It's certainly an interesting description of everyone's favorite redhead.  Once we actually get someone to play her, I'll set up a preliminary sort of OOC thread where we can talk through how we'd want our characters to develop, what we think of everyone's relationship with everyone else, and ultimately where we want the story to go.

If that seems a bit obsessive, I want to make it clear that I really want this game to be smooth and satisfying for everyone involved in addition to having a decent story blended with complex relationships.

To put it another way, I want this story to be more of a love spirograph than a love polygon

"Love Spirograph." That sounds like the title of an album my high school stoner friend Steve would have made...

I'm sure 'Love Spirograph' was an album... or a 70s prog-rock-intelligensia-pompous band. You know the ones.

As fascinating as that line of discussion is, we do have larger concerns, namely, finding ourselves an Asuka.

Also, to Major Major and Aaleril: would you two be interested in playing a Kensuke and Toji team?

A bit of an update: If we don't get an Asuka we'll still be playing the game as though Asuka died, exploring how the pilots (and the other children) are reacting to her death.  If we do wind up playing this game, Toji, Kensuke and Hikari will become more important.

I'd be willing to play Kensuke.  He's really a pretty underrated character, and one of the saner people in the Evangelion universe.  (plus, he's the first boy Shinji slept with.   ;D )  In many ways, Kensuke can be played a lot like Kaurou except with a voyeur thing and a lot less of the mysterious past baggage.


I'd likely only be interested in light romantic yaoi though, rather than inexplicable hardcore anal sex.  (Even with his military fetish, Kensuke doesn't seem like he'd be into that... at least not at first.)

Hi GT! Long time no see. It never struck me that Kensuke might be gay. All the blustering and filming and lusting he does, especially around Misato... and all that candid photography dealing he does in school. I'm pretty sure he's straight. He'd definitely make an interesting lover though, and I'd be curious to see how he'd react to an advance from Kaoru :P

I'm sure your interpretation of him won't ever be boring!

Oddly enough, it never occured to me that Kensuke might be heterosexual.  I figure he's just overcompensating for something.  (More precisely, I get the impression that he's confused, and trying really really hard to assert the heterosexuality he thinks he should have, and the feelings of isolation are what drive his hobby of hiking through the woods engaging in various types of military fantasy.)  When you look at how Kensuke and Toji interact, you could almost dredge up a bit of sexual tension out of there.  You know, like any two men who voluntarily stay in the same room for 10 minutes at a stretch without getting all sweaty and putting their hands on each other.

Now, were we doing high school AU or a version of Evangelion with the giant robots and cosmic horrors?  (I was a little fuzzy on that point.)

True. You have a point there. Maybe he is overcompensating.

Its a bit unclear what version of story we're playing. I'd like to go for Angelic Days as the characters are that much more fun. Rei is the polar opposite of TV series Rei and Kaoru is just another school kid but still with some weirdness... Wall would like to do some Angel battles though so we'll most likely do a mix of AD and the original show but making the whole story pilot- (or at least school kid- ) centric rather than having adults involved.

Got it.   :-) 

I'd prefer angelic days myself, although Kensuke could be fit into an angel battles sort of storyline.  (He is, after all, one of the pilot candidates identified by the marduke report)  Though he'd almost certainly be a wretched EVA pilot, since he'd be prone to treat his EVA like it was a giant robot or military weapon, which is a sure recipe for failure in Evangelion. 

He'd likely end up being completely useless against the angels, but his own defeatist attitude would keep him from succumbing to a sense of helplessness for a while.  After succumbing to a sense of helplessness, he might just learn to properly pilot an EVA, but he'd almost certainly crack completely and go off into the woods to snipe NERV personell.

Yeah, we're doing a bit of a combo game.  The focus is definitely a high school-centric alternate universe, but NERV and Angels still exist.  How much of the combat we have is still up in the air I think, but there'll definitely be some, and I wanna try and have this not be quite as dark or mindfucky as Eva proper.

So cool, a Kensuke.

And danke for the offer, Herr Major, but general consensus seems to be that we'd like a girl to play Asuka.  Again, if you still want in, Toji is up for grabs, even more so now that we have a Kensuke.

Fantastic.  So we've got everyone but Asuka.  And so far only one girl...

Hmm...  Right now the best we can hope for looks to be about a four on the Kinsey Scale.

Well, I hesitate to ask, but Haibane, would you be at all interested in pulling double duty?  If not that is, obviously, more than okay, just thought I'd ask.  And if we don't get an Asuka within a few days, we'll just start a game without her, but leave the character available but out of the way.

I had thought of that actually but one of my personal fantasies is doing a ReixAsuka scene which would be a bit tricky if I played them both.

A Hikari would be nice too so she can play off against Toji and Kensuke. I could play her since I'd consider her a more minor character but playing two major characters would be awkward.

At this late stage I'm doubtful we will find an Asuka player. If she's really that key to the game I could play her and drop Rei. In truth I'd prefer to play Rei and her role is why I joined the game because I've never done that and she is my favourite character in all time in any anime but if Asuka is more important to the game...

Heck, I'm sure there are some ladies out there who like the series... or even if they don't know it but like anime generally and would be willing to read AD which would take them all of a couple of hours...

How about advertising for Asuka and Rei, and if we find a Rei, Haibane can move to Asuka?

It'd be a bonus if you played Hikari for sure.  And I wouldn't say Asuka's totally key to the game: if you had claimed her and we were struggling to find a Rei, I wouldn't be doing anything different.  It's a completionist exercise, and I wouldn't want to keep someone from playing a character they really wanted to play.

Not having Asuka's a bummer, but not having a Rei would be just as big a one.

And to Karma, eh, nein, that just doesn't really sit right with me, for the reason I gave above.

I'm happy with Karma's idea. It'd be my second choice but if it means getting the game off the ground I'd be ok with it.

Like I said, it's not Asuka that's keepiong the game off the ground, but completion.  The flaw of optimism, I suppose, that I tend to think that if we try hard enough or wait long enough, everything will fall into place.

If you're really okay with it I don't see the harm, but come Friday, I'll start the game no matter what.

I don't think we're lacking Asuka fans/players or Rei fans/players specifically but females who know and like and want to RP an Evangelion setting...

I have a good few friends on E who are great RPers but probably don't care for the series. I could start asking a few of them if you want. If we're going for an AD style Asuka it'd be easier for someone to come in cold and understand and play that character than the TV series Asuka who I agree is pretty hard to get right in all her f****d up glory. For that you do need a fan I think.
