    Default The Novel Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    Discuss about material that occurs in the novels Voumes 1 - 9 & "Haruhi Theater"

    I never realized how many people haevn't actually reed the novels yet... well hopefully they'll get through it soon so we can discus about them.

    Anywayz My favourite volume is Voume 4 for Obvious reasons, I was so Shock that the person who changed the world was Yuki.

    I thought the 1st half of Volume 7 was boring up until when Asahian got kidnapped and Tsuruya found a foreign object that will probably play a role in the future novels...

    Volume 9 is interesting as in other forms there's many theories how the story may turn out... the most popular one being that volume 10 may introduce Sliders.

    There's so much to discuss I can't remember it all... I may have to re-read the novel again for the 3rd time :S :P lol

    As per Volume 4. yeah I was expecting that it was Tsuruya. I should have realise that it was Yuki as per Kyon's deduction. but I sure wish we can see Moe Yuki again cause she's so ... MOE! xD

    I forgot which volume it is but I'm thinking about that Metal rod that Kyon digged up with Mikuru. I'm guessing its going to be a big milestone later on. Something that Kyon might be glad/regret that he gave it to Tsuruya.

    Been a long time since I read the novel, but now that you mentioned it, definitely this.

    Or any of the time travel scenes, those are always nice.

    I like the Yuki chapters. Like the last Day of Sagitarius, Love at first sight lover and the Endless Eight.

    I also like Chapter 4! But I also like Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody and Editor in Chief★Straight Ahead!

    As I notice, most of the adventures of Kyon are thru time travels.

    Is there a better translation of volume 9 out, than the one on Baka-Tsuki?

    Volume 4 was cool. Also really liked Yuki's short story for the Editor in Chief bit.

    ^ no not that I know of... Ironically Baka Tsuki Translate the Chinese version fo the light novel so we're getting a tranlation fo a tranlation.

    Don't forget the Haruhi Theaters, (I still personally haven't reed it yet... I keep forgetting too)

    Yeah Yuki temporarily becomes a god in volume 4... it's an awesome novel because I was so shocked what Yuki did...it made me like her more becuase it showed she was human afterall.

    I reckon the Yuki's Short story is a foreshadow of what will happen in the future.. I REALLY HOPE YUKI DOESNT DIEO R LEAVE THE SOSDAN

    Just read the Theaters now too. Pretty cute.

    Regarding the Yuki short story, I took it to be a look at the past - the things that brought her to the 'now'. I thought that her death was possibly decided by the Sentinet Data Entity (or whatever), and that is the coffin. The person sitting on the coffin is Kyon and it is his threat (from the time in the hospital) that is keeping her alive.

    heres the short story. I think I should make a separate thread for it but it falls under the category of Novels so I posted it here:

    When I asked for her name, "I do not have a name." was her answer. "Since I do not have a name, I am a ghost. You are probably the same." the girl continued.

    That is correct. I am also a ghost. If a being is able to converse with ghosts, then that being must also be a ghost. Like I am now.

    "Well then, shall we go?"

    She said, and I followed. The girl's steps were so light, she looked completely alive. "Where will you go?" the girl asked me, as she stopped moving her feet and turned around.

    "You can go anywhere. Was there a place you wanted to go to?"

    I was lost in thought for a moment. Where have I gotten to? What is this place? Why am I here?

    As I stood still, I couldn't help but gaze into the girl's dark eyes.

    "Weren't you thinking of going to xxxx?"
    White things were falling from the sky. Numerous, tiny, fluttering, aqueous crystals.

    The girl had discerned my answer. When I heard those words, I finally understood what my own role was. Yes. I was on my way there. How could I forget? For this important matter, I had a reason to live and exist.

    It is something I must not forget.

    "So, that's that, then."

    The girl smiled happily. I nodded, and expressed my thanks to her.

    "Good bye."

    The girl disappeared, leaving me by myself. She had probably returned to her place. And in the same way, I had to return to my place.

    White things were falling from the sky. Numerous, tiny, fluttering, aqueous crystals. They fell to the earth and vanished.

    It was one of the wonders that filled time and space. In this world, such wonders were common. I stood absolutely still. The passing of time had lost its meaning.

    Those wonders of bound cotton continued to fall, one after another.

    This shall be my name.

    And with that thought, I was a ghost no more.
    『Untitled 2』 Nagato Yuki



    Until then, I had never been by myself. I was one of many. I was a part of the set.

    My group was bound together like ice, eventually expanded like water, and finally diffused like vapor.

    And a single particle of that vapor, was me.

    I was able to go anywhere. I went to various places, and saw various things. But I did not learn anything. There was only the act of seeing, for that was the only function allowed me.

    For a long interval, I was like that. Time was pointless. All the phenomena in that artificial universe held no significance.

    But in time, I found meaning. Proof of my existence.

    Matter attracts matter. This is the truth. I was drawn in, because it possessed form.

    Light, darkness, contradiction, and common sense. I had encountered, and connected with each one. Those functions were not in me, but perhaps I might not mind having them.

    If I were allowed to, I would have them.

    As I continue to wait, will those wonders keep on falling?

    Those tiniest of wonders.
    『Untitled 3』 Nagato Yuki



    A black coffin remained in the room. There was nothing else.

    Above the coffin in the middle of the dark club room, sat one man.

    "Good day."

    He said to me. He was smiling.

    Good day.

    As I kept standing there, a white cloth alighted from behind the man. In the middle of the darkness, the cloth was enveloped by a pale light.

    "Pardon my lateness."

    The white cloth said. Or rather, the person who was wearing the big, white piece of cloth. Through holes cut out where the eyes would be, black pupils were looking at me.

    It seemed like the one inside was a girl. I could tell from her voice.

    The man laughed in a low voice.

    "The recital has not yet started."

    The man did not move from above the coffin.

    "There is time, still."

    The recital.

    I was remembering something. What was I going to present here? Quickly, now. But I could not remember.

    "There is time."

    The man said. He was smiling at me. The apparition of the white girl danced around happily.

    "We will wait. Until you remember."

    The girl said. I gazed at the black coffin.

    There was only one thing; I remembered why I was here.

    My place was within the coffin.

    I had come from there, and I had come back here so I could return. But the man was sitting on the coffin. As long as he doesn't leave, I cannot go in.

    However, there was nothing in me to present. I wasn't qualified to join the recital.

    The man started singing in a low voice. Synchronizing with the white cloth's dance.

    As long as he doesn't leave, I cannot go in.
