who else is watching the commentaries on the bluray? I like hearing where all the ideas came from
>>
Yeah, I’ve only made it through about half of them but they’re pretty enjoyable and give good insight. I think I laughed the most when Alex was explaining why Stan kept the grifter at large picture.
>>
>>102260737
I cant even rewatch the show anymore, im still so mad over the ending and the whole debacle over the last few episodes. The only reason ill ever be excited for GF again is if alex gets off his lazy ass and makes another season.
>>
>>102260821
He made comics that include
>Padipica moments
>Mabel apologizing for causing Weirdmageddon
>young Stans bonding
>funny comic fourth wall breaking story
You might want to check it out, fixed a lot of problems people had with the show, including the ones you mentioned
>>
>>102260859
Its more then that, i feel the show was cut way too short, i still hate roadside attraction, i feel bitter about taking away the twins from gravity falls and about how its been 2 years without anymore episodes. The comic may be good but it doesnt heal it still.

I guess i feel personally offended the show ended when it did and the way it did, and how it was one of the few good shows on and had they made more seasons it could still be on even when everything else out now is on constant hiatuses, is complete garbage, or both.
>>
>>102260890
>personally offended

Jesus Christ anon. Stop acting like a jilted ex girlfriend, it’s been two fucking years. Even with all the problems I haven’t been able to find a cartoon to fill the hole gravity falls left behind when it ended so I’m happy for what it was.
>>
>>102260923
So what if its been two years, hirsch shit the bed and im still pissed over it, othings filled that hole like you said and the show is tainted from its last episodes and the fact that no new episodes will come out, it feels unfinished to me so i cant properly enjoy rewatching it because of that. Fuck
>>
>>102260890
If you listened to the commentary you would know that Alex’s co creative director bailed after season 1. Many of the best storyboard artists and creative assets were planning on leaving after season 2 because of the workload as well. Had it stuck around for a third season it probably would have been in worse quality than season 2B was and I doubt you would want a whole season of that.

Damn, i mean he shouldve just found better people to replace them, but that still sucks. At least theirs somewhat of an excuse why it went bad, unlike SVTFOE and how all its bad elements were all planned before hand by nefcy.
>>
>>102260940
You should be happy for what you got. Not what he seems was probably one of the best episode out of almost any cartoon I can think of. You could have lived in a time where you didn’t get to experience the show at all. I know you have a right to complain but I’m just tired of so many gravity falls threads that are nothing but bitterness. The show had a lot of amazing things despite the bad and it feels like no one wants to talk about anything but the bad anymore.
>>
Do they explain why Weirdmageddon doesn't work as a series finale?
>>
>>102260965
Replacing his lead artists with new people after two seasons would have been a disaster. He wouldn’t know how well they would work together or bounce ideas off one another, let alone if they could grasp the feel of the show. I think the storyboard artists for the final sequence in Not What he Seems who also did the zombie fight scene in Skary-oke had promised to leave after season two. That’s not going to be replaceable.
>>
>>102260737
This and the deleted scenes have been an absolute treat. I've found myself actually preferring the deleted intros for Into The Bunker and Scary-oke over the finished product. Alex and his crew had some really great ideas in there.

No, i wont be happy and ill always be mad. Everything now sucks, every fucking hack showrunner now is a disgrace to the renaissance we were experiencing in the earlier part of this decade, and the fact hirsch bailed out instead of continuing and setting a standard is a big part of why we get nothing but we bare bears ripoffs now.
>>102261015
I would rather have a different artstyle but a good show with different but still good writers then the unfished and rushed ending we got. Hirsch merely needed to find new better people.

Anon you need to move on. Being angry about it years after it aired isn’t healthy. Also think logically, you really think a single creator fumbling the writing for his show near the end of the series is responsible for all other cartoons being shit? Because that sounds like mass projection and not thinking reasonably that most cartoons are shit due to uninspired creators and lazy networks who don’t want to spend money.

And while the current state is mostly because of uncreative and lazy showrunners, i still feel hirsch has a part as to why cartoons suck now, and i still wish GF was still airing new episodes.

I don’t think the show was perfect by any means. I could write a long list of my issues with it and how it could have been better. I think roadside attraction was an awful episode and that weirdmageddon majorly dropped the ball. But being upset about it two years later and acting like he killed your parents is fucking stupid.

