Cary Grant, born Archibald Alexander Leach

(January 18, 1904 – ∞)

I’ve often been accused by critics of being myself onscreen. But being oneself is more difficult than you’d suppose.

So I realized that Weirdmageddon Part 3 has ties to every episode

Sorry, some of these are fairly loosely done. Warning, there’s a lot of “They still have this character” sorry. Seriously, upon finishing this, some of these just kind of suck. But they still all tie to the finale

Tourist Trapped - The Gnomes show up. The series starts and ends with Dipper narrating. Dipper gets a new hat in the first episode, the one with the Pine Tree, and the last, Wendy’s

The Legend of the Gobblewonker - The Gobblewonker is part of the robot. Also McGucket uses his beard to operate a stick shift in both episodes

Headhunters - Wax Larry King’s head is back, fascinating

The Hand That Rocks the Mabel - Gideon being cute, in the finale he says he’s tied of being cute

The Inconveniencing - They finally turn 13, something Dipper lied to Wendy to get in with her group

Dipper vs. Manliness -  Manotaur comes back

Double Dipper - Grenda, Candy and Pacifica come back again. Clones 3 & 4 are also in the credits

Irrational Treasure - Quintin P. Trembley appears in the end credits

The Time Traveler’s Pig - Waddles. Also Dipper grabbing the bag of ice to help Wendy’s black eye could foreshadow her place on the Bill Cipher Wheel

Fight Fighters - Rumble McSkirmish is there to help fight

Little Dipper - The Growth/Shrink Ray is used against Bill

Summerween - Mabel brings this up when trying to restore Stan’s memory

Boss Mabel - In both episodes there’s a sign displayed that says “Under New Management.” They also aired two years apart to the day

Bottomless Pit! - In Dipper’s story “Voice Over” McGucket refers to himself as a “part time inventor” in the finale, he makes millions with patents on his inventions and buys the Northwest Manor

The Deep End - Mr. Poolcheck makes a reappearance outside of Buzz’s Autobarn

Carpet Diem - Though not exactly the same way, both features a pair of twins switching places. In Carpet Diem Experiment 78 causes Dipper and Mabel (among several others) to switch bodies. In the finale, Stan and Ford dress up as each other so Bill will go into Stan’s mind

Boyz Crazy - Sev’ral Times is shown in the finale

Land Before Swine - A dinosaur makes up one of the robot’s arms

Dreamscaperers - Stan says he’s surprised Bill doesn’t remember his mind, a reference to when Bill entered it in this episode

Gideon Rises - Stan and Ford reenact the pose where Mabel holds onto Dipper and saves their lives. Main difference is they’re going up

Scary-oke - Zombies appear in the cemetery

Into the Bunker - Weirdmageddon is possibly what the author (Ford) planned to hide in that bunker for as long as he could

The Golf War -  There’s at least one Lilliputtian in the shack during the finale

Sock Opera - In Sock Opera Bill says “I have big plans.” Meaning he planned Weirdmageddon, and subsequently needs Dipper kept in the dark as much as possible to help his plans.

Soos and the Real Girl - Melody comes back when they show Soos running the shack

Little Gift Shop of Horrors - In both episodes Grenda is given highly dangerous technology. In Little Gift Shop of Horrors, story “Abaconings” she is given a jetpack Waddles made. In the finale, she is given a glove that controls a very large fist. Both dangerous, both hilarious.

Society of the Blind Eye - The Memory Erasing Gun comes back

Blendin’s Game - In this episode Stan hired Soos. In the finale, Soos became the manager

The Love God - Robbie’s parents make a reappearance

Northwest Mansion Mystery - Marius also appears in the end credits

Not What He Seems - Ford joined the main cast in this episode, in addition, the portal being used in this episode is what caused the rift that allowed Weirdmageddon to happen

A Tale of Two Stans - The ships Stan and Ford are on now is dubbed “The Stan O’ War II” a reference to the “Stan O’ War” from this episode

Dungeons, Dungeons & More Dungeons - In both episodes Ford needs to be saved

The Stanchurian Candidate - Mayor Befufftlefumpter comes back as a zombie in the finale

The Last Mabelcorn - The hair protects the main body of the robot

Roadside Attraction - In both episodes, Stan rips on himself. In Roadside Attraction, he’s talking about how his way of flirting stinks. In the finale though, he talks about he never used his mind for anything good. Stan also jokes about him being an amnesiac, oh the foreshadowing

Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future - This episode kind of caused the Weirdmageddon, so… yeah I’m counting that

Weirdmageddon Part 1 - Gideon’s punishment is showed in the finale

Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality - There’s still all of the people shown from the end here. Dipper also said that he wouldn’t go with Ford in this episode, he returns home with Mabel in the finale

That’s it. The finale has a tie to all other 39 episodes.

