With relatively falls, I can see some things being swapped, like Ford in sweater town. I also can see Stan having a manliness crisis after Ford making a comment about their dad thinking some of the crafts he does with Granty are girly. And idk, I kinda replaced the Baba songs with a can of glitter in my head, like Stan calls them tiny stars and just adores them, and maybe bugging Ford with them is why Ford brings up their dad. And he learns it’s perfectly manly to stand up for yourself and your interests.
Plus it totally sets it up to have Stanley love Dipper’s birthmark because it’s like permanent “little stars”.
“It was my first experience with social media and kind of reaching out with fans back and forth like that. And they hated me. Hated me. Because they hated the character, and they hated what the character was doing. So I had to deal with that. I tried to get them past the character - it’s not me! - but they were not listening to me at all, it was so difficult, the fans were insane, and it was a real shock for me. But looking back on it now, I think it was the best first job I could have had, for so many reasons. I’m actually really glad I had that experience before The Flash. I definitely appreciate it when people enjoy my work and say nice things, but I also can read negative things now and not be bothered. Because I love what I’m doing, and I focus on that. And you know, in another way, I think Glee also helped to humble me a little bit. It was just such a grand-scale thing, and there were these actors my age who had become big stars on that show, and suddenly I was working with them. So to be such a small part of something that was such a grand-scale show, it kind of humbled me going forward with everything, I think.”
