Re. NSFW pics. I would like to know the precise reasons behind the prohibition. If the objective is to prevent search engines from finding links to NSFW content within the site, then the simple measure of not creating a link in the first place should be enough. Avoiding the prefix http:// in the case of a pure-text address helps too. A Content Warning in the case of NSFW material is a must, though. For example, something like this: This picture (tiny.cc/9t6nlw) reminds me a lot of K:BDH.

Re: Wham Line. I think it was brought up mentioned a few pages ago. IMO, it doesn't count as a Wham Line because there was enough Foreshadowing in the previous chapters. Then again, that could be only me who got that impression. You know, I have this slight tendency to overthink things .
Random thoughts. Do you think the Brigade is going to honor one of the noble traditions of the "after-school club" and engage in an over-the-top game a la "'life-or-death' squirt-gun battle" during their trip to Hinamizawa?* Considering the capabilities of the Brigade's members, something like the above could become quite a sight to behold, especially to Kyon's extended family. Mikuru would be in a serious disadvantage as a player, though. Maybe if the play a "Protect the VIP" scenario with her and someone else (Sasaki?) as the VIPs? Now I think about it, a more serious form of these games could help Haruhi to become more efficient with the use of the limited version her powers. I mean, even if Haruhi has the benefit of being an Instant Expert, her combat performance during the Resonance Cascade chapters was poor due to lack of experience and she can't acquire it with the Hyperbolic Time Chamber because Yuki can't bring her with them to the daily trainings. For example, I'm picturing something like a laser tag mock battle between Haruhi and Kyon with their energy powers/weapons set at the lowest (let's call it "in'tar mode" in the latter's case)... Maybe I should stop reading Stargate's wikis for a while.
Random picture. Yakuza-ish!Haruhi.

|Kyon||:||Really? Who was the first?|

@Grahf: I could be mistaken but I think Mikuru in the first picture◊ looks more like her older self in her second attempt to disguise herself as a teacher because of the white chalk stick in her right hand. About that, do you think Kyon would approve having Mikuru as his private tutor? Who knows, maybe there is yet another Stable Time Loop in there . IINM, the cosplay of the second pic◊ is from the main character of DNAČ. Funny considering that said character is a Time Police agent sent to the past to prevent Allergic to Love Unlucky Everydude from becoming The Pornomancer and causing overpopulation problems in the future. Seriously.
Notice: I added anchors (see "Special markup" section) in the Characters' page for easier linking: Kyon, Haruhi, Yuki, Mikuru, Koizumi, Tsuruya, Kanae, Ryouko, Kuyou, Nonoko, Sasaki, Fujiwara, Kyouko, Kenshiro, Aida, Kasai, Shinobu, Sakura, Mori, Hinamizawa, Kitago, Combine, Wataru, IDSE, Miyuki, Fujiya and Miyoko. I hope that eventually the system will be set to avoid making a Red Link of these Pot Holes.
