Summary: Shinji Ikari and Leia Organa form a bond, while other members of NERV arrive in this universe.
RIP Carrie Fisher, December 27, 2016.
(Alderaan, Royal Palace)
Shinji Ikari rested in his bed in the royal palace. He was staring up at the ceiling and just trying to come to grips with everything he had heard, learned and seen.
He was still injured, but his recovery was far greater than he had ever known before in Tokyo-3.
He was in a different universe, far from Tokyo-3 and far from the planet Earth he had once known. He was without his friends, his comrades at NERV, even his Evangelion or his S-DAT.
He was here, on a strange planet with technology and a lifestyle he did not understand.
Alien life forms, all kinds of monsters he had never known existed.
But what was more, is that he had landed in this place, during a very difficult time.
Since the end of the Clone Wars, the Galactic Empire had been making great headway in solidifying it's hold on EVERY corner of the universe. In a rather militant and fascist manner.
The people that Shinji had fallen in with were amongst those who opposed the tyrannical rule of the Empire and sought to bring about change.
There were some that argued that the democracy that had once been, had given rise to the Empire, and that if it were restored, it would ultimately lead to another tyrannical regime. While a new way needed to be found, the first step was to get rid of the regime at present.
However, Shinji wondered where he would fit into this new galaxy. Or universe. The problem was that he was a complete stranger to this world, and yet he had no idea what he was actually supposed to do in his own world.
He followed orders, but didn't understand why that was so important. There was so much he didn't know, and now, he had to start all over again.
He faintly touched the facial scar on the right side of his face, which was perhaps the one scar the doctors couldn't heal. The doctors were at a loss as to how it was still present.
To Shinji, it was a reminder of how much he had failed in his life. It was his first scar from his battle against the Third Angel, on the same day that he arrived in Tokyo-3.
Now that he thought about it, he hadn't won that fight so much as activated Unit-01. From what he had heard, the Eva did the real fighting.
Shinji groaned as he felt just frustrated by himself and his failures.
Which was odd, since he had had no training, no idea that giant monsters existed, no idea that his father had spent years trying to perfect the Evangelion weapons.
He didn't know.
So... how was that his fault?
Yet, he couldn't shake the unimaginable guilt of it all.
He was lost, yet again.
"Yes?" he asked.
"Shinji? May I come in?" Leia said from behind the door.
"Uh, sure." Shinji called back.
The door slid open and Leia Organa entered the room, holding a datapad in her hand.
"Shinji. How are you doing?" she asked.
"Good." he said as he sat up. "My injuries are healed. I don't know what that stuff was that you used but it works better than what I was used to."
"It's called bacta. Especially useful for all types of injuries. From what you said, the medical technology of your world doesn't sound very advanced." she said.
"Not really." he said as he touched absent-mindedly touched his scar.
Leia realized that it was something personal and let it go.
"So, my father has agreed to have you trained to help us fight against the Empire." Leia said.
"Oh? Who's going to train me?" Shinji asked.
"Well, because of your 'unique' situation, my father has reached out to someone named Ferus Olin. He used to be a Jedi before he left their Order, during the Clone Wars. He has since been covertly working for the Empire, and feeding us bits of information about their inner workings. But father thinks that he might be getting close to be suspected. Especially by Darth Vader."
Shinji had only heard bits and pieces of this Darth Vader, but he didn't sound like anything he was supposed to.
At least no one from my world will be forced to fight in another war. He thought as he and Leia started down the hallway to meet Shinji's new teacher.
"Keep moving, people!" Han Solo shouted as he continued to fire at the Mantellian Savrips that were currently trying to rip them apart.
His first mate, the wookiee Chewbacca, fired at the Savrips as the purple-haired woman directed the three teenagers to run.
"Get to the ship!" Han shouted, pointing to the hanger across from them.
The group raced into the hanger and stopped when they saw the large, saucer-shaped ship.
"Space ships, alien monsters, laser weapons. What whacked out science fiction show did we wind up in?" Toji groaned in disbelief.
"Just get inside!" Misato shouted.
"Do we have a choice?" Rei asked.
The group boarded the ship, followed by Han and Chewbacca as they closed the ships door and raced to the cockpit.
