i wanted to draw some scenes from my Beauty and the Beast AU!!
i absolutely had to draw the snowball fight between Stan and the kids, haha. the second image is of everyone sitting in front of the fireplace, and Ford (as the journal) is telling them a story, while Dipper reads it aloud for everyone. the third is the ballroom sequence, and i changed around some of the colors here to fit the characters better.
my favorite is Stan’s transformation into a human again. i was itching to draw that scene for a while, and i’m really happy with how it came out!!
my second favorite is Stan embracing Ford. Ford, since he was stuck as a Journal for so many years, can’t really walk or use his limbs all that well. so rather than trip and fall on his way to Stan, he waited for Stan to make his way up to him. and Stan is just so relieved that his brother is back that, in a show of raw emotion, he just ran and held Ford as tightly as he could, while Dipper and Mabel run over to join them
the final image is of everyone just celebrating the fact that the curse is finally lifted. Mabel and Dipper are getting formally introduced to Ford (which is why they’re holding his hand), and Stan is helping hold Ford up to keep him from falling over
so like, what about a platonic Beauty and the Beast AU with Stan as the Beast and Mabel and Dipper sharing the role of Belle????
(also, McGucket as Maurice, Ford, Soos and Wendy as the roles of Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, and Cogsworth, and Gideon as Gaston, with Ghost Eyes as Lefou)
idk, i was thinking of ‘hey, what about a platonic version of Beauty and
the Beast, where platonic/familial love saves the Beast instead of
romantic love??’ but then my mind was like ‘hey, what if i added Gravity
Falls to this’ and then this happened lmao
i just love the idea of Stan getting turned into a beast, and having to suffer being like this for years and years, with his depression and self-worth getting worse and worse….. until, one day, Dipper and Mabel come into his life. And by spending time with them and bonding with them (via snowball fights, dancing with Mabel, and showing the library to Dipper), he’s slowly starting to love them, and they’re starting to love him back, and it’s just pure platonic fluff all around
