  • Recommended by Ronfar, Looney Toons, Luc, gwern, jaimeastorga2000, Daniel LC, Brendan Rizzo
  • Synopsis: Haruhi asks Kyon if he believes in God. The consequences of Haruhi believing in a religion would be a disaster, so he tells her the Riddle of Epicurus: what kind of God would create a world with so much evil and suffering in it?

(Includes Kyon x Haruhi.)

    • YMWV: There's a fairly sizable plothole that belies the so-called "logic" of the story.

One Little Day by Mr CJ
  • Recommended by The Malignancy, Durandall

  • Synopsis: A oneshot exploring Haruhi's thought processes, insecurities, the way she relates to the other brigade members, and the significance of Kyon.
[[reviews:Confessions of a Control Freak]]

Tea of Sagittarius by Rokudena-shi.
  • Recommended by Catt, Jomlos, ZeroXSEED, Sotonya, ahiijny
  • Synopisis: Thanks to a stray thought by Haruhi, Kyon transforms into a girl. The SOS Brigade has to deal with the insanity that breaks forth.
  • Comments: First of all, this a a fan comic. Second of all, while the comic is mostly Safe For Work, the site itself is not. As for the actual fic... Very well drawn, and generally very funny. Well worth a read. Currently on-going series at that moment (2011/01) have 3 major plot arcs and 2 spin-offs mentioned below. Now with its own page, which needs more love.
[[reviews:Tea of Sagittarius]]

Tea of Sagittarius: Kyon x Kyonko by Rokudena-shi.
  • Recommended by Sotonya, Jomlos, ZeroXSEED, Creek917
  • Synopisis: First spin-off/sequel to the Tea of Sagittarius. To kill time on day off, Kyon and Kyonko decide to go to the cinema and karaoke together. Things got... complicated.
  • Comments: This part stay pretty much SFW. Unlike next one...
[[reviews: Tea of Sagittarius: Kyon x Kyonko]]

Tea of Sagittarius: Herb by Rokudena-shi.
  • Recommended by Sotonya, ZeroXSEED, Jomlos, Creek917
  • Synopisis: Second spin-off/sequel to the Tea of Sagittarius. Kyon (John) remembers Kyonko's offer to give him some space for masturbation (since he can't do it in Nagato's home), and comes by for a visit... Things got... complicated. Much, much more complicated.
  • Comments: Being R-18 rated, pretty much NSFW, but still you cant call that hentai at all... Instead, it is rather awkward, confusing... and amusing story.
[[reviews:Tea of Sagittarius: Herb]]

Bad Things Happening to Kyon
  • Recommended by Ninja Supprise
  • Synopisis: There is no real plot, the whole thing is mostly composed of short scenes focussed around movie parodies, pop culture/internet references and the occasional bit of character bashing
  • Comments: This fic is really just begining and it's not really certain how long the whole "movie parodies" thing can be kept up for, but worth a look. Only read chapter 6 if you like being freaked out.
[[reviews:Bad Things Happening to Kyon]]

Taniguchi and Kunikida are... by [[reviews:Taniguchi and Kunikida are...]]

At a Glance by Durandall
  • Recommended by Dont Kill Bugs, Moberemk, Unclouded TJ, GenkiGirl, Pax Empyrean, Brendan Rizzo, Pookiemunch
  • Synopsis: The beginning of TMOHS, with a small change. This small change in a single character ends up changing the story in large ways.
  • Comments: An emotional rollercoaster, and a definite must-read for any Haruhi fan. Also features a CMOA on Taniguchi's part when he chews out Haruhi for her ignorance as to Kyon's condition.
[[reviews:At a Glance]]

Kyonko's New Life by LagomorphMan
  • Recommended by Madan Eccles 19, trekie140
  • Synopsis: Kyon wakes up one day as a girl, in yet another one of Haru(h/k)i's bizarre incidents. Now (s)he must find out what happened, save the world from another near-apocalypse, and hopefully change back to normal. But, first (s)he needs to ask, does (s)he even want to?
    • Comments: Seconded by trekie140. The characters are spot-on while also receiving some much needed depth not found in the anime. It straddles the Second Law of Gender Bending very well, pulling off the right amount of drama that should result from this without too much angst. There's plenty of humor, the plot flows just right, every tool the verse provides is used effecively, Nagato's action scenes are executed flawlessly, time travel is used interestingly without being confusing, and the story could fit right into the canon without contradicting anything.
[[reviews:Kyonko's New Life]]

The Deconstruction of Haruhi Suzumiya by sarsparilla
  • Recommended by Madan Eccles 19, Durandall
  • Synopsis: Shortly after the culture festival Kyon is granted one of his wishes. Haruhi is not happy with the end result that forces her into reconsidering their relationship.
  • Comments: The synopsis for this story doesn't do it justice at all. Long story short: Kyon gets amnesia.
[[reviews:The Deconstruction of Haruhi Suzumiya]]

