Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })After Third Impact, Shinji and Asuka are the only humans left in the whole world, and they must carry on with only each other. And against all odds, they do, overcoming their own psychoses and insecurities and becoming better humans through it.Then one morning, they both wake up to find that mankind has returned, they are in their younger bodies and living in Misato's apartment again, and only they have any memories of what has happened, and what is happening again, the little world they built for themselves destroyed.And now they have to go through their most trying ordeals once more in the EVAs, and try to change history, while simultaneously deflecting suspicions of their changes, and coping with the loss of their old life.The realm of Eva fics has numerous Post-Third Impact and Peggy Sue stories of varying quality. The Second Try (found here, here and here -note: you can find the complete version of chapter 4 in the last link-) has both plotlines, but ya know what? It works. The story has Asuka and Shinji change vastly from how they were in the series, but in small ways, so that Shinji is still Shinji and not Chuck Norris or The Chessmaster, and Asuka is still Asuka and not Belldandy or Ty Lee, and the reasons for these changes are organic and make sense in context for the characters.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })The Author has since begun a sequel webmanga called Aki-chan's Life. It picks up right where the story leaves off. (Or rather, a week or two before the story actually ends.) Another fic of his, The Ikaris, now has his own page.Go to The Child of Love to read a different take on one of the main plot points of this story. Go to Once More with Feeling, RE-TAKE, Higher Learning or Doing It Right This Time if you are interested in reading more Peggy Sue Evangelion fics. Check Advice and Trust, The Child of Love, Evangelion 303, The Ikaris, Nobody Dies, The One I Love Is, or Mobile Fighter Evangelion to see other AU Eva fics. Check A Crown of Stars, HERZ, Neon Genesis Evangelion R, Scar Tissue, Walking in the Shadow of Dreams, Ghosts of Evangelion and Neon Genesis Evangelion: Genocide to see other Eva continuation fics. Go to Children of an Elder God, Gods, Angels, and Kings, Last Child of Krypton, Shinji And Warhammer 40 K, Superwomen of Eva 2: Lone Heir of Krypton and Thousand Shinji if you are interested in crossovers.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })Tropes:

Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Chapters 2 “Survive” and 4 “Love” explore Shinji and Asuka’s slowly developing relationship during nearly two years. Even at the beginning, when they’re merely trying to not kill each other –again-, they still try to help and support each other.

Playing Sick: Asuka plays sick right after returning to the past. Neither Shinji nor she are ready to go to school and face their classmates, so Shinji tells Misato that Asuka isn’t feeling well –which is actually true- and he wants to stay with her. Misato buys it.

Relationship Upgrade: Given the mind-numbing complexities of time-travel, we see Shinji and Asuka like a couple BEFORE we see the upgrade. It happens in chapter 4, "love". After a heated Kaworu-related argument, Asuka finally musters the courage to confess her feelings to Shinji. Naturally he tells her that reciprocates.

True Love's Kiss: Invoked and defied in the epilogue. Shinji and Asuka take their daughter Aki to the hospital to see a comatose Gendo. They explain Aki that maybe her grandfather will never wake up. She gets sad and then exclaims: "I know! It's like in the fairytale! If I give him a kiss, he'll surely wake up!" Before no one can stop her, she gives him a short peck. To her disappointment, it does not work.

comment
I Miss Mom: Shinji and Asuka missed their mothers, never knowing that they were trapped in their Evangelions until it was too late. So their first synch test after time-travelling was very emotional because they could feel their presence and talk to them again. After travelling to the past, Aki asks constantly where her parents have gone.

No Sympathy
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_1cf11f13
comment
After the fight with the 16th Angel, when Misato tries to comfort a distraught Shinji who's blaming himself for being unable to prevent the death of Rei, she gets rudely interrupted by Asuka. At first she mistakes it for a display of No Sympathy she had been used to from the old Asuka, until she hears her berating him for writing Rei off so hastily. Asuka then argues that the new Rei may still be the same as the one they know. She's right.

Green-Eyed Monster: Asuka in The Second Try is pretty jealous. She strongly disliked Kaworu, partially because he lusted after Shinji. She didn't like Rei either because Shinji had strong feelings towards her, but she stopped being jealous of Rei because she realized that the blue-haired girl wasn’t a threat.

comment
Cosy Catastrophe: Zig-Zagged. After TI, Shinji and Asuka take up residence in a subsistence farm that came out of the event mostly intact. The place was (is? will be?) a nice find; largely self supportive with solar panels and batteries, a generator, rainwater collection system, usable garden, room for livestock, furnished living quarters, a fully stocked repair shed, and a working truck with the added bonus of being close to several city ruins ripe for scavenging. However, they had to work really hard to make it work.

Chekhov's Gun: In chapter 2, Shinji and Asuka checked the Tokyo-3 hospital, and found that it seemed to be in perfect shape and the emergency power-generator was still working. Asuka stated that it could be useful in the future. In chapter 4, Asuka gave birth Aki in that hospital. The "Anonymous" letter that Shinji slips into Misato's jacket during chapter 3. Misato finds it during the aftermath of the battle with the 14th angel, and leads to her learning of Shinji and Asuka's secret.

Ironic Echo: "Do not ask questions you don't really want to hear the answer to." "Cry when you feel sad. Laugh when you're happy..." Asuka originally told this to Aki as a lesson about not hiding your feelings. After Shinji is absorbed by Unit 01, she tells herself this since she can't show her feelings. Due to the anachronic nature of the story, we actually hear the echo before the original line.

