THIS IS PROBABLY REALLY WEIRD BUT I WAS READING YOUR TAGS (i tagvomit so it's a habit to check the tags) AND YOU MENTIONED A HERO!MABEL AND VILLAIN!DIPPER AU??? TELL ME ABOUT IT PLEASE PLEASE I THINK I NEED THIS LIKE I NEED AIR

Erika, our time has come

Okay it looks like you found the text post I made, so you get the gist that about 10-12 years prior (which would be present show time) the twins both thought each other died, and handled their grief in vastly different ways. Mabel went on living as best as she could without her bro, grew closer to Grunkle Stan, dedicated her life to exploring the supernatural to be close to Dipper in spirit. Bill tricked Dipper into thinking Mabel was dead and then tricked him again into making a bad deal for his sister’s life, which backfired because his sister wasn’t really dead, Dipper just didn’t know that at the time.

Assumedly, Dipper was taken under Bill’s wing and survived through his guidance after the catastrophe happened. Once Dip’s taught how to control his demonic powers, he tries EVERYTHING to bring Mabel back and still nothing works. He doesn’t realize he’s been fooled until he runs into Mabel 10+ years later while they’re both hunting down the same supernatural artifact and it’s like a miracle for them both. Erika and I have kind of been developing this together. We agreed that Mabel would be dressed in typical adventurer clothes (t-shirt, ponytail, combat boots, backpack, etc.), and Dip would be dressed pretty nice in like a button down shirt and loafers, like he just waltzed out of some prestigious college. And as the story progresses and its made more apparent that Dip is not as nice as he seems, he dresses even nicer.
