THERES GRAVITY FALLS GOODIES SOMEWHERE IN THE WOODS
Alright, the title makes me seem crazy but hear me out.
So the cypher on the bus seat says something like this: KEY: “Hidden deep within the woods a buried treasure awaits” DECODED: “statues found beyond the rusty gates”.
So I think this is implying that there’s two treasures. A statue, and buried treasure.
Where have we seen a real life statue in Gravity Falls?
BOOM. BEYOND SOME RUSTY GATES IN OREGON THERE’S A STATUE OF BILL.
…Deep within the woods is a very vague description of where we can find treasure. How does Alex expect us to know where he is talking about?
UNLESS THEY ALREADY GAVE US THE EXACT COORDINATES.
This is from themysteryofgravityfalls website.
And guess where those coordinates take us to!
SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE IN THE FUCKING WOODS IN OREGON. https://www.google.com/maps/place/44°47'36.7%22N+121°33'12.2%22Wemail@example.com,-121.555591,574m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0
ANNNDD The spot is not too far from a road. So it is reachable.
So you might be thinking I’m still crazy. I might be overthinking this, and losing my mind because it is 4am and I have been figuring this out nonstop.
But a reporter for Disney (aka this guy isn’t a fan, he works for this shit) Posted these tweets:
BTW, the guy that runs that Twitter account is Reddit user GravityFallsCipher and he’s usually the first to post trailers for GF and stuff. He’s the real deal.
SO WHAT CAN WE CONCLUDE?
1. Alex Hirsch and the Gravity Falls team are all fucking geniuses.
2. There’s treasure! They want us to make our own mysteries!
3. This is the greatest show ever.
THIS IS JUST MY GUESSES. THIS IS NOT 100% ACCURATE. IF YOU LIVE SOMEWHAT CLOSE TO THE COORDINATES, GO AND SEE IF YOU’D LIKE. I AM NOT AN OFFICIAL SOURCE AND I JUST TRIED TO PUT TWO AND TWO TOGETHER AND THAT’S WHAT I GOT.
And finally, to girls everywhere, I am with you. On nights when you feel alone, I am with you. When people doubt you or dismiss you, I am with you. I fought everyday for you. So never stop fighting, I believe you. As the author Anne Lamott once wrote, “Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.” Although I can’t save every boat, I hope that by speaking today, you absorbed a small amount of light, a small knowing that you can’t be silenced, a small satisfaction that justice was served, a small assurance that we are getting somewhere, and a big, big knowing that you are important, unquestionably, you are untouchable, you are beautiful, you are to be valued, respected, undeniably, every minute of every day, you are powerful and nobody can take that away from you.
When Ford was trying to convince Dipper to be his apprentice, he says “I’ve been reading your additions to my journal, and I’m impressed with your potential!”
The page the journal flips open to is from “Tourist Trapped”.
Mabel was the one who discovered that gnomes have a weakness to leaf blowers. Mabel was the one who found a way to trick and defeat the gnomes. Mabel discovered that, not Dipper.
And while yes, Dipper has made some amazing discoveries and contributed so much to the journals on his own, I think it says something that this is the page we see.
Despite Ford’s somewhat dismissal of Mabel, she’s still clever, and still valuable. Particularly to Dipper. She makes him stronger, and braver. Many people have already pointed out how Dipper is at his best when he’s protecting those around him.
Mabel has helped him by being there with him. But let’s not overlook that Mabel is a mystery solver in her own right. She is brave, and smart, and knows how to problem-solve. Sometimes, she just has a sillier solution.