Babies Make Everything Better: Aki Ikari. Note that this trope is shown in a much more realistic light. The pregnancy initially put a huge strain on Shinji's and Asuka's relationship (Asuka never wanted a child due to her fears of being replaced; Shinji was scared out of his wits due to his own issues with his father), and both had to do some serious soul searching to get to the point where they were emotionally prepared to be parents. Even after the birth, they had to work hard, make mistakes, and deal with situations they were not prepared for.

Defrosting Ice Queen

comment
Defrosting Ice Queen: Shinji to Asuka. After the Angel War and Third Impact Asuka was angry, bitter and not in mood to grant second chances due to Shinji failing her over and again during the conflict. Still, they were living alone in a post-apocalyptic world so they had to work together closely since they could only depend on each other. Shinji learnt to reach her out and she opened up to him eventually, admitting her own part in the mess what was her pre-Impact relationship, and falling in love with Shinji. Aki to Rei. Shinji and Asuka had been trying defrosting Rei for months, but Aki involuntarily managed to coax Rei to display her feelings in a very short while.

Trapped in the Past
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_28c40e81
comment
Trapped in the Past: In chapter 10 Shinji and Asuka found themselves stuck in this situation: someone or something had sent them back to the past and they had no way to return to the future. Why would they want go back to that future post-apocalyptic wasteland where they were the only humans left? Because their daughter had not returned with them. Shinji inmediately wanted to change the past but for a while Asuka was torn between trying to avert the end of the world or let it happen in hopes of finding Aki again.

Disappeared Dad: Shinji' and Asuka's fathers abandoned them. Asuka is willing to make peace with her family, but Shinji called Gendo out several times. Aki suffered a minor case of this when she went sent back to the the past. When she woke up, her parents were gone. She got scared, ran from her house and got lost. Fortunately Rei ran into her and helped her to look for them, but she was terrified until they found them.

Parental Abandonment: Gendo abandoned Shinji when he was four. As far as Asuka –who was also abandoned by her father right after her mother’s funeral-, is concerned, Gendo has no right to talk about his granddaughter after abandoning Shinji. Later on, Shinji stated that Gendo never understood that you can love another people only because they’re related to you.

Break the Haughty: Asuka was arrogant and loud because she tried to overcome her childhood traumas by becoming the best pilot ever. She got beaten and humiliated repeatedly; then she was abandoned and replaced, and shortly after she died in a gruesome way. She managed to live beyond the end of the world, mature, get married to her love and have a beautiful daughter… and then everything was taken from her.

Secret Relationship: Merely the tip of the iceberg.

The Reveal was really something to behold.

Cooldown Hug: Just so many... Usually Shinji is the one who does the embracing. It's somewhat funny that the timid little introvert became the more emotionally stable of the two. The FIRST scene -that spawned the whole fic- consisted of Shinji embracing Asuka to cheer her up. Shinji hugging Asuka in "Love" after their Freak Out!. Shinji hugging Asuka several times in "Repeat" because she was feeling awful. Shinji sitting down with Asuka and embracing her after her Mind Rape (and Asuka stating who knows how much could have changed if he would have done that the first time).

Breaking the Cycle of Bad Parenting: Both Shinji and Asuka are phenomenally better parents to their daughter, Aki, than their own parents ever were for them, managing to raise her in a post-apocalyptic environment while dealing with their own psychoses and still have her come out well adjusted enough to integrate into normal society when they're sent back in time. They both lampshade this repeatedly.

Attention Whore: Subverted.

Ironically, since she is a twenty-years-old woman stuck into the body of her thirteen-years-old self, she realizes how childish was that attitude.

Character Development: Some of the best development for Shinji and Asuka in all of fan fiction takes place during the Post-Third Impact chapters. The real brilliance of the fic comes from watching them switch back and forth from their old selves to their post TI-selves. It really makes it clear to the reader how much they've grown.

Foregone Conclusion
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_3bc88a7f
comment
Foregone Conclusion: A minor one at the end of chapter 6, the author makes it seem like Asuka has died from the strain of childbirth...about 4 years before she and Shinji get thrown back in time. She, of course, turns out to be fine a paragraph later. Played straight in the otherwise heartwarming Chapter 8. Despite the happy times that Shinji and Asuka spent with their daughter, the audience already knows that Aki was erased from existence when the time line was rewound. This chapter (and chapter 6) also hints at another one that combines with Adult Fear. They're still the only people left on the planet, even after several years. Little Aki will grow up without any friends; and, what will happen to her once her parents are gone? Their happiness will not last forever, nor does the future look bright. These are then averted (subverted?) when it turns out that Aki had been sent into the past as well, appearing a few days after Kaworu's death. Tears are shed as she's reunited with her parents, Aki has been given a chance to live a normal life, and they all finally earn their happy ending.

Love Hurts: In chapter 4 "Love" Shinji told Asuka that Instrumentality had taught him that you can not to experience love and happines without taking the risk to feel pain and loneliness too. Both of them choose taking a chance and get together and later have a child. Later they got flung back to the past without Aki where they had to cope with their daughter's disappearance and the fear to lose each other again during the Angel War. When Shinji got swallowed by Leliel and later absorbed into Unit 01 Asuka was freaking out, feeling alone and frightened of losing him again. Later Shinji believed the MP-Evas had killed Asuka again and he could not stand the pain. He very nearly set Third Impact again.

Tranquil Fury: When Gendo says he questioned Asuka about Aki, Shinji gets furious, but he doesn’t it show outwardly because he knows that his father wants to provoke him. So he decides to hold back, wait, and then make his father pay.