A concern about Gravity Falls:

What is with the mothers???

Starting with the most recent and most appearing we have Mrs. Northwest

Who has one of the creepiest smiles I’ve seen ever (definitely a Stepford Wives reference…)

Then in the latest episode we have this gem

Notice how Preston Northwest clearly lays out who will survive: him, Pacifica, and the butler (until they eat him) BUT HE DOESN’T MENTION HIS WIFE!

This man is literally willing to save his butler to be eaten before his wife. That’s considering that he wasn’t planning to eat her first.

Next on the list is the lovely Mrs. Gleeful

…not sure much more needs to be said…

And last but (actually kinda) least, we have Wendy’s mother! Or, at least a mention of Wendy’s mother

“Alas, Wendy’s mom is no longer with her” -Alex’s Hirsch

Note to self: don’t have kids in Gravity Falls.

Though given the way the show is going I’m not sure this is much better.

Gravity Falls Alternate Universe: Vampire and Hunter

Dipper Pines (Demon Hunter) is the main protagonist of the story and long lost twin sister, Mabel Pines. He was cursed by the demon, Bill Cipher. His left eye is very powerful and was given by his late master, Ford Pines. 

Pacifica Northwest is the leading character of the story. She is a vampire princess and daughter of King Dracula, Mr. Preston Northwest. She later realizes that she won’t find a new fiancee and disobey with her father. She truly love Sir Johnny (familiar with Dipper Pines) for long time ago (19th century).

Mabel Pines is a beautiful witch and along with her bestfriends, Candy and Grenda. They were kidnapped by the evil witch, Giffany and left Dipper Pines. She was sought to kill Demon Hunter as her master’s request. They also has lost to their memorize. 

Gideon Gleeful is the spoiled mayor of Gravity Falls. He has known Bill Cipher since his childhood days. He immediately fell in love with Mabel Pines. He became more jealous of Dipper Pines. 

Bill Cipher is the most powerful and immortal king demon character of the story. He is friendly, gentleman and adopt of a spoiled child, Gideon Gleeful when his parents were killed by King Dracula. 

Here’s something very important from Matt Braly’s AMA last night. Gideon was just a normal kid before he found journal 2. He found the book just like Dipper did but at a younger age. Unlike many people have said, Gideon wasn’t just some spoilt, greedy kid, he was completely innocent until he found journal 2. This could have shown how the Journal’s knowledge really is dangerous. Also, with the majority of the fandom hating poor Gideon this could have been some good development (or the closest we would get to) for Gid. Look at how Pacifica went from one of the most unpopular characters to most fans loving her after her development in TGW and NMM. So many fans hate Gideon and I can’t help but feel this would have been so good to see how his character changed, and show us that he’s not all bad.

I’m really upset they deleted this scene (and I have no idea why they did!) all I can say is I really hope Gideon gets some more development when he returns.

So what character in Gravity Falls DOESN’T Have serious issues with their Family/Parents? Wendy admitted to being stressed about her family in SotBE, Soos’ dad was never around, Pacifica’s parents were awful…

It’s kind of jarring that the most healthy and loving families in the show are Robbie with his cheerful undertaker parents and The Pines, which consists of a grumpy old conman, a paranoid twelve year old and his hyperactive and bubbly twin sister with her pet pig.

Come On Eileen!

REVERSE NORTHWEST FAMILY!

Forever living the 80s style! The Mr and Mrs constantly bring up their favorite time period ever single day, and Pacifica could listen to them talk about the day they met for hours. The Northwests are the most generous family in Gravity Falls, in fact, if there was such a award for generosity, the Northwests would have six of them. Pacifica rarely doesn’t get what she wants, yet she does not boast about her wealth. She would be more than happy to lend a hand, and frankly, the parents would not mind at all.

The OG Parents were restricting, controlling and abusive, while the Reverse, they give Pacifica a bit too much freedom and little discipline. Pacifca could walk around Gravity Falls and into the forest without supervision and the Northwest couple would think nothing of it. Pacifca knows they love her, but she sometimes wanders if she is even noticeable at all to them.

