Inbetween 1 and 0

zoey-chu:

ok ok I have to get this out while my arm is ok enough to type bc for the past few days I’ve had a Gravity Falls AU sort of idea. a lot of details are really hazy but

Imagine in a canon-divergent AU, a huge, grand sort of finale where the Pines prevent an Armageddon-scale disaster. but some shit still goes wrong, and while they may have prevented the worst from happening, a huge event essentially unleashes a wave of supernatural phenomena. the shit that happens in Gravity Falls basically starts happening all around the world, ranging from harmless but weird, to threats so dangerous that national militaries have to get involved. things like bermuda triangle-esque areas appearing out of nowhere, to loch-ness monsters residing in lakes, ghosts suddenly popping up, all sorts of weird shit

And during the Pines’ “final battle” before all this happens, Bill pretty much dies (whether as a friend or foe). Dipper is also in pretty bad shape, vulnerable enough for Bill to attempt a last-ditch possession in order to save himself. But it doesn’t work… not quite.

A part of Bill ends up fusing with Dipper, but his mind isn’t overtaken. It seems like Dipper lucked out and retains mind, but his body isn’t so lucky. He becomes a spirit much like Bill was, only able to reside in mindscape/underworld/whatever you want to call it.

The result is bittersweet. Dipper can no longer return to the life he once had, but at least he isn’t “dead”. He can’t interact with the mortal world like before, but he has a greater affinity for the physical realm than Bill did, granting him two abilities: to be able to retain a physical form for some periods of time (sometimes due to his current power level, other times due to supernatural changes in the environment) - and be able to interact with Mabel at any given time. Since they have that natural affinity as twins, Mabel is the only one who can touch, see, and hear him while others can’t.

Another curious side-effect is tiny bits of Bill’s personality and habits are picked up by Dipper. As a whole he is unchanged and retains his humanity, but he does grow a bit more mischievous and is prone to rare episodes of being power-hungry and less sympathetic under certain conditions. His sense of style is more like Bill’s as well, preferring a little floating tophat and more dapper clothing.

Dipper’s predicament is sort of a blessing in the end. He and Mabel are able to travel once they’re old enough, and work together to help make the world a little less chaotic. They’re never sure if their endeavors mean anything (because when one mystery is solved and eradicated, another pops up), but at least they’re helping people in need.

Much like Bill, Dipper is essentially a sort of demi-god, close to omnipotent when it comes to the supernatural. His power is slowly realized over time, becoming more and more competent and confident as the years go on. By their late teens, Dipper is a bit more cocky and capable, a little more disconnected and socially inept, but still a sweet kid.

Dipper has a constant fear that one day he will lose his humanity… but at least he hasn’t yet.

Okay, So after reading this and letting it sit in a tiny bit, I thought about Mabel’s end of the story. Her brother, though he can be there always, isn’t really there anymore. Not like before. And I can kinda see her being a little broken up about it at times.

Not like all the time. And at first, I can see her being all cheerful that he is okay and thinking how cool it is. But like, once it sinks in that Dipper isn’t ‘alive’ like he used to be or like when she would start noticing Bill’s leftovers. Like it would hurt sometimes for her.

Then I picture one day, Dipper notices it, like her smile is forced or something feels off and he tries to cheer her up. But to cheer her up, he uses a little bit of his new powers that he’s grown used to, like maybe creates something silly for her that he thinks she would enjoy. Then to Dipper’s confusion, Mabel would start to cry. Not realizing what caused the tears, he would try to do more to comfort her in a more traditional sense. At his Dippering, she would smile and be all “Silly, I didn’t start crying cause I was sad, it was cause I’m happy.” And she would do the little boop thing to him.

After all, he was still, and will always be Dipper. She then would tickle him or something cute like that.

Yes, goddamnit(Reminder that light eyes and blonde hair can be caused by conditions, such as Waardenburg Syndrome and albinism, but they are still real people that can (and should) be represented in media and such)And also I can add that I have news for y’all, people can be black and naturally blondeAnd literally people from ANY KIND can be a redheadand have freackles and suchSo please, stop pretending only white people can have those characteristics, jfc, it’s sofucking annoying.

Just to add on - While race is a very, very, very significant issue, race as we know it is a social construct. When you acknowledge that all people on earth have veeeery little genetic variation in the scope of things, it’s much easier to break oneself from the training of “only white people have this, only black people have that, only asian people have this trait, etc”

lonelyy-depressed-girl:

if I offered you $20, would you take it?

How about if I crumpled it up?

Stepped on it?

you would probably take it even though it was crumpled and stepped on it. Do you know why?

Because it is still $20, and its worth has not changed.

The same goes for you; if you have a bad day, or if something bad happens to you, you are not worthless.

if someone crumples you up or steps on you, your worth does not change. You are still just as valuable as you were before.

