Summary: 

A new instructor has started at Tokyo-3 Junior High. Here begins the Lesson...

    Someone's crying.

    I'm not sure why, but I think I'm glad it's not Asuka. Or Misato. I know Rei won't cry. Not over me. Not unless she knew the whole truth. But, to know that, I suppose you'd have to be someone else. Rei, for all her perfection, probably doesn't consider the truth before her. It's too far-fetched.

    Second Lesson: Falling Evangelions

    Principal Yamamoto had been good with his word, and the classroom had been cleared out of the old sensei's belongings and replaced with a new desk. Kaoru had gotten to school early and was reading over the lesson plan.

  3. Third Lesson: Enjoy the Weekend!

  4. Forth Lesson: Shaken, not stirred.

    Shinji and Pen-Pen relaxed as the warm meal in their bellies coupled with the pleasant mind-numbing effects of the TV took over. "Pen-Pen. Change the channel." Shinji complained. He looked extremely relaxed. Almost as if he was one with the couch.

    Pen-Pen looked over at his roommate and sighed with equal laziness and couch-camouflage. "Wuaaagh."

    "Oh, yeah." Shinji remembered he had the remote control in his hand, and changed the channel to something more interesting.

    Fifth Lesson: In wine, there is truth.

    "So, what do you do?" Kaoru asked casually, working on his second rye.

    "Top secret." Misato winked. Her smile was looking very inviting, and she knew it.

    She was already almost leaning into him on the bar stools, so Kaoru decided that it was a good thing, since she might fall off if she wasn't. Plus, it wasn't exactly an unpleasant feeling.

    Sixth Lesson: Dinner Plans.

    7:00 P.M.

    One of Rei's guilty little pleasures was being EXACTLY on time.

    Strange to think of that as something fun to do, but she loved to see people's reactions when their doorbell rang at EXACTLY when it should have.

    "BING BONG!"

    Miyazaki Kaoru cringed at the loud sound, still nursing the remnants of his hangover from last night. "Coooommmingg!" he called out, rushing to the door.

    Seventh Lesson: Classroom Behavior

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Eighth Lesson: Separation Anxiety

    "You two in position?" Shinji whispered, looking past the corner of the nearest building to see the edge of the giant, ball-shaped Angel. For the first time, he could feel his heart pumping in excitement instead of terror. While his mind was usually wracked with self-doubt and questioning, he knew that he had the highest sync-ratio, that Tokyo 3 was at full operational capacity to back him up, and he had the chance to prove his courage to Asuka.

  9. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Ninth Lesson: Cram School

    Asuka listened in horror as Misato and Ritsuko organized the UN troops around the Angel, hoping to put some kind of pressure on it to release Shinji. Her only companion was Rei, who watched the whole situation with her usual, unnerving cool stare.

    Tenth Lesson: The end of the day

    Eleventh Lesson: Fly on the Wall

    "Oh shit oh shit oh shit..." Kaoru literally ran down the halls with his books in hand. Two dozen or more papers for the day's class were clutched perilously in his hands, but never fell despite his frantic movement.

    One could surmise he was late, as the clock that hung over his classroom door read nine-twenty am. "Argh..." he sighed, opening the door.

  12. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twelfth Lesson: Stress Fractures

    Cold, blue light filtered in from the windows outside. White and grey steel were smooth and sterile around the only splash of colour in the entire ward. One single flare of red.

    Asuka watched through the glass...the light making her reflection hazy. Almost dream-like. Shinji lay on the other side in a hospital bed.

  13. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Thirteenth Lesson: Setting the Stage

    "Back to our original conversation." Kaoru said loudly, interrupting the number of conversations still going since the second bell ending lunch had sounded. "Who can bring us back up to speed on the nature of Sound?"

    The class was silent for a moment as their Sensei tapped his chalk on the board, waiting for a reply.

  14. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Fourteenth Lesson: Sound

    Pen-Pen's scratching woke Shinji as always. As always, around the same time, just before school. Though there was no school on Sundays, Shinji always expected the little penguin's noises, and had even begun to count on them to wake up. After all, SOMEONE had to feed him.

    Shinji walked out into the kitchen, scratching his head lazily as he went about fixing Pen-Pen's breakfast.

    "Uh...Shinji...you might wanna..."

    Fifteenth Lesson: New Disguise

    "Back when I was a child..." Kaoru said as he handed Shinji a cup "...I didn't really have anything else except my music."

    They stood alone in the cafeteria, helping themselves to some of the vending machine drinks and snacks. Luckily, they were always open, even on Sunday. Both of them agreed that talking over food would be a nice change. Asuka and Rei would probably just go home.

  16. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Sixteenth Lesson: "Timing is everything"

    Misato yawned.

    She seemed to be doing that a lot lately. Of course, she also wasn't getting much sleep. Good Mother-Nature seemed to connect the two quite well, and therefore, one could be explained by the other.

    "Are you okay, Major?" the voice of Ritsuko floated over to her across the lounge.

