Sweet Haruhi: A Review of a Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Fan Fiction Story
Not a crossover story but think of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya combined with the "gestalt" of My Little Pony Freindship is Magic and you have ... Sweet Haruhi.
I stumbled across this one when about to sign off from fanfiction.net. I usually don't do much reading of others fan fics because, as everyone who reads my works know ... I ... am the greatest anime fan fic writer ever to come along.
Then ... Something comes along to tack the word ... MAYBE ... on to that. Hnnnnngh!
In this case it's Sweet Haruhi by thesweeper1957.
Sweet Haruhi is one of those stories that does just that. No, my ego is not fragile in the least but it does get affronted from time to time.
Having nothing better to do, I read the summary blurb and clicked to the story. After a few paragraphs in I realized I WAS doing something better to do.
Kyon wakes up in an alternate universe where it's, as stated in the Leslie Gore song "Sunshine, lollipops ... Rainbows every where ... Everything is wonderful when ... We're to-geth-er!" (I thought parts of Aaron Coplands', Our Town to be appropriate in places as well.). Yes, it's like that. And not in just basic, primary Fisher Price colors.
The sky's bluer than blue. The world is clean, bright and colorful. Everyone's generally happy, enthusiastically so. Even in their work. So much so, it's like play. No war, strife or crime. Law enforcement is mainly for crowd control at events and giving directions. Never is heard, a discouraging word, and the sky is ... Oh! I mentioned that already.
Oh yes! Not to mention elves, dwarves, fairies, dragons and unicorns show up. I'm not making this up! ... thesweeper1957 did.
However, if there's one unchangable constant in any universe that would be ole "put upon" Kyon. The new world Haruhi may have created gets him a bit discombobulated. Of course, he takes the above in his usual snarky stride and resolves to find a way back to the land of normalcy. Wotta' dip!
But ... Something happens. Something or rather SOMEONE appears who really knocks the sarcastic slider for a loop and a half.
She's in love with him. She calls him honey. She wants to be near him always. She's not kicking him around! She's actually ... NICE ... to him. She even makes him lunch!
And that's when Kyon really gets bento-ed out of shape!
This CAN'T be the Haruhi he's known and "loathed". This isn't the Goddess Whackjob he's always at odds with. This kind, caring, wonderful apparition? Imposter!
This grudgingly makes him more resolved to "go back".
Kyon's not really into happy, is he?
Does he find a way back?
Does he make it back to our world?
Is he really that DUMB!?
It's best you find out yourself by reading Sweet Haruhi.

As for me, I'm heading off to Disneyland! ... Sees ya'!
