Amazing. It's been quite a long while since I felt a story, so thank you :]

Hm. The premise was beautiful and the beginning drew me in splendidly-the first handful of chapters are my favorite. David is the perfect name for Calvin's dad and Abby fit the mother really well, too.
Most of the plot developments were quite predictable and I thought it quite odd that Calvin let go of his old lifestyle so easily. Considering that Susie was introduced in the comic as a new girl in class, I think it's safe to assume that she wasn't around when he was 3. Another technical quibble: you said psychiatrist instead of psychologist in the last chapter.
I liked it overall. I wasn't too fond of how Hobbes was little more than a plot device, but I guess that's unavoidable in a story like this one. How Hobbes stops coming to life was a wonderful touch. I thought it peculiar that Calvin referred to Susie by her last name. I liked the last line.

Excellent story. Can you write a sequel? The story is very deep, not something I would be able to write, but I am certainly able to read. The story has meaning. A sequel would be awesome.

Sniff so beautiful! What a amazing story! I just wished Hobbes didn't have to leave... or did he?

This state of being is strange, I'm not sure whether I'm happy or sad or something else entirely. All I know is that I'm filled with emotion and you're responsible.

I am sorry for the loss of your father. Every death is tragic, and I understand that your father's was no exception. I think that Calvin and Hobbes helped you. They help all of us really: they're no different from Disney. They're childhood, youth, morals, and comfort. You have expressed yourself, and we, your fans, have understood you.
It's been a while since I've found a story as pure as this. I will never, for as long as I stay in the fan fiction community, forget this.

This is honestly one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. Your admiration of the comics really shows, and everything is realistic, bittersweet, and just fantastic. If there was ever going to be a Calvin and Hobbes movie, I'd insist that you'd write the script.
I'm literally crying as I type this. I am profoundly moved by your humble story.

This story portrays what I have been facing in my life. Everyone else is moving on, putting away childhood dreams and friends. But...I can't. I can't put away all this, even with facing the possibility with having no friends. Thank you for writing a story that touches on that.

Great job, this was a really cool story.
| Moose factor 8/5/12 . chapter 13
Lovely, lovely, lovely.
This was so articulately written and the imagery wasn't over powering, in your face but a wonderful compliment. People other under or over do it with imagery. But not you! Thanks for writing this.

I can't say it enough; I really, really, liked this story. The other reviewers have said what I wanted to say. This is a tear-jerker for sure. The way you expertly laid down the emotions was superb. You also made the story just that tiny bit weird, just like the comic. It was...oddly believable, if such a thing can be said of Calvin and Hobbes. Either way, kudos to you TIH, this story is a masterpiece.

I have always loved Calvin and Hobbes, and I adore this story, I feel that it is a true-to-character adulthood of Calvin and Susie. (And Hobbes!)
