Sorry . That's usually how my first posts in forums look like. I do tend to relax in some time, but I'll (most likely) partially keep that style. I think it's a personality thing, though I'm not absolutely sure.

But I guess I've introduced myself well enough, once I've expressed my gratefulness for the compliments on the pic. I obviously have a way too biased point of view to be able to tell how my own drawing is, so it always makes me overly delighted if someone actually likes it. So thank you very much.

Right, I've introduced myself enough now (I'm sorry, I always manage to make it a bit long). I'll try to be of some use, and produce an opinion.

I've ended up a bit confused on the current situation with the Computer Club (I've read many, many pages in a row, so it's more than likely that I've missed something). I'm not sure if it's on-going anymore, but at least a while back there was a discussion on whether or not their genders should be swapped as well. And just in case it isn't, I'll mention that I side with making them all girls.

Obviously, I do understand that the computer-stealing scene will be rather hard to rewrite if the club members are all girls, but the version I already saw posted here did it well, in my opinion. Either way, the reason I brought this up was that I, just like many others here, think that the genderbending should apply to everyone, even to the most minor characters (just like it has been done with the aunt/uncle who "named" Kyon/Kyonko). I think that'll make it as interesting as possible.

Then again, I still don't know whether that has already been decided or not… But at least I got an opinion out, to prove that I do have some, at the very least .

Oh, and…

Well, this is an "interesting" project going on. Just a question: how will Valentine's Day work out?

Right now I'm having Itsuko pick her up in a mysterious taxi, and then they'll have the slightly-altered conversation that Kyon and Itsuki have after Mikuru had told Kyon about her time-travelling. So basically, instead of the order of revelations being Yuki, Mikuru, then Itsuki, now it's Yuuki, Itsuko, then Mitsuru.

The other option I could think of was for Yuuki to escort Kyonko back home, which would imply that he knows about gentlemanly behaviour to do this at least, as well as any attempts at conversation Kyonko might make during the walk back (which would take twenty minutes while cycling).
I'd go with Yuuki escorting Kyonko back. It seems to soon to have Itsuki talk to Kyonko on this subject. It would make things to rushed.

I'm a lousy writer so use this as a guideline if you like or ignore them if you wish.
That's a good idea.

He thens proceeds to persuade her to join him on chasing down some sort of weird rumor (maybe about aliens appearing at this late time or something) and promises to escort her back home when she resists his initial persuasions.
Seems like to big a of a coincidence.

We are trying to follow the basic out line of the novel, with accommodation's for Gender changes. I think this is a relatively minor thing that overall would add greatly to the atmosphere.

Well realistically speaking, Kyon/Kyonko is probably under constant 24 hour surveillance (In all likelihood, the phone was probably bugged, and hidden camera's set up in the main rooms in the middle of the night).

Think about it, he/she is the chosen one of a God like entity, who's stability joined at the hip with the stability of the world. We don't know exactly what the organization is, but I get a feeling their group goes far beyond the Espers, and has allot of influence in government. The other members of the Organization that we meet on the Lone Island Syndrome story line are all probably involved in military intelligence.

The Organization probably has a covert team of secret agents constantly monitoring Kyon/ko, and probably had a car following her covertly.

This brings up another interesting idea. What if Yuuki originally sent the message asking to meet her via that note in the book, was so that the other groups wouldn't know about it till the last moment?

Those are a little bit high on the speculation meter. We can't say any of that is for certain, and we don't want to overstep anything with regard to what's been revealed in the original novels themselves.

Good secret agents wouldn't be spotted by an untrained high schooler. Said untrained highschooler is our only POV in the series.

I consider the fact that it only took a minute or two for the Organizations agents to pick up Kyon and track dawn the Anti SOS dan car after they had kidnapped the future time traveling Mikuru a pretty good indication that the Organization keeps track of the Main Characters off screen, and has their agents on standby in case of emergencies.

This kind of stuff isn't something I think should be detailed in the novel, but at the same time It wouldn't surprise me at all if it was actually happening. I just find it improbable that a secret organization wouldn't keep track of their VIP's.

Here's that drawing I promised yesterday.



Yeah, I'm not great at drawing tiny-and-cute when I'm working off a real life reference photo, so I went for sarcastic instead. xD I imagine this as the fiftieth time Haruki's done this, when Kyon-chan has realized that getting angry and struggling is futile and the only option left is complaining.

Please do.

I'm almost finished another part.

I keep telling myself, "just keep working and you can go play Clannad or Kingdom Hearts, just keep working, just keep working."

I dunno how you do that. I find it so difficult to concentrate on re-editing because I just want to draw NOW!

Anyway, /me gets to work.

"Dear diary,

Itsuko is really beginning to bother me. What exactly is she doing with Haruki when I'm not looking? Considering what Haruki would have done to me if I didn't threaten sexual harassment, that pushover would totally let Haruki do whatever. I hope he doesn't impregnate her.

I think Yuuki-kun has been reading too many science fiction novels lately. He actually believes that he is an alien! I think that he seriously needs a girlfriend.

Speaking of girlfriend, Minoru-kun, I'm still available! Why can't he seem to understand my feeling, diary? You are the only one who understands me.

Sincerely
Kyon-ko


(Sorry if I took liberties with names. These diary entries are just fun to write. ^_^)

(I see you're still sticking to Minoru. I can't shake Shiraishi out of my head every time that name's brought up. Remember that Mitsuru is a cool name too.)



Shall I designate you as the one to give our novels the girlish touch that Kyon-chan's tsundere nature needs?

She does need to sound more girlish, but not that much...

Wait, didn't we decide that she wouldn't be interested in Mitsuuru like that?

Well not that much. But she still sounds way too snarky and not balanced enough as it stands right now.

I dunno exactly what she thinks of Mitsuru right now. Protective and motherly for the most part, but may also harbor fantasies such as those of the Fujoshi Computer Society?

And for Asahina-san (big), I'd be surprised if she wasn't smitten over him, at least at first.

Yeah, definitely.

Kyon-ko: Why... why is he taking his shirt off?

I did a sketch of Big Asahina based on DKellis' description of him:



I remember somewhere someone mentioning a goatee...?
But I didn't add it, in case people were going for a 'bishie' kind of image ^^'
