I do not own Calvin, Hobbes, or the Devil Fruits. Bill Watterson owns Calvin and Hobbes, and Eiichiro Oda owns the Devil Fruits.
It is said that imagination is a wonderful thing, but sometimes it can run away with you. Such was the case with a 6-year-old boy by the name of Calvin. He lived somewhere in the United States with his parents. He was known for getting in trouble, but he wasn't always to blame. In fact, Calvin has always claimed it was out of his control, usually putting the blame on his stuffed tiger, Hobbes. Many people think Hobbes is Calvin's imaginary friend, but if that was true, then why would Calvin be arguing with Hobbes? Imaginary friends are made so kids have someone to agree with them.
The answer is simple. Calvin sees things that others don't. But he's not crazy! One time, Hobbes supposedly tied Calvin to a chair at the boy's request. Calvin couldn't get out, so his father had to untie him. The question is, how did Calvin get stuck that way if Hobbes isn't real? IS he real? Maybe...
Well, if he wasn't real before, he would be quite soon. On this day, something would happen to change the companions' lives...
Calvin had just got off the bus after ANOTHER disastrous day at school. He walked up to the door, wondering if this day could get any worse...
"I'M HOOOME!" Calvin shouted as he opened the door.
Suddenly an orange and black blur flew at Calvin, sending the both of them flying across the street! They skidded to a halt and the orange-and-black creature got up. It was Hobbes, giving Calvin the usual greeting.
"Whoa!" the tiger exclaimed, "That's gotta be a new record!"
Calvin groggily got up, shaking his head. "Next time," Calvin muttered, "I'll have a tiger trap ready and waiting."
As they got into the house, Calvin's mother asked, "What on earth happened to you?"
"Don't ask," Calvin replied.
When the friends got up to Calvin's room, the boy asked, "Why do you do that all the time?"
Hobbes grinned. "I dunno," he said, "Tiger's instinct, I suppose."
Calvin groaned. Then he decided to change the subject. He reached into his backpack and pulled out a book.
"What's that?" asked Hobbes.
"It's part of an awesome book series called One Piece," Calvin explained, "It's about this guy who ate a weird fruit and got a rubber body!" He read the back cover's summary.
Author's note: I took the summary from the back of One Piece, Vol. 1, with a few changes.
As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer "Red-Haired" Shanks. But his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the fruit of the Gomu-Gomu Tree, and gained the power to stretch like rubber ...at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure...one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary "One Piece," said to be the greatest treasure in the world...
"...Somehow that doesn't sound too exciting..." Hobbes said.
"I know," Calvin grumbled, "The stupid editors didn't give a good enough summary. See, later on, Luffy gets a whole crew. The members are Roronoa Zoro, the 1st mate, Nami, the navigator, Usopp, the marksman, Sanji, the cook, Tony Tony Chopper, the doctor, Nico Robin, the archaeologist (go figure why they'd need one of those), and Franky, the shipwright. They go on all sorts of crazy adventures in search of One Piece ... the search that the editors also didn't describe well enough."
"Yeah, how would getting One Piece make Luffy 'King of the Pirates'?"
Calvin cleared his throat, then, attempting a deep voice, said...
"Wealth. Fame. Power. The man who had it all, the King of the Pirates, Gold Roger. His final words before he was executed sent men throughout the world to sail the seas. 'My wealth and treasures? It's right where I left it. Look for it! I left it all at that place!' Men now, chasing their dreams, head towards the Grand Line. The world now enters The Great Age of Piracy!"
Hobbes gave a satisfied grin. "Now THAT'S better!" he said.
Calvin then headed toward the closet. "I intend to meet that crew," he said, pulling out a certain cardboard box...
"Uh-oh!" Hobbes cried.
So, how do you like it? I was waiting for someone else to do a One Piece-Calvin and Hobbes crossover, and when they didn't, I decided to take matters into my own hands. Read and review, PLLLEEEEEEEAAAAASSSSE!!!!