Animation Error 383: Same background used as the last error, but since it’s a different scene, it counts as a different error number. No hole in the water tower from the UFO last episode.

Yeah, this is horrifying, but look at Pacifica’s mother.
In the first picture, it seems like Pacifica and her are holding onto each other as a safety blanket kinda thing.
But in the second image, it looks as if Mrs. Northwest is forcefully keeping Pacifica in front of her, despite Pacifica obviously wanting not to be there.
Mrs. Northwest gives little to no regard for her daughter’s safety.
She’d rather put Pacifica in potential danger than let her run and/or hide.
Let that sink in.

Dippica: You’re the Worst

Word count: 2, 502
Summary: Dinner at the Northwest Mansion is a bit awkward. (This is set when they’re going into grade twelve)
A/N: Aaaaaaaaaand done! That’s the last Dippica prompt! Thank you so much to everyone who read my stuff over the last few weeks, I really appreciate it. You have no idea how encouraging you all have been, and I am extremely grateful for your kindness. Hopefully I can write more for this fandom in the future!

“Dipper and I are going to Scotland next week,” Pacifica said as she spooned a mouthful of bisque to her lips.

Dipper’s spoon clattered to the table and his eyes bulged from their sockets as if Pacifica had just announced to the table at large that she was pregnant. When he gained his faculties, he glared at Pacifica across the table, and would have lunged at her, too, if his formal wear wasn’t so constricting. The fitted suit jacket and stiff trousers (Pacifica’s idea) kept him in his seat, but that didn’t stop him from mouthing, “I’m going to kill you” when Mr. and Mrs. Northwest exchanged a shell-shocked look.

Pacifica didn’t seem fazed; he would dare to say that she looked like she was enjoying the panic her statement instilled in Dipper and her parents. The only one who didn’t seem to have noticed the upset was Mabel, who was discretely tucking one of the dinner rolls into her purse for Waddles.

You’re The Worst- Part Four

Chapter 4: You’re Stronger Than You Look

AN: Please excuse the Chemistry. I was a Health Science Major, we did Bio.

“Everyone’s project proposal should be on my desk,” Mr. Crawford announced to the class at 8:21am. Dipper glanced at Pacifica who nodded. “If it is not, it is as of now, late.” As there was no shuffling or crying it was assumed everyone had turned their projects in on time.

“Acid and Bases. Can anyone tell me what is the difference?” The class was still all careful to avoid eye contact. “Did anyone do last night’s reading?” He glanced around the room. “Mr. Pines, if you would be so kind as to tell us the difference between an acid and a base?” Mr. Crawford asked.

“An acid is a compound that, when dissolved in water breaks down to form a hydrogen ion, while bases break down to form hydroxide ions in water.”

“And what are some other differences, Mr. Duncan?”

“Acids are sour, bases are bitter,” the short black haired kid in front of Dipper responded.

“Correct, and since we won’t be tasting the different compounds to figure out if they are bitter or not for safety reasons, what are some tests that can decipher the difference for us, Ms. Hernandez?” Mr. Crawford called to the red haired girl in the back corner.

“Um, with the litmus paper?” she guessed.

“Perfect. Which is what you will be using today. You have before you six mystery clear compounds, a small tray, tongs, and litmus paper. You will squeeze the compound into the tray then label if they are an acid or a base on the worksheet you should have printed out last night. Throughout the course of this year you will be performing several tests on these compounds and by the end of the year you will be able to correctly tell me what 1-6 are if you want to pass this class.” There were murmurs of concern throughout the class. “Well, what are you waiting for? Get your aprons and goggles.” He gestured to the class.

“You weren’t kidding,” Dipper said under his breath.

“About what?” Pacifica’s brows were drawn together in confusion.

“He is a hardass,” Dipper deadpanned. They shared a giggle before catching themselves and quickly busied themselves with their protective gear.

Dipper coughed. “So, we should, uh, start with number one.”

“Yeah,” Pacifica agreed. “I think we should label the tray, so we don’t get confused.” She held up a sharpie.

“Good,” his voice squeaked. He cleared his throat speaking deeper, “I mean good.”

Pacifica wrote out the numbers on both sides of the tray. Dipper raised a brow. “We should do it twice just to make sure,” she defended.

“That’s, uh, good thinking.” He rubbed the back of his neck.

“Thank you.” She smiled to herself but turned to hide it from Dipper. “I’ll just…” She indicated the prelab, lab, and post lab worksheet.

