So, uh, seriously folks, I really am wondering...

What was up with the paper plane? XD

Any real significance/ridiculous AP English symbolism or just something to mess with the fans that didn't know the ending yet?

I believe the term you are looking for is "red herring".

I actually prefer AP English symbolism to red herring myself. They mean the same thing.

But "AP English symbolism" can't be used for a character name in a cheesy spinoff of a popular TV series.

Here's my take on the paper plane, the plane is made of paper, and what also is done with paper that's important to the story, homework. I think that's the connection.

I think the fact that they ended each arc with Kyon getting no HW done was a big ass clue itself.

See, I don't think it was all about the homework itself, I think Kyon could have suggest anything that wasn't already on the list, for them all to do together, and it would have broken the loop. I think Haruhi just wanted to spend that last day with her friends doing anything.

Yeah, her body language at the diner on the last day gave me that impression as well.

The "I'm not doing anything tomorrow, but feel free to just sleep in. It's not like I was wanting to spend the rest of my summer with you guys..." each week was a bigger hint that the homework itself wasn't the important thing.

Bingo... she just didn't want to spend it alone.

Well, I'm sure there's at least one thing not on Haruhi's list that wouldn't have worked, but that's going dangerously into H territory.

I saw doujin that went that route, and for some reason it actually worked.

And, on top of that, perhaps she had a subconscious need for validation . . . that this band of slackers she drags around by the nose stick with her because they like her, and not just because she's dragging them around by the nose. So, deep down, she's thinking "Okay, if they/Kyon like/likes me, surely he/they'll suggest doing something together with me tomorrow. Right? Right? . . . aww fuck, they're just sitting there. WELL SCREW THEM! LET'S SEE HOW THEY LIKE IT WHEN I HIT THE RESET BUTTON!!!111"

That, or there's possibly something of an "Anything for my beloved" thing going on, since she knows Kyon's a big fat slacker, and she's giving him a chance to finish what he needs to finish for the summer. All of this is subconscious, of course,

Now you're just making her sound petty.