Teen Pregnancy
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_4548bae
comment
Teen Pregnancy: Thanks to the Law of Inverse Fertility, Asuka gets pregnant from Shinji a few years after Third Impact, despite being on the pill. Asuka is utterly unprepared to the idea of having a child, so she hides it from Shinji at first and tries to starve herself in a misguided attempt to cause a miscarriage, which causes a major strain in their relationship when Shinji discovers it. After much reluctance, she eventually comes to embrace her motherhood.

Sweet and Sour Grapes: Shinji and Asuka were very bitter about coming back in time due to losing Aki in the process, even though it meant another chance to save the world and their friends. They eventually learned to accept the loss and move forward. After the final battle they're reunited with Aki.

Adult Fear
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_46118dc5
comment
Played straight in the otherwise heartwarming Chapter 8. Despite the happy times that Shinji and Asuka spent with their daughter, the audience already knows that Aki was erased from existence when the time line was rewound. This chapter (and chapter 6) also hints at another one that combines with Adult Fear. They're still the only people left on the planet, even after several years. Little Aki will grow up without any friends; and, what will happen to her once her parents are gone? Their happiness will not last forever, nor does the future look bright.

Saying Too Much: An interesting version. In Chapter 5, after the battle with the 14th angel, Misato finds (a little too late) an "anonymous" note from Shinji, meant to warn her about EVA-03 being possessed by the 13th angel... That he had written out by hand. She, of course, recognizes his handwriting, and a quick peek at his schoolwork confirms that he wrote it. She then remembers his and Asuka's odd behavior, and realizes that Asuka may know something about the letter. When she confronts Asuka, who is extremely distraught at the time (for very good reasons), Asuka breaks down and lets the facade drop.

Chapter 11 has one that's less about what was said, and more who said it. After Third Impact is avoided, we get a rather heartwarming one when Asuka walks into Rei's apartment.

The Atoner: Shinji and Asuka subvert this, surprisingly. At the beginning it looks like they're trying to save the world after going back to the past because they let it die in the original timeline. However, it becomes more apparent as the story goes on that they've largely come to terms with their failings, and they're not motivated by regret and/or guilt.

Not What It Looks Like: Shinji and Asuka don't want people suspecting that they are timetravelers and Happily Married. They try and pretend that they are not together but they are lousy actors, and every time they are caught making out or believe they have been caught or let slip that they are together they swear that "this is not what it looks like" and "it is not what you are thinking". In chapter 5, after the events of the 14th, Misato catches Shinji and Asuka during a moment of passion. Of course, it's exactly what it looks like, but Shinji tries to invoke this trope anyways. He need not have worried, however, as Misato was in the know by that point.

Gratuitous Japanese: It keeps "baka" and "hentai"... almost exclusively for Asuka insulting Shinji. It also keeps a grand total of one honorific when referring to Aki, which is mainly used to emphasize how adorable that particular character is.

Luminescent Blush: Invoked. Shinji used to blush furiously when he was a teenager. When he doesn’t go red after she’s said something highly embarrassing, Misato has her first clue that something is amiss.

Call to Agriculture
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_559b4bb3
comment
Call to Agriculture: In the After the End chapters Shinji and Asuka become farmers. However they hardly had other choice, since they were the only living human beings in the planet and they need to grow their own stuff to survive. After returning to the past, winning the Angel War and averting the Apocalypse they become owners of a garden-market, this time for choice (seen in greater detail in the sequel).

It's just as well she did take the girl home, though, as she was Shinji and Asuka's Kid from the Future.

My Secret Pregnancy: Due to her mess of insecurities, Asuka was rather freaked out when she discovered she was pregnant and had tried to hide it from Shinji (she even went as far as to starve herself in a misguided attempt to induce a miscarriage). He only found out after a rat got into their trash and he stumbled onto a positive pregnancy test Asuka tried to hide. To say he was surprised would have been an understatement.

Jealous Parent: Asuka is the Temporary type. She really didn't want a kid, partially out of fear that it would ruin her relationship with Shinji. It was to the point that she tried to induce a miscarriage via starvation. Fortunately, seeing the first ultrasound awakened her maternal instinct and she was firmly in Good Parent territory by the time that Aki was born (though her jealous phase would come back to haunt her during her rematch with Arael).

Always Save the Girl: Aside that all what Gendo did was because he missed his woman and he was perfectly willing turning the whole humankind into primordial soup only to see her again... and aside that Shinji lost his will to fight when he saw Asuka was dead, although that meant the end of the world... he almost caused the Third Impact again when he thought Asuka had been killed because he could not stand losing her. Deconstructed because later he realized he really would have lost everything if he would have done so.

Played in an interesting manner in "Love": after an argument in which Asuka told Shinji that he would be unable to notice if someone had feelings for him but was unable to express them, the two have a bit of pillow talk where Asuka timidly points out that she was talking about herself, to which Shinji answers that he understood and has the same feelings for her. Yet, in spite of having finally spit it out, they both tiptoe around each other for the next few days, afraid of making the next move, until Asuka eventually gets fed up with it and decides to tackle the issue, leading to the First Kiss of their relationship.

Like an Old Married Couple: -Hilariously- inverted. After being told the secret, Misato mutters Shinji and Asuka used to bicker Like an Old Married Couple before, but now that they ARE one, they act like new-found lovebirds. Shinji and Asuka explain that is -partially- because they are hormone-driven teenagers again... without Belligerent Sexual Tension separating them. The "Hey, look, the newlyweds are fighting!" line from Toji is revisited, and Shinji and Asuka both try hard to act like they did the first time, except Toji notices that the two of them are having a hard time containing their laughter.

