So I was reading this excellent analysis of how Stan may have bonded with Mabel and Ford with Dipper in part because they fit a gap in the twin dynamic that Stan and Ford used to have with each other. (Linking instead of reblogging just because 1) it’s pretty long and 2) I’m pretty sure I reblogged it before.)
It briefly touched on the whole B-plot where Mabel takes Stan up to the water tower to try and cure his fear of heights, and that got me thinking…
To my mind, the funniest part of that whole plot is that Stan clearly knows what is going on from minute one. He knows she’s gonna take him someplace really high up, he doesn’t want to go there, but he goes anyway without any protest and barely any hesitation. That was probably totally his childhood dynamic with Ford.
So what I want to know is, what kind of crazy, dangerous shit did Ford get Stan to do when they were kids/teens?
