NOTE: If this question belongs in the fan fiction section, I'll understand if it's moved. I wasn't sure where to put it. I've decided to write a crossover fanfic using Transformers and the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion (however, for the latter, I will use original characters because the cast in NGE is all full of loopy-heads). However, I'm sort of stuck on which continuity I should because some have certain elements that would fit with NGE perfectly (ex. plot etc.). This dilemma has been on my mind for a while, that I can't sleep (It's 12:40 AM here). After eliminating those I felt were "unfit" for the crossover, I have come up with three options: G1, the movies or an original continuity of my own design. But, some of the said continuities have pros that would match with NGE and cons that wouldn't fit. Here's what I mean (please take every detail into consideration): G1 Pros: - It was the very thing that started it all - The animations make it easier to imagine scenes for the story, given that NGE was 2-D as well (I think) - Excellent story plot Cons: - Too lighthearted (as in 'kid-friendly') compared to NGE - WAY TOO BIG of a cast Movies Pros: - The seriousness of the plot is very appropriate for crossing over NGE - Character situations felt more realistic - I may have a plot in mind Cons: - It's live action where as NGE is an anime. It would be very awkward to imagine scenes for the story unless I imagine NGE as a live action series as well - Not enough story due to too many explosions - Not enough Autobots (although, I could probably fix that) Original continuity Pros: - Gives me freedom to manipulate things to fit with NGE - Could probably add elements of both the continuities above Cons: - It would take too long for me to come up with ideas on making it "original" - Not many people seem to read original continuities Oh! And if you're wondering what Neon Genesis Evangelion is, it's about a boy who's recruited by the military faction known as NERV in order to combat a grotesque race called "Angels" using EVA units (or Evangelions) which are essentially Gundams that are actually giant cyborgs. Here is a wiki on it. Here is a bunch of clips put together to the music to the series' opening theme. WARNING: It contains rather graphic imagery in terms of violence (and some, but very little, adult content). I would greatly appreciate your opinions. I may not post the story on TFW2005 forums because the plot contains things that are part of NGE and not Transformers. However, it will be on fanfiction.net. Thank you for your time.
