@Rainy Daze: Maybe if "Kyonko" becomes too important, then putting her on a bus
would no longer be a viable option.
It's kind of difficult to think of a situation where Kyon hologuised
as Kyonko would be more practical or safe than using throw-away disguises or just turning on the Invisibility Cloak
(especially considering Japanese Pronouns
and Body Language
), except if he needs to enact the role for some reason and, of course, Rule of Funny
I gave some thought to the possibility and after a while I arrived to this crackpot idea:
One reason for a recurring hologuise could be because Kyon is becoming too influential and therefore too restricted. Just think about it: To a Yakuza
Kyon represents the Tsuruya-tachi
, to Tachibana & Co. he is an ally of the Organization, to Fujiwara he is working for the Swarm
, to Miyuki he is a person of interest
, to Koizumi's Organization he speaks for Haruhi
Kyon has a very
little room for mistakes, e.g. if he is seen negotiating with someone of the Sumiyoshi-rengo without the prior approval of the Tsuruya-tachi (maybe for something more beneficial to the SOS Brigade than to the Tsuruya-tachi), they will get suspicious of a double-cross or if he makes a deal with Takahashi for Sasaki's safety then many of members of the Organization will grow more apprehensive of his actions.
The idea is Kyon impersonating his own "deniable spokesman/liaison/negotiator" of sorts, someone who can speak to the enemies of his allies without compromising his "official" position. Of course it doesn't have to be specifically a disguise of Kyonko
, I personally think that an Older Alter Ego
would be better, but for that the First Law of Gender-Bending
exists. It starts as a joke or mistake and then it has to stay for any
other reason. By the way, I don't know why I think that Asakura as Kyonko's bodyguard would be awesome in this situation (Nagato can't be away from the rest of the brigade for too long and Kyon absences are easy to explain).
I think Kyon would be still vulnerable to the Second Law of Gender Bending
thanks to his predilection
for ponytails. Bonus points if Koizumi or Taniguchi find Kyonko attractive.
I have to ask, why is it so easy to cobble together crazy theories for K:BDH? I doesn't happen with any other story in my case.
