from Code Geass.
>> Bathing!Tsuruya, back
>> Full!Frontal!Tsuruya, back; Full!Frontal!Tsuruya, front,

= ch008 =
>> NightRobe! Kyon, NightRobe Tsuruya
"He was wearing a light robe, one that matched Tsuruya's ... She slept with her hair done up in a pair of buns on either side of her head, probably so she wouldn't pull her hair when she shifted about."

>> Formal!Tsuruya No bun, maybe later.
"He spotted her quickly, standing on the path between the driveway and the house wearing a very elaborate kimono, her hair done up in an intricate bun."
++ (Kenshiro) Tsuruya-sama, patriarch of a House of the Crane, head of Tsuruya branch of chivalrous Yamaguchi-gumi base:Agasa clothes:Agasa expressions:Agasa
"The Tsuruya family patriarch was as tall as Kyon while sitting cross-legged on a thin cushion atop the dais, sporting neatly groomed short green hair -- identical in shade to the girl's, while his amused, knowing smirk betrayed an identical fang as well. Despite the fact that every other man was wearing a suit in the room, the patriarch managed to make all of the others look under-dressed, wearing only a green robe, less formal than the girl's, with the family crest patterned all across it.
Moreover, he had one arm free of the robe, baring half his chest and revealing the complex and detailed tattoos adorning him. Kyon tried not to gawk; it must have taken real courage and quite some time to have the vivid image of a fierce crane fishing a dragon from the heavens tattooed. It looked so lifelike, he practically expected it to leap off the man with one flexed muscle."
, from Fist of the Northern StarKing of God tribe
, from Shuffle!Largo the Black Lion
, from Tales of the AbyssZeRider
, from Fate/Zero
= ch010 =

"Hands in your pants pockets," she instructed him. "Shoulders back, head down, don't smile unless you're menacing someone."
++ Daimonji-kun, third-year photo collector.

