So I was looking at some background art from the new gravity falls episode, you know some pretty nice stuff as usual when
huh the “pine tree” symbol that’s kind of interesting I mean it probably doesn’t mean anything they are in a forest.
Ok I know its not super strange to see Bill symbols drawn around Gravity Falls but this isn’t Gravity Falls, this is some tourist attractions with deadly half human half spiders things.
The thing I found really weird was that this symbol was drawn with detail. Usually we see basic symbols, just showing Bills shape and eye.
We know that all these symbols were put here by Ford when he worshiped Bill before the Mystery Shack was the Mystery Shack.
Buy any other bill symbols we’ve seen have either been in the journals, put there by Ford or as we’ve seen the in places where history took big leaps. The pyramids, great philosophers and mathematicians, ect. I’m not going to go through all the details.
Anyways so that got me thinking: what has happened here that would involve Bill? There’s the half human half spider thing that’s going on up there but my guess is that Bill is looking for bigger things.
So who would have been up there? Ford. Ford would have heard of the half human half spider stories and i 100% GUARANTEE he would have gone to research them. Also, this carving couldn’t be older then oh, idk 30 years maybe judging by the fact that it’s in Oregon state, a rainy humid place that is in no way the best for preserving dead wood. They probably have to replace them every couple of decades due to rot.
Not to mention, this carving looks like something you’d doodle when you’re obsessed with something and bored. Bored, idk, maybe waiting for monster half spider half humans..??
Conclusion: Ford was completely obsessed with bill and carved him in there so that he could watch or so that maybe they could even talk or maybe just cause he was bored:)
also idk if theres any significance with bill being under the pine tree symbol… but im just going to leave that for now
