Just read your Ford-and-12-year-old-Molly-both-fall-through-the-portal au drabble thing, and I'm curious: when Stan gets the portal up and running, does he end up punching Ford instead of the other way round? What is their reunion like in general? How quickly does Stan forgive Ford, if at all? How is Molly's relationship with both her father and uncle changed by growing up traveling with Ford? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS AND THAT DRABBLE AND ART WAS SOME GOOD HEARTBREAKING ANGST THANK/CURSE YOU
The first thing Stan does when Ford and Molly come through the Portal is hug Molly. Ford hangs back and lets them, when Stan’s done greeting his daughter he does turn on Stan, but Molly’s stops him and there is no fight.
Instead of Ford saying he needs to leave in the Hallway they have a fight about how Stan missed out on seeing his daughters whole life, and Ford throws back that if Stanley hadn’t tackled him like an animal and thought things through first Molly never would have fallen through. Things sort of disperse out of that and they pretty much just avoid each other and fail to talk.
Instead of demanding a thank you at the circle, he demands a sorry, and than the finale continues as usual. The big difference is that Molly suggests she takes the memory gun, but Stan says no to that and does it himself.
Molly still loves her father very much, but she was seven when she last saw him and doesn’t really know him anymore, though she wants to. Until the finale hits there is lots of awkward situations that don’t go anywhere. She hangs around Ford more because they’ve been around each other all the time for the last thirty years, and all the little in jokes and asides they have drives Stan crazy. He mocks those situations a lot because he is jealous.
Once he loses his memories and starts regaining them, all three of them decide to go on the Stan-of-War together, and it gives Molly some much needed time to reconnect with her father and get to know him again. Afterwards she quickly gets her GED and a degree in Botany, ending up with her phd in roughly the same time That Ford got his.
