Whether Haruhi's powers work or not could only be tested by taking Kanae, Haruhi, and Yuki to another world and checking, before using the anchor to drag them back. If they still function and the previous world isn't oddly destroyed... well, see below.
Imagine if the Haruhi cast ended up in, say, Evangelion. Pretty clear idea of what to do there.
Well, panic first, then try and help, then run before everyone tries to kill you...
There's no Time Travel problems, necessarily. Depends how much they can proof themselves against any possible repercussions from causing paradoxes.
And... should they do something? Well, they can always see if things will improve due to having time travel handy. If they don't, probably best to try and help. Better than leaving countless worlds dead.
Also, by 'improve' I meant 'leave things slightly better than they were'. Or, if they end up wandering around things that they recognise as fiction, try and avoid any senseless plot deaths.
Like ending up in a Code Geass
world and preventing the Euphremia massacre. Still have to deal with Charles but at least millions of people aren't dying for no good reason. And no-one nukes any capital cities
Goal: help if at all possible and hang around to deal with unforeseen consequences. Not so bad.
Anyway, possible reconstruction over.
Err... how does that moral relate to the quote? Seems more like 'Nakama
before everyone else'... which is hardly surprising.
Oh, right, forgot what the Dilemma was
. Oops. Ah, Sadistic Choices
... forcibly alter millions, or leave them as they are and leave so many more dead
. If you're playing around on large
And to be honest, that shouldn't be a problem with things like Evangelion. Either the world is going to go wrong whatever you do or you can spare humanity a lot of psychological trauma.
And stopping Lelouch going trigger-happy in Code Geass
probably wouldn't offend anyone.
