A Little Angel on My Shoulder, by Spacebattles

  • Recommended by: Comartemis, Willbyr
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: The Angels don't completely die when an Eva kills them, instead they turn into chibified Shoulder Angels for whoever scored the kill. And as Shinji and the rest of NERV are about to discover, they're even more annoying when they can talk to you than they are when they're trying to blow you up.

Neon Genesis Self Insertion by Keith Fraser

  • Recommended by: Fusionmix
  • Advertisement:
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis/Author's Note: This fic is the result of a demented imagination (inspired by other parody writers) wondering what it would be like if the characters from works of fiction lived in their own strange little parallel universe, and were constantly being forced to star in fanfics of their original series. It is also, as should become obvious, a parody of numerous fanfiction clichés.

The More, The Merrier by Andrew Aelfwine

  • Recommended by: Looney Toons
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: What is Rei doing for Shinji and Asuka that leaves them moaning and begging for more? Misato's not sure she wants to find out, but she may not have a choice...

Shinji Theater by gunman

  • Recommended by: Hanz, Willbyr
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Shinji's in a coma that he can't wake up from and Ritsuko has invented something that allows them to see his dreams, which takes form as interpretations of characters in pastiches of classic stories such as King Kong, Godzilla (1998) and even a parody of the Super Robot genre.

How Not to Write Evangelion Fanfics and How Not to Write Evangelion SelfInsertions by sentinel28

  • Recommended by: Dragon Quest Z, Willbyr, ultrafan, enunciability
  • Status: Complete (both)
  • Synopsis: Two stories poking fun at bad Eva fan fiction. The first just gives a general list of mistakes and examples of why they suck. The second is Gendo narrating what not to do with self insertions, since he knows how NERV runs, and what would actually happen to any would-be Mary Sue there.

  • Pairing(s): Kaworu/Asuka, Maya/Ritsuko, The Ree/Everyone(Mainly Shinji)