I’m trying to be polite but if a cartoon show having bad writing towards the end of it’s run is what counts as ruining your life you have to get some real problems.

I miss the show too and thought that the ending could have been better handled, but getting this buttmad at Alex after all the effort he put into making this show, even going so far as to voice about one-fourth of the main cast himself, is a little excessive. Obviously, the guy loved what he was doing, he wouldn't still be giving us more content in the form of journal 3 and the comic otherwise, but if trying to helm the show got to be too much for him, then that's just the way it is. Be grateful that we got as good of a show as we did. Even with its flaws, I have yet to watch a cartoon that can really compete.

So what's the solution? Introduce new wifu's, or have a split plot, one following the Stan twins in the artic, and the other following Dipper and Mabel visiting a now Soos owned Mystery Shack back in Gravity Falls?

>>102261400
Sounds good to me. So introduce new wifu's it is then. We've already got Mermando, so introducing another mermaid would be redundant. Maybe a harpy or siren, or would those be too predictable for a show like this? Ancient Atlantean wifu? Hyper aggressive coast guard who harasses the Stans for illegally docking their boat wifu? Suspicious government agent who stalks the family to keep an eye on Ford wifu?

The Stan's need to go to the Bermuda Triangle. It's literally one of the most famous supernatural hot spots in the whole damn ocean and a slight reference to the previous series main villain.

You know, even though Crampelter is the only named bully we see in AToTS, I think he might have only been a drop in the bucket. The comic story kind of gives the impression that just about everyone bullied the Stans. I guess this is might have been what Stanley meant when he said that the two of them never really had any friends outside of each other.

there's nothing wrong with being disappointed by the finale, but having such an emotional response after all these years, and even denying yourself to watch a show you used to enjoy, doesn't seem healthy.

Listen to the commentaries moron. He co-wrote 40 episodes of TV while also voicing half the cast, leading a crew, reviewing the art, personally revising the storyboards, fighting (and beating) the censors, writing books, fixing promos, hiring the staff, editing, directing the voices, etc etc.

Dunno if its relevant but I remember after NWHS aired, they love the idea of Dipper feeling so betrayed by Mabel and Stan that he decided to make another deal with Bill for whatever reason, and so produced lots of brooding Dipper fanarts. Not gonna lie, I thought it was gonna lead that way.

Yeah they were going, I think, for a "Mabel regretting freeing Ford." deal since Ford destroys their nice little dynamic established in season one and 2a. But like so much in 2b bad episode choices meant there wasn't enough room to show what Mabel is fucking feeling.

Hey, it's ok to be miffed if you feel the series ended too soon, or that season 2b was not as good as it should have been. It's okay to feel sad that something you loved is over. It's not ok to let those feelings destroy your appreciation of the whole series, and it's especially not ok to tear down other people who don't feel the same way you do. You can love Gravity Falls while acknowledging its flaws. You can appreciate Hirsch's work while still thinking he could have come up with better solutions to the series' problems. This is not an all-or-nothing proposition.

Bipper deserved more episodes. Or maybe Mabel's possessed body. Either one really, he's so fun
>>
>>102264822
I remember Alex being confronted by the dark Dipper fan theory at one point post NWHS and saying something along the lines of about how 'Dipper was more relieved than anything that Mabel didn't listen to him and trusted her gut because it ended up being the right choice' or 'Dipper feeling slightly embarrassed that he misjudged the situation and would have prevented the author he's been searching for from returning had he gotten his way'.

Same. They could still do the happy ending after he realizes he fucked up, but having the author being a morally grey final villain would be fun. Bill could just be fucking with both sides for giggles.

If there's ever a sequel series, Bipper returning would be fucking great. I mean Dipper probably didn't get a metal plate installed so that could open the door to Bill possessing Dipper, or have Bill's leftover demon energy becoming a split personality. Like Jekyll and Hyde
>>
>>102268343
I do like the original idea that Bill was just a reoccurring character who took a liking to furthering Dipper's paranoia by yelling things like '9/11 was an inside job' whenever he slept.
>>
>>102266233
I was actually expecting a confrontation between the two towards the end of Dipper and Mabel vs the Future when she's fleeing the shack. Maybe even Mable saying something hurtful to Ford about regretting not pressing the button in that emotionally high strung moment. It would have been interesting to see how Ford would react to such a volatile reaction from someone who wasn't Stanley, and maybe confront his own feelings about unintentionally hurting his niece this badly.

