    Summary

    Note - this is not a sequel to or extension of the comic strip. The underlying premise is that the characters were never denizens of a cartoon universe; they are the strip's real-world equivalents. They are late-teenaged versions of the ~7-year-olds Charlie, Lucy, Sally, Marcie and the others would have been if they were real children, not comic caricatures.

    Snoppy is just Charlie's old beagle. He does not have a complex inner life, does not have fantasies of fighting the Red Baron, does not have a little sparrow friend named Woodstock. And so on.

    ------

    The setting is the town of Hennepin Falls -- a variation on the Minnesota county of Hennepin where Charles Shulz grew up and where many believe the strip is set.

    Hennepin Falls, however, is in New York state, since that is where I always imagined the strip taking place, given Charlie's love of the Mets, or at least farm-team player Joe Shlabotnik.

    It is 1977, and Hennepin Falls, 40 miles outside of the NYC metro, is about to have its 1950s small-town bubble burst by "White Flight."

    "Hennepin Falls" is about that loss of innocence -- and yes, the other kind, too.

    Summary

    Charlie Brown, despite his clumsy and dimwitted personality, there was something lovable about the boy. Even though he was often the butt of humiliation and misfortune, he always had a little determination left in him, a little fight left to give. He didn’t give up, no matter how many times he’d been knocked off his feet. He always got back up. He was persistent, resilient. He was the true underdog story, and Schroeder admired his inner strength and perseverance, even when the whole world seemed to be against him. Schroeder had been here, complaining about a little musician’s block, allowing it to keep him from doing what he loved. And yet here was a boy who always had the rug pulled out from under him, but never did he give up, or allow the obstacles in his way to stop his passion.

    Summary

    It had always been Lucy.
    It had never been anyone else.
    Schroeder presses a full rainflower bloom to his lips once, and lets it fall from his hands back onto the piano keys.
    He sobs, for both the Lucy he had lost, and the love that had almost been requited.
    Because it had always been Lucy who had his heart - he just hadn't known it until it was too late.
