SURPRISE, I WILL NEVER BE DONE WITH MONSTERFALLS. And I actually have more doodles… somewhere…. I just gotta find a missing sketchbook.

Ok so explanations for things:

1. Stan and Mabel are keeping the Mystery Shack in business by making the whole monster thing seem like an act. The excessive makeup and fake zippers, seams, etc was all Mabel’s idea! She also tosses a fistful of glitter on Stan.. for no real reason, just because she can. He accepts it after a while.

2. DIPPER AND MABEL’S PARENTS WHOAH! They’d have to find out eventually. Also, their mom is the one related to the Pines side of the family, but she vowed to keep her last name in memory of her father. 

3. yeh I said I would draw that doctor guy

4. SOOOOS. Being an indestructible blob of clay would have to have some upsides, right?

El Toro AU doodles! I think I’ve figured out the basics of it:

  • It’s not so much telling the same story as El Tigre, it’s just putting Book of Life’s story/characters into El Tigre’s setting. So modern times, super heroes, etc…
  • And because it’s in a super-fantastic setting, La Muerte and Xibalba gave Manolo and Joaquin some extra gifts. Manolo gets a magic guitar (just like Sartana’s!) to help him come back to the realm of the living, and Joaquin gets that cool little crown that gives him some fire powers. And maybe some other nasty side effects over time? naaaaaww yes totally
  • Maria needs no super powers! She’s learned some super science from when she studied abroad.
  • I’m still not 100% sure how Manolo died, but it’d probably be different from the actual story.. Maybe Xibalba sent a giant two-headed snake monster for Joaquin to defeat all impressively, but Manolo got killed in the kerfuffle? La Muerte hands over the guitar, and if Xibalba tries to complain about that being cheating, she can just point emphatically at Joaquin. yeah, that’ll work.
  • This is awfully convoluted but it’s all just an excuse to combine my favorite things: super hero stories, good guys that are monsters/dead, and these characters. being a bunch of adorable children.
