As a long-time follower of Death-Scimitar and her RGB story, I only just stumbled upon this. While I admit I found many things rather amusing or funny, your style of writing doesn't quite work with the genre. I found myself mostly just scanning the blocks of description and only focusing on the dialogue. There was just too much background. Though the three robbers sound amusing, I'll have to check out Gundam SEED then.
For the most part, I think you maanged to get the humor across, I just had to slog through the blocks of expo to get to it.

Heck... that WAS fun...
This Wufei is such a laugh!
RENGE is devil, hell... The false-erotic scene with Renge and Quatre was real LOL!
OH MY GOD TROWA BROKE HIS NOSE! KHAHSHAHAHAHA
I believe it was in the movie Mr&Ms Smith, when John goes to Jane's "office" and appears from the ventilation shaft.

This was too damn funny. I feel kind of sorry for the pilots though - not exactly one of their best moments. Lol. And awesome nod to The Boondock Saints - that's easily one of my favorite movies.

So, I know I promised this review about three days ago when you put this up, but even though I was terribly busy and it slipped my mind, it was still fun to see you squirm. No offense, of course.
This was an interesting challenge and when you guys told me about it, I wasn't sure what to expect. You've done some humor in the past, but to do an Anime that is completely in the humor/romance category? I wasn't sure if you would be able to pull it off. Again, I was proven wrong and you even managed to keep the characters in their original characterization. Brava! Trying to put those three ingredients together (SEED Druggies, Host Club, and Gundam Wing pilots) must have been quite a headache. And a bank robbery was the LAST scenario I would have come up so Kudos for that, my friend!
The first part was the typical Haruhi drawl, mad about her situation and apparently not so far into the series when she started enjoying her time there. Far enough, however, to know the hosts' character traits, but she saw them like the shallow creatures she thought they were towards the beginning of the Anime. Knowing that, I was surprised to see that no one defied her original expectations once the bank robbery arouse. Tamaki, despite appearances, has a noble streak that-in my opinion-wouldn't involve squealing about a robbery when there were so many women around he might feel the need to protect. BUT the notion was so ridiculously humorous I couldn't help forgetting about his "manly" instincts and just rolled my eyes, finding those antics believable.
I actually expected the Wing boys to be a part of the Ootori secret service instead of some people Renge brought into the mix. I could see Kyouya having some ace Gundam pilots under his sleeve for just that kind of situation. ;)
I'll keep going with the "serious" stuff until heading over to the moments that just made me outright laugh. So, on that note, the Druggies. Bank robbers... Priceless! I would say they are far too unorganized to be robbers (and would probably jump right to mass murder instead of taking hostages) but that robbery was the furthest thing from organized crime. And the three of them were so far from stable you see the guys threatening everyone with guns then one of them turning around to give Tamaki swirlies? The unstable thing works, but the Druggies giving swirlies? Hm...
The Gundam references were hilarious! The guys always close to shooting each other and then outright complaining about it. And one of the moments I absolutely broke out laughing (all right, I'll jump into the humor prematurely just this one time) was when Organ jumped onto Clotho. Priceless!
Alright, back to the "serious" stuff. I guess I didn't get the hostage exchange. Duo was the hostage, but there was no exchange. Did it just not get that far? And why would the Druggies even agree to an exchange? What was in it for them? No one was sick and needed to get out, no one was pregnant and under stress, they wouldn't give away the rich boys... Did I miss something?
It would have been kind of neat if you added in the media. I could just see the ridiculous picture on the front page and the Host guys trying to take some kind of credit. Then again, Hunny and Mori did most of the work. Anyway, that might have been an interesting thing to add in. Or even in the beginning have Haruhi listening to a television broadcast about a rise in robberies and descriptions about the weird thing the Druggies had done. A MO maybe? Ah well, I'm just brainstorming.
The conversations over the radio was a creative idea, but I got so lost I had to scratch my head and just jump down to the CAPS. I think Clotho was still hitting on Duo and Haruhi was talking to Tamaki...? Then Hunny got loose? I dunno, I do give you major props for trying it though!
Now, back to the funny stuff! My outright favorite part (and it looks like some reviewers feel the same way) was when Trowa tried busting through the glass at the front of the bank. I laughed so hard and the visualization was even funnier! Brava! The parts about the guys and their infiltration tactics was pretty funny too. Chinese delivery was an oldie, but ultimate goodie. Trowa scrunching himself in that mailing escapade was humorous as well. Somehow I can't imagine Duo coming out of that unscathed. Trowa's an excellent soldier in his own right so why didn't they both end up in therapy? :P
All in all this was a good one shot and congrats on completing the challenge. Let's just see if you win. :P

