9 hours of studying and I can’t remember my own name but I can remember how to kill a man using a toothbrush so there’s that
the hell kind of classes are you taking?
I’m a forensic criminologist our slogan is “can’t run fast enough to be a serial killer so I’ll just help the police catch them”
Gross and emotionally constipated old men that try (and fail) to hide their affection towards their grandkids(/nephew/niece) are my favorite kind of character
remember that once in the late 70’s a face character for pooh at disneyland was accused of hitting a child in the face on accident and so the dude came back to court after the recess in the pooh costume and answering the questions as pooh and fucking danced in the courtroom in order to prove that the arms were too high up to hit the kid and he was acquitted within 20 minutes
That’s some Phoenix Wright shit right there, I swear
more antigravity dipper and wendy haha
OH NO WHAT HAVE YOU DONE THAT’S ADORABLE
gravity falls TOTAL DYNAMIC CHANGE dipper and mabel are locals living with grunkle stan (dead parents??) wendy’s the one visiting for the summer she’s still an easy-going tomboy he’s still awkward and sweaty mabel has mastered dual-wielding bedazzled grappling hooks wendy finds the journal one wander through the woods and she knows dipper’s p much like dib levels fanatic about Weird Stuff but maybe she likes keeping secrets or through some shenanigans broke something important when she found the journal so she’s reluctant to admit the discovery so she gives dipper hints here and there feigning them as guesses or jokes and she’s always out on her own discovery gravity falls’ wonders oh my god oh my god squishing my face with delight over this au
(apologies to frenchfrycoolguy for the repeat notifications on this) I had actually figured that Dipper would still be from out-of-town, probably working at the Mystery Shack because no employers in his actual hometown would put up with “his crazy conspiracies” and/or near-narcolepsy (and either Mabel came along out of solidarity or his unhireability rubbed off on his twin*), and Wendy would be local! BUT YEAH WENDY COMPLETELY. WAS AT LEAST BREAKING SOME VERY NON-NEGOTIABLE RULES, IF SOMETHING WASN’T BROKEN. AND PROBABLY PUTTING HERSELF IN BODILY DANGER. She doesn’t latch on to the “trust no one” message as quickly as original-universe Dipper does, since she’s less of an outsider (I think hence Soos being trusted to know about it), but until Dipper comes along she doesn’t know anyone in town who would take the journal seriously or appreciate it the way she does.
*Alternately, Mabel’s mastery of the bedazzled grappling hooks came on the heels of one or more locally-infamous incidents.
these r all such neat ideas !!
in antigravity, dipper and mabel grew up in gravity falls but moved out when they were young, only to come back and stay with/work for stan during the summers (although dipper and mabel do know about the journals (ar at leats one of them), haha…the journal wendy finds is one that dipper hid in order to keep bill from getting it„,or that’s the short version, anyway)
i love this idea for how wendy finds the journal : O such cute characterizations, too !!
i rly like the idea of mabel’s reputation preceding her, haha !!
!!! I’m glad you like them—and thanks for the clarifications! You mentioned Dipper forgetting why he’d hidden the journal though… was that through Bill’s interference? And how many more of his memories of Gravity Falls and its weirdness were lost, if any?
augh god i rly wanna do a short comic about dipper finding out that wendy found his journal
like i wanna flip between a conversation between mabel and wendy about what bad news the journal is and how fucked everything is about to be
and like dipper having a crisis because he cant actually remember where or why he hid the journal until sUDDEN BILL APPEARANCE
i wanna do it
