Fanfic: The Calvinverse
The Calvinverse is an unofficial name for The Verse of Swing 123 and garfieldodie's Calvin and Hobbes Fan Fics.note 

All of them share some common traits: a tendency to rely on Aliens and Monsters, a lot of Genre Savviness, Lampshade Hanging, and general troperifficness. Oh, and a hefty dose of Adaptation Expansion and Script Fic.

The other main gimmick of the series is that they all pretend to be either an animated movie or a series on a children's network, and thus most Medium Awareness moments refer to those areas (though, confusingly, there are some references to fanfiction elements, such as chapters).

Calvin & Hobbes: The Series is the main focus of the canon, running for five seasons (with increasingly sparse updates). However, after garfieldodie took over uploading duty from Swing, he announced that Season 5 is the last season of The Series, but the verse will continue in a series of one-offs that will eventually bring everything to a close.

After The Series, garfieldodie proceeded to upload a rewritten version of Can You Imagine That?, including a coherent timeline for the series, as well as the long-awaited rewritten version of Calvin and Hobbes II: Lost at Sea.