  17. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Seventeenth Lesson: Digging Graves

    Kaji swallowed hard in the dry air, shivering with the effort of holding on as the line retracted back into his grappling pack. He clung onto the side of a double-helix of illuminated metal that stretched up and down for what seemed to be infinity. What little light there was came from the shaft of 'DNA' he hung on to, and a similar glowing tunnel that spiralled around the edges of the cavern he was descending down.

  18. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Eighteenth Lesson: Hitting a NERV

    "Tell me why we have to do this again?" Asuka yawned as they walked down the isles of food.

    "Because if we don't, Misato will." Shinji said wisely.

    Asuka nodded. "Oh yeah. I remember last time she went grocery shopping." a cringe appeared on her face. "I...I didn't think I'd ever have anything that looked like THAT put on a plate in front of me."

  19. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Nineteenth Lesson: "All the World's a Stage"

    Miyazaki Kaoru stood at the window, looking out over the buildings of Tokyo 3. The sun was just beginning to rise, casting the incredible oranges and yellows across the white cityscape that were the norm for the season. Even in this endless summer, one could see the differences. Cicadas and color were the only change, yet it was still change.

  20. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twentieth Lesson: "Interviews"

    Something that Shinji never quite noticed during their practice sessions came to his mind as Asuka stood and bowed to the audience, readying her violin against her neck.

    When the hell did she have time to learn Parita III fur Violino Solo?

  21. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twenty-First Lesson: "Aftermath"

    Ritsuko watched with faked interest as the view screen showed the events at hand. The footage was already a week old, yet only she and Commander Ikari had seen it sooner than this 'emergency report' issued by the MAGI.

  22. Neon Genesis Evangelion
    Higher Learning

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twenty-Second Lesson: "Compassion and Pressure"

    Misato grinned as she snuck up behind Ritsuko, holding one of her larger stuffed cats in her hand.

    Ritsuko did nothing, completely focused on her computer screen.

    Just barely resisting the urge to say 'heh heh heh' out loud, she raised the little black kitty to shoulder-level, about to make it 'pounce' onto her friend's shoulder.

  23. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twenty-Third Lesson: "Learning Nothing"

    Asuka stood proudly. One hand was on her waist, while the other held a clipboard full of German text. This was an important moment, and if everything was to go well, she would have to read the list perfectly.

    "Are you ready, my kawaii baka-Shinji?" she smiled down at him from her vantage point on the couch.

  24. Neon Genesis Evangelion
    Higher Learning

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twenty-Forth Lesson: "Barriers of the Soul"

    "So you two are going out?" Kaji said, sucking back another burp as they watched the slow sunset.

    "Yup." Shinji said, throwing his empty beer can out over the pavement. He was rewarded with a hollow 'thunk!' sound a moment later. "She's nice to me now...but..."

    "You still don't understand her?" Kaji nodded.

  25. Neon Genesis Evangelion
    Higher Learning

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twenty-Fifth Lesson: "Activation"

    It was one of those things that made Misato believe firmly in God. And that He was out to get her.

    The ten or so seconds (depending on how you counted) from 11:59:50 to Midnight that night were filled with the sound of someone walking into the bar in a hurry. She sighed, nursing her drink between her thumb and index finger, and watched Kaoru run up and sit down next to her.

  26. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twenty-Sixth Lesson: Normal Blood

    Day broke as it had every other day. The peaceful night crickets eventually fading to the noisy day cicadas. Only a few in the city even noticed them anymore. What some would consider an annoying sound was music to the ears of Tokyo-3.

    They never chirped during the Angel attacks it seemed.

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Twenty-Seventh Lesson: "Catching Up"

    "Well well, look who decided to join us." Asuka chided as Shinji rushed to catch the elevator before the door closed.

    Twenty-Eighth Lesson: "Freedom"

    Few things in life were this cute.

    Rainbows were beautiful. Newborn babies were adorable...and some puppies and fuzzy pets were often considered cute. However, Mari Suzuhara, just a few scant weeks away from her tenth birthday, and dressed in what had to be the most adorable, yellow-and-pink flowery hospital gown, topped them all.

    The fact that she had Toji by the neck was even cuter...in a strange, Asuka-esque kind of way.

    Twenty-Ninth Lesson: "Run Like Hell"

    He didn't care.

    That was the only conclusion Shinji Ikari could draw against his escape. Last time he did this, even NERV's so-called 'finest' security officers took over two days to bring him back. Even then, they would never have been able to keep up with him until he stopped to visit Kensuke that one misty early morning.

    Thirtieth Lesson: "Moved"

    "There's no time." Misato said urgently, startling the bridge crew, who had thought her to be still in transit. "As soon as Asuka is in Unit 02, launch it to the Geofront ground level."

    "Hai!" Maya replied, checking the systems.

    "Status on Unit-00 and 03." Misato demanded.

    Thirty-First Lesson: Tadaima

    It was a wonderful feeling.

    He decide it was so. It had to be so, since he felt to desires. No hate, no pain and no wish to be elsewhere.

    At first, he wondered if the light around him was a pool of water. If he had slipped in the bath and hit his head. Perhaps, he was in NERV Headquarters. After a long day, he had decided to go to the Men's Lockers.