I never thought there was any chance Dipper (or Ford or Mabel, when those theories came out) might go evil. But I remember when someone posted an interview here where Alex said it was ridiculous to think that a character the audience liked (Dipper) might turn evil. A:tlA had Zuko and now Tangled: the Series has Varian as characters who can be antagonistic, but the audience still loves them. Yes Zuko moved from villain to hero which is different, but he also backslid in Season 2 and was forgiven. It was sort of a reminder that for the most part Dipper and Mabel had pretty simple characterizations, while the Stans were allowed to be more complicated and messy.
>>
>>102267217
Fug, this is adorable. Stan and lil Soos needed a flashback bonding episode. I want to see at what point Stan got so softhearted for the guy that he decided to get himself on the no-flight list in an attempt to make Soos feel better about his birthday. The pair have a really underappreciated dynamic.

Yeah. Some of my favorite parts of the series are where everyone is just hanging out and being comfy with each other. The opening of Deep End where everyone's complaining about the heat and scene in Into the Bunker with Dipper and Wendy chilling on her bed watching campy horror movies come to mind in particular.

How would you write Ford as the final antagonist though? Would he have some grand scheme he was enacting and be the driving force behind the finale, or would he just be reacting to big events, but do so in a way that was deemed extreme and unnecessary by the rest of the cast? Like would he be 'I'm going to break the world under the weight of my flawed ideals' evil or 'I'm willing to sacrifice innocents for a greater moral good' evil?

I never hated or loved the show. I always thought it was somewhat uneven. At its worst it was below average, at best it was pretty good. It obviously could have used a third season. It wouldn't have even needed to be a full 20 episode season. A truncated 10 episode season would have been enough.

But I still thought "2b" was acceptable, if noticeably flawed.

Highly doubt she's meant to be but it is kind of fun to headcanon that Anti-Mabel is Reverse Mabel in disguise as a normal Mabel (Gideon's outfit would be a too-obvious tip-off that she's evil, though Reverse Mabel usually seems too smart to wear an "I Hate Cats" shirt, but maybe she was absent-minded thinking no one would see her undershirt that morning).

I like the crazy batshit theory that Bill's people weren't actually geometric shapes but 2d reptiles. Bill's origins could tie into the reptilians that way.

Actually women (which are single straight lines) are lowest class and aren’t allowed to leave their houses because they could potentially impale and kill other shapes. The houses even have to be specially designed so that they can’t impale their triangle or square husbands within them.

Ford couldn't trust Bill, but I think Bill also couldn't trust Ford. He'd have killed him partly because Ford would be likely to turn on him at any time and could be a real threat. I think one reason Ford wasn't really tempted was because he knew better than to ever trust Bill again, too. He probably guessed Bill would just off him.

Bill actually never made a Bill deal with Mabel, but just tricked her. It never really made sense why he put her in a bubble, but was probably just because the writers felt like using their leftover ideas from Dreamscapers for Mabel's Mindscape and had no other place to stick them.

The password thing is up in the air, I think smashing the laptop feels like a big stretch and I thought Alex said when asked that Bill basically just didn't follow through and technically still owes Dipper a favor. I thought that might come up at a crucial moment, but I guess really Bill just fucked off and doesn't have to follow through on any of his deals and only ever bothers to if he happens to feel like it.

there's a lot of awesome potential for sea traveling spinoffs. Pacifica could bump into the twins when her family is on a cruiseship line they own, so she jumps ship to join the Pines on their adventure.
Also Cthulhu getting pissed because people keep mispronouncing his name (Colhoo? Coolio? Oh, praise great Coolio!) would be a funny gag

Gravity Falls was great about not making the twins a straight one-to-one parallel matching, which would have been boring and stifled character interactions with the "less similar" members of the twins. For instance, while Ford is nerdy like Dipper, he's also artsy and wears sweaters like Mabel, and Dipper has the whole manliness thing like Stan.
>>
>>102276291

Stan was apparently artsy too, until he got the love knocked out of him by life. Hell Dipper is apparently a great artist as well, going by Journal 3. Must run in the family.

