Fancy parties with the obscenely rich and her hovering parents are a part of her life Pacifica’s come to expect by now. Fancy parties with her now 6-foot-tall boyfriend in a tux? Not so much. Dancing would be so much easier if she didn’t have to look up at him now.
Or Dipper and Pacifica go to a ball, and it goes about as well as everyone’s expecting.
He stumbled down the hall, a fury in his veins. The two Pines twins were running as fast as they could from the furious demon. In a moment of weakness his human form had slipped and his real form stood tall. Or at least the form he had taken in the moment he had let his humanity slip through his grasp.
“Sssshhhoooting Staaaaarrrrr, Pinnnnnee Treeeeeee.” he grumbled, smashing a few walls in the process. The girl was giggling, adrenaline running through her veins as she and her brother took off farther down the hall. This seemed to make Bill angerier.
“Pinee Treeee, if you stop nowww I’ll let you livveee.” said boy glanced back just slightly, enough for Bill to see the pain in his eyes. But he kept running. Any promise Bill offered him now was worthless. He had already broken so many.
“Pine Treeeeeeeeee.” he snarled again, this time more desperate. Dipper slowed a bit, almost contemplating stopping, but Mabel pulled him along once again, begging him not to give into Bill’s hypnotic words.
However, since Dipper slowed, they were both closer to the furious demon, giving him the opportunity to scoop up the twins. His grip tightened around them, and he lifted them up, almost suffocating the two.
“Youuuuu neeeeedd to learnnn, Pinnnne Treeee.” his words were slurred, and his eye twitched everywhere. Dipper adverted his gaze and went limp within Bill’s grasp. Mabel huddled towards him, still kicking her feet in a futile attempt to escape Bill’s grasp.
His pounding footsteps alerted the two older twins. Sucking in a deep breath, Ford gave his sibling a gentle hug and they stood their ground waiting for the demon to return.
“I caughhht them, Fordsy. Now… which one should I kill first?” he questioned, holding the two barely nineteen year olds. His eye begrudgingly flashing between a pine tree and a shooting star. When it landed on the shooting star he almost let out a sigh of relief. He raised his hands up reflexively, directed towards Mabel. She shut her eyes and let out a slight sob.
“Wait! Bill! Ford told me the equation, I’ll give it to you, just don’t kill her!” he pleaded, squirming within the demon’s grasp.
“Well, why didn’t you just say sooooo, Pine Tree?” the demon smirked, setting them both down and taking a humanoid form once again
He stuck his hand out and brushed a bit of blonde from his face. Dipper shot Stan and Ford a look, a slight laugh escaping the demon’s lips.
“Let’s get this show on the road.” Bill seemed oddly excited to say the least. He’d only ever been in Dipper’s body (deal wise) once or twice, but never in his mind.
“Dipper, you can’t!” Stan pleaded, reaching out to him.
“Dipper, my boy, listen to reason.” Ford requested, eyes showing no form of dire urgency.
“I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.” he sobbed, fingers gently meeting Bill’s. They intertwined fingers, fire flaring up around them.
Dipper’s mindscape was exactly how Bill would’ve imagined it. Dense forest covered every aspect, shrouding them both in a hazy brush of fog. It was romantic.
“You know I never would’ve killed you right, Pine Tree?” he murmured, fingers brushing the boy’s cheek.
“I’m so sorry, Bill…” he let out a light sob.
“Shhh, there’s nothing to be sorry about. As soon as you show me the equation you can become my queen and we can be together for the rest of eternity.” Bill hummed, finger’s trailing to his neck, breath ghosting over his lips.
“I don’t know the equation. Bill, we’re gonna die in here.” his voice was quiet as Bill’s fury grew.
“What the hell do you mean?” A spark of blue lit up the trees behind them.
“They started it.” Dipper’s chocolate orbs flickered to the fire illuminating the demon’s features. “I- I think they knew about us. Ford told me he was going to erase my memory anyways if I didn’t break it off with you. He wants me to be perfect all the time, and it’s really shitty.
But I can’t let you destroy a world that means so much to me. I can’t just sit by your side and watch as you kill innocent people…” Dipper gave Bill a gentle look. “I’ve loved you since I was like sixteen. And I know you aren’t all bad. So I want you to stop my heart. I know you can do it from here. I’ll go down with you, because that’s what a queen does for their king right?”
“That’s right, Pine Tree.” it was soft and innocent. Two things Bill wasn’t.
“You aren’t mad?”
“We’re going to the dreamscape, Pine Tree. And there’s no one in this world who I’d want to explore it with more than you.” The flames were closing in, suffocating them.
“Bill?” The demon grabbed his hips and pulled him close.
“Me too, Pine Tree. But death is a pretty big adventure, isn’t it?” He molded their lips together as the flames consumed them.
Dipper shot up from bed, the multitude of noise in California keeping him from getting a good night’s rest. Summer in Gravity Falls had been uneventful and he wasn’t looking forward to goingback anytime soon. The only question on his mind, the simplicity of…. why did he cry every time he saw a flash of blue eyes and blonde hair? And the echoing statement in his mind that played over and over; “But a King’s job is to die for his queen, if that is what they need.”
