--> Susie was playing on the sidewalk with Mr Bun.\\
She was performing a ritual known to us only as "THE TEA PARTY".\\
That's not me talking by the way, Calvin slipped it in while I wasn't looking.

--> '''Calvin:''' Now hurry up, and go! We're running out of room for this chapter!

[[folder: Tropes for the rewrite]]
* AlliterativeTitle: All the chapter titles.
* BirthdayEpisode: Calvin's first birthday since he got rid of the FloatingTimeline back in ''Fanfic/TheCollective'' and thus, his first one to subvert the AgelessBirthdayEpisode trope since he turned six, occurs during the fic.
* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Good '''grief''' yes.'' For one thing, [[spoiler: Human!Rupert's character]] has been completely revamped from a wacky Creator/JimCarrey knockoff to a grim ShellShockedVeteran with a downright ''tragic'' backstory. His kidnapping of Calvin and Hobbes is a much more serious affair here, as everyone reacts to it appropriately.