I want more stan suffering in the sequel. He could be possessed by Bill, or maybe his memories are starting to fade and he's going senile. Or maybe he gets horrible nightmares of his brother betraying him and dumping his body in the water.

There was an animation error in the episode Deep End where one of the bottles that Mermando sent to Mabel was spelled backward. Since we didn't know who the lama was at the time, and since Mabel had a lama sweater people thought this was a hint that she had a secret mirror twin and that this mirror twin was supposed to represent the lama on the wheel.

Good writer. Why follow the rules established previously when you can break them for shock value even though it makes no sense whatsoever?

Tolkien should've just physically transformed Gollum into Sauron when he wore the ring.

In Deathly Hallows one of the horcruxes should've been completely indestructible for no reason.
>>
>>102268276
That's bullshit. He said in an online interview that Dipper would get angry that Mabel didn't trust him and that it would affect their relationship. Obviously that didn't pan out but this seems like Texas sharpshooting on Alex's part.

Even though I found some of the handwaving frustrating (why could Bill go into Stan's mind with no deal but then couldn't go into Ford's mind once he "reset" it) I think you're overthinking things. The show was just The Simpsons: But Spooky and For Kids, it didn't need to be consistent like something serious like Tolkien because it was a goofball comedy show.

I like the idea of a Ford who's seen too much Lovecraftian horror in the multiverse and snapped as a result; and in his addled state he comes to believe that "weirdness" (in this case meaning horrible life changing mutation) is the way to uplift humanity and release them from earthly concerns, thereby bringing about Weirdmageddon deliberately. He may or may not be working with Bill towards this end. It would end with Stan entering his brother's mindscape and meeting the hopeful young scientist Ford once was, trapped beneath the insanity, who begs Stan to kill him before he can do any more damage
>>
>>102274158
The pedophilia accusation is funny since 90% of GF shippers age the characters up before doing anything with them. The only exception is DipFord shippers who usually do keep Dipper as a shota, but that's only because they're mostly RickMorty shippers applying their fetish to a different fandom.

>>102278895
Yeah I've seen more loli type shit from GF posted here on /co/ that's just lone character loli from actual loli artists. Tumblr will be screaming about pedo this and pedo that and it's like, a brunette and blonde guy in their late 20s/early 30s who don't even look like Dipper and Bill fully clothed and standing next to each other. Or worse it's got elderly Stan or Ford in it but it's somehow pedo? I guess because it's from a kids' show. Partly because of the GF fandom when people talk about child porn I now assume they are talking about cartoon adults or even cartoon senior citizens who are fully clothed just standing there blinking at the camera.

I keep thinking about the theory that Bill was reincarnated as Stan in the past. I can't think of any reason not to treat is as true.

I admit that I think retroactive reincarnation seems a bit out there for a children's cartoon show and also that it would be kind of shitty to make Stan just Bill redeeming himself instead of Stan, an imperfect man, as his own character sacrificing himself for his family. But sure it could always be true. I always assumed Alex just threw the backwards message in there so the crazed Bill fans would have that thread to pull on and he otherwise would have killed Bill outright. As far as the show is concerned the only real link is they're two con men, but if they ever went there I could see Bill still being trapped in Stan's mind.

Why do tumblrinas get so butthurt about tame shit like incest and puppy love when they think trannies are hot shit?
>>
>>102281810
Because most of them are teenagers or developmentally stunted young adult women so they follow groupthink. If the tumblr social justice majority says something is bad then it must be bad. There are two groups on the website, those dumb enough to blindly follow the groupthink and those who don’t believe in it but keep their neck down to protect themselves.

The social climate there is pure leftist driven McCarthyism. Once someone is deemed “problematic” in their eyes, they are fair game for anything. It starts off as insults and jokes but turns into death threats, doxxing, trying to give them a cookie with a needle in it. If someone tries to defend the person then the group will throw them under the bus as well. They’ll dig up something about the person, it could be so minor or something they did as a teenager, and now they have an excuse to torment them as well. Either you blindly agree with them or they’ll make your life hell.

