Maybe you’ll even see it by the end of the summer.
Since an anon asked about what weirdmageddon’s going to be like in this au, I decided to give a hint! This is set waaay after Dipper meets Mabel. At this point, they’re already friends and it’s established that Dipper’s “not from her world”.
Essentially, Dipper has wide misconceptions about the true nature of the nightmare realm. Think of it as misplaced compassion that Dipper, influenced in part by Bill and his liberation spiel, wants to help Bill “show the world how much better the nightmare realm was”.