The Apology by Durandall (with illustrations by sarsparilla)
  • Recommended by Madan Eccles 19, Pax Empyrean
  • Synopsis: After Kyon loses his temper at Haruhi during the shooting of the movie, where did that anger go?
  • Comments: a very well done speculation fic.
[[reviews:The Apology]]

Error in Calculation by Durandall
  • Recommended by Madan Eccles 19, Filraen
  • Synopsis: After school when everyone has left, come to the 1-5 classroom? Seems harmless enough . . . right? A backup watches her primary and wonders if she could do better. Not a match-up for the characters it's about.
  • Comments: Another fic that runs on "what if Kyon didn't survive his meeting with Asakura", expanding mainly in the Yuki's side and the police investigation angle.
[[reviews:Error in Calculation]]

The Shadow of Haruhi Suzumiya by sarsparilla
  • Recommended by Andmeuths, Durandall
  • Synopsis Awakening to a completely new reality , Kyon must make sense of what is going on, and find his way out of the maze of possibilities he is now trapped in. There is more than meets the eye. Far, far more. A fic that is set during the Dissociation.
  • Comments: One of the most interesting fics in Haruhi Suzumiya , and one that could easily fit into canon. This story really puts Dream! Kyon through the emotional meat grinder , while delivering a carefully calculated dosage of mindscrew. Tearjerkers and Crowning Moments of Heartwarming litter this fic. There is also a strong philosophical dimension to this fic.
[[reviews:The Shadow of Haruhi Suzumiya]]

Under Review by Halbarad
  • Recommended by Durandall, Grahf, Unclouded TJ
  • Synopsis: It's a new year at school, and Haruhi's frustrated with the state of affairs in the Brigade. In order to get things back on track, she decides to give everyone their annual review.
  • Comments: Diverges after book 8. The story is written from Haruhi's PoV, which is explored very well as the focus of her reviews shifts....
[[reviews:Under Review]]

LiftToDrag Ratio by halfeatenmoon
  • Recommended by Madan Eccles 19
  • Synopsis: Kyon wasn't that surprised when he ended up with a place at the same university as Haruhi, and getting a student apartment together in Nagoya just seemed like the most sensible thing to do. Until one morning when Kyon wakes up with a pair of wings.
  • Comments: Recently updated after spending a long time as a dead fic.
[[reviews:LiftToDrag Ratio]]

The Coin by Muphrid
  • Recommended by starstuff99, Unclouded TJ, moberemk, Eliezer Yudkowsky, Brendan Rizzo, trekie140, ahiijny
  • Synopsis: In which the ever-enthusiastic brigade chief realizes her powers...thanks to the high price of a can of Coca-Cola. Complete.
  • Comments: "All her life, Haruhi's been searching–not just for espers or aliens but for others who want to find them, too. Now, she realizes her power to reshape the world...and that the people around her have never believed in something they didn't know to be true." A well-written story from Haruhi's point of view that believably explores a simple situation in which Haruhi might realize her powers. The story stays mainly light-hearted, although it does have its moments of drama. Definitely worth a read.
[[reviews:The Coin]]

In Your Dreams by Halbarad
  • Recommended by MadanEccles19, Unclouded TJ, Brendan Rizzo
  • Synopsis: Golden Week has arrived! While the rest of the SOS Brigade makes plans, Kyon is forced to go to a family reunion far out in the country—so Haruhi gives him an assignment: learning about lucid dreaming. Surely nothing unusual could come of that…
  • Comments: Co-authored by Halbarad and Durandall, so you know it's good!
[[reviews:In Your Dreams]]

An Esper Conversation by Frenschel Boo
  • Recommended by Nikesh
  • Synopsis: After the events of Vol. 11, Kyouko gets comfort from an unlikely person
  • Comments: You need to be familiar with what happened in the latest novels to truly enjoy this. A sweet little character study with some light Kyouko/Itsuki, but not enough to be considered a shipping fic.
[[reviews:An Esper Conversation]]

Taniguchi and Kunikida are Dead by Hcobb
  • Recommended by: Brendan Rizzo
  • Synopsis: How would the series be different if Sasaki had followed Kyon to North High?
  • Comments: One of the few AU fics to take the Butterfly Effect and run with it. Has shades of Ontological Mystery which in the end actually make sense.
[[reviews:Taniguchi and Kunikida are Dead]]