I mean I can tell you why I think it's cool, even though I'm not crazy into it.
- good aesthetic (love that turquoise)
- morally grey/dark protagonists
- the AU itself can be taken many different ways, it's not set in stone
- features birthmark, which the series never meant to
- can have them contrast the town or change the entire tone of the town
- extra opportunities for dark magic which are all in Journal 2
- more Gideon and Pacifica
- very different use of Bill

In short it's very good for art, which is a primary thing in eastern fandoms compared to western fandoms where it's 50/50 art/fic.
>>
>>102282327
Maybe an anti-Bill defense force? Maybe a group working for the other shapes of flat land that Bill pissed off?

But if I had to speculate, in my gut I think Bill would have incinerated Ford on the spot the moment he got the formula to shut down the barrier. I don’t see Bill as a romantic, sweet, or charitable character. He’s a psychopath who takes what he can get. He sees people as toys and when he gets bored of playing with them tosses them aside. I think at that point he was done playing.

Makes sense. There’s a decided inclination to read Bill as being sincerely impressed with Ford on some level because that’s the trope (i.e. Q in Star Trek), but it’s not quite in keeping with how things shook out, is it?

>That’s not how I imagine Bill. I see him as a serial manipulator. While he’s “seducing” you with flattery his brain is somewhere else imagining playing ping-pong with a severed head. But people are free to imagine any headcanon they like! I’m genuinely excited by other people’s interpretation of the characters–but I never forget my own.
>>
>>102289338

As for the offer to "join" him before Bill knew about the barrier: I assume that was just a taunt to piss Ford off with and he would have turned him into a statue even if he'd said "yes." I think he was just mocking Ford for being a "freak" again and wasn't making a genuine offer or anything.

I still don't understand why /co/ has such a gigantic stick up their ass for Alex Hirsch and Gravity Falls. Putting Mabel aside (cause yes, her role in the ending could've been done better), how did this show not end well? I was satisfied nearly the entire way through and just happy we got a show that did its thing and ended when it needed to.

Holy shit anon, you are the BEST. Commentary tracks are my jam but they're so hard to find online.
>>
>>102289590
I didn't care for the last quarter of the show. It didn't live up to expectations. Bill was a disappointing villain, Ford was a plot device rather than a fleshed out character, a bunch of characters who could have used more focus were ignored, etc. It just didn't deliver.
>>
>>102289671
Ford is pretty fleshed out in the Journal, shame it couldn't be shown in the show but there just wasn't time.
>>
>>102289681
I can understand why Hirsch was burnt out but at the same time, the show really could have used a 3rd season or at least a movie. We were promised one of those two things so of course people were disappointed when it turned out neither would happen.

Dippy Fresh was based on the guy who does the “SO MANY QUESTIONS!” and “DANCE BREAK!” voice for commercial break on Disney XD.

>>102289671
Whatever shortcomings this show may have had, it was still way better than Steven Universe or Star vs the Forces of Evil. Those shows turned into trainwrecks. Gravity Falls may have gotten rushed, but it never felt boring or meandering, or like they were just making shit up as they went along.

>>102289590
The writing and quality of 2B was shit and I was already saying this before it became the "hivemind viewpoint" meme. Same for thinking Ashi was shit from the beginning and having to deal with the "fuck off virgin" posts until they all realized it was retarded at the end and now the general census (here) is that she was shit too.
>>
>>102289871
That came much later though than the production of Weirdma Part 2 would've happened.
>>
>>102289590
My theory is that Not What He Seems, with all its careful buildup and top-notch production values, set the bar impossibly high for the rest of the show. The fandom went absolutely bugnuts after NWHS aired. People wanted the finale to pack the same punch and it didn't. There was no way it could.

I distinctly remember that /co/ started really going after Alex right after A Tale of Two Stans. That episode specifically was a letdown to a lot of people here. NWHS just set the bar too high?

At the time though there was the Manzi shit and of course, the Trump shit. Some /pol/tards don't even watch the show but hate him because of his Twitter posts that criticize Trump. You really can't overestimate the prevalence of those people anywhere on 4chan.

