Don't screw up the OP.
basically a /gfg/ maymay to blame Alex for anything they find wrong with GF, like animation errors, lack of shipping/character development, you name it.
Obligatory chub post.
I still can't believe we have to resort to
"The Show That Must Not Be Named Here"once GF is done.
Alright, you've got my attention. See, here's a picture of him from NYCC 2015. You can clearly see that there's no gap there...
However, here's a pic from 2012, that does show a gap. What's going on? Does Alex have a secret twin brother or something?
It seems far fetched, but he might have a dentist or something magical like that.
Either Alex has snaggleteeth you can only see at certain angles, or he's really missing one and he usually wears a partial plate or a removable implant.
Looks more like the former, though, going by >>78200416. I had gaps just like that before I got my braces.
Dipper's lining is coming along well, there's a few spots I'll go back and fix though.
>tfw we'll never get a live action Gravity Falls 60 minute series produced by Hirsch and Guillermo Del Toro on ABC (something needs to be on while Once Upon A Time goes on a break)
>tfw we'll never see that one kid from Iton Man 3 and Jurrasic World as Dipper with some unknown child star as Mabel
>tfw we'll never see Bryan Cranston as both Stan and Ford
>tfw we'll never see that one chick from Divergent/The Fault In Our Stars as Wendy
>tfw we'll never see Gabriel Iglesias as Soos
>tfw there'll be no Hirsch reprising his role as Bill Cipher
>tfw there'll be no season finale stinger when Gideon and the portal are introduced
>tfw there'll be no fall finale where Ford is introduced
>tfw there'll be no 2nd season cliffhanger where Bill wrecks shit
Why even live?
>Walter White as Stan and Ford
>Gabriel Iglesias as Soos
>multiple shirtless shots of Gabriel Iglesias
>Alex Hirsch voicing Bill again
>Del Toro producing
Why do I want this shit sooo bad?
This sounds like Once Upon A Time, but good.
Also, replace Tris with that big sister from The Goldbergs and we got ourselves a triple A cast
Finally finished! And according to this >>/co/78198305 it took me just under 6 hours. I can't believe it took that long, but I think the outcome is amazing. I'm proud of how it turned out.
If you see any issues or things I should fix, tell me and I'll try, but I'm afraid the hand on the journal is as good as I can get it, I spent around 5-10 minutes trying to make it as good as I could.
Alternate coloring versions soon!
anon who wanted Dipper smiling, I got you covered
Thanks, didn't even have to do it myself, I was planning on having his closed eye be somewhat open too, peeking, but that's pretty much what my continuing edit would have resulted in.
>this not being used
I am disapointed
I'd love if some of this stuff was reused in the credits of the finale or something, like in movies when characters dance around the credits.
That's probably my favorite deleted scene.
Zombie Invasion color version.
Not sure what this setup would be, Maybe Mabel grappling to the top of the shack or something.
DIPPER, THE SHOW DOESN'T CARE ABOUT ME EVER SINCE I REJECTED YOU, I'M UNIMPORTANT, SAVE MEEEEEE
If Dipper can hold her up, it's
still not a possibility
Glad I got my animation stuff working out, might make some more stuff later. Wish I would have been able to move the grappling hook but there was an issue with the layers.
Speaking of drawfags, did this anon ever do anything else besides the GF/Pokemon pics? I know at the time he said they were the first he ever did for /gfg/.
I didn't. I lurk in the evenings and sometimes post, but I don't have much time. If I draw something, it's mostly for myself, not /gfg/.
Here have a little something.
Aw, thank you!
Glad you're still hanging around. I understand not having the time or desire to draw stuff for /gfg/ (one should always draw for their own pleasure first, I believe), but I still want you to know that you made an impression and are remembered.
Probably the last one until I can decide on something else to do. I don't want to be too repetitive, but I want to keep having versions with spirit. I was going to have a "Attic Bedroom" lighting version, but I might save that for later.
This one's nice though.
Oh gosh, anon, you make me feel so much better.
I am currently fighting with my thesis (thesis is winning), so any bit of positivity helps. And I am actually happy with those two doodles, I will keep them.
You know it.
I'm so happy draw-anon did this request for me.
forgot the cigar tho
lol thanks. My tablet's pressure is fucked up for some reason so it's really half assed
This question made me laugh for some reason lol
I am not a 4chan regular. The only times I used 4chan was to browse the cute male category when I was 14. I doubt I'll continue to visit when the /gfg/ threads become idle.