NO BUT THIS IS WHY I LOVE LAIKA THO,

there was this big uproar over a character from paranormal being gay, so what do they do? next movie, they make a commercial that THROWS THE GAY IN YOUR FACE. They’re literally not being subtle at all about their queer representation and I fucking love them for it

Throw the gay in your face is perhaps the best thing I’ve heard all week.

HEY, CANADIAN TUMBLR

YOU ALL NEED TO FUCKING SIGN THIS.

HELL, THOSE OF YOU YOU AREN’T CANADIAN, FUCKING DO IT ANYWAY.

FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT INFORMED, HARPER LITERALLY JUST SOLD CANADA TO CHINA. 

THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO OVERTURN FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL LAWS THAT WOULD STOP THEM FROM DOING SHIT LIKE FRACKING, EVEN IF IT’S ON NATIVE LAND.

SERIOUSLY YOU NEED TO SIGN THIS.

The NDP issued a statement saying “the agreement will give China’s state-controlled companies the same protection under the law as private Canadian companies.

"In effect, it will give China access to, and control over, some of Canada’s natural resources for the next 31 years."

NDP trade critic Don Davies put forward a motion in the House of Commons in April 22, 2013, calling on the government not to ratify the agreement. The motion was defeated.

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May in a statement on Wednesday said the FIPA with China was a “sell out.”

Deputy Green Party Leader Bruce Hyer added cabinet is, “signing of this deal behind closed doors, instead of giving Parliament a say, is not just undemocratic in itself … it is also a profound attack of Canada’s sovereignty as a nation, and an erosion of the rights of all Canadians to make democratic decisions about our economy, environment, and energy.”

Okay, this only has 440 notes, whereas it should be having fucking street demonstrations. Sign it.

Hiromu Arakawa (荒川 弘 Arakawa Hiromu?, born May 8, 1973) is a Japanese manga artist from Hokkaidō. She is best known for the manga Fullmetal Alchemist, which became a hit both domestically and internationally, and was later adapted into two anime television series.

She often portrays herself as a bespectacled cow. Her given name is Hiromi (弘美?), the first character being written identically to her male pen name, Hiromu.

Arakawa states that Suihō Tagawa, the author of Norakuro, is the "root of [her] style as an artist". She also learned composition and drawing during her time as Hiroyuki Etō’s assistant. She also cites Rumiko TakahashiShigeru Mizuki andKinnikuman by Yudetamago as influences and is a fan of Mike Mignola's work.

 Arakawa was born and raised on a dairy farm with three elder sisters and a younger brother. Arakawa thought about being a manga artist ”since [she] was little” and during her school years, she would often draw on textbooks. After graduating high school, she took oil painting classes once a month for seven years while working on her family’s farm. During this time, she also created dōjinshi manga with her friends and drew yonkoma for a magazine.

Arakawa moved to Tokyo in the summer of 1999, and started her career in the manga industry as an assistant to Hiroyuki Etō, author of Mahōjin Guru Guru. Her own career began with the publication of Stray Dog in Square Enix's Monthly Shōnen Gangan in 1999. Stray Dog won the ninth 21st Century “Shōnen Gangan” Award. She published one chapter of Shanghai Yōmakikai in Monthly Shōnen Gangan in 2000. In July 2001, Arakawa published the first chapter of Fullmetal Alchemist in Monthly Shōnen Gangan. The series spanned 108 chapters, with the last one published in July 2010, and the series was collected in twenty-seven volumes.  When the studio Bones adapted it into an anime series, Arakawa aided them in developing it. However, she later let them work alone in the making of the script so that both manga and anime would have different endings, and to develop the manga further. The series won the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award in the shōnen category in 2004. When the second anime adaptation was reaching its ending, Arakawa showed director Yasuhiro Irie her plans for the manga’s ending, making both end in near dates.

She is currently living in Tokyo and has published three more works, Raiden 18Sōten no Kōmori, and Hero Tales. Arakawa has collaborated with the creation of Hero Tales with Studio Flag under the name of Huang Jin Zhou. In the anime adaptation of the series, Arakawa was responsible for the character designs. She has also drawn the cover from the Japanese edition of the novel The Demon’s Lexicon authored by Sarah Rees Brennan.

In April 2011, Arakawa began a new series called Silver Spoon, serialized in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shōnen Sunday. Rather than writing another fantasy series like Fullmetal Alchemist, Arakawa wanted to challenge herself by trying a more realistic story with Silver Spoon. It quickly rose among Shogakukan’s best-selling titles and an anime series by A-1 Pictures began airing in July 2013. She began writing a manga adaptation of Yoshiki Tanaka's The Heroic Legend of Arslanseries of novels in July 2013, serialized in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine.
