I sent a prompt but I guess tumblr ate it? Would you ever write about Dipper and Mabel Pines in Narnia? Possibly with Wendy and Stan/Soos to round out the four regents thing, if that was an interesting direction?

Yeah, I definitely did not get this one, to-someplace-else. Thanks for resending it 🙂

Hm, let’s see… if I were to do a Gravity Falls x Narnia crossover… I think it would just be the twins. Don’t get me wrong, I love the other characters, but I think for something like a Narnia misadventure just the twins would be best.

Some things I’ve decided:

This is after the events of the series. Maybe a few years? Teen!Twins, who have spent a few more summers after that disastrous-yet-glorious one acting as mediators between the supernatural and the human in Gravity Falls or even spent a some time helping out on the Stan-o-War.

I don’t think they are there to fulfill the four regents prophecy. Not just for numerical reasons, but because I think it’d be more interesting for them to retain what they’ve learned. They’re coming in as the most experienced travelers to Narnia and I think for Narnia/Aslan to bring them there it must be for that reason.

They are not there to rule, they’re there to help. Or, rather, to offer their services–for payment, of course, never mind that they won’t be able to bring stuff back, they are Stanley Pines’ relatives. Like Eustace and Jill, they do not become king and queen. They are there for a specific purpose/quest.

Or maybe quests, plural? I have two different ideas for what this fic might be? So the first is more lighthearted, a series of “case fics” as it were. The Pines Twins show up frequently during the Pevensie’s reign and are dispatched to solve this or that issue around Narnia. Agents of the crowns, basically. Or Knights. So them asking for payment sort of makes sense if they’re going to come back?

The second is a little bleak, a one shot more likely, set after the Pevensies leave and the Telmarines start to invade/conquer Narnia. They’re not there to rule, they’re there to save lives. They have to teach Narnians–who have, before the Telmarines arrived, been used to being full citizens and have forgotten how to hide from an evil ruler–how to survive. Or they help smuggle Narnians to Archenland who haven’t entirely forgotten the alliance with the Pevensies.

I suppose the two aren’t mutually exclusive?

That being said, while it is a cool idea to play around with I don’t know if I’d actually ever write it… mostly because my Descendants x Narnia crossover fic has been a nonstarter and I don’t know how this one would fare any better.

Hm, sorry to-someplace-else… but do send in more if you feel like it! You know I love answering prompts 😀

Actually, could I prompt you for something in the Gravity Falls universe, by any chance? I discovered that show this summer and I am so. thirsty. for new fic.

Gravity Falls is an amazing show, definitely, but I kind of wonder if maybe it’s too amazing–is such a thing makes sense. Like it’s very comprehensively satisfying–there’s not many loose ends or critical points that I want to change. Kind of like Leverage (which I adore) it’s a perfectly compact blend of world-building and characters that I’m not sure what, if anything, I could do with it. As much as I love Leverage I hardly ever read any fic for it because the show is so much more satisfying.

At most, maaaybe future fic, but even then it’s kind of… or maybe past fic about either one of the Grunkles’ adventures? Hm…

Having considered it, I suppose my question to you would be if you’d want GF universe fic or GF character fic which are very different things indeed.

I mean, canonically, Ford DID travel through endless dimensions–though the “main world” is itself already absolutely fascinating and with a multitude of (im)possibilities, and surely Gravity Falls can’t be the ONLY hot spot of bizarre supernatural activity.

Then again, a huge part of what makes the show so great is the characters and the idea of this family–both blood and found–of misfits loving and supporting each other while also still having conflicts is something that can easily crossover to any AU.

Which is a fairly popular idea given the number of AUs floating around–with fantastic artwork attached!–I think my favorite is the Fullmetal Alchemist crossover/fusion by @mistrel-fox

I don’t really have any fic recs for GF either, so… ¯_(ツ)_/¯

JackSGreyson’s First Embroidery Project!

(or, as my family has been referring to it: Baby’s First Embroidery. Which… I’m not even the baby of the family and it’s not like any of them embroider so…)

This one in particular is going to be a gift for family, but I’m wondering if anyone would be interested in buying something like this? Not this pattern, necessarily, but I have been considering doing maybe a Gravity Falls Prophecy circle

You can hang it up to freak out your relatives, or to warn future generations how to stop an insane demon from another dimension.