I got into Gravity Falls in June after watching SU and thinking that it was pretty fun, and was curious to know what other cartoons are popular right now. Needless to say I became hooked from the first episode lol
I was not posting my art on the internet before (except for a few things I made) because I lack confidence. After browsing Reddit I saw people speaking about how terrible the community in 4chan is so I was curious and came here. I was banned in my second day due to posting porn (I think it's hilarious). I thought it was a good way to overcome my fears of posting drawings online because it is anonymous, and I enjoy doodling things for my friends. Later I started uploading more to my secondary blog and I just ended up stuck here. Your jokes/way of speaking is hilarious to me and I quote things to people everyday. Thanks for caring! lol
>Came here because reddit said we were terrible
You're good people Dominica.
Not that anon, but Jesus Chambrot is the only true live action option for Soos. If Alex taught himself how to voice act (well, sort of), Chambrot could do okay with a few lessons under his belt. R-right?
But seriously. I'd prefer a younger Latino comedian who looks a little more like Soos. Maybe an unknown. Iglesias is pushing 40, and the shape of his face and nose is all wrong. I understand wanting to cast a talented comedian, but he doesn't seem like a particularly good fit aside from his weight (which why all the fat chaser are panting after him, I gather?).
You're a great asset to /gfg/
Thank you! (⌯˃̶᷄ ﹏ ˂̶᷄⌯)ﾟ For some reason the post sounded like I use the place for my tumblr's self promotion
I am not good at paraphrasing...The main thing is that it helps me battle though depression and abuse. I screen most of the nice things for motivation to keep drawing. I am here because I like Gravity Falls and drawings things. Sorry!
Haha does the perspective really matter? I thought the sideview is giving this more depth. What do you want to see?
You definitely helped me too. You actually inspired me to get into creative works of my own. One of your pictures you did for me actually inspired me to do a fanfic based off of it.
Thanks a lot, genuinely! It's nice to finally do writing again.
Don't be sorry, I wasn't trying to call you out or anything. I'm just curious.
4chan can often be a kind of insular community, and the rest of the internet tries pretty hard to push people away from us. I'm always interested in how people end up on 4chan, but the nature of the site doesn't lend itself to having that discussion.
This was the relevant picture, yes I was that anon.
anyone else hoping for a rick and morty crossover
>I was not posting my art on the internet before (except for a few things I made) because I lack confidence.
>I thought it was a good way to overcome my fears of posting drawings online because it is anonymous
It's always nice to hear when 4chan manages to make a positive impact on someone's life for a change. I used to have a lot of anxiety about posting anything online, too. Being able to blend in with a faceless mob, and getting positive responses from complete strangers, was downright therapeutic for me.
I hope the confidence you gain from here sticks with you even after /gfg/ is gone, because it would be a real shame not to share your talent with the world.
> After browsing Reddit I saw people speaking about how terrible the community in 4chan is so I was curious and came here.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if that's how a lot of regulars found /gfg/. Every time /r/GravityFalls bitches about us, it's good advertising for drawing in users sick of reddit's restrictive culture.
>The only times I used 4chan was to browse the cute male category
Man, I miss when /cm/ was active. It used to be a pretty nice board, but it was gutted by an exodus to tumblr or something. It's a ghost town on par with /y/ these days.
I'm going to read this tomorrow and post an opinion here so watch out (Y) *bookmarks*
Honestly 4chan is great due to its availability of free speech. On tumblr and reddit, or other public forums it's very easy to attract large masses of hatred and ironically, cruelty, for stating something that is considrably an unpopular opinion. (pointing out to tumblr's horrifying nature of hating the different.)
What I like about 4chan is the fact that it's okay to see pretty much everything without concequeces. The last time I tried to discuss touchy subjects with my irl friends ( they are a bunch of tumblrinas sadly.) things became very dramatic and grim. I guess /gfg/ is nicer in general because GF itself, especially with the adult viewers, require some sort of an intellectualic skill to actually become obsessed with it, refering to the brainstorming ideas and theories people used to discuss. So most of the peeps here are pretty quality, in my opinion. Sometimes I wished this place was an irc chat lol
>Gravity Falls will never be the same. After Weirdmageddon, the Pines family took it all over. Today it looks like Mabeland. And while my guys play cardboard monstrosities, 8ball and Pyronica drop the dimension payments and Hectorgon's dementia training money on the test your manliness slots. In the old days, townfolks knew your name, what you ate, who you killed. Today, it's like checking into reality. And if you order mass slavery, you're lucky if you get it by Thursday. Today, it's all gone. You get an abomination show up with four million in a suitcase, and some twelve-years-old school kid is gonna want his multiverse Number. After the Teamsters got knocked out of the box, the Pines tore down practically every one of the old madness bubbles. And where did the money come from to rebuild the fearamids? Junk bonds. But in the end, I wound up right back where I started. I could still pick suckers, and I could still make deals with all kinds of people back home. And why mess up a good thing?
