Reaction - Dipper and Mabel Vs. The Future by Jaggid-Edge Reaction - Dipper and Mabel Vs. The Future by Jaggid-Edge
A few days late, but hey!

...what do you mean I'm leading a 10-3 rehearsal tomorrow? Hot Belgian Waffles, it's 2am!!!

So yeah, this was pretty much my reaction to DAMVTF...if you could suspend a little disbelief ;p

Obviously, I had a lot more to say about the episode, but nothing that could fit on a comic, particularly that Ford needs to wise up and realise what he's doing. But I was relieved to find so many people on Tumblr that felt the same way, including TheSnadger (thesnadger.tumblr.com/) , LogicalBookThief (logicalbookthief.tumblr.com/) , and of course Demona-Silverwing (demona-silverwing.tumblr.com/) (Go to either of these now! You will not be disappointed...if you haven't already ;P)

Crapness for quickness aka my new motto. Wanted to get this out coz I want to sketch out the theory I've had for a while, and DAMVTF has sort of reinforced it a bit. So excited! What a pity work and food and rent and mortgages and bills and such get in the way =(

Goodnight y'all! Seventeen musical numbers ain't gonna choreograph themselves =O

P.S. Goddammit Ford! I love you so much, but you are making it very difficult right now!

you know if I just saw the last panel by itself I would have thought Dipper's future daughter or something time traveled to the past beating up Stanford because she blames him for ruining the family in the future cause it all started with him

well, that's one of the things that I appreciate in GF. that the characters are allowed to be flawed do controversial things and the audience is allowed to think whatever they want of them.
This world has good people but none of them are perfect role models.

Saw this on tvtropes, thought I'd leave it here.

Someone is gonna give the Author a real talking-to for putting down Mabel and trying to break up the Mystery Twins by making Dipper his apprentice
. It might be Grunkle Stan, it might be Dipper, it might even be Mabel herself. Someone needs to give him hell for projecting his own feelings about his brother on Dipper and Mabel's relationship.
  • While that is a plausible issue, his offer is still realistically the best option for Dipper to move on, and anyone who attempts to do so will quickly be countered with sound reasoning. Such as learning to actually grow up. And the show prides itself on being realistic in a fantastic setting.
  • And honestly, everyone in this family needs a good talking-to in how they treat Dipper. Ford's influence may not be the healthiest, but don't forget that Dipper admitted he spent most of his time with Ford because yeah, he's cool, but he also didn't make fun of him like Stan or Mabel, both of whom have had a lot of time in the show dedicated to how they each really negatively affect Dipper's self-worth and insecurities in their own right, despite how much they clearly love him. People just seem more upset with Ford because Mabel and Stan are fan favorites and the inter-family drama between the Pines has had bigger consequences since Ford's arrival. This is a broken family that hasn't figured out how to function well under the strain of the circumstances they're in; nobody's relationship is healthy right now. Stan treated Dipper how he thinks his father treated him because he truly believes his father was invoking Tough Love instead of abuse (though ironically, his relationship with Dipper seems to be the best right now). Mabel pushes her brother's interests aside for the sake of her own and yet is so afraid of separation she stopped talking about her concerns with Dipper until the absolute worst moment, and even then chose to run away rather than discuss the issue. And now Ford is projecting onto Dipper and assuming he'd benefit from separating from Mabel because he honestly doesn't remember having a twin relationship that wasn't unhealthy. So while Ford should be called out for projecting his own problems onto Dipper (even though I don't believe he meant to do so maliciously), it would lookvery hypocritical unless the rest were called out for their respective treatments as well, which have all had an equally negative impact on Dipper personally, even if it didn't impact Mabel or their sibling relationship. While precious, a strong sibling relationship does not come before the emotional and psychological wellbeing of an individual, and Stan and Mabel had been alienating Dipper for a long time—Ford's presence just gave him somewhere else to go, and someone that respected and even returned his interests and quirks. While Ford has a lot of faults and has made a lot of mistakes, it's hard to blame Ford for breaking up the Pines family dynamic when there was a break in the making for a long time.

What break? Ford blames his the stunting of his individual development on Stan and projects it on to Mabel but when it comes to his own failings in developing socially he disregards them. He claims that he never got the chance to be independent despite the fact he moved to Gravity Falls and lived by himself for a decade. In that decade he destroyed his relationship with Fiddleford, made no contact with the townspeople and trusted a demon who used him in a scheme to bring hell to earth. Ford blames Stan and his bad childhood while avoiding any responsibility for his mistakes. Ford wants Dipper to be his assistant which means prioritizing research and no contact with the outside world unless it connects with their work. Ford brought his problems into the complicated Pines family dynamic but you downplay his issues and blame everything on Mabel and Stan.

I personally choose to blame everyone and not just one or two individuals. We can't say anything is conclusive considering the series isn't even over yet, but I did agree with this troper when they pointed out that Stan and Mabel have caused some problems and that Ford shouldn't take all of the blame.

The Pines family is to blame for what happened since they should have trusted each other and not kept secrets but Ford dragged them into this when he summoned Bill, made a pact with him to build the portal. The reason Bill knows about them is because Gideon mentioned he wanted to defeat Stan and Bill thought he was talking about Ford.

In all honesty, he had no idea it would get this far back then. But I'm glad to hear that everyone is to blame. I think it's amazing that modern cartoons have horribly flawed but likeable characters.

Oh come on, he just wanted to unlock Dippers potential. It's just like Stan toughening him up. Just preparing him for the future is all. Does Ford really deserve that kind of behavior? Though granted Dipper is only 12 and you shouldn't put a kid his age through those predicaments but even Dipper has shown he's capable of taking care of himself. And Ford just wants to bond with him because they have so much in common. Give him a break people. Though I do feel bad for Mabel in the end of the episode.

Stan's attempts to toughen up Dipper are shown to be emotional abuse but Ford's attempts to unlock Dipper's potential are considered okay but they are psychological projection since he sees Dipper as himself and Mabel as Stan.

LOL XD, excellent reactions & expressions, love how your toon self slowly gets up from the couch and goes Ring on Ford XD. Man, how many of us have wished we could just warp reality like that just to chew out a character who's ticked us off? XD

Ford's cool & all (I'm a big scifi fantasy nerd myself so usually his sort of character would be my fave lol), but I still like Stanley best, & like you I can't help but notice how while he does care about the twins, he is projecting his issues with Stanley onto them (especially Dipper), & Stanley's not as bad as he thinks...Still can't believe he designed a MIND CONTROL TIE for the kids to use on him a while back >_<

P.S. Ford has also not PUNCHED A PTERODACTYLE IN THE FACE yet! That's like a hundred and one coolness points right there, good luck matching that XD

Thanks very much! Good god, I haven't even thought about The. Ring for years. *shudders and huddles into foetal positions as childhood creepy sleepover memories come flooding back*

Yyyyeaaaah, that tie was a bit dodgy. "Morally ambiguous," Dipper? Nearly. More like morally WROOOOONG. I felt so sorry for Stan in that episode.  Bad enough feeling like he was always in his brother's shadow growing up, now his two favourite people in the world do THAT to him! :noes: My guess it was mostly an excuse to poke fun at your elections ;)

And hellz yeah Pterodactyl punch! If he can punch a dinosaur in the face, Ford, he can certainly give you what for, brother or no.

p.s. Re supernatural jump-punch, have you seen the promo? Bill punch!!! :D :D