Cannot Spit It Out: A humorous subversion. Hikari goads Asuka into confessing her feelings for Shinji, believing she is unable to. The audience, however, knows that Asuka had gotten WAY past that step several years ago (or, depending on the point of view, several years later... Time travel is migraine-inducing). Played in an interesting manner in "Love": after an argument in which Asuka told Shinji that he would be unable to notice if someone had feelings for him but was unable to express them, the two have a bit of pillow talk where Asuka timidly points out that she was talking about herself, to which Shinji answers that he understood and has the same feelings for her.

You Can't Fight Fate: Shinji wonders if this is the case when he's forced to be absorbed into EVA-01 to defeat Zeruel. It's ultimately averted since events start to majorly deviate from canon after that battle.

Panicky Expectant Father
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_7280652a
comment
Panicky Expectant Father: Shinji displays this in "bear", especially in his last pregnancy log where he expresses his worries and doubts about having to take care of the delivery by himself despite learning all he could on the subject, and when he rushes Asuka to the hospital when her contractions begin. During the delivery proper however, he does his best to keep his panic in check and make sure that both mother and baby are all right.

Henpecked Husband
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_72852a93
comment
Henpecked Husband: Shinji is quite passive and Asuka very domineering. Most of the time, Asuka makes plans and handles everything necessary while Shinji follows her lead or makes whatever she commands. At one point after returning to the past, Touji thinks his best friend looks like a henpecked husband, not knowing how right he is. As seen in the sequel, Gendo's reply to anything what his wife said was: "Yes, Yui", "Of course, Yui", "Whatever you say, Yui".

Unwitting Pawn: Subverted. Gendo and SEELE believe that everyone are their pawns… but due to time-travel shenanigans, Shinji and Asuka know exactly what they intend to do and later they tell Misato. From a certain point of view, Shinji and Asuka are reluctantly using everybody in NERV as their pawns to avert the end of the world.

Arc Words: Gendo said this to Shinji: "Do not ask questions you don't really want to hear the answer to". Later on, Shinji threw that line back in his father’s face. "Smile when you're happy, cry when you're sad." Originally a piece of advice given by Asuka to her daughter so she wouldn't make the mistake of suppressing her true feelings like she used to do, Asuka remembers this line when Rei asks her a question about her feelings regarding Shinji's absence following his absorption inside Unit-01, lamenting that she's unable to follow her own advice. Later on, when she reunites with Aki, she appends it with: "And do both when you're happier than you've ever been."

After-Action Healing Drama: In the first chapter, Asuka goes into Shinji's hospital room after the battle against Leliel. She slaps him for worrying her and then gives him a “welcome back” kiss. The whole second chapter consists in Shinji and Asuka beginning to get over their wounds after the Final Battle and the end of the world. When they managed to get Shinji out of Unit-01, Asuka kept watch over Shinji until he came round. After the Final Battle Shinji meets Asuka in the med bay and both get ready to mourn Aki openly.

They're not really sure how it happened, as Asuka had been on the pill when she got pregnant. Asuka claims that the drugs were expired while Shinji suspects that she forgot to be constant in taking it. Of course, it's also possible they fell into that small percentile where it doesn't work, something Shinji lampshades with a weary "we've beaten worse odds before".

Later on, Asuka and he admit that they were part of the trouble in the original timeline just so much like everything else.

Entertainingly Wrong: When Asuka's synch ratio drops, Ritsuko blames it on Asuka getting upset after Zeruel defeated her. A reasonable conclusion, since she doesn't know that Asuka “went through a hell that led to the destruction of the world, recently lost her child, then for some time her lover as well, now probably another close person, and is about to face that aforementioned hell once again.”

Humanoid Abomination: Rei is a cloned human who acts as a vessel for the soul of an Eldritch Abomination. When Shinji and Asuka go back to the past and meet her again, they're unsettled because she always seemed strange, but they never doubted that she was human. Kaworu is another clone storing the soul of another alien Eldritch Abomination. Talking to him or being around him is unsettling because he looks human but he doesn't act or talk like one, and he blatantly tells that life, death, space, time... are meaningless concepts to him.

During the After the End section of the story, Asuka took care of physical chores (such like farming) as Shinji was tasked with the household chores and learning whatever knowledge that they needed (such like medical care). Asuka usually drove the two of them, made plans and handled everything while he calmed her down when she was angry or reassured her when she was depressed. This can also be seen in how they act as parents towards Aki, with Asuka being more stern and Shinji more accommodating. She also loves fighting while he loathes it.

Parental Favoritism: Subverted. Asuka thought that Shinji was Misato's favorite, but during “Love” she admits that maybe she misunderstood the situation.

Willfully Weak: As mentioned above, Shinji and Asuka suppress their sync ratios during tests in order to keep up appearances. Though this causes odd fluctuations in their ratios that do not go unnoticed.

Out-of-Character Moment
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_8ca20b69
comment
Out-of-Character Moment: A rather important plot point revolves around Shinji and Asuka trying to act like their old selves so as to not arouse suspicion. However, they are not the most convincing actors and most of their friends note that they are acting odd (Asuka is bad at hiding her emotions, while Shinji sometimes forgets to stay in character). Rei pretty much spells it out in chapter 3 in a conversation with Toji. The only reason they manage to keep the facade up is because no one would suspect that they were actually a couple, much less the other absurdities of their story (you know, with the whole End of the world and time travel bit)

Karmic Death: Chairman Keel of SEELE. Most evil man in the series. Has been manipulating things behind the scenes probably since he was a young man. Cooked up Second Impact and the plan for his version of Third Impact to essentially escape death, which he's afraid of. Dies of a heart attack off-screen when the MP-EVAs start dropping for real.