I am not using reddit. Sorry.
Lol I could do that, but I'm really close to going to sleep so I could pospne this and requests for tomorrow.
Tumblr offers right now this cool feature of speaking directly to someone, you could messege me anytime if you wanna give it an ear or chat in general. I'd hate making this a dominica general board lolol
Yeah, I totally understand your point, I take this also as some sort of therapy. Thank you so much for being this kind to me! I really appreciate it! QQ
nowadays I mostly follow pixiv artists directly or artists on fb. I guess tumblr is a good alternative in a way to mash these all together into one place.
>they still need to send the episode to disney, who will censor whatever sociopathic murdering of 12 year olds he tries to sneak in (jokes aside, censorship hasnt been bad but those things take a while)
I can't tell how much of this post is serious, butS&P does its thing before the episode is complete, not after. They vet the storyboards and scripts in advance.
If he really finished working on the episode for good, it was probably the final pass of ADR work. So everything else is already animated and recorded, and they're just doing the final mixing now.
I do question why they're still working on it at all, though. I'd like to say they were worried about leaks and deliberately left some things to the last minute. But maybe they really just are that slow.
IRC chat, wow. I haven't used that in years. Maybe someone should set one up, a place to go once /gfg/ is gone, should they desire it. Sappy to say, but I really do enjoy the company here.
didnt know that, but disney is going to want at least a month of advertising, and i dont see any sign of it coming in january. sorry for the deleted post by the way, zach whitchurch must be being a faggot again.
Same. Imagine if we'd have a safe place to go to when these threads are over. Not only to speak about gf but also to get to know each other.
I liked TMoGF's suggestion about airing the episode on February 29th for novelty's sake. Not too far off in the future, but it lets Disney get their advertising in and gives them a couple more months to push GF merch. It even falls on a Monday.
Also, holy fuck, I don't want to wait until spring or something. The way Disney is talking makes me nervous.
>Not too far off in the future
That's almost March, anon. Fuck no.
I'm used to even longer hiatuses in other fandoms, so it doesn't seem as bad to me, I guess. To put it in GF terms, though, it would be close to the length of time between the airing of NWHS and AToTS. That's not terrible compared to past hiatuses.
And let's not forget who we're talking about here. I'd like to think Disney will realize they're just killing the hype if they drag it out too long, but I'm not that optimistic. Gotta prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
Pacifica was fine until Dipper showed up and exposed the horrible truth to her
People forget that. Dipper is the cool one with her.
I'd be happy inside Pyronica, if you know what I mean.
But she showed that she didn't want to become like her parents, who knew damn well their lineage's crimes and were content to gloss over them. She could've immediately ripped up and ignored the paper Dipper gave her that showed the truth, but she didn't.
Even in the game she was still hung up on the hug she gave Dipper, despite her saying that she was just caught up in the moment at the time.
>I'm sure he'd be happy to be inside her.
Really been digging the Superpowers AU forming here.
Also found some Reverse Falls Weirdmageddon art. I guess Reverse Weirdmageddon is where Will finally snaps and kicks the evil twins' butts.
>the boy who sang the Kidz Bop version of Fetty Wap's Trap Queen as Gideon
>imagine him dressing up the part
>mfw this is perfect casting
It's just what it sounds like, Mr. Fancy Man Sitting In Yer Chair! It's an AU where everyone has superpowers. I'm not the anon who's been compiling everything, but here's his posts from the last thread:
Those posts and their replies are about everything we've got so far.
I'm not seriously suggesting this, but consider for a moment if Mabel's super power was that she could make anyone fall in love with her.
I know you guys hated the love god, just shut up and bear with me.
There would be no way around the end game. Mabel sitting on a throne with the entire Gravity Falls cast surrounding her and tending her every need.
It'd still be cute.
So where will Alex go after GF, I may follow depending on how the ending goes..
They keep talking about how much she wants to leave Gravity Falls. Do a series where she moves to Seattle or Portland and investigates Mysteries or fights Aliens. And who knows, maybe her best friends teenage Dipper and Mabel will stop by
I'm glad someone's enjoying it. I'd like to thank the anon who first mentioned a Superpower AU, and inspiring me to collect together ideas as well as coming up with some of my own.
