Yeah, mass edit when I noticed Kyon using first name when he should
not be on that basis.

How would you like to see her? This version is NEVER depressed, as
she's sitting on her on switch. Why shouldn't she be excited? She
wants to be special and is clearly aware that she is special.
Would you rather see a story where Haruhi has a small window into her
true nature and fears it? She'd be constantly blaming and suppressing
herself and Kyon's role would be to first take an interest in her
himself and then slowly work her out of her shell. That would be a
complete inversion of the standard oblivious jerkass Haruhi.

Pity the old list tradition of MST has died out. Perhaps we need a MST

She hasn't had a chance yet to show Kyon her favorite thing, but it
has been hinted at a bit. She's a giant movie buff. I thought I might
have her reveal the reason for the haircut this time, but that's

Yes it is. Thanks.