++ Yanagimoto Ai, Haruhi's That Second Girl (to be) http://i1118.photobucket.com/albums/k613/SpecularReflection/shny/yanagimoto1.pnghttp://i1118.photobucket.com/albums/k613/SpecularReflection/shny/yanagimoto3.pnghttp://i1118.photobucket.com/albums/k613/SpecularReflection/shny/yanagimoto4.png
(eyes to the lower right corner, gentlemen!)
= ch011 =
>> Tsuruya, school, damaged
"Tsuruya's right hand was slashed and bleeding from the shattered windowpane. Her left shirt sleeve over her wrist, where Kyon had grabbed her, was bloodied with a large and expanding stain. "
>> Asakura Ryoko poster
"A familiar girl that she remembered seeing a long time ago.... She was looking over her shoulder, laughing about something as she undid the zipper on the side of her skirt, her long blue hair fanned out behind her."
Good stuff here
++ Tanaka and Hoshino, Organization's (Agents) undercover (as) teachers
"Tanaka was a shortish male with plain features in his thirties, and Hoshino was a tallish woman with sharp features in her forties."
++ Tamaru bros, Organization's (Agents) undercover (as) cops
"pair of police officers in standard dress."
Candidacy: Mario & Luigi :P
++ Computer Club pres
+? Unnamed teacher
= ch012 =
gakuran pants, undershirt, but no shirt and Kyon's normal head.
As for gakuran outfit itself, "Within was a complete uniform for a school he didn't recognize. ... but the unwrapped outfit was the more classic and traditional military-themed gakuran uniform. It looked very like the one he had seen on Koizumi in that alternate world...."
"thick, heavy shirt with bulky metal buttons."
Candidacies, Group picture
Good stuff here
, under the spoiler
>> Risqué'er Yuki
"He'd gotten his wish, and ended up with a glance of Yuki wearing nothing more visible to him than a skirt and simple white bra before she finished pulling the blouse on with mechanical precision."
>> Tsuruya, changing into a Kogal
"Tsuruya had put her hair up into a bun, and was currently wearing the matching sailor uniform to the outfit Kyon hadn't finished putting on yet. ... She had tugged the uniform's collar very loose, and rolled up the sleeves."
>> "Shirahama Kenichi", DelinKyon
Full gakuran grab and "His hair had been slicked back, only to break into a number of sharp-looking spikes."
"He eventually decided to leave it completely unbuttoned, and the shirt beneath un-tucked."
"A boy with his hair spiked back"
Matching seifuku, tan, lotsa makeup: "lipstick, eyeliner, and a pair of dangling clip-on earrings."
"a ditsy bubble-gum chewing kogal"
Gakuranform's matching sailor fuku.
seifuku, and "the traditional cadet's cap to go with a uniform like his own, black cloth with a short, hard bill. ... <positioned> Low, shadowing her eyes a little bit."
"and one of those small, sullen, quiet types who was probably good with unpleasant weapons, wearing a boy's uniform hat."
Same as above, but with cap put way back, so it almost falls off
++ Maruyama Iyouji, accountant of Fujiya branch of Sumiyoshi-rengo
Will have quite a number of scenes
++ Fujiya Masao
, boss of the Fujiya-tachi of Sumiyoshi-rengo
No data. Candidacy:
, from The Devil on G-String
Multi mooks for Melee intro
Brute and Scar make a comeback here
>> F.Masao, "with a pair of katana over his shoulders."
= ch013 =
>> Tsuruya-sama, suited
"allowing the tallest, largest man that Kyon's sister had ever seen in real life to emerge. His hair was green, not quite unruly, but tousled. He wore an immaculate dark blue suit, with a shiny pin on one lapel. She couldn't make out the detail, but she was willing to bet it was identical to the pin on Kyon's collar."
++ Kasai, loyal bodyguard of Tsuruya-hime; damaged
"a man almost as large as the fellow she guessed was Tsuruya's father painfully got out. He had a pin, too;"
"He moved stiffly, his suit almost, but not quite as fine as Tsuruya's father's. One arm was in a cast, and he had a crutch beneath the other."
Candidacy: Tatsuyoshi Kasai
, from HnN
++ Aida, trusted aide of Tsuruya-sama
"one of the men at his side, in a brown suit."
, that one 'date' of Kyon, way back then.
"She looked as physically mature as Kanae or Yuki, and most of the time she acted as mature as well, despite the fact that she and his sister were the same age. Dressed in the knee-length skirt, smart blouse, and with her dark hair styled more carefully than his sister usually bothered to"
Candidacy: Kanon, The Devil on G-String (selected)
= ch014 =
= ch015 =
+? Mitsuki, classmate of Kanae
No Data, beyond "genial and friendly", "holding pink envelope with heart-shaped stickers on it"
++ !CG? Mikuru-chan's photo
"A picture of Mikuru wearing practically nothing, her face timidly smiling, marked with an intense blush as she winked at the camera. She was laying on her side on a futon somewhere, propped up on one elbow, leaning forward. A man could get lost in that view, he thought, rounded globes barely contained in semitransparent strawberry pink patterned--"
++ !CG?! Tsu-chan's photo
"Tsuruya was unabashed as always, and even though he'd actually seen _more_ of her in a bath.... Sitting upright on the same futon as in Mikuru's photo, also winking, but without a trace of shyness as she gave the camera a victory sign. Her assets weren't as bountiful as Mikuru's, but she was still amazingly shapely. Concealed in a blueberry colored lingerie set not that different from Mikuru's... Moreover, with her hair in a fan behind her, her paler skin was brought into sharp relief, highlighting her shapely legs--"
++ Keiichi [classified], many years later.
"Keiichi was a lean man of very slightly taller than average height with brown hair that wasn't quite shaggy or unkempt, but he took no obvious care to style or comb it. Kyon didn't spend a lot of time cataloging the features of other men, but wouldn't really call him handsome -- or ugly -- merely decent looking. Still, he had a natural, eternally pleased grin, and Kyon couldn't remember a time he'd seen the man look worried, upset, or serious about things. Even despite that, and his typically lackadaisical attitude he seemed responsible. He was wearing a t-shirt and jeans with a worn but obviously cared for red vest, despite how cold the spring was so far north."
Maybe reuse Papa Maebara?
++ Rika Fuurude, many years later
"Rika, her dark blue hair swaying behind her to the small of her back. Neatly trimmed bangs reminded him uncomfortably of Asakura Ryouko, their hairstyles and colors were so similar. Rika's eyes, though, were purple, and her smile felt more genuine than anything he had ever received from the interface that had tried to kill him with a knife on more than one terrifying occasion. He also wasn't in the habit of looking at his aunt in the same way as a girl his own age, but she was somewhat taller, with elegant fingers and a certain grace that he'd never really seen matched. She at least wore a light sweater over her sun dress in concession to the chill."
The Almighty Oyashiro-sama
Still the same.
++ Shutaro, son of Rika, bathing
"providing another eerily symmetrical flash to the past <meaning, similar to his father>, save that his hair was neater, and a dusty blue color"
>> Shutaro, casual
++ Matsuri-chan, daughter of Rika, casual
"purple-haired girl", "looking almost identical to what Kyon could remember of Rika's childhood pictures"
Candidacy: Rika-chan as a kid.
= ch016 =
++ Rena Ryuguu, many years later
"unfamiliar woman with brown hair who reminded Haruhi of a less curvy yet older Mikuru with shorter hair"
++ Mion Sonozaki, many years later
Maybe base off Akane Sonozaki
++ Satoko Houjo, n-ty something years later
'Aunt' Satoko was an attractive blonde woman
LD :^P. Takano :^P x2
>> Rena, "taking it home" mode
"Rena's hands balled into fists beneath her chin. "No~!" she wailed, her eyes watery"
++ Naota, son of Mion
Green-gaired little version of his father
++ Makoto, daughter of Mion
Think of her mother in childhood
>> Haruhi, in the rain
>> Kyon, domestic mode
"the sight of him wearing jeans, a sturdy-looking solid blue long-sleeved shirt, and a very durable (but obviously also worn) apron with a bright red letter 'K' sewn onto it..."
= ch017 =
++ Yoko-chan and Azusa-chan, daughters of Satoshi and Shion
a duo of light green-haired little girls
Think of their mother in childhood
++ Yurie-chan, daughter of Rena
Think of her mother in childhood
++ Aiko-chan, daughter of Satoko
(light???) dark-blonde haired girl.

>> Matsuri-chan, after bath
dressed in loose fitting pajamas, and with her hair still dripping
>> rest of the kids, too (in pajamas)
>> Haruhi, in Kyon's PJ
"pulling at the pants legs of his pajamas. He glanced at her, strangely very cute in his too-large clothes."
++ Shion Sonozaki
++Satoshi Houjou, many years later
++ Hinamizawa gang, rough morning
++ Kasai Sr, Sonozaki bodyguard
"an almost identical, but much older man."
>> Keiichi, formal
Suit, most likely
>> Mion, formal
Kimono, most likely
= ch018 =
"She had a fashionable green dress on, and didn't seem to have anything more futuristic than a sleek, classy wristwatch."
++ !CG? domestiKyon, photo
"picture of Kyon with all his cousins either clinging to him or surrounding him. But, in the picture, he looked so incredibly _domestic_. He was wearing an apron
