You were featured on Superdickery. 

Apparently, "only slightly more batshit than the source material."

Wish there was a sequence of this.

Simon Pegg: Wait a sec, this is a cool picture, yet it doesn't make sense. You get touched by Rei, you become Rei? I mean you obviously can't just grow a suit!
Nick Frost: I dunno, perhaps the disease infects your clothing as well.
Simon Pegg: Are insinuating that my clothes are alive? That's scary.

'Reification' is an actual word, though...
foldabotZ Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Heheh, they will become the first of the Ree!

I've been periodically looking at this comment for five months, and I still can't figure out what you're saying.

I'm referring to Greg Landsmann's Eva AU fanfic "Nobody Dies." Her,e Rei is VERY different from Canon and she has 7 other clone sisters, each with unique personalities, and are collectively known as the Ree("plural" fro Rei).
BaseDeltaZero Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Okay, that makes a bit more sense.

But 'ree' is not the plural of 'rei', in any of the three languages that could be applicable.  It'd be rei (Japanese), rerum (Latin), or reis (French).
Apparently, 'ree' is actually an English word, though.  Meaning excited/enraged.  Which, uh...

Still, the opportunity to title this piece 'Reification' was sorely neglected.

One of the nicer things about the English language, is that we openly steal words from other languages, violate grammar rules whenever convenient; makes sense; or sounds good, change definitions of established words both commonly used or seldom heard for years (remember when gay was a synonym for happy and not a description of your sex life), and freely invent new words at the drop of a hat.... oh look another hat just fell....

So making Ree or The Ree the plural of Rei, can be considered correct usage under several of those rules.

They having tempts 2 wribam gramaire terror possibility as to factor the pointed... but no.

English frequently violates its own grammar because it borrows words from other languages, and brings their grammar along for the ride.  Using 'Rei', as the plural of 'Rei' would be an example of this, because it's a Japanese word using Japanese pluralization rules.

Likewise, 'To be' has an apparently different word for basically every declension because of a complicated chain of events on the road from Proto Indo-European to English that basically means it is a different root word for every declension.

Exceptions to the rule have reasons for being exceptions.  Using 'Ree' as the plural of 'Rei' is just randomly changing a vowel with no relation to anything because... uh... it sounds quirky?  It's not borrowing from another language.  It's not truncating for clarity or ease of pronunciation.  It's just nonsensical and confusing, obeying neither the stated grammatical rules of English nor the unstated linguistic rules of language evolution.  The only rule under which it can be considered appropriate grammar is the 'Eh fuck it' rule.

(Also I'm not aware of any language that pluralizes by changing i to e, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist... however 'Rei' is Japanese, maybe with a double/triple entendre to Latin/French)

'Ree' is the in-universe term they use in Nobody Dies and other related stories.

Could you create a story or a comic to go with this image? I do believe that this would be really awesome.

I like.
Dragon-FangX Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Was there ever a story or comic involving this? Cause its always the one shots, if it is a one shot, that always look like they'd make the most interesting stories. ;P
A3Kitsune Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011
Try a fanfic called "And If That Don't Work". Shingi and Misato have their minds transfered into spare Rei-clone bodys. Or "Angel Of Light". Ranma Saotome becoes a pilot of Unit 01, and his female form slowly changes to become Yui's form.
atani4312 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011

A3Kitsune Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2011
