Hello, some time ago I heard (I don't remember where) that the tree beside Kaworu's piano in eva 3.33 has some kind of symbolic meaning?? But I don't really have the source of that and I really want to read up on it, so I was wondering if you knew anything about this. Thanks!
You mean how the tree is shaped like a heart and isn’t just one tree, but actually two trees entwined together (Inosculation/Marriage Trees)? It’s been discussed a couple of times (which are probably buried way back in the Rebuild of Evangelion tag). Here’s one example, you may find more by searching tree on this blog.
Thank you……… the validation………… it soothes my soul
2. Is there a trope you’ve yet to try your hand at, but really want to?
Ummmmm, I like ghost stories. I really liked yours, actually.
5. Share one of your strengths.
I like to think I’m good at coming up with really, really specific analogies. Here’s an example:
“ ‘Of course you did,’ Kaworu said in the same indulging tone one directs toward the high school artist who insists that no, my painting of the Seven Deadly Sins as sexy ladies isn’t like those other paintings of the Seven Deadly Sins as sexy ladies.”
17. Do you write your story from start to finish, or do you write the scenes out of order?
Start to finish.
37. Talk about your current wips.
Oh gosh! So many exciting things happening. I just sent in my fic for the kawoshin fanbook; the description on it is “a modern domestic therapy shenanigans fairytale”, and it features wish granting and Drunk Romantic Dramedy Netflix Roulette. I’ll post it to AO3 a little bit after the fanbook is released.
Ponyo, Ponyo, Ponyo, fishy in the sea, tiny little fishy, how I’ve neglected thee. I have the whole thing planned out; it’s the actual writing of it that’s the problem. It was actually that fic’s anniversary earlier this month (Sept. 9th I think?) and I only have 8 chapters to show for it; how embarrassing. But it will be finished, even if it takes me 14 years and the world ends and I’m stuck playing a piano outside, which can’t be good for the piano, just saying. Especially if it’s humid.
I’m also doing a fic exchange with @ms-notebook that involves Kaworu and Shinji meeting at a lot of weddings
I AM SO EXCITED for November to come because I’m working on an Orpheus and Eurydice AU kawoshin that involves gross bastardization of multiple theologies. I think it’s going to be my first fic where they’re in an established relationship. Basically, Shinji goes to the underworld to bring back Kaworu after Gendo murders him only unlike Orpheus Shinji actually succeeds because I don’t think I could write angst without a happy ending and it’s going to be the most self-indulgent, sickeningly romantic story I’ve ever written and also Kaworu can turn into a bird à la this entry in the Aarne-Thompson classification of fairytales and I want to just type the entire plot here but I suppose I should keep some of it a surprise aaaaaahhh this is the most excited I’ve ever been about a story
See, this is the reason I never actually get around to posting anything and my fics just languish
Thanks again for playing the “feed my insecure need for external validation” game! This was a fun round.
