Ehr...was I saying the contrary? Or, did I give you the impression that I was saying the
contrary? I was not. ^_^
Ah,..but I can see what in that phrase of mine could have misled you. I was meaning
that, IRL (="in real life", right?), some facts can be proved, and facts that can be
proved could be either true or false, real or unreal.
On the other hand,in an imaginary world, "truth" is what the author says. Of course.
[note: the passage coming is a little weird. Don't say I didn't warn you...^_^;;]
Not end of the story, however. ^_^
If Gainax says that Kyoko Souryu fell into mental breakdown (soulless should be the
correct word for it, maybe?) and believed a doll to be her daughter, thus ignoring her
true one, and maybe they do show me her behaving this way, sure, I _do_ believe them.
Still, if I would like it better to imagine, and I say, to _imagine_, that Kyoko went
crazy/soulless, thus believed her daughter to be a banana, thus tried to
split her, I would feel free to _imagine_ that, whatever they say.
Just because I'm thinking about an _imaginary_ world, anyway. _And_,
because my mind, and my imagination as a consequence, is _my_ mind, not Gainax', thus it
works differently from theirs. I find it quite legitimate for me to construct an
Evangelion-based imaginary world in my head, modifying it as I like it most.
If you don't see a reason for creating my own mental Evangelion world, as the official
one is already so cool, well, there's indeed no other reason but that I like
overstepping the marks of the story told by the author, and creating my own from it.
Then again, I will never, I say, NEVER even attempt (dare would be a nice word for it,
too) to persuade anybody that what I'd call *my version*, or *my view* is the best
possible one, is better than anybody's else, or, worse than worse, that it is more TRUE
than the official one. I won't ever do somthing like that, not on this ML, not on the
Net, nor with my friends, nor with my parents, nor with my kitten.
I would try not to even talk about my version too much, and if I do, I will always make
everything possible to state that it is *my own private view*. This thing is supposed to
stay in my head, and not to go 'contaminating' others'. ^_^;
Also, if somebody would say something against the official truth,
claiming his/her interpretation to be better than the official one, I will support as
strongly as I can the official one. ^_-
Oh, by the way, in case you're wondering, I do not think Asuka's mother tried to 'split
her like a banana'. And the reason is that I find the official truth much greater. ^_^

Let's make this clear, so: I will NEVER argue _against_ them.
They made my favourite Anime, the best ever (IMHO), that is, Nadia (well, don't jump at
me, but I haven't seen as much of Evangelion as of Nadia yet, so I can't really see if
it's as great as Nadia is, right now). I could worship them for that. ^_^
However, though devotely accepting their version, I will feel free to imagine other
possibilities in the story (both for Evangelion and Nadia). And I will NEVER claim my
version to be the true one, anyway.
Is 'to have a glimpse of imagination' forbidden, perhaps? I hope it is not. ^_^

Of course. It's true, and once the creator says it, I will just acceptit.
By the way, Akane and Ranma DO love each other???! Really?
Ooooh, I would have never guessed it myself...[kidding ^_-]

I had not been arguing, I did not argue, I was not arguing, I've not been arguing, I'm
not arguing, I have no intention of arguing, I'm not going to be arguing, I will not be
arguing. I'm serious. WHY do think I would argue against anyone? WHY? Sigh. ;_;
" there's no need to argue anymore
I gave all I could
but it left me so sore
And the thing that makes me mad
is the one thing that I had "
