"Theories About Nuclear Winter" by hollycomb (pg13)

I feel like I should rec some Christmas fic, but I don't have any of that. In its place, nostalgia fic!

Fandom Category: Calvin & Hobbes
Pairing: Calvin/Susie
Fic Title: Theories About Nuclear Winter
Author: hollycomb
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): pg13
Genre: futurefic, angst
WIP?: No.
Special Rec: 14/20

Why This Must Be Read: Uh, it's deliciously detailed and heartbreaking Calvin & Hobbes fic? Okay, no, it's also other stuff. While I don't buy much into Calvin being a teen delinquent, this fic has Calvin disillusioned at the world: angry, confused, bored, and his first arrest under his belt. But it wasn't his fault. Really. He starts noticing Susie again, the girl he used to walk to school, and she makes him want to be better. It's a touching story, one of the few to ever hit me on an emotional level, with Calvin trying to be a grown up, even though he's really still a boy, too attached to a soft toy.
