Something MissingI wasn't expecting much, but when that old bus pulled up in front of the Mystery Shack, it was a sad sight to see when the little 12-year old girl stepped off all by herself. She had an ugly green hat on her head, a duffel bag in one hand, and an overstuffed plush sheep in the other. When she got off the bus, she just stood there, like she had nowhere to go, and nobody cared.Something Missing2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Mabel? I called. The girl looked up at me. She reminded me of her mother at that age, the soft brown hair that reached down to her waist and the big chocolate eyes, but unlike her mother, there was no sparkle in those eyes. Instead they looked sad, almost pleading for something, something she knew no one could giver her.
Uncle Stan? She asked in a voice I wasn't sure was wary or weary.
Yep, that's me, call me your Grunkle, I said brightly, which felt awkward in front of her, 'Cuz I'm your great uncle, and when you put them together, eheh, yeah.

"What?" Dipper said in disbelief.
"You're lying!" Mabel accused, hoping what she had proclaimed was the truth.
"I'm sorry kids, I wish I was, but it's the truth; your parents are dead." their Great Uncle Stan told them.
He removed his Fez and held it to his chest.
"I'm sorry, but it looks like you'll be staying here with me" he told them "I'm the only member of the family left."
He got down on a knee to look at them both.
"But don't worry; I'll take care of you both. I'll be a better guardian than I've been these past few months. I'll make sure that you both grow up and live happy lives. I swear on my own life, cross my heart." He told them, looking into each of their eyes, and he crossed a finger over his chest.
He held out his arms to hug them, but they wouldn't have it.

Mabel hesitated, then turned and sprinted away.
"Get back here! STOP HER!" The Dipper impostor commanded.
Stan had been looking all night for his niece and nephew to no avail. The sun was beginning to come up as he found himself at the front door of the Mystery Shack again. Stan sighed heavily and sat on the porch. It was hopeless…it really was. Stan soon found he heard the sounds of a fire crackling out back. He looked up and saw smoke billowing towards the sky.
"Mabel?" he said hopefully, standing up, "Mabel, is that you?"
Stan walked around to the back of the Shack, but was surprised by what he saw.
As a matter of fact, Gideon himself was standing in the back yard tossing armfuls of sweaters into the fire pit.
"Gideon, what are you doing?" Stan rubbed his eye tiredly.
Gravity Falls 11: After Hours The voice filled Dipper's ears as he lurched over in the bed, he couldn't hear Mabel shout his name, or the others as they burst into the room.

"Excuse me, sir?" Grunkle Stan was gently shaken awake by the same slightly chubby nurse that had lead him to Dipper's room before.
"Whazit? I wasn't asleep!" Stan shouted, sitting up quickly.
"Mr. Pines, is it?" the nurse asked gently.
"Yeah, that's me," Stan glanced around before remembering where he was, "How's my nephew?"
"Mr. Pines, visiting hours are over, I'm going to have to ask you to go home now," the nurse said.
"How is my nephew?" Stan repeated forcefully.

"Is she dead?"
It was the kind of question that tears at your heart, but there was no hiding the answer.
"Yes, sweetie, she's dead. Was she your sister?"
He looked so small, standing next to the casket. Any other day, I would have guessed he was twelve, but now, dear mercy, now he seemed no more than a little child.
It's horrible to see someone so young die. I never knew the poor girl, but just looking at her little face brought tears to my eyes, and now, seeing her brother there, innocently asking if she's gone… I feared my heart would break to pieces.
"Are your parents here?"
"No, they are coming late."
The boy never took his eyes of the girl's peaceful face. I turned to look again at the pale skin, haloed by a head of thick brown hair, identical to the little boy's.
"Are you sure she's dead?" the child asked, still staring at her motionless figure.
"Yes, the doctors did everything they could, but she's gone," I was beginning

Mabel staggered through the forest, her vision clouded by tears.
"Dead…He's really dead," she thought to herself, almost hoping to hear Dipper's voice reply.
Mabel tripped over a stump and fell on her face. She lay there crying, letting all her sorrows and fears rush out of her and stain the ground along with her tears.
"I can't…I can't do it," she whispered. She lay there a moment longer, then forced herself to calm down, "No, I promised…I promised Dipper no matter what." Mabel picked herself up shakily and trudged on. She knew exactly where she was going…a place that already lodged bad memories for her…she was going to Gideon's abandoned factory.
Gravity Falls 18: Let's Make A Deal Is that the way its going to be? he asked in the voice of the book. Mabel gasped and suddenly, everything seemed to melt away.

