''The Turn of Haruhi Suzumiya'' is a ''SuzumiyaHaruhi'' / ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' {{Crossover}} FanFic written by Oroboro. It combines Kyon’s snarky and focused narration in the setting of murder and mystery of Umineko.

For the second summer vacation trip, the SOS Brigade visits the island of Rokkenjima. Expecting a simple trip of camping, hiking, and (pretend) mystery solving on a long deserted island, Kyon and Haruhi instead find themselves pulled into the old and long-forgotten game board, [[Main.TrappedInThePast intruding into the Ushiromiya family conference of October 4th, 1986]]. Knowing full well the [[Main.KillEmAll ultimate fate about to fall upon the island’s inhabitants]], Kyon must [[Main.SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong race to solve the mystery and find the truth]]... before they [[Main.AnyoneCanDie end up as just another mysterious death]] in Rokkenjima’s endless cat-box.

It can be found [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7583784/1/The_Turn_of_Haruhi_Suzumiya here.]] The sequel, “The Counterattack of Haruhi Suzumiya” can be found [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7736133/1/ here]].

----
!!In addition to the character tropes present in the original work, this story provides examples of:
* [[spoiler:Ambiguous Ending: While ''Turn'' goes for a DownerEnding like Umineko's first Episode, ''Counterattack'' may be a BittersweetEnding.]]
* AgentMulder and AgentScully: Kyon and Haruhi have always had this kind of dynamic, but it’s magnified here when Kyon easily accepts the magic going on and Haruhi rejects it entirely.
* AnyoneCanDie: Considering this is a crossover with [[Franchise.WhenTheyCry ''Umineko'']], ''yes''.
* ArsonMurderandJaywalking: Disscussed by Kyon when he mentions Jaywalking is as far as he’ll stretch his morals in a situation like this.
* BloodyMurder: Uhh... check.
* [[spoiler: Bolivian Army Ending]]: [[spoiler: Kyon and Battler face off against an army of demonic goats. [[Main.ShootTheShaggyDog They don’t make it]].]]
* BoomHeadshot: The Witch's Epitaph involves targeting one's forehead.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler:[[Main.RippleEffectProofMemory Battler]] (Piece!Battler, not the real Battler)]] starts off pretty broken, and [[spoiler:Haruhi]] breaks down over the course of the story, culminating in the first story's Tea Party.
* BrickJoke: Haruhi snores.
* BrilliantButLazy: Kyon somehow manages to combines both traits and uses them to defeat [[spoiler: Belphegor. Of course, Nagato was helping too.]]
* BrownNote: [[spoiler:The Red Truth]] can’t be understood by normal humans on the game board, and leaves Haruhi utterly baffled when she somehow uses it.
* CellPhonesAreUseless: Hard to get cell phone service on a deserted island ''in 1986''. At least a useless phone doubles as a flashlight in a pinch.
* ClarkesThirdLaw: Kyon doesn’t really care how Nagato’s, or anybody else’s powers are explained. It’s all the same as magic to a normal person.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Kyon and Haruhi (who were washed up on the shore) were found by the cousins and brought into the mansion for treatment. [[SureLetsGoWithThat They decide to play along]] and everybody buys it except for Battler. If anything, this serves as a CallBack to Umineko's 5th Game.
* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Way'' darker than Haruhi, but about on par with Umineko.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Several scenes are [[WordOfGod intentionally]] reminiscent of scenes from the [[SuzumiyaHaruhi source]] [[UminekoNoNakuKoroNi material]].
* DrowningMySorrows: [[spoiler: Battler]] has given up and fallen into this.
* FlatCharacter: Most Umineko characters don’t get a lot of time spared for characterization. But, [[Main.JustifiedTrope Kyon’s only a single narrator]] and there are an awful lot of them (plus, there's not enough time to spend with them anyway).
* FlatWhat: Comes with a DeadpanSnarker as our narrator.
* ForWantOfANail: Kyon refers to this one by name, comparing himself to [[Main.JerkassWoobie Battler]] [[spoiler: if Kyon never managed to escape Endless Eight.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Kyon pulls a YouShallNotPass on the goats to let Haruhi escape. [[Main.LastStand Battler helps fight the goats]], but [[Main.DownerEnding things go downhill anyway]]...]]
* ImprovisedWeapon: Kyon's trusty curtain rod, a solid but hollow tube of brass. [[spoiler: Nagato manipulating the data to make the rod more durable and powerful may have something to do with it.]]
* [[spoiler:KillEmAll: ''When the seagulls cry, there are no survivors''.]]
* [[spoiler:KillerGameMaster: The witches Bernkastel and Lambdadelta return for the epilogue of ''Turn'' and the entirety of ''Counterattack''.]]
* LampshadeHanging: Everyone’s favorite narrator refuses to leave a bulb uncovered as he’s confronted with the world of Umineko.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Kyon spends a lot of time doing this, especially once he figures out where he’s ended up. Coupled with the occasional ThisIsReality.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It’s the whole purpose of Umineko after all.
* MoodWhiplash: Kyon's narration can swap between snark and horror at the drop of a hat. Invoked in-universe when he's elated after beating [[spoiler: the Stake Belphegor]] and then his mood immediately falls when he turns around to remember [[spoiler: Jessica's corpse]].
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Kyon gets the crap beat out of him by [[spoiler:Eva, who thinks Kyon killed George]].
* NotHimself: Battler Ushiromiya is moody, a drunk, and very distrusting of Kyon and Haruhi, unlike the WideEyedIdealist from the original games. Kinda like [[Main.GenerationXerox his Grandfather]].[[spoiler: That's because he's not the real Battler, but merely a piece from the gameboard with [[RippleEffectProofMemory sentience]], which led to [[Main.BreakTheCutie his cynicism]]. He eventually [[TookALevelInKindness lightens up]] when he realizes that Kyon and Haruhi are in the same boat as him.]]
* PrettyLittleHeadshots: See BoomHeadshot above.
* ShesNotMyGirlfriend: It's more present here than in the originals (given the circumstances of how they apparently washed up together on Rokkenjima), but Kyon never gets to finish his statement and the way he's so protective of Haruhi (for [[Main.RealityWarper good]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt reason]]) seems to contradict his stand. He eventually stops trying to convince people.
* [[spoiler:ShootTheShaggyDog: The entirety of ''Turn'' and most of ''Counterattack''.]]
* ShoutOut: More than some, less than others.
* Troll: [[spoiler: Bernkastel]] is revealed in the “????” chapter to be up to her usual antics.
* WhamEpisode: Some of the chapters, but the Tea Party probably hits the hardest. [[Main.CallBack Like the Tea Party]] [[Main.FridgeBrilliance from Umineko's Episode 1.]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Done deliberately: Kyon completely forgets about the message he finds in his bathroom. Twice.
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: [[spoiler: Battler]] is implied to have faced this and failed.
