Nothing is perfect. It must be edited.

That said, I only read the first, third and last paragraphs/lines.

The idea is fairly funny.

TBH I would never have known that Doctor Who used the name John Smith if you people hadn't been hypothesising about it in the first place, despite having watched quite a lot of Doctor Who - haphazardly, but quite a lot nonetheless.

Probably not as big as it is here. And since when is Kyon normal? He's as normal as Haruhi is. He's just a lot quieter about it.

His old friends seemed to have regarded him as the "weird one", for that matter.

And my point still stands that Kyon knows a little bit about everything.

Kyon is a Bard. He takes ranks in Perform (snark) and Perform (facepalm).

I just said that a few posts ago...

So he uses his bardic song abilities through sarcasm? AWESOME.

Hey, I just got an idea for a new character!

(Also, wouldn't that mean he can use Suggestion? Explains a lot, really.)

I've been avoiding TVTropes for the past month or so.

Not because of anything "traditionally" bad or unwelcome, but entirely because I Want My Life Back.

But on the basis that (as far as I can tell through the translations) he has never ever mentioned any kind of link with Doctor Who, I don't think this is one of them.

Occam's Razor says "GENERIC" and I don't think you should go any further than that.

Anyway, a new genderbender story popped up on fanfiction.net... that's not stealing from anyone, but turns the genderbending meme on its ear!

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4307507/1/Switcharoo

still needs work imho...

ahhaha that was a pretty funny story. I don't think it needs anymore work, its fine as it is already.

Yeah, it's fine for a start, but it's interesting enough that I'd like to see a more full-length story on this topic. Kyon's reaction to Kyonko's world seems to usually be thought of first before vice-versa, from the (very) few doujin scan pages I've seen.

I'm still voting for "Sarah Jane Smith". Relatively common combination of names and is a safeguard in case the original actually was a Doctor reference.

I guess he took two levels for the bonus feats?

Koizumi was the bard there though. (He's more sorceror-quality, really.)

I guess it's because of the whole "bards r teh ghei lol" thing... which is sad, because bards are absurdly powerful if built well.

Going by DnD:

Yuki = Fighter/Mystic Theurge
Mikuru = Cleric
Koizumi = Psion
Kyon = Bard
Haruhi = Ao

...And I just lost about two more hours on TVTropes....

Ao? Huh?

I'd say Haruhi'd be a Duskblade or something. Fighting ability and Magical power GO!

Actually, she'd probably be a munchkin and multiclass like mad.

And exactly how is Yuki a Mystic Theurge without levels in Wizard and Cleric?

Mikuru is a Healer, a class found in the Miniatures Handbook. Typical White Mage class.

And Kyon is Fighter/Bard.

Ao. Technically from the Forgotten Realms universe, but...basically, Ao is the god who created all the other gods, the creator of the Forgotten Realms universe (and is stated at least once to be the creator of the DnD multiverse, though not in those exact words). In other words, Haruhi. XD

Yuki took a leaf out of the Players Handbook II and did a Gestalt class.

Didn't know about the Healer class, but that was the basic idea I was going for for Mikuru (anachronistic nurse outfits ftw! XD)

Yeah, but you can't play as Ao mechanically.

Monk/Paladin, maybe?

(Actually, that works...)

Gestalts aren't in the PHBII, they're in Unearthed Arcana and no sane DM would ever allow them because they unbalance the game. Also, you can't gestalt a prestige class and a base class.

Sorc/Rogue multiclass? Not a bad idea, really.