If there's anything you'd like to suggest, feel free. Right now I need some good ideas for Ford, and some more details for Soos, which is currently "innate understanding of all technology, a la Forge". I'd also like to ask everyone if the previously mentioned two-tier system is a good idea, or should be tossed out.
Dipper and Mabel are going to cameo in Youkai watch 3, calling it now!
I was expecting a ton of crossover stuff between GF and YW.
but nobody did any.
Stuff I want from the finale that I won't get:
- good Stan and Ford resolution
- Ford apologizes to Stan for being an asshole
- Mabel apologizes to Dipper for being an asshole
- Wendy dumps Robbie for good and moves to Portland
- Candy does something useful
- Grenda beats up the bad guys
- Pyronica has a line
- Bill becomes a competent villain again, has a "just as planned" moment
- the Cipher Wheel actually means something
- status quo is permanently changed
- Stan saves the day
- Pines parents faces' shown
- Giffany has a cameo
>tfw no chance any of this will happen
I'm glad to hear that, even though it may make fleshing out some of the details a little more difficult. I wanted this to be /gfg/'s AU and not my own, but I do admittedly have concepts that I personally prefer.
I'd like for anons to be able to vote on some things, but I'm not yet sure how well that would work out.
ctrl+F "sweaterverse" it was an old AU /gfg/ came up with.
People speculate he'll be working with Justin Roiland on either Rick and Morty, or the new show Roiland is working on.
>- Wendy dumps Robbie for good and moves to Portland
She dumped him in season 1 bro.
I think there's a pretty good chance of
>- Grenda beats up the bad guys
>- Pyronica has a line
Grenda's with the other survivors, and she's already played that role twice (in DD&MD and TLM). At this point, I'd be more impressed if they did something else with her. Especially since she's redundant on a team with Wendy, Stan, and Soos. There's probably a fair chance of Candy doing something quirky but useful, too.
Pyronica will almost certainly get background lines similar to the ones she had in Weirdmageddon and EfR.
>- Mabel apologizes to Dipper for being an asshole
>- Bill becomes a competent villain again, has a "just as planned" moment
Those are the least likely, in my opinion. Mabel already apologized to Dipper at the end of EfR. Unless Bill guilts her to the point where she remembers handing over the Rift and confesses that to Dipper, I can't see them rehashing that scene.
And, sadly, Bill was way too flustered by the barrier for this to all be a master keikaku. There was no need to fake upset when he was alone.
She was a blank slate, more or less, and tied to one of the main characters in a way that seemed like she might be important later. Given the lack of adult female characters, it's not so surprising a lot of fans projected what they wanted onto her.
>And, sadly, Bill was way too flustered by the barrier for this to all be a master keikaku. There was no need to fake upset when he was alone.
Unless he's using his 'friends' too but unfortunately I don't think that'll happen.
>She dumped him in season 1 bro.
I feel like he didn't really get the message.
Okay, so putting aside the question of whether this is real concept art from the series finale or just fan made, do you think this is all going to come down to a big Dipper vs. Bill showdown, or will Stan and Mabel actually get to do something?
There are three main characters on the show (Dipper, Mabel, Stan) but I feel like lately Stan and Mabel don't do shit. I'll be sad if this is a half hour or whatever Dipper vs. Bill fight and they do nothing again.
>ctrl+F "sweaterverse" it was an old AU /gfg/ came up with.
Thanks for sharing that, I didn't realize we already had an AU born here. You aren't, by any chance, suggesting that I shouldn't be trying to put together this new one, are you? I honestly don't want to be rambling on if I'm going to annoy the general.
Grenda seems like a bruiser to me. Super strength?
Candy is a musician. Sound based powers? Like Black Canary?
Going off the "zombie robbie" thing, maybe he has some sort of necromancy themed abilities?
I definitely don't think the finale be reduced to Dipper vs Bill. Honestly, I believe it will be a family endeavor, backed up by some of the regulars.
If Stan doesn't get to kick ass, I'll cry.
Grenda is definitely the brawler type, but she kind of already has some degree of super strength, so...how about being an "immovable object" or having some kind of gravity field? I don't know, that's something to think about.
Love the idea of Candy having a sound/music-based power.
Robbie...having an ability centering around zombies or the dead in general seems kind of obvious, but I'm not sure what's the best direction to go with it.
Candy seems to be more of the gadget type though. She seemed to be more interested in creating things, and learning how things work rather than music. She could be a gadget girl with her own inventions.
