Why This Must Be Read: Haruhi drags Kyon along to investigate rumors of a ghost in a cave, and making out ensues. I love this story for the details it nails - Kyon’s muttering sarcastic first person POV, which mirrors the light novels (right down to how you’re never really sure what he’s saying out loud and what he’s merely thinking) to Kyon and Haruhi’s argumentative voices, even when trying kissing for the first time. It’s light-hearted and fun, and feels like canon, in exactly the way you want.

Why This Must Be Read: Kyon and Haruhi are sort-of dating, and sort-of really into each other, definitely making out, and totally in denial about the entire thing. This story is both sweet and sharp, and gets a lot out of an established but reluctant Kyon and Haruhi relationship, where both of them want more than they can really admit - and the fate of the world rests, as you might expect, on one girl enjoying a simple Valentine's Day date with her boyfriend.
