- Accidental Innuendo: Asuka should have chosen a better way to phrase her opinion on Shinjis aiming skills
Misato:"The rookie did good, [ ] In fact I think he did better than your first time, Asuka."
Asuka:"My first time was at the age of seven, [ ] Besides, it's all just point and squirt; you'd expect a boy to be capable of that by his age. [ ] Ugh! Please don't ever quote that out of context. Or at all, in fact."
- Alternative Character Interpretation:
- Reis origin is pretty different from canon: In this story, Rei was born two years after Gendo and Naoko stopped dating, and the elder Akagi replaced Yuis DNA with hers.
- Naoko was not a nice person in canon. In this story she is utterly unlikeable.
- Naoko Akagi's soul is NOT inside Unit 00. That is another piece of Lilith/Rei's soul.
- Rei is a piece of Lilith's soul trapped inside Yui Ikari's cloned body. She is not half-Angel. Canonically her only DNA donor known is Yui.
- Nobody knows what kind of pills was Rei taking in the show. It is possible they were emotion-dampeners and suppressors, but it is not canon fact.
- One True Threesome: This is, in fact, the official relationship: Shinji, Asuka and Rei, as well known as the Israfel Special.
- Strangled by the Red String: In the first draft of the story, the characters hook up and are oddly okay with the idea of a three-way relationship awfully fast, especially given their initial reluctance to form lasting relationships with each other. The revised version averts this with a more gradual relationship building.
YMMV / Doing It Right This Time
