Follow TV Tropes
By far, this is among the most original ideas I've come across, and it's refreshing to see a take with Asuka as the leading role. Furthermore, the interaction between Asuka and Shinji is adorable, and the developing relationship/Maybe-Sorta-Friendship between her and Rei is rich with Crowning Funny Moments. The author is also not afraid of experimenting with different outcomes to canon events with the Angels. All too common a temptation with AU fiction is to have the events happen exactly as in canon, just with a few names swapped. Here, the first battle with Ramiel/The Fifth Angel is quite disturbing, with far reaching outcomes, and if Shinji had issue with Misato's drinking, he should be glad he never saw her new smoking habit.
