>Female, Freja-Signi Bjornsdottir"BJORN! WAKE UP!"That shrill voice belongs to no other than Karl Brunson, a fellow chosen child. AESIR mandates all chosen children to share a dormitory, and by sheer bad luck you have to share it with him."What she says. Come on sleepyhead, wake up."That other voice is your 'handler', an AESIR officer by the name of Helga Gunnlod. She's been sent to keep watch over you two, to her amusement, you guess. From beneath the pillow you desperately dug into last night to escape from Karl's snoring, you can see Karl staring with a smile on his face, and Helga sitting on a chair, sipping coffee, apparently oblivious to your torment.>What do we say?[ ] To Karl: "Are you always this loud back in your village?"[ ] To Karl: "Shut up, or I'll kick your ass!"[ ] To Helga: "Can't you do something about him?"[ ] To Helga: "Five more minutes, mom..."

"We don't do surgeries for trivial stuff." She gulps the rest of her coffee, then points her mug to an industrial-grade earmuff on top of the table. "You just got to deal with it, like I do."As she smiles, Karl interrupts with a question, seemingly out of the blue. "Also, what's up with your name anyways? Freja-Signi? What's with the hyphen?"He's clearly cruising for a bruising, you think."Are you always this loud back in your village, wherever it is?""Naw. Dunno. Maybe? Never paid attention that much.">Do/Say:[ ] Grab pillow, use it as makeshift throwing axe on Karl's face. "You deserved that!"[ ] Groggily wake up, ignoring Karl's comments.

>>28014138Because it's in a military-style barracks that's been turned into a dorm for pilots?
>>28014010Er. Now that I think about it, that kind of implies that the parallel to the Mass Production Evangelions would be the Valkyrja.(Unless the Evangelions are "Einherjar", as the title suggests, and the pilots are "Valkyries". If so: haha, poor Karl.)>>28014094[x] Groggily wake up, ignoring Karl's comments. "Whaaatever, bumpkin.">>28014109Pic related?

>>28014169>>28014137Groggily, you rise from our bed, only to remember that it is a bunk bed and you smack against Karl's bed. This triggers some more triumphant jeering from Karl, which you promptly ignore. "Whaaatever, bumpkin." As you sit on the table that's smack dab in the middle of the room, Helga comes up with your breakfast. "Come on, eat up! Cooked this just for you!"And you stare at the plate, recognizing the contents as some kind of sandwich. As you bite, however, you just realized the filling of that sandwich: lutefisk. Helga, you lazy cook, you didn't even heat it up. But you're hungry enough to down it all in few bites and some gulps of milk. "Done with your breakfast already? Wow. Anyways, get ready soon, you two, and head to the AESIR HQ.

It looks like the desiccated cadavers of squirrels run over by trucks, but after it is soaked and reconstituted and the lye is washed out and it's cooked, it looks more fish-related, though with lutefisk, the window of success is small. It can be tasty, but the statistics aren't on your side. It is the hereditary delicacy of Swedes and Norwegians who serve it around the holidays, in memory of their ancestors, who ate it because they were poor. Most lutefisk is not edible by normal people. It is reminiscent of the afterbirth of a dog or the world's largest chunk of phlegm.>[x] Ride with Helga, she owns a carWhat could go wrong?

As long as you don't mind Karl being along for the ride."You sigh, but keep a stiff upper lip. Hey, you can always ignore Karl, right? What can go wrong, right? You go outside the government-sponsored housing complex, looking at a Volkwagen beetle with a very suspicious scrape on one of its side. Karl is already sitting on the back seat, humming a tune to himself. Well, at least you can call dibs on the front se- oh wait it's occupied. By a midget walrus. "Oh yeah! You haven't met Lars, have you Freja? Say hi, Lars! He's one of the bioengineered walruses." As if on cue, Lars shouted a loud HROONK, and waved a flipper.As you think the day won't get any worse, you unwittingly shared a seat with Karl, and-The 5-minute drive is a sheer nightmare.