Shinji thought about dissuading his father from proceeding with his plans, but he realized right away that he’d be wasting his time, so he called his father out on abandoning him.

The unnoticed fatal Villainous BSoD their chairman suffered while they were arguing doesn't help to clear the air.

Just Toying with Them: When the MP-EVAs show themselves to be tougher to bring down than expected, it dawns to Asuka that this is most likely the reason why she seemed to slaughter them so easily the first time around. Although Shinji expresses doubts about it, this realization only serves to further fuel her Roaring Rampage of Revenge.

I Hate Past Me: Discussed. Asuka thinks her younger self would hate her since during her Character Development she forsook all what she had lived for during her childhood and became a very different person who does not mind showing her emotions, letting other close and loves being a wife and a mother. Shinji disagrees, stating she is being too hard on herself. Straight after he states he thinks his deeply-insecure, self-loathing, shy younger self would be shocked at seeing him... but he does not hate him since he knows why he was so full of insecurities and neurosis.

Character Tics: The nervous tic that Shinji displayed in the series, the clenching/relaxing of his left hand, shows up again just before the battle with the 12th angel. However, in another example of character growth, Shinji actually notices this and makes himself stop (and also mentally lampshades how "old habits are hard to break".)

Hates Being Alone: This was a big part of their personalities in the original series: they hated being hurt by other people but they also hated loneliness.

Now they have finally got over their fear to each other, their fear to loneliness has intensified, and spending any lapse of time not knowing what has happened to each other drives them crazy.

Quit Your Whining: Asuka preemptively snaps Shinji out of his breakdown in chapter 2, telling him to get a grip so they can focus on their survival. After the fight with the 16th Angel, when Misato tries to comfort a distraught Shinji who's blaming himself for being unable to prevent the death of Rei, she gets rudely interrupted by Asuka. At first she mistakes it for a display of No Sympathy she had been used to from the old Asuka, until she hears her berating him for writing Rei off so hastily. Asuka then argues that the new Rei may still be the same as the one they know. She's right.

First Kiss: In Repeat, Shinji and Asuka redo his first kiss' scene, with their positions flipped (this time it is Shinji who does the goading and who pinches Asuka's nose). Right like many other moments of their relationship led to horrible misunderstandings and mutual heartache in the original timeline, they turn it into a heartwarming moment. After they have both confessed their mutual feelings of love in chapter 4, yet shied away from each other for a few days afterwards, Asuka is the first to call out on the ridiculousness of their situation and to drag Shinji into a kiss. She decides it to be their first real kiss, conveniently considering that the peck Shinji gave her while she was sick and the aforementioned kissing disaster do not count as the both of them didn't get to enjoy it back then.

My God, What Have I Done?: Shinji and Asuka are at a lake with Asuka swimming in it. Trying to get Shinji to swim (he admits he can't) she pretends to drown, making him panic and jump in to save her. She takes a look at his face and realizes that she scared him shitless and, for a brief instant, made him think he was going to watch her die and be the last human alive in a post-Third Impact world. Asuka has this reaction when she ends up damaging Aki's doll and scaring her away due to a pediophobia induced panic attack.

Forgot I Couldn't Swim
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_a29b56ae
comment
Forgot I Couldn't Swim: In "Love", Asuka was swimming in a lake while Shinji was fishing. She tried to encourage him to go for a swim as well, but he said he couldn't swim. Suddenly, Asuka screamed that she was drowning, and Shinji got into the water unthinkingly. He paddled rather clumsily, but he managed to pull her out of the pond.

Wouldn't Hurt a Child
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_a2b998a0
comment
Wouldn't Hurt a Child: One of the soldiers Rei encounters specifically chose perimeter patrols because he thought he wouldn't encounter and have to kill one of the teenaged pilots. Aki, being included in the kill order due to simply being near Rei, ups the ante. He repeatedly refuses to shoot her, even after being threatened to be court-martialed by his superior, and when the latter decides to do it himself, he finally opens fire... on him. He unfortunately isn't fast enough to eliminate his remaining squad mate before suffering the same fate.

...And That Little Girl Was Me: In "Raise", Shinji is telling his little daughter a tale about a prince, his princess and his sister that fought huge monsters wearing living armors. However Aki easily guesses that the prince and the princess of the tale are he and Asuka (meaning her parents) and he is telling a tale about their lives.

Absurdly Youthful Mother
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_a7f7e5f4
comment
Absurdly Youthful Parents: It's never clarified just how old Asuka and Shinji were when Aki was born as they hadn't been keeping track of time since the Third Impact (too busy with other matters). By their best guess about a year-and-a-half to two years passed before that, which would have put their age somewhere around 15 to 16. During Asuka's pregnancy, Shinji even worries a bit that her young age might cause complications. Taken even further when they reunite with Aki in the last chapter: while Aki is still 4, Shinji and Asuka were returned into the bodies they had at 14, bringing the (physical) age gap between parents and daughter down to ten years. Shinji lampshades it in the epilogue when he mentions that their unusual family situation is likely to bring some awkward questions and formalities.