Why was AToTS a letdown? I thought that episode was great, easily in my top ten just for Stan's horrible infomercial products alone. Not to mention that the art was great, as well as the drama between him and Stanford. Were people just that upset that their headcanons were wrong?
>>
>>102290854
There are a lot of moments I really like from a Tale of Two Stan’s but there is no excusing that the whole thing was a big exposition dump. They should have integrated there backstory over the course of episodes rather than just all at once.
>>
>>102290750
Summerween was before I fucking hated Mabel and I thought it was comfy as shit. Actually Season 1 entirely just had that aesthetic but it really hit me with Summerween. God I might rewatch it now, haven't seen a GF episode in awhile.

Inconveniencing was pretty good too. The other two are also fine but the writing in Soos and The Real Girl just felt off to me. It wasn't bad though. Giffany's lack of porn is weird considering everything.

Billdip for obvious reasons, Mabill for the same reasons, and Candip because they had no chemistry together and were just shipped because at the time she was the only girl not related to Dipper who wasn’t a bitch.

In some parts of the show, Dipper was called "the brains". How so, because I only saw him being an average boy who was just interested in the mystery?
>>
>>102291136
Wendip. Completely boring and ate up a lot of the show's time with that annoying plot tumor. All other ships can be ignored since it's mostly fans making stuff with maybe a few hints or subtext, but you can't really just ignore Wendip, its shittiness is in the show.
>>
>>102291136
Padippica, I'm alright with the idea of the ship itself but the fans were the most grating clamouring for it to be canon. Everything else I'm pretty neutral on.

He was paired up with Mabel, he might as well have been called a genius.
>>
>>102292015
They're written to be the same intelligence, it's just Mabel doesn't have the patience. Like a very clever person with ADD. I think by him being "the brains" it's just in contrast to her who's clearly physically stronger.
>>
>>102292191
I forgot they fucked around with gender roles and made Mabel stronk and Dipper weak as fuck beta shit, he really deserved to man the fuck up and do physical damage in the end. I was tricked, I thought that was the direction they were going in with Gideon Rises when he jumped off that fucking cliff, into Gideon's robot, and beat the everloving shit out of Gideon himself. Nah, lets have more beta limp dicked dipper instead.
>>
>>102292218
Gender only starts to become a factor during puberty, I had no problems pushing boys around at that age with just average strength. Mabel is constantly running like a maniac while Dipper is a reader so it's not some weird statement.

My main problem with the "Dipper crushing on Wendy" schtick was that it never actually affected either of their character arcs. It would be one thing if Dipper realized how silly the whole thing was and grew as a result, but he doesn't. The show made a weak gesture toward that kind of development, but went right back to square one in the finale. Wendy doesn't even have a character arc to speak of, she was always just the cool older girl. A huge missed opportunity.
>>
>>102292307

>>102292325
I wish instead of having Wendy give him a relatively well written let down speech that he maturely understood that it was silly.

Then again these are the same writers who thought a 6 year old Wendy crushing on a 12 year old Dipper was the same thing and worth calling him a creep over.
>>
>>102292015
The kid looked like he was doing some pretty complicated calculations in Time Traveler's Pig. Plus, deciphering Ford's ciphers and cryptograms would be pretty complicated for your average 12 year old who's receiving no outside help.

>So is there an explanation other than "they look cool" for why the japanese fandom loves Reverse Pines so much?

For Japan specifically, I think most of it is probably "they look cool." Two creepy twins in suits, with the turquoise color scheme and glowing blue magic, they kind of look like characters from an anime and there's a really strong visual theme. Some of the Japanese artists probably haven't even seen the show but liked the AU fanart. The characters fit tropes they like, so Dipper is the cool evil calculating type you see in anime and Pacifica is now a blushing, box lunch making moe girl. But Japan in particular seems to have a boner for Mabel, Bill, and Mabel/Bill, so Mabel gets a lot of emphasis in that AU, which they like, making her a sexy evil magical girl. The sad blue Bill is also the kind of lovable sad Eyore character that Japan likes, being full of depressed people, or they make him that character from Black Butler with the weird Japanese magical butler/maid fetish. And then they can do dominatrix fetish stuff with the Mabel and the Bill. It also usually involves incest or at least incest vibes with Mabel and Dipper so that's probably another plus for Japan. It just has everything that Japan likes.
>>
>>102292402
I wish they had just let him move on. Even Roadside Attraction's cold opening had a promising hook about how he wanted to because it hurt thinking about Wendy. That's a relatable problem.