Robbie could have some sound based abilities. Maybe moderate hypnosis by playing his guitar or being able to summon zombies by playing.
So, something more like Gear from Static Shock for Candy, or more like a traditional gadgeteer? I'm hesitant to go too far in the direction of inventor, since we already have McGucket and presumably Ford. Maybe for a compromise she can have as one of her abilities "hyperthought", able to process info and come up with solutions to problems with a superhuman speed? Like an uber-MacGuyver . Still like the idea of some connection to sound, though.
Music does fit Robbie's personality fairly well, and both hypnosis and the undead relate to his character.
but this reminds me, where's all the art of older Mabel with big breasts?
Decided to tackle this image tonight, just like the "Grappling Hook!" image yesterday, this one might take longer because more details and I still need to figure out what some of the things in Bill's design are. I see the "Who's The Author" paper, some hands, a zombie, a hand with an eye on it, and that's about it.
Yea, also, I didn't make these sketches, they're from one of the staff members. (just clearing up for future reference, meant to put it in the original post)
Thanks, and the fact it's more rough is kind of complicated to work with, Mabel was fine (see progress picture) and Dipper probably will be too, but the journal and Bill's part will probably give me some issues. The one from yesterday was pretty easy.
>Your jokes/way of speaking is hilarious to me and I quote things to people everyday
This stood out.
I hate /gfg/ and most of what you stand for (other than Mabel bashing) since GF threads turned into a legitimate general. Thing is though, I'm still oddly proud that I was around to see every post in the /gfg/ thread simulator videos as it happened.
Cunts here say some funny shit or at least they used to.
Dipper and the Journal's section have been finished. If I can get Bill's part to work, that's next, if not, then it'll be a transparent version of the twins.
It came out odd, but this is the gist of what Bill's portion should look like.
With the darker lines, it looks kind of like the bottom right corner of the triangle is a SotBE member wearing his hood, with his hand raised sideways over his face. Might be misreading that, though. It's a shame the original outline wasn't more polished.
I saw the hand and the sleeve, but I finished before I saw your comment of the face it's covering. I'm not sure if that's what it's doing, but the sleeve and hand are there.
Like this? I just finished. I did this before I saw your post as well. There's coloring there where I could tell there was an object.
This is just version 1.
Yeah, I see that, and the figure's left shoulder and robe as well. But it could be one of those things where you see what you're expecting to see--pareidolia, apparently?
>they all mention Time Baby being the biggest thing ever plot wise
No doubt they're all recycling the same bullshit sources. Crappy news sites tend to cannibalize each others' articles. I haven't seen a single one that cited something new about Time Baby from a reliable source. It's all wild speculation based on the same set of old quotes.
>. But pretending “Weirdmageddon Part 3” is anything more than a glib facsimile of “Twin Peaks,” the original mystery series, is delusional.
That's decent pasta, but
>part III will be Dipper fighting his way through Bill's version of
the Black Lodge, only to receive a bad end and an unresolved possession for his efforts
sounds pretty cool, though.
That's how I know it won't happen.
MABEL IS A PART OF THE SOCIETY OF THE BLINDEYE.
LEAK LEAK LEAK
>readily fluent, often thoughtlessly, superficially, or insincerely so
>an exact copy or reproduction
A superficial or shallow emulation, in other words. Not that it makes much sense in this context.
Yeah it's obviously never going to happen but even a straight-up rip-off of the Twin Peaks ending on a Disney children's cartoon would be fucking great just for the WTF factor.
Is this pasta from here or a find and replace review of another real series?
There's a little joke about how Time Baby will eventually put himself back together in 1,000 years in the credits, one shitty article mis interpreted it as him coming back in the finale and other shitty articles by people who have also never seen the show are cannibalizing it.
Yes, but Time Baby is fucking awful as a serious element, and no one wants his Deus Ex Babby ass back in the story in any significant capacity. The conflict needs to be resolved by the main characters, not by a running gag.
>we will never have a zoo episode
>we will never have a Christmas episode

>mfw Dipper defeats Bill with a Love and Friendship Speech
>Dipper has a "I learned something this summer" speech at the end
>You can't stop us, Bill, because we have one thing you'll never have: friends. Friends and family. Okay, that's two things. Never mind. The point is, if there's one thing I've learned this summer, it's that no matter how much you want to fuck your sister, you still shouldn't do it. Why? Well, I think it's illegal for one thing, but also, think about it. She might have incest babies with six fingers, whoa, sorry Uncle Ford - no offense. I mean sure, you'd love the kids anyway, and the sex with your sister would be like, super hot, but whoa, where was I going with this again?
