WAIT A MINUTE

THE BACK OF THE MOST RECENT CLUE FIT INTO A MISSING SECTION OF THE FIRST CLUE, WHICH WAS POSTED ON TWITTER BY ALEX HIRSCH

EARLIER TODAY, GRAVITYFALLSCIPHER ON TWITTER, WHO IS CURRENTLY POSSESED BY BILL, POSTED THIS TWEET:

AND AT FIRST I THOUGHT THAT WAS A METAPHOR. I THOUGHT IT WAS REFERRING TO THE PUZZLE BECAUSE IT WAS COMPLETED DIGITALLY INSTEAD OF OF IN REAL LIFE

BUT THEN I WENT BACK AND LOOKED AT THE PICTURE ALEX POSTED ON TWITTER AND

THERE’S MORE THAN ONE PIECE MISSING. IT’S RIPPED AT EVERY CORNER.

THAT MEANS WE’RE MISSING SOMETHING. AND THAT GRAVITYFALLSCIPHER’S TWEET IS LITERAL. THE PAPER WON’T WORK UNTIL WE HAVE ALL THE PARTS

THE HUNT WON’T BE OVER UNTIL WE PIECE THE PAPER BACK TOGETHER

“You never tweet
you overeat
all you do is cry and sleep
your joke are shitposts and memes with no originality
your family’s sad you flopped your law degree at university
and anything embarrassing that’s from your past you just delete
you were a vegan for like three weeks, then what? you missed the meat?
wow I’m so impressed by your deep moral integrity
you try so hard to be peaceful and diplomatic
but can’t make toast without tumblr saying you’re problematic”

buckynating  asked:

Maybe this is a silly question, but how do you come up with your titles? I was taking your survey and thought "I want to read every story, regardless of summary, from the title alone. How."

Not a silly question, a great question—I like my titles to encapsulate everything I’m trying to write about, the heart of the piece, so I pick them very carefully. 

Most come from poetry or quotes or common phrases. For example, “in this dark world and wide” (the Daredevil fic) comes from a poem by John Milton—Milton, of course, was the blind poet who wrote Paradise Lost, that great epic about angels and demons. Appropriate for a fic where Matt is going to encounter angels and demons in the world on fire.

“The Dogs of War” is Shakespeare (“Cry ‘Havoc!’, and let slip the dogs of war” from Julius Caesar) and “the bending sky” is from a Jeremy Radin poem (”I threw myself into anything’s path. Even the sky bent around me./How lonely to be something that nothing wants to kill.” The quintessential Kylo Ren poem.)

Et cetera.

Other titles are words with specific meaning for the piece. “Trasumanar” is a neologism invented by Dante for the Divine Comedy, used to describe his ascent to Paradise and transformation—it literally means, “to pass beyond the human.” Since that’s what the Force is doing with the Skywalkers, it seemed appropriate.

“Rituale Romanum” is the book containing all the rituals of the Roman Catholic Church, including exorcisms. 


…………..the rest I came up with just to sound cool.

Tell Me

What was your OC’s childhood like?

How does that effect them now?

If they could change anything about it, would they?

What family did they have growing up, if any?

What did they always want growing up?

What are some of the main events that happened in your OC’s childhood?

Do these events change something for someone else?

If their childhood was different, what would your OC be like now?
