, and Shinji's interference is the only thing that saves her from a hungry wolf, as she's too exhausted to kill it herself.
    • Pregnancy can make it much harder to get in a fight, as Echidna tragically learns in Chapter 44.
  • World of Buxom: Only a small handful of women in Gainos have small breasts.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Asuka does this twice. First, she pretends to be brainwashed, and later, she claims she is pregnant, only to reveal she had an abortion.
  • Wretched Hive: The city of Gainos is depicted as this. Shinji comments how Tokyo-3 is also this trope but had a far better way of hiding it. That changes once Shinji becomes king.
  • Yandere:
    • Risty becomes one after Aldra brainwashes her. She decides to kill off Shinji's other lovers, or throw them in prison and leave them to rot, so she can have him all to herself. Once the brainwashing is removed, she gets better.
    • Echidna is this to a lesser degree. While she never expresses a desire to kill off the competition, she does manipulate Shinji into getting her pregnant, with the intent of using the child as leverage to get him to focus his attention on her. And even before that, she expressed an interest in keeping him for herself, though she never acts upon it.
    • Nyx, at least when Funikura influences her. She considers kidnapping Shinji due to a paranoid belief that the other haremettes would make him forget her, but after a failed attempt to do so, Alleyne talks her out of it, and she cools down.


How well does it match the trope?
