Hobbit Falls AU
Earlier this week I reblogged a meme that said:
1 - TAKE YOUR OLDEST FANDOM you know the one, that first thing you made art or wrote fic for, where you made all those really weird over the top OCs because you didn’t know any better
2 - TAKE YOUR NEWEST FANDOM yeah, that thing that you love and can’t stop thinking about right now
3- SMASH THEM TOGETHER like freakin’ conceptual play-doh
4 - MAKE SOMETHIN’ OUT OF IT make fic! art! a song! whatever!
And I remarked (in the tags): “if you think I wouldn’t do a Tolkien-Gravity Falls mashup, then you have another thing coming”.
My initial thought was more along the lines of, Ha ha, that would probably work really well with a DD&MD reference or something, Ford and Dipper as elves, etc. etc.
Then on the bus home, it hit me. The Pines are totally hobbits. Disreputable hobbits with a taste for adventure, of course. But absolutely hobbits. And after that, it wouldn’t leave me alone.
This got long, so… hit the link below for lots of thoughts, plus better views of the figures.
