Although the thought of making out with a gender-bent version of yourself is a bit, y'know, mind-boggling

Always know where your towel is, eh?

I kind of always thought that the boat thing was because they no longer had oceans in Mikuru's time.

She's the main heroine... they're going to end up doing a lot more than kissing, believe me.


Anyway, new scene.

Seriously a wonderful analogy!

So now we see that Kyonko = Kyon - Aversion to violence - Height + Sarcasm + Snarkiness + Bravery.

Kyon just got owned by his gender-bent self

Selfcest is fun!
Just so you know, I support all selfcest pairings.

I think it was Mikuru (big) in Book 4 when she talked about the TTPD...
or was it Book 7?

Wait, I thought he said there was. Like, at the start of Remote Island Syndrome.
Now you know how broken I am. At least by Haruhi.

And since when did selfcest=stealing from yourself?
Ok, I admit that sounds a bit wrong....

No I won't mug myself.
But putting myself in Kyonko's situation, if I had been sleeping 2 days in the streets with stomach pangs that pierced the heavens and some guy who was actually me agreed to help (albeit without telling him which train station) walked out on me, I would.

And I would enjoy it.

Self-cest and mugging yourself is two different levels of wrong, my friend. Clearly, we have different views on that

I would just take it that I'm 'borrowing' money from my alternate self. Hey, technically we're the same person, right?

sorry for double posting (and way too many posts for the last few pages),
but if there's going to be something happening with Kyon and Kyonko, WHAT IF HARUKI OR HARUHI FOUND OUT?

anyways, sorry. I'll be taking a short vacation from posting to make up.

EDIT: forget the double post

Oh come on.

It'd be interesting at the very least to see if you did exactly the same thing at exactly the same time.

Or did what the other wanted you to. XD

Ekhem... According to TV Tropes there is high probability she would be hot as hell. I might feel tempted to experiment a bit. Since she would be reasonably similar to me, she might want to try it as well. Once. And never talk about it again.

Score for Kyon! I half-expected Kyonko to retort "And that unreasonable woman you mentioned is your girlfriend, yes?"

Hmm, this scene was weird. The normal path (i.e. the one in which you are not a jerk) is normal. Kyonko is a bit too tsundereish but I can understand her bad mood. And it is only natural eventually realizing how much of a jerk she was being and how nice Kyon was.

But the other option was a bit weird. Starting with Kyon passing off from a book on his head. It shouldn't be that easy. The book is heavy, but Kyonko is not that strong. And what happened to Kyon miraculous evading skills?

The weirdest part is Kyonko mugging him, however. Actually, I believe it wasn't the case. She probably just leave he unconcious there and went 'home'. Then some random delinquent saw the oportunity and rob the guy. I really don't believe Kyonko would be that much of a jerk. Stealing a bit of money to eat? Maybe. Dragging him to an alley and just leave he there? Unlikely.

Actually, reading again, Kyon also don't believe she would be able to drag him. He tought it was Haruki (the 'friend' form erlier), but we know it wasn't. I found unlikely any other member of the Brigade would do that as well.

Nah. Kyon is just as snarky and brave as Kyonko. He is not as sarcastic, but he had never been sleeping in streets in another world. Kyon can also be violent when he is really pissed. But I guess being a girl in anime wolrd give you the right to be violent to any guy.

No. Nor I think Kyonko would. Remember, she couldn't have dragged Kyon to the alley, and you know Haruki didn't helped.

Haruki would probably be so joyful he found Kyonko he wouldn't mind. Or maybe he would try to 'impress' her summoning shinjis to beat Kyon or something. You should read the old scenes, btw.

For Haruhi, well, I guess this is bound to happen. She will not be happy.

By the way, I didn't get at all the pun.

Nice scene Kaisos. Though I don't think Kyonko would have the strength to throw a heavy text. Then again, it could be 1337 adrenaline P0WUHZ from being angry.

Especially if that guy happens to be one you like.

It has to deal with "pangs" you get in your stomach when you're hungry. A synonym would be "stomach pains" but pangs is the correct term.
Haha.
I love bad puns.

There are some good puns... it's just that the bad ones are more prevalent.

Big, huge history text. Kyon can't dodge EVERYTHING, he's not Vino.

Kyonko doesn't really consider Kyon to be a human being yet... most of the time, she seems him as just another aspect of herself, which is why it's okay to steal from him, like someone else said.

And it was Yuuki and Mitsuuru who dragged him into the alleyway. Mitsuuru's idea.

Kyonko, as a tsundere, is surprisingly strong when angry.
