The ''Calvinverse'' is an unofficial name for TheVerse of Creator/{{Swing 123}} and Creator/{{garfieldodie}}'s ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' {{Fan Fic}}s.[[note]]When asked if they had an official name, garfieldodie responded with a ShrugOfGod and that "we don't think of it like that" - though [[AscendedFanon he later referenced the name]] in the epilogue of "Black Rain".[[/note]]

All of them share some common traits: a tendency to rely on AliensAndMonsters, a lot of {{Genre Savv|y}}iness, LampshadeHanging, and general [[{{Troperiffic}} troperifficness]]. Oh, and a hefty dose of AdaptationExpansion and ScriptFic.

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 MediumAwareness moments refer to those areas (though, confusingly, there are some references to fanfiction elements, such as chapters).

''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' is the main focus of the canon, running for five seasons (with [[ScheduleSlip 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 ''Fanfic/CanYouImagineThat'', including a coherent timeline for the series, as well as the long-awaited rewritten version of ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesIILostAtSea''.

[[folder:Official timeline (with comments from garfieldodie)]]

There are also several {{recursive fanfic|tion}}s using the same characters, though none have been addressed by the main two authors as canon. Among these is ''Fanfic/ThePezDispenserAndTheReignOfTerror''.
!!This series is the {{Trope Namer|s}} for:
* APlanetNamedZok
!!Common tropes in the stories include:
* AdaptationExpansion: Several new characters are introduced.
* AliensAndMonsters
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: ''Every'' alien speaks English.
* AnimatedAdaptation: Most of the stories are fake ones.
* AnimeHair: A ''very'' common trope throughout the characters in the series. It's often {{lampshade|Hanging}}d as well.
* APlanetNamedZok: {{Trope Namer|s}}.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The official timeline implies that the original versions of the rewritten versions are not canon.
* DeadpanSnarker: Most of the characters.
* {{Fainting}}: Quite a lot of people faint in shock in these stories.
* {{Flanderization}}: Averted with some characters, particularly with Andy, who actually gets more interesting as the series progresses.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: "[[ Prelude to a Season]]" is entirely made to drop hints for an upcoming storyline for the (now officially canceled) Season 6 of ''The Series''. Nonetheless, later Season 5 stories seem to follow up on it.
* FrickinLaserBeams: A number of gadgets in the series have these.
* LethalLavaLand: Planet Zok.
* MediumAwareness: An odd case - since it's a ScriptFic, all the Medium Awareness moments are movie and TV show-related. It even has [[MediumAwareness/TheCalvinverse its own page!]]
* MonsterMash: ''The Luna Syndicate''. Lampshaded by Socrates.
* PostModernism: A fair amount of it.
* RayGun: A common weapon.
* RoguesGallery
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Common in Swing's writings - less so garfieldodie's, but there are a few misspellings here and there.
* {{Troperiffic}}: Oh yes. If there's a science fiction or action-related trope out there, chances are the verse will have used it.
* TheVerse
* WhamEpisode: ''FanFic/TheCollective''
* TheWikiRule: [[ A fledgling, troper-made one.]]
* WorldOfWeirdness
* YourMom: Calvin is rather fond of these types of jokes. Using examples from ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' is also common.
