Why So Many Monsters/Creepy Stuff In Gravity Falls?
It’s a great question and one of the burning mysteries of the show. The Author himself specifically set up shop, stuck around for at least 6 years and cataloged everything in 3 Journals just to try and answer that question. Which is saying a lot, from a kid who grew up on the shores of New Jersey. What led him to the West Coast? Was it school, life, family estrangement? Who knows, but whatever it was, he saw something worth staying in Gravity Falls, which means there must be an underlying universal reason on why so much creepy stuff happens there.
Now, the answer isn’t clear and it probably won’t be for quite some time, but I have a few theories. Maybe they’ve been discussed- maybe they haven’t, I haven’t been in the fandom long enough to know. If there are any other theories out there though, let me know and I’ll link to them on the bottom!
So, Why So Many Monsters???
My Main Theory: There is a Natural Trans-Dimensional Portal that was recently opened in the area and the Author found it.
Honestly this is my number one theory on all things creepy and mysterious in Gravity Falls OR, including Bill, the Town Name, and why the Author initially built the first portal. My evidence? See below.
