Utterly wrong. There's a lot of hints towards future plotlines, especially in that last scene.

Don't stop thinking.

Both.

Huh. When you say mindfuck, I am reminded of Green Day's "American Idiot". Hey, the color green appears.

You mean the "Love" scene? Hoo boy. That does not bode well for Kyon.

By the way, who's supposed to be the main antagonist for Cooperation Route, since it can't be Kyon (or can it )? Or is there even any?

Kyon is not the main antagonist for CoOp. It doesn't have a "real" main antagonist, since it's largely about the brigades as a whole, not just Kyon/Kyonko.

This, of course, doesn't preclude him from being the main antagonist in some other route.

The phrase "What is true for one is true for the other" means much more for the Kyons and the Suzumiyas than it does for any of the other characters. For in their case, what is true for Kyon, is true for Kyonko, is true for Haruhi, is true for Haruki, is true for Kyon.

In other words, instead of just a pair, its a Square.
I believe it is one of the themes of this story. Kyon and Haruhi are, after all, very similar, despite apparing to be oposite. This is clear in the novel, specially after Vol. 4 and 9. Because of that, in the end Kyonko and Haruki also ends up being weid alternate version of Haruhi and Kyon respectively.

Btw, while I could see similarity between Kyonko and Haruhi, I've neverseen between the men. Until anime version of Endless Eight. I laught a lot bat then. It is more amusing that the scenes is the same in the novel, but Kyon was denying (he said he was definitively not yelling. ).

Really? You are repeating Kyon-chan and Haruki are meant to be silimilar to Haruhi and Kyon, respectively, since the begining. I am ashamed I haven't picked the square thing.

Ah, don't get me wrong. I meat itis impossible nitpick somethig because it is all meant to be crazy. There is no 'OOC' and no 'inconsistency' in scenes like that, so I can't 'complain'.

Less than three, beyond being the way to draw a heart in Ascii, has become a common way of vocally expressing the same thing (hence the song "Less Than Three" by Becky (warning, it's not quiet, even before you start the actual video)).

Anyways... rape is love... hmm... this'll be... umm... interesting. Yes, interesting is the word I'll use here.

Actually I have already read them, and even viewed that image. I'm just thinking about alternate meanings for the color, that's all. Sorry if I didn't catch on fast enough.

Ah.

Well, green is the color of jealousy, if that helps.

That's just what I'm saying, man. It's not all meant to be crazy.

Hmm? The entire scene is Kyon hallucinating and assalting Kyonko, and you say it is not crazy?

I know that, in a way, it is not as crazy as the others Flashes in Space scenes, as half of it is actually happening. What I am saying, however, is that normal logic do not apply there.

I mean, what could I say? That is OOC Kyon assalt Kyonko? I may argue that not even Haruki would actually do that, so Kyon shouldn't since he is possessed by him. But that don't really seen right. It is not like Kyon have become Haruki, he is not really talking like him or thinking like him. It is more like a weird extrame parody of Haruki. On drugs.

So, if normal logic do not apply, I can not tell what is 'wrong', 'irreal' or, obviously, 'unlogic'. I can only read and try to understand it.

PP:
In a side not, while looking in wikipedia for other meanings of 'green', I discovered japanese didn't had a word for green in the past. They used 'ao' (blue) insted the current 'midori' (green). For exemple, 'fresh leaves' is 'aoba', litterally 'blue leaves' (of course it meant to be 'green leaves'). Interesting huh?

PPP:
Other meanings of green apparently include: resurrection and immortality in Ancient Egypt; love and lust in medieval period; prospery in where money is green (like, you know, US) and, the most interesting witchcraft and other evil things (decay, toxicity, etc) in early English folklore.

Isn't it?

I missed some important meanings, btw. Apparently in heraldry green (vert) is a symbol of "jolliness and youth, but also of beauty and shame" (lol ) and 'death'.

It is also the symbolic color of environmentalism (not that I need to tell you, of course).

The technical term for what green represents is envy.... Its also the wavelength of color that chlorophyll absorbs the least (or reflects most), hence green plants.

Don't forget the obvious connection to the nature.

Green is a colour for all seasons, really...

But, in my opinon, what we have here is little more than a Green Eyed Monster.

Sorry. I just write things that are awesome. Speaking of which.

Spoiler for September the Sixth, Day 5, Kyonko: Flashes in Space- Memories in Pieces (MYSELF):


I stuck a Cabaret reference in there, by the way.

Please enjoy this and the previous scene. I hope to have finished the Kyonko path by tomorrow, but I make no promises.
Are you implying time loops are the result of Haruki save scumming the Kyonko route, or the player himself?

I am a little sad that the line "Ponytails turn me on." failed to make it in there. Imagine Kyonko being fed that line by a crazed Kyon.
You know, I'd like to suggest a path where Kyon has his head shrinked as a result these psychotic episodes. I'll suggest he has a troubled face at school, then gets pulled into a session by Tsuruya playing amatuer psychiatrist. She'll pull terms on him like the Ganzfeld effect or Misattribution; but will feel that she's making fun of him when she starts talking about Freudian adolescent sexual confusion, soulmates, reincarnation, or even information tranfer by juxtaposition in quantum symmetry. Especially since she keeps laughing. He leaves when she tries to make him take an inkblot test she made with the ink and paper for calligraphy club.

Finally, I must congratulate you on a job well done. Writing six flavours of madness, and the response has been pretty good for every one of them. I don't think anyone is looking forward to the scenes where things make sense anymore.

I find it interesting that the thread can derail so quickly...but then I ain't seen nuthin' yet.

C'mon, green? Nature, nature, nature. Meh. And money.

Kaisos, everyone's waiting for the co-operation route! Quickly!

Just because you don't see it, doesn't mean it's not happening.
