mr.-and-mrs.-northwest

10

Cary Grant, born Archibald Alexander Leach

(January 18, 1904 – ∞)

I’ve often been accused by critics of being myself onscreen. But being oneself is more difficult than you’d suppose.

Come On Eileen!

REVERSE NORTHWEST FAMILY!

Forever living the 80s style! The Mr and Mrs constantly bring up their favorite time period ever single day, and Pacifica could listen to them talk about the day they met for hours. The Northwests are the most generous family in Gravity Falls, in fact, if there was such a award for generosity, the Northwests would have six of them. Pacifica rarely doesn’t get what she wants, yet she does not boast about her wealth. She would be more than happy to lend a hand, and frankly, the parents would not mind at all.

The OG Parents were restricting, controlling and abusive, while the Reverse, they give Pacifica a bit too much freedom and little discipline. Pacifca could walk around Gravity Falls and into the forest without supervision and the Northwest couple would think nothing of it. Pacifca knows they love her, but she sometimes wanders if she is even noticeable at all to them.

So I have this thought about Gravity Falls that, regardless of truth, is my favorite headcanon and I really hope has some weight to it.

Carla McCorkle got together with Thistle Downe (This we know)

And maybe had a daughter who I believe is

Who is the mother of

Which would make Carla McCorkle Pacifica Northwest’s grandmother.

'But, Alison,' you ask 'what evidence do you have to prove this?'

Well other than the fact that I think Mrs. Northwest looks like a pretty solid combination of Carla and Thistle, (albeit with a sharper jaw) Pacifica’s color scheme seems to include purple pretty consistently, which is also the main color that Thistle and Carla wore. (Color symbolism matters to me very deeply.)

Story-wise, it would be 100% hilarious/wonderful for Carla McCorkle to come back as Pacifica’s Grandma and butt heads with her old boyfriend and the Pines family.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

A concern about Gravity Falls:

What is with the mothers???

Starting with the most recent and most appearing we have Mrs. Northwest

Who has one of the creepiest smiles I’ve seen ever (definitely a Stepford Wives reference…)

Then in the latest episode we have this gem

Notice how Preston Northwest clearly lays out who will survive: him, Pacifica, and the butler (until they eat him) BUT HE DOESN’T MENTION HIS WIFE!

This man is literally willing to save his butler to be eaten before his wife. That’s considering that he wasn’t planning to eat her first.

Next on the list is the lovely Mrs. Gleeful

…not sure much more needs to be said…

And last but (actually kinda) least, we have Wendy’s mother! Or, at least a mention of Wendy’s mother

"Alas, Wendy’s mom is no longer with her" -Alex’s Hirsch

Note to self: don’t have kids in Gravity Falls.

Though given the way the show is going I’m not sure this is much better.

Day 2

Gravity Falls has been pretty good about creating great characters. It’s very rare that I actually dislike a character because just when you think you know them, the show will suddenly show that they are not what they seem.

Robbie V. seemed like a complete jerk; Pacifica seemed to be just a one-dimensional valley girl stereotype…. the point is that Gravity Falls characters shouldn’t be taken at face value.

It was only recently that I settled on any characters to hate, and I think you’ll agree with me:

Something to keep in mind with weather or not you forgive Pacifica: Mr. and Mrs. Northwest believe they must constantly prove their superiority by making others feel inferior.  

THE ONLY TIME we see them encourage Pacifica is when she insults or belittles others.

It’s likely that her bullying wasn’t only her venting her frustration with her controlling parents, but behavior that was heavily reinforced.

(I suppose there was the fireworks at the end of Golf Wars, but that felt more like a show for anyone watching than for her.)

I did the hunger games simulator with gravity falls characters, Bill was the victor. Coincidence? I think not.
