For real, oh man oh man.

And the next episode is called "Not What He Seems" and the code at the end of this episode was "Stan is not what he seems". Which, by now, we as the audience already knows that Stan is up to something big, so I'm wondering if Dipper and Mabel will find out about the portal. o.o

Also, omg I love this gif it is beautiful!

Oh cool, someone made a gif of that! The only thing that's still a bit questionable is the glasses being Stan's twin but it's a theory I find very possible and support. Although I think a possible brother being named Stanley is incredibly dumb and would be a bit lazy of Alex. So if he does in fact have a brother then his name is probably something different.

I agree with that theory too! But I do think his name will be Stanley because there is a ton of clues that point to that. Bill called Stan by the name of Stanley at one point, even tho we all know Stan's full name is Stanford. Plus, Stan's license plate says "STNLYMBL" which why would it say that instead of like "STNFDMBL", unless it wasn't his car but his brother's?

I don't think it's lazy tho, that kind of stuff happens in real life where twins get named similar names, and I think Alex could have done that to trick the audience into thinking that any time a Stan is mentioned that it's Grunkle Stan, but it's actually his brother.

Unless Stan isn't the real Grunkle Stan and the real one is lost in the other dimension or something o.o Which would explain why he felt the need to hide the glasses when Dipper asked about them.

Maybe Stanley was just another name Stan was called either as a mistake or just by certain people? Maybe he preferred being called Stanley when he was younger or something. I dunno. I just don't think that's really good enough evidence that he had a brother named Stanley. Although I still think he may have had a brother. Heck Stanley could be his father's name for all we know.

You may have a point. What if this Stan we know is from another dimension and there was another Stan from this dimension. The one from ours was named Stanley and the one from another dimension was Stanford? Gosh dang it I love this alternate reality stories too much.

Speaking of alternate stuff, what other AU's are there in the fandom? I know of Monster Falls and Reverse Pines but there are more right?

There's more evidence than that xD There are so many videos on that topic lol.

There was one called Anti Gravity Falls where Dipper, Mabel, and Pacifica are the teenagers and Wendy, Robbie, and Soos and are the kids.



This image makes me happy now knowing that Wendy would most definitely have a crush on Dipper since her lil self thought that Dipper was cute in the time baby episode xD

Ooh, I could totally dig the Anti Gravity Falls. Great fan art up there, almost looks official. And lil Wendy liking Dipper in the Time Baby episode was adorable and amusing, especially as I was once a Wendip fan.

I just really wanna see how the AU fanart/fanfics introduce Dippica now that it has some establishment in canon.

Know any good AU fanfics?

Well I can't blame ya, it's kinda a wild card cuz some fics are Billdip or Pinecest. Blech.

Oh, there's one more AU that I totally forgot, and that's Transcendence. I'm not sure I understand it much though.

Found a description of it!

"The Transcendence AU is a Fan Verse of Gravity Falls, in which a plot by Bill Cipher to unite the dream realm and the physical realm was foiled by Dipper and Mabel. The end of the world was prevented but the two worlds crossed over slightly, breaking the barriers around Gravity Falls and unleashing the weirdness on the rest of the world. Bill, severely weakened, sought refuge by possessing Dipper - a plan that backfired spectacularly when his demonic energy became fused to Dipper instead, killing Bill and causing Dipper to transform into a demon. Dipper retained his human form, but since he existed only in the mindscape, only Mabel could see him at first. He holds a greater affinity for the material plane and is less affected by normal demonic constraints due to his human origins, resulting in him becoming an incredibly powerful entity in a relatively short period of time.
This Verse tends to deal with the aftermath of these events, known as the Transcendence, particularly years or decades into the future, and a large portion of the fanworks are considered canon within the AU or could easily fit into it."

Yep, still don't completely get it. Sounds cool, but maybe a little too intense. I just can't get into fics with such different styles from their predecessors when I'm so used to the actual franchise's style.

I agree. It feels way too cut off from the actual story for me to enjoy it. xD

Also, I'm working on this :3c

I wish I could get into fics and feed my obsessions all the more, but I'm just not a fanfic fan. Sometimes reading fics just makes my obsessions sizzle out that much faster for some odd reason.

Oooh, I'm liking it so far. That's when she's tying his bowtie right?

Aww, that sucks xD;

Thank you! :3c But no, it's not when she's tying his bow tie, it's the part after the taxidermy heads start chanting and she grabs him like "What do we do?!" and he's like "Don't worry, it can't get worse than this." and then the ghost comes out of the fire place x3

I really need to catch up on Gravity Falls, it's one of my favorite shows. The last episode I saw was when Wendy finally went on an adventure with them, only to be REALLY RAD and there was that copy monster thing.

Yeah, the airing schedule is really weird and we usually only get one to two episodes a month. So you'll have time to catch up x3

Dipper sounds 18, his voice is insane.

I keep going in the back of my head "Why do people keep shipping these characters in that kind of way, they're like twelve and the audience doing it is generally way older" and then I see a clip and it's just like "Oh. Oh it's because they're children in art-style only. Oh."

Is nobody else thrown off, even at all?
AV IS FLAWLESS
I HEAR HIS SNARK IS INSURED FOR 10000 DOLLARS
I HEAR HE MAKES AVATAR COMMERCIALS IN TIAWAN
ONE TIME HE HIT ON ME
...IT WAS AWESOME

Yeah Dipper's voice does sound older than he is, and it was weird at first, but I got used to it really fast xD

Also I have no idea what you mean by the shipping, like are you weirded out by them being shipped together because they're 12? Aang was 12 too and being shipped with Katara and other characters his age (mostly) xD Plus there's tons of other shows with 12/13ish characters being shipped so I don't really see a problem with it as long as you're not drawing/writing porn of them.

Hey to be fair I've seen younger kids be shipped together without it being all that weird. Codename Kids Next Door for example. They were all like 10 and Numbuh 1 had a girlfriend, Numbuh 3 and 4 constantly had evidence that showed they like eachother, Numbuh 5 had a thing for a 13 year old guy, heck even 86 had a brief romance with a dude from the past and admitted once that she thought 4 was cute.

And let's not forget Hey Arnold. Arnold and Helga were both 9 and she was absolutely in love with him. It wasn't even puppy love, that girl understood and felt real love, even if at the time it was a tad creepy. XD

Plenty of people have been thrown off but I frankly don't see the problem. Most of us don't want Pacifica and Dipper to be freaking married and have kids.. yet. We just like that the show acknowledges that they could end up liking eachother. I'm actually perfectly fine with them being friends who have cute moments and hints.