Dramatic Irony: As trying to play her old role in "Repeat", Asuka realizes that her claims of being a grownup, her attempts to seem it and her demands to be treated like such not only proved that she was still a child but also made her seeming even more childish. Sadly, she has to keep the masquerade instead of behaving like the adult she is now.

Giant Equals Invincible: Conventional weaponry does nothing to Evas or Angels. When the army assaulted the Geofront Asuka's Humongous Mecha destroyed foot troops, entire tank battallions, VTOLs with insulting easiness whereas Shinji's giant robot protected her power cord with an impregnable barrier that no projectile could pierce through. It went on until the army gave up and deployed Seele's Humongous Mecha. Shortly before Asuka had said that the soldiers were not the real problem (since their enemy were the MP-Evas).

Relationship-Salvaging Disaster: Shinji and Asuka had spent the entire show unable to admit to themselves and each other their feelings. Their relationship got worse and as a result of it they were unable to prevent the demise of everyone in the world but them. The end of the world forced them to carry with only each other, living and working together. In the process they not only matured but also learnt to open up to each other and got together and eventually married.

Oh, Crap!: From the audience when they learn that Gendo and Fuyutsuki learn something they shouldn't have after the Arael fight. Shinji has this expression when several Section-2 agents arrest him, and he realizes his father has figured out his and Asuka's secret. The members of SEELE also display this expression when the first MP-EVA is completely destroyed. The shock is even fatal in Keel Lorenz's case.

Still they chose to fight and save the world.

Devoted to You: After the end of the world, Shinji and Asuka had to work together to survive. Their bonds got stronger and they became extremely devoted to each other.

Metaphorical Marriage
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_b790a174
comment
Metaphorical Marriage: Asuka and Shinji have the full ceremony complete with exchanging rings and vows, but lacked anyone to officiate or witness it due to them being the only two people alive in a post-Third Impact world (though one could say that they technically had the entire human race as their witnesses due to getting married next to the LCL sea). They're planning on having an official wedding by the time of the epilogue.

Are You Sure You Can Drive This Thing?
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_b807833c
comment
Are You Sure You Can Drive This Thing?: Chapter 2 "Survive" narrates how Shinji and Asuka prepared themselves to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. At a point Asuka insists on driving a car. Shinji points out they don't even know how drive and asks if she is really sure she wants to drive that car. Asuka replies it can not be harder than driving a giant robot. Cue hilarious moments: the engine stalled, they drove slowly because Asuka often forgot change the gears or stepped too hard on one of the pedals, and they almost crashed into a broken-down car.

Future Me Scares Me: Discussed. Asuka thinks her younger self would hate her since during her Character Development she forsook all what she had lived for during her childhood and became a very different person who does not mind showing her emotions, letting others close and loves being a wife and a mother. Shinji disagrees, though. But he thinks his younger self would be shocked and surprised at seeing him (since he had became more emotionally stable and less timid).

Berserk Button: Taunt Asuka with her daughter's name or threaten to harm Shinji in front of her. Come on! I dare you! When Gendo tried this, he was a tad bit surprised when she lunged at him and nearly got her hands around his neck. Likewise, Shinji doesn't take too kindly towards anyone who tries/threatens to harm Asuka. While he's pretty good at keeping his cool, some MP-EVAs found out the hard way what happens if this button gets pressed too hard. Stupid bastards never saw it coming.

Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Shinji and Asuka lost their mothers, were abandoned by their fathers, were forced to fight a war against Eldritch Abominations and died in combat before they were fifteen, outlived The End of the World as We Know It and had to survive in the wastes left after the Third Impact. Then they got flung back in time, and schemed to ruin the plans of their superiors.

In reality their relationship got over that phase several years ago, but they pretend otherwise in order to keep their time-travelling status secret.

Anti-Hero: Subverted. Shinji and Asuka were this in the original timeline and in the After the End chapters (since they fought to save the world for selfish reasons or merely struggled to suvive), but in the "repeat" chapters they're straight up heroes: They really don't have any reason to pilot the Evangelions anymore. They lost everything the first time around, they had dealt with their issues and regrets a long time ago, and now they've lost their daughter. They don't have any attachments to the world, nor anything to gain from saving it. But they choose to fight anyways, just to give the world another chance.

Mind Screw: In the author's own words, it wouldn't be Evangelion without it. This includes a bizarre and slightly disturbing rehash of the Gainax Ending of Neon Genesis Evangelion in chapter four, "love." Another minor one occurs in "end" with Shinji wondering how Aki made it back from the future. However as Asuka puts it: "Tell you what, Shinji," a wide grin sprawled over her face while they walked up the stairs. "I don't give a damn. She's back and that's all that matters to me."

However Shinji tells him that he and everybody else will die because his plan and Yui will not return to him. The idea that he will never see his wife again is more than Gendo can bear. His first reaction is trying to convince himself that his son is lying. When it does not work, he tries to kill himself.

Rage Breaking Point: Having been sent back in time, Shinji has been suppressing rage at his asshole father and SEELE for the stuff that went down in End of Evangelion. He also keeps calm even though him and Asuka resolved their issues, got married and had a child after Third Impact but lost that when both went back in time. Shinji then watches Eva-02 (piloted by Asuka, again) blow up. Shinji becomes Death incarnate and mows down an army of Evas before almost causing Third Impact. He snaps out of it, barely, when Asuka finally draws his attention to the fact she bailed out in time.

