There are two things in this photo that are getting to me. The bell and the look on Pacifica’s face. I’d love to analyze this but I don’t really have enough information to form a solid guess. But it unnerves me quite a bit. What kind of parent has a bell that they use to, by the look on her face, order their child around?
I don’t like this one bit. I swear, if Gravity Falls brings in child abuse I’m gonna flip because 1) that is totally brave of Alex and 2) it’s something that isn’t addressed in a lot of shows (let alone cartoons).