The Savrips were pounding on the hull of the ship as Han and Chewie got the engines fired up and quickly took off, leaving some of the Savrips flung off the hull of their ship as they took off.
Once the ship was outside the atmosphere from Ord Mantell, Han finally took the time to question his new guests.
"Okay, look, sweetheart, I appreciate you and your friends dropping in on us and saving our lives from that Black Sun hit squad, and since me and Chewie saved you guys from those Savrips, I'd call us even. But I think some explanations are in orders." Han said to Misato.
"Yeah, they are. From you guys as well." Misato said.
"Names?" Han asked.
"Major Misato Katsuragi. Director of Operations for NERV." the purple-haired woman said.
"Rei Ayanami. First Child of NERV." the blue-haired, red-eyed albino girl said.
"Mari Illustrious Makinami. Fourth Child of NERV." the brown-haired, glasses-wearing girl said.
"Toji Suzuhara. I'm... not really with them." the track-suit wearing male teenager said.
"Right. I'm Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon, on which you guys are now guests."
"ARRGH!" the large, furry creature said.
"And this is my first mate, Chewbacca. He's a wookiee." Han said.
"I think we're gonna need a lot of explanations." Misato said.
While the adults talked, Toji, Rei and Mari were seated at a half-circle bench with a table.
"I don't understand what's going on here? Where are we?" Toji asked.
"I do not know. But it is obvious that the 12th Angel has somehow teleported us into a new universe. One that I do not recognize." Rei said.
"First Eva 01, then us. You think Shinji could..." Mari started to say.
"Perhaps. But we do not know where he is. Or who has found him." Rei said.
"Man. At least Kensuke isn't here. He'd be geeking out over all this tech stuff."
"Yes. Perhaps no one else will be dragged along with us." Rei said quietly.
I know, it's a little short, as I've been working on so many projects and updates as of late.
But for May 4th, I couldn't help but update this. At least a little.
My problem is I've got a lot of updates, and even more ideas, but I need time to write them all down and whatnot. I guess I need focus more than anything else.
And I'm not going to write out this thing year for year, or follow Star Wars Rebel for this.
The next chapter will be about a four-year time skip, with Shinji and the others reunited and helping the Alliance. There will also be bits and pieces from the Star Wars movie Rogue One. So... look out for that.
And please, reviews and ideas are welcome.
Tensions were high as the alien ships were poised over Tokyo-3.
"Do we have any idea who they are? Or where they come from?" Misato asked.
"No, but... what is that?" Ritsuko asked, looking over Maya's shoulder.
"It's some kind of warning... that's impossible!" Maya Ibuki gasped.
"What is?" Misato asked.
"We've... we've been invaded!"
"What do you..."
The Command Center gasped as several white armored troopers entered the large room, followed by a tall and menacing figure dressed all in black with a cape, black helmet and thick black armor.
"Where is your commander?" the dark armored figure asked.
"Who are you that you think you can... URK!" Gendo Ikari gasped as he was suddenly levitated off his 'throne' and brought down to his level.
"I am Darth Vader, supreme commander of the Galactic Empire. And this facility is now under our occupation and control." the dark man said.
"If you think I'm going to bow to you you mechanical monstrosity, you..."
"Such an annoying creature." Darth Vader said as Gendo's body fell to the ground. "Now... any other resistance?"
No one shook their heads.
"Any attempt made against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they've obtained." Gendo said. "This station is now the ultimate power in the universe. I suggest we use it."
"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant, next to the power of the Force." Darth Vader said.
"Don't try to frighten me with your sorcerers ways, Lord Vader." Gendo Ikari sneered at the tall, dark and mechanical man. "Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not allowed you to conjure up the stolen data tapes. Or given you clairvoyance enough to locate the Rebel base...URK!"
"I find your lack of faith disturbing." Vader said as he continued to Force Choke the man.
"Enough of this! Vader, release him!" Moff Tarkin said.
"As you wish." Vader said as he released the man, who gasped and growled at Vader. "And don't even think about it, Gendo."
Gendo growled as thoughts of killing Vader and taking his powers still resonated in his mind.
