Have you ever paid really close attention to the twins when they were in immediate danger or in a situation where they were getting nervous or a little freaked out?
Because if you look closely, you see this happening a lot:

Whenever they get freaked out it’s like their natural reaction to hold onto each other.

And 

It’s

So

Freakin

Cute!

And it’s not just that. Oh no, the twins get even more adorable, because have you seen the way Dipper looks after his sister?
Even from episode one, he always taken the time to look back and grab Mabel by the hand just to make sure she’s with him.

It happens throughout the whole season.

And if you notice it’s always Dipper leading, pulling his sister out of danger.

Mabel has saved him before too, of course. I’m not saying that she hasn’t. But what I am saying is that Dipper actively looks after her on an almost moment-to-moment basis. It’s like, Dipper sees danger and his first reaction is to grab Mabel.
 
But this makes sense! They are twins, so no one is really the “older sibling,” to a significant amount. This isn’t the standard “I must protect my younger sibling”. If anything, Mabel is older than Dipper. However, if you know anything about Dipper you have at least a general idea of how his mind works. He’s much more cautious than Mabel. He likes to think things through, and put pieces together. He pays attention to people and the world around him, unlike his sister who often lives in her own world.
It makes sense that he would take it upon himself to keep the two of them safe on their adventures. After all, he likes to think of himself as a hero, and when it comes to protecting his sister, he often is.

Don’t fully believe me yet?
When danger approaches, who stands in from of whom?
Every

Single

Time

I’m not saying Mabel isn’t a hero, or is weak, or needs her brothers help. I’m saying Dipper is a kid who takes protecting his sister very seriously.
He cares about her and loves her.

They need each other. Both to balance each other’s polarized views of the world, and for comfort and security.
And this is never more obvious than in the devastating looks on their faces, and the way they try desperately to cling to each other’s hands, as they are torn apart.

Wendy, what are you doing? We got to come up with a plan. Possibly involving ladders. There’s not any at the Shack though. Just a bunch of guns for some reason. Maybe we can….oh wait, that works too! I guess.

ENJOY THIS FOOTAGE FROM THE GRAVITY FALLS LIVE PANEL AND SPECIAL THANKS TO THE KIND ANONYMOUS USER WHO SENT IT TO ME TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU! 47 DAYS REMAIN!

Anonymous asked:

what is dippers real name

It could be Stanley because there is a theory out there that says that Stan is a family name.

Anonymous asked:

what is stan's real identity

If you mean to ask if I think/know that Stan is not his real name then no I do think that (and there is substantial evidence that shows that his name is and has always been Stan).

If you mean to ask “What does Stan know” or “how deep is he involved in the grand mystery that is Gravity Falls” then all I can truly give you is an educated guess. Check my next post for more answers.

The new short

Okay, first off I am sorry I have not been posting stuff on this blog. I have been working on FacFics and Fan art, so things just got away from me. Now with that out of the way, there is a GF short and it gives us ,the loyal fanbase, a short peek into the second season. Unfortunately this short is was only released in Russia and has yet to make it’s way to the the states, also, the only one that the U.S online community has yet to find is the second in what appears to be a series of shorts (the first thought to be a look at Mabel’s scrap book). However even though we do not have much to go we can still pull some information form the one video we have.

1- There will be vampires in season 2: Now before one side of Tumblr shrikes with excitement at the thought of sexy vampires and the other half gets ready to commit suicide at the same thought, let me stop you both. For once in the recent pop culture time line (starting in the 90s up to now) vampires will be , not glowing, shinny, big haired wimps, but cool butt kicking monsters that look like something straight out of my nightmare after                                                          I eat 10 pounds of sugar. I mean LOOK AT THAT THING! 

2- Li’l Gideon comes back: Yeah, I know  you can see that for your self but he comes back in the only way that a psychotic little mutant can. By using a monster Vampire to brake out of the Gravity Falls prison and freaking Mabel out though the T.V screen. 

3-Stan twin theory proved correct: In the beginning of the short Grunkel Stan is shooting commercial for the shack and towards the end he does a badly put together special effect that mirrors his image side by side

(sorry for the text it’s the only cap I could find short notice) this could be a hit the to existence of Stanford’s twin Brother, Stanley.

4-The handyman knows: In the middle of the short Soos get his own moment in the sun with “Soos says some words” in which he asks “if you eat the prize from inside a cereal box, will turn into a box of cereal” than turns  back to doing his thing. I’m sure that there is a hidden code in that sentence but it is 2:08 where I am and I’m brain dead.

?-PINECEST WILL BECOME CANNON: Just testing if you where paying attention. 

Well that’s all for this post, soooo bye, oh and look out for the hid behind.  

    

Stupid people

When Stan said that all the people in Gravity Falls where “literately the dumbest people in the world” it was not just an insult. Almost all the residents of Gravity Falls are in a sense, blinded to the supernatural happenings that swirl around them everyday, this could explain why Soos sometimes is extremely stupid and others exhibits an almost stunning amount of knowledge and resourcefulness. He is part of the time locked away from the information and part of the time has access, this is because he had more of an understanding of the mystery then most other residents thus can use his much stronger will power to access the info. Stanley going missing could have something to with this. In order  to keep people from fallowing him through the gate seen at the end of season 1 Stanley wiped the mind of almost everyone, save for his twin, Stan. Stan was protected form the spell by ether his tattoo, or Stanley deliberately making it so he could remember. Stan (in the case of Stanley not knowing that he still had his memory) could be trying to bring Stanley back against his will for some unknown reason or (in the case of Stanley knowing that Stan still had memory) he ,Stan, could be pulling Stanley out because it is the designated time. The number 618 keeps appearing throughout the series this could stand for the date that Stan is to pull Stanley out of the other dimension or it could stand for the Stanley went into the said dimension.
