Summary: Dipper Pines and his twin have been vampires for 110 years, ever since a mysterious rogue illegally turned them amidst the chaos of an earthquake, and finally have their footing within the human world.

But when a bite to eat turns out to be something much, much more, Dipper finds himself knocked right off balance again.

And I’m biracial, but also white-passing, which is a unique perspective. So these kids say, like, “Oh, fucking tri-bi Halsey! She’ll never miss an opportunity to talk about it!” I want to sit them down like a mom and go, “Six months ago you were begging for an artist that would talk about this shit! But then I do, and you say, ‘Oh, not her. Someone else.