>If there's one thing I've learned this summer, it's that you can actually sniff too many panties. It just starts off as something on the sly, you're a bit curious, and what harm could it do, really? Then, a few weeks later, you're hoarding them, squirreling them away in your backpack so you can get a whiff on the go, risking discovery. And then you need more panties, different sizes and smells from different girls. It takes over your life, man. You do not wanna go there.
>If there's one thing I've learned this summer, it's that no matter how many times you overhear your Grunkles having sweaty, drunken, disturbing sex downstairs, you never mention it to anyone. You keep it on the downlow, man. Smile, smile, and pretend, even to yourself. Push it into that tiny, frightened place in the back of your mind that you never want to visit. Sure, the therapy bills will be through the roof someday, and you can't look your Grunkles in the eye anymore, but what ya gonna do?
This is some quality posting
That moment you realize GIFfani was created to help Ford overcome his fears with girls, and the game was created by Bill, because Ford is a ridiculous stereotypical hikkikomori that must've been a major virgin before Bill and he met.
>HEY FORDSY. I THINK I KNOW A WAY TO HELP YOU LURE THESE OXYTOCIN PUMPED MEATBAGS ONTO YOU. YOU JUST NEED TO PSYCHOLOGICALLY MASTURBATE THEM AND TELL THEM WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR.
>HERE'S A SIMULATOR CREATED FOR SHUT-IN NERDS LIKE YOU. YOU CAN NEVER LOSE THE GIRL IN THIS ONE!
Some of her outfit designs had Bill imagery but that's all we know so far.
>If there's one thing I learned this summer, it's that the Jews did 9/11. Whoa, hold on there! I know what you're thinking, but it's cool. I'm part Jewish! So I can say that. Not all Jews are Zionists, ya know! But the ones who are used high caliber explosives and holograms of planes to take down the WTC. Jet fuel can't melt steel beams. Think about it!
All I have is this image from the guy, did he make any more or was it just random spurs of posting weird shit? I don't see anything like it on the booru
So I've read your fanfic, you talented anon! <3 and oh my god I loved it so much. I loved the way you introduced Mabel's enthusiasm at the beginning and Dipper felt like himself unlike in many other fanfics I've read.
Dipper's awkwardness is love. I am a sucker for shy/awkward guys and you totally nailed Dipper's character in this.
What I loved the most is Mabel's dedication to her brother's wellness and how she invests her time into helping him and improve his skills with the girl. Also, kudos for the little mermaid reference (Y) (Y) (Y)
It's so hard to describe how much I love how you made a build up to things. I did not expect Dip to end up so unlucky lolol I'm sorry but the addition to how he was circled and being humilliated and photo'd was just PERFECT. I always thought his birthmark was his "object of mockery" but unfortunately they never showed it on actual episodes. Not even in Escape from Reality. You somehow created a closure to me with this lololol
And the last part where they both end up dateless and just decide to spend the moment together instead is soooo adorable. It's so innocent and heartwarming. Mabel was just so adorable throughout the whole thing. (almost better than the actual canon Mabel imo lol)
Ahhh so much to love about this thank you so much for sharing this and please write more ;; Also, this reminded me I still have the mini-comic I made for you of Dip reading a bedtime story to Mabel that I need to finish. I wonder how Dip would actually respond to a "girlz magazine" now lolol
Your praise genuinely means a lot, especially since you indiirectly encouraged me to do this sort of stuff in my spare time, and definitely made me feel better. I haven't done much writing in years, so you've definitely encouraged me to break out of my mould
I'm currently working on an AU about Weirdmaggedon Part 2, where the Bubble is much more aggressive and personal in trying to make Dipper succumb to it. The pace of writing has been glacial on account of test revision, fitness training, job interviews, etc. But I've made a commitment to have it done by the New Year.
It's very easy to write for Dipper, for me at least, because I see so much of him in myself.
Ahhhhh ;; Just please share it here/with me please because it sounds great, I'm looking forward to read it! <333333
Dipper is a character with a really dynamic personality in a way, unlike the other characters in the show in my opinion, so that really makes him relateable. But not everyone can write him in a beliveable, in-character way. And this is coming from someone who have read quite an amount of Dipper involving fanfics so you gotta take my word haha
>OH MY GOD HOW MUCH LONGER IS THIS FUCKING TRIAL I HAVE PLACES TO BE FUCKING GUILTY SON OF A BITCH TAKING UP MY TIME
I wish I could share it, but I frequently edit my beginnings after I'm done, and I am very much someone who wants to always deliver a finished product. Rest assured, I'll post it on /gfg/ when it's done.
