Eva Fanfiction

EVA: Light and Water

Synopsis

“SEELE sent Kaworu Nagisa to Tokyo-3 as its envoy for NERV, but as soon as he arrives he becomes involved, facing the challenge of trying to change the people around him, especially the Children. Above all, sometimes prophecies aren’t carved in stone.”

The Story Behind Eva: Light and Water

On October 7, 2003, Light and Water was first conceived as an Evangelion fanfic after I answered an online quiz asking me what Eva character I am, and I got a Kaworu Nagisa. I asked my mates at the old Darkscribes.org Forum and wondered if this was a cosmic joke.

For a bit of a background, previously I tried to create a Higher Learning (by Christopher “Strike Fiss” Brummet) spin-off fanfic, but after five chapters I gave it up because at the time it was my first time writing and I couldn’t do it right.

Going back to Light and Water, initially I thought it to be a dumb fate (at that time Kaworu was saddled with unpleasant stereotypes) but on that day, as there were too many Shinji x Rei fics and Shinji x Asuka fics,  I realized I could make a new and unique twist to the continuity by stretching TV Episode 24 and do the impossible:

Why don’t we write a Kaworu x Rei fanfic?

From there, it was a whole new kind of ballgame.

Since then, I finished the first eight chapters of Light and Water, having put it through several pre-readers, but at the cost of speed and time. Eventually real-life priorities forced me to set it aside. In those years of leaving LW dormant, however, I held the pieces of Chapter 9 alive in my mind, even as I worked and sometimes looked for work.

But by February 2010 I made the judgment call to pick it up, dust it clean and continue writing what is now Season Two, starting from Chapter 9.

As of September 22, 2010, Eva: Light and Water, still enshrined at Fanfiction.net, has 29 chapters, +200k words and 54 reviews. As part of my reasons to create this blog, however, this section will serve as an archive for LW and to make it more accessible to other readers.
