I reread this about once a year or so; maybe this time it just hit me so much harder bc I was shaking and overflowing with emotion, but I wanted to take the time to thank you for this story. As someone who used to read Calvin and Hobbes to her little siblings as a kid, this is a perfectly aged tribute to the spirit of the comics. I just feel so connected to Calvin in this, from his desires to be better getting punched out by unwitting failure, to the hopeful dreamer at his core despite what years of being talked down to and treated as stupid and bad has caked onto him. You did such an amazing job with this, and I'm grateful that I get to read it. Thank you.

Okay, I never read Calvin and Hobbes fanfiction, but this popped up in favorite stories list of an author I know - and I'm so glad I read it. This is so amazingly in character, and well-written and there's an actual plot and just - gah. I have no words. This was awesome. Thank you for writing this!

Adorable. This is extremely adorable.

Perfect. This fic was simply perfect. You captured the essence of the two central characters here, without even having Hobbes involved that much. The interactions of the two, and the situation for them, were beautiful. You weaved up something amazing here.
This was the third time I've read this over a very long timespan. But each time feels like the first. And that is a great feeling.
A great (fan)closure to the comics, really. This is one of the best short stories I've ever read.

This was really good. It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. Your writing reminds me a lot of Rainbow Rowell. Kind of simple but it sucks you in and makes you emotional. Really amazing

This fic made me cry the first time I read it. It perfectly captures the sadness of Calvin misunderstood, and how it must have been for him to grow up, along with just how great of a kid he really was. Kudos to you

I lied awake in bed just thinking about this story after I read it... beautiful. Just beautiful. I have no other way to describe it. It was really depressing how he just forgot about hobbes but you probably have your reasons for doing that... yeah thank you for this story

Geez, I was just looking around ffn for something different to read, and thought I'd take a look at this. Once again, one of your stories kept me up past 4:00 am but I couldn't stop until I found out how it ended. It's been quite a while since that's happened.
I remember reading 'Calvin and Hobbes' in the newspaper (along with a dozen other comics like Peanuts, Family Circus, For Better or For Worse) ...and the idea of taking a cartoon about a kid with an overactive imagination where his stuffed tiger talks to him and has adventures with him...and making it into a fanfic where he becomes a very screwed up adult is amazing. I loved reading this...thank you for sharing it!

Wow, this has to be one of the best fan fics I've read so far usually I don't really go for the romanictic stuff but damn this thing really got a hold of me. A serious conclusion to one of my favorite comics ending nicely on a on a high note.

Ok, Calvin is kind of a f**k-up. But you have to admire his follow through on crazy proclamations. I fully believe that that guy is going to buy her that house, even if she finally gets tired of him letting her down.

Such a sweet story :,) I can just vividly imagine their future together with Calvin being a stay at home dad writing about his adventures and Susie being the best doctor the town has ever seen...Just a lovely future for them.

Amazing. Just Amazing.

Some stories make you laugh, and others make you cry, and some make you want to laugh and cry and shake all at the same time for no apparent reason. This story is the third option. I love how Calvin kept imagining stories that matched the vague skeleton of what he was doing at the time - it seems so him.

I... okay... I... give me a minute. I'm crying. Like actually.
Okay. I apologize, my hands are shaking and I have to keep retyping.
That was amazing. Really and truly. I wish I was able to better articulate what about it is so amazing besides the whole thing, it's just- okay, no, I'm rambling. Let me compose myself.
Okay. Here we go. This was an incredibly well-done piece. The story is excellent and believable, and the whole thing just FEELS like Calvin and Hobbes. Even if there was very little Hobbes. That was one part I really liked- you kept tying it all back to Hobbes, still upstairs in Calvin's room. The whole thing just seems so real, like the perfect continuation of Calvin's story. I don't know what else to say. Bravo.
