Gravity Falls headcannons and theories before “A Tale of Two Stans” come out.

Separated into “fluffy bs that might be destroyed if anyone dies next episode but oh well they’re cute dang it i’m keeping them” and “actual myth arc conspiracy theories”.

Fluff:

- Author!Stan has to share Stanley’s room for a while, eventually they re-make the break room as his but he has nightmares about the other side of the portal so much he keeps sneaking into Stanley’s room to sleep anyway because having another human around comforts him so Stanley lets him move back in.

- The first few nights they share the bed even though it’s squashed and awkward and they always end up tangled together because Stanford can’t relax enough to get to sleep without the constant reminder he’s not alone anymore.

- He also goes through Stanley’s room and crosses out or hides anything that even vaguely resembles a circle in a triangle, including making Stan put away all his money or he’ll deface/burn it.

- Stanford finds out Fiddleford’s condition and takes responsibility, helping him clean up and making Stanley hire him to work at the Shack (which ends up working out great because his crazy act is popular with the tourists and he can whip up fake audio-anamatronics for displays pretty easily (Soos helps)). They make him a little hut next to the shack to live in and he becomes like part of the family.

- Right after he got back Stanford spent a lot of time filling new journals with all the things he had seen on the other side. Dipper hangs out and watches him and occasionally asks questions, which isn’t actually as annoying as he thought it would be since it helps him remember details.

- Stanford is really damn surprised that Stanley ended up being good with kids somehow. (At least these two kids.)

- Stanford is going to be really confused when Stanley makes the dramatic declaration that he’s the kid’s real Grunkle. (because like wtf is a grunkle) (and assuming he is and Stanley is grandpa idk)

Non-fluff:

- Bill is one of the Pines from the future, just not Dipper.

- Bill was betrayed by a sibling in the past.

- the portal isn’t fully closed yet and will re-activate at the end of this episode

- Stanford is going to be really mad at Stanley for risking opening the portal again just to save him. (But it will end in angry frustrated hugs.)

- “Abnormal soon will be the norm.” refers to the Society of the Blind Eye being broken up, because now there is nothing to stop everyone else in Gravity Falls from knowing about all the crazy shit going on there.

- OR it refers to whatever the portal is going to cause this time.

- Stan loudly denied the supernatural and acted like Dipper was just making things up because he knew someone was going around messing with people’s heads and that’s why the Society never got him or the kids.

- They’d probably gotten Soos before though. Not Wendy, because she’s smart enough not to go talking about it in public (and her dad is scary).

I leave the bathroom, thinking that I’ve gotten away with it all…until her voice startles me.

Kim:  Where have you been?  It’s after 2am!

The blood rushes to my head and I can’t think of anything to say.  I haven’t been this afraid since I got arrested for defacing a wall in college.  In fact, I’d prefer to be facing the campus police right now!

Modern Day Heroine Removes Confederate Flag In Front Of South Carolina Statehouse

A powerful black woman scaled a flagpole in front of the South Carolina Statehouse on Saturday morning and removed the Confederate battle flag.

“We removed the flag today because we can’t wait any longer,” Bree Newsome, 30, said in a statement released by activist group Blackbird, which was helping out with press but did not facilitate the event itself. “We can’t continue like this another day. It’s time for a new chapter where we are sincere about dismantling white supremacy and building toward true racial justice and equality.”

Bree Newsome a compatriot, James Tyson, 30, also of Charlotte, face charges of defacing monuments on state Capitol grounds, The Associated Press reported. The offense carries a possible fine of up to $5,000 and up to three years in prison.

But the rest of the world wasn’t having that. A #FreeBree crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo raised $97,446 within 23 hours, and is now currently over $100,000.

Her heroic act hasn’t gone unnoticed and she’s even being compared to Fannie Lou Hamer, Rosa Parks and other civil rights icons.

Unfortunately, because this is America, not even an hour after Bree was arrested, the flag was ordered to be put back up just in time for a White Supremacist rally that was staged later that day and where hundreds gathered in support of the Confederate flag.

“We are being exterminated,” cried Mike Williams, organizer of the procession in Montgomery, Alabama, which drew scores of men, women and children on Saturday afternoon. “Our heritage is being put into museum. We have a right to honor our history just like everyone else does.”

The irony and sheer stupidity in that statement alone…smfh

#FreeBree

Today a woman named Bree Newsome climbed up the flag pole in front of the South Carolina State house and took down the Confederate Flag. Police harassed her and told her to come down but she said “You cannot get to me with hatred and oppression and violence. I come to do this in the name of God. This flag comes down today,” and then slowly came down the pole. What she did is an example of true bravery and heroism but of course she was arrested for defacing a monument. Remember this day. This woman is making history.

To the people who say that the confederate flag does not represent racist attitudes, but rather Southern history:

These are protesters at Ole Miss in 1962 attempting to fight integration and prevent James Meredith, an African-American Air Force veteran, from enrolling at the university. Many waved confederate flags as a symbol of resistance to racial integration and the Civil Rights Movement as a whole. The day that Meredith registered at Ole Miss, protesters carrying confederate flags broke out into a violent riot, killing 2 people and injuring hundreds.

You’re absolutely right about the flag being a part of Southern history. However, it has historically often been used to represent racism and white supremacy, this obviously being one of a plethora of examples.

So while you may not wave the flag in the same manner that these people did, that does not change the fact that millions of people throughout history have defaced it with racist connotations.

Someone poured a bucket of red paint over Christopher Columbus’s head down by the harbor and tagged his plinth with “black lives matter” and the news is saying “vandals defaced an iconic statue” when in fact what has happened is a great artistic improvement to our waterfront

Collapsing Wedding Cake

A newly popular geologic feature near Sydney could succumb to gravity at any time, but almost certainly within the next decade. Wedding Cake Rock is now closed to visitors because of the imminent danger of a collapse.

Wedding Cake Rock is a stark white sedimentary rock within Royal National Park about 30 km (19 miles) south of Sydney. It resides at the top of a sandstone cliff roughly 80 meters above the ocean below.

The rock was not a hot spot for visitors until a social media craze made it a popular place. Suddenly 10,000 people per month started visiting, with many showing up to take photos while doing handstands near the edge of the flat white surface or sitting with their legs dangling over the edge – a very bad idea considering the soft sandstone is known to crumble. A year ago, a 23-year old fell to his death when the rock underneath him gave way. Additionally, some of these visitors are defacing the white surface by writing their name with bright colors.
