Summary: “I have a surprise for you!”
“Those words never end well for me.”

Nightmares are keeping Dipper from sleeping. In an effort to help him recover from what happened to him in the hideaway of the Society of the Blind Eye, Mabel puts a plan into motion that involves a bit of a change in scenery from their usual summers spent in Gravity Falls. A slow, normal summer spent in Lakeville, city of lakes, full of dates, frog hunts, and fun with friends might be just the thing to take Dipper’s mind off it. Not to mention give him a few extra weeks with his boyfriend and get the comfort he needs in the aftermath of Gideon’s torture.  As they get used to this new relationship, it’s ups and downs, Wirt and Dipper also get to begin to piece together the puzzles that make up each other and build upon the foundation they set up in Gravity Falls.


Chapter 7

Two days after the date, Dipper was still mentally fawning over it. Nothing could have made it better. Well, maybe meeting an actual witch, but they could always go back. It was only a train ride away, after all, and he didn’t really think that Wirt would mind taking him again. He wasn’t sure if he’d go for meeting a witch, but Wirt kept surprising him. How he managed to be both anxious and agreeable was a mystery.

He loved that Wirt was a mystery. He loved that he didn’t necessarily have to solve that mystery. Sure, he wanted to understand him better and find out every little fact he could, but it wasn’t the same. For him, a mystery typically involved the uncovering of said mystery, the hunt for puzzle pieces, putting the puzzle together, standing back and admiring a job well done, and moving on.

He could probably gather pieces forever and still not have the puzzle solved. He didn’t want to. He didn’t want to get to the solution and be done. He enjoyed simply knowing there was a mystery there and loving it. Loving him.