The Anagram of Suzumiya Kurumi by kurushi
  • Recommended by: Brendan Rizzo
  • Synopsis: "The trauma that I am talking about is that of my energetic, paranoid, manic, unstoppable mother, who taught me almost from the day of my birth about time travellers, ES Pers, aliens, magicians, yakuza, vengeful gods, and sliders."
  • Comments: The whole fic revolves around Time Travel, and very complex Time Travel at thatnote . The reader won't be able to figure out what's going on until the very end, but by then it's worth it.
[[reviews:The Anagram of Suzumiya Kurumi]]

The Setsubun of Suzumiya Haruki by Aebliss [[reviews:The Setsubun of Suzumiya Haruki]]

The Link Of Haruhi Suzumiya by Altes
  • Recommended by: Zeta42
  • Status: Ongoing.
  • Synopsis: Four months after the events, described in The Astonishment of Haruhi Suzumiya, the SOS Brigade is faced with the most bizarre and dangerous mystery they've dealt with so far. Starting with Ryoko Asakura's sudden return, it becomes apparent someone powerful is getting at our heroes. Can they stand together and go through the challenges thrown upon them? Find out in this new story!
  • Comments: While this fanfic is meant to be a continuation of the light novels, it's Darker and Edgier than the original series. Violence isn't shown much, but blood and gore during and after battles are described. Also contains mild swearing.
[[reviews:The Link of Haruhi Suzumiya]]

Choose Your Own Adventure by Mereo Flare
  • Recommended by: Flairina
  • Status: Complete.
  • Synopsis: But not really. Having all the power in the world might sound interesting for some people, but whether it's in Haruhi's hands or his own, it proves to be more trouble than it's worth for Kyon.
  • Comments: Short, but utterly hilarious.

One Thousand and Counting by Ergoemos
  • Recommended by: mysterykcad, Brendan Rizzo, ahiijny
  • Status: Technically complete, though the author has plans on continuing it.
  • Synopsis: What if it wasn't a simple act of homework that released the Brigade from their endless summer vacation? What if the end didn't come as years faded into decades into centuries? How can the brigade cope with the growing weight of time?
  • Comments: A somewhat dark story dealing with the psychological effects of the endless summer on the SOS Brigade members, as well as the lasting effects from their ordeal once they finally get free of it. Very well-written, with a large helping of Original Flavor.

Later by Durandall
  • Recommended by: Axem Titanium
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A Continuation fic set 15 years after a fateful event in which Kyon and Haruhi part ways. Kyon, in his mid thirties, is working as a simple gardener at the Tsuruya estate when Haruhi suddenly reenters his life.
  • Comments: The author seems to perfectly capture the Original Flavor of Kyon's snarky narration, as mellowed out by a decade and a half away from Haruhi. The characterization is spot on with believable development from the teenage incarnations and the author is brilliant in his restraint from overusing supernatural elements to drive the plot. The central mysteries of the story—how Kyon ended up where he is and what Haruhi is after now that she's found him—unfold at a tantalizing pace and the story delights in implying truths that will be made evident in chapters to come.

Make a Wish by Rassilon001
  • Recommended by roseunity
  • Synopsis: In this ‘Arabian Nights’ inspired tale, Kyon is a nobleman's son in the desert city of Adoptopolis, consigned to a life of boredom and duty with no adventure or magic in his life at all. But this all changed when one fateful day, on a whim, he purchased a seemingly ordinary oil lamp. Containing a very un-ordinary genie of phenomenal cosmic power... and a mischievous streak a mile wide. Because Haruhi refuses to indulge in 'boring' wishes.
  • Status: Completed

  • Synopsis: Kyon has been missing for months. A new disaster begins to develop. Will Haruhi learn what she really is? Where Kyon has been? And what does the strange man with the blue box has to do with all of this?
  • Comments: Now that it's Complete, along with the sequel, The Promise of Haruhi Suzumiya. The author is currently working on the third Sequel, Time After Time.

The Melancholy of Shinigami Ryuk by Rocke and Roll

The Melancholy of Rorschach by BobCat
  • Recommended by Looney Toons

[[reviews:The Melancholy of Rorschach]]

Demiglace Graffiti by ToastedPine
  • Recommended by Looney Toons
  • Synopsis: Haruhi Suzumiya and her father live lives almost entirely separate from each other — she, a schoolgirl with strange interests and enthusiasms, and he, a divorced architect who was once a martial artist from Nerima. As we learn how Ranma Saotome became Ranma Suzumiya, their two worlds begin to intersect, and each may discover that the other has far more weirdness in their lives than they previously thought.
[[reviews:Demiglace Graffiti]]

Kyon: Big Damn Hero by Durandall ( link, no new updates there)

  • Recommended by Sophie Fitz

[[reviews:The God I Once Knew]]

Suzumiya Haruhi No Index by Hyakimaru
  • Recommended by Ninmikey01
  • Synopsis: In a world where magic is governed by religion and science controls psychic powers, the SOS Brigade and the students of Academy City must work together to prevent a catastrophe. Said catastrophe is reality's destruction that would only be caused by the contact of the Imagine Breaker boy Touma and the Genki Girl Reality Warper Haruhi. Has its own page

