I made Trust in God, or, The Riddle of Kyon, a Haruhi fanfic by Eliezer Yudkowsky, into a visual novel. At least, I started it. It still needs quite a bit of work. If anyone wants to edit it, message me.

Visual Novel or Kinetic Novel?

Nobody offered help. Any chance you can get people to help on the next HP:MoR Progress Report? Or should I just wait until I have enough time to sort of finish it on my own?

I... don't think the fate of the world depends on this, so am reluctant to advertise in the PR...

Yeah, but you always stick the fan works on there, don't you?

Technically this is a fan work for a different work you made, but still.

He also sticks tons of unrelated fiction recommendations in the author notes. And he tried to find a metalhead for Erin. And he advertised for Metamed and Shannon Friedman's counseling services.

Kinetic Novel. I didn't know that was a thing until you mentioned it just now.

Based on the Wikipedia definition of "kinetic novel" I almost feel like the two terms should be reversed.

The presence of so many Kyon: Big Damn Hero files in the repo is kind of confusing. Especially kbdh_trope_list.txt, which looked interesting, but then confused me in that it didn’t talk about Trust in God. If possible, you should remove the KBDH files from the repo.

If you want to keep those files around to use as references, you could move them into a separate folder out of the repo. Or keep them in your working copy but not commit them, with the help of a .gitignore file. Or at least move the files to their own folder so we don’t have to figure out which story each file belongs to.

I figured that as long as you're downloading a lot of that stuff anyway, I might as well leave in the KBDH stuff so you could see that one too. You can get there from the chapter select. I probably should put that on the readme. It might be a good idea to move the KBDH stuff to a different folder though, and I should probably take out the trope list.

It will probably take a while for me to get around to anything, though.