Or, well, I’d be willing to do other patterns, probably, if I can find them. Or if you want to send it to me. Something. I dunno, if anyone’s interested we can discuss.

The Lavaeudeen School of Magick or rather, the North American School of Sorcery and Enchantment, is much less rigid than it’s British counterpart. While it does sort students into different houses, it doesn’t factor much into students’ every day lives beyond administration purposes. All students of each year live together, regardless of house, and classes are organized by skill not age. It makes inter-house and even inter-year friendships much easier, though seeing as how most students are thrust into a new environment, they tend to migrate towards those they already know.

So it’s not surprising that it took two years for Norman Babcock and Dipper Pines to meet. To begin with, they were in different years–the Pines twins being a year above Norman–and different houses. Norman had been sorted into Hawkridge, the house of honesty, intelligence, and patience. Dipper had been sorted into Bearglove, which encouraged bravery, curiosity and leadership in its students. Norman, descended from the Prenderghast family, specialized in Divination and Extrasensory Perception. Dipper, in contrast, preferred the more physical supernatural sciences such as Magical Flora and Fauna.

If anything, it was surprising that they met at all, considering Lavaeudeen’s population size. Those two years had been filled with near misses, like broomsticks passing in the night. They had overlapping social circles and had heard of each other, but never actually met.

During Norman’s first year he, like most other first years, clung to those he already knew. Which meant that, except for his Wolfthorn-sorted best friend, Neil Downe, he sought out his cousin Coraline Jones despite the age and house difference (she was two years older and sorted into Lionpride). She rather welcomed it, having only one other close friend herself, one Wyborn Lovat of Foxcrest house.

Although the cousins would have been content with that, their social circle grew nonetheless.

The earlier statement about houses not factoring much into students’ everyday lives was perhaps an overly generalized statement. House sorting doesn’t affect what students have to do, but like any unifying label, people enjoy connecting with similar people. So really, their tiny multi-house group of four should have expected to increase via house networking. What was unexpected were which houses. And considering how shy both Norman and Wybie were.

But Lili Zanotto was difficult to deter on good days, impossible to refuse otherwise, and Mabel Pines was some kind of all-powerful force unto herself. And with them came their respective, male, Bearglove counterparts–Lili’s boyfriend, Raz, and Mabel’s brother Dipper.

It’s funny that it took so long for Norman and Dipper to meet, funnier that they were the last to meet within their group of eight (although the way Neil and Raz met was far more hilarious). Because they sure as hell were getting along quite nicely, if the blushing and handholding were any indication.

A/N: Ha! That’s right, I did a Mystery Kids x Lavaeudeen crossover in order to ship Parapines. Am I late to all three fandoms? Yes, yes I am.

For those of you who have no idea what some of those are, and are unsure of where to go looking for that let me give you a quick rundown:

Mystery Kids is the fantastic crossover of Paranorman, Gravity Falls, Coraline, and Psychonauts. Specifically of each movie/show/game’s two respective main kids. There’s a fan-created show (only one so far), which is pretty rad. There’s also two(?) blogs for it on tumblr, here and here.

Lavaeudeen is the “American Hogwarts” and the houses are, funnily enough, based on the Old Spice deodorant types: Foxcrest, Hawkridge, Bearglove, Wolfthorn, and Lionpride. The characteristics and amazing backstories of the first four houses can be found here, the fifth one I tried do justice since the OP didn’t know Lionpride existed at the time. There’s also a general Lavaeudeen tumblr, here.

And finally Parapines… I’m honestly not sure if that’s the crossover name or a ship name but it seems to be used interchangeably for the crossover strictly between Paranorman and Gravity Falls, and the ship between Norman and Dipper Pines (and/or Mabel Pines?)

But… yeah. Hahaha… I’ve had all three on my mind so I guess it was just… SQUISH THEM ALL TOGETHER.

Now for the headcanons which are behind this drabble:

Norman and Neil are the youngest, Hawkridge and Wolfthorn respectively.

Raz, Lili, and the Pines twins are a year older–Raz and Dipper are again both in Bearglove while Lili is Hawkridge and Mabel is Foxcrest.

Coraline and Wybie are the oldest, Lionpride and Foxcrest respectively.
