Skynet is practically Kyon's span book
and as such, it appears every time he takes notes for time-traveling
About that, I'm curious if Kyon is going to spend the whole weekend in Hinamizawa and then redo it in Nishinomiya or if instead he is going to do it in a day-to-day basis or something. The former has the advantage of requiring just one time leap and makes easier for Kyon to keep track of the things he has to do, but the latter sounds more interesting to the reader.
Alternatively, the story could follow the events as chronologically as possible (objective time), switching between scenes in Nishinomiya and Hinamizawa, but I suspect that said approach is a lot more difficult to outline and write.
Re. Driving lessons.
Now that I think about it, I wonder what would Yuuto think of the Car Chase
if he learns about it. First, I will try to make a few (hopefully educated) guesses:
Kyon apparently will drive a car (maybe Yuuto's) without a license (and after one or two driving lessons, tops) in pursuit of the yaks who will kidnap Sasaki. If Haruhi is present, then perhaps she will help him with her Mind over Matter
powers to achieve otherwise difficult (or flat out impossible) maneuvers. And after recovering Sasaki, the three of them will probably need to evade the police, that likely will be attracted by the commotion, to avoid questioning.
If the above ends happening and Yuuto finds out, I think he will have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, such an incident exemplifies the kind of dangerous stuff Kyon and his friends are up to, "occupational hazards" so to speak. On the other hand, it's the kind of crazy stunt you have
to berate your underage son for, not only because it's illegal but also because it's a very stupid thing to do without the proper training (which Kyon lacks, according Yuuto's PoV).
For some reason, I picture Yuuto telling Kyon something along the lines of:
|Yuuto|| : ||OK, now if you must do things like that because of... your job, then I suppose it would be better if I teach you the right way to do it. Don't get the wrong idea, this is not a reward. No matter what path you walk in live, your responsibility will always be to return home in one piece, either here with us or with Tsuruya-chan not that far in the future.|
|Kyon|| : ||*bows* I understand father.|
|Yuuto|| : ||However...|
|Kyon|| : ||?|
|Yuuto|| : ||One condition, your mother NEVER have to know about this.|
|Kyon|| : ||...... You Can Say That Again.|
@Specular: Sasaki was surprised for the sun lowering down so for her it must be still morning.
I interpreted that line as Sasaki mixing up west and east. I mean, for her it was morning just a moment ago, so if the sun is low on the horizon in one direction (azimuth), said direction has to be roughly the east.
Re. Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated
: IMO, it would be amazing if Ryouko gets her old body back to derail Miyuki's efforts.
But now you mention it, I wonder what kind of story she could come up with to explain her sudden departure and even more sudden return.*
(Re-2) Club Meeting: Koizumi and Kyouko now dating; Kuyou Suou joins the SOS Brigade
That's not entirely correct. Kuyou joined the Brigade as early as SB-5. In Re-2, her Relationship Upgrade
with Kyon was what was officially recognized. How about "SOS Brigade welcomes Kuyou to the Big Damn Harem", "Kuyou's Relationship Upgrade is now official" or something of the sort?
Notice: I put "pit trap" in Title Case. I forgot it was a trope
"It's 'fine'?" Haruhi asked. "It— Well, hmm...." She settled back into her seat, crossing her arms over her chest as she contemplated. "We can't let this grow out of hand, you know, since we're all struggling with figuring out how to get enough Kyon-time as it is. But then again ... she's been trying to find you for almost four years at this point, right?"
Something I didn't notice before: "Kyon-time" is now a thing, a Haruhi-sanctioned term
