on halloween, stan turns the mystery shack into a horror maze to get more money from tourists, and hires local kids to be the scare actors
soos immediately gets into character and makes for an excellent zombie, though wendy's vampire queen always seems a little unenthusiastic about drinking everyone's blood

Here's a double-page spread for the Bonus PDF of the "So Many Falls" GF AU Zine :)
Reference to Where's Waldo - another kid's picture book but this time about finding a striped dude in crowded scenes. It's been a year since drawing this, but I can still remember those long nights a-staring. Pretty therapeutic actually.
See if you can identify all the aus!

Happy FIFTH ANNIVERSARY, Gravity Falls Finale!
Hard to believe, isn’t it? To mark the occasion this year, I decided to do a version of a sketch by Alonso Ramirez Ramos, one of the great GF storyboarders (see below for the original). Most obvious change, of course, was that I had to add Fiddleford. (For one thing I didn’t like that empty area in the left; but also, Fidds deserves to be there too. :)
And as always, remember, to quote Jason Ritter:
Gravity Falls is real, and it will never die.

Wendy gives Pacifica a Pep-talk made by @turquoisegirl35. It's part of an AU where, during their free time, Dipper, Mabel, Pacifica, and Wendy form a baseball team to try and get Dipper and Pacifica out of their shells.
In the AU, Wendy and Mabel try to boost Dipper's confidence by getting him to give playing baseball a shot. With their team finally underway, Pacifica's been hard at work trying to improve her skills. Wendy's taken it on herself to coach Pacifica personally and they've formed a pretty strong bond with Pacifica looking up to her as both her Coach and her Big Sister. However, for Pacifica, getting better has been proving to be more challenging than she thought but not cause of her lack of skills.
She's proven to be amazing at fielding with her speed and intuition but struggles especially in batting. She's gotten used to her swing in golf and shifting her move is proving to be quite challenging. Add to that, Pacifica has always been thoroughly praised for everything she did and was always pushed to the brink of perfection by her own parents and by Sergei when she was learning to play Mini-Golf. All she's ever known was praise and punishment for everything she's done. Failure is not an option for her and she's takes it quite hard. All that pressure Pacifica puts on herself builds up in her head until eventually she can't take it anymore and decides to throw in the towel. As the season progresses their competition heats up, Pacifica starts to feel the pressure. During one of their games, nearing the end of the game in a tight squeeze, Pacifica sees she's up to bat this inning. She asks to talk to Wendy on the side and Pacifica spills everything and says she can't do it cause she thinks she's no good, unlike everyone else on the team who have been doing super well in improving their game. She admits too she's thinking of quitting cause she thinks she's just weighing the team down. But Wendy's not about to take that kind of talk from, Pacifica. She's seen how Pacifica's had the time of her life, finally having a genuine set of friends to hang around with and finally having the chance to act like a real kid. Wendy, being Pacifica's coach and her pseudo-big sister, tells her that that's not the Pacifica she's come to know. She knows her little sister is far tougher and stronger than that. So what if she fails now and then? Everyone's gotta start somewhere and a few speed bumps shouldn't get her down. And just to prove her point, Wendy shows her how she's been progressing incredibly since they started and reminds that she should never let a few failures block out the things she's achieved and how far she's come. Besides, she's not just some girl, she's Pacifica Northwest, the one Northwest who managed to stand up to a vengeful ghost that plagued their family for years, the one Northwest who broke the family curse, and the one Northwest who stood up against her parents and put her foot down. If she could do that, then she can do anything! Wendy's talk seems to work and Pacifica seems to regain abit of her confidence. She steps up and belts out a solid hit! This is all so new to Pacifica, to have friends who actually liked her for who she really is, to have someone she looks up to and considers her own family support her no matter what, and to have someone believe in her even when she didn't believe in her self. Pacifica doesn't even care anymore if she's exhausted, sweaty, stinky, and dirty. She's now got a chance to live like a real kid, not like some exhibit her parents have made her out to be. Wendy's also shown to have matured even more from just the lazy teenager Stan hired as his cashier. She's now Pacifica's Coach, Mentor, and her de facto sister and she wouldn't trade anything for it. These 2 are on their way to becoming an unstoppable duo.
