Does anyone remember when Gravity Falls first came out?

When we referred to bill as “triangle guy” and thought he wasn’t relevant in any way

When the fandom was sizably smaller than it was today so we all had to stick together

People just learning how to use ciphers but no one could really figure out what the messages meant

The amount of candyxdipper shippers being overwhelming

Gideon’s first appearance and the explosion of theories that occurred after it

Literally spending hours going through the ending sequel codes and deciphering them because Gravity Falls wiki didn’t have all the answers yet

The season 1 finale breaking your fucking heart
