why does he have like 60 names

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: I'm so confused about grunkle Stan. Is Stan the author or is he really dead? Are they twins? What's our Stan's real name? What's Dipper's real name for that matter? Which one is the Twins' grandfather? Or are neither the grandfather and there's another sibling? How old are they if the author left 30 years ago and they were kids 50 years ago? Like 60? How could they have not had to leave their kids? Do Mabel and Dipper's parents know about this? Why did they not just come clean? What was on the other side of the portal? DOES ANYTHING MAKE SENSE ANYMORE?
