I agree on removing the natter, though extricating it from the discussion on who wrote what might be beyond any of us...
My favourite moments?
Awesome - Dynamic Entry #2. Falling through glass suspended in the air wearing a Badass Longcoat and with a hostage? Brilliant.
Heartwarming - The boardgames.
Funny - Haruhi's first declaration she wanted to take Kanae home with her.
Fetish Fuel? How's that a moment? Eh, I haven't been paying attention to any of that... but the ability to squeeze an entire YEAR into a few seconds could have some... interesting effects. Yuki seems to have worked that out.
Out of curiosity, can anyone think of a better way to describe this? We're still using my original description and that's... bad. Especially with all the things added on.

Quotes. Haven't seen quote boxes like that for ages. Not on this forum, this is the first time I've come on here...
But I got sidetracked.
What I meant is that extricating the natter from the guess on who wrote which of the quotes at the beginning of each chapter would be confusing. I'm not good at clarity.
'This' being Kyon: Big Damn Hero. I don't feel that the description does something of this magnitude justice. I was half-expecting the page to be ignored and certainly expecting the description to be changed... but it's still in use, with several additions.
(Look up the "Show Markup Help" at the top left. Everything should be there, and most if not all of it works in the rest of the wiki, too.)
Well, I admit that the article description could use some expansion, but there's nothing actually wrong with it for now beyond being a relative understatement.

Oh, I didn't want to use one. I just haven't seen any for ages. Concentration isn't my best ability.
Understatement may be better, but calling that an understatement is an understatement in itself. And now I'm overusing the word understatement.
Hmmm... I've wondered how Kyon would react if Haruhi were to learn about her powers after seeing the series. Would I be correct to assume that he's The Kid with the Leash in this particular fan series?
^ This isn't the Haruhi Suzumiya thread. This is a thread for a Haruhi Suzumiya Fan Fic, by the name of Kyon: Big Damn Hero (link at the top). Pay attention to the OP; it has the word fanfic in the very first line.

At the beginning maybe but Character Development and plot make that less of a case a few chapters in. It's actually handled quite well and very Genre Savvy.
I LOVE THIS.
I LOVE IT SO MUCH I DOUBLEPOSTED.

Meh, and me not in range of a good internet connection this week. *makes a Kyon-facepalm*
Not me at least. *reads the No-Sell part on the K:BDH main page* *HSQ skyrockets*

I'm sorry, perhaps you missed the "in this particular fan series" in my post.

Phone-posting isn't fun.
Awesome: Haruhi's Bavarian Fire Drill, she even managed to get Watanabe and Yamane in. She may have powers but she doesn't need them.
Funny: Koizumi's reaction to Haruhi's emotions when ple was kissing Kyon, as Tsuruya can confirm.
Heartwarming: a lot to choose from... Either Mikuru's mail to Kyon, implicitly forgiving him; or Mikuru(big)'s "World of Cardboard" Speech and her whole meeting that day, foreshadowing how the ...time limit :-[ relationships between members will end, Nakama and polyamorous.
Bonus: Biggest shock/surprise: when Haruhi first considered the Tenchi Solution as a real possibility.

Awesome: By character.
I'll give the rest once I actually get around to them.
@Filraen: Fridge Brilliance, huh? I actually guessed it immediately once I got to the part where Haruhi told Koizumi to use his ESP. I was thinking "Uh, Haruhi, he needs Closed Spa- Wait, what am I thinking? This is Haruhi! She'll just ignore that limitation. "
^^ I didn't know that fanfics are also referred to as "fan series". "Fan series" is not only too vague, it also implies that you're talking about a fanfic franchise, because that's the only way I've ever saw the term "series" being used in fanfic community.

I have a different theory: Yuki unlocked Koizumi's ESP for use outside Closed Space. How she could know that exactly? Reading Haruhi's memetic link.
The thing that worries of about the No Sell theory is it implies Yuki can't control Haruhi's power completely.
edited 16th Sep '10 3:25:14 PM by Filraen
^ Of course Yuki can't control it completely; otherwise, the Closed Spaces in early chapters wouldn't have manifested in the first place, and Haruhi wouldn't be able to apply her Neuro-Vault Memory Gambit on her own, while trapped in a Closed Space that is completely isolated from the "real world" in which Yuki is still located.
And technically speaking, your proposed interpretation still equates to "No-Sell by Haruhi" * Yuki is not a Physical God Reality Warper on her own; she has to "burrow" Haruhi's powers first. She still has de facto Story-Breaker Power, though, just on a much lower level than Haruhi's.; she just relegates the actual execution process to Yuki with Kyon's permission, and Kyon already gave Yuki express permission to disregard anything that she believes is bad in Chapter 2. It's not unreasonable that she inferred from that permission that she also has permission to execute any order/wish/"programme" that she deems to be necessary now (like a life-or-death situation) without waiting for Kyon's actual permission.
Yuki: "Thank you."

Love this fanfic so much!
My favourite line so far is one of Koizumi's, oddly enough, just because it's exactly what I would have said in his position (I was thinking it at the moment I read it, which made be fall off my chair with laughter. My brother now thinks I'm crazy).
From Chapter 26:

Saw that on the WMG page. It does seem a little incomplete (Kyon DOES have one more weapon) but I have no idea about a suitable name for the beam sabre. Hmmm...
I got to say I do like the idea of Kyon naming a weapon after Alta´r as it also ties into the site with the Grand Unifying Guesses.
^^^^ That's because I believe Haruhi destroyed Closed Space but didn't change Koizumi's ESP. Since he needs to be in one to use his powers he was effectively depowered.
edited 18th Sep '10 10:40:11 AM by Filraen
^ Closed Space does not even exist until Haruhi's frustration and/or boredom subconsciously generate them; they're currently only absent because Haruhi's frustration/boredom hasn't hit high enough levels required for their generation, though that may change in the future.
The bottom line is, the notion that her Neuro-Vault Memory Gambit resulted in their destruction is meaningless, because you cannot destroy what does not (currently) exist. They are a result of Haruhi's lack of effective control on her Reality Warping power combined with that same power being intrinsically affected by her general mental state (does that count as a form of Psychoactive Powers?).
Oh, and "destroying Closed Space" is basically what the Kyon, Koizumi, Mikuru and Yuki had done several times in the past whenever a Closed Space manifested - by destroying the Shinjin that simultaneously manifests within it.
edited 18th Sep '10 10:51:22 AM by MarqFJA
I thought that Haruhi effectively made it so that Closed Space could never again form?
As for the Memory Gambit... has anyone worked out why she did that, yet? I can't work out what the hell it's meant to be implying from the trope/K:BDH pages...
You just answered your own question: The Memory Gambit was to prevent Closed Space from manifesting again every time Haruhi's frustration/boredom hits critical mass, specifically because:
Okay,hands up who found Yuki's first kiss in ch. 13 really, really sexy? 'Cause I did.
