has anyone read 'A Song For Lya' by George R R Martin? its a short story, novella length. its pretty much a condensed, better version of Neon Genesis Evangelion, minus the pretentious religous symbolism bullshit--it even has the fucking HIVEMIND mass, except in the novella its red goo, not orange tang mix. I'm pretty sure the author is completely unaware of NGE so its not plagiarism or anything, but the underlying theme and storyline is creepily similar. and its just a really good read.
TL;DR HAY GUISE CHECK OUT THIS STORAY RIPPING OFF EVA LOL
