On the bitter,cold morning of December 18th, Kyon wakes up to find everything a bit...off, At first it's little things like misremembered conversations, a sudden, curious cold spreading around campus, and the weirdest thing - Haruhi is absent. But what's weirder than Haruhi being absent? The fact that she doesn't seem to exist! And worse yet, all of kyon's friends from the SOS Brigade don't seem to remember him, even Miss Asahina. Suddenly, Kyon's crazy, Haruhi-filled-world becomes...normal.