>>28014823>>28014835...and you vacate your mind from your body, thinking of a happy place. Even when the ride ends, you are still prancing about in the dandelion fields, not even registering the involuntary boob grab by Karl, who is now shivering on his side of the seat. You are only woken from your fugue state when Helga says, "Aww, look at you two, I knew you'd be fast friends!"This is not friendship, Helga, it is the mutual bond of post-traumatic disorder expressing itself differently.As you regain your senses and your mind return to its earthly body, you noticed the scared Karl and his hands, which are gripped tightly.One of them on one of your boob.Quickly smacking sense in the form of your foot against his face, you release Karl from his mortal coil, temporarily. He still has a shoe-shaped expression on his face when you two strode into AESIR HQ, located in the megastructure that is Yggdrasil, rising out of the Baltic sea. It is divided into three levels: Utgard, the base of the structure, houses most of the military and defense systems; Midgard, sandwiched in the middle, containing the civilian areas, and Utgard, where the center of the AESIR HQ is, and where you are currently.But as you change into your battlesuit, alarms rang out. Helga busts in just as you finish calibrating. "Test's cancelled, we got a situation."

>>28015263That's just the alien DNA showing through.
>>28015276FS is the sort of girl who was a tomboy, developed early, and hated how people treated her after that. She is reflexively cruel towards those who she feels sexualize her, and longs to go back to childhood and innocence, but does not know how to analyze or express this. Additionally, she does not sexualize herself, but instead rejects the feminine ideals and is upset with her own body's new, pubescent, form, and takes out this frustration on Karl, whom to her represents the sexual dawn of late childhood/early adolescence.However, FS is not strictly asexual. She, like many teenagers, has a high and confusing libido, and does not know how to express it, instead going for long runs and reading vampire romance novels.

He grins, but that grin melts as you swiftly kicked him on the nuts, lightly. "That's for peeping!" You say to his agonized face, then turn towards Helga. "Right, what's the sitch?"Helga, her amused smile fading to seriousness, replies. "We've got something headed our way. Get in the Einherjar and fight it off. It'll be you, Karl, and Hilda.""Wait, who's Hilda?""I am." A voice from behind Karl emanates, coming from a fair-haired girl roughly about your age. A strange thing about her, her eyes are golden."What is it you need from me, friend Freja?" Hilda asks.>say:[ ] "Oh, nothing, just wondering who you are."[ ] "Aren't you one of the Valkyrie?"[ ] "Nothing, wanna fight about it?"here's hoping no IP/ISP blocks

Then, if she rejects us, we go full scorched earth on her social life.>>28015224>I don't remember Asuka being dere to Shinji everIt's really a comparative thing. Asuka is defined largely by her fear of rejection. She's so guarded against it that she actively pushes people away, just so she won't feel bad when she realizes how few friends she has. Hikari is pretty much her ONLY friend.But she clearly makes an effort to be friendly to Shinji. But she isn't really comfortable with her attraction to/feelings for him, which is exacerbated by Shinji being so full of self-loathing that he constantly rationalizes away her advances because "there's no way a girl like her would even notice me". This in turn sends her emotional walls right back up, every time she tries to lower them to him. And she won't just outright say "Shinji, I like you." because she doesn't want to risk being rejected. So she winds up sending mixed signals.>>28015331>vampire romance novelsNo. Fuck no.Writes bad Vinland Saga slashfics?>>28015394>[x] "Oh, nothing, just wondering who you are."

>>28015331That's a lot closer to being a description of Karl, I think, than of FS; note his casually and selfishly childish behavior. Rather than accept his own puberty, he's trying to deny it it with regressive behaviors -- mostly directed at FS, since he unconsciously blames her for his own sublimated sexual desire towards her.>>28015394[x] "Combat assistance, apparently."

>>28015486I think they share a fear, and manifest it in different ways. FS wants adulthood and fears sexuality, an arguably integral part of adult life, while Karl fears sexuality and wants childhood, therefore acting as a child in a faux-innocence
>>28015677>FS wants adulthood and fears sexualitySo we're a slightly older Naota with tits?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTM_Me312S4

She offers an awkward hand to you, of which you cautiously accept. You whisper to Helga, "What's up with her?""Oh, she's an orphan since she was young, you know. But come on, we have a battle to prepare for." Helga motions Hilda and Karl to follow her, and you follow as well. In a hangar marked Valhall, the machines of flesh that is the Einherjars lay in their vertical beds, towering massively over the maintenance crew that is finishing their checks and double-checks. Massive wires plug into their backs, the Einherjars are being fed their breakfast: electricity. These are what you're here to pilot. You see Karl head for his designated Einherjar, E-02, while Hilda head for hers, E-00. You head towards your metal giant, E-01. You sit in the now-exposed cockpit, which will slide down the neck of the Einherjar in a second. As the visual cortex connects to the neural link, you see that Karl has two progressive axes, while Hilda has an AT penetrator lance.>As for your armaments...[ ] A sabot rifle[ ] Progressive sword and shield[ ] Electro-halberd[ ] other (fill in)
