Rating: K+ (9+)
Author Summary: Haruhi never got drawn into the music room, never broke the vase, never owed a debt. She was, however, shown to the gym by Mori so that she could study in relative peace. That’s really got to change a few things. Oneshot. Complete. Do Not Own. MxH
Relationship:Mori x Haruhi
Applicable Tags: Friendship/Romance, Fluff, Friends-Dating?
Review (Contains Spoilers):
In this AU, the vase is not broken, her identity as a female is revealed farther along in the story (instead of the first host club interaction), and she becomes close friends with Mori and Honey. It is a cute and sweet refreshing story suitable for all ages.
Things That I Loved:
A slightly more vocal Mori. Ya boy has a lot of lines of dialogue in this story. The story contains his usual grunts but he also is given the opportunity to voice his opinion on certain matters. This makes him seem more like a normal person and less like a high functioning robot in a human body. We see him blush a little and flex his protective muscle. Also, Haruhi vacationed with him and Honey for like 3 weeks. Can you imagine the kind of conversations they had while on vacation?? It’s no wonder the girl was starting to become smitten with talk, dark, and handsome near the end of the story.
Things I Didn’t Care For:
I am a stickler for formatting. Just because someone classifies it as a one shot does not limit the story to one chapter (IMO). This story could have done well just to split it up into two chapters. But an honest question, what qualifies as a one-shot in your opinion?
Favorite Lines or Quotes From Story:
“Haru-chan will never go topless,” the loli-shota insisted.
Would I Read Again?
I am not usually one to read something that is just fluff/friendship but I could see myself going back at least one more time to read through this story as a palate cleanser. Sometimes I get in a rut of only reading angst or really dark and twisty fics but this is a nice ray of friendship sunshine!
