20 + dipper and mabel!!! if it's not too much to ask :)
This is your PSA that Restart by @ursamajjor is honestly one of my most favorite post-Weirdmageddon fics, and I wish more people had seen it. It’s written so poignantly and I reread it often. That being said, this is based on it!
But if you’re short on time, the tl;dr is basically Dipper finally succumbing to all his wounds from Weirdmageddon.
[20. “I’ll protect you no matter what…even if it kills me.”]
Stan’s outcry from the front of the Shack draws an abrupt end to her conversation with Grenda, but the moment Mabel pivots on her heel to face him, whatever words she’d been planning to say die in her mouth.
As if it’s triggered some honed response of survival, Ford flies past her without another beat.
