Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.The Faltering of Haruhi Suzumiya by Newbi
Synopis The Vacillation of Haruhi Suzumiya: Whether it's between normalcy and adventure or love and your career, making choices is tough. Unfortunately for Kyon, when the person with the difficult choice is a god, sometimes the solution isn't so convenient.
Synopsis: Where the events in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (and likely other books) are actually products of a grieving Haruhi after the death of her childhood friend Kyon. She reflects on trips to a therapist, which inspire her to write the stories in an effort to keep his memory alive.
Synopsis: An AU story; Yuki is a human Gadgeteer Genius who lives alone, and, having no friends, constructs a robotic Ryoko for company. Unfortunately, once she makes real friends, Ryoko reveals her truecolors...
Synopsis: Kyon's father has been transferred away for his job, and Kyon must move away. However, soon an opportunity comes up for him to stay and continue interacting with the SOS Brigade: He can stay with Haruhi. But, not only does this mean Kyon will live in the same house as our favourite hyperactive reality warper, he will also be staying with her parents: the sweet but spacy (and relatively eccentric) Naru and the absolute jerk Oruki.
Synopis: Set in an alternate universe where Haruhi and Kyon are dating after the events of book 9. One day, Haruhi realizes that she wants to find John Smith, and as a result, she breaks up with Kyon. A heartbroken Kyon is forced to realize that he must choose between his and Haruhi's happiness, and the safety of the world.
Synopsis: On what seemed to be an ordinary morning for Kyon, a small girl just had to suddenly appear in his bedroom to stir things up... Not to mention she claims Kyon is her father with plenty of proof to back her up. All Kyon can hope to do is send her back home, but if he's her father... who's her mother?
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? He realizes too late that a strongly atheist Haruhi would be just as dangerous; what would happen if God began to believe that she didn't exist? In the end, Kyon has to make a decision... (Includes Kyon x Haruhi.)
Synopsis: Why's everyone acting so strange? Nagato's showing emotions like any other high school girl. Koizumi punched Kyon right in the face! And Haruhi made Kyon her boyfriend! What could be the meaning behind all of this? And why can Kyon suddenly beat everyone at arm-wrestling? Kyon seeks to unravel the truth behind this bizarre turn of events, and finds a surprising answer.
Synopsis: What if a mysterious carnival appeared overnight in the city? Well, Haruhi and Co. would clearly rush off to see it at once right? Until things start to get a little strange, and Kyon gets sent to save the world once again...although not necessarily from who you might expect.
Synopsis: What if Kyon didn't survive Ryoko's attempt on his life? One little day, one little death, and everything starts to unravel. A oneshot darkfic exploring exactly how important Kyon actually is to the continued function of the brigade.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 In fact, the story is so complex that it is difficult to give it a good synopsis here. The reader won't be able to figure out what's going on until the very end, but by then it's worth it.
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.
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.
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?
Synopsis: After being "killed" by Dr. Manhattan in 1985, Rorschach wakes up in 2005, in a world with a different history from the one he remembers. Seeking a cause, he follows a suggestion by this world's Dr. Manhattan and investigates a schoolgirl in Japan.
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.
Synopsis: To quote its own summary: 'A Tvtropes website/Haruhi crossover. Kyon with a beam saber. Haruhi aware of her powers. Beware the unsubtle harem plot.' Also contains time-travel, yakuza, epic fight scenes, and crosses over with Higurashi. Has its own page.
Synopsis: This fiction takes Yuri Nakamura directly from the conclusion of the Angel Beats! anime to the universe where her Expy counterpart reigns supreme. Eventually Yuri discovers that she has personal business with several of the main characters from the Haruhi universe...
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
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...
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.
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.
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.
Synopsis: A crossover between The Melancholy of 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.
Synopsis: Ever since December 18th, Yuki's been having serious problems related to her "erroneous data". Who else can she turn to for comfort but Kyon? And with that, events are set into motion that will irreparably alter the SOS Brigade's world.
Synopsis: This fiction takes place on the same point as the dimensional split that occurred in the ninth light novel. The one who calls Kyon is Yuki Nagato as opposed to the two in the canon. As suggested in the pairing tab, Kyon and Yuki progressively establish a romantic relationship, but it turns out that just a bit more happens in-between...
Synopsis: Ryoko Asakura returns (officially, but presumably not from Canada), reprogrammed, restricted and under Kyon's control, the only reason why he doesn't completely freak out over this. as Ryoko expresses greater interests in humans in general and Kyon especially, Haruhi tries to unravel the mysteries of her dis- and reappearance while she starts to see Asakura as a romantic threat.
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.
Synopsis: What a piece of work is man. How noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god! A oneshot from Kyon's point of view detailing an intimate moment in the club room with Haruhi.
