“I do find friendship more compelling to write about than romantic love. I am not interested in marriage and maternity novels. For me, the quest is to write something with a rip-roaring effect; I get that from stories that combine friendship and adventure.”
Hey, this is a new blog dedicated to Gravity Falls, and specifically to theories about Gravity Falls. We have some interesting (possibly far-fetched) theories. This is one of them.
Stan’s Twin Theory:
Stan has to have a brother (although not necessarily a twin), because he’s Dipper and Mabel’s Great-Uncle, and they all share the same last name, therefore he must have a brother. However, we believe he has a twin. Here’s why:
twins are genetic (and the gene can skip generations)
There are some pieces of evidence found in the show that supports our claim
We also believe that Stan’s twin may be the Author. Here’s why:
1. The Hiding Spot
Look, a hole in the ground
In Tourist Trapped, Dipper found the 3rd book in the forest near the Mystery Shack. This may seem like a stretch, but think about it! where would you hide something important that you might want to access easily? By your house.
In The Hand that Rocks the Mabel it is shown that Gideon’s family factory is located on Gopher Road, the same street as the Mystery Shack.
The Mystery Shack’s address via the Deed is 618 Gopher Road.
This could explain how Gideon found the 2nd Journal.
And it’s interesting to note that Gideon was searching for the 1st Journal at the Mystery Shack.
Possible hiding spots
There are possible hiding spots listed in the 2nd Journal, they seem to be located around a building similar to the Mystery Shack.
2. The Bunker
The Bunker is located underground, in the forest near the Mystery Shack.
There is a sign on the wall of the bunker that says that it is a nuclear fallout shelter. Now, where would you build a fallout shelter? Near your house of course! During times of bomb scares people would build fallout shelters in their backyard.
And since the Author did experiments in the bunker and was observing a shapeshifter, it would be more convenient for him to have the bunker close to the place where he lived.
3. The Glasses
In Carpet Diem, a secret room is discovered in the Mystery Shack, and Stan finds a pair of glasses.
Stan finds the glasses
Later he is seen staring at the glasses, and he frowns at them in both scenes.
Stan contemplating the glasses
This could possibly represent an old memory of a friend or *cough* brother. It is obvious that someone lived in that room at some point, so why would Stan want to cover it up?
In Dreamscapers, it is shown in the 2nd Journal that the Author was surprised to see glasses on the Bill Cipher wheel, possibly because those are his glasses.Take a look at the glasses, they are similar to the ones found in the secret room.
We don’t think these are Stan’s glasses because his glasses are square with rims at the bottom, while the glasses found in the room and on the wheel don’t have rims at the bottom and are rounded.
Also in Dreamscapers, is a flash back of Stan when he was just a wee lad.
Notice his glasses are square and have rims at the bottom.
Here is Stan a little bit older. Notice that he still has square rimmed glasses.
But, in The Time Traveler's Pig, a younger “Stan” is shown with round glasses without rims at the bottom. His glasses look exactly like the one’s found in the secret room.
Is this really Stan?
Also, this “Stan” has a cleft chin, whereas we have never ever once seen Stan with a cleft chin (not even in flashbacks).
4. The Calender
Another small point: the calendar in the secret room has the date July 4, 1982 circled. It can be assumed that 1982 is the year the room was abandoned.
The room definitely looks like it hasn’t been touched since the 80’s
However, in the Author’s bunker, there is a calendar on the wall. Guess what year is on the calendar. 1982.
The calendar in the Mystery Shack and the calendar in the Author’s Bunker are from the same year, 1982.
This suggests that both the room in the Shack and the Bunker were abandoned around the same time.
5. Wrestling Match Flashback
In a brief scene in Stan’s flashback in Dreamscapers, we see young Stan at a wrestling match. There is a kid reading a book in the stands that looks very similar to child Stan, he even seems to be wearing the same clothing.
Could this be Stan’s twin?
6. The Swing-set
In Dreamscapers, Stan’s mindscape is very creepy. One notable object in Stan’s mind is a dilapidated swing-set. This is the stuff of horror movies.
Since we can assume everything in the mind is a symbol of a significant part of Stan’s life, then this swing-set is very telling. It likely symbolizes a broken childhood. Since it is a two swing swing-set, it could symbolize another person, likely from Stan’s childhood. A close friend… or sibling…
The fact that only one of the swings is broken is also interesting. In Into the Bunker, the Shapeshifter states that the Author “hasn’t been himself in 30 years” suggesting that he probably went crazy.
Are all these merely coincidences? Maybe… But this is Gravity Falls we’re talking about. This show is filled with foreshadowing, plot twists, and secrets. There is just no way that all of this could be a coincidence.
So, what do you think? Is this a stretch? Or are we on to something? Feel free to comment with your own theories. The more the merrier! :)

Yesterday, Trump removed the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Director of National Intelligence from the National Security Council. He replaced them with Steve Bannon. Bannon has no government, intelligence, or high-level military experience; his experience is leading a propaganda outlet (Breitbart News) that peddles nationalist and white nationalist viewpoints.
This would be deeply concerning in and of itself. But one of the jobs of the NSC is to oversee a secret panel that authorizes the assassination of “enemies of the United States Government” – including American citizens. These targeted killings are fully authorized by law under the Congressional military authorization act following 9/11. There is no trial, no due process, and no public record of the decision or the assassination itself.
Just to recap the absurdity: the President of the United States has appointed a known propagandist, nationalist, and white supremacist to replace the highest military advisor in the country on a council that authorizes secret, legal, targeted killings of American citizens (and others) without due process.
What You Can Do:
- Call your Senators and Congressperson this week and demand that they publicly and legislatively oppose Trump’s appointment of Steven Bannon to the NSC.
- Spread the word about this news to your networks, since this is not getting a lot of coverage right now.

Promoting a movie you are a part of is always exciting and a lot of fun. While filming, you end up spending a lot of time with your fellow cast members and the whole crew in general; During it, you get really close with them. Therefore, it’s always sad when the time on set comes to an end and you have to say goodbye to everyone.
So when it came to promoting the movie, which was, obviously, months after filming it, it kind of feels like coming home. Because you are once again spending a lot of time with the main cast and the director.
Seeing my two handsome men, Dylan O’Brien and Taylor Kitsch, again to promote our movie, American Assassin, was especially exciting. Shooting this movie was the best time of my life, hands down. The boys and I grew closer very fast and had a blast together. We were lucky enough to travel around the world for this project. We went to a lot of pubs in London, ate the best pizza in Italy and visited the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
The first duty of the novelist is to entertain. It is a moral duty. People who read your books are sick, sad, traveling, in the hospital waiting room while someone is dying. Books are written by the alone for the alone.