“Right. and I’ll just…” Dipper poured three drops of mystery liquid one into the divots labeled one. He grabbed a tiny piece of litmus paper with the tongs, and making sure the tongs did not to touch the liquid, placed the paper in one of the compounds. It almost immediately turned blue.

“Mystery compound, trial one; base,” Pacifica said aloud as she wrote it down. Dipper nodded. He then repeated the procedure with the second divot labeled one. It, too, almost immediately turned blue. “Confirmed base?”

Dipper nodded. They continued on with the other five compounds in a similar manner. When they were finished they glanced around and noticed they were the few who were.

They stared at each other awkwardly. Pacifica bit her lip before breaking the silence. “You’re going to investigate aren’t you?” Pacifica asked.

“What are you talking about?” Dipper asked.

“You know what I’m talking about. The,” she glanced around the room, “the whole coma thing? You can’t tell me that’s not up your weird little alley.”

“What? Me? Alley? I don’t have an alley…I have a forest. Well, it’s not technically mine. It’s my Grunkle’s. Well technically it’s not his either. I mean technically it’s Gravity Fall’s forest. Which would-”

“Dipper, stop deflecting.”

“Why do you even care, Pacifica?”

“Because now I know this thing can affect kids too. If it was just old people, that’s different. I told you, if I’m in danger I want to know.”

“It’s probably a coincidence, Pacifica. Don’t worry your fragile little brain about it.”

She scowled. “You’re-”

“The worst? I know. But coming from you, I’ll take it as a compliment.” Dipper smirked.

Pacifica punched his stomach causing Dipper to wheeze.

“You’re stronger than you look,” he managed to gasp out.

“And don’t you forget it. I think this goes without saying, but you can clean this up.” Pacifica spilled some of the compound on their table creating a mess.

“What? I am not-”

Pacifica raised her hand.

“Yes, Ms. Northwest?” Mr Crawford asked.

“Mr. Crawford, I’m not feeling too well, may I please be excused?”

“Of course, I’ll write you a note.” He rummaged through his desk procuring a note and signing it for her. She gave Dipper one last glare before walking out the door.

“Mr. Pines,” Mr. Crawford exclaimed suddenly beside him, “what have you done to your desk! Clean this up immediately or you’ll get 5% docked from your grade.”


“Why didn’t you text me guava?” Mabel asked Dipper outside by the science building.

“Because I was handling it.”

“Getting punched in the stomach and then asked to stay after class doesn’t seem like handling it.”

“Mabel, there are more important things than Pacifica acting like a bit-witch,” Dipper explained.

“Like?”

“Like finding out what’s causing people to age rapidly!”

“Oh, that.”

“Yes! That. Mabel, something out there is causing people to fall into a coma. What if next time it doesn’t stop at that? We have to stop it before that happens,” Dipper urged.

“Okay, okay. But you couldn’t find anything in the journal,” Mabel reasoned.

“That just means the author never encountered it.”

“How are we supposed to figure out what did it without the journal’s help?” Mabel asked.

“With some good, old fashioned investigating.”

“Why does that sound like it’s going to be boring?”

“It won’t be. We’ll go to the new crime scene and look around for clues. You said it happened at the park. You’ve seen that park. No one’s cleaned it for years! We’d find-”

“A lot of gross, boring trash that would have nothing to do with what happened.”

“When did you become the logical one?” Dipper asked.

“I just really don’t want to ‘investigate’ garbage.”

“Fine. We’ll find a witness. Someone must have seen something.” The bell rang indicating break was over.

“How are we supposed to find someone when we don’t know who we’re supposed to be looking for?” Mabel asked.

“I don’t know, Mabel, but we can’t just sit around and do nothing. Something big is going on and we have to figure out what it is.”

Okay, I’ve been wondering this for a while, but what specifically did Blind Ivan DO that got him the equivalent of his head stuck on a spike (but worse bc he’s still alive and being used as a stick shift). At this point, he already underwent his “Disney punishment”, he had his memory wiped and became Toot Toot Mcbumbersnazzle with no memory of his past but for some reason Alex wanted to show this as well. We see other members of the Blind Eye but they don’t get the same treatment. What happened in Ivan’s past that made Bill do this? The only other person we see get this treatment is Mr. Northwest when he got his face rearranged. It seems like Bill had a little place reserved for Ivan in Bill’s circles of Hell, and I’m curious if he made some sort of deal with Bill? He definitely wanted to forget something, which was why he was in the SOTBE in the first place. I have  a feeling there’s more history there that will maybe be answered in the journal.