You know, even though I haven't watched Gundam Wing and I have no idea what the hell the Host Club is, I really enjoyed this fic. The only characters I knew were the Druggies.
I think this alone speaks about the quality of your writing. Even though I know only a few characters, the story is still enjoyable.
My favorite parts were the ones where Orga constantly almost shoots Clotho. An excellent representation on how they acted in Gundam Seed. The riding on Clotho's shoulders thing, in order to get out of the bank was also very good.
Either way, a very funny story.
There... that should be enough for you to win your bet, right?
| Anon chapter 1 . 2/15/2012
I would have read all of it. But it's Ouran Highschool Host Club, which automatically makes me not read it. Sorry, normally I love your stuff, but I can't stand Host Club.
| TrenchcoatMan chapter 1 . 2/15/2012
I haveto say i wouldnt have recognized the boondock saints scene if i hadnt just watched it like a month ago. Heero and Wu Fei are perfect for the scene tho.
This fic was horrible in a most humorous way. Kept me laughing though the whole thing. It was so OOC in the way most crackfics are, but definitely a much better read. Im pretty sure you met and beat whatever personal challeneges you were going for with this fic .
Though I haveta say, I am disappoint, no Zero Quatre.

Excuse me while my brain restarts.
Alright, now that that's done with, I have to say this was a rather amusing chapter.
However, with my overactive imagination having reacted with Heero's threat to Wufei, I'm going to have to retroactively edit my recollection of this chapter so that Trowa and Heero stormed the bank with a pair of M249s and an AA-12, respectively.
Now, to catch up with Reclamation War...
| black-klepon chapter 1 . 2/14/2012
What... just happened in there...
Dear Lord, you had me curling in the ground, laughing my a** off, especially during and after Duo's... infiltration. Granted, the whole crisis happened because of Haruhi going to the bank... just how the hell Renge managed to gather those five pilots, I don't want to know - Dorothy might've just met her counterpart (albeit random) in a different universe...
And Duo. Oh God, DUO. Leave all cross-dressing and hostage-pretending to him... Really, you ought to put in a scene in the last part about how he dealt with his comrades, especially Wufei. And also about the recording...
Just for the record, Trowa hurling himself into the plate window glass and bouncing back, muscles spasming and nose bleeding? By far the most *epic* and *hilarious* thing he ever did. Being shipped to Iceland and its consequences doesn't even come close...
An Usa-chan-harmed-enraged-Hunny is one you would not want to mess with... Even more than Mori going out all protective. ...On the other hand, combination of the two could probably bring the whole bank down... added with the fact that chaos was literally inside the building...
All in all, this oneshot is a clean break from your usual works, and a humor at that... Well, I'd hope for you to maybe branch out into the Wing fandom sometime later after TGA has finished... but yeah. Great fic, and a refreshing change from the usual seriousness. :D
| LordRevanMandaloreofZutara chapter 1 . 2/14/2012
Well that was... interesting. I guess. I don't know what to think of Ouran High School Host Club. It was annoying switching back and forth between the story and Wiki to find out who the people were. I enjoyed the part with the Gundam people. Those at least I knew. Man, now that I think about it, Gundam Wing was the first Gundam show I ever saw, right around 2000. Awesome. Wufei and Duo were funny, as was the scene with Heero and Wufei in the vents.
Still I think you do a better job on more "dark" stories. Not that it wasn't well written or anything.

Die Hard. It was Die Hard.
| Play4ever chapter 1 . 2/14/2012
Would that be Boondock Saints 2? :D Funny movie.
| JDSF chapter 1 . 2/14/2012
Well...this was interesting...not all that funny, but kind of odd and silly. I thought it was light-hearted...but I have never read your previous works, so I don't know about this. I have seen Gundam, so I do know some of these characters...but still...
Hahaha, you wanted opinions and you got it. Happy Valentine day. Is it just me, or do you have a lot of girl authors in your life?
Anyway, just like actor's who stick to genres...maybe you should stick to writing darker stories?
I am not saying this is a failure...it was good. And it was very well written, but it was just kind of silly and not much else. A lot of military humor if that makes sense, and kind of out of touch with highschool stuff (kids acting way too smart for their age).
But if I find the time, I think I may read your other works...so yeah, you got a new person interested in your other work, so mission accomplished in that regard. :)

Oh My God. Landed file that was soooool funny. I had to stop reading at lest three times I was laughing so hard. I've never read Oran before but I got the gist of it
Also was it mission impossible for the air shaft scene.
