| Oliver W.K. Twist chapter 1 . 11/18/2018
Okay. This was amazing. I was led here by TV tropes, so I didn't read your actual summary, therefore if it mentioned what the change was, I'm unaware. That said, it took me until somewhere around a third of the way through the story to figure out that he was blind, and that realization caught me off guard. This preserved the style of the light novels reasonably well, though it was a bit too obvious when he was actually talking. Overall the characterization was spot on, Nagato was a bit too talkative, Haruhi a bit too... shy almost? Nervous? Something like that. One thing, her kind of stumbling around sight related words was simultaneously cute and kind of insulting, this coming from someone who, while not blind, is visually impaired and has full awareness of the fact that I may one day become blind. Not saying that you were being insulting, but that could be considered insulting to a blind person. Of course, some would take offense to the words themselves instead, insult is like that, no rhyme or reason for it... I've gotten off track, il just reiterate that this was an amazing story, heard there was a sequel, will be reading that and then going to bed.

I totally didn't know until it was mentioned. I had stopped reading bearing the middle (because I really didn't know what was going to happen). But then the reviews said there was a twist, so I was like, why not learn what it is? Now I have to read it again lol. Thanks. It really is well-written, and the story is good as well. Thanks, this is for sure a fave. :)

Gemeric statement about the amazing premises of this piece of fiction and how much I admire it!
| Billy Ruffian chapter 1 . 3/15/2015
Don't remember if I ever reviewed this when you were alive, but it was my favorite of your stories, probably because I love the HaruhiKyon ship and they are so much closer to getting together here than in canon, since Haruhi has been forced to realize how inconsiderate she can be, plus I'm proud of how quickly I figured out the twist (around when Haruhi cuts her hair, IIRC). I liked pretty much all your MOHS stories, but thought this was the best.
| Dancou-Maryuu chapter 1 . 3/10/2015
Wow! I actually didn't get the difference until Taniguchi flat-out said it. I had thought that the difference was that it took place a few years in the future, given all the technology references.
If that was an attempt to mislead the readers, then it worked very well for me!
| MuRioDame chapter 1 . 6/8/2014
awesome story, thank you
| EatAToadJerkfaces chapter 1 . 4/24/2014
Thank you for writing such a great oneshot! I very much enjoyed reading this take of Kyon!
| WelcomeToTheLegend chapter 1 . 3/15/2014
Dang. Not even a fan of the show and thought this was good. I actually didn't figure out Kyon was blind until Haruhi ditched him. This was well done and quite enjoyable.
| pheiral chapter 1 . 3/5/2014
I don't expect that at all...his blindness is really shocking...I love how Haruhi develop at the end, this is really good and heart warming

Oh I totally called the blindness! But I liked this retelling of the first few episodes of Haruhi. No over complicated magic god powers, aliens, or time travelers. Just a cynical blind kid in high school meeting the most interesting girl there. I saw him not believing in the aliens or anything else from when I realized his condition. 'Seeing' is believing and all that. Well written though. On my list of favorite one shots