Anyone notice Bill's wheel on the playground with triangles and a square in the middle?
>Ford doesn't like Dipper and Mabel's bond, it's obvious
>Dipper tells Ford he's not going to stay with him and keep his legend alive, instead he's going to be by his sister's side
>Ford gets pissed and a fight happens
I'd pay money, and it'd be the only good outcome of Dipper giving up those chances.
>Ford backhands Mabel
Stan would break out the brass knuckles on Ford. That would be pretty great.
That'd actually be great.
At this point, I feel like Ford is going to be most useful as an unwitting villain. So sure that his way is right that he's blind to his wrongs. As it's been so far, he's just been a very bland MacGuffin delivery system.
>Ford lays a hand on the children
>Stan go full berserk
If this happened, we could never call Alex a hack again, it'd make up for most cop-outs we argue about. It'd be freaking awesome.
If it doesn't happen, someone atleast make a comic out of it, like, Dipper telling him, and it escalating to this.
I can see it now
>Dipper tells him, probably wording it a little wrong like he did with Gideon breaking up with him for Mabel
>Ford takes this hard
>He hits Mabel or Dipper
>They fall, and has their hand on their cheeck/forehead
>They move their hand to reveal a scratch mark or a little blood
>there's a pause
>Stan sees this and a fight happens
>yfw Stan is the one who kills Ford
How is that bad writing? He's said before, if the kids get hurt on his watch, he wouldn't know what to do. He cares deeply about the twins, if Ford hit them, he'd fucking knock his shit out to protect them.
If Bill doesn't use that and Mabel making that deal to drive apart Ford from his family then Alex is a genuine hackwriter who should do Episode VIII
It'd ridden explain why Bill has no issue with Gideon failing and the twins reuniting since he had that up his sleeve.
>tfw Dipper couldn't have killed Mabel
I don't think Ford is going to die though. I mean they let the Spider lady get away even though she was going to kill other men. Why should Ford be punished that way for the bad things he's done?
Don't forget the
>Maybe someone needs to come out of retirement
That just screams "Ford is gonna join Bill and fuck Dipper and Mabel's shit up".
I noticed, Bill seems to keep getting bigger. Aside from the fact the character's heights fluctuate depending on the scene, do you guys think the "every minute Bill's getting stronger" line plays into this? It's been 4 days since the event started, 4 FUCKING DAYS.
Stanley is the one who falls to emotion and acts differently under pressure or confrontation, not Ford.
It just wouldn't make sense for Ford to hit either of the twins. He's still aware that he's responsible for their safety as well.
Uh, not so fast anon.
We hardly know anything about Ford. He's only talked to Mabel once, and recently they've been focusing on the fact he thinks Mabel is a foil to Dipper and is holding him back from his true purpose in life, becoming JUST LIKE HIM.
I could see this man accidentally become filled with anger and do something. It doesn't mean he did it on purpose, he could have done it out of "spur of the moment" or whatever. He's been shown to be cold-hearted at times.
It seems hard to think about him hitting a child, but we know nothing of his personality along those roads.
>Stanley is the one who falls to emotion and acts differently under pressure or confrontation, not Ford.
Like when he walked up to his own twin brother who was smiling with open arms and punched him in the fucking face? Ford isn't a Jedi. His anger at Stan over the science fair has affected how he acts towards people for over forty years. Not burning the journals and dismantling the portal was not the logical thing to do. Ford was too proud of his work to throw it away even though Bill was after him for weeks, maybe months just trying to get him turned on.
True. I forgot that due to Dipper, his journals were burned. I'm re-reading the Tale of Two Stans transcript and the first thing Ford does when he is saved is punches Stan in the face.
I wonder if that'll happen again when he gets saved from being a gold statue.
Still can't see him hitting or pushing a kid though.
Pretty sure there's a connection with Ford not wanting Stan to burn the journals, but then after he gives them to Dipper it happens anyway. Why else would Ford have given the journals to Dipper? Because the plot had to happen that way. It can be assumed it was for Dipper to protect himself with, but it never happened in the episode, and usually the episodes follow a straight-forward plot like that.
As long as the seatbelts are on, anything is possible!
I completely forgot how Ford will react to his research burned along with the Rift. I couldn't imagine him joining Bill, but what other things could he do besides throwing a tantrum?
You are in charge of a Gravity Falls spin off without Alex. Stan is dead and you can only use one character originally voiced by Alex voiced by a great soundalike. What is the new series about?
