Do you ever wonder what would’ve happened if Dipper did end up taking on that apprenticeship? Weirdmageddon never took place (even though the threat of Bill still lingers), and Mabel made the mature decision to let Dipper go through with his ambitions to stay in Gravity Falls with Ford. And Mabel went back to Piedmont.

Dipper ends up getting busy all the time, though - and the two only share video chats every once and a blue moon. 


love the piggy!


Summary: Slowly, Stan’s memories are beginning to come back and he can just manage to figure out what his relationships with these people are. Niece, nephew, brother. But what exactly is his relationship with Soos?

Stanuary Prompt: Memories


“Huh. So it sounds like we’ve been through a lot.” Stan said, as Mabel flipped through the scrapbook to figure out what to show him next.

Their group was still centered around the armchair in the dilapidated Shack, and due to Mabel going over the first couple of weeks of this past summer, Stan felt like he was finally getting a handle on who he was. At the very least, he knew more than he did when he walked in, and more memories were tickling at the edges of his mind. His name was Stan. The two little kids were Dipper and Mabel and he was their Grunkle, whatever that was, but long story short, they were family. The pig was Waddles and was the bane of his existence, but he couldn’t get rid of it because Mabel loved the little stinker. The other old guy was his… brother. Yeah, that sounded about right. That just left…

As Dipper and Mabel argued over what they should look at next, Stan turned his gaze to Soos.

He knew that Soos was his employee, the best one he’d ever had. After all, he could vaguely remember the guy… kid… man-child working for him. But at the same time, he could remember that just this past summer, Soos was at a lot of family events. He could also remember other things: graduation, a couple attempts at birthday parties, science fairs, sports events, some holiday shindig…

You wouldn’t do all of those things with someone who’s just an employee, right?

He tried to puzzle it out in his head, and didn’t realize he was staring and frowning at Soos until the overgrown kid noticed and smiled at him.

“Something wrong, Mr. Pines?” Soos asked, surprisingly chipper despite the circumstances. “Wait, is there something on my face.” He patted his face, in search of something that wasn’t actually there. Still, his words stopped the conversation among the other members of the family as they turned to look at Stan.

“Uh, why do you call me that?” Stan couldn’t help but ask.

“Call you what?” He seemed truly confused at the question.

“‘Mr. Pines.’” Stan pointed out. “I mean, aren’t you my son, or something? It seems like a weird thing to call a parent.”

Silence descended as everyone stared at him.

However, it was the only thing that made sense to Stan. That’s why he’d be so involved in the kid’s life. Plus, he was probably training him to take over this place, hence why he normally treated him like an employee and paid him.


“Uh…” Dipper seemed to be looking for the right words, while Ford looked just as confused, clearly unsure of the situation.

“Well,” Mabel said, “you’re not necessarily wrong…” There seemed to be a shine growing in her eyes as a grin began to grow.

Soos just seemed frozen in place, which really wasn’t helping Stan’s confusion.

Suddenly, a bit of memory trickled in and Stan blinked. “Oh, wait.” He winced. “You live with your… Abuelita? Something like that? Probably shouldn’t have – ”

“Mr. Pines!” Soos burst into tears and swept him up into a huge bear hug.

Stan grunted at the force of the embrace and awkwardly, patted him on the back. “Oh, okay. I guess we’re doing this.” He grumbled a bit.

“Family hug!” Mabel declared, and she dragged her brother and his brother to wrap around Soos and Stan.

It still wasn’t clear to Stan whether Soos was his son or not at that point.

However, as more memories came back to him over the next couple days, he came to a realization.

Stan smiled as he input the code to his personal safe (Dipper and Mabel’s birthday, Soos’s Birthday, and finally his and Ford’s birthday). This was a safe that only he knew about, as even Gideon hadn’t been able to locate it in a second hidden panel in his bedroom. Sitting in the stack of important papers in there, he pulled out adoption papers that were all filled out except for the final signatures and dates.

It was for one Soos Ramirez.

Though things technically weren’t official, Stan really did have a son.

AN: So the prompt for this week was Memories. I thought “Hey, with Stan’s memories scrambled, wouldn’t it be funny and yet sweet if he thought he was officially Soos’s Dad” (I mean, he totally is, but I want him to actually refer to himself as Soos’s dad). So this is the product. I need to write more about these two. Short this week, but I think you get the idea. Funnily enough the next part of Bridging the Gap will also go great with this week’s prompt.

@thesnadger Here’s the Stan and Soos fluff I promised.

Okay, okay I can’t hold it in anymore. I’ve kept this little au idea in secret for quite some time now, with only some friends knowing of it in Skype chats. I’ve even wrote some small ficlets over it and shared them with some, and I’ve been so anxious to share it with anyone else haha. But now I’ve got some courage to do it.

And I’m only gonna…put the main idea out and some little stuff out for now since it’s really late where I am right now haha. But yeah, it’s an AU based solely on Mabel.

But onto the main idea of the au (that I still can’t think of a name for lol): but basically it involves Mabel and her parents and Dipper getting into an accident, with Mabel (at the age of 5) being the only survivor. And as a result, Stan ends up taking her in and being her guardian. And does EVERYTHING he can to provide for her and keep her safe and happy in GF. It’s a big Mabel and Stan bonding au, basically (though Ford does show up later too.)


Take good care of that old man, Mabel.

I’m glad you like my art, thank you! I’m not really doing requests, per se. I’m more just doodling some suggestions from my inbox when I have some free time. XD So, thank you for the suggestion.

Stan and Memories

So I was brainstorming ideas for the “memories” prompt of Stanuary and this just popped into my head:

(Maybe it’s been done before and if it has, please direct me to it ^_^)

Bill spent time in a lot of people’s minds. What if Stan remembered not only all of his own memories but also the memories Bill saw?

What if he suddenly starts getting flashes of Dipper’s adventures over the summer like, “hmm I remember him telling me about that but this… This is like I was there.” And then he starts getting flashes from childhood but they’re not from his perspective. Soon he starts seeing nightmarish, otherworldly images and blood splattered across a journal page. And then he starts seeing things from what looks like a science-fi future. There’s a giant baby and a coliseum and he can see the fight between Mabel, Dipper, and Blendin from both Dipper and Blendin’s perspectives…
