The Catalyst

What a brave, brave girl…

I’m in a darkened room, in front of me is a hospital bed lit only by one spotlight. The rest of the room is silent except for the rhythmic beeping of the machines hooked up to the beds occupant. I feel like I’ve been in this room before, as I walk towards the bed I see Shinji lying there. His chest moving up and down slowly but his eyes closed.

This town is sad...

Since I returned time has lost its meaning for me. I don’t have my watch, my mobile phone died ages ago so all I have to go on is guessing. I can guess that I had been back for about two or three days before Asuka returned to me. I can guess that the small village was about half an hour away but as we take another step Asuka is turning to me with an angry look on her face.

“Are you sure it was only half an hour away? It feels like we’ve been walking for longer.”

Twisted Coil

It feels strange the next time I wake up. I almost feel like I’m someplace else. Like I’m back home in the apartment. There is a certain warmth to it that I only felt when I was there. It takes a few moments for me to realize I’m not back there. That I’m still on the beach covered lying on a makeshift bed built on scavenged blankets. I have a soft bag for a pillow and the campfire is starting to go out.

The first 48 hours

My stomach is still churning by the time I make it back to my position on the beach. I’m not able to keep anything down at the moment it seems. Even water seems to have difficulty staying in my system. It’s been this way for the past two days now. I’ll try to eat or drink something from the supplies I’ve scavenged but an hour or two later I’ll be consumed by the thoughts, by the loneliness and the guilt and I’ll have to run off to throw up whatever is in my system.

Asuka thought of herself as many things. Elite pilot, protector, smart and broken. Now she wakes up in a new landscape caused by Third Impact and has to face that she was the catalyst for the end of the world. Vowing to protect Shinji, both pilots must confront their pasts and themselves as they try to survive.

So I’ve been working on trying to create a Drupal Feature Set that takes everything I've tried to do for Fanbards and put it into something that others could use for their own story archives and communities. I'm also hoping it will help me fix things with out doing what this post will be describing every time.

My goal is to improve things on the page and hopefully increase some community involvement. The big things I’ll describe here, and open up the comments for discussion.

Little Things

The Worth of a Word

"I love this dress!"

The exclamation drew the attention of Rei and Shinji, taking the boardwalk to NERV. They turned to see a gaggle of girls tittering about insignificant things.

"I know! Don't you just love that satin feel? It's just great!"

"It reminds me of the dress Megumi Hashibara wore on her new album. Ohmigod! Didn't you love her new single?"

Rei and Shinji passed the crowd. As the girls and their gossip faded into the distance, the two exchanged a look.

Little Things

Lens of Veritas

Toji thought he saw Shinji looking at Rei during lecture.

Asuka thought she saw Rei looking at Shinji when he turned his head.

Hikari thought she saw Rei blush and smile faintly when Shinji's eyes inevitably met hers.

Only Kensuke knew.

If there's anything I've learned since I've been declared a full-fledged otaku, he chuckled silently as he pocketed the endearing tape for posterity, it's that the camera's lens doesn't lie.


Little Things


Under the school canopy, Rei watched raindrops fall as she pondered her dilemma.

I must proceed to NERV for synchronization testing, but the walk will be unpleasant. If I detoured to obtain an umbrella, it will be bearable but I will be late.

At the fwap of an opening umbrella, Rei turned to see Shinji step out and look at her. "Heading to NERV, Ayanami?"


Shinji extended the umbrella to also cover her head. "I'll walk you there. I won't let you catch cold."

The girl hesitated, then nodded, and off they went.

The newest trailer for Rogue One Dropped last night after the Olympics. I've had to be at work at 5am each morning this week so I'm only now getting to post the trailer for your enjoyment.

This gives us more information on the story, and the characters. I think it looks like a great run here and I'm looking forward to more.

I saw this a while ago but I wanted to share it here anyways. Someone went and recut the Last Starfighter's Trailer into something more like the way we do things these days.

Frankly I want the track he used for the music.

April 2015

Welcome to the world of Minchiate. Within it, life proceeds normally. Well, as normally as life can be led by a bunch of mages. In this world, a group of young apprentices discover that what they believed to be the truth may be nothing more than a game. And the price of victory may be more than they’re willing to pay…
