Sirius, you're my friend. No, you're my brother. I'll do anything for you, okay? But if you break Moony's heart, I'll not hesitate to crush your balls and feed it to Hagrid's pets. You understand me, Padfoot?
Yes, but I do have one question.
Did you rehearse this with Lily? Because the other day, Evans came to me and said the exact same thing, except it was Marlene McKnickers' heart that we were talking about.
*eyes widen* Wait, what?
*pales slightly* Uh-oh. I shouldn't have said that, huh?
YOU'RE CHEATING ON MOONY WITH MARLENE?
Prongs, I can expla-
YOU'RE CHEATING ON MARLENE WITH REMUS?
*starts running before James or Lily can kill him*
I have had this cold feeling that, instead of a perfect summer, Mabel is trapped in a recorded ambushed memories of her failing Dipper.
I’m going to explain.
Bill, even if he makes deal, he tends to twist them for his own favour, like the Genie in The Fairy Odd Parents. Even if Bill has promised Mabel an endless summer, that doesnt mean it’s going to be “her perfect summer”. If I remember well, Gideon said Mabel has “an eternity” to love him. So far, if that statement was true, means that Bill was keeping his part of the deal.
But trapping her doesnt favour him in anything. If he just wanted to get rid of her because he considers her a threat, Bill would have just killed her or made her be killed like he was going to do to Dipper.
Bill is a chaotic demon and that bubbles were “madness bubbles”. So, I believe Mabel is trapped in a chaotic reality. But why?
Maybe because Bill wants something for her. That’s almost an estabilished theory. But I dont think he will just put one guard to protect the bubble and neither making a key. That’s like making an autodestroy button.
I’m convinced Bill wanted Dipper to find the bubble and enter into this reality.
To break Mabel the exact moment Bill needs it to happen.
It makes sense. If Bill is corrupting Mabel to the point that bubble is turning black it’s because he wants 1) to make her a demon (that´s my personal theory, dont mind me) or 2) to use her imagination.
Using Dipper as the trigger also makes sense. Alex Hirsch said that Mabel hasnt forget that Dipper was going to leave her and that she doesnt want to grow up. Bill is maybe hitting her with that memory and others where she failed Dipper.
When Simon meets Jace at a kitten daycare, it’s love at first sight. But with his horrible track record of dealing with crushes, plus the fact that he can’t seem to formulate a proper sentence every time he’s face to face with Jace, will they ever be more than just friends? Oh, and then there’s the vampire thing. How on earth is he going to explain that to Jace?
*Set in upstairs bedroom for the boys, Zay and Lucas are already there, with Zay in a corner chair and Lucas pacing around, confused about what just transpired during the Truth or Dare game, Farkle enters in a rush, anxious to explain*
Hey, Lucas, I can expla-
(Stands up in front of Farkle)
I don’t think that’s a good idea right now.
I just want to talk to him Zay. He’s my best friend. He's not going to hurt me.
(Talking over Zay’s shoulder to Lucas)
I just want to explain myself and tell him it was-
Nothing, yea, you said that. A LOT.
And he’s my best friend.
No. he’s my best friend!
Well I’ve known him longer!
Yea and got him kicked out of school! People change people, remember? What us does for them?!
(Points at himself grandiosely)
That’s me? I’m ‘People’! I’M AN US!”
Well you kissed his girlfriend! I moved all the way from Texas to go to school with him! I’m obviously the better friend!
Your dad transferred! And I told you it was NOTH-
GUYS! Really? Right now?
Farkle and Zay:
(Looking ashamed, both sit down, Zay in chair, Farkle on bed)
(Sitting on opposite bed, pauses then slowly says)
Farkle...I gotta ask. What WAS that down there?
(Puts hands out to stop/calm him, slightly chuckling)
Other than “Nothing”.
(Looks down, long silence, shaking leg nervously)
(Looks up at Lucas seriously, Pauses)
I don’t want it to be something.
I don’t know. I don’t understand feelings. I want too! But I don’t.
I thought you understood everything.
(Farkle Stares daggers at Zay)
Sorry, I just never thought I would hear you say that…
(Exasperated after hearing Riley say the same thing moments before , throws hands up in defeat)
Yeah, I know, I’m supposed to explain EVERYTHING TO YOU PEOPLE.
But feelings can’t always be explained…
(Pauses as the connection clicks for him)
(Points shaking finger at Farkle, almost excited he figured it out himself)
Kind of like how faith can’t be explained either. And that’s the problem- you don’t understand feelings, so you don’t want to admit you have them. That’s it, isn’t it!
(Grabbing Lucas’ finger to stop it)
All I know is that I have loved Riley and Maya equally since the first grade and I promised them that would never change. I don’t want it to change.
(Looks around at both other boys)
I don’t want any of us to change.
Haven’t we already though? Changed? Don’t we kind of have too?