Wait, what happened? Mabel asked, spinning around to see the nothingness around her. Suddenly she felt solid ground come beneath her, and then it felt as if she was going up. Mabel looked down to see she was on a type of platform that was rapidly climbing into the air, and at the same time, the bottom was falling away far below. It was mere seconds before Mabel couldnt even see the end, but all at once, it stopped.
Now youre on my home turf, lets talk business, said the voice of the book said. All at once, a strange pyramid-shaped person appeared beside Mabels platform. Mabel started and almost fell off from where

"I will break you"
Mabel tiptoed through the living room, any noises she made drowned out by either the 80's horror movie on the TV, or Grunkle Stan's snoring from the easy chair. That would explain how he slept through the noise upstairs.
Dipper had told her to take the book away, if not just for a minute, because he said the book was talking to him. Mabel told him she'd stash it downstairs. She hated lying to her brother, but she was fed up with watching him suffer. Mabel had slipped a sweater on and stole into the kitchen, took a small box down from one of the cupboards, then stepped outside, as quietly she could with the creaky door. It was still dark out, and Mabel could barely see where she was going, but she stumbled her way behind the shack until she found the place she was looking for. She opene

Stan sighed and ran his hand through his hair, "Mabel, you're brother's gone missing."
Dipper slowly blinked his eyes open. He winced and curled up as a wave of pain flowed through his body. Everything seemed to hurt and Dipper took deep breaths to try and calm his breathing. He opened his eyes again and realized it was dark, and he was outside, and very high. Dipper could see almost all of Gravity falls below him. Dipper took in the situation as best he could. It was late at night, that much was clear, and judging by the cold wooden platform under his cheek, he assumed he was up on the water tower. He was dressed in his everyday clothes, minus his hat, and he was curled up around the book. That, and it was cold out, very cold out. Dipper shivered and curled up closer around the book. He wanted to push it off the platform, but every muscle in his body was screaming to st

With grappling hook in one hand and a piece of caramel in the other, Mabel lured her pet pig into the shop. "Alright, Agent Waddles. This is the mission we've trained our whole lives for. We must stop the evil Dr. Dip from taking over the whole entire world!" She shot the grappling hook at the ceiling and swung to the other side of the room. "Here it is! The secret vault that holds Dr. Dip's evil, dastardly plans is beyond that door!"
"Not so fast!" Mabel and Waddle turned around to see Dipper emerge from behind the counter. "You cannot stop my plans! You cannot even escape! Behold! There's a trap door beneath you!" He pressed a button on the invisible remote control in his hand, but not before Mabel shot up at the ceiling once more, suspending herself above the unseen trap.

"He isn't feeling well," Mabel explained with a sniffle.
"Oh, and I suppose you're feeling just great," Stan rubbed his forehead.

"Well, some of our signs fell off in the storm yesterday, and I needed the two of you to hang them back up," Stan explained, pulling a box of nails out from under the desk.
"Oh…well," That was perhaps the last thing Mabel wanted to wind up doing. Not because it was a bad job, Mabel enjoyed using a hammer, but doing it alone could take a long time, and if something were to happen to Dipper…

Mabel looked up at her brother and quickly pulled away from her hug. Dipper's face had gone pale and he was nodding off with a pained look on his face.
"Dipper! No, not now!" Mabel grabbed his shoulders and held him up.
Dipper let out a gasp before he slipped into unconsciousness.
"I think he's coming to."
"Sh, he knows that."
"Dipper, can you hear me?"
Dipper awoke to see four familiar faces, and one he didn't recognize.
"Dipper! You're awake!" Mabel's cheeks were tear-streaked, but she was smiling.
"Thank goodness!" That was Soos.
"How ya feeling?" Grunkle Stan looked strangely concerned.
"We were worried," under normal circumstances, Dipper would have blushed to see Wendy look caringly at him like that.
"Stay still son," that was the face Dipper didn't recognize.
Stan must have read Dipper's confused expression, "You passed out and your sister wouldn't let up until we called a doctor," he explained.

Gravity Falls: Something StrangeIt was a relatively quiet night in Gravity Falls. There were the usual sounds of wind in the trees, the scuffling of animals, the creaking of the shabby buildings that littered the area, and in the case of the Mystery Shack residents, the loud snoring of Stan Pines. It took some time at first, but the twins had learned how to sleep through the obnoxious sound. Mabel was softly muttering something in her sleep, her hand resting gently on her pet pig, and Dipper lay perfectly still, with only the book numbered "3" on his chest rising and falling with each breath. The sleepy scene was broken however, when without warning, Dipper shot up in his bed with a gasp, flinging the maroon journal to the floor with a loud whack. Mabel twitched, and then lay still again, but Dipper sat up in his bed, panting slightly, and staring at nothing in particular. He broke his stare and glanced all around the room, his eyes finally resting on the book, which had flipped open and landed funny on the floor besGravity Falls: Something Strange3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The ambulance probably had woken the entire town of Gravity Falls, but most of the inhabitants rolled over and covered their ears, and some poked their heads out of the windows to see if they could figure out where it was going. Only one person got up and dressed in a hurry. Wendy threw a jacket on over her outfit and slipped on her boots. She made hardly a sound as she made her way to the door, not like her family could hear her over their own thunderous snoring. Quietly, she slipped outside and yanked her younger brother's bike onto the road and peddled out into the night.