Taking You with Me: Like in canon, Rei attempts to do this when the 16th Angel is fusing with her... only for the Angel to reveal that he had discovered her intent in Asuka's mind when he briefly tried to unify with her as well and has reacted accordingly by disabling Unit-00's self-destruct mechanism. As a last resort, Rei uses a watered-down version of the forbidden union of Adam and Lilith to merge with her EVA, triggering a mini-Impact which causes as much damage to Tokyo-3 as the original self-destruction. EVA-02's self-destruction against the MP-EVAs. However it is not Asuka who sacrifices herself. It's Kyoko who, after bidding her daughter goodbye, ejects her before blowing herself up.

Insult of Endearment: Asuka still calls Shinji "baka" often enough that the term has almost become a pet name. To the point that when Aki says her first words, it's the second thing she utters after "Mama" (to Shinji's dismay and Asuka's amusement). It's also the only thing she can come up with when asked for her father's name by a police officer. Same thing with "hentai", especially when Asuka herself feels aroused.

Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In chapter 11 Asuka punched Kaworu in the gut. Later on, she gets the drop on him after he takes control of EVA-02 and uses it to tear apart NERV to get to Lilth. Unbeknownst to him, she hid herself inside Unit-02, and overrides his control right as Shinji makes his appearance in EVA-01. Kaworu is so surprised at this that he actually drops his usual smile for a look of pure shock.

Lighter and Softer: Although the story has dark and tear-jerking moments, it's happier than canon. Shinji and Asuka learn to deal with their psychological issues, become parents, and the world is saved.

Deadly Upgrade
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_cf41a26
comment
Like in canon, Rei attempts to do this when the 16th Angel is fusing with her... only for the Angel to reveal that he had discovered her intent in Asuka's mind when he briefly tried to unify with her as well and has reacted accordingly by disabling Unit-00's self-destruct mechanism. As a last resort, Rei uses a watered-down version of the forbidden union of Adam and Lilith to merge with her EVA, triggering a mini-Impact which causes as much damage to Tokyo-3 as the original self-destruction.

Cassandra Truth: When Gendo confronts Shinji about his conversation with Asuka during the attack by the 15th Angel, Shinji tells him exactly what's going on. Gendo promptly dismisses his son's warnings as the ravings of a mad child because he refuses to believe that he'll never see his wife again.

Armor-Piercing Slap
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_d043ab87
comment
Armor-Piercing Slap: Being Happily Married to Asuka doesn't prevent Shinji from finding himself on the receiving end of several of those: Once after accusing Asuka of lying about her love for him to break her out of the hunger strike she started after discovering her pregnancy. Given how hurtful those words were for the both of them, he felt he totally deserved it. Asuka gives him "the first one in years that had been anything but playful" when he blocks her from entering Aki's room while she's sick with measles to prevent her from getting contaminated. For once however, he doesn't back off and even tells her he's ready to take more. In the post-time travel chapters, Shinji gets slapped by Asuka twice as he's waking up in the hospital for having her worried. The first time after the fight with the 12th, the second after his month-long stay in Unit-01. Each time is immediately followed by a kiss. Another well-deserved (and expected) one Shinji gets occurs after he gets back to Asuka after leaving her worrying for several hours before the JSSDF attack, breaking curfew to go back to their apartment to pick up the engagement ring he intended to give her before their last battle.

Everybody Lives: At the end of the story, not only SEELE's Assimilation Plot has been thwarted and every death in the main cast averted (even Gendo's karmic retribution only puts him in a vegetative state), but Shinji and Asuka's daughter who was assumed to be Ret Gone is brought back to them, making their family complete again. The only onscreen deaths are Rei (who, par for the course, comes back), Kaworu (after a heartwarming speech to convince a reluctant Shinji of its necessity), and Kyoko (by way of Heroic Sacrifice).

Give Him a Normal Life: Shinji and Asuka often express this desire about their daughter Aki. In fact it is hinted that their wish for Aki having friends and a normal life was the cause of their trip back to the past. And in the epilogue and the sequel Aki-chan's Life they often say they want that their daughter have a normal life (they don't even want her finding out that they are time-travelers).

Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them: Shinji and Asuka. This was apparent in the series to everybody except them, but in the fanfic they became aware of the fact during the After the End chapters (and Asuka is particularly hit hard by it). When one of them is missing, the another gets worried and upset. When they are neither talking to each other nor sleeping together because of a fight, they miss each other. And both are terrified of the possibility of breaking up and going separate ways after a dispute.

Surprise Pregnancy: Due to her mess of insecurities, Asuka flipped out when she discovered she was pregnant and had tried to hide it from Shinji (She even went as far as to starve herself in a misguided attempt to induce a miscarriage). He only found out after a rat got into their trash and he stumbled onto a positive pregnancy test Asuka tried to hide. To say he was surprised would have been an understatement. Incidentally, Asuka avoids the usual markings of trope, as what tipped her off to her condition was missing one of her periods.

Determinator: Shinji became one after Third Impact. Since running, hiding and complaning had gotten him nowhere, he decided to make an effort to be more determined and resolute.

Suspiciously Specific Denial: In chapter one: The really funny part about this is that Asuka wasn't trying to hide her worry for Shinji; she was trying to cover for an Out-of-Character Moment betraying what she was a time-traveler. And for once, her reputation as a Tsundere helps her out and no one notices the slip.

Blue and Orange Morality: Kaworu. He finds humans thinking and emotions -such like fear- alien and disconcerting, and people also finds him weird and even unsettling. Asuka defined the mere fact of meeting and talking to him like "unsettling". Maya found her utter unguardedness disturbing and somewhat eerie. Toji wondered if he was homosexual, but Kaworu had no idea of what he meant when when Toji asked politely. He also told to Shinji life and death are as unimportant to him as are time and space.