I hate that you’re smarter than me at this.
(Snarky like, smiling big to himself and kicking up his legs)
They call me Zay Babineaux, Love Doctor.
Literally NO ONE calls you that.
(Turns back to Farkle)
So you like Riley now?
I have always loved Riley. I have always wanted to protect her and I know I have always wanted to see her happy. But I want that for Maya, too.
Plus there’s Smackle…
(Farkle stares more daggers at Zay)
Just stating facts, here.
(Turns back to Lucas)
Isadora Smackle is one of the most beautiful and brilliant people to ever walk the earth and I am lucky to know her. I would never want to hurt her.
(Looks slightly guilty)
I don’t want to hurt any of us.
(Lucas nods, long silence)
So…is this like,
(Starts counting in his head/on his fingers)
..a pentagon, instead of a triangle now? Because I was just starting to understand this whole triangle thing…
(Lucas and Farkle are staying at Zay, incredeously)
Hey, don’t look at me like that you know I’m just here for some polite and if I do say so myself, very humorous commentary.
(Slapping his legs definitively )
Well no! It’s not "a pentagon". Lucas has to figure out his feelings, and I have Isadora to think about. No new geometrical shapes to consider here.
But Lucas decided already.
(Staring at Lucas with a questionable yet knowing look on his face)
Did he? Huh.
(Lucas silent, shifty eyes)
Oh, see? He’s all confused again and not saying anything cause he picked Riley and now he thinks your going to be mad.
(Staring straight at Lucas, doesn’t break gaze)
Actually I don’t think he’s confused. I think he knows exactly what he wants.
(Lucas still silent, looking pained. Zay looking around confused)
Okay see I usually know where things are going but. What's going on here?
(Still not breaking gaze of Lucas)
He wants Maya. His choice is Maya.
What! No, no, no, you said you picked RILEY!
(Stops, cocks head to the side and thinks it over, meant to be humorous)
Wow, maybe I’m not his best friend.
(Standing up quickly)
I was! I mean, I AM! I mean. I’m scared to move. And it’s not because of Farkle.
Yeah we know, you don’t want this to be “the end of us”.
No, that’s not it. That’s not why he’s scared.
(Looks over at Lucas)
Don’t ask me! Ask the genius!
Lucas, all you’ve been able to talk about this last week is Maya. How worried you are about her, how important her happiness is to you. You dragged me all around the Village looking for her the night she painted the park.
Yea, and you did call her the “beautiful flowers that grow from volcanic ash".
Yeah. Yeah that was deep.
(Look at, nodding and agreeing with Farkle)
(To himself, frustrated)
How did I not see this coming?!
(Staring at both of them considering it, then quickly shaking his head and standing to pace again)
No none of that matters!
(Very matter of fact)
What matters is the universe. The universe and nature. And they told me to pick Riley. They told me that when she fell in to my-
You mean when she was pushed by Maya –
(Takes a deep breath)
Okay…Fine. They told me when she was PUSHED by Maya into my lap on the subway, that it was meant to be. So how could I not pick her? That's how it's supposed to be for-
(Has an aggressive outburst)
Okay stop! Even a genius can’t handle hearing you talk about what makes sense in the universe for even one more second!
(Pulls himself together a little)
I love Riley. I want to see her happy more than anything else in the world. I want what is best for both of you. But I don’t think she would be happy with just “supposed to".
(Bursting out again)
I’m not finished!
(Lucas holds hands up defenseless)
(Sits down slowly)
Because you know what else I know? I know that one of my other best friends is downstairs and she feels broken and alone. She’s lost, Lucas. And she needs to be reminded of how beautiful she is. And I think you are the person that should tell her that. I think you are the person she wants to hear it from.
(Lucas pauses, looks at Zay slightly desperately)
You do get really passionate when you talk about Maya.
It’s your decision Lucas. Just make sure you do what you want to do, not just what you think you are supposed to do. The universe doesn’t get a say here. You do.
(Lucas completely freezes, staring at the ground, everyone anxiously paused)
(Very long pause)
I’m going to get Maya.
(Farkle and Zay smile/look shocked, crowd cheers as Lucas runs towards the door, out to the open stairwell, where there is view of bottom floor.)
(Lucas pauses at top of staircase, looks around and looks towards couch. There, Maya is sitting with Josh. Their conversation cant be heard, but he has her face in his hand)
(Lucas is completely frozen in place)
(Zay comes up from behind, puts hand on Lucas' shoulder)
Whoa. Dude. I’m sorry…
(Farkle comes up on other side, sees the couch)
(Zay shoves him lightly, Farkle stumbles)
I mean Josh. Uncle Josh. No.
I guess I’m not the one she wanted to hear it from, after all.
(Gestures to couch)
He’s already got it covered.
(Lucas drops arm and walks back into room, defeated.)
(Zay and Farkle look at each other, concerned, pan out from scene)