If only the rest of the episode hadn't been such a garbage fire.

Wendy really needs a flaw, and being uncomfortable and unable to handle Dipper's feelings could have been that. She was really a dull character.

>>
>>102292953
I actually kind of wanted the character flaws that were touched upon in Society of the Blindeye to go somewhere. She mentioned there that as much as she tries to play it cool, she's actually stressed out all the time. Maybe have an episode focusing on that, show her being worried about what she wants to do out of high school. Maybe she feels directionless, or put under too much pressure to do lumber jacking like her father and bucking under the strain of it, or maybe give her some hidden grief concerning the death of her mom.
>>
>>102293221
As far as the family stress goes, I've said a few times that they could've made her line in Weirdmageddon about having apocalypse training instead of Christmas into a running gag about the crazy shit Manly Dan puts his kids through to toughen them up. Would've given that admission a bit more weight.

It would have improved the show and Wendy a lot to have her doing other things outside of just being lusted after by Dipper and having her interact with other characters.

Because his character is fleshed out enough that there's literally something for everyone to play off from. He's eccentric and wild in all the right ways, charmingly grumpy and comically unlucky, with just enough insecurities and softheartedness to ground him.

Even his interactions with villains Gideon and Bill are top notch.

No problem. I took the comments at the end to say that I think Alex doesn't mind if people ship Billford or Bill with whoever else, as long as they don't harass him about it. With what's happening with some other shows, you can see why. I remember people here saying he hated shipping, but I think he mostly just didn't want to hear about it at all, he never said people should delete their Pinecest and in fact said people should make what they want, but he didn't want psychos bitching to him over twitter about their ships not being canon because nobody wants that crap. Can you blame him?

I'm not sure, you'd need an episode-specific spin rather than just generic daily thoughts, since I'm sure twins wouldn't be too perturbed by each others' ideas. Unless they're in the middle of puberty and have inappropriate thoughts about themselves or others, but they would never do a comic about that.
>>
>>102298375
The only way I can think of that working is the conflict is some central event or object that they all have serious morally different opinions on.
They know each other's viewpoints/lives enough that random thoughts and day-to-day things wouldn't be anything more than a bit annoying, so what would be something new and big that none of them agree on? That way you could merge the A and B stories for each pair easily because they pair off (Dipper and Stan have the same ideas etc).

Rewatching the series, and I've got to give Stan credit for not shitting bricks the moment Dipper hands him journal 3. The guy has been waiting 30 years to get his hands on the second and third journals and ends up getting both of them within hours of each other. That and the cheating he pulls off at the end of DDaMD really highlight what an excellent liar he is.

GF left a sour taste in my mouth after the show ended and I just roll my eyes to anything related to it for years. Then the comics happened, I was able to reflect back on why I love it in the first place (mystery, the theories, family bonding) and I also love Mabel again. I hope Alex will make more comics so my love for it doesn't fade.

Any ideas for new villains besides reptilians and ayylmaos?

>>102305405
> had an idea for a demon locked in the bottomless pit
Sounds good. Does Journal 3 give us any additional information on the bottomless pit? Might be able to draw some more information from there.

Whatever government agency Powers and Trigger work for could be good antagonists. Natives of flatland obsessed with making everything orderly. An anti-Ford who's doing dangerous experiments with the supernatural but doesn't care about the consequences of his actions, or an anti-Stan who wants to exploit supernatural creatures and use them for money despite not understanding how dangerous some of them are. Maybe some kind of power-hungry sorcerer who needs to sacrifice a pair of twins to unlock their true potential. Time Giants who are pissed that Time Baby is dead and want to destroy the entire universe in an enormous temper tantrum.

I don't know. It's hard to think of something that could top Bill without going to big with the destructive scale. At this point for Gravity Falls, I think it would be better to go darker rather than bigger.
>>
>>102305720
I think the time giants are all dead. although a few survivors could be good cosmic enemies, maybe not the main threat.
Maybe the star wormwood could appear and tie into Gideon's symbol.
>>
>>102305720
Also I like the idea that the "flatlanders" were the original reptilians. I posted a pic by MC Escher above of 2d reptiles emerging from paper. The ones that control the world government are survivors of Bill's apocalypse and became 3d beings.
