Gravity Falls Challenge Day 18 – Most Memorable Quote

Posted in 20 Days Gravity Falls Challenge, Uncategorized with tags on June 23, 2015 by Sara Hammerzmith

Interestingly enough, the first thing that popped up in my head was quotes by Phineas, quotes as “The only thing impossible is impossibility itself” and “You have to believe you can, Candace”, as those two quotes have basically shaped my life the past couple of years. Phineas & Ferb is so important, it’s so sad it’s coming to an end.

But, this was about Gravity Falls, not Phineas and Ferb, and while thinking in these trails, my mind goes back to Manliness vs Dipper, and something Grunkle Stan said when they were eating at Lazy Susan’s after he comes back from “breaking up” with the manotaurs.

You were your own man and you stood up for yourself (…)Well, you did what was right even when no one agreed with ya. Sounds pretty manly to me but, what do I know?”. – Grunkle Stan

To put some context – Dipper has been very self-councious about not being “manly” enough for Wendy, or all in all really after being teased for enjoying the icelandic pop sensations BABBA, and thus tries everything – work out, eating beef jerky, you name it, in order to become “manly”, where he runs into the manotaurs – half man, half taur. In order to become a man and become a part of the manotaurs, he has to fulfill some quests.

The first ones are fine, it involves things like jumping over a big hole, put your arm in a hole full of bees and having fake tattoos. So far so good. However, the ultimate quest, which will make him A MAN, is to kill the multibear, which is a bear with many heads, I may add.

Dipper hesitates, but he goes up to the mountain and fights the multibear, who eventually surrenders and says “alright, you win, you can kill me, but first, let me listen to my favorite song one last time. It’s in the recorder, just press play”.

And what song is it? “Disco Girl”, by icelandic pop sensation BABA. Dipper looks surprised, and says that he also loves BABBA, where the bear tells him that all the manotaurs made fun of him for liking BABBA.

Dipper returns to the man-cave, throws his weapon down and tells the manotaurs that what makes you a man isn’t in what music you listen to, what food you eat, how strong you are and so on, and killing the multibear really won’t make him a man.

Dipper: You keep telling me that being a man means doing all these tasks, and being aggrel all the time, but I’m starting to think that stuff’s malarkey.”
Leaderaur: Kill the multi-bear or never be a man!
Dipper: Then I guess I’ll never be a man.

Of course, this has him thrown out, and enters the scene above, where Grunkle Stan tells him that he became a man by standing up for what he believes in, and what is right.

Scary-Oke

Posted in Gravity Falls, Uncategorized with tags on March 7, 2015 by Sara Hammerzmith

*** Spoiler alter ***

Today was the day for a new premiere of Gravity Falls here in Sweden, and today it was “Scary-Oke”, ironically, since this is actually the first episode of this season. Would have been good if they actually got the episodes in the right order you know…

Anyway. So, basically, what happens is that they have a re-launch of the Mystery Shack after finally imprisoning Gideon, and they start that off with a special day at the Shack and wrapping it up with a party. In the middle of the re-opening, a couple of agents shows up because of unusual paranormal activity (caused by Stan). Of course he denies, but Dipper calls them up anyway and to make a long story short, he manages to awaken the dead. After running around for a while and having Soos turned into a zombie, Stan comes to rescue and admits to the twins that he is well aware of the paranormal shit going on, and then, by singing together as a family, they managed to kill all the zombies.

Well, what can I say? THIS SEASON IS INTENSE. I LOVE this episode, especially since we finally are starting to get closer to finding out things about Gravity Falls. The revelation by Stan is a HUGE step on the  way, and seeing inside his cabinet is just amazing.

I’m a little surprised as to how, obscene the season is getting. For being a Disney series, it’s getting creepier and creepier. Zombies with eyes hanging out of the head? What a step!

I can’t wait for the next episode. Bring it on!

Gravity Falls – Day 5: Favorite AU

Posted in 20 Days Gravity Falls Challenge, Uncategorized with tags , , , on December 9, 2014 by Sara Hammerzmith

I HAVE WAITED FOR THIS ONE TO ARRIVE!

My favorite AU! Well, this one is easy as hell!

REVERSE PINES.

I’ve been a fan of this AU ever since it was invented. It’s very simple – basically, the Pines has become Gideon, the Telepathy Twins if you like. So they are the ones who are doing pretty much everything Gideon is doing, and he is doing what they were doing. Only, this one is a lot, lot, LOT darker than the original series.

And that’s what I like SO MUCH about this Au. It’s sick, it’s twisted, it’s blood, it’s gore, it’s evil it’s just WICKED. I LOVE reading Reverse Pines fanfics and I love the art even more. I wish this could be a series somehow. Ahh. I’d so watch this.
