except not really

Have a cute AU that is just fluff tbh

Stan never leaves NJ and instead gets that job at the taffy shop and eventually a job part-time working with the fisherman but for the most part has an uneventful life that he’s not exactly happy with but he’s not homeless and he has some drinking buddies and has realized just what a looser his father really was etc. etc.

Then he gets the letter from Ford begging him to come to Oregon to help him and Stan stares at it for a moment before writing back “you want to see me then YOU come HERE” and Stan thinks that’s it, he’s officially cut ties with his brother with that letter.

Only a week later Ford shows up at his door looking half dead and passes out in his arms and is just gone for almost a week.

When he finally comes to he tries to get Stan to take the journal and Stan says no and kicks /him/ out, only Ford doesn’t give up and keeps trying to get Stan to take the book

For weeks

And they start to talk

Even if the conversations always end with Ford trying to give Stan his journal

But they talk

And eventually /Stan/ gets through to /Ford/

And, well, Ford does still have some grant money and…maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad idea?

They have to return to gravity falls eventually to really destroy the portal but a few weeks out at sea wouldn’t be a bad thing right?

A month?

A few years….

Hamilton on Tumblr
  • Alexander:Runs a huge social justice blog. Focuses a lot on the economy. People are convinced that either he has a queue or there are multiple people running the blog, because so much gets posted there at such a wide range of times. But no, that really is just Alexander up at 5:30 am posting massive rants about communication barriers. Sometimes he posts selfies or long posts about how great his friends are.
  • Angelica:another social justice blogger. She focuses mainly on feminism and her blog is super accessible and neat. She and Alexander started talking when she tore one of his posts apart. Both of them expected to hate each other, but pretty soon they were constantly emailing each other and helping edit each other's posts.
  • Eliza:Runs a super cute mostly aesthetic blog. Sometimes does guest posts for Angelica's blog. Angelica introduced her to Alexander and the two started talking over Skype. When they met up after realizing they live in the same city, Eliza posted ALL the pictures.
  • Peggy:really big Marvel fandom blog. Everyone thinks she's lying about Peggy being her real name. Also writes guest posts for Angelica's blog.
  • Lafayette:so many selfies. once uploaded a video of himself ranting about the government while he was hella drunk and it got a bazillion notes because zomg hot guy with a French accent <3333. He's pretty okay with that. Now he uploads a lot of videos about social injustice in hopes that people will watch for the sexy and learn something while they're at it.
  • Laurens:Runs a TL;DR version of Alexander's blog. Alex was so excited about it when he found out and immediately added a link to the blog in his sidebar. Also has a personal blog where he kinda posts/reblogs whatever strikes his fancy (mostly social justice with a strong focus on racial equality). Whenever he's drunk and having crush feelings about Hamilton he inevitably accidentally posts them to the TL;DR blog, where Alex pretends not to have seen them but secretly screencaps them and saves them to a special folder so he can reread them whenever he wants.
  • Hercules Mulligan:runs a fashion blog. Offers a lot of advice on dressing well on a budget and finding clothes that flatter you. Is also somehow friends with half tumblr's programming team and warns people about updates.
  • Phillip Hamilton and Theodosia Burr:Alexander and Aaron get into a passive aggressive war over who can post the cutest picture of their child so finally Eliza's like "Fine, we'll get a separate blog for this" so from the age of like six months there's a blog where their parents post pictures and stories about them. It has so many followers and both of them are so embarrassed about it when they grow up.
  • Aaron Burr:runs a blog where he talks about current events and politics. Has developed something of a reputation for being unbiased and accurate. He and Alexander do genuinely respect each other but their rivalry is legendary. A decent amount of their followers are only there for the sass.
  • King George:anti-sj blog obvs
  • Washington:head of some sort of small non-profit organization, doesn't post much about himself but makes sure to keep the blog active. Everyone thinks his organization is super fantastic and Hamilton is so excited when Washington approaches him about helping run the organization's social media accounts.
  • Jefferson:Almost as many selfies as Lafayette. Also writes music and posts samples on his blog. He and Hamilton get into what can only be described as flame wars.