The Cries Of Haruhi Suzumiya by Thnikkafan
  • Recommended by Yami No Izanagi, Vilui
  • Synopsis: In the small sleepy town of Hinamizawa, there have been a string of murders connected to the Watanagashi festival. This has piqued the interest of one Haruhi Suzumiya, who has decided to investigate it and bring the SOS Brigade with it. But things, naturally, are more than they seem...
  • Comments: The first two arcs are complete now. Original Flavor runs strong, and the Hinamizawa atmosphere is very prevalent. And believe me, you will want to see (or cringe horribly at the sight of) the SOS Brigade when put into the world of When They Cry. Has its own page

The Past Life of Haruhi Suzumiya by Emma Iveli
  • Recommended by The G
  • Pairing(s): Ichigo/Rukia, some Kyon(Kaien)/Haruhi moments
  • Synopsis: Crossover with Bleach. After an encounter with a Hollow, memories of Haruhi's past life as a certain hairpin-wearing busty babe begin to awaken, which leads to Kyon revealing to the SOS Brigade that he isn't an ordinary human after all and his name is not Kyon, his name is Kaien Kurosaki, the son of Ichigo and Rukia Kurosaki, and he decides to embrace his heritage and become a Shinigami, and soon the SOS Brigade have a new purpose, to join the everlasting fight against the Hollows and the fight against a newly revived Aizen.
[[reviews:The Past Life of Haruhi Suzumiya]]

Our Inevitable Fate by Durandall
  • Recommended by Madan Eccles 19
  • Synopsis: A three-way crossover, throwing our favorite club members into the trials of bokurano. MUCH more Haru/Higu-centric; bokurano is just used as a setting. Knowledge of Higurashi is good, bokurano is not required.
  • Comments: a very experimental piece and very good.
[[reviews:Our Inevitable Fate]]

Exciting Investigation of Eastern Mysteries by Nathan Huss
  • Recommended by 71TheRoman
  • Synopsis: After doing some research, Haruhi drags the rest of the SOS Brigade to a remote Shinto shrine said to be haunted by mysterious spirits, much to Kyon’s annoyance. After discovering too late the shrine has merely been abandoned, Haruhi nearly blows a fuse at the lack of anything to do…until the bizarre disappearance of Koizumi grabs everyone’s attention. If that weren’t enough, two college students suddenly show up, talking about some dream world called “Gensokyou”…
  • Comments: This is a good story, IMHO. Mr. Huss has thought things through very well, even employing his reader’s opinion on point-of-view ever now and then. The SOS-Dan are all in character with canon, and their interactions with the denizens of Gensokyo feel realistic and not forced in the slightest. It also doesn’t hurt that the personalities given to our beloved youkai are believable and multi-dimensional. Currently up to seven chapters, having just finished peeking at the “team-up” of everyone’s favorite Humanoid Interface and a certain puppeteer…and ready to catch up on the Reality Warper herself. Don't knock it unless you've tried it. Makes it a drag then that it hasn’t been updated in over half a year.

Imperfect Cherry Blossom by Supperdude9
  • Recommended by mysterykcad
  • Synopsis: A crossover between Haruhi Suzumiya and Touhou Project. During the events of Snow Mountain Syndrome, Kyon is spirited away to Gensokyo, and ends up getting wrapped up in the events of Perfect Cherry Blossom. Due to a number of factors, including manipulations by the Sky Canopy Dominion and getting a late start, the events of the Spring Snow Incident are much more serious than in the game. A second story arc is currently in progress in which Kyon and Nagato find themselves in Gensokyo for the events of Imperishable Night.
  • Comments: While the premise is simple, the author does an excellent job intertwining the two worlds. While most of the focus is on Gensokyo's cast, the story is told from Kyon's perspective, with a fair amount of Original Flavor. The cast of Gensokyo are multidimensional, and their interactions with Kyon are realistic and entertaining. There also seems to be a Myth Arc developing around the Sky Canopy Dominion's interference with events in Gensokyo. Thankfully, unlike the other Haruhi/Touhou crossover fic on this page, this story is updated fairly regularly.

How The Game Was Won by Arty d'Arc
  • Recommended by Sydin, O'Malley
  • Synopsis: Maybe that's why it happens. Why she steps closer, why he doesn't turn away. Why their lips, already wet with rain, meet to get wetter as tongues slip in. Maybe that's why they don't stop. A oneshot from Haruhi's point of view, reflecting on her relationship with Kyon after they've had sex for the first time. It delves into the complex relationship between the two yet keeps both of them, especially Haruhi, very much in character.
  • Pairing(s): Haruhi/Kyon
