Yes, I do believe that's what's called being 'Sidetracked'.

And, I do believe I'm one of the folks that still remembers the initial impetus to the Genderswap stuff (given the fact that my friend literally shocked me with it). I'm still interested to see how some situations translate (the 'club recruitment' scene in the latest novel comes to mind), or whether they translate well at all.

By the way, has anyone bothered looking at the Haruhi Theatre shorts? They're more or less self-contained, and barring some situations and terms, easily gender-neutral.

Welcome.


In other news, Volume 1 Chapter 7 FINAL:

Spoiler for Chapter 7 Final:


Used some stuff from Aebliss and dkellis again. Still, I loved writing the end of the Closed Space sequence. Poor Kyon-chan.

a few things:

1. Seriously... even the Shinj... Celestials, which I always considered genderless, are included? I was only kidding when I suggested the idea of a Seitenkan motivational poster using them

2. Wow... frenching on the first kiss? A bit much...

3. If Kyon didn't bring up the fact that the actual story of Snow White didn't feature a kiss(the dwarves basically just dropped her and the apple got dislodged from her throat), I really don't see much of a reason for Kyonko to bring up the same with Frog Prince. Unless it was done for the reason of her wanting to cut his head off, that I'll understand.

1. No exceptions.

2. Well, Haruki IS a guy without any reservations...

3. Yeah, it's because she wanted to cut his head off.

1. No exceptions.
The question isn't whether to make an exception for them or not, the question is if they're male gender (thus reversed to female) or genderless energy beings (thus reversed to still genderless).

Japanese doesn't have gender pronouns, so they're neutral by default. BT's translation refers to them as "he", however, and I just ran with it.

The idea is that Haruki thinks of them as female for some reason.

Lol Highlander?


Anyway, without further ado, Volume 1 Epilogue.

Spoiler for Volume 1 Epilogue:


There. It's done. Finally done.

Now it's 2:30 in the morning and I need sleep. Goodnight, everyone.

Well... can you think of anything else where someone would want to chop off the head of a godlike being?

In Haruhi's universe? There's only one possible candidate, and he's the one who can't risk doing so.

RmX: Sorry for not dropping by sooner, I registered around February when this madness took off, but never received the confirmation email until last week. Between my normal work here at my company (brokerage firm, whoo boy, and look at the rollercoaster the World markets have been lately), being sent to Arlington VA for one month for Risk Management training, and having just arrived home this week, well, very little time except take a little peek.

I can't promise I'll be able to contribute though, except for possibly editing and proofreading (both part of the major I graduated in). Just going to enjoy the spectacle. I think.

March, actually; it lists you as joining "Mar 2008". But anyway, as you are basically a newcomer, it seems you are entitled to the proper welcome after all:

WELCOME. YOU SHALL SERVE KYONKO WELL. AND ALSO ITSUKO, WHEN SHE DRESSES UP KYONKO IN TOUHOU COSPLAY.

Gimme a break! ^^; You posted all of this stuff while I was at work, apparently. Anyway, congratulations on a great effort. I'll see if I can find time to do a little editing -- one Haruhi and one blue wall spotted -- later.

Norse and Greek mythology. Although the Greek mythology also involved the chopping off of assorted other body parts. Perhaps if Kyonko somehow drew a reference between Haruki's world creation scenario and Ragnarok, she could compare herself to Odin beating down the Midgard Serpent or somesuch, or any of the other deities putting paid to giants. That would actually make sense ... if she were to compare Haruki to one of the giant kings, like Surt, since the celestials might be compared to fire giants.

Wasn't Odin getting eaten part of Ragnarok?

*e* Just went to confirm it. He did, and it was Thor who took on the Midgard Serpent(with Thor dying immediately after slaying it... gotta love how they went out of their way to say how their gods die)

Yes, but Thor bashed the snake in the head afterwards. Oh, I see now -- I made a mistake when I wrote my previous post. Should've been Thor ... My error. Anyway, Odin probably got his licks in, too, before he snuffed it. Or should I say he will get his licks in before he snuffs it? Ragnarok is a prophecy, after all, not a history.