That's actually retarded
>Stan and Mabel hit Dipper on the regular
>nobody gives a shit
>Ford hits Mabel
>everyone goes apeshit
You know what, the show's writing has deteriorated enough that I would believe that.

this was posted by staff member Chris Houghton on Tumblr.
He'll probably receive his life lesson before that reveal.
And then say how it doesn't matter anymore, as long as his family is safe.
Ford's symbol is the six fingered hand from the journal, so his goal would be to move on from the journals.
It doesn't matter if they dad malicious intent or not. Plus, that's not even true; Mabel hits Dipper in Summerween out of anger.
More importantly, who hit you anon? It's okay you can talk about it here
Better that than them suffering through their divorce. It'd be neat if the twins were forced seperated despite all they went through. They eventually meet again years later and you know the cest
So for the final battle we got:
-Stan challenging Bill to a dice game using infinity die or
-Ford sacrificing himself or
-Twins vs. Bill pic related
>implying the ending is them still in gravity falls with a joke at the end like that
>Bill's line "Wendy is a pushover" means?
pretty sure it's how easily she was persuaded by Mabel's bubble fantasy.
>nobody believe that plot summary of the next episode that was posted?
Didn't read it. Saved it without looking.
When the finally airs, I'll read it because I'm curious to know if we had a legit leaker here.
Do you think we'll see Shermie in the finale?
Also, how is Shermie the youngest brother of the 3, while the Stans are about mid 60? There are at least 18-17 years apart between Shermie and the Stans. Shermie is a grandpa to 12 y/o kids at the age of 50 and something.
Will draw mabel requests for food. Just make them sfw, I don't feel like wasting a VPN on a unnecessary ban.
>not linking after posting it elsewhere
Ford pushing Mabel after hearing Dipper is staying with her.
Try to follow this outline and make it a short comic? >>78226561
but if you want to do a short thing or just draw Mabel, draw her playing an arcade game.
I'm pretty sure that teaching your great niece and nephew and deciding their grades is a conflict of interest.
Plus, I can't see a show about Dipper and Mabel in school being anything but a terrible 'don't do drugs' after school special type of deal.
The AToTS baby was either Shermie or Shermie's kid (twins' dad)
The game said Shermie and Stan were both at the hospital. Stan's dialogue used past-tense for shermie, implying he's dead.
Nothing implied Shermie was dead. He'd have said the twins were the children of whatever the father was named back in ATOTS if that was the case. Having another brother who is never shown but showing their child unexplained is bad writing and a violation of the agreement to the viewer. There is literally one episode left and it's not going to go back to the past. The baby is Shermie.
>bad writing and a violation of the agreement to the viewer.
Since when did Hirsch agree to do what you expect?
>Audience assumes the young guy in the Shack is Grunkle Stan
>Hirsch is actually waving the Author right in our face
>Audience assumes the baby is Shermie
>Hirsch is giving us a glimpse of Dad Pines without telling us.
Hey, they could have had Stan's mom say"you're making Shermie cry!" or "It's ok Shermie, hush..." but they didn't.
Alex left a lot of room for interpretation.
Wait, a bloody new show already!?!
>I may not like her, but it is the most logical pairing.
If only they had made her a return villain.
>Giffany will never return.
Stan switcheroo actually served a purpose. Shermie doesnt mean shit unless we got a third season. There is no reason to not think it's Shermie other than him being a bit young to be a father if you're an autist who calculates these dates, but 2B has much bigger flaws and holes that show that the team just didnt fucking care that much.
Its. About. The. Characters. :^)
I thought the same way, but when I mentioned a theory that she was still inside the beaver bot, I was quickly denounced by everyone.
>I really wanted her to come back and constantly upgrade with a new body everytime.
would be pretty boring since she only wants soos and doesn't gives a shit about the others maybe she will fight pyronica to death , because she's jealous of her body of something like that.
That makes me super sad.
I agree with Padippica and Mabel apologies.
Wendy could move to their town, and be a sister/ best friend.'
Also want barefoot kids, Mabel stops wearing sweaters and socks.
Thinking about it, Giffany is one of the few fairly major named villans that have been outright killed by the Pines twins and company. The only other one that springs to mind is the Summerween Trickster (also killed by Soos, come to think of it. What's with him and killing stuff?)
Dont worry, if it makes you feel any better we were probably denied tons of other quality content that we dont know about.
As for the Pacifcia pic, I think that's Simon's work? Not sure though, and I can't find the sauce.