The Kid with the Remote Control: One of the consequences of being stuck in the past is Shinji and Asuka know now they were selected to be Evangelion pilots -even if they were children- because their mothers’ souls are locked inside their robots. That knowledge should allow them a better synch with their machines, but they can not display it because they do not want people finding out about the time-travelling bit.

Clingy Jealous Girl
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_eb5b71fe
comment
Clingy Jealous Girl: Asuka was one in the original series (part of her animosity towards Rei was due to her misconception that Shinji liked Rei instead of her). Her jealousy had mellowed due to her feeling more confident about herself and their relationship; however, she makes no attempt to hide her hostility towards Kaworu and makes it clear that she wants him nowhere near her husband. There may have been a little jealousy there, but she was more worried that Shinji would get hurt again. In chapter 10, it's pointed out that the only reason she hasn't felt jealousy in years is because she had no one but her daughter to "compete" with for Shinji's affection.

Delivery Guy: Being the last man on Earth, Shinji had to fill this part when Asuka gave birth to their daughter. Even if Shinji already had some medical knowledge and had a few months to focus his studies on obstetrics, he was understandably apprehensive over having to handle alone the task of safely bringing to the world his wife's child at such a young age (both his and Asuka's). Once again, Asuka's moral support before and during the labor (despite being in pain from childbirth herself) went a long way to alleviate his worries.

Supernaturally Young Parent: Aki, the daughter of Asuka and Shinji, conceived after the events of the third impact was born when her parents were about 16 or so. Pretty young to begin with. Four years pass, then everyone was swept back in time and her parents returned to the age they were in the anime (14) while she remained unchanged (she's a very precocious 4). They still remain loving, mature parents, but the awkwardness of the whole situation is... well you get the idea.

Late to the Punchline: The narration of chapter 11 mentions that it took Hikari a while to realize what Asuka meant by "You're watching our pet, we'll watch yours!" (PenPen and Toji respectively). To be fair, she was in something of a daze after having given Toji a goodbye kiss in full view of all her friends.

Innocent Innuendo: Happens several times in the narration. In chapter 3, Rei participates for the first time to a physical activity with Shinji and Asuka that leaves the three of them sweating (they're on a hiking trip). In chapter 4, we get to see Shinji, some time after starting his relationship with Asuka, nervously facing her, wondering why he agreed to do it with her so early (Asuka is making him pass a test to check his progress in his medicine studies). In chapter 6, one scene opens on Asuka moaning in delight and begging Shinji not to stop, even for changing positions (Shinji is massaging her feet which are sore from her pregnancy).

In Mysterious Ways: When Shinji complains that he and Asuka have failed to change the past, Kaworu points out that even the small changes they've made have improved the outcome, resulting in Toji playing a critical role in fighting back the MP-EVAs. It also seems likely Kaworu guided Rei and Aki into meeting, which was the catalyst for Rei refusing her role in Third Impact.

Law of Inverse Fertility
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_f4f3252e
comment
Law of Inverse Fertility: Played both straight and averted. Asuka didn't want to have a baby, even to the point where she was starving herself in a misguided attempt to induce a miscarriage (which, Shinji later noted, put her in more danger than the baby). However, once she sees the first ultrasound that changes. The aversion comes with Aki being born alive and healthy. Asuka had also tried to keep her pregnancy a secret from Shinji. He only found out by chance when he was picking up their trash after a rat had ripped open a bag and discovered the positive test. Needless to say, he was not happy. They're not really sure how it happened, as Asuka had been on the pill when she got pregnant. Asuka claims that the drugs were expired while Shinji suspects that she forgot to be constant in taking it. Of course, it's also possible they fell into that small percentile where it doesn't work, something Shinji lampshades with a weary "we've beaten worse odds before".

Dude, She's Like, in a Coma!: After the defeat of the Seventeeth Angel, Shinji visits a sleeping Asuka in the hospital, and unlike what he did in the original timeline, he kisses her. Asuka wakes up during the kiss and jokingly tells maybe he should have tried that the last time instead. Also happens in chapter 6, after Asuka gave birth to Aki and passed out from the stress of the delivery (she and the audience were led to believe — wrongly — that she was dying). Shinji kisses her just before she wakes up, surprised to be still alive, and he even cracks a joke about it.

comment
Asuka is the wife in more ways than one: She is wise, dependable and supportive. She is the one makes plans and devises strategies and Shinji usually depends on her for everything.

Beware the Nice Ones
 The Second Try / Fan Fic / int_fccd06b6
comment
Beware the Nice Ones: Once again, Shinji. More so than in the original timeline as he's no longer plagued by crippling insecurities. Exemplified in his rematch with the 13th angel. He keeps calm during the fight, retains control of his EVA when Gendo tries to activate the Dummy Plug, and after Rei safely extracts the Entry plug from Unit 03, pulls out his prog knife and practically butchers the thing before killing it with repeated stabs to the core.

comment
Will They or Won't They?: Subverted due to time-travel craziness. Shinji and Asuka had this in chapter 4. However, they were together in chapter 1.

comment
Technical Virgin: A literal example. In "The Final" Asuka points out that it is technically her first time due to Mental Time Travel. In an earlier chapter she jokingly suggested Shinji he started thinking of ways to make up for their former first time.

Innocently Insensitive: Misato makes a comment in "Repeat" about how Shinji and Asuka should be prepared when they stay home alone because it would be really inconvenient if Asuka got pregnant.
