i was in my Grunkle Stan cosplay on Saturday, someone came up to me and started talking about how much she liked my Doctor cosplay (another person confusing Western and Bow ties!) and we talked about the show until I was like “well, I’m actually Grunkle Stan from Gravity Falls, it’s the best show.. like ever.”
She felt embarrassed for a second and I was like “I like your Sailor Moon bit, I don’t know it too well, but I recognize your head symbol” and everything was cool.
So it got me thinking.
About Gravity Falls meets Doctor Who.
And by meets, I mean in the Almaglam Comics of the 1990s with Darkclaw and such superhero teams that I can’t remember but I want to say The Teen-Men and Justice Avengers America.
So obviously Grunkle Stan is a motherfucking Time Lord, but called The Grunkle. He has no sonic screwdriver or psychic paper, just a lot of shitty fake tourist trap props. Dipper is already basically young Rory.. and I’m gonna say that Wendy is Amy Pond.. because I DO WHAT I WANT. Mabel is there as Mabel still, because she is special and has W4DDL35 the ROBOT-PIG, who is now a shitty prop robot, because of reasons.
The Mystery Shack travels around time and space looking for
suckers adventure, every episode ends with the respective town chasing the Pines away because they are basically forces of destruction and stealing shit.
