Rule Number 1 chucked right out that window.
i hope i don’t get too upset tonight so i can start working on the rompus update after i submit my essay pray for me
I’m tired of those “How to Deal With a Borderline” articles. Here’s a real guide.
so stan totally had a secret twin brother right. im not the first one to say this but,
rounder, thinner rimmed glasses.
when he found them in the hidden room he tucked them away before anyone could see
then was just looking at them later
and who is that kid reading in the back, with similar hair
im actually betting that his twin’s name was stanley. in dreamscapers when bill was remembering “stan pines” he was actually remembering stanley, which is why he didn’t say “stanford”. speaking of bill, if you look on his wheel you see both the symbol on stan’s hat and the glasses, meaning they’re 2 separate people.
perhaps stanford and stanley were searching for the secrets of gravity falls together, that’s why grunkle stan was so adamant about lying to the kids about the stuff going on to keep them safe, he knows how dangerous it is because he lost his brother to it?
the “stanley mobile”. did stanford take stanley’s car after something happened to him?
and since stan and the kids share the same last name, stan must have had a brother, and that brother must have had a son, and that son is dipper and mabels dad. so “stanley” would be their grandfather. that would have made whatever happened to him hurt more for stanford, he already had a family by the time he disappeared.
I like to buy into the theory that Bill had something to do with the disappearance of Stanley. Especially after this line.
He sounds like he has a little experience dealing with siblings before Dipper and Mabel.
Stanford, what did you do?
OH GOD YOU’RE RIGHT
THATS WHY GRUNKLE STAN NEVER TALKS ABOUT HIM
IT’S HIS FAULT HE’S GONE, SOMETHING HAPPENED AND STANFORD DIDN’T SACRIFICE HIS WORK FOR HIS TWIN
Not to mention twins tend to skip a generation. If Dipper and Mabel are twins then it’s likely their father wasn’t, but HIS father? Their grandfather? Stan’s brother? Very likely.
there’s a clear and easily defined difference between emotional manipulation and needing attention and validation bc of a personality disorder. idk why neurotypical people have such a hard time grasping that???
literally nothing about needing affection is inherently manipulative, and it is vital to our safety. don’t u dare pretend it’s something we can control, or an excuse we use to manipulate all the people around us.
if u can’t handle me at my needy and over emotional and irrational u don’t deserve me at my pretending to hold it together
