I'm GethN7, one of the senior administrators of the All The Tropes wiki on the Orain wikifarm service, and one of my fellow admins is Vorticity, a longtime fan of the UF series who recently convinced me to check out the Symphony Of The Sword arc.
I must confess, I was incredibly leery of doing so, mostly because I had been exposed to Neon Exodus Evangelion first, and quite frankly, I despised it with every fiber of my being, and only made it a short way through before quitting it in utter disgust.
I apologize if that sounds harsh, but I have to admit this colored my desire to read anything else produced here, but Vorticity convinced me to give SotS a try anyway.
Now that, I like.
I have to admit the beginning was rough going, especially some cringe inducing zeerust in the first part, not to mention I was dreading what sort of mockery would be done to the characters of Revolutionary Girl Utena and Ah My Goddess (two series I greatly enjoy to this day, as well as Magic Knights Rayearth) like I how I felt NXE committed sacrilege at best to Evangelion.
To my pleasant surprise, this series has handled both rather well, and while I'm generally rather cynical of most crossover fiction and fanfiction in general, I just recently finished the second part of SotS and definitely plan to finish the rest.
I'm especially impressed with how most of the crossover elements make a surprising amount of sense so far, and if the rest of SotS is as high quality as what I've read so far, I may read the rest of UF sooner or later.
Anyway, sorry for the wordiness, but just thought I should tell everyone what made me sign up, and while I'm not sure how much I'll post here, I do hope to have some fun while I'm here.