    Thirty-Second Lesson: Depth

    [three weeks ago]

    In the dark, the memories always come. There were no overriding images to stop them from flooding her mind's eye. The hallway was empty as Asuka walked through it. All the lights were off, leaving only the echoing illumination from her destination and the emergency lighting.

  33. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Thirty-Third Lesson: Perfect Attendance

    Shinji panicked slightly when he tried to sit up...and couldn't. His world came rushing into his eyes and mind. Back at home...looking up at the roof...but he felt too warm. Heavy.

    It wasn't until a soft, sleepy moan escaped from his chest that he realized Asuka was sleeping half on top of him.

    "A..." he swallowed hard. "Asuka..."

  34. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Thirty-Forth Lesson: "This Little Piggy Went To Market"

    "This doesn't make sense." Misato said, looking at the documents in front of her.

    Makoto looked past her, out across the Geofront's lake. He would have liked to give Misato the results of his inquiries in a more private place, but in Tokyo-3 there was no 'private' place. Every alley and room had an equal chance of being bugged or watched by NERV, SEELE, or perhaps the JSDF and other world governments.

    Strike Fiss, 2000

    Thirty-Fifth Lesson: "Missing You"

    Something in the air seemed different as Professor Fuyutsuki read his morning paper on the Monorail. Maybe it was the occasional cough or rustle of a newspaper down the cart that caught his attention. After all, normally the train was dead this early in the morning. He had only seen other NERV employees one time during his several months of using the train since it had been built.

    Thirty-Sixth Lesson: "I spy"

    It really was a shame that these favours had to be called on so early in the game. While he did not have the omnipresent, reaching resources that Commander Ikari had, Kaji prided himself on his tight network of contacts, friends, and people who owed him favours.

  37. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Thirty-Seventh Lesson: "Dates"

    Asuka sat up in bed, completely silent. She could hear the speaker begin to charge with the tiny bit of electricity it would need to sound the alarm clock...and reached over Shinji to pull the plug before it did.

    Not yet...she though. She had to think for a moment. Morning would wait patiently.

    Thirty-Eighth Lesson: "Conferences"

    Once again, it started with Beethoven.

    Kaoru blinked as he heard the humming, turning to Rei, who was seated to his left in the passenger seat of the rent-a-car. "Rei?"

    She blinked, looking up at him. "Hai?"

    "You were humming." The teacher blinked.

    "Hai." She smiled softly.

    Thirty-Ninth Lesson: "Hanging On"

    "LET ME OUT!"

    The nurse fell backwards, completely shocked at the sudden outburst. A tray of needles, medicine, and water fell from her hands with a cry, and clattered to the floor.

    The redhead on the sterile, hospital sheets crawled backwards away from the nurse, still breathing heavily. The IV needle that had been intended to go into her arm dangled uselessly on her bed. "No! I don't want to stay here! I don't want to stay here!"

    Fortieth Lesson: "The First Other"

    There is something sad in assuming that the Mother is the 'first other'.

    The first person you meet. The first you know. The first you talk to and trust. Even if it is only in limited baby-speak, you try to communicate with that woman. You try, because you know her. You assume she must care for you, or you wouldn't be here.

    Once in a while, however, one does not connect the ways they should.

    Forty-First Lesson: "Ballad"

    Misato had slept in far into the evening. Again. And she still felt like the underside of a rock. Her daily routine had always been to make it to the fridge for her morning beer while somehow managing to be presentable (i.e., not naked, half-naked, or smelling like something horrible).

  42. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Forty-Second Lesson: "Chalk Outline"

    The heat of the day was unnatural. Sounds of helicopters and machines buzzed louder than the cicadas of the old summertime. Orange suits animated through the dense trees to where a large, burnt scar cut across their path.

    Mist unlike anything they had ever seen blanketed the area with heat that could have boiled you alive if you were bare skinned. Luckily, the NERV emerg teams were not so foolish.

  43. Neon Genesis Evangelion

    Strike Fiss, 2001

    Forty-Third Lesson: "School's Out"

    Kaji gazed at Misato with an odd expression. It was a mix of both awe and concern. Concern for the events happening of late, and the stress that she must be feeling. However, he was also quite entranced with the woman across from him.

    Needing to talk, they agreed on a meeting place out side of town. There wasn't much left of Tokyo-3 anyway, so it seemed to be the best idea.

    Forty-Forth Lesson: "Alone"

    Asuka watched herself in the car, almost as if she was having an out of body experience. Like she was watching an all-too real dream, waiting for herself to wake up and be happy, jump around, and thank her darling Baka Shinji for making her the extra lunch she usually wined about and never thanked him when he did, but would promise to herself to thank him for remembering today.

    Forty-Fifth Lesson: "Where Angels fear to Tread"

    "Tell me again why I have to follow your bitch-ass around the wilderness?" Kaji yelled out as he slipped down the hill once again.

    He was getting rather good at it, Kaoru smirked. Even had enough time to yell out that phrase before he hit the bottom. "Because I know where I'm going!" he called back.
